What a difference a week makes. Less than seven days ago, Katie Holmes was in the throes of announcing her divorce from Tom Cruise. But now? She’s focused on fashion. Holmes has had a fashion line with stylist Jeanne Yang — called Holmes & Yang — since 2009. It’s currently available exclusively at Barneys New… More »
Fan BingBing is a major star in her native China, where she’s managed to eek out a dual career as both a film star and a pop singer. That means you can find her on multiple red carpets in a month, wearing multiple gorgeous and effervescent gowns.
This month, BingBing’s been granted a… More »
As wise poet and personal role model LuAnn deLesseps once crowed — actually she autotuned it — “money can’t buy you class.” Money also can’t buy you style, as evidenced by the wide array of horribly ugly pants on offer by high end designers these days. Do you have $600 and no abiding sense of… More »
Feral Childe is the creation of bicoastal design team Moriah Carlson and Alice Wu. They make simple, comfortable clothing in amazing fabrications, often creating clothes out of their collaborative drawings. You might remember them from a fairly recent kerfuffle with Forever 21, after the chain store ripped off a rather unique pattern the brand made. More »
Hold on to your sparkles, Betsey Johnson, fashion’s original wild child, is primed to get her own reality TV show on the Style Network later this year. Tentatively titled “Betsey + Lulu,” the show will follow Ms. Johnson and her daughter Lulu’s adventures and mishaps. The show is slated to focus on the relationship between… More »
Iris Apfel is the grand dame of quirky, eccentric style. And luxury shoe maker Jimmy Choo wanted to honor Apfel’s signature look by designing a shoe after her. Dubbed the Iris, the five-inch heel will almost certainly never be worn by the diminutive 90-year-old New Yorker. And we’re not sure who else will be picking… More »

A new collection from Rizzoli gathers around 100 of Dior’s signature styles and gives us a historical tour through the designer’s ample closets. Shot by Patrick Demarchelier, Dior Couture re-positions… More »
So, aside from getting to play future-lesbian (we think, anyway) daughter Sally Draper on “Mad Men,” the extremely articulate and thoughtful Kiernan Shipka has a couple other tricks up her sleeve. The 11-year-old actress mostly dresses in vintage-y frocks from Portuguese designer Papo d’Anjo, but she also designs and wears her own bespoke creations, inspired… More »
It seems that the Playboy Club is enjoying something of a renaissance. First, there’s the sure-to-be-a-hit NBC show, “The Playboy Club,” debuting this fall, which takes place in the swinging ’60s. And now, the design team Marchesa has revamped the bunny costume for the club’s London location in the form of a delicious feather and… More »
“Recently I watched every episode of ‘Jersey Shore”s first season. I don’t know if it was any good and I certainly didn’t learn anything, but it was definitely hypnotic and it gave my brain a vacation.”– Marc Jacobs on his “appreciation” for a certain reality TV show. Let’s hope this means we’ll never see one… More »
Miu Miu has some explaining to do. Somehow, the exact same dress from the Fall 2010 runway just appeared on the three different magazine covers, meaning the editors at British Vogue, British Elle, AND W are none too pleased! Now technically, there are a few variations in the design: while the colors are different, the… More »
After seeing the film “The Bucket List,” I got to thinking about everything I want to accomplish while on this earth.

While you wait for Don Draper’s cigarette-smoking, alcohol-swilling hotness to return, the costume designer for “Mad Men” devised a solution to cure your withdrawal. After dressing Joan, Betty, and the boys in vintage designs for the past few seasons, Janie Bryant decided to launch her very own collection for QVC, obviously inspired by her work… More »
I’ll admit it. I was a HUGE fan of Eat, Pray, Love when the book was originally released, and even suggested it to all of my girlfriends, aunts, cousins, and extended family members. But with the soon-to-be-released movie on the horizon, this is no longer just a surprise bestselling book seen in the hands of… More »
