08/24/2022 Darling of the Day: Selena Gomez as Mabel Mora in the Season 2 Finale of Only Murders in the Building!


We finally know who killed Bunny Folger! Don’t worry—no major spoilers areas. Just some fashion talk!

As many of you may have already seen, the epic season 2 finale of Only Murders in the Building is now available on Hulu, resolving & shocking audiences with hints as to what’s to come for the already highly anticipated third season!

During the episode, Mabel Mora, played spectacularly by Selena Gomez, attends a Broadway production in a stunning one-shoulder emerald satin gown with a high slit.

Images for a full view of the dress are not yet available online, but that doesn’t mean we can’t take inspiration from Mabel’s vintage chic style & the wondrous costume designing of Emmy nominee Dana Covarrubias.

While we all don’t have luxurious lifestyles or red carpet events to attend, keeping that special gown or evening look in the back of your closet is always a good idea—just in case. Unsure of who actually designed Mabel’s show-stopping gown, I surfed the web to offer up these high-end versions, even though Mabel’s right arm is visibly out:

SHOP: Stephany dress with belt in olive green @Pernia’s Pop-Up Shop ($271.00, available in sizes XS-6XL) & Pryce off-the-shoulder column dress in dark green @Anthropology ($495.00, available in sizes 0-16).

For the budget-conscious Style Darling who’s loving Mabel’s jewel-tone choice, here are some more affordable options to capture the ease & drama of the look:

SHOP: For the Night satin one-shoulder dress in dark teal @Lulu’s ($98.00, available in sizes XS-XL), Simply Beautiful one-shoulder cut-out maxi dress in dark green @Lulu’s ($72.00, available in sizes XS-XL), Rhiannon one-shoulder satin long dress in hunter @Windsor ($59.90, available in sizes XS-XL), & KOH KOH long one-shoulder maxi dress in green @Amazon ($49.95, available in sizes S-5XL).

What do you think of the second season of Only Murders in the Building? Did you watch the finale yet? What are your season 3 predictions?

Fashion Flashback: Cara Delevingne’s Best Pants Looks for Her 30th Birthday!


While there are so many fabulous & swoon-worthy red carpet gowns to post about, a suit or pant look is a modern, daring, & stylish take on representing one’s self, as well as appearing professional with an edge. Case in point: model / actress Cara Delevingne (currently on the second season of Only Murders in the Building) celebrates her 30th birthday today & I can’t think of anyone more fashionable who pulls off suit & pants looks with more polish & punk than her.

The Paper Towns star often coordinates her pants with lace or cut-out blouses, crop tops, no top at all, corsets or body paint, decadent jewelry, strappy shoes, or towering heels. She’s the most rock & roll model / actress on the red carpet today & I can’t wait to see what she does next: in her career & with her androgynous style.

Cara can be seen next in the action film The Climb & thriller Punk! What do you think of Cara’s style? Do you opt for menswear inspiration over a tradition dress?

08/06/2022 Darling of the Day: Selena Gomez’s Glitzy Orange Sequin Set by LaPointe!


Maybe between Only Murders in the Building & Selena + Chef, I have a little girl crush on Selena Gomez, but who doesn’t? Really? The 30-year-old star continues to celebrate her glamorous arrival into the next chapter of her life while in Italy with rumored beau Andrea Iervolino, making a stylish & sparkling statement in a LaPointe orange sequin tank (shop here) & coordinating Bermuda shorts (shop here).

The look is glamorous, unapologetic, mature, & timeless for a young woman living it up in Capri, a celebrity hotspot as of late, & shopping at YSL. Additionally, the actress’s look includes slide heels (shop similar here), drop earrings (shop similar here), & Vintage Frames sunglasses (shop similar here).

However, finding an affordable & comparable look inspired by these LaPointe pieces is somewhat difficult (try Poshmark or Mercari for similar separates too), but if a shoulder-to-knee sequins may be a bit much for you, think about coordinating the sparkle with satin for a luxurious & comfortable outfit. I’ve selected the pieces below for inspiration, even though an orange set is hard to find for a budget. Also, keep scrolling for suggested accessories too!

SHOP: sequin embellished best top in orange @River Island ($56.00, available in sizes 2-14), Liangchenmei sequin sparkle cami in rose gold @Walmart ($17.49, available in sizes S-XXXXL), & Rachel Roy Erica satin tank top in orange @Walmart ($41.36, available in limited sizes).

SHOP: contrast sequin drawstring shorts in rose gold @Shein ($14.00, available in sizes XS-L), A New Day high rise satin pull-on shorts in orange @Target ($20.00, available in sizes XS-XXL), & satin paper bag waist tailored shorts in orange @Boohoo (on sale: $18.00, available in sizes 6-10).

SHOP: Rosemarie Collections double teardrop dangle earrings @Amazon ($22.99), square frame fashion sunglasses in black @Shein ($6.00), & A New Day Basil heels in brown @Target ($ 34.99).

About 15 years ago, I would’ve totally donned a look like this—which is not to say that it’s out of style; it’s just not my personal aesthetic. I can still appreciate it & applaud Selena’s fashion choices when it comes to neon hues & unexpected glam! When on vacation, it’s fun to express a different side of yourself to explore a new city or open yourself up to someone knew, all through style! What do you think of Selena’s outfit? Would you wear all-over sequins in a matching set like this? Is orange a color you gravitate towards for summer?

Watch This Style: Selena Gomez Goes to Malibu for HBO Max’s Selena + Chef’s Season 4!


It won’t be long before actress (& Emmy-nominated producer), Grammy-nominated singer, & Rare Beauty entrepreneur Selena Gomez will be dominating 2 streaming services with Only Murders in the Building continuing its second season on Hulu, as well as the return of Selena + Chef on HBO Max for a 4th season, boasting lots of fun & food love already, at least based on the trailer below. The celebrity chef-in-progress takes her gaggle of gal pals to an already screen-seasoned Malibu beach house, where both Hannah Montana & Big Little Lies were filmed. Famous chefs / mentors set to appear with Selena on the show include familiar faces to the kitchen, such as Adrienne Cheatham, Devonn Francis, Gordon Ramsay, Kristen Kish, Ludo Lefebvre, Matty Matheson, Nick DiGiovanni, Paola Velez, Priya Krishna, & Rachael Ray!

There are 2 very remarkable accomplishments for Selena + Chef:

1. The show launched in August 2020 for 10 seasons that were meant to connect audiences during a time of disconnection; streaming, food, & entertainment served as society’s escape from the pandemic. As a result, newcomers to the kitchen identified with Selena’s unfamiliarity with certain foods, skills, & utensils. Whether you were watching from the comfort of your couch or taking notes to recreate the dish yourself, everyone bonded as Selena learned to cook virtually with a variety of celebrity chefs.

2. As these celebrity chefs share their love of food & culture, a range of charities found a platform for awareness & “the series has raised $400,000” in donations to “26 nonprofit organizations,” according to People. As Selena cooks up some laughs & indulges in the spices & sweets, she’s shining a much-deserved spotlight on underprivileged communities, mental health issues, liked-minded foodies, & more!

Lastly, I’m most excited about 2 things this season: 1. Watching more of Selena’s kitchenware line Our Place x Selena, which includes 2 innovative, all-purpose items: a pan for always & a pot for always in 11 different colors! Now, that’s style! 2. What Selena wears in the kitchen!

Have you been watching Selena + Chef? Have you tried any of the recipes featured on the show? Are you excited about the 4th season in Malibu that premieres on August 18th?

Fashion Flashback: Selena Gomez’s Best Looks for Her (Belated) 30th Birthday!


Selena Gomez has been in the spotlight for most of her life & it seems like she’s only getting started! She’s a talented actress in films like Spring Breakers or shows like Only Murders in the Building, sensational singer like in her Spanish album Revelacion, foreword thinking business woman with Rare Beauty, advocate for mental health with Wonderminds, & entertaining chef on Selena + Chef.

In addition, she’s a style icon, so in celebration of her 30th birthday (yesterday), here’s a flashback of her fashion range as bombshell, ingenue, & risk-taker in edgy, classic, elegant, & bold gowns, mini dresses, suits of all kinds, outfits, & more!

Red Carpet Review: Selena Gomez Celebrates the Kind Words Launch of Rare Beauty in Alexander McQueen!


Selena Gomez is at it again! No, she’s not solving murders, like her character, Mable Mora, does on Only Murders in the Building. No, she’s not cooking up a feast for her friends & family, like she does on the hit HBOMax show Selena + Chef. No, she’s not singing her heart out, like she did on her most recent album, Revelacion. This time, she’s promoting her new lipstick & lip liner launch for her cosmetics brand, Rare Beauty, Kind Words in effortless, mature, & elegant style.

The mogul & entertainer stepped out in a Santa Monica Sephora wearing a blazer mini dress with lace detailing by Alexander McQueen (shop similar here) from the Fall/Winter 2022 collection, finished with Jimmy Choo Minny sandals in black (shop here), maintaining a polished, professional, & posh style for yet another blogworthy appearance, as seen below.

In an email interview with Harper’s Bazaar last month, Selena revealed the process behind developing the Kind Words matter lip colors, along with her favorites, stating: “I wanted to create a classic lipstick that’s truly comfortable. Every shade is easy and wearable, and just perfect for every day…This is everything I’ve ever wanted in a lip liner. Super smooth and doesn’t tug on your lips and made to last all day without feeling sticky.”

In the same Harper’s Bazaar piece, Selena adds, “I’ve been testing and wearing these products for the past year with my friends and makeup artists. This year, I’ve worn the lipstick and liners to the SAG Awards, Critics Choice Awards, Only Murders in the Building press days, and on my days off…I can’t stop wearing the new Kind Words Matte Lip Liner in Fun, which I have been pairing with the Kind Words Matte Lipstick in Lively. Fun is a beautiful neutral mauve, and Lively is more of a rose-pink shade, and they complement each other well. If I want a bold lip look, my go-to is Gifted, which is a deep dusty plum. That’s what I’m wearing in the campaign! The lipsticks and liners are so easy to wear, because they’re comfortable and creamy, so the lips stay soft and supple. I love this collection because every shade is wearable and perfect for an everyday look whether I’m mixing and matching or wearing the same shades.”

Check out the below video, from Beauty Velle, for a glimpse into Selena’s Kind Words collection in rich matte hues for any occasion:

For $15-$20, the liners & lipsticks seem like a worthy investment, if you’re the lipstick-loving type!

Are you excited for Selena’s next beauty venture? Which hues are your favorites? Do you wear any of her cosmetics? Which celebrity beauty line do you follow & love the most?

Red Carpet Review: Selena Gomez Sparkles in Michael Kors at the Season 2 Premiere of Only Murders in the Building!


If you haven’t watched season 1 of Only Murders in the Building on Hulu, stop reading & go do it–all 10 episodes!

However, if you’re excited for season 2 to drop TODAY, just like I am, you’ll be extra psyched to see the show’s star, Selena Gomez, in all of her silver sparkly glory at the season 2 premiere in Los Angeles yesterday. With a cut-out & super high slit gown by Michael Kors, plus a beachy/glam ponytail, shimmering hoop earrings by Effy Jewelry (shop similar here), & makeup, no doubt, from her Rare Beauty collection, this is Selena’s best red carpet look EVER, IMO. She’s poised, polished, & perfectly glistening with such a modern take on a classic Hollywood aesthetic. The range that she displays on the red carpet, when performing on stage, & on the show as the sarcastic Mable Mora is admirable & evocative, cementing her status as a major player in the entertainment industry who is only just getting started (with over 100 acting credits to her name & 9 albums to her name)!

Have a look at Selena’s stunning red carpet appearance, which is just the beginning of what will be a fashionable press tour for the show & her upcoming Rare Beauty launches:

To catch up on what happened last season, watch the season 1 trailer (not a recap!) below:

If you haven’t already watched it on repeat, watch the hi-jinx about to ensue on the residents (& outcasts) of the Arconia building:

I can’t wait to laugh, cry, & wonder about how this new season will unfold, especially with celebrity guest stars, such as comedian Amy Schumer and Selena’s good friend / supermodel Cara Delevingne joining in on the fun.
