The Style Files: 'Cause You Moved to West LA, New York, or Santa Fe

I really do love Train. This band's music is always really epic or just super fun. Their latest song, Drive By, is really upbeat and always makes me want to bop.

Style Spiration: The Olsen Twins
Ever since my beyond amazing New York Fashion Week experience this season- more on in an upcoming blog post- I've become obsessed with the Olsen Twins. They exude innovation and style, which I admire so much. Also, they've really transformed from boho chic into sharp dressers; yet, they still maintain their own personal style. It's a very complex formula, but they always perfect it. I find it incredible that they've evolved from being those cute kids on Full House to true staples in the industry. 
At the debut of their Hollywood Star: Although they're notorious for dressing "granny chic" (who isn't every now and then?), I think that both Mary Kate and  Ashley have a knack for dressing age appropriate whilst looking undeniably chic. Let's look at Ashley's outfit (is that Ashley? I couldn't tell you) as an example, shall we? That purple haltered dress screams fun-loving. Pairing the dress with the uber luxe dangling earrings? So fabulous and dresses this look up. This already awesome look is finished up with that navy heel. So fashion forward.(Photo Cred)

At Spring 2012 RTW in New York: Usually, wearing sunglasses during a show is so silly...unless you're Anna Wintour. Even still, it's a little silly. Regardless,  this dolled up duo pulled off this look in a way that didn't bother me. The monochromatic look is still fun because they both mix strong separates that stay true to their personal style.  The light lip and wavy hair makes this look fresh and not snobby. (Photo Cred)
In Chanel: What I love about Mary Kate and Ashley's style is how they both dress as individuals; however, their looks are always cohesive with the other's. These two ensembles are so different, but they complement each other instead of clash. The disheveled hair ties the two looks together. I should also take this time to mention that I'm mildly obsessed with that black Chanel dress.   (Photo Cred)

Their looks from the 2009 Met Ball perfectly portrays their fashion success. They both know to have fun with fashion and pick beautiful pieces. The simplicity of Ashley's white dress complements all of the fripperies in Mary Kate's Lacroix dress. Also, Ashley's earrings as well as the silver back chain works well with the silver Lacroix. Perfection.

The Weekly
  • Dakokta Fanning at Proenza Schouler AW 2012 (Proenza Schouler): This look is revolutionary for Dakota Fanning: it really shows us that she's a woman and a force to be reckoned with. The sharp construction of this sheath dress is super powerful, while the bright florals makes it not as threatening. The chunky black shoes work so well with the solid black sleeves. But the slightly undone hair shows us that she's still willing to have fun with her fashion choices.
  • Jennifer Aniston at the Wanderlust premiere in LA (Tom Ford): This is such a crucial fashion moment for Jennifer Aniston. She always wears the same sexy, short dress so this was a huge change. Leather trim? Peplum?  Chevron? Incredible. She keeps this standout piece simple by rocking black shoes and straight hair. A major improvement.
  • Blake Lively at the Noon by Noor Presentation (Noor): Blake Lively's been all about clean and fashion-forward silhouettes lately. I kind of love it. The innovation of a tuxedo dress works perfectly with the crisp black and white color combination. The pink lip gives an appropriate amount of color, while the metallic shoe makes this look funky and shows off her personal style.
  • Lea Seydoux at the Berlin Film Festival (Elie Saab): I think sometimes people don't take me seriously when I say that a look took my breath away. But I am serious, for the record. Exhibit A? This dress. Everything about this look is so reminiscent about the 1970's and Cher. The long hair? The long sleeves? The dramatic, yet ethereal lace? The gold hoops? Perfectly simple and beautifully styled.
