Rachel Bilson (as Zoe Hart) in Rag & Bone

Did anyone else happen to catch the premiere of Rachel Bilson's Hart of Dixie last night? I never thought I'd say this as the biggest OC fan ever, but I think her character Zoe Hart's style may just be better than Summer Roberts' was!

Here Ms. Bilson as Zoe Hart is in a fantastic pair of Rag & Bone Malin Pants, a Theory Yessica Striped Top, a Veronique Leroy jacket and Alexander Wang Kasia Patent Leather Wedges. This outfit is perfection. Complete and utter perfection. The best piece of it all, I think, which ties the entire ensemble together, is that to-die-for Veronique Leroy Jacket. The floral stitching is adorable.

Rachel, welcome back. We've missed you.

Ashley Tisdale in Free People

The always stylish Ashley Tisdale was spotted out and about with Hilary and Haylie Duff on Sunday, September 25.

For her girls' day, Ashley wore a blanket-inspired Free People Carnival Rolla Coasta Cardigan and a pair of Ugg Australia Bailey Button Triplet Boots. Cozy, comfortable and cute; this is what fall is all about!

Vanessa Hudgens in Nightcap

The gorgeous Vanessa Hudgens was photographed leaving BFF Ashley Tisdale's sister's birthday party on Saturday, September 17 in Los Angeles, California. The ladies noshed on corn ravioli, steak tartare, fried chicken and crispy squash blossoms at LA hot spot the Lexington Social Club.

Vanessa looked stunning in her fitted, feminine Nightcap Clothing Sleeveless Victorian Lace Dress. She toughened up the otherwise girly look with an edgy Alexander Wang Diego Studded Bag. Also, I'm loving the hair extensions. I used to be a long, luscious, Blake Lively type hair lover, but these days it's messy, shaggy bobs that get me. And Ms. Hudgens' is definitely perf. suited to her bohemian, rocker style.

Emily Blunt in Prada

British, Golden Globe winning actress, Emily Blunt (right), was photographed attending the premiere of her film Your Sister's Sister on Sunday, September 11, at the Ryerson Theater in Toronto, Ontario for the Toronto International Film Festival.

Emily looked gorgeous in a feminine and fashion-forward Prada Pink and Black Cady Silk Cap Sleeve Dress With a Red Bow Waist and Prada Double Strap Heels.

While being interviewed by a member of the press while walking the red carpet for the premiere, Emily mentioned that she still gets hate mail for marrying hubby John Krasinski of The Office fame. Funny, eh? (Yes, I just said eh; this is a time for some Canadian pride. I love TIFF!) I too would send some nastily written letters to the gorgeous Ms. Blunt in regards to her funny, adorbs husband if she weren't so sexy and funny herself! I'm kind of in love with him, but in love with her too. They're one sexy, funny couple!

Elizabeth Olsen in Erdem

Elizabeth Olsen hit the premiere of her film Martha Marcy May Marlene held at the Ryerson Theatre yesterday, September 11 in Toronto, Ontario, for the Toronto International Film Festival.

Lizzie posed on the red carpet in a gorgeous, colourful Erdem Resort 2012 Floral Gown, a Salvatore Ferragamo Stingray Minaudiere, a Melinda Maria Galaxy Melted Pave Ring and a Kara Ackerman GemGirls Star Charm Bracelet. How much Elizabeth look like her twin sisters, BTW? She's like a slightly curvier, younger triplet. She's simply stunning! And I adore her fun accessories with this gown. It proves, much like MK and A, that she doesn't take fashion too seriously.

Supposedly Elizabeth is going to be this year's Jennifer Lawrence when it comes time for award season, so I'm sure we'll be seeing a whole lot more of her. Have any of you been lucky enough to catch the TIFF screening of Martha Marcy May Marlene?

Leighton Meester in Alexander McQueen

Leighton Meester, best known for her role as Blair Waldorf in (my personal favourite)the CW hit series Gossip Girl, hit the red carpet for the premiere of her film, The Oranges, at the Toronto International Film Festival on Saturday, September 10.

For the premiere, Leighton rocked head-to-toe Alexander McQueen in a Resort 2012 Military Eyelet Dress, Resort 2012 Belt, patterned Resort 2012 Ankle Strap Platform Pumps and a Resort 2012 Buckle Clutch.

What does everyone think of Ms. Meester's look here? Her hair, I think, looks awesome (I'm totally partial to bangs), and her dress is, yes, very pretty, but it's all a little...matchy-matchy, yes? Brown hair that matches the brown belt, which matches the patterned brown shoes, which match the brown and white clutch, which ties in the white dress. Leighton's normally really daring and edgy with her style. Here, there's no edginess at all. Just...white. It's well pulled-together, nonetheless.

The countdown to Gossip Girl returning is on! Make sure you turn in to see Leighton as Blair and all her Chuck/wanting to be royalty drama on Monday, September 26.

Lauren Conrad in Equipment

Author/Reality TV Star/Paper Crown Designer, Lauren Conrad, was photographed leaving Troubadour on Friday, September 2, in West Hollywood. And may I just say, holy legs!

Lauren was looking simple yet sexy for her night out on the town in (seemingly only) an Equipment Daddy Nautical Stripe Blouse and a Chanel Classic Flap Bag. This IS barely-there done right. Even without anything visible for bottoms, Lauren looks classy in her breezy, oversized blouse. Also, loving the hair and makeup. She looks stunning. Perfect. Everything you could ever say nice about a woman's appearance, Lauren is here.

BTW, if any of you are looking for another good blog to check out, head on over to Lauren's at http://www.laurenconrad.com/. She updates it almost constantly with fashion, fitness and overall life tips. It's great!

Brand I Love: Frye

Now that Labour Day has come and gone, summer has officially been erased by the arrival of cooler weather, school buses and back to normal workweeks (sigh). Many of you are probably very depressed by this, and while I admit I was for a second or two seriously contemplating moving across North America to somewhere with a more forgiving mix of work-life balance and longer, sunnier days, something came to mind that instantly improved my mood and had me basically begging for autumn/winter weather: BOOTS!

Fall has to be my favourite time of year for fashion, boots being one of the main components making it so. And no one, I mean NO ONE, does boots quite like Frye.

The Frye Company was established in 1863 when John A. Frye opened the doors of a small shop on Elm Street in Marlboro, Massachusetts. According to Frye's website, Mr. Frye opened his store to ease the daily working lives of factory workers with well-designed, functional, comfortable leather boots. In the last hunder and almost fifty years, Frye has continued on with this goal, but instead of serving solely factory workers, they've also become a total staple to the closets of celebrities, socialites and unknown fashionistas alike.

The following are my top five favourite Frye boots for fall:

Boot Numer 1: Engineer 12R Boots

As seen on Miley Cyrus, Keira Knightley, (my fave) Rachel Bilson and more, the Frye 12R Engineer Boot is cool, edgy and a little bit badass in the best possible way. Wear them like Ms. Bilson with a feminine, flowy top for balanced, boho look.

Boot Number 2: Veronica Slouch Boots

The Frye Veronica Slouch Boot, as seen here on Ashley Tisdale, is a rugged, sexy boot perfect for fall weather. I love, love, LOVE the deep brown colour of and slight slouchy detail of its leather. Pair them with skinny jeans for a sensible, adorable, slightly cowboy-ish look this season.

Boot Number 3: Jane Suede Strappy Boots

I love suede. I find it romantic, and casual, and perfectly suited for black opaque tights and floaty floral dresses. These Jane Suede Strappy Boots are just gorgeous. They're what I dream about when I dream about suede boots. Which actually does happen. Often.
