We Can't Stop Thinking About These Accessories Of The Week
Huffington Post - about 3 years
Even though we witnessed some pretty amazing outfits this weeks, it's the accessories we're still thinking about. Between Sarah Hyland's bold pumps, Selita Ebanks' glitzy statement earrings and Vanessa Hudgens' round sunglasses, we were definitely left with inspiration to last us through the month. Selena Gomez's sunglasses Just when you think her loose white blouse and ripped jeans can't get any cooler, she throws on these awesome sunnies! Vanessa Hudgens' sunglasses We think this is one John Lennon tribute the legend might have appreciated. Felicity Huffman's hat We're so bored of fedoras, this straw hat is such a nice change of pace. Plus, it helps to protect her skin from the sun. Ali Larter's clutch This oversized orange clutch adds the perfect pop of color to her otherwise neutral outfit. January Jones' belt It's not often that we see female celebs wearing belts with their jeans, but we love this look on Jones. The gold hardware toughens up her pre ...

Huffington Post - about 3 years
A vacant warehouse in the Meatpacking district was transformed into a modern day disco for the kickoff of alice + olivia (with founder/creative director, Stacey Bendet) and artist David Choe's new philanthropic venture, the Kindness Project. Inside the warehouse stood a variable feast for the eyes as partygoers were treated to a blast from the past, psychedelic 60s style. Models with blonde bob wigs and oversized round glasses were painted head-to-toe by Choe in vibrant glow-in-the-dark body paint. To the right, an alice + olivia gown painted in Choe's "A Woman And A Monkey" (the official symbol of the Kindness Project) hung from the ceiling amidst a gaggle of silver disco balls. Close by stood the bar bustling with specialty cocktails enjoyed by a who's who of the NYC social scene including celebs: Maxwell, Nicky Hilton and Selita Ebanks. DJ Hannah Bronfman kept the party upbeat and there was even a burlesque performer by the name of Hazel Honeysuckle. I had a chance to ...

Props, Kate Hudson
Huffington Post - over 3 years
This week's best-dressed celebrities experimented with lots of texture and detail. Kate Hudson stunned in an embellished Balmain number, while Olga Kurylenko spiced up an otherwise neutral dress with some intricate detailing. Though there were many stars who hit it out of the park this week, Sonam Kapoor stole the show in a stunning Gucci dress. The teal color was perfection against her skin tone, while a belt helped to give her drool-worthy curves. Check out our picks, and let us know if you agree! Kate Hudson in Balmain What makes this look so successful is the expert proportions. The chunky embellishments weren't too heavy because of Hudson's exposed skin, and though the hemline was exceedingly short, it was well balanced-out by her conservative top. Kiernan Shipka in RED Valentino If only all 13-year-olds were this well-dressed! Shipka is turning heads once again in a cute, textured white dress and a pair of trendy metallic heels.

Here's Where Model Scouts Go To Spot New Talent In New York City
Business Insider - over 3 years
We’re pounding the pavement of Times Square in search of the world’s next top model…at McDonald’s. Who knew the fast food chain would also be a place where model scouts like Lanny Zenga from One Management regularly scout for fresh faces? It sounds counterproductive but Zenga explains that it’s these types of chain locations located in New York’s most touristy locations (Times Square, Herald Square) that a scout can find a foreign or midwestern beauty. Other prime locations: H&M in Herald Square, the Zara next to Bryant Park. “Seriously, if you want to be discovered as a model, just go to these places, it’s where model scouts go,” he quips. It’s summertime in the city and a prime time for scouts like Zenga to find fresh faces to add to their model boards. “In the winter you can’t really make out the body of a girl who’s bundled up,” he says. “In the summer girls really can’t hide their bodies and we get to see what they really look like.” Zenga has been working as a s ...

Start your holiday weekend on a stylish not and check out the week's best style moments... Kelly Rowland looked lovely at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards this past Sunday. The singer wore a silver gown by Rami Al Ali, which featured a high-slit to show of her gorgeous gams. Overseas, supermodel Joan Smalls stunned on the Cannes red carpet in a floor-sweeping, plunging-necklined, ivory-hued, lace gown by Emilio Pucci. This chick could honestly wear a burlap sack and she'd still top our list of style stars. Meanwhile, former Victoria's Secret model Selita Ebanks, was also in France turning heads. Selita opted for a revealing (sideboob alert!) pink tulle gown while attending amfAR’s 20th Cinema Against AIDS Gala. Check out those beautiful ladies and the rest of the week's style stars--including Janet Jackson, Kerry Washington and Will Smith in the slideshow below.

Selita Ebanks Channels Her Naughty Side
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
Pop quiz: what do you get when you cross a horse farm, a gorgeous musician, Selita Ebanks, and lots of leather? One bad*ss editorial, that's what! We've missed Selita on the fashion circuit. Between her relationship with TV personality Terrence J, appearance on Celebrity Apprentice, and work with New Yorkers for Children and Women's Coalition for Empowerment and Opportunity, we imagine the model must just not have had the time. But this is a new year with a seemingly new focus if her WestEast magazine spread is any indication.

PHOTOS: Is This The Most Popular Dress In Hollywood?
Huffington Post - about 4 years
In Hollywood, it's a stylist's nightmare to send a celebrity client to a red carpet event in a dress that's -- gasp -- already been worn by someone else. Of course, there are exceptions. Like the ubiquitous Stella McCartney peplum dress. The latest star to jump on the bandwagon? Chrissy Teigen. The model turned up to fête Sports Illustrated's Swimsuit Issue last night in the chic LBD from Stella's fall 2011 collection. As usual, our Twitter crush rocked it. Like we said, Chrissy was following in some fashionable footsteps. Best friend to the designer Liv Tyler sported a polka-dot version back in 2011, while model Brooklyn Decker wore hers just a few months ago. Kim Kardashian even gave the popular peplum a spin during a visit to the Ivory Coast. Obviously, this dress has gotten a lot of mileage the past few seasons. Don't think we're trying to throw some shade on these ladies -- hey, if we could get our hands on the look, we'd probably enlist ourselves in the Stella M ...

PHOTOS: The Week's Best Style Moments

Red is the quintessential color for the holiday season and it looked amazing on actress Sanaa Lathan as she stepped out in Los Angeles on Thursday night for The Hollywood Foreign Press Association And InStyle's Miss Golden Globe 2013 party. The actresses curves were on full display in the tight off-the-shoulder frock. A pair of leopard print heels, gold jewelry and a high bun completed the look. Selita Ebanks rocked red as well for the Unicef SnowFlake Ball in New York City on Tuesday evening. The model-cum-swimsuit designer, who announced this week that she is hanging up her Victoria's Secret angel wings for good, looked stunning in the Romona Keveza silk organza and silk crepe gown. Model Jourdan Dunn lit up the black carpet at the 58th London Evening Standard Theatre Awards in London this week. The evening was hosted in association with Burberry, so of course the Jourdan wrapped herself in a glitzy number from the British fashion house. The strapless gold dress is f ...

Selita Ebanks Unofficially Retires From Being A Victoria's Secret Angel
Huffington Post - about 4 years
Selita Ebanks seems to make headlines these days for two reasons: 1. She makes best-dressed lists OR 2. She punches fellow models in the face. So it came as a bit of a surprise to us to hear her latest public declaration had to do with her actual modeling career. The model-slash-swimwear designer caught up with The Cut at last night's UNICEF SnowFlake Ball where she unofficially announced her retirement from her role as a Victoria's Secret Angel, specifically walking in the annual blowout fashion show. At the ripe old age of 29, Selita told the site that she's over the whole thing: “You have to show up in your panties, and you have to walk and be pleasant and say hi to everyone and hope that you’ve still got it. I didn’t make it [this year]. Go figure! I’ve done, what, five, six shows? I’ve experienced my V.S. days.” For what it's worth, Selita, auditioning for the Victoria's Secret show sounds pretty annoying. But hey, at least they gave her a shot. Anna Wintour in ...
