Iris Frost, the 12-year-old daughter of Jude Law and British actress Sadie Frost, finds herself at the center of some undeserved controversy after she wore a particularly cheeky dress yesterday while sitting front row at Vivienne Westwood. The Peter Pan-collared dress, which her mum said Iris had received as a gift, featured a print of… READ MORE »

While many labels have shifted to favor the avant-garde face, Burberry Prorsum is generally a show at which beauty is held in high priority. The Burberry girl is, after all, inherently pretty in the most natural way. Think spokesmodel for the Body fragrance, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, a woman on whom clothes seem superfluous — just a… READ MORE »

Don’t ask me how, but Vanity Fair and Juicy Couture came together last night to present the 20th anniversary of their Vanities bash, co-hosted by Shailene Woodley. The fête, intended as a pre-Oscars celebration, brought out a pretty random assortment of celebs, and some even more random outfits. Seriously, things were weird. Here’s the (very few) truly… READ MORE »

As if just being the acclaimed equestrian daughter of a Russian fertilizer magnate wasn’t glamorous enough, 22-year-old Ekaterina Rybolovleva is now the owner of the most expensive apartment in the most expensive city in the world. That’s right — her father, Dmitry Rybolovlev, in a sale that shattered Manhattan’s individual property transaction records, parted with… READ MORE »

Lana Del Rey is making big, big strides, if not in the music stratosphere then in the fashion world. Mulberry’s Autumn 2012 collection strode down the runway in London yesterday, and viewers caught the first glimpse of Lana’s new eponymous bag. Yes, that’s right — the brand that coined the ever-lusted-after Alexa, as in Chung,… READ MORE »

It might be too early to file me under “crazy cat lady,” but I suggest you do so anyway, just to be safe. I’m that girl who’s always trying to show everyone photos of my cat. I don’t understand why it’s so weird … she’s really pretty, okay? My lifelong affinity for any and all… READ MORE »

This week, Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week came to a close. In many ways, our fashion future has been foretold — what we saw on runways this past week will directly influence what we wear next fall and winter, whether we purchase the actual designer ready to wear (fat chance) or H&M’s take on the trends. It’s… READ MORE »

I have no idea when it suddenly became socially passable for dudes to leave the house wearing nail polish, but I do know that I want desperately for this trend to go directly back where it came from and die there. Please, I’m begging you. I can stomach — barely — the chipped remnants of… READ MORE »

If you’re a fan of Ari Cohen’s Advanced Style blog, where the photographer features a bevy of fun, fabulous, fashionable older women, you’ll be familiar with Zelda Kaplan, one of the site’s stars. Identifiable by her large sunglasses and a propensity for wearing African-inspired prints, Kaplan had seen the world over, favoring countries such as… READ MORE »

I love Fashion Week, and I love runway show beauty, but not all of it is accessible. It’s not unusual for the makeup at some shows (see: red eyes at 3.1 Phillip Lim) to be utterly ill-advised when taken out of context. I believe that beauty is incredibly personal, and for that reason “runway beauty… READ MORE »

Okay, the jig is up: the mastermind behind J. Crew’s consistent cool and bonafide style savant, Jenna Lyons, is fully aware that her look has become iconic. Why else would the creative director and president of the celebrated American company have sent a veritable mini-me boasting her own trademark groomed hair, thick dark-rimmed glasses, and… READ MORE »

Will we ever hear the end of Lana del Rey? She’s been suspiciously absent from Fashion Week, and I thought for sure that her “Saturday Night Live” performance would finish the singer off for good, but the past few weeks have proven me wrong: not only has she landed a Vogue UK cover, but there’s… READ MORE »

I’m too young to remember Angelina in the age of Billy Bob [Sigh. — Editor], but of course I’ve heard the legends: the tattoos, the tumultuous relationship, the blood vial necklaces. As if anyone needs to be reminded, before Angelina was an altruistic philanthropist, she was the baddest of bad girls, and Billy Bob Thornton only… READ MORE »

It’s February already? Fashion weeks are fast approaching, that’s for sure, and New York is the first up as always, with shows beginning on Thursday. Regretfully, one brand us Manhattanites don’t usually hear much from is Miu Miu, which shows in Paris. This year, though, things are different. How different, you ask? Well, we still… READ MORE »

Contrary to popular belief, all mascaras are not made equal. Case in point: Diorshow, one of the few cult favorite beauty products wherein literally everybody is in the cult. Beauty addicts world over, whether they apply makeup for a living or simply dabble in perfecting their own face, are well-informed of the magic that is… READ MORE »

As both a New Yorker and a bonafide Francophile, I am a madly adoring fan of the brilliant graphic designer Vahram Muratyan’s website, Paris versus New York. He compares the City of Lights to the Big Apple in a way that isn’t snarky, or biased toward one or the other — rather, they read more… READ MORE »

Am I the only person out there who thinks that semi-opaque black tights are worlds sexier than bare legs? I know, it’s weird, but the sheer fact of hosiery is sexy in and of itself. Black tights are slimming, warm for the cooler seasons, and can pull any look together in a matter of seconds. READ MORE »

Last night was the eve of the official New York Fashion Week kickoff, and the American Foundation for AIDS Research’s Annual New York Gala at Cipriani Wall Street was the place to see and be seen — that is, if you’re an A-list model, celebrity, entrepreneur, or fashionista. The yearly event, hosted by Sarah Jessica… READ MORE »
