Have you been a die-hard Gossip Girl fan from the beginning? When Dan first laid eyes on Serena at the train station, when Blair realized Serena was with Nate behind her back, when Jenny hardly wore any make-up, when whats-her-face Vanessa still existed?! They were so young 6 years ago, and we grew up along with them.
I can’t decide what I am going to be missing the most, the magnetic chemistry of Chuck and Blair, Serena’s fashion, Dan’s jaw line and ever changing hairstyle, or all the surprise guest appearances by people from Rachel Zoe to Florence and The Machine…
If you haven’t watched the GG finale yet stop here, SPOILER ALERT!
What did you think of the finale? Was it every thing you had hoped for? I kinda wished that it was a full 2 hour episode. Even though it was lovely to see the cast chat about their characters, and hear to Ed Westwick talk in his real voice, 2 hours would have been nice. But I’ll take what I can get.
Did you predict who Gossip Girl was? My money was on Jenny, but Dan totally makes sense. Dan is the writer and all! And what did we think of TWO weddings within one hour? I must say, Chuck and Blair didn’t hold a candle to Dan and Serena; FOR ONCE!
Not sure how I feel about Chuck and Blair having a little 4-year-old running around, (did you picture them having kids?) seeing Jack and Georgina get cozy, and realizing that it took Dan and Serena that long to tie the knot. The “cutsy” happily ever after ending took me a bit off guard. I mean, I’m glad they wrapped everything up in a nice little bow, but what’s Gossip Girl without a little shock and drama?
Did anyone else think that kiss was a little weak for Chuck and Blair? Also, NO ONE should wear a baby blue and white tux. Not even Chuck. However, Blair looked absolutely stunning in Elie Saab!
Now Dan, when he entered the room in that killer suit with his hair slicked back, WOW. Than Serena, in typical fashion, comes out in a borderline “too flashy” wedding dress; another WOW. Did anyone else think it’s a little bitter-sweet these two aren’t together in real life anymore? (Not that I’m not happy for Blake and Ryan)
So now I’m not sure what is going to fill my Monday night with teen drama? I feel the need to clarify, I am no longer a teenager but something about this New York fantasy world of drama has always appealed to me. (Sex in the City anyone?) I’m trying the show Revenge on for size; the Hampton’s are close to New York right? I’m curious what Carrie Diaries is going to be like. The trailers look terrible, I’m going to hope it’s not!
Will you too be grieving the loss of Gossip Girl? What will you miss the most? Who will you miss the most?
If you are about to listen on your computer, crank the speakers! Or better yet, plug into great sounding speakers…this song is meant to listen to loud and on surround sound!
I’m getting pumped to see Florence + The Machine this Friday at Deer Lake Park!! I saw her before she got super popular at a much smaller venue, and she was AMAZING! If you get the chance, go see her. Worth every penny. She has once of those voices that on a recording you can’t even get the full emotion, it has so much more impact live. It will give you chills…enjoy the song!
Oh man, I cannot WAIT for this movie to come out!! It’s directed by the brilliant Baz Luhrmann, who also directed two of my favorite movies, Romeo and Juliet and Moulin Rouge, and this film looks like its going to be of similar styling! I can watch this trailer over and over again. I love Dicaprio as Gasby, and Toby Maguire is the perfect Nick Carraway.
A few months back I decided I wanted to read the book, The Great Gatsby and I was surprised how great of a read it was. I was getting into reading classics and after reading MOST of Anna Karenina I switched to Gatsby…much easier! Than I rented the Robert Redford film from 1974- and boy do I get now why all the ladies-of-a-certain-age love their Robert Redford. Handsome devil he was!
Back to this version…have you looked at the fashion? I wish I could pull off the flapper dress, but the ’20′s simply were not made for curvy girls in fashion! (The 50′s and 60′s are more suited to our types!) But all the head bands, and hats look amazing! I’ve been obsessed with head-gear lately and I wonder if this movie will bring a surge in head wraps and head bands again. Side note, doesn’t Carey Mulligan make a beautiful Daisy?
Are you as excited to see this LONG AWAITED film as I am? With this cast I’m sure Baz Luhrmann will redeem himself after his last major film, Australia. Yikes. I still love him, because that wasn’t his fault! Nicole Kidman went overboard on the botox and couldn’t express anything on her face, which is really too bad- seeing as she was/is so beautiful and a great actress. There is my tangent…so here are some pretty killer head wraps I found online at Urban Outfitters. Would you wear one?
Every year Cannes comes around and Diane Kruger rules the red carpets. She stuns. Something about her style is just so effortless yet glamorous. Can you believe she is her own stylest? She defiantly gets extra points for that!
Here is Diane at the film festival Jury Photo Call wearing a Versus’ dress and Jimmy Choo shoes.
Dianne takes over the Cannes Opening Ceremony! She is wearing a custom Giambattista Valli Haute Couture gown.
Neutrals seems to be the theme of this post, but these female celebs are popping their looks with killer shoes, bold sunglasses, and great handbags. Which of this week’s celebrity styles are your favorite?
LeeLee Sobieski **Black is the New Black Favorite**
As most of you know, I am a huge fan of Kate Winslet. She never disappoints. Kate always looks like a million bucks on the red carpet! Here she is at the premiere of Titanic 3D looking absolutely fabulous. (Seriously, how does she do it? She seems to be getting BETTER looking with age!)
Kate is wearing a Jenny Packham gown and Charles Goode for Goode & Son Jewelry.
Its Friday and I thought we’d take a peek at this weeks hottest fashion! Looking back at celebrity street style and red carpet fashion, which is your favorite ensemble of the week?
What a great edgy look for guys to try out! (**Tip: Don’t wear socks when your ankles are exposed!**)
Michelle Williams in Valentino.
She is positively glowing! Love this color on her.
January Jones in Jenny Packham.
Channeling a more 1960′s look, I am loving the ice blue on her and the pink streak in January’s hair!
Elizabeth Banks in Bill Blass and Jennifer Lawrence Ralph Lauren Collection.
The yellow is a fun bold choice for Elizabeth, and Jennifer is wearing the perfect dress to accentuate her small waist.
Liam and Chris Hemsworth.
Liam is classic with black and white, while Chris is a bit more casual with his suit. Chris has my personal favorite look of the week. Its versatile for all men. You can just modify it with jeans to make it a bit more casual, or dress it up with an unbuttoned white dress shirt.
Beyoncé with baby Blue.
Loving those sunglasses and flats Beyoncé is wearing! YES that’s Beyoncé in flats?!
Drew Barrymore with her finance.
Always a fan of Drew. Pretty sure I could make this outfit happen tomorrow, all I’d need to do is make a quick run to H & M for some teal pants!

March 23rd brings us the release of the book turned movie The Hunger Games, and I thought I’d get you excited with some fashion looks from the film. This post is inspired by our favorite tribute Katniss Everdeen. Personally I am looking forward to seeing Jennifer Lawrence take on the roll, I think after seeing her in Winter’s Bone that we know she will do it justice. Are you as excited for the movie as I am?
Are you anticipating the return of Mad Men on March 25th as much as I am? Have you been going through Don Draper drama withdrawal? Do you miss the click-click-click of the typewriters or the clank of the ice cubes hitting the whiskey glass?
One of the things I miss most about Mad Men is the fashion. Don always is looking super dapper, but its the ladies fashion that always grabs my eye. Which female lead is your favorite? Do you love the sexy Joan, the classic Betty or the modest Peggy?
Jennifer Morrison hit up the Paley Center For Media’s PaleyFest honoring her show Once Upon A Timewearing a menswear “inspired” tuxedo. What do you think of Jennifer’s menswear look? Can she pull it off?
