Borrowed from my Boyfriend

So while skinny jeans have been dominating for the past year and a half it's nice to see a change in style, but who knew it was going to be boyfriend jeans? I'll admit i've always been a fan of the men's button ups but the jeans... I personally am unsure but Katie Holmes and Sarah Jessica Parker are sporting them around town.

Ahoy Matie!

Betsey Johnson's runway shows are always over the top but her Spring 2009 show was a trip into another world. With Captain Jack Sparrow inspired pirate themes and peter pan-esque outfits, Johnson proved her ability to get away with almost anything (ahm, hoop skirts!)

Sigerson Morrison for Target

I've always been interested in the Go:International lines for Target but the news that duo Kari Sigerson and Miranda Morrison will be creating a line of shoes ranging from $30-$40 is enough to make me run to target now. The collection will include pumps, ankle boots, and flats with details such as studs and metallics. 

Dunst Smiles for the Camera

Kirsten Dunst graces the cover of the October issue of Harper's Bazaar. After a mysterious stint at Cirque Lodge rehabilitation center that later turned out to be for depression, Dunst states, "Everyone goes through a hard time in their life." "Now, I'm great." 

The cover looks great with Dunst doing something most stars are unwilling to do on any cover other than seventeen - smiling.

Material Girl

Who doesn't remember the outfit Madonna wore in the material girl video when she acted like Marilyn Monroe in "Diamond's are a Girl's Best Friend". Who else could actually pull off acting like Monroe? And that Gaultier black satin conical bra she wore on the blonde ambition tour. Madonna has had some crazy outfits and now they are to be on display in February at the Old Truman Brewery in East London. The exhibition will be entitled "Simply Madonna, Materials of the Girl" and the pieces are assumed to be auctioned afterwards.

Tautou for Chanel

While Shirley McClaine may be acting as the fashion guru in a lifetime movie, it is Audrey Tautou, the current face of chanel no. 5, that I am looking forward to seeing playing Coco Chanel. Karl Lagerfeld will be involved in re-creating the costumes of the time, which obviously makes the film a must see. Filming starts September 15 in where else?, Paris.

So for the second year in a row a Brit takes the cover of September Vogue. Keira Knightley steals the cover. The magazine votes 798 pages of fashion, but less ads were taken out than last year - another sign that the magazine is struggling along with other conde nast publications.
