The Inspiration Board: Get Angelina’s Sexy Cleopatra Style

Did you hear—Angelina Jolie will play Cleopatra in an upcoming Hollywood blockbuster. Talk about type-casting, Angelina is the perfect fit for the part with her strong facial features and universal beauty.

After the jump, some beauty products (eyeliner obligatory!) and accessories to help you get the look. Keep reading »

The Inspiration Board: The Original Barbie Doll

No matter how you feel about Barbie‘s measurements, her impact on the self-esteem of girls, or her conspicuous consumption, you can’t deny that she’s above all else, a true fashion icon. Barbie has flashed a covetable wardrobe of clothes and accessories–sexy items for every occasion, whether it be lounging by the pool or having brunch with Midge and Skipper–from every decade since her debut. In fact, I especially like the vintage stuff, so I’m taking a bit of inspiration from Debut Barbie, which is a recreation from the original 1959 doll.

The Inspiration Board: The Catcher In The Rye

One of our favorite things about reading The Catcher in the Rye was falling into a world of old-school aesthetics that J.D. Salinger evoked through his descriptions and characters. Yet, we’re finding that Holden Caulfield’s distinctive tone and style is still showing up in our wardrobes today. Some fashionable suggestions after the jump. Keep reading »

The Inspiration Board: “An Education”

“An Education” actress Carey Mulligan may have been robbed of a Golden Globe this weekend, but seeing her on the red carpet reminded us of just how award-worthy her style was in the movie.

The Inspiration Board: Blanche Devereaux

News of Rue McClanahan’s stroke — get well soon, Rue! — got me thinking about her “Golden Girls” character. Blanche Devereaux was by far my favorite roommate on the hit show because she had a sexy spunk that her golden years couldn’t temper. She knew how to saunter into a room, getting the full attention of every silver-haired fox within arm’s reach. Blanche was flashy. Sequins and satin were her fashion mainstays, but she also had a great collection of billowy loungewear. Items inspired by her, after the jump! Keep reading »
