    It’s cold, it’s dreary, and some afternoons you just don’t want to go outside and deal with the February slush. Instead, curl up on the couch with a mug of tea and a good book until spring decides to arrive. If you’ve run out good books, here’s a few suggestions from our reading list to yours! What are you in the mood for today? A thrilling fantasy novel? A thoughtful look back in history? A silly intellectual romp? Or a thought-provoking psychological story? And of course, one good book deserves another. What’s the last great book you have read? Go ahead and share in the comments!

    One of the most wearable trends for spring is affectionately known as the pajama trend. Yes, penguin-pajama-pants girl in my 8 am Design 101 class—your pajama “look” has apparently caught the attention of designers, but don’t start celebrating yet. This trend isn’t about sweatpants, cartoon character pajamas, or hoodies. The style is silky, decadent lounge wear meant for wearing during languid summer mornings. Chiffon gowns worn with soft blazers, silky pajama pants with a sheer white tee and heels. Think comfortable, relaxed glamour as seen at Thakoon, Vena Cava, Reed Krakoff, and Karen Walker. So next Monday I will be showing up to Design in my silk men’s pajama shirt, chiffon skirt, and ballet slippers. We can even have a pajama party together in class, you and I. But to be frank darling, those penguin pajama pants just aren’t going to cut it. To join my little pajama party, check out my picks:

    Who: Halle Berry
    What: The 13th Annual Costume Designers Guild Awards at the Beverly Hilton Hotel
    Wear: Elie Saab Haute Couture gown

    Forty-four-year-old Halle Berry put girls half her age to shame last night in a ravishingly red Elie Saab gown from the spring 2011 couture collection (see it on the runway). With a plunging neckline, sheer skirt, and a brilliant look-at-me hue, Berry shows that if you’ve still got it, flaunt it! We love how she highlights her collarbone with the daring open neckline and shows off her gorgeous legs with sheer layers of lace that keep the look seductive but still classy.

    Reflecting upon the celebrated stylish women of past generations, one is stuck with iconic images of Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn, and Jackie O. Today we can add to that list of style heavy-weights Harajuku Barbie, Roman Zolanski, Nicki Theresa, and Rosa. Yes, we are referring to the woman of many wigs, Ms. Nicki Minaj. It is hard to believe that just two short years ago, we lived in a world horribly void of all things Nicki. Since bursting onto scene with three mixtapes and her platinum record, Pink Friday, released in 2010, this perfectly calibrated and multifaceted performer has become a pioneer for ground breaking style in the realm of hip hop. But beneath all the shiny packaging of this Trinidadian self-made cultural artifact and hip-hop legend, one will find a talented and passionate artist. This maverick’s wild ensembles continuously satiate her (many) fans. Even if she did not walk away with a Grammy this year, she certainly snagged our attention when she prowled the red carpet in an explosion of a leopard outfit by Givenchy. With one platinum album, many wigs, and several alter egos, you do not have to have to look far to watch this queen conquer.

    Disney star Vanessa Hudgens wore this sexy silver mini dress to a party at the Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas, while wrestler Stacy Keibler wore it a Maxim Magazine party. These girls couldn't be more opposite in looks, style and personality! Who do you think wore this "Pleasure doing business" dress best?

    We have been saying for years Jennifer Aniston needs a change with her hair, its been looking exactly the same for way too long. Finally she has done it! Last night she arrived on the red carpet to promote her latest film "Just go with it" in Spain and wow, half her was gone! She is much blonder too! What do you think of this chopped, long bob for Jen? We are going to be honest. She looks much older, but we still like that she took a risk!

    Who: Kate Bosworth
    What: Calvin Klein Collection fall 2011 show
    Wear: A frock from Calvin Klein Collection spring 2011 and boots from Cairo Rings

    Kate Bosworth stepped out to the NYFW tents the other day to take in the Calvin Klein fall 2011 show and make an impression of her own. The fresh-faced thespian was heralding in some much-needed spring spirit, wearing a bright red-orange shift by the beloved American designer (see it on the runway) and pointy black Cairo Rings booties. But Kate’s a woman of many allegiances these days; she recently modeled Theyskens’ Theory—the current toast of town—and launched her own jewelry line, JewelMint, with stylist Cher Coulter. She certainly knows how to pick them!

    While some show-goers are getting their Balmain in a twist over the return of luxury, others are praising the resurgence of closet staples. Many of the shows who garnered the most attention this New York Fashion Week were all about velvet soft T-shirts and tailored pants. This time around, basic doesn’t necessarily mean dull. Theyskens’  Theory proved the power of layering, mixing fabrics, and slight variations in shades of gray and black to give sleek trenches and chunky sweaters something special. Olivier Theyskens also elevated shorts to a whole new height, cuffing them and pairing them with sexy tights and sky-high wedges.
