Sex and the City 2 Top Fashion Trend is the Maxi Dress. Here’s how to wear it

How to wear a maxi dress and not look like you ran out of the house in your nightgownoriginalOk, “Sex and the City” fans, I’m not saying that you should show up at the movie theater this Friday dolled up as your favorite SATC character, but I know some of you will (again).Think of this as purely fashion tips to get the look right, and if it happens to be the hottest summer fashion trend to emerge out of SATC2, so be it.In an interview on E!, Sarah Jessica Parker said that the long, maxi dress, or Desert Chic as she called it, would be the HOT “Sex and the City 2″ fashion trend replacement for the ubiquitous gladiator sandals that are still loitering in some closets 2 years after the first SATC movie.It’s no coincidence that as Creative Director for the Halston Heritage label, the secondary archival collection from Halston, Sarah Jessica Parker is flaunting many of her designs in the movie thus making it a click-to-buy extravaganza and almost as heady as a night at Studio 54 where, no doubt, many of those floaty looks first grazed a dance floor.shop_productOne of the most featured maxi dresses from the movie is the Halston Heritage Iconic Pleated Long Dress in Orange, pictured left and above, on SJP for the film and on a look-a-like model and available at Singer 22. The flouncy dress has a decidedly disco feel to it, which may be a bit much for the day.>> READ: Sarah Jessica Parker + Sex and the City 2 = 80′s RewindlargeI’ve always been a fan of maxi dresses to beat the summer heat. Particularly more peasant or ethnic styles that are light and breezy in hot weather yet far more glam–yet still casual– than wearing a pair of shorts or a summer skirt.

Juliette Binoche rocks a drop crotch Givenchy jumpsuit and we love it

I’ll Have What She’s Having: A Riccardo Tisci for Givenchy harem jumpsuit. If there had to be one major investment trend piece for my wardrobe this season, I would be hard-pressed not to consider the drop-crotch, harem jumpsuit by Riccardo Tisci for Givenchy that Juliette Binoche absolutely rocked in Cannes this week.Drop crotch, harem pants are by far a hard look to pull off but she did so flawlessly. There’s always the fear of resembling Diaper Dan or one of those hippie tourists who snooze outside the museums in Europe in stretched out harem pants and dreadlocks.But when worn right, the look is amazing!original>> READ: How to wear a jumpsuit like Padma Lakshmi

Sienna Miller Rocks a Romper But Can You, Here’s How

Sienna Miller made the cover of the New York Post wearing a cute summer romper but pulling it off is not as easy as it looks.I have a sneaking feeling that with all the press Sienna Miller is getting today that she inadvertently put her style icon stamp of approval on rompers.Yes, rompers are on trend. Yes, Sienna is the poster girl for BoHo chic. And, yes I have seen more than a few women who passed go on looking like a fashion victim when wearing this super short and girly fashion trend.referenceWe found the Twenty8Twelve Dern Romper that Sienna is wearing at Shopbop and before you get all copycat crazed, I have a few style tips for you to think about.I LOVE the way the actress sets the baby girl look off balance with a pair of lace-up jazz flats, almost like the ones that Jude Law is wearing. She stays true to her BoHo style and has the long, lean, and super tone legs to pull off such a short style with menswear flats, but not everyone can.You may not want to hear this, but…

The Fashion Red Carpet- Celebrities Wearing Dresses That Didn’t Wear Them

“It is getting a little long into the season of schmaltzed up red carpet dresses.A few more big events to go before things peter down for summer and we are all getting rather tired here of looking at stacks of celebrity photos of stars wearing overdone dresses.That’s not to say that you can’t look unique but just not like you are wrapped up in an overdone bolt of couture fabric. So instead of ragging on the overdone rags, we will simply show you what we like and what will surely NOT produce any “what was she thinking” retrospective moments.There’s that wonderful adage about not wearing clothes that wear you and that’s what we want to concentrate on as we review the prettiest, we think, looks from last night’s red carpet at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala in New York.Sharon’s personal favorite for the night is Gwen Stefani wearing a dress of her own design that is edgy yet quite stunning and simple, pictured left.Take a look at some of our favorite elegant red carpet fashion looks from last night that will withstand the taste of time and tell us what you think…”

Zoe Saldana ‘s Lanvin dress in a burst of color is our newest love

“Zoe Saldana ‘s Lanvin dress in a burst of color is our newest love. We’ve really been taking note of Zoe Saldana’s style since she went the way of true fashion rather than predicable red carpet route with her Givenchy Haute Couture lilac gown at this year’s Oscars.Alber Elbaz has always been a name on our short list of lifetime personal favorites for his feminine and sophisticated take on clothing that women actually want to wear because of the flattering grace of his designs. As the Creative Director of Lanvin, we see nothing but possibilities that we would love to have fill our closets.largeThere’s been a bit of obsessing around here since we first saw the photos of Zoe Saldana in the tomato red draped dress, that she cinched with a chain belt at the premiere of “Death at a Funeral.” SHOP ANIMAL PRINTS”
