BFFs Liv Tyler & Stella McCartney Are a Dynamic Eco Chic Duo | yohana

Liv Tyler
Whether Liv Tyler is shopping for a new outfit or groceries, the actress always makes an effort to buy goods that are friendly to the planet.
The vegetarian even looks to her BFF Stella McCartney for help. This do-gooder designer is known for her faux leather and earth-friendly line, which isn't only a perk to Liv, but to all eco-conscious celebs.

Liv has worn a countless number of Stella's creations. But one that stood out the most was the body slimming blue-and-black dress, she wore to the NYC screening of The Ledge. She paired the ensemble with black peep-toe pumps, side-swept waves and a bright coral lip.
Could you tell the frock was made out of recycled fabrics? Not at all! Just goes to show, that you can help save the environment and look sexy, all at the same time.

Who Broke the Bank? Kourtney Kardashian or Maria Sharapova? | yohana

Kourtney Kardashian, Maria Sharapova
Kourtney Kardashian and Maria Sharapova demonstrate how you can never go wrong with a classic black-and-white combo.
Maria wore her BCBG Max Azria ensemble back in 2008, for an appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman. The sexy tennis pro spruced up the safe design with fun two-toned, green and teal colored sandals and a sparkly wrist watch.
Just two months ago, Kourtney was spotted wearing an Alice + Olivia lace top dress to the label's fashion show in New York City. The hot mama paired the dainty frock with black Christian Louboutin pumps and a small YSL clutch. Then, the reality star made sure to give the outfit her own twist when she teamed it with a gold headband.
The two pulled off the sweet and sexy look, but which girl ended up spending more – the blonde or the brunette?

That's why we're superfans of SOLOW, an online retailer that carries non-restricting fashions that are also flattering and chic. They've got great stuff, like a gorgeousautumn berry cowl-neck hoodie and a cuffed V-neck boxy tee in a variety of colors, which is a must-have new twist on a basic.

Maksim Chmerkovskiy | yohana

Maksim Chmerkovskiy
We came face-to-face with the bad boy of the ballroom himself, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, at the BWD Gift Lounge for the AMAs at Lexington Social House in Hollywood this past weekend—and, ladies, he's way hotter in person!
Good looks? Check! Dancing skills? Check! We knew the Ukranian hunk had those two attributes down. But when we chatted with him, we realized he had a sense of humor, too. Swoon! "I knitted my own holiday sweater... just kidding!" he said with a laugh. "I'm sporting a cold L.A. style. By any other measure, it's definitely not cold."
True to form, it doesn't take much effort for the rebel to look this sexy. "I wear whatever works, whatever's clean and whatever's comfortable," said Maks, who picked up amazing goodies at the suite, such asBrilliance New York products, BEARPAW shoes and fenix skincare.
During his off-season time, Maks is focusing on his dance studio franchise, which will have locations in L.A. and Connecticut. "Myjewelry line is popping off," he added. His accessories style? "I like bracelets and leather. I'm into non-denominational rosary beads so that anybody can wear it. We're doing non-semi-precious metals because it's more affordable. Nowadays, it's not about selling a $2,000 diamond. I want to give people the opportunity to purchase a couple things they can enjoy."
So, the hunk has great moves, can make us laugh and has a budget-friendly jewelry line? We think we're in love!

Get A Personal Stylist Without a Celeb Paycheck | yohana

Have you ever scoured your closet for an ah-mazing outfit to wear on a Saturday night and thought, "Oof. I could really use some help." Yep, us too (down to the oof). Finding the coolest trends and lustworthy staples that will fit our bodies just right is not easy.
That's where Marina Monroe comes in. The celebrity stylist is the brainchild behind stylehaüs, a members-only clothing boutique in Los Angeles that features perks like ready access to a personal stylist and a 24/7-hour emergency fashion hotline.

Sounds fancy, right? Yes, but it's attainable. Marina believes that everyone should be able to get fashion advice even if they're not rich or famous. Feel like shopping your sweats? You won't be shunned. Can't figure out what items you need in your closet? You're a phone call away from one-on-one attention.
"The traditional retail model puts too heavy of an emphasis on sales over service, so I decided to turn that concept on its head and create a new business paradigm where service reigns, and sales come as a result of that relationship," Marina told mystyle.
mystyle had the chance to visit the boutique, and we were blown away. The interior was inviting and welcoming, the complete opposite of a cold showroom or snobby boutique. All of the pieces were handpicked, so we saw exquisite pieces from Mir + Mookhi and Lauren Stucky mixed with vintage items, plus racks full of clothes we wanted to steal (don't worry—we deciding drooling would be better than a felony).
We also had a mini-makeover by in-house makeup artist Jennifer Naideth, which left us with more knowledge on eyebrow pencils and foundation than we had expected before being caffeinated. Overall, we left impressed—not only is the space a new concept, we got to pick the brains of experienced stylists. Talk about our dream day come true.
Becoming a part of the fashion dreamhouse will cost $1,000 a year, but with that you get the perks of Marina and her stylists' vast knowledge, excusive member events like trunk shows and sample sales, and two at-home closet consulations per year.
The best part is that Marina truly knows what she's talking about—not only has she been in retail and personal styling for years, she works with big names like Dancing with the Stars' Kym Johnson. (The revealing dress to the left? Yep, styled by Marina.) Plus celeb stylists for Jenna Ushkowitz and Victoria Justice are just two of the many to visit the boutique for amazing one-of-a-kind dresses and bonus expertise.
"There is something so rewarding about being able to help people look and feel their best on such an intimate level," Marina says.

Haute Holidays! Jennifer Lopez's Stylist Dishes On Fab Partywear | yohana

Rob Zangardi, Mariel Haenn
Now that Thanksgiving is over, it's time to focus all our energies toward the fun part of the holidays: getting all gussied up for those Christmas and New Year's parties!
But what's a girl to wear? For that, we picked the brain of one-half of the duo that dresses the impeccable Jennifer Lopez at an event for Gillette Venus, which, as we all know, helps the fashion icon reveal her inner goddess.
Here's what stylist Mariel Haenn (her partner Rob Zangardi had to fly out to Puerto Rico last minute to be with J.Lo, natch!) said is hot for the winter season:
ALL THAT GLITTERS IS GOLD!: Sequins and metallics are ba-a-ack. "Anything that looks just a little bit more special and festive is key," affirmed Haenn. If you don't want to buy a new dress, Haenn suggests addingjewelry or glitter heels to reinvent one you already own. "Even if you had a simple LBD , you can pair it with gold or sparkly shoes and red lipstick for a nice touch."
SEXY SLITS: Remember the leggy Atelier Versace nude dress that J.Lo rocked at the Glamour Women of the Year Awards? If it looked like it was made for the diva, it's 'cause it was! Haenn added that thigh-high slit in herself.
Daring slits are a big trend on the red carpet right now. But since gowns aren't practical for the everyday girl, put your DIY skills to the test and cut a high slit into your maxiskirt. "I put my own slit in one, and I wore it with abodysuit , so even though it was revealing, I was still covered," shared Haenn. We like the idea of pairing a black velvet maxi with a fabulous red off-the-shoulder long-sleeve, like the wayVictoria's Secret styled theirs, for a holiday soiree. "If I love something, and I know it can be better, I'll get in there," Haenn explained. "But women can also have it done at the dry cleaners. I might pay more for the alterations than the actual piece, but it's worth it! The same thing goes for denim. I believe that making a little change sometimes means everything."
White House Black Market Bustier
BUSTIER IS THE NEW TANK: We love our comfy camisoles and tank tops as much as the next girl, really we do, but Haenn says they should hibernate for the winter. "Abustier is truly a better alternative. It's much sexier and more structured than a tank," she said. "You can wear it with a pencil skirt or menswear slacks or with a long necklace—it just helps accentuate your cleavage, and your waist. A bustier is my go-to secret at the moment."

Charlotte Russe Gold Platform
CHANNEL YOUR INNER J.LO: To dress like J.Lo this holiday season, stick with gold sequins, and anything in the nude, cream and white color family. "Jennifer loves lots of sparkly jewelry—if it's not the jewelry, it's the dress; if it's not the dress, it's the shoes," noted Haenn, who said to add bling to a lighter, brighter-colored dress for another classic J.Lo look. "Make sure you rock a short, fitted dress," she said. "And the higher you can go inheels, the better!"

Embellished | yohana

Kristin Cavallari
Look, we're about as surprised to see Kristin Cavallari in a mini as we were to hear that she got back together with fiancé Jay Cutler (translation: not at all). Then again, we're fine with this predictability. Why, you ask? Because the girl can wear the short frocks.

The former reality star hit up November's Immortals premiere in Los Angeles in a short-sleeve maroon Mimi Plange number. The "destroyed" fabric gave the dress an interesting red-and-black marbled effect, and the beaded bodice only kicked the frock's cool factor up a notch.

We love that Kristin kept her hair pulled back to focus attention on not only the dress, but her dark smoky eye and Hellmuth drop earrings. The future football wife finished off the smoldering look with Sergio Rossi pumps and a M.C.L by Matthew Campbell Laurenza ring.

Dakota Fanning Shows Her Rock 'n' Roll Side at LAX | yohana

Dakota Fanning
Christmas is this weekend—boy, it got here fast! So some of you will be jet-setting to reunite with your friends and family. Now, don't let the long flights get the better of you—make sure you travel in style. For a little inspiration look to Dakota Fanning, who flew from NYC to L.A. over the weekend.

The actress wore comfy (and wrinkle-free) black jeans, which she teamed with a white button-down and black ankle boots. Smartly, she sported a large tote bag that stored all her essentials, and a beanie that helped hide any sight of airplane hair. And for her final touch, she stayed warm with a shearling drape jacket.
Her overall look was mainly rock 'n' roll-gone-cozy. But one thing the bare-faced beauty didn't do was wear any makeup. So to look a li'l more put together than Dakota, simply carry a small bag with must-have 3-ounces products—think: mascara, blush and pressed powder.

Classic | yohana

America Ferrera
Don't you just feel ah-mazing when you know you're wearing a dress that fits so perfectly it was practically made for you? Because we're pretty sure that's exactly how America Ferrera felt when she showed up to the London premiere of Chicago in this Nicole Miller dress.
We know classic usually goes hand-in-hand with phrases like LBD, but everything from the square neckline to the knee-length fit on this long-sleeve crimson sheath screamed business chic.

Going for a head-to-toe red hot look, the actress took a bit of a risk by opting for matching velvet Giuseppe Zanotti slingbacks over a black or nude heel, but the textured shoes added enough of a contrast to work with the smart frock. She also kept her makeup and accessories simple—the only add-on was her engagement ring.
America proved once again that real women do have curves.

Awesomely Wacky Product: Wristbands Made Out of Braces! | yohana

In the late '80s to early '90s, kids were all about the Slap Bracelet (ah, the good old days!). Since then, people young and old have latched onto reincarnations of the "happening" wristband. In early 2000s, theLivestrong (and other silcone gels like it) was everywhere. Last year, the SillyBand collecting-and-trading frenzy took over. Now, in the newest wave of cool arm candy, we bring you the Braced-let, which is made out of braces!
As expected, it was the brainchild of two orthodontists, Dr. Marc Lemchen and Dr. Jennifer Salzer. "We thought it was great how the kids were so into picking the colors for their braces," said Dr. Salzer. "It was almost like they could design their smile. It's always such a big deal."
So, they took the wire out of the equation after advice from Dr. Salzer's jewelry designer sis, et voilà! A wacky product that's loved by Selena Gomez and Katy Perry.
In fact, fans are all over the map—literally. You can find Braced-lets at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Fla., and Colette in Paris. "We really just made it for our patients. We did not know it was going to be a hit!" Dr. Salzer, said of her creations that are made entirely from orthdontic materials and have the perfect amount of stretchy.
We think they're pretty cool because they remind us of our youth, and they can be customized by combining different hues. Think your alma mater, teams, holidays, favorite colors—the possiblities are endless!

Go Bold In a Bright Lace Dress | yohana

Claire Danes, Shailene Wodley, Kate Bosworth
TREND: Bright lace dresses
WHO'S WEARING IT: Claire Daines (Valentino), Shailene Woodley (Dolce & Gabbana) and Kate Bosworth (Erdem)
HOW TO WEAR IT: The whole idea that lace and granny go hand-in-hand is so 2010. The frilly frocks have been huge all year, especially nude hues toughened up with leather jackets or black minis for date nights. Those are all good and well, but the newest incarnation is to go even bolder—make your lace bright and wear it proud! Claire, Shailene and Kate all hopped on this trend in notice-me dresses that were far from frumpy thanks to the right proportions and add-ons. The hues alone ensure that you won't look too girly, and knee-length versions teamed with colored slips nix any potential wardrobe malfunction. Black or neutral pumps and accessories make are the perfect way to top off your edgy-yet-feminine look. Now go get your party on!

Olivia Wilde's Sparkly Ombré Marchesa Gown | yohana

Olivia Wilde
As every fashionista knows, the red carpet of a major awards show is the place to pull out the big gowns, er guns. And after pouring through picture after picture of celebs wearing the best of the best designer dresses, we've decided that our absolute favorite is—drumroll, please—Olivia Wilde in her sparkly chocolate brown Marchesa strapless ball gown at the Golden Globes.
Blame our inner girlie girl, but who doesn't love a good princess dress? We vicariously had our fairytale moment through the House star, whose frock was as breathtaking as it was dazzling. Gold sequins were sprinkled on the gorgeous number to create a twinkling ombré effect.

Carefree fringed hair gave the actress's look a feeling of playing dress up. Read: It's totally our childhood fantasy come to life. What sealed the deal was the fact that Olivia didn't skimp on her shoes even though the floor-grazer could've kept them a secret. She paired the gown with gold spiked Christian Louboutin ankle boots to honor her inner glamorous rocker—our other childhood fantasy.

Whitney Port | yohana

Whitney Port
All that glitters is gold this season, and that includes a sparkling smile. "We all have so many things going on over the holidays—so many places to be and people to see. It's important that your teeth are their whitest," reality star-turned-designer Whitney Port told mystyle at the Celebrate the Holidays With Crest 3D White event, held at the SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills." We all want to look our best, and Crest 3D White 2-Hour Express Whitestrips will help you achieve that. It's also a good stocking stuffer!"
Of couse, with Whitney's famously offbeat sense of style, we could not pass up the opportunity to pick the blonde's brain about what inspires her, her approach to putting outfits together and advice for the shopping season.
FASHION PHILOSOPHY: My style is pretty eclectic. It depends on my mood and what environment I'm going to be in. I like to mix and match. I try to mix a lot of textures and prints. I pair old with new. I wear a lot of vintage. I always try to keep my style changing. It makes it fun!
TAKE RISKS: Do not be afraid of taking chances. Step out of the lines a little bit. If you just do everything one note, you're always going to be average—and no one wants to always be average. If you will it and you tell youself that you can pull off a unique outfit, then you willl pull it off.
SHOPPING MAVEN: I can tell right away if something has hanger appeal. I don't like to try on a lot of things. I know my body pretty well, so if it's something not majorly expensive, then usually I'll just buy it. I'm also not a label person. I shop based on what I like not who makes it. I've been doing a lot of online shopping lately because I've been traveling so much that I sit on the airplane and that's all you can do really do. The website I like to shop at areNET-A-PORTER, Nasty Gal and Pixie Market.
HOT LIST: Sweaters. Lots of boxy, oversized wool sweaters. I just got this Alexander Wang fluorescent yellow sweater that was really fun to wear to a holiday party. I also love oxford shoes. I wear flats on a daily basis.
STYLE ICONS: I've always looked up to Princess Diana. I always thought that she was so classic, but that she also wasn't afraid to step out of her comfort zone. She started so many trends. I think Kate Middleton is playing it very safe. She's probably—and rightfully so—afraid of judgment and wants to be very proper. But I like that the Duchess is very classic and she always looks comfortable. These days, I really love Alexa Chung. I love how Keira Knightely dresses. I like how Alexa and Keira can mix up their looks between masculine and feminine.
QUIRKY COLLECTION: My grandmother started a miniature glass shoe collection for me. She bought every single one of them. She was a big antique shopper. She started all these collections for my sisters and I. My other sister has little glass teacups. But I also collectLafco candles. They come in pretty glass cases and smell good.
SIGNATURE TOP KNOT: I love it just because it's so easy to do. If you don't want to deal with your hair that day, you can just throw it up and still look effortless-cool. The best way to do it is to tie your hair in a ponytail first. Then, split the ponytail into two and wrap the pieces in different ways to make a cool knot and stick bobby pins in it.
HOLIDAY WOW FACTOR: I got these cool vintage gold clips that I love. Playing around with hair accessories, such as sparkly headbands and clips, is fun this time of the year. Don't be afraid to try a bold color lip.

The Glam Fairy Unleashes Her Wrath on Emma Roberts | yohana

Emma Roberts, Alexa Prisco
Glam Fairy Alexa Prisco knows a thing or two about celeb beauty—and now she's speaking her mind about some of the best and worst looks she's seen in 2011.
This picture of Emma Roberts reminds me of the episode of Friends when Ross wanted Rachel to dress up like Princess Leia. I do not like this dress. Its like Austin Powers as Goldmember and a lampshade had a child. I like the sensible chunky Mary Janes that would make Frankenstein do a double take in his closet (she stole them!).
The Glam Fairy makeover team is taking a break for the holidays, with new episodes premiering on Style after the new year. But check the schedulehere for repeats.

Vanessa Hudgens Keeps the Sparkly Headband Trend Alive | yohana

Vanessa Hudgens
If there's one thing we can rely on, it's Vanessa Hudgens infusing every ensemble with her boho charm. The giddy actress shined at the Fontainbleau's New Year's Eve bash in Miami Beach, where she took our holiday party advice and amped up her shimmery gold tank and sequined black skirt with a '70s-esque headpiece. She's like a mini Nicole Richie, and nothing warms our hearts more than a successful—and adorable!—protègè.

Rooney Mara Lightens Up With a Li'l Inspiration From Holly Golightly | yohana

 Rooney Mara
Rooney Mara capitalized on her Audrey Hepburn-esque features (boyish dark pixie, thick brows and chiseled cheekbones) even further by donning a little black dress. The darling beaded, bustier-effect mini was made by Louis Vuitton. But the rising actress did salute the genius who was responsible for the iconic Holly Golightly look with a pair of delicate Givenchy ankle-strap sandals.
With such amazing textured embellishment on the frock, Rooney ditched the pearls and opted for retro red lips.
Up until now, the fashion maven was known for her high-drama cutout couture on the red carpet. So this sweet-meets-edgy ensemble is a refreshing change!

Would You Wear It? Crop Tops and Black Skirts | yohana

Scarlett Johansson, Rooney Mara, Shenae Grimes
Remember when you thought crop tops would be a passing fad? Sorry, but those itty bitty pieces aren't going away anywhere. (You could try to prove us wrong, but we're putting good money on this one since we just walked out of a Forever 21.)
There is a way to dare to bare conservatively, as Scarlett Johansson did with just a peep of skin in a black Dolce & Gabanna bustier-inspired top and high-waisted skirt for the We Bought a Zoo premiere. But if you're going to rock the '90s vibe, you might as well go all out like Rooney Mara. The New York native went from being a slave to cut-outs to finally just wearing two separate pieces with Miu Miu's gray v-neck and flared skirt combo in for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo's photo call in Berlin.

We love both of those high fashion looks, but we're not digging Shenae Grimes' take on the trend. She's no stranger to the crop and definitely has an alternative style, but the red front-tie button down she wore to a photo exhibit in Miami is a bit too down home for our tastes, especially when paired with an ankle-length skirt and chunky booties.
Maybe it's just us, but we prefer our short tees layered with tanks because that's the only way we're pulling off the cropped look. However, we do love that all three girls paired their tops with black skirts. The netural tone helps ground the semi risqué look and make it more werable.
