Jennifer Lopez is the Prettiest in the Prettiest Pink Poof Dress!


Jennifer Lopez can’t do just one thing & I’m so glad for it. For her newest film, Second Act, she not only stars in & produced it, but also sings the power anthem “Limitless” (penned by Sia). She also directed the yet-to-be released music video (also starring her daughter Emme) & has taken the fashion world by storm once again at the New York City premiere of the film. She wore a breathtaking pink Giambattista Valli high low tulle gown (from the brand’s Fall 2018 Couture runway collection) with a train that rivals anyone else in gown train history (Priyanka Chopra… Princess Diana…) styled with silver accessories including a Judith Leiber clutch & Jimmy Choo platforms, as well as jewelry by Lorraine Schwartz. The play on volume & length in such a bold statement color only makes the dress more amazing to gawk at.

The ethereal design floated down the Fall 2018 runway & has now made history. Perhaps all those sparkly naked dresses are out & voluminous tulle dresses are in?

What do you think of J.Lo’s big pink dress? Is it too big? Not big enough? For more celebrity-inspired posts, click here, here, here, & here. Happy Styling!

Red Carpet Review: Funny Lady Leslie Mann Steps Out In Style!


This slideshow requires JavaScript.

So this isn’t my typical gallery… Funny lady Leslie Mann, best known for her roles in Knocked Up & The Change-Up, has been hitting red carpets under the radar for quite some time now.  However, the actress (& wife to director Judd Apatow) is climbing the style ranks, especially after several appearances during Paris Fashion Week.  I put together a little collection of some of her best looks from recent events & a few years ago.  The svelte blonde turned 40 years old this year, but is looking better than ever with the classic elegance of a veteran red carpet regular.  My favorite look is her Armani Prive LBD! Kudos to Leslie Mann! Happy Styling!

Watch out Aniston, Lopez, & Garner- there’s a new Jennifer on the block! It’s true, the world is talking about last year’s Academy Award nominee for Winter’s Bone, Jennifer Lawrence.  Her upcoming action thriller, The Hunger Games, is expected to break big box office records and make the young actress a household name.  She’s been on the style radar for quie some time & I’m happy to share with readers a gallery of some of her best looks since her debut in the spotlight last year.

She’s a big fan of designers Prabal Gurung and Calvin Klein, but with long gams like hers & beautiful long, blonde locks, it’s no wonder she’s currently topping “best dressed” lists all over the world! Take a look at the gallery & let us know which looks are your favorites! Surely, this won’t be the last that we see of the Kentucky-native, so check out more from Red Carpet Review! Happy Styling!

Luxury Look-Alikes for Less: Get Embellished With A Clutch from Forever 21 or by Judith Leiber @Neiman Marcus!


My apologies, Style Darlings, for the long-awaited return of my style posts.  This holiday season has demanded much of my time & now that I’m officially done with all school & baking obligations, I can devote more time to the best picks for the end of the year celebration.  What better way to do that than with a return to Luxury Look-Alikes for Less?!

If you’re looking for the best New Year’s Eve accessory as you’re making plans for a fabulous party, check out these two clutches, which vary in price by a wide margin!  Of course, there’s a certain je-ne-sais-quoi about the luxe design of a clutch by accessories-designer-to-the-stars, Judith Leiber, especially when it comes to this fizzy studded envelope clutch ($1595.00) from Neiman Marcus.  However, since we’re Style Darling son a budget, you can carry on the same embellished feel with the glamour pearl clutch bag ($14.80) from Forever 21, while saving yourself lots of money.  What’s so great about both of these bags is that they’re flashy enough for a girl’s night out, a more formal event, or for cocktail hour.  Remember: Style Darlings should always get the most out of their wardrobe & accessories, so let’s make that our resolution for 2012!  Happy Styling!

Color Me Style / Red Carpet Review: Ravishing Red for Kate Winslet, Nina Dobrev, & More at the 2011 Emmy’s (Part One)!


At this week’s 63rd Annual Primetime Emmy Awards, RED was the color to wear on the red carpet!  Sometimes red is a tricky color to wear b/c you could blend in, but none of these ladies went unnoticed!  I don’t think I’ve ever seen red look so good, especially on these stars who play with shades of apple, crimson, scarlet, & cherry!

Adrianne Palicki went for a vintage starlet feel in a sweetheart halter gown with a high slit, keeping her hair simple with elegant diamonds.  Connie Britton showed that you don’t have to be twenty years old to look exquisite on the red carpet, in a flowing chiffon gown with drop earrings & bangles.  Lea Michele revealed to E! that she wanted to keep her look simple, but this Marchesa column gown is super chic & flattering on the petite actress with a big voice.  Her straightened hair is the perfect finishing touch to such a glamorous & effortless look.  Kerry Washington presented in a strapless Zuhair Murad gown with a matching clutch & pair of heels by the one & only, Jimmy Choo.

Nina Dobrev made a splash in this red Donna Karan gown with accented diamonds by Neil Lane, a Judith Leiber clutch, & Brian Atwood stilettos.  Sofia Vergara was one of the most talked about nominees & definitely wowed in a scarlet Vera Wang curve-hugging gown with Colombian emerald chandelier earrings.  And last, but not least, Kate Winslet, my favorite nominee of the night, looked polished in a red form-fitting Elie Saab gown with a soft updo & diamond drop earrings.

Check out our previous Red Carpet Review posts, as well as the fun color-themed posts in Color Me Style!  Who wore red the best? Who was your favorite winner of the night?  Be sure to check back this week while I post more & more about Sunday night’s ceremony! Happy Styling!

Red Carpet Review: Jayma Mays Promoting ‘The Smurfs’!


I’m totally loving all the latest images (courtesy of In Style) of Glee star Jayma Mays, who is currently promoting her newest film, The Smurfs.  She’s got that girl-next-door thing down, but knows how to keep it classy & sexy.

Jayma shows off her legs in a bright green Reem Acra mini dress with Ferragamo pumps, BaubleBar earrings & a Judith Leiber clutch at the film’s New York premiere. While filming a segment for the Young Hollywood Studio in Los Angeles, the perky actress donned a casual orange & white striped belted dress with layers of chains. During an event at Confederacy in L.A., Jayma sports head-to-toe Rebecca Minkoff, including a belted blue blazer, & purple mini skirt. Upon arrive in NY, she made an appearance at a mock Smurfs village in Central Park wearing a Rebecca Minkoff blouse & shorts with Aldo pumps & Jamie Wolf earrings. Lastly, while at the Empire State Building with co-star Neil Patrick Harris, wearing a Tibi blazer & shorts with a Polo Ralph Lauren shirt, & Aldo pumps.
