I often wonder aloud how the guy from Klaxons, a terrible band, managed to score babe Keira Knightley, but that is neither here nor there. Keira’s long-running tenure as, you know, Elizabeth Swan paved the way for her public entity, but in the last few years she’s really proved herself as one to be watched, even when pirates aren’t involved. Her willowy figure and easy grace make her the perfect mannequin for high fashion, but she’s also the epitome of cool when she’s off-duty. A cute floral minidress and simple sandals are a go-to for any casual summer occasion… even if you lack Keira’s long legs and English charm. (I do. Severely.) [Photo: FameFlynet] Keep reading »
I don’t know much about Jordana Brewster, other than the fact that she’s an actress and was in that terrible movie “D.E.B.S.” But that was a long time ago, and apparently Jordana has had a resurgence on television with “Dallas,” which I have never seen. I’m seriously flashing my incompetency right now, no? Anyway, I really love this outfit, but what makes me like it (and Jordana) considerably more is the fact that she was photographed earlier in the day in jeans, presumably pre-shopping, then reemerged from a boutique wearing this maxi skirt — an impatient girl after my own heart!

A slightly amended version of this spot-on summer look, right this way… Keep reading »

But there’s one thing about this amazing season that fills me with dread, that makes me sigh dramatically as I unpack my summer wardrobe, that makes me cringe at the thought of an afternoon stroll through the park. Two words, my friends: thigh chafing.
According to fashion magazines and fitness shows and hipster photos on Pinterest, all women are supposed to have a generous gap between our thighs (judging from Pinterest, ideally the gap should be large enough to frame a picture of the sunset). I’ve been many different weights in my life, but honestly, I can’t remember a time when my thighs didn’t touch. In the fall and winter when I’m always wearing tights or pants, this isn’t a problem at all. In the summer, when I’m wearing mini skirts and breezy dresses, it is a huge problem… Keep reading »
Let’s ignore the fact that from the neck up Eva Longoria seems to be rapidly morphing into a Kardashian, and talk about her awesome outfit instead.
