Mischa Barton Loves Julian J Smith

Last week I posted Mischa Barton wearing a Julian J Smith Fall 2010 dress.

Well it looks like she invested in the whole collection, because she’s been spotted around London wearing 2 other pieces from the same collection.

The strange thing is all the pieces are remarkably alike due to the zig-zag print.

Surely it would’ve have been wiser to pick other pieces without the print from the range to mix things up a little.

What started off being a smart style move for Mischa Barton has ended up looking very samey and shows that she lacks imagination when it comes to creating her own style.

She even wears the same brogues.

I really wish she would please invest in some quality hair extensions.

In the space of a week she’s gone from Lindsay Lohan to Britney Spears.

Olivia Palermo Loves…Bensoni

Olivia Palermo is a style icon, New York socialite, star of “The City”.

What I love about her style is that she never seems to go for the obvious and she’s always supports up-and-coming designers.

Her current favourite is Bensoni.

The design duo – Benjamin Channing Clyburn and Sonia Yoon – create flirty, feminine statement pieces which suit Olivia’s style so it’s no wonder she’s head-over-heels in love.

Back in February she wore a sky blue Bensoni dress contrasting it with black tights and a black patent belt.

Her hooded Paddington Bear-esqe Bensoni coat was the perfect winter warm-up look to keep the cold weather at bay during London Fashion Week.

Olivia caused a bit of a ruckus wearing a Bensoni Spring 2010 ensemble to the “Guess By Marciano & ELLE Event” which you would’ve seen on “The City”.

I love the combination of colours, patterns and texture with this look. It may seem like a lot is going on, but it all works well together.

Finally my favourite Bensoni look was the leopard print silk dress she wore to the Elie Saab Fall 2010 Couture show.

I met her at this show, and she’s was such a sweetie. That show really gives her a bad rep.

I loved her accessories with this look. The leopard print belt is particularly interesting. It could’ve been overkill, but for me it’s perfection.

You can see more of Bensoni work by viewing their Fall 2010 collection on Style.com.

Rachel Bilson Loves…Denim Shorts

Whilst some of us can’t wait so swap our jeans for denim shorts when summer arrives. Others shudder at the thought as it evokes images of Britney Spears wearing her denim shorts with a tank top sans bra.

Thankfully we have people like Rachel Bilson to show us the right way to wear denim shorts.

I’ve only felt the need to own one pair of denim shorts – which I only tend to wear on vacation – but Rachel Bilson owns several pairs in different lengths and colour washes.

The key to this look is to keep everything else simple.

Rachel does that as she pairs her shorts with simple tees, plaid shirts and sandals.

Yesterday she added a pair of Lanvin pom pom sandals to add a touch of colour to her look.

Below are a selection of denim jeans at different price points.

Andie Boy shorts Topshop.com £30
Current/Elliott The Boyfriend low-rise denim shorts Net-A-Porter.com £155
Citizens of Humanity Gibson denim shorts Net-A-Porter.com £235

Katie Holmes’ Obsession – Lanvin ‘Happy’ Bag

If you’ve followed this blog for a while, you’ll be familiar with Katie Holmes and her bag obsessions.

Her current favourite is her Lanvin ‘Happy’ bag.

Earlier today she was spotted leaving her New York apartment carrying the bag, which she also carried yesterday.

Before that she was spotted headed out to the ‘Tony Awards’ carrying the bag and whilst returning home carrying her bag and a script.

Her Lanvin ‘Happy’ bag is big enough for everyday use. Convenient enough not to get in the way when she’s carrying her daughter Suri and it’s beautifully chic.

The bag has the trademark ribbon intertwined through the chain strap, which will always remind me of Chanel.

Dressed up or dressed down it’s a beautiful bag.

Amanda Seyfried’s Obsession – Valentino Garavani Summer Flower Tote

Actress Amanda Seyfried at present can’t leave home without her Valentino Garavani summer flower tote.

She’s been spotted carrying it on several occasions from arriving at talk shows, to walking her dog and she’s even used it as a gym bag.

The colourful floral tote is perfect for the spring/summer season.

The black supple nappa leather design is covered on one side with multi-oloured flowers.

It’s unique, feminine and it certainly stands out.

Could you see yourself falling in love with this tote like Amanda?
