Reinspired! The Nicole Kidman Moulin Rouge Dresses for Halloween

Friday, October 22nd, 2010

moulin rouge dresses

Because this is a fashion and shopping blog, it may not come as a SHOCK to you that one of the things I especially enjoy in Baz Luhrmann‘s Moulin Rouge is the fashion!

When I had a chance to review Moulin Rouge on Blu ray, I was inspired all over again! It’s a timeless and classic movie – especially for those who grew up watching it as teens. The Blu-ray version makes everything better, the pictures, the songs, everything. It’s almost as good as seeing it in the theater again!

From the press release:

Life Unexpected Style: Lux at School

life unexpected style

It was hard to find the right dress for this Life Unexpected Lux Style Feature. I picked a dress from Mod Cloth, since I figure Lux would realistically shop there.  Aside from what I linked below, you might like this blue ruffled dress. I ended up picking three Modcloth dresses.

To complete this look, have some tousled, messy hair and wear a long pendant necklace and some knee-high boots.

In Gossip Girl “The Undergraduates” Blair and Serena are both seen in pajamas – silky robes, to be exact. Blair’s robe is from Ligne de Soie, as is Serena’s robe. But they are from different collections.

Blair Waldorf (Leighton Meester) wears the Chinois Single Layer Silk Kimono from The Vintage Collection. This is a black and white floral robe with red belt. There is never anything too simple about Blair Waldorf pajamas, you know?

Serena van der Woodsen (Blake Lively) wears the Blancs de Noir Silk Robe from the Classic Collection. This is a classic white silky robe. For Serena van der Woodsen style, this is a simple, sexy and luxurious item.

In Gossip Girl “Touch of Eva” Blair Waldorf (Leighton Meester) wears a beautiful Reem Acra dress. It is from the Ready to Wear Spring 2010 collection.

Undercovers Fashion: Dress like Samantha Bloom

Friday, October 1st, 2010

undercovers clothing

Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Samantha Bloom on the new NBC show Undercovers. As a sexy spy, what do you suppose she wears? (Did you see Gugu Mbatha-Raw at The Emmy’s? She looked GORGEOUS, seriously!) Undercovers fashion for Samantha Bloom will be polished, professional, sleek, tailored and sexy. We’ll definietly be seeing some form-fitting stuff. She wears everything from dresses, suits, and leather jackets.

If you want to strut your stuff like a spy, we have you covered (pun!)

I found a great black dress with the same necklace for under $100. And for shoes, I tried to match her great black platforms with the rounded toe. In most pictures, Samantha is wearing a small watch with a black band. I finally found one that I liked by Armitron.

Something else I see Samantha wearing a lot are round diamond studs. Well, you can get cheap cz studs anywhere, so I tried to find an affordable pair of real diamond studs. I found some on sale for just $99, down from $285.

Dress like Serena van der Woodsen (Gossip Girl season 4)

gossip girl fashion

It’s hard to resist Gossip Girl fashion, it’s always so perfect. Blake Lively plays Serena van der Woodsen, and in an upcoming Gossip Girl episode she’s wearing a wonderful Diane von Furstenberg dress. I found that same one, and have it linked for you here. But I found less expensive options for the boots, bracelet and bag. Her actual booties are by Pierre Hardy and her actual bag is by Nancy Gonzalez (3k!) I’ve also included a belt, as Serena does belt her dress to give her waist some definition. I kept the booties closed-toed, because it’s getting too cold for open-toed booties. Dress like Serena van der Woodsen with the following elements…
