This was my Fav for this year. It's been a very long time since I actually loved a show and if money was not a problem, I would wear every single item in this show. With the Golden Globes and Sag Awards recently were so disappointing on the red carpet, may I say there stylists should have been in Paris. So let me know what you think?

Marion Cotillard Lady Dior interview

Dior "Lady Blue" The Movie Part 1 [HQ]


A true fashionista knows how to pair the high and the low in fashion.  But it isn’t every day that someone takes it to the extreme—like a $15,000 couture dress with good old-fashioned blue jeans.  Naturally, Karl Lagerfeld seems to be one of those few people capable of pulling off such a feat.At Chanel’s spring 2011 couture show, the Kaiser showed the world that some of the best couples are the oddest ones, sending out models swathed in the predictable taffeta and tweed, with denim hiding coyly underneath.  The pants came in a wide range of colors, from rock-n-roll black to bubblegum pink—perfect for matching every outfit in your wardrobe (shop the look here!).  And just in case things weren’t unpredictable enough, some were worn with the sheerest of sheer minis, so transparent that jeans were probably not such a bad idea.
In a meeting with the press, Mr. Lagerfeld cited Chanel’s modern clients, who often pair classic coats with cut-offs, for this haute twist: “It’s not like the old days anymore and couture has to be able to change and adapt.”
Just in time too—with brands like Céline and D&G including jeans in their collections, the look is becoming a major trend for spring 2011 onward.

Sneek Peak into High Gloss Magazine

Starting February 1st, there's a new online design magazine in town. Get ready for your fix of dreamy interiors, travel tips and yes, a surprise celeb guest, in the upcoming High Gloss magazine.
Houston-based Paloma Contreas of La Dolce Vita has been a charming fixture on the blog scene since 2007. But when she decided to branch out into the new world of online-only magazines like Lonny, Rue and Matchbook, she really showed her design chops.

Going from blogger to magazine editor is not as simple a transition as you'd think. While we all rely on design bloggers to search through and curate the best of the best photographs available on the web (or through their scanners), it's up to the editor to go out and produce fresh original content. As you can see from the shot above, Paloma and the High Gloss team took to it easily.

We asked her to share a little bit about the new project:

What's the difference between a High Gloss spread and a Lonny spread/Rue spread/Matchbook spread?

All of the magazines you named have very defined styles and all fit into their own niches. Our style is glamorous and eclectic, and I think you'll notice the Southern and West Coast roots of most of our editors are also a big influence. Rather than focusing mainly on interiors, we'll also have features rooted in fashion, travel and entertaining. We will also have some celebrity features from time to time. We worked on a feature with Chelsea Handler for this issue and two of our team members, Shannon Wollack and Ashley Steen, are designing Chelsea's new home, which we will feature in a future issue.

What's the best/worst part of putting together an online magazine?

The best part has definitely been the creative freedom and being able to work with so many amazing and incredibly talented people. All of the girls on the High Gloss team are the best at what they do and they've continually blown away with their level of talent and dedication to the magazine. We've worked with designers, photographers and other talented people whose work we've admired for so long, so we're incredibly grateful to have had the opportunity to work with them. I also love to travel, which I've been doing a lot of for High Gloss!

I wouldn't say that anything is necessarily bad, but there are so many details to keep track of, which can be challenging at times.

What magazines inspire you?

I read an obscene amount of magazines and I know the other High Gloss girls do, too. Some of our favorites are Vogue, ELLE, ELLE DÉCOR, InStyle, House Beautiful, Vanity Fair, C Magazine, UK'S House and Garden and AD España.

Look of the Day!

Molly Sims

Model turned actress turned jewelry entrepreneur Molly Sims is constantly reinventing herself. The "Las Vegas" star recently launched Grayce by Molly Sims, a line of necklaces, earrings and bracelets carried at Henri Bendel and Scoop and on HSN.

"Welcome to my life, I change careers every two or three years. It's funny, because even though I'm a person who hates change, all the biggest things in my life have come with change. We all play different parts in life," Sims says in the February issue of More magazine. "We just don't always realize it. When I first got into acting, I thought, finally I'm done transitioning. But the truth is, you always want to keep growing and changing."

Sims next role might just involve settling down.

"I know I want to get married and have kids, and hopefully that'll happen," Sims tells the mag. "I just know that I've never been happier in my life than I am right now."

But for right now, Sims is happy to focus on Grayce, which came about as a happy accident when her acting career quieted down.

"My mom's been collecting for years, and she'd always go to antique sales, estate sales, yard sales. So when Hollywood's writers went on strike in 2007, I had a plan B. I really love jewelry, and I just love dressing up," Sims says.

In honor of her many hats, Sims appears in the mag in variation iterations: "The Good Wife" (watch out Juliana Margulies), "The Seductress" and "The Trophy Wife."

For more of Molly's sexy shots and to hear her whole story of reinvention, head over to More.com.

Nicole Richie

I'm Happy to see someone else who wears as much jewelry as I do.

Rose McGowen and Kate Middleton have something in common!

Rose McGowan and Kate Middleton have remarkably similar styles, a fact McGowan cherishes. “If it’s good enough for Kate Middleton, it’s good enough for me!” she told us at Entertainment Weekly’s pre-SAG party in Hollywood, where she wore a hot pink Issa gown, a look that Middleton had worn previously in a slightly different cut. And this that wasn’t the first time McGowan and the Princess-to-be shared an Issa look. “I wore [the label’s] bright green gown to the MOCA and then Kate Middleton wore the blue one to announce her engagement to, you know, the Prince.” So why does she love the Kate Middleton-approved label? “Issa really embraces women’s forms,” McGowan told us. But don’t expect McGowan to admit that she and Middleton are exactly the same. “It might be Issa that brought us together,” she said. “But I don’t wear funny hats. And she probably doesn’t wear five-inch heels.”

Butter London in Knees Up, $14; butterlondon.com.

Essie in Silken Cord, $8; essie.com.

Deborah Lippmann in Bad Romance, $18; deborahlippmann.com.

Rescue Beauty in Catherine Nail Polish, $18; rescuebeauty.com.

Perfect Formula in Pop, $15; perfectformulas.com.

CND in Urban Oasis, $20; CND.com.

Milani in HD - Silver Holographic, $4.49; cvs.com.

NARS in Full Metal Jacket, $16; narscosmetics.com.


Giving your nails the Midas touch requires a bit of finesse. "Make sure to pick a gold that's not too yellow-y, which can look tacky. Choose a warmer tone instead," says Johnson.

OPI in Rising Star, $8; opi.com.
