Look for Less – DVF chain print wrap dress

Any true fashionista would not contest that Diane von Furstenberg is the queen of wrap dresses.  Her signature frock has become a staple piece in women’s wardrobes ever since they debuted in the 70’s.  A versatile wrap dress can go practically anywhere – from work to a party, from the boardroom to a tropical resort.  I’m particularly smitten with the chain print wrap dress in classic black & white as seen on Diane herself below.

Elizabeth Taylor style

For you Liz fans, the Lifetime chanel will be showing a film called Liz & Dick chronicling the relationship of Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton.  We are interested to see Lindsay Lohan’s transformation into Elizabeth Taylor, just the wardrobe alone.  Lohan supposedly had 66 different costume changes for this 80 minute film.  Would you watch the biopic?

Lindsay Lohan stars as the legendary dame Elizabeth Taylor alongside Grant Bowler as celebrated actor Richard Burton in the Lifetime Original Movie Liz & Dick, making its world premiere Sunday, November 25, at 9pm ET on Lifetime.  Based on the true story of the couple’s passionate and tumultuous love affair Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton were Hollywood royalty and their fiery romance — often called “the marriage of the century” — was the most notorious, publicized and celebrated love affair of its day.  http://www.mylifetime.com/movies/liz-and-dick
