Celebrity Redo: Eva Longoria

April 19, 2011 by  
Filed under Celebrity Redo

Eva Longoria’s outfit is just plain old blah!  The pattern on the dress overwhelms her petite frame and the blue tote only adds to the confusion.  For the redo, simplicity was the key: I kept Eva in blue and used the bag and necklace to kick it up a notch.  What do you think of Eva’s look?

Celebrity Redo: Keira Knightley

April 7, 2011 by  
Filed under Celebrity Redo

I get the casual chic look Keira Knightley was after, but I thought it needed a little tweaking.  The skirt’s length and cut is unflattering, so I swapped it out with a sexy pencil skirt.  The tights are unnecessary (it makes the outfit look bulky) and needed to go.  Likewise, the bag creates a frumpy look, so I threw in a more structured bag.  The skirt I used gives the outfit a more polished look and can be worn to work for casual day or paired with heels for fun after work. What do you think of Keira’s look?

Celebrity Redo: Lea Michele

Lea Michele is adorable, but her outfit is plain and frumpy. For the redo, I gleefully swapped out the slouchy sweater for a long cocoon cardigan and paired it with flared trousers and heels (to create a long, lean look). What do you think?

Celebrity Redo: Megan Fox

I know Megan Fox can look good wearing a paper bag but sometimes her frumpiness just bores me.  So, I decided to redo her outfit but kept within her simple look.  The ginger shawl kicks it up a notch with a much needed pop of color, and the grey wedges give the outfit a sexy edge. What do you think of Megan’s outfit or style in general?

Joy Bryant shines in this funky, urban cowgirl look, but I decided to simplify the outfit for the everyday gal (I swapped out the cowboy boots for some lace ups, and opted for a braided belt).  What do you think of Joy’s look?

Celebrity Redo: AnnaLynne McCord

October 8, 2010 by  
Filed under Celebrity Redo

AnnaLynne McCord looks cute but should have paid heed to Coco Chanel’s sage advice,  “When accessorizing, always take off the last thing you put on.”  In this case it’s double trouble.  Her outfit would have been fine without the scarf and necklace because the tie neck blouse was enough.  She would of been better served by adding some earrings or bangles.  So I basically redid the outfit without the unnecessary accessories and added some skinny jeans (below) for those of you who want to downplay the outfit a bit.  Hope you like it!

Celebrity Redo: Kim Kardashian

It’s not that I don’t like Kim’s outfit but I do think the pieces are bit off. The vest is a bit short and the belt on the shirt just doesn’t flatter her fabulous curvy body. So, I replaced the vest with one that falls at the hips and ties at the waist to help elongate the torso and show off her tiny waist. What do you think of Kim’s outfit?

Celebrity Redo: Jessica Alba

I usually love Jessica’s outfits, but this one just doesn’t do anything for  her.  The gray skirt paired with that purplish cardigan just makes her look washed out (particularly against her blonde hair, which is a tad too light in my opinion).  So, I swapped out the gray skirt for a vintage-looking tapestry pocket skirt and picked a cardigan with a darker shade.  What do you think of Jessica’s outfit (or hair for that matter)?

Celebrity Redo: Charlize Theron

Charlize was clearly trying to go for the laid-back red carpet look,but it just didn’t work (a bit sloppy and definitely unflattering). For the redo, I kept her in black but used a strapless sexy cocktail dress with a pair of funky cuffed platforms for some edge.  What do you think Of Chalize’s outfit?

Celebrity Redo: Natalie Portman

I love Natalie Portman’s style and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with any of the pieces.  But the ensemble as a whole makes her look frumpy.  I put together an outfit that stays true to her look but incorporates pieces that add some spunk and sex appeal.  Hope you like it!  What do you think of Natalie’s look?
