Happy Thursday, students! It’s time for an advanced lesson in print mixing, brought to you by professional do-nothing Olivia Palermo. I was so inspired by Olivia’s daring decision to combine three prints in one outfit that I just had to do a little Fashion Math of my own. Here are six ways to wear stripes, checks/plaids and polka dots — at the same time…
Gasp! The divinely talented, Oscar-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o is on the cover of the July issue of Vogue! And, surprise, surprise, she looks stunnnnnnninnnnnnng. The interview with Hamish Bowles is also interesting, detailing Nyong’o's childhood in Nairobi, where her father is currently a senator in the Kenyan parliament; catching the acting bug as a youngster performing plays for her family; her pursuit of a higher education at Hampshire College and then Yale; and the audition process for Patsy, her Oscar-winning role in “12 Years A Slave.” I especially love how she described seeing the finished film for the first time:
“I was really nervous about seeing myself … because it had been such a profound experience in all ways. I remember it being one of the most joyful times in my life—and also one of the most sorrowful. I didn’t want my experience to be a vain one. But I will say that when I watched it, my heartstrings were pulled so tight for Solomon that I couldn’t go into the ego trip. I cried—I mean, I was inconsolable. I wept for an hour after the movie.”

Theory: Khloe Kardashian is a messy eater and frequently drops food on her lap, so she bought these jeans with GAPING HOLES between her kneecaps and upper thighs, aka the spill zone, so they wouldn’t stain. If you have the same problem, you can buy a similar pair from Urban Outfitters. This egregiously destroyed denim trend is worthless otherwise. [Photo: INFDaily]
For the last few months, all I’ve heard fashion people saying is “normcore normcore normcore.” According to Wikipedia, normcore “is a unisex fashion trend characterized by unpretentious, average-looking clothing.” Normcore is basically “tourist at Disneyland” chic. Normcore is having style by not having any style, focusing on function and comfort instead. It’s also sort of what Jessica Alba is doing here, albeit with a few sneaky, fashion-y touches.

I can wear whatever I want to work, but I can imagine that summer would be a difficult season for those people who work in offices with stricter dress codes. Slacks and buttondowns on 95 degree days? Awful. Or maybe not! Here, Kaley Cuoco rocks a summer-y take on business casual, with trouser shorts replacing the pants and a sleeveless blouse standing in for the buttondown. Totes work appropriate, yeah? Keep reading »

You know, I gotta say, I think Rihanna looks incredible, but I hate the way the thong she’s wearing looks in front. It looks like those control-top Spanx panties. Like, either I don’t want to see the thong at all, or I want it to be skimpier. These panties look like what every bridesmaid has got under her too-small body-con dress. Otherwise? DAT ASS. Flawless.

There is such a fine line between classy animal print and tacky animal print, and normally I can count on the Hilton sisters to sashay past that line by a mile. But somehow, someway, Nicky Hilton’s leopard-print dress is working, even though I usually don’t love that bright-yellow/gold hue. I think I like it because of her dressed-down way of styling it, with simple ballet flats, tortoise shell shades and a army green field jacket. Shit, even that contrasting Chanel crossbag box purse is an unexpected touch. Nicky Hilton, who have you become? (Get the look for yourself, including Nicky’s actual dress, after the jump!)
