Yes, ladies, you read that correctly. Overalls, my all-time favorite trend from the '90s, are making their way back in style. Now, before you get all oh heck no on me, check out the way these celebs have styled their dungarees. Turns out they can work in a bunch of different situations.

For Saturday afternoon with family: Alessandra Ambrosio took hers out for a spin one weekend, pairing them with two layered tank tops. She added classic Ray-Ban Clubmaster sunglasses, a structured shoulder bag and wedge sandals, which gave the look a more mature feel.

If you're going out with girlfriends: Actress Brie Larson hit the Sundance channel premiere of "The Spectacular Now" sporting a pair over coveralls with a silky button-down. She teamed the outfit with beat-up combat boots, but I think a chic pump would have been a wiser move for girls' night out, pushing the style into cool-girl dressy territory.

Date night with your partner: "Revenge"'s Ashley Madekwe attended a Topshop/Topman event in these patterned dungarees from the brand. Simple jewelry, a black clutch and strappy sandals allow her overalls to be the center of attention.

What do gals think? I'm a huge fan of Ashley Madekwe, but who do you feel pulled off the trend the best? Are you inspired to try out overalls? Discuss!

Well, I like these suckers.  Plenty of air flow and I can just reach on down in there and scratch what itches.  Shoulder straps insure they won't fall down no matter how much you overload the pockets.  I can get a hammer in one pocket and a bag of jelly beans in the other.  'Course I don't look as chic as the ladies pictured above.

Umm, coveralls have long sleeves and overalls don't.  I've bought and worn both.  Back in the 70's in NYC lot's of teens - 20ers wore overalls pressed as a fashion statement.  When I worked at my dad's auto shop we all wore coveralls which had long sleeves and buttoned in the front with a collar.

Now they just need to lug a jug of moonshine around with them, or maybe a chaw of tobacky, and all would be complete.

Everyone who is wearing these overalls would look ten times better wearing jeans or long pants. Overalls are not attractive on anyone except a model whom (as I said earlier) would look much better in jeans or long pants.

 

However, if you just want comfort and don't care about looks, go for the overalls!  (And get rid of all the floral pants--they make my eyes hurt.  And it only makes the consumer look that much longer for solid long pants).

I wear mine every weekend. More comfortable than jeans and more pockets for tools! Trend is a bunch of hoooy! Wear what feels good and gets the job done.

    The 10 beauty products every model has in her medicine cabinet

    Models may be pros at walking with authority, wearing clothes well, and looking good doing practically anything—but if there is one thing that exceeds their fashion prowess, it’s their command of the world’s best beauty products. Backstage each season and on set throughout the year, they road test a mind-boggling assortment of mascaras, foundations, hairsprays, and more. Between having their hair teased within an inch of its life, their makeup applied and reapplied a dozen times in a day, and their skin pushed to its absolute limits, it’s safe to say they’ve figured out which are the most gentle, effective, and transformative formulas on the market. From the world’s sexiest (and most healing) lip balm to the original French pharmacy face cream, here are ten beauty products you can find in almost every model’s medicine cabinet.
