Wow, so many of you are smitten with Rachel Bilson's sidewalk style. The girl is consistently cute in boots and scarves, but that's just the problem for me — she's too consistent and not spontaneous enough sometimes. Petite fashion-maven Ashley Olsen, on the other hand, always spices things up with chunky heels and funky accessories. She has this unique ability to take a tired trend like leggings and make it look chic and new. So it should come as no surprise that Ashley gets my vote for Best Sidewalk Style for 2007!

Though Mischa's been going through a bit of an identity crisis, I'm still routing for the girl. While her pants here can definitely be characterized as "mom jeans" I'm crushing on her Matthew Williamson leopard top and glittery Lanvin flats — this is not a cheap outfit! While she still needs to fix that brassy hair of hers, I think things are looking up for Mischa heading into 2008!
I've been inspired by the floral madness going on in the Balenciaga Spring 2008 collection, and this gorgeous red silk clutch ($28) seemed like a good way to get the Look For Less. The foldover shape is a modern touch, but it still retains that timeless vintage appeal.
I've never been a fan of jumpsuits and this Marciano Bridget Jumpsuit ($248) lets me see why. They're unflattering and cheesy —especially when they have a loud print. I mean, why would you voluntarily pay that much to look like a walking fashion disaster? Do you love it or hate it?
Don't you just love the holidays? Even when all the festivities are over, we have post-holiday sales to look forward to. eLuxury is currently having a post-holiday sale where sale items are an additional 20 percent off. Score!
Don't you love this Marc by Marc Jacobs Stretch Wool Flannel Dress ($236, originally $398)? It's a good investment considering it can double as a coat. Happy post-holiday shopping!
Taste the rainbow: that seemed to be 2007's mantra. Yellow, fuchsia, and cobalt blue surfaced this Summer, and orange, red, turquoise, purple, green, and even white are carrying the wave into Fall and Winter. As the fascination with vivid brights trickled down from runway to real way, The Hills girls Lauren Conrad and Whitney Port both picked up on the trend, while Beyonce looked straight from Oz in her emerald gown, and Rachel Bilson rocked a turquoise minidress. Learn it and love it, ladies: color will be the way of life come Spring 2008.
Hervé Léger is one of the most coveted brands out there right now and we're not going to stop seeing it anytime soon. Hervé Léger by Max Azria will stage its first fashion show since the mid-'90s on Sunday, February 3 at 11 a.m. in Bryant Park, during New York Fashion Week. This will mark a historic day in fashion: the first time Hervé Léger will be showing in the U.S (the collection was originally shown in Paris). It will also be the first time that an American designer, via the French-Tunisian Max Azria (left), will be producing three major fashion shows for three different collections during New York Fashion Week. So many record-breaking events — I can't wait!
Visit Pepe Jeans London's website and you are greeted by artsy and colorful ads featuring Sienna Miller. They're jagged, imperfect, and a bit Andy Warhol-ish. You think it's a coincidence that the famous artist is to be remembered through a denim collection for the brand? I think not! But back to the ads. They are eye candy in every sense of the term. They definitely mesmerize and leave you wanting more. My only concern is that you end up focusing more on the artistic aspect as opposed to the clothes. What do you think?
