While not exactly an actress with
great films to her name,
 She's just so pint-sized and adorable!
Here are some great candids of the actress...

Of the Moment 2…

Ok so here are some more of my current obsessions…as I am still in Nantucket and the sun has yet to come out for more than a few hours…

1st obsession: the new Vogue shoot with Cameron Diaz-June Issue

While the magazine may be a timeless classic, no offense to Anna Wintour, but in recent years it has been severely lacking.  Attempting to bring more culture into the magazine with the addition of articles such as workings of an underrated Soho artist or scientific research on the newest beauty frontier, Vogue has seemed to have strayed from the magazine’s priority–fashion. I think the magazine should leave beauty investigation and artistic reviewing to sister mags and drift back into strictly fashion.  In recessionary times such as these, a girl needs her Vogue to keep level headed (as contradictory as that may sound).  

Enough criticism, In Vogue’s most recent issue, one aspect really stood out in my mind–Cameron Diaz’s photo shoot.  The photographers manage to play up Cameron’s easygoing Californian way of life.  In all of the photographs, Cameron is wearing organic clothing.  The creamy white hues look sensational with her tanned skin and blonde tresses.  The set of the shoot was just as amazing as Cameron Diaz herself.  The Parker hotel in Palm Springs is a place I urge you to visit. I visited the hotel last spring with my mother on our spa trip to the desert. While the place was out of our price range, we managed to venture there for brunch.  Upon entering the lobby, It’s as if every piece of the hotel was hand picked for the location. With retro chic furniture, desert hot heat, and absolute luxury, the hotel should been seen as a hot spot destination for anyone planning a trip to Palm Springs.

2nd obsession: Stars wearing Rodarte on the red carpet…

Staying true to my fellow Pasadena natives, I’d like to point out some recent Rodarte sightings.

3rd Obsession: Rachel Bilson and Hayden Christenson in Paris

I’ve always loved Rachel Bilson’s style, but the two of them together? In paris? It’s all just too much.  She’s somehow evolved her style into perfectly Parisian chic.

Favorites from the Met Ball..

Sorry I haven’t been posting recently. I’m struggling as it’s finals week, but I just had to devote at least one post to the Met Ball that was last night.  The dresses/ensembles were simply too beautiful to put off. While the theme was “models as muses,” I think more than just the models’ outfits were muse-worthy. Here are some of my favs…some commentary included…    (photos: style.com)

 

Ashley Olsen in her own line The Row (I love her new haircut, very Gwenyth)

Diane Kruger and Joshua Jackson (she's wearing Chanel Haute Couture) I have to say I'm always a fan of Chanel's white lace (remember Maggie Gyllenhall's white lace with pink bow?)

Kate Hudson, Stella McCartney, Liv Tyler and Kate Bosworth (all of these dresses are just beautiful. Props to Stella she designed them all!) I especially love both Kates' dresses. She captured their essences so well!

Darya Werbowy in Balmain (simple but I really like the ankle boot. Balmain is very chic right now. I'm surprised she didn't choose a higher shoulder)

Mary Kate Olsen in a vintage Christian Lacroix Haute Couture (at first I didn't really like this, but I think the way that she did her hair/makeup makes it look very ethereal and quite beautiful)

Erin Wasson in Phi and Lady Amanda Harlech (I really like Erin Wasson's look. It's not exactly Met Ball appropriate, but I love the edge she always carries with her. The paints look very Alexander Wang.)

Rainy Day Women

The old saying “April Showers Bring May Flowers” could not be more correct. We’ve only had four days of April, but here in Boston  we’re seeing more and more wet weather. I think rain is probably one of the most confusing weather conditions to dress for. You don’t know if it’s cold rain, hot rain or somewhere in between. Frizzy hair, patchy skin, wet clothes, drippy makeup…these symptoms don’t seem too appealing. Sadly, they are the side effects of rainy weather.  While these unfortunate results of rain seem unavoidable, there are ways to still look great in the rain.  Just look at how these ladies prepare for rainy weather…

I don’t think my last Rachel Bilson post did her any justice. I mean come on, What was I thinking? One snapshot of her! Am I kidding? Anyways, here’s the 411 on Miss Bilson.  She always looks stylish whether she’s going to the airport, walking into her house, or attending a red carpet event. Her casual chic appearance has launched the wardrobe inspiration of thousands of women. Here are a few of her best looks…
