Summer Trend 2008: T-Strap Sandals

While some retailers would like to catapult us into fall, I'd rather enjoy the last days of summer. T-Strap sandals are one of my favorite trends this summer and come in a variety of styles. Not only are they super comfy but I also get to show off my fresh summer pedicure. Got your eyes on one of the beauties above? Click here to explore.

Celebrity Favorite: Herve Leger

Since Herve Leger's reappearance in 2007, his designs have been seen on some of the hottest celebrities in Hollywood.

Who is Herve Leger?

A french fashion designer who grew to notoriety in the early 90s. His departure from the loose, long shapes of that time garnered him a strong celebrity following. In his early years, he was an assistant to Karl Lagerfield, a designer for Chanel, an assistant at Lanvin and assistant to Diane von Furstenburg.

What makes Leger's designs so unique?

He uses a combination of Lycra and spandex based fabrics to pull the female frame into the ideal hourglass shape.

Which celebrity wore it best?

While some celebs can pull of his style better than others, his "bandage" style has definitely become a signature in Hollywood. My favorites are Cassie (yellow dress, top left) and Christina Milan (purple dress, top right).

So how much will this dress cost ME?

With many of his pieces priced well above $1000, this is one designer who has a more affluent clientele in mind.

Celebrity Sighting: Michelle Yeoh

Taken from a old file photo during the release of Memoirs of a Geisha, Michelle Yeoh looks radiant in her blue gown. I was highly disappointed in the Mummy 3 however, Michelle was a twinkling light in an otherwise lack luster film. It was so great to see her dual Jet in their fight scenes and that yellow gown she wore...magnificent! Want more info on her look? Click here

ME Favorites: God Save McQueen

Alexander McQueen : BRIDLE CHAIN BELT

Alexander McQueen has a whimsical approach to women's fashion. Most of his pieces look great on the red carpet but could rarely translate outside of Hollywood. However, this belt is a fantastic accessory which I could easily work into my wardrobe. I could use it to cinch my waist in a maxi dress or adorn one of my sweater dresses with it this fall. I love it!
