The basic white tee — we all have one . . . or 10. The beauty of a white tee is that there is an infinite number of ways to style one. Want to know our favorites? Watch on and to see seven stylish ways to wear your fave tee right now.
No, that’s not a photo from one of the stylish years in the 1960s you’re looking at. That lovely photo of Salma Hayek was taken just last night at a dinner held during the Venice Biennale, one of the world’s biggest contemporary art festivals. And while Hayek was busy celebrating the ‘Il Mondo Vi Appartiene’ exhibit, we’d be happy just to talk about this outfit. (And wait til you see it in color!)
So, we kind of have a thing for glasses here on Styleite, which is why we were over the moon to see Anne Hathaway rock an oversize pair at the Los Angeles premiere of her animated film, Rio. Hathaway paired her specs with a dark purple silk organza dress from Gucci’s Spring/Summer 2011 collection and a pair of matching violet heels.
Where there’s a red carpet, there’s a Blake Lively, but Thursday marked almost three weeks without Karl Lagerfeld‘s favorite American. And while we were totally prepared to write up Julianna Hough’s ensemble in her stead, we woke up this morning to not one but two Lively looks. In honor of the fourth day of CinemaCon (and her award for Breakthrough Performer Of The Year), Lively spent the day in white Dolce & Gabbana and the evening in a blood red, tutu-inspired dress by Marchesa.
Anne Hathaway may have co-hosted Sunday night’s 83rd Annual Academy Awards, but her eight (count ‘em!) outfit changes most definitely stole the show.
Basically, every Hollywood celebrity and their mother was out and about last night for a myriad events that ran the gamut from Tom Ford‘s Los Angeles store opening to a Forevermark party for Michelle Williams to the Hollywood Reporter’s Big 10 fete to Vanity Fair’s soiree celebrating Fox Searchlight Films. And the worst part of all this is that, instead of banding together (to make our lives easier, natch), our favorite style stars decided to divide and conquer.
Another Sunday night, another awards show. This time, the stars came out to celebrate each other at the Screen Actors Guild Awards, where a decidedly safe red carpet provided but a few outstanding ensembles. Our favorites, after the jump.
We’ll go first: we absolutely loved Christina Hendricks‘ black sequined wrap dress by L’Wren Scott. Hendricks likened the look to a smoking jacket — and kudos to her! Besides being incredibly flattering, we thought, how deliciously comfortable! That said, we knew it was bound to be a controversial look — most of Hendricks’ red carpet ensembles are — which begs the question: what did you think?
As with every red carpet event of the last month, Natalie Portman (and her beautiful belly) was tonight’s most eagerly anticipated appearance. Opting for an ivory strapless gown by Azzaro, Portman looked every bit the elegant, Old Hollywood movie star — albeit a decidedly pregnant one. We’re happy she favored a form-fitting style for tonight, but can’t quite figure out whether this her best look yet — or merely the safest.
When Tom Ford debuted his eponymous womenswear collection back in September, it came with a few ground rules: no photos, no magazine coverage, and no red carpets until at least December. Ford felt that fashion had become “overexposed” due to its focus on celebrities and red carpets and instead wanted to keep his consumers curious until February deliveries. But December came and went without a Ford dress on a red carpet, and the Golden Globes proved barren as well. But this week, in a move befitting her title, Anna Wintour officially became the first woman to wear Ford in public.
Is there anything more delightful than a good Time Warp on a chilly Thursday? In this case, no — and especially not when it’s a never before seen photo of Jacqueline Kennedy walking through a snowstorm to get to her husband’s inauguration gala. Yes, even first ladies get wet when it rains.
Contrary to almost every breathless prediction we read today, Michelle Obama did not select an Asian-American designer’s dress for the state dinner with China. Instead, the First Lady wore a gown designed by the late Alexander McQueen to host Chinese President Hu Jintao and his wife, First Lady Liu Yongqing.
…Olivia Wilde, hands down. As Justin put it, “It’s like a pair of Louboutins swallowed a box of fireworks.” And though they spent most of the night hidden under the big skirt of her super sparkly Marchesa gown, Wilde certainly made a concerted effort to show them off.
The stars of HBO’s polygamist drama Big Love stepped out Wednesday night to celebrate the premiere of the show’s fifth season. And as any good fashionista knows, where Chloe Sevigny goes, a fashion moment will follow. But Ginnifer Goodwin gave Sevigny a run for her money on the red carpet and now it’s up to you to decide: who was last night’s best dressed?
The People’s Choice Awards were last night and, while we have no idea who won what, we do know what went down on the red, er, blue carpet. Click through to see Natalie Portman’s adorable baby bump, Khloe Kardashian’s newly red ‘do, Katy Perry’s awesome ombre ensemble, and Ashley Tisdale’s no good, very bad tan.
Whatever you did for New Year’s Eve, it probably wasn’t as star-studded or super swanky as the Marquee bash at The Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas. The guest list included Blake Lively, Alexander Wang and Beyoncé. Jay-Z and Kanye performed. Rihanna was there. We, sadly, were not. The next best thing? Seeing what everyone wore the day after!
Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall might not be the highest-ranking member of the British royal family, but she’s certainly trying to be its most stylish. The duchess kept warm in an on-trend camel cape at the London International Horse Show yesterday. She certainly looked the part of the horse-y upper crust when she checked out the stables and posed for pictures with a life-sized puppet pony. While we’re not entirely sold on the, uh, suit she was wearing underneath, we like that Camilla is taking inspiration from a few members of the fashion royalty from across the pond.
Last night, the First Family rang in the holiday season with the lighting of the National Christmas Tree. And while their — and everyone else’s — eyes were on the tree, ours were on Michelle Obama’s black and gold embroidered coat which looked both stunning and decidedly familiar.
There are few musicians out there we love more than Beth Ditto. The Gossip frontwoman, muse to Karl Lagerfeld and Jean Paul Gaultier, and all around awesome role model has a kick-ass voice and some even more kick-ass style.
On Wednesday, when the rest of us were busy buying ingredients to make dinner for families and friends, First Lady Michelle Obama and her family were busy serving the needs of others. They gave out bags of Thanksgiving essentials to families in need at Martha’s Table, a Washington-area organization dedicated to helping solve poverty. For the occasion, the first lady wore a cream sweater and a purple scarf trimmed in pearls. It’s the kind of accessory that’s easy to throw on and can turn a so-so outfit — like a simple cream sweater and slacks — into something spectacular looking in no time flat
