Rachel McAdams – The Vow Germany Photocall

Rachel McAdams is finally out promoting her latest movie, The Vow, and this weekend she attended the Germany Photocall at the Hotel Bayerischer Hof in Munich. As always, the actress looked amazing, this time opting for a Collette Dinnigan Spring 2012 dress.

Blake Lively – Haywire New York Screening

I must admit that before seeing Blake Lively at the Haywire New York Screening, it never occurred to me you could actually pair knitwear and sequins. Even now, I’m not sure how to feel about it, but as I’ve always had lots of appreciation for the girls who push the boundaries, without always considering rules, for the girls who remember that fashion is supposed to be fun in the first place, I decided to post the outfit. For me, Blake, is one of those girls.

Blake-Lively---Dolce-&-Gabbana

The Dolce & Gabbana gray knitted mini skirt, was teamed with a Dolce & Gabbana silver sequined short sleeve top and a pair of Matiko Stella wedge booties (that sell for $179.95).

A pair of black tights, a relaxed hairstyle and natural make-up completed the look.

Kristen Dunst & Kate Beckinsale – Loving The Stella McCartney Blazers

We already talked these last couple of weeks, about the importance of a cute blazer in our wardrobe, for a stylish 2012. This item is becoming more and more of a big fashion statement this year, as celebrities are choosing to showcase beautiful such pieces, at events and even off duty. Colorful or classy black, you can’t go wrong with introducing it, into your closet. It’s the easiest way to look chic, classy and trendy at the same time.

Miss Kristen Dunst was spotted wearing a beautiful sunflower yellow boyfriend blazer, at the Rodarte Dinner in Los Angeles. She paired the Stella McCartney relaxed tailored creation, with a pair of Rodarte Spring 2012 floral metallic brocade pants. Florals + bold colors yet again, I’m excited about the beautiful, summery year that 2012 is going to be, following these trends. Gold Jimmy Choo India sandals completed the elegant look.

Kate Beckinsale (twice in a day and not on purpose) on the other hand, was spotted leaving her house, looking chic in a Stella McCartney Pre-Fall 2011 triple-lapel tuxedo jacket. The black wool design, was teamed with black leather pants (one must love this combination) and the Fendi Fendista platform pumps.

And there you have it, colorful versus all-black, the bold way to wear it versus the classy way, plenty of inspiration. If you haven’t already, add the blazer to your 2012 Must Have List.

Kate Beckinsale – “Underworld: Awakening” Premiere

Underworld: Awakening” finally premiered in Los Angeles this week and the star of the movie, the amazing Kate Beckinsale, attended the event wearing a lovely gown signed Jenny Packham. First the Golden Globes, now the movie premiere, busy times for Kate in January, but that doesn’t bother me at all, in fact I’d love this to be daily news.

The floor-length gold sequin embellished gown, with a crystal cowl neckline, was the closing gown for the Jenny Packham‘s Spring 2012 Runway Show.

Gold accessories, a shimmery pink gloss and shiny soft layers completed the look.

Jessica Alba – Flower Print Inspired Look

It’s not a secret anymore, I like everything there is to like about Jessica Alba, she’s such a sweetheart, a beautiful woman, a talented actress, an inspiring style icon and I’ll stop right about here, enough is enough. These last couple of days, Jess is out promoting The Honest Company’s products and she has been spotted in New York City, wearing what else but a beautiful and 2012 trendy look. It instantly made me think about summer, about prints, about crazy colors and sunny days. A big accomplishment, coming from a cozy winter outfit.

What I loved most about this outfit, is the mixing of bold colors (orange, green) with the floral pattern, both big trends for 2012, and also, the fact that the Oversized Boyfriend Coat, is somehow cutting some of the girlie vibe off, making the look a lot edgier.

Based on these same concepts, I created a more affordable look, from items that are available to purchase at Topshop and ASOS. I would have loved for the coat I used, to be a little bit (or more) brighter, but the shape of the one I eventually picked out, came to be the closest to what I had in mind. Also, there was no way I would pair sandals with a coat, not for an everyday look, not as inspiration for the girls who are actually wondering the streets, in the cold days of winter. Boots would have been the perfect way to go, but where would the fun be in that ?

All in all, it came pretty close to what I had envisioned, too bad not everything that I imagine I’ll find, is immediately available online.

I really think there’s something special about Taylor Swift now, about her currently developing style and if you don’t believe me, take a look at some of this photos shot by Mario Testino for the February Vogue issue. Isn’t she rocking this shoot ? I am slowly but surely starting to like this girl.
