Let’s begin with this mirror-ball number. High-waisted white pants and a reflective bra would have been diva enough, but with the added shoulder accessory, she was in business.
Profile for Lauren Panariello
Sometimes we feel like Us Weekly‘s “The Fashion Police” and other similar style critics can be a tad harsh. Also, they tend to have these really boring, conservative styles and we have to wonder what their real fashion credentials are. (Case in point: US Weekly‘s “Top Cops” include random comedian Stefanie Novik and Chet Cannon of “The Real World, Brooklyn.” When did they ever go to design school!?) The Fashion Peacekeepers are here to say, hey, can’t everyone’s styles just get along?
Fashion police, show us your badges. Ashley Olsen showed up to the Art of Elysium Gala in Los Angeles in this stunning Alexander McQueen gown and Manolo Blahnik heels. While the “experts” on the Fashion Police at E! consider this ultra bang on-trend look a fashion faux pas, we think she looks devilishly chic. Dark, raspberry lips are so in right now, and look especially fresh and elegant when paired with peachy-nude frocks. We think she hit the mark in this getup. Keep reading »
Kanye West has done the impossible: made himself look like a bigger tool than we already thought he was. Mr. West and on-again girlfriend Amber Rose wore these tack-tastic fur frocks to a Louis Vuitton fashion show in Paris. Never mind the fact that she looks like Chewbacca’s first cousin, he needs to meet the inside of a bucket of red paint. Eh, looks like Taylor Swift’s getting the last laugh.

Among the plethora of relationship self help books that line an entire shelf of my best friend’s apartment, sits The Manual ($10.04 at Amazon). After scanning the table of contents and sifting through the pages, I came across one piece of advice that I had to take a second look at: Dress to men’s fantasies, and do it subtly. Could this be the reason I was still single? Because I didn’t look like a naughty librarian or a French maid when I went out? I decided to put this hypothesis to the test. I spent five nights in adult dress-up, playing to every guy’s porn-worthy pipe dreams. Keep reading »

The sister act behind Rodarte allowed the mag to tail them during their fall 2009 creative process and uncover some personal peculiarities in the process. Check out the 10 things you must know about the Mulleavy sisters after the jump. [The New Yorker] Keep reading »
Air New Zealand is redefining the term “high fashion.” This pink Trelise Cooper frock will be pushing beverage carts past patrons in 2011. Offended by what some are referring to as the “Barbie uniform,” there has been sharp opposition to the dress. We think any demeaning qualities the design may inspire is overshadowed by the fact that the dress itself is just plain ugly. But alas, pink has, for better or worse, long been a flight attendant staple since the days when they were called stewardesses. Check out more bubblegum flight attendant fashions after the jump.
