Welcome, welcome to our second edition of the She’s Smart Virtual Closet Series. This time we talked to April Smith, of the musical act April Smith and The Great Picture Show. Their song “Terrible Things” is featured in the Weeds season 6 promo.
How would you define your sense of style?
I have a very costume-y style…big skirts, feathers, heels. A little cabaret, a little Victorian…a mix of old styles.
I love to go to Beacon’s Closet and Stella Dallas in Williamsburg. Vintage shops are always a good bet.
What are the strongest themes that run through your wardrobe?
Tutus and great shoes…those are the staples.
How organized is your closet?
All of my dresses have their own rack…it’s getting out of cont ... Read More
We loved Kristen Bell‘s hairstyle at the recent “The Darker Side of Green” event. It’s a mixture of French braiding, regular braiding, and pigtails. But the most important thing to remember is that it’s a fun, slightly-messy look. So, it’s okay if you mess it up, or it looks different on you. What you’ll need are some bobby pins, elastic hair wraps, and hair spray.
How to achieve this look: Part your hair, and grab 1/3 of this hair from the crown and begin braiding it. Stop when you get down to above the nape of your neck, and incorporate it into a larger braid, anchoring both braids to the side of your neck. Use the elastic band at the end of this braid. Bo back with bobby pins to secure both braids, and also take your loose hair and twirl it loosly around your face, securing with a pin.

Gwyneth Paltrow on the cover of Vogue / Ph: VOGUE
What happens when you take the uber posh Gwyneth Paltrow and get her to look a little less polished? It makes her look stunning. Seriously, check out the Vogue Cover above. The royal blue dress is complimented by minimal makeup, pink lips, unfussy hair, and only one summer white accessory.This is easily a look you can copy for your everyday use. And it works super great if you happen to have blue eyes like Gwyneth.
The royal blue reminds us of the ocean, and somehow this entire look seems very Nautical without being super on theme.
Make sure the dress is slinky and not too form-fitting or uncomfortable. If it has a bit of shine, that will lend to the effect of being a water goddess. And who doesn’t want to be one of those?
Jessica Biel on the cover of Glamour UK
Jessica Biel graces the cover of Glamour UK’s cover for August 2010. She wears a nude tank top with ostrich skirt that is belted to divide the feathers. (It is possible this is a dress, not two pieces.)
“I’m not a perfect person who doesn’t mess up, eat bad, not work out–I do all those things,” Biel tells Glamour UK. “When I’m working and I eat healthily all week, I then give myself one day–usually Sunday–when I just eat what I want. You have to, otherwise your mind goes a little nutso.” – Jessica Biel, Glamour UK August 2010
Dakota Fanning on the cover of Marie Claire
Dakota Fanning is the Cover Girl for Marie Claire this August. She looks grown up, and her words are backing her up on that fact.
“When you start out young, people get really attached to who you are at 6 years old. I hope that The Runaways was kind of a moment to be like, ‘You know, I’m not that young little girl anymore, but I’m still not all grown up, either.” – Dakota Fanning, Marie Claire 2010
Want to dress like Annie Walker on Covert Affairs? We’ve got you covered with a simple style trick.
Piper Perabo‘s character, Annie, wears this royal blue blouse under a navy (black?) pant suit. It provides a nice POP of color to make your normal work outfits feel a bit more fun and fashionable.
If you’re drawn to this, look for deep v-necks, draping, fabrics like satin if you’re trying to be professional and dressing-up, or if you work in a more relaxed environment try layering a funky vest or blazer over the jersey option.
The style trick, if you haven’t figured it out: Invest in funky (patterned or brightly colored) blouses to wear under/with your standard, practical work attire basics.
Did you love the dress that Anne Dudek wore as “Danielle” on Covert Affairs? You’re not alone! Lots of people have expressed love for this dress. So let’s get you into it!
We’ve found several options that reflect the same aesthetic of this dress. If you like this dress, you’re drawn to shirt dresses, or wrap dresses with a graphic print. Searching for black and white striped dresses usually gives you casual, thin-striped options. But this is much more elegant, so we searched for elements like “silk” or “cocktail”. It’s a traditional, subtly sexy dress that uses colorblocking to slim the figure.
The costume designer for Pretty Little Liars, Madeline Line recently gave an interview with Zap2It. Line said that Aria Montgomery (Lucy Hale) dresses very eclectically, and most of her stuff ends up being one-of-a-kind.

“What I do with her is some high-end (clothes). Jewelry is flea markets, old Doc Martens I have painted on. She has a lot of high-end vintage: old Marc Jacobs, Ralph Lauren and old Vivienne Westwood.”
“She is vintage eclectic, very tactile. Everythi ... Read More
I’m so late on board to the True Blood train, but as I go back I can remind you of some of the best Sookie Stackhouse dresses and styles. For instance, early on in season 1, she wears a red and white floral dress with an a-line skirt, and sweetheart neckline. I loved it, and I can tell lot of other people online have loved it as well.
Luckily, it’s not just a fly-by-the moment trend. It’ll always work. So here are some ideas to get you going. I’ve included a couple footwear options. Her hair was styled to be silky and slightly curled under – with a super thin white headband worn. No jewelry here, but there was a shiny red purse.... Read More
