Why Did You Wear That: Stop Traffic

kirsten smith nycOkay, let’s be serious, I’ve never been accused of being the type of beauty who could stop traffic, but it was fun to pretend.  And sometimes, a pair of fabulous shoes and leather shorts are all it really takes to get the brakes pumping.   I love the contrast of pairing rocker like leather shorts with a clean tailored white blouse.  The contradictions continue with the styling of hair in a tousled top knot and strapping on studded sandals.  You may not stop traffic, per se, but you’re sure to turn a few heads.

Girl Crush: Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf?

My what big eyes you have… I’ve loved Amanda Seyfried since she played the dopey Karen Smith in Mean Girls alongside Lady Lohan, herself.  So what a perfect choice she was for the storybook turned mega movie, Red Riding Hood, released earlier this month.  With classic fairytale features, they couldn’t have cast a better beauty for little Ms. Hood.

It doesn’t take much for Amanda to look lovely.  With gigantic green eyes, perfectly porcelain skin, and hair that dreams were made of, it would really be hard for this stunning starlet to look bad.  Her red carpet style is simple, understated, and very sexy.  She knows her legs are her best feature and she isn’t afraid to show them off (smart girl).  During her downtime, Ms. Seyfried can be spotted around town with dog, Finn and her signature sunglasses.  Her style is always effortlessly chic.

1. American Apparel The Wool Cape, $170, 2. Ray-Ban XL Wayfarer, $145, 3. DOMA Detachable Hood Leather Jacket, $598, 4. Brian Atwood Lana Patent Peep Toe Pumps, $525, 5. Frederic Fekkai Brilliant Glossing Cream, $32, 6. Banana Republic Coy Combat Boot, $119.99, 7. Ralph Lauren Collection Ruffle Washed Linen Dress, $1,498, 8. Lanvin Plisse Dress, $1,975, 9. Benefit Dandelion, $28

…The better to see you with, my dear.
