Motherhood does a starlet good. Nicole Richie has been having a great style week.
She's able to go flawlessly from hippie mom to chic starlet about town. I love how she can mix low end (like converse) with vintage Dior. It might not be high fashion but she has her own style that has evolved from Rachel Zoe's barbie to a young LA mom and I really love it. What do you guys think about Ms. Richie?
This is over priced and silly. Don't bother. Stick with AA and Hue!
LINDSAY LOHAN's leggings are getting closer to store shelves!
ET has learned that the starlet's new line, named "6126" after MARILYN MONROE's birth date, has been picked up at L.A.'s posh Fred Segal boutique and online retailer www.revolveclothing.com and will start shipping around August 30th, "6126" LLC partner KRISTI KAYLOR says.
Last month, Lindsay caused a frenzy in Beverly Hills when she and two models posed for publicity shots wearing the pieces. (See the finished pic above!)
So far, the "6126" collection includes "footless tights" made from "Supima cotton and Modal ribbed knits" along with other fabrics spruced up with zippers, foil prints, yarn dyes and sexy metallic and screen prints.
Cashmere leg warmers and something called an "ankle glove," a modified warmer that covers the ankle, are also part of the line, which will start at $40 and go up to $140.

I came across this Harper's Bazaar Russia (July 2007) editorial from last year recently and it reminded me how much I loved it! It's so beautiful and the colors are amazing, it's all just so lush. I love the photo of Serafima, with her back to us, on a statue is so romanticist of Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly that I could swoon. I just want to be living the story this editorial tells. I also really adore the recreation of the Blessed Mother photograph; In fact it is currently my Mac's background.

Sometimes I wish we could all just wear pretty face paint, glitter, ribbons, feathers and flowers and live in Wonderland. Mischa Barton gets to do this because she's a minor celebrity and was invited to a children's benefit: A Time For Heroes Carnival.
I also just really loved her outfit in general except the studded Christian Louboutins. I mean, I LOVE them but I don't think they work with the fairy doll look.
I'm sure that by now you've all seen this editorial or at least the cover but I love it and I love her (which you totally didn't know, right?! Just kidding!) so I thought I'd share it with you. Notice the velvet forehead head band! That's the monstrosity she wore to the New Yorkers for Children's Dinner Dance with vintage Missoni that made me cringe! Her photo shoot happened on the day of the event and she dressed at the photo studio. She should have worn the styled for the shoot outfit she wanted that headband! But that insanity is part of why we love MK....I think.
I don't care what anyone says: She is achingly beautiful.

Do you like your hair? Animals? Hats? Being different? Do like these things all at once? Than Nagi Noda's latest creations will blow you away. They are hats made out of different kinds of hair to recreate an animal. Don't understand? Well, just check out these pictures and I think you will. My favorite is the lion!

A lot of the mainstream media HATED this dress but I adore it. The proportions of the dress on her teeny body is just mind boggling and the belt is beautiful. And just like Marc and Victoria themselves it's a dress with a sense of humor. Very tongue in cheek. So get in on the joke.

No, I'm not a tacky celebrity blog. Well. Not really. But I just love this video from last night in LA. Poor MK must have had a little bit too much to drink (well, hey! It was Thirsty Thursday!) because the poor little dear stumbles on her way to the car, gets in and then immediately falls back out onto the ground. But from what I can see of her outfit she didn't stumble with that at all!

I went to the mall yesterday just to get out of the house and get a quick massage. But Forever 21 called to me and I figured browsing wouldn't hurt. But it did...
I have a confession to make: As much as I love getting that green Tiffany box or any nice jewelry on a special occasion I swoon. But....
I have a cheap jewelry addiction. Forever 21 is cheap jewelry heaven.
I bought these stackable rings ($4.80), a white and gold leaf cuff ($6.80) as well as an amazing set of stud earrings inspired by everyones favorite fruit: apples, lemons, and strawberries ($4.80).
I also grabbed a pair of cheap semi-gladiator-esque black sandals for $7.50
You can see the faux croc print on them. Its funny I bought them a size smaller than I normally wear (because Forever 21 never has anything in a size large. You're lucky if you find a medium!) and they still feel too loose but they are pretty comfy.
I know it's kind of a controversy shopping at Forever 21. You know that their ripping off designers, poorly treating their workers, and donating huge portions of their profits to Evangelical groups and causes (specifically pro-life) which is a good argument for some people to stay away. I'm firmly pro-choice and while I was browsing the jewelry all I could think about was that I might be funding things that I'm against, as well as encouraging them to continue treating factory workers as subhuman. And yet I see the prices and I cave. I'm currently giving myself a lot of grief over this especially since discovering that at the bottom of ALL of the Forever 21 shopping bags in an almost unnoticeable font- John:316. I'm a Catholic, I have some very strong Christian beliefs, but printing Bible verses on your bag in such a subtle way that people may not even realize their displaying it to others? It makes me uncomfortable.

Sorry for my lack of posts yesterday. I wasn't feeling that great and then I had some family obligations to deal with. Anyway, as promised, my best dressed at Monday night's CFDA Awards.
Ashley Olsen wore Calvin Klein collection in an apparent homage to the late, great YSL. I thought the leather was a design on the bottom of her tapered pants but they're actually the ankle strap for the shoes. She told her website that her current favorite movie is Annie Hall so I suppose that explains the blazer action as of late.
Meredith Melling Burke chose to go the pretty princess route in Oscar de la Renta.
Katie Lee Joel looked youthful yet elegant in (and with) Yigal Azroul.
Doo-Ri Chung opted for feminine simplicity wearing one of her own designs. Don't those platforms look killer? I had to include her just for being able to wear them all night!
And finally the very best dressed of the night...
Kasia Struss in Rodarte. I love how raw and sinister this dress is and yet it's still a fantasy fairy like dress. Its just like how I imagine Tinkerbell would look after snapping and very happily disposing of Wendy Darling. But it's still so beautiful and frothy. I am absolutely in love. Very few women can actually wear Rodarte well and Kasia Struss is lucky enough to be one of them. Jealousy ensues.
