Style Snaps: August 28, 2014

EmmaStonepostEvery 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.

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.

CR Fashion Book Gives Us Another Reason To Bow Down To Beyoncé (As If We Really Needed One)

By  August 28, 2014

BeyCRFashionAs if her performance (not that that word even does it justice) at the VMAs wasn’t enough, Beyoncé is making more fashion news this week—as the cover star of the 5th issue of CR Fashion Book. It hits stands September 4, otherwise known as “B-Day.”

When CR Fashion Book shared the stunning cover on Instagram, our mouths just about hit the floor. Then, we saw photos from the spread on Tumblr, and our jaws actually did hit the floor. That stare! That hair! Dare we even speak about those other worldly cheekbones? Oh, and she also wrote a poem (remixed by Forrest Gander) called Bey The Light, which is featured alongside the incredible portraits. Carine: you struck sartorial gold with this spread.

Decked out in Yohji Yamamoto (on the cover), Prada, Saint Laurent, DKNY, Lorraine Schwartz, David Webb, Verdura, Givenchy and Harry Winston, Yoncé serves. it. up. We’re not even sure how that whole squat-and-simze thing is even humanly possible, but leave it to Beyoncé to prove that it most certainly is. In the scheme of one photoshoot, she manages to be sultry, full-on sexy, dangerous, a little bit silly (but, like, really, can we please look like that kind of black cat on Halloween?), humbled and powerful. How? We will never know.

Shot by Pierre Debusschere with creative direction from Riccardo Tisci, “The empress of pop meets a force of fashion. In her first collaboration with Carine Roitfeld, the ever-changing Beyoncé expresses her many moods, manners, auras, and multifaceted characters. All hail!” Lest we need to describe it in any other way: this is a bow down bitches fashion moment.

Heidi Klum Strikes A Balance In Athleisure

By  August 28, 2014

HeidiKlumNBWhat do you get when Heidi Klum and New Balance unite? The epitome of athleisure, naturally.

As one of the biggest topics in fashion and athletics, everyone is vying for a piece of the market. Consider Klum’s latest attempt a valiant one, because her New Balance designs are legit. This isn’t the first time the supermodel has teamed up with the activewear experts, and it makes sense: as far as activewear goes, leave it to Klum to make it completely chic.

The America’s Got Talent judge’s fall active wear line for New Balance is aimed at yoga and fitness enthusiasts. The line features animal prints, moody hues and a slashing effect. “In this collection, I also played with fabric cutouts that mimic a skeletal structure for an edgy and fashion-forward look,” Klum said. Making up the collection are bomber jackets, hoodies, tanks and capris, which are complemented by New Balance’s signature 890V4 running shoe and 715 training shoe. We wouldn’t be shocked to see these pieces at Lincoln Center next week…and then all over the gym the following week. They’re versatile and serve a purpose beyond just going to the gym, which is something that everyone seems to be after these days. If we were to turn the tables on Klum and judge her design work, we’d give her rave reviews.

The collection retails for $35-$95 and is available in stores and on the brand’s website.

Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett: Cheek to Cheek For H&M

By  August 28, 2014

LadyGagaTonyBennettHMLady Gaga and Tony Bennett are a dynamic duo that truly can’t be stopped. They’ve made waves in the music industry with their latest album collaboration, Cheek to Cheek, and now they’re making a fashion statement—with H&M. The artists, whose images are totally incongruous, unite for the retailer’s holiday campaign, which debuts at the end of November. Of note are some of H&M’s past big-name campaign stars: Beyoncé, Lana del Rey, Gary Oldman, Johnny Depp, Tyra Banks, Dave Gahan, Isabella Rossellini, Tony Ward, Lauren Hutton, Mads Mikkelsen, Bryan Ferry and Jade Jagger.

We have to say, this unlikely pair is really growing on us—they look pretty cute! The commercial features a track from their album with Gaga dressed in H&M, of course. Women’s Wear Daily reports that an extended version of the ad is also slated to appear on H&M’s website. Something tells us this commercial jingle will be stuck in our heads all holiday season long.

Arriving just in time for my vacation to Hawaii, OtterBox’s most fashion forward case yet couldn’t have been more suited for a stylish island getaway. Exploding with bold hues and edgy patterns, this high-powered iPhone cover managed to make a statement all in itself–the same way an awesome outfit or hot hairdo would. This comes as no surprise, of course, being that it was designed by a woman at the forefront of fashion today.

Nina Garcia, the Creative Director of Marie Claire, a “Project Runway” judge, and one of my favorite leaders in the industry is the creative behind my beautiful case. Her runway ready, fashion-oriented cover is part of OtterBox’s “Symmetry Series,” meant to keep smartphones safe in a sleek, slim, visually appealing cover. Garcia’s design, titled “Brazilian Pop!” and inspired by the movement and colors of beautiful Brazil is more than just a phone case. “It reflects my passion for style,” the style icon explains.

Fabulous it may be, but per OtterBox standards, Garcia’s couture cover proved functional too. My iPhone withstood shock from drops and remained scratch and dent free, protected along my ten day long Oahu adventure, from waterfall bound hikes to sand filled beach days…and everything in between. The colorful case is available to subscribers of the Nina Garcia ‘Brazilian Summer #NGQ03’ box and for a limited time, on the OtterBox website for iPhone 5/5s and the Galaxy S 5.

What to Pack for Adult Summer Camp

By  August 27, 2014

If you haven’t heard, summer camp isn’t just for youngsters anymore. Now that Color War is open to big kiddies (aka, adults) the summer staple of heading off into the woods for a week-long adventure is enjoying a revival of enthusiasm. Although the activities may be the same, (arts & crafts, tug of war, slip and slide) the necessities inside our trunks and backpacks are drastically different. Outside of the essentials like sheets, towels, and tennis shoes, here are a few of the goodies we’ll be packing in our weekend tote as we head back in time and return to camp.

what-to-wear-to-camp

  1. Jane Ireland’s Botanical Brush Spray may be billed as a makeup brush cleanser, but the mix of witchhazel and grapefruit extracts is actually the healthiest and most effective bug spray out there.
  2. As grown ups who are well versed in #HealthyObsessions, it’s impossible to go an entire weekend without an infusion of Liquiteria All Greens and jolt of energy from our go-to juice destination.
  3. Kind Bars – Healthy snacks with a touch of dessert, because we’re still kids at heart, clearly.
  4. The lake (and the slip and slide) is no place for a bikini. Bring on the return of one pieces!
  5. Honest Sunscreen Spray. Need we expand upon the necessity of SPF?
  6. We won’t tell the (non existent counselors) if this is filled with alcoholic Bug Juice instead of water.
  7. What’s camp without friendship bracelets?
  8. Camp gets cold at night, but a grey hoodie just won’t do when there are Instagram photos to be taken around the bonfire. This Forever 21 Cardigan will keep you warm and ready to pose with your camp boyfriend.
  9. If you’ve been holding out on re-upping your Birkenstock collection, let camp be the final excuse you need to return to the ‘90s.
  10. When it’s time for Color War, you’ll still stand out in your camp t-shirt as long as you pair it with these Sweaty Betty capris.

Fashion Rocks Takes Brooklyn

By  August 27, 2014

FashionRocksIt’s no secret that fashion and music go hand in hand—we constantly ask questions about what Beyoncé wore throughout her concert, the many outfits that Nicki Minaj sported at the VMAs, who’s designing costumes for Miley Cyrus’ next tour and that dress Rihanna wore to the CFDA Awards, where she accepted the 2014 Style Icon Award.

It makes sense, then, to bring the two together, purposefully, in one event. The biggest names in music and the hottest trends in fashion will return this year for Fashion Rocks on September 9 at Barclays Center—smack in the middle of Fashion Week, naturally. We’re talking Jennifer Lopez, Duran Duran, Nicki Minaj, Rita Ora, Usher and more all in one place on one night, in celebration of fashion and music. The live performance will be hosted by Ryan Seacrest, and will also be aired on CBS at 9p.m. Tickets are on sale now at Ticketmaster.com.

We’re heading into the final weekend of summer, so we’re sporting our summer garb wherever we can. We will not retire our jean shorts, dresses and sandals until it’s really really time. But with Fashion Week ambushing us early this year, that time might be closer than we thought. Take notes from celebrities–many of whom have been traveling of late–who are getting their layering on early this year, while still hanging on to a piece of summer.
