Mini-Idol: Desiree Rogers

Thanks to Jezebel, I found this amazing woman, who is going to be the next White House Social Secretary. The Wellesley Alum, class of '81, currently is the President of Social Networking for Allstate. The pic above is her at the Ravinia music festival, outside of Chicago. I couldn't find too many public pictures of her, but I can't wait to see more of her, and more awesome fashion like that multicolored floaty dress!

Jezebel writes that at the White House, Rogers will be:
"In charge of everything about every public event the President and First Lady do — from state dinners to the Easter Egg Roll to the Christmas parties and everything in between...She's got to know every bit of protocol for every state dinner; make every guest list and every seating chart; coordinate security; choose menus; find entertainment; and satisfy every single person involved."

Sounds kind of amazing, and very nerve wracking.

She also rocks a suit like nobody else.

I was totally going to pick Rihanna as the next StyleIdol, and then I saw her perform Rehab on the American Music Awards tonight. WTF? She was wearing this crazy studded cape and dominatrix-like jumpsuit (which I guess is her signature) with a rhinestone eye patch. An eye patch? Seriously? I don't know, but sometimes she hits it just right, and sometimes she's a crazy space-age pirate. But I'm still going to pick her, because despite the video below, she is pretty hot, in a very modern, current, youthful way. And her music gets stuck in my head too.

Her silhouette is pretty gorgeous on stage though her outfit may not be.

But I really love her style in the Rehab video featuring JT. It is so hot, with those red lips, and JT is pretty damn hot too.

This is last year at the AMAs. Kinda kooky too.

And sure, she's been mistaken for Prince, but she is pretty stylish and feminine sometimes too! (Pics from Jezebel)

I just love that green, and her silhouette is gorgeous and classic.Fun skirt!
I like the way she does the high waisted pants. And that dog doesn't even look like a real dog.

Pushing Daisies Effectively Cancelled

Despite professing my undying love for everything Pushing Daisies (and specifically Anna Friel), ABC has decided not to extend the show past its 13 episodes this season. I am terribly sad that I will not get to watch any more of my favorite show, and not get to see what delicious outfits Chuck wears each week. Tear.

Look, Ned is sad too.

Gorgeous Pushing Daisies Evening Gown

I'm posting again about Pushing Daisies! I just watched yesterday's episode, and Chuck is wearing a gorgeous evening gown. I didn't find any good pictures of it, so its in the video. If you don't know, Chuck is the dark haired woman talking about the BLT.

I Kissed a Girl and I Liked It

She's been compared to Zooey Deschanel quite, a few times, so the next StyleIdol is Katy Perry! I think Katy is a bit crazier than Zooey, and is a bit more of a costume dresser. Her super catchy sugary pop song, I Kissed A Girl, has been in my head ever since last week when I decided to pick her. Just like her music, she is all pop, all sugar, and always in full color. I think she tried to channel Lolita in a few of her outfits (which I almost just called costumes, because they kinda seem more like that than outfits), especially the ones having to do with her One of the Boys album.
Those are all so 1940's innocent glamorous, high waisted shorts, and sweetheart necklines.

Her performance and red carpet outfits are a bit less characterized, and a more realistic.
I love the all pink!She almost looks like Dita Von Teese in the pic above. Might just be the lots of cleavage. I love the pink ruffles though!

This is pretty '80's, but I weirdly like it. Not on me, and not on really anyone else but her!

Zooey Deschanel

So I know Zooey Deschanel from Will Farrell's movie, Elf, more than anything else (she's also in Almost Famous and The Good Girl), but I didn't know until recently that she is part of an indie band called She and Him. Her style, like most of the StyleIdols here, is classic, slightly traditional, with a bit of funk and edginess. I'm so glad I just found out about her. Her quirkiness is endearing, and style inspiring.

I don't know much about her music, but I've heard a few sound bites, and it sounds pretty awesome. Even her voice is old school and sultry, just like her look.
(Another beehive hairdo? It sure is cute.)

Here's a video clip of She and Him's Why Do You Let Me Stay Here. Its a little absurd.

Appropriately dressed at an Alice in Wonderland opening.

What beautiful eyes!
Performing.... Also, I love that dress. Especially the color. And the flower in her hair. I just like everything!

Also! Her sister is Emily Deschanel, the actress in the TV show Bones. Can't you see the resemblance?
