Kristen Stewart and Kirsten Dunst ‘On the Road’ premiere

 

 

Kristen Stewart looks amazing in this Erdem dress standing next to Kirsten Dunst at the New York premiere of On The Road. The runway version is a bit longer and her stylist clearly opted for a more age appropriate length (though it is pretty short). I’m intrigued by Kristen’s recent red carpet outfit choices, she’s choosing some risqué pieces. It doesn’t seem like her. Her sheer Zuhair Murad gown at the Los Angeles Twilight premier also caused quite a stir. She doesn’t appear to be going for a sexy, it’s just different –a change from her normal converse and semi-goth look. Her overall look is really clean and chic. Light makeup, hair pulled back, minimal jewelry. It works.

Get Bonded

OPI’s latest collaboration with the James Bond 007 movie Skyfall is absolutely gorgeous. The colors are rich and dark and after seeing the movie, I can tell they are an accurate representation of the film. You can buy the colors individually or there are 2 gift sets: one is a 4-pack of mini’s and the other is a 3-pack of full sized colors. I chose the 3-pack because I have the OPI Nicki Minaj minis and I found them hard to work with and one of the glitter colors dried up: not worth it. Most importantly the 3-pack comes with the color “Skyfall” which is a essentially oxblood aka hottest color of the moment. I’m currently wearing the color and love the look. I didn’t see “The Man with The Golden Gun,” which is the color with gold foil in honor of the 50th anniversary of the James Bond franchise. But I’m not sure it’s worth the $30 price tag. Regardless, if you only chose one color from the collection pick up Skyfall.

NYmag: The Cut, and other things…

I seem to have a bit of downtime lately. I’ve been reading blogs like crazy, gotten into chia seeds, baked cupcakes for a friend, and written quite a lengthy article for an upcoming September issue of a digital magazine (more details to come once published, of course). While perusing beaucoups of blogs I’ve come across New York Magazine’s new site for The Cut which is their newly launched fashion site. It is truly amazing, every article is extremely interesting and quite edgy to say the least (some articles I didn’t dare open at work). Everyone should give it a browse, you won’t regret it.

Something else caught my eye as I was browsing site though: there were haunting photos of a young girl which reminding me of Catherine Earnshaw of Wuthering Heights. I looked closer at the photos and discovered they were never-before-seen vintage contact sheets of Angelica Houston circa 1967. The photos are absolutely captivating and were taken on the set of her father’s movie in Ireland. They are lovely, and below is a picture of a small portion of the larger sheet. You truly feel like photographer when looking at the full screen image The Cut launches for you, so take advantage.

 

The Girl

HBO’s latest project is The Girl, a movie that explores the relationship between Alfred Hitchcock and leading lady Tippi Hedren (The Birds). Sienna Miller and Toby Jones take on the lead roles in this exciting venture. HBO plans to release the movie in October, for Halloween perhaps? Regardless I cannot wait. I’ve been fascinated with Hitchcock since I wrote about Grace Kelly for my magazine internship last summer. He was certainly an interesting man and I look forward to seeing Jones’s portrayal of the master of suspense. Sienna’s ability to transform, and of course the fashion, have also caught my eye. Below are a few photos that have recently surfaced from the film.

 

 

Style Icon: Ali MacGraw

I took a style quiz today on MSN and was most surprised when I was aligned with 70s style maven Ali MacGraw. I’m ashamed to say I had not heard of her until today. So naturally I did some research and was proud the MSN style icon generator told me my style is like Ali’s. She’s a gorgeous woman best known for her role in Love Story, oh and she also was married to the equally good-looking Steve McQueen.
