Modest Hollywood

Midway through one of the most perfect New York summers in recent history (wahhh, please don't ever leave summer), and the ladies of Hollywood are stepping up their game in the fashion department. Be it with feminine touches, lady-like silhouettes, bright and bold prints, and indisputable panache, the women below prove that dressing like a lady is always in style!

THIS JUST IN: Kate Looks Perfect in Blue. Again.

It's that little blue dress we have all come to love. And that blue blazer. And those blue shoes. Get it? And despite all these blues, Kate still manages to look a glowing, happy version of perfect at the Commonwealth games in Glasgow. It's not fair that the Brits get their own Olympics to enjoy. The Mini Olympics AND a Princess of Perfection-- these are my wildest Tuesday dreams come true.

Modest Hollywood

It's summertime in the city (and everywhere else in the northern hemisphere) and the women of Hollywood have turned up the heat. The fabulous frocks and beautiful outfits of the ladies below are enough to make anybody feel the heat of the season, and herein lies the proof that being covered up in the summer heat is possible...and perfect. 

So many dresses to love, so many outfits to adore, so many looks to admire! I'm a big fan of Kelly Osbourne's whimsical style, and I think America Ferrera and Ashley Madeweke look the picture of proper perfection. Emilia Fox is pretty much wearing my favorite look of the season, and Kudos go to Zendaya for dressing cute and adorable but still sophisticated-- I believe they call that being age appropriate. But my absolute true love and devotion is aimed at a one miss Nicola Peltz who has literally stunned on the red carpet and the runway of life lately. Girl is having a serious moment now and she is one of my new fashion idols; I'm pretty much obsessed.

The Duchess was Pretty in Pink!

Not only is that one of the most epic movies of all time that should have won an Oscar, but didn't, but it's also the theme of Kate's outfit today-- ya know, because she's always pretty and she's wearing pink. Kate's dress is by Goat (yes, Goat) and she paired the frock with her classic nude heels and her radiant glow of Princess Awesomeness. In case you were wondering, I don't myself have a glow of Princess Awesomeness; I have more of an Average Commoner Sheen. Really I think it's more just sweat, but I'll take what I can get.

Thanks for the morning refresher, Kate!

The New Royals on the European Block

And by "new royals", I mean old royals with new titles. Ladies and ladies, say hello to the newly minted King and Queen of Spain, King Felipe and Queen Letizia! More importantly, say hello to another famous royal who dresses modestly, one who I'll be ardently following. I've always had my eye on Letizia and her fashion, but now that she's Queen, it's time to step up my devotion to her wardrobe.

The affair in Madrid was relatively low-key, but that didn't stop Letizia from banging out this awesome bejeweled coat dress for the occasion. And let's just point out those adorable dresses on Felipe and Letizia's little girls. Hastag adorbs.

Modest Hollywood

While I love fashion and prowl celebrity outfits like it's my job (because it kinda is), there are very few fashion idols that I wish to emulate in every possible way. There is no question, however, that Olivia Palermo is hands down my fashion idol. There are very few things that she wears that I don't like, and I often find myself looking for pieces that mimic hers. Her outfit below is one of my favorites as it has just the right amount class and quirk to be perfect. FYI My other fashion idol is Kiernan Shipka-- yes the mini January Jones from Mad Men is probably one of the best dressed ladies in Hollywood and has the fashion thing DOWN.Keep on keeping on, ladies.
