Cracking The Dress Code On Holiday Parties

Black tie. Creative black tie. Cocktail. Casual Chic. We’re guessing you have an idea of what half of these dress code terms mean, but the other half is rather confusing. Dress codes are not only becoming more popular, but are also becoming more obscure. “It used to be it was either no dress code at all or black tie. There was nothing in between, and now it seems like every invitation you get has some variation on a theme that is just incredibly confusing,” says Hope Greenberg of Lucky.Thankfully, Greenberg deciphers these dress codes just in time for your holiday party.

What Should Barack Obama Wear To The Inaugural Ball?

We’ve already seen major designers’ sketches showing what they think Michelle Obama should wear to the Inaugural Ball, but we can’t forget the man of the hour and his wardrobe choices, now can we? WWD asked a handful of menswear designers for Inauguration Day and Night outfits for Barack Obama, who will certainly look dapper in whatever he chooses — after all, he’s been on more magazine covers than most supermodels. Above, a few of our favorite options. [WWD]

Christian Louboutin To Make Barbie Shoes For Her 50th Birthday

As you know, Barbie’s turning 50 next year, but don’t worry, she isn’t going to start wearing orthopedic shoes any time soon. Christian Louboutin is designing a pair of pumps in Barbie Pantone 219 Pink that will make their debut at the Mattel runway show during February’s fashion week in New York. “I guess I always had a little ‘girlie side’ who liked Barbie,” Louboutin said. “Barbie needs to wear great shoes because every girl needs to wear great shoes.” Wouldn’t it be cool if he made the soles pink instead of his signature red?

Crave: Toss Designs Resort Cosmetic Cases

Haven’t changed your cosmetic case in a while? We bet it’s pretty yucky in there, what with the eyeliner remnants and goops of lip gloss. Since a cosmetic case can get pretty funky, our main requirement is that it’s lined in vinyl, like these from Toss Designs. But it has to be pretty, too. These cases are constructed of leopard-print pony hair. We’ve seen other accessories made of pony hair, but never a cosmetic case. They’re so chic we might carry the larger one as a clutch.

Carla Bruni-Sarkozy Unhappy With Purse Featuring Her Naked

Carla Bruni-Sarkozy is none too pleased that clothing maker Pardon is using a nude photo of her on a tote bag without her consent, and she’s seeking $167,000 in damages, which, if she wins her claim, would be donated to charity. The bag features a silk-screened version of a 1993 photograph taken during Bruni-Sarkozy’s modeling days. (A print of the photo sold for $91,000 in April.) A speech bubble coming out of the nude First Lady of France’s mouth reads, “My guy should have bought me Pardon!” Bruni-Sarkozy is protesting Pardon’s use of her image without her consent and for commercial gain, as the company sells the bags for around $4 and gives them to customers who make purchases in their stores.

Tom Ford’s Rules Of Style

Style icon Tom Ford gives the latest issue of Details his personal rules of style. As the man best known for resurrecting the Gucci brand and bringing back glam and whose latest turn is as a Hollywood movie director, Ford knows a thing or two about cultivating personal style. While he gears this set of tips towards the fashionably-minded male population, many of his suggestions would be well-heeded by fashionistas, as well: being a good listener is sexy, dress yourself intuitively, and Botox can be a blessing. Of course, it wouldn’t be Ford if he didn’t offer up something totally outrageous. In his final tip on the list, he advises: “There’s one indulgence every man should try in his lifetime: If you’re straight, sleep with a man at least once, and if you’re gay, don’t go through life without sleeping with a woman.” He adds: “In the end, it’s just another person that you are relating to in a physical way.” Oh, Tom. You’ll always be our number one HILF. So do you think Tom’s last tip should apply to women, too? Should a straight women sleep with a woman at least once in her lifetime, and should a lesbian sleep with a man at least once in her lifetime? [The Cut] Keep reading »

Tips From A Recessionista: Five Ways To Stay Fabulous On A Budget

I admit, I’m pretty much a walking gender stereotype — I like shopping, getting pedicures, grabbing drinks with the girls after work, obsessing about my hair, and lusting over other woman’s awesome boots. I also hate when models brag about how they can eat anything without gaining an ounce, and I have an unhealthy addiction to gossip sites, but that may be taking it a bit too far. The point is, I embrace my girlishness and I’m not about to give up any of the fun parts about being a chick just because the economy is tanking. So I’ve decided to embrace my inner recessionista, who frankly, wasn’t all that hard to find (she also goes by the name “cheap”). Before thriftiness was a necessity, I picked up a few tips about living fabulously without spending a bundle. After the jump are my five favorite tips for embracing your inner recessionista…
