Cover Craze: Miley Cyrus Bares It For Cosmopolitan, Victoria Beckham’s Leggy ELLE Cover, & More!


January isn’t even over yet, but there’s major buzz surrounding the upcoming March 2013 covers of the most popular fashion magazines, which is why I’ve updated Cover Craze. I guess this is natural, considering all the talk about spring fashion, upcoming films this year, & throngs of celebrities about to hit the red carpet for the Oscars. I’m sure there’s more to come since I haven’t seen what’s in store yet for Harper’s Bazaar, Shape, Self, Redbook, Marie Claire, Allure, or Elle in March.

The always stunning Dakota Fanning covers Glamour in a cute Mickey Mouse sweater, discussing the controversy behind her 2011 ad campaign for Marc Jacobs‘ fragrance Oh, Lola! Next, it seems that Lucky gets Lauren Conrad on their cover at least once a year & March is all about the designer behind Paper Crown & LC Lauren Conrad for Kohl’s, who always gets the cat-eye right & talks about how she maintains her sleek straight locks. New mom Megan Fox takes on Marie Claire UK in a printed one-piece, opening up about her marriage, motherhood, & about her next career move.

Dakota Fanning for Glamour, Lauren Conrad for Lucky, Megan Fox for Marie Claire UK, Miley Cyrus for Cosmopolitan, Michelle Williams, Rachel Weisz, & Mila Kunis for InStyle, & Victoria Beckham for ELLE UK.

Miley Cyrus has once again proved that she’s not a little girl anymore on the cover of Cosmopolitan, revealing more than just her cleavage. She talks about her latest album, being friends with Katy Perry, & prioritizing her relationship with her fiancé. The stunning co-stars of Oz: The Great & Powerful, Michelle Williams, Rachel Weisz, & Mila Kunis, share the cover of InStyle in romantic pastel looks, as we anticipate at least three upcoming red carpet premieres for the fantasy Disney film. Lastly, Victoria Beckham takes over ELLE UK, wearing only best, including Lanvin, Burberry, Miu Miu, & of course her own brand. The hard-working designer candidly explains her work ethic, trust issues, & what’s next for the Beckham brood in 2013.

It was only a few days ago that I shared a gallery of Lauren Conrad‘s Spring 2013 Collection for Kohl’s, featuring classic separates, feminine pops of color, & spring-ready dresses for a date; however the former reality star has also created a fabulous Spring 2013 line for her luxury brand, Paper Crown. The combination of belted & minimalist maxi dresses, luxe button-downs with chiffon accents, leather leggings paired with oversized matte sequins, & timeless pieces for day, date, & the office offers a variety to mix & match with any wardrobe. Of course, Lauren’s ladylike prepster style will resonate with the J. Crew / Banana Republic / Lulu’s shopper & I’m crazy about the details like cream lace, soft bows, a relaxed fit.

Would you wear any of the pieces in this collection? Do you like Lauren’s style & taste for this line? Do you follow celebrity-turned-designer brands?

I’ve been featuring a whole lot of high-end luxury fashion lately in Runway Rundown, but I haven’t forgotten about my style-on-a-budget roots, which is why I wanted to feature the lookbook from LC Lauren Conrad‘s Kohl’s Collection. I love Lauren’s red carpet style, which I’ve featured in previous posts including her sweater dress look, leather dress by Johanna Johnson, lovely yellow Yoana Baraschi frock, summer-ready maxi dress, & a classic round toe pump look.

What I love about Lauren’s collection is not only its affordability, but that her pieces are so accessible for the average shopper. The collection, which debuts in stores next month, includes classic shapes & patterns like polka dots in navy & white or black & white, floral jeans, bow & lace details, timeless blouses, & figure-flattering separates. In addition, the line includes adorable mary jane shoes, platform pumps, & scalloped flats, all of which can be mixed up for day, the office, night, & weekend looks. There’s nothing stuffy, pretentious, unwearable, or unrealistic about this collection & I can’t wait to use my next round of Kohl’s coupons on these pieces!

Former reality star-turned-fashion designer Lauren Conrad has been working very hard to set her image apart from her previous days at the face of MTV’s The Hills, or whatever show she was one.  The talented personality continues her relationship with Kohl’s creating a feminine, wearable, & polished Fall 2012 collection.  While the prices for some of the pieces in her line may seem high, keep in mind that Kohl’s offers so many sales & discounts that you’ll be saving much more than you’re spending! I’ve collected these images, courtesy of InStyle, & created a short gallery of what you can look forward to seeing the next time you’re in a Kohl’s store.  These items are hitting stores this month, so save up your Kohl’s cash & get your fall wardrobe ready for a professional makeover, date-ready duds, & cute casual essentials.

Runway Rundown: Lauren Conrad Gears Up For The Holidays with Paper Crown!


In a recent interview with In Style, Lauren Conrad describes her recent holiday collection for Paper Crown as “all about feeling feminine & festive.” During a recent appearance on Chelsea Lately, the designer modeled a long-sleeved lace mini dress which had my mind reeling b/c of its ladylike details & minimal elegance.

Take a look at the items, which range in price between $85.00 – $395.00 in stores like Nordstrom, Revolve Clothing, & Walk In Closet Boutique. Of cousre this is a way out of budget for me this season, but the effortlessness of these holiday looks that can be taken well into next year!  Happy Styling!
