Why Are The Bad Girls So Hip?

I will forever root for the Princess, but it would be unfair to deny these epic evildoers their fair share of credit for the success of the stories.

Angelina Jolie's Last Look For Salt

When I wrote up on Ange earlier, I hadn't realized her "Salt" promo was ending so soon, which is a pity, as I was loving the roll she was on. If I had waited a few hours, I would have caught her last look. Berlin Premiere: Max Azira Dress

I think this, along with her Pamella Roland look, might just be my favorite of all her looks on this tour. Why? Because she exudes confidence, poise, and grace (as usual) I love her hair with this look, and, let's face it, there's something about Angelina Jolie in black that just WORKS.

Style Crush: Dasha Zhukova

Dasha Zhukova is another super stylish, super young, super cultured, super cool, young Russian entrepreneur and socialite. Sports fans might know her as just the ex-girlfriend of former tennis ace Marat Safin, or the current girlfriend of Roman Abramovich (the owner of Chelsea Football Club). However, most of us girls have her and her brand, Kova and T., to thank for the advent of leather leggings.

Angelina Jolie: The Sound of Redemption.

Angelina Jolie started the "Salt" promotional tour in North America, looking great, though wearing black. She then had a real downfall of style during the Asian leg of the tour, and returned to stunning best here in Europe.
She surprized me by wearing color, and not her much favoured black. After having "Hummed" at her a few posts ago, this acknowlegdement is in order.
I can't wait to see what else she'll bring us before the end of this tour.

Berlin Photocall: Elie Saab and not a stitch of makeup.

Paris Premiere: Pamella Roland frock and Ferragamo pumps.

Los Angeles Premiere: Emporio Armani

London Premiere: Amanda Wakeley

Moscow Premiere: Atelier Versace

The Truth about Kickass Jewellery

How many times have you had a mediocre outfit taken up a notch by adding some great jewellery? I know I have more times than I care to count. It's so much easier to throw on a skinny jean-simple -tee-all-black-ensemble and clip on a great necklace and an arsenal of wicked braclets to turn the tables. So much easier than worrying about a great outfit from scratch while you should already be out the door.
Dior makes the kind of rings girls could kill for, and posses all the prerequisites to being every fashionista's dream. The pop of color it lends your ensembles, the exellcent attention for detail, the extraordinary design...

I'm a natural born sucker for all things mythological, and a develping sucker for all things Lanvin, this craftmanship HAD to be in my tops. I mean, just look at it, you don't get any grander. If I owned a crazy, chunky, to-die-for Medusa necklace I'd throw it on everything, even Pj's.

I can imagine this Lanvin masterpiece over about a gazillion different basic-what-would-be-blah-outfits-without-it. A fitted sheath dress, skinny jeans and white shirt, a simple name it, she'll jazz it up.

Thank you, gods of jewellery, for saving us from boring outfits.

The outfits that make you go hummmm

Angie, I love you to bits, you're so beautiful you break my heart, you're a wonderful woman and an amazing actress. So tell me, WHY did you wear a potato sack. A BLACK potato sack.
It's a L'Agence potato sack by the way.

Camilla Belle has been missing often on the red carpet, so imagine my disappointment when she shows up with this. I don't like it, I really don't like it. I know it's Carolina Herrera, but the skirt just screams cheap to me, especially the ruffles (shudder). Her hair is too messy as well, and I'm unconvinced with the nude heel.

Jessica Biel in Atelier Versace
I know so many of you love it, but I hate it. First, she removes the train, degrading it to a cocktail dress. Yes, the color is heavenly, the beading is spectacular, and your hair is clean. But you look boxy, and the shoes are a big miss. Not impressed. Also, the more I look at the hem, the more annoyed I get.I NEVER would have had the courage to do that.
