Gaga in rainbows, Gaga in glitter, and now, Gaga envisioned as a gay butterfly and gothic gold-encrusted fairy on two special covers of V magazine. Is there anything fashion magazine stylists won’t do to this woman? [Racked] Keep reading »
Three things we love: T-shirts, sequins, and world peace. The combination of all three, for less than 20 bucks? Yes, please.
Mena Suvari wore Theory’s Sequined Silk Dress for a night of partying with her husband, Simone Sestito, at Trousdale Nightclub in West Hollywood over the weekend. I appreciate her combination of casual pieces, like the tote bag and suede pumps, with the dressier items–her sequined dress and tuxedo jacket. But since most people aren’t in the market for a $595 dress, I found a less expensive one to wear instead. Find out how to get a similar look as Mena’s for your next special night out. Keep reading »
Designers do different, very specific things well. Burberry, for example, knocks it out of the park with coats, yet charges almost $300 for an ill-fitting polo. When it comes to well-executed sparkles, Gryphon is queen. Yes, they sometimes overdo it — as people who are into shiny clothes are wont to do — but they frequently manage to make sequins and rhinestones look badass, not diva. My favorite is their matte silver tee with black chiffon drape for $325. Yes, that’s expensive, but before you start vomiting at the thought of it, consider its many uses: worn simply with jeans, paired with trousers, tucked into a high-waisted skirt for a cocktail party, paired with a mini for a night out. I dare your other T-shirts to do all of those things. [$325, Saks Fifth Avenue] Keep reading »
We’ve jumped on the sequins bandwagon a time or two, but even we know that sparkles are best administered in small, neutral doses. Obviously, this woman, doesn’t read The Frisky (sucks for her, right?). We’re still not sure which is more horribly tragic: the pink, orange, and red sequins or the large, zany graphic print?
