Wednesday night in New York City saw a host of events, but a few in particular caught our eye both for their star-studded invite list and the resulting sartorial stylings. From Tara Subkoff’s questionable leather shorts to Shenae Grimes’ absolute trainwreck of an outfit, it was a good night in pictures. Hilary Rhoda and Coco Rocha face-off in fashion wars, Lourdes does the step and repeat in a rocker chic pair of ripped nylons, and Melissa George goes for the double header outfit swap. Enjoy!
The theme for this year’s Met Costume Institute Gala is “American Woman: Fashioning a National Identity” and, appropriately, Gap is the sponsor. Though unarguably one of America’s most quintessential brands, Gap is hardly known for its evening wear. So what will the attendees be wearing?
It’s no secret that Naomi Campbell’s reputation isn’t exactly sparkling. But between those bouts of phone throwing, camera man-assaulting and the you-know-what storm of bad press surrounding a very questionable diamond, things have quickly gone from bad girl to worse. Now with a 40th birthday on the horizon, it seems she’s going on a PR offensive — maybe that guest list was looking a little sparse…
Everybody these days loves a good combat boot: the ruggedness, the laces, and the cracked black leather, all ready to kick the day’s booty. They’re fantastic with ripped jeans or a girly dress. But, as we finally enter spring, our favorite footwear is becoming a little heavy and definitely a little hot. So, as we reluctantly put our Dr. Martens, Fryes, or other military must-haves into storage, our tough tootsies are itching for some air. What’s next?
Even though I may not readily discuss that I watch “The Hills” and know every character arc and plot twist, I have to admit that this final season is one to watch if you’ve never brought yourself to sit through an entire episode. I am not endorsing the show as a revolutionary concept in reality television. What I am interested in is the amazing exploration into self-hatred, body dysmorphic disorder, and addiction to plastic surgery that are the backbone of this show.
Mallis has stepped down from her role as senior vice president at IMG Worldwide Inc. effective tomorrow, and will be promptly starting up Fern Mallis LLC, her own consulting firm.
A few days ago, an angry QVC customer posted a complaint on the company’s website that would turn any mother’s stomach sour. Someone at QVC, the commenter claims, doesn’t care much for seals or for the fact that customers might not want to purchase a pre-used product.
Ever since a supposed image of new-magazine-on-the-block Industrie’s cover featuring model Daria Webowy showed up on a few style sites, the online fashion community has been intrigued. But it looks like Werbowy needs to watch her back — Industrie went in a decidedly different direction.
Perfume junkies like me know that a transcendent juice can change your life. There are scents for work, scents for weekends…and then there are those scents that make you want to rip your clothes off and get down to business. Here are four of the best. And they’re not for the faint (or the floral) at heart…
Getting through an airport is never an easy task. But we’d like to see you try to get all the way to your gate wearing a pair of these so-radical-they’re-rad Bin Laden sneakers. Subtle, they most certainly are not.
In fashion, they say inspiration can come from just about anywhere — Japanese horror flicks transform into webby knits and locker room wear becomes a corseted sweatshirt. But Eric Cartman? Not exactly our idea of a muse.
We’re all for raising funds for a good cause but gadzooks!! It looks like someone really, really wants to intern at Vogue. So much so, they’re willing to pay $23,000 for the chance.
We all like a good Donald combover joke, but a joke whilst publicizing his own show, Celebrity Apprentice? Talk about a bad hair day.
If it’s wrong to find yourself in tears at the end of a docu-drama produced by MTV, well, then we don’t want to be right. The second season of “The City” made its epic return to the small screen Tuesday night and with it came Whitney Port’s perfectly honey-colored ombre hair, Oliva Palermo’s over-enunciated Connecticut clip, and the softest side of Kelly Cutrone we’ve ever seen; it was the Mama Wolf’s tears that begat our own. Let’s start at the beginning…
Until the late 90s and early aughts, models and celebrities typically inhabited two separate, if equally glossy, worlds. Then someone — we’re looking at you, Vogue — floated the idea that there was money to be had by opting for familiar, commercial faces over the iconic otherworldly types and designers began tapping well-known actresses — a Scarlett Johansson here, a Sarah Jessica Parker there — for their lucrative campaigns. But now, it seems like the scales have tipped and models have re-staked their campaign claim.
NBC’s reality competition show “The Biggest Loser” is branching out into the activewear market with a new line of workout gear designed by Australian designer Bruno Schiavi.
We’ve been continuously creeped out by the photoshop tendencies of the movie’s posters and now the Japan’s June 2010 issue of Harper’s Bazaar is following suit.
While we’re not always the biggest fans of Lily Allen’s style — in fact, we’re often confused by her over the top, mismatched outfits — other people most certainly are. She impressed Karl Lagerfeld enough with her fashion sense to land her the starring role in Chanel’s Fall 2010 handbag advertisements and now, take a deep breath, Project Runway fans, because a new fashion reality tv show is on its way to the small screen — and this time Ms. Allen is the star.
We’re huge fans of Dita von Teese, which is why we’re super green-eyed over our friends at The Frisky who got to interview the lady last week. von Teese shared some interesting insight on her vintage shopping technique and made us even more green-eyed over the fact that she has an assistant just to handle her clothing collection. She also talked lipstick secrets, designing a clothing line, and her new book on beauty. Herewith, our favorite parts:
A London coroner has closed the investigation into Alexander McQueen’s death and ruled the cause suicide. At a press conference on Wednesday, Dr. Paul Knapman paraphrased McQueen’s suicide note and said, “It was obvious what he intended.”
