blair-waldorf-in-oscar-de-la-renta-chuck-bass-parisIf you think that Leighton Meester wore Blair’s signature headbands off the lot or that Kiernan Shipka slipped a ’60s-era “Mad Men” dress into her bag at the end of the day, think again.

I spoke with Fawnia Soo Hoo, contributing editor of Fashionista.com, about the number one rule of thumb that audiences might not realize, where to find cast-offs from your favorite shows, and more.

Claire Coghlan asked for my thoughts on the legacy left behind by the tragic loss of these two true red carpet fahion and style stars. In remembering Oscar De La Renta and L’Wren Scott we pay tribute to their amazing talents and honor their contributions to the magic of fashion on the red carpet. The online piece (see Variety.com) is a longer version of the print story (above).

Keep up with Claire Coghlan by checking out her blog The Alchemy of Truth and following her on twitter @CoghlanClaire.

I told Cosmo China “Fashion should be original, both a fun and very enjoyable thing.”

eric-daman-cosmo-china-june-2014 To find your own signature style is to embrace fashion in the best way. Fashion is meant to be fun and enjoyed. Its ok to take risks and be inventive along the way. It’s the key to finding your own true style. Shop for your shape. Respect who you are, how you are built, and work with your best assets. Learn to accept them, maximize them, and minimize the rest.”

I told New Zealand’s @coupdemain Magazine “Working on ‘Sex And The City’ was like earning a PHD in costume design…”

Costume designer Eric Daman in the fitting room of 'The Carrie Diaries' in New York City.“Patricia Field pushed the boundaries of style on television with a certain level of embellishment that brought to life a portrayal of character that can only happen through clothing, while Sarah Jessica Parker was a stickler for proper fit, without which a petite actor can be easily gobbled up by her garments.”

STYLE.MTV.COM ASKED ME: “What’s the process like for picking out each outfit for Carrie?”

Carrie has a lot of changes in each episode—averaging about 10. I usually break down the script and categorize by type of change, e.g., "Journaling look," "Interview Office look," or "School look." Each is very different and has different needs.Carrie has a lot of changes in each episode—averaging about 10!
