Never a fan of the middle ground, Tilda Swinton‘s been something of a sartorial surprise for years. She’s back at the gender bending in next month’s V. We’re big fans of her supernatural ability to play it both ways, and can’t settle on a favorite. What about you? Long ladylike locks or One Of The Boys? [Fashion Copious] Keep reading »
They say if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em. But in the case of becoming a fabulous Chanel-clad lady, that’s not exactly an option, considering our tax brackets. So, if you can’t get the real thing, we say: mock it. That’s why we’re loving this kind of genius tote bag from Forever 21, which features a Chanel-inspired purse drawing on the front. Plus, it’s eco-friendly and dirt cheap!

Some film stills from the “Sex and the City” sequel are out, and we’ve been staring at the gang’s style to figure out how we feel about it. Is it realistic? Aspirational? Bold? Completely rooted in fantasy but totally entertaining? And which looks will influence fashion trends (because that’s inevitable)?
For the new look of 40-something Carrie, costume designer Patricia Field and Sarah Jessica Parker wanted to portray a different side of the fashion-fanatic character. Director Michael Patrick King explained that the first images released of Carrie (remember that glam white dress with the sunglasses?) were intentionally styled: “This one is about evolution. They — Pat and Sarah Jessica — wanted to pick a simple, clean, American line. It’s a vintage piece of Halston, which is fancied up with those crazy gold sunglasses. They wanted to show Carrie’s grown-upness. All the girls have hands-on feelings about their clothes.”
When looking at their wardrobes, we have a hard time deciding whether the “SATC” characters represent something fun and inspirational for the image of 40-somethings (will grown women follow their lead?), or if they remain in the realm of laughable entertainment and fiction. Take a look at a few more images from “Sex and the City 2″ after the jump, and tell us what you think! [LA Times via Racked] Keep reading »
Time magazine takes it upon itself to narrow down the 100 most influential people in the world on a yearly basis to create the “Time 100″ list. Along with the requisite world leaders — Barack Obama, Bill Clinton — a few fashion people generally earn a spot for their efforts. But this year, the list includes just one designer, Marc Jacobs. In the issue, Victoria Beckham offers her opinion on Marc, claiming he’s “one of the most interesting and intellectual men” she’s ever known and crediting him with innovative designs and the skill to determine trends. And I certainly agree. After all, the man walks around in a kilt and has fashion editors scrambling to their seats in order to see his shows. My problem is with the rest of the list. Do Robert Pattinson, Lady Gaga, and Simon Cowell really belong on the same level as leaders like the President? I’d argue that designers like Karl Lagerfeld or Ralph Lauren are a great deal more influential than a celebrity who doesn’t know how to wash his hair. View the full “Time 100″ here and draw your own opinion. [Time] Keep reading »
For the first time in a very long time, most of next season’s major designer ad campaigns have been claimed by models, not actors. Alessandra Ambrosia grabbed the Moschino campaign, Karlie Kloss is going to continue to be all up in Dior’s piece, and Balenciaga is bringing on a cast of ten models for their upcoming ads. (That’s only a tiny sampling of campaigns that are going with models; check out tons more here). Actually, the only major designer brand that’s sticking with a celeb is Dolce & Gabanna — with Madonna. Though their names rhyme, we wish they’d jump on the model bandwagon, too.
