Jennifer Lopez's 'The Boy Next Door' Press TourJennifer Lopez is one of the most beautiful women on the planet & it’s no surprise that she’s taking every opportunity to show her best style during her latest press tour for her latest thriller film, The Boy Next Door, which opens tomorrow in theaters. The 45-year-old mother of two is hitting every talk show possible in the most fashionable runway looks, combined with the ultra-chic, effortless glam that we love about her. However, not only is her style getting lots of attention, but it’s also the suspenseful movie that’s creating tons of buzz.

Watch This Style: The Trailer To ‘Diana,’ Starring Naomi Watts!

September is just around the corner, which means that it’s time to start thinking about awards season in Hollywood. One of the films at the top of my must-see list is Diana, starring Naomi Watts at the People’s Princess, Diana of Wales. The movies follows the last two years of her life, surrounded by the paparazzi, trying to keep her romance a secret, & make a difference with her human rights activism.

A second, fuller trailer recently hit the web, featuring a more in-depth look at the biopic, sure to add another slew of accolade to the film’s star. I’ve loved reading about & seeing early released images of the royal style icon who met an early, untimely end.

The film is due out in the U.K. on September 20th, directed by Oliver Hirschbiegel, also starring Naveen Andrews & Douglas Hodge. Check out the trailer below to see Diana brought back to life on the big screen!

Silver Screen Style: A Visionary, New Trailer For Baz Luhrmann’s ‘The Great Gatsby,’ Starring Leonardo DiCaprio & Carey Mulligan!


Some of you may already know that I lend my writing skills to a movie news & reviews website, Movie Buzzers, as a freelance film critic & news reporter. This has its benefits since I love to examine fashion in films & one of the most anticipated movies of 2013 is certainly Baz Luhrmann‘s The Great Gatsby, starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan, Tobey Maguire, Joel Edgerton, Isla Fisher, & Elizabeth Debicki.

Not only does the movie celebrate the Jazz Age classic tale, originally written by American author F. Scott Fitzgerald, but it’s Luhrmann’s imagination that brings new life to the 3-D film. Also, costume designer Catherine Martin (Moulin Rouge, Australia) collaborated with Miuccia Prada, whose accomplishments include Prada & Miu Miu, for an impeccable vision for men’s & women’s fashion for the era. You can be certain that luxurious lace details, flapper-inspired hemlines, & art deco accessories will make a comeback once the film premieres on May 10th.

Take a look at the latest trailer, which features an in-depth look at Gatsby’s romance with Daisy, & the love triangle that ensues when Daisy’s husband Tom sees his wife swept away by the millionaire. Are you excited about the premiere of this film? Do you like the casting decisions? What do you think about the fashions?

Show Me The Shoes: One Stop Shoe Shop For Day, Work, & Cocktail @Payless!


It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of the styles @Payless, which is why I continue to share the best finds from the store for all seasons. Not to mention, while celebrating the holidays, you can hone your style a little better without breaking any budget with a special 20% off coupon code (82028) to ease any shopping stress & it expires on 12/19. 

I’ve selected styles that vary for occasions, including day, work, & evening. I believe in a versatile shoe, while getting the most for your money, which is why I’m starting off with the dexflex by Dexter Kappy toe pump ($16.49) in bronze, the most inexpensive of my quintet here.  I’ve been getting into the less popular metallics like copper, rose gold, & bronze, loving the way they offset some of this season’s trendiest colors.  Not only are they perfect for a pencil skirt & blouse for work, but will also contrast any powersuit. 

For some menswear inspiration, I love the Dexter Kylie wedge pump ($22.99) in grey-black plaid, which changes up a traditional wedge to a work-ready investment. Of course the pattern is specific, but you won’t do wrong with a lace-detail sweater with jeans for day or an embellished top & trumpet skirt for the office.

For the vintage lover out there, I love the latest from Project Runway winner Christian Siriano‘s Hadley t-strap pump ($34.99) in burgundy, which is the go-to color for fall & winter! This screams for some corduroy, tweed, or textured tights- always cute for a sophisticated night out with the girls or if you’re headed to the board room. 

We can’t talk about the holidays without bringing up any upcoming parties. If you’re not afraid of heights, I recommend the Silvia Tcherassi Lyon platform pump ($29.99) in tan, but it’s also sold in a very regal navy with the same luxe gold details.  Lastly, for the party girl & flirt, the Fioni Kipsie stitch peep toe heel ($29.99) is the perfect touch for a polka dot frock on a date.  There’s a special bow detail right at the toe, which is always a favorite of mine!

Which shoes are your favorite? Have you set aside a spending budget for footwear this season? Do you like bargain shopping when it comes to shoes? Happy Styling!

Silver Screen Style: Remember Clueless? Rihanna Does- In Calvin Klein!


As if.. haha… As if Clueless wasn’t a classic 90s movie for its humor, memorable characters, & darling storyline, Cher, played by Alicia Silverstone, had one killer wardrobe! In the iconic scene where she’s going out on a date with her new-guy-at-school crush, Christian, her dad barks at her that she’s dressed inappropriately in a little white slip dress mini by the one & only Calvin Klein.  Last week on the red carpet, the always risk-taking Rihanna wore a custom Calvin Klein Collection red slip dress that immediately sent the fashion world into a Clueless-driven frenzy, & here’s my part.

Rihanna accessorizes her ravishing version with red strappy sandals & gorgeous Neil Lane jewelry. If you’re looking to get that sexy slip dress look, you can find the Free People swiss dot slip dress ($29.99) from 6PM & double-ring bra top dress ($39.50) from Victoria’s Secret. Check out the video clip below for a refresher on why this movie has stood the test of chick-flick time! Happy Styling!
