style envy: Rachel McAdams


With The Vow coming out this Friday, we’re excited for the chance to revisit a super-talented (and stylish) actress: Rachel McAdams. We’ve been fans of McAdams since she sauntered down the halls of North Shore High School as leader of the Plastics, then turned around and won our hearts as one-half of a star-crossed couple in the Notebook. Since then, she’s proven time and again that she can play the bad girl, the young ingénue, a fearless heroine, and everything in between.

Regardless of the character she’s playing, McAdams’ red-carpet style is always enviable. This girl is a fan of sleek glamour, but she’s also not afraid to take a little risk, whether it’s with her hair color (remember those pink streaks?) or a daring silhouette. We’ve chosen some of our favorite McAdams’ looks, from both on the screen and off.

For her break-out role as the despicable Regina George, McAdams rocked an array of miniskirts and a spectrum of pink.

As heiress Allie in the classic tear-jerker The Notebook, she got to sport the best of forties’ and fifties’ fashion: gorgeous suits and dresses, and some fabulous hats.

Although Midnight in Paris’s Inez plays the cynical foil to the charmingly naïve Gil, we have to admit that her clothes are great. As we’ve gushed about before, we loved the effortless, Euro-chic wardrobe.

And now, the red-carpet highlights, from pink hair at a Wedding Crashers premiere (has anyone else made neon highlights look so adorable?) to a sequined bustier and linen pants on the red carpet this year.

 

 

best-dressed films: the Golden Globe goes to…

tartelettes, tonight’s Golden Globes has us all geared up for awards season. Of course, we love a good film, but we’re really waiting to see some serious fashion — when else can you find so many amazing dresses packed onto the red carpet? From the SAG awards to BAFTA, and finishing off with the Oscars at the end of February, it’s like a two-month marathon of evening-gown gorgeousness.

Come to think of it, this awards season’s glamour really started within the films nominated — with so many romantic period pieces on the ballot, we’ve been having as much fashion fun watching the movies as we usually do the red carpet.

Midnight in Paris

 Midnight in Paris, in which Owen Wilson is shuffled between today and the 1920s, kicked things off with a wardrobe of sublime French chic — from both our era and the jazz age. Modern-day Rachel McAdams stole every scene with her perfect travel wardrobe: a collection of airy shirt-dresses, silk blouses, comfy wedges, and statement jewelery that succeeded in looking effortlessly put-together every time. Marion Cotillard’s vintage flapper look – all shimmer, beading, and red lipstick – was equally enchanting. Tres jolie.

 

My Week with Marilyn

 Of course, My Week with Marilyn was a decadent display of fifties’ fashion, with a bodacious Michelle Williams stitched into curve-hugging gowns and coquettish sweaters. Bye-bye, aviators and motorcycle boots: we’re busting out our cat-eyes and kitten heels this spring.

 

The Artist

In another retro turn, silent film The Artist had us dreaming about a closet filled with glamorous twenties’ looks. Leading lady Berenice Bejo, who perfectly captured the charm of a rising star with her white gloves and jaunty hats, had us running out to buy a cloche as soon as we left the theater.

 

We’ll be cozying up in front of the TV this weekend and living vicariously through our favorite stars’ wardrobes. Will you be watching?

 

 

Hello, Sweetheart

As the stars walked the Red Carpet some looks were right on and others, well…. not so much.  Three of my favorite dresses were all different with one common thread: the ultra-feminine, sweetheart neckline.  This super-girly cut really shows off your collar bones & in my opinion, collar bones are sexy (notice there’s no need for necklaces with these gowns)!  Now I know Miley Cyrus received some “flack” for her champagne Jenny Packham gown, but this young & fresh number is just perfect for her. Let’s be honest, if any of us could wear it, we would–she looked incredible! On the other end of the color spectrum was Carey Mulligan’s Swarovski-encrusted Prada gown. The sweetheart neckline is perfectly complimented by her pixie cut and chandelier earrings. Essentially, the look is girly meets edgy. My personal favorite who got it all right: Rachel McAdams. She had me at The Notebook and this look is a far cry from her breakout role in Mean Girls. Her makeup is  impeccable & her watercolor-organza Elie Saab gown is just incredibly romantic and whimsical.  Who were your favorites?
