Celebrity Color Crush - Emerald

The year started off with glamorous green gowns floating down the red carpet at the Golden Globes. Mad Men star Elisabeth Moss showed off her curves in an elegant strapless Donna Karan emerald gown. Mila Kunis turned heads in a sensational single-shoulder Vera Wang gown. Angelina Jolie dazzled in a sequined embellished, long-sleeved Versace gown.


The biggest style moment featuring emerald came from William and Catherine's royal wedding in April. The bride's sister, Pippa, slipped out of her white Alexander McQueen bridesmaid gown into an elegant Alice Temperley custom gown for the reception.  

Diane Von Furstenberg, The Row and Roland Mouret's Fall 2011 RTW collections featured several pieces of the bold color in lush fabrics and dramatic silhouettes.

Celebrity Color Crush - Dove Gray

Shades of gray can be seen popping up in fashion palettes year round. One such color that that is becoming quite a popular shade is dove gray, which is a medium shade of gray that has hints of blue or pink, like a dove.

Last week singer Taylor Swift wore a  beautiful J. Mendel gown with flowing train to the CMA's. Even the Duchess of Cambridge was spotted donning the color at a gala event in a single-shoulder, draped Jenny Packham gown.

Designer Zac Posen crafted several gowns using the romantic color for his spring 2012 runway collection.

Looking Good!

It girl Pippa Middleton was spotted wearing blue on her way to work in London as well.

The 80s staple, blue eye-shadow gets a modern twist as the base palette for a smokey eye. Check out how Emma Stone accented with a hint of indigo, making her eyes sparkle!

Fashion Week Fall 2011~ Derek Lam

Derek Lam’s latest collection is truly a frivolous play at American sportswear. The show opened with Arizona Muse in a baby blue peacoat, simple white button-up, and an interesting black skirt with a zipper right up and down center front. It's definitely a look for a breezy girl with a life on the go.
One of my favorite looks that he hit trend-on is look 6: a cocoon-type skirt in an interesting print paired with a stylish leather hoodie with waxed fur sleeves to achieve a “wet fur” look. It was very chic.
Other than that, there was a lot of variety in the show, so there is definitely something for everyone in the collection. I’m not 100% sure if I’m a fan of how he styled some of the peacoats as dresses, but the pieces stand well enough on their own for him to get away with it.
Another of my favorite looks is a red leather peacoat paired with a midnight collared shirt and divine two toned pants (which is ultra slimming by the way) in look 14. I’m in love with the whole red, white, and blue thing at the moment!
What do you think? Will you be picking up any Lam pieces this Fall? Let us know and be sure to follow us on Twitter if you haven’t already!
