We have a soft spot for the 90s goth vampire teen look, but Leann Rimes illustrates every way it can go wrong. More
Cate Blanchett is a classy lady who pretty much always looks awesome on the red carpet. Imagine my surprise, then, when I opened the Daily Mail‘s website this morning and saw the headline “CATE BLANCHETT TAKES RARE FASHION MISSTEP.” Apparently, she’d really cocked up her look for the Parisian premiere of her new film Blue Jasmine (directed by Woody Allen).

It’s good to be a goth in Manchester, England. In addition to living in a climate that perfectly suits their love of all things dreary, Manchester’s gothic citizens are now protected from hate crimes by the same laws that protect people who are attacked based on race, religion, disability, sexual orientation or transgender identity.

This past weekend, I threw myself a goth mitzvah for my 28th birthday. There were friends, fun, pizza, cake, post punk, ’90s goth kid music, booty rap, laser lights, space helmets, and a good bit of debauchery. It was my friend Dana’s birthday too, and while she didn’t need a goth mitzvah as much as I did, she was happy to participate. More
As much as I like to make fun of Audrey from Girls for being a huge fashion victim with her camo-print rompers and culturally insensitive headbands, I believe there’s a right way to wear this un-killable trend. Why, I’ve even been known to rock a floral headband myself. I’m also a fan of that witchy, lacey, Steve Nicks look, which is good, because it doesn’t seem to be going anywhere. Considering these two facts, then, it’s no surprise I approve of this ethereal photo spread in the March issue of Vogue Russia, which does the late winter/early spring nature sprite thing quite well. On a related note, my birthday is in March, so I am going to pretend they made this editorial just for me. More

Medea mom is featured prominently in the spring/summer issue of Vs Magazine, and she looks pretty different from how we’re used to seeing her. Apparently, someone in the art department decided it was a good idea to do the ol’ “playing against type” trick on her with a bunch of black eyeliner and what looks like some temporary black hair dye. And you know what? It totally was. Maybe it’s just my gothic sensibilities showing through, but I tend to think a little darkness and gloom make almost any conventionally attractive blonde about twenty times hotter. It does look like she’s in the process of dyeing her hair in some of the pictures, though. More
It has recently come to my attention that I love capes. It might be my love of retro fashions, my previously discussed latent Gothic tendencies, or the fact that it’s currently en vogue to dress like you know how to put spells on people, but I think the right cape can look pretty cool on anyone willing to take a small risk. Plus, it’s one of those rare trends that’s also functional…assuming your cape has arm holes, anyway. But which cape should you buy, and what should you wear it with? As easy as it would be to just say “all of them” and “everything,” here are 11 concrete suggestions to get the swooshy cape party started. More

On a recent trip to Finland in search of purer, colder, more folklore-rich Chanel than the boring old Chanel you can buy in New York, Lady Gaga encountered a shop girl who made the unfortunate mistake of looking her in the eye. So untutored was she in the ways of American celebrity that she not only gazed into the Queen of pop’s forbidden face, but failed to smear her own with mud and soot so as not to risk appearing more beautiful than the Queen. The Queen was silent for a long time, then whirled around and exited the shop, only to return under cover of night to put a curse on the impudent Chanel store. Because everyone involved but the Queen is now dead, this story lives only in quiet whispers and the photos of her powerful ogre friend Terry. More
Sartorial genius and Anna Wintour pal Nicki Minaj dropped a video for her new single “I Am Your Leader” today, and it’s no less eye popping than we’ve come to expect from her, with the added bonus that it’s actually a good song. (Please stick to rapping, Nicki!) I love the colorful Tim Burton-esque backdrop, and it goes along perfectly with the whole “cute/kooky/scary” image she’s built for herself. She doesn’t wear that many different outfits in it, relatively speaking, but the ones she does wear are pretty memorable. Here are screen caps of all of them, plus some bonus ones of guests Rick Ross and Cam’ron. More
