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

Style Scoop: Goop Meets Mackage, Sachin & Babi Launches E-Commerce, Kim Plays Hostess at PFW, and Milly Heads to Kohl's

By  September 25, 2014

STYLE-SCOOP-SEPTEMBER-25

Goop is on a collaboration roll. Immediately following the partnership with DVF, Gwenyth Paltrow‘s site has partnered with Mackage for a capsule collection of winter coats, leather pants, and swoon-worthy bags. Adorably, there are children’s sizes too so you can match with your mini-mes. [Glam Inbox]

Sachin & Babi is making an e-commerce push. On Thursday morning, the brand launched a new website in conjunction with a new blog and shoppable video. With a following of stylish stars including Jenna Dewan Tatum, Julie Bowen, Ireland Baldwin and more, we’re sure we’re not the only ones coveting most of the pieces featured in the video. Certainly, the brand’s exciting launch marks an equally exciting time for our closets. [Sachin & Babi]

Carolina Herrera president Caroline Brown is stepping down. After four successful years with the brand, Brown will leave her position at the end of the year, but with fashion still in her future. Rumor has it that she will be taking on the role of CEO at Donna Karan. [Vogue.co.uk]

After her front row appearance at Balenciaga with husband Kanye West and daughter North in tow, Kim Kardashian played hostess to a presentation party for Russian designer Natalia Alaverdian’s label A.W.A.K.E.  The event, co-hosted by Miroslava Duma, Caroline de Maigret, and Melvin Chua, was held at the decadent Peninsula Hotel in Paris and featured an A-list guest list including Theophilus London, Mario Testino, Kris and Kendall Jenner, and Anna dello Russo. Now that’s a party we wish we could have been a fly on the wall for. [WWD]

We can now add ready-to-wear clothing designer to Kelly Osbourne‘s ever growing resume. The lavender-locked Brit’s line, Stories…by Kelly Osbourne, launches today. The plethora of pieces, which includes unique patterns, shape-wear paneling, and feminine silhouettes, debuts exclusively on HSN. [Glam Inbox]

In Marie Claire’s October issue, audiences are sure to fall in love with actress Charlize Theron even more upon reading her witty, thoughtful, powerful, and humble responses to the magazine’s “20 Questions” editorial. One of our favorites? Upon asking what every woman should try at least once in her life, Theron replies, “Doing the complete opposite of what you’re told.” [Marie Claire]

Robert Clergerie is turning his sights on skates. The French luxury shoe designer has teamed up Heritage Paris to create an ultra exclusive roller skate-to-sneaker for men and women. How exclusive, you ask? Distribution is set for only five skates per store and one store per country. [WWD]

Add another awesome collaboration to your must-shop list, because Milly by Michelle Smith is headed to Kohl’s for spring 2015. Inspired by her recent trip to Italy, the designer says to expect influence from ”Capri’s technicolor vistas, dynamic Mediterranean culture and signature Caprese style of effortlessly chic dressing,” amidst her DesigNation collection. [Fashionista]

The Full Alexander Wang for H&M Campaign

By  September 25, 2014

alexander wang hm campaign

Alexander Wang afforded us a first look at his collaboration with H&M thanks to a well placed outfit on Rihanna during New York Fashion Week. Now the fashion fashion retailer and designer have officially released the campaign images, starring models Joan Smalls, Raquel Zimmermann, Isabeli Fontana and Natasha Poly alongside soccer player Andy Carroll and kickboxer Rivaldino dos Santos. Mikael Jansson photographed the group with Wang’s direction. “We wanted to take certain elements of each sport and portray the ultimate warrior,” he said. “The girls had to feel big and heroic, and Mikael used sunlight glares to heighten that effect against a stark white backdrop.”

The collection launches in stores on November 6. Will you be buying it?

Party Report: The Limited Goes Gladiator with ‘Scandal’ Collection

By  September 24, 2014

140924_Scandal the Limited

THE PARTY: The Limited Collection Inspired by Scandal Launch Party

THE PLACE: IAC Building, New York City

THE DEETS: When Scandal returns to ABC tomorrow night, gladiators will be able to look the part. After celebrating its third season last year at Saks Fifth Avenue, Emmy-nominated actress Kerry Washington and Scandal costume designer Lyn Paolo welcomed the fourth, in style, with a collection at The Limited.

Monday night, a fall 2014 capsule with sleek woven capes, drape collar coats, power trousers, and tailored suits was unveiled from the line—it read more like a full wardrobe than a one-off collaboration, much to our delight. “Olivia Pope is a modern day powerful woman,” Washington shared. “She is too busy to follow trends and looks for key pieces to incorporate into her wardrobe—look at her amazing outerwear collection. She is always on the move, so it’s important to have a statement coat that carries across seasons.” Much like the Max Mara one that Pope donned throughout season three (which helped conceal Washington’s pregnancy), but for the woman who doesn’t quite have Pope’s budget.

While Washington posed on the red carpet with Paolo and The Limited senior VP of design Elliot StaplesDJ Reach got into the groove with hits from UsherAaliyah, and Trey Songz. Socialite Bevy Smith and award-winning stylist DiAndre Tristan made air-kissed rounds, with Tristan likely scoping pieces for one of his top clients, Good Morning America anchor Robin Roberts. If Washington’s description of the wares is any lead, we’re sure to see Roberts, and other “gladiators” dressing the part, soon.

“The collection is a nod to our devoted fans,” Washington added. “To fans of fashion and to women everywhere who are inspired to boldly pursue their passions and look good while doing it.” Sounds like us Glam girls! 

Insider Picks: Stylish Workout Gear Made For Barre and Boot-Camp Girls

By  September 24, 2014

Barre versus boot camp … boot camp versus Barre—no matter which gets your heart pumping, a positive attitude, strong commitment, and kick-a** workout wardrobe is bound to come in handy. Both body-burning fitness trends are made for women who take health and fitness seriously and deserve pro-approved clothing and equipment to match.

As a top choice of leading athletes like Lindsey Vonn and Misty Copeland, Under Armour is well seasoned in the importance of the connection between specific physical activities and their corresponding outfits. This season, they’re encouraging females of all fitness levels to “will what they want” by gearing up in clothes that make them feel stylish and strong for each and every workout occasion. For our Barre gals and boot-camp babes, here are the three looks respectively to rock now.
Glam_Article_UnderArmour_BarreBootcamp_Slice
Barre
Combining both dance and weightlifting components, Barre Method classes call for clothing that allows the participant to stretch her limbs while providing support for movement and inversions. Four-way stretch construction comes in handy for any dance-like movement that may come up, from deep pliés to a slew of spins. Under Armour’s StudioLux gear sits close to the skin for a streamlined fit without too much compression, acting as the perfect level of low to mid support necessary for Barre. And the funky prints and cool colors are sure to make your class a fashion-forward occasion as well. As for your feet, gear up in sleek, sporty sneakers made for balance and strategic performance. Speedform® StudioLux™ shoes take you from Barre and beyond, naturally.

Barre Method, Look 1
StudioLux® Camo Leggings, available at Under Armour for $84.99
Long and Lean Tank, available at Under Armour for $34.99
Eclipse Bra, available at Under Armour for $39.99

Boot Camp
Any boot-camp woman knows that sweat is the name of the game when it comes to this intense class, so it’s key to stock up on clothes made for the workout. Under Armour focuses on super-breathable construction that wicks away sweat so we girls stay dry. Lightweight, breathable tanks and bras offer just the right amount of support so you don’t have to worry about losing coverage or comfort during squats and sit-ups. Lace up in a pair of Micro G Renegades—the only women’s sneakers that conform to your feet for extra responsiveness and support—and you’ll be boot-camp-ready.

Boot Camp, Look 1
Heatgear® Alpha Printed Shorts, available at Under Armour for $29.99

Style Scoop: Cara Delevingne Goes Bombshell for Allure, Marc by Marc Jacobs Wants You, Kimye Has Landed In Paris

By  September 24, 2014

StyleScoopSept24Are you suffering from Cara-overload yet? Hope not, because the Brit beauty appears on the cover of Allure’s October issue—and inside, she poses nude. Even if you do feel like she’s everywhere lately (which she is), consider this cover somewhat of a departure from her usual image. Cara Delevingne’s face appears buried in a bustle of blonde, bodacious curls that threaten to overpower her most coveted feature: those brows. We still see them, though.  [E! Online]

Marc by Marc Jacobs fans: get your selfie sticks going, because the brand is taking to social media, yet again, to cast its next campaign. After a successful search via Twitter and Instagram, MBMJ cast its fall 2014 campaign with a “real model” and is hoping to do the same for the next one. Desirable features include blue hair, so start bleaching now. [The Cut]

Kimye has landed in Paris. Despite fairly mild temperatures, the fashion-minded couple arrived blanketed in winter garb on Wednesday. Never one to shy away from making a statement (hello, did you witness the wedding that essentially was a mom-and-pop version of Paris Fashion Week?), Kanye West sported an intricate chevron haircut. Kim was nearly swallowed in an impossibly luxurious coat. Any guesses as to which shows the West family (and, likely, Kendall Jenner) will attend? For some reason, Givenchy, Valentino, Balmain and Chanel seem likely. [Fashionista]

Victoria Beckham will open her London flagship store—or, in her words, her “second home”—on Thursday. The Dover Street space was designed by architect Farshid Moussavi, whose past works include the Museum of Contemporary Art in Cleveland. Taking on somewhat of a concept store personality, Beckham says of the space, “For the first time, it’s my designs, my vision. This is how I feel the clothes should be showcased, how I like them to be seen. That’s been very exciting for me—to buy what I believe the customer wants.” [Women’s Wear Daily]

On Tuesday evening, Sarah Jessica Parker hosted the New York City Ballet’s opening Gala, where dancers took the stage in costumes designed by Carolina Herrera, Alexander McQueen’s Sarah Burton, Thom Browne and Mary Katrantzou. The idea behind the costumes was “for each designer to team up with a choreographer to develop unique ensembles that were both visually stunning and fully functional. [Style.com]

Style Snaps: September 24, 2014

By  September 24, 2014

SJPPostEvery 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.

As a vice chair of the New York City Ballet board, Sarah Jessica Parker‘s favorite event at Lincoln Center just might not be New York Fashion Week. Rather, the actress mused in the union of dance and fashion that took place Tuesday evening at the ballet’s annual fall gala. The event celebrated the designers—Mary Katrantzou, Thom Browne, Carolina Herrera and Alexander McQueen‘s Sarah Burton—who collaborated with choreographers on costumes for the evening’s performance, as well as the ballet itself.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Best Buy Rethinks Tech Accessories

By  September 24, 2014

BestBuyTechSo, you got your hands on the brand new iPhone 6—and no matter how sleek, smooth and sexy it looks, it definitely needs a cover. Lucky for you, Best Buy recruited three designers to create tech accessories of all sorts that don’t, well, look like an OtterBox. Nanette Lepore, Isaac Mizrahi and Anna Sui designed collections of accessories that include smartphone, tablet and laptop cases that will be available exclusively at Best Buy and BestBuy.com starting on October 5 (though you can pre-order today). Lepore’s and Sui’s proceeds from the sales of their collections will benefit the CFDA. This series comes after Best Buy recognized that their customers were after a little more personality and style when it came to dressing up their devices. With bold prints, sweet florals and sparkling finishes, you have no excuse not to protect your delicate gadgets.
