Ashlee Simpson : ‘BCBG’ Max Azria Front Row !

Taking a break from husband Pete Wentz and son Bronx, Ashlee Simpson showed up at the BCBGMaxazria show looking all too chic.

She paired her flared jeans with an edgy cropped leather jacket and leopard pumps. She finished off her look with a vintage Chanel pearl necklace.

Although she looked ultra hip, our attention was drawn towards her radiant two-toned locks.

“I think he is so talented. He really knows how to fit a woman’s body,” Ashlee told reporters at the show. “And I think it’s youthful and sexy at the same time. Any woman looks great in it, and that’s what he’s talented at, making all shapes and sizes look beautiful.”

Busy with her career and being a mom to baby Bronx, Ashlee doesn’t have to much time to pamper herself or to devote to getting ready in the morning!

“I just love to throw things on. I’m still a ballet flats and jeans kind of girl,” the singer said. “I love vintage wear as well. I to throw on a beautiful dress every now and then, who doesn’t like to get dressed up so that’s always nice.”

Ashlee, along with her hubby Pete Wentz, supported big sister Jessica Simpson early this week at her jeanswear collection debut.

Jessica Simpson : Show Me Your Blues !

Last night Jessica Simpson showed off her Spring 2011 denim line on her closest friends and family!

The show featured 12 of her girlfriends strutting their stuff in head-to-toe Jessica Simpson Collection looks including denim dresses, chic cuffed shorts and sleek skinnies, plus the five core denim styles.

The event was DJ’ed by brother-in-law Pete Wentz, and we also spied Simpson’s new boyfriend Eric Johnson there!

“Everyone wears denim,” Simpson told us. “It’s amazing to have denim for every size and personality. Like my sister, she’d never wear a denim shirt, but when she paired it with a ruffled mini, she totally rocked it up a bit.”

The celebrity designer took a natural approach, dressing her friends in looks that fit their personal style best.

“My look is very…girl-next door, plus my favorite color is yellow,” BFF CaCee Cobb said of her sweet green-and-yellow bustier. And sister Ashlee loves her Jessica Simpson shoes–”I wear them all the time!” she told us of her black platforms.

Style Weekly : Two-Toned Hair Locks

From anti-aging haircare to the perfect hair cut, Hollywood divas are always in on the latest ways to have healthy, youthful-looking locks.

And now a hair color effect called ombre is steadily becoming a celebrity and city girl favorite. “Ombre” literally means gradation in French, which refers to the dark-to-light fade of color that is used in the technique. Instead of color that starts at the root, darker roots blend into a lightened mid-shaft and end.

It’s a beachier, more natural looking version of the enduring “visible root” trend.

“I think it speaks to the overall organic and sustainable trend going on right now. No one wants to spend all of their time in the salon anymore, and this look means longer time between visits because it’s so natural-looking. There’s no color line of demarcation at your roots,” says Dimitrios Tsioumas, creative color director of New York and Boston’s Mizu salons, where colorists perform the effect.

The term was taken from the fashion world, where the ombre style of diffusing color is used for fabric, and is most often seen in kimonos.

“In the hair industry, we like to translate what we see in the fashion industry into hair. We’ve seen many designers showcase the ombre effect in their collections. We’re making it more natural and softer to fit into our current lifestyles,” adds Tsioumas.


As we told you last season, starlets like Ashlee Simpson are bucking conventional hair colour for the two-toned effect. The best way to achieve this look, says veteran colourist Douglas Timleck of Salvatore Leonetti Salon in Toronto, is to use a highlighting method called balayage. Instead of the usual foils or cap, “it’s hair painting that starts from the roots or lower down the strands.”


Timleck stresses that if done in a “softer, more natural method, a lot of women can carry off this look well.” Rachel Bilson’s style, for example, shows off subtle gradations on beachy highlights.

This hairstyle “works very well for younger people with a strong sense of themselves and their fashion direction,” say Timleck. Drew Barrymore’s dark crown and peroxide-dipped tips are extremely directional.

We also adore Nicole Richie’s warm iteration, which was created by celeb-fave George Papanikolas of the Andy Lecompte Salon in West Hollywood. Papanikolas first took Richie’s hair several shades darker to a medium light brown, and then used balayage technique to add highlights, starting at her natural center part. Using bleach, he painted golden blonde v-shaped tips on the ends of her hair. Then, to graduate the color, he went through her hair in big horizontal sections, backcombing each one before applying bleach in an arrow shape to the ends of the hair.

Another essential to consider about this style is the use of complementary tones. Leighton Meester’s bleached out waves are blended perfectly into her colour. Timleck says “it’s a must.”

Papanikolas applied a similar regime for Shanae Grimes’ shoulder-length locks. First he gave her balayage highlights to add progressively lighter color to her hair, followed by a round of bleach at the tips to emphasize the contrast.

Lindsay Lohan also loves keeping her ends light and roots darker. Lilo looks super hot in this amazing hair color.

Ashlee Simpson & Pete Wents : Pool Party ‘Casual’

Making the most of their weekend, Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz were spotted attending a Hawaiian themed pool party at Hancock Park yesterday (August 29).

The “Pieces of Me” songstress and her Fall Out Boy bassist hubby both looked to be in good spirits as they arrived at the luau-style soiree.

And at some point during the shindig, Ashlee changed her clothes, as she emerged wearing a totally different outfit and shoes than when she got there.

Later on in the evening, Pete took to his Twitter account to show some love to Emmy Awards host Jimmy Fallon. He tweeted, “@jimmyfallon nice job- i never watch the emmys and you did amazing.”

Style Weekly : Celebs Heart ‘Hippie Style’

mischa_hippie_1

Hippies were all about peace and love in the 1970s. They were fun-loving, war-hating, drug dealing sweethearts that eventually became CEOs of the major corporations that they despised. Somewhere in the magic of the 70s, hippies developed their own brand of fashion. It was a convenience, easy style that still inspires two generations later.

If you weren’t around in the 70s, you may only be relying on old photos, television, or other people’s memories to understand hippie fashion. Comfort was the primary emphasis for hippie fashion. They weren’t interested in very structured looks. Their clothing and appearance was very free-flowing and open. Of course, hippies were also counter-culture. They sought to do what was different from mainstream society. Hippies would never have worn a suit and tie. They would never cut their hair. They were peaceful, but dogmatic rebels.

Women wear bell bottom jeans with ironed on patches. If you want to look more feminine, wear a long, flowing dress, or a peasant skirt. Hippie women loved bohemian clothes, especially the peasant blouses and skirts with printed designs on them. Sometimes, hippies wore mini-skirts or mini-dresses.

Hippie women looked similar to men with long, straight hair. They would add freshly picked flowers to their hair. Some hippie women would take several daisies, or similar flowers, are string them together, creating a band. They would then wear the flower band around their hair. Fabric head bands were also popular, along with head scarves.

Hippies always wore sandals or flip flops whenever possible, and in the winter, they wore boots. Women wore boots also, with their dresses. Women never wore high heels. Make sure you wear the flattest shoes possible to carry off this look. Always get into the easy-going spirit whenever you dress like a hippie, because that’s the most important part of the equation.
