1/8/07: The Best of Both Worlds

"So soon as a fashion is universal, it is out of date." - Marie Von Ebner-Eschenbach
Teeny bopper Miley Cyrus is not only a singer, actress, and fictional popstar - she's a fashionista for the pre-teen crowd. Clad in apparel that pre-teens love (and moms allow), Miss Cyrus is a good fashion role model for younger girls. Back in the mid-90's, when pop sensations Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera ruled, their tiny baby tees and microminis weren't exactly the kind of clothes that would be appropriate for the young crowd that worshiped their music. Miley stars as the title role of Hannah Montana/Miley Stewart on the hit Disney Channel show, "Hannah Montana." On the show, she wears cutesy middle school garb: brightly colored sweats and knit shrugs with pink skirts twisted with messy rock n' roll hair or straightened chic hair. Though her clothes on the show might not appeal to the teenage or early twenties crowd, they are what young girls dream of wearing. But off the set, Miss Cyrus is rockin' and rollin' her 5'4 figure with two inch knee high leather boots and glamorous glitter from top to bottom. On the red carpet, Destiny Hope Cyrus (her birth-name) can be sophisticated and chic, rock n' roll stylish, or Tennessee cowgirl hip. There are plenty of fansites that are dedicated to Miss Miley, so google Miley Cyrus and you are sure to find lots of information about this rising starlet. Teenybopper magazines such as Teen, J-14, Popstar, M, and Tiger Beat report that Miley shops everywhere from H&M to Intuition. She has worn Primp thermals, puffy jackets, Louis Vuitton handbags, you name it. No doubt about it, Miley Cyrus has style - on set and off.

1/7/07: Runway Looks: A Young Girl's Commentary

"Fashion was made to become unfashionable." - Coco Chanel

Due to unknown circumstances, Blogger is not allowing me to post pictures, downloaded or from the web, onto my posts, so until that gets solved, I'm just reporting without the visual representation. I've noticed a trend in the spring 2007 collections: bright blue. Not just bright blue: Electric blue, bright royal blue. I was once at a small boutique, Red Stella, while vacationing in Gualala, California. That day I wore a bright royal blue sweater with big wood buttons that I had bought at H&M. The women who owned the store told me that the color of my sweater would be a huge hit in spring of 2006. Well, they were a year off. This spring is the season for blue :) stock up before it's all gone. - Lauren_the_It_Girl
