holiday gift guide: urban muse

One of our favorite rock & roll divas, Kim Schifino (the female half of the indie dance duo Matt & Kim) is a fearless, stylish and hilarious tartelette! Check out #MKrealtalk to see what we mean. She also lives by a cruelty-free philosophy, so when it came time to plan Matt & Kim’s Fall 2012 Lightning Tour, the duo arranged to host that city’s no-kill animal shelter in the concert venue’s lobby. This gave concert-goers the opportunity to learn how they can help keep their community a no-kill area. We’re very proud to call her a tartelette — but not too proud to snoop through her holiday gift list!

Blogger, model, fashion designer, and “it kid”  – à la Nylon Magazine — Audrey Kitching has definitely made an impression on us.  A funky cross between girly and punk, she’s a pop culture princess, social media maven and  bona fide trendsetter.

the (fashion) perks of being a wallflower…

Emma Watson is simply adorable as Sam in the new movie The Perks of Being a Wallflower. Not only does she truly shine in her portrayal of the restless high school senior, but she absolutely nails the look.  From the haircut to the shoes, she mixes angsty  with stylish flair and gives us a little insight to this season’s fall fashion trends.

icon envy: grace kelly or elizabeth taylor

Achieving the status of timeless beauty icon is no easy feat, nor is it based on looks alone. Sure these women scored in the genetic lottery — Grace’s bone structure seems to defy the laws of nature, and Liz’s double rows of eyelashes were a (lucky) genetic mutation — but pretty faces aside, the two stunners were able to maintained the public’s attention with poise, mystery, elegance and flair — while carving out their own distinct personalities.

girl crush: sutton foster

Calling all current, former, and wanna-be ballerinas: if you haven’t caught the new dance drama that is Bunheads, you are seriously missing out. It’s got all the makings of a romance-cum-comedy-cum-drama, but with ballet… and a wise-cracking, shot-taking, plié-ing leading lady played by newcomer Sutton Foster. Dance shows and movies can be tricky, given the difficulty of finding someone who can both pas de bourrée and play a complicated character convincingly. But, with her Broadway background, Sutton has the dancing and acting chops for both — all the while rocking a cool California-girl look and, of course, making us laugh.

Sutton, we’re hooked.

Beauty battle: Audrey Hepburn or Jackie O?

Both incredible beauties, fashion icons, and strong, elegant women who undoubtedly shaped the world around them. It seems almost impossible to compare the two, but we’re going to do it anyway.

If you had to choose one of these women as your style icon, who would it be?

girl crush: Jessica Chastain

 

It’s pretty obvious that 2011 was a breakout year for Jessica Chastain. Suddenly, this ethereal redhead seemed to be floating down every major red carpet, leaving us all asking – who is that girl?

We quickly found out: a poised starlet who can hold her own in films both artsy (Tree of Life) and mass-market (The Help) – and whose versatile, romantic style literally makes us weak in the knees. All that together make her oh-so crush worthy.

 

Who’s your girl crush?
