Zoe in Vanity Fair

I was so happy when I came across this photo shoot and web exclusive that actress Zoe Saldana recently did for Vanity Fair. Ever since Center Stage (BEST MOVIE EVER!!!) she has been on my Hollywood radar. Don't you just love her?

These photos are FABULOUS! If she ever gets sick of acting she really could go into modeling.

3 Looks

One item that I absolutely love for this fall is a leather (or pleather) skirt. The motorcycle/rock & roll look has never been more in style. I found this fabulous Faux Leather Skirt at Forever 21. At only $22.80 it is an amazing deal...as I'm sure it will be worn over and over again all season long. Here I have incorporated this skirt into three great looks: one for work, one for a casual weekend, and one for a night out on the town. I just can't get enough of it! You can really wear it ANYWHERE!!!



Tell us where you would wear this skirt to. Is there a particular look that is shown above that you love? Or would you style it differently?

Lookin' Fab

Designer Vera Wang showed up at the NYC premiere of The September Issue at the Museum of Modern Art looking radiant. She wore a design that she created...and I have to say I LOVE IT!

On a side note, did you all realize that Vera is 60 years old? She looks fabulous!

Look of the Day

Free Graphic Tee @ Old Navy

If you have some time on Saturday I suggest that you stop on by Old Navy. They are having a fantastic sale. All of their adult jeans are marked down to a very affordable $19. And when you buy a pair on Saturday you'll also receive a free graphic tee! So make sure you get to your local Old Navy early because the free tees are while supplies last.

Claire in BlackBook

Claire Danes recently did a photo spread for September's issue of BlackBook. Can I just say that when I first saw these pictures I had no idea who that was! I guess every time I hear the name Claire Danes I instantly think of red hair and flannel shirts. Angela Chase she is no longer.




To see more of from Claire's photo shoot click here. What do you think of the shoot???


*A quick note...I just realized that this is my 1000th post on Snapshot Fashion! Here's to many more! :)

Wish List- Fall

Fall is just around the corner, and I can't wait. I know that I was just complaining a few weeks ago that the summer in NYC has been rather cool and rainy...and ever since then it's been so hot and humid (90+ degrees in the city is NEVER fun). So bring on the fall weather, please!!!

I have put together a wish list containing my twenty fall must haves. If only I had the closet space, and money to splurge. Let me know what you think of my list.

Also, I'd love to know what items are on your fall wish list. Please feel free to share!

Trend Block

One of my favorite trends for the fall has to be zippers. I've spotted them everywhere...from bags, to shoes, to dresses...they are all over the place! A simple exposed zipper makes any outfit a little more edgy.



Would you try this trend? If so, how would you wear it?

Pick of the Day

Recently added to Chick Downtown's website is this fabulous Grey Lola Dress from BB Dakota. Doesn't it remind you of the dresses that Victoria Beckham has been wearing recently? I love this look!

One thing that I think is so great about these sheath dresses is that you can add accessories and really dress it up if you so desire.

What do you think of this style dress? What would you pair it with?

Love Campaign at KRISTINIT

One thing I really enjoy about writing for this blog is getting email from young designers. I recently heard from Kristina Lenss of Kristinit. Her collection is quite beautiful, and I was really impressed. I felt that many of my readers would be very interested in checking out her beautiful designs. She is really making quite a buzz in the fashion industry. Kristinit was named Lucky Magazine's "One to Watch" designer and has also been featured in Teen Vogue, OK Magazine, Style.com, Nylon, Agenda Magazine, and Apparel News. Celebrity clients include Eva Mendes, Scarlett Johansson, Zoe Deshanel, Bobbie Thomas, Finola Hughes, and Julia Anderson.

KRISTINIT has just introduced their LOVE campaign for this fall. Its mission: a holistic approach to high fashion, one that links social responsibility, sustainable fabrics and great design.

"The LOVE Campaign is inspired by an integrated approach to designing and manufacturing a high fashion collection" says Kristina Lenss, designer of Kristinit. "This collection is about complementing fashion with sustainability — without sacrificing style."


Through collaboration with international design consultant ZoĆ« Melo, custom lace pieces handmade by artisan weavers in Brazil are one of the line’s most swoon-worthy details. As a neckline Cameo, the lace is a seductive contrast to the simple black dress, but it becomes fairy-tale sweet on a princess-line bodice.

"I feel really honored to be working with this group of women weavers," says Lenss. "Their traditional lace-making methods represent what a beautiful piece of clothing should embody: timelessness, love, and skill. Also, their work has an heirloom quality that can only be achieved when something is made by hand." This partnership supports fair trade and links women and beauty across the globe.



This marriage of traditional craftsmanship and trend-forward design is set against the backdrop of the line’s devotion to nature: from design inspiration to fabric selection to construction. Kristinit continues to manufacture locally in Los Angeles, minimizing pollution and supporting the local economy.

FRED SEGAL and PETRO ZILLIA boutiques carry the KRISTINIT collection in Los Angeles. For other locations click here. You can make personal orders or request look books directly from the designer, Kristina, by emailing sales@kristinit.com or visiting the website.

Also, be sure to check out Kristinit’s exclusive, end-of-season sample sale with up to 70% off retail. Head on over to the sale racks now and get some quality pieces at affordable prices.

Accessorize It

I have to admit, I am obsessed with denim. Dress it up, or dress it down...it always looks great! Take this adorable Denim Sweetheart Dress from American Eagle Outfitters ($44.50) for instance. It's very simple...but you could add a few accessories to it and turn it into an amazing outfit that will be envied by everyone!

Below are some items that will really make this dress go from a very ordinary to a great outfit. Which accessories would you add to make this outfit show off your style?

Beauty Buzz

Lately I really have been trying to keep my hair extra healthy because I want it to grow long. When I saw a commercial for John Frieda's Root Awakening Collection it got my attention. What this product claims to do is to give you three times healthier hair, starting at the roots. I HAD TO TRY IT!

The product I bought was the Health Boosting Detangling Spray. This daily leave-in spray nourishes from roots to ends, delivering essential vitamins and effective levels of natural Eucalyptus. It really smells quite good too! When I use the spray it smells like thin mint cookies...yum!

You can really feel this product working. The combination of the natural Eucalyptus and peppermint oil stimulates the scalp with a tingling sensation.

This product can be used on color-treated hair and does not weight it down. Actually I found that it makes my hair extremely soft, silky, and light as air.

Have you tried any of John Frieda's Root Awakening Collection? If you have then let us know what you think of it!

*Great Deal*

I have to admit, the summer heat in the city is really starting to get to me. No matter what I wear I feel sweaty and uncomfortable in this 90+ heat. Yuck!

While I was searching the sale section at J. Crew I came across the most adorable, and comfortable dress. This Dressy Jersey Belted Dress is now on sale for only $39.99 (regularly marked at $88). It comes in three great colors.

This dress really is perfect for just about anything! It is great for work (well, that is if you are lucky enough to have a casual dress code), you could wear it on a lunch date, or even when you are out shopping.

Wear this dress and you'll feel comfortable while looking very stylish. Snag one today!!!
