Dresses we would like to see on the Red Carpet!

The 83rd Academy Awards will be airing in 4 days. We are not immune to the hype! We tune in to see not only which actors win the top awards but, we are fashion addicts too! We have our own top picks for what we would dress the stars in! 

Natalie Portman - pregnant and beautiful. She isn't shy about showing off her baby bump! She is so beautiful and glowing! A red hot mama to be, we pick style 6012

Nicole Kidman - super tall and always super elegant. She tends to stick with light colors so, fitting for a golden statue, our pick is style 6010

Michelle Williams - she tends to always wear pale colors so, this Nude with Black overlay we think would look gorgeous on her - style 3137

Annette Bening - we read she likes simple gowns with jeweled necklines and we think this neckline would fit the bill! Style 6101

WED: The magazine

We had the lucky honor of getting an email from Kelly, the creator and editor behind WED: The Magazine. It's a new virtual magazine (sure is convenient!). WED is everything Weddings. It's the Carbon-Neutral and Socially Connected magazine that marry's style with function!  WED brings an amazing new twist to the traditional wedding publication. For more info and to check out THE VERY FIRST issue

WED The Magazine

The first issue has an awesome article about Sylvia Weinstock. Oh yeah, THAT Sylvia! She is the most amazing cake decorator on the planet. The other cool thing about this magazine is that it's hooked into WEDTown....the town where brides come together to discuss weddings and/or things in the magazine. We really believed in this HUGE project Kelly was doing and we became an advertising sponsor! We hope that you will join us and become a reader!! We will see you on the town....
