Lauren Collier, 29, may have been at 1st Mariner Arena to see country music star Miranda Lambert. But the Arlington, Va., resident shows her own star quality in a taupe tunic with bronze beaded shoulders from Forever 21 and a coffee rushed tulip jersey skirt from victoriassecret.com -- not to mention the distressed brown leather cowboy boots she picked up in Nashville, Tenn. She purchased her metallic gold wristlet at the Coach outlet. Her bronze beaded teardrop earrings were a Charming Charlie find. For this General Dynamics business development manager, it all adds up to a style that's "a little glam country." One of her fashion rules was something Collier may have adopted when she was first runner-up in the 2007 Miss Virginia contest. "I think sparkles are essential for almost every outfit."
