Emily Blunt’s WILD TARGET Clothes

Wednesday, December 22nd, 2010

emily blunt wild target clothes

After someone linked me to the YouTube Trailer for the movie “Wild Target” I took right to the clothes that Emily Blunt‘s character wears in the movie. Words to describe her style aesthetic would include: bright, cheeky, strong, eclectic and fun.

I’m interrupting our She’s Smart hiatus to show you these inspirational photos. The outfits tend to mix a busy print (or two) with a strong solid from a primary color. She wears a lot of strong red, blue and yellow. There are elements of style in bows (on the gloves), layered pearls, fringe, draped scarves, berets, black tights, cuff bracelets, studded jackets, and handmade-looking jewelry.

The costume designer for “Wild Target” was Sheena Napier who has worked on many UK based films and TV series like “EastEnders” and the “Miss Marple” mini-series movies.

InStyle pointed out that in one scene the character (photo above) wears a Vivienne Westwood dress and Yaffa Meskell necklace.You can also spot some blue eyeliner that is very funky and fun.

Taylor Swift wore a very pretty sparkly Collette Dinnigan dress at the AMA’s, didn’t you love it? Her hair was super straight and long, working with this ultra “sexy” theme. (She also had brand new bangs.)

Tay loves sparkly dresses and is often wearing one at parties or during a performance. Sparkly dresses are absolutely perfect for the holiday season, or even for prom if you want (and are allowed) a sexy dress. I know people always want to know about Taylor Swift dresses for prom.

I found these sparkly dresses that remind me of Taylor Swift dresses:

Covert Affairs Clothes: Zipper Leggings on Annie Walker

Monday, November 15th, 2010


I love this Covert Affairs poster of Piper Perabo as Annie Walker. In it, she sports really kicky zipper leggings. They’ve actually become quite popular. Put some Covert Affairs fashion into you wardrobe with a pair, okay? Yes, do it! Don’t be afraid! It’ll let you show off a really great pair of shoes. And we all know that Annie’s Covert Affairs shoes are very wonderful.

Copy Covert Affairs clothes and clothes with some zipper leggings:

Rachel Zoe Fashion Advice on Being Chic, Easily

Saturday, September 18th, 2010

rachel zoe fashion tips

Rachel Zoe recently said on an episode of The Rachel Zoe Project, “Nothing looks more chic than when when you wear black with a pop of bright color.” I think that is the exact quote.She said this while at the 2010 Gucci fashion show in Milan, I believe.

Rachel Zoe takes her own fashion advice. She's all in black with a hot pink clutch!

Anyway, what do you think? Will you try the style out? All black and then one bright, committed color for one item? It could be your earrings, skirt, top, tights, or bag. Or even a colorful wig, I suppose! It really is a chic look.

Nina Dobrev Style Guide: Front Zipper Skirt

Thursday, September 16th, 2010

nina dobrev style guide

Nina Dobrev of The Vampire Diaries was recently interviewed (and did a photoshoot) for Saturday Night Magazine. In the above photo, Nina is wearing a front zipper skirt in black from Charlotte Ronson. I found a ton of zippered skirts – all similar. Some are steals for only $20, other are major splurges. I just wanted to show them all off to you guys. I think a front zipper skirt is a majorly fun item to wear this fall. (But I also think that making s’mores in the microwave is fun.)

Make sure to check out our first Nina Dobrev post: How to Dress Like Nina Dobrev in The Vampire Diaries

For photoshoots, there’s always a ton of clothing to pick from. A stylist will help, but usually a celebrity has say in what they end up wearing. So it stands to reason that Miss Nina Dobrev really did like this front zipper skirt – and why not? It’ ... Read More

How to Make Your Face Glow with Makeup like Christina Aguilera

Tuesday, September 7th, 2010

christina aguilera royal desire

So, Javier Cámara posted two pictures of Christina Aguilera in what I think might be a promo for her new perfume (Royal Desire – ack!) They’re very pretty, and the thing that strikes me the most is how luminescent the photos are shot. Her skin looks like it’s glowing from under the surface. Obviously, you can’t really achieve that look without the help of Photoshop and professional lighting…


There are a couple beauty products that I think work to help make your skin look more vibrant and … not shiny as in oily, but as if lit by the moon.

Vintage Inspired Wedding Jewelry and Black Tulle Dresses

Monday, September 6th, 2010

wedding pearl jewelry

I was introduced to the jewelry shop SmoochyAngels and while they seem to specialize in rings (I’m a major fan of this Mother of Pearl Teardrop Ring), I was immediately drawn to The Pearly Queen collection. I’d describe it with these words: Victorian, Princess, Royal, and Mermaid. It’s vintage inspired wedding jewelry that’s got a lovely, slightly modern edge.

I think these would be especially perfect for wedding jewelry. What’s nice is that I think you could easily wear these outside of your wedding day.
