(Actual photo of my friend Jill)

Note to Readers:
My girl, Jill is going to be on ABC's Wipeout tonight! Tune in and check her out. Jill is the epitome of a beautiful California Surfer Girl, and I can't wait to see her on the Wipeout obstacles. This post may not be fashion related, but I think it is awesome that Jill tried out and made it on the show. I can't tell you how many times I have watched a show and thought to myself, "I would love to try that". I love that Jill actually went for it. Being fun and spontaneous enough to be on a televised game show, definitely fashionable in my book.

Note to Jill:
I can't wait to watch you tonight. You really are one of the coolest people I know. Whether it be a random dance party in your mom's 80s jazzercise outfits, practicing tricks on the indo-board, or going to the Ellen Show, you are always one of the most fun people to be around that I know. I love you, and good luck! (even though it is already filmed and over with, I am dying to see how far you make it!)

Jill dominated and won a cool $50,000. This keeps getting more and more awesome. Way to make us proud Jilly!

What's Better than a Wedding?

A Royal Wedding!!!
Note to Sweden's Crown Princess Victoria:
Congrats on your big day Saturday! I hope that you are off enjoying a perfect honeymoon somewhere with your new husband. I love the simplicity in the design of your shoulder-bearing Par Engsheden wedding gown. I think it was wise to go with a sophisticated and sleek design, considering the lengthy train of your dress. Also, I like that your dress was subtly sexy but not overtly revealing. Something about a royal wedding with a backless or cleavage bearing gown does not quite fit. The best thing you wore on your wedding day, besides your killer tiara, is your radiant smile.

PS. I LOVE that your husband wore his glasses on your wedding day. Very GQ, if you ask me.

Note to Readers:
As I am looking through the photos of the guests at this wedding, I can't help but feel a little bit envious of the tiaras, adorning many of the womens' heads. I wonder if the tiara-less guests felt inferior to those wearing the tiaras. If I were invited, I might wear one regardless of status. Do you really think that someone would have the audacity to ask me if I was really a princess or queen of somewhere? If they did, and I honestly replied, do you think I would be asked to remove it?

Hmmmm.... I guess I am a little rusty on my Royal Wedding etiquette.

Note to the Lakers:
YESSSSS! Nicely done tonight! I appreciate that you thought the only thing that would look better on you than purple and gold, is a championship ring. You guys sure know how to accessorize.

Note to the Bryant Family:
I couldn't find a picture, but the sequined Laker dresses on your little girls were precious. I can't say the same about the bedazzled leather jacket that Vanessa (Bryant) sported. It is one thing to wear your husband's team colors, but I find it hard to believe that was the best option. Or maybe it was a friend's design, and you felt like you had to wear it? Kind of like that Seinfeld episode with the puffy pirate shirt? Yeah, let's go with that theory.

ANYWAY... Go Lakers! Holla.

Loving Lea

Note to Lea Michele:
I absolutely love your gown for last night's Tony Awards. That Zac Posen really knows how to make a dress. The seams on the bodice are gorgeous, and don't get me started on how much I love the color! It reminds me a lot of this stunning look. I like that you kept your hair and accessories simple, so they didn't compete with your gown. You remind me of Sandra Bullock in this photo, and that is a good thing. Also, I like the new bangs. Nicely done.

Note to Readers:
As you could tell by my gushing above, I liked a lot of things about this look. The most important thing, when you are wearing a bold color is to make sure the color looks good on you. Sometimes I will love an item of clothing because of a standout color, but when I try it on, the color just doesn't work with my skin tone. Just because you like something on the hanger, does not necessarily mean you should get it.

I highly recommend trying on new colors, because sometimes colors you don't think will work on you will, and vice-versa.

Also, I haven't watched Glee, but it seems like people love it. Do you think I should get into it?

Maybe I am bragging...

Note to Readers:
Do you remember when I blogged about this photo shoot? Well it turns out one of the photos is now gracing the cover of a German magazine. I am so excited I can hardly contain myself, the first photo that I styled to end up on a cover. What makes it even better is that I will always remember my first cover was with one of my favorite models, one of my favorite makeup artists, and (you guessed it) one of my favorite photographers.

Now... is anyone going to be in Germany this month? I would love a few copies!

UPDATE: For Nicole, the open cardigan was from Urban Outfitters, so definitely affordable. They don't have that exact one anymore, but I found this one, which is the same idea. Happy hunting!

Supermodel Ali Stephens is hosting an amazing event tomorrow (JUNE 8th) at Fairmont Park in Salt Lake, starting at 6:30 pm. There will be a skate exhibition with pro-skaters, live bands, an unveiling of a mural, all to celebrate world ocean day.

If you are in the area you should check it out. They will also have limited edition t-shirts, co-designed by Ali herself. I spoke with her about the event, and she is really passionate about raising awareness about Ocean Conservation. As a lover of the beach, I fully support the cause!

Go check it out, you can thank me later.

Gwyneth Does it Again...

Note to Gwyneth:
How do you do it? The red carpet at the CFDA awards was a tough line up to compete with, but you definitely were a standout. You keep looking better and better, and you looked amazing to begin with. I love that you can change your look a lot (going from a sophisticated suit, to an ethereal white gown, to looking downtown chic in jeans, to bohemian in your casual clothes) but you never look anything less than elegant and classy.

Le sigh. I love the not so basic black Michael Kors dress, with the sleek ponytail and bronzed skin. No wonder your husband writes such amazing songs, you are quite a muse!

Note to Readers:
Am I beginning to sound like a broken record with my Gwen praises? If I am, I apologize, but if she keeps looking incredible I don't see the praise stopping anytime soon.

Who are your fashion goddesses?

MTV Movie Awards

Note to Katy Perry:
Either you don't read my blog, or you are just not paying attention. The latter is probably more likely. Remember when I wrote this post? You have succeeded in making your last look appear classy and demure. Now, I wonder what you will come up with next to make this look better...

Note to Readers:
Am I the only one that does not get the blue wig? I am actually in a serious hair rut right now, but at no point in time do I think that by donning a blue wig it will improve the situation.

On a positive note, I like her shoes and I guess the blue hair brings out her blue eyes?

Pants, Optional

Note to Pop Singers:
When did wearing pants become optional? Honestly, I understand when dancers wear just leotards for functional reasons. My question is, what is the function of wearing lingerie or leotards, combined with stilettos, and an obscene amount of rhinestones or glitter? Some of the worst offenders are Beyonce, Christina Aguilera, and the above, Miley Cyrus who is deciding to rock this trend. (I know Lady Gaga does this too, but I feel like she is in her own fashion world, and I could write a book just about her sartorial selections) I know you are trying to be edgy and wear no pants, but it isn't really edgy when all of you are doing it. Please put some pants on. Merci.

Note to Readers:
I apologize if the above pic is offensive. I am just trying to make a point. Are you all ok with this no pants craze?
