Trend Watch: Blue Shade Eyeglasses

Arguably the best male film stars of today have more in common than making blockbusters, they also share the same sense of style. For instance, the other day while attending The Today Show Bradley Cooper was seen sporting new blue shaded eyeglasses.
This is not the first time we have seen blue shades. Fellow lead actors Robert Downey Jr. and Johnny Depp have also been known to try this look. 
What do you think? Should actors keep or ditch the blue shades trend?

Opening Credits to Lauren Conrad Show

The other day the opening credits to the scrapped reality show featuring Lauren Conrad was released. It's done in stop motion by Angela and Ithyle, the duo who also famously created the stop motion Amazon Kindle ads. If this intro is any indicator to how cute & fun the show would have been, MTV made a horrible decision in cancelling it.

Fashion Forward Rain Wear

It may be the first day of Spring, but the weather outside doesn't reflect this. Today is our first hint at April showers to come. Due to the deplorable weather, I have compiled a list of fashion forward rain wear. 

The first thing everyone should own are Hunter Boots. These are the perfect rain, sleet, mud boots. I have a particular love of the Original Tall version. They go up to the knee making sure cold rain and mud can't get on you. I prefer a darker color for these boots, but they come in every color you could imagine. 
 Purchase at Hunter Boots for $125

If you want an upgraded version of these, try the collaboration of Jimmy Choo and Hunter Boots. They offer a crocodile embossed print. 
 Purchase at Jimmy Choo for $425

There's no doubt that the rain jacket is the most important part of looking fashionable in horrible weather. 

If you want a high end investment jacket, I would go with Loro Piana's Horsey. It's a fantastic jacket with a drawstring waist (always great to add shape to a jacket!), rain and wind resistant cuffs, detachable inner vest, and a deerskin collar. It is all weather and is part of the official uniform of the Italian Equestrian Jumping Team. Comes in both Men's and Women's. 
Purchase at Bergdorf Goodman for $1,995

My second choice is a more cost effective option than the Loro Piana jacket above. It is the Barbour Beaufort Jacket. This Barbour all-weather jacket is wax waterproofed with corduroy collar, tartan lining, and moleskin lined hand warmer pockets. This is Barbour's most popular design though they do offer more fashionable options as well. Check out their other Women's jackets HERE. The Beaufort jacket comes in both men's and women's. 
Purchase at Orvis for $400. 

After you have gotten the essentials to your rainy day outfit, you can add some fun. If you hate that wet pant feeling, try wearing leggings instead. With leggings you can really pay whatever amount you want. To me, leggings are leggings no matter who made them. Don't spend a lot of money on them because you can spend that extra money on accessories!
Purchase at Bloomingdales for $25

To get that warm and cozy feeling, get knee high socks. These will make the boots more comfortable as well. Put them on over your leggings.
Purchase at Neiman Marcus for $40

The last item I recommend is a bright and colorful scarf. You need some color on such a dreary day and this is the best way to do it! 
The first scarf is Lauren by Ralph Lauren
Purchase at Macy's for $78

Second scarf is Tilo Water Drops scarf. 
Purchase at Shopbop for $125

The last is the Theodora and Callum Navajo Tie All scarf

Let me know what you think of my rainy day choices!

Cover Girl: Rihanna

Rihanna covers the April 2011 edition of Vogue Magazine. My favorite part about this shoot is the dramatic emphasis on the color red. From her hair to her lips and the cut out bodycon outfit she has on in one of the images. It starts spring off in a fiery way.

Fish Tail Braids

As of late, the newest hair trend in Hollywood is the fish tail braid. It's a nice update to the classic braid. With Spring and Summer on their way, this is a great hairstyle to try out for those really hot days. The best part about this hairstyle is that it looks great on everyone!

 Minka Kelly
 Vanessa Hudgens
 Mary Kate Olsen
 Diane Kruger
 Angela Simmons
 Dianna Agron
 Kim Kardashian

If you want to do this hairstyle and don't know how, there are some great how-to videos on youtube. I would highly recommend looking on there first, as it helped me learn really quickly. Here is a photo of my first try:
