Carpets & Candids: Jessica’s shiny green dress

Lainey Posted by Lainey at January 6, 2016 15:44:48 January 6, 2016 15:44:48

It’s that old Hollywood look. A shiny satin/sateen stress, in champagne or red or green, as seen here on Jessica Chastain, subtly falling off the shoulder showing a hint of skin, sensually but not scandalously. Never been my favourite. But when it’s done right, you can’t really object. Full Article

Pleated skirts are showing up a lot. I really, really want one. And pleats look SO great in green. Look at this beautiful skirt here. You could wear this outfit for years. It’ll never go out of style.  Full Article

Duana Names: You May Already Be A Winner

Duana Posted by Duana at January 4, 2016 19:20:51 January 4, 2016 19:20:51

Hi Duana, My husband and I are expecting baby 2 (Jan 15). We aren't sure if we will be having a boy or girl. We have a few options for a girls name but we agreed previously we would call our second son Jack. Our first son is named Sam after one of my family members. The back story is my great-grandfather was named Sampson but went by Sam. Full Article

Don’t love the oatmeal tank underneath. But this suit. Drawstring pants. The hem of the pants falling to exactly the right point on her ankle. And the perfect slouch of the jacket. All of it overcomes the material. Not my favourite, this material.  Full Article

Carpets & Candids: Saoirse’s New Year mixed print

Lainey Posted by Lainey at January 4, 2016 16:12:08 January 4, 2016 16:12:08

Right now, it seems like it’s Brie Larson who has the edge on Saoirse Ronan for Best Actress Oscar. On style though, well, Saoirse’s been bringing it for years. She’s been a Rodarte favourite forever. And I love the way she eased into New Year award schedule, with so many events back to back to back, in Palm Springs in this pretty Duro Olowu mixed print dress. Full Article

I don’t actually mind the suit. It was New Year’s Eve. It was shiny. It was well-tailored. It’s so much better than the dresses she wears to award shows. But then she had to go ruin it with that hair. Please promise me you will never, ever, ever ask for your hair to be styled like this… EVER. Full Article

I don’t miss having to wear glasses. But I do miss wearing glasses. Does that make sense? Duana came over last week wearing her new glasses and looked so f-cking good I was like, f-ck it, I need some fresh frames. Look at these ones on Rihanna. You like? Because I LOVE.  Full Article

Brie Larson is definitely going to be nominated for an Oscar. So it’s maybe time for an elite style team? The dress is fine. Fine and forgettable. The makeup, however, is all kinds of 15 years ago. As Jordy just put it, “It’s very Friends”. Exactly. And Brie Larson is so refreshingly of the moment, I don’t know why they’re trying to make her look like she’s a throwback. Full Article

Hi Duana, I'm pregnant with my second child. First is a girl - Nola Adele. We aren't sure what we're having, but used to favour the name Brynn for a girl; however, that is out since she'd have the unfortunate initials of B.O.  For a boy, we both like the name Cole, but haven't a clue about a middle name (perhaps Andrew after my Grandfather). Full Article

Hi Duana, So here's the deal. Baby boy due first of January. I have been pretty steadfast on naming him Foster. It's my maiden name and a way to honor my brother who passed away suddenly/tragically when he was 26 (neither me or my parents feel comfortable using my brother's first name). Full Article
