Movie Maven: Ginger McKenna

If there were ever a movie to showcase the glitz and glam of Sin City; Casino would be the headliner time and time again.  Sequins, lace, fur, and endless shimmers of gold co-starred alongside the devastatingly beautiful Ginger McKenna played by Sharon Stone. As her character the ever-so-manipulative, gold-digging hustler creates a life for herself robbing and charming the cash out of the high rollers, she eventually falls in love with powerful mobster Ace played by Robert De Niro who does not hold back in showering her with all the precious gems and stones her wicked heart desired.

Jeans & A Tee Kinda Gal

According to most men; there's nothing sexier than a seeing their girlfriend in a t-shirt and jeans. We couldn't agree more.  

As fashion is ever-changing, a simple tee, sexy pair of jeans and tousled hair will always be in style, along with a fierce comfortable-in-your-own-skin attitude.

Style Spotlight: Emily Ratajkowski

You may recognize this olive skinned beauty dancing around and snuggling a baby lamb from a certain video featuring a certain musician alongside a fellow musician. If you haven't figured it out by now. This brunette beauty is indeed the skintight-clan, white-jumpsuit-wearing (or barely suited; whichever version you watched) model from the Robin Thicke "Blurred Lines" music video featuring singer/rapper Pharrell Williams. But wait, that's not what got our attention; Ratajkowski's easy, effortless style and glowing, natural make-up has got us all in a state of blur.

Sienna Miller first burst into the scene as manic depressive party girl Nikki in the 2004 remake of Alfie starring then real-life boyfriend Jude Law.

Free People | September Sneak Peek

September is one of my favorite months! Not only is it the month of my birthday but it's also the month when the fall previews hit the webs and fashion magazines come stacked as thick as the yellow pages (Vogue is #1 at doing this). With that said, Free People gave us a tiny glimpse of their new September catalog. The concept is simply adorable! 

"Our September catalog was shot by Guy Aroch, who captures model Martha Hunt on the streets of London in a paparazzi-inspired style. Based around the concept of the modern “it girl” whose every move is documented, Martha dodges the camera as she does everyday things like taking out the trash and going to yoga, working on set and going out at night with her boyfriend, played by model Danny Fox. We love this book and the story it tells, and can’t wait for it to drop on Tuesday! Here’s a sneak peek."

Style Spotlight: Sarah Ruba

As the very cliched story of model-turned musician (ah-hem! Milla Jovovich circa 1994) seemingly has a rather short-lived life span, this one story in particular is something destined to be fully lived. Enter Canadian (currently Brooklyn-based) model-turned-musician Sarah Ruba, lead singer of the band New Look created with her husband Adam Pavao. Already creating a buzz in the electronic-dance scene, New Look's electronic-pop, dub-step sound temporarily leaves you in an of out-of-body, slow-motion exuberance that you never want to go away. Ruba's soft voice makes it even more enchanting--hypnotizing you into a realm of surrealistic bliss.
