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

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.

Style Snaps: August 20, 2014

SinCitypostEvery 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.

Sin City: A Dame To Kill hits theaters on August 22, and at the Los Angeles premiere of the film, the movie’s four main dames were certainly out to kill the fashion game. This adaptation of Frank Miller’s graphic novels brings together some pretty incredible talent: Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Bruce Willis, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Rosario Dawson and Jamie King are just a few actors involved in the crime-thriller (Lady Gaga also makes an appearance!). And, as you might have guessed, we were pretty blown away by what they bright to the red carpet on Tuesday evening.

 

 

 

 

Editor's Pick: Maya Brenner's Maryland Necklace

Three years ago, I stumbled across Maya Brenner‘s initial necklaces and immediately Tweeted about my love and desire for a “B” version of my very own. For my birthday that year, my boyfriend at the time surprised me with that exact necklace. I know, swoon. True story, I’ve worn it every day since, through workouts, beach vacations, and even hiking across the Inca Trail. So when Brenner came out with state necklaces, I knew I needed to add one to my Maya Brenner accessories collection.  

Even though I’ve lived in New York since I packed up my bags and moved to the city for college at 18, I’ll always be a Baltimore girl at heart. That’s why there was no question when it came time to pick a pendant; without question I chose the MD charm instead of the NY one. Despite the fact that I pay rent in the Big Apple and adore my city, I can’t let go of my Maryland license, I always have Old Bay on my desk, obsessively wear Under Armour, and I regularly use my Brewar’s Art goblet as a water glass at home. Keeping my appreciation for #MDLivin close to my heart with Brenner’s state necklace is just another way to show my love for Bmore. - Bianca Posterli

Anna Wintour Just Did The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

By  August 20, 2014

When Bee Shaffer challenged her mother, Anna Wintour, to the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, we couldn’t imagine how she’d handle it. But to our surprise, the Vogue editor-in-chief handled it gracefully and jovially, alongside seven members of her family. She has everyone positioned in a way that makes it look like she’s sitting front row at a fashion show, legs crossed and all (she just can’t help herself can she?)—only this one involves a bucket of ice water. Next up: Roger Federer and Dominic West. Watch as Wintour, her trademark sundress, unmistakable sunnies and signature bob get drenched with ice-cold water, resulting in a Vogue editor-in-chief like we’ve never seen before.

Style Scoop: Marc Jacobs is Moving, Go Shopping With Kate Upton, Hearst Retains Faith In Print

By  August 20, 2014

StyleScoopAug20Marc Jacobs is moving! Well, he’s just shifting his show time slot from 8p.m. to 6p.m. on September 11, the final day of New York Fashion Week. WWD Reports that Jacobs and company president Robert Duffy were motivated to shift the time to accommodate editors and buyers who plan to attend London Fashion Week and leave for the airport from the show. Additionally, the show will take place at the Seventh Regiment Armory instead of Jacobs’ usual venue, the 69th Regiment Armory, because of a scheduling conflict. [Women’s Wear Daily]

Want to go on a shopping spree with Kate Upton? The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover girl is auctioning off the chance to join her for a shopping spree at Express in conjunction with Charitybuzz. The auction (live here) runs through Thursday, August 21 and is part of the Creative Artists Agency School Day Auction to benefit Communities in Schools and DonorsChoose.org. Also on the auction block are Robert Downey Jr., Kate Hudson, James Franco and Halle Berry. [Glam Inbox]

While most publishers are focusing efforts on the online space, Hearst is steadfast in print. So much so that it’s launching another print product called TrendingNY, a free newspaper-magazine hybrid that will focus on New York-centric cultural events, restaurants and what’s in stores and will be handed out in the New York metro area. The “short, easy read,” according to Ellen Levine (editorial director of Hearst Magazines), will be made a regular Hearst occurrence if it does well during a test period from September 8 through September 30. [Women’s Wear Daily]

Congratulations are in order for Lucky editor-in-chief, Eva Chen! The street style maven announced that she’s expecting a little girl come winter 2015. Judging by the mini New Balance sneakers and Chanel bag (which match her own, no less) she included in her daily #evachenpose Instagram shot, this is going to be one seriously well-dressed baby. [Instagram]

How could we forget about Pharrell Williams’ hat from the 2014 Grammy Awards? We couldn’t and it looks like we never will. The Vivienne Westwood hat, which was sold to fast-food chain Arby’s in a charity auction, will be on display in Washington D.C.’s Newseum starting on August 22. Arby’s is loaning the most famous hat ever for a short-term exhibit, because “the garment resembles the impact of social media on a news story.” [HuffPo Style]

And the September issue covers just keep rolling in! The most recent edition to be added to our September 2014 cover collection is Interview magazine’s, which features Keira Knightley, Naomi Campbell, Nicole Kidman, Amber Valletta, Daria Werbowy and Léa Seydoux. [Glam Chic]

Looks We Love: Work Wear Goes Uptown

By  August 19, 2014

Glam_Levis_Uptown_Slice

Ultra-cool street style from punk to prep have one thing in common: unconventional creativity. Any savvy fashion fiend will tell you that the foundation of a statement-making look is the ability to make the unexpected work, to combine carefully curated but offbeat pieces from your wardrobe together into a seamlessly styled ensemble.

One of the loveliest ways to explore this idea is through mixing classic work-wear pieces—flannel shirts, utility boots, comfortable denim—with more upscale, dressy styles. Here’s one of our favorites ways to do it.

Let the laid-back Americana aspect of the look shine through with the perfect pair of denim pants. Levi’s 501® jeans offer a worn-in appearance with a cut that’s straight through the hip with a slightly tapered leg and signature button fly. Turning heads from errands to cocktails, the results speak for themselves. Carefully crafted with precise attention to detail and timeless quality, they prove versatile enough to act as the ideal work-wear type of jean to dress up.

To bring in the uptown aesthetic of our desired look, add a pair of chic pumps and a tailored blazer. Feel free to get creative with the color and print of these always-sharp pieces. For your bag, a sleek tote or clutch is a fine finishing touch to bring that downtown denim to elevated elegance.

501® Jeans for women, available at Levi’s for $98

Pearl arc pendant, available at BaubleBar for $28

Vince silk-front T-shirt, available at Farfetch.com for $327.47

Gianvito Rossi 100MM leather pumps, available at Luisaviaroma.com for $968

Stella McCartney blazer, available at Yoox.com for $452

Medellin top-handle tote, available at Shopprimadonna.com for $46.99

For me, August means sunny days on the beach, dance parties at (adult) summer camp, and nights overlooking city rooftops. But not one of these activities would be complete without a cold fruity beverage in hand.

While I’m a a girl who enjoys a beer on almost every other occasion, I’ve been totally won over by the flavored Pinnacle Vodkas. They’re perfect for when you (ahem, me) only have one other mixer in your fridge because the vodka already has a built in flavor–which also means less calories when mixing simple drinks. Here are two of my favorite combinations, so pour and enjoy, whether at camp, the beach or roof! –Michelle Kushner

Creamsicle Cocktail
1 Part Pinnacle Marshmallow or Whipped Vodka
1 Part Orange Juice
1 Part Sprite Zero

Summer Coconut Cake Cocktail
1 Part Pinnacle Cake Vodka
2 Parts Pineapple Coconut Skinnygirl Sparkler

Pinnacle Vodka, from $15.97
