Fashion Déjà Vu: Fergie's Fetish for Neon Accessories Returns | Hollywood yohana

The best way to pop an LBD is through your accessories. Fergie's preferred accessories just so happen to be neon. Would you expect anything less from the high-energy rock star?! Back in the summer, Mrs. Josh Duhamel attended a birthday bash in NYC wearing a simple sheath with a fluorescent yellow cuff and peep-toes, hot pink-accented clutch and bright orange nail polish. Then, at a Black Eyed Peas after-party recently (also in the Big Apple), the singer repeated the look with a Calvin Klein dress, lime pointy pumps and orange Jill Sander clutch.

Hayden Panettiere Foolishly Follows Eva Mendes | Hollywood yohana

Eva Mendes
Eva Mendes has that certain je ne sais quoi. From fringe to resort, she can make any dress look extremely elegant.
That was evident when she attended the Last Night premiere during the Tribeca Film Festival almost a year ago in a red '70s-inspired, silk chiffon Gucci dress. She looked absolutely breathtaking in the flowy number that featured a high-neck, blouson sleeves and cinched waist.

The actress let the fabulous frock take center stage by pairing it with a matching clutch and strappy nude Jimmy Choo platforms. She also played up its retro feel with oversized Van Cleef & Arpels studs and scarlet lip. Long, wavy locks complmented the design's natural movement.
The impeccable Eva in the dress, which can so easily appear costumey on the wrong person, would be a tough act to follow. Enter wrong person, er, Hayden Panettiere.

The Stars Bring on the Black Sequined Magic for the Oscars | Hollywood yohana

Anna Faris, Rose Byrne, Melissa Leo, Alexandra Edenborough, Melanie Griffith

TREND: Black sequined dresses
WHO'S WEARING IT: Anna Faris (Diane von Furstenberg), Rose Byrne (Vivienne Westwood), Melissa Leo (Reem Acra), Alexandra Edenborough and Melanie Griffith (Yves Saint Laurent)
HOW TO WEAR IT: Black is always a safe choice on the red carpet, but when you add sequins to the mix, that's when the magic happens! It's no wonder a plethora of stars shimmered in inky liquid-like dresses on Oscars night. The younger crowd was daring enough to dip their bods in full-length sparkle. Anna went disco-glam in a long-sleeve number. Rose and Alexandra chose more modern and feminine silhouettes—the former in a one-shoulder and the latter in a sweetheart strapless. If head-to-toe black glitz is too dramatic for you, follow Melissa's lead. She opted for a colorblock version with short sleeves that featured gold sparkle above the bust. The strategically placed lighter sequins brightened up her face. Her fellow fiftysomething peer Melanie, meanwhile, limited the flashy trend to a small portion of her gown. Her asymmetrical dress had subtle sequins on the bodice.

Which Leading Lady Got Dressed in the Dark? | Hollywood yohana


This ageless actress has been a repeat offender on our Fashion DUI gallery because her outlandish style doesn't always translate to the masses. Not that she should really care what the peanut gallery says anyways, she's an Oscar-winning treasure. Regardless, she has a penchant for taking the most random, ill-matching pieces from a single designer and throwing them into one kindergarten collage of an ensemble. She defiled the Dolce & Gabbana fashion house when she decided to wear a floral sheath dress with a rose pink cardigan. This could have worked if the sleeves of the dress weren't tackily poking out beneath the cardi. She then lost even more style points when she accessorized with a leopard print handbag.

Alessandra Ambrosio & Kourtney Kardashian Rub Baby Bumps | Hollywood yohana

Alessandra Ambrosio, Kourtney Kardashian
Forget rubbing shoulders—Alessandra Ambrosio and Kourtney Kardashian rubbed bellies at the 20th Annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party in West Hollywood.
We wouldn't be surprised to hear that the two pregnant beauties had a gab sesh before the soiree, because their pale embellished column dresses are so similar!

The Victoria's Secret beauty chose a blush-hued Roberto Cavalli number that featured a thigh-high slit, ruched detailing at the waist and sequined accents. She kept her styling simple, leaving her hair down in loose waves and adding a little flush with maroon lips and cheeks.
The E! reality star, on the other hand, opted for winter white. She chose a long Raoul frock with a metallic neckline, which she paired with Lorraine Schwartz jewels. She also went for a slightly more glam vibe than her expectant pal, finishing off her look with a Cleopatra-esque smoky eye and high updo.

Emma Stone Takes Inspiration From the Bow-tiful Nicole Kidman | Hollywood yohana

Nicole Kidman
Emma Stone

Emma Stone took her cue from one of Tinseltown's favorite redheads when she showed up to the Oscars today wearing a scarlet Giambattista Valli high-neck gown with a dramatic shoulder bow: The bold design was a throwback to the iconic Balenciaga by Nicholas Ghesquiere number Nicole Kidman wore to the Academy Awards in 2007.

Unlike her predecessor, The Help's star pulled her beautiful ginger tresses back into a chic updo, so they wouldn't get lost in her matching dress. (Nic was blonde at the time, so she was able to balance the giant detail by wearing her golden locks to the other side.) Splashes of sparkle were all courtesy of Louis Vuitton.

Giuliana Stuns in White Tony Ward Couture Gown at the Oscars | Hollywood yohana

Giuliana Rancic

On Friday, we were fortunate enough to have some girl time with the one and only Giuliana Ranic at the W Hollywood, where she showed us pics of her three dress options for Tinseltown's biggest night. Suffice it to say, we were beyond thrilled that she went with the white Tony Ward couture gown as her main look. (She wore our other favorite—a white long-sleeve Basil Soda number in the vein of Florence Welch—for E!'s countdown show.)
Bill's better half looked absolutely breathtaking in the, quite literally, angelic dress. Unique Art Deco cap sleeves gave the appearance of wings! The design also featured intricately beaded tulle that went out into a fishtail skirt.

As she shared with us at the pre-Oscar cocktail party, G's religious use of DDF skincare products allowed her to skip foundation. Instead, she enhanced her natural beauty with a little copper shadow on the lids and an Old Hollywood scarlet lip. The babe finished off what was easily one of the best dresses on the red carpet with Palladium Jewelry by Jacob & Co. oversized flower studs and teardrop ring.
The trendsetter predicted that there would be a lot of ivory dresses at the Oscars when we caught up with her. She was right! Click in to see more standout ladies in white.

Shailene Woodley Goes Frumpy in Valentino Couture at the Oscars | Hollywood yohana

Shailene Woodley
Shailene, Shailene, Shailene. Girl, what are we going to do with you?
The young actress has been the darling of this awards season thanks to her turn in The Descendants, but her entrance at the 2012 Academy Awards proves that she's still got a lot of growing up to do.

Ms. Woodley has been ricocheting between hits and misses lately, and unforunately she steered towards the latter with this turn in a Valentino Couture dress that was far too old for her years. Between the off-white hue, long sleeves and grid cut-out bodice, we can't figure out what Shailene was thinking. If we were 20 and invited to the Oscars, we wouldn't want to turn up in a dress fit for a princess—who lived during the Elizabethan era.
Also, are those mini puff balls on the dress? Oy vey.
Shailene, you're gorgeous. You've got a body to die for. Stylists all across Hollywood want to dress you. So, we beg you, stop turning up to red carpet events in dresses grandmothers would swoon over. It's not often that we wish celebrities would show more skin, but please, flash a little leg.

Who Was Your Best Dressed at the Academy Awards? | Hollywood yohana

Emma Stone, Elie Kemper, Stacy Keibler, Michelle Williams
Giuliana Rancic, Milla Jovovich, Penelope Cruz, Angelina Jolie
Every awards season, there's the popular notion of saving your best designer dress for last—and these enchanting eight ladies certainly pulled out all of the stops for their highly anticipated date night with the lust-worthy Mr. Oscar.
Some caught our attention for oozing Old Hollywood charm, such as Milla Jovovich in a white asymmetrical Elie Saab gown and Penélope Cruz in a steel blue Giorgio Armani off-the-shoulder. Others simply blew us away, like Ellie Kemper in a copper Armani Privé column dress and Giuliana Rancic in an ivory Tony Ward couture number.

Then there were those who did what they do best. Michelle Williams, for one, stayed true to her love of vintage-inspired fashions. The blond pixie looked adorable in a red strapless Louis Vuitton peplum floor grazer, which was accentuated with a sparkly bow brooch. At the other side of the unique style spectrum was Angeline Jolie. We still can't get over her vertical pap smear sexy stance in her black velvet Atelier Versace stunner with thigh-high slit.

Celebs Make Us Blush at the Academy Awards | Hollywood yohana

Penelope Anne Miller, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Melissa McCarthy, Kate Mara

TREND: Blush dresses
WHO'S WEARING IT: Penelope Ann Miller (Badgley Mischka), Wendi McLendon-Covey, Melissa McCarthy (Marina Rinaldi) and Kate Mara (Jack Guisso Couture)
HOW TO WEAR IT: Stars were thinking pink at the Oscars! These lovely ladies turned up to the awards show in candy-like confections, with the vibe ranging from super girly to ultra-feminine. Wendi's princess-like tulle gown and Kate's beaded floral number were sweet as can be, while Penelope's sequined halter dress and Melissa's embellished frock screamed sophistication. All of the dresses are gorgeous, and all four girls help emphasize one very important factor: The hue is key. Finding the right shade for your skin tone will make the difference between the dress blending in to your bod or standing out on its own. With looks this frothy, keep accessories light and airy to play up the ethereal vibe.

Amber Valletta’s Wedges Makes Hearts Go Pitter-Patter | Hollywood yohana

Amber Valletta

Shoes can take an outfit go from looking OK to making everyone gasp, "OMG". And this was the case with Amber Valletta when she attended the 14th Annual Costume Designers Guild Awards in Beverly Hills last week. The Revenge actress wore a red Roland Mouret sheath that was simple, but still chic. Overall, the dress was nothing out of the ordinary.

However, after giving her ensemble a second look, we were floored by the fab footwear she sported. Her black Louis Vuitton peep-toe heels seriously looked unreal. We are so used to wedges having a chunky heel, but these looked oh-so luxurious, due to the gold metal. Seriously, these shoes are jewelry for your feet!

Since her kicks were already enough bling, the blonde smartly skipped wearing gems all together. The only thing she needed to finalize her look was a good ol' swipe of red lipstick and having her tresses styled in a chic low bun.

Glamo's Best and Worst Dressed Stars from the Oscars | Hollywood yohana

Melissa McCarthy, Maya Rudolph, Rooney Mara, Sandra Bullock,  Kristen Wiig
The Glam Factory's stylist always has an opinion when it comes to fashion. So, he made sure he was in town for Hollywood's biggest night, so that he could see up close and personal which A-listers dressed to impress—and which ones didn't! Up first, Glamo's worst dressed.
5. Melissa McCarthy: Too much too fast. Over use of fabric and materials. The decision needed to be made on empire waist embellishment OR neckline detailing. Together, they ruined the look.
4. Maya Rudolph: Although the jewel tone color was just gorge. I couldn't tell if the gladiator trend was going to kill us all. She looked like an exiled gladiator. I was left this funny woman pulling a funny on us?!?!
3. Rooney Mara: As much as I love the House the Givenchy, I did not love Ms. Mara in Givenchy. If she were on the runway, then I could maybe be a little more forgiving, but her dress was very ill-fitted and not flattering of a model-esque look alike.
2. Sandra Bullock: She left me feeling like she was not happy to be at the Oscars with her dress choice. While two-toned black and white is on trend—so is a proper fit. Looks like someone missed their fittings during the week!
1. Kristen Wiig: The Bridesmaids star in J. Mendel was, by far, a turn-and-look away moment. Flesh tones can be a gift or a curse. In this case, it was a severe curse! This dress totally matched her skin, and left me feeling like she was pulling a disappearing act on us. Hey! Where'd she go? Oh, OK, just to the top of the worst dress list.

Miley Channels Old Hollywood Glam at Oscar Parties | Hollywood yohana

Miley Cyrus
For any time we've ever written that Miley Cyrus showed too much boob, leg, arm or really any body part, please forgive us. Not only did the lovely lady cover up for last night's 20th Annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party in West Hollywood, she looked striking doing so.

We're well aware that just yesterday we pointed out that 20-year-old Shailene Woodley dressed too old for her age in an off-white Valentino Couture frock for the Oscars, but Miley's Roberto Cavalli gown is on an entirely different level. The floral embroidery, beading and chiffon skirt are intricate and gorgeous, and the gray hue is unexpected.
Could the 19-year-old have opted for something a bit younger or outrageous? Of course she could have. But then that'd be any other day of the week—this was the Elton John fête she was attending! Plus, she ended up at the Vanity Fair party later in the night, which meant the truly needed to be doubly as striking.
Miley Cyrus, Liam Hemsworth

Not only were we enamored by the dress, but her styling was also exquisite. Playing up her new short hair, Miley opted for old Hollywood glam waves and a red lip. She finished off the already dramatic look with equally glam diamond-shaped earrings.  But we have to admit that her best accessory at all was boyfriend Liam Hemsworth.
Both the dress and the evening proved to be a success, with the singer tweeting, "Thank you, Sir Elton John for such a lovely night! Now to Vanity Fair. I love all the glitz and glam of the Oscars and celebrating such talent!"

Our Favorite Beauty Looks from the Oscars | Hollywood yohana

Oscar Faces
Of course everyone spent a lot of time staring at all the gorgeous designer gowns that were everywhere you looked at the Oscars, but we decided to pay some special attention to the diversity of beauty looks on the red carpet. From bright colors to natural tones, we saw every type of beauty routine, and what better place to take notes than at the most anticipated celebrity event of the year.

Angelina Jolie went for the same glamazon look she sported at the Golden Globes, rocking a  fierce red lip and heavy lashes with gorgeous blown out curls. The colorful lip and dark eyes gave her an instantly bold look, and she definitely exuded a lot of sultriness as she strutted down the carpet. Another bold look came from Viola Davis who made a loud statement by sporting her real hair to the Oscars. She admitted that she has always worn wigs at events but decided tonight she would let her natural beauty shine through. The mahogany tint she added complemented her glowing skin flawlessly in addition to the dark liner and glossy lips.

Gywneth Paltrow went for minimalist and natural makeup touches, wearing a nude lip and little eye makeup. Her impeccable skin made this look work for her, and this combined with her white gown gave her an angelic vibe. We especially loved the slick ponytail that doubled as an imitation bob when viewed from the front. Finally, we noticed that cutesy actress Emma Stone hopped on the winged eyeliner trend, deciding to wear the daring look with pink lips and a slicked back bun.

Classic Diamond Chokers Make a Comeback at the Oscars | Hollywood yohana

Cameron Diaz, Michelle Williams, Penelope Cruz
TREND: Diamond choker necklaces
WHO'S WEARING IT: Cameron Diaz (Tiffany & Co.), Michelle Williams (Fred Leighton for Forevermark) and Penélope Cruz (Chopard)
HOW TO WEAR IT: The Oscars is known to have a bevy of actresses sporting beautiful gown—and gems galore! However, this year, celebs decided to opt for simple and classic jewelry. Cameron and Michelle teamed their strapless frocks with diamond chockers. Penélope also took a cue from the blond babes and paired her off-the-shoulder number with a sparkler. This truly is the perfect jewel because it gives just the right amount of glitz to the look, and it doesn't take attention away from the gown! So the next time you have a shindig to attend, don't forget that sometimes less is more.

Taylor Swift Lifts Off (Her Makeup) From LAX | Hollywood yohana

Taylor Swift

Celebrated country crooner Taylor Swift was seen arriving at LAX yesterday completely makeup free. (You actually mean some celebrities are people too and don't show up to the airport dressed for the runway like our girl crush Victoria Beckham?) It was refreshing to witness one of our favorite singing sensations working the natural look and see how fresh-faced the Covergirl spokesmodel manages to be without the help of layers of bronzer and eye shadow. She styled her hair in a simple over-the-shoulder braid and smartly let some loose strands frame her face.

T. Swift may not dress to the nines when she flies but she still gets our jet-setter nod of approval. She went for an effortless retro-chic look, sporting a button-shoulder, maroon and white stripped sweater with camel corduroy pants. The Lorax voice actress tied the casual ensemble together with rather spiffy, wing-tipped saddle shoes. And of course, she wouldn't be a true musician if she didn't

Who Was Your Best Dressed at the Essence Luncheon? | Hollywood yohana

Emma Stone, Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer, Paula Patton, Kerry Washington
At the 5th Annual Essence Black Women In Hollywood luncheon last night, held at the Beverly Hills Hotel, a bevy of actresses rocked winter white outfits.
Emma Stone made her Elie Saab confection her focal point by teaming the frock with nude accessories, including Brian Atwood peep-toe pumps and a clutch. However, Van Cleef & Arpels gems gave the outfit the right amount of sparkle. Following in the Easy A star's footsteps, Viola Davis paired her simple yet chic Victoria Beckham dress with go-to black Salvatore Ferragamo pumps and a slew of gold bracelets.

On a brighter note, Kerry Washington, who isn't afraid of taking fashion risks, opted for a peplum dress by Cushnie et Ochs, which she teamed with look-at-me red Brian Atwood pumps and a matching pout. However, what caught our eye the most was the stunning multicolored Kate Spade clutch— bag envy, indeed!

Like Kerry, Paula Patton also amped up her white Marchesa number by sporting a rouge pucker. And her silver Giuseppe Zanotti heels went perfectly with the metallic trim on the bustline.

Lastly, Academy Awards nominee Octavia Spencer went a tad casual by teaming a white button-down with a custom-made gray leopard-print Tadashi Shoji skirt and purple kickers.
Needless to say, all the gals looked great and we can't wait to see what show-stopping gowns they'll be wearing at the Oscars!

Which Actress Neglected Her Style, But Enhanced Her Lips? | Hollywood yohana


Even though the actress' career is on a hiatus right now, she definitely dressed the part of a bad girl, which isn't a stretch for this notoriously troubled star. Although wearing all-black is usually a safe and chic choice, the blond babe definitely managed to destroy these two notions. Her overall look was too morbid and, well, had nothing special going on. Perhaps, the gal wanted to make everyone's eyes focus in on her newest investment—her seriously overly enhanced pout. C'mon, hon, we are rooting for you to finally get it together!

Malin Akerman Looks Marvelous in Asymmetric J. Mendel Dress | Hollywood yohana

Malin Akerman
We're all about experimenting with fashion, but we have a big problem with dresses that look like a science project! Even though split-personality dresses (the ones that look like two completely different designs were sewn together) often look bizarre, they keep turning up on the red carpet.

The latest style maven to flaunt a borderline Frankenstein frock is Malin Akerman. She attended the "Vanities" 20th anniversary party in Los Angeles earlier this week in a J.Mendel long-sleeve number that was two-thirds printed LWD and one-third LBD. Surprisingly, we don't hate it.
The split-personality effect was thankfully subtle, and a rather avant-garde way to rock the asymmetric look.

Kristin Chenoweth Squeezes Two Looks Out of Bandage Dress | Hollywood yohana

NY Fashion Week, Kristin Chenoweth

Kristin Chenoweth

When you love a dress (and it looks sensational on you), why wouldn't you want to wear it over and over again? Well, that was exactly what Kristin Chenoweth must have been thinking when she attended the Late Show with David Letterman show in NYC rocking the same black-and-gray Hervér Léger bandage.

The Broadway star first donned this frock for the designer's fall 2012 collection during New York Fashion Week. That day, the blonde stood out in the cap-sleeve number that she teamed with dove-gray pumps.
Then, exactly 12 days later she re-wore the exact same outfit—shoes and all! The only changes she made were sporting sunnies, a pendant necklace and carrying the cutest eye candy ever—her white puppy!
Not only do we love that she had the guts to sport this ensemble again, but by doing so she was also helping out good ol' Mother Nature. Double props, Kristin!

Chloë Moretz Loves All Colors of the Rainbow—On Her Hair! | Hollywood yohana

Chloe Moretz

We can always count on teenagers to give the latest and greatest trends a try, and Chloë Moretz is no exception. The Hugo star is the most recent star to jump on the colored hair bandwagon when she hit the 14th Annual Costume Designers Guild Awards held at The Beverly Hilton hotel earlier this week.

Instead on dipping her ends in dye, or her whole set of locks for that matter, the actress gave her strands some rainbow hues. She had a one part purple, one part orange ‘do, which also had some noticeable pink traces.
It seems like the gal has been taking notes from Selena Gomez's hairstylist because the fellow teenybopper has sported a similar multicolored tresses. Although we love her golden mane, we think this 'do is the perfect way to liven up during this hectic award season!

Cool Your Cleanser | Hollywood yohana

Woman Washing Face
Every week, myStyle staffers, readers, experts and stars offer their fashion, beauty and lifestyle tips. This week, we checked out Kari Feinstein's famous Oscars Style Lounge in West Hollywood, where celebrity plastic surgeron Dr. Joseph Rucker of Enza Essentials shared one of his secrets to getting red carpet-worthy skin.
"Store your facial cleanser in the refrigerator before any important event. Washing with a cool cleanser will reduce inflammation, invigorate your skin adn give it a natural glow." —Dr. Joseph Rucker

Gwyneth Paltrow Honors Oscar Nominees at Women In Film Party | Hollywood yohana

Gwyneth Paltrow

The Academy Awards are merely hours away. However, the journey to this star-studded event is filled with pre-Oscar parties. And on Friday, we had the honor of attending the 5th Annual Women In Film shindig that was held at Cecconi's in West Hollywood—and was hosted by Gwyneth Paltrow, who wore a plunging black Boy. by Band of Outsiders jumpsuit!
The soiree, which was sponsored by MaxMara and M·A·C Cosmetics, honored all the 2012 female Oscar nominees. So, of course, many of the ladies were in attendance. We're talking gals like Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer and Jessica Chastain. And to show there support to their peers Vanessa Hudgens, Selena Gomez and Shailene Woodley were also present.
As guests sipped on Perrier-Jouët bubbly, Gwyn took the stage alongside WIF president Cathy Schulman and congratulated all the women saying, "Even the nomination is a huge win. Congratulations, to all of you." However, she lightened the mood by joking, "[Women] are smarter and better than men!"
At the end of the night, the invitees left with gift bags provided by M·A·C that contained a selection of products curated by Oscar nominated artist Amanda Knight—Academy Award-approved goodies, yes, please! After seeing the gals look stunning firsthand, we can't wait to see what look-at-me gowns they'll be donning for tonight.

Wendi McLendon-Covey | Hollywood yohana

Wendi McLendon-Covey

Before she graced the Oscars red carpet, the Bridesmaids star gave us a peek at her personal style at the GBK Celebrity Lounge in honor of the Academy Awards, where the actress walked away with luxurious Vani-T beauty products, stunning Made In Earth jewelry, scent-sational Milena's Boutique candles and Julep polish and nail care.
WHAT SHE'S STYLIN': This is Diane von Furstenberg. My shoes are Guess. I love a nude shoe. I have to wear heels, because I have Oscars rehearsal in 45 minutes!
FASHION PHILOSOPHY: At my age, I really have to stick to a classic style. I try to not look like I'm trying at all—like everything just sort of came together without any effort. That's what I go for. Now, I don't know if I give off that impression all of the time, but that's my intention!
HER MUSE: I look up to the beautiful Sophia Loren.
RED CARPET GLAMOUR: I really, really love the green, so I've done a lot of green this awards season. I have tried to mix it up and do other things. What I think looks good, doesn't necessarily photograph well. I'm kind of learning by trial and error. Basically, I try to stick to dresses that are not too ornate, because I can make that look very tacky.

Emma Stone Takes Inspiration from the Bow-tiful Nicole Kidman | Hollywod yohana

Nicole Kidman
Emma Stone

Emma Stone took her cue from one of Tinseltown's original redheads when she showed up to the Oscars today wearing a scarlet Giambattista Valli high-neck gown with big red bow. The bold design was a throwback to the iconic Balenciaga by Nicholas Ghesquiere number Nicole Kidman wore to the Annual Academy Awards in 2007.

Unlike her predecessor, The Help star pulled back her beautiful ginger tresses back into a chic updo, so that they wouldn't get lost in her matching dress. (Nic was blonde at the time, so she was able to balance the giant neck detail by wearing her golden locks to the other side.) Splashes of sparkle were all courtesy of Louis Vuitton.

Arm Yourself with Leather Gloves | Hollywood yohana

Leather gloves NYFW trend

TREND: Elbow-length leather gloves
WHO'S WEARING IT: Models at Yigal Azrouël, Helios & Luna and Diane Von Furstenberg
HOW TO WEAR IT: According to the designers at NYFW, ladylike leather gloves are making a major comeback. Since the accessory can seem like a relic of yesteryear, we figure a little well-intentioned guidance about how to cop the look might be helpful. While you can wear the arm accessory with a dress like at Helios & Luna, we prefer to aim for a cozy look with a sweater or coat. If you have any ¾ sleeve outerwear, now is the time to pull it out. As Yigal Azrouël showed, the cropped sleeve works perfectly for showing off the gloves. Avoid pairing your lovely leather with sleeveless tops or dresses like they did at Diane Von Furstenberg. The large swaths of exposed skin plus the wintertime gloves make it look like you've confused the seasons!

Peplums Are Here to Stay! | Hollywood yohana

NYFW Peplum Secret
TREND: Peplums
WHO'S WEARING IT: Models at Peter Som, Tory Burch and Elizabeth & James
HOW TO WEAR IT: Blake Lively, the poster girl of pelums, must be secretly grinning to herself right now, because her favorite hip-accentuating detail was seen everywhere at New York Fashion Week. The trend has serious staying power—we first identified the look back in 2009, and it's still going strong without any sense of sartorial fatigue. We think the trend's secret to success has something to do with its sheer versatility. You can steal the style with a peplum top or jacket worn over a skinny pant or a pencil skirt (see pics from Elizabeth and James and Peter Som for visuals). Or take notes from Tory Burch and keep the styling simple with a dress that has the extra layer already built in. The designer famous for her logo ballet flats also let us in on our favorite way to accessorize the look—with a very thin belt at the top of the peplum! A skinny waist-cincher draws the eye to the standout detail of your outfit, while simultaneously highlighting your waist before the fabric flares out

Skirts Over Dresses | Hollywood yohana

We have definitely seen skirts worn over pants. During the misguided age of fashion known as the 90s, the tacky look was inescapable. However, recent weeks have given birth to a new skirt hybrid: skirts worn over dresses. Has layering been taken to whole different level? Lets see if this can work.
Czech supermodel Karolina Kurkova definitely showed us how it should not be worn. In her maroon-patterned, sheer sweater dress that she layered with a metallic miniskirt, she easily landed in our Fashion DUi gallery. The combo of the baggy sweater dress with the duct tape-looking miniskirt made for a distracting mish-mash.

Of course, rely on celeb tastemakers Blake Lively and Diane Kruger to wear this hard-to-pull-off microtrend the right way! Blake was the initial trail blazer in February when she donned a white lace Valentino dress that she paired with a baby blue skirt on top. Enough of her dress peeked out at the bottom for a nice mixture of colors and textures.

Diane, who never disappoints in styling, no matter how outlandish the trend, executed the look flawlessly in a floral shirt-dress by Derek Lam that was layered with a black and white striped skirt. The clash of prints and the pop of the canary sandals all came together in one cohesive and fashion-forward ensemble.
Our verdict? We think skirts over dresses can be very au courant when both layers are form-fitting and present a complementary texture or color combo.

Jennifer Aniston Gets a Star in Printed Chanel | Hollywood yohana

Jennifer Aniston, Star

If there was an award in Hollywood for the most predictably dressed celeb, then Jennifer Aniston would take that prize. The former Friends star's style mantra tends to be black or nude minis all the way. However, lately the actress has been stepping outside of her (style) box.

Case in point: The blossom-print Chanel dress she wore yesterday to the Hollywood Walk of Fame. We applaud you Jen, not only for getting a star—it was about time!—but also for taking these fashion risks. We think this was the perfect frock for such a tremendous event.  It was suitable for the sunny weather in L.A. and the midi length gave it a sophisticated feel, which is something Jen is so fond of.
The babe did stick with wearing her usual strappy heels, this time ones by Bally. But, hey, she's taking things one step at a time. Straight golden locks and natural-looking makeup completed her ensemble.

Katy Perry Is Rolling With NYFW’s Hottest ‘Do | Hollywood yohana

Katy Perry, Eyelashes by Eylure

It was just last week that New York Fashion Week came to a close. As we already know, celebs are always eager to be the first to wear the fashions straight off the runway. However, in this case, Katy Perry wanted to have first dibs on rocking the hair trend that was seen all over the catwalks—rolled bangs.

We had predicted that vintage-lover Dita von Teese would sport this out-there 'do. But it doesn't come as a surprise that the "Teenage Dream" singer debuted this hairstyle at the Americana in Glendale, Calif., while promoting her new beauty endeavor, Eyelashes by Eylure. And what did she team blue stands with? A matching dress and heels—duh!

We know Katy is definitely not shy when it comes to playing with her locks, so this fringe trend is one she can pull off. After all, the babe has gone from having brown to blond, red to pink and lavender to blue hair—and tons of other rainbow shades in between!

Which Actress Dressed Like a Fictional Character? | Hollywood yohana

DUI Reveler

Once upon a time there was a twentysomething celeb who wore a dress that was straight out of a storybook. Sadly, her fairytale-inspired number didn't have a happily ever after ending because she didn't land on our best dressed list. Although the silhouette of the yellow frock definitely fit the star like a glove, we can't help but think that she snatched this dress straight out of Belle's closet—or even worse from her li'l sis' costume collection! While we think the gal should feel (and look!) like princesses when she wants, next time, babe you should look at your magic mirror more closely before stepping out in these duds.

Milan Keeps the Party Going | Hollywood yohana

Elizabeth Olsen
If you're like us, you're already feeling withdrawals from London Fashion Week. The wild and crazy shows were like a sugar high that left us craving more. And it looks like we're not alone. Just look at Elizabeth Olsen's face after the Mulberry show—she's practically giddy! Thank goodness we can keep the fashion fix coming with pics direct from Milan Fashion week. We're not stopping there either, with coverage of the Paris, Los Angeles and Tokyo Fashion Weeks coming your way. Here's the schedule, so you can check back for more dish straight from the runway!

Tracy DiMarco | Hollywood yohana


SIGNATURE ITEM: I love long sleeves, especially giant bell sleeves or little balloon sleeves with the cuff. I'm not really into things without sleeves. In the summer, I wear loose, flowy ones. I love the look of sleeves because there are so many different kinds that you can have fun with. I have a dress with bell sleeves that are like 3-feet-wide.
PRETTY WOMAN: Over-the-knee boots are my thing. I don't wear any boots that aren't thigh-high. I have a thing with my knees being out, like I don't have bad knees or anything, I just like the look of it. It's hooker chic. I have them in every color. I must have 45 pairs. I'll wear them with dresses and jeggings or jeans. I never really wear them with leggings, just cause it looks like a cat suit then.
GOING GREEN: My favorite color of all time is green. Jungle greens and lime greens...I love them all. Green is such a beautiful color. And it's my eye color, without the contacts. I love green with red, which reminds me of Posion Ivy. My hair is red. I think the combo is fun.
THUMBS DOWN ON UPDOS: I have a small head and big thighs, so wearing my hair down and voluminous evens that out. I would rock an updo if it was really teased, curled everywhere and pinned instead of pulled back.
PRESERVING BEAUTY: I get Botox now, for preventative reasons. I get things here and there that would help stop wrinkles. But I don't think I'll ever get a facelift. That kind of freaks me out, that they have to move your skin.

ULTIMATE GOAL: I want my own salon. Nothing huge, but something I could make my own. It would be my way of cutting. I don't cut hair like normal people. When Gayle sees me cut, she asks, "Why are you cutting like that?" But my haircuts turn out beautiful. I've developed my own way of doing things. It would be my salon, my rules, my way.
VISION FOR DREAM SALON: I'd want to split the salon. There would be one door, but two different rooms. One section would be a barber shop and the other half would be a woman's salon. If you have to attend a party with your husband or boyfriend, he can just go with you. So instead of having to go to a million different places, it would be a one-stop shop. There would be hair and eyebrow stations and a tanning bed in the back. That's what I really want.

Get a Peek Inside the Olsen Twins’ Fashion Week Diary | Hollywood yohana

Mary Kate Olsen, Ashley Olsen, J. Mendel Model

With four clothing lines under their belt, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are quite the busy girls. We had one reader ask us to recap what the designing duo was up to this fashion week, and we would like to respond with the words of their first on-screen character, Michelle Tanner, "You got it dude!" We never mind occasional Olsen stalking, anyway. The mini moguls kicked off the first day in head-to-toe black at the QVC show. We assume the pair was there to take notes on affordable collections for their Olsenboye line at JC Penney. The petite blonds then took the weekend to focus on finalizing their ultra high-end line, The Row, which showed on Monday at the famous Carlyle Hotel.

A few days later the tastemakers were spotted in the front row at J. Mendel's show in matching sunglasses. From the smiles on their usually pouty faces, we take it they loved the red carpet-worthy gowns with edgy cut-outs (pictured right) as much as we did. For the very last day of fashion week, the girls mustered up the energy to present the label named partly after their rising star sis, Elizabeth Olsen.

Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt Make Paris Proud | Hollywood yohana

Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie

We're so used to Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie looking stunning on red carpets that our jaws rarely drop anymore.

That changed when the longtime partners arrived in Paris for the French premiere of Angie's directorial debut, In The Land of Blood and Honey. Even when she plays with color, Angie still tends to stick to solid hues or only plays with the draping as far as her gowns are concerned.

But this time around, the mom of six stirred things up in a white Ralph & Russo frock. The long silhouette is an Angie staple, but we were blown away by the rose detailing on her left shoulder. It remidned us of a delicate paper-mache flower, and it drew eyes up to her gorgeous face (as if she needed help with those lips!).
There was nothing complicated or fussy about the dress, but it was still intricate and interesting, especially on an actress not known for wearing more than the occasional sequins if she wants to add a little oomph to her ensemble .
To finish off the look, Angelina added sophisticated pearl earrings and red lips.

Eva Marcille Storms the Sachika Catwalk as a Secret Agent | Hollywood yohana

Eva Marcille

Eva Marcille, winner of the third cycle of America's Next Top Model, was on a mission to bring the fierceness to New York Fashion Week. The pixie babe channeled fictional secret agent Ivanka on the Sachika fall 2012 runway.
You know what that means: sultry hooded clothes and sexy harness details to evoke the mystery and strength of an undercover operative. Eva even worked a handheld gun as an accessory for one look. Don't worry, we're sure the thought of the weapon being loaded didn't cross front row gals Adrienne Bailon and Angela Simmons' minds!

Twin designers To-Tam and To-Nya's action thriller of a catwalk consisted of signature cocktail dresses, jackets and separates done in luxurious fabrics, including woole crepe, leather, faux fur, silk chiffon, charmeuse, lace and suede. The gorgeous and exotic collection was called "Ivanka: If We Ever Meet Again, and we sure hope we do!

Jennifer Aniston Shocks in Chevron at Wanderlust L.A. Premiere | Hollywood yohana

Jennifer Aniston

Looks like Justin Theroux is coloring Jennifer Aniston's world happy—and it's having quite the affect on her wardrobe! Ever since the two began dating in May, the actress has stepped outside of her comfort zone and into an orange Vivienne Westwood, a floral Prada, a beaded, sparkling Valentino and, now, a chevron-printed Tom Ford.

The star of Wanderlust attended the film's L.A. premiere wearing a completely modern peplum dress. The black-and-white, strapless number not only featured zig zags, it also had mico-checkered paneling and sexy leather trim.
Touches of gold (cuffs on both wrists, two rings and the zipper on her black croc clutch) complemented the fortysomething's blond locks and sunkissed skin. Black pointy Louboutins finished off Jen's Mad Men ensemble.
Justin better put a ring on Jen's finger, so we never have to see the babe in a string of boring black dresses again.

Spice Up Your 9-to-5 With an Orange Blazer | Hollywood yohana

Hilary Duff, Molly Sims, Vanessa Minnillo

TREND: Orange blazers
WHO'S WEARING IT: Hilary Duff (Vanessa Bruno), Molly Sims (Vanessa Bruno) and Vanessa Minnillo (BCBG Max Azria)
HOW TO WEAR IT: A blazer is the go-to when you want to look office-appropriate at work. Now, these Tinseltown hotties have shown that a bright, cropped version can be kept on long after the workday is over. To keep your look professional at work when sporting such a bold hue, team it with classics, like Vanessa's white top and black skirt. That way when you are hitting that town, you'll still make an entrance. Molly took notes and made her all-nude ensemble standout by teaming it with a luscious orange topper. If you aren't afraid of going all out, pair the blazer with a printed dress or top. For this to be successful, take a cue from Hilary and make sure that the piece you wear it with has orange tones to it.

Which Actress Is Desperately Hanging Onto Valentine's Day? Hollywood yohana

Looks like someone forgot to tell this actress that Valentine's Day is over. She wore this red and pink...umm...contraption to a premiere in Los Angeles. We usually find the red-and-pink combo daring, but only when it's done right. The red bodice and pink contrast sleeves make her look like a walking Hallmark card. Not to mention, the awkward tie-neck makes it looks like the frock is attempting to strangle her. For her final offense, she topped off the fashion blunder with clashing nude shoes.

Dolce & Gabbana Showdown: Shailene Woodley's Femme Styling Wins Out | Hollywood yohana

Shailene Woodley, Busy Phillips
Women everywhere are suckers for Dolce & Gabbana's sexy lace dresses. So we were practically waiting for two Hollywood hotties to wear this feminine and sultry frock by D&G on the red carpet. The Descendants' Shailene Woodley and Cougar Town's Busy Philipps wore the same floral lace dress within months of each other.
Busy wore the dress this week to a viewing party for her show, and she definitely gave a lesson on how not to style the dress. As with many half-baked ensembles, the dress was ruined by the unnecessary addition of tights. That, combined with the equally unnecessary gold belt, clashing coral lip and messy topknot, made this outfit a little bit too…busy. (Sorry!)

Shailene wore the head-turning number back in December at the Dubai Film Festival. The Tinseltown darling looked very girlie in the hot pink ensemble that she aptly teamed with black pumps, natural lips and loose brunette tresses. We have to say that the showdown champion is Shailene for her simple and dainty styling. What's your take?

Cree Picked Out Mom Tia's Green BCBGMAXAZRIA Gown | Hollywood yohana

Tia Mowry

Celebrity moms turning to their toddlers for fashion advice is a big trend this awards season. A month after Sarah Michelle Gellar revealed that her 2-year-old daughter, Charlotte, picked out her inky Monique Lhuillier ball gown at the Globes, Tia Mowry-Hardrict told myStyle that her 8-month-old son, Cree, had a little something to do with the gorgeous, asymmetrical green BCBGMAXAZRIA dress she donned for the NAACP Image Awards.
"When I put the dress on, my son smiled and I laughed!" shared the actress, who was nominated for Outstanding Actress in a Comedy Series for The Game. (Both The Game and Tia & Tamera were also nominated in their respective categories.) "So, I said this has to be the one!"

She continued: "I loved the color! I don't think I've worn green on the red carpet before. If I have, it's been a while! And I wanted to be different." The dress was certainly unique: a one-shoulder design with a skirt that was part mini, part full-length—but completely sexy, thanks to the slit.
Keep reading to find out who made her accessories, and to see what her more conservative sister, Tamera, wore!
Tia balanced the neckline with a side-swept, curly updo, and accessorized with Hearts on Fire diamonds, bronze Amanda Pearl clutch and matching Rene Caovilla heels.
"I loved every aspect of this look. It was perfect for the event," Tia said. "I felt so sexy. Becoming a mom has made me feel so empowered, and I want to be sexy while still being a mom!" She 100 percent achieved that this night.
Tamera Mowry
Tia's twin Tamera Mowry-Housley also made a stylish appearance on the NAACP Image Awards red carpet.
She opted for a subdued, beaded, soft gray Nicole Miller cowl-neck gown for the occasion. The elegant dress had distressed details toward the bottom for a touch of edge, and an open back for a splash of sex appeal.

The glowing newlywed played up her long, goddess curls with big silver hoops and stacked bracelets. She finished off the effortlessly feminine look with pretty pink lipstick.
The beauties rocked two different looks, but each took our breath away just the same. We cannot wait to see what they'll wear to their next event.

Louise Roe | Hollywood yohana

Louise Roe

After sitting front row at at least 10 runway shows during New York Fashion Week (lucky girl!), Louise Roe headed back to Los Angeles to attend Pascal Mouawad's launch party hosted by Perez Hilton, where we got the scoop on the fashion journalist's NYFW experience, personal style and beauty must-haves!
WHAT SHE'S STYLIN': I got my dress on sale at ZARA on Hollywood Boulevard. My coat is inexpensive! It's from Dorothy Perkins in England. And I am excited to say that my accessories are from my line Stylistpick in Europe.
ACCESSORIES MAVEN: This is my double finger ring. I wanted it to be very rustic, so I used wood, cork and gold. I just love the tangerine, peachy colors this season. It's designed after a pendant my mom had in the '70s, so I kind of stole it. I also got my wooden wedge on. I  just wanted to do some very boho pieces for the spring.
FASHION PHILOSOPHY: Very '70s. I model myself after women like Lauren Hutton and Farrah Fawcett, who could literally throw on a pair of ripped denim shorts and look so sexy with a white shirt. They didn't have to be in push-up bras and tight, bright clothes, and I love that.
SHOE FIEND: I love a high heel. Add a high heel to any outfit and it makes it pop! Camilla Skovgaard is pretty amazing. She makes really, really interesting ones.
BEAUTY MUST-HAVES: I really love L'OCCITANE. I just stared using their eye serum, which is amazing. I love the new lipsticks by L'oréal Paris. I don't wear much lipstick, but theirs is the first one that I really liked. I love Laura Mercier blush, which stays in place. I love a really pink cheek. I do masks all the time. I've got a Givenchy one at the moment. The new CoverGirl mascara is unbelievable! It makes you look like you have false lashes on.
FASHION WEEK TALK: It was awesome! It was cold, but I had lots of fun. I wore loads of amazing, bright outfits. it started slow for me. I didn't love all the clothes at first, but then I saw the Mara Hoffman and Tibi shows and I was like, Now were talking! Those two shows were my favorites. The first look at the Mara Hoffman show was my all- time favorite thing ever. DVF had such bright colors. In fact, there was so much color shown for fall—more than I have ever seen in my five years as a fashion journalist. I'm am so sick of seeing black and brown on the runways.
NYFW FUR TREND: I love the look of it. Real fur is different than faux fur, to be honest. They make faux fur so well nowadays that there is not much need to wear real fur. The fur sleeves and detachable collars are very Downton Abbey. It's very retro-chic. It might be a bit of Madmen, too. I think it's from those two different eras, where women were very elegant and lady like. You can wear the fur pieces with a red lip and it's just so femme fatale.
FRONT ROW WARDROBE: I wore three blue outfits in one day, but I did every color in the rainbow. Im into turquoise. I think turquoise blazers are going to be the next big thing. I saw Zoe Saldana wearing one.
SURPRISE SEATING: I really don't know ahead of time who I sit next to at runway shows. They just show up! Sometimes I know them, and sometimes I don't. Shenae Grimes and I get along well, so it's always nice to catch up with her. If I sit next to someone new, I just hope that whoever it is is friendly and they usualy are.

Drape Your Décolletage With Delicate Gold Necklaces | Hollywood yohana

Charlize Theron, Rihanna, Nicole Richie

TREND: Delicate, layered gold necklaces
WHO'S WEARING IT: Charlize Theron, (Fred Leighton) Rihanna and Nicole Richie (House of Harlow)
HOW TO WEAR IT: As long as the girls aren't pushed up to the high heavens (ahem, Viola Davis), you can totally decorate your décolletage with long, thin gold chains and still look classy. When rocking a blazer sans shirt à la Nicole, the dainty jewelry is perfect for making your masculine jacket feel more feminine. Because the pieces are so fine, you can even add a collar necklace to the mix, if you're feeling extra fabulous, like Ri-Ri did. And when you need a little more coverage, a slightly chunkier version of the trend will take care of a deep plunge—just look at Charlize. One last caveat: pick a gilded necklace that gives the look of two or three strands (nothing more) layered on top of each other—and stray away from big pendants. The key word here is "subtlety."
