Get the Look: Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow in Captain America The Winter Soldier

Just saw the second installment of Captain America and it did not disappoint! My film-buff boyfriend loved it and thought Scarlett Johansson did a great job as Black Widow in the film. I couldn’t agree more. She’s so bad ass, but still vulnerable and sassy. I love it! And she looks so awesome with red hair and minimal makeup. I like that she plays up the character’s personality with more severe clothing choice but also wears very delicate, dainty jewelry.

Get actress Scarlett Johansson’s look (as the character Black Widow) from Marvel comic’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier with Stella & Dot’s silver On The Mark Arrow Necklace. She wore a similar arrow necklace throughout the movie that was super cute and delicate.

Stella & Dot’s silver arrow necklace is sterling silver and is also available in gold. Also check out the matching Arrow Cuff and Arrow Ring to go with it!


Get The Look: Miley Cyrus at Fall 2013 Mercedes Benz Fashion Week

Say what you want about Miley Cyrus, but the girl has guts. I love this fresh look that she wore at Fall 2013 Mercedes Benz Fashion Week (a photo from a little while ago, but a style that’s still very relevant). I want to copy everything about this look! Every piece is strong but when it’s all paired together, it looks subtle and chic. Plus, it’s such a great way to wear your summer maxi dress in fall & winter! Rock it, Miley!

Get the Look: The Bachelorette Desiree Hartsock

ABC’s newest star of The Bachelorette visited news correspondent Michael Yo from OMG! Insider to dish about her feelings for the remaining men on the show.

Des was mum about who she gave the final rose to, but isn’t so mum about her fashion choices.

Get the Look: Lesley on The Bachelor “Women Tell All”

One of my fave bachelorettes on this season’s of ABC’s The Bachelor was Lesley Murphy, the little spit-fire political consultant from Arkansas. I wanna be her friend! Lol. I loved her look on The Bachelor “Women Tell All” episode [ABC, The Bachelor, Women Tell All episode; Monday, March 5, 2013] with the red dress and green drop earrings. It’s a cool color combo, huh? Get the look with the two Stella & Dot jewelry options seen below.

The Bachelor‘s AshLee Frazier looked absolutely gorgeous on last night’s episode of The Bachelor “Women Tell All” [ABC, The Bachelor, Women Tell All Episode, Monday, March 4, 2013] in her tight blue Herve Leger bandage dress and turquoise jewelry. Plus, her awesome new hair color (and longer length!), which Sean noted on the show. I guess looking good is the best revenge, eh?

Get the Look: Kyle Richards of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

Kyle Richards hair gets the most Google searches, but I think her accessories are pretty awesome, as well. In the recent episode on Bravo’s hit TV show, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, she wore a fabulous statement necklace while hanging out with Kim before the White Party. [February 18, 2013; Bravo, RHOBH, Season 3, Episode 14]

Get the Look: Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

Real housewife of Beverly Hills Adrienne Maloof has said she loves a big statement earring. And she was recently seen on an episode of Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills wearing gorgeous green drop earrings that everyone has been asking about. While I haven’t yet found the exact earrings that Adrienne Maloof wore on the show, I do recommend checking out these genuine green jade Serenity Stone Drop Earrings from Stella & Dot. For just $49, I’m sure it’s a lot less than the real housewife paid for her pair.


The green jade Serenity Stone Drop Earrings from Stella & Dot have been seen on Brooke Burke and Stacy Kiebler. And look-alike styles have been seen on actresses Reese Witherspoon, Charlize Theron, and Emma Stone, and on Bachelorette Emily Maynard. They also come in turquoise.

And if all that wasn’t enough to want these earrings, consider this: The leading industry expert on color trends, Pantone, chose Emerald Green as the 2013 Color of the Year! Now we know RWOBV Adrienne Maloof and all these A-listers are really on-trend!

Another great look for less? Get Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Brandie Glanville’s turquoise look with Stella & Dot jewelry (shown above). Try the turquoise and jade Azure Couture Chandelier Earrings (one sale!) and the genuine turquoise Maya Pendant, both from Stella & Dot jewelry, shown below.


Get the Look: Taylor Swift at the 2013 People’s Choice Awards

The media is buzzing about Taylor Swift’s new smoldering look from the 2013 People’s Choice Awards. The lovely country singer stepped on to the red carpet wearing a long white dress with a daringly low neckline and gorgeous turquoise drop earrings. Another key part of her new look? Smoky eyes and plump lips. Use a coppery-brown color to line the entire eye, add a coral lip and knockout earrings… And you’re set to steal any guy’s heart!

Emily Maynard of The Bachelorette Season Finale

 I loved Emily Maynard’s outfit at the beginning of the episode for the The Bachelorette season finale, and I have been actually wanting to get a coral maxi skirt AND a chambray shirt, so this served as perfection inspiration for my next new ensemble. I love the two together — don’t you?!? [ABC The Bachelorette, Episode 11, season finale; aired Sunday, July 22, 2012]

Emily Maynard of ABC’s The Bachelorette “Men Tell All” episode talks to Chris about the season 8 bachelors this week [aired Monday, July 16, 2012 on ABC, episode 10].

Get The Look: Charlize Theron on The View

Charlize Theron was a guest on ABC’s The View this morning [Friday, June 1, 2012] promoting her two summer blockbuster movies, Snow White and the Huntsmen and Prometheus, and she was look especially glowy and gorgeous. She wore a beautiful black sweater, a cream pencil skirt, fuschia lips and fabulous green statement earrings. I believe the green earrings are from Irene Neuwirth, as recently seen on Reese Witherspoon, valued at over $8,000!

But you can get Charlize Theron’s look for less with these fabulous fashion finds…

Left to Right: Green jade Serenity Stone Drop Earrings from Stella & Dot; Phard Long Sleeve Black Sweater from; and Jill Sander Cream Wool-Blend Pencil Skirt from The Outnet.

Get the Look: Reese Witherspoon

If there is one woman celeb that I have a major girl-crush for, it’s Reese Witherspoon. She somehow seems to combine that perfect combination of sweet and sassy, and classy and sexy, all at once. She’s funny and whip-smart and has uber cool girlfriends (hi, Chelsea!), and did I mentioned that she’s a Southern girl. I just can’t resist.

Reese looked every part the cool girl at ELLE’s 18th Annual Women in Hollywood Tribute held at the Four Seasons Hotel on October 17, 2011 in Los Angeles, California. Her hint of black lace underneath her sleek black tuxedo jacket is very chic, but what makes her outfit pop are her stunning green jade earrings from Irene Neuwirth, valued at over $9,000.

Get the look for much less with these options:

From left to right: Jones New York Tuxedo Jacket on, Black Lace Tank Top from Forever21, and Green Serenity Drop Earrings from Stella & Dot.

Get The Look: Emma Stone

I’ve always loved Emma, but now I am absolutely loving her style! She has been choosing from very fun, flirty and bold style choices lately. For the 15th Annual Hollywood Film Awards Galas, she chose a playful, pleated beige Jonathan Saunders frock (which happens to be from his Spring 2012 wedding dress collection, who knew?) and nude Christian Dior sandals. She paired it off with bright bold fuschia lips and large, green Irene Neuwirth statement earrings.

Get the look for less with the Mina Mesh & Lace Dress from For the shoes, try Betsey Johnson’s Tinaaa Pump for a funky, edgy vibe, or go with Jessica Simpson’s Ediea Nude Bow Platform Pump for a feminine look.

I love that Emma Stone mixed the funky and bright with the classic and neutral. Her playful hot pink lips and fun green earrings look fabulous with her red hair and classic pin curl updo.

Get the look for less with the large green Serenity Stone Earrings from Stella & Dot, and mark. Lipclick Full Color Lipstick in Tutu.

Get the Look: Gwyneth Paltrow

I love Gwyneth Paltrow’s daytime style as she leans toward casual basics that are both classically tailored and a little boho. This outfit, below, is the perfect use of neutrals. Gwyneth pairs grey and cognac with classic blue jeans for the ultimate weekend look.

I don’t know a gal who doesn’t have a white t-shirt and jeans, the basis of this outfit, so most everyone has the basics to wear this look already. Pair with your basics a tailored grey jacket, and some mid-calf cognac boots, and you’re nearly done. Just top off the look with some cool shades and layered boho necklaces.

From left to right: Charles Albert Women’s Boot, $30, from; Love ADAM Birdseye Tweed Jacket, $150, from; Awakening Wood Bead Charm Necklace, $79, from Stella & Dot; Snake Orb Necklace, $98, from Stella & Dot jewelry.

Get the Look: Anne Hathaway in Belmain

Hello graphic! This look is much out of my comfort zone but it’s still utterly fantastic and feminine. The first thing I notice is Anne Hathaway’s bright smile. Isn’t that what fashion is all about? Having fun, smiling, laughing and setting your spirit free? Get this simple, graphic, tailored look with a few key pieces: black trousers, a tuxedo jacket or blazer and a rocker tee.

Get the look for less with the Ponte Knit Editor Pant from Express; the Asos Linen Boyfriend Blazer from or the White Boyfriend Jacket from Guess; and the Vintage Havana graphic tee from

Pair the outfit with stellar accessories: Funky, retro sunglasses, bold jewelry and bright, hot pink nails. Try the Candies Bow Cat Eye Sunglasses from Kohls or the Sabre Vision Runaway Sunglasses from; the black onyx Perfect Faceted Earrings from Stella & Dot; the graphic Nouvelle Cocktail Ring from Stella & Dot; and add a pop of color with Butter London 3 Free Nail Lacquer from Revolve Clothing.

Get the Look: Oprah Winfrey on the Oprah Show

In honor of the fabulous talk show host’s last year on television, get Oprah’s look on a non-Oprah budget. The amazing Oprah Winfrey interviewed country singer Shania Twain on May 3, 2011 on the Oprah Show, and glammed out her wrist several chunky bracelets and donning a pretty floral top.

Get Oprah’s look by layering several Stella & Dot bracelets together, such as the Revival Bracelet, Prosper Bracelet and the Wishing Nugget Bracelet. And try the Lucca Couture Floral Peasant Blouse from, or the Tommy Bahama Tiger Lily Blouse from

Stella & Dot Hoop Earrings in February 2011 Issue of Oprah Magazine

Get the Look: Helen Mirren

I absolutely love this Dolce & Gabanna cheetah print maxi dress that actress Helen Mirren wore to the European premiere of the movie Arthur. What a hot look! The 65-year-old actress looks absolutely stunning and proves that you can wear wild animal prints no matter your age.

Get this look for less with your own leopard print maxi dress, faux leather moto jacket and some fabulous Stella & Dot jewels. And you can make it more day appropriate (think a BBQ or brunch) by pairing it with a cropped jean jacket, gladiator sandals and bohemian chandelier earrings. [Photo courtesy of Red Carpet Fashion Awards.]

To get this look, first start with a motorcycle jacket. Choose one that’s fitted and cropped, like this Burnout Leather Jacket from Roxy. For the main show-stopper, check out the Return to the Wild Dress from or try this Leopard Maxi Dress from Victoria’s Secret.

Sweeten up the look with sparkly jewelry and a fresh face. Try the Jill CZ Hoop Earrings for high impact, and the Glint Flower Necklace and the Stackable Deco Rings for that extra sparkle, all from Stella & Dot jewelry. Go for a matte, pinky-nude lip gloss, such as the Buxom Lip Polish in Bunny from Bare Esccentuals cosmetics.

Get The Look: Desperate Housewives, Episode 2

This season of ABC’s hit tv show Desperate Housewives is getting good! And the fashion is still top notch. (But still not up to par with the now-cancelled show Lipstick Jungle. Sigh.) I noticed quite a few jewelry items that looked a lot like Stella & Dot pieces, and the housewives rocked them throughout the entire episode (episode 2, season 7; aired Sunday, October, 3, 2010). Check them out below!

Susan’s hoop earrings, above, look a lot like the Gilda Hoop Earrings in sterling silver from Stella & Dot.

Gabby’s colorful teal earrings are similar to the Turquoise Sea Drop Earrings from Stella & Dot.

Bree keeps her look simple, subtle and sweet with simple stud earrings, like the Glint Pave Earrings, and with a diamond cross necklace, like the CZ Cross Necklace, both from Stella & Dot.

Spice up your own neighborhood block with fun, silver hoop earrings, such as the Fringe Hoop Earrings from Stella & Dot. And wrap a playful bracelet around your wrist — try the Nugget Wrap Leather Bracelet in silver, also from Stella & Dot.

Get The Look: Joan Halloway on Mad Men

Not only is Mad Men back for its fourth season, the show’s fashion influence is stronger than ever! Lady-like silhouettes and muted colors have been strong trends for the past two seasons, and this season is no different. Designers are debuting nipped-waist dresses, notch collars, vintage jackets, round toe heels and pearls galore. Stella & Dot stays on-trend with the new Vintage Luxe collection, which was partly inspired by Joan Halloway’s character on Mad Men, see the inspirations for the new jewelry collection below.

Joan looks especially glam and saucy in the Season 4 promo images, seen below, donning a red satin dress, red lips and lots of gold jewelry. And even though Joan’s dress is a scoopneck and 3/4 length sleeves, the style would be equally hot in a one-shoulder style or sleeveless number, since the jewelry and hair are able to work with any look.  Just be sure to look for dresses that are fitted, knee length (God forbid Joan ever look dowdy!) and has a gethered or banded waist. To get this look for a lot less cash, check out some of the suggestions below.


Psssst! Christina Hendricks, who plays Joan Halloway on Mad Men, adores her Stella & Dot jewelry in real life and on the red carpet. Here she is, above, wearing the Gilda Hoop Earrings in Gold.

Joan looks sexy in her red satin scoopneck dress. Dresses from left to right: V-neck Dress from Victoria’s Secret; Red Satin Sheath Dress from ModCloth; Alice San Diego Vintage Dress from Yoox; One-Shoulder Dress from Unique Vintage.

Get Joan’s look with Stella & Dot jewelry! From left to right: Audrey Cluster Necklace; Delicate Drop Earrings; Brigette Necklace; Pearl Cluster Cocktail Ring. Or check out the suggestions from Stella & Dot, below.

Get The Look: Ali on The Bachelorette

We all know Frank gave Ali the cold shoulder and left her for his ex-girlfriend. Hey, at least the girl can get over the heartache on a beautiful island in Tahiti. She shouldn’t complain too much. Besides, Chris and Roberto are both dreamy, hot, “real” men. I mean, geeze, if Ali doesn’t want ‘em, send them over my way!

But she does like the two remaining guys. We saw the sparks flying between Ali and Roberto on their helicopter date in episode 9, which aired on Monday, July 19, 2010. And Roberto wasn’t the only eye candy in the show. A few of you have emailed me about Ali’s ring and asked if it was Stella & Dot. It is not, but you can get the same look with some Stella & Dot jewels. In fact, we have several gold flower rings in our collection, so you can pick and choose your favorite look-alike. Now all you need is a sexy latino and a helicopter….

Try the Charlotte Pearl Ring or the Belle Fleur Ring in Gold from Stella & Dot jewelry. Both are less than $50 and look just like Ali’s ring on The Bachelorette. For more of a statement, try the Jardin Ring, on sale for just $33 — But hurry, because once it’s gone, it’s gone for good!

Get the Look: Alex McCord from Real Housewives of New York City

Bethenny spills the beans to Alex over lunch about her engagement, but she continues to keep her pregnancy under wraps. The two friends got together for lunch at Alex’s home in Brooklyn in episode 5 of Bravo’s hit show Real Housewives of New York City. Alex was looking like quite the chic housewife in a pink button-up shirt, jeans and statement necklace. She proves what I’ve been saying all along — Jewelry has the ability to transform your look from ho-hum to fabulous. It takes just as much effort to put on a teeny chain necklace as it does to wrap a statement necklace around your neck. Why not go for the WOW factor? Show the world that your you’re not only a fun and responsible mommy, but a stylish one to boot.

Get Alex’s the look from the Real Housewives of New York City with the Colette Ribbon Necklace from Stella & Dot. The necklace (shown below) has the same mixed chains and pearls that Alex’s necklace has in the show, but for a lot less cash. The mixed chains paired with delicate, feminine pearls and a pink ribbon is fun and trendy, but it still looks quite classic. Just take a look at Alex, below: She wears a classic shirt and her trusty blue jeans, but her necklace helps keep her look modern and fresh.

Get The Look: Alex McCord of Real Housewives of NYC

The housewives verbally battle it out over Jill and Bethenny’s feud while trying to handle business for their Brooklyn Fashion Weekend during Episode 5, Season 3 of Bravo’s Real Housewives of New York City. I couldn’t help but notice Alex McCord’s gold hoop earrings — Not to mention her very diplomatic and firm approach to the feuding girlfriends! Get Alex’s look for a lot less with the 14kt gold vermeil Gilda Links Earrings for just $44 from Stella & Dot, seen below.

Get The Look: LuAnn de Lesseps from Real Housewives of NYC

I’m not the biggest fan of the Real Housewives of New York City on Bravo TV. I like the Jersey girls and my local OC ladies a lot more. And after watching the Season 3 premiere episode, I’m getting really tired of LuAnn making everything into such a big deal, when it should be water under the bridge. I mean, during her lunch date with Bethenny, she brought up issues from the year before. She should be over it already! And honestly, if my friend invites me out for drinks, I certainly don’t expect her to pay for them. But maybe that’s just how we roll out here in California.

Nonetheless, I am loving LuAnn’s jewelry and accessories choices. The other Housewives of NYC usually wear plain gold hoops or gold bangles. Nothing wrong with it, but I love that LuAnn makes a statement with her jewelry choices.

The large hoop earrings that LuAnn wore in the Season 3 premiere episode, below, look just like the Stella & Dot Sun Disc Earrings, which come in either sterling silver for $34 or 14kt gold vermeil for $39, shown below right.

And I loved how LuAnn added a pop of color to her grey cowlneck dress with a beaded turquoise necklace. To get a similar look, check out the gorgeous turquoise pieces from Stella & Dot, below. Click on the image for more details.

Get The Look: First Lady Michelle Obama Wearing Pearl Bracelets

I’ve found countless pics of First Lady Michelle Obama wearing stacks of pearl bracelets — or one large pearl bracelet — on her left wrist. It’s a different approach from her usual  jewelry choices, as she tends to wear brooches or colorful statement necklaces to pump up her style. Get the look with Stella & Dot’s many jewelry options, at a price to suit any budget. For those who need to tighten their belts, try the Pearl Soiree Bracelet for $29. Stack a few of them for a look similar to the First Lady’s. Or try the fan favorite Grace Pearl Bauble Bracelet for $89, below left, which Guilana Rancic wore on the Emmy’s red carpet. For a true stunner, look no further than the Coin Pearl Bracelet for $128, below right, featuring 6 strands of genuine coin pearls and freshwater pearls.

The lovely First Lady also stacks bracelets of varying colors, sizes and textures on her wrists, as seen in the photo when she was at the recent state dinner in Washington wearing a Rachel Roy skirt and J. Crew cardigan (above, bottom right) or at a Denver high school wearing a grey argyle sweater (above, top right). Get the look by stacking several Soiree Pave Pearl Bracelets together in the colors of your choice: grey, brown, champagne, ivory and black.

Get The Look: Reese Witherspoon in InStyle Magazine

Oh, Reese, how do we love thee? Let us count the ways: Beauty, brains, talent, compassion and practicality — near perfection, really. Her photos in the November 2009 issue of InStyle put me in the mood for the holidays. Her gilded dress took center stage for her cover look and the strapless yellow number transformed from cheery, summertime staple to holiday-party-ready with the grace of a single blazer. She proves that you can look amazing with fierce accessories and without breaking the bank.

These looks, straight from the pages of InStyle, are very well-priced — the most expensive item is the LBD for about $650! You gotta love it!

For the cover look (my favorite!), Reese wore a DKNY gold strapless dress, Sid Vintage necklaces and a black Brooks Brothers blazer. Her yellow strapless dress is from French Connection, black stilettos from Aldo, and a grey wool blazer from Brooks Brothers with a Fallon necklace. The look on the far right features a Alexander Wang dress, black leather cutout heels from Aldo, cuffs from Dannijo and necklaces from Roxanne Assoulin For Lee Angel.

The dresses are perfection (and, really, why mess with perfection?) and they are well priced, so I wouldn’t dare suggest any look-alike items. For the blazer, check out the black blazer from the Lauren Conrad Collection for Kohl’s. The Aldo shoes shown on Reese are great quality, but if you want something around $50, check out the styles below from Sheik Shoes. And for the jewelry, of course check out Stella & Dot! Layer on several pieces to get the same look as Reese and you’ll be ready for any holiday party, anytime, anywhere!

Above: Michael Antonio Thorston for, $48; Pleaser Entice Black Patent Pump from, $55.

Below: Try the Ava Cupchain Black Ribbon Necklace and the matching Ava Cupchain Earrings for Reese’s “yellow dress” look. For Reese’s rocker look with the black tank dress, try the Adrienne Mixed Chain Necklace paired with a statement bracelet, such as a couple of the Claudette Pave Bangle Bracelet stacked on one wrist. Or try the Adele Cuff or the Geometric Bangle for a similiar look; all from Stella & Dot jewelry.

For Reese’s cover look, make a statament by pairing several gold necklaces together, such as the Gabrielle Citrine Necklace, the La CoCo Brooch Necklace, and the Vintage Textured Chain Necklace all from Stella & Dot
