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 Good, The Bad, And The Meh: The 2012 Glamour Women Of The Year Awards

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…

All The Stars (And Then Some) At The Premiere Of “Breaking Dawn: Part 2″

“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?

This Week In Style: Nicolas Ghesquière Says Au Revoir To Balenciaga

  • In a huge move, Balenciaga designer Nicolas Ghesquière (shown here with brand favorite K. Stew) has unexpectedly up and abandoned his post after 15 years at the helm of the label. But why? The Guardian addresses some theories. [The Guardian]
  • Barack Obama may be our president for another four years, but that certainly doesn’t make him exempt from Women’s Wear Daily sartorial scrutiny… and they happen to think his pants are way too big. [WWD]
  • Heads up to all of our tri-state area readers: there’s a huge vintage crawl taking place in Brooklyn this Sunday. To help the Hurricane Sandy relief efforts and score discounts and promotions on awesome vintage merchandise, look no further. Get the details at the event’s website! [Vintage Crawl]

The Look For Less: Isabel Marant Studded Booties

Celebrities have been hot for studded ankle boots since Chloé released their ridiculously popular “Susan” (right, on Kate Bosworth) in 2008, and with Isabel Marant’s updated, higher-heeled Americana (left, on Kate Moss) take on a similar pair, it’s only a matter of time before every starlet is sporting them on the street once again. I hesitate to call it a mere trend, because these shoes have serious staying power — just ask eternal trendsetters like these two Kates, who have both worn theirs with surprising regularity when you consider that they have, like, every awesome thing ever at their beck and call. I’ve had my eye on the booties for years, and while I imagine it must be very satisfying to own ‘em, the best thing about a super-popular shoe is that it often “inspires” plenty of more reasonably priced versions. Cop this celeb favorite look for way less, after the jump! Keep reading »

Jennifer Lawrence Talks Weight, Compares Herself To Val Kilmer

“In Hollywood, I’m obese. I’m considered a fat actress. I’m Val Kilmer in that one picture on the beach. … I’m never going to starve myself for a part. I keep waiting for that one role to come along that scares me enough into dieting, and it just can’t happen. I’m invincible. … I don’t want little girls to be like, ‘Oh, I want to look like Katniss, so I’m going to skip dinner.’ That’s something that I was really conscious of during training, when you’re trying to get your body to look exactly right. I was trying to get my body to look fit and strong, not thin and underfed.”

— Puh-lease, Jennifer Lawrence, you are one of the babeliest babes around. But I do get what she’s saying about being considered a “fat actress” — just as Romola Garai so eloquently noted, acting professions have become so intertwined with the fashion industry that actresses who don’t fit into the ever-dwindling sample size are an anomaly. And even more refreshingly, Jennifer doesn’t take the Kim Kardashian cop-out stance of, “I love my body and want to inspire other girls to love theirs, but also I’m working out three hours a day and trying really hard to lose weight.” I just get the feeling that she’s totally cool with herself the way she is. Love her! [Crushable]

Oh, Keira Knightley, can you do no wrong? [Yes. See the movie "A Dangerous Method." -- Editor] Seen here: the “Anna Karenina” star is untouchable in Valentino (and I’m going to need an ID on that lipstick, stat). She is totally making me reconsider my visceral reaction to my own overgrown eyebrows, which is to say the damning little voice inside my head that encourages me to take a razor to those bitches. Never a good idea.

This little Stella McCartney tank dress is so perfect on Cameron Diaz. It’s very simple in cut and silhouette, but it has a young, romantic prettiness to it that the “Gambit” actress doesn’t usually go for. The whole thing comes together when paired with ankle-strap pumps (and, um, maybe a new set of boobs, or just a really sick push-up bra), and Cam definitely has the legs to pull off the tricky knee-grazing length. Is it just me, though, or does she look so sideways? The leaning tower of Diaz?

“Karl Lagerfeld decided to come to my ball in Paris [for French Vogue's 90th anniversary] dressed in a burqa so he wouldn’t be recognized … he was arrested outside.”

― I’m still reeling from the two things I just learned about Karl Lagerfeld, straight from the legendary mouth of former Vogue Paris EIC (and newly-crowned global fashion director of Harper’s Bazaar!) Carine Roitfeld: he has a police record in France! Also, he might just be a tiny bit culturally insensitive. Color me shocked. Please, Carine, do tell us more …

Must Haves: 8 Toke-ns For The Pothead In All Of Us

Hey stoners, guess what? That’s right: in Washington and Colorado, marijuana is now completely legal for recreational use by legal adults (that means anyone over the age of 21). You jealous? I am, but I guess I’ll get over it. While we wait for the other 48 states to come around (or is it 49? Puerto Rico, are you there?), let’s celebrate this very small victory with a selection of eight classy, subtle products, from bougie candles to a soothing body cream, that are either made from or inspired by Cannabis sativa. And please, for the love of god, leave your Bob Marley shirt at home.
