Anna Wintour Waits In Line Like A Peasant & “The September Issue” Is Insanely Successful

There are certain things that people like Anna Wintour just do not do. Like eat, sleep or go to the bathroom. Waiting in line is one of these things. It just doesn’t happen. Or so we thought. But Wintour was snapped waiting in line to see “The September Issue” [again] over the weekend. And not only was Madame Wintour waiting in line just like a common peasant, she was also wearing jeans, a t-shirt and flats. [Gawker]

Really, there are so many things wrong with this picture that the mind reels. If she weren’t wearing the signature glasses and a bob so severe that it must be intended to dole out paper-cut-esque injuries to those who get too close, we might think that was a clever impersonator. But, apparently, the movie is well worth the wait and it brought in enough viewers to make it the fifth most successful documentary opening, umm, ever. Have you seen it yet!? Keep reading »

In Washington, D.C. Everyone Is A Style Star

We love “Scene In” WashingtonPost.com’s on-the-street video style series. It’s like The Sartorialist, if Sart shot video and lived near the White House. So far, the D.C. trend hunters have checked out Dupont Circle, Capitol Hill, and Jazz in the Garden, among other neighborhoods, and now they’ve hit the historic U Street district, where “everyone is, like, a style star in their own way.” What’s hot? Fresh striped shades, thrift store frocks, the Amber Rose look, Carlton Banks t-shirts, and color, color, color. [Scene In] Keep reading »

What’s Up With These Crazy (And Expensive!) Shoes?

We love designer Emma Cook, and clearly we’re crazy about Topshop, but we’re having a little trubs drumming up any affection for these new platforms. A product of their latest collaboration, the shoe (far left) costs a whopping $290, while the boots (middle and right) weigh in at $340. The height and chunkiness are totally on trend–we’ll give them that. I could even learn to love those animal prints. But for that amount of money, most ladies would probably rather invest in something more classic, right? I know I would. Thoughts on these shoes anyone? Keep reading »

How Much Are You Willing To Pay For An Eyebrow Wax?

Treating yourself to something girly is always fun, so this weekend, I booked myself my first appointment at Bliss Spa. But my guy looked at me like I sprouted a third eye amongst my unibrow fuzz when I shared the price of my eyebrow wax: $30, plus tip. “Thirty dollars!” He exclaimed. “But, whatever. It’s your money.” Keep reading »

Fashion Designer Who Raped Underage Women To Be Sentenced Today

While we sometimes hear rumors about what happens on casting couches — it’s even being touted as a story line in the upcoming CW show “The Beautiful Life” — it’s not often we actually learn of someone taking advantage of women trying to make it in tough industries.

Today, fashion designer Anand Jon Alexander, who was convicted of 14 counts, including forcible rape, will be sentenced in Los Angeles Superior Court for casting couch-related crimes. Keep reading »

What Fashion Insiders Think Of Glamour’s Plus-Size Model

We told you all about how much positive response Glamour magazine has received from readers for the image of a nude plus-size model featured in the September issue. Lizzie Miller has since appeared on “Today” and copies of the magazine are selling out. Catherine wondered whether the overwhelmingly positive response would result in magazines, and the fashion industry, finally recognizing that beauty comes in a variety of shapes and sizes and that they would start featuring more models like Miller on a regular basis. The Sartorialist’s Scott Schuman wrote on his blog, “When I am shooting on the street older women and larger size women often say ‘no’ to my request to shoot them…. I think they have a real suspicion about how the image will be used. I also think there continues to be a growing disconnect between the fashion community and ‘average’ women in general.”

If a recent blog post from “style expert and bon vivant” Adrien Field is any indication, we still have a long way to go. Keep reading »

Beauty Test Drive: Smooth Away Hair Removal Pads

I really hate shaving my legs. Then again, does anyone actually enjoy this activity? No matter what, I end up with a few nicks and bleeds. As for Nair? No way I would put up with the smell. And waxing? Forget it. Ouchy. So these doo-dads piqued my interest while I was in the drugstore the other day. (And weirdly, I realized that Smooth Away has been doing a ton of advertising in my neighborhood with posters at bus stops. Guess I was swayed.) But really, who isn’t interested in whether these things really work or not? The verdict, after the jump!

We’re Jonze-ing For “Where The Wild Things Are”-Inspired Jewelry

You may know Spike Jonze as the director of “Being John Malkovich,” the ex-husband of director Sofia Coppola, or the current paramour of actress Michelle Williams. But on the eve of the release of his latest movie project, a live-action adaptation of Where the Wild Things Are, he’s getting into the fashion business in a collaboration with Opening Ceremony. The mini-line’s theme ties in to the movie’s monster-y subjects and includes faux furs designed by Humberto Leon and claw jewelry designed by Pamela Love. After the jump, the metal horned look you can rock this fall. (Check out our “Where the Wild Things Are” inspiration board here.) [W] Keep reading »

Assad Mounser Jewelry Line Teaches Us A Lesson

We guess good things come to those who don’t wait. A year ago, Brooklynite Amanda Assad was working as a publicist for New York-based shoe designer Alejandro Ingelmo (check out his ultra high, dangerously sexy heels if you haven’t already). She started making jewelry in her spare time, and voilà! Now her oversize multiple charm necklaces (like this amazing rosary-inspired piece available at Otteny) are showing up in major fashion editorials, such as this one in Purple magazine. So I think we’ve all learned a very valuable lesson here today. Don’t slack! What’s your big idea? Keep reading »

The Futuristic, Fashionable Version Of Crocs

Architect Zaha Hadid is known for designing notable buildings and structures around the world, but lately she’s had an interest in fashion. Hadid created the container for Chanel Mobile Art, which traveled to Hong Kong, Tokyo, and New York and involved contemporary artists’ takes on the luxury brand’s classic quilted bag. Now, she’s designing accessories of her own in a partnership with Brazilian shoe company Melissa. The shoe company already produces crazy plastic shoes, and with Hadid’s help, they get even more futuristic. These aren’t cheap rubber Crocs, either, at $300 a pair. We won’t be at all surprised if we see these on Uhura‘s feet in the next Star Trek movie. [Epaulet via Style.com] Keep reading »
