KimKardashianPostEvery 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.

Given Kim Kardashian‘s new crop of fashionable besties, there was no question that she’d be making many-an-appearance at Paris Fashion Week. She and Kanye West (and their impressive collective cleavage) took the Paris runways by storm to cheer on sister/sister-in-law Kendall Jenner, support their industry BFF’s, show off baby North and, most importantly, their own stylish images. Though we’re thinking maybe someone went a little too heavy on the bronzer in this instance, the monochromatic palette Mrs. West been sporting in the City of Love is on-point. Kanye, once again, for the win.

Style Scoop: Molly Sims is Expecting, Tom Ford Will Return to London, Cara Delevingne Reveals DKNY Campaign

By  September 30, 2014


Molly Sims is expecting baby number two! The 41-year-old model, her husband Scott Stuber and their 2-year-old son, Brooks, will welcome the fourth member of their family early next year. Sims announced the news on her blog Tuesday morning, writing, “I absolutely cannot wait to see what life will be like as a mother to a toddler and a newborn, and I really can’t wait to see Brooks as an older brother to Baby #2! I just know that he’s going to be preciously protective.” [MollySims.com]

Tom Ford might be leaving London Fashion Week next season in favor of always-sunny Los Angeles (really, it has to do with a date shift in February’s fashion month schedule), but he’ll be back. In response to disappointed fashion insiders, Ford told WWD that, “I love London, and I am not abandoning London Fashion Week. It’s a onetime thing, it made sense for me, and I plan to be back in September.” Phew. [Elle UK]

The Cara Delevingne for DKNY campaign has finally arrived. The model used Instagram to scout models for the campaign and she found three guys and three girls to star in the ads alongside her. The winners of the competition include a model, a photographer and a graphic design student—all of whom look pretty fierce, if you ask us. [Fashion Gone Rogue]

Lane Crawford is teaming up with Chloé to produce an exclusive capsule called Chloe The Pink Wardrobe. Designed by Chloé creative director Clare Waight Keller, the collection includes 10 pieces such as dresses, t-shirts and knits. The line launches in stores and online on November 13.

Seafolly took a musical approach to its latest campaign: the bathing suit brand collaborated with emerging band Panama on the song “Stay Forever.” The collaboration also includes a music video featuring directed by Daniel Askill (who worked on Sia’s “Chandelier” video) and stars supermodel Martha Hunt. Watch it here. [Glam Inbox]

Chanel Gets Riotous: Instagrams From Witnesses of Fashion's Hautest Rally

By  September 30, 2014


Well, these are just some of the prettiest protesters we’ve ever seen. As per usual, Karl Lagerfeld took Paris Fashion Week by storm by literally doing just that–he unleashed his gang of models (clad in covetable clothes) on his very own Boulevard Chanel to stand up for women and fashion. The “protest” that was unleashed once the runway show ended was led by Cara Delevingne and included supermodel Gisele Bündchen plus plenty of new blood in the form of Georgia May Jagger, Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid. See how it unfolded, from backstage to the “streets,” by way of Instagram posts from models and attendees alike. Looks like Lagerfeld’s revolution is just getting started.

Amal Chose George…and Oscar

By  September 30, 2014

ClooneyAlamuddinPeopleIt’s confirmed: the bride wore Oscar! People Magazine’s newest issue (available Wednesday) features photos from George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin’s Venetian wedding—yes, including ample views of her gown. In addition to her pre-wedding outfits, by Dolce & Gabbana, Alexander McQueen and Giambattista Valli couture, Alamuddin’s wedding look is what bridal dreams are made of.

The stunning bride wore a custom French lace wedding gown by Oscar de la Renta, featuring an off-the-shoulder neckline and a full circular train. The traditional look matches the bride’s everyday style, which we’ve kind of been fixated on ever since she hopped into Clooney’s spotlight. Needless to say, on this day, Alamuddin outshined her new hubby, though he looked dapper in a classic Giorgio Armani tux. To top off her wedding look, Alamuddin wore natural pearl earrings with square-cut diamond accents made by Lebanese jeweler Chatila and, of course, a brand new platinum wedding band.

BeyonceGlobalCitizensEvery 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.

Now, that’s what we call a hair-flip. Attendees at The Global Citizen Festival were in for a surprise when Jay-Z “unexpectedly” invited his wife on stage to perform with him. Beyoncé and Jay performed “Holy Grail” and “Forever Young” to round out the six-hour long concert. Though there may or may not have been a wardrobe malfunction involved (let’s just say the jumping and bouncing Bey did resulted in several close calls…), their performance was as epic as you’d expect.

Style Scoop: Hollywood’s Ultimate Bachelor is Married, Reese Witherspoon Answers 73 Questions, Barbie’s $200K Comeback

By  September 29, 2014


In case you missed it, longtime bachelor George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin tied the knot over the weekend in Venice. A number of notables including Bono, Bill Murray, Cindy Crawford, Matt Damon and Anna Wintour attended as guests. The extravagant ceremony required that guests take a flotilla of water taxis across the canal for the ceremony. Word on the street is that Alamuddin wore Oscar de la Renta, though no photos are available just yet. [Glam Chic]

October cover girl Reese Witherspoon gets the Vogue treatment in the mag’s most recent episode of its 73 Questions series. In it, she shares her rapper name, her dream TV show cameo and the cutest thing on earth as she gives a tour of her vast, airy Los Angeles home. Is it just us, or does she still sound like Elle Woods? [Vogue]

Barbie is making a comeback this fall—one worth $200K, that is. The Karl Lagerfeld Barbie hit Net-a-porter on Monday and is already sold out. The 999 units that the e-tailer had to sell went for $200, but there are some available now on eBay…for up to $3,500. [Fashionista]

Just when you thought the H&M collaboration hype was settling down, the retailer announced its designer counterpart for next season. Following up Alexander Wang’s collection for the brand is Eddy Anemian. The 24-year-old designer was chosen as the winner of H&M’s design award. He won €50,000 and the opportunity to show his designs in the context of a collaboration with H&M, which will hit stores later this fall.  [Refinery 29]

Julia Restoin Roitfeld is taking to an unfamiliar medium: film. The blogger, photographer and model directed the latest short film in Stuart Weitzman’s ongoing series. This installment features Poppy Delevingne and Dylan Penn (daughter of Sean Penn and Robin Wright) and takes place in the Hamptons. It focuses on three pairs of boots from the fall line and incorporates a sixties vibe, but for Roitfeld, it was about timelessness: she said, ”I wanted it to feel timeless, like it could be any time—the Ninties, the Sixties or today.” [Women’s Wear Daily]

Style Scoop: Tom Ford Moves to Tinseltown, Louis Vuitton Gets Editorial, and Target Tries Wool

By  September 26, 2014


Tom Ford has called London Fashion Week home since 2011, but it looks like the designer’s September 15 showing of his Spring 2015 collection was also his last in the UK. Ford’s taking his runway show some 5,000 miles away to Los Angeles come February, announcing today that his Fall 2015 line will be shown in Southern California on the first day of London Fashion Week. But how will guests make his show, and the ones being put on in the traditional venues across the pond, you ask? No idea–we’ll just have to wait and see how Ford’s big move pans out. [Fashionista]

From purses to publications–that’s the direction Louis Vuitton is going in. The French luxury leather line will distribute a biannual in-house magazine called The Book to select recipients starting this month. The 126-page glossy, which features stunning imagery, exclusive interviews, and fascinating features surrounding the brand, features Yorgo Tloupas as its art director, LV’s artistic director, Nicolas Ghesquière as the template creator, and Sylvia Jorif, a contributor to French Elle, as editor. [WWD]

Target’s getting cozy this holiday season with a Faribault Woolen Mills partnership. The mass retailer and Minnesota-based company will launch their limited-edition collection of 100 percent wool scarves, throws, handbags, and tech accessories on November 2. [Glam Inbox]

Carven’s creative director Guillaume Henry may be leaving the line he brought back to life and heading to Nina Ricci. Having relaunched the former couture house five years ago, Henry would be a skilled successor for Ricci’s Peter Copping, who is rumored to be going to Oscar de la Renta. But for now, it’s all speculation…merely whispers amidst the style scene. Only time will tell who will be going where, and what it’ll mean for these luxury brands. [Vogue.co.uk]

In another switch type story circulating the fashion industry, Valérie Toranian has left her position as editorial director of French Elle. The change in editorial leadership comes as a result of the major restructuring currently underway at the French media group, Lagardère. Francoise-Marie Santucci, the former editor in chief at Next magazine, assumed Toranian’s role this week. [WWD]

Forever 21 is bringing music to our wardrobe with the help of Bravado, Universal Music Group’s leading global music merchandising company. The two labels launched The Beatles x Forever 21, a mini collection of men and women’s tees featuring The Beatles logo, images, and other trademarks of the legendary rock group. The ten piece line is available today! [Glam Inbox]

Side note – when’s she due?

Editor’s Pick: Lauren Ralph Lauren Mini Newbury Satchel

By  September 26, 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.

LaurenRalphLaurenI love a good monogram. In fact, I’ve worn one around my neck day in and day out for seven years and have several other treasures emblazoned with my initials. Maybe it’s the way the letters swirl into one another in romantic swoops, or just the fact that it identifies me in some way. Regardless, anything that has a spot for a little bit of “LAK” action catches my eye. It lends a classic touch, which brings me to the brand with which I not only share an appreciation for monogram, but also a name: Ralph Lauren.

So, imagine my excitement when I came across the monogram-able Lauren Ralph Lauren Mini Newbury satchel. The red bag caught my eye (because, naturally, it’s the perfect complement to my otherwise black-and-white wardrobe), and I couldn’t wait to make this classic a part of my bag rotation. Worn as a top handle or crossbody, this mini satchel is more versatile than it looks and will hold all of my necessities. A structured bag is something I’ve been after for a while now—and this little Lauren definitely fits the bill. I definitely didn’t resist the urge to have it monogrammed (gold, of course, to match the hardware), so consider this handbag territory marked. –Lauren Kaplan
