Holiday Beauty Series: Makeup and Hair

Latest trends, Style Icons

Party season is in high gear by now. With Christmas being a hop, skip, and jump away, I know that you are in dire need of fresh beauty ideas to up your party glam game. Don’t fret, I’ve found a ton of hair and makeup trends that are sure to give your new sparkly dress and that favorite LBD the extra kick of chic that it needs. Here are my top picks for the best in makeup and hair trends this holiday 2015:

High Ponytail

Sleek, wavy, or feminine, a high ponytail should be your hairdo of choice if your dress has low-cut back or intricate back detailing.




The Grown Up Sock Bun

Now, we all love a messy sock bun when we’re relaxing at home. Take your go-to hairdo to the next level by making your bun voluminous by teasing it a la Cara Delevingne. You can also take a cue and keep it sleek a la J. Lo or accent it with a full-on bang like Rihanna.




Accessorize It

You can always count on  floral or crystal embellishment to cure to a bland hair style. When in doubt, accessorize.



Braided Beauty

Braids have a had a strong showing for multiple seasons now. This holiday season, braids move away from the bohemian and into more romantic and sophisticated territory.



Sienna-MillerMaking Waves

Whether you opt for tousled waves like Jessica Alba or old Hollywood glam like Kate Beckinsale or Blake Lively, or even some asymmetrical action like Allison Williams, your curling iron will be your best friend this party season.





Tease Me

Add a whole lot of drama when you add a little bit of volume to your holiday hair style. A little bit of undone glam never hurt.

Bold Lips

Statement lips never go out of style. Classic red, girly pink, or edgy and bold dark berry like Kim Kardashian-West, let your lips do the talking this holiday party season.

Glow On

Enhance your skin’s natural beauty with understated stained lips, gold shimmer on the lids, and a sweep of bronzer.




Color Splash

This season be brave and experiment eyeshadow and liner in shades of blue, mauve and purple.




Smoke It Out

Smoky eyes are always a winner when it comes to nailing a sexy, party look. Deviate from the standard dark, black smoky eye, and try out a softer brown smoky eye.




Walk the Line

A dramatic cat eye is all you need to draw attention to your gorgeous eyes. Put a little mascara on, and you’re all set.

Which hair and makeup trend will you be trying on for your next party? I’m excited to try a brown smoky eye and a high ponytail. Happy holidays everyone!

The New Generation of Style Icons

Latest trends, Style Icons

If you’re a fashion fan, you’re familiar with the style icons of our time. Victoria Beckham, Kate Moss, and Beyonce are just some personalities that are considered style royalty. There is a new crop of style stars on the rise, most of them are Young Hollywood celebrities that are learning the ropes of red carpet dressing and standout street style at a young age. When it comes to fashion, age ain’t but a number. Some of these young ones are showing extraordinary sartorial prowess, take notes from the new generation of style icons. I’m sure they’ll teach you a thing or two.


Triple threat (actress, dancer, and singer) Zendaya started out in the Disney Channel. But she is now coming into her own, especially when it comes to her bold fashion choices. She always surprises fashion fans with her red carpet outfits and her statement making street style. I love how Zendaya’s style always has an element of danger to it. Whether it’s a thigh high slit or the effortless pairing of white sneakers with an embellished evening look, her looks are always on the cutting edge.

Maddie Ziegler

Maddie Ziegler of Dance Moms fame skyrocketed into the public eye through her star-making appearance on Sia’s “Chandelier” video. From there, she has been appearing in both the big and small screen. She is now poised for a fashion takeover, which these days, is the natural progression for most up-and-coming Young Hollywood personalities. Maddie has had experience as an ELLE correspondent for fashion week, and has appeared in publications and editorials for Teen Vogue and Glamour among others. She’s certainly embracing fashion with open arms, and I just love her playful style. She always comes in looks that are age appropriate, and I adore how she plays up bright colors in her looks!

Bella Thorne

Actress (and Zendaya’s BFF) Bella Thorne always wows with her outfits. She typically has girly and feminine style, but she can sometimes mix it up with more edgy and sexy looks. These two looks below are especially telling of her sense of style. She always adds feminine flair to all her looks. Bella Thorne always looks polished to boot. She always makes sure that her looks coordinate perfectly.

Kiernan Shipka

Mad Men alum Kiernan Shipka is most often lauded for her amazing style. She consistently nails glamorous looks that still feel appropriate to her age and her build. Her petite frame is always elegantly outfitted in tailored separates or structured dresses that never overwhelm her or make her look older. Shipka is proof that dressing your age is a worthy fashion goal to aspire for.

Victoria Justice

Victoria Justice looks like a girl-next-door and has certainly perfected the art of dressing that way–with a unique twist of course. I love how she adds uniqueness to each look. Justice knows that it’s all about the accessories. It can be silver booties with a plain black coat and jeans or a fringed tassel bag with a tribal print coordinating set.

Sarah Hyland

Sarah Hyland has been making fashion headlines as of late. Her unexpected yet totally spot-on glamorous red carpet looks have landed her firmly on the best-dressed radar. Don’t you just love how she bucks convention and sticks to silhouettes that she truly loves and are truly flattering to her figure and stature? She styles this low-cut black romper with aplomb. Hyland keeps things simple and sophisticated by letting sexy silhouettes do the talking.

Hailee Steinfeld

Hailee Steinfeld is perpetually clad in Miu Miu. Hey, no complaints here. She certainly embodies the one-of-a-kind girly meets rebellious spirit of the Miu Miu brand. I love how Steinfeld’s looks are always leaning toward the more avant-garde, a definite departure from her sugary sweet and youthful beauty. Take a cue from her, and don’t be afraid to get some more haute couture flavor into your everyday looks.

Shailene Woodley

Shailene Woodley has tomboy chic style down pat. She shows off her athletic build and her sense of style flawlessly. I love how her sporty black crop top is offset by a trendy printed pencil skirt. Woodley embraces what she loves best in terms of fashion and marries with trends that are hot at the moment, that’s the recipe for great style.

Which style icon will you be watching out for? I know that they will all be on my radar. They’re all so chic in their own ways.

Style Icon: Gigi Hadid

Latest trends, Sporty Chic, Style Icons

Gigi Hadid is definitely having a major moment in the limelight. Have you seen her in the new Calvin Harris video? She looks stunning in it! Gigi Hadid is a full-time model as well as a full-time member of Taylor Swift‘s enviable girl squad (Hadid was Slay-Z in the infamous Bad Blood video), and she’s also Kendall Jenner‘s BFF.

Hadid may always be in the company of pop culture phenoms and pop stars (her former boyfriend was Cody Simpson and her current one is Joe Jonas), but she has her own unique look and style that has landed her on the pages and covers of various fashion publications. She has appeared in Sports Illustrated, Paper Magazine, CLEO, Vogue as well as Carine Roitfeld‘s CR Fashion Book. Her career is taking off, and along with it, people are sitting up and taking notice of her style.

Here are the looks that I love from Gigi Hadid:

main.original.585x0 (1)

Gigi’s coat game is always on point. Deviate from navy and black, you certainly will shake things up this fall when you don a bold colored coat just like this one.

main.original.585x0 (2)

Dressing up your flip-flops and denim shorts this summer? Take notes from Gigi Hadid’s ensemble. A structured topper like this one and a leather tote will work wonders in making your casual tee and shorts look just a tad bit more polished.

main.original.585x0 (3)

What did I tell you about Gigi Hadid’s outerwear game? Isn’t this embellished cape gorgeous? I love how she played up the white detailing on her cape by wearing white sneakers and white frame sunnies.

main.original.585x0 (4)

An oversized military blazers feels vintage and oh-so-unique. On-trend shell toe Adidas sneakers take this look into 2015.

main.original.585x0 (5)

Next time you’re considering an glittery dress, why not consider a coat-as-dress look like Gigi? It separates you from the cocktail dress crowd and makes you stand stylishly above the rest.

main.original.585x0 (6)

Pin this to your style boards on Pinterest ASAP! This gold jumpsuit will have you shimmering from head to foot, and it is so perfect for the resurgence of the 70s trend.

main.original.585x0 (7)

 Gig took a fashion risk with pairing horizontal with vertical stripes. But having the two pieces with the same colors kept the look harmonious.


Gigi nails the quintessential model off duty look in a pair of distressed jeans, white tee, and bucket bag. This ensemble also reinforces the fact that all cool girls must own the perfect ankle boots.


I am in love with this dress! It’s the perfect balance of edgy and feminine, sweet and sexy.


On the cover of Vogue Espana, Gigi Hadid looks stunning! She’s giving serious brow envy, that’s for sure. Her feathered brows are divine. All the fur makes it so glam too!


The western vibes of this look combined with some seriously 70s accessories is a styling trick to take note of.


Let this editorial inspire you on how to style your striped shirt. Pair with layered necklaces and a fedora hat, add in a bandana for extra edge.


A disco glam yellow maxi dress paired with geometric accessories and western boots is a fashion mashup I could get behind.

What do you think of Gigi Hadid’s style? She is burgeoning fashion icon in my book. I can’t wait to see more of her style!


Style Icon: Chrissy Teigen

Latest trends, Style Icons

Chrissy Teigen is the reigning queen of Instagram and Twitter. She consistently makes headlines with her funny quips and sometimes, controversial posts on social media. Don’t even get me started on her drool-worthy food posts on Instagram! She is a food blogger, after all. Watch out for her upcoming cookbook, from the looks of it (on her Instagram posts) things are looking scrumptious. Her and her hubby, John Legend, also have the cutest couple pics in all of Insta-land.

Teigen’s recent gig as one of the hosts, along with LL Cool J, for Lip Sync Battle just proves that she has gained an absolutely loyal following beyond social media. This half Norwegian and half-Thai beauty got her start in modeling, and eventually moved onto different trades from there. If you haven’t followed her on social media, get on it ASAP. Her stellar style is also one to watch and one to imitate, for sure. She definitely has that model on and off duty style down pat.

Here’s a rundown of my favorite looks from Chrissy Teigen:

main.original.585x0 (1)

Following the footsteps of Kendall Jenner and Angelina Jolie, Chrissy Teigen shows a lot of leg during this year’s White House Correspondents Dinner. It wasn’t just her toned gams on display, her style savvy was too. The dark red lip with her midnight blue gown is a great pairing.

main.original.585x0 (2)

Chrissy Teigen’s chic dog walking ensembles have earned a cult following among fashion fans. This look is no exception. Embellished sandals, striped crop top with cuffed and overalls, all these unexpected elements come together for an elevated casual daytime look.

main.original.585x0 (3)

Teigen naturally has a youthful energy and carefree vibe, and I love how she carries that over to her red carpet looks. This sheer number gets more exciting with that contrast white panel to her black skirt. So modern.

main.original.585x0 (4)

Coral and nude such a contemporary color combinations that feels so classic. Love how Teigen’s honey highlights complements this outfit so well.

main.original.585x0 (5)

Another lesson in red carpet dressing from Chrissy Teigen, a fully embellished gown is all the bling you need.

main.original.585x0 (6)

This is such a daring red carpet look as far as I’m concerned. Fully sequined for the Grammys, the mermaid silhouette, slit, and low-cut cleavage all serve to emphasize Chrissy’s rockin’ bod amazingly.

main.original.585x0 (7)

File this under ladylike style for work wear inspiration. The polka dot pencil skirt with the boxy leather bag is perfection.

main.original.585x0 (8)

Teigen takes the 70s with her as she hits the streets in a snakeskin saddle bag with oversized sunnies.

main.original.585x0 (9)

Can you really wear a tank top for a night out? The answer is YES. As long as you dress it up with some embellished leather and a statement making belt just like Chrissy does.

main.original.585x0 (10)

This look is just more wardrobe inspiration for me to get an ultra chic jumpsuit. The graphic stripes and the sparkle makes this piece stand out even more.


Another jumpsuit look? Oh yes. An all black jumpsuit with a deep-V gets elevated with simple styling and some beach babe waves.

So many amazing looks to choose from! I love the effortlessness and fun in Chrissy Teigen’s looks!

Hottest Denim Trends

Latest trends, Style Icons

If there is one thing we can be sure of is that denim will be a mainstay in our closet. From your everyday jeans to your staple denim jacket, the timelessness and rugged casual vibe of denim can’t be beat.

You probably have lots of jeans and a couple of non-pants denim pieces like a denim shirt or skirt, and you probably have trendy styles like wide leg jeans and boyfriend jeans. But I’m here to tell you all about the hottest denim trends that you absolutely must-have. This is your guide to fashion forward denim this coming season.

Patchwork Denim

Blame it on the 70s trend that is taking over. Patchwork denim is having a major moment. From rebel denim patches a la Leigh Lezark or going full patchwork with a shirt and jeans like Miroslava Duma, patchwork denim is an exceptional way to get on your denim A game. I also love how Annabelle Fleur of Viva Luxury wore her patchwork denim, with a classic camel trench. That’s the key to making this trend work, tone down the boho feel of patchwork with pieces like leather jacket and ankle booties.

Denim Overalls

Take it back to the old school and get nostalgic with a pair of denim overalls. This isn’t for the kindergarten playground anymore. Star blogger Chiara Ferragni of The Blonde Salad wore an embellished denim jumper that looks so stylish, especially when paired with a bright hued cross body. You can also opt to let the overalls hang loose around your waist like Gwen Stefani, it gives such a rocker feel! As Alexa Chung does airport chic with a denim jumper and a trench coat and Selena Gomez rocks a crop top for a cute festival look, you can definitely see how versatile this piece can be.

White Denim

No white jeans after Labor Day? Nah. Feel free to throw fashion rules out the window this season, and prepare for the white denim trend takeover. You can wear this typical summer staple well into fall/winter, it all depends on the styling. Consider white denim as your new go-to season transition piece.

Take a cue from Lauren Conrad, wear it with a fuzzy knit and a top knot for an easy laid-back look. I also love how Alessandra Ambrosio kept the camel color palette of her ensemble consistent resulting in a polished chic look.

Love street style? Give your white denim some global style attitude. Try some colorful fur or menswear inspired styling.

Denim Skirts

Denim skirts are making a major comeback. It’s not about mini skirts in the 00s. It’s all about slim pencil-like silhouettes with either a sexy slit or a button-down front. Sleek and modern, reach for figure-hugging denim skirt styles that end at the knee. Get inspired by Olivia Palermo and Poppy Delevingne, and keep the rest of your outfit simple. Reach for statement shoes to finish off the look though, check out Olivia’s lace up heels and Poppy’s glittery sandals.

Other alternative denim skirt styles to try: high-waist distressed denim minis and denim midi skirts.

Frayed Denim

Cutting edge fashion bloggers like Man Repeller and Fashion Eaters rarely get trends wrong. Frayed denim is the latest blues that it girls are wearing. Instead of cuffed and distressed, frayed hems just give your look an undone cool look. Balance this effortlessly casual trend with more structured items like block-heeled ankle boots, cap-toe ballet flats, and a leather top handle satchel.

Bleached/Tie-Dye Denim

Whether you choose to DIY this denim trend or not, bleached and tie-dye denim is the new must-have wash. Balance this trendy piece with classic items to avoid looking a fashion victim. Check out how these street style stars style this piece, you might get an idea or two.






Which denim style are you loving? So hard to choose just one, I want ’em all!


Style Icon: Selena Gomez

Latest trends, Style Icons

Selena Gomez has gone from Disney star to a bona fide platinum pop star. She’s had some pretty stellar movie appearances too (see: Spring Breakers and Monte Carlo), with more films on the way. Crossing over from TV to recording and movies is no easy feat, and it’s an indication of how talented and determined this Young Hollywood star is.

You know what else makes her stand out? Her style. Whether it’s on the red carpet or on the streets, Selena‘s style is always youthful, playful, and sophisticated all at the same time. Here’s my roundup of Selena Gomez‘s best fashion moments:


I am in love with this look! Consider this your new inspo for your next workout chic look. I love those sheer panels on those leggings, that’s fashion meets function at its best. Those pink sneaks are pretty cute too.

Print on print perfection personified. Don’t mind the alliteration and focus you attention on Selena’s effortless print mixing. Check out her braided hair brand look too.

main.original.585x0 (1)

Take a style cue from Selena Gomez. Rich textured fabrics like brocade is sure to upgrade your white tank, denim cutoffs, and ankle boots combo.

main.original.585x0 (2)

A quick way to make a solid style statement? Choose footwear that commands attention and gets you guaranteed wow points. Just like how these knee-high gladiator heels elevate Selena’s tie-dye casual T-shirt dress.

main.original.585x0 (3)

Dress up your comfy maxi dress with combat boots and a leather motorcycle jacket. This look is the perfect cross section between the girly meets trendy vibe, which let’s be honest, is what Selena’s style is all about.

main.original.585x0 (4)

Simple and sophisticated in this year’s trendy Marsala color, Selena Gomez shows us the power of a great color. No embellishments or extra accessories needed.

main.original.585x0 (5)

Needing a style refresh on that striped tee? Selena can guide you. An oversized white blazer/trench hybrid and leather pants should do the trick nicely.

main.original.585x0 (6)

The boldness of the black against the delicate polka dots is what makes this frock stand out from your typical evening looks. I love how Selena styled it and made it more youthful with a sleek updo and large hoops.

main.original.585x0 (7)

Simple and chic, Selena ups the glam and edginess of this black evening column gown with gold geometric accessories and an armful of trendy wrist candy.

main.original.585x0 (8)

Coachella-inspired airport style? Oh yes. The high rise distressed denim and the turquoise choker up the cool girl vibe of the rust orange halter top. Major style cred goes to Selena for this style savvy airport look.


Keep things on the right side of chic when wearing a dress that has a short hemline and a cleavage baring neckline. Selena has the right idea by toning down the sexiness with an elegant updo and minimal accessories.

There you have it. I hope that Selena’s style has given you a tip or two about what to try in your personal style.

Leather Love

A leather jacket is a transitional style staple. Blake Lively pairs her camel leather jacket with an all-black ensemble and accessorizes with a felt hat and stylish loafers. Throw on a leather jacket and see what a huge difference it makes.

Statement Outerwear

Anna Kendrick recognizes the power of statement outerwear all too well. Her feather and embellished white coat is all the style she needs.

Liven Up Your Black Tights


Olivia Palermo has an amazing sense of style, we all know that. She shows off her savvy with how she breathes new life into a fall staple, the black tights. Wear with a flirty summery skirt and place some pops of color. I love how her orange heel matches her orange clutch.

Ripped Denim + Ankle Boots

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is one of the masters of airport style. She upgrades the cool girl uniform of ankle boots and ripped denim with a cozy yet chic pink, fuzzy cardigan.

Coordinate with Color

Jamie Chung knows that you don’t have to say goodbye to bold and vibrant summer colors when fall rolls around. Matching your colors, whether it’s your shoes and purse or your jacket and tights, makes for a polished look.

Back to School

That 70’s Show

Chrissy Teigen is a burgeoning style star. Don’t leave your flared jeans behind, and sport it with a fun printed sweater. That 70s saddle bag gives it more trendy curb appeal.

Oversized Sweater


I love how Vanessa Hudgens her gray oversized sweater. Blurring the line between the season, she expertly pairs with a black pencil skirt and black platforms, that scream summer boho chic.

Black and White


Gwen Stefani‘s rocker chic style is to die for. Continue your love for the print on print trend from summer to fall, but opt for darker colors like Gwen does. You can’t go wrong with black and white. The mock turtleneck and studded ankle boots make this look more fall appropriate

Got any ideas yet? I know I have. Share your summer to fall style secrets in the comments below.


Style Icon: Nicki Minaj

Style Icons

Her summer Pink Print tour, her romance with Meek Mill, and her nonstop invasion of the music world, hip-hop maven Nicki Minaj is right on track with world domination. How can you not love her danceable songs and her in-your-face personality? I love her so much! I love her candor and bravado. Most of all, I love how Nicki Minaj is unapologetic. She embraces every single part of her body and her identity. She is such an inspiration. And hey, her style is always glam and on point too. Here are some of my favorite Nicki looks:


This cut outs and mutiple buckles on this leather number is stunning! Nicki Minaj shows in this Elle Magazine spread that she can wow in edgy black leather, just as well as she can in her signature pink.


Clad in Chanel in the Dazed Magazine cover, Nicki Minaj goes full-on sophisticated lady in a classic pink tweed jacket.


There is something about this image that is absolutely retro-glam. Maybe it’s Nicki‘s pin up girl curves or her 40s inspired waves, or maybe it’s those amazing green boots. I can’t decide.


Over-the-top glamour is what Nicki does best. But this photo is proof that she can do understated chic just as well. Gotta love this sleek knit jumpsuit.


Leave it to Nicki Minaj to take color blocking to the next level. I love this bold crop top and pencil skirt matching set. The studded ankle strap black platforms finish this look off with maximum drama.

main.original.585x0 (1)

Animal print + sequins… Is there any question as to how iconic this red carpet look is? Nicki Minaj nails modern glam yet again. I love how her dewy and nude beauty look complements her sparkly frock.


If you’ve got it, flaunt it. No one knows this better than Nicki. Emphasizing her beautiful curves, she takes your basic black evening dress up a notch with a deep V plunging neckline and glittering fringe.


This Alexander McQueen dress is positively made for modern royalty like Nicki. The geometric pattern is to die for.


Lady in Red for Glamour Magazine, Nicki Minaj’s sass and class is in full display in this bold red ensemble. I’ve got my eye on those red suede peep-toe heels.


Can you say #SQUADGOALS? Her video and song collab with Queen B herself, Beyonce, for “Feelin’ Myself” is one of the most iconic moments of the year. Pink fur, large hoops, and stacks of jewelry for days… this is signature Nicki. Aren’t the one-pieces in this video so adorable? If you live under a rock and haven’t seen this video yet, get on it ASAP. The music and fashion in this video is incredibly amazing!

What Nicki Minaj look do you love? I’m predicting that Nicki Minaj will pull out more jaw-dropping looks this year. Watch out for her Pink Print summer tour costumes too!


Style Icon: Katy Perry

Latest trends, Style Icons

Katy Perry has so many chart-topping hits, worldwide sold out tours, music awards and accolades, magazine covers, and memorable videos under her belt. She is definitely one of the most popular faces and voices in the music industry today.

More than her infectious songs, Katy Perry has also proven herself quite the style influencer and chameleon.

Aside from her awe inspiring costumes on tour and while performing, Katy has consistently expressed her vibrant and provocative personal style every single time she steps out. The best part about her style is its uniqueness and unpredictability. You never know what style move she’s going to show next. Here’s a quick look at Katy Perry‘s best style moments:

main.original.585x0 (1)

Graffiti chic during the Met Gala, Katy Perry achieves a red carpet coup yet again with this Moschino spray painted gown with matching spray paint can bag. So fun!

main.original.585x0 (2)

Dressing up in Coachella the way only Katy Perry knows how, this irreverent and romantic lace cream frock is just the unexpected style choice that we’ve come to see from Katy. The extra long pearl necklace and ribboned headband sweeten the deal too.

main.original.585x0 (3)

Hitting the Grammy red carpet in all blue. Literally blue from head to toe, she matches her beautiful embellished down with her blue ‘do. The powder blue hue is ethereal and an off-the-beaten path choice for the red carpet but it works.

main.original.585x0 (4)

Blue seems to be Katy’s color. This time around, her bright cobalt blue is made even better by its leather material and sheer embellished paneling on the top. The thin ribboned belt at the waist is also a nice touch. Those shoes might be a step too far though, they have this weird “doll” vibe that seems out of place here. Simple nude suede or leather pumps would look much better.

main.original.585x0 (9)

Katy’s ever changing hair color is one of her signature style accessories. Resplendent with purple hued locks, her nude peek-a-boo dress shows off her amazing curves in style. I love how she let the dress take center stage and kept the rest of her look simple, incredibly sexy.


Provocative and high fashion, this red carpet look from Katy is one of my favorites. It’s almost Madonna-esque in its uniqueness. The embellishment overload works in her favor. This is my favourite look for her, it is very grown up, somewhat traditional, very luxury and at the same time has playfulness and youthful vibe added by those sleeves.


Katy Perry’s shoot for Wonderland Magazine is further proof of her chameleon-like characteristics. I mean, how great does she looks with red hair and full bangs?

main.original.585x0 (1)

Multiple colored feathers and multiple straps on the back, can you get any more couture than that? I love the matching bleached brows and blonde sleek hair too! I don’t think I would recognise her like this.

main.original.585x0 (3)

Another proof that blue is Katy’s color. Love that oversized ribbon.

main.original.585x0 (2)

Long, poker straight hair complements the beautiful print of this column gown. The print has got me ooh-ing and aah-ing.

Did you fall in love with Katy’s style more after this post? I know I did. I can’t wait to see her on the red carpet again to see what she does next!


Style Icon: Kristen Stewart

Style Icons

The general public (and Twilight fans, for that matter) may know her as Bella Swan.

But there’s definitely more to Kristen Stewart than meets the eye.

Having established herself as an actress that can star in both mainstream and indie pictures, Kristen Stewart has always been a fixture on the red carpet. Her style can be described as androgynous meets rock n’ roll glam. As the current face of Balenciaga and Chanel, Kristen Stewart has major fashion clout. Both her fashion campaigns and personal style attest to that.

Here are some of my favorite K-Stew fashion moments:

main.original.585x0 (8)

Although her fashion tastes lean more toward the tomboy chic side, Stewart can certainly glam it up. This Vogue Germany fashion spread is all the proof you need. See how the emerald jewelry makes the green in her eyes pop? Simply amazing.

Channeling her character in The Runaways, she evokes Joan Jett‘s grit and edginess in this Interview Magazine cover. The heavy handed liner is perfectly suited for her undone glam style, she pulls it off quite well.

I love this powder blue gown she wore for a Vanity Fair France shoot, it is perfectly dainty, and an antithesis for her rebel textured bob.

Barefoot and completely pulling off this sparkly stunner.

So in love with all the bling! This is still part of the Vanity Fair France spread, and it is so gorgeous! I especially love how soft she looks in this image.

This is Kristen at her element. A little bit tough yet still sexy. Check out the slight ombre in her hair and check out those seriously sultry lace-up heels. Instant shoe lust.

This precisely how you do a tailored look for travel, while still looking comfy and casual. The white sneaks perfectly offsets the trouser and blazer combo. The slight nod to the sporty trend via the side stripe on the pant is genius.


Feather embellished Chanel is always a good idea.


I am in love with this graphic look. This matching sweater skirt just screams modern chic. This look can go from day to night easily too. Stripes all over suits her lithe frame well, and the bold stripes makes her white mani stand out as well.

This Zuhair Murad stunner is an unforgettable red carpet moment for K-Stew. The beautiful nude color, the peek-a-boo lace, vintage corsetry, and satin waist detail, is there anything I don’t love? The Veronica Lake waves parted to one side, and the strong red lip takes this look over the top. 


The master at trouser dressing, she wows in this geometric cut out number. This should be a lesson for all. Sometimes, an LBD just won’t cut it. Take the risk and gamble on a cutting edge design.

So which look did you love? Her tough chic looks or the glamour girl style?
