Copy Cat Ideas To Try This Weekend

This is a polished denim look that you can try this weekend with items that you probably already have in your closet. It's easy to put together and looks chic and classic.

MIAMI DATE NIGHT

Katie Holmes in Miami

I really love a sexy lace top with anything from cute shorts, skirts or in this case skinny jeans.  I adore the way Mrs. Cruise put it together (or her stylist anyway) from the color combination to the pink bra underneath. Great & easy look to copy!

Color me sexy! (hair trends)






Check out Ombré the hottest hair trend in Fashion & Hollywood right now! I have to admit that I am a  fan of any look that gives the illusion that you are not trying too hard and this hair trend does just that! I think it's cool, sexy and when done right (PLEASE make sure it's done right or it can go real wrong) it's fabulous. Check out the pics & how to video. Friends I would not try this at home!

Okay so the key to getting the The Ombré look is to create a gradual gradual fade of colours that should either be very feathery and subtle, or if you like VERY dramatically obvious. I would go for subtle...just sayin'.
The difference between this and just letting your roots go wild is that over-grown roots typically look like two colours that don't match put side by side with an obvious borderline in between. With the Ombré it is obvious (when done right) that the effect was intended, with colours that compliment and fade into each other.

Winged Eye Liner

Okay I am that girl who really likes being all made up. If I could walk around all day totally made up like the Kardashian clan I would! One of my favorite looks is the winged eye-liner. I just think that it's dramatic and can be part of your day or night look. I have to admit that it's all about practice, practice and some more practice, but so worth it. Here is the queen of the winged eye-liner Lauren Conrad and some helpful tips to help you achieve it. 







  • Using a black liquid liner with a very thin brush such as  (mark Get in Line liquid liner) gently drag the brush along your lashline starting from the top inner corner of your eye toward the outer corner of your eye.
  • Be sure to follow the natural shape of your eye. When you try to change the shape of your eyes with liner, it actually makes them look smaller. Very counterproductive.
  • The trick is to line as close to the lashes as humanly possible.
  • The firmer you press the brush, the thicker the line will be.
  • Use a hands-free mirror and keep your eye relaxed and slightly open as you line.
  • This is very important: Once you finish lining your eye, do not blink for at least 10-15 seconds to allow the liner to dry. 
  • After you have lined both eyes, be sure to compare the liner on each eye. Are they even? If not, simply take a pointed q-tip and lightly drag the line along the eye to make it symmetrical to the other eye.
These celebrities "wing" it.

Copy Cat!!

AN AUGUST 20TH WEDDING?

Kim Kardashian at LAX-
Love this flirty summer look and I know that most of us own at least two of the pieces that she is wearing. Ripped up jeans, white tee, nude shoes.....I even have the yellow bag and bright cardigan! This is an easy look to copy with what you may already have in your wardrobe. Take the cue of the the "bright" colors and go from there! 


SWEARING UP A STORM


Cameron Diaz on her promotional tour for Bad Teacher is wearing skinny white jeans with a black tee and nude heels. Again all pieces that we should already have in our closet. Really chic look & so easy to put together!
OSCAR ROMANCE?
Taylor Swift at LAX. Another adorably chic look that can be put together easily. Most of us have a black and white striped tee so all you need is a bouncy red skirt or even red shorts may work well.Check out a look-alike skirt at www.forever21.com

RACHEL'S LATEST FASHION MUST-HAVES
Rachel Bilson leaving a business meeting in West Hollywood. Cheetah print top  with sleeves rolled up, skinny black jeans, studded bag and boots. Rachel Bilson is one of my fashion icons because she always looks put together, but comfortable. This is going to be a great fall outfit!

studded bag satchel black-bodhi nolita satchel
You need a studded bag. This is a subtle studded bag and not too over the top....for the beginner in you. 
Nolita Satchel studded bag $160 plus 50% off! Buy it at www.lastcall.com

Here are are some "hot" ideas to wear on your date night with your honey!
