What's the mystery, Brad?

Have you ever wished you could hear Brad Pitt whisper sweet nothings to you, or anyone really, just once? (I would totally listen to a taping of Brad and Angelina’s pillow talk, wouldn’t you?) Well, you’re in luck, because Chanel is making your dreams come true (kind of like they always do, then cruelly price them at $5,000+). When we heard that Brad had been tapped as the star of an ad campaign for the brand’s iconic No. 5 fragrance, we thought it was a weird choice, but now we totally get it… and so will you, once you listen to one of the three 7-second recordings Chanel has released for the promotion. But don’t expect to see Brad’s glorious mug just yet: he is, as The Cut rightfully addressed, in Chanel time-out. We wonder what he did to deserve it… [The Cut]

I was all about Hot Topic and graphic Ts when I was Elle Fanning’s age, which is plenty embarrassing enough without someone like Elle running around looking consistently on point. Her sartorial sense is impressive at any age, but the fact that she’s so well-dressed at 14 is frankly kind of mind-blowing. Yes, I would do terrible things to push my way into her closet (and, ohmygod, all the better if she shares one with Dakota), but I’d still think twice before I went for this maxi dress. The shape and silhouette are undoubtedly gorgeous, but the effect of the polka dots and vintage-y floral print together is, shall we say, A Lot Of Look. I love the ’70s Michelle Phillips vibe, and Elle’s mermaid hair and fresh-faced makeup are perfect — I think she definitely made the best of this slightly busy look, but do you love it?

Who knew that April Ludgate, Leslie Knope, and Ann Perkins were so damn stylish? The “Parks and Recreation” trifecta cleaned up ever-so-nicely for an event hosted by Glamour, and I barely recognized the Pawnee politicians out of their buttoned-up office attire. Do you think they carpooled? I hope they carpooled. I want to be invited to that carpool.

To someone who doesn’t, like me, spend a good portion of their waking hours putting on, perfecting, and removing makeup, there may be some confusion surrounding the use of primer. A few weeks ago I set out to clarify what exactly this extra step does for your makeup and why it’s worth taking the time (and, of course, spending the money) to add one to your routine. To review: it smooths out any uneven skin texture, gives makeup a better base to adhere to, makes your foundation and concealer last longer, and more. It’s basically magic.

More people are getting into the primer game than ever, and they usually have Smashbox Photo Finish to thank as an induction into the stuff. It’s a solid choice for sure, and it’s spawned many imitations that mimic that silky, silicone-y finish — but there are so many more out there! So if you’re already familiar with using primer (or plan to make yourself familiar using my Beauty 911 tutorial), allow me to introduce you to these four lesser-known candidates.

The verdict is still out on whether Kate Upton will be able to transition smoothly from lad mag favorite to glossy cover star, but I think it’s safe to say that the odds are in her favor: she had a small (fully clothed!) feature in Vogue back in June, and Olivier Zahm (though not exactly the arbiter of good taste) tapped her for this month’s Jalouse. Most promising of all, Carine Roitfeld has so much faith in the sexy Sports Illustrated girl that she even placed her front and center on the first issue of her new magazine. Keep reading »

Fall Must Haves: 10 Leather Bottom Pieces In An Array Of Colors

Celebs may have worn it first, but we’ve been feeling leather (and leather-look) pants, shorts, and skirts in the forecast for some time now. The right piece fits seamlessly into any wardrobe; it can be the centerpiece of an outfit in color or worn with anything in black. Either way, it’s a luxurious, classic look with an unexpected edge. But let’s face it — good leather doesn’t come cheap. Hell, neither does good pleather. The quest to find the right pair of pants, or the perfect skirt, isn’t easy, so we’ve made it a little easier by compiling 10 of our best bets (of both leather and vegan pleather) under $300, with 4 options under $100. Don’t be afraid to invest in leather, because if New York Fashion Week runway trends are any indication (and duh, of course they are), the look is here to stay well through the next two seasons.

Halloween Costume Inspiration: Kristen Stewart At Her Finest

Halloween!
Everything you need for a spooktastic Halloween. Read More »

Rest assured, you’ve got a couple of weeks to prepare your costume before the Halloween party invitations start rolling in, but why don’t we start off with something that’s especially easy to, um, swallow should you find yourself in a spectacular rush come October 30? Mid-scandal Kristen Stewart is only the easiest, most timely costume ever, and all you really need is some greasy hair and a pair of sweatpants to pull it off — bonus points if you can find a married man willing to bend you over a fence, and maybe some other stuff. Plus, you can probably find all of the required items already in your closet… or your boyfriend’s. Or your married director’s. Just fling your hair, bite your lip, and go! Keep reading »

My, Does Your Hair Looks Sharp Today

I like to think of my sartorial sensibility as a delicate balance between what’s lovely and girlish and what’s, well, kind of rough around the edges; for every piece in my wardrobe that’s lacy, silk, or floral, there’s a pair of black leather boots just waiting to be worn with it. For the girl — ahem, woman — who takes her pretty with a side of gritty, this spiked hair tie is the perfect complement to sleek braids and loose, haphazard ponytails alike. Just remember to take it out before bed. [$3, Cocoon; also available in silver]

Style Stealer: Nikki Reed’s Casual Colorblocking

Nikki Reed may not have quite the same level of notoriety as some of her more, ahem, high-profile “Twilight” co-stars, but if the newlywed’s low-key lifestyle is any indication, she wouldn’t have it any other way. Regardless, with (count ‘em!) four starring movie roles coming up in the next year, I don’t think it will be long before Nikki reaches leading-lady status. The actress hit up “Extra” earlier this week to talk the end of “Twilight” — or at least that’s what I think she was there for, because all I could do was plot to steal her clothes. This is the kind of outfit I love: cool, tough, and classic, with just a couple of trendy touches like colorblocking and coated jeans. We’ve got a look just like it, after the jump … Keep reading »
