Celebrities are good for a lot of things: entertainment, gossip, and — our personal favorite — style. Hollywood’s elite have the opportunity to wear some of the chicest, most beautiful, and most expensive clothing in the known-universe, allowing them not only to showcase trends, but also create them. So when we noticed that celebrity after celebrity was spotted sporting a feminized take on cap toe shoes, we realized we had a footwear frenzy on our hands.
Is American Apparel ever not being sued? In this week’s edition of who the clothing company has pissed off, we have Christopher Renfro, an African American man and former American Apparel employee who began working with the company in 2006 and ultimately sued in 2008 for racial discrimination. Renfro alleged that his supervisor, Sean Alonzo, repeatedly referred to him with the racial slur “nigger.” And we thought Dov Charney saying that he loves “sluts” was bad enough.
Who wears short skirts? Not us, especially not after Paris Haute Couture Week‘s overwhelming display of below-the-knee silhouettes. From Jean Paul Gaultier to Armani Prive to Chanel, shrouded legs ran amuck. With the maxi dress’ epic rise to becoming this summer’s most coveted item, longer hemlines are here to stay, making the midi-skirt a trend that has inevitably followed suit.
We admit, we’re pretty trusting of the ingredients in our makeup. As long as we don’t get a weird rash and the product does its job, we’re typically satisfied. It’s not like we’re eating it, right?
What’s next in designer capsule collections? Jason Wu‘s collaboration with Brazilian shoe brand, Melissa. Women’s Wear Daily reports that Taiwanese-born Wu will be releasing two styles in his collaboration with the plastic shoe brand, following in the footsteps of Vivienne Westwood, Jean Paul Gaultier, and Gareth Pugh.
In recent years, leopard-print has seemingly taken over the world. From Sarah Palin’s footwear, to Kate Moss’ living room, to, well, Nicki Minaj’s entire body, leopard rules the animal-print kingdom — or does it? With the meteoric rise to fame of the leopard-print-loving Snooki and her fellow guidettes, leopard has fallen out of favor with the fashion elite, clearing the way for a new animal-print trend: snakeskin.
The Fashion Spot recently revealed its rankings for this year’s “World’s Top Model” and Polish-born Anja Rubik took home the number one spot. Does being the world’s top model also make her its most influential?
Remember when wearing a see-through dress was a fashion faux-pas? Those days are long gone now that transparency is one of this season’s hottest — and most revealing — trends.
Only Karl Lagerfeld could convince two of the most fiercely independent fashion stars to abandon their personas and adopt each other’s. Lagerfeld photographed his longtime friend Daphne Guinness and personal and professional muse Amanda Harlech for the upcoming issue of V Magazine.
The 4th of July weekend is right around the corner, meaning that beach fiestas and firework festivities are only a few days away. Before you can frolic away to your cocktail-sipping fantasies, though, you have to do one thing: pack.
We’re all about multi-tasking, which is why we think the scarf might just be the world’s most versatile accessory. You can wear it as a hair-tie, a belt, a shawl, or even a top and either way you’ll look chic and effortless. But the best scarves add some printed panache with their drapey flair, which is why we rounded up our five favorites to share with you — and offered up our thoughts on how to style them.
Colorblocking is undeniably one of this season’s most popular trends. A descendant of last year’s minimalist look, colorblocking amplifies simplicity with loud, vibrant colors.
American Apparel may be (temporarily) in the clear after a group of Canadian investors bought $15.2 million worth of company shares last month, but it’s still deep in debt and recovering from losing a whopping $86.3 million in 2010 alone.
Given that the future of his company is bleak at best, it seems counterintuitive that Dov Charney, the company’s chairman, CEO, and principal shareholder, was noticeably absent from American Apparel’s shareholder meeting on Tuesday.
University of New Mexico football player DeShon Marman refused to pull up his saggy pants on a US Airways flight from San Francisco to Phoenix last week. Marman (clearly opposed to pulling up his pants) and the flight crew (apparently offended by his lack of a belt) proceeded to engage in an altercation before Marman was arrested for trespassing at the request of the plane’s captain.
It’s been a while since meat broke into the fashion scene with Lady Gaga’s raw-some meat dress, and here’s its long-awaited comeback. Linus Morales directed meat from all cuts of life — along with a lone slice of bread — in his Fabulous Food series featured on TrendLand. Sausages posed to mimic the Chanel logo, a Gucci-branded T-Bone, Fendi fishsticks, and a Louis Vuitton bread slice, this food is nothing short of fabulous.
We can’t get over how stunningly-strikingly-phenomenally-breathtakingly perfect these images from Viviane Sassen‘s July Dazed & Confused editorial starring model Lisanne de Jong are.
From Anne Hathaway‘s Academy Award tux to fresh-faced Hailee Steinfeld‘s embellished suit, it seems like women just can’t get enough menswear.
It seems like a lifetime ago that Ashton Kutcher was strutting down runways instead of hiding out in trailers “Punk”-ing celebrities and having No Strings Attached with Natalie Portman. But leave it to Ashton to find a way to Punk us all — just when we thought we had him pegged as the ultimate cougar fantasy who enjoys starring in a decent chick-flick from time-to-time, he decides to become a model … or rather, re-decides to become a model.
If there’s two words we never thought would be used in the same sentence, it’s “J.Crew” and the fascinating inspiration behind Eddie Borgo’s CFDA-sponsored capsule collection for the retail giant.
