White Gowns Apparently Just For Basic B*tches Now: 13 Nontraditional Wedding Dresses From The Spring 2014 Bridal Shows

White Gowns Apparently Just For Basic B*tches Now: 13 Nontraditional Wedding Dresses From The Spring 2014 Bridal Shows

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 »

Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer Has An Office Cardigan, Too

Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer Has An Office Cardigan, Too

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 »

NYFW:The Major Fall Color Trends For 2012

“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 »
