Spring Trend: Turquoise

Hey!
So the color turquoise has been popping up as of late on many the red carpet whether blessing full on frocks or popping with accessories. The cool color is perfect for warm weather, reflecting the clear sky and flattering most skin tones.
Let's take a look at how some of our favorites rock it:
Selita Ebanks looks stunning yet simple in a cool blue thigh length cocktail...
Serena has a similar look, yet jazzes up her ensemble with an embellished neckline and matching shoes...
Beauty Cassie shimmers in an ice blue frock and adds a belt for emphasis...
Angela Simmons, not a fan of full on blue, just adds a pop with a pair of patent turquoise pumps...
...And Ms. Fox follows suit with simple jewelry...
...worn with a neutral outfit.
Get a turquoise look with the following:
Top Row: Silky Knit Banded Dress, $58, www.rampage.com; Miranda Pendant, $148, www.coach.com; Karoo Mark Eisen Empire Tank Dress, $98, www.nordstrom.com.
Middle Row: Enamel Bamboo Hoop Earrings, $17.61, www.asos.com; Sam Edelman Gillian Sandals, $69, www.tobi.com; Cousin Claudine Stretch Bracelets, $125, www. intermixonline.com;
Bottom Row: Fausta Moretti Closed Toe Slip Ons, $139, www.yoox.com; Set Stone Turquoise Ring, $32, www.luckybrandjeans.com; RSVP Yvette Sandals, $65, www.zappos.com.
Smootches!

Fashion, News, and What Nots
*W Magazine is looking for interns!!

Fashionista reports, "W Magazine needs full time and part time interns for Fall '08. You should be prepared to work 2-5 days a week, for 8 - 12 hours a day. You will be working in the W fashion closet, calling in clothes, helping to pack for fashion shoots, and occasionally assisting on sets. You will be really bored and really stressed unless the only thing you have ever wanted to do is work at a fashion magazine."
So many of you write in asking me how to break into fashion...this is how!
If interested, e-mail garrett_munce@condenast.com with a short explanation of why you'd be perfect for the job (oh and your Fall '08 schedule). Do it!!
