Style Scoop: AG’s New #whatmovesme Campaign, Flats For Fashion Week and Custom Illesteva Sunglasses, To Boot

By  August 22, 2014

StyleScoopAug22AG Jeans took to Tumblr to announce its new campaign, #whatmovesme, around a new denim collection called Contour 360. The Tumblr showcases a group of 15 influencers, including Meatball Shop co-founder Dan Holzman, Fohr Card co-founder James Nord and florist Eric Buterbaugh, each of whom appears in a video. AG even put the jeans on ballerinas to show just how stretchy they are—and it makes for a gorgeous video that you should probably watch. [Tumblr]

That Birkenstocks will rule the streets come Fashion Week is a given. But just because you might not want to give into this trend doesn’t mean you have to suffer in heels all week. Let’s make NYFW Spring 2015 the season of the flat shoe—after all, there are so many to choose from—and give our tired tootsies a bit of a break. [Fashionista]

They’re the sunglasses seen round the world—and now, you can customize them. Illesteva, the Italian luxury eyewear brand beloved by Beyoncé, Cara Delevingne and Katy Perry, specializes in incredibly cool sunglasses with color-tinted lenses and a painfully chic shape. While we pretty much love every style the brand already offers, we’re taking matters into our own hands and creating our very own. Can you say “Fashion Week Staple?” [InStyle]

Christopher Bailey, Burberry’s CEO and creative director, just sold £5 million—about $8.6 million—of his shares in the company. What does this mean, exactly? No one can be quite sure, but it doesn’t necessarily indicate a departure or lack of confidence in the house. There’s plenty more where that came from—Bailey retains 303,110 shares (worth a total of £4.37 million) in the house. Stay tuned for updates. [The Cut]

Shopping on the go is just becoming easier and easier. Universal shopping carts are definitely becoming a thing, as they aggregate all your picks to one place, no matter where you’re buying from. Sites and apps that are getting involved are Lyst, Keep, Two Tap and Cosmic Cart, and while it’s a little early to tell which ones will survive and just how this concept will take hold, keep them on your radar.

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.

There was nothing but good-looking people at the America’s Next Top Model Cycle 21 Premiere Party on Tuesday evening. Presented by NYLON and LINE (the world’s fastest growing messaging app) at SupperClub Los Angeles, celebrities and models alike turned out for the fashionable bash. The illustrious Tyra Banks was, of course, in attendance wearing a chic black jumpsuit, hot orange lipstick and slicked back hair. Oh, and she obviously smized the whole night long.

Something about the ear jacket trend always eluded me. A tad too edgy for my taste, the standard studs and spikes never seemed to fit with my aesthetic. But then something surprising happened, I found myself gravitating toward a pair that felt very me. My friend Melissa Lovy designed a collection of statement stunners that felt both deco and delicate. And these are just the earrings I need to enhance my fashion week wardrobe. The combination of adventurine and onyx fits right in with fall’s classic color palette. -Nola Weinstein

-The Bonnie Ear Jacket will be available in September for $175 at MelissaLovy.com; to preorder email Sales@MelissaLovy.com

Style Scoop: Kate Moss’ Breast Project Yet, Models Take On The Ice Bucket Challenge, Anna Wintour’s Clothing Allowance is How Much?!

By  August 21, 2014

StyleScoopAug2In case you were hoping to drink champagne from a glass that’s the shape of Kate Moss’ left breast, that time has come. If you think that’s incredibly random and a little strange, you’re not alone. To celebrate the supermodel’s 25 years working in the fashion industry, Mayfair restaurant 34 has modeled a champagne coupe on Moss’ left breast. The “creation” launches in October at 34 and its sister restaurants, The Ivy, Daphne’s and Scott’s in London. [Vogue UK]

Don’t be fooled into thinking that the fashion set is too fancy to dump ice water on their heads. Once Anna Wintour got in on the ALS Ice Bucket challenge action, we knew it really took hold. Other untouchable fashion folk that participated include Karlie Kloss, Alessandra Ambrosio, Behati Prinsloo, Jourdan Dunn, Gigi Hadid, Sara Sampaio, Kate Upton, Suki Waterhouse, Lily Aldridge and Barbara Palvin. [Fashion Gone Rogue]

Today, we learned a few things about Vogue, the fashion bible. T Magazine focused their “By the Numbers” feature on the glossy this time around, and discovered some pretty staggering facts. The one that really got us was the fact that Anna Wintour is allotted $200,000 to spend on her wardrobe, but there are more where that came from. [Glam Chic]

Wearable tech has come, but not gone, despite what you might have thought. A new startup is rearing its head just in time to help us get through Fashion Week. Q Designs is launching pre-orders for its first product, a sleek bracelet that conceals enough rechargeable lithium-ion battery to give your phone a 60 percent charge. Jewelry and a charged phone: get at us, Fashion Week. [Fashionista]

Sarah Jessica Parker’s second collection of shoes is hitting Nordstrom. The collection will, again, be exclusive to the department store, and features autumnal tones and fall-appropriate styles. There are handbags, too, which hit an under-$500 price point. [Fashionista]

6 Things We Learned About Vogue

By  August 21, 2014

BytheNumbersVogueT Magazine’s latest “By the Numbers” feature shines a light on the fashion bible: Vogue. It’s about time, if you ask us, since it’s kind of what makes the fashion world go round. And despite how much we talk about Anna Wintour and the empire that is Vogue, there were some things we were surprised to learn.

  1. Wintour loves Amber Valletta. The actress has appeared on the cover 17 times since Anna Wintour has been editor-in-chief. Before Wintour, Diana Vreeland favored Brigitte Bauer and Jean Shrimpton, who each covered the magazine 19 times.
  2. In Wintour’s first five years as editor in chief, 13% of covers featured celebrities; over the last five years, 93% of covers featured celebrities.
  3. Vogue’s longest reigning editor in chief, Edna Woolman Chase, served 37 years.
  4. There’s only been one hashtag ever printed on the magazine: #worldsmosttalkedaboutcover in April 2014. Sigh.
  5. The glossy, while high fashion, is no stranger to the wilderness. Vogue has featured 19 exotic animals in fashion spreads alongside famous faces, including a cheetah (with Kim Basinger), an elephant (with Keira Knightley), a skunk (with Reese Witherspoon), a gibbon (with Marisa Berenson) and a python (with Nastassja Kinski).
  6. It’s rumored that Wintour has a $200,000 clothing allowance. Bring on the Prada.

Madonna’s Goods Go Up For Grabs

By  August 21, 2014

MadonnaauctionCome November 7, all of your Material Girl dreams can come true. Dig deep into those wallets, Madonna fans, because the largest collection of Madge memorabilia is about to be auctioned off, Page Six reports. Everything from prints of nudes shot by Bill Stone from 1979 to “the latex mask, waspie, gloves, bra and panties worn with Katy Perry for a 2014 V magazine cover photoshoot.”

While nothing that’s part of the auction is currently in Madonna’s possession, all items have, at some point, been worn or touched by her. If you’re a die-hard fan, prepare to shell out thousands upon thousands for any one part of the collection. After all, the woman is worth $1 billion, so a pair of her worn panties for approximately $1,000 is pretty much a steal.
