The Style Files: We Can Make it Right, Hit the City Lights


Last weekend, my friends and I had a mini Michael Jackson tribute. Ever since then, I can't stop listening to "P.Y.T." I couldn't tell you why I'm obsessed with this song, but I am. Michael Jackson will always be the King of Pop.


STYLE-SPIRATION: NICOLE RICHIE
Say what you will about her, but I love Nicole Richie. She was hilarious on The Simple Life- I almost forgot about that show- and has made an incredible transformation from a sloppy mess, no offense, to a hip fashionista. This is what Lifetime movies are made out of, people! For this edition, I thought it'd be super fun to chronicle her amazing metamorphosis. 

2003: This is borderline painful. First of all, that hemline? WAY TOO SHORT. I'm all for a punk-inspired shoe, but with this outfit? A major STYLE DON'T. I don't like how monochromatic the scarf-slash-dress situation is. And that bag? This is actually tragic. (Photo Cred)

At the Maxim Hot 100 Party in 2005: Clearly, this was the start of  "Scary-Thin" Richie; however, the styling of this look is a huge improvement. Obviously, this was the era of Richie and Zoe. The silhouette, though plain, is more ladylike than that situation Richie previously wore. The fierce snakeskin shoe acts as a neutral, which is fabulous. Her hair and makeup gives her an approachable vibe. Kind of plain, though. (Photo Cred)


At the Charlotte Ronson RTW Fall 2006 Show: This look is okay. She attempts rocking funky accessories; however, the look is still a little primitive. This look would be a million times better if she stuck to black.  For the record, I wanted the Fendi Spy Bag SO bad when I was younger. (Photo Cred)


2008: Ugh, so stellar! The print is so bohemian; however, the black and white color combination makes this dress ladylike at the same time. The summery cutouts and the empire waist flatter her body by giving her a little more shape. Also, the gold accessories are the perfect way to spice up a black and white look. (Photo Cred)



At the 2010 MET Ball (Marc Jacobs): Love this look so much! Although the silhouette is simple, the sparkle of the  dress really gives this look a "wow" factor. Keeping the accessories simple was incredibly smart of her.  And the long locks gives this look the quintessential Nicole Richie boho-chic flair!  (Photo Cred)


 2011- At a Sephora/ Charlotte Ronson Event (A Solid Mix of McQueen, Kate Winter, Louboutin, and House of Harlow): While this look doesn't really portray her boho chic aesthetic, I think it proves that she's really changed. The sleek ponytail and the strong lines on the coat makes this look modern while the bag- I'm obsessed with that bag- creates juxtaposition, which I love. I also love how Richie wears things from her own line. If they're cool enough for Nicole Richie, who wouldn't want to purchase those pieces?




Well, that was lengthy. Onto the Anti-Weekly!


THE ANTI-WEEKLY
Oh yes, ladies and gent, the Anti-Weekly is back! While there were some fabulous looks from this week, there were other looks that really rubbed me the wrong way. Since I'm a sassy one, an Anti-Weekly was an obvious decision.
  • Leighton Meester at the Jimmy Choo Icon Collection Launch (Jason Wu): This is so hideous, it makes me feel uncomfortable. First of all, her hair looks like a TERRIBLE wig. I love Leighton Meester, but she needs to fix that horrible hair. And what's with the sheer blouse? Sure, sometimes showing your bra is appropriate: frat parties, strip clubs, Vegas, etc.  This is not one of those times. Nothing says unsexy more than a blouse and mid-thigh skirt. I think she was trying to pull off the sexy librarian look, but failed miserably. And those shoes? They don't even work with this look! Just horrible.
  • Jennifer Aniston at the Elle Women Tribute in LA (Kaufman Franco): I'm totally "Team Jen;" however, this dress makes her look like a sagging Hollywood has-been. She's so beautiful and this dress doesn't do her justice: she's trying too hard! A nice sheath, straightened hair, and a killer accessory would have been sufficient. In my opinion, this is unflattering- look at the midsection- and disgusting.
