For the first day of the Cannes Film Festival, Blake Lively opted for a giant braid with her scarlet Gucci Premiere gown. And it was glorious. More
Emma Stone has a fashion board on Pinterest, and if we all work together we are sure to find it. More
Inexpensive knockoffs have done Isabel Marant a favor, because now she’s finally ditching her own hideous, squishy-footed $800 clown shoes. More
Anything that gives me an excuse to use a good Gob Bluth GIF… More
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
It’s the Great Pumpkin, Karl Lagerfeld! More
Milan Fashion Week is drawing to a close–which means the next round of Spring 2014 collections are around the corner in Paris. Here’s what the industry–Anna Wintour, Anna Dello Russo, Carine Roitfeld, Emmanuelle Alt–wore, along with the front row’s fanciest–Cate Blanchett, Freida Pinto, Blake Lively, Amber Heard–and even a few supermodels (Kate Moss, Karolina Kurkova, Bianca Balti).

Man’s best friend will never go out of style. 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.

After what felt like forever without it, Mad Men is currently on TV for what will probably feel like way too short a time. In addition to providing plans for all of our Sunday nights, this means its primary players (but mainly the women) get to wear lots of pretty clothes about talk about themselves in magazines. In the latest issue of Net-a-Porter‘s interactive online fashion mag The Edit, criminal undersharer January Jones dons some truly gorgeous outfits and looks, well, gorgeous in them. The accompanying article is fairly similar content-wise to The New York Times‘ sexist hack job, only it takes a strong stance in favor of Ms. Jones’ right to privacy. Imagine that! But even if you are still mad at her for refusing to tell us everything about her interior life, perhaps you can content yourself with the fact that she seems committed to using her exterior to create some really striking images.

The popular fashion victim wore two different pairs of drop crotch leather pants, which begs the question: how many pairs of leather pants does one pop star really need? More
Hey, betches! Sofia Coppola‘s The Bling Ring premieres at Cannes today! The film, which stars Emma Watson as the Worst, is based on a true story about a group of shallow people who robbed rich and famous shallow people. Zeitgeisty!
Anyway, guess what that means? Horrible early/mid ’00s fashion is back! Did you miss whiskered jeans? Louis Vuitton Murakami bags? Purse dogs? Ever-present Frappuccinos? Unapologetic venality? Paris Hilton being marginally relevant?
Hopefully you didn’t. But let’s take a stroll down the worst kind of memory lane with our carefully considered Bling Ring-inspired shopping guide. More
Apparently people who can spend thousands of dollars on ostrich skin skirts and blue velvet smoking jackets have a pretty laissez-faire attitude about drug use! Huh. More
