Ever since we fell in love with Daisy Lowe (it was love at first sight, there was nothing we could do), we’ve known that she doesn’t have a body like one of the 15 year olds you see strutting down the runway so often. She’s a woman and her body looks like she’s a woman. But despite getting paid to be absurdly beautiful all day long, Lowe’s self-esteem suffered a serious blow recently when she saw pictures of herself on vacation in tabloids.
Someone must really have a thing for Madonna; this is the fourth time unretouched images of her have leaked — this year! This time, the images are from the Queen of Pop’s recent ad campaign for Dolce & Gabbana, and while the differences pre- and post-production are certainly startling, we can’t help but wish the design duo had gone with the originals.
A woman after my own heart, Carrie Bradshaw once told her friend Charlotte that she had no fear of heights, as evidenced by her shoes. Seeing that elevation is the first characteristic I notice in my own footwear—closely followed by material and comfort level—it is no wonder that I have appointed Chloé’s Enola Two Toned [...]
Paris Fashion Week kicks off today and in honor of the fact that we’re currently at our desks and not getting ready for Carine Roitfeld’s masquerade ball, we thought we’d take a look back at what fashion week looked like in 1993. Behold: Karl Lagerfeld‘s Fall / Winter collection for Chanel, featuring Claudia Schiffer, Karen Mulder, Shalom Harlow, and what we’re pretty sure is Kate Moss‘ runway debut. She looks so adorably serious!
Vogue Paris is celebrating its 90th anniversary issue this October, and naturally editor Carine Roitfeld has pulled out all the stops. But while we normally applaud Roitfeld’s riskiness, we suspect this editorial — shot by Terry Richardson and starring plus-size ambassador Crystal Renn — may be her most provocative and possibly offensive yet.
Brad Goreski, style director for celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe, has announced that he will be leaving Zoe’s company, effective Oct. 1.
Four Australian women broke the Guinness world record for running in heels yesterday. Shamelessly, we took our loafers off as soon as we got home.
Roberto Cavalli has been designing clothes for decades, but his sheer, shiny, fringed 40th anniversary collection shows not one sign of age — an uninformed admirer of the clothes would be easily forgiven for thinking that they were the work of a much younger man. Also, you’ll never guess what he paid just one of the models.
Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz are in Japan right now celebrating the premiere of their action flick “Knight and Day.” And while we’re kind of digging his casual red carpet style (jeans!), we couldn’t help but notice that in spite of their natural height differential and the fact that Diaz is wearing what appear to be four-inch heels, Cruise isn’t coming up more than an inch or two shorter than her. What’s the deal?
As any good design geek knows, Pantone is the authority on all things color. And every season Pantone releases a fashion color report after the New York collections are shown. For spring 2011, Pantone drew from designers like Peter Som, Rebecca Taylor and Tibi to find the 10 colors that best represent the season.
We’ve seen it a million times: a good man ruined by a bad hairstyle. We just never thought we’d see Tom Brady ruined at the hands of one of the world’s biggest models, Gisele.
Sarah Burton has big shoes to fill. Really big lobster claw-shaped shoes. In May Burton was named Alexander McQueen‘s successor as creative director of his eponymous house. Burton’s first solo show for McQueen occurred in June during Milan Men’s Fashion Week. The show was well-received, but Burton’s true test will come next Tuesday as she debuts her first women’s show for the Alexander McQueen label.
Word has it that Style.com, the erstwhile online home of Vogue and W, is working on a reality show. But instead of the scripted fakeness introduced by Teen Vogue on The Hills and perfected by Elle on The City, it’s said that the Style.com show will feature people who actually work at the magazine.
Okay, Jane Aldridge, we get it. You like shoes. Really amazing shoes. We appreciate your sense of style, but sometimes we think you lack an awareness of it all.
Opening Ceremony is the coolest, and by extension, its owners Humberto Leon and Carol Lim are the coolest. They make an appearance in New York Magazine‘s entirely delightful “Who Runs New York?” power issue, and we’re here to break down what exactly makes them so awesome.
With the help of our best friend Rachel Zoe, we’re giving away a lipstick made of rubies, a foundation that has gold in it, and a perfume with a pedigree better than most members of the French nobility. Wanna know how you can win these glorious goodies from Guerlain? Find out how after the jump.
As the newly appointed accessories designer for the house of Missoni, Margherita Missoni—the youngest ambassador of the fashion family—has created a colorful five-piece collection of handbags. Today’s TZR pick, the “LSD” Bag is just one-fifth of the signature zigzag printed set. Do you die?
Today, we’re proud (and a little disgusted) to bring you two particularly bad examples of digital photo butchering, both from beauty companies whose ad departments apparently hate women’s legs.
Oof, talk about wanting a do-over. Australia’s Next Top Model Cycle 6 held a live finale Tuesday night, where host Sarah Murdoch unveiled the winner to both the audience and show’s viewers on live television. Unfortunately, for the winner, the loser, and Murdoch, she accidentally announced the wrong one — and took a few minutes to realize it.
