May 4th, 2018 by Jennifer Beile ’90s Style Icons We’re Still Inspired By Today

Ah, the ’90s. The decade of grunge, hip hop, pop, and preppy style that continues to inspire us today. If you didn’t grow up in the ’90s, chances are you’ve heard time and time again that they were the best time for fashion and music, and—though I may be biased—I have to agree.

There’s a reason why ’90s style trends are constantly coming back; the carefree spirit and attitude of ’90s fashion hasn’t been able to be recreated or replicated. Why fix something if it’s not broken?  Let’s celebrate by taking a look back at some of the biggest style icons of the decade.

 

90's style icons

Lisa Bonet
One of the most sought after young actresses in the ’80s and ’90s, Lisa Bonet has a rebellious, free-spirited, bohemian style all her own that we still covet today. Lisa’s daughter, actress Zoe Kravitz, has inherited her mother’s style and become a modern fashion icon in her own right.

 

Drew Barrymore
From grunge to happy hippie, Drew’s style embodies her free spirit and was as expressive as her contagious smile. As long as ’90s trends keep coming back in style, ’90s Drew will always be an inspiration!

 

Gwen Stefani
Mixing classic, punk, and athleisure style, there is no doubt (pun intended) that Gwen Stefani is a quintessential ’90s girl.

 

Winona Ryder
Before the legal controversies and her comeback with Stranger Things, Winona Ryder was a ’90s movie star and style icon. Her grunge style and attitude made her one of the “it” girls of the decade!

 

Kate Moss
Supermodel Kate Moss just has classic street style; we could literally wear the exact outfits today and be super on trend!

 

Jennifer Aniston
For over 20 years, Jennifer Aniston has been a consistent style icon, having crafted the perfect classic, effortless style we all crave.

February 22nd, 2018 by Jennifer Beile Crossroads Style Council Road Trip!

If you follow Crossroads on Instagram, you may have seen that the SoCal members of the Crossroads Style Council took a road trip to Santa Barbara together. We met early in the morning to drive up the beautiful coast to the Crossroads store on State Street, and we were challenged to  create an outfit in just one hour (you can see all those looks below!).

After styling up our looks (and collectively buying so many goodies!), we walked over to eat at the newly opened Smithy Kitchen + Bar, which was a hit! If you’re in the area, it’s a great place for a leisurely lunch break. After lunch, we stopped for a coffee refuel at The French Press and headed back to Los Angeles.

I had been to Santa Barbara only once before, and this trip really solidified that I am officially in love. The entire town is darling, especially the neighborhood the store is in! We would love to see you in your Crossroads neighborhood, where you eat, drink, and play! Hashtag #CrossroadsNeighborhood on Instagram to share your community with us.

Remember to hop over to the Crossroads Instagram and YouTube channel to see more from our day out!

September 21st, 2017 by Jennifer Beile 5 Next-Gen Fashion “It Girls” to Watch

Nepotism runs rampant in Hollywood; sometimes, it’s all about who you know. But it seems like more and more, we’re seeing next-gen celebrity children make their own claim to fame. Take a look at five next generation celebrity children who are becoming fashion it girls.

 

Kaia Gerber

next-gen

At just 16 years old, Kaia Gerber (daughter and lookalike of supermodel Cindy Crawford) has already modeled for Versace and been featured on the cover of Vogue. This year, she walked the runway for Marc Jacobs, Burberry, and Alexander Wang during Spring 2018 Fashion Week.

 

Sistine Stallone

Sylvester Stallone’s 19-year-old daughter is signed with IMG Models and was awarded Miss Golden Globes in 2017 (along with her two sisters). Sistine has already walked for Chanel and Dolce & Gabbana and shot an editorial for Harper’s Bazaar.

 

Sofia Richie

SofiaRichie

Lionel Richie’s daughter (whom you may also know as Nicole Richie’s sister), has been in the public eye for quite some time, but 2017 has her stepping into the limelight with her own work. With 2.7 million Instagram followers, a budding modeling portfolio, and growing influence as a street style star, we will be happy to see more from the youngest Richie.

 

Paris Jackson

ParisJackson

Daughter of the late Michael Jackson, Paris has dabbled in acting since 2011 and recently signed a modeling contract with IMG Models. She often uses her family name for good, speaking out and bringing awareness to those in need who don’t have her platform.

 

Lily-Rose Depp

LilyRoseDepp

Daughter of Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis, Lily-Rose has successfully launched her own career in acting and modeling. She has several feature films behind her and has worked with the likes of Chanel and Vogue.

July 27th, 2017 by Jennifer Beile 10 Iconic Princess Diana Fashion Moments

Although I was young when Princess Diana died, I vividly remember how much it impacted the world. Nations worldwide mourned for the loss of this beautiful soul. Princess Diana had a kind heart, was charismatic and seemed down-to-earth despite her larger-than-life title. A new HBO documentary, Diana, Our Mother: Her Life and Legacy, aired this week to commemorate the 20-year anniversary of her death, in which Prince William and Prince Harry fondly recall their mother’s life and legacy.

In memory of Princess Diana and as an ode to her love of fashion, I’ve highlighted some of her most iconic style moments.

The LBD Heard Around the World
Was it a strategic PR move to take over the headlines as her then-husband Prince Charles’ cheating scandal was exposed, or simply a coincidence that Princess Diana caught everyone’s eyes in this LBD?

 

Wedding Dress

A Wedding Dress with a Record-Breaking Train
With a 25 foot train, the longest in royal wedding history, Princess Diana stunned and wed Prince Charles in this dress as 700 million people watched from around the world.

 

Chic Mama To Be

Chic Mama-To-Be
Princess Diana did not lose her sense of style during her two pregnancies.

 

Dynasty Di

Dynasty Di
Nicknamed after the trend on hit ’80s soap opera Dynasty, Princess Diana often wore modern gowns with wide shoulders.

 

Dancing Diana

Velvet, sequins, and beading featured in this glamorous gown. Princess Diana stunned at a White House gala dinner in 1985, where she had her iconic dance with John Travolta. The dress has since then been auctioned off for charity, along with others from the Princess’s collection.

 

Radiant in Raspberry

Radiant in Raspberry
Princess Diana made many public appearances looking poised and beautiful, but this raspberry Victor Edelstein gown is one of my favorites, and I can envision it being worn on a red carpet today.

 

Pretty in Pink

Pretty in Pink
Princess Diana often wore skirt suits in bright, eye-catching colors.

 

White Hot

White Hot
Shy Di no more, Princess Diana pushed the envelopes of usual modest royal wardrobe rules and appeared in sheath numbers like this white Versace dress.

A Casual Princess
Princess Diana wasn’t always dressed to the nines in expensive gowns; she looked stunning and put together in casual looks, like this colorful jumper and rain boots outfit.

 

Redefining a Staple

Redefining a Staple
Princess Diana’s most memorable fashion moments are filled with countless couture gowns and chic suits, but her casual looks stand the test of time. Her blue jeans, blazer, and baseball cap combo is still a trendy look today.

June 29th, 2017 by Jennifer Beile 7 Reasons Gal Gadot is Our New Crush

The name on everyone’s lips these days: Gal Gadot. And it’s no wonder; she stars in the first female-led superhero blockbuster (it’s about time!) and is getting rave reviews for her performance. Gal encompasses everything we could ever dream of in a role model—for ourselves and for young girls everywhere—and has charmed her way into our hearts. Here are seven reasons Gal Gadot is everyone’s newest girl crush.

 

gal gadot

1. She’s a badass on screen and in life.

Gal not only plays Wonder Woman on screen, she is somewhat of a real life Wonder Woman. From serving two years as a combat trainer in the Israel Defense Force to filming Wonder Woman re-shoots at five months pregnant (I was napping everyday when I was preggo!), Gal has proven herself to be a real-life badass.

 

NotAfraidtobeReal

2. She’s not afraid to be real.

Gal isn’t afraid to be honest and open in her photos and interviews. She knows the celebrity life isn’t always as glamorous as it may seem.

 

Humble

3. She is humble.

“You made this movie what it is, and your love and support for this character and myself are not to be taken for granted,” Gal says in a recently shared thank you video that shows how grateful she is for all the support.

It is refreshing to have someone so humble for fans to admire. See the video here.

 

FemaleEmpowerment

4. She’s all about female empowerment.

Bringing Wonder Woman to the big screen is only fitting for Gal, who has always been vocal about female equality. In an interview with ESPN, she is asked what she wants her daughters to learn from her and answers, “How to love themselves, [and] to not always try to get validation from others.”

In another interview, with Variety, she says, “Growing up, I had Superman and Batman to look up to. All the boys and all the girls, that’s what we had. I think that it’s so important that we have also strong female figures to look up to.”

5. She’s a family woman.

Gal makes time for her two beautiful daughters, whom she instills a strong sense of self in, and a loving husband while maintaining a busy, action-packed career.

 

SupportiveHusband

6. She has a super supportive husband.

Gal’s hubby of 9 years, Yaron, has always known what we are just learning: Gal is truly a wonderful woman. Yaron shared this sweet snap on Instagram sporting a tee that shows his support.

 

FlatsOnRedCarpet

7. She wears flats on the red carpet.

Gal understands the importance of comfort and isn’t afraid to rock a pair of flats on the red carpet. You know she’ll be ending the night without heel-induced foot pain! When asked why she chose flats, she had a simple answer: “It’s more comfortable! That’s it.”
