So Sad: Jennifer Hudson’s Mother and Brother Murdered

In saddening celebrity news, Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson's mother and brother were reportedly found shot to death in their Chicago home Friday afternoon (October 24).

According to breaking reports, the Cook County medical examiner’s office said officials were dispatched to a South Side home where the bodies of a man and a woman were found, with police saying they believe the shooting was a domestic incident.
“Officers responded to a call of two people found unresponsive,” Chicago Police Department spokesman John Mirabelli told Us magazine. “They discovered a male and a female that had sustained fatal gunshot wounds.”

“Right now, our investigation is a double homicide,” the spokesman adds. “We understand family members are on the scene.”

Update: Talking to People magazine, Jennifer’s rep Lisa Kasteler said, “We can confirm that there is an ongoing investigation concerning the deaths of Jennifer Hudson’s mother, Darnell Donerson, and her brother, Jason Hudson. No further comment will be made and the family has asked that their privacy be respected at this difficult time.”
My thoughts and prayers are with you Jennifer and your family.

Top It Off: Vanessa Bruno Folded Panel Top

At first glance what I love about this top has to be it's ethereal, blush tone. It's clean, simple, almost architectural lines are distinctly different from much of whats out there. The cowl neck at the back offers a sexy subdued hint at whats underneath, all while remaining fiercely sophisticated. Mix this blouse with your dark denim skinnys or with black trousers and a black blazer. It's a beautiful, must-have piece.

Party Shoes: Christian Louboutin Satin Platform Sandal

A girl can definitely not have too many shoes and Mr. Louboutin keeps us begging for more. Rich Girl's latest obsession is the red Satin Platform Sandal. This peep-toe with its signature red sole, is layered in beautiful red satin. I love how the layering effect continues down the stiletto, a great detail. While satin is always a holiday/winter favorite for any special occasion, Rich Girl suggests thinking outside the box and toughening these up a bit with black skinny jeans, a dressy top (dark chiffon maybe?), and even a black leather jacket.

Here is a great mini by Forever 21. It's taupe and black plaid print stays youthful in a shorter length. Don't worry, with a pair of black tights your look will stay sophisticated as well. Add a black crew neck tee and a longer cherry red cardigan to punch up your look. Of course, you could always go the classy route with a black turtleneck and pearls a la Blair Waldorf.

Stunning as always, Ms. Jolie covers the new issue of Italian Vanity Fair. Rich Girl favorite Angelina gives us a little peak into her life and discusses her kids and the possibility of getting married. Here's a snippet:
Angelina on why she travels everywhere with her kids: “I want them to be able to walk through a marketplace in Adis Ababa and not bat and eye, not think it is dirty and ugly, but that it just represents another part of the world and humanity.”

Angelina on tying the knot: “Usually people fall in love and everything revolves around the ritual of marriage, children are an afterthought. We did everything backwards. But sooner or later it will be the kids who ask us [to get married]. You know, they see films and start asking questions. Such as, ‘Why are Shrek and Fiona married and you’re not?’

Trend: Cardigans

Gossip Girl style dominates fall's fashion with a plethora of preppy pieces, and noticeably tons of cardigans. A Rich Girl favorite since grade school, cardigans are the perfect layering piece for both style and function. This fall's cardigans come in every shade and print imaginable, from bright fuchsia to polka dots. Adding a cardigan to your wardrobe is a cinch, with cardigans basically complimenting everything. Pair a fun print cardigan over a simple tank and jeans. Add one over a full skirt, or layer a cardigan over a dress. You can also up the fashion quota of your outfit by adding a contrasting skinny belt over a buttoned cardigan. Here's some of the best:
