Cleopatra As Fashion Muse from the fall catwalks to Sex and the City 2

Beauty & Jewelry Trend Report: Miss Cleo the Modern “It” GirlWhy wait for fall?Everyone wants a jump on a fashion trend, especially when it’s something that you can glom onto, run with, and make personal… before it is even “in season,” the proposed season, that is.Look no further than some blunt bangs, heavily lined cat eyes, and very royal and sensual jewelry in a BC kind of way.Hold your cobra, Cleopatra is our favorite muse of the moment!There certainly was no shortage of models with a ‘Walk Like An Egyptian’ vibe on the fall catwalks, or even some not so subtle nuances to Elizabeth Taylor’s portrayal as the fabulously glamorous pharaoh in the 1963 movie, “Cleopatra.” “The Miss Cleo trend has a royal aura without being ostentatious -it is all about the accessories,” says Christina Mannatt, Cultural Editor at the trend forecaster Stylesight.com.

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.

How to wear anything

Discover your inner Carrie, if you must.Did you ever notice how some women can barely pull off wearing a pair of jeans and a T-shirt without looking like they are about to clean out the garage? While there are others who are the masters of the craziest, most way out combination that always seems to work on them?From the character Carrie in “Sex and the City” to fashion impresario Anna Piaggi, pictured here, the Italian fashion writer and style icon who is sort of the precursor to Lady Gaga’s style, no nutty combination is too much, yet people covet their personal style and sense of daringness.But would you REALLY wear what they wear, as they wear it? Not really, I bet.But I do bet that you may wonder how to wear anything with aplomb.
