Blake Lively, as an actress, hasn’t been seen around these parts lately–her last big movie, Green Lantern, came out in 2011 (and grossed about half its budget). Since then, Lively’s kept things pretty low-key (despite marrying Ryan Reynolds), hanging out in upstate New York, and continuing to not use a stylist.
In fact, in the past year she’s done little more than threaten to launch a “lifestyle brand” and corresponding newsletter, just like everyone’s other favorite lifestyle brand/newsletter, GOOP. And also give the occasional interview about fancy ovens. More
The Night of Stars Gala took place last night and we’ll get to the full red carpet momentarily, but for now: some very important news! Miley Cyrus, erstwhile child star, censorship martyr, lover of self and pop culture slayer, walked the red carpet among the many fancy people and… looked fancy herself! More
This weekend, the London Film Festival closed with a glittery red carpet in honor of Saving Mr Banks. The film focuses on Walt Disney‘s attempts to procure the rights to Mary Poppins as well as the childhood of Poppins author P.L. Travers–and it stars Tom Hanks (as Disney!) and Emma Thompson (as Travers). Their combined star power lured out some very shiny dresses and at least one pair of bizarre shoes. More
It’s the Great Pumpkin, Karl Lagerfeld! More
We saw the front rows in New York, we saw them in London and we saw them in Milan–but no fashion week seemed to attract more famous people than Paris. As Fashion Month draws to a close, the celebrities descended on the City of Light to take in Chanel, Miu Miu, Louis Vuitton, Valentino and at least one very splashy party for the new Carine Roitfeld movie.
Here’s what they wore, featuring Katy Perry, Hailee Steinfeld, Kim Kardashian, Kim Kardashian’s Breasts, Kate Upton, Miranda Kerr and many more. More
Hilton paired her light bondage costume with 300 pounds of blonde hair extensions, Chanel finger armor and a logo bracelet, just to make sure no one forgot that she’s only famous for being rich. 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
Apparently a woman with a fancy designer handbag is perceived as someone with a “more devoted partner,” and therefore other women are less likely to try and steal him (and his wallet), because all women do is compete for men and beat each other mercilessly with $2000 purses in Swarovski-studded Thunderdomes.

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
When a story on the fact that you’ve dressed somewhat well is an actual story, you know you should really toss those denim/sweatshirt hybrid pants already. More
Yesterday saw the Chanel Haute Couture show at the Grand Palais–drawing the expected crowd of editors/fashion people, attractive young entertainers, nebulously relevant It Girls, and very rich people with nothing better to do.
But! It also attracted some impressively bad outfits! More
Normal people can get away with not paying interns; Lagerfeld can get the interns to pay him. More
We’d like to point out that, accessories included, this outfit cost roughly $5-6000. More
The Bling Ring premiered in LA last night with a splashy Louis Vuitton (of course) and Vanity Fair-hosted red carpet.
The stars wore an impressively interesting assortment of looks–what else would we expect from rising style stars like Emma Watson, not to mention established fashion icons like Chloe Sevigny, Gwen Stefani and Sofia Coppola? Check out all the looks below.
And yes, Paris Hilton was there. What else is she doing these days? More
