Love the cut out skirt!
Love the pastel colors!
To sum it up, the makeup, hair, styling is so modern yet retro.
The big hair is my favorite!

Immediately fell in love with this outfit.
The army green military jackets are here to stay.
Every girl must own something LEOPARD.

 Meryl Streep and Jean Dujardin at the 84th Academy Awards.

Neon colors are DEFINITELY a must for this spring/summer season.
This is my current obsession.
The jewels, color, and detail can add GLAM to any casual or dressy outfit!

I love everything about her outfit!
The floral scarf with the fur takes a rock'n'roll outfit and makes it feminine.
*sigh* stunning *sigh*

Besides the fact that I would  give an arm, leg, or maybe even consider my hair (nah) to be at Paris Fashion Week, a vacation to Italy doesn't sound so bad either.

Please feel free to virtually travel with me to these amazing locations in Italy and maybe we can meet there in the  future.

OBSESSION: Elie Saab Spring/Summer 2012 show

Have you ever come across a dress so beautiful that you just had to have it without caring about the price or how much debt you will be in? I’m talking about a dress that as soon as you call it your own, you forget that you have negative dollars and overdraft fees in your account.
With the Oscars tomorrow night, we are all anxiously waiting to see what everyone is going to be wearing on the red carpet.  I thought I would share with you one of my favorite couture collections that I would love to see on the red carpet tomorrow.

These dresses are so FABULOUSLY detailed that its embellishments and sparkle make you want to drool!

Outside the runway, the most stylish street stylers show off their own unique ensembles.
