Anne Hathaway Apologizes For Her Valentino Oscar Snub

Anne Hathaway owed someone an apology regarding her appearance on Oscar night (and no, that “someone” isn’t all of us after we were forced to stare at what appeared to be her nipples all evening).

First Look: The First Issue Of Carine Roitfeld’s New Magazine Goes Public

Carine Roitfeld Partners With M.A.C. To Create Her Own Twenty-Piece Collection

Carine Roitfeld is one of the most recognizable names in the fashion industry, but she doesn’t have the same notoriety here in America as she does overseas, where the former Vogue Paris mogul is an icon with equal leverage to that other famous editrix, Anna Wintour.

7 Celebs Who Rock All Black (But Aren’t Goths)

As you can surmise from the outfit I wore yesterday, I love a good all-black look. I’m not ashamed to reveal that black is without a doubt the predominant color (neutral?) in my wardrobe. It is, of course, the consummate color (shade?) to wear — it’s chic, it slims, and it goes with anything and…

Carine Roitfeld Thinks Borrowing Clothes Is In Bad Taste

“I think it’s terrible to wear borrowed clothes. I don’t think it’s chic. A couple of years ago, Azzedine Alaïa loaned me a coat that I wore to New York. It was photographed a lot, and everyone wanted to buy it afterward. When I went to return it, Azzedine said, ‘No, you keep it. There’…

French Vogue Wants Your Little Girls

It’s not unusual for little girls to have an innocent romp in their moms’ closets every once in a while. But what happens when the closet they’re romping in happens to belong to French Vogue?

Looks Like Carine Roitfeld Didn’t Exactly “Resign” From French Vogue

We like to think that we are nice people. So when we heard that French Vogue editor Carine Roitfeld was leaving her job for bigger and brighter things, we didn’t second-guess her, but instead said, “Yay! Good for you! Have fun!

Frisky Charticle: The History Of Pantslessness

French Vogue editor Carine Roitfeld is my mom’s age. So why in God’s name is she going pantsless in lace tights and hooker boots, forcing us to be sick all over the place? I don’t care what people say about age being just a number, 55 is far too high a number for this Lady…
