Mail Bombs!!!

It's Friday...
First up Edrei says, "Any idea who designed the maxi dress Gabby wore to the premiere of Meet Dave??"
"... I have a function next week and this would be perfect."
Intern Elita stepped in and said, "The dress is by Issa according to many sources, but there's no way to prove it as the dress isn't on their site. It's a pretty typical Issa shape, though. Try this $291 Issa Silk Jersey Dress for a similar silhouette..."
I also found that this Donna Karen Fuchsia Ruched Jersey Dress gave off a similar essence...
...get it for $2,495 at
Next, STW says, "I have a little favor to ask. Can you recreate this outfit worn by Vanessa Simmons at the BET 2008 AWARDS...?"
"...I will greatly appreciate it..I'm on a budget and I love her purple and white combo!"
Get her look by combining the following high and low priced items:
1. Milly Ruffled Silk Top, $172. 2. Michael Kors Gold Logo Engraved Chain Belt, $48. 3. Polyester Micro-Fiber Tulip Skirt, $28. 4. Felix Rey Gold Quilted Gabby Clutch, $180.
Next, Samona says, "Can u please tell me where I can find this dress?? "
I couldn't find the exact dress, but felt these came close:

1. Tocca Cream Floral Silk Dress, $213. 2. Faith Flower Dress, $22.80. 3. Jill Stuart Lindsay Cherry Print Dress, $325.50. 4. Monochromatic Halter Dress, $29.80.
Tana says, "I have a dress that these Gold Chains Madonna's wearing would look perfect with..."
"... I'm not sure where to start looking for them.... any ideas???"
Seems Madonna took a cue from Givenchy's Fall 2008 RTW Runway...
...and went for layered look.
In your case, try throwing on a few of these $125 Six Strand Mix Chain Necklaces...
Lastly, Bella says, "I have been looking for a quality big but tastefully cute, eye-catching but non expensive, goes with just about everything Crystal ring similar to what Alicia Keys has on in her "Superwoman" video..."
"... Can you help?"
Try these reasonably priced baubles:

1. Noir Rectangle Stone Cocktail Ring, $60. 2. Kenneth Jay Lane Roud Gold Pave Ring, $145. 3. Royalty Ring, $4.80.

For the big crystal rings you can just walk up and down the 500 block of Broadway, considering you live in NYC. The street vendors have a wide variety and you can always talk them down. If you don't live in NYC try Claires, Afaze, and Forever 21!

Angela's BET Award outfit is cute as hell too! Where can I get that? The skirt looks like Harve Leguer (sp?). Cute!
