Vogue's Best Dressed Edition

Virginie, Jenna, Prisca & Claire Courtin-Clarins

       Vogue magazine recently came out with their special edition "Vogue Best Dressed" issue. Each glossy page is filled with glamorous socialites and celebrities, dressed head to toe in fabulous ensembles. The issue contains  recaps of the top trends, rising starlets, the best-dressed sisters, and of course, the royal wedding. I had never realized how many fashionable sisters there were! Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, Beyonce and Solange Knowles, Dakota and Elle Fanning, and Kate and Pippa Middleton just to name a few.

       Although all of these ladies are stunning, Virgine, Jenna, Prisca, and Clair Courtin-Clarins popped out of the pages. Their striking features and mile-long legs are only accessories for their immaculate style. Although they aren't all sisters (Virginie and Claire are sisters, while Jenna and Prisca are their twin cousins), style definitely runs in the family blood. They are no doubt my favorites from the issue.

       If you haven't gotten your issue yet, it's a great buy for some fashion inspiration and eye candy. Have you read Vogue's Best Dressed? Who are your favorites?

Glitz & Glamour

       Sequins and metallics are definitely popular trends for the fall and winter and the red carpet of the 2011 American Music Awards on Sunday was filled with sparkling ensembles. Taylor Swift was my absolute favorite from the red carpet wearing Reem Acra. Her full sequin dress was dazzling! It's a trend that I've always loved, and it looks like it's going to be around for a while.

       Who doesn't love a little sparkle? I'm absolutely loving the glitz, so for my semi-formal event for my sorority this past weekend, I went with a short mini sequin dress from Forever 21 with my Steve Madden glitter heels.

       With this trend at an all-time high, you can find the perfect dress or outfit for all of your holiday festivities; especially fabulous for New Year's Eve! Whether you're looking for just an eye-catching accessory or a bold and shiny outfit, don't be afraid to try this trend for yourself too! For an affordable outfit, check out Forever 21 and Express.

Cobalt Blue and Fuschia

My two very favorite colors to wear are definitely cobalt blue (electric blue) and fuchsia (bright pink)! And I think they look great together for a bold look. They're great for nails, clothing, and some jewelry, but I'd try to steer clear of makeup in these color unless you looking for a smoky blue and black eye or a bright, look-at-me pout.

What are your favorite colors to wear?

Daring or Dreadful: Two-Toned/Ombre Hair

       Every Friday while I'm watching Fashion Police on E!, I always think to myself how much I love Giuliana Rancic's hair color! Her roots start in a dark brown shade, but as the hair falls, the color lightens until it's basically butterscotch blonde at the tips. Her two-toned hair, also known as ombre, always catches my eye, and I'm loving it!

       Giuliana isn't the only celebrity trying out this trend though. Shenae Grimes, Drew Barrymore, Hilary Duff, Jessica Biel, Rachel Bilson, Sarah Jessica Parker, and my favorite, Lauren Conrad, among others have been experimenting with this look. It's almost like they let their roots grow out so that their natural color shows, but the color happens to blend perfectly with the previous color. Have you tried coloring your hair this way, or is your hair naturally like this? I would love to hear for my followers!

                              What's your take on this hair trend? Daring or Dreadful?
