Love (most of) this. Bring it.

We love emulating the style of Hollywood starlets and Anne Hathaway is no exception. She always appears classic and elegant, yet never boring in her style choices both on the red carpet and on the street. The star has been busy promoting her new film Love and Other Drugs and we cannot get enough of her white lace mini dress!
To recreate this look, we’ve found a few identical accessories; Anne usually keeps her jewelry minimal with a pair of drop earrings, so we chose two pairs by Carolee and Kenneth Jay Lane that are eye-catching and easy to wear. Stack one or several of these crystal Lucite bangles by Lee Angel, and complete your outfit with a neutral colored clutch like this one by Marc Jacobs. We can’t wait to see what she’ll show up in next!
I realize that this is a ton off stuff, but I felt that it worked best as a collection – indulge me. Amongst the must-have items this season are tuxedos and tailcoats for women (love). “Tailcoats can be worn with a long skirt and a lingerie-inspired top,” says Ann-Sofie Johansson, H&M’s Head of Design. “Or over a feminine dress, or even with jeans and a T-shirt, glammed up with bright red high heels.” Ann-Sofie says that details are key; “Hair accessories add a special twist this winter. I love the sequin and feather accessories, and there’s also a lot of beautiful jewelry.” I would have to say that I wholeheartedly concur.
I’m saving the details for a full reveal, but I’m going to tease you with the fantastic brands I’ll be wearing this week to the movie premieres in both New York and Los Angeles:
KRISTINIT is the label of designer and artist Kristina Lenss.
Kristina studied costume design at the renowned Wimbledon School of Art in London and has an M.F.A. in Costume Design from UCLA. Working in various design arenas including theater, opera, film, commercials, ballet, and illustration, Kristina has designed and exhibited her award winning designs all over the world.
Founded in 2006, Kristinit was named Lucky Magazine’s “One to Watch” designer and has been featured in Teen Vogue, OK Magazine, Style.com, Nylon, Agenda Magazine, and Apparel News. Celebrity clients include Eva Mendes, Scarlett Johansson, Zooey Deshanel, Bobbie Thomas, Finola Hughes, and Julia Anderson.
Inspired by nature, history and art, the label fills a niche for inspirational and sophisticated fashion for the elegant and eco-conscious woman. A key tenet of Kristinit’s mission has always been to design with more than just style in mind: The line uses innovative organic fabrics, local manufacturing, and fair trade practices, and Kristinit continues to donate a percentage of each sale to the International Fund for Animal Welfare and the Pachamama Alliance.
Sorrelli jewelry is hand crafted from genuine semi-precious stones and high quality Austrian crystals. It is designed to become heirlooms, handed down through the generations.
The Sorrelli vision, to create beautiful jewelry and bring enjoyment to those who wear it, continues today.
Through LA Stylist Mom – who styled both me and The Gorilla for premiere week – Kristinit and Sorrelli have lent the items I’ll be wearing to the MoMA and the Los Angeles premiere. I can’t wait to show you how it all came together.
I’ll be posting all week as much as I can during this exciting week. If you haven’t already, make plans next weekend to see the movie!

T is my fashion friend against whom I measure all others; when in doubt I ask myself, “Would T wear this…?” Born and raised in Manhattan, she has an inherent sense of timeless chic that can only come from spending your entire life in just such a city. Mind you there was her four year foray at art school with yours truly, where we became besties at dirty warehouse parties clad in Betsy Johnson and swilling Paul Masson straight from the carry-out carafe. Some things never change. Psych.
Holy crizzap, I think I need all of these.
NYC Fashion Week is just around the corner…and I’m in it. In a white dress. You heard me. It’s no secret that my M.O. has always been as a behind-the-camera girl, but when asked to participate in the Electrolux event hosted by Kelly Ripa to benefit The Ovarian Cancer Research Fund, I just couldn’t refuse. To kick off fashion week and demonstrate how the Electrolux Perfect Steam washer and dryer can transform your outfit from Rumpled to Runway, ten fashion bloggers (including me, obvy) have been challenged to wear white one last time before fall; we’ve also been asked to accessorize our outfits with teal, the official color of ovarian cancer awareness…and you can help!
Beginning September 8th, you can visit the Wash ‘n Care lounge at Kelly Confidential to support the cause and enter for a chance to win a daily shopping spree as well as the grand prize, a Perfect Steam washer and dryer from Electrolux! They’ll donate $1 to the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund each time you enter by simply pressing the Perfect Steam button at Kelly Confidential. Electrolux is also making a donation for each Perfect Steam washer and dryer purchased, as part of its $750,000 commitment to OCRF.
The fashion show will take place on September 8th at 1:00 PM, EST, and you can RSVP to watch the live stream on line at Kelly Confidential, or at Kelly’s Facebook page. I’ve included some of the looks I’m thinking of wearing on the runway, but you’ll have to tune in to see my final picks – see you there!
(My participation in the ‘Rumpled to Runway’ Campaign was sponsored by Electrolux, who provided me with a $150 stipend to style my look as well as travel arrangements to and accommodations in New York to participate.)
