Kourtney K's Blog: I Adore: Adriana Castro Modish Clutch

One of my recent obsessions is my Adriana Castro Modish clutch. It is unbleached croc and absolutely stunning. Such a fashion piece! This clutch actually won the Independent Handbag Designer Audience Fan Favorite Award in NYC in June.

I met the designer Adriana Castro in Miami! Her work is timeless and chic. I also love the modern lines of the clutch. The size is perfection too, it’s definitely an evening bag, but I love that it is oversized, allowing you to still have everything you need…cell phone, lip gloss, camera, an ID, and some cash…good to go! I wore the clutch to Khloe’s 25th birthday celebration last month in Las Vegas! My shoes are Christian Louboutin.

Adriana Castro even talked about me wearing the clutch on her blog. She said “Besides being beautiful, they are so sweet and so down to earth. I am a big fan of their work.”

Clearly I am a big fan of your work too, Adriana!!

Monica Rose Blog: New Nail Polish Trends For Fall

There is one thing my clients ask me once a week and that is "what color should I paint my nails?"
It is actually important that their nails coordinate with the wardrobe choices we have planned for the week.
I was into hot pink a few months back but after previewing the FAB clothing that is coming out for fall, I can't help but to think ahead. These are some great new nail polish trends to look out for.
It's all about metallic shades, dip-dyed tips and matte nail polish. Just remember to skip the top coat!

On nails: OPI Matte Nail Lacquer in Russian Navy, $8.50. Also try: Knock Out Cosmetics Flatte Nail Polish in OX, $19.

Monica Rose Blog: Kim Kardashian at the Pepsi Bullrun launch party held at Soho House

I was inspired by the photo below, when I created Kim's look.

I wanted to go with a sophisticated chic look for Kim's event in NYC. I found this amazing Proenza Schouler skirt at Intermix. I love how this skirt accentuates Kim's small waist and zipper detail on the pockets give this ensemble edge. Her blouse is Givenchy and the detail on the sleeves adds a interesting touch. I wanted a pop of color to her outfit so I added her turquoise Crocodile Wrap Clutch by Julliette Jake. It's one of my favorite pieces right now. Kim's shoes are the "Lucette" by Christian Loboutin.

Nicole Richie's Blog: Nicole Richie in Vivi, September 2009

Nicole Richie appears in the September issue of Vivi magazine.
Back in June Nicole twitted about her photoshoot with the Japanese magazine Vivi.

Nicole Richie's Blog: Nicole, Harlow and Joel in Santa Monica

A happy Nicole Richie was spotted with her curly cutie Harlow and her boyfriend Joel Madden strolling through Santa Monica, California, after breakfast on Sunday, July 19.
Always a fan of the maxi dress, the mom-to-be chose a long, flowy frock and paired with flat shoes and her vintage Dior sunglasses.

Nicole Richie's Blog: Mischa Barton's lifestyle ruined her friendship with Nicole Richie

Mischa Barton's behavior – partying and reported drug and alcohol use – over the past two years has cost her friendships with close pals, including Nicole Richie, a source tells PEOPLE.
"In the last few years, her dark side has really come out," says the source, who is close to both Richie and Barton. "Her friends, like Nicole, want to be supportive but they really can't be around her too much. She's too volatile."
"It makes us sad, but we're also like, 'Pull it together and get help already,'" adds the source.
Barton, who was placed under psychiatric hold after calling police with a health problem July 15, has been dealing with personal issues, according to another source, a close friend of Barton's, who says the actress "alienated herself from a lot of her friends."
Estrangement Begins in 2007
When did Richie and The O.C. star drift apart? Sources say the former friends never had "a falling out" but point to a mutual pal's Memorial Day barbeque in 2007 where Barton fell ill and was taken to the hospital.
"Most of her Hollywood friends have distanced themselves from her [since that party]," says a third source. "After that happened, her friends thought it would be a wake-up call, but it wasn't."
Barton's friendship with Richie changed especially when the reality TV star started a family with Joel Madden.
"Nicole is focused on motherhood and her family," adds the source close to Richie and Barton. "[She] considers [Mischa] a dear friend but she's also a mother who can't be around too much negative, unsafe behavior. Mischa is one of the reasons that Nicole is mostly with her other mom friends these days, not the party girls."

style shout-out: Eva Mendes' Italian Royalty Look

Eva Mendes may be Cuban-American, but for the past week she's been an Italian princess. The actress has been working as a juror at the 2009 Giffoni Film Festival—she's also being presented an award. And this weekend, she frolicked around Portifino, Italy with two of her favorite designers, Stefano Gabbana (left) and Domenico Dolce (right). The trio looked as if they were shooting an editorial spread for Italian Vogue, what with their coordinating blue-and-white ensembles that screamed summer: an eyelet Dolce & Gabbana dress for her and breezy button-downs for the boys. La vita bella, indeed.
