We may all want to while away the hours prancing from one sample sale to the next, or loading our virtual shopping carts with an entire season’s worth of new duds. Of course, real life (and even realer bank accounts) get in the way. The Goods, our new curated daily feature, delivers one standout steal hand-selected for your quick and easy shopping pleasure. Today’s find: an Opening Ceremony sweater that practically earns its own frequent flier miles.
Ellen Page isn’t exactly a clothes horse, which is A-OK since Hollywood isn’t exactly in short supply of them, but it’s nice to see her looking cute and (gasp!) cracking a smile on the red carpet. Plus, at last night’s Hollywood premiere of The East, co-star Brit Marling definitely gave us our fix of high fashion and hair envy.
Yesterday’s premiere of French coming-of-age film Jeune and Jolie played host to some of the best gowns we’ve seen out of the Cannes Film Festival so far. It also brought out some of the worst.
Contributing editor at Vogue, editor at large for Numéro Russia, late night talk show host — if it sounds like André Leon Talley has a lot on his plate right now, that’s because, well, he really does. At 63, the front row fixture is taking on a whole slew of new projects, prompting many to speculate that he might be ready to end his 30 year run at Condé Nast. In today’s WWD, however, Talley quashes this rumor and explains his real motivation behind building his resumé.
It’s rare to see stars wear anything from last season, which is why Cate Blanchett looked so refreshing (and not to mention va-va-voom) in Armani Privé from the designer’s spring 2009 collection at the AACTA Awards in Sydney, Australia on Tuesday.
Some actresses may score lucrative deals for the jewels they sport on the red carpet.

The Great Backpack Comeback is well into its third year — and that’s fine with us because as far as we’re concerned, backpacks are here to stay. We know for a fact that Kanye really digs them (a photographic history can be found here), and he’s not alone. Lady Gaga, Jenna Lyons, Rachel Bilson, Suri Cruise, and, of course, the Olsens are just a few of the style stars who have given our case their free-handed seal of approval.
Chelsea Clinton‘s isn’t a face frequently seen in the pages of fashion glossies (at least not since her much buzzed-about wedding in 2010) — let alone in the context of a major, in-depth profile. But Vogue‘s September issue isn’t exactly your average rag, and somewhere in those 917-pages is a lengthy piece by Jonathan Van Meter on that very topic.
Elle isn’t the only magazine that got incredibly lucky with a Katie Holmes cover hitting newsstands just after her big divorce announcement. C Magazine, a California lifestyle glossy, also tapped the actress for their September issue.

Lady Gaga‘s relationship with Giorgio Armani has been well-documented, and it looks like the creative duo is teaming up once again.
Kate Middleton can wear all the Zara she wants to when she’s off the clock, but for big official royal events, the Duchess of Cambridge normally sticks with British designers. Which is why a lot of people turned their heads and raised their eyebrows yesterday when Kate got out of the car wearing a coat dress the palace says is M Missoni.
Jane Birkin is the namesake of one of the world’s most coveted bags — or as she calls it, the “bloody Birkin bag”.
MAC Cosmetics has been killing it with their collaborations lately. Following their insanely successful (and completely sold out) collection by octogenarian style star Iris Apfel, the makeup brand has just announced they will be working with The Gossip frontlady and all around girlcrush Beth Ditto.
Spotted everywhere from the runway at Prabal Garung’s Spring 2012 show to the red carpet as Drew Barrymore showed off her updated tresses, the ombré trend is taking over.
