The tunes used in this fun-loving musical turned out to be as timeless as the clothes she wore. Also, all the Oscar nominations help.
Do you know any summer queens? The kind of girls that hide underneath huge sweaters and sweatshirts and sweatpants, but when summer closes in, watch out! They are rocking sassy summer hairstyles, chic sandals, and cute little sundresses!
