It’s not every day that Karl Lagerfeld deems a fashionista worthy of being photographed in Coco Chanel’s iconic former Paris home at 31 Rue Cambon, so it’s kind of remarkable that he chose Victoria Beckham over someone like, say, Blake Lively. I totally thought Blake was his dress-up doll of choice these days. I do have to hand it to Posh for her seamless transition from Spice Girl and football WAG into a well-respected style icon and designer; there aren’t many former pop stars who ever enjoy the same level of high-fashion success. Victoria tweeted photos this week from a recent shoot for Elle France, where she appears alongside Lagerfeld modeling pieces from her new eyewear collection. What she doesn’t model, however, is pants, and that is completely understandable — if my legs looked like that, I wouldn’t wear pants, either. [Celebitchy]
Game over, everybody. Solange Knowles, in head-to-toe Dolce & Gabbana baroque and just dripping in gold, wins. It’s terrycloth sweatpants and old sports bras for me from here on out.
Olivia Palermo! Why is she still famous? We have no idea, but we covet the hell out of her glossy chestnut hair and laid-back luxe wardrobe ― I guess you could say she’s kind of our Regina George. We’ve long shunned turtlenecks, but her fresh take on this thick, chunky fisherman-inspired knit breathes new life into the old winter stalwart. You can make like Olivia and layer a fur vest over the traditional down version for extra core warmth to weather the temperature drop, or leave the North Face at home for a night out. Keep reading »
What you are looking at right now is a fine example of Cate Blanchett‘s sartorial black magic: she can pull off anything, even (and perhaps especially) the most high-fashion, higher-risk of garments like this Proenza Schouler dress, and make it work. Seriously, the image depicts both a metal ladder and a man with a butterfly net covered in perforations (see: trypophobia), and I still think she looks amazing. That’s just unnatural.
Not only did Olivia Wilde give a fiercely awesome (and hilariously revealing!) monologue alongside other female game changers at Glamour‘s “These Girls” event, but she also managed to look pretty damn fierce while doing so. The starlet, accompanied by boyfriend Jason Sudeikis, had the honor of finishing off the evening’s performances with her own frank, honest tale (namely, of how her failed marriage caused her vagina to die). We totally covet her leather-heavy look, but it’s just a little unrealistic for every day (non-celebrity) wear — switch out her leather leggings for a pair of coated skinny jeans, and you’ve got yourself an outfit that’s casual and chic while still being, you know, completely badass, just like Olivia herself.

This rosy look is amazing on Christina Hendricks, right? It’s incredibly flattering to her coloring ― she looks gorgeous and natural but not washed out or underdone. These pale shades may not work for everyone, but any skin tone can adapt a similar look by using deeper colors that echo the undertones of the complexion. But for fair skin, sometimes all you really need to brighten up a pale situation (especially in the cooler months, when everything’s a little dull and dry) is a little bit of eyeliner and touches of a color that mimics your natural flush.
