Katie Holmes looked like she walked straight out of the 1950's at the Michael Kors S/S 2014 runway show during New York Fashion Week. Holmes was dressed head-to-toe in Michael Kors and looked as if she was about to leap through fields of daisies. I am on the fence about this look. I think she looks absolutely beautiful but for my taste its a bit too Stepford Wives.

I had to pick this picture for today's Fashion Photo of the Day because they always fashionable Sienna Miller is wearing white! It just proves my point from yesterday - there is white everywhere! I don't know what is with this post Labor Day white thing lately and this dress is not even a 'winter white.' Are fashion 'rules' just being thrown out the window? Or is it a bold choice to wear a summery dress in October?

How much do you love that Rosie Huntington-Whiteley collaborated with Marks & Spencer on a sleepwear collection? I know I want to look like her at all times, especially in my pj's! If that is what Rosie looks like when she goes to bed then it's more than good enough for me. But in all seriousness, she looked radiant at the photocall for the launch of her new collection.

The Martha Graham Dance Company performed an intimate performance this week as part of the Company's “Graham Deconstructed” Series and Performa 13. The evening, entitled “Surreal Graham,” consisted of two pieces that exemplify the aura of surrealism, which sought to resolve the previously contradictory conditions of dream and reality through uncensored, unfiltered, and unconscious expression. Graham is perhaps the ultimate surrealist choreographer in that her work was ridden with shocking, sexual, and even violent undertones, themes that were popular amongst surrealist artists such as Salvador Dalí and René Magritte.

The savvy fashionista can spot a Jovani gown anywhere; from party and prom gowns to wedding dresses, the fashion house has been a consistent staple in fun, flirty, and extravagant designs that make women feel gorgeous and ready for anything. In a similar vein, Jovani's couture designs and celebrity prom dresses have cropped up on red carpets around the globe. Here are four (technically five) appearances just from the past month alone of some of Jovani's favorite unique prom dresses and runway gowns.

Beautiful technicians and haunting visages, the women seemed to be involved in some sophisticated conversation of an old forgotten world, where the women were impossibly strong and passion was the necessity of life.

Clearly Milla Jovovich has not lost her touch. She knows how to work both a dress and the camera at every opportunity. I love this Armani dress she wore at the Cannes Film Festival. But it's not just the dress I love. It's her confidence and elegance and how she holds herself that really completes the look. But a great dress is always a good place to start.

y love for Diane Kruger knows no boundaries. She never fails to wow me at an event and never gets stuck in just one 'look.' She easily switches from cool and sophisticated, to chic and sleek, to feminine and classic. But the one thing that remains constant is that the former model does it all without a stylist. It's pretty incredible! She not only knows when to take a fashion risk but she knows what looks best on her and to trust her own instincts. These are skills one can definitely learn but I have never seen someone nail it so well and so consistently as Kruger.

The Kinky FadesMistress Carol is the stereotypical dominatrix, and if it's been a while since you were last touched by the feathery tip of delight, let me remind you that the classic controller is the queen of black leather and thigh-high spike heeled boots. The snap of her whips is birdsong to your ears. Remember? So here's Nicky Fridh as Mistress Carol with Harry, better known as Nick Richberg, on his knees, licking her shiny insteps.

At the elegant Soroya Theatre in Northridge, CA, Martha Graham's Dance Company, under Artistic Director Janet Eilber's seasoned guidance, performed a most incredible group of works.  Some were originally created approximately 80 years ago, by Martha Graham, a true icon in the Dance world.  The EVE Project, as this evening, March 2nd, 2019 was entitled, gave us a wide variety of themes within a theme, that being Women and their significance, their power, their passion and their strength.  It was polished to perfection, and each piece carried many meanings and concepts and was just so beautifully performed and articulated.

Jennifer Lopez had a major princess moment in Christian Dior this week. JLo was being honored with a star on the infamous Hollywood Walk of Fame and she dressed to the nines for the occasion. I love everything about her look from her hair to the bustle to her raised hemline. Just when you think you've seen it all from JLo she goes and surprises you with this super feminine and romantic look.

I am obsessed with this dress and I am now officially obsessed with Margot Robbie. Can you believe this dress is Oscar de la Renta? I am so used to his gorgeous, structured, mermaid silhouettes and big voluminous skirts. But this silhouette is so modern, cutting edge that I wouldn't have thought it was an Oscar de la Renta. I bow down to the man who can design something this unique as well as his unbelievably classic gowns.

Bouldin described the creation process with Herrera, which New Dialect and Oz Arts Nashville co-commissioned. A hometown favorite, Bouldin and her company clearly have a devoted audience and partner with Oz Arts Nashville.

We were right there when the lights went off, when the skirt went up and the lights went down. We were right there - all the way - until the camera panned out and effectively told us to mind our own business while Alicia got down to hers.

Emma Watson is at it again. This girl knows how to make a fashion statement, push the envelope while always staying in within the classic boundaries. I know - kind of a contradiction but totally makes sense to me. Watson always sticks with classic colors and/or silhouettes but is not shy about going for it with her makeup, styling or some design in the garment. Her red Dior dress over black pants combo at the 2014 SAG Awards is a perfect example: it was chic, simple yet a totally bold choice.

When the famous musical film “Mary Poppins” premiered in 1964, no one could have predicted the important role it would play in film history. Starring Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke, the film combined live action animation with songs written and composed by the Sherman Brothers. Mary Poppins, played by Julie Andrews in her feature film debut, also produced one of film's most memorable songs of all time. There isn't anyone who has seen the Disney classic that can't walk away to whistle or sing those famous lyrics - “Just a Spoonful of Sugar Helps the Medicine Go Down…”

Emma Stone has been nailing her fashion for the media tour of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, but I think this pale blush Prada dress takes the cake. Blush pink has been everywhere, especially in the bridal world (Jessica Biel, Anne Hathaway), and at the Oscars this year we also saw a lot of nudes and blush tones. I am so thrilled to see this trend continue. I will never forget something I heard Rachel Zoe said once on the Zoe Report about a woman showing how her true confidence in a blush toned dress and I really agree. The color is very feminine but strong in it's vulnerability.

Lake Bell has so much going on this seemingly simple ensemble. She took the basics - black, white and a splash of color - and mixed and matched texture and patterns to create a chic, fun and flirty outfit that is perfect for spring. She started off with a great white top and as my Mom always says, you can never have too many white tops. She paired it with a black and white, embroidered floral skirt from Chloe Resort 2014 collection. The skirt is very feminine but feels modern with the geometric flower shapes.
