Emmy’s Fashion Favorites

30 Aug

Ok, it was another “safe” night on the red carpet…no swan dresses or ballerina costumes to be found.  So, there aren’t many dresses to gawk at and have a laugh…shame that everyone had to go and hire a stylist!  However, there were some good–not GREAT–but definitely good choices out there.

These were my favorites…

*Keri Russell

*Claire Danes

*Jayma Mays

*Tina Fey

Style Icon: Charlotte Gainsbourg

13 Aug

Charlotte Gainsbourg, the actress/singer daughter of the late Serge Gainsbourg and British actress Jane Birkin, is one of the people named in September’s Vanity Fair as part of their “Best Dressed List ” of 2010.  I couldn’t agree with her selection more!

Gainsbourg’s style pedigree–as the daughter of Jane Birkin–is impressive indeed, but the lithe beauty brings a freshness all her own to her favored bohemian French classics.  This relaxed refinement has not gone unnoticed, garnering Gainsbourg advertising campaigns for such venerable brands as Balenciaga and Gerard Darel.

Below–a sampling of her style…enjoy!

Oprah’s Santa Barbara library (or, why I cry myself to sleep at night)

11 Aug

Ok, so Oprah has pretty much everything one could ever want.  Established. But, it was when I first laid eyes on her custom-curated library in an issue of “O at Home” magazine that she’d finally broken my heart.  This room is my dream.  Oprah, shmoprah!

At Home With: Sheryl Crow

27 Jul

The July issue of Elle magazine features a spread dedicated to Sheryl Crow’s fascinatingly eccentric Manhattan apartment.  She’s a collector of many things–from early prosthetic limbs to antique clawfoot tubs–shying away from little when assembling her collection of decorative accessories.

However, what the home conveys most of all is not eccentricity, but rather warmth…it’s a lovely home for a seemingly lovely person to gather her friends and family in…

The Intellectual Fashionista: Cate Blanchett

19 Jul

Cate Blanchett embodies a certain grace and style rarely seen in actresses these days.  Her red-carpet choices aren’t always beautiful, but they’re unfailingly interesting and always worn beautifully.

A sampling of her eclectic style:


Oh, to have been a fly on the wall!

Valentino held a couture-week bash at his home outside Paris to celebrate the opening of his archives.  Along with browsing the photos and sketches, I might have tried to listen in on the following conversations…
