Jenny Red

When Jennifer Lopez's stylist posted a photo of her in this look, it was another reminder that she is in fact aging in reverse. I mean, could she look any better? I'm trying to fight the signs of aging as early as I can, but I still want to know what her secret is. She's flawless in a natural way. Her body is on fire. Basically, she is goals...

Oscars 2019

I don't know if it was because the sun finally came out or because the celebrities had the recent couture shows to pull from, but last night's red carpet was maybe one of my favorites. I was hoping and praying that someone would wear hot pink and to my surprise pink ended up being the color of the night. Everyone wore it from Julia Roberts to Angela Bassett, but nobody wore it quite as well as Crazy Rich Asians star Gemma Chan in this (or THE) Valentino couture gown I have been dreaming about for weeks. Gasp...

You know I've been color crushing on lilac lately, so to see Emilia Clarke in this sparkly Balmain number was such a breath of fresh air. Pale lilacs and pinks also reigned supreme last night. Kiki Layne's exaggerated back detail was another gasp-worthy moment. I mean... and let's not forget Kacey Musgrave's pink confection that looked sweet enough to eat.

I had to throw Charlize Theron in the mix in this dusty blue Dior, because let's face it, she's the Oscars red carpet queen. She pops up out of nowhere and looks effortless but over the top chic. She knows she should be there. Everyone else take note.

Other favorites of the night include Regina King in white Oscar de la Renta (we should call her Regina Queen because she really looked like a queen in that dress... perfection). And GAGA. Do I need to say more? The Tiffany diamond, the custom black McQueen gown, the gloves... girl knows how to show up. And I definitely watched her performance with Bradley Cooper two (or maybe 4) times. It was everything I had hoped it would be and more. I'll leave you with this... can we never have an Oscars host again? I found it to be so peacefully politic-free and focussed on what it should be focussed on... giving out awards to deserving people. 
What were your favorite moments?

Maisy

While I'm not a huge tv binge-watcher, this dreary weather has forced me indoors with little activity other than The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. Who's watching it? I watched the first two seasons in about a week and have been on the edge of my seat waiting for the next season to drop, though I think we have a while before that happens. What's not to love about a show with a female powerhouse as lead and a pre-Carrie Bradshaw closet to drool over. 
This is my interpretation of a 2019 version of Midge...

Liu

My final thoughts on the Golden Globes...
I want to take Lucy Liu's gown and make it into a sequin bomber for every day wear. I would wear it with distressed jeans, a plain white tee and booties. How can we make this happen?

Golden Girls

The Golden Globes are always an exciting event to watch because it kicks off red carpet season. You get an early look at what will be trending this spring. One thing I noticed was a handful of bold jewel tones but a lot of soft pastels, lots of pale pinks and neutrals. Softer fabrics and unfussy hair styles ruled supreme. It appears that feminine details and an over-all softer look are what we're going for and I couldn't be happier about it. And can we talk about Julia Roberts? I mean.... Queen.

Hallie

Do you dare to wear a graphic sweatshirt with a sequin skirt? Maybe for your office Christmas party? I think it's cute, has a little splash of sparkle and is conservative enough that your boss won't cringe. Not to mention these pumps... Meghan Markle wore them and I think they might just be the perfect pump.

Sussex

The Duchess of Sussex, aka Meghan Markle, continues to dazzle me with her understated but standout fashion choices. She stepped out this week in a pastel pink trench vest/dress that was every bit of classic perfection. It was a timeless choice that made waves and had every girl (myself included) googling "trench vest" looking for a suitable alternative to hers by Nonie (see it here). The Duke & Duchess were paying a visit to an exhibit honoring Nelson Mandela (see more about their visit here). What did you think of the look? If you are as big of a fan as me, check below for four great options at lower price points than hers that comes in around $1000.

Meghan & the Queen

Just a casual train ride and outing with the Queen. Can you imagine if this was your new normal? Meghan Markle is handling the transition effortlessly if you ask me. Her wardrobe is adjusting quite well, too. She emerged in another stunning Givenchy ensemble. See more here.

Royal Wedding

We're finally on the home stretch... the Royal Wedding is THIS
WEEK! I can hardly contain my excitement. I'm royally obsessed and will be one of those that's up in the middle of the night to watch all the coverage (starting at 3am CST). Who's getting up early to watch? With the digital world we live in, there will instantly be pictures available, but I want to see it live. Now, it's time to jet off to London (I wish!)...

2018 Met Gala

The annual Met Gala is something I look forward to each year. 
It's the debut of the new costume collection inside the Metropolitan Museum of Art. So, celebrities, designers, and the like show up dressed according to the theme. More or less, it's a very expensive costume party. This year's theme, Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination, raised some eyebrows (take a peak inside the museum here and don't miss this post highlighting the perfectly polished table settings). Putting all that aside, let's focus on the fashion and how it might have been one of my all time favorite red carpets. The theme lends itself to lavish golds and reds, heavy embroidery, over the top headpieces, and angelic dresses. I loved seeing
different designers' interpretation of the theme. See all the red carpet looks here. Don't miss my absolute favorite of the night, Hailee Steinfeld wearing Prabal Gurung.

White Hat

Check your coat and political views at the door... we need to talk about
the hat. The First Lady stepped out this week in a stunning Michael Kors suit with a crisp white hat. Talk about making a statement. It gave me a mix of Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman, a nod to Scandal (white hats), a little Princess Diana and a little Kate Middleton... all in all an 80's and 90's vibe. I was a little obsessed. What did you think?

Times Up

Nobody has been more of a warrior for women's rights lately
than Catt Sadler. She's been on the front lines of the Times Up movement, but is doing it with class and style. She sported this lovely lilac and black color blocked dress the other day while rallying the troops for equal pay. Go Catt go! 
Get the look:
2) wear this color blocked number and call it a day
4) pair all of the above with either this shoe or this one
5)  support other women!

Oscars 2018

Who watched the Oscars last night? What did you think?
Sticking to just fashion, I'll say the gowns did not disappoint. I was on the edge of my seat to see what Margot Robbie would wear, and her Chanel gown with beaded accents was worth the wait.
While there were others who (as I was hoping) wore flirty and
feminine gowns with tons of embellishments, there were those that
went more edgy. Lupita N'yongo, Gal Gadot, and Jennifer Lawrence
all opted for heavy metals... something I wasn't expecting. However,
we should all stop and drool over Gal Gadot's Tiffany & Co. necklace.

There were also surprising pops of color, specifically a bright blue.
Nicole Kidman and Jennifer Garner both donned the hue and it suited both of their skin tones perfectly. 

But of course I saved my favorite for last....
Can we stop and talk about Mira Sorvino in Romona Keveza? I mean.... I died a little. While I'm usually a fan of clean lines, neutral colors and not a lot of frill, this was the antithesis of that and I loved every bit of it. I want to live in this dress...

Q & A seven

Q: Will you be illustrating during the Oscars this weekend?

A: YES! The Oscars red carpet is hands down my favorite of the
year. The gowns are strategically chosen, the celebs perfectly poised,
the setting clean and crisp.... it's literally everything I could ask for as an illustrator. Who will be wearing what? Will there be tons of  color, big goofy gowns, or will it be more subdued with clean lines and neutral colors? If I had to guess, I'm putting my money on flirty and frilly details, féminine touches, light colors (I hoping at least one person shows up in lavender)... an overall nod to a fresh season. 
Tune in Sunday afternoon for the red carpet and keep your phone close...
I'll be blowing up instagram with some live illustrating. Who are you most excited to see Sunday?

Tonya

Let's put aside our thoughts and opinions on what happened
with Tonya Harding and focus, instead, on the lovely lady that plays her in I, Tonya... Margot Robbie stunned at last night's SAG Awards in this pale
pink gown with feather accents at the waist. Only she could pull off adding volume at the smallest portion of her waist. I loved it.

Suits

Is anyone else fascinated by Meghan Markle and Prince
Harry? Fascinated might be too strong of a word.... interested is more like it. I'm interested in everything they do, everything she wears, every detail about their upcoming nuptials (will anyone else be up in the middle of the night watching their ceremony, because I definitely will be). It doesn't hurt that she's been killing the coat game lately. She stepped out yesterday in this long overcoat, matching scarf and black wide-leg pants. Overall, completely chic and simple. But, I wonder... how does she take her coffee? Or does she nix it all together opting for tea instead? Any insight into this would be much appreciated.

Ms. Markle

Pretty as a princess she is. Who else is super excited for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle? I love all things pertaining to the Royal Family, so this was such a welcomed surprise yesterday morning. And, of course, we're all dying to have that coat. It's sold out, as expected, but rest easy... I found some great alternatives. Shop my white coat picks below:

Fabletics

NYFW just wrapped and I can't wait to break down the latest trends for you in the coming days. One thing that has been on the horizon that continued to make waves on the street style stars is metallics. Whether it's a bold accessory or a statement blouse, heavy metals are here to stay for fall. While athleisure also has major staying power, let's talk about actual workout gear. It's an area where you can still be on-trend while you sweat it out in the gym. Fabletics just released new pieces for fall and I'm dying over the pops of rose gold. So good. I can see throwing this crop top on with these pants and hitting the gym. Throw a jacket in for good measure on those cold mornings. It's the happiest medium of trendy metallics and comfy (and oh-so-slenderizing) workout gear. Consider it a win...

Drybar x BFP

I loved working with Drybar a while back on a blogger mailer with some of their new products. We created custom illustrations for all the heavy hitters including Leandra (aka, the Man Repeller), Aimee Song, Kimberley over @eatsleepwear, etc. etc. Below are a few of my favorites:


If you or your hair are looking drab, pop into your local Drybar for a quick pick me up! You won't be disappointed (and will probably walk out with a bag full of goodies you just couldn't live without). You can also shop their products online at Sephora and Nordstrom just to name a few!

Kourt

If there's one thing I spend money on, it's accessories. Everything from 
watches, sunglasses, bags, etc. etc... that's where my money goes. My wardrobe is pretty basic (black, white and grey is my color palette), and I mix it up with fun accessories (mostly in the same colors). I never leave home without a good pair of shades, so Quay has become my new best friend. (Consider this an unsponsored post; I'm just a huge advocate for the brand). They are highly durable, affordable, and on-trend. With the attainable price point, you can go for something on the trendy side without breaking the bank. My summer go-to has been the mirrored aviators. While I have an extensive collection of Ray-Bans in the same shape, the Quay version is lighter on my face which makes for better long-term wear. 
While I opted for the silver, this shape is available in multiple colors. Shop
my favorites by Quay (pronounced "key") below:

I've mentioned several times how much I am a fan of Drybar and all of
their products. This is another illustration we did a while back as part of

Giuliana Rancic x Brittany Fuson 2017

It's that time again.... time to reveal the latest collaboration with Giuliana Rancic! For this collection, we looked to California for inspiration. From the hiking through the Hollywood Hills to getting dressed to the nines with your glam squad, there's a design for everybody. When you think of California, one of the first things you think of is most likely Rodeo Drive. We had to come up with a design that captured that essence of shopping on Rodeo with your bestie (and admiring all the fancy cars as you pass). 
Getting to the true roots of Giuliana's lifestyle, we had to include a design that
also paid homage to how the two of us connected. A while back, I illustrated her 
and her glam squad. I took a shot in the dark and mailed the illustration (with a copy
for each member of her glam squad) to E! News with her name on it. Flash forward
a few months later, I saw it in the background of an E! News scene in her dressing
room. I knew she had received the prints, and a few months after that, the email
came from a PR company that was putting together an event for her new HSN 
denim line launch. They wanted me to be in LA within the following two weeks to live illustrate during the event, and the rest is history! So, this is really how it all began. 
One of my favorites from this collection is the outdoorsy girls taking a hike with the beloved pooch. Whether it's through the Hollywood Hills, along the coast of Malibu, or through your local park, get outside! 

And of course, two besties riding along the Santa Monica pier, which is summer goals if I've ever envisioned it. 

All of these designs are available exclusively on HSN and are on a short-sleeve
shirt that is a longer fit (more of a tunic length). Here are a few iPhone shots of me in them so you can get an idea of the fit.

Get them quick before they sell out (click here)! Each collection is printed in small quantities, so once they sell out, they're gone forever. For those asking about the travel series we did in December, the shirts are sold out, but the scarf and sweatshirts are still available in limited sizes. Grab one while you can! The sweatshirt is absolutely the softest material ever - you'll be living and sleeping in it.

Oscars 2017

If you didn't watch the Oscars last night, please tell me you have at least heard about the dramatic ending. Such an epic fail. 
But let's focus on the red carpet...I loved how Voila Davis and Ginnifer Goodwin both stepped out in bold red. Brie Larson's bold black velvet gown was breathtaking and seems to  be an emerging trend for fall (velvet - Busy Phillips also wore the trend). I love the unexpected ruffle and interested hemline. I was a big fan of this one. Janelle Monae is never one to fly under the radar and killed it in this over the top detailed black and white gown. I might have preferred it without the side panels, but it's the kind of look we've come to expect from her and I look forward to seeing what she's wearing. A true statement maker. 
White was a huge trend last night. From Priyanka Chopra in this structured
column gown from Ralph & Russo to Naomie Harris (who sadly I had never heard of) but my goodness, she is absolutely stunning. I love the simple sequins in such an interesting cut. Chrissy Teigen is also one who never disappoints and
looked oh-so-pretty in this white goddess gown. One of my favorite white gowns 
was worn by Darby Stanchfield (Abby for my Scandal watchers). Such a different dress that was truly breathtaking. 
Then there were the girls in gold. Winner Emma Stone looked age-appropriate
in this sleek flapper-inspired gown that was pretty, but it didn't make me swoon. 
Nicole Kidman also looked understated and like the true movie star she is, like
meh, this is my 15th Oscars, I'm going to be comfortable. She looks effortless as
per usual, it's really not fair. Jessica Biel also looked completed stunning in this
detailed gold, sequined gown with a bold accessory. I loved it. But did you see
her after party dress? I can't decide which one I love more. 
My two favorites were like breaths of fresh air when they appeared. First, 
my girl, Giuliana Rancic stunned in this periwinkle gown with an added cape. 
Nobody else on the carpet had on a similar color so it stood out in the best way. 
Truly truly stunning. (Speaking of fresh colors, Demi Lovato showed up to the 
after-parties in this beautiful lavender gown that makes my heart skip a beat. 
So pretty).
And then there was the princess of the night, Hailee Steinfeld (also in 
Ralph & Russo). The back was just as interesting as the front, it had so many
interested details, and the airiness of it was just etherial. I want to borrow this one and just twirl and prance around a castle. It's true princess perfection. Her outfit change was also well worth it donning another Ralph & Russo gown, this one a more sleek column gown with a dramatic train.

First Daughter

I couldn't get over not only Melania Trump's inauguration look, but
also Ivanka's. Again, let's set politics aside for a moment and appreciate
fashion at it's finest through the designs of Ralph Lauren (creator of Melania's
powder blue look), and Oscar de la Renta, the designer behind Ivanka's asymmetrical pant suit. I illustrated the former First Daughters four years ago (here), so it's only fitting to include our newest First Daughter and First Granddaughter...
