Catwalk Queen: The Scene: Stars celebrate Lulu Guinness's 20th anniversary, V&A Museum
As gaga as we girls go over a man in uniform, it simply seems fit that we would look just as cute in camo and cargos- actually, cuter. The military inspired look has never been hotter, it's truly a style that's made its way from costume to closet commodity. Dressing in a way that would make Uncle Sam proud has more than just aesthetic benefits -- the added perception of authority from a girl wearing a shirt with stars and stripes insignia. As we've learned from our fellow Americans in the Service, pockets and buttons can be as alluring as they are utilitarian! Although our favorite military jackets don't bode well underneath the blazing sun, throwing on some light long-sleeves at night are a great summer approach to cadet chic when evenings get brisk. Keep the look casual with camouflage and classy with the same tailored, buckled and double-breasted perfection that the military expects of its troops. If you'd rather don a mostly civilian look, brave a short-billed army cap along with your everyday summer fashion. See the slideshow for some sir-yes-sir pieces for this summer's boldest look!

Located in the heart of downtown Louisville, Kentucky is a renovated 19-century tobacco and bourbon warehouse transformed into a thoroughly modern boutique hotel and museum. The 91 room 21c Museum Hotel features large rooms with Malin + Goetz toiletries, preprogrammed iPods and speaker docks, poster art you can take home, and most importantly, free wifi. Dine at Proof on Main for an Italian and American South inspired cuisine and try some (not all!) of the 50 Kentucky bourbons available at the bar. You can also relax in the in-house spa with a sauna, steam room, and gym. Why is it called 21c, you ask? Well, it's North America's first museum solely dedicated collecting and exhibiting 21st century art. The museum is free to the public so you can wander in and look at the 4 foot red penguins, video installations, sculptures, and more. Take a look at my slideshow to see more of 21c!
