Fashion Flashback: Zendaya’s Most Gorgeous Green Outfits & Dresses for Her 26th Birthday!


Zendaya is the ultimate style chameleon, appearing confident, innovative, flawless, strong, & feminine all at the same time always! It’s not an easy feat, especially at 26 years old! The Euphoria actress’ style easily ranks among top A-listers, like Diane Kruger, Blake Lively, Rihanna, Jennifer Lopez, & Sarah Jessica Parker! However, in lieu of a lengthy gallery of all of Zendaya’s glorious red carpet looks, I picked out some of my favorites, which have a common factor of being green, which is definitely the Emmy winner’s most flattering & boldest hue to wear. From a bright kelly green to olive to mint & everything in between, the Dune star makes a fashionable & memorable statement!

What’s even more special about Zendaya’s green palette is that the pieces in green she wears highlight her natural beauty & create a conversation about wearing what makes you feel good versus what is expected. Whether it’s a print, pant, head-to-toe look, fabulous coat, or gown, green isn’t going away any time soon, nor is it only for holidays!

Now that the Golden Globes have been analyzed to death, we can look forward to the stars celebrating awards season in between shows (we’ve yet to see what’s going to happen on the red carpets from the SAG Awards & Oscars!). However, a big trend at the Globes was the color black & it seems it has returned to the red carpet & the celebrities are loving it! I’ve always been a fan of a classic LBD, but here we see all sorts of black making a major statement.  This includes my favorite looks from Krysten Ritter in a peek-a-boo dress & then Krysten Ritter again in a Dior jacket with a pencil skirt & Brian Atwood shoes.  Also, other favorites include Ashley Greene‘s leather peplum look, Scarlett Johansson‘s Dolce & Gabbana outfit with Irene Neuwirth earrings, & Miranda Kerr‘s continuously enviable street style, accessorized by Givenchy & Barbara Bui.

I’m also sharing looks by Anne Hathaway in a striped dress ensemble with a Stella McCartney faux leather bag, Elisabeth Moss‘ leather look with leopard pumps, Emmy Rossum in a sweet polka dot dress by Theia, Naomi Watts‘ appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno in a Roland Mouret LBD with Rupert Sanderson sandals, & Renee Zellweger at a Hugo Boss event in Berlin in a halter dress with Christian Louboutin spiked pumps.

Designer’s Best: AnnaSophia Robb, Kristen Stewart, Hailee Steinfeld, & More In Louis Vuitton’s Checkered Print!


One of the most memorable galleries that I posted from Paris Fashion Week was of the Louis Vuitton Spring 2013 Ready-To-Wear Collection, which featured a breathtakingly refreshing look at checkered prints. These looks, which have certainly made their mark on fashion, have been seen all of the red carpets since, proving that Louis Vuitton is a brand worth knowing beyond their famous handbags.

Kirsten Dunst chose the rust & white combination to wear while attending The 2013 Art of Elysium Heaven Gala, accessorizing the look with pointy matching Jimmy Choo pumps. InStyle cover girl Jessica Alba showed her support for the magazine at their Golden Globes after-party with black patent leather pumps by Casadei. It-girl Kerry Washington showed her flirty & feminine side in a pastel version at a Berlin press event for her latest film, Django Unchained, with a VC Signature clutch & towering white & metallic pointy toe pumps. Actress Hailee Steinfeld made an entrance in a romper at a Vitamin Water / Sally Hansen-sponsored event, while celebrating her 16th birthday!Kirsten Dunst, Jessica Alba, Kerry Washington, Hailee Steinfeld, Berenice Bejo, Kristen Stewart & AnnaSophia Robb.

1/27/2011 Darling of the Day: Eva Longoria at this year’s Golden Globes!


Eva Longoria was my favorite at this year’s Golden Globe awards, hands down (Olivia Wilde was a close second)!.  She went old school Hollywood in this all-black Zac Posen cap sleeve dress with an embellished belt.  For a petite actress, the dress really captures her curvy figure, and she doesn’t get swallowed up by the solid color or length.  Wearing Neil Lane jewels and accessorizing with a black rectangular clutch, she stole the show for the black dresses.  Part of what’s so spectacular about this look is that even though she had trouble walking in it during the ceremony, she showed off her natural confidence as her best asset.  I was so happy to see this design knocked off at an affordable price & it would be my first pick to try on for an upcoming formal event.

1/22/11 Darling of the Day: Natalie Portman at the Golden Globes!


At this year’s Golden Globes ceremony, Natalie Portman was the talk of the town as a favorite.  Her performance in Black Swan has earned her some serious Oscar buzz & her red carpet styles while promoting the film have offered up some glamorous fashoin cred.  After recently announcing her engagement & pregnancy, everyone in the world wanted a picture of the actress showing off her baby bump.  Here in a sweetly youthful, yet classic pink Viktor & Rolf strapless dress, a single red rose detail is carefully placed at the bustline.  Natalie glows like a joyful & elegant mother-to-be.  She’s decked out in a delicate string necklace & stud earrings, sporting a red Dior cluth, & hot red platform sandals.
