In case you haven't noticed, friendship bracelets are all the rage. And now you can get the high fashion version with Alexander McQueen's alternative friendship bracelet. This might be the best trickle up trend I've seen! The bracelet, decorated with all-over mini metal skulls, is ultra, ultra chic. And.....it's now on my wish list. #friendsforever
It's hard not to notice Elena Perminova's chic style. Couture Week just wrapped up in Paris and I am still obsessed with these shots of her in Giambattista Valli, Burberry and Ulyana Sergeenko. From Perminova's glam Instas to Tommy Ton's street chic images on Style.com, her style is inspiration du jour. The Russian model cum style icon always seems to strike the perfect balance with eye popping colors, of-the-moment trends and haute couture. Check her style on Instagram @lenaperminova
James Tupper on Good Day LA wearing a John Varvatos jacket and shirt; G-Star Raw jeans and tie
How do you style a celeb? It's not hard when the celebrity is James Tupper! He is the ultra handsome and charming Canadian actor from "Revenge," "Men in Trees," and "Grey's Anatomy." And... he has great taste in clothing. Needless to say, it was a lot of fun! I styled James for a photo shoot in November and then was asked to style him for several tv appearances to promote his film "Playing for Keeps." James wanted to have a cool GQ "rumpled and fun" look. What designers did he wear? John Varvatos, G-Star Raw and All Saints - brands that are not only stylish, but ultra cool. Here are some shots of him on "Good Day LA," "Extra," and "The Doctors," with his partner Anne Heche. Enjoy!

Last weekend I spotted musician Marnie Herald in Los Feliz while grabbing my morning Cup o' Joe. She was crossing the street with her cute dog George - aka The Kid. I had to stop her and take a quick pic of her chic Diesel cape and skinny jeans accessorized with worn in boots and a scarf. With style like that it's no surprise she is also a stylist. Marnie and friend Sima Kumar styled Daniel Day Lewis for the Golden Globes. Follow Marnie on Twitter or Instagram @marnieherald
Toasting the New Year requires a designer cocktail.
The McQueen at Pattern Bar in downtown Los Angeles is one of my favorites. It is mixology perfection. Hendricks Gin, elderflower and fresh passion fruit. Need I say more? If you are looking for a chic downtown hot spot, try Pattern Bar. It's a favorite Happy Hour aka "Fashionable Hour" haunt for LA's fashion set. I stopped by this week with my good friend Ravid Levy from eM Productions and ran into a cool crowd. The menu includes Haute Couture and Prêt-a-Porter cocktails such as The Balenciaga, The Chanel and The Valentino. And there are some tasty tapas which compliment the drinks. Here's a quick peek at the menu.
It's the New Year, so kick it off with the right attitude. What you think about you bring about, so why not imagine the best? Love this quote from inspirational speaker and author Marianne Williamson. I challenge you to imagine the most amazing thing that can happen this year.
