You know you made them at camp. Lots of them. And though I prefer picking them up in foreign lands as mementos, I can't help but collect more and more friendship bracelets. When I zeroed in on Amanda Seyfried's futurama Doo.Ri dress and black sparkly Pierre Hardy shoes, I was pleasantly surprised to see a couple stringy, colorful bracelets on her wrist — here's a closer peek. I love sparkle and statement on the red carpet, but the unexpected youthful twist is totally fun. Take your pick: old-school string, rhinestones, charms, ribbons, classic chains, and beads. Or, go back to camp, and DIY!
Is it just me or is it red hot in here? I'm not opposed to donning a LRD but I prefer to take the alternate route with red accessories. They're ultra sexy, ultra sassy, and not so in-your-face. I don't need to tell you why this Christian Louboutin Glittered Platform Pump ($775) is scorching hot. All I need to do now is tap my heels three times for all my fashion wishes to come true.
Psst. Here's a cool styling trick I use every Summer: wear bohemian baubles. Not only do they trick people into thinking that you've just returned from some exotic vacay, but these colorful, ethnic-inspired adornments are also my favorite way to spice up any ensemble. To achieve this look, I suggest choosing jewels with natural material such as beads or fabric fibers like this Turquoise Catherine Michiels Lotus Pendant Silk Tie ($110). Did you know the sculpted sterling silver lotus pendant is a symbol of peace and purity? Cool. Sign up for a chance to win it . . .

A scarf necklace: What a cool concept. I always welcome the fusion of two fashion categories, because the result is almost always uniquely interesting. This Cynthia Dugan Jewelry Silver & Leather Scarf Necklace ($195) fits the description. It's a scarf in that it ties in the front but it's also a necklace due to the material. I had to have the look, minus the price tag, so I set out on a hunt for something similar.

We're in for a fun week with the release of the highly anticipated vampire movie Twilight. Have you read the book yet?! I have, so I'm ready. The movie's heroine Kristen Stewart looks every bit Bella Swan: fragile, girl-next-door pretty, pale. Here she is promoting the film with Robert Pattinson in a party-perfect French Connection plaid dress, red patent pumps, and chain jewelry. These are the things vampire dreams are made of.

Pardon me, would you have any Grey Poupon? Modern mustard is the latest hot hue. Hear it from Michael Kors when he says, "I think mustard has an automatic warmth to it. They work like the solid that's not a solid. A good investment piece isn't always black pants or a white dress."
This yellowish green looks best on textured fabrics, like a sweater, and if the color doesn't suit you skin tone, opt for a striking belt or bag. How will you spread your mustard?
In a sea of dresses at the The House Bunny CosmoGIRL! special screening, Katharine stood out in her polished, yet easy, black and white pant ensemble. Her white silk Alice + Olivia top with floral appliqué sleeves is sweet but she tempers the look with black trousers. Black platform sandals elevate the wearer, and the sparkling accessories further feminize. There's not a bit of bunny in this pulled-together look.
The day after Fab got to meet LC and Whitney at LA Fashion Week, Lauren stepped out again — this time for a little retail therapy with BFF Lo at Madison LA. If I didn't know better, I would think it was Spring in LA, the way the weather has been here! Lauren must agree, breaking out a tank and flip-flops. To give her cute casual outfit a bit more Fall appeal, I threw in a blazer and some ballet flats to match her D&G bag!
The baby bump is growing but Nicole Richie always takes the time to look stylish for the media. While out with boyfriend Joel Madden, she looks very mature in her black cowl-neck dress and red round toe pumps. It's not a particularly unique ensemble, but can you blame a girl whose pregnancy is the news heard 'round the world? I give her an A for style effort. As for her mommy skills? That I can't grade just yet.
