Stylish Stars: Blake Lively

Blake Lively attended Michael Kors’ Spring 09 fashion show wearing one of the designers freshest and most beautiful looks from the collection.  Even though this was back in September of last year (practically decades in the fashion world), I only saw it in my February issue of In Style.  Blake looks absolutely stunning here and I love that she’s following the “show the legs, put away the cleavage” (or vice versa) rule. 

In my opinion, no American designer does women’s ready-to-wear as well as Michael Kors.  This dress embodies that aesthetic perfectly.  The classic sheath silhouette gets a bit of a shake-up with the non-traditional take on pattern.  

From what I hear, this dress won’t be available to purchase until April so start saving your benjies now!

After looking at this dress a little longer, it occurred to me that it was slightly similar to one in my very own closet.  This is my 2007 Royal Ascot dress from Coast in London.  I’ve always wanted to be a designer’s muse.  Michael Kors?  Any chance you’re accepting applications for a muse-in-training?

Stylish Stars: Keri Russell

Keri Russell is featured in the January 2009 issue of In Style magazine and I especially loved this ensemble:

I think the beauty of this look is how it’s so put-together, yet it comes off incredibly relaxed.  The most striking elements are the red in the shirt which adds a punch of color to the otherwise neutral palette and the chiffon embellishment on the cardigan which lends a romantic aura, offsetting the structured look created by the shirt and jeans.  Beautiful, simple and comfortable.
