Amal Chose George…and Oscar

By  September 30, 2014

ClooneyAlamuddinPeopleIt’s confirmed: the bride wore Oscar! People Magazine’s newest issue (available Wednesday) features photos from George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin’s Venetian wedding—yes, including ample views of her gown. In addition to her pre-wedding outfits, by Dolce & Gabbana, Alexander McQueen and Giambattista Valli couture, Alamuddin’s wedding look is what bridal dreams are made of.

The stunning bride wore a custom French lace wedding gown by Oscar de la Renta, featuring an off-the-shoulder neckline and a full circular train. The traditional look matches the bride’s everyday style, which we’ve kind of been fixated on ever since she hopped into Clooney’s spotlight. Needless to say, on this day, Alamuddin outshined her new hubby, though he looked dapper in a classic Giorgio Armani tux. To top off her wedding look, Alamuddin wore natural pearl earrings with square-cut diamond accents made by Lebanese jeweler Chatila and, of course, a brand new platinum wedding band.

Style Snaps: September 29, 2014

BeyonceGlobalCitizensEvery day, we bring you celebrity sightings and stylings as seen everywhere from the streets to the red carpet. Whether they’re dolled up or dressed down, we can’t resist the need to know who wore what.

Now, that’s what we call a hair-flip. Attendees at The Global Citizen Festival were in for a surprise when Jay-Z “unexpectedly” invited his wife on stage to perform with him. Beyoncé and Jay performed “Holy Grail” and “Forever Young” to round out the six-hour long concert. Though there may or may not have been a wardrobe malfunction involved (let’s just say the jumping and bouncing Bey did resulted in several close calls…), their performance was as epic as you’d expect.

Style Scoop: Hollywood’s Ultimate Bachelor is Married, Reese Witherspoon Answers 73 Questions, Barbie’s $200K Comeback

By  September 29, 2014


In case you missed it, longtime bachelor George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin tied the knot over the weekend in Venice. A number of notables including Bono, Bill Murray, Cindy Crawford, Matt Damon and Anna Wintour attended as guests. The extravagant ceremony required that guests take a flotilla of water taxis across the canal for the ceremony. Word on the street is that Alamuddin wore Oscar de la Renta, though no photos are available just yet. [Glam Chic]

October cover girl Reese Witherspoon gets the Vogue treatment in the mag’s most recent episode of its 73 Questions series. In it, she shares her rapper name, her dream TV show cameo and the cutest thing on earth as she gives a tour of her vast, airy Los Angeles home. Is it just us, or does she still sound like Elle Woods? [Vogue]

Barbie is making a comeback this fall—one worth $200K, that is. The Karl Lagerfeld Barbie hit Net-a-porter on Monday and is already sold out. The 999 units that the e-tailer had to sell went for $200, but there are some available now on eBay…for up to $3,500. [Fashionista]

Just when you thought the H&M collaboration hype was settling down, the retailer announced its designer counterpart for next season. Following up Alexander Wang’s collection for the brand is Eddy Anemian. The 24-year-old designer was chosen as the winner of H&M’s design award. He won €50,000 and the opportunity to show his designs in the context of a collaboration with H&M, which will hit stores later this fall.  [Refinery 29]

Julia Restoin Roitfeld is taking to an unfamiliar medium: film. The blogger, photographer and model directed the latest short film in Stuart Weitzman’s ongoing series. This installment features Poppy Delevingne and Dylan Penn (daughter of Sean Penn and Robin Wright) and takes place in the Hamptons. It focuses on three pairs of boots from the fall line and incorporates a sixties vibe, but for Roitfeld, it was about timelessness: she said, ”I wanted it to feel timeless, like it could be any time—the Ninties, the Sixties or today.” [Women’s Wear Daily]

Style Scoop: Tom Ford Moves to Tinseltown, Louis Vuitton Gets Editorial, and Target Tries Wool

By  September 26, 2014


Tom Ford has called London Fashion Week home since 2011, but it looks like the designer’s September 15 showing of his Spring 2015 collection was also his last in the UK. Ford’s taking his runway show some 5,000 miles away to Los Angeles come February, announcing today that his Fall 2015 line will be shown in Southern California on the first day of London Fashion Week. But how will guests make his show, and the ones being put on in the traditional venues across the pond, you ask? No idea–we’ll just have to wait and see how Ford’s big move pans out. [Fashionista]

From purses to publications–that’s the direction Louis Vuitton is going in. The French luxury leather line will distribute a biannual in-house magazine called The Book to select recipients starting this month. The 126-page glossy, which features stunning imagery, exclusive interviews, and fascinating features surrounding the brand, features Yorgo Tloupas as its art director, LV’s artistic director, Nicolas Ghesquière as the template creator, and Sylvia Jorif, a contributor to French Elle, as editor. [WWD]

Target’s getting cozy this holiday season with a Faribault Woolen Mills partnership. The mass retailer and Minnesota-based company will launch their limited-edition collection of 100 percent wool scarves, throws, handbags, and tech accessories on November 2. [Glam Inbox]

Carven’s creative director Guillaume Henry may be leaving the line he brought back to life and heading to Nina Ricci. Having relaunched the former couture house five years ago, Henry would be a skilled successor for Ricci’s Peter Copping, who is rumored to be going to Oscar de la Renta. But for now, it’s all speculation…merely whispers amidst the style scene. Only time will tell who will be going where, and what it’ll mean for these luxury brands. [Vogue.co.uk]

In another switch type story circulating the fashion industry, Valérie Toranian has left her position as editorial director of French Elle. The change in editorial leadership comes as a result of the major restructuring currently underway at the French media group, Lagardère. Francoise-Marie Santucci, the former editor in chief at Next magazine, assumed Toranian’s role this week. [WWD]

Forever 21 is bringing music to our wardrobe with the help of Bravado, Universal Music Group’s leading global music merchandising company. The two labels launched The Beatles x Forever 21, a mini collection of men and women’s tees featuring The Beatles logo, images, and other trademarks of the legendary rock group. The ten piece line is available today! [Glam Inbox]

Side note – when’s she due?

Editor’s Pick: Lauren Ralph Lauren Mini Newbury Satchel

By  September 26, 2014

Discover your next obsession with our Editor’s Pick series, must-have products for your home, wardrobe, makeup bag, and office curated by Glam editors.

LaurenRalphLaurenI love a good monogram. In fact, I’ve worn one around my neck day in and day out for seven years and have several other treasures emblazoned with my initials. Maybe it’s the way the letters swirl into one another in romantic swoops, or just the fact that it identifies me in some way. Regardless, anything that has a spot for a little bit of “LAK” action catches my eye. It lends a classic touch, which brings me to the brand with which I not only share an appreciation for monogram, but also a name: Ralph Lauren.

So, imagine my excitement when I came across the monogram-able Lauren Ralph Lauren Mini Newbury satchel. The red bag caught my eye (because, naturally, it’s the perfect complement to my otherwise black-and-white wardrobe), and I couldn’t wait to make this classic a part of my bag rotation. Worn as a top handle or crossbody, this mini satchel is more versatile than it looks and will hold all of my necessities. A structured bag is something I’ve been after for a while now—and this little Lauren definitely fits the bill. I definitely didn’t resist the urge to have it monogrammed (gold, of course, to match the hardware), so consider this handbag territory marked. –Lauren Kaplan

Style Scoop: Goop Meets Mackage, Sachin & Babi Launches E-Commerce, Kim Plays Hostess at PFW, and Milly Heads to Kohl's

By  September 25, 2014


Goop is on a collaboration roll. Immediately following the partnership with DVF, Gwenyth Paltrow‘s site has partnered with Mackage for a capsule collection of winter coats, leather pants, and swoon-worthy bags. Adorably, there are children’s sizes too so you can match with your mini-mes. [Glam Inbox]

Sachin & Babi is making an e-commerce push. On Thursday morning, the brand launched a new website in conjunction with a new blog and shoppable video. With a following of stylish stars including Jenna Dewan Tatum, Julie Bowen, Ireland Baldwin and more, we’re sure we’re not the only ones coveting most of the pieces featured in the video. Certainly, the brand’s exciting launch marks an equally exciting time for our closets. [Sachin & Babi]

Carolina Herrera president Caroline Brown is stepping down. After four successful years with the brand, Brown will leave her position at the end of the year, but with fashion still in her future. Rumor has it that she will be taking on the role of CEO at Donna Karan. [Vogue.co.uk]

After her front row appearance at Balenciaga with husband Kanye West and daughter North in tow, Kim Kardashian played hostess to a presentation party for Russian designer Natalia Alaverdian’s label A.W.A.K.E.  The event, co-hosted by Miroslava Duma, Caroline de Maigret, and Melvin Chua, was held at the decadent Peninsula Hotel in Paris and featured an A-list guest list including Theophilus London, Mario Testino, Kris and Kendall Jenner, and Anna dello Russo. Now that’s a party we wish we could have been a fly on the wall for. [WWD]

We can now add ready-to-wear clothing designer to Kelly Osbourne‘s ever growing resume. The lavender-locked Brit’s line, Stories…by Kelly Osbourne, launches today. The plethora of pieces, which includes unique patterns, shape-wear paneling, and feminine silhouettes, debuts exclusively on HSN. [Glam Inbox]

In Marie Claire’s October issue, audiences are sure to fall in love with actress Charlize Theron even more upon reading her witty, thoughtful, powerful, and humble responses to the magazine’s “20 Questions” editorial. One of our favorites? Upon asking what every woman should try at least once in her life, Theron replies, “Doing the complete opposite of what you’re told.” [Marie Claire]

Robert Clergerie is turning his sights on skates. The French luxury shoe designer has teamed up Heritage Paris to create an ultra exclusive roller skate-to-sneaker for men and women. How exclusive, you ask? Distribution is set for only five skates per store and one store per country. [WWD]

Add another awesome collaboration to your must-shop list, because Milly by Michelle Smith is headed to Kohl’s for spring 2015. Inspired by her recent trip to Italy, the designer says to expect influence from ”Capri’s technicolor vistas, dynamic Mediterranean culture and signature Caprese style of effortlessly chic dressing,” amidst her DesigNation collection.

The Full Alexander Wang for H&M Campaign

By  September 25, 2014

alexander wang hm campaign

Alexander Wang afforded us a first look at his collaboration with H&M thanks to a well placed outfit on Rihanna during New York Fashion Week. Now the fashion fashion retailer and designer have officially released the campaign images, starring models Joan Smalls, Raquel Zimmermann, Isabeli Fontana and Natasha Poly alongside soccer player Andy Carroll and kickboxer Rivaldino dos Santos. Mikael Jansson photographed the group with Wang’s direction. “We wanted to take certain elements of each sport and portray the ultimate warrior,” he said. “The girls had to feel big and heroic, and Mikael used sunlight glares to heighten that effect against a stark white backdrop.”

The collection launches in stores on November 6. Will you be buying it?

Party Report: The Limited Goes Gladiator with ‘Scandal’ Collection

By  September 24, 2014

THE PARTY: The Limited Collection Inspired by Scandal Launch Party

THE PLACE: IAC Building, New York City

THE DEETS: When Scandal returns to ABC tomorrow night, gladiators will be able to look the part. After celebrating its third season last year at Saks Fifth Avenue, Emmy-nominated actress Kerry Washington and Scandal costume designer Lyn Paolo welcomed the fourth, in style, with a collection at The Limited.

Monday night, a fall 2014 capsule with sleek woven capes, drape collar coats, power trousers, and tailored suits was unveiled from the line—it read more like a full wardrobe than a one-off collaboration, much to our delight. “Olivia Pope is a modern day powerful woman,” Washington shared. “She is too busy to follow trends and looks for key pieces to incorporate into her wardrobe—look at her amazing outerwear collection. She is always on the move, so it’s important to have a statement coat that carries across seasons.” Much like the Max Mara one that Pope donned throughout season three (which helped conceal Washington’s pregnancy), but for the woman who doesn’t quite have Pope’s budget.

While Washington posed on the red carpet with Paolo and The Limited senior VP of design Elliot StaplesDJ Reach got into the groove with hits from UsherAaliyah, and Trey Songz. Socialite Bevy Smith and award-winning stylist DiAndre Tristan made air-kissed rounds, with Tristan likely scoping pieces for one of his top clients, Good Morning America anchor Robin Roberts. If Washington’s description of the wares is any lead, we’re sure to see Roberts, and other “gladiators” dressing the part, soon.

“The collection is a nod to our devoted fans,” Washington added. “To fans of fashion and to women everywhere who are inspired to boldly pursue their passions and look good while doing it.” Sounds like us Glam girls!
