Profile for Rachel Krause
Kristen Stewart is all over the place right now promoting “Breaking Dawn: Part 2,” and given her newly minted sartorial risk-taker status (seriously, girlfriend is really going for it these days), we are just full of trampire fashion fodder. (I say that in an endearing way. J’aime K. Stew.) Her latest look is this chromed highlighter yellow Dior minidress — it hasn’t appeared on the runway, which is all the proof we need to believe that Raf Simons cut this especially for Kristen. Roughly translated into plain English from fashion world vernacular: “You are a big fucking deal.” The “Twilight” starlet finished off the neon look with a pair of patterned black-and-white pumps, complete with spiked ankle straps (which, it’s worth noting, she loved so much she wore them to a Spanish talk show appearance earlier in the day). Personally, I’m erring on the side of this look being so wrong it’s right. What say you?
The dress Kate Moss chose to wear for the launch of “Kate: The Kate Moss Book,” a book about Kate Moss, doesn’t really make much sense, but she could probably wear, like, the most appalling Liberace get-up and women all around the world would be like, “Need.” I guess you can wear whatever the hell you want when you’re a grungy 5’7″ girl from Croydon with crooked teeth who became one of the most universally recognizable (and loved) faces of all time. Oh, and on top of this whole book situation, there’s also going to be a Kate Moss documentary! Two decades after her modeling debut, Ms. Moss is still killing it, and is it any wonder why? Er, I may be slightly biased. Just slightly.
No wonder Liz Lemon is getting hitched! I mean, wouldn’t you want to put a ring on it? Real talk: Tina has never looked better.
We’re reaching the point of the year wherein I refuse to leave my bed at any and all costs because it is so damn cold. There unfortunately aren’t too many upsides to late fall as far as I’m concerned, aside from pretty scarves, outerwear, and, like, wool tights, but none of these things are enough to get me out from under the comforter every morning. But do you know what is? Eyeshadow! I pretty much forget about the stuff when the temperature rises above 50 degrees, because no matter how much primer I slap on or powder I dust on top, it is going to be dripping down my sorry face in a few minutes time.
With the most bloody of celebrations (yay, Thanksgiving!) on deck, I’ve been searching for inspiration to fuel a festive fall eye, and I finally found it in Kristen Stewart‘s gilded take on a smoky eye. She paired it with a gorgeous, quite revealing gown, but this look is equally suited to your Thanksgiving best, even if your Thanksgiving best happens to be your best pair of sweatpants. Find out how to get Kristen’s look, after the jump! Keep reading »
We’ve long been obsessed with leather (or faux-leather) pieces for fall and winter — there’s no other material in the world that has quite the same edgy, effortless downtown appeal. Plus, it’s warm! A pleated black leather skirt is the perfect versatile accoutrement for the season’s wardrobe. It can go cute and casual with a pair of flats and a T-shirt, or you can dress it up with a collared silk blouse for work or play. We’ve put together three foolproof looks, complete with styling tips, after the jump. Keep reading »
Today in NOOOOOOOO: Chris Brown, singer or something and otherwise all-around spawn of Satan, has been signed to the artist management division of Wilhelmina International, the modeling agency representing such popular faces as supermodel Coco Rocha, plus-size star Robyn Lawley, and, uh, Kendall Jenner. The highly-regarded agency will seek to score fashion and beauty endorsements and licenses for the infamous pop star. (Is he a pop star? Seriously, I have no clue. I’ve never heard any of his songs besides “Birthday Cake,” which is an insult to humanity and also people with ears all over the world.) I wonder how that ill-advised neck tattoo of a horribly battered woman will play into his modeling career? In the most basic of terms: fucking gag. [WWD]
I inexplicably fall more in love with Kristen Stewart with each passing day (I know, I know, I’m still coming to terms with it myself), but that still doesn’t mean I want to look at her bellybutton. Maybe it’s her surprisingly deft post-scandal rebound or the end of the “Twilight” series, but between her nude (like, actually nude) gown and this bellbottom jumpsuit mess (also courtesy of Zuhair Muhad), Kristen is all like, “LOOK AT MY BODY, BITCHES.” I think the baroque black lace is incredibly beautiful (though, yes, a bit “Twilight” On Ice), but it all goes downhill from, um, there down. This whole look is kind of appalling, but with that said, Kristen is young, beautiful, and all willowy-limbed and stuff, so I am going to let the girl have her transparent bodysuits without criticism. For the most part.
The annual Glamour Women of the Year Awards honors outstanding women in all fields, from politics and philanthropy to athletics and entertainment. This year’s ceremony saw gold-medal Olympians, musicians, designers, and — ahem — a voice of a generation, all decked out in some formidable fashion. Let’s see who did it best (and worst) at the event…
“Breaking Dawn: Part 2,” the final installment in the “Twilight” saga, premiered last night, and everything seems to be going just swimmingly: Rob and Kristen posed arm in arm, Kristen’s overall demeanor closely resembled mine when I get blood drawn except way more naked, and there were tons of randos and a few dogs. Awesome! Let’s check out some photos from the event, shall we?
