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

From the beginning, I’ve been pretty obsessed with fashion… More
The fashion industry is historically pretty fond of wearing dead animals. Despite its legacy as a luxury material, however, designers tend to obscure the origin of their fur–few people like being reminded of all the suffering and sinew that goes into a pricey coat.

Last night, we reacted to the Golden Globes red carpet. This morning, we picked up the pieces.
Predictably, there wasn’t much to like on the red carpet and there was even less to remember. Luckily, the fashion disasters came fast and furious: Halle Berry showed her midriff, Alyssa Milano went to prom, and Jennifer Lopez really wanted you to think about her naked. More
So it’s year end wrap-up time and this time we need to be really frank: 2012 wasn’t exactly a banner year for red carpet dressing. More
If you’ve been paying much attention to the fashion press lately, you probably know all about oxblood. The dark, wine-ish shade of red has been dominating runways for a season or two now, at Gucci, YSL, Valentino, Alexander Wang, Alexander McQueen, Acne, Miu Miu and more (it’s also all over red carpets, especially as beauty). For those of you who can’t go out and drop a few grand on a trend-straddling McQueen frock coat, though, we’ve got a few more affordable options (and some aspirational pieces to oogle too). More
When we last saw Carly Rae Jepsen, the “Call Me Maybe” singer was dressed like a twelve-year-old high on White Out… More
She looks so… normal here. More
For as long as I can remember, I’ve been attracted to handbags that have all manner of hardware on them. More
Alexander McQueen‘s Fall 2012 campaign video has dropped and it’s kind of a drugged-out nightmare. The clip was directed by David Sims and stars Suvi Koponen‘s razor sharp cheekbones. More
Sometimes publicity stunts don’t totally suck! More
