Mr. Blackwell’s Worst Dressed Of The Last Decade

The chief of the fashion police Mr. Blackwell died from complications from an intestinal infection on Sunday in Los Angeles. He was a little-known dress designer when he released his first worst-dressed list in 1960. But his tongue-in-cheek criticism of celebrity fashion became an annual event. Although Mr. Blackwell has skewered many celebrities for their fashion felonies, he said most of the women were people he genuinely admired for their talent if not their fashion sense. “The list is and was a satirical look at the fashion flops of the year,” he said in 1998. “I merely said out loud what others were whispering. … It’s not my intention to hurt the feelings of these people. It’s to put down the clothing they’re wearing.” To that end, we’ve put together a slideshow of the women who have made Mr. Blackwell’s list in the last 10 years. [MSNBC] Keep reading »

Fashion Slideshow: Trench Coats

As Tim Gunn would say on his “Guide To Stye”, a trench coats is one of the 10 essential items every woman needs in her closet.

Think about it — Jackie O and Audrey Hepburn were wearing the same kind of trenches you can buy now back in their hey day. Anyhoo, after the jump, some classic and not-so-classic trenches that belong in your closet. Keep reading »

Fashion Slideshow: Pretty Pants

To tell you the truth, I’m not so into pants. I wear jeans and I wear dresses whenever I possibly can. But sometimes pants are necessary — on freezing days, on corporate meeting days, and on days when you haven’t done laundry. After the jump, seven pairs of pants I would totally not mind wearing. In fact, I would ever wearing them on warm days, casual Fridays, and the day after picking up my laundry from the cleaners. Keep reading »

Fashion Slideshow: Rockin’ Socks

We have officially entered boot season, which means we have also entered sock season, unless you enjoy developing awful blisters on your Achilles tendons. While getting dressed this morning, I realized I only have athletic ankle socks and a pair of red socks decorated with green Christmas trees. Today, I went with the holiday socks, even though they clash with my pink dress; Only I will see them, after all. But a girl needs more than one pair to get through winter — and everyone needs a pair of slipper socks (last photo) to prevent numb toes while lounging. Keep reading »

Fashion Slideshow: Winter Coats

Wearing a fabulous new coat is the best part about the weather getting colder. If you live in a climate that is freezing or moderately chilly most of the year, then your coat is what people will notice about you first. I know it’s kind of sad, but that chic outfit you have covered up will play second fiddle to your outerwear. So why not let your coat be a fashion statement all on its own? Winter coats have gone way beyond the humdrum, functional wool peacoat of the past. This season look for bright colors, plaid or herringbone. And designers are even adding details like puff-sleeves, drop-waists and ruffles to make coats stand out. If you live in a particularly cold area, No. 10 proves that even a down puffer can be stylish. Bonus: all the coats in this slideshow cost $250 or less. Keep reading »

Fashion Slideshow: Lace-Up Flats

Lace-up flats are a controversial style of shoe. We’ve heard quite a few people declare them to be hideous creations, but we’re buying a pair because they remind us of Katharine Hepburn, and, quite honestly, we’re a little sick of ballet flats. Check out these lace-up flats and tell us whether you think they’re wonderful or awful. Keep reading »

Slideshow: Celebrity Couples Who’ve Survived “The Break”

A “breakup” becomes just a “break” when the couple in question find their way back to each other after a necessary snippet of time apart. Being in the middle of a “break”/”breakup” myself, I’ve thought a lot about the different directions this could go — a full-on “breakup” where we’re totally over, no chance of reconciliation, or a set period of time apart, where we do our own things and hopefully rediscover why we were together in the first place. Not sure what’s going to happen for me, but this is a pretty common occurance in Hollywood! After the jump, 10 couples who fell in love, broke up, and then got back together and are (mostly) living happily ever after. Proof that if you do take a break for one another, really take a break — it can give you both a lot of perspective. Keep reading »
