We don’t need to tell you that Gisele Bündchen looks stunning even without an ounce of makeup. But at last night’s private viewing of her series of photographs with BLK DNM founder Johan Lindeberg, she told us why that’s not the only part of going au naturel that she finds refreshing. We also asked her opinion on the epic internet debate of the week over the pronunciation of the word GIF: soft “g” like Gisele, or hard “g” like her sister Gabi (who was also there to fête the project)? Plus, see a GIF from last night’s party and find out the addictive hobby she’s just discovered.
Yesterday afternoon, Parsons The New School for Design held its annual fashion show, which showcases the class of 2013′s final collections and introduces the fashion world to a new crop of talent. Considering that Marc Jacobs and Proenza Schouler’s Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez have participated in the event, we knew we had to keep our eyes peeled for some future CFDA inductees.
You’ve got your bikinis, flip-flops, and sunglasses ready. You’ve found the best bronzer, nail polish, and lipstick to set off your soon-to-be summer glow.

Our wildest dreams have just come true. Finally, after falling in love with Michelle Obama’s risqué prom night look, we have the missing piece to the puzzle: Barack Obama’s prom photo, which surfaced today on TIME. Now, we no longer have to use our imagination to picture the handsome first couple together, during, let’s face it, the most awkward night of high school. However, this discovery has also raised a very important question: who did prom style best?
With Summer just around the corner, we’ve got little white dresses on the brain. And who better to turn to for inspiration than some of the most fashionable famous faces? We’re talking about Jessica Chastain, Isla Fisher, Dianna Agron, Eva Longoria, and Kerry Washington, and the list goes on. The best part of breaking out the LWD is that it’s just so easy to style . . . with just about everything. From a classic white pump to a metallic sandal to a fun pop of color via a crossbody bag, it’s all fair game. Click through to PopSugar Fashion to see how 46 celebrities styled their LWDs, then put your own spin on it.
Oh….my. If Amanda Bynes didn’t like tabloids before, she definitely doesn’t like them now. The cover of this week’s In Touch loudly proclaims “Destroyed by Fame!” and, the real kicker, “First ever photos: Inside her wild home.” Apparently, Bynes invited a pair of photographers over for some late night partying recently, opening up her “drug den” of an apartment for the world to see. Now, she’s on one hell of a rampage (all over her never dull Twitter feed, natch), claiming the photos were faked and lashing out at the “ugly faced black man” who sold them.
Lazy Oaf and Nasty Gal have teamed up to remind us that the ’90s weren’t all about grunge and that fluorescent florals and dizzying prints had their moment far beyond your Lisa Frank stationary.
What do Beyoncé and Miuccia Prada and have in common? Aside from being a couple of our favorite ladies, they’re both on the 2013 edition of the Forbes World’s Most Powerful Women list. The coterie of celebrated figures includes CEOS, politicians, philanthropists, and of course, celebrities. See who right here.
If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, right? That seems to be Riccardo Tisci’s thinking for his fall 2013 Givenchy campaign, which revives last season’s all-in-the-family theme. This time, however, instead of Mariacarla Boscono and her brand new baby, he’s tapped a mother and daughter pair that can both don the line in Carine Roitfeld and Julia Restoin Roitfeld, along with muse Amanda Seyfried, actor Quim Gutiérrez, and models Mariano Ontañon and Dalianah Arekion. Get your first look at the ads right here!

And yet, naturally, all eyes were on her bump.
Fragrance reviews are silly, but sometimes, fragrance marketing is even sillier. What do “playful pastimes” and “nostalgia” really smell like? So from now on, we’ll be crowdsourcing our own fragrance reviews. Read on to find out what our office thought about the latest sample to land on our desk. This week, we’re testing out Bottega Veneta Eau Légère.
Even if you don’t know Lorraine Kirke by name, if you’re a fan of HBO’s Girls (as we most definitely are), you’ve seen her designs play a part in some pivotal scenes. And, of course, there’s the fact that her daughter Jemima stars as the bohemian, intermittently-employed Jessa. Lorraine is the proprietor of Geminola, a treasure trove of a West Village boutique filled with a panoply of her one-of-a-kind clothing and interiors, and she filled us in on her favorite decades to plumb for inspiration, her pretty, vintage-inspired summer collection, and if any of her three daughters wore Geminola to prom. Plus, she shared a family photo of the Kirke clan snapped this Mother’s Day!
We didn’t think the day would ever come, but The Great Gatsby fever that has spread over us is slowly rolling into fatigue. Thankfully, the film’s stars (but not all) seem to have caught wind of this and sported perfectly modern looks for their premiere down under.
Kellie beat tough competitors like Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman to take home the mirrorball in the DWTS’s whopping sixteenth season. But this hasn’t been the only shining moment since Pickler came to fame. She’s won four CMT awards, topped Billboard’s country albums list, and in 2011 she got married to husband Kyle Jacobs. The thing is, her fashion moments haven’t always been quite so shining.
One thing we learned Monday night at Glamour‘s “These Girls” event? Gloria Steinem’s favorite word is “fan-f*cking-tastic”. Another thing we learned? Well, a lot actually, since that was just the first tidbit of wisdom from an evening of hilarious, personal, and poignant monologues by Alexa Chung, Emma Roberts, Zosia Mamet, Dianna Agron, Lucy Punch, and Amy Schumer on being a young woman in today’s crazy world.
New York Fashion Week might be at risk of losing its home once again thanks to a lawsuit being filed against New York City and Lincoln Center. According to The New York Times, residents of the surrounding area, in alliance with environmental groups, claim that Lincoln Center’s commercial purposes limit the public’s access to the adjacent Damrosch Park.
There’s nothing like stark white or a good old fluorescent to set off a summer tan, and it looks like the ladies of the French Riviera have been spending some time at the beach — or at least getting a very good faux glow. In today’s installment of Cannes Film Festival gorgeousness, see Kylie Minogue, Jessica Chastain, Sharon Stone, and a whole bevy of gussied-up models fête Cleopatra, Chopard, Bulgari, and more.
Chances are you’ve seen pictures of Kate Hudson plastered all over Ann Taylor stores for the past couple of months. While Kate is the newest face of the brand, she also designed an exclusive collection for them–which finally arrived in stores and online today.
Fisher channeled Daisy Buchanan in a beaded column gown that looked as if it had been plucked straight from the archives, and Mamet showed up in a pair of separates we kind of want to wear to the office. Who missed the mark?
