    At a FOX promo event, Zooey looked pretty in a white peplum fit and flare dress, pointy tweed flats and a black chain strap bag.

    We had instant outfit envy when we spotted Zooey in this gorgeous green cap sleeve retro-inspired dress.

    Zooey had a Marilyn Monroe moment in a pretty little white dress featuring zipper detail. As usual, she kept things retro with fishnet stockings and her signature swoop bangs.

    The actress can add fashion designer to her resume now after her collaboration with Tommy Hilfiger. The line featured a range of vintage-inspired pieces like this patterned dress Zooey sported to the launch event.

    In a red-hot midi fit and flare dress and black pumps, Zooey looked like the vintage fashion icon we know her to be. She accessorized with a matching clutch and swept her hair into a side braid to complete the look.

    Did you know Zooey sings too? The She & Him singer hit the 2012 Billboard Music Awards in a stunning bejeweled dress featuring a retro neckline. Of course, she paired it with her favorite black tights.

    8) Pink kind of day

    We're going way back to 2009 for this look where Zooey looked darling in a pink cap sleeve dress. The all-black accessory palette and Zooey's pretty wavy half updo all came together for one heck of a vintage look.

    9) Golden Globes gal

    Zooey pulled out all the stops for FOX's post-Golden Globes party this year, arriving in an embellished crop top dress with loads of flirty tulle on the skirt. The fashionista even matched her shoes to the dress, opting for beaded beauties.

    10) Stripes say it all

    At a New Girl screening, Zooey went a little bit modern, a little bit retro in a black crop top and striped A-line skirt. Black tights and pumps and her go-to curls/bangs combo finished the look.

    We're all for a fun hair accessory and own quite a few bobby pins and headbands ourselves, but these oversized bows kind of resemble donkey ears to us.

    2. Colored eyebrows

    Eyebrow grooming is an art, and it's enough work already without having to paint on colored brows. While cool for the runway, we kind of think people would look at us like something from How The Grinch Stole Christmas if we stepped out in public like this.

    3. Painful hairstyles

    Fashion is pain (sometimes) but we're not interested in suffering when it comes to our hairstyles. This studded ponytail looks a wee bit uncomfortable, if you ask us.

    4. Bold eyes and lips

    When worn alone, a bold eyeshadow or lip color can really make your features pop. But together? It's a recipe for makeup overload.

    Confession: We're not sure what this is supposed to be exactly but putting tape on your part and giant Xs over your mouth? That's a beauty faux pas, and kinda scary.

    7. Rapunzel hair

    If we walked out of the house with part of our hair all wet and sloppy and the rest of it looking fabulous, we'd likely get a few stares. Just saying.

    Eager to recreate it, we turned to Fernando Salas, creator of White Sands Hair Care, to get the step-by-step tips for doing just that. Have fun styling, ladies!

    Get the look

    "Bella's look is playful with a sultry peekaboo feel thanks to her side sweeping layers. It is a perfect example of using your haircut to play up volume and movement. The great news is you can recreate this look in a few easy steps and without a curling iron!" Fernando says.

    1. To begin, try a pin curl set to create large barrel waves. Working with slightly damp hair, work in a heat protectant, brush through and loosely gather your hair into a ponytail. It is best secured near the crown of your head. Use a loose tie like a soft cotton scrunchie to ensure you do not create a dent.
    2. Taking a 2-inch section (the larger the section, the looser the wave), wrap this hair around 2 fingers to create a curl, using a large bobby pin to secure at the base of the ponytail. Repeat until entire head is complete. The end result will look like a looped bun.
    3. Direct the heat of your blow dryer on the set for 4 to 5 minutes and let cool. This is a great time to do your makeup and get dressed.
    4. Next, take out each curl and the elastic, using a wide tooth comb to loosely break up the curls.
    5. To finish, mist White Sands Liquid Texture Firm Hold Styling Spray at the root for instant lift. To apply, simply section hair the opposite way you plan to wear this deep side part. If you want to go to the left, try a deep side part to the right when applying the spray. This way, when you flip your hair back and over, it will have more volume.
    6. To seal the style, finish off with a flexible hold, shine enhancing hairspray like White Sands Infinity.

    One of my favorite Fashion Week spectacles is the loitering that happens outside of Lincoln Center. Some are there to attend the shows, some are there in passing or on a quick break. Some stop by to see which celebrities they can spot coming and going.

    Others, they are there to show off their own personal style. While some girls not-so-subtly wait for someone to photograph them, others are just caught on their way in or out of the fashion mayhem.

    Call it self-righteous or call them show-offs or wannabes but they create an entirely new form of the runway and I thoroughly enjoy the people-watching allure of Fashion Week.

    "Is this a hot new trend?" I asked myself. Looks like it. The edgy 'do isn't exactly anything new, but the popularity of the look certainly is, and it's gaining some traction. Many celebs have jumped on the half-shaved hair trend, and I'm sure this is just the beginning.

    Shaved head collage

    There's hair chameleon Demi Lovato, who's currently rocking her signature brunette locks in a half-shaved style, but first dipped her toes into the trend when her locks were hot pink this spring.

    Then there's Rosario Dawson, who set the beauty community on fire when she debuted her half-shaved 'do this May. Some celebs take the plunge for a role, like The Hunger Games: Mockingjay star Natalie Dormer, and others opt for a big ticket event to debut their new look, like Malin Akerman did just last month at the Emmys after party.

    Whether you love or hate the half-shaved hair trend, you've got to give these ladies credit for taking a beauty risk and owning their individuality. Because that's really all beauty is about — taking risks — right? If these bold beauties are inspiring you to shave your hair too, there are a few things to consider before pulling the trigger. I turned to Charles Baker Strahan, Herbal Essences celebrity stylist, to get some guidance on rocking this daring 'do, so you can be a total fashion do.

    Half-shaved hair dos and don'ts

    Do consider the re-growth process: "Eventually, you will have to cut the rest of your hair to meet wherever your hair is in the re-growth process once you're over the shaved look," Charles says. "If you want to maintain a shorter style, then this can work really well; trying to grow your hair back to one length won't be as difficult. However, if you eventually want to try and grow your hair longer, it will take a lot longer to get there from such a drastic style and the re-growth process will be more challenging."

    Don't rush into it: "Before taking the plunge, you should look a bit further out as to what you ultimately want your style to be," Charles says. "If you're concerned about growing your hair back or maintaining a certain length, then I'd definitely make sure you think about that before you go for it!"

    Do have fun with it: "This look is fun — if you're young and experimenting with your look and who you are, then this is a great, 'you only live once' kind of style. I always encourage girls to play and have fun with their hair to show off who they are!" Charles says.

    It's an experience to see a delicate floral train (my date taught me that word) flowing behind a model (my favorite look of the show: that magical floral gown below) against the raw (if not sloppy) chords of The Ramones and other punk artists.

    Like punk music, the ultimate musical exploration into simplicity with its three-chord style and garage aura production standard, Katie’s designs are straightforward pieces that don't overwhelm the eye, but invite the eye to follow their movement. The looks range from retro ('70s/'80s) princesses to dark queens and pastel fairies. Kati is not afraid to use any color; this year included floral prints and colors, coastal/ocean palettes and black patterns.

    Kati's designs somehow mimic classic lines only achievable in fantasy; think of the illogical curves of Jessica Rabbit or the subtle but architectural employment of shadows unique to vintage Film Noir scenes. Indeed, Joan Fontaine or Barbara Stanwyck could sparkle in any of these gowns that, like the characters they portrayed, said so much without an actual spoken word.

    This year crystal punctuated Stern's looks: clasps, straps, belts. This crystal blended effortlessly into each design (I imagine that it's easy to get carried away with crystal), never overdone. The looks had an uncanny ability to pick up wind currents out of dead air like sailboat sails or autumn leaves. The effect is a hypnotic, spectral flow through Kati's chosen fabrics, while remaining true to the soft lines of the model's curves.

    My date, hardly easy to impress, was taken aback by just about every look, exclaiming words like "gorgeous," and "amazing." She was particularly taken by the high necklines on some of the Venexiana looks, this one being her absolute favorite:

    But it's what Venexiana's looks communicate that impresses me. I once was told by a girlfriend that she had "gone to Steve Madden because she was in a bad mood." Feeling beautiful (inside and out) helped this girl feel better. I tried to understand this rationale in my male mind: Perhaps it's similar to how I feel better when I play my favorite guitar. Venexiana's gowns have that power to lift a person's spirits.

    At formal events, many men are guilty of having an internal conversation/competition: "my date is the sexiest, smartest, prettiest one here." I imagine any Venexiana gown would help make that argument as the gowns at the spring show gave the models a quality of walking on air.

    Since that girlfriend's comments about shoes, I've noticed moments when women feel beautiful. They are small but inspiring: getting ready for a wedding in a hotel room and watching her turn in a dress in the mirror, satisfied. I even see it in my 6- and 7-year-old nieces who give a dress an approving swirl when they put it on for the first time. At its core, in my opinion, Venexiana helps a woman feel beautiful.

    Venexiana looks make a statement at any formal event. Able to portray feminine strength and elegance, the looks still pay homage to that youthful exuberance of wearing a gown for the first time.

    Whether you plan to wear a Venexiana gown, or just want to look, I suggest you do so. The gowns are art. And in this case, that art is just as fun to look at as it is to wear.

    Recently the company came under fire for a T-shirt that read "Eat Less," seemingly promoting anorexia. Then who can forget their sweatshirt with a repeating pattern saying "Depression," which minimized mental illness and all the uproar over the cultural appropriation of Native American patterns placed on items like panties?

    But Urban Outfitters have outdone themselves now with a blood-spattered Kent State sweatshirt. The shirt appears to be an homage to the murder of four Kent State students by police officers during a Vietnam War protest in 1970. While the historical reference may seem esoteric in light of the recent spate of school shootings, people are understandably disgusted.

    However, Urban Outfitters thinks you're just misunderstanding them. In a recent sorry-not-sorry press release they said, "There is no blood on this shirt nor has this item been altered in any way. The red stains are discoloration from the original shade of the shirt and the holes are from natural wear and fray." Oh really?

    It's hard to see what else the shirt would have been referencing as Kent State, a widely respected school, hasn't made headlines for much since then. While some think this is just another instance of the retailer trying to be provocative (and succeeding) others are asking if this is more evidence that fast fashion has become too fast for its own good. With the shooting 44 years in the past, it's a fair bet that most employees and those responsible for choosing the item are too young to even remember it.

    American Apparel made a similar gaffe last year when a young staffer tweeted a "cool pic" of "smoke and clouds." It turned out to be an image of the Challenger shuttle exploding, capturing the instant that seven people were killed in the tragic accident. The image was quickly pulled and the company apologized, but is that enough? It seems like there are more and more of these types of incidents and a lot of it can be chalked up to the rush to the top of the fashion pile that makes companies overlook little details like plagiarism, copyright violations, offensive statements and pictures and... blood spatter.

    The backlash has been swift and, in true internet style, both cheeky and severe. One person tweeted, "Hey @UrbanOutfitters, when will the Sandy Hook shirts be available? And will there be child sizes?"

    Tweet about Urban Outfitters Kent State sweatshirt

    The store eventually apologized, saying, "It was never our intention to allude to the tragic events that took place at Kent State in 1970 and we are extremely saddened that this item was perceived as such" and pulled the shirt — but not before it sold out.

    Now that Pantone has named sangria one of fall's hottest color trends, we'd like to know how to work it into our wardrobe without any fashion faux pas, so we consulted costume designer Soyon An.

    Maroon and oxblood (sangria's brethren) have been trending on fall runways for years, so it's no big surprise that sangria is itching for its moment in the spotlight. Soyon says "olive skin tones with darker hair" are ideal matches for the color, but that bold hair colors in general (think pinks and other loud hues) will create a funky, cool pairing with the deep color.

    We all know fashion rules were meant to be broken though, so regardless of your skin tone or hair color, the key to working the sangria trend is your styling. "If it's a dress, accessorize well. If it's a top, rock it with some black skinny jeans. If it's pants, pair it with a soft blouse, it'll be hot!" Soyon says.

    Finding the right colors to pair your sangria style with is also key. Go-to neutrals like black, cream and charcoal gray play nicely with sangria, but so do unexpected hues like forest green and pink, Soyon notes.

    "Don't be afraid! Sangria is the new black! Wear your sangria piece as if it were black and pair with anything you would wear with your black clothes."

    Whether you're ready for it or not, we'll definitely be seeing a lot more sangria this season. And you know what? We'll raise a glass to that.

    I was driving the speed limit down Ventura Boulevard when I turned the corner and slammed on my brakes just inches away from a cute little blogger who looked like she was photographing her #OOTD. If it weren't for her shiny snakeskin Givenchy crossover, I'm pretty sure she (and the bag) would have been roadkill.

    What's worse is that fashion-obsessed girl could have easily been me. No, I'm not a blogger, but I do feel that I too am kind of gangsta when it comes to glam (a glamsta?). As I was driving away from the stylish survivor, I thought about the fact that I take that risk of getting run over every single day that I stand on my tiny, sharp-angled road in front of my house at peak traffic hour to take a sexy #OOTD for my Instagram. (BTW, can someone please tell me why the hell rush hour is the same time as "magic" hour?) Needless to say, I have no shame when it comes to mai style game.

    As a television personality and style expert, I'm always dishing fashion advice and arguing with women about why they should replace that God-awful bra. But I've been a devoted fan of SheKnows and I enjoy reading the comments as much as I love reading the articles. I'm pretty sure it's because I feel like I have a lot in common with women out there: I want to dream, I want to live life with purpose and I want to look damn good doing it.

    That said, I've agreed to be a contributing Expert to answer your pressing style questions. I'll also share little things that inspire me, motivational things I've learned and sometimes just silly things that make me laugh. I love the verse that says, "As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another" (Proverbs 27-17). It's so valuable to me because I believe we were put on this earth to sharpen one another, and I'm inspired everyday by moments with mai family, fans and new friends. So, in advance, thanks for not expecting me to be the best writer or a perfect person, and instead just coming to have fun and do you.

    I'm pretty sure the boring things you'd want to know about me can all be found on Google. (No sex tapes... yet). However, because I want you to know me more personally, I'm more inclined to share ten random facts about me that Google wouldn't tell you. And please, feel free to tell me something about yourself in the comments below. Until next time, I hope mai posts help you get up, dress up and never ever give up... or get hit by a car in the process.

    10 Things you won't learn about me through a Google search

    1. I tell you to "Google" me, because Wikipedia's information on me is so wrong. They've got my birth date wrong and I do not say "so" a lot. I'm way busier saying "when's lunch?"

    2. I'm really happy that the stupid s*** I've done took place before the internet.

    3. I'm from the Bay and hella proud of it. I invited E40 and Mark Zuckerberg to my wedding, but still haven't heard back.

    4. I listen to country and Christian music when I work, hip hop and EDM when I play.

    5. My hall pass is Anthony Bourdain. My husband learned this after it was too late for him to back out.

    6. As a germaphobe, I'm an expert at using public restrooms with zero skin contact.

    7. I've contemplated getting butt implants... but I hate the idea of doing squats for maintenance.

    8. I'm obsessed with discovering people's love languages. Out of the five, mine would be "acts of service," and the additional sixth I've made up: "gifts of food."

    9. I'm a professional at finding a great deal. Either that, or I'm just Asian.

    10. Mai mission in life is to celebrate people's potential. God didn't waste His time makin' fools.

    But now, I finally have a reason to love Vera Bradley. Today, Sept. 16, the handbag designer is rolling out a line of leather and faux leather carryalls after 30 years of paisley prints and wacky color combos. And they look stunning.

    Vaer Bradley FB post annoucing Leather bags

    Vaer Bradley FB post annoucing Leather bags

    From the classic leather look, to the lovely quilting, to the array of brights in the line, I'm currently contemplating a Vera online shopping binge and pulling out my credit card, but will probably have to sleep on it for fear of maxing out my plastic!

    Vera Bradley Leather bags

    What's more, these bags are definitely affordable at $24 to $138 for faux leather and $98 to $298 for the real leather work. So if you're caught between two styles — perhaps basic black with tiny outlines of blue and the quilted with bold pops of orange color — you might be able to swing both.

    From what I've seen, I'd take 'em all. While Vera's other work skews youthful and fun, these are very grown-up handbags for a modern woman.

    Researchers took into account how lifestyle, occupational and environmental elements might contribute to wrinkle formation, as well as climate and pollution. They also considered more detailed criteria, such as stress levels, traffic, commutes and diet. "We sometimes forget that there are a number of regionally-based factors — not getting enough rest or working late hours — that can also take a toll on your skin," says Dr. Erin Gilbert, board certified dermatologist.

    The goal behind the study is to raise awareness that wrinkles are caused by several region-specific factors, and that individuals have the power to manage these influences. The good news? These 10 cities were ranked least likely to age your skin.

    So what makes these cities so wrinkle-free compared to the rest? Researchers found no two areas' risks for wrinkles were identical, regardless of proximity. For example, Riverside and San Diego are only two hours apart, yet San Diego ranked as the healthiest city for your skin. Why? Riverside was ranked as having an above average number of sunny days, while San Diego has a milder climate that's much easier on your skin.

    "Stress, UV exposure and pollution all affect our skin and vary from one city to another," says Joshua Zeichner, M.D., Director of Cosmetic and Clinical Research, Department of Dermatology, Mount Sinai Medical Center. "If you live in a city where there are longer commutes, complicated by sun exposure and stress, your skin can pay the price. Pollution also causes free radical damage to the skin, causing premature aging and wrinkles."

    When it comes to skin care, we always consider slathering on SPF to be the most important part of our routine — one, because it is, and two, because of how strong our awareness is. We tend not to think about the rest of the factors as much because they're not as amplified in the media.

    Even if you're not blessed enough to live in one of these unicorn wrinkle-free cities, there are four obvious ways to amp up your skin care routine. Now, you just have to do them.

    1. SPF

    "I recommend a good broad-spectrum SPF 30 sunscreen every day, rain or shine," says Debra Jaliman, M.D., dermatologist and author of Skin Rules. "Choose one with zinc oxide or titanium dioxide. To protect your eyes, Jaliman also recommends sunglasses with UV 400 blocking lenses.

    2. Antioxidants

    Antioxidants combat free radical damage from pollution. (Check out this fascinating play-by-play of what your skin goes through in a day. There's also a pollution meter to find out where your city ranks.) Jaliman recommends finding a product you can use at night with retinol, and then alternate it with a product with peptides, as these will both stimulate collagen production.

    3. Sleep

    Your skin repairs itself while you're sleeping, so if you don't score enough shut-eye, your skin doesn't have enough time to do its thing. "Make sure you get your beauty rest: seven to nine hours per night," says Jaliman. "Try not to sleep on your face either. Use a beauty pillow with a silk pillowcase or sleep on your back."

    4. Hydrate

    Your skin needs water, and with it being such a simple fix it amazes me how many of us are guilty of not hydrating enough (bashfully raises hand). Shoot for six cups of water daily — more if you exercise.

    Anyone who watches Scandal on ABC knows Olivia Pope, played by Kerry Washington, wears her professional attire like a total boss, and we'll admit to tuning into the juicy series for its amazing fashion (and the drama, natch). Starting next week, we'll be able to take home similar styles for ourselves when the collection launches in The Limited stores and online Sept. 23.

    Kerry Washington and Lyn Paolo

    Kerry Washington and Lyn Paolo

    Kerry Washington had a large part in designing the collection alongside Scandal's costume designer Lyn Paolo, who described the designs as "aspirational, sophisticated and feminine" in an interview with People StyleWatch.

    The Limited: Scandal collection

    Olivia's signature sleek outerwear, feminine blouses and wide-legged trousers dominate the 78-piece collection, and most of the pieces are interchangeable, so we're pretty sure professional ladies will snag the office-ready pieces fast.

    The Limited: Scandal collection 2

    While obviously inspired by the show's main character, the collection was also greatly inspired by the fans of the show, Paolo told People StyleWatch: "Our inspiration came from the fans, our amazing Gladiators, who were asking for a way to look like [the character]."

    The Limited: Scandal collection 3

    Washington, in particular, is pretty jazzed about the coats in the collection, describing them as a way her character manages to stay polished and put together: "Olivia is too busy to follow trends and looks for key pieces to incorporate into her wardrobe — look at her amazing outerwear collection! It's important to have a statement coat that carries across seasons."

    The Limited: Scandal collection 4

    We couldn't agree more. And with prices starting at just $49, it's safe to say looking like Olivia Pope just got a lot more affordable.

    To make sure you're getting the most bang for your buck, it's important to know what to look out for when T-shirt shopping. According to Melissa Core of Dead Horse Designs, there are several factors in play.

    1. Fabric quality

    For example, 100 percent cotton is standard and cheap, whereas if the T-shirt is made with bamboo or modal blends, the price of the shirt will go up.

    2. Cut and sew

    If the company is making the T-shirt pattern themselves, this will cause the price to rise since it's a custom design and not mass-produced.

    3. Where it's made

    Making garments in the USA is more expensive than making garments overseas, due to our wages being higher.

    4. Quantity

    Depending on how many units a company orders, the production value will impact the final result of the retail price. "The lower the units, the more expensive the shirt will be to produce," says Core. "The higher the units, the better the price breaks and margins."

    5. Colors in design

    If your tee has a snazzy design on the front, the number of colors in the design will impact the price to print them. "One color will be cheaper than say, three," says Code.

    Other qualities to look out for

    Even though they're pricier, look for tri-blend shirts: Tees that are spun using three different fabrics such as polyester/cotton/rayon. Why? They last longer, wash well and hold prints better.

    Also, look for shirts that are already pre-shrunk, says Andreea Ayers, founder of Tees For Change. If there's a graphic on the front, make sure it's of high quality too — you don't want it to crack after one wash! While it can be tough to tell, here's a good rule of thumb: "If you can feel the print on the shirt as you run your fingers over it and it's a bit raised, it's usually not as durable as ink that's embedded more into the fabric," says Ayers.

    If you're looking for a more budget-friendly tee, here's how to find a cheap tee that looks like a million bucks (you can also use these tips while sussing out the cheap tees masquerading as high-end): 

    1. "Make sure the front and back are both cut and sewn on either the bias or the grain," says fashion and beauty blogger Laura Yoder. We've all been there: You find a fab shirt that doesn't annihilate your wallet, only to find it twists when you put it on. This is because one side's cut on the bias, the other on the grain. Bring more than one of your size in the changing room to avoid this kerfuffle.
    2. Make sure the front and back colors match. "Sometimes you'll find inexpensive tees where the front and back offer just a bit of a color variance," says Yoder. "They were likely cut from two different bolts of fabric."
    3. Check the seams: They should be finished and free of dangling threads.

    Have you ever been trolling around on Etsy or Pinterest, seen something and exclaimed, "Yes, finally, yes!"

    Well, that's what happened when we stumbled on this iPhone makeup case... until we realized the makeup wasn't real.

    Admittedly it's still a really cute case as is, but our dream-minds started cranking away at how convenient it would be to have some blush, concealer or bronzer right there attached to the thing that we are never without.

    "It could just have a little plastic shield covering the makeup!" I argued with no one while staring at it. Makeup companies should jump on this. Ooh, and add lip gloss. Wait! And half should be a mirror. OK, yes. Blush, concealer and lip gloss. These are the three things I usually want to touch up when I am out anyway.

    Basically, life is better when you have all of your favorite things right at your fingertips, so iPhone, some fun makeup and Chris Pratt and I am all set. OK, makeup people, your move.

    I'd like to leave you with this important closing statement, as said by Danielle. In an Instagram post she writes, "Love the skin that you are in, and encourage others to do the same. Beauty comes in all shapes and sizes. Sometimes we have to remind ourselves of our beauty. Find a mirror, blow yourself a kiss, and say 'Shoot, I know I'm fine!!'"
