The Definitive Guide To Walking In High Heels


Think you know how to walk in high heels? This instructional video featuring model Anastassia Khozissova will give you doubts. Here, Anastassia gets into the technical nitty-gritty business of how to strut in stilettos, and it’s far more complex and complicated than you’d ever imagine. Not only are there four rules to remember (hips, head, toes, arms), but also head-feet and shoulder-feet coordination exercises that aren’t all that simple to do off the bat. Near the end of the lesson Anastassia reminds you, “You can use this in real life.” In case you had forgotten that models are superhuman beings who live in a perfect world.

Phillip Lim’s New Lingerie Line Is For Sweethearts

We love Phillip Lim‘s signature 3.1 line, but generally can’t afford too much of it. Lim’s first undergarment collection has just hit boutiques, and we’re a bit ambivalent. On the one hand, the $80-$195 price range makes owning a Lim piece closer within reach; on the other, 100 bones is a lot to drop on a bra. Either way, the designs provide some great lingerie inspiration. Instead of being overtly sexy, Lim goes for the sweet and demure with dainty silk bralets, eyelet-hemmed skirt slips (so retro!), and details like scalloped edges and lace. Suffice it to say, bad girls are allowed to wear these pieces, too. [LaGarconne.com] Keep reading »

Are You A Fan Of Anklets?

While flipping through the April issue of Elle, we learned that anklets and anklet heels are big right now. Lanvin (above left), Stuart Weitzman, and even Nine West incorporated anklets into shoes this spring, and dainty anklets got some attention in the magazine, too. The last time we considered wearing an anklet was probably back in the early ’90s. For the most part, they just look a little too tacky for our tastes, but even one of our favorite actresses, Rashida Jones (above right), sports one on a regular basis! Should we stop hating and embrace the anklet? Keep reading »

The Inspiration Board: Kim Jong-Il

Somehow, the fashion interwebs are going gaga for improbable style icon Kim Jong-Il, as we explained yesterday. Frightening? Yes. Hilarious? Kind of. You have to wonder—think he was trying to look cool, or just fell into it? Those glasses seem pretty calculated, if you ask us. His style is certainly simple enough … it’s all about minimalism, if that’s your thing. Check out our product suggestions after the jump. Keep reading »

Pretty Pretty Panties

We’d love to give our sad drawer full of worn-out granny panties a designer makeover, but that would be fairly expensive. Thank God for online outlet stores, where we can find gorgeous, silk floral briefs that originally cost $130 at a fraction of the price. These aren’t just pretty and comfy-looking; no one would kick them out of bed, that’s for sure.

Who Knew: Cole Haan Got Cool?

In the past year, we’ve seen a bunch of fashion chains stuck in the mom demographic—Eileen Fisher, Land’s End—undergo some clever re-branding to target a hipper and younger consumer. Apparently, Cole Haan has evolved its look as well, and we like what we see.

While the collection maintains a portion of that all-business, corporate-woman aesthetic, many of the styles have become more trend-forward, and dare we say it—sexy? We’re lusting after these gladiator-inspired kicks, designed by Maria Sharapova, and constructed with Nike Air technology for comfort. The company has also recruited Todd Selby to put together a stylish interactive lookbook of pretty young things in their too-cool homes (wearing, of course, Cole Haan goods). Ya dig?
