“I was crying out for help, because I was going through so much,” she said of the period around the time of the recording, speaking exclusively to WWD on the set of the ad shoot for her scent. “And four million women said, ‘Mary, we’re going through it, too, but you’re helping us by calling on us.’ From that day on, I began speaking truths about my life, and about their lives, and everything around us. So it’s a special tribute to us as women. My fans and I are smart now. We know we’re smart now, but we didn’t know it then. We know we’re beautiful now, we didn’t know it then. We’re educated now, we didn’t know it then. We’re soft, we’re edgy — we’re all those things. And I wanted this perfume to represent every female’s everyday life.”
I do like the sound of that! "My Life" will be sold exclusively on HSN beginning July 31, 2010 and you know it will sell out!! Get yours fast!
TIS: You've always maintained that you like looking your best, both on and off the playground. How do you achieve that?
Rachel Roy: The same way I approach designing. The goal is to offer a combination of classy and edgy pieces and then to be able to easily combine them so as to look effortless. I do a lot of mixed-print dresses and odd color combinations. This gives those classic pieces an edge. Another one of my signature styles is a trench coat/dress, which I can throw on in three minutes and still look pulled together without having to have my best body day going on.
TIS: What would you say are the standouts from your spring collection?
RR: Definitely the air tweed blazer, which is my answer to the tweed blazer (below, left)--so light that it serves more as a cardigan. It's also a no-brainer that goes with everything.
And I'm really feeling the men's blouse (below, right). A woman wearing this silhouette, but cut to her body and maybe with one extra button opened, is so sexy.

Oprah who's also up for grabs isn't doing to bad herself with a bidder dishing out over $23,000 for a meet and great! Ms. DVF may have the best deal in terms of time with a month long internship closing out at $16,000.....$42,500(??)...sigh...at least it's for a good cause;-)

While the photo of Ciara (above) is dated, her look is simple, stylish and chic. If she followed our revised rule then she could loose the jacket. In the case of Alicia and Shaunie however - well - let's just say only the shoes can remain....
So which pick is your favorite? The shirt dress, a summer staple is my personal favorite and not to mention I can use an updated blazer for summer!

My least favorite: Alicia Keys - Work leather in parts only!

BWIF Presents: Your Style
See shots of women like yourself on the streets of New York to Paris. I love how many of the ladies styled an otherwise casual look with a stylish envelope clutch, laced up boots and very funky/beautiful hair! Would you wear any of these looks?
