Only a sexy mama like R&B singing sensation Rihanna could take an umbrella — an insignificant item that exists for pure practical purposes — and turn it into the sexiest must have accessory ever! What is the source of her immense appeal? Well just look at the girl! She’s not only gorgeous, she exudes fierce confidence and bold sex appeal no matter what she’s doing or what she’s wearing. For this week’s date-night edition, three of Ri Ri’s hottest looks to help you rock it like this stunner on your next big date. Keep reading »
Summer is in the air, a time of year to get in touch with your softer side — softer hairstyles (my favorite being soft, loose, beachy-waves), softer makeup, softer colors, and softer silhouettes. While my personal style is kind of on the edgy/eclectic side, I have a friend who seldom navigates away from flirty, ultra-femme styles. She rocks this look everywhere, from formal dates, to casual dates, from upscale bars to seedy, dive bars, this gal loves to embrace her femininity. This style is also a favorite of one of my favorite fashion trend-setters, Zooey Deschanel (one half of Frisky favorite, She & Him), who appropriately graces the cover of Lucky‘s July issue in a sweet floaty number, a style she’s loved for as long as she can remember.

Last week I provided date-night ensemble ideas inspired by images from Sex and the City and now that the day is finally here, I’ve decided to go into a bit more depth with fashion rules and guidelines inspired by TV’s most beloved fab foursome. For six seasons, these ladies taught us to adopt an ‘anything goes’ approach to fashion, among other things — though we still haven’t forgiven Patricia Field for those giant flower pins.

For six seasons, Sex and the City made it its mission to shape pretty much every aspect of our lives — the cocktails we drank, the ensembles we wore, the way we dished about sex, how we dealt with men, how many friends we had (you know you feel kinda like you’re living in your own little SATC world every time you’re out with four friends!), how we defined ourselves (I consider myself a “Carrie”, what about you?), and so much more. The SATC impact is so strong, it continued on unabated well after the series ended. May 30th is just around the corner, a date marking the much anticipated SATC movie premiere where we will all be reunited with our four favorite fictional gal pals. Once it hits, there is little doubt that this is all anyone will be talking about (well, the entire female population at least), and any garment even remotely resembling an item seen on the big screen will fly off the racks faster than you can say Manolo Blahnik.
Thanks to a little thing called “promotional pictures”, we can satiate out intense need for a SATC fix, plus get a head-start on replicating the signature styles of our favorite socialistas. Why not start by channeling your inner Carrie, Samantha, Miranda, or Charlotte on your next big date? Keep reading »
Part three in our series about The Hills‘ girls’ style is Audrina Partridge. The most “rock ‘n’ roll” of the group, Audrina has a real knack for infusing even the most basic items with a edge, which she softens with feminine touches. She’s not afraid to play up her sexuality but always manages to stop short of being too overtly sexual.

Whitney Port, from The Hills, manages to infuse even the most daring items with sleek femininity and sophistication for a unique sense of style. Whitney loves to mix it up by playing with the unexpected and not being afraid to try a range of looks, from demure and dainty to scandalous and sexy. She’s a big fan of adding offbeat elements, like a rare vintage top or statement-making accessories; to showcase her utterly unique sense of style that is so effortless. Keep reading »
