Lauren Conrad Dishes Wedding Details

By  August 26, 2014


Don’t call Lauren Conrad a Bridezilla! The lifestyle guru recently dished to Martha Stewart Weddings details on upcoming nuptials, and despite having designed the bridesmaids dresses herself, Conrad seems pretty laid back about the whole thing.


First, the future Mrs. Tell had special necklaces made for her prospective bridal party and chose to keep the look simple and sweet. “My jewelry team at Kohl’s found this little diamond ring piece that looks just like my ring, so I did rose gold necklaces for everybody and then sent it with a will-you-be-my-bridesmaid’ card,” she told Martha Stewart Weddings.

In terms of fashion, Conrad wanted her girls to look cohesive without compromising their individual aesthetic. The fall issue of the bridal bible features five of the looks from her upcoming Paper Crown Bridemaids line that she designed for them. “I sent them all the different shapes and let them pick from two colors. I don’t mind if there are a few girls in the same dress, or if people are all in different ones. It’s too difficult to take a group of girls and put them in the same color and silhouette; everyone has their own style.” 

Her care-free California attitude also translated to the beauty looks– Conrad wants her girls to get glammed up however they feel is best, save for the necessary neutral nail polish. “I’m letting the girls do whatever they want, “ she explained. “Again, I think that weddings are about celebrating, and you want everyone to feel comfortable, so I think it’s about whatever is going to make them feel pretty. Understated is always best, so I think trying to go more classic is always a nice choice because you don’t want anybody to stand out in a negative way.”

Lucky ladies; if only all brides could be so easy going!

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.

…After the show is the after party. In last night’s case, Emmy attendees and other celebrities headed to various soirees where they showed off their trophies, schmoozed and probably drank a lot. And of course, many of them take the after parties as an opportunity to show off yet another outfit. Bring ‘em on ladies: the more looks, the better!

Style Scoop: Saint Laurent Moves to LA, Chloe Sevigny Has A Book In The Works, LVMH Might Be Trying To Acquire Proenza Schouler

By  August 26, 2014

StyleScoopAug26Operation: “Reform Project” commences at Saint Laurent as Hedi Slimane moves the brand’s flagship from Paris to Los Angeles. By focusing on the culture of Los Angeles, Slimane is zeroing in on what he believes Mr. Saint Laurent would do himself today. The Los Angeles store will have three stories and occupy 10,000 square feet of space right on Rodeo Drive, complete with a back entrance in an alley for celebrities. [WSJ]

Chloe Sevigny isn’t exactly as schooled in selfies as Kim Kardashian is, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t deserve a self-titled book. Chloe Book, a hardcover book by Rizzoli that costs $35, which celebrates a fashion icon “famous for looking cool without looking like she’s trying,” puts this cool girl’s history and evolving style at the center of attention. Deservedly. [Fashionista]

Is LVMH about to stake claims on Proenza Schouler? Details of the deal aren’t known, but talk is swirling about a 40% stake in the brand, established in 2002 by Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez. The rumored acquisition would follow that of Nicholas Kirkwood, JW Anderson and Giuseppe Zanotti, all of which saw investments from LVMH over the last year. [Vogue UK]

In an interview with Racked, Vanessa Friedman defends fashion criticism and explains why, even in the age of blogging and new media, it’s still relevant. No doubt, it’s a tough job—as New York Magazine put it, “criticize a designer’s work, and you can forget about an invitation to the next show; gush about it, and lose your integrity.” Friedman talks about the fine line between criticizing and gushing, as well as her own personal experience in the fashion industry. The New York Times fashion director and chief fashion critic will embark on her first NYFW analysis for the paper next week. [Racked]

The sun’ll come out…at Target. In honor of the upcoming contemporized film (which stars Jaime Foxx, Quvenzhané Wallis, Rose Byrne, Bobby Cannavale and Cameron Diaz) Target is launching a limited edition Annie-themed girl’s collection. The 25-piece collection includes apparel and accessories under $30 and launches November 16. [Women’s Wear Daily]

Jeremy Scott and Miley Cyrus Have Something Up Their (Lack Of) Sleeves

By  August 26, 2014

MileyJeremyScottThis makes so much sense: Jeremy Scott is teaming up with Miley Cyrus. While we’re not exactly sure about the nature of the collaboration (we’re pretty certain it’ll involve cartoonish details, plenty of skin and eye-popping colors), Scott revealed at the MTV Music Awards that, “Miley and I have something very exciting we’re brewing up for the future.” Certainly, it’s not for the too-distant future either. The designer said that the project was for his eponymous New York Fashion Week show and would involve “a group of cool kids, rather than models.” Scott is letting Miley handle the announcement herself—and something tells us it’ll catch our eye when it happens, so stay tuned.

Tom Ford Accepts The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

By  August 26, 2014

The latest member of the fashion set to accept the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge is none other than Tom Ford. The designer joins the ranks of industry notables including Anna Wintour, Mario Testino, Jean Paul Gaultier and Kate Moss in accepting the challenge and posting the video for all fans and followers to see. Victoria Beckham called on Ford, who carried out the challenge at his Texas ranch with the help of his husband Richard Buckley. Denim on denim and a chic leather bucket were involved, naturally. Next up are Louis Vuitton’s Nicolas Ghesquière and Saint Laurent’s Hedi Slimane, per Ford’s nomination.

Iggy Azalea and Steve Madden Team Up

By  August 26, 2014

IggyAzMaddenShe’s definitely in the “fast lane” as far as fashion is concerned. Fancy singer Iggy Azalea has appeared in an ad campaign, made appearances at fashion shows and parties, scored a hosting gig for MTV’s House of Style and continues to make statements on and off the red carpet. And now, she’s collaborating with Steven Madden. “The idea for a collaboration came about a few months ago when Iggy performed in Brooklyn as part of our Madden Music series,” a spokesperson for the shoe brand said. “She has an extremely gifted eye for fashion, and we’re working on the collection now.” Given her fashion choices of late, we’re banking on this collab being “fancy” in more ways than one.

By  August 25, 2014


Television’s most talented primped and preened in anticipation of the 2014 Emmy Awards, and the results did not disappoint. As summer comes to a close, it was less than shocking that many of TV’s leading ladies opted for white, but black, red, and silver stole the show as well. See who made our best dressed list.

Celebrities might not be rolling down the Emmy Awards red carpet until this evening, but they’re already prepping. With a weekend filled with pre-Emmys bashes and events, there’s been more than enough fashion for us to feast on already. We had a ton of fun with VMA style (thanks Nicki, Katy and TayTay), but we’re craving a little bit of elegance this evening–and here’s somewhat of an appetizer.

Style Scoop: US Equestrians Get Decked in Hermès, VMAs Attendees Threw It Back, Vogue Gets an Online Facelift

By  August 25, 2014

StyleScoopAug25The US Equestrian Federation is getting a pretty luxe deal—Hermès apparel and accessories for all USEF teams. The house will dress riders and their horses with everything including saddle pads, shadbellies, breeches and waterproof outerwear. The technical riding apparel and gear made its debut at the World Equestrian Games, which will begin September 7 in Normandy, France. Luckily, it’ll also be available at Hermès boutiques in New York City and Beverly Hills for die-hard Hermès fans. [Women’s Wear Daily]

So, the VMAs were filled with fashion good and bad, but we’re focused on the amount of nostalgia that this year’s show provided. There was Katy Perry and Riff Raff paying homage to Britney and Justin circa 2001, and even an interpretation of Rose McGowan’s barely there chain dress from 1998. While many of these looks gave us a good laugh, they may just be better as MTV VMA history. [Fashionista]

Vogue might be the authority on fashion and style, but the same doesn’t necessarily go for Vogue.com. The magazine is expected to unveil a revamped website on Wednesday that will better “translate its print sensibility to the openness and speed of online journalism,” according to the New York Times. Sally Singer, Vogue’s creative director for digital, describes a broader and more interactive site that doesn’t simple replicate the magazine: instead, “a new Vogue under the auspices of Vogue.” [NYTimes]

How does a New York Fashion Week experience curated by Chloé sound? Trump SoHo New York is teaming up with the French fashion house for a one-of-a-kind NYFW shopping opportunity. The Chloé Curated Shopping Experience (available August 25-September 30) will assist guests in dressing for a fashion show, date night or simple walking the NYC streets in style. Guests of Trump SoHo will be chauffeured to the Chloé Greene Street boutique, where they will meet with a Chloé stylist for a consultation. A minimum purchase of $2,500 is required, but the goods and gifts are definitely worth it. Visit www.trumpsoho.com or call (212) 842-5500 for hotel reservations and (646) 350-1770 to book your Chloé experience. [Glam Inbox]

Derek Lam collaborated with Mark Cross to create a sleek, structured tote. The bag has gold hardware and comes in two sizes (the small one retails for $2,495 and the large for $3,495) and three colors (Fall Green, Rust and Black). It’ll be hitting stores just as New York Fashion Week kicks off, and we’re guessing that in the spirit of things, it’ll do quite well among the fashion set. Get yours at Derek Lam stores and Barneys New York. [Glam Inbox]

Best Dressed at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards

By  August 24, 2014

As the world awaits who’ll take home a moonman or two at tonight’s MTV Video Music Awards, winners are already captivating its red carpet. Unlike the elegant Academy Awards and dress-code abiding Grammys, the VMAs carpet is one where musicians and celebrities showcase the more extreme, unconventional side of their personal style—like Lil Kim in this at the 1999 show, and Lady Gaga’s meat dress circa 2010. Still, there are sartorial victories, and tonight, plenty of A-listers are stepping up—in Brian Atwood and Christian Louboutin, no less—and garnering the right kind of attention.


Tonight, “Yoncé” crew, Jourdan DunnChanel Iman, and Joan Smalls, pledge their allegiance to the Balmain army, while Ariana Grande continues to shed the innocence of Nickelodeon years past in Moschino. We applaud their looks, as well as those from Jennifer LopezNicki MinajIggy Azalea, and more, who shot for the moon, and landed among the stars.
