The Modern Hoop

For a while, chandelier earrings were all the rage. And then we were seeing long, straight drops. But the hoop seems to be back and bigger than ever — literally. Take a cue from Jennifer Hudson, above, and go big even during day. Jennifer chose a diamond-studded version for her appearance on Live with Regis and Kelly and I think they add the perfect amount of sparkle to an ensemble with girly touches like pintucks and ruffles. Oversized might be…

Leopard Love

I find it pretty amazing how long leopard has been sticking around. This jungle cat pattern is definitely bold and brash, but lots of ladies are embracing it by wearing it strategically: Just one piece is more than enough. Kate Walsh did it just right as an accent to denim and black, and both Rihanna‘s headband and Rachel Zoe‘s booties were worn in the same vein. All three ladies kept the rest of their ensembles simple and low-key, and chose leopard…

It's a Man's World?

Although I already talked about my favorite Oscar fashions, I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention Anne Hathaway in a custom Lanvin tuxedo and Brian Atwood heels. I adored this outfit — it fit her like a dream, had perfect proportions, and still left her looking totally feminine and beautiful. The idea of women wearing menswear is nothing new (see Marlena Dietrich, Lauren Hutton and YSL’s Le Smoking jacket), and in fact, it’s a trend that’s been growing stronger in…

Perfectly Prada

Here’s an unusually casual Rihanna in Italy this week. Although her red hair is pretty hard to ignore, I think it’s her cute ostrich Prada bag that’s the standout. Ostrich is a super durable material that has an inherently chic pattern worked in naturally, and some of my favorite bags right now–in all colors and sizes–are made from it. Whether you’re looking for a similar Prada bag (try this Runway Bauletto Cervo Patch Naturale Satchel on for size) or something in…

Say it with Stripes

For some, the Fourth of July means red, white and blue. But I’m more distracted by the stars and stripes part of the equation–like Rihanna in this great black and white striped blouse. Stripes have been everywhere for summer, especially in simple t-shirts and on great printed dresses. Want to integrate this look into your accessories? I am coveting this mini Chanel flap in fabulous black and white. It would be so cute for a night out–it only fits your…

Get the Look: Rihanna

Normally, it’s hard to try to copy a style as out-there as Rihanna‘s. From the funky hairstyles to the crazy dress cutouts, she doesn’t usually do downplayed. But then she goes and tones it down while sitting courtside at the Knicks game on Monday night in NYC. There is nothing I like better than a simple white t-shirt for showing off a great selection of jewelry. Rihanna mixes and matches several yellow gold necklaces (including what looks like two rosaries…
