Jessica Alba’s Saavy Street Style!

So I was browsing one of my fave sites, upscale hype, when I saw this post of Jessica Alba. My attention immediately went to her shoes. Not only are they a standout, but they reminded me of a pair of wedges that one of our fellow Idealist Dana had gotten from ALDO. Low & behold Jessica’s tribal wedges were also from  the ALDO collection as well. I know I’m always posting on my favorite celebs wearing my fantasy designers, but the cost to get the exact look is usually astronomical! So I LOVE when I see them in bargain brands such as H&M, TopShop,….& now ALDO because its attainable to the average person. The actress completed her street style look with Diane Von Furstenberg trousers, a metallic blazer, & Longchamp bag!
I LOVE THIS LOOK!

 The ALDO wedge dubbed “Sobeslava“, retails for $125.

FASHION WARS!: Rihanna vs. Selita Ebanks

Last nigh supermodel Selita Ebanks attended the Samsung Children for Hope Event wearing a velvet halter gown from Carlos Miele’s Fall 2011 collection. However, pop star Rihanna was the first to rock the dress on American Idol back in April. While both women looked beautiful, I’m feeling Rihanna’s overall look & better fit of the dress. You can see more of her curves in it. Besides, Selita’s new cropped do has to grow on me.

  • Rihanna! Its hard to follow up this trendsetter!
  • Selita of course! She’s a supermodel, she makes every look perfection!

What She Wore: "Kelly Rowland in DVF"

With a #1 single & now serving as a judge on the UK’s X Factor Kelly Rowland is definitely #winning! She was spotted today leaving the X Factor auditions wearing a Diane Von Furstenberg print maxi dress. Everyone knows I’m a HUGE fan of the designer so I immediately recognized who the dress was by right away. Anyway, the singer paired the maxi with a Fendi tote & tan wedges & looked gorgeous as usual! But with that face & model-esque bod would you expect anything less!

& speaking of Diane Von Furstenberg…..

Did anyone watch the Basketball Wives season 3 premiere on Monday? With all the craziness going on, it definitely did NOT disappoint! I sure missed those girls!  Anyways, in the episode there was a scene where Jennifer was having lunch with the new girl and all I kept thinking was “Jen’s shades are really cute“! Leave it to one of my favorite websites fashionbombdaily.com to spot the designer which was none other than Diane Von Furstenberg! CUTE RIGHT?

Kelly’s dress retails for $545 & Jen’s “Runway” sunglasses are $175! Both are available at Bloomingdale’s!

What She Wore: "Melissa’s Cute Summer Look "

Even though there are tons of pictures of Rihanna & her best friend Melissa together people usually tend to direct their attention to Rihanna. However, this time it was Melissa that caught my eye as I noticed she was wearing the YSL Venice gold wedges I spotted on net-a-porter’s facebook page. The back of the heel has a interesting peak at the back. To some the extra peak makes it look like the shoes are too big, but to me it looks artistic. I definitely couldn’t pull it off, but then again Rhi always credits Melissa for being “the cool girl” she always looked up to. Paired with dark denim & a super cute striped shirt, I’m digging Melissa’s street style!

The Venice wedge is still available for purchase & if you wear a 9 or larger you’re in luck! Originally priced at $1195, it’s actually on sale now for $597.50.
