You’ll Be One Stylish Present Wearing Kate Spade’s Bow Accessories

While some clothing companies sew sequins on a sweater and call it holiday attire, Kate Spade takes a more original approach, turning the classic bows that get stuck on top of presents into hair accessories, ballet flats, necklaces, and, our personal favorite, rings. These aren’t accessories you’d wear year-round, but it sure would be fun to bring them out every November through New Year’s — and maybe on our birthday, too. Keep reading »

How To Rock Lip Liner The Right Way

Do you use lip liner? Mostly I find it a waste of time, but there are loads of reasons why I should get on the lip liner bandwagon: Lip color has more staying power, color doesn’t “bleed” or feather out of your lip borders and your lips do look ever so slightly bigger when they’re lined. Now for the reason why I don’t wear it—it’s got a bad rep. All I think of when I hear lip liner are those early ’90s looks with the very visible, two-different-toned lips where all you saw was a line traced around the mouth that was many shades darker than the actual lip color.

Well, Marion Cotillard proves, above, that lip liner can be subtle and you don’t even have to wear dark, heavy, matte lipstick to make it work. Here she is, working the red carpet last night with a pretty and chic pout. If you look really closely at the blown-up photo, you’ll notice the lip liner. So how do you make liner work for you? Well … Keep reading »

Chanel Debuts New Magazine, “31 Rue Cambon”

Hey, here’s something we might actually be able to afford the next time we walk into a Chanel boutique! Behold the premiere issue of 31 Rue Cambon, a new magazine from Chanel that will be distributed in stores. The editor of uber-hip Purple magazine, Olivier Zahm, designed the fashion publication, and posted this pretty preview pic of the mag on the Purple blog. (Which, by the way, is a cool place to find stylish and artsy photographs.) [purple Diary] Keep reading »

Naomi Campbell Has A Kind Of Awesome Side

For once, controversial supermodel Naomi Campbell is making headlines for something other than cell phone beatdowns. I don’t know how long she’s been involved in charity work (maybe it’s been overshadowed by her more notorious exploits), but evidently she visits Africa often and is the global ambassador for the White Ribbon Alliance, an international coalition for maternal health, which is holding its annual general meeting in Tanzania, where a woman dies in childbirth every hour. To raise money, she helped organize the Fashion for Relief charity featuring local designers, and gave a talk from the runway, which she used as a platform for another cause as well:

“Where do we see a woman of color in an advert? It’s quite blatant. There’s definitely space for more black models but has there been enough effort? It was getting better but it’s slipped back this year. Women of color who have had a great experience in life need to share their experiences with others. The world is not made up of blonde hair and blue eyes. We need to share ourselves.”

Maybe she hired some spin doctors to fix up her image, but we like this new direction for Naomi, as crusader of change for the fashion industry and doing important charity work. Hey, it worked for Angelina. [Daily Mail] Keep reading »

6 Tips For Wearing A Belt Well

In the wake of last week’s belts slide show, we had a lot of readers asking exactly how to add a belt to an outfit without messing it up. The biggest issue seemed to be the “scrooching around” that can be rather difficult to avoid when pairing a belt with certain items. Because we’ve been there and we love you, dear readers, we’ve got a few tips and tricks …

Check This Out: “Audrey Hepburn: International Cover Girl”

Sometimes it’s more interesting to look at a life through secondary sources. Most of Audrey Hepburn‘s most iconic images come straight from old film stills or famous movie posters (raise your hand if at one point you had a “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” poster in your room … or still do). Now’s the chance to reflect on how the rest of the world framed the star in a new book called Audrey Hepburn: International Cover Girl. The stunning tome compiles tons of magazine covers that Ms. Hepburn graced, many of which you’ve probably never seen before. The collection puts the star in global perspective by digging up shoots from international publications in languages so obscure, we definitely can’t identify them off the bat. And yes, the clothes are insane.

The thing is, we kind of want to rip this book to shreds. That is, just so we could frame our favorite images of Audrey, and put them back up on our walls. Check out a couple of images after the jump! [Grazia]

Should I Get A Cut Or Color First?

I go to two separate hairdressers for my cut and color, yet often I like to schedule both appointments within a few days of each other to take care of my hair as quick as I can. Perhaps you also have stylists you stay loyal to, or you’re pressed for time and need to make two different visits—which do you do first, the cut or the color? Keep reading »

Be The Life Of The Party By Lighting Up The Party


Wowwwww. Check out this amazing “Galaxy” gown created by CuteCircuit design duo Francesca Rosella and Ryan Genz. Illuminated by 24,000 tiny, lightweight LED lights, the dress is totally wearable and powered by iPod batteries. The circuits and Swarovski crystals are layered on silk “so the LED fabric can move like normal fabric with lightness and fluidity,” the designers report. And it’s eco-friendly, using as much electricity as two household light bulbs. Keep reading »

Put Your Shirt Back On, Chloe

Fashion editors swooned over the lingerie trend on the runways. I’ll admit, I loved it too. A hint of sexiness is a great look — one which certain girls can pull off. But what I’ve recently learned is that when that particular trend made its way into reality, it simply doesn’t work. Chloe Sevigny just showed off her bra-as-a-top outfit at the Prada party in Los Angeles, and I’m kind of regretting my original love for the lingerie look. Sure, she’s a celeb and it’s a red carpet affair, but to me, and I’m sure most of the party-goers, it just looks like she walked out of the house in the middle of getting dressed. Am I the only one who thinks it looks just like she forgot to put on a shirt? It’s like a bad dream when you realize you’re not fully clothed, but this is reality. Yikes! Keep reading »
