Top 5 Fall 2011 Trends

Polka Dot Dress.The popular colors for fall this year are mustard, rust, purple and the timeless black and white. The trendy styles include jackets and sweaters that are tapered to show off the waist-line as well as polka dot patterns and checks. You will also see oversize coats and maxi-skirts in the most exclusive women’s stores on Fifth Avenue and Rodeo Drive. Here are five fashion trends for 2011.

1. Polka Time. Fall means Oktoberfest in many cities around the world and this year the Beer Barrel Polka isn’t the only one that will be popular. Polka Dots are in. Whether you find them on dresses or a blouse, they have found their way on to many of the runways in New York, Paris and Milan. Top designers like Diane von Furstenberg are using them in a variety of ways to dress up outfits. Something as simple as a black and white polka dot scarf can dress up an outfit to make it look like something off the pages of Glamour Magazine.

2. Mustard. To stick with the Oktoberfest theme, you will want to put some mustard on your bratwurst this fall. One of the top colors for the fall of 2011 is mustard. You can expect to see one of the Olsen twins out on the town this fall in a slim mustard colored jacket from The Row. You might even see Mary Kate or Ashley sporting a mustard colored Day Luze alligator bag from The Row. Don’t want to pay the full Barney’s of New York price? Shop eBay purses for a deal.

3. Maxi-skirts. Put away the minis for the fall, instead maxi-skirts are in. Pleated long skirts were a staple of Fashion Week this year and are being touted as the perfect weekend wear. Dress one up with a sweater and you are ready to hit the town on a Saturday night. Nicole Richie has already been snapped by the paparazzi on the town in maxi-skits from Ella Moss.

4. Oversize Jackets. Fall means a chill in the air and the stylish way to stay warm this October and November will be in an oversize jacket. Camel colored blazers and outerwear were all the rage back when DKNY and the other top brands were rolling out their fall line. Try a camel jacket over a rust colored dress and you will be at the high-end of the fall fashion trend.

5. Black and White. It is so timeless that it almost seems wrong to call black and white a fashion trend but it is once again a big part of the fall line for designers in London and Paris. Whether it is in the polka dot pattern we mentioned earlier or white lace over solid black, these outfits can be worn to work and then right out to happy hour afterwards.

Do you see something in our fashion trends that will work for you? Or, do you have some trendy style ideas for the fall of your own?


Jennifer Morrison chats with Bullz-Eye about “Warrior”

There might be many parallels between director/co-writer Gavin O’Connor’s festival of emotion and creative MMA bloodsport, “Warrior,” and 1976’s “Rocky,” but the character of Tess Conlon as played by Jennifer Morrison is a far cry from the put-upon Adrian Pennino. She’s a woman who is fully secure in her intelligence and beauty who knows what she wants. What she doesn’t want is her husband, Brendan (Joel Edgerton), risking his neck, or her and their children’s future, by getting involved in UFC-style fighting.

Bullz-Eye writer Bob Westal met with Ms. Morrison during the “Warrior” press day at L.A.’s celebrity friendly Four Seasons to discuss the new film in addition to projects past and present. Check out a sample of the interview below and then head over to Bullz-Eye to read the full transcript.

Bullz-Eye: We’re a men’s magazine and obviously MMA cues in pretty closely to our demographic. But your director, Gavin O’Connor, is saying that, after the testing on “Warrior” was done, an executive told him he’d made “a chick flick.” Women are liking this movie.

Jennifer Morrison: I know. Isn’t that crazy?

BE: What do you think about that?

JM: I think there’s any number of elements to it. There’s certainly the appeal of watching manly men be in a film like this. Both Joel and Tom are solid guys who are incredible actors who give incredible performances. You have this opportunity to watch two great men be very manly, which is appealing for women. But within that, it’s such a heartfelt story that really is about family and really is about fighting for family. I think women really do relate to that. It’s sort of an unexpected element.

BE: Right.

JM: The fact that there’s this interesting marriage between Brendan and Tess where you really want to [root] for them and you want them to be together. Yet they have very real problems and a very authentic conflict that’s going on. I’m hoping that part of it is that women really do identify with Tess and how she feels in this circumstance.

BE: You don’t see a lot of, in movies or in real life, people who are high school sweethearts who’ve stayed together.

JM: There’s an appeal to that, for sure. My parents are high school sweethearts. They’ve been together and are still together. So, I’ve witnessed it actually work.

BE: You’ve got a significant role in the film, but your part is not gigantic. How do you create that feeling that these two people have been together a long time.

JM: We were really lucky. Gavin is incredibly collaborative and inclusive in the whole process. We spent about a week with Joel, me and Anthony [Tambakis], one of the writers, just together in a room going over every detail of that marriage. Ultimately, the script changed as we got through those meetings because we would discover something about them that would really inform the way they would actually converse about what was going on, and would add an element to the scene that we didn’t realize was going on before. Gavin gave us about a hundred questions to answer. There were 30 or 40 just for the marriage.
