April 12, 2011-
Today, as I was checking in with (on) my BFFWDKI (Best Friend Forever Who Doesn’t Know It…Duh!), otherwise known as Giuliana Rancic, on Twitter, I saw something that delighted me: “@GiulianaRancic ‘Great news! @BillRancic & I just signed on for a new season of Giuliana & Bill. This is the “year of fun” so expect lots of laughs in July:)’ ”
Score! For those of you who didn’t know, I have a slight girl crush on Giuliana…and I don’t get these easily! She’s a girl’s girl….She’s a guy’s girl…She’s got awesome style…She’s geographically desirable (I definitely have dreams of running into her on the streets of Chicago, shoping together at Intermix, calling her “G”, having a martini with her at Cuvee…)…And I know I’m not the only who thinks she’s fab!
But my delight begins to fade, as I think about how far away July is. Can I wait this long to catch up on my fave couple? I guess I have no choice, so until then, I’ll settle for compiling a few of her style secrets, and sharing them with you. Hopefully, this will tide us over until July.
Here’s How You Can Get…
1 – Her Wardrobe: E!’s website is now doing a feature called “Get Giuliana’s Look” which currently features 115 of Giuliana’s best outfits and who designs them. It sort of takes the fun out of hunting the pieces down, but it’s an awesome way to steal her style, and the secrets of her stylist Jose (also Joel McCale’s stylist as an FYI)! I dream of being as hip and chic as her at 38!
2- Her Hair: If you’re like me, then you’re quite possibly more obsessed with Guilana’s ombre extensions then I am with Giuliana. On her blog Fab, Fit, Fun, she let us in to the fact that her genius stylist is Tracey Cunningham at Byron & Tracey in Beverly Hills, while also divulging her other haircare secrets.
3- Her Relationship (or at least some insight into it): One more thing I love? Giuliana and Bill’s book, “I Do, Now What? Secrets, Stories and Advice from a Madly in Love Couple.”I swear….It’s really good, and I wouldn’t normally listen to anyone remotely associated to Hollywood in regards to relationship advice. It is full of great tips on how to make things work from that down-to-earth, fun couple that everyone wants to be. If you’re single, try Giuliana’s “Think Like A Guy: How to Get a Guy by Thinking Like One“. She obviously knows how to get the guy!
Also, if you’ve already read the book, a little fun fact is that after some research and putting some pieces together, I discovered the crazy, cheating, Hollywood ex-boyfriend she she tells a story about is Jerry O’Connell…And the woman in the story is Rebecca Romijn!
4- Her Sense of Humor: Catch an episode of Fashion Police on E!. Giuliana always has something funny to say and good insight on celeb fashion (her father was a master tailor and her sister was the US Sales Rep for Versace). If you don’t care about the fashion, Joan Rivers is insanely funny. If you’re ever in LA, contact the show and catch a taping. I did it, and would definitely do it again. It was hilarious.
5- Her Tan: There’s no denying Giuliana has that golden glow that many of us dream about. Do you ever wonder where she gets it? Check out her favorite tanners on FabFitFun.com.
