Mia Wasikowska looked like a budding starlet as she arrived at the 2011 Independent Spirit Awards. We're especially obsessed with her Rodarte for Opening Ceremony lace-ruffled dress, but love her dual-toned pumps as well. Mia wore little else, but we added some silver accessories for a little punk panache. Shop the exact dress, with all the rest, now.
Reese Witherspoon looked comfy and cute as she took her kids to a birthday party at the W in Westwood.

Shop the entire look now.
Serena van der Woodsen looks a little sad in this picture, but her styling is anything but. In fact, the gold blazer and blue pant combo is the embodiment of cheery. Add a bold, chain-link cuff, Brian Atwood pumps, and a Chanel bag, and what's not to love? Heads up miss van der Woodsen.

Rachel Bilson did a little damage at Saks Fifth Avenue in Beverly Hills looking cozy in her raglan sweatshirt.

Jennifer Garner looked sultry and seductive at the Toronto premiere of The Town.

We always like to know what's going on with Rachel Roy's lower-priced line, Rachel Rachel Roy. Can you blame us? Everything is super unique, but most importantly, affordable. Roy's new slew of earrings are especially spotlight-worthy. The Zebra Drop Earrings ($36) are exotic, the Hanging Mesh Lace Earrings ($85) are glamorous, and the Spike and Pearl Dangle Earrings ($44) are for the classy gal who has a badass bone. Take your pick!
Eva Longoria shined on the red carpet in at the 2010 Primetime Emmy Awards. She wore a statuesque black Robert Rodriguez gown, which she accessorized with magenta chandelier earrings and an embellished black clutch. A huge diamond ring finished it all off. Shop a similar look here.
After years of being mocked, cat ladies may have the last laugh — at least when it comes to the beauty world. Cutesy kitties popped up on Miu Miu's spring 2010 runway, and now they're heading to your makeup bag. Paul & Joe have limited-edition cat-head lipsticks, while MAC's newest collection is inspired by Burmese and Russian Blue cats. Then again, Stila's always had a hit with Kitten, its shimmery pink cult-fave eye shadow. Feeling feline? Click the photos to check out some of the catty offerings.
There are few kids cooler than Ferris Bueller. No school, no rules, no limits. Just a cool car, a couple of friends, and a dream for the perfect day off. Factor in Ferris's sweetie, Sloane, and you've got one ridiculously cool couple. I watched Ferris Bueller's Day Off wishing Ferris would bail me out of class and take me for a ride in the Ferrari. If you had the same teen dream, channel a little back to cool via Sloane Peterson. Mix funky fringe, like this Asos Fringe Waistcoat ($24, originally $47), with '80s classics like these Ray-Bans ($195), and just a touch of turquoise like this Lucky Brand Multi Row Cuff ($72) to finish. Definitely too cool for school. Click the items above to shop the look.
The first thing I remember about Drop Dead Gorgeous — aside from the amazing Minnesota dialect — is the all-star cast. Pageant contestants Denise Richards, Amy Adams, Kirsten Dunst, and Brittany Murphy all vie for the crown in little Mount Rose. But take away the big hair and pageant garb, and it's straight up small-town, all-American. So, when channeling the beauty queens, try cutie kicks, like Keds Classics ($40), glittery jewels, like this Statement Flower Necklace ($12), and sunny-sweet dresses, like C&C's Eyelet Cap Sleeve Mini Dress ($148). Just smile pretty and wave — and click the items above to shop the look.
Come Fall, we suggest you grab a couple of essentials from Tibi's femme and fierce Fall collection. Designer Amy Smilovic, who just launched a rockin' new website last week, created a whimsical textural collection filled with furry faux coats, sweet skirts, leather elements, and perky prints perfect for the upcoming chill. This One-Shoulder Print Dress ($450) has an amazing snakeskin pattern, and these Leather Shorties ($585) are the perfect length: not too short, and not too tight.

When I am not feeling cute, I wear leggings to work out. I really love cropped leggings and a tank. Oh, and you cannot forget a good sports bra! It is important that the clothing is made with a dry fit material to help with sweat. My iPod is my favorite work out accessory. I recently started using the NXE iPod moisture-wicking sports sleeve to hold my iPod when I work out and it works great! It is super comfortable. When I work out outside, which is more often then not, I make sure I have on my Oakley Commit sunglasses, which are the ones I wear when I compete. On my workout wish list: the Chanel J12 Marine watch to help me keep time when doing drills.

It's back-to-school time here on GeekSugar, and although we won't be hitting the books ourselves, we've definitely been bitten by the shopping bug. Toting a laptop to class this semester (or just want a new bag for your machine this Fall)? Then consider picking up one of these chic-but-inexpensive bags to tote along. I'm particularly partial to the lush materials of the Kirra Laptop Bag ($30) and the Chevron Computer Briefcase ($26) that come with some wallet-friendly price tags. Of course, if you already have a bag and just need a stylish case, The Limited is offering up a Laptop Sleeve ($19) that is easy on the eyes and won't cost a fortune (even though it looks like it does). Keep your color palette neutral with the white Krria Front Laptop Bag ($33), the BDG Wool Laptop Sleeve ($28), and the brown Little Stud Laptop Bag ($50), all of which can work their way into your Fall and Winter wardrobes without a hitch. Want more details on all the products you see above? Click on the pics, and shop away! Who knew savings could be so stylish?
If you're feeling back to cool, then I've got another dose of inspired ensembles. This time, I'm channeling the nostalgia of one of my favorite film classics, Dirty Dancing. Oh, who could forget Baby and her coming-of-age quest in the Summer of '63? Once she meets Johnny it's buh-bye family fun, hello sexy dance parties. But aside from sultry Summer love, it's also a study in easy, retro-fied chic. Steal Baby's signature style with this Seven For All Mankind Oversize Shirt ($155), or do like Baby's big sis, Lisa, and try preppy pearls and a pretty party dress like this ModCloth Periwinkle Prance Dress ($99). Just remember — "nobody puts Baby in a corner!" Shop the style by clicking on the items.
Finnish design house Marimekko announced plans last week to expand its brand in the US market. The company will open a new showroom in Manhattan this month, and distribute more of its products to high-end department and specialty stores. Marimekko also has big plans to strengthen its 43-year-old relationship with Crate and Barrel. Come Oct. 14, a 1,775-square-foot Marimekko boutique will open inside Crate and Barrel's Soho, NY store. The shop-in-shop will sell Marimekko textiles, bedding and bath items, bags, accessories, and some apparel.
Until then, there's still plenty of the brand's delightfully lively products for you US citizens to shop! I've rounded up a few of my favorites above; just click each image to shop! If you're mad for the brand's bold prints, be sure to read my post on how to Marimekko your whole house.
The Beckham boys have the classics underfoot. The trio traded in their skateboarding looks for some basketball gear when they headed to a Los Angeles park over the weekend so Romeo, 7, could shoot some hoops. While he may be the son of one of the world's most famous soccer stars, Romeo was sporting sneakers designed by Michael Jordan ($72). The younger Beckham brothers — Brooklyn, 11, and Cruz, 5, weren't practicing their free throws, but they stayed in the game with shoes named for Kobe Bryant ($48). Does your family stick with a single brand when buying shoes?
If the Troop Beverly Hills utilitarian vibe isn't your flavor, kick start your back to cool style with a sassy '70s Charlie's Angels inspired look. Protecting the world one criminal at a time, Jill, Sabrina, and Kelly fought the bad guys and kicked major ass in their endless supply of groovy 'fits. Take note from these fearless gals and strut through campus in a pair of high-waist flared jeans, platform sandals — like these MICHAEL Michael Kors Astor Platforms ($160) — and a glitzy top. Or, brown nose your way to the top of the class in a sexy jumper or forever fresh wrap dress. We especially love the vintage modern print on this Diane von Furstenberg Julian Wrap Dress ($325). Charlie would be proud. Shop the look by clicking on the items!
