Literary L.C.

lauren-conrad-b_9

LC has added yet another title to her ever-growing resume…author.   The Hills starlet has penned the first in a series of books based on her not-s0-real life in LA.  The book will follow the story of a 19-year old girl as she moves to La La land, lands and internship and finds her own way…sound familiar??  I’m sure this was a huge mental stretch for Ms. Conrad but on a positive note, the cover is super-cute!!

The book hits shelves on June 16th.  So what do you think of LC’s latest project…will you be reading LA Candy?

From Zoe to Zero

rachel

According to the New York Post, Rachel Zoe is seriously pissing off her celebrity clients like Debra Messing and Cameron Diaz. So much so, that Debra supposedly gave the tiny fashionista a pink slip!  Her clients are annoyed that Zoe is working on her reality show too much and losing focus when it comes to her first job (and the reason she even has a TV show), styling.

Rachel can do no wrong in my book and as far as I’m concerned these stars are just jealous that they now have to share the spotlight with Rachel and that the rest of us get to pick up on her styling tips free of charge!  And Debra Messing, really??  She’s got bigger, brighter stars to worry about like Oscar nominated, Anne Hathaway!

Some seem think that Rachel needs her celeb clients to survive in this business and make a good TV show, but let’s not forget that this woman’s life would be worth watching if just for the clothes and accessories…and Brad of course!

Bring back my ZOE TV already!!

Technicolor Nightmare

picture-311One of the biggest trends on the red carpet was color…unfortunately, these gowns were not the way to do color.   The first dress isn’t even that bad, and I actually like the rich green shade…unfortunately, the overall styling totally missed the mark.

Christina Applegate is usually on my best dressed list, but this green sack thing did her amazing body no favors.  If she wanted to be comfortable, she should have at least upped the glam factor with standout jewelry.  That long diamond necklace totally looks out of place and it only emphasizes the general messiness of the dress.  The earrings look like a solar system hoovering around her face and she really needed pick something more classic and elegant to elevate the casualness of the gown.

And what happened to Eva Longoria??  She truly wowed in that stunning red gown at the Golden Globes, but she must have asked Robert Verdi to dress her again because she’s back to the overdone, over styled prom-queen business again.

My general feeling about tonight’s red carpet looks was …boooooring.  These women left me wanting and expecting more, so let’s hope and pray that the Oscar’s really deliver!

The Short List

picture-129That was easy…when there’s that many fashion DONTS on a red carpet, it makes my job very simple.

Here are the women who actually remembered that they were attending the SAG awards tonight and who decided to actually dress like the movie stars that they are.

Anne chose white, the hottest color for this Awards season, and looked like a goddess in that Grecian inspired Azzaro gown but she should have used a hair stylist in addition to her wardrobe stylist…I do not care for that hair.

Kate Winslet just gets more and more beautiful every time I see her and she’s radiant in this cobalt blue number.  And more power to her for showing us again and again that real women do have curves!

Rounding out my top 4 are America Ferrara in a beautifully draped nude Vera Wang number, which combined two usually blah neutrals and made them totally WOW, and my favorite princess, Amy Adams in a rich Violet Giambattista Valli gown.  I didn’t love Amy’s dress when I first saw it because of the bows, but once I saw the gown up close and realized that they weren’t actually bows, I quickly changed my mind.  The color is striking against her skin tone and the loose column silhouette is a nice contrast to the corseted top.  She looks sexy, yet elegant at the same time.

What do you think?  What were your favorite looks of the night??

Speaking of…

If  I were lucky enough to be at Sundance this weekend, this is one of the films I would be dying to see!

RJ Cutler’s documentary, The September Issue, is a real life “Devil Wears Prada” and was compiled from 300+ hours of footage he shot during his 8 months at Vogue.  The film is said to have Anna Wintour’s seal of approval (some even say she’ll attend the Sundance premiere) but I have a feeling that since Cutler had final cut, Ms. Wintour might be in for a surprise…or at least I hope so!

I couldn’t post the video but you can click here to watch a preview of the film on Fashionologie.

A Breath of Fresh Air

picture-24

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh…

Leave it to Cameron to inject some much needed color and add an element of risk to the red carpet. Does anyone know if she still works with Rachel Zoe? Or did she put this together herself? Either way, she looks fantabulous in this Chanel dress and she’s sporting one of my picks for the hottest trends of Spring 2009: Asymetrical.

I totally love this shade of Barbie pink on her and the girl knows how to pick a silhouette that perfectly complements her body. Her tanned and toned shoulders/arms are the focus and rightfully so…how do I get my arms to look like that???  And while this look isn’t for everyone, I love that it’s different, modern and de-constructed.   There’s something really fresh about it that was missing from many of tonight’s looks.

Her hair and make-up team also deserve a huge thank you tonight…her bold red lips perfectly complement her dress without overpowering it. I think it was a great color choice and it makes the whole look seem more grown up.

I also love her hair this color and the longer length is a much needed update. She usually has it much shorter and choppier, so I’m happy to see it styled down and in soft waves. I’m guessing the new long locks are thanks to some very expensive extensions, but if I were her, I would totally keep them!

She looks beautiful!

Black and Blue

picture-3

Most ladies in Hollywood hardly suffer from a bruised ego, but given the color choices tonight you would have thought otherwise.  If they weren’t wearing white, Hollywood’s biggest actresses chose classic Black and various shades of Blue for tonight’s ceremony.  I personally didn’t care for the brighter cobalt shades but I did like the rich Navy and dark Aubergines (that bordered on Navy) that stars like Hayden Panatierre chose.

I’m not usually a fan of Evan Rachel Wood, but her black dress is stunning and I love that she chose something with a very sleek and slim line.  Anne Hathaway is one of my favorite leading ladies and I love the color of her dress, but in that silhouette, I prefer Amy Adams in her breath-taking Oscar de La Renta.
