1/28/11 Darling of the Day: Kate Mara in a Kenneth Cole LBD!


Kate Mara may be an actress that you don’t know right away, but if you’ve had your eye on all the latest fashion magazines, the sister of the upcoming The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo star Rooney Mara, is about the blow up on the Hollywood radar.  She co-starred alongside James Franco in the Oscar-nominated 127 Hours.  Not to mention, having a small role in Iron Man 2, as well as Entourage, Kate is the newest redhead in town.  She didn’t just show up on the scene though, as this look is from 2008.  She’s wearing a Kenneth Cole tank dress with a leather motorcycle jacket, a red clutch, & embellished peep toe pumps.  She combines casual & chic, a touch of femininity & some roughness.  And she’s no stranger to fashion!  This look can easily be replicated to bring new life to your basic LBD.

1/17/2011 Darling of the Day: Emmanuelle Chriqui!


Entourage starlet Emmanuelle Chriqui rang in 2011 with some basic black & a splash of sparkle.  She’s wearing a Bird by Juicy Couture sleeveless blouse with skinny Habitual Denim leggings and platform booties.  She kept her accessories simply chic with bangles & drop earrings.  I choose a tank & a bib necklace to create the same effect as Emmanuelle’s top, which is a quick fix to dress up any basic. These boots are more ornate than the pictured pair, but they’re by Christian Siriano (yes, Project Runway winner) & they’re fabulous!  Also, they’re available at Payless, so you can’t go wrong with that!
