Why do I find it so charming that, after 30+ years in Hollywood, Bill Murray still shows up to his own movie premieres in an ill-fitting, possibly dirty suit, looking like he just wandered in after crashing a kickball game? (By the way, the previous sentence is all that remains of a long and incredibly inappropriate Open Letter To Bill Murray that I just wasted approximately half an hour on. I decided it was unsuitable for the public eye. Bottom line: I have a big, creepy crush on Bill Murray. He’s older than my dad. Who should I see about this?)

Olivia Palermo! Why is she still famous? We have no idea, but we covet the hell out of her glossy chestnut hair and laid-back luxe wardrobe ― I guess you could say she’s kind of our Regina George. We’ve long shunned turtlenecks, but her fresh take on this thick, chunky fisherman-inspired knit breathes new life into the old winter stalwart. You can make like Olivia and layer a fur vest over the traditional down version for extra core warmth to weather the temperature drop, or leave the North Face at home for a night out. Keep reading »
There once was a time when, upon hearing of vampires or werewolves, people did not automatically jump to express devotion to Team Whatever. (I can’t even.) In fact, people actually whipped out their wooden crosses and silver bullets and ran. Of course, nowadays we don’t run for any damn thing, but it’s always fun to recall a time when these monsters struck genuine fear in the hearts of humans… especially around Halloween. Keep reading »
What you are looking at right now is a fine example of Cate Blanchett‘s sartorial black magic: she can pull off anything, even (and perhaps especially) the most high-fashion, higher-risk of garments like this Proenza Schouler dress, and make it work. Seriously, the image depicts both a metal ladder and a man with a butterfly net covered in perforations (see: trypophobia), and I still think she looks amazing. That’s just unnatural.
Now that we’ve gotten that silly town hall presidential debate out of the way, let’s discuss what’s really important: clothes! In a twist of fashion fate, First Lady Michelle Obama and Ann Romney both sported vibrant pink to last night’s event in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Egg went for a casual sheath style in a crepey fabric, which she paired with a chunky beaded teal necklace, while Michelle opted for a dressier look complete with matching jacket and a string of pearls. We have our own convictions about who came out on top (and who got shoved in a binder), but what say you?

Leave it to LUSH to formulate the perfect antidote for those autumn-onset blues with a sweet starry-night-in-a-bottle ― and to make it a bittersweet limited edition, so that we’ll have to ration it all spring and summer long. Twilight Shower Gel, the sudsy incarnation of the brand’s beloved Twilight Bath Bomb, only comes around once a year, but it’s impossible not to get attached to the warm, slightly herbal tonka bean and lavender fragrance. With a twinkling dark purple gel formula that would make Edward Cullen jealous (don’t worry, the iridescence washes right off), you might not want to leave the bath until May. Don’t say we didn’t warn you. [$18.95 for 8.8 fl. oz., LUSH]
Ever since I got in on the bold lipstick game, I’ve been on the hunt for the most pigmented, longest-lasting color around. It’s fairly safe to say that I’ve tried at least half of the formulas on the market (or at least that you can buy at Sephora, where I am basically the resident squatter), and while I’ve found some that I really love, it’s usually for their moisturizing qualities, ease of use, and, um, attractiveness of the package in my hand, never the bright, true color and lasting power that I initially set out for. Lip Tar, a 100% vegan and cruelty-free product by Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics, is unlike anything I’ve ever tried, and it seriously delivers. Keep reading »
Not only did Olivia Wilde give a fiercely awesome (and hilariously revealing!) monologue alongside other female game changers at Glamour‘s “These Girls” event, but she also managed to look pretty damn fierce while doing so. The starlet, accompanied by boyfriend Jason Sudeikis, had the honor of finishing off the evening’s performances with her own frank, honest tale (namely, of how her failed marriage caused her vagina to die). We totally covet her leather-heavy look, but it’s just a little unrealistic for every day (non-celebrity) wear — switch out her leather leggings for a pair of coated skinny jeans, and you’ve got yourself an outfit that’s casual and chic while still being, you know, completely badass, just like Olivia herself.
