My inner ska kid is crying. More
In Pick Of The Week, I highlight a nifty fashion and/or beauty item that I’ve discovered in my travels. More
I mean “may anyone, ever” but it felt awkward to type, right?
Every time I see a Lisa Perry dress, which is inevitably inspired by some well known artist, I have an immediate impulse to say “Jeff KOONS, lady? I fucking love Jeff Koons! I will give you all the money in the world for this dress! Please excuse me while I hold up 7 banks!” I say that regardless of whether or not the artist inspiring the dress is Jeff Koons. I really just want to hold up some banks. 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
Yesterday, we brought you images from H&M and Versace‘s menswear collection, which was a whole lot more Zoolander than we anticipated. Perhaps in an act of cosmic balancing, the retailer has also released the Fall 2011 campaign for its Conscious collection and it’s really, really lovely. The campaign stars Frida Gustavsson and Caroline Brasch Nielsen voguing like ’90s supermodels in a bunch of beautiful dark floral prints and chic basics. Good look picking a favorite shoe, though.

Fashion month has happened and we’re still picking up the pieces from the Spring 2012 shows. Coming up on TheGloss, we have some breathlessly thorough beauty guides for Fall (you know, the actual season we’re in) but for the moment, let’s just review some of those pretty, pretty Spring dresses. Here’s our top 25 frocks of fashion month, from Alexander McQueen to Rodarte to Gareth Pugh, with all the crazy prints and textures in between. More
Want to look like Edie Sedgwick in leopard print coat? Sure you do. Andy Warhol will take all kinds of movies of you, and you’ll live in the Chelsea Hotel, and you’ll get addicted to heroin and… alright, well, you know, she still looked great in an animal print.
You say “tomato”, I say “oh, Dolce and Gabbana did that as a print at their 2012 Spring show.” You say “why?” I say, “because florals are boring, I guess?” You say “but doesn’t that seem kind of gimmicky, too? I mean, I think it’s funny to a fashion crowd, but a lot of people are just going to be like ‘ why does that girl have tomatoes all over her dress?” And I say “to-mah-to.” More
For Spring 2012, Milly was all about bright, bold patterns mixed with brighter… bolder… patterns. Saturated colors, exaggerated prints, and statement-making pairings hit yestrday’s runway and editors Jennifer Wright and Ashley Cardiff try to make sense of it but end up making tentative plans for a Spanish American war-themed version of Medieval Times.

Cynthia Rowley sent models down a mirrored runway for her Spring 2012 show that combined sportwear with allusions to Christopher Kane and distorted prints with pretty, ladylike silhouettes. More
I’ll probably never be cool enough to wear a dress like this, but a girl can dream: behold the awesome, abstract shoreline print that came down the runway at Rachel Comey’s great show. The cut (especially the neckline) of the dress is already such a strong argument for minimalism, but throwing on that insanely great print knocks it out of the park. More
Richard Chai’s show yesterday was full of prints, open shoulders and loafers. Jennifer goes on the offensive, while Ashley wasn’t a fan of the styling but liked a lot of individual pieces. More
