CelebrityStyle File: The 2014 Golden Globes!

The 2014 Golden Globes were certainly a night to remember. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler hosted the extravagant affair (and had us laughing our tails off), Leo FINALLY won, and Jennifer Lawrence totally photo-bombed Taylor Swift and America fell in love with her yet again! We were particularly taken by the incredible looks that graced the carpet this year; the ladies and gents of Hollywood pulled out all the stops!

Lady in Red: Taylor Swift looked classic and demure in a gorgeous crimson Carolina Herrera gown. She completed her effortless look with a bold red lip & finger-wave up-do, and once again, we were swooning!

Gal Pals: Tina Fey & Amy Poehler not only stole the show as the fabulous hostesses, but they also stole the red carpet! Tina was stunning in a rose printed Carolina Herrera, and Amy was an hourglass hottie in a sleek black Stella McCartney!

Downton Dockery: Oscar de la Renta never looked better than last night on the beautiful Michelle Dockery (Downton Abbey)! Her strapless dress was fabulously fit & flare, and was almost as sparkling as her smile!

Seein’ Red: The color of the evening was none other than perfect shades of cherry red, and these ladies wore it well! Lupita Nyong’o was ravishing in Ralph Lauren, Amy Adams was a vision in Valentino, and Julia Louis-Dreyfus nailed it in Narcisco Rodriguez.

Kiss Me Kate: Kate Beckinsale took our breath away in a sequin Zuhair Murad. The shape was to-die-for, the detail divine, and the England native simply glowed!

Darling Details: It was all about the little details for these starlets, and we definitely noticed. Rashida Jones wore a fabulous Fausto Puglisi with beaded palm trees, Kelly Osbourne gave us the bold shoulder in her black Escada (and that sleek hair!), and Elisabeth Moss looked dreamy in her J. Mendel, perfectly patterned from head-to-toe!

Ravishing Reese: Could Reese Witherspoon have looked any more flawless in her floor-length Calvin Klein?!  The blonde bombshell was radiant to say the least. The dress fit her like a glove, and the teal blue was the perfect color against a very red backdrop!

Haute Hermione: Dior was done right on Emma Watson last night! The ever-stylish actress (and keeper of our hearts) sashayed in what appeared to be a lovely coral gown, but one spin and the crowd “oohed and aahed” over the open-back and slim trousers that totally completed the look!

And the Winner Is… None other than the sultry siren Sofia Vergara!  From the moment we laid eyes on the Modern Family actress in her ebony Zac Posen, we knew no one could compare! With side-swept hair and the perfect turquoise blue necklace, we give this beauty an A+!

BeautyStyle Trend: Ombré Hair

 
Ombré hair…does it really need an introduction? This style has come to the forefront of hair trends in the past couple months, and I won’t lie, I love it. I even succumbed to this trend myself.
 

Rocked by Erin Wasson for years, and delivered to us with a more edgy style by Alexa Chung and blogger Rumi Neely, this is the it hair trend of the season. This low maintenance, effortlessness of this hair stye works with basically any texture or tone and it’s highly economical to boot.


Celebrities such as Drew Barrymore, Ashlee Simpson-Wentz, Lily Alridge, Rachel Bilson, and Sarah Jessica Parker have been seen rocking the brown-blonde version of this trend, however the more colorful version of the trend can be seen by platinum blondes transitioning to a variety of colors.
 

What do you think of the ombré trend? Would you try it, or do you think it looks like bad outgrowth? And for giggles, here is a picture of me with my ombre hair.
 

FashionSummer Festival Fashions

It’s that time again, ladies. My favorite season of the year is fast approaching: the season of the summer music festival.

Now music festivals are not only about seeing all your favorite bands in one place. Fashion has become a major staple of the festival scene in recent years. With the appearances of celebrities such as Chloe Sevigny and Drew Barrymore as well as fashion-forward models Agyness Deyn and Lily Donaldson, music festivals are becoming the it-place to be seen.

Not sure where the best festivals are at? Not to worry, most likely you can find a festival in your area. Bonnaroo is held in Tennessee, Coachella near Palm Springs, SXSW in the ever popular Austin, Texas, and Sasquatch in the north of Washington. If you are overseas, Glastonbury is the place to be.

Heading to Glastonbury? Wellies and cut-offs are a staple. Bonnaroo has more of a country style vibe, but wellies will also come in handy here, as it does get wet. Sasquatch is up in northern Washington so keep warm by layering key pieces. Coachella channels the LA style with floral dresses and big hats and boots.

 

Get ready for your festival days with some essential Lulus.com pieces. Romp around Bonnaroo in our Dellal Day Romper, cruise Coachella in the High Tide Maxi Dress by Insight, or even pair the Wild Wild West Top with the Levi’s 501 Cutoff Shorts in Gasoline for the perfect ensemble for any festival.

 

MusicPop! Goes My Heart

The most adorable little polka dot dress came in the Lulu*s warehouse this morning, and I knew it had to be named something special. The bold black and white graphic print reminded me of pop art, which made me think of a little song called: “Pop! Goes My Heart.”

Those of you who have seen the movie, Music and Lyrics, starring Hugh Grant and Drew Barrymore, will know exactly what I’m talking about. Those who have not must watch the hilarious music video below. It stars Hugh Grant as a singer in a fictional eighties band called PoP! Their hit single is the catchy ”Pop! Goes My Heart.”

Ok, now that I’ve got you hooked on the song, you must check out the little number that started it all and go rent the movie!

News“Whip It” Good!

As I sat in the theater Sunday night, I secretly hoped this movie would be good just so I could use the witty title above. However, Whip It far surpassed my expectations. It was AWESOME!

Directed by Drew Barrymore in her directorial debut, and starring Ellen Page of Juno, this movie had every chance of becoming something special, and it sure did.

I can’t even begin to describe how much I loved this movie, but I’m going to do my best.

Ellen Page plays Bliss Cavendar, a small-town girl stuck in a world of beauty pageants, dumb high school pranks and a family that doesn’t understand her. Life trucks along until a shopping trip to Austin, where Bliss is struck by a group of girls who skate happily past, giving out leaflets for a roller derby competition.

Bliss finds a way to attend the competition with the help of her best friend, Pash, played by Alia Shawkat. The story takes off from there, as Bliss befriends a team of hippie punk girls who aren’t afraid to take a punch.

I’d never really thought about roller derby as a sport before, and at first, I cringed at the many falls, cracked ribs and bloody noses involved with the game. By the end of the movie, however, I became swept away by the exhilaration of the race and even felt like breaking out my old pair of skates and giving them a go again.

Ellen Page gives an amazing performance and is steadily becoming one of my new favorite actresses. Drew Barrymore is adorable in this film and did a great job both in front of and behind the camera. Even though some aspects of the plot are fairly predictable, it’s entertaining and touching enough to have you leaving the theater feeling happy and empowered.

So what are you waiting for? It’s time to Whip It. :)
