Lily Collins is the it-girl of the summer, while promoting her latest film Mortal Instruments: City of Bones. She’s been hitting the red carpet, making talk show appearances, & showing off her youthful & daring style, establishing herself as one of the most in-demand Style Darlings of the summer! She’s on trend with cut-outs, high-low hemlines, ankle-strap pumps, & bold red lips, all while donning duds by designers like Cushnie et Ochs, Valentino, Roland Mouret, Paper London, & Versace! While she’s known for her thick eyebrows, I’m starting to see more & more classic style from the young actress, with influences like Grace Kelly, Elizabeth Taylor, & Audrey Hepburn!

What do you think of Lily’s red carpet style? Which actress are you looking out for this summer? Is Mortal Instruments on your must-have movie list?

Watch This Style: Helena Bonham Carter Stars As Elizabeth Taylor In ‘Burton & Taylor!’


Burton & Taylor

The memory of Elizabeth Taylor can finally thrive on the big screen with the latest BBC movie, Burton & Taylor, which documents the twice-divorced couple the theater for their 1983 production of Private Lives. In this short first look at the made-for-television movie, I’m super impressed by Helena Bonham Carter‘s spot-on representation of the violet-eyed movie legend. Also, Dominic West as Burton seems a good match against HBC who captures Taylor’s every seductive & playful stare. The film will premiere on July 22nd so check your local listings & set up your DVRs!

Are you looking forward to seeing this movie? Do you think Helena Bonham Carter was a good choice for the lead role?

Cover Craze: Shakira Sizzles For ELLE’s July Issue, Katy Perry Makes Her Vogue Debut, & More!


It’s definitely going to be one hot summer, especially when it comes to the latest magazine covers. I’ve been trying to squeeze in some mag time & get inspired for some new summer looks & what to look forward to with my upcoming vacation wardrobe. However, I couldn’t help but share the latest & greatest in store for July, especially when the headlines there’s so much to talk about!

First, Shakira hits up ELLE, talking about her position as coach on The Voice, along with motherhood, her relationships, & her international fame. Also, another foreign beauty is Salma Hayek Pinault on the cover of InStyle‘s July issue. The dazzling 46-year-old actress has really never looked better, especially in this stunning Yves Saint Laurent red dress. The third & perhaps most exciting cover belongs to Katy Perry who makes her Vogue debut, showing off a stunning & feminine side to the popstar in floral frocks like her cover look by Rodarte. Lauren Conrad talks up her ambition & goals as both fashion designer & writer in the sunny pages of Marie Claire, while also giving plenty of tips on how to look summer-ready with bangs.

Man of Steel starlet Amy Adams is not only this summer’s big-screen Lois Lane, but she talks beauty in the pages of Allure, sharing that her plain face makes for a great makeup canvas. Speaking of beauty, Pretty Little Liars actress Lucy Hale makes her Lucky debut with a slew of edgy menswear looks, including pieces by Chanel, that are easy for any shopper of any budget to achieve! Helena Bonham Carter may be Tim Burton’s muse, but she’s certainly bemusing in the pages of Vogue UK, especially since images have recently hit the web of her playing the iconic role of Elizabeth Taylor for the upcoming BBC movie Burton and Taylor. Lastly, Kesha makes fitness look sexy, especially with a minimalist take on activewear fashions in next month’s Self. The blonde singer has never looked more naturally gorgeous as she talks about how she keeps her gams in shape!

Ad Madness: Scarlett Johansson Heads To Broadway In ‘Cat On A Hot Tin Roof!’


I was super excited when I read my email this morning & discovered that Tony-winning actress Scarlett Johansson was returning to Broadway next year.  She’s headlining a revival of Tennessee Williams’ iconic drama, Cat On A Hot Tin Roof, which had been famously brought to the big screen with legends Elizabeth Taylor & Paul Newman.  Previews for the play begin December 18th & it will open for the public on January 17th, which means that tickets will go quick for this 15-week limited-time run.

A few years ago, I saw Scarlett make her Broadway debut in Arthur Miller’s A View From The Bridge, which took my breath away, thus leading to her Tony win, so you can be sure that I’m going to do everything in my power to get a ticker (& an affordable one) to catch one of my favorite plays of all time, starring one of my favorite actresses!

You may be asking, where’s the style in all of this? Well, for those of you who don’t know, the play’s protagonist, Maggie the Cat, is famous for wearing a seductive slip dress for most of the play & we can keep an eye out on Scarlett’s red carpet appearances while promoting her latest dramatic effort.  Happy Styling!

Watch This Style: The Trailer For Lifetime’s “Liz & Dick” Starring Lindsay Lohan As Elizabeth Taylor!


The world keeps giving Lindsay Lohan another chance, even though her reckless behavior & poor attempts at a comeback keep making headlines, but here’s something to chew on. We all heard that the Lifetime network cast the Long Island native in Liz & Dick, where Lindsay plays the late & great Elizabeth Taylor, opposite Grant Bowler (previously seen in Ugly Betty as Vanessa Williams’ character’s boyfriend, Connor) as twice-divorced husband, Richard Burton. Well, by the looks of the trailer for the TV movie, Lindsay can certainly pull off the black wig, overdone eye makeup, & vintage clothing, but we’ll have to see an actual scene before we can judge her in the role. Of course, we’ll have to wait until November, but here’s a taste of the long-awaited portrayal.
