I Love Your Style: Nicole Richie

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.

Campus Couture: Mary, Ecole Centrale d’Electronique

As part of this Campus Couture series, each week we invite you, our dear readers, to submit photos of yourselves or your super fashionista friends so that we can celebrate and ogle your style, and get some inspiration for our own wardrobes. And this week, Mary did just that. All the way from Paris!

Campus Couture: Kelsey, Lakehead

In Northern Ontario, our spring climate is slightly unpredictable. A few weeks ago it seriously went from beautiful sun to snow on the ground in 3 days. So the college girls up here have to be prepared and equipped; fun, warm-weather outfits must be on call!

We’re Shaking in Our Ankle Booties for NY Fashion Week!

For us fashionistas, New York Fashion Week is the highlight of the year (or at least the highlight of this dreary February we're having). Our CollegeCandy hearts always skips a beat when we see those white tents going up in Bryant Park. The clothes, the shoes, the celebrities, the glamour... Sigh. It's almost too much to bear.

Golden Globe Fashion: Our Fave Bits and Pieces

While the Golden Globes were pretty entertaining last night (what's funnier than watching celebs make fun of each other and take serious jabs at NBC), the true magic of the show began a few hours before Ricky Gervais (be still my heart) took the stage. And that magic is better known as the Red Carpet.

Costco Goes Couture!

Chanel at Costco? STFU. I thought the only thing of value they had there was the 40-pack of Trojans for a mere $10. Who knew that between the 80 rolls of Angel Soft toilet paper and the caskets, a myriad of designer brand names could be found at your local Costco warehouse?

Rent The Runway Makes My Couture Dreams Come True

The basement of my parents’ house is a graveyard of dresses from years gone by. Prom dresses, formal dresses, dresses worn to weddings – you name it, and you can find it down there. Seriously, I put Katherine Heigl's 27 dresses to shame. And the worst part of it all is that these precious and costly dresses only saw the light of day once in their entire existence.

Campus Couture: Keepin’-It-Comfy Meagan

I’ve known Meagan since elementary school, and she’s always been one of the happiest people I know (she’s a cheerleader so she has to be, I guess). Her clothing choices are always full of color and spunk, and she is the definition of cute: a tiny body with a big personality that shines through her outfits.

Campus Couture: Sweet and Simple Sarah

Even though she isn’t in college anymore, Sarah still exudes the typical college girl enthusiasm for new clothes and the word “sale.” When I approached her to take a picture of her look, she agreed... but only if I took a picture of the back of her skirt. She wanted to show off the best parts of her look: the pretty metallic details and ruffles next to the rich color of her scarf.

Campus Couture: Treehugging Chloe

Meet Chloe. Whenever I see her on campus, she always has the cutest outfits on that make you think of picnicking in green meadows and somersaulting across the grassy field. Her style is always really fresh with girly touches like headbands and hair pins, and plenty of gold-toned jewelry to go with. And no one has ever seen her without a cloth bag. Ever.

I’m Torn: Anna Sui Does Gossip Girl for Target

I love Gossip Girl. Ever since I heard Kristin Bell's first "xoxo" back in 2007, I've been hooked. GG's got it all: drama, scandal, hot men, and adorable outfits. The thing about those outfits, however amazing they may be, is that they can be super expensive.
