Don't mind the missing face on this model, focus on the frock. This Urban Outfitters Silence & Noise Lace Fringe Tank Dress ($60, originally $98) reminds me of the Rodarte dress Natalie Portman wore to the Venice Film Festival. I heart the swaying fringes and dropped waistline.

Whether you love her, hate her, or aren't sure yet, it's soon to be judgment day for celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe when her docudrama premieres Tuesday, Sept. 9. We're kind of loving her and all her Zoe-isms ("bananas") and fashion advice she's given us via our countdown to The Rachel Zoe Project. One thing's for certain: this woman lives a fabulous life. Here's more of it . . .
How many pairs of shoes does Zoe have?
"I haven’t done a count in awhile, but I probably have a bit too much of everything. And that’s not in a sort of extravagant sense as much as it’s from a standpoint of, my rationale is being a collector of things. My vintage collection, and things like that, those are things I can’t ever part with and therefore, it just keeps growing. Instead of getting rid of things and then replacing them, I just keep adding. I am a shopper. I am a collector and I am a shopper, and I can’t really make an excuse for it other than that it’s my art and it’s what I do. And it’s something that in the back of my mind I hope someday my daughter will benefit from, you know what I mean?"

Knock on wood. But this time, try it with your feet instead of your knuckles. Sound awkward? But it looks so good. Wooden heels meld together sophistication and sass.
A wooden heel gives off a nonchalant attitude, while the sleek design puts your manner in check. Thanks to the elevated platform and absorbent heels, these platforms are fairly comfortable and easy to walk in.
There are stars and then there are shining stars. At the 2008 Venice Film Festival, a slew of actresses and models flew overseas to attend, but only a handful shined. There were plenty of arenas to flaunt their fashions — movie premieres, photocalls, parties — and the likes of Charlize Theron and Natalie Portman went all out. The screening of Valentino: The Last Emperor especially brought out a stylish crop. Enter the Venician red carpet.
As a little girl, I wanted to be a ballerina. I didn't care for standing on my toes, but I loved the pretty little outfits. Now, I can live out my childhood dreams in these Betsey Johnson Ballet Lace Up Socks ($12). These lacy socks will add a whimsical touch to any outfit, and at that price, I'm willing to try it out. What say you?
Get the Look: Lauren Conrad's Dog Walking Layering Look Lauren Conrad is not one to leave her dog, or her style, at home when she's working out. I love her dog walking gear and I'm always on the market for a good long tank to layer while working out, so FabSugar did a little investigating for me to find LC's Daftbird Daft-Jersey Body tank.
Cosmic flash thinks her dress is too short, but I beg to differ. If Gwyneth Paltrow can do it, so can she! Her green shift dress is crisp as celery. I like how the silver hardware and shiny flats contrast her fresh frock.
Here's what she has on:
- Dress: Amanda Uprichard
- Wrap: Alternative Apparel
- Cuff: Kenneth Cole
- Shoes: J. Crew
Congrats to cosmic flash!
Everyone else, submit your looks and I might feature you on FabSugar!.

As you read this I am Jet Blueing across the country. I will be doing a mix of restless organization, napping, and guilty television watching. Don't you love long flights sometimes? I do, especially during hectic times when you are forced to sit still and chill out. But before I embark on another fashion-filled week, stressed to the max, inspired to the fullest, my days working at Martha Stewart help me prepare. If you have yet to see the infamous outfit plan (print your own), which I do before every Fashion Week, here's the latest and Fabest.
The approach this time is a mix of minimalism and California laid-back style. Colors are black, white, and purple, and jewelry is playing a bigger part than ever before. Total amount of shoes: Four pairs! Not bad, considering previous seasons. Bags: Also four — don't ask me why. But these always need to be big enough to carry my reporter essentials; brands represented on Fab's shoulder will be Foley + Corinna, vintage Bottega Veneta, Hogan, and Prada. Does anyone else spot an Italian theme here? Jackets, oh how I love them so, will be kept to a minimum given the warm forecast (yes!), and my Marc by Marc umbrella is packed! Get ready girls, let the fashion games begin.
