The Style Files: Hearing Those Words it Makes Me Weak

For my friends and me, this week was all about "Lips of an Angel." While there's no rhyme or reason for loving Hinder's song this week, you have to admit that this song is pretty stellar.

Style Spiration: Zoë  Kravitz 
Let's face it, Zoë Kravitz is one of the coolest girls out there. Not only is she everywhere, but she's been the face of Vera Wang fragrances. And if Vera Wang thinks you're cool, you are cool. This week, how about we focus on Zoë's refreshing and show-stopping style?

I'm not going to lie to you: her street style is awfully quirky and kind of reminiscent of your grandma's closet. However, I always give a quirky dresser major kudos for creating their very own look.  The clashing patterns adds this certain carefree je ne sais quoi that every stylista should appreciate.(Photo Cred)
Kravitz rocked this look to the 2011 UNICEF Snowflake Ball. Can we say "phenomenal"? The medieval-inspired collar and shoulders are beautifully executed while the feathered skirt is progressive. However, the black and white color combination makes this look mildly refined. (Photo Cred)

Rocking an ethereal handband is definitely on my fashion bucket list. Enough said.(Photo Cred)
Mullet hemlines are all the rage lately. Kravitz totally rocked this at the 2011 Grammy Awards before it was even cool. Fashion hipster status. The subtle metallic color, mixed with the retro-inspired print, looks amazing with the muted taupe platform. Her hair and makeup is absolutely flawless. For a super relaxed look, Kravitz said '"no thank you" to adding jewels. (Photo Cred)

I love this look at she rocked at Chanel's 2008/2009 Cruise Show. The proper black and white jacket, as well as her pumps, upholds the Chanel aesthetic. But don't write this look off as "typical Chanel" just yet. The turquoise clutch and the androgynous jumper adds that necessary personal style. Brava! (Photo Cred)

The Weekly
  • Penelope Cruz are the To Rome with Love premiere (Pucci): Whenever you  hear the term "sexy slit," you instantly think of a dress like Angelina Jolie's, right? As Cruz shows us  with this look, a slit on a shorter dress can be chic. The off-the-shoulder straps add that dash of old school glamour to this unconventional slit. The messy updo allows us to focus on how eternal this dress is.
  • Scarlett Johansson at The Avengers premiere (Versace): I guess LBDs were all the rage this week. Between the forward-thinking neck to the dainty peplum, this Versace is fierce and feminine at the same time. The modern bouffant, mixed with the super light lip, gives this look a classic touch while the patent leather sandals are uber sexy.
  • Emily Blunt at the Salmon Fishing in Yemen Premiere (Carolina Herrera): Though I'm totally obsessed with brights for spring and summer, I know that I'm going to rock a lot of black and blue this fall. The color combination is both subtle and striking at the same time. How? I honestly can't tell you. While I don't find this Herrera dress to be season-appropriate, I absolutely love it on Emily Bunt. The youthful bob and peep-toe heels are the perfect finishing touches .
