If there’s one trend that seems to be going strong long after its recent revitalization, it’s the use of leather. Not only is it appropriate for all seasons these days, it has also taken a colorful turn. This week, four stylish ladies took on leather in color and made our mouths water for more. First up was Rihanna in her gorgeous blue leather skirt which she paired with an equally colorful, printed blouse. Her A-line mini not only turned heads, it made sure all eyes stayed on the always sexy songstress.
Keeping with the sexy theme but adding a little edge to the mix was Heidi Klum in her motorcycle jacket inspired dress. The exquisite navy blue color is a must have and while she kept covered with long sleeves and a knee length cut, the zipper on top let her play with just showing a hint of skin.
Another notable look was Jessica Alba’s gorgeous yellow motorcycle jacket. The stylish star paired her Burberry jacket with a bold Dolce and Gabbana dress and completed her look with a chic purple tote.
If Heidi took rich color up a notch, George Clooney’s gal pal, Stacey Keibler took her leather sheath to another level. Sporting a rich plum hue and a semi-futuristic cut (check out the stitched panels and side flare), the sometimes wrestler looked elegant yet incredibly chic.

We are totally geeking out and seriously counting down the days till Star Trek Into Darkness hits theaters. While anticipation builds for the U.S. premiere, the stars of the movie are taking taking over Europe in style. The leading ladies of the upcoming blockbuster –Alice Eve and Zoe Saldana stepped out in their best couture to fete the film in Berlin. Sporting a gorgeous crimson red gown with a high back slit, Brit, Alice Eve cemented her rising star status on the red carpet. She matched her gown with equally red lips and a fringe bob. Not to be outdone, Zoe Saldana stepped out in a gorgeous embroidered mini that showed off her mile long legs. She completed her look with the perfect accessory –a pair of red soled Christian Louboutins.
Zoe’s stylish European tour started earlier in the day at a photocall for the film. There, she joined co-stars Alice Eve, Simon Pegg, Zachary Quinto, Chris Pine and director J.J Abrams in a midriff baring gray Calvin Klein number and nude heels.

How do you know that spring is officially here? By the plethora of “white looks” that slowly take over the red carpet. This past week, white was the color du jour. Model Karlie Kloss showed off some serious skin in an all white look while attending the MTV Movie Awards. Gwyneth Paltrow also opted for white at the premiere of Iron Man 3. Keeping with the theme of light colors, this week was also filled with gorgeous shades of yellow. Olivia Wilde lightened up in an “almost floating” yellow Monique Lhuillier frock while fashion plate Olivia Palermo didn’t disappoint in a bright yellow Katie Ermilio number paired with some super fun Jimmy Choo heels. Here’s a breakdown of the past week in color.
TGIF! In honor of casual Friday and the upcoming weekend, here are 3 quick ways to dress up your favorite graphic tee.

Banana Republic took over The Grove on Tuesday, February 26th in L.A. to launch its third Mad Men inspired capsule collection –60s style. Collaborating with the show’s award winning costume designer Janie Bryant, BR took an official leap into the mod era of the 1960s. The collection features bold colors and prints as well as stand out silhouettes that the mod era is known for. Fronting the campaign and on hand to help guests get mod-ified was super model Coco Rocha, who mentioned that her favorite part of bringing the 60s into our modern world is the excitement of inspiring people to dress up again.
When asked about her favorite pieces from the collection, the self-described “lazy model” (when it comes to dressing up only of course) who has stomped the runway for every high end designer including the likes of Marc Jacobs, Stella McCartney, Louis Vuitton, Christian Lacroix and Emmanuel Ungaro mentioned that she loved the appeal of the mod shirt dress and the striped knit dress which allowed her to transition easily from a simple and chic daytime look to a sexy nighttime look.
Guests at the mod pod were also given the opportunity to create their own mod-meets-modern look using pieces from the collection, while receiving beauty makeovers reflective of the capsule’s aesthetic. The best part? Your favorite look was on the house.
The capsule collection will be available at select Banana Republic retail locations worldwide and online beginning February 27, 2013.
To say that Scandal star, Kerry Washington is having a “moment” is a bit of an understatement. From a hit T.V show to a hit movie (Django Unchained) and let’s not forget her exceptional style run on the red carpet, all the stars are aligned for Hollywood’s current “it” girl. Recognizing that it is indeed her moment, the actress who plays crisis management consultant Olivia Pope on “Scandal,” and serves on President Barack Obama’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities was honored with 3 awards at the 44th Annual NAACP Image Awards this past weekend in Los Angeles.
Sporting a glorious pastel hued lace Oscar de la Renta gown and nude Christian Louboutin pumps, Kerry was accompanied by her proud parents on the red carpet. Her soft, feminine look was completed with a light pink Kotur box clutch and equally soft hair and make-up. What do you think of Kerry’s look? Are you as enamored with her color blocked Oscar de la Renta gown as we are? Share your thoughts below…
Tangerine is out and Emerald Green is in. It’s official, Pantone has announced the regal color that is Emerald Green as the official color of 2013.

She finished off her look with a mini pompadour, wine lips and accessorized with a simple gold chain.
