2010 is a time for new beginnings; New jobs, new boyfriends/girlfriends, new diets, new-years resolutions, oh yeah, and my new weekly column for Crazy Days And Nights called "Fashion or Fiction".
Enty has been kind enough to allow me to join forces with him to bring you, loyal readers, a look at the most divine fashion trends, sported by the sexiest celebs on the carpet. We'll decide which looks rock (Fashion) and which should be burned (Fiction.) I’d love to hear your feedback, kiddies…Here goes nothing :)
Texture plays a huge part in the early months of 2010, with the chunkiest of chunky knits keeping us both warm and fabulous.
Remember: Chunky doesn’t equal frumpy. If worn correctly, big, yummy sweaters will attract any straight, red-blooded man…right, Enty???
FASHION: Claudia Schiffer works it out in her chunky, charcoal sweater thrown over a dress, tights and booties. But hey, let’s be honest, her six foot frame and gorgeous face don’t hurt either.
CLAUDIA’S LOOK FOR LESS: Aerie Knit Cardigan at American Eagle, $49.95FASHION: Selma Blair proves that chunky knits can be fashionably worn on your head too.SELMA’S LOOK FOR LESS: Gray Slouchy Beret on sale at Urban Outfitters, $14.99
FICTION: Jessica Simpson sports a grey, chunky knit sweater that doesn’t add anything to her figure, except bulk. A more fitted piece may, with synching at the waist may have solved the problem.
FICTION: Despite being a familiar face on the catwalk, Lily Cole doesn’t bring much glam to this oversized, winter sweater. All wrong!BRAIDS:
It’s not like braids were born yesterday, but with the reinvention of this style shown all over the Spring 2010 runways of Alexander Wang, Miu Miu and Missoni, braids have become more popular in Hollywood than in Utah ( We’re particularly referring to the long side braid and fan favorite, the fishtail.
FASHION: Blake Lively dresses-it-up with the super long, ultra-sexy braid at the 2009 Emmy Awards. And to answer your question—Yes, those are extensions.
FASHION: Fergie is always at the forefront of fashion and sported this long side fishtail braid on the red-carpet all the way back in 2008. Girl is really ahead of her time!
FICTION: Braids are hot and all, but puhleaaseee don’t get all Pippi Longstocking on us with the double side-braids. Gwennie, Vanessa and Linds are all offenders!
