It’s Love/Hate week at TheGloss, in which we explore all the ways Valentine’s Day makes us feel… wonderful or the opposite of that. Our sponsor for the week is the upcoming romantic drama The Vow, starring Rachel McAdams as a woman who loses all memory of the past five years and Channing Tatum as the husband who needs to remind her. And, because this is a fashion site, we thought we’d take a little trip down memory lane for some of McAdams’ very best moments on the red carpet. More
Isaac Mizrahi has judging duties on Project Runway‘s all-star season (alongside Marchesa‘s Georgina Chapman), but if you disagree with any of his calls: take it up with God. More
Let us be straight with you: no one looked great at last night’s People’s Choice Awards. There were two choices: the horribly dressed (we discuss them here) and then there was a cadre of mostly boring, middle-of-the-road, unremarkable looks from the usual suspects. The latter category is here. See many routine, obvious dresses on ladies like Miley Cyrus, Lea Michelle, Kristen Bell, Alyson Hannigan and more. More
2011 saw its fair share of over-exposed prints (stripes!), It Dresses (Dolce & Gabbana‘s stars, Gucci‘s swirling disco gowns, looks from Prada‘s Spring and Fall collections), and poor decision making (feather earrings, mullet dresses). Here, we’ve rounded up the biggest, most inescapable fashion trends of the year, for your reminiscing pleasure. More
Sherlock Holmes premiered in LA last night and its female leads–Rachel McAdams and Noomi Rapace (of Sweden’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) walked the red carpet in extremely similar dresses. Like, their publicists-probably-had-a-panic-attack similar. More
We’ve been thinking about how to pull off head-to-toe white lately because 1) it’s currently all over the red carpet and 2) it’s always a popular (but dangerous!) choice at holiday parties. When done well, one looks like a radiant snow angel. When botched? A lost bride. Here’s a bunch of famous ladies–Angelina Jolie, Cate Blanchett, Sarah Jessica Parker, Jessica Alba, Tilda Swinton–who’ve had great success with white looks in the past month or so.
We’re currently in Fall 2011, Spring 2012 just showed and it’s Fall 2012 time for Bridal. Does that make sense? No? Too bad. Anyway, Fall 2012 bridal had some surprises: though there’s always a few looks with a high hemline, a few weird silhouettes and techno fabrics, this season there were also more than a few jet black wedding dresses. …That being said, there was a whole lot of lace and mermaid gowns and cap sleeves, too. Here’s our picks for the best of them, from heavyweights like Vera Wang, Monique Lhuillier, Oscar de la Renta, Carolina Herrera and more. More
Sometimes things just work out for impossibly fit, tall blondes like Molly Sims. The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit evergreen and CoverGirl face tied the knot with movie producer Scott Stuber. The ceremony took place over the weekend in Napa Valley and Fergie was there. Sims wore a traditional lacy white fishtail by (wait for it) Marchesa, which we all found very lovely. The jewels were by Lorraine Schwartz and the groom wore Tom Ford. Here are some shots. More

We love Diane Kruger. Maybe it’s because the Chanel runway is effectively her closet? Or that the former model is flawless looking? Regardless, Kruger allegedly doesn’t use a stylist and however she shows up–whether she’s working minimalism, intricate beading or retro silhouettes–she always looks memorable. 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
I should really title this “some of Tilda Swinton’s Greatest Red Carpet Looks” because there’s only 15 slides here and in my opinion few women come anywhere near her fashion prowess. While most actresses rely heavily on romantic, pretty dresses by Marchesa or Elie Saab, Swinton’s fallbacks are Haider Ackermann, Jil Sander and Lanvin. She may get blasted by idiotic red carpet correspondents (who themselves dress like overgrown princesses suffocating under 4 lbs. of makeup), but it doesn’t matter at all: the only thing Swinton has more of than style is… talent. Let’s spend a few minutes appreciating this original. More
Remember how we mentioned the design duo behind Marchesa had collaborated with Playboy on a modern take of the ionic bunny costume? Here it is in the flesh, featuring “intricately embellished [beading], embroidered lace and a chic peplum.” Get another look of the costume and read what Georgina Chapman had to say about the collaboration after the jump.

With the impending wedding of William and Kate, we all can’t help but look back and think of the other royal couple that defined a generation, Charles and Diana. More
Marchesa’s Georgina Chapman and Karen Craig have long been known for their delicate, feminine, frothy creations that blossom on every red carpet from Hollywood to London. I half suspect that when a movie opens big, its lead actress receives a lifetime supply of Marchesa dresses or something because they account for roughly 30% of dresses I see on famous women. Anyway, now the ladies of Marchesa are taking on the iconic Playboy Bunny design: More
