Last night, Chanel threw a big splashy party in honor of the Tribeca Film Festival–the Chanel TriBeCa Film Festival “Artists Dinner,” specifically–and it was attended by a bunch of legitimately famous actresses/fashion people and also a bunch of people famous for going to things like Chanel parties.
Guess who’s who and see what they wore, ahead. More
Don’t tell anyone I told you this, but “beauty” stories can be kind of boring sometimes. I mean, how many different ways are there to tell someone to put their hair up in a ponytail, along with step-by-step instructions no one is ever going to follow because we all know how to put our hair in ponytails already?

Case in point: in an effort to keep their May beauty story lively, Marie Claire UK enlisted fashion plate/TV presenter/”cookie cutter hipster” Alexa Chung, ostensibly to illustrate the various “beauty techniques” they recommend, but really so we could all gaze upon close-ups of her stupid sexy face. Don’t believe me? Look at how basic all of these “tips” are. More

The 2013 Grammy Awards took place last night and few Grammys ceremonies have ever presented us with so many genuinely god awful dresses. While looking through our colleague Samantha’s fantastic live coverage of the red carpet last night, we realized two things: 1) Sam is a lot more generous than us and 2) there’s no fucking way anyone can make a reasonable best dressed list out of this caravan of nightmares.
So, we decided to reframe our usual awards ceremony post-mortem best dressed list as, simply, The Least Offensive Dressed. Let’s try our best. More
The amfAR Gala To Kick Off Fall 2013 Fashion Week went down last night and, naturally, a bunch of famous fashion folks showed up (and Lindsay Lohan). Considering the attendees, we were surprised to find that the red carpet looks were almost remarkably bad. Let’s take a tour. More

Famous people lead cool lives where they don’t have to do anything ever but they have millions of dollars. In order to fill their days (and provide some semblance of time) they dress up in elaborate, nonsensical Halloween costumes (they … More
Chanel had a splashy party last night, celebrating its the 80th anniversary of the ‘Bijoux De Diamants’ collection created by Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel.

They pretty much all wore Chanel, doye. More
