This morning on the subway, a woman was loudly making fun of Rachel Zoe’s vocal inflections, as if it was 2009 and doing so was at all culturally relevant. This same woman was also loudly telling her traveling companion about how she’s writing a memoir. A yoga memoir. So yeah.
Speaking of Rachel Zoe, I guess she was out and about on Wednesday with a young girl who is possibly a fashion muse or a relative or Harvey Weinstein’s niece. Whichever the case, the way the young girl is dressed represents “actual weather,” while Rachel Zoe’s ensemble represents “weather in Rachel Zoe’s idea environ.” Whatever, I’m super into it, and I need to know where she gets her absolutely perfect flared jeans.

What to wear to the premiere of the hilarious, female-driven new comedy “The To Do List”? A short party dress, natch. I’m completely obsessed with Rachel Bilson’s blue frock, while Aubrey’s sweetheart neckline dress is adorable too. Done well, ladies. [Photo: INFPhoto.com]
Cate Blanchett sure ain’t afraid of no freaky fashion, but what’s really almost miraculous about it is that, even at her strangest, the esteemed actress is very rarely a sartorial flop. This Balenciaga cape-over-frock look, for example? My initial reaction is to be like, “god, that’s weird,” but the longer I look at it, the more I’m convinced that Cate can take even the weirdest silhouette and turn it into something really, really convincing.
This floral peasant skirt and button-down look isn’t for fashion novices. After all, there are lots of ways to screw this up: wearing the blouse tucked all the way in; finding a skirt that’s just a bit too short or way too long; trying to pair it all with platform sandals or something. But thankfully, Alexa Chung knows exactly what she’s doing. The skirt is above the knees but not scandalously short, and she keeps her top half looking reserved but sexy at the same time. Yeah, yeah, we know we call on Alexa as a style icon all the friggin’ time, but it’s pretty clear she deserves it, yes? [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
Saying Dita Von Teese looks flawless is about as surprising as saying Connie Britton is having a good hair day or Justin Bieber looks like he is in dire need of a diaper change, but whatever, just LOOK AT HER. I especially love the color palette and print on this dress, as well as the curve-hugging shape (natch) and dainty red straps. Like I said, flawless. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
I like to think of Vanessa Hudgens as the Resident Bad Girl Of Disney ™. Sure, she parties, and there was that nude photo thing, but the girl endured several years of “dating” Zac Efron (take those quotes exactly as they’re intended), so she deserves to have a little fun. Plus, she generally always looks good. Like take this white on white ensemble. She’s showing a bit of skin, but keeps it classy with the up-do and the flowy trousers. This is the perfect virginal outfit to wear when you’re doing press for your sexy criminal teen movie (“Spring Break”), which is exactly what V.Hudg is doing here. [Photo: FameFlynet]
