A bit off topic

I know this blog is supposed to be about trends, tips, do's and don't, etc...BUT I was perusing my favourite blog, "Go Fug Yourself", and realized that I would much prefer to compile a top 10 list of my favourite stylish celebrities this week. In no particular order, here goes:

1. Emma Watson

As a young hollywood starlet, Emma Watson has always been able to maintain a certain level of class and integrity (unlike a few of her colleagues). She looks trendy and put-together at all times and still manages to dress her age (although I guess she is 20 is that possible?Where did they days of young Harry Potter go?). I love Emma Watson.

2. Anne Hathaway

In my opinion, Anne Hathaway is today's Audrey Hepburn...that may be thanks in part to her skin type (nothing wrong with being pale...props, girl!) brown hair and classic beauty, but nonetheless, she has come a very long way from the Princess Diaries.

3. Diane Kruger

Diane Kruger...maybe I love you so much because Joshua Jackson, a.k.a. Pacey Whitter, is your arm candy and thus an enviable accessory to have. Either that, or maybe it's because you look lovely in everything you wear.

4. Jennifer Aniston

It is true that Jennifer Aniston is criticized for wearing black pretty much all the time, but why wouldn't she?? Look at her. It's obviously working. Again though, I'm not sure if I love Jen based on her style, or because I pity her list of failed relationships that have been made so public. Poor, poor woman. Still, Ms. Aniston is undeniably stunning and always manages to look fabulous - even if it is always in black.

5. Dakota Fanning

Another starlet who managed to grow up in the spotlight unscathed. And so, so cute! Look at her! She can act AND put an outfit together without one instance of the infamous "wardrobe malfunction" that many of our beloved youngsters have fallen victim to (shout out to B-Spears). Young actors everywhere should take a tip from Dakota.

6. Kate Winslet

What a classy lady. This dress is beautiful and hugs Kate in all the right places. She always knows what looks (this includes her beloved escort, Leonardo DiCaprio) best on her body type, which can prove to be challenging for many women . Work the curves! 

7. Leighton Meester

Always looking trendy and somewhat edgy, Leighton Meester does a great job putting together an outfit that I would never think of (but wish I could). Exhibit A is noted above. Although she is still fairly new to the scene, Leighton has made quite a splash in the fashion world and receives well deserved credit for her ability to look cute at all times.

Gossip Girl

8. Penelope Cruz

Penelope Cruz intimidates me. She has that whole mysterious, exotic thing going for her and frankly, I am jealous. The woman can wear anything. That being said, she always selects timeless, classic outfits and does not take advantage of her unique ability to wear sweatpants and still look glamorous.

9. Reese Witherspoon

I really admire Reese Witherspoon. Not only for her sense of style and great acting skills, but also for her strength and girl-next-door quality. Similar to her colleague, Jennifer Aniston, she too went through a very public break-up (with Ryan Phillipe, whom I unfortunately now hate) and still maintained a high level of professionalism and integrity. And let's be honest, the girl looks great all the time - I mean literally, ALL the time. Has Reese really had children? I suspect a c-section...

10. Scarlett Johansson

Part of the reason Scarlett made my list is because she always makes a statement. Never afraid of a bold colour or risque choice, Ms. Johansson maintains the grace and poise of an old-hollywood star. 

If you feel I have forgotten somebody important or want to add to the list, please comment!


  1. Noticed a trend here; All of these woman are classy and sophisticated! They are also some of my favourites! But you definately forgot Victoria Beckham! Her style is amazing. I think she always looks great. She well put together, she is trendy and not over the top. Also Rihanna occasionally. For the people who dare to be bold and try something new.

    I can tell this blog is going to be one of my favourites. I love it already.

    p.s. don't forget to check out loco for coco!!

  2. I agree with Doreen I am amazed you didnt add in Vicky B and what about Kate Bosworth she always looks amazing.
    I have to say I think that your like for Jennifer Aniston has clouded your judgement she a snooze always plays it safe haha (I dislike her maybe thats clouding mine)
    Gotta add Gwen Stefani, Nicole Richie and Kate Perry cuz there style is all their own.

  3. Good list! I agree with most of them...except Penelope Cruz. But that just might be because I hate her. She annoys me.
