I’m not normally a fan of Miley Cyrus, but I might start changing my tune. She was absolutely flawless at Clive Davis’ Pre-Grammy party. Her shimmery slip dress paired with a pink Calvin Klein 2014 Pre-Fall jacket was like a little slice of heaven. And the hair! Obviously I’m a fan of the pixie so I’m very glad to see she’s decided to keep it. The platinum color worked perfectly with subtle makeup. She looked elegant, sexy, and very put-together. Now this is a Miley I can get behind!

Remember in the 80’s when Brooke Shields rolled around on the floor saying “No one gets between me and my Calvin’s”? Well, I do. And I know I ran right out and bought a pair of Calvin Klein jeans. As a matter of fact, my sister and I got quite a few pairs from our second cousin Lisa and we’d have our grandma sew the legs so tight we could barely get them over our ankles. Memories…My point is, Calvin Klein knows how to design for a woman and decades later he has masted the art of minimalism. Keeping it simple has never looked so good.
Francisco Costa, a designer behind the Klein brand, has a fantastic limited-edition capsule collection available now at Macy’s. For me, it was love at first sight. I was immediately drawn to the simple, yet chic designs and colors. Costa, a native Brazilian, was inspired by architect Paulo Mendes de Rocha’s imaginative and daring designs, and found them the perfect backdrop for his incredibly chic and minimalistic style. I bring these dresses to all of my clients and amazingly, they look fantastic on almost everyone. Made of viscose, crepe, and jersey, they flow over the body and give a sexy yet subtle silhouette. And with all different sleeve and length options, there is a perfect choice for every body type. Here’s a look at my top three choices.
The entire Francisco Costa for Calvin Klein is available exclusively at Macy’s
This collection can take you to any event you may have this summer. And at prices under $200, you get top designer fashion for thousands of dollars less than his couture. And in my world, that’s a bargain.
The Cannes Film Festival was the week and the stars were out in force. This is my favorite festival because the ladies turn on the glamour and there were so many stunning looks it was hard to narrow it down. Kristen Stewart, Diane Kruger, Naomi Watts, and Diane Kruger really stole the show (in my opinion). Here are my picks for most amazing looks at Cannes.
Eva Longoria in Marchesa. Wow! My favorite dress of the entire festival. The train is divine, the detailing is fabulous. It’s a dress that completely gobsmacked me. And Eva’s hair and makeup absolutely compliment the design.
Jada Pickett Smith in Alberta Ferretti. I really like this dress on Jada. The silhouette is beautiful and the overall look is very soft and feminine. Sometimes I think she can look too hard, but this is gorgeous.
Kristen Stewart in Balenciaga. This is a great dress for her. It’s a little edgy but still feminine. Whoever she has for a stylist is certainly earning their paycheck. I love seeing Kristen look like a lady.
You can certainly see why Cannes is spectacular. These ladies know what works for them and how to dress for the occasion (and they have amazing stylists). This just goes to show that glamour isn’t dead.
I have been a huge fan of costume designer Janie Bryant since the days of HBO’s “Deadwood”. This is one of my all-time favorite shows and a big reason why (besides the incredibly talented actors and writers) are the costumes. When you watch this show and look at the wardrobe, it’s as if you can smell and feel the dirt and grime of the old west. It takes a very talented designer to capture that feel and it’s no surprise she won an Emmy for her work. Currently she is the costume designer for AMC’s “Mad Men” and has designed collections for Banana Republic, Maidenform, and Nailtini. Her own style is one of elegance and class, but more than anything, it’s her talent that inspires me.
Janie’s book, The Fashion File, is full of great tips and advice. Available at Amazon

The SAG Awards were Sunday night and the stars were out in full-force. I think this is my favorite awards show. Firstly, it’s only two hours. Secondly, there is no host, and thirdly, it’s just to honor actors. It seems more fast-paced and laid back, and that makes for much more enjoyable viewing. The ladies of the red carpet looked amazing (of course) and I had a lot of favorites. In my opinion, this show had the ladies looking better than ever!
Julie Bowen in Temperley London gown with Martin Katz jewelry and Judith Leiber clutch. This is an interesting choice. At first I didn’t really like it, but it grew on me. She’s taking some risks and you have to give her credit for that.
And now for my favorite-it’s a tie. These two ladies blew me away. They both looked so elegant, so sophisticated and so absolutely stunning, I just can’t decide between them.
Rose Byrne in an Elie Saab Couture Jumpsuit. Not many people can pull off a jumpsuit, especially on the red carpet. But paired with Chanel fine jewelry and a Lena Erziak clutch, she made it sparkle and shine. The hair and the makeup really complimented the jumpsuit. Simply fabulous!
Zoe Saldana in Givenchy Couture drop-waist gown. They need a new word for how stunningly beautiful this dress is. I could die, it’s that good. The crystal embellishments on the sleeves and the neckline are spectacular. The hair and the makeup are divine. She is gorgeous.
