Most of the outfit is from Heritage--a great store by the awesome people of forever 21!
Have New Years eve plans but no outfit?? Check out this collage I made on Polvore.com for some inspiration! The ensemble on the left is ALL forever 21! It comes to about 60 dollars total! The one on the right is a combo of high end designers (aka McQueen, Louboutin, Chanel...) to a tune of 2,000+ dollars. But see how you can achieve the look WITHOUT breaking the bank! Enjoy and have a great NYE!

The rink is in Pershing Square in the heart of downtown L.A. It is open now until Jan 19th! It costs $6 plus $2 for skate rentals -- a very romantic and cheap date option! Go here for more information: http://www.laparks.com/pershingsquare/doi.html
Designer Thakoon Panichgul of "Thakoon" has created a line for Target that is hitting stores Dec 28th! Thakoon describes his line as having a "bold confidence and being adventurous." He says there are NO RULES when mixing prints together as long as you are confident!! LOVE THAT
Check out a video at Target's website here and see a sneak peek of the collection. The line looks super cute in my opinion! His use of prints is whimsical and to quote him "adventurous." And I love the mix and match ability here. The pieces are not even close to being as detailed as his high end line. But they have the same layering ability and are equipped with similarly fun prints.
All from Thakoon's Spring 2009 line
Luckily I live in LA so I should be able to start wearing these clothes by the time they hit stores :) woooo. Otherwise- BUY ASAP (because you know they will all be gone soon) and store till it's actually spring!

Emma Watson is wearing one of, fellow Brit designer, William Tempests' Spring 2009 dresses to the premiere of her new film "The Tale of Despereaux." I don't have much interest in seeing this Universal cartoon film---but Emma did show up to the red carpet looking fab! AND NOT IN BLACK!!! wooooo!
The always fashionable actress is your Culturista fashion inspiration of the day! Enjoy :) Check out more from William Tempest here!

Not really sure what to think of this outfit on Lily Allen. If she was going to a runway show or some kind of party I would say: way to take a risk and look fashion forward. But now that I know she was on her way to a business meeting....not so much.
BUT since she has been seen in QUITE some interesting get-ups these days (SEE BELOW)- I guess we are seeing an upward trend! And hopefully a new album soon! For those of you that aren't familiar with the musical talents of Miss Allen- check out her MySpace page here
Lily's fashion blunders:
**A Culturista Recommendation**
The movie is slow paced but the acting gives it an intensely realistic feel. I felt like I was watching someone's real life unfolding. The director, Jonathan Demme, used hand held cameras which really lent itself to the naturalistic tone of this movie. Also, Anne Hathaway is up for a golden globe for best actress for this film. A Culturista recommendation!

This phenomenal mountain of stones is no ordinary ring. It is both aesthetically pleasing and utilitarian. I was first introduced to it by my dear friend who is Marc Jacob's #1 fan (after me of course.) The ring is oversized and heavy and has warranted several compliments from strangers. Due to its size it can also duel as a weapon. Move over pepper spray and sound alarms, step in Marc by Marc Jacobs. When taking the subway home late at night I now feel protected. The best part about this ring is that it is "relatively" inexpensive. $36 for a rock and weapon seems like a good deal to me, however, you will need to get used to typing with it because it weighs the hand down. You can find it the Marc by Marc Jacobs specialty store in the West Village or on Melrose and Orlando.

Looks like everyone is wearing black these days! Both Jen, Owen, Brad AND Angelina have worn black to their December premieres, "Marley and Me" and "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button", respectively.
Though I think Jennifer Aniston's dress is a much more festive choice. I like that she went with this Valentino mini dress. The satin/lace combo looks so chic and much more in the holiday spirit. Her shoes also work so well with this outfit. I am still loving satin fabrics for shoes right now (like these or these that Carrie wore in SATC)- and the little flower on top is so perfect!

Why did JLo show up to the premiere of Benjamin Button looking better than the stars of the movie?? I really don't know what Cate was thinking here. She usually has such impeccable style! I'm guessing she was going for the Christmas tree ornament look?? Well kudos to her for evoking some holiday spirit...i guess.
Now they both look nice and coordinated...and you cant really go wrong with a traditional black tux...but why the black dress?? A little too boring and safe for me. It's the holidays people!!! Why not some red or silver or even ivory? Atleast Cate went with a little sparkle.
I'm not sure why Jennifer Lopez was AT the Benjamin Button Premiere but I'm sure glad she was! This is the best I've seen her look in quite awhile and I LOVE this Roberto Cavalli gown. So enjoy the fashion inspiration of the day :)
