Camilla Belle Knows How To Wear White After Labor Day
During the Tribeca Film Festival, Camilla Belle opted for a Reiss Nikita Dress ($320) in white, which fits her perfectly, during the annual event's jury lunch. While the dress can certainly be worn for an evening soiree, Belle attempted to keep it somewhat casual with a pair of Yves Saint Laurent Tribtoo Tweed Cap-Toe Platform Pump ($795), whose tweed and tan leather reminds us more of wicker chairs than a high-end heel. Unfortunately, Belle has no films to promote during the festival's happenings (she's one of the 39 jurors and will be judging "Best New Narrative Director"), at least we can admire her upcoming outfits instead.

James Dean Is Still Sexy, And Reiss Knows It
More than 50 years post-mortem, James Dean is still hot and slingin' menswear for British brand Reiss. Kate Middleton's favorite label tapped the original rebel (ironic, no?) to rep a collection for their menswear line. The capsule references Dean's "immortal style" by focusing on different aspects of the actor's legendary persona: The Thinker, The Observer, The Rebel, The Conformist, The Cowboy and The Icon. We'll take all six, please.

Royals--they're just like us! Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, repeats outfits, too. On the second day of the royal Canada trip, photographers snapped the couple-- and Kate Middleton's white Reiss Nannette engagement dress made an appearance which should be no surprise to us, considering she seems so down-to-earth (I mean, look at her wedding dress!)

We're behind her, though: Kate rocks it in a whole new way this time, though--with a cool red fascinator and clutch, a nod to Canada's colors.

FOUND: Kate Middleton’s Reiss Shola Bandage Dress (It Crashed Reiss’s Website)
Prince Who? It's all about Kate Middleton and her Reiss dress. Photo courtesy Pop Sugar. UPDATE: Kate Middleton's Reiss Shola dress, which goes for $340 and crashed Reiss's website, is available on eBay here. It could come in handy if you ever need to meet Michelle Obama. Kate Middleton, er, the Dutchess of Cambridge, along with Prince William, of course, met with President and Michelle Obama today in a Reiss Shola bandage dress. Coincidentally, the Reiss website is currently down. We're guessing the site couldn't handle the pressure from all of millions of Kate-obsessed girls out there, trying to buy it. The Obamas, making the third official visit from a sitting head of state to Britain in 100 years, were greeted first by Queen Elizabeth and Prince Phillip. Anyway: back to the important stuff: we'll update you when Reiss's site is back up, but like we said, if you want it on eBay, this is your chance. This particular style dates back to February, and retails for $340. Meantime, let these tan sheath dresses, which are ultra affordable, tide you over. If you ever meet Michelle Obama, you'll know what to wear. (more…)
Been Living Under A Rock For 6 Months? Read Our ‘Royal Wedding For Dummies’ Guide
Just in case you've been in a comma for 6 months and just woke up to the media frenzy known as the royal wedding, but don't quite know where to start, this is our version of a crash course. Well, actually, the ladies over at BRIDEfinds did all the heavy-lifting, but we've boiled it down nicely for you. Consider it Royal Wedding for Dummies: The Bride: Her name is Kate Middleton and she's a total babe. That hair! Those legs! Prince William is a lucky man. Oh, and she loves fascinators (those silly feather hats). The Dress: Where to start? Nothing has been confirmed yet, but we do know that Sophie Cranston, Alice Temperley, Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen, Bruce Oldfield, and Jasper Conran's names have all come up as the dress designer. We know there will be at least 3 dresses worn throughout the day, and there's also rumor of a Victoria Beckham reception dress. The Other Dresses: Thanks to Kate, the Reiss Nannette dress and Issa London are kind of a big deal. The Hair: Word on the street is that Kate is wearing her hair down (smart move), and is opting for a floral hair accessory, rather than a tiara. The Shoes: According to sources who know these things, Kate is going to have 3 shoe changes on the big day - and that the pair she's wearing down the aisle are basically flats. Comfort first, folks. The Honeymoon: Prince William has expressed a desire to honeymoon in Australia, but we all know it comes down to what the bride wants. The Crap: Among the memorabilia low-lights, Kate & Wills have been immortalized with: a donut, a jelly bean, Minx nails, a creepy doll, a nail polish ... basically enough to fill a whole house with.

Solution: No Sweat Stain Removers
You know the deodorant commercials where the bridesmaids don’t want to raise their arms to catch the bouquet? I felt like that today, but instead of being fearful of stink, I was worried someone would notice the yellow, sweat stained arm pits of my white shirt… which I somehow didn’t notice when I got dressed. While noticing the stains in a meeting might be a little too late to do anything about them, there are a few products out there that can help you get the stains out before it’s too late. First of all, don’t pick up the bleach! The chlorine in household bleach will react with the proteins in perspiration and turn it even darker. Instead, grab a liquid detergent like Tide Liquid and pretreat, letting the detergent sit on the stain for 30 minutes. Then wash it with a non-chlorine bleach detergent, like Tide with Bleach Alternative. If the stain is still there, instead of putting it in the dryer, treat it again with the liquid detergent, put it outside in the sun until dry and then wash again. If the detergent still doesn’t work, try mixing equal parts water and hydrogen peroxide. Pour it over the stain and let sit for 30 minutes before washing on cool. Finally, for budget conscious stain fighters, a color-safe alternative is mixing one tablespoon of white vinegar with one cup of water, and then pretreating the stain for 30 minutes before washing. Do you have top secret stain fighters? Or did you try any of these? Tell us in the comments section below.
Solution: Don’t Hide Dry Skin This Winter… Just Get Rid Of It
Posh Beckham goes to bed naked, except for gloves and socks to soften her hands and feet. And Guy Ritchie has slammed Madonna, saying she wears a plastic suit to bed after applying an entire jar of $800 anti-aging crème. While we’re not going to recommend that you take it to those extremes, we do have a few ideas on how you can win the battle against dry feet, elbows, and knees this winter. First, exfoliate with a gentle scrub like Deep Steep Sugar Scrub in Grapefruit Bergamot ($26). It’s a circulation-boosting blend of sugar crystals, vitamins A & E, shea, cocoa, and mango butter, that will gently remove rough skin and leave behind soft, moisturized skin in its place. Then apply a deep moisturizing lotion like Bliss Lemon + Sage Body Butter ($35). The citrusy, moisture drenched crème is enriched with antioxidant vitamins A & E, and arnica extract. Plus, it smells amazing and therefore you will too.
Dandruff Is Your Scalp’s Version Of Diaper Rash; So, Get Rid Of It With Baby Oil
What: Grandma Minnie's Oil's Well Nurturing Do-It-Oil, $35 Why: It's tough to find a shampoo that thoroughly nixes dandruff without wreaking havoc on color-treated hair. When I saw that VMV Hypoallergenics' Grandma Minnie's Oil's Well Nurturing Do-It-Oil treats diaper rash in babies, the wheels began to spin. Dandruff is the same type of skin disorder as diaper rash. And since Oil's Well has just two ingredients—organic virgin coconut oil and coconut-derived monolaurin—it seemed harmless to hair. Despite dismal high school chemistry grades, I'm proud to report that this science experiment was a success. Now I massage a tiny bit into my scalp (before wetting my head), let it sit for a few minutes and rinse very, very well. Dandruff and the accompanying itch abates, my hair is super soft, and my highlights are intact. An added bonus: Grandma Minnie’s Mom + Baby Skin Care is free of all 65 known allergens, and is great for sensitive skin. Get Yours: vmvhypoallergenics.com
We Thought Thigh Highs Were Only Okay For Halloween
I recently saw a style I thought was an early Halloween costume at first: black thigh highs a là bad ass school girl. Sure, it was Heidi Montag who was wearing them, but then I saw Vanessa Hudgens and America’s Next Top Model’s Caridee English wearing them too. Are we witnessing a trend emerge? And, if so, aren't our thighs going to get cold? Bare Necessities offers both a seductive dotted pair from Wolford ($68) and opaque options by HUE ($8), while American Apparel’s striped thigh high ($15) is a little sporty. So tell us… would you or wouldn’t you? Is this a good way to transition to fall or only something for the celebutantes of Hollywood?
Solution: Flex-Tastic Offers Another Yoga Class For Your Toes
What: ProFoot Flex-Tastic $10 Why: During Fashion Week, we raved about YogaToes over at Real Simple, and so when ProFoot Flex-Tastic showed up on our radar, we were eager to see if it measured up. I’m a runner and high heel addict, so I’m always up for trying something new that will ease my tired tootsies after a long day. The blue foam exerciser slipped easily on my toes (YogaToes are a bit more difficult to get on), gently pulling them apart and lightly applying pressure. Initially skeptical, I did notice that after wearing the Flex-Tastic for five minutes and taking it off, my tired feet did feel a little better. It didn’t quite replace the amazing foot rubs my boyfriend can be persuaded into doing, but the Flex-Tastic has earned it’s place for his night off. For those of you who can't stay away from the stilettos, both the Flex-Tastic and YogaToes will help your feet feel better after a long day in sky-high footwear. Get Yours: walgreens.com

Gossip Girl’s Jenny Is Such A Rebel… Can’t You Tell By Her Punk Couture?
Little Jenny Humphrey sure did shock the shorts off of us with her dramatic wardrobe, hair, and makeup turn around. But we like! From the heavy metal jewelry to the flannel inspired plaid dress, the stylists of the hit drama are surely taking advantage of all her "It Girl" hype. Want lil' Jenny's grown-up, rebel in designer clothes style? This plaid wrap dress ($240) from Lauren for Ralph Lauren is just what you'll need to shake up all those boring LBDs.

Michelle Obama Tells Leno About Getting Good Stuff Online… Namely, J.Crew
Last night, Michelle Obama appeared on Jay Leno looking every ounce her usual stylish self, but this time in an ensemble from J.Crew. And, like an early Xmas present to us, she declared that one can find good stuff online. We certainly hope so - our jobs kind of depend on it. What's even more telling is that some of that aforementioned J. Crew stuff is now on sale! The Colorblock Cardigan is now $90 (was $118) while the Italian Deco Tank is marked down to $100 from $150. Of course we don't know if she bought them that way, but isn't it just what the RNC needs to hear after dropping six figures to outfit their own style icon? The rest of her ensemble is currently available at jcrew.com at full price - but still a bargain compared to Neiman's.

A Fashion Find: Cute AND Comfortable? Who Knew?
What: Natural Comfort 'Kching' Wedge Why: Fine. I'll admit it. My new apartment, in all its fabulousness, is way outside of my price range. Meaning, when I moved, I had one of two options: 1) Move to something more affordable, and -- sigh -- less adorable, or 2) Find creative ways to be frugal. My mission to save money would have been more difficult had I not stumbled across Natural Comfort's white patent leather 'Kching' Wedge. These color-blocked sandals come complete with a stretch-to-fit ankle strap and a padded insole for all-day comfort, meaning it was easy for me to forgo my daily cab ride. Plus, the shiny patent leather gave my navy Bermudas and white button down a much needed kick. Now I actually want to walk home from work each day. What a fabulous way to pinch pennies.

A Find: Dancing Queen
What: Tory Burch Reva Ballet Flats Why: I seek comfort, sometimes at the expense of my wardrobe. My company requires ultra-conservative gear, which just fuels my boring wardrobe fire. I canâ€™t totally disregard the dress code, but I can add some flash with Tory Burchâ€™s Reva Ballerina flats. They donâ€™t look out of place with my professional gear and they work with my weekend â€œmeâ€ clothes as well. I know my friends are whispering â€œthank god she got the hintâ€ behind my back, because yes -â€“ my old work shoes really were that bad. My compulsive nature, coupled with the relief of knowing that I no longer embarrass my friends at happy hour, caused to go on a minor ballerina binge. I am now the proud owner of several pretty pairs and you may not be able to tell from my knee-length navy suit â€“- but I am dancing on the inside. Price: $195.00 Get Yours: Saks.com

Trend Alert: Flat Out Adorable
Good news, fellow fashion klutzes: the bright colors, bold patterns, big-time shine, funky embellishments,and ever-present peep-toes that characterize the seasonâ€™s wobbly wedges and perilous pumps look just as good in the form of foolproof flats. Now you can take â€œtaking a spillâ€ off your spring to-do list. Flamboyant colors and patterns are going to be huge this spring. Betsey Johnsonâ€™s hot pink-and-floral Jonila flats ($165) are outrageous enough to be the only statement piece you need until summer. Not into brights? Versatile two-tone patterns are also making it big. Calvin Kleinâ€™s shiny Gracyn flats ($90) combine three big trends: two-tone, peep-toes and patent leather. If itâ€™s the reflection-generating super luster of patent leather you crave, American Eagleâ€™s black patent Fiona flats are a total bargain. Want the shine without the sheen? Metallics are hot, too, and Delmanâ€™s Metallic Ballet Flats ($150) are accented by a delicate bow. If itâ€™s a daring metallic accent youâ€™re after, look no further than
Trend Alert: Trysumers
The trend: Trysumers The beat: New, unusual, individual. Unconcerned about norms. They do what feels good, and are willing to give anything a shot. And it looks good; confidence is the best accessory. The trick: Stuck in a rut? Take a page from these gals. A Trysumer goes for the wild: if you see a girl in this number, sheâ€™s a trysumer. Aromatic anti-aging pheromones? Trysumers are all over it. You may not have a place to wear an ostrich dress, but thereâ€™s something to be said for taking a chance. Instead of brown eyeliner, take a chance with an orange/burgundy stripe. (Never fear; orange is bright but surprisingly forgiving and works on most skin tones.) And next time you see another knee-length little black sheath, take a chance on a jade wonder â€“ your friends will never know what hit you. (Must be the pheromones!)
Fashion Find: Walk on the Wild Side
What: Christian Louboutin Nature Walk Collection Why: Dark and slush covered. Stained with road salt. The streets? Nope, your shoes. The time has come to look ahead to warmer days, lighter clothes, and sexy Spring shoes. This springâ€™s offerings from Christian Louboutin, full of earthy accents and colors, will have you taking every step in style. Transition from winter to spring in suede peep-toe pumps ($760). When the warmer temps hit, reintroduce your toes to the sun in a pair of metallic platform sandals ($780) and soak up the moonlight in sexy fishnet platform slingbacks ($640).

SheFinds Goes Golden: Sheâ€™s Bringing Ugly Back
Category: Best Ugly Winner: America Ferrera (bet you didnâ€™t see that one coming) Why: Ugly never looked so good. Viewers fell instantly in love with America Ferraraâ€™s poorly dressed, dumpy â€œUgly Bettyâ€, who of course is stuck with braces in her twenties, and rocks the four eyes nickname for all itâ€™s worth. Her commitment to ugly was duly recognized on Monday night when she picked up, not one, but two Golden Globes. America won for best actress, and â€œUgly Bettyâ€ won for best comedy. Americaâ€™s deep indigo Brian Reyes dress left no doubt about how beautiful she really is. Get the Look: Snag Americaâ€™s winning style in a gorgeous beaded satin and chiffon dress. If youâ€™re feeling especially creative- create a look. The costume designer for the show, Eduardo Castro, will be judging creations from viewers, and the winning design will actually be featured on the show.

Category: Best Bounce-Back From a Breakup Winner: Reese Witherspoon Why: When Best Week Ever's Golden Globes liveblogger Michelle Collins called Reese Witherspoon â€œa walking middle finger to ex-husb Ryan Phillippe,â€ she couldnâ€™t have been more on the mark. Newly single Reese looked svelte in a look-at-me yellow beaded cocktail dress and the most delish ruby satin shoes. Her radiant red lipstick and edgier, angled tresses completed a look that took the award for better-looking half of a kaput relationship (start taking notes, Cameron!) Get the Look: Assuming you donâ€™t plan on devastating your ex with your post-breakup hotness on the red carpet, go for Hollywould's Red Ava pumps to tell the grocery-buying world that youâ€™re back on the market and loving it.
SheFinds Goes Golden: Broken Prom-ises
Category: Most Worrisome Symptom of Bad Taste-itis Winner: Cate Blanchett Why: Dear Cate, Remember that time right after I saw Oscar and Lucinda for the first time and I promised that I would always love you, no matter what, because anything you did was clearly going to be awesome and wonderful and perfectly right? And then you got more famous and managed not to turn into a bulimic heroin addict, and instead just made movies and then wandered around on red carpets looking amazing in all kind of unusual yet clearly fashion-forward dresses, and I totally renewed my vows to you because it became clearer and clearer that even winning an Academy Award in a dress the color of rancid butter was not going to stop you looking fabulous? You're beginning to test my devotion to your fashion awesomeness, Cate. I worry. This dress looks suspiciously like a high school prom photo (and judging by those shoes, it probably is). It's not the top half of the dress, which is adorably retro and shows off your collarbones; in fact, I wish a dozen other starlets would realize this sort of neckline is alluring without being trashy. It's just...your rear view is no place for giant lace mantillas, Cate, and you know it. Come back to your fashion senses, Cate, and look at the mirror before you leave the house. Women everywhere are depending on you. AVOID this look: Don't be afraid of the even hemline; they're made that way for a reason. Donning a hemline that's longer in the back throws your knees and calves immediately into focus, and if it doesn't work for the willowy Cate, the rest of us don't have a chance. If you feel the call of the asymmetric hemline, try a different angle. A diagonal hemline slenderizes and adds the sort of drapey movement that will make a walk to the pharmacy feel like a red carpet.
SheFinds Goes Golden: Swan(dive) Lake
Category: Most Susceptible to Stylist Pressure Winner: Cameron Diaz Why: One can only image the poignant scene as Cameron Diaz's stylist wheeled in a rack of diaphanous gowns to the dark bedroom where Cameron sat in her bed, weeping into her pajama sleeves, nursing a bottle of organically-derived vodka and listening to a mashup of Good Charlotte and the Sound of the Waves sampler from Windam Hill. Terrified, the stylist went for the most uplifting color of all. "White. I'm thinking, ballet. I'm thinking weightless. I'm thinking attention-getter. I'm thinking innocent. I'm thinking -" "Yes," Cameron agreed, her blurry eye registering only a foam of white tulle, not a wedding dress, but maybe...maybe... "You'll look like a beautiful bride," the stylist promised. Cameron nodded and slurred, "I want him to know what he. Gave. Up." What Justin gave up? Apparently, a wedding cake favor. Avoid this look: Just because a dress exists doesn't mean it's a good idea. If your dress looks like any of these, reconsider. It's very possible to get a feminine ivory silhouette without looking like a toilet-paper experiment. Try some soft layers with a sweetheart neckline, or go for a contrasting black band in sophisticated v-neck or a flirty strapless silhouette. All the white, none of the fright.
