Heather Campbell-Green is the founder of Celebrity Style Guide, a site dedicated to delivering all the information you need to know about what your favorite star is wearing — from the red carpet to the silver screen. For more than eight years she's been identifying celebrity clothing, but her personal style is just as noteworthy. Equal parts edgy and girl next door, Heather's closet incorporates both classic pieces and new trends that are anything but boring.
Channel your inner Grecian goddess in chic gladiator sandals this season. Pair them with diaphanous sundresses, maxi skirts, and cutouts for an ethereal bohemian vibe, or contrast a little black dress with a metallic pair for a twist on downtown cool. We're currently coveting Isabel Marant's edgy grommet embellishments, J.Crew's high-shine finishes, and Giuseppe Zanotti's romantic laser-cut details. Step into the trend with all of our top picks now.
The star of In Her Shoes is literally giving you a chance to walk in them. With today's news that Cameron Diaz has been named artistic director of Pour La Victoire, fans of the leggy star can emulate her footwear style come Spring ("Cameron's Picks" for Fall and Holiday will roll out earlier, as well as a Jessica Hart campaign at which she was on set).
More than being just a spokesperson for the label, Cameron described the partnership to WWD: "I don't do endorsements really. This is completely different." Cameron added, "Being influential in a brand and in its [advertising] campaigns interests me. I love fashion. It's a large part of my life. What I wear is looked at. It influences what other people wear because that's just the world we live in."
Born from a visit last year to the company showroom, the actress now owns a stake in PLV Studio Inc. — which owns Kelsi Dagger and licenses bags for French Connection, though she'll have creative control over Pour La Victoire exclusively while working closely with PLV Studio's creative director, David Giordano. In the role, she'll be involved in the label's shoe and handbag collections, as well as their merchandising, marketing, and advertising. With a heavy load to undertake, Cameron admitted, "There's a lot I have to learn about the business. I'm interested in learning how collections are created. The word 'fun,' I want to say that it's going to be fun, but it's deeper than that."
For an idea of what we can look forward to when the actress's first collection hits stores, Cameron promised, "We want the brand to be accessible for that working girl . . . I work hard for my money. I want it [the collection] to be sensible, whether you have a lot of money or you are scraping together pennies." And on that note, we're saving up!
We only have a few short weeks until March, which means we're nearing transitional dressing season. With that in mind, we're heading to Nordstrom's shoe clearance for a footwear refresh. Right now, a range of cool booties, loafers, and sandals are marked up to a whopping 50 percent off. Just click on to see and shop our top picks from the sale right now!
Elizabeth Olsen fought the NYC chill in a stylish layered look complete with chic accessories — blue suede Pour La Victoire oxfords ($250), a rust BCBGMAXAZRIA fedora ($24, originally $58), and a classic black leather tote. The actress started with a knit oatmeal sweater and black leather pants, then layered a blue peacoat and red-piped scarf for extra warmth. Shop Elizabeth's exact shoes and hat to work with slick leather pants — or these faux leather Romeo & Juliet Couture leggings ($49, originally $130) —and a cozy oatmeal sweater and navy peacoat for a street-chic style that's both fashionable and functional.

Gossip Girl is currently on hiatus, but we are here to feed your craving for the latest stunning looks from one of our favorite Upper East Siders played by Blake Lively. For her latest Serena ensemble, Blake showcased the versatility of her yellow python Pour La Victoire pumps ($250) by working them with two different looks. During the day she sported her bold pumps with an embellished tank and floral Haute Hippie miniskirt, then at night she paired them with a strapless black Lorick dress and chain-strap Oscar de la Renta bag. Get a closer look at this trendsetter's onscreen style, then shop her looks — including her exact pumps — for yourself.
The love scenes on Gossip Girl may be scorching, but shooting in chilly NYC requires the cast to don lots of layers. Newcomer Ella Rae Peck's long red coat and charcoal-gray scarf sealed in much-needed warmth, while her gray suede Pour La Victoire wedges took her ensemble to new heights. We added a striped neon sweater and leather hobo — similar to the one she's carrying — to finish off her cozy screen style. This look is perfect for a lunch date with friends, or switch it up with a pair of over-the-knee boots for a night out.
