September 2007 Archives



Lauren Conrad has debuted the first portion of her fashion line at shoplaurenconrad.com. We were surprised by the simplicity of her pieces.....and their steep price tags. Most of them are over $100. We were expecting more variations of designs and better-quality fabric. Basically, there are eight styles and they all pretty much come in the same four colors (black, ivory, navy and burgundy). We hope the extended line she introduces in the new year will have a little more uniqueness.

Sorry to do it Lauren, but we've tracked down doppelgangers for a few of your styles.....at much lower price points.

Jennifer Lopez JLo London Fashion Week LFW

Jennifer Lopez was spotted in London recently at the tail end of London Fashion Week. We love her trenchcoat/dress, but she completely over-accessorized this outfit. Everything is beautiful...but it's too much. The bag is gorgeous, but a different shade of green makes it distracting. The bag's brown details fight with all the black in the outfit. Love her boots, but she shows a lot of leg and no arm, thanks to her opera-length leather gloves...and that looks kind of odd. The hat is completely unnecessary. Less is more JLo. So much more.

This outfit would have worked if she lost the hat and the bag and switched out her long gloves for a pair of short wrist gloves. We think these gloves from Nordstom (in any of the colors) would have been great. Or if you prefer Jennifer's opera-length gloves, they're available too.

2. Opera Length Gloves, $148 at nordstrom.com

The bag would be perfect with dark wide-leg jeans and a crisp white menswear dress shirt tucked in. That would really show it off. Love the shape of the bag though...wonder who makes it?

Andrea Bowen Desperate Housewives

Desperate Housewives starlet, Andrea Bowen, sported a fun geometric-print dress at the Teen Vogue Young Hollywood Party last week. Most stylists would tell their clients to stay away from such a vivid pattern, but Andrea wears it well with the perfect pair of pumps to match. We're pretty sure they're the new MARC by Marc Jacobs mary jane pump. In any case, a similar color combo is available now from shopbop.com. This is a shoe to build an entire Fall wardrobe around!

Sex and the City Sarah Jessica Parker Kristin Davis Kim Cattrall Cynthia Nixon

Kristin Davis, Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kim Cattrall all sported different looks on the New York set of the Sex and the City movie on September 21st. The HBO series, known for its fashion, finally got the green light and is in full production mode. And of course, the irreplaceable Patricia Field returns as the costume designer for the film (she styled the actresses during the series and also styled The Devil Wears Prada). The movie is expected to be released in May 2008.

Celebs like Angelina Jolie have been spotted carrying Gerard Darel handbags. This designer line is very popular in Europe and catching on in the United States. The Sweater Knit Satchel (like Ange's) was availalbe at neimanmarcus.com, but has sold out. Good luck finding one! Check out the new collection at gerarddarel.fr
