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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Who are your favorite next-gen fashion it girls?
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?
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.
Princess Diana did not lose her sense of style during her two pregnancies.
Nicknamed after the trend on hit ’80s soap opera Dynasty, Princess Diana often wore modern gowns with wide shoulders.
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
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
Princess Diana often wore skirt suits in bright, eye-catching colors.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.”
If I could choose any “It girl” celeb to start a clothing line, I would choose Alexa Chung. While she has done design collaborations in the past, the time has finally come: her namesake clothing line ALEXACHUNG is here. After being teased on Instagram, the line was finally released in May, and it’s exactly what I hoped for.
We’ve already seen celebs flaunting pieces from the ALEXACHUNG collection—my favorite has been Selena Gomez wearing the Stripy Mohair Vest seen here. From chic, modern staples to funky ’70s-inspired pieces, ALEXACHUNG gives us the breath of fresh air we needed to style up our summer. Take a look at some of my favorite pieces below!
