The Racy Allure Editorial Starring Karlie Kloss Is Being Made Into A Big Deal

For a Mario Testino – shot beauty editorial in this month’s Allure, 19-year-old Karlie Kloss wears very little makeup — along with very little of anything else. (A sample fashion credit: “necklace by Fenton, spandex thong by Victoria’s Secret.”) Though her modesty’s consistently preserved, it’s only thanks to some splayed fingers here and well-positioned bath bubbles there — and this not-really-a-scandal has some bloggers clutching their pearls and reeling from the shock of it all.

Shopping Guide: 9 Gorgeous Moss Green Pieces

Earlier this week, Kate, Ami and I were waiting for our orders in front of our favorite falafel truck when we spotted a girl in the above green halter top dress. The lovely mossy green color was striking, especially paired with a brown leather belt and boots. The dress, $158 from Anthropologie, felt appropriately fall-like but still retained a sexy edge. And the color! The color was absolutely stunning. We liked it so much that I thought I’d search for other great pieces of mossy green goodness. Check out what I found!

Rediscovering Gold Lipstick

Ask any of my friends about my signature makeup look, and they’ll tell you that I love a bold lip–either red or purple–it doesn’t matter as long as it’s noticeable. But lately, I’ve rediscovered my favorite lip color in high school — IMAN Citron. I used to slather on this gold lipstick when I wanted to feel older than my 16 years. And now at almost 31, it’s strange how this lipstick color reminds me of my youth … and the different beauty looks of my life. Keep reading »

Daphne Guinness Doesn’t Eat

“I’ll eat when I’m dead.”

–Brit designer addict and heiress Daphne Guinness on how she stays thin enough to fit into her couture collection.

Inspiration Board: FX’s “Archer”

Inspiration Board: FX's "Archer"
As the only girl in a group of fanboys, I’ve been introduced to more late night, adult animation than I care to mention. Sometimes I watch because I’m outnumbered, like in the case of Cartoon Network’s “Regular Show.” But other times I discover a comedic and entertaining gem like FX’s “Archer,” an animated series about the ISIS spy agency and its employees, who think of every mission as an opportunity to undermine, sabotage, and screw each other, literally and figuratively. There are three reasons I’m in love with “Archer.” One, it’s able to spoof both James Bond and “Mad Men” at the same time. Two, the animation appeals to my aesthetic sensibilities because it’s a cross between realism and comic book animation. And three, the characters actually change clothes, which in my mind is quite a feat in an animated series — I may be a slight fangirl, but most things in my life still come down to style. Which brings me to the main purpose of this slideshow, to get fashion inspiration from the characters of “Archer.” Since most of the action occurs at the ISIS headquarters, Archer and his crew can show us a thing or two about dressing for the office.
