While the Spring 2014 collections have been a little same-y, they’ve brought a lot of fun, eye-catching, wearable accessories. See, for example, our roundup of the many delightful shoes.
Now, of course, it’s time for handbags. Graphic black and white was the reason for the season at NYFW–a huge portion of the bags we saw played with contrasting stripes, geometric details and houndstooth. Let’s take a closer look… More
Fashion Week has but two days left! We’ve seen a lot of the expected for Spring 2014–bright citrus colors, florals, white looks, unfortunate crop tops and more unfortunate peplums–and a little of the refreshing (trapeze tops! swing coats!). But, thankfully, anchoring so many of Spring collections are a whole lot of wonderful, colorful, wearable shoes.
And when we say wearable, we (mostly) mean it–designers are all about chunky sandals, flatforms and sweet boots for Spring. Here’s a smattering of some lovely shoes from NYFW… More
While mortals like us were probably passed out in BBQ scraps and warm beer puddles this weekend, non-mortal style icon Kate Bosworth was getting married. The 30-year-old actress got engaged about a year ago, with the ceremony taking place this weekend in Montana. More
Oscar de la Renta supports Galliano, insists he is not retiring yet. More
Your e-cards are about to get a whole lot fancier. More
The Spring 2014 bridal collections have shown and the big surprise is… more nontraditional wedding dresses. We see this pretty regularly (dove gray, pale pink, mint green and the like), but it’s still always a surprise how polarizing it is. We’re of the opinion that no woman should feel required to wear a long white dress (or, uh, get married, for that matter) but the sight of a nonwhite gown sends others into irrational frenzy.
So, for those of you interested in/horrified by nonwhite gowns or other variously nontraditional wedding dresses, here are the latest from the Spring runways, featuring Vera Wang, Marchesa, Monique Lhuillier and more. More
Nicole Kidman was apparently in Austria this weekend, hanging out Vienna to attend a gala for Omega at Gartenpalais Liechtenstein. In a somewhat unexpected turn, she decided to go full-on Oscar ceremony in a floor-length Oscar de la Renta gown, covered … More
John Galliano is sober and ready to get back into fashion; blames his anti-Semitism on the “al al al al alcohol.” More
The 70th annual Golden Globe Awards took place last night and hopefully you enjoyed our knee jerk reactions to the (mostly boring) red carpet. Unfortunately, there weren’t a lot of stand out looks last night, so consider this best dressed list… graded on a curve.
Still, red carpet reliables like Julianne Moore and Anne Hathaway looked grand, while surprise turns from Olivia Munn, Lucy Liu and Stacy Keibler kept things interesting.
…Mildly, at least. More

Mitt Romney is on a desperate mission to save his flailing campaign after the apocalyptic fuck-up that was the Mother Jones leak. So, he did what any alien sent to earth to become a Brook Brothers model would do: he went on LIVE! With Kelly and Michael (?) to talk and brought along his expert humanizing device, wife Ann Romney.

Look, every day, at the office, I end up wearing the same leopard fur coat. On good days, I like to think it’s very Edie Sedgwick. On bad days it’s more Edie Beale. Lately, it’s been mostly Edie Beale. I blame it on being rainy and overly air-conditioned in here. That said, I’m about one week away from wearing some stockings as a turban.
I’m going to go out on a limb and say that this is one of the many, many reasons I could not be the Yahoo CEO. But I am relieved to know that Marissa Mayer is wearing the same cardigan absolutely everyplace. CEOs: they’re just like us. Maybe this will stop people from getting so excited when Kate Middleton wears the same dress twice in a year? No? No. Well, we can dream.
Do you have one item you wear all the time? Do you know a brand of stocking that would make a nice turban? Let’s share tips! More
“Dark and moody” go the unsurprising fall color trends at NYFW: covering the runways were muted shades of midnight, plum, and the reigning combination of black and blue. …But just when you thought it was all very bleak and Fall-appropriate… bright, fuck-off, electric reds came down the runway. Absolutely no one had his finger on this pulse better than Jason Wu, whose collection was almost exclusively shadowy shades of blue, wine and blinding red. Here are the colors to keep your eyes on for Fall 2012. More
