Unlikely Style Inspiration: The Sister Witches Of “Hocus Pocus”

The 1993 Disney Halloween comedy “Hocus Pocus” is straight-up one of my favorite movies of all time. I assume everyone has seen it already, but if not, I wouldn’t want to ruin it for you — you just have to watch it, with or without the under-16 audience for which it’s intended. Halloween may be just around the corner, but I’m not spooked to admit that I seek to channel a little bit of “Hocus Pocus” every day of the year (it does star the future Carrie Bradshaw, after all). You can cop the hip witch look, too — just add chunky jewelry and black boots and go, no broomstick required. Keep reading »

I’ve finally pinpointed the root of my weird obsession with Marion Cotillard: she is the real live version of the naturally lovely, ever-nonchalant, I-want-to-be-her French girl that I previously thought to exist only in my imagination. But here she is! While promoting her new movie “Rust and Bone” at the London Film Festival over the weekend, Marion went low-key with naturally wavy hair, rosy lips, and the prettiest sooty smoky eye we’ve ever seen.

Game over, everybody. Solange Knowles, in head-to-toe Dolce & Gabbana baroque and just dripping in gold, wins. It’s terrycloth sweatpants and old sports bras for me from here on out.

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?)

Style Stealer: Olivia Palermo Is Effortlessly Cool While Keeping Warm

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 »

Vampires And Werewolves: A Brief Pre-”Twilight” History

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.

Who Wore It Better?: The First Lady Faces Off Against Ann Romney

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?
