Cara Santana On Style Inspo and Her Appreciation for Knee Socks

By  September 10, 2014

CaraSantanaAOYou might know Cara Santana as an up-and-coming style star—or, conversely, as John Tucker Must Die star/God, Jesse Metcalfe’s girlfriend. But either way, she’s got a thing for fashion. Appropriately, she’s surveying the Fashion Week scene to develop her taste, stay inspired and expand her wardrobe.

What kind of outfit makes you feel super feminine? Probably a dress. You can’t go wrong with a flowy, fitted dress. I think that makes me feel really girly and feminine.

What was your first awakening with fashion? My first awakening was going to private school in El Paso, Texas and feeling like, “We all look alike! I need some semblance of individuality,” so I would work the knee-high socks, penny loafers, sweaters—trying to make my uniform individual.

Like our BFF Cher Horowitz! Thinking of channeling her this Halloween? Completely—right out of Clueless. I haven’t, but maybe I’ll bring it back in October.

Who’s your style icon? I have so many. I’m constantly inspired by my friends—Ashley Madekwe, Nicole Richie, Jamie Chung [have] amazing style. I’m always inspired by those girls.

What’s your #HealthyObsessionI love to workout. I’m obsessed with Tracy Anderson. And I love green juices! [Ed note: ...as any self-respecting Los Angeles-dweller should.]

What are you looking forward to wearing for fall? I’m obsessed with the whole Public School collection—I went to their Spring [2015] show and I got to try on a bunch of fall looks and I was totally obsessed, I just want to wear public School 24/7. They’re so cool—too cool for me!

Stacey Bendet Needs A Bigger Closet…As Do We

By  September 09, 2014

StaceyBendetSP15Stacey Bendet’s closet is probably anything but average, but the way she feels when she walks into it is pretty standard, as far as we’re concerned. “I need more space!” she laments. We feel you, girl, but oh, how nice it would be to have even an apartment that’s as big as what we imagine Bendet’s closet might be…sigh.

We got a taste of that on Monday evening at her Versailles-inspired Alice +Olivia Spring 2015 presentation, which took place at The Pierre (and after seeing it, we firmly believe that we, too, need more closet space). Always dressed to the nines in her own extravagant designs, we can only imagine the racks of sparkle, print, and color that must line her (makeshift) closet.

Of course, there’s a lot of accessorizing that goes into her daily looks, as well. Bendet is certainly a risk-taker when it comes to putting outfits together (just take a look at her amazing creations on Instagram!), but there’s one thing she’ll never experiment with: scrunchies. “I hate scrunchies. [My daughter, Eloise] has them for her leotards and I’m like, ‘No, you can’t wear them!’” Our bet is that this kind of prohibition isn’t going to thwart little Eloise’s fashion education, anyway—regardless of her disdain for the 80’s staple hair accessory, her teacher is pretty phenomenal.

The Party: Polo Ralph Lauren’s 4D Holographic Spring 15 Event

The Place:  Cherry Hill Lawn on the west side of Central Park

The Deets: To celebrate the grand opening of the Polo flagship store on Fifth Avenue and present the Polo Spring 15 collection, Ralph Lauren threw a revolutionary event which fused fashion, art, and technology. In one of the most innovative events we’ve encountered, the collection was projected on a 60 foot tall water screen over Central Park. The holographic presentation of the Spring 15 collection mixed live-action movement with CG animation and included a short film featuring models visiting iconic New York locations.

“I really wanted to do something big for the new Polo Women’s brand ¬— something set in the city — that felt modern. We returned to Central Park, a place I love, and captured the spirit of Polo with a truly innovative mix of fashion and technology,” said Ralph Lauren.

Fashion’s finest gathered on the lawn, a crowd which included Anna Wintour, Steven Kolb, Kendall Jenner, Ciara, and Rachel Zoe. Mr. Lauren, who started his namesake company almost 50 years ago, was there to see a larger-than-life version of himself digitally dance across the water. A public showing of the 4D event is planned in the same location Tuesday at 9 p.m.
