talbots’ spring ’11 campaign, featuring julianne moore

she. is. stunning.

contrary to popular belief, talbots actually makes some really nice things. in fact, i think their clothes are cuter than most of the stuff in ann taylor or loft…it’s just that no one really goes inside to see for themselves. hopefully, this will change that. i can’t think of anyone better who represents the elegance and ageless beauty that julianne moore embodies.

heck, i want to look like her. and shes older than my MOM.

The ads, shot in a greenhouse by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, reflect Moore’s relationship to the 60-year-old brand: “We have this lush, traditional setting, and Julianne is in the middle of it. She’s strong, confident, and very modern. And it’s very ethereal and sensual.” Moore’s classic but playful style, Smaldone says, is also a great fit for what he calls Talbots’ “tradition transformed” platform. “We want to hold on to the classic pieces, but make them relevant to a woman today,” he says. “We’re not trendy, but our clothes are current and modern.”

“tradition transformed.” i love it.

and the ads are so…editorial. they really look like gucci or something.

on my wishlist: mossimo pilar strappy wedges

i would really like these. they’re from target and only $30! the color is perfect for early spring all the way through late fall, although they sell them in black and nude too. and obviously, i am obsessed with wedges.

too bad i’m moving to a frigid climate where i will probably just have to wear uggs everyday. UGH.

glamour (march 2011): diane kruger

she is definitely in the top 5 of my best dressed list. always.

can you believe shes 34?!?!?

{in chanel jacket, daryl k tee, and j brand shorts}

On what her favorite look is: “A well-cut dress. It’s all about the cut. I love three-quarter sleeves. I definitely like it classic; less is more. The thing I despise most is vulgarity, and there’s a lot of that here [in L.A.].”

On her biggest fashion splurge: “The biggest fashion purchase I ever made I thought about for six years. I’m not kidding. All my life I wanted to own an Hermès Constance bag, and when I signed with Calvin Klein, I decided this was the time that I could afford it. I truly broke a sweat when I paid for it.”

On her boyfriend Joshua Jackson and his style: “We go shopping. But he likes it. I definitely wasn’t fond of these blue sneakers that he wore all the time for about a year and a half.”

On marrying and divorcing when she was younger: “Without sounding pessimistic, I learned that I don’t believe in marriage. I believe in a commitment that you make in your heart. There’s no paper that will make you stay.”

so about those bachelor fashion recaps…

sorrrrrrrrrrrrrrry.

many of you have been questioning my dedication to this weekly endeavor, and rightfully so. i’ll get back to business soon…hopefully next week?

in the meantime, check out the possessionista for all of your bachelor (and other tv) fashion fixes. she tells you what the girls were wearing and where you can snag it for yourself.

today, she has posted an interview with meghan, who got the boot last week. (she was the one that wore the pink d&g wedges the first night.) apparently, meghan used to be a marketing manager for d&g! no fair.

red carpet style: anne hathaway in marni

not what we’re used to seeing from her, but i LOVE it. this outfit is everywhere: mixing prints, combining brown, black AND navy, high waisted cropped pants with a cropped sweater, stripes, and ruffles…but she still looks awesome.
