Look Of The Day: Jennifer Hudson in Hot Pink Mini Skirt

Jennifer Hudson at the AOL Music Sessions on March 26th, 2011

Wowza! What a stunner! Jennifer Hudson has worked really hard at getting her body into shape after giving birth to her son David Jr. a year and half ago. The Weight Watchers spokeswoman has lost a total of 80 pounds since starting the program in April 2010. Now she's been seen flaunting her fab figure all over the place and wearing a series of amazing outfits. This definitely tops my number 1 fav so far. Jennifer paired her bright pink mini with a black corset and sky high jeweled heels. I also really like her accessory choices here and that sassy pink lipstick. She topped off her look with another obsession of mine - a messy side braid. I've always been in favor of Hot Pink. Which is why I'm sooooo glad one of the Spring and Summer trends is BRIGHT color! So far I've grabbed this lipstick for a Hot Pink selection (it's amazing - super creamy and super bright!), blogged about these fantastic Steve Madden heels and I've been on the hunt for an affordable option of this fab Jil Sander long skirt. But now it looks like I might have to add a mini skirt in this color to my collection as well! So far I haven't found any option to copy this look under $150 but as soon as I do I'll be sure to post it. For now I just wanted to share this amazing look with you! Happy Monday! xoxo

In ♥ With This: Malin Akerman In Red Dress At Sucker Punch Red Carpet

Malin Akerman at the L.A. Premiere of Sucker Punch

Time for another edition of In ♥ With This! This time I'm featuring an actress who always surprises me (in mostly good ways) with her fashion choices. Malin Akerman is Swedish-Canadian which is probably why she's so freaking gorgeous - don't those Ice Blue eyes just pierce you! She usually isn't scared to take on a new trend or rock a funky look. Here Malin showed up to Grauman's Chinese Theatre on March 23 in Hollywood wearing a crimson gown that is supposedly from the Holmes & Yang Collection - duo of Katie Holmes and stylist Jeanne Yang (I haven't confirmed that.. but will keep you posted!) This slinky number is the perfect length - one of the hardest elements about wearing a longer dress. I also love the glittery gold belt she has cinched at the waist. Malin knows with her red hot color to keep everything else simple - what a knock out! Happy Friday Loves!

UPDATE: It is confirmed that Malik Akerman's long red dress is from the line Holmes & Yang. It's part of their Fall/Winter collection which will be out in stores later on this summer.

Giuliana Rancic's BlueFly Closet Confession

Yay! Another part in my favorite series: The BlueFly Closet Confessions Video. One of my all time fav celebrities was featured: Giuliana Rancic. I just love her! In college my girlfriends and I used to come home after classes or work and eat dinner together while watching E! News. It was such a bonding time for us and we loved seeing what G was going to say or wear next. Now - I love watching her reality show Giuliana & Bill because they're such a funny couple and super relatable. I think it's the one show that Bill will sometimes watch with me and not compain about... :) The video was shot at her E! dressing room which I can only imagine must be like a playground for us fashion obsessed adults. She is always wearing some gorgeous dress or shoes when filming segments so I was really excited to see her video premiere today.

Of course there's tons of labels and designers featured - but in this video Jose (E!'s stylist) and Giuliana spend more time providing comic relief about outfits. Especially the part about Ryan Seacrest and her having to wear the flats - it cracked me up! Take a look at the video and let me know what you think: It's a bit different than the other few Closet Confessions - but still great! Hey Loveys - It's almost Friday! xoxo

Poll: Love or Hate? Amanda Seyfried In Lanvin at L.A. Red Riding Hood Premiere

Amanda Seyfried in Lanvin Spring/Summer 2011

Amanda Seyfried has come a long way since her days as the incredibly ditzy but loveable "Karen" from the Lindsay Lohan movie Mean Girls. She's been in a slew of films recently and had a role as the eldest daughter in the HBO series Big Love. But it doesn't look like she plans on slowing down anytime soon. Amanda's also completely upped her fashion game over the past few years. One whose definitely willing to take a risk (she got a lot of flack for this Bodyamr dress she wore backwards) to me she always has a fresh face and unique twist on the latest fashion and beauty crazes. Here she showed up Monday night's Red Riding Hood premiere in a reddish-purple Lanvin mini dress from their Spring/Summer 2011 line. (Here's the runway version) The sleeves look a little big on her but other than that it's still a fab dress. Purple and Pleats are going to be all over the place for the next few months. Her Tom Binns Design necklace adds a bit of color and that dark green/gray nail polish is amaze (I have a very similar color on today in fact!) But what kills me about this outfit are those Lanvin shoes...

WOWZA! Love These!

So now begs the question dear reader - Do you love or hate?! Vote and leave your comments below! If enough of you are interested I could do a "Steal Her Look For Less" post. Happy Tuesday everyone!! xoxo

Blake Lively for Chanel Mademoiselle Handbags: First Look

It's here!! The first photo release from Blake Lively's new campaign for Chanel Mademoiselle Handbags. The photos were shot by Karl Lagerfeld (you'll also remember Mr. Lagerfeld shot this Fendi Handbag campaign I swooned over this past summer) and features a classic quilted red patent leather bag. But I secretly am loving that feather dress though! Can't wait to see the rest of the pictures! Hopefully they will be released soon. 
Happy Monday!!

Upcoming Shoe Trend: Coral-Melon-Mango Colored Shoe

Brooklyn Decker and Zoe Saldana in Brian Atwood Suede Pumps

Trend Alert! With spring upon us - it's time to start thinking about some options for when the warmer months come along (It is March 1st everyone!) Take a look at two fierce fashionistas, models and actresses wearing what I'm expecting to be a very popular and wearable shoe trend: the Coral/Melon/Mango colored shoe. This hue is so bright and super vibrant! It breathes instant life into an outfit making it fresh and new. The best part - you can pair it with anything from short skirts, maxis, dresses - even dress up a pair of blue skinny jeans and a tee. Brooklyn and Zoe have chosen the one and only Brian Atwood for their coral choice but I have found the most amazing pair that ANY girl can afford.

If you feel like opting out that month (maybe you need some extra cash for a Girl's Night Out?!) no problem! Simply pick the option to skip a month - no strings attached. Their shoes are designer quality (I'm serious - no cheapie shoes here!), right on trend and totally affordable. Sole Society even has great fashion insiders helping to pick each month's batch of shoes including my personal fav Janie Bryant, costume designer for Mad Men. Right now they have the most brilliant option for you to achieve this look without having to shell out $600 dollars. They're actually my first buy from the site and I can't wait to get my hands on them....
