Robert Verdi’s Hot Celebrity Holiday Gift Video

'Cause celebrities are naughty and nice… and they LOVE gifts! You know that around here at FocusOnStyle, Sharon has no patience for dry, route, and the same old style advice. Fashion should be fun and all fashion experts should certainly have a sense of humor… after all, who wants to be told to burn that sausage dress from someone as snappy as an undertaker?Sharon and Brad have been vlogging some hysterical tips about What to Wear to an Office Holiday Party, What To Wear & How to Plan a Holiday Party at Home, and What to Wear to A Holiday Party In The Country and the holidays are a time to share.So, here's a fun take on holiday gifts from Robert Verdi, the television personality, celebrity stylist, and all around stylish guy with who really could make it in stand-up if he wasn't so darn busy telling you how to put more glam in your life!Drum roll please…. it's Robert Verdi's Holiday 2010 Video Gift Guide.Oh, did we tell you that Robert has hysterical naughty and nice gift picks for Beyonce, Eva Longoria, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, Nick Lachey & Vanessa Minnillo, and Jessica Simpson & Eric Johnson? No, well, you have to watch:We asked Robert to share a few of his gift giving tips with the readers of FocusOnStyle and here is what he said…Gifts should always be personal, not generic and most importantly, the gift should reflect the gift receipient, not the gift giver. That's the single biggest mistake that people make, they give a gift that they themselves would like to receive and forget that it's not about them.One of my favorite gifts on my holiday list is the HP Envy 100e All-In-One printer. Everyone in your life needs the latest and greatest tech and this will make everyone's life easier because you can print from your smart phone. It's a great gift to give from a group if you're too cheap to buy it yourself… and, it's also a great gift to give a family, if you're too lazy to wrap more than one gift.Robert Verdi's holiday video gift picks:1. For the Style-Setter, a Baby Phat Foil Screen Sweater, $79, babyphat.com2. For the Stylish Superstar, The Koolaburra Victoria Boot, $465, Koolaburra.com>> SHOP: Stylish Sheepskin Boots 3.

I am a young 40 and it is a corporate Christmas Party. (Via Comcast email)A:Look how Claudia Schiffer dresses up for a cold nightIt can get tricky to look glamorous while not freezing your petunias off.
