best dressed of the CFDA awards

There is nothing I love more then red-hot stars on a red-hot carpet, and if there was ever an event to showcase extraordinary style, it’s the CFDA awards – the Council of Fashion Designers of America. When it comes to stunning styles and show-stopping looks, this year was no exception. Stars were turning heads and stealing headlines with amazing silhouettes, draping, and color.

It was hard to choose, but we narrowed it down to five ladies we feel deserve our red carpet best-dressed nod.

 

 

Sophia Bush

The former One Tree Hill actress proved that she’s become a serious style star.

girl crush: Elizabeth Olsen

We’re not going to lie: when we were growing up, we drew most of our fashion inspiration from a mischief-making pair of girls who went by the singular title of “Mary-Kate and Ashley.” Even now, we still find ourselves seeking out the latest photo shoots and interviews of the stylish duo to find out what we should be wearing. So, when younger sister Elizabeth appeared on the Hollywood scene last year, we thought, “Poor girl! Who could stand out from the long shadow of MK&A?”

We needn’t have worried. Little Lizzie has proven to be a full-blown actress and style maven in her own right. With her ability to rock both vintage glam and hipster cool, she’s our new favorite girl crush.

 

 

girl’s best friend: celebs and their furry besties


Rachel Bilson walks Thurman Murmen, her adorable mixed breed dog.

Lauren Conrad stays fit walking her rescue pup, Chloe.

Kate Beckinsale has her hands full with two little puppies — yet she still manages to find time to shop, go Kate!

January Jones took a stroll with her furry friend in the cool, spring sunshine near her house in LA yesterday. Apparently, the The Mad Men star walks her dog every day!

 

Hilary Duff runs errands with her dog Dubois, a beautiful Bernese mountain dog — how cute!

 

Ashley Olsen carries her adorable French bulldog to her car in NYC. Such a small girl carrying a heavy little pooch….talk about an arm work out.

 

Amanda Seyfried is rarely seen without her dog Finn by her side. She takes Finn everywhere …even on set.

The Olsen twins have done it again!

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have found yet another fashion venture to tackle. The designers of The Row and Elizabeth James label are now designing and merchandising chic t-shirts on stylemint.com for only $29.99. To enroll in this exclusive program you must sign up and answer a few quick questions to define your style. Once finished, you can choose from an assortment of t-shirts that cater to your preferred style. I love how the collections will change monthly and as that happens they’ll continue to sort out the styles specifically for you. Also, Mary-Kate and Ashley will offer monthly style advice to help dress up a basic tee for a night out or make it more casual for daytime, and nothing goes better with a T than tarte’s LipSurgence™ lip tints and lusters–buff for day and amused for night!

I personally love v-necks! What style t-shirt do you prefer?!

Influence

A recent addition to my collection of coffee table books is Influence, the new compilation of interviews from Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. These twins seem to have had business savvy characteristics in their blood since birth and this next accomplishment they can add to that lengthy tally. This near 300 page book features 20 interviews (some together, some separate) with an array of influential icons, some of which they have known for years and others they were meeting for the first time. I loved their choice of individuals and thought it was a great representation of art, fashion and lifestyle. My personal favorite was Diane Von Furstenberg a woman I myself admire. Another great caption was with writer Bob Colacello, where MK couldn’t get enough about the days of partying in the factory with Andy Warhol (possibly why she is always spotted at swanky joints such as the Beatrice Inn.) All-in-all bravo to the Olsen’s! What a fabulous glimpse into some of the most creative and influential minds!
