Kim Kardashian's been on our radar for her suddenly sophisticated fashion choices. For the Diamond Empowerment Fund event in South Africa, the beauty wore an interesting one-shoulder corset dress (perhaps a custom piece from Ports 1971?) and matching gladiator platform sandals. The hue is perfection against her olive complexion, but I'm not too sure about the severely studded belt. It definitely gives her a tough-girl aura, but the contrast is too stark for my taste. Another success for Kim?

Fast & Furious isn't exactly my kind of flick, but I must admit, it's been nice witnessing all the looks actress Jordana Brewster has been rocking at the premieres. From Madrid to London, France to Germany and Hollywood, Jordana has spiced it up each time. All her dresses are lovely, but which do you think is most Fab?
Speaking of Ports 1961--who showed a Fall 2009 collection in the tents last night--they've also opened up a brand new store in the Meatpacking District located on the ever-popular Gansevoort Street. To showcase the brand's colorful worldly aesthetic the space is outfitted with handmade carpets, warm walnut flooring, and floor-to-ceiling glass walls. The second floor of the building will play host to art openings and other special events while the third floor will serve as Cibani's design studio.
Confession: I'm not the sharpest when it comes to finance. Don't get me wrong, I know the basics, thanks to SavvySugar, but I want to learn more about investing my hard-earned money. To help point me in the right direction, a friend suggested I attend a personal finance seminar. As expected, I was amongst suits, ties, and chinos, but thanks to you, I found a sharp ensemble that was perfect number-crunching fun.
I started you off with this Yves Saint Laurent Crackled Patent Rive Gauche Tote ($1,596); it's chic without going overboard. Let's see what you came up with!

The worldwide promotion of Seven Pounds has kept Rosario Dawson happily busy in a bevy of beautiful dresses. In LA, the actress wore a slick Bottega Veneta nude number (which was my Fab favorite); in Germany, she shined in a silk chiffon asymmetrical gown by Azzaro; in Rome, Rosario wore a sassy Bottega Veneta LBD and a navy Ports 1961 frock; and in Paris, Dawson opted for a light lavender strapless Sonia Rykiel number with purple Christian Louboutin pumps. Tell me, which Rosario Dawson look do you prefer?

As much as we tire of saying it, times are hard what with major investment banks going bankrupt and all, so its really not a surprise that so many designers are feeling a little blue about the future. Either that or all the textile mills had a surplus of the stuff and on down the chain of production it went. Either way deep blue from sky to sea were seen on the runways of Badgley Mischka, Reem Acra, Marc Jacobs, Doo.Ri, Rodarte, Iodice, Ports 1961, Carlos Campos, Y3, Alexander Wang, Catherine Holstein, Vanexiana, Alice McCall, and Michael Angel
Everything from skirts and pants to day dresses and evening gowns shined lke the top of the Chrysler Building at New York Fashion Week.
