Jessica Chastain has turned in a string of startling performances since landing on Hollywood’s radar with Tree of Life–she’s been hugely in demand as an actress ever since. She’s also drawn a lot of attention for her good style, something Vogue apparently noticed: the magazine’s December cover dropped today and Chastain has the featured spot. She looks incredible.
So, in honor of Chastain’s arrival as a bona fide fashion star, here’s a sampling of some of our favorite red carpet looks she’s worn since coming out of nowhere in 2011. More
There was a lot of premiering afoot last night! From New York to London to Madrid to Berlin, stars and wannabes alike stepped out on red carpets in their stylists’ finest. Here’s what they wore. More
Cate Blanchett is an extremely talented, intelligent woman. ..The Gloss, however, is a fashion and beauty site, which means we have to focus on a very specific aspect of Blanchett’s career–primarily, what she wears on the red carpet. Occasionally, we’re … More
First of all, a quick note about that headline: by “serious,” we obviously don’t mean solemn or thoughtful in character, nor do we mean having dangerous possible consequences. Celebrities getting makeovers certainly has no substantive impact on society and we … More
Hermès insists it “can be used for play”–and thank fucking god for that. Who’d want a branded blue basketball museum piece?
…Well, the sort of person who’d want a Chanel surfboard, probably, or a Louis Vuitton soccer ball or an Alexander Wang jump rope. Which all exist, obviously–and there’s more in the gallery ahead. More

While they are pretty much universally agreed upon to be exploitative, classist bullshit, unpaid internships are a sad fact of the fashion industry. (And other industries, but I won’t get into that now.) If you want any hope of ever getting paid, you have to work for free first. A lot. But believe it or not, some countries actually enforce their labor laws where unpaid internships are concerned, and this landed the Alexander McQueen brand in a bit of hot English water recently.

Not content to retire with a truck full of money, Jimmy Choo co-founder Tamara Mellon is launching a new line that includes a leopard-print pony fur coat. More
Yesterday, word broke that serial modelizer Adam Levine had reunited with his on-again, off-again girlfriend, Victoria’s Secret angel Behati Prinsloo. Not only that, they reunited via an engagement.
Though Prinsloo is well known in fashion circles, she may be a new face to those of us who don’t keep a mental backlog of every Prada exclusive of the last 20 years. More
Underlying notes of racism are all over the place in high fashion, but few recent stories have been quite as blatantly awful and outright disgusting as the alleged behavior of saleswomen in an Alexander McQueen store toward an African employee.
Forgive me, but I am more than a little livid. More
Earlier in the week, Maggie Gyllenhaal, a person whose name we will never learn to spell*, dropped by the premiere of White House Down wearing the bad peplum to end all bad peplums (well, excepting Kim Kardashian‘s maternity peplum pants; those were worse). The dress was Christian Dior, the peplum was knitted and floppy. While we loved the dress’ bodice, the whole look… was not good.
But! The actress redeemed herself in spades last night at the Gotham Magazine party celebrating her summer cover. More

Seriously, Sandra Lee’s Vivienne Westwood dress was eaten by a cockatoo. More
