Do you remember where you were the first time you saw Amy Heckerling’s seminal ’90s film “Clueless”? I was visiting my cousin in Honolulu and had just suffered extreme embarrassment during my first surfing attempt. We decided to take the edge off my shame by seeing “Clueless,” starring my then-style icon Alicia Silverstone, and it totally was just what the doctor ordered. “Clueless” must have had as much of an impact on Kimberly Gordon, the designer behind fashion line Wildfox Couture, because her latest lookbook is directly inspired by the film. Click through to see the models doing their best Cher, Dionne and Tai in various recreated scenes from the film. Classic! [I Love Wildfox]
Dammit, Madewell! Memorial Day weekend hasn’t even happened yet and you’re already pimping your fall 2012 line! And dammit again, Madewell, for making me want every single piece! Can’t a girl enjoy her summer wardrobe in peace? (Click through to see 20 of our favorite looks, many of which we’re sure to wear — or at least be inspired by — four months from now.)
Big, mainstream brands like J.Crew and Target have done an exceptional job turning their images around with the help of artful styling. In the case of the former, Jenna Lyons and a team of hip stylists create the kind of frothy tableaus you see here and lookbooks to compete with any high-fashion brand, and the latter gets the job done thanks to collaborations with “it” designers like Rodarte. Forever 21 has evolved into a more sophisticated brand as well, attracting plenty of over-21s who want to buy into their sweet, oh-so-sweetly priced trendy goods. We love ‘em! But when it comes to the professional styling game, it looks like this season at least, they have failed. No really. FAIL. [Nitrolicious]

Olsen-designed luxury line The Row has released images from its Spring/Summer 2009 lookbook. Looks like Mary-Kate and Ashley went with a tribal theme to complement their collection of luxed-up basics. Is it just us, or do you find some of these photos kind of creepy? Some even seem to have religious references.
Unlike other celeb lines, The Row has maintained success and acclaim by distancing itself from the Olsen name. Yet, we have to wonder, wouldn’t it just be better if MK and Ash modeled this stuff themselves? Everyone wants their wardrobes anyhow, they’re pretty girls, and the product is good. So what’s with the artsy-fartsy stuff? Check out some more pics from The Row’s line after the jump. [Fashion Copious] Keep reading »
