Claire Danes in Givenchy at the 2013 SAG Awards

Claire Danes walked the red carpet for the 2013 SAG Awards in this single-sleeved black Givenchy gown featuring a thigh-high slit with a printed pattern.

The Homeland actress accented her elegant look with Neil Lane jewels and black Givenchy ankle wrapped heels.

A wine stained lip and lovely side-swept chignon added the finishing touches to her red carpet ensemble.

I loved everything about Claire's look, however I think her makeup may have been too dark for her fair complexion. What do you think?

Jennifer Lopez Covers InStyle's September 2012 Issue

Jennifer Lopez graces the cover of InStyle magazine's September issue wearing a Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci top and skirt. The 43-year-old entertainer dishes on her divorce from Marc Anthony, being a parent and, of course, being in love.

Jennifer on love: “The most important quality the man in my life should have is that he is sweet. I like the good guys… The hard part is that you never stop believing in love. You never stop. But that’s also the best part. You never stop believing, and you never, ever give up.”

Jennifer on dealing with tough times: “I live by the mantra that God doesn’t give you anything you can’t handle. It’s not until something bad or difficult happens that you really get to grow. And then you realize that those difficult moments, the times when you feel pain, are when you do a lot of your growing. You realize: There’s no reason to be terrified of things. Either way I’m going to be OK.”

Jennifer on being a parent: “Of course, I’m the same as any parent. I feel the pressures of wanting to be a great parent and of wanting to do right by my children. I feel the pressure of knowing you can’t be perfect even though you want to be. One thing I’ve learned: Being a mom, or a dad, is the most important job there is. It doesn’t matter who you are. You have to embrace it for everything that it is.”

Will you be picking up a copy when the issue hits stands on August 17th?

Spring Wishlist: Pretty Pastels~

Jill Stuart, Versace and Ralph Lauren all served up delightful stylish scoops of sorbet hues in every color of the rainbow for Spring 2012. We cannot seem to get enough of this girly sweet trend.

The key to pulling off this trend successfully is mixing separates to avoid the Easter egg look. Opt for clean lines and avoid neutrals as a base, but rather use them to accessorize. Pile on the pastels by balancing solids on solids.

Here are some pretty pastel items to add to your Spring Wishlist.
