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.

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…

Do you love Lux Cassidy (Britt Robertson) on Life Unexpected? Sometimes she seriously annoys me, but she has that hip Seattle style down pat!I love her Life Unexpected clothes a lot.
Whoever is the costume designer to pick the Life Unexpected clothing items for Lux is very smart and considerate. Lux’s outfits are both covetable and look affordable, even if you don’t use exact clothing matches.
What Lux does is layer a ton of things. Harness Lux’s look with a few key style elements. She isn’t a sloppy dresser, but she dresses to look casual for the cool Portland atmosphere. Here, she’s layered a funky tank under an off the shoulder shirt, and layered a long pendant necklace over that. She’s got her ever-present knit beret on, a large messenger bag, and dark denim jeans. While we can’t see them in this picture, I’d bet she’s also wearing her large hoops. Wear some light lip gloss for the full effect.

Go Parisian with Blair Waldorf’s (Leighton Meester) style choice for her trip. Here, we see her wearing a white dress with large black (or are they navy?) polka dots. The dress I found (for less) has a romantic edge to it because doesn’t just cling to the body, it has ruffles and layers. You might also consider this Tahari Dress, this Polka Dot Puff Sleeve Top, or this Silk Blouse.
I’m not sure Blair would wear these heels if she knew they were by Steve Madden, but I loved the rich look they give, so I included them. The Jessica McClintock purse I do like, although now I think that’s not the b ... Read More
Ever wanted to dress like Sarah Walker (Yvonne Strahovski) from Chuck? It’s a great Halloween costume idea!
I greatly preferred Sarah’s first cover job at The Weinerlicious. Yogurt, Yogurt (Orange, Orange?) was just not as fun! I found a couple costumes (most of them are so tacky/hoochie that I passed them up), and then just some elements you can put together for her awesome outfit. It has a white peasant blouse, ideally with short cap sleeves and the ability to show some cleavage. Then there’s a black corset belt deal. You could just cut off the bottom of a black t-shirt to improvise. Then there’s the red skirt. You want it to be kind of fluffy, so use a tulle skirt under if you have just a red skirt. I found a ton of different red skirts that might work for you.
As for shoes, she wore black flats (the better to pummel badguys in!) with elastic straps. Her hair was always in pigtails – anchored at the middle of the back of her head, and back/out, not just from the side of her head. Oh, and I included a hotdog necklace! And you can make the nametag, and carry a water or foam dart gun!
For Sarah’s makeup, focus on her dark eyebrows and some black mascara.

The red ruffle dress Blair Waldorf (Leighton Meester) wears on Gossip Girl in Paris is by Oscar de la Renta. But, since getting that dress is both impossible and impractical, I went looking for something more wearable for your average gal. What I found was a modern red dress with ruffle detailing for under $30. More than reasonable. And it’s of European design! Dress like Blair Waldorf for less, it might not be so hard.
Blair also wears a necklace. Something sparkly will do. But with this dress’s neckline, the exact similar sort of circular necklace wouldn’t look right.
In her hand, Blair has a long purple clutch. I know that red and purple can look fun together, but DEAR GOD why did she have this purple clutch? It should be black or oh God, any other color. I’d take blue or yellow or anything else. I think the problem is that it’s not even purple. It’s a magenta – not quite a pink. It just clashes. I refused to do purple, and gave you a cool red clutch instead. (She’s also wearing flip flops. Since ... Read More
