SHE LOOKS FABULOUS!!!  I don’t know yet who the designer is but it’s GORGEOUS!!  It’s a cream, long, greacian inspired, one shouldered, with what looks like feathers and beautiful rhinestones/crystals!!  Absolutely ravishing!  President Obama is wearing a black, two button tux with a cream shirt and cream bowtie.  They look stunning!!!  Welcome to the World Mr. President and First Lady!!  Welcome to the world!


Fabulous Fashion Advice: Inauguration is upon on us…what will Michelle wear?! January 19, 2009

SO we are almost at Inauguration Day and we still have NO CLUE what Michelle is going to be wearing.  I can honestly say that I have NO idea what she will choose.  I have found about 40 different choices from FABULOUS designers.  HERE is the link.  If I were to guess and narrow it down I would say she would go with

1. Monique Lhuillier 2/40 is the number on the slide show.

2. POSSIBLY the green Carolina Herrera number but I just don’t think so 3/40.
3.  I LOVE the Badgley Mischka creation…beautiful! 4/40
4.  Michael Kors blue gown is GORGEOUS 14/40
5.  Elie Tahari eggplant gown is really great too 22/40

Those are my picks.  I guess we shall see tomorrow.  I know whatever she chooses it will be fabulous!!  REMEMBER…even though you are the new First Lady…you can still exude class and elegance…and the ALL Important FABULOUSNESS!!!  Remember…BE FABULOUS!


Fabulous Fashion Advice: Dakota Fanning Cusses???!!!

So I am so steaming right now!!!!  My husband and I just watched the NFC Championship and a commercial comes on for the new movie Push.  It’s a scene where Dakota Fanning‘s character is talking about seeing her future and it doesn’t look good and then it goes to another scene and the only word I hear is coming from her mouth, it’s 4 letters long starts with a D and ends with an N!!  At least that’s what I think I heard.  Anyway, I was sooo mad!  She is our little Dakota.  The one who was so precious in Charlotte’s Web, the sweet little girl that gets kidnapped in Man on Fire, she’s our little Dakota!!!!  Now she’s cussing????!!!!  I know I should NOT be shocked, I know kids grow up, I know she is 15 years old, I know, I know, I know….BUT she’s little Dakota!!!  I just have a problem with this!  She is such a fantastic actress…what talent and now she is using 4 letter words on film?  I have NEVER understood that thinking behind bad language in movies.  Believe it or not back in the day I went to film school in New York City and got offered a role playing Reba McEntire in a feature film.  I walked in to the meeting with the director and told him that there were words in my script that I wasn’t comfortable using.  He told me “it’s ok…these are just words, it’s fine…”.  I told him “No you don’t understand, I will not use language like that.”.  “But you are our Reba!” he replied.  I said, “If you won’t change the script I’m walking.”…and that exactly what I did and there has not been one day that I have regretted it.  To my knowledge the movie was never made.  I’m not saying all that to say that people who use bad language are bad people.  I just feel like you can get your point across and sound more intelligent by choosing your words more wisely.  Dakota Fanning will not win an Oscar because she uses 4 letter words in her films, Dakota Fanning is going to win Oscars because she is a tremendous talent.  So my question is, if it doesn’t make the film any better…why use it?  Why waste your breath on words that are offensive to some and always unnecessary?  Just my opinion.  Take it for what it is.  You know what my grandpa used to say?  Opinions are like butts…everyone has one.  Just REMEMBER…no matter how you choose to express yourself vocally…BE FABULOUS!!!


Fabulous Fashion Advice: Zooey Deschanel sings? January 16, 2009

So I was doing a google search on Zooey Deschanel…she sings?!!!  Did you know that?  She’s actually really good.  She has a very raw quality to her voice and a very retro without being trendy retro feel.  I love it!  I know she sang a little bit in Elf with Will Ferrell.  So go check out her myspace HERE.  Now, as far as the blue coat…I know everyone is STILL looking for it…HERE is a really cool jacket that could easily have some red piping put on it.  THIS is also a nice alternative.  What I think you have to remember is that in a situation like this where you are looking for a coat that they used in a movie is that you have too look for the essense of.  Chances are you are NOT going to find the exact coat.  So you have a couple of options.  You can buy a coat that seems similar, then take it to a seamstress (your local dry cleaners would be a good place to ask for a contact), show them a pic of the coat you want and ask them what you need to buy to get it to look like that and ask them if they could make it for you.  Most of the time it’s just about switching out buttons and in this case adding some red trim.  Your other option is to look for the essense of the coat.  It’s kind of like a sister…you may not be identical but you are very similar.  Like for the coat in Yes Man I would look for a blue coat that is knee length, double breasted, with two pockets on the knee.  It is a VERY simple coat to make.  It really is ALL about adding the red piping!!!  SO EASY!!!!  I promise this is your best option.  NOW…there is a new FANTASTIC show on Showtime…well I haven’t actually seen it but I just know it’s going to be fabulous.  It’s called the “United States of Tara” and stars Toni Collette.  It’s about a mom with multiple personalities.  It’s going to be FUNNNNNNY!!!  So, go listent to Zooey’s music, go buy a coat that looks like hers and go watch “United States of Tara”!  But most of all…REMEMBER…BE FABULOUS!


Fabulous Fashion Advice: Tights? January 15, 2009

I woke up this morning thinking about tights…yes that’s how random I am!  I bought a couple of pairs of black tights…mainly because I FREEZE all the time and I wear them under my jeans.  Well, I couldn’t help but remember all these crazy tights I’ve been seeing around.  Hot pink, purple leopard print, some with all differnt colors and I just can’t figure it out.  I mean I get wearing black, navy or cream under say a long tunic dress or something like that but I just do not get the multi-colored deal.  I just don’t think it’s very fabulous.  For God’s sake don’t wear them with OPEN TOED SHOES…UGH!!!  I would rather look classy than trendy ANY DAY!  I love the idea of black tights and a chunky sweater!!  OOOHH…paired with a GREAT belt and chunky boots!!!  I feel a shopping spree coming on!  Remember…BE FABULOUS!

Fabulous Fashion Advice: What’s hot this season January 6, 2009

SO…what’s hot this season?  Let me tell you!  First of all let’s talk cosmetics!  I LOVE LOVE LOVE eyeshadow!!!  A couple of years ago I was invited to attend the Stuart Weitzman Pre-Oscar party he throws every year.  While on my trip my publicist hooked me up and I got to do the whole swag suite thing in the Beverly Hilton.

Let me just tell you that I had THE TIME OF MY LIFE!  I recieved SO much stuff it was awesome!  One of the suites was occupied by Maria Magdalena, a cosmetic designer.  She is FABULOUS!  All of her cosmetics are made out of gem stones.  For example I got a couple of eyeshadows that were made of crushed rubies, diamonds, rose quartz, jade, etc…  They are FABULOUS!  She also designs foundation powder and line of skin care.  You simply MUST go check it out!!!  I promise you won’t be dissapointed!  REMEMBER…BE FABULOUS!
