By  December 10, 2014

When John Galliano takes his position as creative director of Maison Martin Margiela, all eyes will certainly be on him to see what comes about. The first change will happen even before Galliano officially assumes his new role: his first show will take place in London instead of during Paris Couture Week. While everyone was kind of looking forward to the designer coming back with a bang with couture, perhaps this is his way of easing back into things. [Fashionista]

Gisele Bündchen does high-low fashion beautifully on the January 2015 cover of Vogue Australia. The Brazilan model glows in sequined Chanel and a vintage denim jacket—and sports a totally enviable bombshell blowout to boot. Check out our Faces on the Newsstand slideshow for more glamorous cover girls. [Fashion Gone Rogue]

Have you been keeping up with Love magazine’s advent calendar? Up today was model Suki Waterhouse…and a life-size Toblerone bar. Gee, we always wish we could have the chance to twerk on one of those. Not to mention date Bradley Cooper. [Love]

The Paris wax figure museum is set to unveil its new Grévin Fashion section on December 15. Wax figures of industry notables including Cara Delevingne, Ines la Fressange, Coco Rocha, and Chantal Thomass will be featured in the section. We hope there was a qualified aesthetician on-hand for the creation of Delevingne’s eyebrows. [Women’s Wear Daily]

Glam Gift Guide For The Girl Who Has Everything

By  December 10, 2014

GGGEverything

If you have a BFF that reminds you a lot of The Little Mermaid in that she’s got “gadgets and gizmos aplenty and oozits and whatsits galore,” holiday gift exchanges can be tough. If this gal pal of yours has a taste for the finer things, pick out something you know she’ll go nuts over, but would really never buy for herself. So, that fedora she’s been openly lusting after is probably the best thing you could buy her—even if it’s not a necessity. There’s no doubt that even the girl who has everything can always, like Ariel, want moooore!

Style Scoop: Julia Roberts For Givenchy, Nicole Kidman Graces ELLE, Mayhem Teams Up With Crewcuts

By  December 09, 2014

StyleScoopDec9

Well, this outfit is quite the departure from Julia RobertsPretty Woman duds. The actress is the latest face of Givenchy, and stars in the house’s spring 2015 campaign. Shot in black and white by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, Roberts sports some of the house’s signature pieces, little makeup and undone hair. The photos are meant to be “the perfect interpretation of Givenchy timeless beauty,” according to a release. [Fashionista]

Nicole Kidman graces the cover of Elle’s January 2015 edition “rocking those Dior shorts!!” Inside the glossy, the actress talks about babies, breakups and life with hubby Keith Urban. Take a look at our Faces on the Newsstand slideshow for more January 2015 covers. [ELLE]

Four-year-old Mayhem (of Fashion by Mayhem), who you might recall as the model of handmade paper reconstructions of red-carpet dresses, is collaborating with J. Crew’s Crewcuts. The collection, called Little Mayhem, will launch with nine styles of clothing, accessories and shoes. The collection, which will surely be adorable, will be available on JCrew.com and in the style guide in late spring. [Women’s Wear Daily]

Beyoncé and Kate Middleton met on Monday night at the Brooklyn Nets game, and the Internet proceeded to explode (sorry, Kim). While we’re always curious what these two powerful ladies are wearing, one might argue that that doesn’t exactly make them style icons. For the most part, it’s not their clothes that make them influential and important. Still, we’re keeping tabs on what the Duchess is wearing throughout her visit to New York, but it’s certainly something to think about… [Style.com]

The Royal Visit: What Kate Middleton Wore In New York

By  December 09, 2014

KateWilliamNets

As the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge make their New York City rounds, you better believe the world is watching their every move. William and Kate are slated to make numerous appearances and rub elbows with some of New York’s most notable figures, and their second evening in the Big Apple was no exception. The royal (and expectant!) couple sat court side at the Brooklyn Nets game, only to be introduced to Beyonce and Jay Z. Pictures were snapped and videos recorded as British royalty met American music royalty—and that’s how you really break the internet.


Style Scoop: Elie Tahari Gets Sporty, Lauren Conrad Sits Down With E!, Kendall Jenner Dances Around In Lingerie

By  December 08, 2014

StyleScoopDec8

Elie Tahari is getting in on the “athleisure” trend just in time for a sporty spring. The line has its own logo and hangtag and is completely separate from the designer’s collection line. It will be available for pre-sale at ElieTahari.com on January 5 and will hit stores in February. “It’s about feeling luxury, but dressing down,” Tahari explained. [Women’s Wear Daily]

Lauren Conrad is set to appear on E!’s Pop Innovators series on Thursday. Topics of discussion include her experience with fame and growing up in the spotlight, as well as her ever-expanding empire. The show tells the story of Conrad’s journey from the small screen to big-time designer, author and lifestyle expert. The episode airs at 8PM. [Glam Inbox]

Kendall Jenner isn’t finished with 2014 quite yet. The model  boosted her resume ten-fold this year, but she teamed up with Love magazine (again) to end the year with a bang. The 19-year-old model appears in a short holiday-themed film dancing (alongside a slimmed-down, ab-tastic Santa) to Katy Perry’s “California Girls” in a black lace Philipp Plein ensemble. It’s a little awkward, but a lot endearing, and Jenner looks stunning. [Fashionista]

Sources are saying that Carven has its eye on French designer Alexis Martial as a successor to Guillaume Henry, who exited the brand last September. As Henry heads to Nina Ricci on January 5, we’re endlessly curious about what will happen at the house he left behind. Apparently, Carven is in contract talks with Martial, who is currently creative director of Iceberg’s women’s wear line. Stay tuned for updates. [Women’s Wear Daily]

Misha Nonoo teamed up with Aldo for her first foray into footwear. Her collaborative collection (which is a part of the Aldo Rise initiative) consists of footwear and handbags, and will hit shelves in March. Nonoo went on a 12-hour designing spree to create the capsule collection, which was fueled by a lot of “delicious chocolate treats,” according to the designer. [Women’s Wear Daily]

Day in the Life: Josie Natori, Founder and CEO of The Natori Company

By  December 08, 2014

josie-natori-ditl-1
Josie Natori transformed from Wall Street wonder to luxe lingerie designer decades ago, and she hasn’t slowed down since. With three lingerie lines; ready-to-wear, home, and eyewear collections; as well as a new fragrance, Natori has firmly planted her flag amongst fashion’s biggest lifestyle gurus. Glam caught up with the design doyenne as she ran from meeting to meeting, ensured that her new collection looks fresh and fabulous, and met with fans to celebrate her latest scent.

7:00 a.m. I start every day with a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice and a coffee, and then it’s time to join my trainer for a quick workout. After putting me through my paces, my trainer leaves and I take a shower before I scroll through my emails and read Women’s Wear Daily and The New York Times. Since I work so closely with the factory (and my family) in the Philippines, my inbox tends to fill up overnight. Today, they’ve sent images of samples, fabric swatches, and a few other elements in preparation for our next collection.
8:00 a.m. Walking into my closet is always such a treat! Most days, I mix and match our own ready-to-wear and accessories with other items from my wardrobe. Today, I’m making a personal appearance at Bloomingdale’s for our new Josie fragrance, so I’ll be wearing Natori head to almost toe, as we don’t have designer shoes (yet)!
8:30 a.m. Before getting into the car to head for the office, I stop on the 4th floor of our apartment building to see my grandchildren. On school days, I drop them off on my way to the office.
9:00 a.m. I arrive at the office and it’s time for a coffee. My assistant brings me my schedule and a list of everything I need to sign off on: ads, prints for new collections, financial statements, and contracts—the list never ends. Then it’s straight into a meeting with the design team to review sketches, fabrics, trims, and color flows. We are always in search of the next great trend!
11:00 a.m. Design meeting has wrapped and I’m straight into a sales meeting! We’re reviewing full price selling, price points, and special promotional events. Also on the agenda: our new store on Elizabeth Street, and what we’ll do for the holidays.

12:30 p.m. It’s off to Bloomingdale’s where we are hosting a fragrance and lingerie event. There’s a great crowd and the models look amazing in our looks inspired by the latest Josie fragrance. I love meeting our customers. Because I take into account the lives my customers lead, it’s invaluable to spend time talking to them in the dressing room. Personal appearances are always lots of fun but exhausting at the same time because the sales team and I are trying to pull different looks together for each of the customers.
4:00 p.m. Back to the office for a quick ready-to-wear focus group with a close group of friends who happen to be tastemakers. I love hearing their feedback about silhouettes, colors, and outfits so we can adjust and improve. We bring in the design and sales team to hear some of the focus group’s points, but we will need to regroup later to review.
7:00 p.m. Finally a chance to relax a little! My husband meets me for dinner at Wajima, our favorite Japanese restaurant, and we relax over tekkamaki rolls, tempura, and kama.
9:30 p.m. Back home, I start getting ready for bed while still tied to my phone. I check in with my mother, who just turned 90 and lives in Manila. She and I talk every day. At some point, the phone goes off and I’m ready for my nightly bath to wind down. After a much needed soak, I get into bed. I believe that getting 8-9 hours of sleep a night is truly important. No screens or electronics, just my glasses, bedside lamp, and some quiet time before falling asleep and starting all over again tomorrow.

Style Scoop: Cos Opens in Soho, The Most Beautiful Girl In The World, Alexander Wang's Denim Look Book

By  December 05, 2014

StyleScoopDec5Cos officially opened its highly-anticipated Soho store Friday afternoon. H&M’s sister store finally made it stateside, giving New Yorkers an opportunity to indulge in its minimalist wares just in time for the holidays. If you haven’t gotten there yet, it’s probably something you should leave time for this weekend. [Glam Inbox]

Moscow native Kristina Pimenova has been featured in Roberto Cavalli Junior and Armani Junior campaigns, and been called “the most beautiful girl in the world.” Not bad for someone who’s only 9 years old. Pimenova’s mother runs her social media profiles (her Facebook boasts more than two million followers), and some are wondering whether she’s exploiting her model-perfect daughter. Whether or not you agree with that viewpoint, Pimenova is most certainly gorgeous. [Refinery29]

Alexander Wang has officially made his foray into denim—and the full look book, starring model Anna Ewers, is here. Each of the three styles in the collection possesses that covetable model-off-duty, relaxed look, and we can’t wait to style the crap out of these better-than-basic babies. They’ll be available for purchase on AlexanderWang.com come Monday, but Vogue‘s already got the tagline down: “Nothing comes between me and my Wangs.” [Vogue]

Maybe Kendall Jenner was onto something when she wore a tiara on a regular night out. The New York Times reports that “for some professional urbanites, the tiara is becoming the new power scrunchie, a sartorial coup de grace for the #ladyboss set.” Icons including Beyoncé, Madonna and Lady Gaga have all caught on, making us think that maybe it’s time to invest in a gilded headband of sorts. [The New York Times]

Rent the Runway has been providing us with glamorous holiday garb for quite some time now, but there’s one seasonal offering that hasn’t made it onto its roster until now: the ugly Christmas sweater. An occasion for an ugly sweater always pops up this time of year, and with these so-bad-they’re-good pieces, there’s no excuse not to partake in the cheesy fun. [ELLE]

Glam Gift Guide For The Glamorous Globetrotter

By  December 05, 2014

GlobetrotterPost

Whether she’s embarking on a long adventure or just has a few quick trips planned throughout the holiday season, a glamorous globetrotter must be at once well-organized, prepared for anything and, of course, chic. While she gathers her huge pieces of luggage and tries to decide which shoes are most important for her trip, you should be filling in her haul with things she didn’t even know she needed. Cosmetic cases, cozy socks for the plane, and evil-eye earrings are a few unnecessary-but-totally-necessary gifts she’ll be glad to have on board.
