Here are all of the things I know about Olga Kurylenko: she’s Russian, she’s dating Danny Huston, and she has the type of face that I would like to wear as my own. Also, she’s starring in a new movie with Tom Cruise, which I won’t be seeing. My criteria for movies is, “is Tom Cruise in this movie?” If the answer is yes, I won’t see it. Sorry, everyone who’s ever been in a movie with Tom Cruise. Including you, Olga.
But anyway, I’m almost always crying about how celebrities don’t wear nearly enough Elie Saab. I don’t get it — every single one of his dresses is to die for, and on the occasion that someone does wear Saab’s designs, they look like this. Impeccable! So: if you’re famous, have ever been famous, or may become famous, and you’re reading this, WEAR ELIE SAAB. DO IT FOR ME. [Photo: WENN]
Dear Sienna Miller’s Wardrobe Circa 2004,
You don’t know me, but I know you better than I know many of my family members. Would you like me to draw a detailed inventory of every one of your shrunken denim vests, floral sundresses, and slouchy thigh-high boots? Because I totally could. I will even defend you for that six-month period when you decided pants in public were totally optional. You see, Sienna’s Wardrobe, I was completely and totally obsessed with you from around 2004 to 2005. I worshipped you to a point of unhealthy obsession. You were my one and only style inspiration for nearly two years of my life.
But the truth is, I haven’t thought about you in quite awhile. At some point I must have moved on, but I didn’t realize it until I saw this new photo (shown above) of Sienna Miller, circa last week. Like seeing an old boyfriend pop up in Facebook’s “People You May” section, it instantly brought back a flood of memories, but something was different: I didn’t experience the mad rush of envy and desire that I’ve felt so many times before… Keep reading »
This “pinafore dress” from Zara is reminding me of one of those old-timey bathing suits from the 1800s, which is reminding me of the episode of “Seinfeld” where Newman wears one of those bathing suits while yelling “Olly olly oxen free!” and cannonballing into a pool, which is a lovely memory, but not really an image I want my fashion choices to evoke. I’ll take a pass. [$90, Zara]
If you’re wondering how to transition your wardrobe from winter to spring, take a cue from model Jessica Hart, and try pairing bright spring colors (lavender jeans? Yes, please!) with staples from your winter wardrobe, like a classic trench coat and slouchy beige sweater. Swap out the heavy boots for some comfy slip-on loafers, and you’re good to go. Steal this whole look for yourself, after the jump! Keep reading »
I recently held a private induction ceremony in my mind for Eva Mendes to join the exclusive club of Celebrites Who Can Do No Fashion Wrong (other members include Diane Kruger and Jessica Alba). I mean, look at this outfit. I’ve been dreaming about that pink coat and glamorous hair flip for weeks now. But yesterday Eva stepped out in this animal print jumpsuit, and while she’s trying her damndest to make it work, I’m not sure it’s actually working. What say you? [Photo: Splash News]
It’s called the Zip Tie, and it’s exactly what it sounds like: a necktie that zips up, saving you the hassle of, you know, tying your tie. Ready to throw out all your non-zipping ties? This efficient accessory can be yours for the low, low price of $65! [Neatorama]
“Chiffon” and “crocodile” are two words I have never before seen occupying the same sentence. Well, Hermes must have noticed, because they’ve officially tapped into the niche “things that are made of chiffon, and also of crocodile” market that there is such a massive demand for. Hermes is just the best like that, you know? Those patron saints of all the stuff you really need whipped up this super-awesome men’s t-shirt crafted from “an innovative lightweight dyed crocodile,” which sounds kinda sweaty. It’s also retailing at the totally reasonable price of $91,500 at the brand’s Madison Avenue store, right next to a whole range of other chiffon crocodile shirts running from $60,000-$100,000. Which, psh. Pocket change. I have that tucked into my bra right now, don’t you? I will be sorely disappointed if Scott Disick isn’t photographed wearing this in a few weeks’ time. In the meantime, here’s some other stuff you could buy for $91,500, you dummy. [Fashionista] Keep reading »
It can be tough to find appropriate clothing for a conservative office environment, especially during spring and summer, when sleeves disappear and hemlines rise dramatically. I went in search of work-ready dresses with sleeves, modest necklines, and hems that hit at the knee or below. Obviously if you work at a super conservative office, you’ll need to stick to suits and separates, but if dresses are acceptable attire at your workplace, check out these 10 simple, flattering options in an array of colors and sizes, starting at just $25…
If you’ve ever owned a pair of Converse sneakers, you’ve experienced the long and arduous process of breaking them in. It can take six months to a year of daily wear to get them softened up and perfectly molded to your foot, at which point you can enjoy a brief window of sneaker self-actualization before a hole appears in the sole and you have to buy a new pair and start over. Converse addicts will tell you this is all part of the Converse experience, but apparently not everyone has the time or energy to break in their shoes. Enter Converse’s aptly titled “Well Worn Collection,” a new line of sneakers that are scuffed up, dirty, and worn-in, right out of the box. Keep reading »
