This week actress Michelle Monaghan turned it out for the Vogue event at Saks Fifth Avenue in NYC–they were celebrating the opening of their new and improved third designer-packed floor–along with a slew of other celebs including Anna Wintour fave Charlize Theron. Anyways, Michelle really pulled off the inner lower eyelid lining thing—and it ain’t that easy to do. So many people try lining the inner rim of their eyes and hate either the results (teeny-looking eyes) or the process (getting that pencil so freaking close to your eyeball!). But if you’re someone who doesn’t mind getting in there and working it with the eyeliner, check out my eye-widening liner tip, after the jump! (I swear your eye really will look ginorm.)

There’s really nothing like a good collaboration in fashion because it’s as if two creative minds have merged in one and created something totally unique, like Anna Sui for Target or Manolo Blahnik for Rachel Roy. During the madness before Monarchy’s Spring 2010 collection, between a Janice Dickinson sighting and Robert Verdi on-air moments, Vanessa and Angela Simmons discussed their own design collaboration dreams with us.”Betsey Johnson! She would be, wow,” the sisters gushed in unison. “We also love the boys from DSquared. There are just so many great fashion designers right now, but those would be are our two top ones. They have so much fun with fashion.” Will we see Pastry for Betsey Johnson next season, along with a trio of cartwheels? Keep reading »

According to Loic Prigent, director of the fashion documentary “The Day Before,” there’s one question designers never want to answer: “”What is your inspiration?’ is the number one enemy in fashion journalism now. They really hate it when you ask it,” Prigent admits. [Wall Street Journal]
Yet, while Marc Jacobs might be dodgy about his collection’s meaning, other designers are just fine accrediting their fuel for creativity—teen fashion bloggers. The group has gained momentum in the past year to become the new power youth, with 13-year-old Tavi as one at the forefront (pictured above, and, BTW, she looks like she also enjoys putting cute crap on her head). After the Rodarte designers saw Tavi’s blog, they started corresponding with the teenager, and Tavi has become the label’s muse. Says co-designer Kate Mulleavy, “Tavi makes you think about things differently, makes you see things differently.” Also cited as sources of inspiration were Bryan Boy and Jane from Sea of Shoes.
Well, you know what they say—the children are our future. And in this case, they’re telling us what we’ll be wearing tomorrow. [Wall Street Journal] Keep reading »
In writing about “Passion tips: your erotic and romantic love story,” I talked about designing your love room with words. In fact, with a tiny bit of ingenuity, you can turn your bedroom into a place of serenity and loving passion.
For years I have loved and referred to a book by Claire Cooper Marcus called House As a Mirror of Self: Exploring the Deeper Meaning of Home. This afternoon I took a walk through the Brown campus, stopped at a tiny deli, and one of the local papers had an article talking about her work. She believes that your home reflects your feelings about yourself.
If you are fretting about not having enough loving taking place in your home, here are some tips for turning your bedroom into a passion place — not the ancient Pompeii brothel as pictured here — but certainly a place that creates an aura of quiet love and erotic passion.

Backstage at Cynthia Rowley, I spotted a new ‘do that some of you ladies out there (and certain people around here) are going to love. The curled bang look created by hairstylist Bok-Hee is just as retro as Simcha’s usual pompadour, but, as Bok-Hee told me, it has “a little modern twist.” To create the bang, Bok-Hee combed a section of hair forward and rolled it over a hair donut she had cut to fit the model’s forehead, pinning it into place. The rest of the hair was slicked back into a pony, and that’s it! This could also be a pretty slick way to try bangs before you commit to cutting your hair. Just pair with this purple MAC shadow they blended together to give the look a modern edge. Keep reading »
