If there was a girl I had to deem representative of feminine and fun LA style it would be Nicky Hilton. She can be flashy fun, but she can also pull in the reigns and be sophisticated. This look softly portrays the lazy days of Summer. It's monochrome; her dress, Balenciaga bag, and wedges are ultralight hued. Speaking of the dress: Does anyone know who it's by?! This dress has been the thorn in my side all week and I now bring it to you, fine Fab readers, to help me ID it. It's adorable. The crocheted neckline, the buttons and the subtle ikat print are sundress perfection. She wears gold aviators and oversized hoops for bling effect, and her wedges have a vintage feel.

We love the glamorous Dita von Teese. When we thought we spotted Dita on the sidewalk (rare), in flats (rarer), carrying an Urban Outfitters shopping bag (rarest), we digressed. Who is this Dita and what has she done with our Dita? We quickly realized this isn't our Dita; it's a carbon copy. That's cool. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery right? Faux Dita did a pretty good job, she's awfully cute. Agreed?
