Poor Jess Simpson... Always facing adversity with her supposed weight fluctuations, she can't seem to catch a break. I think our real concern should be her outfit choices and not her insignificant LBs. The girl needs a stylist--and stat.
Her latest atrocious ensemble (pictured) should set an example for the fashion-challenged. She has a fabulous, naturally-curvy body. She just made the wrong choice (and has historically made the wrong choices) in what to wear. Let's break it down with commentary:
-->All high-waisted jeans are not made equal. Color/finish, pocket placement/size, and fit should be taken into consideration. If you're pin-thin and 5'10", then skip this point. For all others, let's face reality.
-->Beware of rising bread syndrome! Jessica's tank top is far too tight on her. And she's a petite woman!!!
-->The double belt...
-->Self confidence. The most important item of all. Jess was seemingly happy and confident on stage. I love that.

From a distance, the collection looked as though they were made of simple silhouettes. Taking a closer look, you see the beauty, exquisite details and hard work that went into each garment. Embroidered flowers made from organza and cellophane appeared 3-D. The paillettes were microdots of matte plastic, and the lace shivered with tiny crystalline beads. With paper roses, camellias, and feathers that adorned each girl, gave the clothes they were wearing some competition.

...that's the headline I'd love to see on all the fashion sites the day after the Oscars. The Oscars are just 4 short weeks ahead and we've already seen Hollywood's successes on the red carpet at the Golden Globes ... and we saw the disarray. We saw a better showing at the SAG Awards show but with all this red carpet activity, no one really made my heart skip a beat. Okay, perhaps Eva Mendes in Dior at the Golden Globes came close. Then, there was the lovely lily of a dress Kate Beckinsale wore. And as everyone swooned at Eva Longoria's Golden Globe red number *yawn*; I was unimpressed. Now, the gown Eva Longoria wore to the SAG Awards - much more interesting. Loved it!
But I digress. For the Oscars, I want to see the stars come out in fierce style. Risk it. And give the boring silhouettes that, quite frankly, I've grown tired of seeing, a rest. Who do I suggest? Giambattista Valli. Ugh! The question is which one!? I would love to see the leading ladies of the evening (the supporting actresses included) ... I'd love to see Penelope Cruz, Taraji Henson or Anne Hathaway in one of Giambattista Valli's spring 09 fantasies. Are these gowns just not tremendous!? Where would one wear these darling floral dreams if not to the Oscars? Or your wedding?
I imagine these gowns when worn actually feeling like a bouquet of roses when the petal edges are pushed up against your skin. How lovely if the dresses actually do? I will be so disappointed if one of the angels of the silver screen is not dressed in one of these fairytale gowns at the Oscars. If not a nominated actress, perhaps Jennifer Garner or Cate Blanchet? If Halle Berry wasn't caught up with a baby, I could definitely see her gorgeous skin and figure doing these rosettes justice.
Valli is my number one red carpet choice this year. Let's see if anyone has the gumption .. and PUH-LEASE let it not be Drew Barrymore.

Loyal Wangster that I am, I can't help but report on the fact that Style.com broke the news that Alexander Wang is launching a line of menswear for Spring 2010. I know it seems ages from now, but it'll be like Topshop- that pleasant little surprise in the distance that creeps up and suddenly, ahem, appears (or feels like it will imminently). If Wang's womenswear is any indication of what men can expect, I'd say be very excited. Slouchy, edgy pieces won't have an iota of the overly stylized feel that most designers attracting hipsters in droves would usually have.
I have to say, weekends won't be more comfy or cool, wundergents. I am so very excited about it, partly because I notoriously shop the men's section, be it in the comfort of my boyfriend's closet or Old Navy (the best) and I have the feeling I'll love Wang's masculinification (suspiciously not flagged by my spell check) of his wares.
Don't forget that his line of stretched t-shirts and shirt dresses, T, hits stores this spring. Self-professed- Obsessed.

Picture this: A corporate casual, male-dominated office environment. Men swirling about wearing button-down shirts without ties and nondescript black trousers. All is fine and dandy until you hone in on a dude and do a double-take. Why yes, his shirt IS mildly translucent. And yes, you just spied the faintest hint of flesh-colored hue shining through his light blue striped dress shirt. Oh, wait, and it's unbuttoned "casually" to reveal the beginnings of a pale, hairy chest.
We aren't at Cain Luxe, my friends. Put a t-shirt on underneath your daytime dress shirt if you know what's good for you. No one wants to see any indication of hairy chest or torso while in a professional atmosphere. In the wintertime, undershirts serve as a great insulating base layer. And in the summertime, the t-shirt will wick away moisture (which will, more importantly, save passersby from seeing off-putting underarm/back/chest sweat marks).
I like to recommend a generic crew neck tee. But if you don't want the t-shirt to show, would prefer to show a bit of skin, or feel stifled by the crew's neckline, then you can always invest in a v-neck or scoop neck tank instead. Go budget with white tees since they'll likely become discolored or threadbare after a year's wear. Then you won't feel guilty replacing them annually.
Pharrell just posted pics of his new BAPE croc leather Spongebob sneakers.
This is probably a bespoke piece.

Is that a Hermes bag he is stepping all over?
This has to be some type of photoshoot. I can't imagine him hopping on a regular bus.
