For the ceremony announcing her as the new face of Mango, Scarlett Johansson rocked a super sleek style that had a bit of a sexy edge. Scarlett paired a flutter sleeve satin top with a waist cinching black skirt- both from Mango. She completed the look with a funky pair of snakeskin shoes, gold bangles, and a large ring on her index finger. This ensemble perfectly complemented Scarlett’s incredible figure so keeping the accessories to a minimum was definitely a wise move- it would have just been overkill otherwise. This outfit is the perfect day-to-night look and is classy, chic, and subtly sexy. Check out my SLIDESHOW to get the look! Keep reading »

We’ve already read about how to get spotted by street style impresarios like The Sartorialist, but we have yet to break down the anatomy of snap-worthy street style. So let’s take this out of the theoretical and into practice. We’ve picked three different pictures from The Sartorialist and we’ll break down what works after the jump. Keep reading »
I don’t know what it is about Britney Spears that makes me compulsively root for her through thick and thin. I guess a part of me is still in denial, thinking she’s going to bust out onstage with a boa constrictor or silver chair and start magically performing with the energy and enthusiasm of Britney circa 2001. Even without all the flair and fanfare of her high-octane performance past, Britney is still doing pretty well for herself, now out with her new video for “Radar,” the fourth single off her latest album Circus. This time around, Britney leaves the barely-there lingerie get-ups and goes for a sort of equestrian-chic look while swooning over a sexy polo player within the video’s gorgeous Santa Barbara setting.

The “fashion comeback” has been on our brains lately, what with the Charles Jourdan revival, the resurfacing of the peasant blouse, sheer tops and the onslaught of ’80s-inspired styles that came to a head with Marc Jacobs‘ Fall ’09 collection (pictured), and that’s just to mention a few. However, Guardian writer Paul Cocozza says we might have everything all wrong. “Fashion doesn’t really do comebacks,” he writes. “It just never properly says goodbye.” Ooohhh, deep!

Is edgy, New York City designer Alexander Wang secretly pulling his inspiration from suburban malls? First he produced this leather sleeved jean jacket, which reeks of an Aeropostale catalog knockoff, and now we’ve spotted a pair of his biker shorts for sale on Shopbop.com. The spandex shorts, which were prominently featured during his Fall 2009 show, look remarkably similar to ones we’ve seen everywhere from Sears to Walmart. Except, what would cost you $30 at these department stores will run you a couple of hundred–$365 to be exact. We get it, Wang is chic and modern and all the celebs and socialites love him. But no amount of buzz in the world justifies this price point! [The Cut] Keep reading »
- This week Jackie O would have celebrated her 80th birthday were the style icon and all around classy lady still with us. Wear a pillbox hat or big, round sunglasses in homage to her this weekend. [Huffington Post]
- Rumor has is that Topshop is making its way to Brooklyn next year. The brand says “no comment” but we’re holding our collective breaths and trying not to pee ourselves in excitement. [NY Times' The Local]

- Riccardo Tisci, Givenchy’s head designer, is creating a capsule collection, Redux. We still probably won’t be able to afford it, but looking and drooling are free! [Vogue]
Time and death were the inspirations behind Christian Dior‘s latest line of uber-opulent jewelry. Dubbed the “Kings and Queens Collection,” these luxurious accessories, designed by Victoire de Castellane, are crafted from opal, jade, and obsidian. The stones are then sculpted into skulls complete with ornate, blinged out crowns and collars. The garish heads are meant to represent the passing of time and the coming of death, while the sparkling crown and collar remind us to enjoy every moment. This time around, we sort of don’t see what’s so hot about this haute piece. [I strongly disagree. They're gorgeous and I'll take two please! -- Editor] Especially not when the rings, which are meant to be worn two at time, will surely cost a fortune. [D'oh! -- Ed.] We’re assuming this isn’t necessarily in your budget, but in case it is log on to Dior‘s fine jewelry website for details on where to buy — then call us for dinner!

Dov Charney, American Apparel’s oft-sued CEO and general pervy slimeball, is at it again. This time around, he’s been accused of discriminating based on looks. Again. Apparently, one of his store managers tipped off Gawker, saying that Charney sent out a memo requesting that those employees not genetically blessed enough to hold up American Apparel’s aesthetic standards be fired. With all the time he spends sexually harassing dozens of employees, we’re surprised the dude even has a minute to actively discriminate based on looks!
But seeing that he has, in fact, made the time for the important things, we too will take time out of our day to make fun of him for it. With that in mind, check out our “How To Tell If You Work For…” chart, in which you’ll find every indicator you need to decide whether or not you do (or should) work for American Apparel or Abercrombie & Fitch, a company entirely different aesthetically but similarly besieged for discrimination legally.

When I happened to come across these kicks filed under “Men’s Fashion” on the NY Times‘ The Moment today, I braced myself for disappointment. Doesn’t Converse know there are plenty of female metalheads out here in this crazy mixed-up world? Luckily, I was wrong. Visit the site to find extra-high voltage AC/DC Chucks in sizes that will fit men, women, and even Europeans! Kids, however, are SOL, meaning that Kingston Rossdale will be so freakin’ put out.

It seems like Twiggy will never go out of style, and as the years pass, her iconic stature only seems to gain importance. To wit: The National Portrait Gallery in London is paying tribute to the model with an exhibition of her best work. Of course, “Twiggy: A Life in Photographs” owes its constitution largely to the photographers known for making her a household name, such as Cecil Beaton, Richard Avedon, and Annie Leibovitz, to name a few. Twiggy, who still models (!) commented on the exhibition, underlining the reason why we’d want to see it: “It’s really interesting to see how fashion photography and portraiture have evolved throughout my career.”
