Kate Moss For Topshop Fall Collection In Stores & Online Today

Even though the closest Top Shop is in NYC (boo), the online store is just as fun! Today, Kate Moss' collection for Top Shop is available! Enjoy!

New Addition to the TODAY Show

While I usally blog about fashion and celebrities, I do pay attention to what is going on in the media as it is part of my real job, afterall.

Yesterday it was announced that former first daughter, Jenna Bush Hager, will be a monthly correspondent for the TODAY Show, covering education issues.

I think the TODAY Show's selection is great as Jenna will be really be able to speak to issues surrounding education as she is currently a school teacher in Baltimore and has authored two books.

I think that her level of celebrity will allow her to bring to light important issues surroundng education, urban education, women and children's issues and literacy. I think she is a good pick in that people will be interetsed in what she has to say--whether they like her or not!

"I like my money right where I can see it...hanging in my closet."

As an HGTV junkie, I love watching all the style, home makeover and design shows. And what is the one room that is oh so very important to every woman? THE CLOSET! In fact, yesterday my roommate and I were watching HGTV and she said to me, "All I want in life is really big, walk-in closet."

In the Sex & the City movie, Big built Carrie the dreamiest closet and often I have wondered what goodies celebrities' closets are filled with. lets us take a peek into the closets of some of our faves like Eva Longoria Parker, Fergie and Nicky Hilton among many others. To see these celebrity closets, click here. Enjoy!


VH1 is bring back its "VH1 Divas" concert, and will be airing live from the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) Howard Gilman Opera House on September 17, 2009. The show will air live at 9 PM EST and will be hosted by Paula Abdul.

This year's Divas include: Miley Cyrus, Adele, Leona Lewis, Kelly Clarkson and Jordin Sparks. I am pretty excited for this year's show! All of the Divas are very young ( I think all under 25 or 30 years), but all VERY talented!

Additional presenters, special guests and performers will be announced in the coming weeks.

Wear these: Sequin Pumps

Last month I had my first encounter with sequin pumps as my cousin Bekka wore the cutest silver sequin pumps to my brother's wedding. She must have been on to something with this trend because fashion-forward celebs like Rachel Bilson and Lauren Conrad have both been spotted wearing them recently. Here are a few of my favorite pairs, ranging in price from $50 to $950. Enjoy!

Miu Miu, $950

Marc by Marc Jacobs, $225

Oh Deer! Blackberrie, $50

Ruffles are girly and feminine--and a trend I have enjoyed this past year.

Ruffles are back for fall but with a tougher, more structured look. I LOVE this dress from French Connection.

PYT (pretty young thing)

Khloe Kardashian has recently been looking great! She wore this outfit yesterday at an event in Malibu and I love the look. This is totally something I would wear!

Added bonus: Her top is from H&M!

Have to See: The September Issue

When we are young, September means back to school shopping and Friday night football games. But as we get older, we tap into our inner fashionistas, and anxiously delve into the September issues of our favorite fashion magazines. Ahhhh, fall fashion...this coupled with the glamorous behind the scenes look at how it all comes together it exactly why I can not wait to see The September Issue.

The September Issue is the highly anticipated new documentary about the making of Vogue's September 2007 issue, which was also the biggest installment in Vogue magazine's history weighing in at over four pounds!

It opens in NYC on August 28 and in LA and other cities on September 11. Anyone know if it will be shown here in DC?
