Apparently blonds do have more fun—at least according to our Hollywood Makeover where last month you tried on these four blond beauties a total of 212,451 times! Drew Barrymoore’s baby blond waves ran a close second to Kim Kardashian’s caramel-colored locks, with banged babes Reese Witherspoon and Ali Larter third and fourth on the must-try list. So whether you are seriously considering taking the peroxide plunge or just want to remind yourself why you love being a brunette or redhead—take a cue from the masses and try out your blond side!
Hot off the press! Annette Tatum’s gorgeous new decorating book, The Well Dressed Home, is a treasure trove of lush, fashion-inspired interiors. An LA-based interior designer (Marcia Cross and Minnie Driver love her Santa Monica store!) and fashion aficionado, Tatum’s credo is “inspiration is everywhere” even where you might least expect it.” The book is filled to the brim with genius ways to go from runway to room, making personal style about both what you wear AND how you live.

What do you get when you mix a footwear genius with your favorite wear-everywhere label? The one and only boot you’ll need all winter long! French shoe designer Pierre Hardy collaborated with all-American label Gap on a fourth shoe collection and we fell in love with the chic, wearable boots—especially this grey suede and shearling platform style. With a perfectly mid-length design, these will look as great tucked into our skinny jeans as it will with skirts and dresses—not to mention keep our toes cozy! And the neutral color (begone boring black!) makes them perfect for daily wardrobe rotation. Pick them up at Gap stores for $190 starting Monday, October 19th!
Madonna helped put New York City’s Casa Lever on the map before its official opening when she showed up to help fete pal Penelope Cruz at a party for the premiere of Cruz’s film Broken Embraces. The boite features 19 original Andy Warhol portraits, a menu of Italian dishes and classic sips like the Milanese.

Forget downtown and the Upper East Side, the fictional characters from our favorite TV shows and movies have found a new social epicenter—the Empire Hotel on New York City’s Upper West Side. Just this week, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall and surprise star guest Penelope Cruz were spotted filming scenes for the upcoming Sex and The City sequel in the boutique property’s sultry Lobby Bar. Earlier this season on Gossip Girl, Chuck Bass “bought” the Empire, which means that if you check in at the right time, you just might cross paths with Ed Westwick, Leighton Meester or Blake Lively when the cast returns to film new scenes later this fall. And when New York Fashion Week relocates just across the street to Lincoln Center in September 2010, the real-life style icons and celebrities are soon to follow in Carrie and Chuck’s footsteps.
