Remember when Fox News accused J.Crew‘s Jenna Lyons of encouraging America’s young to disassociate themselves from their gender roles because she painted her son’s toenails pink? Well now the news organization is trying to use the news of her rumored lady lover Courtney Crangi as proof that she has “discomfort with masculinity.” I would like to tell you why that’s bullshit.
On Halloween, the first issue of Style.com’s print magazine will hit newsstands. The magazine features a closeup cover of 17-year-old model Lindsey Wixson, a 23-page photo essay of her shot by rumored boyfriend and publishing progeny Theo Wenner, a comprehensive roundup of the Spring 2012, and a bunch of other fun goodies — but will the web fashion behemoth translate properly to print?
A big congratulations are due to Marc Jacobs and Proenza Schouler‘s Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough, the newest members of the CFDA Board of Directors!
We have a vision of the future, and so too did the fashion-obsessed consumers and designers of the 1950s, whose designs are still with us today. But way back when, they had some pretty kooky ideas of what today’s women would wear on their feet.
Just when we thought some headway was being made with the whole offensive costume situation in this country, we came across the worst costume of all time. Are you going to be a World War II evacuee for Halloween?
So you know how Heidi Klum is fully obsessed with Halloween, and every year she has to have a costume that basically trumps everyone else’s costume as much as it can possibly be trumped? Yeah. Well this year, nothing’s changing.
As long as our favorite retailers keep teaming up with our favorite designers, we can stave off collaboration fatigue just a bit longer. Next up: Mary Katrantzou for Topshop!
If you thought it was dizzying how often Beyonce releases music videos for the songs on her new album 4, you’ll be downright flabbergasted by how often she changes super-high-fashion designer outfits in the video for her song Party.
Kate Middleton attended her very first solo engagement last night, and she looked GREAT.
The fashion industry has been dying to know the identity of the fashionable new woman in J.Crew president and creative director Jenna Lyons‘ love life. And according to reports Thursday morning, that woman is none other than jewelry executive Courtney Crangi.
We have huge girl crushes on a certain kind of Harvard Business School lady graduate. After all, these Ivy League smarties are responsible for some of our favorite fashion and beauty startups. The latest HBS grad on our radar is designer Ammara Yaqub, who debuted her very first collection this fall.
If you were wondering how 17-year-old child bride Courtney Stodden and her creepy older man actor husband Doug Hutchison might defend the abomination of an outfit she wore pumpkin picking over the weekend, wonder no more! The odd couple explained the whole thing to Dr. Drew.
What’s tacky, covered in fur and on sale for millions of dollars? The house that Ed Hardy founder Christian Audigier is selling in Topanga, Calif. for the tidy, tidy sum of $3.299 million. We hate the dining room, but we’re eating StyleDish in it tonight, aling with a recap of the Racked awards and some undeniable proof of Adriana Lima‘s ability to kick your ass. Tuck in!
Al Gore. Bill Clinton. Short shorts. Let the head explosions commence!
Remember how Prince William and Kate Middleton said they wanted to live a low-key life with not that many servants? Well now that we know the extent of some of those servants’ duties, we understand why. A new expose about the British royal family written by one of its former servants details all of the peculiar, unfortunate and downright weird things the royal wardrobe minders have to do every day.
Fashion made out of food may not be the most original of ideas (see here and here, etc), but we’re suckers for it anyway. The latest venture into sartorial gastronomy (we just made that up!) comes courtesy of Dasha Zhukova‘s Garage Magazine.
We’ve had our issues with Cosmpolitan magazine — and its offensively photoshopped magazine covers — in the past, so we’re really, really hoping that the magazine won’t make British singer Adele look like some kind of tarted up fool when she appears on its December cover.
There are many reasons to love Ryan Gosling. He wears onesies, he breaks up street fights, he makes men like Conan go mad, and he even dares to wear the same suit twice without fear or shame. Now, however, there is one reason to top them all: he designs his own leather jackets.
Previously: Jeremiah Brent was hired, fired, and in kind of a jerky move, re-hired at the last minute to set up baby Skylar’s nursery. Oh, and Skylar was born! This week: It’s the season finale! Already?
