Style Scoop: Miley Cyrus Poses for V, Rebecca Minkoff Does Wearable Tech, Abercrombie & Fitch Ditches Its Logo

By  August 29, 2014

StyleScoopAug29Miley Cyrus poses on top of a bed of stuffed animals for the 91st issue of V Magazine. Dubbed “The Rebel Issue,” the starlet poses for Karl Lagerfeld in a custom Fendi bodysuit modeled after the fuzzy friends on which she sits. It’s just about the least wearable bathing suit ever but, hey, she looks pretty good in it. [Fashion Gone Rogue]

Rebecca Minkoff is the latest designer to dive into the wearable tech trend. Created in partnership with Case-Mate, the five-item collection includes a bracelet, a compact mobile charger, iPhone cases and a wristlet that come in various colors. The pieces retail for $40-$80 and will go on sale at rebeccaminkoff.com and in Nordstrom in September—after they debut at the designer’s New York Fashion Week runway show, of course.

We hope you’ve saved some of your old Abercrombie & Fitch sweatshirts and t-shirts, because soon, the retailer’s logo will be no more—and you’ll have straight-up vintage moose garb on your hands (eBay anyone). The retailer is following suit with other brands and moving away from the logo business, primarily because its customers are less interested in them. It seems we’ve officially exited the early 2000’s. [Women’s Wear Daily]

Kendall Jenner is no longer a Jenner. She’s just…”Kendall.” K. [Glam Chic]

She already starred in a cooler-than-cool ad campaign for Rag & Bone, and now Winona Ryder appears in the brand’s video component of the Fall ’14 campaign. She takes her booties to the boardwalk, where she plays arcade games upon arcade games (damn that claw!), and looks pretty much how we look when we get tangled up in ticket winnings—minus the awesome clothes and super-glam smile.

AlessandraAmbrosiopostEvery 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.

Venice is buzzing with celebrities as the city’s film festival gets underway. And, of course, since we’re focusing our eyes on Italy, you’d better bet that we’re keeping them peeled for incredible fashion. Emma Stone kicked off an impressive bout of red carpet walks, and models Alessandra Ambrosio and Constance Jablonski continued it. Then, Miuccia Prada’s girls were on hand for Miu Miu’s short film’s premiere, and all dressed head-to-toe in playful Miu Miu garb. Which look do you love?







Labor Day Dressing: Celebrities who Do White, Right

By  August 29, 2014

0_Celebs in White Slide

If you’re one to follow the rules, you’ve got just a few more days to wear your summer whites. Once Labor Day ends, conservative dressers swear off all-blanched-everything and kick the achromatic hue to the curb until warmer weather commences. Of course, said rule was meant to be—and has been—broken, time and time again. Still, there’s nothing wrong with a little inspiration to get you in the spirit. Channel Jessica AlbaBeyoncé, and even baby North West and get your all-white look, right.

It’s Just…Kendall

By  August 29, 2014

KendallJennerNameKendall Jenner is now the artist formerly known as Kendall Jenner. According to the official site of her modeling agency, The Society, the budding model dropped her famous last name and will  just be known as Kendall. As she told Love magazine in July, she thinks her family’s name is working against her where her career is concerned. “People think that this [success] just came to me,” she said. “But it didn’t. What I have almost worked against me…I went on castings and some people weren’t feeling me because of my name. But it’s great when people didn’t recognize me.”

They might not know who she is in a casting, but you can bet that we’ll recognize her coming down any runway. As long as she’s got that K in the beginning of her name, we can’t say we’ll be willing to separate her completely from her roots. K?

Glam Bloggers Show Off Plus Size Styles to Rock This Labor Day Weekend

By  August 28, 2014


The Glam girls have got chic summer style in spades! Though the heat is still on, you’ll want to look cute when keeping cool, regardless of your size. With Labor Day around the corner, we curated a few choice looks from our favorite bloggers you’ll want to recreate over the holiday weekend.

Style Scoop: Barbie Joins Instagram, Vogue Italia’s Anniversary Cover Marks The Return of the Model, Valentino Makes Rockstud Sneakers

By  August 28, 2014

StyleScoopAug28Instagram just got a taste of what it’s like to be a Barbie Girl—from Barbie herself. The original style icon hopped on social media on Wednesday with an Instagram handle: @barbiestyle. Her posts consist of outfits of the day and accessories shout outs. She looks like a seasoned fashion blogger already. [Huffington Post]

Vogue US’s cover was pretty epic, but Vogue Italia’s 50th anniversary issue might just trump it. The fold-out cover, shot by Steven Meisel, features models Linda Evangelista, Naomi Campbell, Natasha Poly, Anna Ewers and more. The vintage-looking shot gives a nostalgic look at fashion history: when models covered magazines, as opposed to high-profile celebrities. It’s official: models are making a comeback. [The Fashion Spot]

This is not your average Rockstud. The ubiquitous Valentino Rockstud is getting remixed—into a sneaker. In honor of the fashion house’s new three-story flagship on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan, creative directors Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli are debuting a limited edition, unisex style of “Rockrunner” sneakers to be sold exclusively at the location. There’s white-on-white camouflage, red hearts, and of course white studs. [T Magazine]

In a fashion week first, Bill de Blasio will welcome the CFDA to Gracie Mansion on Wednesday, September 3 for a cocktail party kickoff. Since his wife, Chirlane McCray, has demonstrated an interest in American designers, it makes sense that de Blasio is showing his support for New York’s fashion industry. Formal invitations were sent to Diane von Furstenberg, Prabal Gurung and Zac Posen, among others, for the momentous fashion event. [Women’s Wear Daily]

As a bona-fide celebrity do-gooder, Sophia Bush is doing what she does best in collaboration with Joe Fresh. The starlet teamed up with the retailer to make a t-shirt that advocates for equal rights. The idea behind the graphic tee is that “all kisses are created equal, and love should never be divided.” The shirt is available not for $24 at joefresh.com. [InStyle]

If you’re making your way to New York for the frenzy that is Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, chances are you won’t have time to do much pampering, let alone breathe. Luckily, Triumph Hotels is teaming up with cityMANI to offer quickie manis throughout the week. Using personalized Pretty Please polishes named after the hotels, you’ll be able to get polished pretty when you’re really in need. Here’s the full schedule:

Hotel Belleclaire, 250 West 77th Street and Broadway: Thursday, September 4 10a.m.-2p.m.

The Cosmopolitan Hotel Tribeca, 95 West Broadway and Chambers Street: Friday, September 5 10a.m.-2p.m.

Washington Jefferson Hotel, 318 West 51st Street between 8th and 9th Ave.: Monday, September 8 10a.m.-2p.m.

The Gershwin Hotel, East 27th Street between Madison and 5th Ave.: Tuesday, September 9 10a.m.-2.pm. [Glam Inbox]

Editor’s Pick: Nike x J. Crew Blazer Sneakers

By  August 28, 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.EdPickNikesI know, I know. It took me a while. I just had to take my time to find a pair of the right street style-worthy sneakers. The process went a little bit like this: I saw them everywhere this past spring, and therefore decided that Stan Smith’s had come and gone; sneaker wedges just aren’t my look; the duds with metallic detailing are cool, but not my aesthetic either; and simply put, my worn-out white Converse low-tops just weren’t going to cut it at Lincoln Center.

When I finally came across these vintage-y Nike sneakers, I immediately knew that they deserved a place in my (already full) New York City-sized closet. They’re suede, but the light color makes them wearable nearly year-round—not to mention the fact that, they’re neutral, AKA my perpetual palette of choice. But even so, I was drawn to them because they just weren’t trying too hard, like some “fashion kicks” tend to do. These high-tops are a Nike classic, but with J.Crew’s help, they received a jolt of modern-day trend. So, when will I wear them, you ask? When every other fashionista in New York City will be fashionizing her sneakers, of course: all over New York Fashion Week. While I do think sneakers-as-a-trend is the best excuse the fashion set could come up with for wanting to trade in pointy stilettos and sky-high platforms for something more wearable, my feet will surely be thanking me for submitting to it. –Lauren Kaplan

Emma Stone is always a red carpet stunner, but she had somewhat of a moment at the premiere of Birdman in Venice, Italy. The striking starlet chopped her hair for the occasion, and picked out one of the most delightful gowns we’ve seen her wear in a while. Recently, she’s been favoring crop tops and casual braids for a laid-back approach to red carpet dressing, but we very much like where she’s headed with this glamorous look.
