Rebecca Marshall – Her Style in Her Words.

 
 
Rebecca Marshall has had an incredible start to 2012, with a number of exciting projects on the horizon. Last summer Rebecca spent six weeks in Cape Cod and Boston filming “That’s My Boy” with Adam Sandler and Andy Samberg, which hits theaters this Father’s Day Weekend (June 15th, 2012). Rebecca plays the role of Kelly within this ensemble cast that includes Hollywood A-listers Leighton Meester, Susan Sarandon and James Caan.
 
“That’s My Boy” follows the journey of dead-beat dad and foul-mouthed hedonistic playboy (Adam Sandler) who is faced with a bill for back-taxes. He arrives on his straight-laced son##Q##s (Andy Samberg) doorsteps just before his wedding day and everything unfolds.  This fun filled adventure had Rebecca working closely with the producers giving her the confidence to produce the indie sci-fi feature “Life Tracker”

 
 

 
 

Name one regrettable purchase?

One time I was obsessed with these white studded Christian Louboutin shoes and I wanted them so bad that when I found out they didn’t have my size left anywhere I bought them one size smaller.

My fiancé and I were invited, along with two other couples, to participate in an ‘Ultimate Shootout’ with 30 photographers. The other two couples were married and got the chance to dress up in their wedding gowns and suits again but David and I aren’t married yet so our photo shoot was an opportunity to celebrate and document our engagement. “How fun!” was my first thought and…… “what to wear?” was my second. But I knew who to call.

Mens Style: Dressing up isn’t a bad thing

 

Guys, dressing up for a date or party this holiday season does not mean throwing on some khakis and a polo shirt. Standards need to be re-visited and updated to our modern style and fast paced lives. Wearing suits out on the town is a lost part of mens fashion and sorely missed. With the influence of shows like Jersey Shore and young celebrities wearing  jeans and T-shirts, thinking diamond necklaces makes it classy, men have become lazy. Our women still make an effort, they still put on a dress, heels and do their hair and make up. When did Ed Hardy or any similar brands become excepted and for that matter why?

Kate Arriving at Westminster Abbey

 

 

 

 

Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Cambridge arrives with her father to Westminster Abbey wearing her much anticipated Wedding dress.

 

 

It##Q##s the dress seen round the world — the big unveil of the Sarah Burton-designed wedding gown of Kate Middleton, bride of the heir to the British throne, Prince William, was one of the most anxiously anticipated fashion moments in years.

 

 

Kate Middleton has her dress adjusted as she arrives with her father, Michael,at Westminster Abbey before her marriage to Britain##Q##s Prince William. (Suzanne Plunkett/Associated Press) Chosen in January by the new Duchess of Cambridge for her royal wedding to William, now Duke of Cambridge, but a highly guarded secret until Friday, the handmade V-neck, long-sleeved gown from the fashion house of the late British designer Alexander McQueen is made of French Chantilly lace and English Cluny lace throughout the bodice, skirt and underskirt.

 

 

 

The skirt is made of ivory and white satin gazar, and was designed to resemble an opening flower: padded at the hips and flowing out to the floor.The back of the dress was finished with 58 gazar- and organza-covered buttons fastened by loops.Tall and lean, the 29-year-old Kate wore her dark hair in cascading curls, topped with an ivory silk tulle veil trimmed with hand-embroidered flowers.
