You know that saying about love — you know, the classic line from the classic film “The Hot Chick” — that it makes your heart beat faster and slower at the same time? Well, I have intimacy issues, but that’s the kind of feeling I get towards new makeup releases, particularly when not one, but two, of my favorite icons are involved. Let’s get down to it: I’m talking Andy Warhol, artist, socialite, pop culture hero, as the inspiration behind a cosmetic line from makeup innovator and photographer François Nars. The NARS founder and namesake has crafted the brand’s — and the Warhol Foundation’s — largest collaboration, with Andy as its muse. Keep reading »

Style Stealer: Jessica Hart Takes A Stylish City Walk With Puppy Floyd

Jessica Hart is best known in the modeling world for her trademark gap teeth, her laid-back Australian style, and oh, the notorious bar brawl that involved boyfriend Stavros Niachros getting a fist to the face and left friend Prince Pierre Casiraghi with a broken royal jaw. Fun times with models, royals, and Greek shipping heirs! All controversy aside, it’s fair to say that Hart is quite sartorially inclined — in fact, she recently launched a clothing line of her own with New York-based brand Pencey. The model from down under was spotted out and about in Manhattan yesterday taking her Yorkie, Floyd, for a stroll and naturally looked beyond cool while doing so. Temperatures haven’t dropped quite yet, so Jessica is taking advantage of the last days of summer in shorts, sandals, and a loose tee while winking at pre-fall style with leather shorts. This simple, versatile look can be worn well into the next season with the addition of black tights and a pair of boots — let’s steal it! Keep reading »

Must Haves: 10 Watches $150 And Under For Keeping Time In Style

When it comes to watches, my priority is not being on time — in fact, I’ve worn my fair share of broken vintage versions just for the look of them. I can’t be alone, right? (Or am I?) Regardless, I covet the hell out of gorgeous, brutally priced timepieces (whether they’re functioning or not). Rolex? Bulgari? Sign me up. Unfortunately, I don’t have the kind of budget that allows for $30,000 watches. That diamond and sapphire-studded leopard-face Cartier? I can’t have it, even though I want it. Luckily, there’s a world of watches out there, and there are tons that look believably rich, without the rich price tag. Check out my 10 picks for sweet watches at prices that won’t make your heart stop ticking.

Alber Elbaz Is The Best
It's official: the Lanvin designer is the nicest person in fashion. Read More »

In the latest installment of fashion’s never-ending quest to butcher every chaste relic of childhood, Barneys New York has cast beloved Disney characters as this year’s subjects of their famed holiday campaign. They aren’t quite the precious figures you might recall; in fact, the luxury department store has given these familiar faces a bit of a high-fashion makeover. Read: creative director Dennis Freedman put them on the Karl Lagerfeld diet of Diet Coke and human souls.

Freedman said of the change, “The standard Minnie Mouse will not look so good in a Lanvin dress. There was a real moment of silence, because these characters don’t change. I said, ‘If we’re going to make this work, we have to have a 5-foot-11 Minnie,’ and they agreed. When you see Goofy, Minnie and Mickey, they are runway models.” For shame! What would Alber say — and one has to wonder, is Goofy the rumored secret bastard child of John Galliano and Kanye West? [The Gloss]

Will You Be Wearing Matching Lips And Nails This Fall?

Chanel Tries Dada
This new ad campaign for Rouge Allure is very avant-garde. Read More »

So I guess matching your lipstick to your nail polish is kind of a thing now? A bevy of designers, from Giorgio Armani to Zac Posen, walked coordinating shades down the runway last season, but something about its slightly contrived nature led me to believe it was just one of those things that wouldn’t take in the real world. It strikes me as having a very sophisticated Upper East Side vibe, which just doesn’t work for me. And yet ever-tempting brands like Dior and Chanel are giving their seal of approval by launching “twin sets” of nail lacquer and lipstick intended to be worn together, making the matchy-matchy trend a touch more difficult to resist. Are you into it, or do you think this is a look best worn by ladies who lunch? (Shown L-R: Chanel Le Vernis in Infidèle and Rouge Allure Velvet in L’Infidèle; Dior Addict Extreme Lipstick and Vernis Nail Lacquer in Incognito)

Last year’s anti-Semitism scandal saw John Galliano ousted unceremoniously from both Christian Dior and his own eponymous label, but there are two sides to every story, which may have something to do with why the besmirched former creative director is now suing the fashion house for the grand sum of $18.8 million.
