Vintage Style Inspiration: Brigitte Bardot At Cannes Film Festival

As the world’s longest-running and most prestigious film festival, Cannes has a lot of history behind it. Since the exclusive gathering was first established in 1946, the picturesque coastal town situated on the French Riviera has seen the most illustrious names in cinema walk its shores. Like its younger incarnations (Sundance, Tribeca, et al.), the focus is placed not on big-name blockbusters but on the more majestic side of film and its artistic quality. Notable repeat attendees include Catherine Deneuve, Sophia Loren, Grace Kelly, Jane Birkin, Serge Gainsbourg, and — perhaps the most famous of faces associated with Cannes, or maybe even all of France (I mean, come on, she was the first woman to be Marianne) — Brigitte Bardot. The photographs of the sultry star exemplify the carefree, distinctly Gallic glamour of the beachside festival. Even if a ticket to Cannes isn’t in your (foreseeable) future, you can channel a bit of Bardot in your everyday life this summer, whether you’re basking on the sand or traversing the city streets.

Mother's Day
Everything you need to celebrate mom. Read More »

As far as mothers go, Gillian Darmody isn’t the best, but she’s certainly the most manipulative. This gangster moll was just a teenager when she was impregnated by the biggest political boss in the sordid snow-globe world of Prohibition-era Atlantic City. Fast forward twenty-five years and she’s the matriarch responsible for Jimmy Darmody, who is following in his illegitimate father’s footsteps as a hard and fast crook while his young mother continues her career as a showgirl and occasional mistress. What follows is a twisted web of scandal, sex, slaughter, and deceit, complete with an Oedipal love triangle and beyond. Gillian Darmody is one shady lady, but she has the kind of wardrobe that would drive any self-respecting flapper-lovin’ woman wild. After the jump, a few pieces to get you into the dancing mood, alcohol restriction and incest notwithstanding. Wear these individually to avoid the dreaded “Halloween costume” effect. Keep reading »

Vintage Style Inspiration: Brigitte Bardot

It’s easy to see why Brigitte Bardot was a style icon: she was a sex symbol, a trendsetter, and her outfits from the ’60s and ’70s still look fresh today. I’ve always loved this photo of her in cropped polka-dot pants, a simple white tank, and ballet flats. It’s so fresh and summery, and easy to recreate with this season’s printed denim trend. After the jump, our modern take on Brigitte’s outfit, and all the shopping details to get the look for yourself… Keep reading »

I’d never been to NYC before my trip last week (ridiculous, I know!), and I loved every New York minute of it, from the pizza and the crazy cab drivers to the Diptyque sample sale and even the bedbug scare. Whenever I travel, I love checking out the style of each city, and since New York is the fashion capital of the world, I had plenty of eye candy. New Yorkers are famous for wearing black, but other than that the city’s aesthetic is so diverse it’s tough to pin down the quintessential NYC outfit. That being said, here’s a style equation I spotted on the street many times: anorak, skinny jeans, knee-high boots, black tote bag, and trendy sunglasses. Want to get this simple, chic look for yourself? Check out shopping details after the jump! Keep reading »

Have you guys been watching “Sherlock,” the modern-day Sherlock Holmes series on the BBC? I just started watching last week and it is, like, shockingly awesome. (Sherlockingly awesome? No. Sorry. Nevermind.) The popularity of this show combined with the recent RDJ/Jude Law movie means general Sherlock hysteria has taken over the world, and I am INTO IT. Aesthetically, Sherlock Holmes is a little Steampunk, a little academic, and totally perfect for some winter style inspiration. Click through for shopping details…
