Style File: Christina Milian

Hey Y'all,
For this week’s style file, my fashion spotlight shines on actress and singer Christina Milian!

Ok, ok. Ms. Milian hasn't had the best career as a singer—or an actor. But I can’t deny it, this chick is beautiful, and she has the body to pull off a variety of looks.
There are a few occasions where Christina tries—and fails—at following trends.

This candy striper inspired sweater dress looks totally tacky with the matchy, matchy accessories. And white spandex capris?? Boo!

Ditto for this get up. These crazy paisley-esque are in a word, repulsive.
But we all have our bad days, right? For the most part Ms. Milian pulls it together and holds it down for the young brown in Hollywood.
She typically rocks shiny, short, saucy dresses for the red carpet…

Then works with a mixture of classic trenches…

Body flattering shorts…

Cute, yet simple tops...

Sweater dresses…

Pencil skirts…

And age appropriate club dresses…

...for her day to night grind.
Want her look? I’ve compiled a few high and low priced Christina Milian like items for ya. Check it out:

Top Row: Ecoganik Tissue Jersey Tee with Chains in Taupe, $72, CoutureCandy
Long Sleeve Ruffle Shirt, $25,; Gap Casual Trench Coat, $70,
Middle Row: Nicole Miller Square Neck Stretch Silk Dress, $365,; Bronx Claudine Shoes, $89,
Karoo Mark Eisen 3GG Plume Short Sleeve Dress with Empire Waist, $242,
Bottom Row: Isaac Mizrahi for Target Strapless Dress, $40,; Linen Button Tab Shorts, $20,; Diane Von Furstenberg Mercedes Dress, $325,
Now dip it low.

I agree, she's so pretty! Her career has been unfortunate, but girl's got style. That DVF dress is kinda hot...I wonder when it'll be in Forever 21.

I love much talent but often looked over but I've noticed that she can be notorious overaccessorizer( made-up word!).

Maybe that just me.:)
