We often look to our favorite celebrities for style inspiration, but most celebrities use stylists to put together their every outfit; from press tours to red carpets, and even everyday looks caught by the paparazzi. How much work actually goes into choosing clothing for every appearance is a part of the entertainment industry that often gets written off: pinpointing a client’s personal style, securing pieces from showrooms and designers, fittings, transporting, and the insane schedule. So to say that I am a bit impressed by those busy and successful celebrities who not only take the time to style themselves, but by those who consistently prove that they know what they are doing, is an understatement.
Here are 6 of my favorite self-styled celebrities who consistently knock it out of the park.
The ever chic Blake Lively has never had a fashion stylist and consistently tops the best dressed lists – on and off the carpet. She has explained it as a creative outlet, and a bit of a control issue. Whatever the reason, I always look forward to Blake Lively’s style choices!
January Jones doesn’t like being told what to do – or wear. She does not see the sense in wearing something she doesn’t feel good in or like herself, just because an expert tells her to.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have completed their first royal tour as a married couple, a 16 date tour of Australia, Fiji, the Kingdom of Tonga, and New Zealand, coinciding with the Invictus Games, focusing on education and service-based issues.
Can we just be honest and admit that we have only been paying attention because of “Royal Bump Watch 2018” and for The Duchess’ fashion looks? I know I’m not the only one! Meghan’s effortlessly chic fashion sense has stolen the spotlight of the first official royal tour and she has stunned in each and every look, with her natural pregnancy glow only adding to her beauty.
October 17th, 2018 by Jennifer Beile 10 Pop Culture Moments from 2018 to Inspire Your Halloween Costume
Whether you tend to go all out for Halloween, or keep it simple, 2018 has graced us with plenty of pop culture moments to inspire a Halloween costume for just about everyone. Take a look at 10 Halloween costumes inspired by the biggest pop culture moments of the year!
Ally: “A Star Is Born”
Lady Gaga’s character, Ally, undergoes many transformations in the movie, without being too specific and spoiling the character development, early Ally can easily be DIY’d from items that are already in your closet. Bonus points if you get your other half to dress up as Bradley Cooper’s Jackson Maine character.
Lady Gaga, “A Star Is Born” Premiere
Looking for a more grandioise costume than Ally from “A Star Is Born”? Look no further than Lady Gaga’s look at the movie’s premiere. Think lots and lots of feathers!
Wardrobe is never coincidental when it comes to our favorite TV characters. Everything from color to accessories are used to show the progression of the characters’ story line. While a characters’ style is never the sole reason I watch a television show, it will catch my attention and generate interest I may not have had before, or further my enjoyment of a show or character, creating a bond over an interest that I share with that fictional character. Much like the bloggers that I have followed for years, my style inspiration also comes from television and movie; fictional or not, their clothing and fashion are definitely real!
Below are 3 TV characters from 2018 whose closets I’d like to raid!
Dr. Rainbow “Bow” Johnson, “Black-ish“
Modern, bold, boho chic; It was the quick glimpses of Bow’s wardrobe from commercials that sucked me in to “Black-ish” and her refreshing style has inspired me to become more colorful, daring with silhouettes, and to have fun.
Rebecca Pearson, “This Is Us“
We get to see Rebecca throughout four decades, and although I am sobbing through each episode, I’ve come to appreciate her romantic bohemian wardrobe just as much as her sweet relationship with her husband and family.
Kelsey Peters, “Younger“
I wasn’t surprised to find out that Patricia fields, costume designer for “Sex And The City”, is a costume consultant for younger. On trend and bold, much like SATC’s Carrie, Kelsey Peters is not afraid to take risks and wear the latest fashion forward pieces.
Lately, Blake Lively’s style has been getting as much attention as her acting career. She’s worn a suit for every single promotional appearance for her new movie, A Simple Favor, once even changing seven times in one day. It seems the decision may be part of a subtle PR stunt that plays homage to her character Emily. Blake has practically reinvented the suit and shows us how it can (and should) be styled. From prints to neon and from sleek and chic to relaxed and casual, she hasn’t been afraid to be daring and playful. If a trend can be made into a suit, Blake has worn it and pulled it off. The best part of Blake’s amazing style stunt (and what makes me admire her even more)? She acts as her own stylist!
Now that the movie has been released nationwide, will Blake return to flawlessly sporting a variety of styles, or will she be sticking to her two-piece ensembles? Either way, I’m excited to see what she has up her sleeve next!
Take a look at five of my favorite suit looks and accessories from Blake Lively this past summer!
This classic pinstripe and lace combination suit is giving me total “boss babe” vibes.
Blake upgrades plaid with this multi-tone suit and tie ensemble.
I die for this jewel-toned velvet-on-velvet, vest-as-a-top, absolutely fabulous suit combo!
Blake clearly knows that rich jewel tones are trending, and her print-mixing game is on point with this shorts suit.
Blake started her press tour by taking the neon trend to the next level with a monochromatic, traffic-stopping suit!
