Red Haute!

Note to Penelope Cruz:
Despite the cold winter weather, you were sizzling at the Nine premiere. The color of this Chanel dress is so captivating, it is hard to notice the gorgeous draping. I can not get over how stunning this color is. Well done Penelope. Also I can't wait to see the movie (much to my boyfriend's dismay).

Note to Readers:
Is it just me or is this color to die for? Maybe I am going out on a limb here, but I think that us mere mortals could also be head-turning show-stoppers in this dress. Not to say that Penelope isn't wearing this dress well, but imagine showing up to a formal Christmas party in this number. I think I will dream of this exact scenario tonight.

Have fun with your holiday wardrobe. This goes to show a little color and glamour go a LONG way.

Change it Up!

Note to Taylor:
YOUR HAIR IS STRAIGHT! I think you are darling, but my one complaint (and it is a small one) is that your hair always has the same curled look to it. The curls are great, but I have been looking for some diversity, and voila! Don't abandon the curls entirely, just alternate a few new looks here and there.

Also, if you are dating Taylor Lautner, bravo. I saw New Moon, and he is looking BEYOND good.

PS. I love your scarf.

Note to Readers:
Sometimes it is easy to get into a style rut. Whether it be hair, clothes, shoes or accessories, sometimes when something works we stick to it.

I, for example, can not wear jeans that aren't skinny or cigarette leg anymore. I have been wearing them for so long that if I put on a different silhouette I feel like I am wearing baggy bellbottoms. I am working on it though, I promise.

So... the key is not to abandon your trademark item (or look) entirely, just to mix some variety into the look. Like Taylor straightening her curls. We have to keep our looks from getting boring.
