Sidewalk style at its bodacious best. I really don’t know about the heels ms. Longoria sported last evening but her hair, makeup & little black dress were simply killer!

Repeat Fashion Offenders: Rooney Mara and Elizabeth Banks at the MET GALA 2012


The girl with the dragon tattoo’s Rooney Mara in yet another black dress just like the many she wore during the promotional tour for the film. Why???

The minute Ms. Banks stepped out on the red carpet I found myself asking if she had borrowed her outfit from the set of her hit film ‘hunger games’ or if she’d come as the eccentric character she plays?
Personally, I am tired of this trend of actresses showing up on the red carpet as characters they play in films.

Fashionwidget’s Verdict: I love Dakota. I really do but this dress’ fit is a little off for me. I tried to substitute it will my own Polyvore suggestions above, let me know what you think. All in all I think she looks great and I love her footwear.

On the count that I cannot really see either her cross-body bag or the other thing that is hanging off of her (one of those fabric shopping bag perhaps) I did not substitute a look for that particular accessory. Feel free to experiment with your own choice of bag or clutch, just remember, if you are going with a yellow scarf like Jessica’s, let that be the statement.

Initial predictions for MBFW-NYFW insisted that navy blue would be the new black on the Fall 2012 runways but from the look things and what we we’re deducing on the eve of New York Fashion Week Fall 2012, strong, bold and bright colours seem poised to dominate and stylishly re-invent for autumn this year.

Ringer’s Sarah Michelle Gellar Sports Two Different Looks Outside the David Letterman Show in New York City

SIDEWALK STYLE

SMG (on her way in)SMG (on her way out)

FASHIONWIDGET’S VERDICT: I prefer her second look (where she is wearing red and black) because it’s a bit edgier and more flattering + those shoes are to die for…

Overall Rating
First look C-
Second look B+

Good Riddance Day – Fashionwidget’s Final Post of the Year that Was 2011

GOOD RIDDANCE!

Good Riddance Day 2011 in NYC

TOP 5 THINGS WE HOPE GO OUT WITH THE OLD YEAR↓

#1 Ridiculous Red Carpet Poses: Ask me to name names and I will plead the 5th, you and I know who they are, let’s just leave it at that and lunacy should stop after the full moon.

#2 Crossbody Evening Bags: It’s a very lazy look especially on people who aren’t very fashion forward + we would like to see what Sonakshi Sinha can do fashion-wise without those bags.

#3 Ridiculous Hats, Head-Gears and Fascinators: We’re still having nightmares all thanks to Princess Beatrice.

#4 One-Sleeve/One-Strap Dresses: Seriously.

#5 Style-Jacking: The Art of Copying another fashionista’s style to the bone. Let’s resolve to be original.

Sophie Choudhry

TV personality Kim Kardashian

TOP 5 TRENDS WE HOPE TO SEE MORE OF IN THE NEW YEAR↓

#1 KPOP Fashionistas: 2NE1 successfully breakthrough into US Mainstream.

#2 More Diversity on Magazine Covers: Thandie Newton has never been on the cover of vogue? Yikes.

#3 Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan on the Cannes Film-Festival Red Carpet: The global superstar and L’oreal Ambassador who marked her tenth year on the red carpet at Cannes this year, recently gave birth to a beautiful baby girl but we sincerely hope that this does not stop her from completing her annual fashionable pilgrimage to Cannes in 2012.

#4 Elevated Platform Shoes: They’re out but we can’t walk  in sky-high heels without ’em.

#5 Style- Growth: Zoë Saldaña & Olivia Palermo blazed the trail for blossoming fashionistas this year, we’ll like to see the trend continue.

On behalf of  my entire Fashionwidget team, I say cheers to the dawn of a new horizon. When I started this blog in March of 2011, I had no idea that it would have such an impact on people’s lives nor did I expect to become so dedicated to commenting on fashion and helping people improve their lives in my own little way. I would like to thank all my friends and family members who have served as guest bloggers, commentators, contributors, proof-readers and so much more along the way. I would also like to thank every single person who took the time out to read, comment, subscribe, follow, like, re-tweet, re-blog Fashionwidget content throughout the year, we couldn’t have done it without you. Here’s to 2012, I wish you all the best that it has to bring and may we all stay fashionably connected, healthy, wealthy, stylish, happy and prosperous throughout the year.
