  • Leighton Meester vs. Victoria Beckham

    Marcel Thomas/FilmMagic and Danny Martindale/Getty ImagesMarcel Thomas/FilmMagic and Danny Martindale/Getty ImagesTwo women, one Victoria Beckham
    Collection dress.

    Leighton was photographed at New York
    City's The Standard hotel filming a scene for
    "Gossip Girl," and she accessorized with a
    gunmetal grey clutch, blue patterned pumps
    and a chunky gold cuff. I love how easy, yet
    sophisticated she looks with the addition of
    those rich, classic pieces.

    Posh stepped out in the same dress for the
    Range Rover 40th Anniversary Party in July,
    and it fits her like a glove. Her to-die-for
    nude platform pumps and simple diamond
    studs are the perfect complements, as are
    her upswept hair and smokey eye makeup.

    Who do you think wore it best?

  • Looks For Less: Inspired by the Emmys

    In my humble opinion, the fashion showcased at this year's Emmys deserved its own award. There was color, texture, flash, and individual style. From the highest of the high fashion runway pieces to the sweetest vintage finds, the women in attendance truly shined. And why shouldn't you get to do the same -- for WAY less? While some things just shouldn't be replicated (Anna Paquin's stunning Alexander McQueen runway dress), others were made to be imitated (birthday girl Lea Michele's cool navy Oscar de la Renta and chunky silver jewelry ensemble). And the ones that are missing? Well, they just shouldn't have been worn in the first place (Rita Wilson's head-to-toe Prada runway look, for example- never, ever wear one designer head-toe!). Below are some of my favorite looks and their inexpensive click-to-buy options.

  • George Clooney's "American" Style

    George Clooney's dressing style sets the standard to which all men should be held. Whether he's dashing and polished in an impeccably-tailored tuxedo, exploring a new city in distressed jeans and a rich leather jacket, or relaxing in shorts and loafers, Clooney always exudes confidence, masculinity and timelessness. In his new film, "The American," he plays Jack, a master assassin on his last mission in Italy, where he relishes being out of harm's way for a change. We all know how that plays out. In honor of the latest movie where George Clooney will prove that he's immune to aging while charming the pants off of everyone around him, let's check out the below gallery of his great American style.

  • What Will They Wear? Emmy Nominees' Haute Habits

    What's more fun than watching all of your favorite television stars compete for awards for your favorite performances of the past year? Predicting what they'll wear on the red carpet, of course! This year's Emmy Awards take place on August 29th and with funnyman Jimmy Fallon hosting, we're in for a wild ride. But, just what will this year's female nominees choose to step out in this year? Let's take a look at their go-to styles to help us make a prediction, shall we?

  • Another Industry Gets a Fashion Makeover

    DVF-designed hospital gowns / Cleveland ClinicDVF-designed hospital gowns / Cleveland ClinicDesigner-service industry collaborations are not new. In the
    early 1960's Emilio Pucci outfitted the flight attendants of Braniff
    Airlines in his colorful wares to make the customers feel like they
    were getting a unique and pleasant flight experience. In 1980,
    Oscar de la Renta reworked the traditional Boy Scouts uniform
    to make his mark off the runway, though I can't imagine the boys
    noticed the difference.

    This week, the Cleveland Clinic unveiled its new full-coverage,
    reversible printed Diane von Furstenberg-designed hospital
    gowns, which feature a repeating pattern of the Clinic's diamond
    logo. And this is not the first time she's collaborated with a
    service industry -- the waitresses at Teddy's at the Roosevelt
    Hotel in L.A. all wore her signature wrap dresses before Nanette
    Lepore was hired this summer for a redesign.Nanette Lepore's sketch for new Thompson Hotel properties uniforms.Nanette Lepore's sketch for new Thompson Hotel properties uniforms.

  • Drew Barrymore's $25 Red Carpet Hit

    Talk about mixing high and low fashion! What did the adorable Drew Barrymore choose to wear to host the Nylon
    magazine/Express party this week in Los Angeles?

    This gorgeous $25 metallic-printed 3/4-sleeve shift dress
    from a thrift store paired with $760 Yves Saint Laurent "Tribute" pumps, of course! I love the 1960's vibe she's got going on; the psychedelic print, the cut, and the pumped-up voluminous feel of her hair is a total win.

    It's so refreshing to see someone mix it up and have fun
    with fashion. Just last month she made an appearance in an Oscar de la Renta runway dress--a far cry, financially, from an Austin, TX thrift-store find.

    Don't you love it when vintage Drew -- the irreverent, quirky, girl power praising, throw-a-daisy-in-her-hair Drew that we all idolized in the 90's--steps out on the red carpet?

  • Who Wore it Best: Sarah Jessica Parker or Gwyneth Paltrow?

    Jackson Lee/SPMaryannakis/Johns/Splash NewsJackson Lee/SPMaryannakis/Johns/Splash NewsTheir credentials are practically
    identical: A-list actress, power mom,
    businesswoman, quintessential New Yorker,
    possessor of ultra-covetable hair. So it makes sense that they'd both own a super on-trend pair of army green fitted pants from
    Current/Elliott.

    SJP paired her fashionable fatigues with a
    graphic white t-shirt, black fedora, dark
    sunglasses, silk printed scarf, peep-toe clogs
    and a tie-dye hobo bag from Halston Heritage
    while running around NYC. Gwyneth went
    another route, dressing up her utilitarian
    pants with pointy-toed stilettos, an ivory cami, and an oatmeal-hued Stella McCartney
    blazer for the designer's fashion presentation
    in NYC's West Village.

    Who do you think styled these pants best?
    Funky and casual SJP? Or sleek and simple
    Gwyneth?

  • At Last, The "Inception" of Ellen Page's Style!

    Ellen Page's dream of starring in a film with Leonardo DiCaprio has been realized! True, that is actually MY dream, but it's still something to celebrate. In "Inception," Ellen plays Ariadne, one of Dom Cobb's (Leo) team members in a plot to use technology to plant an idea in an enemy's subconscious. Let's take a look at some of her red carpet hits and misses, beginning with two that I love. Three cheers for Ellen Page's developing style..!

  • Carrie Underwood: Beautiful Bride

    On July 10, not one, not two, but THREE celebrity couples tied the knot -- Emily Blunt and John Krasinski, Lala Vasquez and Carmelo Anthony, and Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher. We were pretty excited to see what each bride ended up wearing, since their styles are so vastly different. But, we were the most excited about Carrie, who always looks like a cross between an Old Hollywood movie star and a princess. Let's check out her best red carpet looks from 2010 below.
