A Helmut Newton ripoff? Sure! That doesn’t mean we don’t love the cover of the latest and third issue of Love magazine, focusing on “Fashion Icons” and featuring a totally naked and lushly shapely Lara Stone. [Fashion Copious] Keep reading »
In a new series for his immensely popular high-end street fashion blog, Jak & Jil, photographer Tommy Ton profiles Emily Eisen, first assistant to fashion editor and stylist Nicola Formichetti, whose clients include Lady Gaga, Robert Pattinson, and Scarlett Johansson. In the pictorial, Eisen shows off a few of her favorite fashion things, including Burberry’s barbed wire ring, American Apparel sheer white tees, and those Prada chandelier shoes. Check out more snaps after the jump. Keep reading »
It’s about 20 degrees in New York today and, thus, officially time for me to give up on wearing that black cotton eyelet dress one more time. Below 30–below 60, if I’m being honest with myself–the “but it’s black, so that’s fine!” justification simply stops working. If you’re still trying to squeeze one last wearing out of clothes that are totally seasonally inappropriate, step away from the sundress, take a deep breath, and join me in an epic closet cleaning and clothes storage mission. Tips to keep your off-season clothes looking lovely after the jump. Keep reading »
While W may have Photoshopped out all that makes Jennifer Garner look like Jennifer Garner, they didn’t go wrong in the makeup department. Look at the fierce cat eye! Adore.
One problem, though: there’s no bigger beauty challenge than applying liquid liner. It takes a seriously steady hand, just the right mirror angle and an ounce of dumb luck to get it right. Seriously, when was the last time you tried to pull off the whole cat eyeliner look and emerged victorious? I’m pretty decent doing one eye—but I can’t very well go out with just one eye lined! I’ve got a few tips I stumbled upon in my quest for perfectly cat-eye lined lids, after the jump. Keep reading »
There are a few features I dream of having in my future home. The list includes a dishwasher, a washer and dryer, a radiator that doesn’t clank, and a striped bathroom. Because of that last wish, the December issue of Lonny made me drool all over my laptop. The online magazine pictures not one but two striped bathrooms. The first (above) is in the J.Crew Collection store on NYC’s Upper East Side, and the second (after the jump) is one of the bathrooms at Hotel Keppler in Paris.
If you’re lucky enough to be allowed to paint the walls in your home (i.e., you own it or have a cool landlord), you can create your own striped bathroom pretty easily. Friends of mine have added black stripes to their white walls, and they advise deciding on a stripe width and mapping it out in the bathroom to ensure the lines don’t hit the corners or mirror edges awkwardly. Keep reading for another striped bathroom photo and tips for executing … [Lonny] Keep reading »
Know those convertible pants that become shorts just by unzipping the bottoms? In theory: good idea. In reality: ugly as hell. So it’s pretty amazing that Michael Kors has managed to take the same principle, stick it on a boot, and make it moderately stylish. Behold his new “Franny” style, which can be zipped up or unzipped to create four different length boots. You can rock the currently trendy thigh-high, and once it goes out of style (which it will), take off a level to get a classic calf-height. For everyday wear, unlatch all and skip around in a simple bootie.
While we’ve seen convertible shoes before, they haven’t offered quite as many options as Mr. Kors’ model. What do you think—would you get a lot of use out of these zipper boots? Or are they not your style? [HighSnobette] Keep reading »
This hand-quilted bag with a faux antler handle would have coordinated perfectly with the outfit Lady Gaga wore on Monday. And it’s the priciest item we’ve ever encountered on Etsy, so it would match the singer’s expensive taste, too. [$600, Etsy] Keep reading »

Lara Stone was robbed! The term “Model of the Year” cracks me up and reminds me of that famous scene in “Zoolander” when Derek’s up against Hansel for the prize. But the truth is, the fashion industry takes this shiz for serious. While insiders would agree that Stone is clearly the obvious choice for ruling it in 2009, she’s not from the U.K. and, therefore, would not qualify to win the title at the British Fashion Awards held this week in Jolly Old. (See the red carpet pics here.) Georgia Jagger, daughter of Sir Mick and supermodel Jerry Hall, however, is the English rose who took the title home, beating out other rock progeny Daisy Lowe (Gavin Rossdale’s daughter) and former Burberry girl Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. Actually, after a year involving that Vanity Fair story and that tres scandalous Hudson jeans ad, it makes sense. Could Georgia be the next supermodel? Maybe she already is? Keep reading »
