Style Crush: Kate Bosworth + Recreating Her Looks!

Happy birthday, Kate Bosworth! Today is the blonde beauty’s 32nd birthday, and we couldn’t pass up the chance to not just celebrate her but also her impeccable fashion sense. The LA-born actress may have been raised mostly on the East Coast, but she has always retained a sunny Cali-girl vibe that is equal parts elegant and effortless, understated and undeniable.

Since bursting onto the scene with her breakthrough role in Blue Crush, the former Lois Lane and current newlywed (to director Michael Polish) has become a style superstar, the face of Coach and Calvin Klein, with a footwear line debuting for Spring 2015. And her personal style is as gorgeous and intriguing as her signature eyes (one hazel and one blue thanks to heterochromia). So to show our appreciation for her sartorial contributions, we’ve decided to recreate three of Kate’s casual-chic outfits below, as well as round up a gallery showcasing dozens of her other flawless looks. Scroll down and take a looksee for some instant inspiration…

Happy Birthday, Kim Kardashian!

Whether you loathe her or love her, you can’t deny that her style game has gone off the charts. Sure, cleavage and side boob still make appearances, but her overall sleek makeover hasn’t gone unnoticed.

Not sure of how you heard the Kardashian name? Perhaps it was Kim’s iPhone game. No? Maybe her makeup line or clothing collections? Not to mention Keeping Up With The Kardashians, of course. What with being the famous mommy of a famous baby and one half of KimyeWell, Kim Kardashian has been a busy bee.

So it’s not surprising that there are over 20 million people who follow her on Instagram and 24.5 million people who read her tweets. She’s probably getting a lot of birthday wishes right now, one of which shall be ours: Happy birthday, Kim!

Peep this gallery for those looks we were gabbing about.

Also, can we just pause (“Imma-let-you-finish”) and look at this by the way? Kanye being a gentleman. Ugh, so cute. Even some of the iciest Kimye haters must have thawed a tiny bit when they saw these photos.

How To Be The Bombshell Dot Com: Lessons From Marilyn

This past Sunday marked the eighty-eighth birthday of one Norma Jeane Baker, better known to the world as Miss Marilyn Monroe. Some fifty years after her passing, Marilyn Monroe is still a style icon today, her infamous dresses selling for millions, her likeness and words the subject of Pin-worthy E-cards everywhere. She was arguably the blondest and bombest of all the blonde bombshells throughout Hollywood’s glittering history, so who better to teach us how to be a bombshell than Marilyn herself, right? We’ve highlighted some of her most iconic fashion pieces, which along with some of her best quotes will hopefully teach us a thing or two on becoming nothing less than the-bombshell-dot-com…

The Plunging Neckline

Taking The Plunge Halter JumpsuitGood In The Hood Chambray JumpsuitPlunging Single-Slit Maxi Dress

The Plunging Neckline“I love to do things the censors won’t pass.” To really be a bombshell, you’ll need to dare to bare, and one of the best ways is with a plunging neckline. So don’t be afraid to, well, take the plunge.

The Pencil Skirt

Stripe A Match Midi Pencil Skirt, X Factor Surplice Back Pencil SkirtPhoto Finish Textured Pencil Skirt

The Pencil Skirt — “I defy gravity.” There’s no avoiding the curves if you’re trying to be a bodacious babe, and wiggling into a hip-hugging skirt will keep everything up and in but out of this world.

The Lucite Heel

Metallic Glass Slipper WedgesIn The Clear Chain Link Wedges, Clearly Velvet Lucite HeelsI Love Lucite Platform Pumps

The Lucite Heel — “Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world.” You can’t really get more glam than the platform heel. That is, unless you add luxe, luscious lucite. Marilyn would tell you, it’s okay to be a little transparent.

The High-Waisted Short

High-Waisted Faux Leather ShortsZip It Denim ShortsOff The Cuff High-Waisted Shorts

The High-Waisted Short — “The body is meant to be seen, not all covered up.” Long before The Neighbourhood proclaimed their affinity for “those little high-waisted shorts” in Sweater Weather, Marilyn was already a fan. And what’s not to like? Everything is held in, and nothing gets you looking leggier…

The Off-Shoulder

Bow Off-The-Shoulder Bodycon DressStrips Search Off-Shoulder DressBasic Instincts Off-Shoulder Dress

The Off-Shoulder — “One of the best things that ever happened to me is that I’m a woman.” If you share Marilyn’s sentiment for womanhood, why not bare a woman’s best feature? We’re of course talking the shoulders. Buuuuut if you want to show off, er, a little more in your off-shoulder top, we won’t stop you.

The Dark Turtleneck

Turtleneck Crop TopSingle Lady Mockneck Romper

The Dark Turtleneck — “We are all of us stars, and we deserve to twinkle.” Marilyn also famously said “Your clothes should be tight enough to show you’re a woman but loose enough to show you’re a lady.” The turtleneck is the perfect balance between demure (the coverage) and dangerous (the curves), and on that dark canvas, your moneymaker (your face, duh!) will simply shine.

Let’s not stop now! Here are some lesser-known facts about Miss Monroe that we can all use as life lessons:

1. When she found out that jazz singer Ella Fitzgerald could not perform at the historic Mocambo nightclub in Hollywood because of segregation, Marilyn promised to sit front row in exchange for Fitzgerald’s booking, knowing her presence would garner press and publicity for the facility. Lesson learned? Be good to others, and don’t be afraid to take a stand!

2. Hollywood’s most famous blonde actually started out with reddish brown hair, and she would later begin to shave off half an inch from one heel to give herself that trademark wiggle. Lesson learned? Do what is right for you and your body!

3. Marilyn was very diligent about her skincare, washing her face fifteen times a day and applying a hormone cream to it that caused a layer of blonde down to form over her face. Instead of shaving that peach fuzz, she chose to use it to her advantage, and from then on she never needed special lenses to get that soft glow on camera. Lesson learned? Embrace your unique attributes!

4. In her childhood and adolescence, Marilyn had a stutter. She would eventually overcome it with the help of a therapist who told her to speak with a breathy tone, which would eventually become one of her trademarks. Lesson learned? Overcome hardships and become better for it!

5. She may have sung “Diamonds Are A Girl’s Best Friend” in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, but Marilyn had mostly costume jewelry and loved having fun and making statements with her accessories. Lesson learned? Money does not buy style, and the important thing is to have fun with what you wear!

Happy Birthday, Aaliyah!

For those of us who grew up in the 90s Aaliyah was it. We coveted her cool but sexy style, we practiced the dance moves from her videos, and oh, man. Those abs. We wanted those abs.

The R&B princess ruled into the early 2000s with her seductive street style and silky, soulful vocals. And even though she was only 22 when she passed, she left a lasting imprint on the music industry, with lines from her most iconic numbers still being interpolated into today’s big hits (‘Cause I really need somebody, tell me are you that somebody…) and modern artists still citing her influence as inspiration. (As evidenced by Drake’s tattoo, love letter, earpiece, etc. Yeah, the boy’s got it bad. Look it up.)

The urban pop princess and Romeo Must Die actress was a bona fide triple threat, but we wonder now if the lithe trendsetter had supernatural style-predicting powers too among her other talents, as so many of her looks and pieces (cropped tops, leather pants, moto jackets, animal prints, body chains…) are still relevant, even hot, in present day fashion. Today would have been Aaliyah’s 35th birthday, so join us in celebrating the One In A Million singer, actress, and fashion icon. Happy birthday, Aaliyah!

Happy Birthday, Katy Perry!

She’s probably not out kissing girls on her birthday (not that we’d judge), but Katy’s catchy tunes and vibrant style combine to create a super dynamo that we want to party with. Plus, she’s a fellow cat lover (check out Kitty Purry), and we are totally down with that. Today is Katy Perry’s 29th birthday, and we want to celebrate with a gallery full of the kooky-cool, Katy. Click through the pics below, ladies.

Cop some Katy Perry inspired style and jazz up that closet of yours!

Happy Birthday, Will Smith! (Fresh Prince Gallery)

I think we can agree that Will Smith is all that and a bag of chips. So obviously, we couldn’t let his 45th birthday pass by unacknowledged. And what better way to celebrate Will Smith than with some sweet Fresh Prince fashion. Because let’s be real. He was pretty much the king of every awesome 90s trend.

Happy Birthday, Beyonce! (aka: Mrs. Carter, JuJu, Mothe, Bee, Sasha Fierce & Queen B)

You better be reading this from the comfort of your bedroom, backyard hammock, or while sipping on lattes at your local cafe. Basically, anywhere other than work, because ain’t no one should be working right now. How is Beyonce’s birthday not an international holiday? Who do we need to talk to about making that happen?

There’s just too much to say about this angelic diva, and we’d be here all day if we spoke of all the wondrous things that make Beyonce one of our all time favorite people. (Yes, not just musician or artist, but people.) So let’s celebrate this great day with an ode to Mrs. Carter via photo gallery. And don’t forget to scroll beyond the collection of Beowolf images to find a collage of GoJane pieces that we just knooooow Beyonce would love!

Happy Birthday, Coco Chanel!

Coco Chanel’s classic styles, fierce femininity, and creative voice have been inspiring and keeping women well dressed for years.

So happy birthday, Chanel! Thank you for always reminding us to be classy and fabulous.

Style Crush: Robyn

She’s sassy, honest, and not afraid to dance on her own, and we love her all the more for it. Robyn has super unique style and her short platinum ‘do is ever present as a signature touch. Plus, the girl can rock flatform shoes like no other. Scroll through the gallery to peep her style, pick up some ideas, and check out GoJane’s Robyn inspired ensemble.

Happy Birthday, Janet Jackson!

More like Happy Birthday, Miss Jackson (’cause we’re nasty)! We love us some J.J. She’s the sole reason we stayed fit in highschool. How so? We spent countless, sweaty hours trying to learn the moves to all of her music videos. One of our all-time faves? “IF” circa 1993. And 20 years later, we’re still working on perfecting those crazy, sexy moves. Yeah, there’s a lot to say about Janet and her “controversial” life, but we’re not going there. We just want to celebrate her awesomeness by watching  some Poetic Justice, eating a bowl of popcorn with Tabasco sauce, and maybe popping out a boobie just for the heck of it. We love you Janet and we hope you have the best birthday ever!

Happy Birthday, Bianca Jagger!

We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again. WE SHOULD HAVE BEEN ALIVE IN THE 70s! Why? Because we just know we would’ve run deep with amazing women like Bianca Jagger. Friday nights at Studio 54, house parties at Halston’s pad, impromptu muse sessions for Andy Warhol, gallivanting around the world with Mick Jagger and The Rolling Stones in errrthang Yves Saint Laurent… all things we would have been great at. We love Bianca, and we’re totes jelly of her exotic beauty, highfalutin life, eclectic friends, and most of all, her totally kickass style! Cheers to Bianca and her trendsetting ways. We’ll never do a white suit or loungy jumpsuit the kind of justice you did, but we’ll definitely die trying. Happy Birthday, Bianca Jagger. Thanks for all the style inspiration.

Shop GoJane for Bianca-inspired styles like jumpsuits, hats & (faux) furs.

What other 70s style icon do you love?

Happy Birthday, Jessie J!

Jessie J is pretty much the epitome of cool. Not only can the girl sing (and we mean sing), she also manages to effortlessly go from Hollywood glam to rocker chick in a matter of minutes. Or maybe hours. Plus, she recently shaved her head for charity. How many celebrities would give up their locks to fight poverty and social injustice? We’re thinking not too many. Oh, and remember when she performed with a broken leg? Yeah, she totally rocks our socks off. So happy 25th birthday, Jessie J! We’ll leave the birthday tune to you.

Happy Birthday, Kat Von D

True story: one of the GoJane writers’ mom had Kat Von D as a student in the eighth grade. And while Kat didn’t have any tats at the tender age of thirteen, she did have plenty of talent. We guess it shouldn’t shock us that the now famous tattoo artist showed plenty of promise at an age when most of us were more concerned with pizza than careers. Anyways, happy birthday birthday, Kat Von D!

Happy Birthday, Ke$ha

With plenty of tracks guaranteed to get the party pumpin’, along with an aesthetic based almost entirely on the idea that the more glitter, the better, Ke$ha is the kind of girl we’d totally want to party with. Plus, we think she’d be rad to spend the day with scavenging our local thrift shops for leather jackets and bodysuits reminiscent of Jane Fonda circa 1983. Today is the songstress’s 26th birthday and as such, we’re celebrating with tons of photos.


Are you a Ke$ha fan?

PS: Did anyone see the most recent episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race? One of the contestants dressed up as Ke$ha- that’s some serious cultural legitimacy, ya’ll.

Happy Birthday, Drew Barrymore!

She’s been a hard drinking, chain smoking Lolita, a fairy tale princess, a victim of high school bullying and a hopeless romantic with short-term memory loss- whoa, this girl has done it all! Drew Barrymore is one of the most iconic stars of our generation and we’re hoping to see her super sweet disposition and wide range of personalities win over the next crop of angsty teenage girls. Happy 37th birthday, Drew! GoJane loves you!

What is your favorite Drew Barrymore movie?

Happy Birthday, Rihanna!

Rihanna is easily one of our favorite celebrity style chameleons. She can rock the heck out of a girly gown with classic hair and makeup, then go grunge with denim, leather, and a fauxhawk the next day. And she makes it all look good. Not to mention her ever-growing list of amazing hit songs! So happy quarter of a century, RiRi! And cheers to many more iconic style moments and albums to come.

Happy Birthday, Alicia Keys!

If you looked up the definition of cool in the dictionary, you’d probably find a picture of Alicia Keys. The singer/songwriter has had us hooked on her catchy melodies, empowering lyrics, and fashion-forward sense of style for years. Needless to say, we were pretty excited to hear that she’ll be singing the National Anthem at the Super Bowl this year.

So happy 32nd birthday, Alicia! Here’s to 32 more years of amazing performances and smooth style.

Happy Birthday, Michelle Obama

With her penchant for bold hues and flirty prints, Michelle Obama is a modern day fashion icon. At 49, the FLOTUS still manages to impress us on the daily, and we love how she’s always willing to wear her fave looks repeatedly. Anyways, happy birthday, Michelle Obama!

Want in on Michelle Obama’s awesome sense of style? We suggest shimmying into a sheath dress and a pair of classic pumps

Happy Birthday, Kate Moss!

Today, Kate Moss is celebrating her 39th birthday. Although looking at her, you’d never know it. Here’s to many more years of style and beauty from one of our all-time favorite models!

Shop for Kate’s famous leather moto jacket or button-up looks on the GoJane site.

Happy Birthday, Katy Perry

With her penchant for candy hued locks, princess-inspired frocks, and  vintage pieces, Katy Perry has taken both the world of music and fashion by storm. Today is Perry’s birthday and we figured showing off her signature style would be a pretty sweet way to celebrate.








What do you guys think? Are you a fan of Katy?

PS: One of the main Katy Perry essentials is glitter– lots and lots of glitter (including glitter eyeliner).
