How to Dress for Your Body Type, Starlet Style

In the last post I asked you to forget what you look like and just focus on the things you love.  Today I’m going to ask you to focus on what you look like, but this will not be your typical “How to dress for your body type” post.  I am not going to tell you to classify yourself as a fruit (pear, apple, etc).  I never felt like I fit into any of those premade categories anyway (although I came across the lesser known “strawberry” body type and I think that may suit me the best.)

How to Find Your Personal Starlet Style

There’s one thing Hollywood Legends have in common (besides money, of course) and that’s a signature look.  True Glamour Icons think of themselves as a brand, and they rarely stray from that.  Can you imagine Elizabeth Taylor without diamonds?  Or Gwen Stefani without her cool girl chic look?  Of course not… that’s because these Starlets found their “look.”  If you are going to be an Everyday Starlet you need to find a signature look that suits you.  Finding your style is a long process, and it may (and probably will) evolve over time.

10 Reasons Missy Piggy is an Everyday Starlet

This weekend the latest Muppets movie is being released, so I wanted to give tribute to my absolute favorite Muppet and style icon: Miss Piggy.  She may be livestock, but she is an Everyday Starlet if there ever was one.  So here are 10 reasons that Miss Piggy is Glamour’s Most Wanted…

1. She never strays from her signature hair color

Miss Piggy may go short or long, bangs or no bangs, but she never strays from her signature blonde

Angela & Roi: Fashion meets Philanthropy

It’s no secret that Starlet’s love fashion… but they also have a heart of gold.  Many Old Hollywood Starlets had charities that they took very seriously.  Brigitte Bardot was and is dedicated to protecting the rights of animals. 

Starlets are notorious for being animal lovers.  As I’ve mentioned before, I suspect many Old Hollywood Starlet’s probably would have been vegetarians and/or vegans had it been more of an accessible diet back then.  I also believe that many Old Hollywood Starlet’s would have been devoted to faux fur and vegan leather, had that been an option in Old Hollywood. 

Khole Kardashian’s faux fur coat is Old Hollywood Glam and animal friendly


In addition to animals, Starlets have been crusaders in human rights.  Elizabeth Taylor was a major voice of HIV/Aids research. 

So any time Philanthropy meets Fashion, Starlets are on board.  That is why I am happy to tell you about Angela & Roi, a handbag company that uses all vegan materials and donates to charities based on the color of the handbag you purchase. 

For example, if you purchase this classy Sunday Wine Tote (which is SOO Gracy Kelly BTW), a portion of the purchase goes to HIV/Aid research



There are so many bags and charities to choose from, be sure to check out the Angela & Roi website for their full selection and details about each charity.  And if you do purchase a bag, post a pic in the comments section and let me know what you think.

Note: I am not getting any payment to endorse this product.  The company reached out to me about posting a blog, and after checking out their website, I thought it would be something that my readers would enjoy.

Best Dressed at the 2014 Oscars

Not every Starlet goes to the Academy Awards, so if your invitation got lost in the mail don’t worry… the truly cool people watch the Awards at home and then just go to the after-parties.  I watched from home and I was a little disappointed that more of the dresses didn’t wow me (I’m looking at you Amy Adams), but these are my favorite glamour dresses of this year’s Oscars…

E! New Correspondent Giuliana Rancic looked like a fairy princess in her gorgeous gown
And Lupita Nyong’o definitely had a fairy tale moment in this Cinderella inspired look
I was loving Jennifer Garner’s fringe
My new girl crush Chrissy Teigen looked so pretty in floral
Cate Blanchett picked a perfect dress to win an Oscar in
Charlize Theron wowed…as she always does
But my absolute, without a doubt, favorite of the night was Kate Hudson…
My only complaint was that she took the cape off to present… but other than that I was so happy to see Old Hollywood Glamour on the Red Carpet.
Who were your Best and Worst Dressed of the night?

Engaging Romance

Valentine’s Day is coming and romance is in the air…. Starlets love a good romance if it is a romantic comedy…. And Starlets love jewelry…. So this is the perfect time to look at Starlet engagement rings.  When it comes to engagement rings, Starlet’s go big or go nothing at all.  

Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio opted for just a glamorous wedding band… and with one this fabulous who needs an engagement ring.  This is the perfect option for women who want something fabulous but simpler. 
Audrey Hepburn’s ring… or should I say rings… are the perfect option for a fashionista (I’m actually surprised you don’t see more of this).  She had two wedding bands, one in white gold and one in rose gold, so she could mix and match with her outfits.  She could wear both together and get a layered look, or where whichever one went with her outfit that day.  She paired them with an engagement ring that was really a wedding band of diamonds.  The whole thing is classic and unique at the same time… just like Audrey…
Now for the big rings…
Grace Kelly’s ring is stunning and timeless…. like her… but she almost ended up with a colored stone.  Her Prince originally brought a different ring but switched it with this beauty when he saw the Hollywood trend of a large diamond.  Lucky girl!
Jayne Mansfield’s ring, fittingly, was glamorous and over the top
And we can’t talk about big rings without talking about Elizabeth Taylor.  She got married many times but this diamond ring was THE ring….
Now what does one do if the marriage doesn’t work out?  You could do what Dita Von Teese did.  She got this stunner from Marilyn Manson…
And after their split, she had the ring redesigned to make it into a beautiful cocktail ring
Obviously your Everyday Starlet can’t afford an over the top diamond like some of these Hollywood Starlets… but the secret is that each ring perfectly suited each Starlet’s personality.  So when looking at rings, keep that in mind.  It’s not the price of the ring, it’s how well it suits your unique personality.  Because finding a perfect engagement ring is like finding the perfect man, when you get it right… it’s priceless!
