The Kate Winslet
It’s been said that Kate Winslet, nominated for her role as a concentration camp guard in The Reader, doesn’t really drink, but she has been seen holding a glass of Champagne from time to time. For a cocktail that looks as aristocratic as Winslet does, start with a mixture of London dry gin and red-currant jelly and top it off with dry sparkling wine. Bejewel each glass with a garnish of fresh red currants.
2 Tbsp red-currant jelly
2 oz water (1/4 cup)
4 oz (1/2 cup) London dry gin
1 (750-ml) bottle well-chilled brut Champagne or Prosecco
GARNISH: fresh red currants
• Heat jelly and water in a small saucepan, whisking, until jelly has dissolved. Stir in gin and chill until cold. Divide gin mixture among 6 Champagne flutes, then top with Champagne.

If you have already seen the film Slum Dog Millionaire, you were undoubtedly captivated by the spellbindingly striking elements of Indian culture. Perhaps it was the inspiring romance, perseverance or passion of the characters as depicted in the film that only perpetuated my intrigue.

These contrasting red and gold earrings will add an opulent charm to your ensemble, accessorizing you look with the allure discovered in this epic story and for a mere moment you too can feel like an exotic Indian beauty.
Rebecca Taylor Peasant Dress
After lines are presented at fashion week, depending on the designer, the designs are either taken back to design or are taken straight to product, where they begin to mull over the logistics to make these garments available to the mass market. Therefore, some designers sell a line that is inspired by their runway pieces or, as in the case of Rebecca Taylor, the items you fell in love with at fashion week can be the newest lust-worthy additions to your wardrobe within mere months.
I loved the bohemian feel of Rebecca Taylor’s collection. These hippie inspired pieces captured the laid back chic of summer. Casually airy peasant dresses captured my heart and I knew this particular dress had to be mine. Paired with a studded pair of deep mahogany gladiators and a braided head-wrap you will have the perfectly relaxed look for spring.
