I’m not a huge fan of the t-shirt/sweater dress look myself, but there are some people in the world, one of those people being Charlotte McKinney, who can really rock the look.

Fan Art Fridays: Saoirse Ronan

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! 

In honor of the Irish holiday, I thought it would be fun to feature some fan art of one of my fave actresses of Irish heritage, Saoirse Ronan!
I loved her so much in the film Brooklyn. A co-worker of mine got to see her in the play The Crucible, which I’m super jelly about.

This piece of fan art is by a fellow WordPress blogger Rizza Maruja. You can check out how she made this amazing polygon portrait of the Irish-American actress here!

Fan Art Fridays: Meryl Streep

Meryl Streep won the DeMille Award at the Golden Globes this year, and boy, was that one hell of an acceptance speech or what?!

I’ve loved Meryl in basically every movie I’ve seen her in, from Doubt to It’s Complicated. She’s timeless, and gives life to every character she plays.

In honor of her achievement, I’ve decided to feature this fan art of her from DeviantArt by Miko2660. She looks quite young in this piece of fan art, perhaps from the late ’70s. It was created using ArtStuido.

I love how she’s looking up in the piece, as if she’s in a state of utter bliss. Her hair also looks so wispy!

Fan Art Fridays: RIP Debbie Reynolds & Carrie Fisher

Boy, the award shows in 2017 going to have very long and incredibly sad “in memoriam” segments.

This week, we lost two amazing Hollywood actresses—Carrie Fisher (December 27) and her mother Debbie Reynolds (December 28).

This mother-daughter duo is definitely one to be remembered. I mean, how crazy is it that Reynolds’ last words were “I want to be with Carrie”?

The fan art tributes for both actresses so far have been really amazing. This one I found on Instagram by mllearole does a great job of capturing Fisher and Reynolds’ mother-daughter relationship. In it, the two stand together, hand in hand, head to head, Fisher dressed as Star Wars character Princess Leia and Reynolds dressed as Kathy from Singin’ in the Rain.

There’s so much softness and affection oozing from this fan art. I hope they both rest in peace, hopefully side by side, eyes closed just as they appear in this work of art.

Go show mllearole’s piece some love over on Instagram.

Fan Art Fridays: Amy Schumer

Amy Schumer has another movie coming out, and I’m super excited.

How am I supposed to wait until May for Snatched?! It seems so far away!

Anyway, I thought I’d share this sketch of Amy Schumer I found on Deviant Art by seanjo. She looks all perky and put together as opposed to the mess that goes down in the trailer for Snatched.

View the original fan art here, and see the trailer below!

Wardrobe Wednesdays: Nina Dobrev @ ‘XXX: Return of Xander Cage’ LA Screening

Nina Dobrev made an appearance at the Los Angeles screening of XXX: Return of Xander Cage on Saturday wearing the most eye-catching Versace sweater I’ve seen this fall.

The middle and arms of the sweater have light pink and blue knitted patterns, the latter of which is brought out by the blue suede clutch bag that the Bulgarian-Canadian actress carried.

She took the opportunity to show off some leg with a faux leather mini skirt. If this doesn’t prove that pleather is the way to go then I don’t know what will.

See below for some of the original pieces (marked by *) and alternatives inspired by the look!

Sweater:

1. mytheresa.com, $2,295.00 *

2. American Eagle Outfitters, $49.95

4. Macy’s, $148.00

Fan Art Fridays: Natalie Portman

Today I found out that Natalie Portman is playing Jackie Kennedy in the new film coming in December called Jackie. 

And oh-em-gee did the clothing design and hair and makeup artists do an amazing job at transforming her! I can’t handle how amazing the resemblance is.

Needless to say, I might actually go see the film in theaters.

For this week’s Fan Art Fridays, I decided to feature the actress in pop art form. This fan art was done by Mr-FunnyFace on Deviant Art.

See the original fan art here and enjoy the trailer for Jackie below.
