Reader Requests:

Obsessed with Cameron’s bag or Gwyneth’s last premiere look? We’ll gladly take requests in the form of a head-to-toe picture of the look you’d like to see recreated. No guarantees, though – sometimes it’s just not possible to find a cheapskate take on a vintage Halston gown or Louboutin’s studded booties.
