Hot Stepping with Christie Brinkley – New York City Street Style

SUPERMODEL

WHO: Christie Brinkley

WHAT: Street Style NYC

WHEN: May 31st 2011

WHERE: The theatre district, New York City.

FASHIONWIDGET’S VERDICT: Christie’s laid-back chic proves that less is more and that million dollar smile of hers just adds the extra voltage needed to carry off such a look without coming across as boring or too homely. We just love those gold tone strappy heels. This is street style the supermodel way. A+

The Era of the Rockera – Shakira’s Concert Style in Barcelona

ROCKERA STYLE

WHO: Shakira

WHAT: Concert Style

WHEN: May 28th 2011

WHERE: Lluis Campanys Olympic Stadium, Barcelona, Spain.

FASHIONWIDGET’S VERDICT: Before these set of pics, we hadn’t seen Shakira since the success of her world cup anthem reached its peak late in 2010. We are glad to see that she is still successfully on her world tour promoting her current album ‘Sale el Sol’ and managing to send us stylish postcards of her wardrobe along the way courtesy of our friends at Getty Images Europe who attended one of her shows in Barcelona over the weekend. We especially love the Marchesa-ish cobalt blue tulle dress(worn to perform a ballad we hope). B+

Street Style with Christina Ricci – Happy Memorial Day Weekend from Fashionwidget

STREET STYLE

WHO: Christina Ricci

WHAT: Cali Street Style

WHEN: May 28th, 2011

WHERE: Los Feliz, California

FASHIONWIDGET’S VERDICT: We’re loving her chic argyle tank top matched with pencil fold-up jeans, brogues (golfing shoes) and a cross-body bag that doubles as a tote. What’s not to love? Not too fussy, Christina gets it. This is an easy A. See our version of her look below.

Teach Us Halle, TEACH US!!! Halle Berry Re-defines LBD in a Cut-Out Midi

WOW!

WHO: Halle Berry

WHAT: FiFi Awards at The Tent at Lincoln Center

WHEN: May 24th, 2011

WHERE: New York City

FASHIONWIDGET’S VERDICT: Okay, what is happening? What’s happening? This woman is turning 45 in August yet she looks like she will be turning 25. Normally, I would be the first person to be shouting “dress according to your age!!!” to any woman over forty wearing a freakum dress but if you’re 44 yet you look 24, please by all means flaunt it to anyone and everyone who would look and if you’re Halle Berry, you definitely will not have any problems in that arena. God blessed you Halle and may God continue to bless you, AMEN. A+

FLOTUS Michelle Obama’s Global Chic – Fashionwidget’s Favourite Picks

FIRST LADY OF THE US

WHO: Michelle Obama

WHAT: Six day trip to Ireland, the United Kingdom, France and Poland

WHEN: The week of May 22, 2011

WHERE: Europe

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

FASHIONWIDGET’S VERDICT: Classy. Chic. Stylish. Sophisticated. I especially loved the black Ralph Lauren gown she wore to the farewell dinner party, that’s my personal pick from the entire trip. I just don’t get her detractors when they nit-pick at everything she wears, we are not the first to report on Michelle’s UK style but I must say we might be one of the selected few who actually fancied her global chic wardrobe. Michelle Obama is a very beautiful and stylish woman with a great figure. Let’s leave it at that. People who feel the need to compare her to former first ladies or comment on the shape of her body are just being ridiculous because this woman can only be one person and that is who she is… Michelle Obama.

Joan Smalls…We Love Her Style – Fashionwidget Helps You GET THE LOOK

LBD

WHO: Joan Smalls

WHAT:  Whitney Art Party: The Ground-breakers at Highline Stages

WHEN: May 24th 2011

WHERE: New York City

FASHIONWIDGET’S VERDICT: She gets it, she really does.  Pairing her shimmering sequins black mini little black dress with ankle-strap stilettos and a not too fussy clutch is a very classic New York City classy club scene look. Normally, I don’t like bump-it coifs but the hairstyle completes her look perfectly. A+

NYC Sidewalk Style with Solange Knowles – GET THE LOOK

SOLANGE STYLISTA

WHO: Solange Knowles

WHAT: Sidewalk Style – Monoi Repairing Collection launch at Sephora

WHEN: May 24th, 2011

WHERE: New York City, NY

FASHIONWIDGET’S VERDICT: Yes we do admit that Solange’s style is a bit of an acquired taste for most… but we absolutely love what we see here. With yellow being a very jealous colour, it’s easy for more than one shade paired together to clash and become a fashion disaster but we’re happy to report that is not the case here. Solange got it just right. Simply Chic. A

Leona Lewis Continues to Trend Her Unique Style

AN ACQUIRED TASTE

WHO: Leona Lewis

WHAT: Midriff baring Fashion Statements

WHEN: May 23rd, 2011

WHERE: BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra’s Hackney weekend at Hackney Empire, London, England.

FASHIONWIDGET’S VERDICT: Again with the bare midriff look. The scalloped hem is interesting but the look is much too busy for my personal taste. See our past feature on Leona for more details.

Hollywood Fashion with Victoria Beckham – Pregnant in Über Heels

MATERNITY SPICE

WHO: Victoria ‘Posh Spice’ Beckham

WHAT: Simon Fuller’s Hollywood Walk Of Fame Ceremony

WHEN: May 23rd, 2011

WHERE: Hollywood, California

FASHIONWIDGET’S VERDICT: *Please DO NOT ATTEMPT THIS LOOK unless you are the fashionista seen above.* We do not advocate pregnancy in pumps but Victoria makes it look wicked good. We believe that the maternity gown she is wearing is one of her own designs from the current season. Perhaps she brought her son, Brooklyn along for support in case she slipped in those seven-inch-custom-made Christian Louboutin pumps. We get it Posh, your fashion does not take a break for anything but please endeavour to wear some flats at some point during your pregnancy. B-
