MMW: August 17th

Jennifer Lawrence celebrated her 25th birthday over the weekend and I’m celebrating the evolution of her style as MMW today. The screen siren is known for doing her own thing, and we love her for it. Now there’s even more to love from J-Law as she shows us a whole new fashion-forward side. Her once simple and slightly boho style has recently transformed into an edgy and sophisticated attitude. Perhaps spending time in NYC has spurred on all these form-fitting silhouettes and stylish crop tops? Whatever the reason, her new looks are ever in her favor.

MMW: August 10th

ReeseWitherspoonMMWY’all heard of Reese Witherspoon’s lifestyle brand Draper James? Well ” charm and grace” may be their motto but it’s also adorable and stylish. It’s about time the stylish actress launched a brand of her own, which debuted in the Spring, and about time I featured her as MMW. The southern sweetheart turned SoCal transplant always brings a whole new twist to LA style with her Tennessee roots. Whether she’s wearing gingham tops with boyfriend jeans, or pearls (a personal fave) and a boho hat, Reese makes laid-back lady-like. Southern charm never looked so effortless, take a tip from Reese and incorporate elegant details into your everyday look for a simple touch of polish.

MelissaMcCarthyMMW

This comedienne’s got more than jokes, she’s got Style. Melissa McCarthy isn’t as well known for her fashion choices as she is for her acting, but that might change with the upcoming launch of her clothing line next month. The actress actually studied textiles before moving to NYC with friend Brian Atwood (yup, designer Brian Atwood), where she forewent finishing at FIT to pursue stand-up. Over 20 years later her designer dreams are coming true and we finally get to see a rather over-shadowed side to Melissa. To say her Style is bold is an understatement. She’s fond of trends and patterns, which she keeps sophisticated by opting for monochromatic palettes and muted colors. From sneaker wedges to pussy bows, her Style is a healthy mix of classic and edgy. Take a tip from Melissa and mix it up a bit– even if you end up laughing at yourself, fashion is all about having fun.

NicoleRichieKimonoMMW

The reality TV star turned fashion mogul has come a long way since her days on The Simple Life. Still as hilarious but a little more grown up, Nicole Richie’s personality is as spunky as her Style. I like to think of her style as bad-ass boho, a great mix of vintage silhouettes with rocker details, not unlike her line House of Harlow. She’s by far the only person I have ever seen rock the lavender hair trend if that’s any indication of her soft yet outspoken style — and that’s no easy feat. Also a mom, Nicole sets the bar high for effortless style while always looking comfy and confident in anything she wears. Maybe her life has never been simple, but take a tip from Nicole (who’s never liked jeans) and stick to simple items you know you can wear all day for lasting comfort and confidence.

CaitlynJennerMMW

Caitlyn Jenner has been on everyone’s lips lately, but public appearances of the star have been few and far between. After wowing at the ESPY awards with a heartfelt speech and stunning Versace gown last week, America couldn’t wait to see more of the stylish siren. Even after just a few sightings, Caitlyn’s style has already become more apparent. A mixture of simple and elegant silhouettes with tasteful touches of skin, the fashionista’s style has been carefully curated to highlight her athletic physique while celebrating her newfound femininity. You go, girl!

EllenDegeneresFashionIconMMW

On the heels of the launch of her eponymous lifestyle brand, this Monday’s Most Wanted goes to Ellen Degeneres.  The funny lady may not be the most talked about fashionista in Hollywood, but her inclination for menswear sure makes her stand out. Often spotted in blazers and button-ups, she relies on the little things like great silhouettes, cool textures and patterns, and even sneakers to make menswear her own– and she does a helluva better job than a lot of men by the way. Her clothing line (available online at ED by Ellen), like her work, talk of life messages like “love” and “kindness” through simple designs. Having fun with fashion and being true to herself are integral to her unique Style, making her a true role model as well as an icon.

VictoriaBeckhamMondayMostWanted

In honor of her Vogue Australia cover hitting stands and her 16th anniversary with hubby David Beckham over the weekend, Victoria Beckham is this week’s MMW. The “Posh” nickname she earned with the Spice Girls back in the 90’s still rings true with the Style Icon today. Now an international business woman, fashion designer, and mum of 4, Victoria is perhaps best known for her chic Style. To achieve “Posh” status, find a balance between classic and fashion-forward the way Victoria does. Simple silhouettes in bold colors with edgy details are all you need to spice up your wardrobe!
