Style Files: And We Will Float Above the Rift

Everyone has a mojo-less week every now and then. The Shins' "Simple Song" is my personal  musical medication for a mojo-less week. Maybe it's the beat or maybe the lyrics, but I'm loving it. Alright, enough with this potentially depressing introduction, le's get right into the action, shall we?

The Style Files: Demi Moore
Unless you've been living under a celebrity-gossip rock, you'll know about Demi Moore's terrifying rush to the hospital. I listened to the 911 call a couple of days ago and it was so scary. To show my support for Team Demi, this style-spiration goes out to her. I love Demi's style- even pre-Rachel Zoe- because she dresses for her age. At the same time, Demi also allows her clothes to show off her timeless beauty. 

At the 2009 Freedom Awards (Lanvin): This look is both simple and fashion-forward. Not only is the Grecian dress to die for, literally, but it's styled beautifully. The bold statement necklace plus the chained heels? To good for words: the chains in the statement necklace works perfectly with the bold shoes. The down- do makes this looks relaxed.   (Photo Cred)

At the 2010 (Versace): This blush tone looks absolutely incredible with her skin ton. The ruffles  are so stunning, which prevents Demi from being washed out. The silver jewel also perfectly complements the monochromatic look. The super elegant hair counteracts the complexity of this dress. Divine. (Photo Cred)
At the No Strings Attached Premiere (Carven): I love this alternative spin on a LBD and it is fabulously styled. The black heels and sophisticated hair looks awesome with the futuristic zipper. The hem-length is modest, but still shows her killer bod. .(Photo Cred)
At the GI Jane Premiere in 1997: This look is so timeless I'm obsessed. The cut and silhouette is so flattering and this look's simplicity allows her inner beauty to shine through.  She could even wear this dress today- but shouldn't because it'd be awkward to bring it back- and it'd be stellar. (Photo Cred)
At the 1997 Oscars: Can we say a precursor to Spring 2011 RTW Armani Prive? The silhouette is so fabulous and I love the shimmer. The minimal jewels allows the main focus to be on this dress. Beautfiul (Photo Cred)

The Weekly
  • Kate Moss at the 24 Hours Prada Museum: I'm a sucker for fur and Kate Moss always rocks fur perfectly. She's capable of making fur look young and hip, which is what we should all aspire to do with our fur. There's something about the two-toned dress that makes this fur work better with this look. At the wavy hair? The perfect finishing touch. 
  • Blake Lively at the Jason Wu for Target launch (Jason Wu): Two of my favorite fashion fanatics rolled into one look? Incredible. I love how Blake kept this look rather simple with minimal jewels and elegant hair. Peplums are so big right now and in this case, it definitely spices up a traditional black and white look. So does the subtle printed heels. 
  • Katherine Heigl at the One for the Money premiere in New York (Herve. L Leroux); Lady in red! This dress is so flattering on her and makes her look like a timeless movie star. Although she didn't incorporate a lot of jewels, the asymmetrical dress ads the perfect amount of drama to this look.
  • Angelina Jolie at the Producers' Guild Awards (Michael Kors): This is such a major fashion moment. I love lace, as most of you should know by now. The combination of lace sleeves and a high slit makes this look fashion-forward and age appropriate. I'm glad she kept this look monochromatic: this look wouldn't be classic with a pop of color.

So ladies and gent, the SAG awards are on tonight! I'm so excited to watch them and report back right here.  Unlike the Golden Globes, I'm thinking column silhouettes , fun prints, and pops of color. On the beauty front, I'm also hoping for stellar cat eyes or a fabulous lip. What are your fashion predictions?
