Actress Eva Mendes launched a clothing line with the brand New York and Company today, and there’s good news and bad news. The bad news is that it’s nothing exciting. The good news is that that might mean you can actually wear it, as you don’t generally want to look “exciting” when you go to work. As much as I love, say, Nicki Minaj‘s very Nicki-ish line for Kmart, a spandex crop top with matching leggings is not exactly appropriate for most people to wear out of the house. So I’m not mad at these clothes for being regular. They’re pretty affordable, too, and a lot of them are cute in that “generically vintage inspired” way that flatters most body types. Hence, I give you: 10 cute and affordable items from Eva Mendes’ New York and Company line. More

Ryan Gosling just almost beat up a photographer for calling Eva Mendes “baby.” Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes have been dating since September – they even wear one another’s clothes! Wearing one another’s clothes is cute. Threatening to beat up strangers is kind of possessive and weird and frankly unnerving. More
The floral macramé-lace and tulle dress has so many interesting things going on–the delicate sleeves, the convenient pockets and the oddball neckline. Everything about this dress is making us excited for all the acid-trip prints we’re planning to wear this Spring.
However! The accessories really sink things here. More
The biggest red carpet event of the year–the 2012 Met Gala–happened last night to celebrate the 0pening of “Schiaparelli And Prada: Impossible Conversations.” Unsurprisingly, old school Prada muses (like Milla Jovovich and Angela Lindvall) came out of the woodwork. As for the fashion? Sparkly, sheer and extremely unflattering were the orders of the day.
…But! Ugly dresses were the least of their problems, because apparently every good makeup artist in New York was off for the night: lots of hair dye experimentations (we hardly recognized you, Jamie King and Jessica Stam), black lipstick (Lana Del Rey, Kate Bosworth, Camilla Belle), harsh brows (Kate Upton) and whatever happened to Mary-Kate Olsen. Look through the gallery and then we must discuss! More

Last night saw the 2011 Costume Institute Gala, the focus of which was the life and work of the late Alexander McQueen. In terms of fashion, the Gala is the red carpet event of the year. Thanks to McQueen’s influence, it was also pretty exciting. Here are the evening’s most regrettable outfits. More

Elie Saab is perhaps best known as a man who creates safe, winning choices for actresses to wear at red carpet events. This is not to say his dresses aren’t very pretty, it’s just to say that his Spring 2011 couture collection showed today and it is comprised of 41 floaty, flattering, feminine, red carpet-baiting looks. Since there’s never too much to say about columns with lace and flowers in classic silhouettes and swirling trains, let’s just imagine which actresses will show up in what.
Last week, I was thinking about suits: namely, when it works, it’s awesome, when it fails, it really fails. So today I’ve compiled some photos of other pieces that present real challenges: high-waisted denim, harem pants, midriff-bearing 90′s looks and more. I wouldn’t say that anything here can be categorized as “always terrible” (capes are often awesome and functional!) but I would say most of them qualify as “hard to pull off” (as the title suggests–). So, what works here and what doesn’t is up to you. Moreover, what’d I leave out? More
