Red Carpet Rundown: The Complete 2013 Met Gala Red Carpet, Chaos To Couture

Red Carpet Rundown: The Complete 2013 Met Gala Red Carpet, Chaos To Couture

It’s time, everyone. The 2013 Met Gala–or, the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala, if you’re nastyis upon us. While we have really, really mixed feelings about this year’s themePunk: Chaos to Couture–and we know most of the attendees are nervous about committing (despite our helpful styling suggestions!) this is still the biggest red carpet event of the year. Expect one or two unforgettable looks, lots of playing it safe, some real style, some real glamour and, hopefully, a whole lot of beautiful disasters.

So, per usual, we’ll be updating live throughout the red carpet. Come back and refresh often–expect new looks here every few minutes!

Let’s do this. More »

Gallery: Full Sleeves Are In Bloom Again

Gallery: Full Sleeves Are In Bloom Again

You’ve probably noticed a proliferation of yeti arms in recent seasons… and, if the Fall 2012 runways are to be believed, they show no signs of slowing. However, one thing we noticed at the NYFW shows was the enormous variety of sleeves. Obviously, they’re going to be a staple for Fall (it’s chilly, after all) but they won’t be your garden variety arm covering: designers like Thakoon, Peter Som, and Rodarte showed unexpected proportions… while known minimalists like Nariso Rodriguez played around with surprising volume.

NYFW:The Major Fall Color Trends For 2012

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 »

Taylor Swift’s Full Vogue Spread Is Here

Taylor Swift's Full Vogue Spread Is Here

In an astonishing turn of events, news leaked this week that a thin, white, conventionally attractive blonde girl will be featured on the cover of American Vogue. That girl is “country cutie” (our preferred epithet) Taylor Swift and that issue will run in February. Here’s the full spread and–not being an asshole for once, guys!!–we like the throwback feel of the cover.

…The editorial, however? Not so much. Looks an old Fashion Rocks insert and floppy hats are still being used to signify “edgy bohemian glamor.” Swift was shot by Mario Testino wearing some monumentally ugly clothes (but also pretty Rodarte Van Gogh prints!). Take a look. More »

Gallery: Elle Fanning Models Rodarte's Spring Collection For A Magazine

A Magazine is a bi-annual publication that invites a a different designer to “curate” each issue. For the current “curated by Rodarte” issue of said magazine, the Mulleavy sisters decided to publish a look book of 13-year-old fashion plate Elle Fanning modeling their spring couture collection. Isn’t that kind of uncomfortably advertorial in nature? Don’t you wish you could afford these clothes? And why doesn’t Elle Fanning ever crack a smile? Is it because she doesn’t have all her grown-up teeth yet? Let’s ponder these questions as we take a look. More »
