HELP! I just watched Tina Fey’s ‘SNL’ episode that premiered a few weeks ago and I am obsessed with the red dress she is wearing in the opening monologue. The only links I could find with “Tina Fey” and “red dress” were pretty much only concerned with her recent nip slip and not her actual dress- ha! Help me out, please! – Katy
First of all, Katy, I would like to apologize for the delay in responding to your request. Damn Gmail and it’s weird sorting! Anyway, I wasn’t able to figure out who designed the dress Tina was wearing during her opening monologue oh so many weeks ago, but let’s face it, it was probably a high-end designer piece with a hefty price tag. The good news is that this particular silhouette is everywhere and there were so many similar options that I actually had to narrow it down to just seven — three with similar short and/or cap-sleeves, and four with slightly longer or three-quarter sleeves. But all in bright fire engine red. Check ‘em out below! Keep reading »
“Hey y’all, Looking for this dress or a way cheaper version of this look Kat Dennings wore to the ‘Thor’ premiere. The dress, the lips, the nails, the shoes… everything! Can you help?” — Ashley
Ashley, I could not agree with you more. Kat Dennings is stunning in this Naeem Khan cocktail dress. The neck-to-knee burgundy embroidery accentuates her every curve, and Kat’s choice to pair this dress with simple eye makeup, matching lipstick, nude pumps, and glittery purse makes for an alluring combination. If I could find this dress for less, I would be wearing it right now. Unfortunately, I’m gonna guestimate that this Naeem Khan cocktail dress will sell for over $1,000 once it’s available. The good news is, you can recreate this look by substituting the red dress for some of these affordable options…
A classic little black swing dress is simply glamorous way to transition into winter. Style with leggings, stockings, statement jewelry, booties, or knee high boots to create multiple looks. The beautiful drape of Elieen Fisher’s silk A-line dress can also be found in ASOS’s CURVE shift dress with embellished cuff. Get it before it’s gone!

Because why not show off your best self when you’re out on the town? Keep reading »
Winona’s been craving a style makeover. She wants to change up her wardrobe and add some spiiiiice with some bombshell-style fitted dresses that really accentuate her va-va-voom curves. (Think “Mad Men”‘s Joan Holloway for reference.) The trick, of course, with this 1960s silhouette is looking cute without veering to close to costume-y. You’re not in the touring company of “Hairspray,” after all. If you’re craving some retro-fied curvy numbers, there’s a bevy of online options. Shops like Shabby Apple, Bettie Page Clothing, Daddy-O’s, Unique Vintage and Trashy Diva are all great resources if you’re looking for reproductions of styles from the ’40s, ’50s and ’60s, while sites like Modcloth offer more modern takes on those designs.
