Look of the Week: Amanda Seyfried

Amanda Seyfried made an appearance at the La Botega in NYC after the premiere of her film Letters to Juliet at the Tribeca Film Festival on April 25th. Seyfried's shorts and bejeweled blazer are both Viktor & Rolf. Her pumps are Roger Vivier. In all black, her outfit is anything but boring. She looks elegant and chic. We love it!

Look of the Week: Taylor Lautner

While the Culturistas do not like to pick sides, this team we are all in support of Team Taylor! Lautner stole hearts at the Orange Store in Paris last Thursday. Lautner has the classic look of James Dean with a hint of Grease Lighning. With a basic white tee, denim, and a worn in leather jacket, Taylor was dressed to impress.

Cheap and Chic Finds of the Week: The Sleeveless Cardigan

Our theme for the Cheap and Chic finds this week is the sleeveless cardigan.  Drapey oversized tops are still very on trend for Spring 2010 and it only makes sense to wear the sleeveless version as the temperature rises!  So wear these tops over a pair of skinny jeans, jeggings or leather leggings!

Umami Burger: LA Burger Scene

In the hunt for the best gourmet burger in Tinsel Town, Umami Burger is up there at the top.  With crafty and delicious creations such as the Truffle Burger (made with Truffle cheese and truffle oil) or it's namesake Umami Burger (pictured above with a Parmesan crisp) as well as veggie and turkey options- there is something for everyone to try.  Also try their hand cut fries and malt liquor tempura onion rings. Delish! And with several locations all over LA- it shouldn't be a problem finding one near you!

Know before you go: be prepared to wait- the restaurants are on the small side.
Order your burger medium or medium well if you don't want it coming out bloody!
