Olsen twins get their money's worth.

The holidays season has led the Olsen girls into wearing similar outfits as they do their Christmas shopping. Both Ashley and Mary-Kate, wore the whole skinny jeans, flats, sunglasses, scarf and plaid top look topped off with an oversized bag.

But as usual Mary-Kate quirked her look up a bit with stacks of jewellery, a load t-shirt and kooky sunglasses. While Ashley kept it chic in a blazer, cool aviator sunglasses, and pulled back hair.

Jessica Stam Bling & Boots

International fashion model Jessica Stam hosted a recent charity event, Water, in a sexy sparkly dress, very trendy boots and a radiant smile. Nothing to say except that she looked gorgeous.

BFF style: Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Tisdale

High School Musical stars, Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Tisdale enjoyed each others company on a final Christmas eve shopping spree. The best friends wore very similar outfits consisting of loose dresses, leggings, long cardigans, flats and tossled hair. They prove that style is definetely influenced by your peers.

Leopard on Leopard

Mischa Barton recently went clubbing with her mum (what the ....?) in a conservative ensemble pimped up with not just one shot of leopard but two servings.

Her top and scarf combo is a purposely orchastrated clash of prints. The leopard on leopard look normally doesn't work well as Paris Hilton demostrated a while back. But is Mischa's animal print combo discreet enough to get away with?

Paris Hilton Channels Dorothy

As the once outrageous Paris Hilton starts to mellow, her fashion sense is still very much individual.

Preferring girly feminine looks that are sometimes a little too coordinated, Paris Hilton went out clubbing with grease monkey Brandon Davis, wearing puffy sleeves, a tartan dress and red Wizard Of Oz, Dorothy style shoes.

She looks surprisingly covered up and i do tend to get distracted by shiny things that's why I'm loving her mobile and pumps.

Kate Hudson- January Vogue

The January issues of Vogue featuring photo's of Kate Hudson and her daughter Ryder are absolutely adorable. I'm loving the whole man style vibe with oxfords, tailored jackets, fedora's and suspenders.

Whilst the clashing of plaid, checks and hounds tooth work so well in muted tones...perhaps a look to try out for the winter.

Nicole Kidman Stiff as Steel

Nicole Kidman turned up to one of her Golden Compass Premiers in a attention grabbing Balenciaga suit.

These Balenicaga suits were designed to be futuristic with a constrictive appeal that was inspired by the likes of automobiles.

They worked well on the catwalk and perhaps on another celebrity, but the suit lost it's appeal in my eyes once it had been placed on Nicole Kidman. It doesn't fit her persona or attitude or her lady like style sense...but i guess when your a big name celebrity with no time on your hands, you wear anything that's handed to you by your $5000-a-day stylist.

Paris Hilton Lip Injections

These aren't the most flattering photos of Paris Hilton, but celebrity sources claim that Paris has in fact had lip injections to plump up her lips. In these photos it looks very much like it, but i seriously hope not.

Even if you love her or hate her, she is naturally a very attractive girl and i hope she ain't getting bits and pieces put into her body to "perfect" it, especially at such a young age.

You be the judge, has Paris Hilton had lip injections or not?

The Cruise Family in London

I love this photo of Tom, Katie and Suri Cruise. As soon as i saw it, it reminded me of one of those photos that will become an instant album staple for many years to come. It's just so old school...

Lindsay Lohan DVB sunglasses

Apparently Lindsay Lohan is getting a lot of free grub from alot of high end stores these days, such as the DVB sunglasses she was seen sporting from Victoria Beckham Dvb Style sunglass line.

A couple of months ago, seeing Lindsay Lohan wearing these sunglasses would have seen them fly off the shelves at Saks, but now she seems to have lost a little bit of her 'Lindsay appeal' because of all the drug and driving scandals she's been in.

I like Lindsay so i really hope she gets back to her acting career as opposed to shopping and being in debt.

Gucci dresses: Cameron Diaz and Jennifer Garner

Gucci Dresses are really making a hit with the celebrities this season, and why wouldn't they? This season's Gucci dresses are made in bright contrast of yellow, black and white with prints of dandelion.

Their chic and sophisticated yet remain interesting.


I find this Rumer Willis extremely annoying and the fact that she gets so much attention for doing absolutely nothing besides popping out of Demi Moore's vagina successfully (or was she a Cesarean?), annoys me even more.

What is that she exactly does? oh well with all this exposure, hopefully one day she might actually be famous..
i know it's a bit harsh, but why is it that people like her get so much attention, but so many talented actors and singers who do more for the industry and society have to wait in the shadow for their turn in the spotlight?

Getting Chilly are we?

It seems that the cold weather is starting to hit on the other side of the world with celebs bundling up in big jackets, scarfs and UGGS. Everyone from Katherine Heigl to Nicole Richie are wearing their comfortable quintessential winter ugg boots.

Nicole Richie has been sporting the new Crochet Ugg boots in black, which are pretty much as comfortable as socks with a sole. These boots were on Oprah's Favourite things list, so they must be good right?

I normally would be sweating writing about winter clothing considering its summer in Australia, but it certainly doesn't feel like it. For the past few weeks all we've been getting is thunderstorms, lightning, rain, hail and NO shine...so I'm still stretching out my winter wardrobe for as long as possible.

Miss Robotic

umm Victoria Beckham is robotic enough, so i think she should have stayed away from this costume...then again isn't dressing up about accentuating your personality and features...well i guess she's it that nail right on the head...still love her though...

The Sex and the City preview pics

It seems like we've already been exposed to so many of the Sex and the City outfits before the movie has even been released.

Anyways judging by the trailers we're in for a lot of clashing colors, prints and outrageous combinations that some how seem to work thanks to the delightful hands of Patricia Field and the cast who seem to pull it off with an enormous amount of confidence.

For those of us living all the way down here in Australia, we will probably have to wait 100 years after the rest of the world to see it...well at least it seems that long..

For more Sex and the City outfit pics click here or here or here!

Hilary Swank is swank!

wow! Hilary Swank looked gorgeous at the premier of P.S I Love You, in a slimline black ruffled dress with train backing.

This is the way you show up to a premier! A dress that flatters your shape, classic hair, gorgeous jewels and a big radiant smile. Hilary just got a million points in my book!

Dior Grandsalon Sunglasses

The blingtastic pair of Dior sunglasses that were seen on Gwen Stefani a few weeks back, have popped up again on the eyes of another celebrity.

The $700 pair of Dior Grandsalon sunglasses were also seen this week on Hulk Hogan's 19 year old daughter, Brooke Hogan. Although i don't know much about her besides the fact that she's dating Aaron Carter and has breast implants, i really do think these shades suit her.

What do you think of these Dior Grandsalon sunglasses yay or nay? If it's a 'yay' you can purchase them online at Otticanet.

Renee Zellweger's buzzing style

If i were one of the main characters (or voices) in a movie and had to rock up to several premiers to promote the movie, i would definitely rock up in something that's going to get me attention and remembered.

But it seems that Renee Zellweger played it on the safe side at the Bee Movie premiers in muted knee-length dresses. Although she ventured into a more formal dress at the most recent premier she wore a beautiful Carolina Herrera dress, the colour was still a little bland.

She should go for an outfit that screams "bitch look at me i'm ten times more fabulous than you'll ever be". I would like to see her rock out in fabulously flamboyant dress like a knockout hot pink, red and black toned dress by Zac Posen Resort or even a Roberto Cavalli number. Would that be too much to ask?

Alicia Keys: Hitting the right notes in a jumpsuit?

Jumpsuits were on all the major catwalks this season from Versace to Chanel, and before you know it, the celebs are catching on too and talented songstress Alicia Keys is one the first to pioneer the look.

Miss Keys posed and performed in an off white 70's inspired jumpsuit. In my eyes she looks fabulous because the jumpsuit is a very hard look to pull off, that i don't think I'll be rocking anytime soon, (especially not in white), without coming across as Mr Poppin Fresh's long lost sister.

The Richie Madden Foundation

It seems that Nicole Richie has certainly matured since her pregnancy, taking more responsibility for her actions and her health whilst also contributing to the world.

Nicole and Joel headed out at the launch of their new family run charity the Richie-Madden foundation in order to better aid the health of pregnant women. Nicole looks absolutely gorgeous and classy teaming the dress with natural make up and a Chanel Cuff...it's a far cry for the profanity machine on the Simple Life.

GQ Men of the year

Young Hollywood set out in style at the GQ Men of the Year festivities from Elisha Cuthbert to super powered cheerleader Hayden Panettiere.

They all looked surprisingly polished keeping colours and print to a bare minimum and using red lips to bring massive impact.
Although Megan Fox looked extremely "foxy", what the hell is up with all her retarded poses? even at the Juno premier earlier this week she was punking out poses 'Avril Lavigne' style.

She always seems to have the need to show off all her tattoos. We get it Megan, your a hard ass...no need to rub it in. either way, they both looked good and I'm in love with those studded Christian Louboutin Mary Janes.

Mischa Barton: I Love Keds

Mischa Barton sure must love the money Keds Shoes are paying her, because why else would she wreck her perfectly cute outfit with a pair of those shoes?

Ok the shoes aren't that bad, they're open toe wedge shoes which would probably look great on as not so lady-like outfit, but could she not find a pair in the whole collection to match? With those shoes she points out a major flaw with the collection-that they don't cater for all occasions or styles.

Nevertheless, Mischa's overall look is completely different to her usual boho accessorised outfits. It's grown up but her face always seems a little gaunt with the dark hair and sucking-in-cheek thing.

Scandal of the week

Ok maybe last week..but i'm behind, so don't hate on me. The celebrity headlines were filled with questions of whether Victoria got breast augmentation to make her boobies more proportionate and not so in your face.

This week photos emerged of her performing at a Spice Girls concert with boobs that are still very much there and very "in your face".

Come on did any of you really think Victoria would get rid of those attention grabbing puppies? So i guess her publicist was right, that she may have not been wearing "her usual push up bra" or that she was just wearing a looser dress?

Hollywood is going Bob crazy

From Rihanna's edgy do to Paris Hilton sophisticated cut, the Bob is one of the hottest hairstyles in Hollywood.

However, everyone this side of the world, seems to be rocking the 'Pob' the look that was relaunched thanks to Victoria Beckham.
When comparing all the bob clad girls, i think Paris Hilton and Katie Holmes (in the above pixture) look beautiful with the hair do, but if i tried it i would probarbly look like i have a bloated fat face or i would feel naked and lost without my long hair...do i have hidden insecurity issues? probarbly.

Fergie at Movies Rock

Fergie performed at the Movies Rock event this week in a pair of pants that are making me cringe.

I'm all for leather and latex pants for performing, but i am still standing by my opinion that a lot of celebrities can't pull off high waisted pants. They either look mummsie or just retarded.

It's weird though because when i see normal girls on the street in high waisted pants they rock them so well, but Fergie's style has always been a little crazy so she gets away with it.

Katie Holmes at the Bambi awards

Katie Holmes look is changing by the minute that it's hard to keep up. But at the Bambi awards Katie showed off an edgy new do with bangs and all. I like the fact that she has a "look" but i'm not sure if i'm liking the look, it adds at least 15 years to her age.

I don't know whether she's bored of her look or she feels a need to look relatively close in age to Tom Cruise but i really do miss old Dawson's Creek Katie Holmes-the sweet looking girl with the adorably slighty crooked grin. Besides i would think that Tom Cruise would love to a young sexy looking woman on his arm that one that looks more and more like Cruella De Vill by the day.

Silk and satin dresses

The Movies Rock event this week so many celebrities rocking out in classic satin and silk-like dresses and to tell you the truth i find it quit boring.

Everyone seemed to be playing it on the safe side at the event with simple dresses in light reflecting material, Fergie probably had the most interesting dress out of the shiny lot with rivets, ties and a bit of skin showing her and there.

As for Beyonce all i can say is "Dear God". The green 'body-strangler' she wore made her look a lot larger than she is and showed of her curves in the most unflattering of way. See this is what happens when every celebrity thinks their fashion designers.

Besides all the dresses she wears these days, look exactly the same except in different colours.

Natalie Portman New York Times style mag

i know i'm a bit late with my blog posts but i have an excuse...i was being a nerd and studying for my final law exams at uni. ok thats a lie. I was studying for 10% of the time and procrastinating the other 90% ( i then i wonder why i never know anything in the exam). Then for the next week i was at work all day, everyday for a few lousy dollars.

But anyways i'm back because i feel so lost without writing on my blog and reading other peoples. So if i'm blogging about old stuff you just have to grin and bare it lol.

Anyways last week i was captivated by the photographs of Natalie Portman in the NYT Style magazine. Ahhh i always knew she was beautiful but these photos just prove how versatile she is-one minute she's sweet the next minute seductive.

And besides posting about Natalie Portman is befitting for this time of year as her features remind me of an elf..and a very pretty one at that :)

Spring 2008 Trend: Jumpsuits

Many of the spring runways had models showing off the 70's fashion staple- the jumpsuit. Jumpsuits have the ability to look cheap, but i really like the way in which Versace (picture 1&3) has brought back the look-feminine and stylish without a hint of prudishness. I would definitely wear ones that resemble Versace. Whilst Chanel brought about younger versions inspired by the 90's.

Kate Moss was one step ahead when she rocked upto the Kate Moss for Top Shop Christmas launch party in a black satin jumsuit, although the look has been seen in many chainstore over the last few winters.
And is it just me or does the model Vlada in the second picture at the top have extremely thin legs?

Designer sunglasses ridiculously priced?

Over the last few years sunglasses have upgraded themselves to a must-have item thanks to designers adding sunglasses to their designer collections and strategic product placement on the likes of our favourite celebrities.

Back in the day (ok my mums day), it was ok to buy a pair of sunglasses from your local store, pharmacy or dare i say it? Gas Station. Fast forward a couple of years and its now necessary to have designer but extremely expensive designer.

Therefore, you've got fashion houses and celebrities designing their own versions, along with numerous counterfeit versions on the Internet.

In order to compete designers are adding bits and pieces onto sunglasses such as Austrian crystals, rhinestones, flash coating etc etc in order to justify the soaring sunglass prices.

But do you really think it's worth forking out $700 plastic with a few crystals here and there or have sunglasses truly reached the status of a designer bag or shoes?

Flashy shades blog also pointed Roberto Cavalli's Eva which retail for $640 while a pair of Judith Leiber sunglasses will set you back about $700.

Star Spangled Girl

We all know that Stars have been hitting the runway in the last few seasons but Kate Moss takes it to a whole new level.

These new ads in the making show Kate Moss and her funky new hair do wrapped and strapped in a stars from her starry white dress to star logoed shoes.

This is definitely one star studded outfit...ohh and what do you think of Kate Moss' new fringe?

Seventh on Sale Dinner Gala Fashion

The fashionable from all walks of life and all fashion tastes, rocked up to the Seventh on Sale Dinner Gala this week in some pretty interesting outfits...Jennifer Connolley(left) is known for her outrageously daring fashion sense, that this dress seems really tame to me, neverthless it got some pretty bad reviews describing the dress as plain ugly...what do you think? ya or nay?

As for Dita Von Teese, i absoultely loved her dress, it embodies every little girl's dream to grow up and dress like a princess. As for her face, i want to wash off all that paint, girls are more beautiful natural-including Dita!

Eve looks quiet underdressed when compared to Dita, and her outfits not bad but not particulary exciting either...at least she's got those puppy paws showing on her...well..puppies ;)

Now to my favourite little twins, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. Ashley Olsen looked absolutely elegant in her long slimline white dress, natural make-up and simple hair.

Whilst her sis Mary-Kate proved that their was no dress code for the event, by wearing a short bubble dress and Giambattista Valli's 'Victoria' shoe. Although she looked like a prostitute, i love both their outfits :)

Gorilla Suiting

It's Big, it's Black! It's hairy!!!
Each winter we see at least one fashionista wrapping up from the winter chills in a oversized furry black jacket, otherwise known as the 'Gorilla Suit'.

As usual it was the Brits with Kate Moss and Victoria Beckham daring to venture out in a look that others would happily avoid. However, for those who love the hairy look but don't want the excess why not do like Maggie Gyllenhaal and wear little furry shoulders to bring a little ape into your life?

If I'm going to wear the gorilla look i would do it all the way just like Miss Moss, so will you be donning the Gorilla look this winter?

Christian Louboutin Ariella Studded Boots

My favourite shoes of the season, without a doubt in my mind is the Christian Louboutin Ariella Studded Shoes. Although its heading into summer in Australia, it doesn't stop me from imagining myself trotting around New York in these sexalicious boots.

But i am getting more and more frustrated at myself lately wondering why i wasn't born a rich heiress or a child star, because if i had been, then i would be wearing these love-them-or-hate-them-shoes right now along with my celebrity BFF's Ashley Olsen and Model Coco Rocha...i guess some of us can only dream :(
If you love them and are lucky enough to get them you can purchase them online at Net-a-Porter for approximately US $1060. At the moment the black ones are sold out, but the fuchsia ones are pretty cool too...

The Cruise Girls

I don't know what Tom Cruise feeds his women, but whatever it is these girls know how to dress.

His ex Nicole Kidman attended the Country Music Awards in a ravishing printed gradient dress by Alexander McQueen, while Tom Cruise's current leading lady, Katie Holmes wore an elegant midnight blue velvet gown this week.

Both these women always look elegant and show us that moms can be hotties too...

Shock in Pink and Red

Throw out whatever nanna told you about always complimenting your outfit with contrasting colors, these days in tinseltown it seems, clashing colours is all the rage, especially that of hot pink and red.

Thanks to the influence of Zac Posen's Resort collection, stylish celebs including Cate Blanchett and Gwyneth Paltrow have stepped out in a few of his bright numbered ensembles.This week saw petite beauty Eva Longoria wearing this two toned trend, and looked just as good doing it.

What's your view on this color combination, love it or hate it?

Paris and Nicky Hilton in Japan

Paris and Nicky Hilton made time out of their busy shopping schedule to promote Designer, Samantha Tharvasa Bags in Japan.

By the looks of it, i think Paris Hilton's outfit got more attention then the bags themselves. Don't get me wrong, I'm all for cute 60's dresses and coloured leggings, but the girl looks retarded. I'm also sick of seeing those massive sunglasses.

I think it would have been better off if she had gone to Africa for charity work (like she promised) rather than let the world cast their eyes on this outfit.

Her sister Nicky wore a similar style dress, but ditched the leggings and let her Chanel Fall 2007 buckle booties do all the talking. These much talked about Chanel shoes are definitely very girl and, perhaps may look better with a tougher outfit, but for now these shoes are definitely not my cup of tea.

Recent purchases

These are just a few of my recent purchases.
Shoe booties: Secondhand $4.00
Bag: Small asian handbag store near my home, $69.00
Red Clutch: $12.99
Purple wallet: $24.99, the ruching reminded me of Prada, so i had to get it.
Perfume: Dolce and Gabanna 'The One' bought by my boyfriend.
Sunglasses: Marc Jacobs MJ 016 Scott aviators in Brown AU $201 from Otticanet, i think my colour is sold out now.

Victoria Beckham: The true recycler

Victoria Beckham once again recycles her exsiting wardrobe as she dons a silver Fendi tank in the new Spice Girls calender. She wore the same tank at the launch of dVb at Saks Fifth Avenue.

If your going to spend that much money on clothing, i'm guessing you would have to wear it more than once, in my case prehaps a 100 times.

If you want to see a few of Victoria Beckham's repeated past outfits click here.

Bras work wonders..

For those of you who thought Lindsay Lohan was super cool partying all night without a bra on and flinging her bra-less breasts at everyone, then you are surely mistaken.

The results of her actions can be seen in this photo, were at 21 her boobs are already starting to droop. Umm Lindsay, the belt up that high doesnt count as a bra, just thought i would let you know.

Angelina Jolie skinny mini

Umm how come nobody seems to bitch about Angelina Jolie being so ridiculously skinny? Ok magazines sometimes try to pick at it, but nobody seems to care.

Victoria Beckham always gets slammed for it, yet i think Angelina would have to be just as skinny. Maybe because the world loves Angelina and all her Charity work, that they have decided to turn a blind eye to it.
But she is looking rather gaunt at the set of her new film Changeling...

Britney Still hates her kids

I hate bagging on Britney, i really do, but she just keeps adding fuel to the fire, and makes it hard for anyone to ignore what she does.

The custody battle between Spears and Federline is at it's peak at the moment, with Kevin tarnishing Brits name as a fit mother. In order to prove herself, the court appointed the pop princess a few days to show them just how great of a mother she can be to Sean and Jayden.

Most people would think of this as a superb opportunity but when your Britney, chandeliers are worth more than children. In the few precious days that she could have spent time with her children, Britney decided that it was far more important to go shopping for chandeliers. She spent hours in the lighting store and kept her upset children in the car.

To make matters worse she asked the court appointed supervisor to supervise the kids while she shopped. The supervisor can make or break your custody battle, and Britney has most defintely damaged all her chances of getting her babies back anytime soon.

Not that she cares, because in Britney's eyes as long as your wearing Chanel 4157Q sunglasses, carrying a Hermes Kelly bag and shopping, shopping, shopping...then life is sweet....apparently...

Celeb Lust: Valentino Bags

Valentino has always been known for his ability to whip up dream creations that make any conscious women salivate, and this is no different when it comes to his handbag collection.

The bag that seems to be popping up on quiet a few celebs of late is the Valentino Pintucked bag as seen on Victoria Beckham and the Valentino Maison bag as seen on Nicole Richie and Molly Sims. They're both exactly the same except for one small detail-the Maison bag (the white one) does not have contrast stitching.

This bag will set you back approximately $2300 at Bergdorf Goodman, but if your lusting after a python skin version as worn by Katherine Heigl, then you better be prepared to folk out $3500. I really like this bag, but at 5 foot 1, the length of the bag is probarbly half my size, so if i could afford it, i probarbly wouldn't get it.

However, the red one is gorgeous, after all red is quinnesential Valentino..

Style Sirens go off at Screenings

This week both Sarah Michelle Gellar and Katie Holmes looked absolutely beautiful attending film screenings.

Sarah Michelle Gellar is making her way back into the limelight with fabulous outfits recently, and this is no exception. A mere mortal would find this dress very hard to pull off without looking maternal, but SMG pulled it off well, keeping the colors monochrome and polishing off with a pair of gorgeous patent Christian Louboutin heels (if anybody wants to buy me a pair, feel free ;)

As for Katie Holmes, she looked like a greek goddess at the Premier of Lions for Lambs, wearing a black one shoulder dress and a pyramid stud clutch.

The poor girl gets a bad rap quiet a lot, but I've been a fan of her since Dawson's Creek, so it ain't stopping now.

The Return of Jessica Simpson

After her divorce and her dried up relationship with John Mayer, Jessica Simpson fell into Hollywood's shadow, but now shes re-emerging and I'm loving it.

After all this is the girl that introduced me to the importance of status bags and open my eyes to a world where cotton bed sheets can cost well into the thousands.

Watching Newly Weds, led Jessica Simpson to become my 2nd girl crush of all time, after the Spice Girls back in the day. So this post is a dedication to my 2nd girl crush (or 6th if you don't count the Spice Girls collectively) and her style back in the day!
