Celebrity Oops! of the Day

Hello All! Today I'm introducing a new feature called Celebrity Oops! First up is actress Anika Noni Rose, who showed up to Elton John’s 19th Annual AIDS Foundation Academy Awards viewing party wearing this:

The gown is lovely and complements her skin well, but it looks like she took a cue from Dick Cheney and shot Big Bird. Someone needs to call PETA and alert the press! Not to mention that travesty of a handbag she's carrying. Tsk, tsk! Better luck next time, Ms. Rose.

Vivid Look of the Day: Nicki Minaj

Young Money's first lady, Nicki Minaj toned her look down and wore this fun ensemble for a performance during All Star weekend. I love the combination of the gray blazer and the printed leggings, and the baby blue patent platforms are to die for. What do you think of her look?

Q&A with Diane Von Furstenberg

Hollywood stylist, Rachel Zoe recently sat down with iconic designer Diane Von Furstenberg for a few questions. They discussed Furstenberg's inspiration growing up and the transformation of the DVF woman. Take a look!

RZ: For as long as the fashion world can remember, you have been the ultimate figure of empowerment for women everywhere with your eponymous line, Diane Von Furstenberg. Growing up, who were the people who inspired you?
My mother was and has been the most influential inspiration in my life, mostly because she taught me that 'fear is not an option'.

RZ: What started with your first iconic wrap dress in the '70s is now a global luxury your own words, how has the DVF woman changed from then to now? Where do you see her going next?
DVF: The DVF woman has always been very individual. She's always in the driver's, seductive, and above all confident. When I first started my career it was the time of women's liberation...all was ahead of us!! But women are women and somehow not much has changed.

RZ: How do you prepare for the insanity that is New York Fashion Week? What is your favorite part?
DVF: I usually prepare by doing a lot of yoga. Fashion shows are so useful because they force you to edit and to present a collection in a concise way. It's a presentation to the press and to the stores that sell your is so exciting!!!

RZ: Tell me something that you are coveting for spring!
DVF: The 'Harper' is our new bag shape for Spring...I love it!!! It's extremely versatile and comes in a variety of colors! It just became available on

RZ: I have personally looked up to you throughout my entire career, and now many of my Zoe Report readers do too. What advice would you give to any of them who are planning for a profession in the fashion industry?
DVF: Be confident!! The industry is growing and new, young talent is emerging, but fashion will always remain a mysterious reflects the contemporary period you live in, the mood of the time, the way people want to project themselves, it's ever-evolving...

Vivid Look of the Day: Rihanna

Our favorite good girl gone bad decided to keep our interest peeked by wearing a multi-colored Christian Dior gown to the 2011 Birt Awards. The bustier dress dress wowed on the red carpet with its tiered  turquoise bottom and lime green sash, and I must admit I'm loving it!


Rihanna rarely disappoints, and this dress is no exception. What do you think of her look?

Spring/Summer Trend: Polka Dots

Polka dots are all over the runways this season. From Max Mara to 3.1 Phillip Lim, polka dots are going to be a staple for warm days ahead. The bold print can add a hint of fun to any outfit or you can rock the print from head to toe.

Max Mara


3.1 Phillip Lim
Though the polka dot trend is hot on it's own, I especially like the thought of mixing dotted prints as Blair from Atlantic-Pacific did. The look is fresh and daring, without looking like a clown.
