Mr. Blackwell’s Worst Dressed Of The Last Decade

The chief of the fashion police Mr. Blackwell died from complications from an intestinal infection on Sunday in Los Angeles. He was a little-known dress designer when he released his first worst-dressed list in 1960. But his tongue-in-cheek criticism of celebrity fashion became an annual event. Although Mr. Blackwell has skewered many celebrities for their fashion felonies, he said most of the women were people he genuinely admired for their talent if not their fashion sense. “The list is and was a satirical look at the fashion flops of the year,” he said in 1998. “I merely said out loud what others were whispering. … It’s not my intention to hurt the feelings of these people. It’s to put down the clothing they’re wearing.” To that end, we’ve put together a slideshow of the women who have made Mr. Blackwell’s list in the last 10 years. [MSNBC] Keep reading »

Fashion Slideshow: Trench Coats

As Tim Gunn would say on his “Guide To Stye”, a trench coats is one of the 10 essential items every woman needs in her closet. Personally, I think a trench coast IS the perfect coat because you can dress it up and dress it down and it’s always totally timeless and classic. Think about it — Jackie O and Audrey Hepburn were wearing the same kind of trenches you can buy now back in their hey day. Anyhoo, after the jump, some classic and not-so-classic trenches that belong in your closet. Keep reading »

Boo-tiful Halloween-Inspired Jewelry

Sure, dressing up for Halloween is fun and all, but buying a costume that you’ll wear for one night seems like a waste of money. We suggest you put together an ensemble from your own closet, then splurge on a little piece of jewelry that invokes that spirit of the season but can be worn all year. Diamonds make spiders seem a whole lot more appealing, don’t they?

Nippies For Your Nipples

On last week’s episode of “The Rachel Zoe Project,” crybaby assistant stylist Brad Goreski got busted for forgetting to leave Rachel a fashion kit with which to style Cameron Diaz for the Academy Awards. That kit includes nipples covers — as Brad explains: “[I]f one of our clients is wearing a chiffon dress, and it is cold outside, we’ll have pokey nipples!” God forbid a women should have protruding mammary papillae! As it turns out, if you’re looking to go bare but not go there, Bristols 6 makes the Nippies brand nipple covers that Zoe favors. The pasties style comes in a wide variety of shapes and colors: butterflies or stars, glittery or sequined, Rio hearts or Pucci patterned.

In fact, I would ever wearing them on warm days, casual Fridays, and the day after picking up my laundry from the cleaners. Keep reading »

Fashion Slideshow: Rockin’ Socks

We have officially entered boot season, which means we have also entered sock season, unless you enjoy developing awful blisters on your Achilles tendons. While getting dressed this morning, I realized I only have athletic ankle socks and a pair of red socks decorated with green Christmas trees. Today, I went with the holiday socks, even though they clash with my pink dress; Only I will see them, after all. But a girl needs more than one pair to get through winter — and everyone needs a pair of slipper socks (last photo) to prevent numb toes while lounging. Keep reading »
