The clouds have parted, the sun has emerged, and the heavens are singing. The world’s greatest fashion designer (in my — totally correct — opinion), Alexander McQueen, is now on Twitter! Lee [That is, apparently, McQueen's nickname or something. -- Editor] and his posse started emitting tweets earlier this week at @McQueenWorld. Racked has confirmed it’s the real deal. While they’re not tweeting up a storm just yet, it sounds like they’re gearing up to Twitter about Fashion Week from behind the scenes at McQueen. To quote Rachel Zoe: “I die.” [Racked] Keep reading »
In an effort to let us commoners into Vogue‘s inner sanctum, the magazine recently posted “Five Days, Five Looks, One Girl: Indre Rockefeller.” Not unlike our current month of style project, “Five Days, Five Outfits” documents Anna Wintour assistant Indre’s clothing choices for five days. That, however, is where the similarities end.

Kylie Minogue has been killing it lately, but we’re not sure if anyone but her could pull off this wild-looking leather fringe jacket. Still, she kind of aces it with the not-too-precious gray bag, restrained black boots, whatevs hairstyle and T-shirt underneath. Lesson learned: If you’re going to wear some crazy-ass “fashion!” item, keep the rest of your look simple. Do we like? [London, 9/2/09] Keep reading »
Have you heard of Fashionair yet? If not, it’s only a matter of time. The British-based fashion site is formally launching online tomorrow, Sept. 3. And for such a new site, it is beyond impressive. It combines the conversational news delivery of your favorite fashion blog with the luxury retail component of a Net-A-Porter. This one-stop shop destination features a dizzying number of video interviews with fashion insiders like famed photographer Ellen Von Unwerth and Julia Restoin-Roitfeld, daughter of French Vogue editor, Carine Roitfeld. The boldfaced names featured on the site make sense when you consider the boldfaced name behind the site: Simon Fuller. The power producer who hails from England is the mastermind behind the careers of Victoria Beckham (aka Posh Spice), Claudia Schiffer and Carrie Underwood. Including original television programs, insider interviews, and 24-hour online shopping, this hybrid shopping site is poised to be a breath of fresh air for online fashion content. We plan on tuning in. Will you? [The New York Observer] Keep reading »
At this point, the cameos seem a lot more interesting than the plotline of upcoming prime-time drama “The Beautiful Life.” The show, which is centered around the lives of New York City models, has attracted a star-studded list of fashion industry types who play themselves, including designer Zac Posen and “Project Runway” judge Nina Garcia. Now add Max Azria, the man behind buzzy brands like BCBG Max Azria and Herve Leger. The designer is scheduled to appear as himself on an upcoming episode of the show, which debuts September 16 on the CW. Keep reading »
The coming of Fashion Week means that, if you live in New York, you’ll be spending a lot of time over the next few days feeling kind of short and fat as an inexplicably large number of models wander the streets en route to castings, clutching portfolios and cards that feature photos of them, their measurements and their agent’s contact info. The thing is, tall and impossibly thin as said models are, there are lots of them and standing apart from the gorgeous gaggle must be a pain in the ass, and challenging! One Model Management, however, is making it a bit easier with by far the coolest model cards we’ve ever seen. Inspired by famous fashion photographer Richard Avedon, these retro-looking numbers beat the pants off their classy-but-boring black and white counterparts, don’t you think?

In this sort of long and boring (well, depending on your taste) video, Miley Cyrus and her friend Mandy Jiroux go through her closet, creating a mountain of clothes she doesn’t want anymore. In it, she remembers the shirt she wore the first time she met Johnny Depp and gives Mandy a reject wallet. And her closet? It’s huge and filled to the brim. But her dressing room isn’t the craziest in Hollywood. After the jump, six notable celebrity closets and our oh-so-insightful observations about each one. [via NY Mag] Keep reading »
Between Sarah Jessica Parker‘s all-white ensemble on the “Sex and the City” sequel yesterday, Tiffany Thornton’s look for “It’s On With Alexa Chung” and Kylie Minogue‘s slammin’ ivory dress for just because, it seems like celebs are all frenzied trying to wear up their white clothes before the impending holiday weekend. Because, you know, someone in the public eye couldn’t possibly get away with — gasp! — wearing white after Labor Day. Keep reading »
So, who out there has ever had to layer a tank top under, say, a DVF wrap dress in order to remain “covered”? Or have you ever felt nekkid wearing a strapless dress to work, so you threw on a tee underneath? Or a cardi on top? Don’t know about you, but my hand is raised way up in the air. Why is it that chic dresses sometimes just leave us feeling a little too exposed?
Luckily, I just found an awesome solution. Keep reading »
