Royal Style Stars You Probably Never Heard Of

July 25th // Comment Here

While Kate Middleton has certain stolen our hearts as she struts her stuff all around the world as the Duchess of Cambridge, she has quite a few royal friends who also enjoy dabbling in personal style! Meet the royal stars you may not know yet…

Queen Jetsun Pema of Bhutan

Jetsun Pema made waves when her husband, the king of Bhutan, swore off the national tradition of polygamy and said she would be his only wife. Since then, she’s been known for her ability to wear refined yet modern casualwear one day and traditional, brightly colored garb the next.

Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge

Of course, Kate Middleton is one of the world’s biggest fashion icons; seriously there are blogs are devoted to analyzing her every outfit and her designer picks sell out within hours. She’s known for recycling outfits and mixing budget-friendly pieces with couture duds.

Marie-Chantal, Crown Princess of Greece

Marie-Chantal had a charmed upbringing: Her father headed a multi-billion-dollar duty-free shopping business, and as a teenager, she worked for Andy Warhol. On her wedding day, Marie-Chantal wore a pearl-encrusted Valentino gown. She later combined her business-savvy roots with her love for fashion and started her own children’s clothing line.

Mary, Crown Princess of Denmark

This princess’s style is world-renowned, topping Kate Middleton’s in a recent poll of the world’s most stylish royal, just barely. Adding to her awards, Mary made it on Vanity Fair’s annual ‘International Best-Dressed List’ just a few years ago and is Patron of the Copenhagen Fashion Summit.

Elisabeth von Thurn und Taxis

This German princess published an online journal called The Princess Diaries about high fashion and high society until 2010. She went on to become an editor at large for Vogue, covering Fashion Week and society events, expertly dressed of course!

Princess Beatrice of York


After wearing what may go down as the world’s craziest fascinator to the Royal Wedding, Princess Beatrice caught a ton of flak. But she took that as a style lesson, promptly hired a stylist, and has been wowing the world with her demure yet elegant style ever since.

Charlene, Princess of Monaco

The Princess of Monaco has only held her royal title since 2011, but she’s already become a permanent fixture in the fashion world, favoring classic looks and neutral beige and black. A former Olympic competitive swimmer, Charlene wore a Giorgio Armani Privé wedding dress and counts Armani and Akris among her favorite designers.

Queen Rania of Jordan

A devout Muslim, this gorgeous royal respects the modesty guidelines of her faith while maintaining her own individual flair. Rania prefers sheath dresses and styles that cover her shoulders from Elie Saab and Dior, but chooses to leave her hair uncovered. How radiant is her style?

Which of these royal style stars would you like to swap closets with? I’m dying to get into Charlene, Princess of Monaco’s closet! Such pretty styles in every with every new title!

How to Wear the ‘Model-Off-Duty’ Look

July 22nd // Comment Here

You’ve seen it plastered all over your favorite fashion blogs: ever so cool street style from girls who take sartorial chic to a whole new level. It’s not quite high fashion the way a story in your favorite magazine would be, but it’s not top-to-bottom precisely styled like a mannequin in a window, either. It’s somewhere in between, that badass meets elegant look – that’s a model’s off duty style. How do you achieve that ‘you-can-photograph-me-if-you-want’ truly effortless look? Here are three tips to get you in the right direction:

1. It can’t be perfect.

One of the keys to achieving this look is to really embrace a relaxed, casual attitude about the whole thing. You don’t need to be too prim and proper–think great fitting clothes that still feel relaxed and comfortable. Jeans and tee work perfectly as a base. Or perhaps a skater skirt and an old leather jacket you love.

2. Try one ‘It’ piece.

To make it even easier, focus on only having one statement piece. Be it a stunning handbag or a fierce pair of boots, one ‘It’ item that everything else centers around is all you need. Be sure that you don’t overcomplicate an outfit with too many prints or colors – you want it to be casual, you know?

3. Walk the walk.

If you search for street style photos you love, you’ll notice one unifying theme: great posture. It elongates you body and exudes confidence even in a still photograph. Walk tall and confidently, and a great walk will ensure you’re wearing the clothes–not the other way around! Also, make sure you wear comfortable shoes – you don’t want to be tripping over your feet in statement heels that are 5” high while off duty, do you?

What’s your favorite model-off-duty look? I’m totally going for this look by Miranda Kerr – she’s just so stinkin’ cute!

Why Audrey Hepburn Stuns in Breakfast at Tiffany’s

July 20th // 2 Comments

One of the most beautiful movies to come from the 1960’s, Audrey Hepburn stars as a dreaming girl who lives life in a frivolous, yet down to earth manner in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Here are the top reasons that her character, Holly Golightly, is easily on the top of my list for most amazing fictional characters ever!

She Eats What She Wants

All too often we see women feeling pressured into eating the “diet foods”…not Holly! She eats what she wants when she wants it! Eating donuts and coffee first thing in the morning? OK!

She Dresses in Style

For a woman to be expected to keep up her appearance isn’t as required today as it was back in the 60’s. A woman who chooses to value herself and show that outwardly by taking the time to style herself is a confident forward thinking woman in my mind.

She Decorates in New Ways

There has never been a film with a bathtub couch before Audrey Hepburn debuted this gorgeous piece of furniture in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Why not take a chance – go with what YOU like!

She Doesn’t Always Play By the Rules

Yea, she legitimately stole these crazy animal masks… that, by the way, I wouldn’t condone stealing…. but still! She shows us that playing by the rules is limiting and even suppressive at times. Break out of the box and do something different. It’ll inspire feelings of confidence, inspiration, and general happiness for sure!

She Knows How to Be Friends with Everybody

…Well except her landlord, but that’s his fault – not hers! Holly is the life of a party, there’s no doubt about it! She is always sure to see all her friends, even if just for a moment! She showers them with love and gratitude.

She Never Stops Dreaming

Even while she may not be able to afford the luxury of Tiffany’s, she never gives up on her dream! And when she comes close to fulfilling her dreams, she appreciates every little step along the way.

She Never Underestimates the Power of Red Lipstick

Even when everything around you feels like it’s crumbling down, flip open your mirror, uncap your lipstick, and pucker up because everything is going to be all right. It’s psychologically proven that the color red ignites emotions of confidence and a “make it happen” attitude.

She Rocks the Timeless Monochromatic Trend

While our style calendar may be experiencing a rebirth of this trend, Audrey Hepburn knew how to rock this look long before it graced any catwalk. Take it from the pro – pair your girly separates in black and white for a flawless look.

What do you think – does she win in your mind? Let me know your thoughts on this super classy lady in the comments below!

Stylish Celeb BFF’s

July 19th // Comment Here

Who doesn’t love a bunch of beautiful celebrities who have true friendships on and off the red carpet? They’re just like us – while we may not have as fancy of friends as they do – in a big group there’s always that one girl who gets you and makes everything more fun!

The girl you can totally make eyes at and know what she’s thinking, the one you’d totally share a tent with while on a camping adventure…Yea, I’m talking about your absolute best friend! Let’s celebrate all these beautiful girls and their amazing friendships by counting it down:

 Alexa Chung & Poppy Delevingne

After meeting over 10 years ago at an early model casting, these two became fast friends. Between sharing shoots, writing for the same magazine, and skinny-dipping in Cannes after downing some whiskey, these two are true friends who stick by each other’s side and build one another up continually. Such pretty faces with big loving hearts for one another!

Cressida Bonas & Princess Beatrice

While Cressida and Prince Harry may not be boyfriend-girlfriend any more, that doesn’t stop Princess Beatrice from furthering their friendship. There’s a great amount of loyalty that goes into their friendship even through the break up. To see Princess Beatrice still reaching out is such a wonderful and thoughtful thing a true friend would do!

Kristen Stewart & Riley Keough

Despite not carrying the royal title, Riley Keough is The King’s granddaughter. The King being Elvis of course! Bonding over their shared personal style, music taste, and nearly identical hairstyles, it’s great to see that Kristen Stewart can actually smile after all!

Taylor Swift, Kate Bosworth & Karlie Kloss

Taylor Swift can easily be called Hollywood’s most popular girlfriend due to the fact that she genuinely cares about her friends and has so very many of them. The difference between Taylor’s friendships and other Hollywood stars is that she remembers when she was ‘a normal person’ outside of Hollywood and applies the same principles of loyalty, honesty, and true friendship to each of her relationships!

Vanessa Hudgens & Selena Gomez

Since their time on the Disney Channel, these two have been long-time friends. They’re absolutely adorable together, especially knowing that they were both Disney child-stars. Being able to see that connection stick through the years is so great!

Courtney Cox & Jennifer Aniston

It’s absolutely no surprise that these two ended up becoming such close “Friends” after staring opposite each other in the hit TV show all through the 90’s. To see their friendship blossom as their careers propelled forward after their first stint together is incredible! Such beauties!

Who Wore It Better?

July 17th // 1 Comment

Celebrities are always showing up on the red carpet wearing fabulous gowns by the top designers, but what happens when two A-listers end up at the same party wearing the same exact dress? It’s too late to change and half the time they don’t even notice it until PEOPLE Magazine prints it in their weekly offerings of tabloid exploitations. Showing up to the same party shouldn’t be that big of a deal if they accessorize in different styles, right? You be the style judge of these girls who accidentally wore the same dress!

Personally, I think it’s totally fine for two people to show up wearing the same design – granted they style it up with accessories differently. What do you think? Share with me your picks in the comments below!
