How to Dress like Serena van der Woodsen in Gossip Girl season 4

Go on and dress like Serena Van der Woodsen

Go on and dress like Serena van der Woodsen

Translating a future Gossip Girl look from Serena’s life to yours took a bit of thinking. In Gossip Girl season 4, we’ll find Serena van der Woodsen in Paris. This juxtaposition of a designer gold cage dress over a white dress, paired with a gray linen blazer and fedora are nice, but hard to make work unless you have that exact dress. (Gold dresses, in general, are pretty tacky unless done right.) So, we’ve re-envisioned this look for you. Since it’s summertime, we suggest you get this gold and white layered look with a stylish gold bikini and a sexy white cover-up. For accessories, pile on gold bracelets, gold cuffs, and gold bangles.

How to dress like Rizzoli & Isles

rizzoli and isles style

Rizzoli & Isles is a new TNT series which I was able to watch and review before it aired on TV. It’s a great series which is based on novels. One thing is for sure, these women have style. Maura Isles is my favorite, and I especially love that she owns a pet tortoise!

In our latest Dress Like a TV Character feature, we bring you…Rizzoli & Isles!

How to dress like Spy-tastic Annie Walker from Covert Affairs

Thursday, July 1st, 2010

dress like annie walker covert affairs

In the new USA Network show Covert Affairs, Piper Perabo plays Annie Walker. She’s a spy with a definite sense of style (she owns a pair of Louboutins!) Because this is one of my new shows, I had to do a feature for Annie. I reviewed the pilot of this series before it was on TV, so make sure to see why I love it so much.

(I also got to chat with actor Peter Gallagher in a conference call, and when we were on twitter I even asked him about Center Stage – which is a great 90’s movie. Soon, I’ll be talking with Piper Perabo and Christopher Gorham – let me know if you have questions for them about their new show!)

Get Sookie Stackhouse Makeup and Hair for season 3 of True Blood

Friday, June 25th, 2010

sookie stackhouse makeup

I really love the makeup look that Sookie Stackhouse has in the True Blood season 2 promo picture. So, how can you get it? I suggest using a mineral makeup to give your face a flawless and luminescent look. You can use high-up brands for mineral foundation like Bare Minerals, or L’Oreal even makes a pretty decent mineral foundation. She’s not wearing too much blush, but I’d pop a little pinky-peachy blush on the apples of your cheeks – just not too much.

The most intriguing parts are her lips – which have this plummy look to them. It’s matte, not super shiny. But do whatever works for you.I suggested two different MAC lipsticks because they will truly give your look that stained look. As for her eyes – oh man. Her eyes are insane! Obviously, wear a little Mascara especially if you are a blonde. But…any Mascara will work. What I see is that she’s got grey eyes. So I selected a cream color base to give your eyelids a soft and pretty wash to work on. Then line your eyes with a grey liner, you can go softer or more metallic in tone here. And you can keep it very precise or smudge it a bit. I prefer to use precise eyeliners and then use a matching-color eyeshadow to go over it. It makes the eyeliner stay on longer, and it looks softer without having to smudge it with a smudge stick. As for the eyeshadow, I really like the Mac eyeshadow in Print.

Her nails and toenails have a peachy/nude/slightly pearly look to them. Don’t forget ... Read More

How to Dress like Sookie Stackhouse in True Blood season 3

dress like sookie on true blood

Are you a Trubie? True Blood fan? I love the character promo’s that HBO put out for True Blood season 2. The Sookie Stackhouse promo picture has her in this gorgeous white ensemble (I believe it’s white and the photo makes it look more like a flaxen, off-white).

I couldn’t find an off the shoulder white peasant dress that I really liked, so I looked for off the shoulder white peasant blouses and then white summer skirts that would pair well. She’s also wearing a pair of subtle earrings, so I looked for something that would work well. Tomorrow I’ll show you how to achieve Anna Paquin‘s makeup look from this picture. And then later on this month we’re giving you a GIANT post about Jessica Hamby’s style on True Blood. (Although getting Deborah Ann Woll’s haircolor is strictly up to you.)

Time to make the Lea Michele 2010 Tony Awards look our own!

lea michele: tony awards

Lea Michele wore a marigold (bright yellow-orange) Zac Posen strapless gown at the Tony Awards this year. How can we be inspired by her red carpet look for our everyday lives?

Lea paired her marigold look with some intense lipstick in a reddish hue. As for her jewelry it was by Tiffany’s. I love her silver and diamond X shaped earrings. She wore a ring, and had a sparkly clutch and silver open toe pumps. Little touches of glamor were great when paired with the playful colors.
