Dutiful Disney darling Selena Gomez was in London for the launch of the Mouse House’s HD channel. Her skinny jeans and sparkly cap-sleeve top look adorable and are so appropriate for this event. Beside any event where a girl can wear glitter, its a must do.

Hudson news – Red dress alert!


Jennifer Hudson shuts the red carpet down at the Women Doing Good Awards in New York City. Her simple, fiery red draped mini is so sexy, and she’s got just the right amount of bling. Even though the Oscar winner hasn’t entirely given up on her scary-tall- platform heels, this time they don’t seem so heavy. The Woman looking good, indeed..

Red Carpet Meets Precious in Pink at the 2011 Emmy’s


Jayma Mays 2011 Emmy Awards

Jayma Mays 2011 Emmy Awards

When most of the starlets were glazing the red carpet in form hugging frocks, Jayma Mays made a statement in a beautiful  Zuhair Murad gown of delicate pink embroidered lace and layers of frothy tulle.The matching satin ribbon waist and clutch gives this look an elegant finish. The only thing that we would have changed, was her hair and lips. A paler shade of pink with a smokey eye and simple updo would have made this look perfection.

2011 Emmys Fashion Patrol


Nina Dobrev 2011 Emmys

Hands down, the best dressed winner of the evening. NoT since Julia Roberts has anyone looked so fabulous in a strapless red gown. Nina Dobrev left jaws dropping with a perfect combination of Hollywood glamor meets girl next door. I love the side swept waves and golden tan against the perfect shade of red. It’s not to blue and not to orange. With minimal yet well chosen jewelry and contrasting clutch it’s a look that will not only be remembered, it will set trends for the year to come.

Weigh in your opinion on who were your best dressed red carpet nominees for the 2011 Emmy’s.

Celebrity Fashion: Who Looks Better?


Halle Berry vs. Jennifer Garner

Drop-dead glamorous?! Last year, Halle Berry showed off her fabulous figure in this red Yves Saint Laurent single-shoulder goddess gown at the Carousel of Hope ball in Beverly Hills. The Oscar winner paired it with her signature pixie cut, a silver box clutch and diamond hoop earrings.

At the BAFTA Brits to Watch event, Jennifer Garner rocked the same gown in navy blue and added a little extra draping. Violet and Seraphina’s mom also accessorized with a silver box clutch, but wore drop earrings instead.

Both stars shut it down on the carpet, but which lady looks better? Vote below!

Hilary Swank vs. Evan Rachel Wood

Evan Rachel Wood ditched the gender-bending menswear she’s been rocking this summer and was all woman at the Emmys in a sparkling black Elie Saab gown. The actress paired it with a metallic cuff and Judith Leiber clutch, and styled her short ‘do in a glam, Old Hollywood-style Marcel wave. Gorgeous!

Back in June, Hilary Swank—who’s no stranger to gender-bending roles herself—shut it down on the Indian Film Academy Awards red carpet in the red version. Diamond drop earrings and a gold Judith Leiber clutch finished off her look.

Both actresses look drop-dead glamorous in this made-for-the-red-carpet confection, but which star does it better, Hil or ERW?

Chanel 2011 Fall Winter Paris Couture Collection Preview


Hello Truffles Girls,
It’s that time again and what better fashion review to do for fall than Chanel – The little black dress, the tweed suit, the quilted leather handbag, and the first-ever designer perfume—these are just some of Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel’s lasting contributions to fashion. Little did she know when she opened her small millinery shop in Paris in 1913 that she was laying the foundation for what would become one of the world’s most illustrious fashion houses in the world. Chanel quickly became the rage among upper-crust eager to don her modishly boyish dresses made of unfussy jersey.  In 1983, 12 years after Cocos passing, Karl Lagerfeld assumed creative control and the house was reborn into all its glory once again leaving us breathless year after year with fabulous creations that celebrate the magnificence of our iconic Coco.  So that brings us to the latest Chanel show for Fall 2011 in Paris. Lagerfeld recently acquired a full set of stills from 1927’s apocalyptic sci-fi classic Metropolis, signed by the film’s director Fritz Lang to its young star Brigitte Helm.  So I ask you, was it a sheer coincidence that there was a Metropolis feel to the set for his Paris Couture show? The backdrop for the presentation was right out of Lang’s mad scientist movie. The set was dark and glistening, like rain had just fallen. A perfect film noir atmosphere and Lagerfeld had the perfect script for it—Coco’s own life story- of coarse.. But, if the clothes themselves were any guide, he also wanted to preserve Coco’s mystery. The collection was dominated by shades of black, gray, and midnight blue with odd shots of fushia. Even when Lagerfeld used white, he defused it with a drizzle of dark beading or a shadowy veil or even a glittery black tank.  I was just crazy about the layered skirts that broke away from his usual slim knit silhouette. The rocker edged lace mixed with fingerless gloves and calf hugging boots. Karl may have cast a dark shadow over fall couture this year but he shows us that even dark times can be immensely seductive.

ASK JAX: How can I wear my print dresses in Fall?


ASK JAX: Dear Jax, I love wearing your print dresses but can never figure out how to wear them in fall. Can you recommend a way for me to wear my favorites for Fall? Cindy – NY (Submitted via ASK JAX)

Dear Cindy, Great question. I am a huge fan of leather jackets. At this point, I must have one in every shape and color. I recommend investing in a great fitted leather jacket that you can throw over any of your favorite print dresses. Black is always a solid investment, but don’t be afraid to buy a color. Pale silver, cream or tan will always be versatile over almost anything. Cropped jackets always work but if your dress is fitted, try a jacket with a longer length for a more fluid line. I love the look of a cinched waist jacket over a fitted dress. The tapering in the back makes you appear taller and thinner. Pair the look with some tall boots and you are ready to step out looking smashing as the season changes.  Xoxo, Jacqueline

Falling Over For Thigh Highs


It’s not surprising that as the weather turns cooler, our toes go searching for a- little more coverage. But just when you thought that last years ankle boots were terribly cute,  the grand master designers are looking to keep our legs warm as well as the boots go knee and thigh high. To what do we owe this shocking extreme? To Fashion of coarse.. In the words of Coco Chanel herself, “Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening. ” … And I will definitely be happening in a pair of these boots this year. 🙂 Check out my top 5 favorites for Fall 2011.

Roberto Cavalli 2012 Resort Trend Preview


Hello Truffles Girls,
I’m back with a beautiful runway collection that will surely inspire your fun, playful side. Famed fashion designer Roberto Cavalli shared his acid-toned print resort collection with us and I’m hear to bring you a sneek peak of what’s coming up for 2012. In case you haven’t seen the memo, influences from the 70’s and 80’s are back with multi coloured floral bouquet prints in monochromatic colors. Playful hues in lemon, lime, red, rose and royal left jaws dropping and some in tears. Tie-dye prints and acid washes on a wide variety of fabrics and skins, from chiffon and crepe de chine, to printed knits and  leathers set the mood for a collection with pieces for everyone. I also even saw a new and unusual leopard print. As if our eyes hadn’t had enough, hand painted ivory, red and black completed the show in true cavalla style demonstrating that a younger more casual approach was on his mind. For the jewelery, reflective fabric with crystals and pearls, created a new techno iridescence. Fine bone porcelain was used to make floral chokers and bracelets with hand painted gold leaf detailing further accentuated the floral motifs. The classic Cavalli serpent this time was made from tiny engraved gold flowers arranged to form the shape of the snake. So what can we take for our own personal style from the sneek peak of what’s to come? Well even if you tend to wear a lot of black, mixing in some of the beautiful colors by adding a bold top or skirt is what I recommend. If you are more fashion forward, definitely go for the print pants and don’t be afraid to play with romantic skirt lengths and flirty layers of ruffles as well. Lace touches are always a must have in any wardrobe any time of year and they are terrific layered under jackets and suits for fall and winter. As a rule, don’t mix to many different prints together but have fun mixing the new styles in with your wardrobe basics.

Living the Life of Celebrity Fashion


The world of celebrity and fashion continue to bring us the most glorious of fairy tale inspired parties filled with real life pixies and butterfly cocktails. We have a sneak peak of this months most beautiful and fashionable celebrations.

Hamishsphere: Natalia Vodianova's Fairy Tale Love Ball

Hamishsphere: Natalia Vodianova’s Fairy Tale Love Ball – Guests were bidden to wear white or silver, and while not everyone got the memo (Daphne Guinness wore McQueen’s vintage rainbow-painted kimono for Givenchy couture, with full kabuki hair), the effect suggested Tsarist Saint Petersburg, when ladies wore spangled white gowns for the balls during the city’s White Nights.

Valentino Garavani and Anne Hathaway

Valentino Garavani’s seventeenth-century Château de Wideville is a castle out of a fairy tale. After a long summer’s day at the stroke of ten, there lies a beautiful hill framed wonderland among alleys of immemorial trees forming curtains of green that suggest a magical forest beyond. Takes the breath away every time.

While some of us are fashion savvy, there are those who are to timid to take risks. A true fashionista can allow herself the freedom to step away from conformity. In diva style, celebrities are stepping out in belted gowns and cocktail dresses with contrasting trims. Here are some gorgeous ideas for your inner fashionista.

Style Star: Evan Rachel Woods Goes Hollywood Glam


Marilyn Manson’s ex flame and “True Blood” star, Evan Rachel Woods is making some fashion changes. We’ve seen her in chains, leather, even show girl inspired rhinestone nakedness. Now it looks like she’s reinvented herself in Hollywood style glam.

Evan Wood in Elie Saab

Evan Rachel Wood struts the red carpet in a Elie Saab Fall 2011 dress at the Mildred Pierce HBO miniseries premiere in New York City. Once again, I am seeing  old Hollywood glamor take over the runways. I personally adore the style and feel that it’s time to embrace not only a more glamorous look but a classic and timeless silhouette.

Sneak Peak: John Galliano Fall 2011 Paris


John Galliano Fall Winter 2011/2012 Paris

John Galliano Fall Winter 2011 Paris

A model on the catwalk in John Galliano during Paris Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2011 on March 6, 2011 in Paris, France. Even with his dismissal from Dior, his show was a success. The makeup was dramatic, the lips dark Bordeaux red and full. Hourglass silhouettes under cinched tweed jackets balanced with leather pencil skirts. Large hats and theatrical hairpieces.

OMG- I love this hat!
In a small collection of only 20 outfits, Galliano has made his mark. The tall shoes were accessorized with two sections of thick straps that really worked with the sexy daywear. When fur was used it was large and made a statement. While many designers are going back to the 60′s and 70′s Galliano took us way back to the 20′s and 30′s. Sheer halter neck gowns to the floor in plush hues. The looks reflected the lush opulence characteristic of John Galliano in his headier days—and struck a bitter note as this collection might be one of his last as he heads to rehab for a much needed recovery.

John Galliano Fall winter 2011

So my fashionistas. With all this amazing expensive couture- what does this teach us? Aside from this being grand eye candy, if you want to step out in style this coming fall, you’ll want to buy your fall pieces in couture color palettes, search for fun floppy petal like hats, cinch the waist of your coats, add some pencil skirts to your wardrobe and go for a strapping platform in your dress shoes. Day make-up is nude with a dramatic lip and for evening think 20’s glam.

“Be glamorous every single day and remember, It’s not just a look, It’s a lifestyle!”
