Oscar Fashion Favorites 2008

I didn't get a chance to post this yesterday but I wanted to find out what you guys thought of the red carpet fashion at the 2008 Oscars. The red carpet in general was a little disappointing...where was everybody? Here are my top four picks. I think Jenifer Garner has the overall best look. Jennifer Garner. Shown: Jennifer Garner, in Oscar de la Renta, Van Cleef & Arpels jewelry, and a Roger Vivier clutch. Cameron Diaz, in Christian Dior, Bulgari jewelry, and a Roger Vivier clutch.

Three Ways to Wear a Vest

So I recently bought this new pinstripe vest and I did some research on different ways to wear it. Here are some ideas 1. Pair with a short sleeve blouse 2. Pair with a screen printed rocker tee (like the ones Kate Moss did for Topshop) 3. Pair with a tank top or camisole.

Intervene Foundation by Elizabeth Arden

Intervene foundations is a liquid makeup product by Elizabeth Arden. It contains Biodormin™ which helps fight signs of aging. The mineral pigment helps create a smooth and even surface and hide imperfections. And Intervene contains SPF 15 so it is perfect for the upcoming spring and summer months. I was asked to try Invervene and I was really happy with the product. It left a nice glowing finish to my skin and it blended in perfectly to create a natural look. Here is a picture of me wearing Intervene.

Halston - Then and Now

Luxury 70's brand Halston has recently been relaunched with Harvey Weinstein leading the charge. The newly appointed creative director for Halston is Marco Zanini, whom previously worked for Donatella Versace. Halston made a big splash at it's runway debut last week with Liza Minnelli arriving on the arm of Harvey Weinstein in a vintage Halston pantsuit. Halston's Fall collection definitely has a 70's re-make feel. It will be interesting to see if the line maintains it's retro inspiration moving forward.

Anna Corinna Handbags

I love this handbag by Anna Corinna of Foley + Corinna. The mix of metallic silver and black leather in diaganol stripes gives the bag an edgy look. After carrying a large bag for the last year, this smaller bag 20"W x10"H x 5.5"D seems like the perfect size. Available at Revolve Clothing.

BCBG Fashion Show - Always a Pleasure

Friday was a dark rainy wet day in New York. No wonder one of the BCBG models slipped and fell on her tush during the runway show. BCBG is one of my favorite clothing lines. They always have innovative yet wearable clothing, shoes and handbags. And their Fall Collection continues the legacy.
