Kell on Earth

{PR Powerhouse, Kelly Cutrone with former assistant Stephanie and new assistant, Andrew}
Kell on Earth, the new reality show documenting the hectic life of People’s Revolution founder, Kelly Cutrone premiered on Bravo last night and I am already hooked! Between the stresses that go on at Camp Zoe on The Rachel Zoe Project and now Kell on Earth, with it’s uber-stressed staffers whose major dark undereye circles tell just how sleep-deprived and stressed they must really be, I am convinced that fashion has to be one of the most cut-throat and demanding industries to work in. I felt a little stressed just watching the show, but it is all so fascinating.
You may remember Kelly as Lauren Conrad’s boss on The Hills and later as Whitney Port’s mentor on The City. Cutrone gets major props from me as she is the owner and founder of an incredibly successful, international fashion PR firm that she has built and sustained herself.
Did anyone tune in last night? What did you think? Will you be watching this season? If you missed the premiere episode last night, you can watch it here.

Red Carpet Recap: The SAG Awards

SAG Awards 2010

{The cast of Nine looked radiant at the 2010 SAG Awards}
In my opinion, the ladies seemed to fare much better on the red carpet for the 2010 SAG Awards than they did at last week’s Golden Globes. Some may argue that fewer fashion risks were taken, but let’s face it…risks don’t always ensure positive results. While some may have played it closer to the safe side, there were fewer disappointment’s on last night’s red carpet (at least in my humble opinion).
sag lea michele2
One of my favorite looks of the night was Glee’s Lea Michele in this gorgeous green Catherine Malandrino gown. Not only is the color absolutely beautiful (it happens to be a personal fave), but the fabric drapes her body perfectly. I love, love, love this look!
sag kate hudson Kate Hudson seems to be feeling “white-hot” this awards season, opting for a white dress yet again. I happen to like this Emilio Pucci gown much better than the ill-fitting number she chose for the Globes. It is sexy and daring, like Kate herself.

sag marion cotillard

Marion Cotillard looked fabulous in this Elie Saab. This is a woman who takes fashion risks and just about always gets it right. But alas, she is French!
Snap31 Kyra Sedgwick’s ethereal Vera Wang is beautiful. I love the accent of the grey sash and embroidery. So lovely!

sag christina applegate

While Christina Applegate’s dress isn’t the most exciting, it is elegant and flattering. The color and shape look gorgeous on her.

sag penelope

Some thought Penélope Cruz played it too safe in this black, embellished L’Wren Scott dress. Perhaps, but the woman is smoldering. She would look amazing in a potato sack!

sag carey mulligan

How adorable is An Education’s Carrie Mulligan? This beautiful, red Lanvin gown accentuates her gamine features perfectly.
sage sandra bullock Now, on to the risk-takers. I’ve read mixed reviews of Sandra Bullock’s Alexander McQueen gown. It seems some people thought the embellishment was too much. I though the silhouette was gorgeous on her and actually like the cobalt embroidery.

sag diane kruger

Just when I thought Diane Kruger could do now wrong sartorially, she showed up to last week’s Globes in a poufy, ruffly, cotton candy pink concoction, that quite frankly, I just couldn’t wrap my head around. In my eyes, she redeemed herself at the SAG Awards in this mustard yellow Jason Wu gown. I happen to like this color in casual clothing and while I probably would have preferred to see the gown in a different color, the shape is lovely and she pulls it off.

toni colette sag 10

So, I can’t fully decide how I feel about Toni Colette’s Rafael Cennamo number. I like the gorgeous turquoise and gold accents (how amazing is her jewelry here?) and I think it flatters her quite well, but the ruffles may be too much. I think if the bottom of the dress were a bit different, it would be a definite hit. On another note, I don’t think Toni has ever looked better. She has looked so gorgeous and radiant lately!

Stella & Dot S/S 2010 Giveaway

spring palm beach

I am still very excited about Stella and Dot’s new Spring / Summer 2010 line! Inspired by travel (right up my alley!), the new line features collections which draw inspiration from various places. The bright colors of the Palm Beach collection really resonate with me right now.

spring palm

One of my favorite pieces is the chartreuse Palm Necklace, made of glass beads on hand knotted turquoise silk thread. It features a starfish brooch dotted by hand-set pave glass stones. It looks great layered or on its own and is extremely versatile. “Michelle Obama’s daytime inaugural dress color. Pantone’s color of the season. This is the piece to instantly bring a favorite outfit up to date with a splash of whimsy. Wear as a single strand, doubled, tripled, with the Starfish brooch or without, with another brooch in back or front.” It can be worn seven different ways!
