Maggie Gyllenhaal stepped out last night in New York to attend a screening of her new film, accompanied by co-stars Viola Davis and Rosie Perez. All the ladies looked great, but Maggie wins fashion gold.
The Guinness Book of World Records’ most expensive pet wedding ever took place July 12 in Manhattan (where else?) at the Jumeirah Essex House Hotel.
New York retailers are taking the incoming of Hurricane Irene very, very seriously, and many of the city’s iconic stores have shut down and boarded up to prepare for the onslaught of rain and possible flooding.
Today’s StyleDish brings us more FNO hype (this time for your nails), lots of obscure fragrances you’ve never heard of (fancy wearing the same scent as Angelina Jolie?), and Judith Lieber handbags as goody bags — if you’re one of Kim Kardashian’s bridesmaids, that is. Also, a lustworthy accessory that will break both your wallet and your willpower.
The final installment of Harry Potter bowed tonight in New York City and breakout star turned fashion plate Emma Watson stepped out in a bronze, corseted creation by Bottega Veneta.
Rachel McAdams, how we’ve missed her! The actress (and fellow Canadian!) stepped out in New York for the premiere of her new film, What’s The Story Morning Glory? co-starring Harrison Ford and Diane Keaton. And McAdams, in typical McAdams form, lit up the red carpet in a ruched, gunmetal grey dress paired with strappy heels and an arm full of jewels.
We read through a lot of fashion news on a daily basis and, we’ll be honest, we don’t always have time to give everything a thorough perusal. So yesterday, when we kept seeing mentions of cats, and fashion, and shows, we sort of thought nothing of it and figured it was probably all stemming from one of Urlesque’s trademark cat posts. Well, how wrong we were.
For some reason, we can’t seem to wrap our heads around the fact that some people in the Kardashian family actually work. Too many years of The Hills and The City have inured us to the idea that reality television shows are not real — the jobs included. But it seems like the Kardashians — Khloe and Kourtney, in particular — may be the exception. The latter was spotted in New York’s ultra-expensive Meatpacking District scouting locations for an NYC outpost of their clothing store, Dash.
Talk about an early celebration! Just around the time most people settle into their offices, employees and onlookers at the Forever 21 Time Square mega store anxiously surrounded the ribbon ceremony for today’s grand opening. So, what’s inside?
Photographer Terry Richardson is one of fashion’s most provocative players and it’s no wonder why the constant controversies surrounding him make the 44-year-old no stranger to our newsfeed. This time, he returns to W magazine after his rumored 14-year ban from the publication with a surprisingly tasteful 17-shot editorial for the July 2010 issue — which just so happens to be the premiere issue for new editor-in-chief Stefano Tonchi.
Donna Karan’s latest marketing move may seem a little out of left field, but if there’s one brand more iconically New York than DKNY, it’s the Yankees. WWD reports that DKNY has just signed a long-term and multi-dimensional sponsorship deal with the reigning World Champions of baseball.
For the last two days, breathless New York-based bloggers (ourselves included!) have been following the Internet’s every update of Karl Lagerfeld’s presence in the city. And now, the piece de resistance comes via Nitro:licious: video of the Kaiser himself, first being lowered in a bucket crane and then, well, walking around and doing what one does on a photoshoot. It’s mesmerizing.
