Let’s be honest: Not everyone can pull off the elusive jumpsuit without looking like a major fashion victim. Claire did it with ease with this linen number from Marks and Spencer and animal print sandals. She was spending the afternoon looking modern, fittingly, outside the Tate Modern Museum. Her bleach blond cropped hair and scarlet lips and nails put the icing on the cake of what is most certainly an already stylish look. Keep reading »

OK, well not exactly. But a bevy of Housewives did show up to the Jill Stuart runway show today, along with Kim Kardashian, Kelly Rowland (who touched up Kim’s makeup), Rachel Bilson and “Top Chef” judge Gail Simmons. Sheree Whitfield sat directly across from Caroline and Dina Manzo, so it was a Jersey/Atlanta face-off in the front row. Keep reading »
There’s no doubt that Fashion’s Night Out was a huge social success (just ask our hangovers the next morning). But with all the hype, celebs, and cool parties, it’s been easy to forget the event’s intent—Anna Wintour‘s mission to help save the ailing industry through a night of fashion and spending.
So, did FNO do its job? Conclusive revenue reports from stores and the designers themselves have yet to be revealed, although WWD reports:
ShopperTrak reported Fashion’s Night Out spurred a 3.4 percent nationwide traffic increase in apparel and accessories stores, with nearly a 50 percent rise in Manhattan… “Our traffic data proves Fashion’s Night Out was a very successful event for those retailers in the apparel and accessories segment,’” said Bill Martin, co-founder of ShopperTrak.
Yet, throughout the evening, we can’t say we saw anyone buying—the hectic and crowded atmosphere definitely didn’t communicate a purchasing vibe. Keep reading »
If you’ve ever heard someone’s snicker followed by a mumbled “… yeah like rabbits” and rolled your eyes, well, roll your eyes no more. At first glance this Bunny Sutra Watch looks like another snazzy Swatch watch to add to your collection. Upon investigation, you’ll find that these cute and cuddly bunnies aren’t so innocent – they’re engaging in some rather interesting positions. Trust us: You will definitely know what time it is from now on. The only snag is that after its massive sellout on the Swatch site you may have to do a bit of surfing to find a good deal. Here’s one to get you started. [$190, SwatchAndBeyond.com] Keep reading »

You may or may not remember that American designer Tom Ford
took some time away from his busy fashion and beauty career to make a film. And while some people were critical of this move, having met and chatted the night away with Ford a couple of years ago, I was struck by how incredibly intelligent, creative, passionate and just downright cool he was. Basically, I’ve totally had his back on this the whole time. (Like he cares, but anyway.) So that very film premiered this weekend in Venice and the reviews are stellar! Julianne Moore is fantastic (no surprise there) and there are already Best Actor rumors swirling around male star, Colin Firth. Also to be expected, Ford brings style to the table with a moody palette, gorgeous costumes and a beautiful soundtrack. Can’t wait to see the whole thing! Keep reading »
