What she’s wearing: The Twilight star wore a Yigal Azrouel Resort 2013 dress to the Carbon Audio’s Zooka Launch Party in West Hollywood, California.
Why we love it: The dress mixes the perfect balance of laciness and sheerness. Sheer lace can go vulgar pretty quickly and easily but luckily for Greene the dress has a nude lining to protect her from a serious wardrobe malfunction. Tangerine is one of the hottest colours for Spring 2012, which takes this dress to the next level. The playful colour is fun and youthful, but sexy enough that your grandmother probably wouldn’t wear it! (Unless your grandma is totally hip and fashionable, but I can’t foresee any grannies pulling this look off. No offense to your grandma!)
Takeaway: Tangerine!! Seeing how this dress is designed for the 2013 Resort Season, this colour will be classic enough to have in your arsenal for a while.
What she’s wearing: The New Girl star was spotted at the premiere of The Campaign wearing a white peasant-cropped top from Dolce & Gabbana and a marigold skirt from The Rachel Zoe 2013 Resort Collection.
Why we love it: This screams easy, breezy, bohemian summer! Crop tops have made a comeback and have been seen in a lot of the Spring/Summer 2012 runways. While tops are getting shorter, skirts are going longer. The knee-length A-line skirt offers the right balance to counteract the crop top, and it’s in a rich shade of yellow that makes her blue nails and clutch pop!
Takeaway: Crop tops can be tricky and a parent’s nightmare. But what’s important about this look is to pair it with a high-waisted skirt that falls on or just above your navel. Showing your navel would be trashy and might get you grounded, but hiding it will make you look chic and classy.
What she’s wearing: Seventeen Magazine cover model (along with sister Kylie) wore a sleeveless blue and white dress at a Seventeen Magazine poolside party in honour of the younger “Kardashians.”
Why we love it: The architectural details of the skirt and top give the dress a cool modern shape and silhouette. The band of the skirt gives Kendall a waist, otherwise the dress would be too boxy. Colour blocking has been a major trend over the last couple of seasons which helps give this look high marks. The chunky gold necklace provides a nice accent colour and makes a bold statement.
Takeaway: Try colour blocking with multiple bold and bright colours, a hot trend for Spring/Summer 2012. If you’re wary of bold colours, stick to one and pair it with a neutral colour. And remember colour blocking only works when you have clean lines, otherwise it would be called colour blobbing instead of blocking.

Vampires and werewolves unite! The cast of twilight were joined by a number of celebrity friends as they took to the black carpet at Monday’s premiere of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1.
Fans queued for days by the theatre to score autographs and pictures from their favourite Twilight actors such as Kirsten Stewart, and heartthrobs Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner. Also in attendance were Twilight author Stephanie Meyer, singer Cody Simpson, 90210’s Matt Lanter and Bruno Mars, who’s song “It Will Rain” is featured on the soundtrack.
One thing is for sure – the cast dressed to impress! Stewart, who plays Bella Swan, was all smiles as she stunned the crowd with her J Mendel purple sequined dress with a thigh high slit revealing her never-ending legs.
Robert Pattinson took away the breath of every girl in the audience, no doubt, looking as dashing as ever in a crisp
Taylor Lautner was dressed to perfection in his grey suit and purple tie. Is that a Movember moustache we see him sporting? We like!
The Cullen boys took to the red carpet in individual styles. Kellan Lutz blending in to the carpet with his all-black ensemble, making his blue eyes stand out quite nicely. Peter Facinelli wore a blue suit and scarf, overtop a white button down shirt. Jackson Rathbone proved his individuality by sporting a red velvet suit – wow!
The women of the Cullen clan looked ravishing. Ashely Greene was seen in a sultry red Donna Karan strapless tulle dress. Elizabeth Reaser wore a vintage beaded dress that lit up the carpet, and Nikki Reed put on asimple yet stunning green, over-the-shoulder chiffon dress.
Stephenie Meyer, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Bruno Mars, Danica Patrick, Liam Hemsworth, and Kendall and Kylie Jenner all graced the carpet with their presence.
Don’t worry fans, they’re still not breaking up! Just because Kevin has gotten married and disappeared from the world, Nick has been working on his acting and producing songs, and Joe has been working on his solo album, it still doesn’t mean that the trio are separating! Of course not.
Where have these three brothers been, you may ask? Valid question. But it seems we have found one of them! Joe Jonas can be seen adorning this month’s issue of Details magazine. And might we say, he is looking mighty fine!
In the article, Jonas dishes about breaking out of the teen-idol shell and making a name for himself, sans Nick and Kevin.
“I’m growing up, the fans are growing up,” Joe told Details. “I’ve gone through a lot of stuff in my life so far. There are stories I haven’t really been able to tell. When you’re writing with three people, you wind up with a sound that might be—not average—but, you know, expected.”
The article, entitled “Joe Goes it Alone” (but remember, they’re NOT breaking up), goes on to express Joe’s feelings of going solo:
“We’re not breaking up, we’re just taking a break,” Joe says. “I really have a hope for the fans that got older and went, ‘You know what, I’m really not into the Jonas Brothers anymore,’ that I’m able to catch their ear again with my project and they’re able to go, like, ‘Hey, this is cool stuff, I’m happy listening to this, I’m not embarrassed listening to this.’”
According to Perez Hilton, Joe recently opened up about his upcoming album, and working with producer Danja:
“I think for me the biggest influences are Daft Punk. I love their music. There’s a guy, Frankmusik, out of London, a lot of electro DJs out in Europe are doing some cool stuff right now. I just listen to a bunch of stuff you dance to, kind of electro-based. A lot of stuff that’s so amazing [that] you can create on the computer. I think, for both of us, we are huge fans of the new ‘Tron‘ movie. To be able to go on a musical journey for a while and finally with finding Danja and working with him, we’ve been able to collaborate on something that really works for me. And to find me and not try to mold it into something it’s not, to try and be myself and my music and kind of tell stories and be honest and just have something … when people hear it, hopefully they’ll be able to dance to it and have a good time.”
Hmm…this sounds extremely different from the usual Jonas melodies, making me sceptical to believe it completely. But one thing’s for sure; I will be dancing when this album comes out!
“It’s Joe’s album, it’s not just something put together for him,” Danja told Details. “He’s collaborating with the writing. He’s very different from what you’d expect. All I can say is he’s an adult man. He has a rock-star edge about him.”
Will it be good, will it be bad; will it makes our ears bleed, or leave us singing our praises? So many questions, so little answers, especially keeping in mind that Hollywood Records promised this album in early 2011. Reality check, it’s already mid-March. So where is it?!
Ashley Greene, who plays Alice Cullen in the Twilight films thanks her hectic work schedule for her figure, reports Perez Hilton.
“We were working 12 hours a day,” said the 22-year-old, “so it didn’t leave too much time to eat. We had a personal trainer and then we also had fight training. It was a good four hours a day of training.”
She said when she did eat on-set, it was really healthy stuff, and she also takes the time to do Pilates. “I do it early in the morning. It wakes you up and it’s kind of refreshing. And that is basically it. Sometimes cardio. I am not a big weight person because when I do weights I build muscle mass.”
The now-infamous cast of Eclipse, the Twilight sequel have been spotted throughout Vancouver where the third installment of the series is currently filming. It will be a prime time for some snooping too, as rumours have been flying about romances between a number of duos on the set.
Lead actors Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson arrived just days ago, Stewart still clad with a mullet from her title role in the Joan Jett biopic Runaways. They were sited a few nights ago getting cozy at a Kings of Leon concert in Vancouver Aug. 15, with photos of them practically making out appearing on RadarOnline.com and Just Jared. This comes after the two attended Comic-Con, an international and now celebrity hot spot comic book convention in San Diego, where they were practically joined at the hip according to the Los Angeles Times.
Breaking Dawn, the fourth and final installment of the Twilight series, will shoot right after the third film, Eclipse, according to Perez Hilton. While the second and third films were previously slated to be filmed back-to-back, fans were concerned about no apparent plans for the fourth movie.
Ashley Greene, who plays Alice Cullen in the films, recently revealed in an interview that she would be preparing to shoot the last installment immediately after shooting wrapped on the third movie. “We’re going to start right after Eclipse,” she said.
Filming for Eclipse is planned to begin August 17 of this year, and is expected to wrap around October 31.
