Fall Must Haves: 10 Fresh Mixed-Media Jackets

A good surplus or leather jacket is great in its own right, but the latest crop of outerwear this season is putting an unexpected twist on our old autumn standbys with mixed-media touches, like leather sleeves on a classic army jacket or twill topper. The result is a little ― okay, a lot ― cooler than the original, infusing any fall outfit, whether it’s a frilly dress or a pair of jeans, with a tough, downtown vibe. Pick up one of these 10 pieces and hit the street, but be prepared to hear “where’d you get that?” at least twice today.

  • To celebrate the new and improved relaunch of high fashion voyeur heaven The Coveteur, the people behind the site cast a band of child actors as notable fashion people, including Karl Lagerfeld, Grace Coddington, and Anna Dello Russo. How do you say “brilliant” en Français? [The Cut]
  • The FDA is cracking down on marketing claims made by cosmetics companies, especially those associated with anti-aging products. You didn’t actually believe that Lancôme serum could “boost the activity of genes,” right? [Cosmetics Design]

Makeup Bag: 10 Heavenly Bath Products To Get You Through The Season

Oh, yes, that time of year is approaching again, when all you really want to do is lay in the bathtub all day and night. When the weather gets cold and the days get short (like, so short) there’s nothing better to ease your Seasonal Affective Disorder-addled mind than to peel off the wool tights and draw yourself a hot bath. (We like showers, too, especially if the tub is a little sketchy.) But what is a leisurely bath without the right atmosphere? These are our picks to set the stage for a mind-meltingly relaxing bathtime experience, with the perfect subdued scents to make you feel a little better about spending your entire Friday night submerged in water. There is nothing wrong with that.

In the ultimate mix of high fashion and low-budget, Jennifer Lopez goes right ahead and matches her sweatsuit to her Birkin. Post-capitalist commentary or just giving a long-awaited shoutout to “Jenny From The Block,” one can’t be sure, but J. Lo is definitely not the first to do it. You see this kind of thing all the time in Boca Raton. As for the high-low mix… I guess you could say the same about her and Casper Smart. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]

“As a woman, I think it’s really important not to discredit feelings. There weren’t too many difficulties with the whole love triangle thing [in "Twilight"] … If you can get past conventions and what everyone else is thinking, then you can have what you want.”

― While talking “Twilight” at a promotional event, Kristen Stewart waxed philosophical on her character Bella Swan’s complicated relationships with two men. It’s interesting to me, in light of what apparently went down, that she would make this comment ― and phrased so oddly! “As a woman, I think it’s really important not to discredit feelings.” What is she trying to say?

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of attending a seasonal event hosted by Melvita, one of my favorite natural beauty brands. They tend to fly under the radar on the US market as more of an indie brand, but they have a much larger presence in Europe, especially in France, where the company originated in 1983. Their super-gentle, certified organic skin, body, and hair care products are amazing, and there’s a formidable chance that your favorite French celebrity is a documented fan. (Not naming names, because some people have contracts with Dior, but MARION COTILLARD.) Keep reading »

With her fair hair and icy complexion, there’s no doubt in my mind that Amanda Seyfried can pull off just about any makeup look. The “Les Misérables” actress killed it at Paris Fashion Week earlier in the month wearing the season’s perfectly on-trend plum lipstick, but she brightened things up for the Hollywood Film Awards Gala this week in a vivid poppy shade. I love this look ― it’s very old Hollywood with a punchy, youthful twist, and it’s a surefire way to keep spirits aloft in even the greyest, most dismal fall weather. Better still, it’s day-to-night versatile; it makes a serious statement for the 9-to-5 then transforms into pure glamour when the sun goes down, and you don’t even have to do anything. So what are you waiting for? Keep reading »

Kristen Stewart‘s pained “Twilight” red-carpet expressions usually give me sympathy neurosis, but look at how happy and confident she looks in this Louis Vuitton playsuit! It’s almost (almost) enough to make me rescind my Never Ever Ever Please God No position on rompers, but you know, I don’t think that’ll be necessary because Kristen may very well be the only person who could pull off such a difficult silhouette so beautifully. This is definitely a divisive look, and you’re either going to love it or loathe it. I stand firmly in the former category — I think it might even be my favorite Kristen look ever, and her makeup is to die for. To which I say: nailed it. Are you with me on this one, or do you think playsuits, even Louis Vuitton ones, should stay on the swingset?
