Style Inspiration: Team USA Women’s Gymnastics

We’ve said it before, but we’ll say it again: we looooove our women’s gymnastics team! Gabby, McKayla, Jordyn, Kyla, and Aly [So many Ys! -- Editor] put on an amazing show and took home a stack of well-deserved gold medals for their efforts (I totally cried when Aly landed the final combination in her floor routine–did you?). These young women have us doing somersaults in our living rooms, and that’s not all: suddenly we want a sparkly red wardrobe to match their gorgeous leotards. You too?

Style Inspiration: Selina Kyle In “The Dark Knight Rises”

I wasn’t sure about Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle (aka Catwoman), but after seeing “The Dark Knight Rises” this weekend, I am totally on board. Anne’s Selina was brilliant, strong, complex, and clever–the perfect match for Batman as both an enemy and a love interest. Not to mention the fact that Selina Kyle has maaaaad style. I’m dying to bring some edgy Catwoman vibes into my wardrobe. You too? Check out the shopping details, after the jump! Keep reading »

Style Inspiration Taken From 4 Very Famous Literary Leading Ladies

Movies may offer you your favorite characters served up live on the big screen, but books allow your imagination to run wild. Sure, they describe details of appearance, and mannerism, and style of dress, but it’s up to you to fill in the blanks. The film versions are often disappointing when they don’t live up to the image in your mind’s eye, but sometimes they’re truly spot-on — like these ladies, who happen to have been plucked from the pages of four books and reincarnated onscreen in overwhelmingly effective ways. They all were given distinct style entities in their respective books, but it’s the movies that made them real, and I have to admit that live action did them more than appropriate justice. After the jump, a series of style inspirations straight out of some of my very favorite pages…

Unlikely Style Inspiration: Summer Camp

I’m not a big fan of summer camp. Probably because the one time I went to summer camp every other camper in my cabin got violently ill, I had to deflect projectile vomit with my sleeping bag, the counselors vaguely accused me of poisoning everyone, and–unrelated but just as tragic–my favorite soccer shorts got swept down the river, never to be seen again. Whether your camp memories are positive, negative, or nonexistent, it’s easy to appreciate the laid back style of this summer tradition. Get the camp-y look for yourself, after the jump!

TRAILER PARK
See Keira Knightley as "Anna Karenina"...

Confession: I have never read Anna Karenina. Is that, like, a weird thing? Has everybody read it except me? If that’s the case, then don’t spoil the whole thing for me quite yet, because the trailer for the new film adaptation just came out and I am feeling it. I love period films, high society, Russia (represent), Jude Law (!!), and Keira Knightley (!!!), so it’s kind of my dream. (I hope the book makes for an acceptable poolside read, because that’s where I plan on getting my Russian tragedy on this weekend.) It goes without saying that I’m also head over heels with the style aspect of the forthcoming film: lush, heavy fabrics, rich colors, over-the-top opulence, and, rising like a storm cloud over the incredible beauty and passion, a prevailing undercurrent of dread. Oooooh. Check out the trailer for the film (out November 9th) above and, after the jump, my take on some Anna Karenina style inspiration. I do hope you like fur. Keep reading »

Summer Style Inspiration: Nancy Sinatra

The moment I saw this photo of Nancy Sinatra with thick black eyeliner and an entire bouquet of flowers in her hair, I knew I had found my summer style inspiration. It might be too hot to wear her signature thigh-high boots, but the rest of Nancy’s famous flower child look is perfect for beach weekends and summer barbecues. Get the look for yourself, after the jump! Keep reading »

Style Inspiration: Elizabeth Taylor

Elizabeth Taylor has long been on our style inspiration radar, but her memory is more alive than ever now what with that trainwreck Lindsay Lohan depicting her in a très highbrow Lifetime film. The horror! Elizabeth (who actually loathed being called Liz) was, unlike Lindsay, shambolic in the best way possible, the hottest mess that ever lived. She was a genetic mutant born with double rows of eyelashes, a violet-eyed lush and lover who was famous for her roles, her romances, and her prevailing kindness. Let’s not forget her fashion influence: she helped to bring Valentino and Halston into demand, and when she passed away last year, her jewelry collection was rumored to be worth well over $150 million. They just don’t make movie stars like Elizabeth anymore. Keep reading »

Style Inspiration: Tuxedos, Redefined

When you hear the word “tuxedo” you probably think of George Clooney at the Oscars and hedge fund managers sipping champagne at stuffy black tie events. But as you can see, there’s a whole different side to the tuxedo: it’s a fun, feminine style to try out this summer in the form of chic shorts, crisp jackets, and cheeky swimsuits.
