If I could pick one item to add to your wardrobe for the upcoming winter season, I would say a faux fur vest is a must! This stellar item can make layering up in the cold weather a bit more fun. Take inspiration from stylist Rachel Zoe, as she is caught wearing fur vests often along with Kim Kardashian and the Olsen twins! Styling Tips: Wear a solid colored long sleeve top under your vest, pair with wide leg jeans or skinnies, throw on an over-sized ring and you are ready to go. Oh, and don’t forget those pumps!! Note: This is a great gift for someone fashionable in your life for the upcoming holidays!
Kellan Lutz is not just the hunky vampire brother of “Twilight’s” Edward, he is an actor gone designer (and he actually knows his stuff!). He is partnering with Danny Guez, founder of Dylan George who also worked with William Rast and People’s Liberation denim. With a goal to capture the “feeling” of California town Venice, the 25 piece Abbot + Main collection is full of “breathable layers,”aka super soft t-shirts and hoodies that transition well from day to night. Ladies, good news! Women’s pieces are launching in the spring. Watch on for the exclusive inside scoop with Kellan.
Abbot + Main is available at Nordstrom stores or online at nordstrom.com.

One of the standout models this season at New York Fashion Week has been the all-American Karlie Kloss. Karlie’s dancer background (she is trained in Ballet) allows her to sashay down the runway with such grace and poise, you almost forget you are watching a fashion show.
This last week she was a favorite in runways shows including Marc by Marc Jacobs, Jason Wu, Rodarte, Ralph Lauren and Carolina Herrera. Her delicate features are versatile in that she looks just as good with natural make-up a la Marc by Marc Jacobs as they do with bold looks like she donned for Rodarte. She came on the modeling scene in 2007 at just 15 years old and clearly still has a long career ahead of her. These photos just brush the surface of her already mile-long portfolio.

Interning in the Gossip Girl wardrobe closet was the tipping point to my career path as it opened my eyes to a vast universe of fashion that was beyond my Dallas-ite exposure. My trek to Silvercup Studios every morning gave me just enough time to excitedly dream about what the day might hold as each moment in the costume department dove me into creativity that was beyond me, even when I was executing the most simplest of assignments.
What an honor it was to walk into a passion-filled, ridiculously talented, close-knit family-like environment, where each person taught me more than a task ever could. The best part: they were being themselves in their element. They all had different stories and different backgrounds but were bonded by a common thread: each person moved past fears, uncertainty, and sacrifice to pursue their innate skills, their creative capacities. This life-lesson went beyond assisting in cast fittings, labeling designer shipments, and all-day extravaganzas in the Serena-van-der-Jeep, venturing from designer showrooms to department stores to the off-sight set truck, but rather this internship brought me to a new level of reality. Glamour was all of the sudden redefined.
After all, a work environment reflects its leadership, and costume designer, Eric Daman, truly set the tone for the behind-the-scenes magic that has translated into one of America’s greatest measure of trends, Gossip Girl. His accomplishments are not limited to styling Blair Waldorf, as he has written a book on personal style, composed a Gossip-Girl themed window for Henri Bendel, and designed a line of party dresses at Charlotte Russe, where he maintains the creative director position. For more of the inside scoop, tune in to this exclusive interview, as I sit down with the man behind the clothes…
