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.
