I didn’t become aware of Anjelica Huston’s fabulousness until she starred in the 1990 film “The Witches” and “The Addams Family” in 1991. But this model and actress has been mesmerizing audiences with her beauty and acting skills since the ’70s. I love looking at old photos of celebrities, and fell for this easy look…

Style Stealer: Solange At The Elle Women In Music Concert

Solange‘s ensemble for the Elle Women in Music concert in Hollywood wasn’t met with the best reception. I’m sure her bralette top has something to do with that. However, the ’70s feel of the high-waist pants, long cardigan, and floppy hat is right in step with the sophisticated bohemian vibe this season. Solange’s look would…

Diane Keaton’s look in “Annie Hall” is so iconic that even decades after the Woody Allen film premiered, her look is still wearable.

Inspiration Board: Chloe Moretz’s Simply Chic Look

OK, so Chloe Moretz is only 13, but that doesn’t mean we can’t worship her style, which is quite mature for her age. Her look of a brown-and-black striped top and thick black shorts would be appropriate for a casual office, dinner with friends, or trip to the theater. So we just had to figure…

Inspiration Board: Lauren Bacall

I was perusing a lifestyle blog yesterday and the subject of Lauren Bacall as a fashion icon came up. I’d heard the actress’ name thrown around with other style icons, like Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe, but I didn’t have a specific picture in my mind of Bacall. Off to our trusty photo agency, I…

Inspiration Board: June Cleaver

The woman behind “Leave It to Beaver”‘s matriarch June Cleaver, Barbara Billingsley, died this weekend at the age of 94. There’s not much of June Cleaver’s life that I’d envy. She had to clean up after three males, fix all the household meals, and didn’t even have Facebook or Twitter to turn to when she…

Independence Day Inspiration Board: Rosie The Riveter

Rosie the Riveter wasn’t a real person, but she did symbolize a generation of patriotic American women and early feminism. When the U.S. needed workers for factories during WWII, women answered the call, working in shipyards, steel mills, warehouses, etc. Rosie the Riveter was the nickname given to women working in war-time industries at thi…

Inspiration Board: Kristin Bauer At The “True Blood” Season 3 Premiere

Kristin Bauer plays the old soulless vampire Pam on “True Blood,” but it seems Kristin might be a bit of an old soul in reality. She could have had her choice of a number of designer outfits for the season three premiere, but instead Kristin wore a retro 1930s-style dress. And we know exactly where…

Dennis Hopper broke from Hollywood convention when he co-wrote, directed, and starred in “Easy Rider,” released in 1969, a movie that tells the story of a cross-country motorcycle trip. At that time, he had only appeared on TV and in small movie roles. He made “Easy Rider” for about $1 million, yet it was a…

Inspiration Board: “Diff’rent Strokes”

My first thought after reading about Gary Coleman’s passing was “Whatchu talkin’ ’bout, Willis?” Even though Gary had some troubles as an adult, I couldn’t help but remember chubby-cheeked Arnold, his character on the ’70s and ’80s show “Diff’rent Strokes.” Then, I thought about the classic urban-American sportswear the young Drummonds and Charlene DuPrey, Janet
