And although we got to see her through her turbulent years and were faced with an explicit reminder of the devastation drugs can take on one’s life, we will miss her fiery demeanor and  explosive performances. Brad Boles looks back at their time together. -N.H. The unexpected that…

    Michelle Obama

    I’ll Have What She’s Having : Sophisticated & pretty pastel shades oozing with daytime elegance. Pastels can be tricky to pull off if  you want to look more refined rather than youthful.

    Kirsten Dundst in Yellow

    I’ll Have What She’s Having: A burst of stylish color in my wardrobe because THIS yellow is far from mellow!

  • Best of Red Carpet Fashion- Screen Actor’s Guild Awards

    Zoe Saldana in Givenchy Haute Couture by Riccardo Tisci

    Another Sunday, another awards show. The Screen Actor’s Guide Awards is a bit different from the rest because attending actors don’t try to ridiculously outdo on another as with the Oscars, or add the extra zing as with the Golden Globes. The SAG Awards is as low-key as a red carpet can get, and with that comes some of the most elegant, prettiest dresses that don’t ‘wear’ the wearer… in other words, more class, less schmaltz.

Last week while attending the premiere of Screen Gems’ “Underworld: Awakening,” Beckinsale donned a 20’s inspired beige deco dress that was anything but boring thanks to a myriad of beading and sequin styles and an armful of Amrapali cuffs.
