Holiday Heels 101: Party Pumps to Suit Your Style

By  November 26, 2014

Glam_Article_Off_Broadway_HolidayHeels_SliceWe’re all about pumps with personality right now—heels with that extra special oomph that allows them to call the style shots this holiday season. And when you have a pair of heels with something to say, it’s only appropriate to arrange your ensemble around them. When you fashion your outfit with your shoes as the reference point, the key to style success is sticking to the same aesthetic from head to toe. 

For the stylista who wants to stand out at the holiday bash, a pair of badass booties will take her fashion to a fierce new level. Touch of Nina’s edgy faux-suede Farrah booties are enhanced with a festive row of radiant rhinestones, a trendy peep toe, and a killer heel that demands attention. Keep the offbeat party mojo strong with a bold jumpsuit and statement-making accessories.

If your party style flirts with femininity instead, a pair of classic satin sandals is more your speed. Nina Fineen heels are detailed with a touch of glitter and a beautiful bow, with slender traps around the ankle to elongate the legs. A short dress will play with proportions and make you look beautiful. For bonus ladylike appeal, showcase a few haute holiday details, such as lace, bows, and seasonal shades of red and gold.

For the fanciest fete on your list this season, don your most glamorous garb styled around the trendy Zigi Soho Tariff heels. The sparkling ankle-strap stilettos are a red-carpet-worthy confection. Allow them to inspire the rest of your elegant ensemble; glitz and glamour have never looked better.

Style Scoop: David Yurman Opens In Soho, Taylor Swift Poses for ASOS, Mallzee App, AKA “Tinder For Fashion” Launches

By  November 26, 2014

StyleScoopNov26David Yurman celebrates the opening of a Soho boutique on Wednesday. For the jeweler, the new location indicates a return to home: “I cut my teeth as a sculptor and an artist in this neighborhood—it truly is home for Sybil and me. What was the epicenter of gallery culture in New York has since evolved into a vibrant, international destination. We’re thrilled to be a part of this community’s past, present and future.” With the holidays around the corner, we’re thinking that the store’s exclusive Copper Cable Renaissance bracelet will make the perfect gift for someone special.

ASOS tapped superstar Taylor Swift to post on the cover of its January 2015 magazine. The photographs feature a ton of sparkle, while the feature article focuses on Swift’s friendships and how she keeps things real. She says, “My friends are the kinds of people that have their own lives, and their own busy schedules, and that’s why we get along so well.” [Fashion Gone Rogue]

Have you been going swipe-happy on Tinder lately? Consider taking things out of the dating app realm and into the shopping realm with an app that operates on swipes. Mallzee is the “Tinder for fashion,” and it launches today in the U.S., just in time for Black Friday/Cyber Monday shopping. With Mallzee, you can shop over 40 brands—everything from Topshop to small boutiques and high-end designers—and swipe left or right to find clothes suited to your taste. [Glam Inbox]

There’s nothing like a couture-laden Thanksgiving feast—at least, that’s what the rats who took up shop in Vogue’s new offices at 1 World Trade Center think. According to several sources, staffers are spotting the droppings everywhere including, yes, the accessories closet that holds the finest wears. A source explained that the rats probably came in through the venting, as workers were moving walls to accommodate last-minute design changes by, of course, Anna Wintour. [Gawker]

Suki Waterhouse is the latest subject in Mario Testino’s towel series. The British model joins the list of famous faces to pose in Testino’s series, including Karlie Kloss, Naomi Campbell, and Miley Cyrus. [Fashion Gone Rogue]

Every 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.

Ever since Amal Alamuddin walked into George Clooney‘s life–and therefore, into the spotlight–she’s rocked one amazing outfit after the next. Their wedding weekend, of course, was no exception and her fashion show of frocks seriously impressed (echem, Giambattista Valli, Oscar de la Renta, Dolce & Gabbana, Stella McCartney). Now, nothing has changed save for her name: Amal Clooney is a bona-fide style star…especially when she has George on her arm.

 

 

Style Scoop: Terry Richardson Is Valentino’s Hand Model, Melissa McCarthy Tries Design, Andre Leon Talley Does Wearable Tech With Will.i.am

By  November 25, 2014

StyleScoopNov25Terry Richardson serves as Valentino’s hand model once again. The photographer’s arms accompany Valentino’s Resort 2015 accessories in the brand’s latest campaign. While Richardson’s tattoos are pretty much unmistakable, we can’t really focus on anything other than those incredible vibrant shoes, backpacks and handbags. Skittles got it wrong—we want to wear the rainbow…in the form of Valentino, of course. [Fashion Gone Rogue]

Melissa McCarthy is channeling her inner designer (something she’s wanted to do since grade school) and is teaming up with Gerard Guez’s Sunrise Brands to create a fashion line, including accessories and beauty products for women. The collection, which is not yet named, will launch for fall 2015 at department and specialty stores in the U.S., Canada and U.K. She’s not restricting her line to plus sizes: “I’m doing all sizes. It’s a strange thing to stop at a certain size. Women don’t, so why should clothes?” [Women’s Wear Daily]

André Leon Talley hasn’t even officially left Zappos, but he already has another project up his sleeve. The former Vogue editor will be the new fashion and style director for Will.i.am and his i.am.Puls fashion bracelet. This form of wearable tech is a bracelet, similar to a smartwatch or a cuff, that incorporates technologies and allows the user to make calls, send texts, post to social media, play music and track fitness. [Women’s Wear Daily]

Republic Collective, a multi-brand holiday pop-up shop in Soho opens today until December 29 (hours are 11a.m.-7p.m. daily). The concept shop features 20+ brands for men, women and home and also boasts and e-commerce boutique at RepublicCollective.com. With brands like Black Halo, Big T NYC and Hipanema, there’s something here for everyone on your holiday gift list. [Glam Inbox]

According to reports, John Galliano will head to London next week to present Anna Wintour with her Outstanding Achievement Award at the 2014 British Fashion Awards. The editor of American Vogue and artistic director of Condé Nast will be recognized during the ceremony at the London Coliseum for her contribution to the fashion industry on December 1. Stay tuned for confirmation. [Women’s Wear Daily]

By  November 25, 2014

Talk about a holiday soirée! Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett provide the entertainment for a super swanky party, for guests including Joan Smalls, Sasha Pivovarova and more beautiful people, all dressed up in their H&M best. Featuring fur, sequins, beading and lace (plus, you know, a full swing band and dancers), H&M’s Magical Holidays campaign is quite extravagant and all kinds of glamorous—I mean, did you see that wig?!

While good music was the focus of last night’s American Music Awards, there was no shortage of good fashion. Not only did Taylor Swift deliver a wildly entertaining performance of her song “Blank Space,” but she also looked flawless as she accepted her Dick Clark Award for Excellence (the first-ever!), which was presented by Diana Ross. The singer looked totally glamorous and tasteful (no belly-button-baring outfits here!) in a green cut-out gown designed by Michael Kors.

By  November 24, 2014

StyleScoopNov24Beyoncé surprised everyone on Friday with a music video for her new song 7/11, and she’s at it again on the December-January 2015 cover of Interview Germany magazine. The special collectors issue features Queen Bey (those eyes!) in a black and white shot wearing a knit mask. Take a look at our Faces On The Newsstand slideshow for more January 2015 covers. [Fashion Gone Rogue]

Kim Kardashian put on some clothes for Elle UK this month. With her nude Paper magazine cover shoot behind her, the reality star covered up for her latest spread. Kardashian appears on two different covers for the glossy, with the subscriber cover reading “And God Created Kim.” Right. Is it, perhaps, a play on Kanye West’s song “I Am a God?” We’ll let you decide. [Fashionista]

Gap is joining German e-tail giant Zalando’s cooperative shop roster. Slated to start up next summer, the Gap shop will offer apparel and accessories from the Gap Women, Gap Men, GapKids and Baby Gap assortments. Gap joins brands like Adidas, Esprit, Hugo Boss, Levi’s, Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger, Mango and Topshop on Europe’s largest specialist footwear and fashion e-tailer. [Women’s Wear Daily]

Keeping up with Kendall is the name of the game in fashion lately. When news of Kendall Jenner’s Estée Lauder campaign hit the web, everyone was talking about it. In a profile for The New York Times, writer Matthew Schneier examines just how the young model is dominating her industry. While it has a lot to do with her striking beauty and hard work (and probably something to do with her name…), it comes down to her influence on social media that has really made Jenner a leader of the pack. [The New York Times]

Wildfox’s “Wildfox Loves Barbie” collection is officially available online at Wildfox.com, as well as Nordstrom, Bloomingdales, Saks Fifth Avenue, Planet Blue, Revolve Clothing and Fred Segal. The launch of the line kicked off in true Barbie style with a party at Wildfox’s West Hollywood flagship store. [Glam Inbox]

10 Stretchy Clothing Options For Your Thanksgiving Feast

By  November 24, 2014

ThanksgivingStretchy

With a hearty Thanksgiving meal comes the battle against the bulge—something that, with so many incredible food options placed in front of us, is one we usually lose. Since practicing restraint isn’t really an option on Thanksgiving, the only thing we can really do is try to wear clothing that’ll accommodate for an overstuffed stomach. We’re talking stretchy pants, drawstring waistbands and cozy knits that’ll look cute and keep us comfortable as we indulge, indulge, indulge…and indulge some more. Happy feasting!
