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 »

Fashion Disaster Of The Week: Vote For Sarah Jessica Parker, Blake Lively, Kirsten Dunst & More

Very stiff competition in the Fashion Disasters category this week. What with the recent Chanel-sponsored event at the MoMA the other day, we saw all kinds of bad decisions. Just before that, we saw another fancy party at a museum, with mostly mixed looks. But! There’s also a wild card in play this week. Let’s check out the competition, shall we? More »

Let’s Take A Moment To Appreciate Rodarte’s Amazing Vincent Van Gogh Dresses

Let's Take A Moment To Appreciate Rodarte's Amazing Vincent Van Gogh Dresses

NYFW still has some time left but it’s safe to say that one of the week’s most beloved shows belonged to Rodarte: though it touched on a few of the major trends for Spring 2012–peplums, cutouts–the collection was startlingly unique in a season of bold primary colors and clean monochrome. The Mulleavy sisters were inspired by the masterpieces of Vincent van Gogh and sent hatchmarks, sunflowers and swirling sky prints down the runway. More »

Friday Style Icon: The Inimitable Shala Monroque

Friday Style Icon: The Inimitable Shala Monroque

There’s a whole slew of terribly stylish women we may have never discovered if it wasn’t for the advent of street style blogs. While Elle‘s Kate Lanphear is beloved for her structured rock’n roll aesthetic and Vogue Nippon’s Anna Dello Russo is known for wearing head-to-toe couture hallucinations, former Pop editor-at-large and fellow street style (/fellow blogger) darling Shala Monroque has a downright uncanny way with color. Monroque fearlessly mixes head-turning prints, bright statement necklaces, and ladylike silhouettes for a fresh, modern look that’s completely her own. She also has killer legs. Here’s a few of her best looks.

Designers Like Karl Lagerfeld & Donatella Versace Pose With Their Musical Muses

Designers Like Karl Lagerfeld & Donatella Versace Pose With Their Musical Muses

W Magazine did a story on the relationship between designers and their musical muses. With some, the connection is obvious: Florence Welch was recently named the face of Gucci so she’s a natural fit to inspire Gucci creative director Frida Giannini. With others, it’s more unclear (what about flower child Esperanza Spalding inspires minimalist Francisco Costa?*). Check out the pairings in the gallery. Also: poor Baptise Giabiconi!! More »
