I'm deciding to create a new rule for the Weeklies.
Instead of writing about random things, I will devote each writing piece before the weekly to a celebrity's style that I'm totally digging that week. Sound like fun? Obviously.
Instead of calling my Sunday posts "The Weekly," I will now be calling these posts "The Style Files."
"The Style Files" will consist of "Style-Spiration" and the good 'ol Weeklies.
So to get this started, I'm focusing on my number one girl, Beyonce.
Beyonce has been a core inspiration this week. On Monday, I was cruising around town when I heard this new song called "The Best Thing I Never Had." Like many songs this summer, Beyonce's song spoke to me. I always admire her independence and strength in every thing she does; she always inspires me to be strong and self- sufficient, even if I'm listening to "Freakum Dress."
Fast forward to Friday: I was on the elliptical at the gym , watching Beyonce's Good Morning America concert. Even though I was a sweaty mess, her voice and confidence gave me goosebumps all over my body. I wish I was her; but let's be honest with ourselves, who doesn't? Basically everyone I meet loves Beyonce. And the people who don't are just jealous. I think one of the reasons everyone loves her is because she is completely confident when she wears great costumers and always looks like a superstar. If anything, Beyonce should be an inspiration to all of us: we should all be confident in whatever we have on. Let me break it down for you:
That's not to say that Beyonce is always topping every single "Best Dressed" list. She seems perfect, but she even has her flaws. But her confidence and overall diva stature makes her this week's Style-spiration.

So, my lovely readers, the next time you have a wardrobe change, bring out your inner Sasha Fierce.
ONTO THE WEEKLY!
- Rachel Bilson shopping in Beverly Hills (some conglomerate of clothing): This is such amazing street style: the cutoffs and the booties are edgy, yet the blazer is very polished. And the braid and sunnies are insta-effortless-chic. Unlike the other looks I gush over in The Weeklies, I like this look because it's attainable. This is a really short analysis, but it's a very simple look.
- Hilary Swank at the International Indian Film Academy (Elie Saab): Oh my god. This is such a home-run (I don't know when I became sporty,either). I love anything that sparkles and this dress has quite a lot of sparkle. I'm literally obsessed with this silhouette: fishtail and the portrait neckline, classic fashion that everyone loves. The beautiful red is perfection with her complexion: bold enough so it pops but nothing too abrasive. While I'm not totally loving the bracelet, the drop earrings with this Saab dress is supreme. And her hair and makeup makes the prime focus on the dress. A+, Ms. Swank, A+.
- Rose Huntington-Whiteley at the Transformers: Dark of the Moon Premiere (Antonio Berardi): Let's just get this out on the table: doesn't this look totally remind you of Jessica Rabbit? Anyways, she absolutely killed, in a good way, this look. I love the shimmer on this red dress and the slit is so sultry and perfect for the summer! If I had to wear a full-length dress, I'd be pretty sweaty. So smart move, Rose. I don't like the necklace, I think that a industrial statement piece would've been better with this dress, but I do love the soft waves and feminine makeup. Va Va Vroom! Oh, and the nude heels ? Awesome choice, as always. I feel like I usually see nude heels in a rounded toe or peep-toe, my sister actually just bought a pair of nude peep-toes, so the pointed toe gives it some edge. Basically, I really want this dress.
