Fashion Bite: Denim White

With Summer approaching for the other half of the world, what better way to welcome the sunshine than in a crisp pair of white jeans.

Whitney Port showed us that white isn't just reserved for summer's baby-doll dresses, teaming her white Work Custom jeans with a jester-style beaded sweater and black buckle boots.

Hilary Duff kept her white denim youthful with a Harlow Watercolor tank and a classic Louis Vuitton Damier Azur Speedy handbag.

Michelle Williams and her gorgeous daughter, Matilda, were out walking wearing matching cross-body satchel bags. Michelle smartened the look up with classic Ray Ban wayfarer sunglasses, crisp shirt and pastel pink ballet flats.

Vanessa Hudgens of High School Musical and nude photo scandal fame, is one of the new generation trendsetters. Always seen in the latest must-have she wore her light denim with her CC skye chain bracelets, Christian Louboutin Heels and a best-selling Botkier Morgan fringe bag.

Always one to make a statement that usually requires minimal clothing, Pamela Anderson has been bringing the fashion goods ever since she signed up as face of Vivienne Westwood. Miss ex-Tommy Lee/Kid Rock/Rick Salomon looked unusually put together in an all white ensemble with Prada Spr 17 IS sunglasses and a covetable Hermes Birkin Bag in White.

Wide legs: It's Jean-etic

This season 70's influences have seen us wearing oversized sunglasses, fringe boots and fur jackets. So it's no surprise that ankle swaying flare jeans have come back as the new direction in denim styles. Due to the fact that skinny jeans have had a good 5 years in the limelight, more and more celebrities are reverting back to the classic.
Recently Jessica Alba, Victoria Beckham, Paris Hilton and Claudia Schiffer opted for dark flared jeans teamed with oversized sunglasses to give them that ultimate 70's look. While Nicole Richie, Katie Holmes and Miley Cyrus prefer casual light washes with extra slouch. Whether you prefer dark and dressed up or light and casual, it is definitely time to embrace the trend.

Posh Peepers: Gucci Studded Sunglasses

Gucci's most recent collection saw lanky models slithering down the runway in fringe, leather, velvet and stud detailed attire. It was a cross between the 70's carefree bohemian and the ultimate rock and roll groupie. This feel has been transferred to Gucci's new eyewear collection. Adornments including gold horse bits, metal bows and studs have been creatively placed to heighten the rock star feel.
The direction seems to be working in Gucci's favour as many celebrities have been seen in Gucci's new eyewear collection including High School Musicial Star, Ashley Tisdale. The 23 Year Old was seen wearing Gucci GG 3037 s aviator. It's a sturdy plastic aviator with glamorous gold studded temples. It's a very cool easy going pair that is recommended for those who want that extra BAM to their look.
Gwen Stefani is never one to shy away from bold styles. This week she was seen wearing a new pair of Gucci GG 3039 s. It is an oversized shield style that well definitely have you standing out.
Both Ashley Tisdale and Gwen Stefani's sunglasses can be purchased authentically at the professional sunglass site Otticanet for US $230.

Drew & Dresses

I'm not entirely sure what's going on with Drew Barrymore lately but she's been looking amazing beyond belief. Perhaps it's a new stylist or just the glow of getting back with on-off boyfriend Justin Long, either way, she was a knock-out in this asymmetric 60's striped Narcisco Rodriguez dress at Live with Regis and Kelly.
Kim Kardashian came out today to support Tori Spellings new "intellectually stimulating" guide to motherhood in Hollywood appropriately called Mommywood. Kim looked sweet in a Camilla and Marc Alabama dress in creme.
As Drew was out promoting her new television film Grey Gardens yesterday i was left speechless by her ensemble. She looked breathtaking in a Alberta Ferretti bead and sequin gown complete with a matching veil. This vintage nod is by far one of my favourite celebrity looks of recent time.

Belles in Chanel

If there is one thing women would want to covet in their life, it's Chanel. Perhaps a bag, a watch or a pair of interlocking double CC logo earrings. While these may be easier to get a hold of, a Chanel dress is not as easy. This season, Chanel's trademark black and white dresses were out in full force on many Hollywood talents including Kiera Knightley and Anne Hathaway. Kyra Sedgwick gets bonus points for choosing a classic Chanel vintage dress.



However, no matter how great a design house is, there is always that one special person out their who can make it tacky, so today ladies and gentlemen, i present Heidi Montag. Note to all: Chanel logo-loaded fingers nails are not a good look.

Eva Longoria at the Matthew Williamson Fall 2009 Show

Earlier in the year the stars came out to view the Fall 2009 designer collections. Sitting front row Eva Longoria shone in a beautiful Matthew Williamson coat. I am in love with this multi-colored coat, it has such a regal appeal.

Kirsten Dunst at the Rodarte Show

Kirsten Dunst attended the Fall 2009 Rodarte Fashion show wearing a multi-colored knit dress from the designers Fall 2008 collection. Definitely not a dress that compliments everyones taste, but Kirsten Dunst wears it well and somehow makes it look ladylike.
