9/30/2010 Darling Of The Day: Alexis Bledel!


Alexis Bledel, known for her adorably lovable portrayal as Rory Gilmore on Gilmore Girls, has certainly grown up.  She’s been all over the fashion world these days & here she is last month celebrating the launch of Kate Spade‘s new fragrance Twirl.  Wearing dark denim skinny jeans, a white bow neck sleeveless blouse, & House of Lavande jewels, her look is chic & easy to recreate with just a few irresistible pieces.

9/29/2010 Darling Of The Day: Rachel Bilson!


Rachel Bilson is Hollywood’s newest it-girl in terms of experimental fashion.  No, not like Lady Gaga, but in the way that catapulted Sienna Miller and Alexa Chung into the style spotlight & has allowed Rihanna a place in fashion history.  Rachel often mixes soft, feminine pieces with edgier, rock & roll to make her look thoughtfully stand out, yet remaining chic & modern.  While in L. A., she wears a polka dot dress from Alexa Chung for Madewell with mid-calf boots & a large brown Miu Miu bag.

9/28/2010 Darling Of The Day: Charlize Theron


Oscar-winner & Dior spokeswoman, Charlize Theron, showed off her easy glamour in menswear-inspired pieces at Dior’s fashion night out wearing pieces from the famous French brand.  In pleated wool trousers, a cropped jacket, & buckled booties, she’s the epitome of the fabulous fall season.

9/27/2010 Darling Of The Day: Steal Kate Winslet’s Gucci LBD & Nude Louboutin Style!


There’s nothing sexier than a little black dress & Kate Winslet proves that you don’t have to be a size zero or an 18-year-old to look hot in one.  The Oscar-winner is donning a single-sleeve Gucci mini dress & classic Louboutin heels in nude, which elongate her curvy legline, making her look uber-tall.  With the touch of simple dangly earrings & a thin bracelet, both from Tiffany & Co., she’s wowed us yet again with her effortless elegance! Of course, a simple black clutch makes her evening out at the opening of the Mario Testino exhibit in Madrid all the more glamorous!

9/26/2010 Darling Of The Day: Kelly Ripa’s Chic Blazer & Sandals On-Set Style!


For another new series of blog entries here on Style Darling, I’m taking a cue from my favorite magazine In Style & will be featuring a look of the day.  Although, in my case, it will be a Darling of the Day.  In finding accessible looks worn by celebrities, we’re taught all the fancy & fun ways an outfit can turn out.  Of course, making the “daily” commitment isn’t going to be easy, as I’m fighting off a cold- still-but this type of blog is certainly my favorite.  I’ll be featuring a celebrity look- new or old- & will feature items to recreate that look at a reasonable price.  Easy enough, right?

Today’s look is Kelly Ripa, who went casual for a recent episode of Live! With Regis & Kelly in layered tanks, a navy blazer, gray boyfriend jeans, & lavender sandals.  With the tanks & uber-cute sandals, she’s a perfect example of how to integrate your summer pieces into fall, getting the most out of your wardrobe.
