Fall must havesfor the season Thigh-high boots

These have become a favorite with many women. Whether it’s a heel or a flat, these boots are comfortable and sleek. They provide a great look and protection from the cold air, day or night.

Leather jackets Leather jackets are a must-have this fall. Making a comeback to the current wardrobe, these jackets now come with more flair and style than ever. Find favorites from leather motorcycle jackets to bright-colored bomber jackets.

Copper tones Designers look to bronze and golds to bring shine to the dull colors of the fall. Gold and bronze tones are a nice pop when it comes to nail polish, shoes and accessories.

Military accents A huge contrast to the latest trends comes from the military style that is increasing in popularity. Boots, pants and jackets are a few favorites that are emerging this fall, with small military accents to provide a tough yet chic look.

Dark denim Dark denim is always flattering. The dark wash is more appropriate for fall, unlike light-colored jeans that tend to wash out your skin tone.

Lace Lace done right can look edgy and eloquent at night and flirty and feminine during the day. For daytime colors stick with tans and pastels. At night go for a black lace.

8

Belted waist The belted waist is a simple way to update and give life to your outfit. You can belt your jacket, dress and long sweaters. This looks gives you a figure under your heavy fall clothing.

9 1

Blazers A sexy and sophisticated look that is easy to wear. Solid white, black and grey blazers are the go-to choices. A blazer is a great key wardrobe piece for a day-to-night look. Pair your blazer with dark skinny denim during the day and a sexy tank top for the night.

Sparkle Before, sequins were worn for special occasions only. Now they are attached to casual daily-wear outfits as well. Sequins are now being added to cardigans and skirts, in a effort to update some older looks. Subtle hints (like adding a broach or decorated sweater) look great but don’t overdo it and look like a disco ball.

Movie Review: “Life as we Know It”

“Gossip Girl Here...”

By Meghan McSloy Copy Editor The much-anticipated movie, “Life as We Know It,” premiered in theaters on Friday, Oct. 8. With the perfect combination of comedy and emotional drama, the movie draws viewers in, making them feel as if they have a personal connection to the characters. The film stars Katherine Heigl, who plays regimented bakery owner Holly Berenson and Josh Duhamel, known as “Messer” throughout the movie, who is an up-and-coming sports director and ladies man. The two, who have absolutely nothing in common besides their best friends, are constantly bumping heads after being set up on a blind date, which ended in the pair vowing to never see each other again. Despite their dislike for one another, the two are forced to constantly spend time together because of their best friends, Peter and Alison Novak. Peter and Messer are inseparable just as Alison and Holly are. The only thing that Holly and Messer have in common is their love for the Novak’s one-yearold daughter, Sophie. Both play a very instrumental role in the life of Sophie and are present for every monumental event in the little girl’s life. The up-beat tone of the movie changes briefly when the Novak’s are killed tragically in a car accident. Overcome with grief, Holly

Josh Duhamel at the premiere of “Life as we Know It,” in New York City Friday, Oct. 8. and Messer face a shocking reality when they are informed that their friends have left dual guardianship to the both of them, forcing them to work out their own issues and come together to raise Sophie. The remainder of the movie deals with the pair trying to work out their personal differences while being attentive parents at the same time. Although the two struggle at first with their own personality conflicts, it is both funny and inspirational to see them come together to better the life of Sophie, who although young, is still grieving the loss of both of her parents. The more time Holly and Messer spend together, the more their

relationships develops. Just when things seem to be going good with the two of them, Messer is forced to make a life-changing decision that puts a strain on the entire family. The timing is bad because Holly is beginning to fall in love with Messer. “Life as we Know It” provides viewers with the perfect combination of comedy and heart-warming scenes along with a few tearjerkers as well. While Heigl plays her typical “can’t get a man” character, her and Duhamel make for a dynamic duo in the movie. Sophie, who is actually played by three triplet sisters, plays a very difficult role bril-

liantly. It is clear that the three little girls who play Sophie have a good connection to the adult actors. Although the majority of the movie is predictable from the previews, it is still a good-quality romantic comedy that is sure to be well liked by all viewing audiences. mjm374@cabrini.edu

One of television’s favorite stars, Paul “DJ Pauly D” Delveccio, is not taking a step away from the MTV hit show “Jersey Shore,” but instead coming out with his very own new show, “Pauly’s Entourage.” DJ Pauly D has already started filming with his road manager, Big Mike, his bodyguard, Jerry, and his best friend, Jason. The show is said to follow Pauly D’s music career as a DJ. It starts out in his hometown in Rhode Island and continues to the permanent filming location in Las Vegas. This will not interfere with filming the “Jersey Shore.”

Step over Ashton Kutcher, Justin Bieber is now taking the lead. Kutcher, host of the retired MTV show “Punk’d,” may be handing off his beloved line “You’ve just been punk’d” to the teen superstar. Sources say the new show will be very similar to Kutcher’s “Punk’d” but it will bring some different aspects to the table. Polls on the internet are asking fans if they think this role would be good for Bieber. “Punk’d” is known for everything from making singer and actor Justin Timberlake cry to showing an enraged side of rapper Jadakiss. skl37@cabrini.edu
