Jessica Biel’s cover shoot immediately caught my eye when I opened the January 2013 copy of ELLE. Not only is she photographed wearing 9 different designers including Jean Paul Gaultier and Isabel Marant ,  but was photographed in different locations throughout  Paris. Jessica’s fashion spread, in which she is sporting the designer’s Spring 2013 collections, is like something out of a fashion fantasy. May the photographs speak for themselves!

 All About The Style, Beauty, Accessories

The 55th Annual Grammy Awards, which aired LIVE last night, featured a night filled with great music and even better style. However this year, for the first year ever, a dress code was established. Given the wild outfits that we have seen at The Grammy Awards in the past, I’m personally glad that one was put into place; sometimes too much is just too much. The dress code stated that one cannot bare sides or under-curvature of the breasts. Of course there will always be a rebellious few that didn’t abide by the dress code but most did, creating a very exciting night of gorgeous dresses and gowns and for one special woman, a gorgeous pant suit. Here are my picks for best dressed.
