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..

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 :)
