Longtime stylist Jennifer Rade calls herself the Wicked Witch of Wardrobe, and I'll add to that the busiest stylist working today. I had the pleasure of meeting Jennifer a few years back at a Gap Bra Bar event for which she was the spokesperson. I recall the sassy stylist referring to Angelina Jolie, whom she works with closely, simply as Angie. In addition, she's styled music videos (Avril Lavigne, Marilyn Manson, Pink) and commercials, the most recent one being the Jovovich-Hawk for Target one. Jen took a few minutes out of her hectic day to chat with Fab about Angie, her style icons, and what every girl should carry in their purse.
What are your three favorite Angelina Jolie outfits that you've styled?
I think Oscars from 2004 (the cream Marc Bouwer), Mr. & Mrs. Smith premiere (the leather Versace), and Ocean's 13 premiere in Cannes (yellow Peter Dundas for Ungaro).
If your house was burning down and you only had time to save one clothing item, what would it be and why?
Tough question. I would probably try to grab my great grandmother's purses since they've been around so long. Really, I would save nothing other than myself, my husband, and our dogs, because clothing is replaceable.

The day you realize you probably have enough LBDs to last you a lifetime (me, yesterday) but can't get enough of the classic noir color, consider the little black jacket, or what I am hereby coining the LBJ. Just as everyday wearable and sophisticated as the LBD, the LBJ adds a good needed dose of tailoring to any loosey goosey look. When in a rush, the LBJ is guaranteed to get you out of a bind.
Going to the beach doesn't mean you can't look cute in the little you have on. Prime example is thequeenbee and her friend. These stylish beach buddies are looking Fab in their color-blocked beach cover-ups. I love the combination of bright and bold colors. Unfortunately, she didn't mention what her friend has on — write back and let us know!
Here's what thequeenbee (pictured left) has on:
- Tank: Top Shop
- Skirt: Top Shop
- Necklace: Love Pink by Victoria's Secret
Congrats to thequeenbee!

While researching for Ungaro's fashion metamorphosis, I delved into the New York Fashion Week archives. So fun! One thing that occurred to me was how young and innocent today's models were back in the early '90s. Well, duh, they were younger and more innocent, so it's not an earth-shattering revelation. Still, I thought it would be fun to lead you through the transformations of some of today's models: Carmen Kass (left at Ralph Lauren, Spring '03), Gisele Bundchen, Jacquetta Wheeler, Erin Wasson, Tiiu Kuik, and Natalia Vodianova. Let me tell you — they were beautiful then, they're beautiful now.
There have been a couple of times where I've been duped with the whole "up to" a certain percentage off deal so I always make sure to check out the merchandise before I dutifully report to you. This sale is totally legit with over 300 items marked 70 percent off — wowsers.
Granted, most items are leftovers from the previous Fall and Winter season but if you scrounge around, I'm sure you can find a couple of Springworthy pieces. Check out this Rory Beca Striped Trapeze Dress, ($92, originally $308). Take away the stockings, pair with nude open-toe heels, long pearls, and you're good to go. For those who don't feel like using your creative juices, select Spring items are also marked 20 to 50 percent off.
It appears Nicky Hilton has more than a small crush on this bold combination. Let's investigate shall we? We noticed her quite a few times trotting about town in it, sometimes just topping off an all black look with vibrant pink accessories, sometimes rotating in key pieces such as the J. Crew blazer or flippy little mini. It's definitely a fun way to stand out and also a nod to the ongoing brights trend. I'm going to go ahead and say that I much prefer it to her sisters's infamous monochromatic pink outfits.

Not only did I adore the wide patent piped belts in Gucci's Spring collection, I also went ga-ga for these Gucci Corset Patent Heels ($740). They have a bit of the lace-up motif that's popular right now, but at the same time they're super slick. But that price is far from super . . .
