Everyone has their own Facebook style. Are you a commenter?? A tagger? A constant Facebook status updater? Or the best, a chronic Facebook wall poster. Everyone likes a quality wallpost.
Before school starts in a week and a half, I've decided to give myself some much needed chill time. A.K.A. sleeping until around 2 p.m., catching up on T.V. I didn't get a chance to watch over the summer and then showering after that stressful day before night time boozin. What can I say, it's a great Welcome Week and it's even better when I can revisit some of my favorite shows from my childhood.
Besides Frida Kahlo being known for those tightly wound locks on her head, she's also known as the only woman with a mustache and unibrow who had men and women lusting after her and her artwork. Now that's some kind of sex appeal I will never know.
Remember years ago when Gavin Rossdale, Gwen Stefani's delicious British boy-toy, was accused of having a secret love child even from before the times of No Doubt or Bush? I heard about it around the days when I still wore a Catholic School uniform to represent my "style" and didn't believe it was true. Then I never heard about it again. Until now.

As you may have come to notice, I seem to have an affinity towards style icons that dress like they're a little peeved about something. And Taylor Momsen is the queen of the peeve. While 17-year-old Jenny Humphrey on Gossip Girl has a few things to be angry about (namely, playing second fiddle to her perfect brother and bombshell step-sister), I'm not exactly sure what's getting Taylor's panties (when she wears them, that is) in a bunch.

I'm sure a lot of you have been waiting for this. If you don't already know who Nicole Richie is, excuse me while I pick my jaw up off the floor. OK, now let's move on. A few years back, there was a show starring two insanely spoiled socialites that had to "live simply" under one roof with some folks from rural America. Yeah, I never watched it in fear of losing some serious brain cells, but one of those two spoiled heiresses was Nicole Richie.

Emma Watson isn't just that charming Brit that plays that one chick in that Harry Potter flick. She's grown before our eyes from the awkward 11-year-old Hermione to the classy, well-mannered face of Burberry with a personal style that, thankfully, doesn't resemble anything you'd see in the halls of Hogwarts.
At one point in my life, there was a time when I did think Sarah Silverman was absolutely high-larious on her show, The Sarah Silverman Program. Unfortunately, those days have long since passed, but I'm still left with something about her that I admire. No, it's not her ability to rock a mustache. Yes, surprisingly, it's her style.
If you haven't seen The Virgin Suicides, go see it! RIGHT NOW! Directed by Sofia Coppola, another style icon, you can see how the 5 Lisbon sisters' lives unfold in this dreamy and mysterious (and true) story. Originally based on the book by Jeffery Eugenides, the story is set in the 1970s in a town about 15 minutes away from where I live.
Before the days of dating the super delicious Jason Momoa, or the days before she birthed the naturally stylish daughter Zoe with her then-husband LENNY KRAVITZ (her taste in men is impeccable to say the least), Lisa Bonet was simply Denise Huxtable on The Cosby Show.
Sometimes in this (awesome) summer heat, the last thing on our minds isn't what else we can add to an outfit to showcase our style, but how many layers we can remove without flashing too much skin or, worse, a nipple. And if I had to name one person who balances this all out perfectly, it's Sanoe Lake.
Diablo Cody is one cool lady. Not just because she has a wicked awesome tattoo on her arm of a pinup girl, the fact that she won an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay for Juno, her previous profession of being a talented "clothing-remover," or the fact that her name means "devil" in Spanish.
In Annie Hall, Annie and Alvy attempt a relationship. They break up. They get back together. The process repeats, blah blah blah. It was a great movie no doubt, but half the time I was watching, I was more focused on how I can dress like a women trying to dress like a man without looking like a man. Does that make sense? Let's hope so.
