Need-To-Know Fashion Updates: Boots, Britney and Anna Wintour

While browsing NY Mag's fabulous fashion blog, "The Cut," and my very own SaleMail account I came across quite a few fashion updates that fall into the "need-to-know" category. The updates are provided below, enjoy my darlings!

-60 Minutes and CNN will soon take a daring step into the fashion industry when the two channels profile the world's most prominent fashion figures - Anna Wintour and Carine Roitfeld.

-Thigh-high boots and full-leg boots double as pants in Prada's 2009 fall collection. For all of us that enjoy wearing pants, but want to embrace the trend, i suggest buying a middle-of-the-line pair of thigh-high boots and pairing with skin-tight skinny jeans.

-As you may know, our good friend Britney Spears is hitting the road for an international circus tour very soon. Canadian brothers Dsquared2 will be designing her Ringling Bros. - esque frocks. Rock on Brit.

-BCBG Max Azaria taffeta skirt on sale at for over $100 off the original price. This is a great choice for spring! :)

StyleJunkie Feature - Fresh Fashion Local

Name: Nadira Kharmai,
Age: 20
- Grand Valley State University lacrosse team
- Local model and fashion show producer
- Former host of GVSU's premier fashion talk-show, "Hot Valley"

Fashion inspiration
Simple, Gabrielle Chanel. Her mantra of pure simplicity is my fashion inspiration The collection, now conducted by Karl Lagerfeld inspires me to fuse preppy looks with classic pieces to create new age trends.

To-die-for Couture Designer
JASON WU! I'd KILL for one of his flashy little cocktail dresses. Wu’s spring collection at NYF is incredible. He has an eye for fresh elegance with a twist of romantic style. He also rocks sequins in all the right ways.

Best bang for your buck designer
Paper Denim and Cloth. The collection is known for soft and durable clothing that lasts. Very artsy and not many people wear their stuff around these parts.

Forever fashion staple
Low-rise dark jeans are slimming on any body type and can be doctored up with embroidery and sequins. If you’re aiming for a more casual look pair the jeans with super high heels and a sexy or billowy top.

"Aww hell no" fashion don't
CROCS, unless you're a gardener or working in a hospital, please refrain from wearing Crocs. Also – never wear five different trends at once!

The future of fashion
I'm hoping designers such as Jason Wu, Betsy Johnson, and Christian Audigier can stir up something unique and reasonably priced for all of us without millions of dollars. I’d also like to see Betsy Johnson and Christian Audigier’s west coast style blend with the mainstream style that controls the Midwest.

Spring '09 fashion predictions
More floral patterns along with polka dots. I have a feeling polka dots are going to be huge and hopefully cancel out the plaid phase still looming over us.

The other Jenny from the block...

Let's face it friends, no man is ever going to be "just not that in" to Jennifer Aniston. Take a look at the link below (courtesy of Style Critics) showcasing Aniston's snazzy yet simple outfit for Leno. The best thing about this look? People not living in la-la land (a.k.a. Hollywood) can easily recreate the sexy ensemble! :) Work it!
