I’ve been obsessed with wearing the color black for as long as I can remember. For me, wearing head-to-toe black has nothing to do with my personality or outlook on life, nor is it an attempt to convey any less-than-friendly subliminal messages to other people. Black clothing, in my opinion, is freedom. More

No really, this bride tied a month-old infant to her train and dragged it down the aisle after her, and the pictures are insane. More
No seriously. Pick your jaw up. More
Jaimie Alexander is best known for her role on Kyle XY and–as of now–wearing this dress to the Thor premiere. More
Wow, last night’s Emmys ceremony was a tricky red carpet to judge. By which we mean, looks for the most part were your typical awards show turf (big, bold and boring) but the rest of them were interesting in all the wrong ways (weird bodices, strange appliquĂ©s, super exaggerated flounces) (but we’ll get to that)–leaving us with a somewhat motley crew of occasionally very beautiful winners, some of which are a little odd. Let’s take a look. More
Congratulations are in order for social media savvy swimsuit model Chrissy Teigen–she wed longtime boyfriend John Legend this weekend in Lake Como, Italy, in front of a star-studded group of guests includingÂ Kanye West, Quincy Jones, Stevie Wonder and Brooklyn Decker. Wonder even took to the piano at one point. Teigen, 27, wore a massive, strapless ivory Vera Wang gown for the actual ceremony–but changed into another look by the designer for the reception. More
Here at The Gloss, we tend to shy away from the too-common bullying language of many fashion publications–5 Designer Items You Need Right Now! 5 Bags Everyone Will Have!, etc–because it’s unrealistic and obnoxious (no one needs a designer anything, for one).
However, for those of you who like following fashion but feel no obligation to spend a month’s rent on a damn handbag, one very easy way to translate the runway to your regular old wardrobe is with color.Â By incorporating the season’s biggest shades–whether through recycling stuff you already have or buying something new–you’ll achieve roughly the same effect as wearing trendy, eye-catching (and super expensive) runway pieces. Next Spring, these are the colors you’ll be seeing. More
Looks from Anna Wintour, Kanye West, Christina Hendricks, Rashida Jones editors, actresses and a slew of models.Â Hereâ€™s what the rich, famous and occasionally fashionable wore to yesterdayâ€™s showsâ€¦ More
A long time ago, this would have passed for “pretty racy.” In 2013, however, a sheer plunge to the navel is kind of standard. If you can’t see vagina, it’s barely news. More
Would you be willing to pay to try on shoes? More
The CFDA Awards went down last night and the big winners wereÂ Proenza SchoulerÂ (womenswear designer of the year),Â Phillip LimÂ (accessories designer of the year) and Suno (Swarovski Award for Emerging Talent in Womenswear). Oh, and everyone who’s famous for their red carpet presence showed up too–Jessica Chastain, Rooney Mara, Kerry Washington and a whole slew of models.
Here’s what the very stylish and the very victimized wore to the so-called Oscars of fashion.
Remember when we (very facetiously) declared that white wedding gowns were for basic bitches this year? That instead, the season’s fashion forward brides would be wearing baby pinks, pastel blues, dove grays and… other stuff?
Well, it turns outÂ Shenae Grimes, actress, is no basic bitch, either. No basic bitch at all! More
Last night, famous fancy people stepped out to support the 2013 Delete Blood Cancer Gala, which happened to be honoring one of their brethren, Vera Wang. The event drew all kinds of style-obsessed types, from Katy Perry to Coco Rocha. … 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
