Public appearances can pose a challenge for young actresses, who alternatively risk appearing too young, too sexy or too mature.
Taking fuddy duddy, traditionally American things and turning them into high fashion seems to be a budding trend. (See: Glamping.) The latest target of the luxury fashion world's makeover is everyone's favorite holiday tradition: The Christmas Sweater. Somewhere between classy (as defined by Derek Blasberg) and campy (as defined by Corky St. Clair) is this list of Christmas sweaters from big name designers like Stella McCartney and Marc Jacobs. It's the best new mix of high and low, plus you'll probably wear these Christmas sweaters again, as opposed to the one your mom made you with yarn and a hot glue gun. (Sorry, Mom!) Check out the festive options available for Christmas and get in the holiday spirit!
We didn't make it to the Dazed party at Don Hill's last night (although we heard a bunch of people got arrested, so maybe that's a good thing), but we did manage to stop by the Creatures of Comfort New York store launch on Mulberry Street and Style.com's 10th anniversary bash, which was taking place just a couple of blocks away.

Most was made from a delicate crepe, with some cotton mixed in. And the color palette? Seafoam, terra cotta, white, periwinkle...everything we want for spring. After fawning over the clothes, we chatted with our Carroll Gardens contingency--Izzy from RackedNY, Adele from Epaulet, and Jen from Bird. South Brooklyn is the best. But soon it was time to head to Lafayette for Style.com's 10th anniversary party.
