Check out hotties Megan in Herve Leroux, Blake in Roberto Cavalli, and Rihanna in Alexander Wang looking sexy to the max in mesh flesh frocks. There's something about mesh inserts that evoke a daring, mysterious vibe and I like it. This detailing isn't for the faint-hearted; when donning such a bold embellishment, brace yourself for hard stares and the occasional catcall. You ready?
If you've seen the Sex and the City movie, you know that Cynthia Nixon's character, Miranda Hobbes, was leaps and bounds more stylish in the flick than she was in the show. Perhaps age made her fashion-wise or maybe Carrie's flair for style rubbed off on her. Either way, she left behind the pinstripe suits and busted out the chunky earrings, colorful frocks, and stilettos.
Fans will be thrilled to know that back by popular demand is the inexpensive Maggy London dress Miranda wore in one of the first scenes of the movie; she wore it with an Alexander McQueen bag, Gucci pumps and a vintage belt. Many of you expressed interest in the silky, mod dress and now it's yours.
Just because you have the word bridesmaid attached to your name for the next couple months doesn't mean you have to dress tacky at your friend's wedding. We all know bridesmaid dresses have a tainted reputation but it's clearly warranted. I mean, who wants to walk around in ill-colored taffeta all night?
If the bride is your close friend or sister, suggest that the wedding party wear nontraditional frocks. Short, bright, floral . . . they will all set the tone for her Spring nuptials. Once you get the the green light, select a dress that will hint — not scream — bridesmaid, and one that will have guests commending, "she'll definitely be able to wear that dress again."

Grecian splendor will never go out of style because beautiful things never expire. Just ask drape-happy Rami Kashou from Project Runway. Although he overdid it, you can't deny that draped and one-shoulder styles are the closest we'll ever get to being a goddess . . . at least in this lifetime!
Kate Beckinsale recently channeled her inner goddess at a red carpet event in an Alberta Ferretti embellished Grecian gown. Like her, and many other red-carpet stars, let's dress like the goddesses we are.
I revisited Givenchy's Spring '08 collection today and I'm glad I did because it sparked this post. My adoration for Riccardo Tisci's large graphic polka dots led me to do a search for wearable oversized polka-dot dresses. Alas, I discovered this Maggy London Print Charmeuse Halter Dress ($92, originally $138). What great grownup and fabulous colors! For a more unique take, I'd replace the tie belt with a dark brown leather belt.
One(derful) Shoulder dresses are great for ladies who have chiseled shoulders and want to show them off. If your problem areas are below the waist, opt for an asymmetrical frock to draw attention to your décolletage. I'd stay away from necklaces but would rock a gorgeous cocktail ring and retro open-toe pumps.
Sure, this day is all about you you you, but just think about how long your mom has been waiting to see you in your big, poufy, white (or sleek, silky ivory) dress. The truth is, your wedding is just as much mom's day as it is yours, so you have to make sure that mama looks equally smashing! She may already be a MILF, so she won't have any problems looking H-O-T; or she may be more demure, so she may need a bit of a nudge to wear a smashing gown. Here are some dress ideas to share with her for her - I mean - your big day!
