NYFW: Guess Which Horrible Trend Will Not F*cking Die

NYFW: Guess Which Horrible Trend Will Not F*cking Die

We have bitched and moaned about peplums for nearly as long as we’ve been doing red carpet coverage–they bother us for a number of reasons, namely that they tend to be awkward, bulky and unflattering on women in the actual corporeal world (as opposed to the fantastical creatures forged at fashion week and paraded down the runway) and because they look so pointless. Just a bunch of unnecessary fabric, engulfing the wearer, serving no visual purpose. No wonder Kim Kardashian loves them.

…But looks like we better start loving them too, because if the current NYFW runways are any indication, they’re not going away anytime soon. Here’s what to expect from the trend next Spring. More »

NYFW Rundown: Celebs Wear Their Front Row Finest For The First Half Of Fashion Week

NYFW Rundown: Celebs Wear Their Front Row Finest For The First Half Of Fashion Week

Celebrities love fashion week. Not just because they get wined and dined, sit front row, skip all the lines and leave loaded down with freebies–but because they get press, for the simple act of wearing clothes.

Also, if this point hasn’t been made everywhere it should be: the woman’s makeup is always, always, always on point. Please enjoy the following gallery of amazing red carpet looks from Diane Kruger, today’s Friday Style Icon. More »

Friday Style Icon: Uma Thurman As Mia Wallace In Pulp Fiction

Friday Style Icon: Uma Thurman As Mia Wallace In Pulp Fiction

Mrs. Mia Wallace. Played by Uma Thurman, Mia is the wife of fearsome gangster Marsellus Wallace and one of the most iconic characters in the pretty consistently iconic 1994 classic, Pulp Fiction. The failed former actress (Fox Force Five) who loves cheeseburgers, pricey milkshakes and thought experiments (everyone, she claims in a cut scene, can be reduced to a Beatles man or an Elvis man) in kitschy settings gets Vincent Vega in a lot of trouble when she accidentally overdoses in his care. She also loves Urge Overkill and air guitar. She can twist really well, too. Here’s our salute to the fashion minimalism of Mia Wallace. More »
