JLawPostEvery 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 if we needed Jennifer Lawrence to demonstrate it  yet again, the actress proves that she’s a Dior girl through and through. At the London Film Festival, J.Law walked the red carpet (to promote her upcoming film Serena, which also stars Bradley Cooper) in a little black tuxedo-style dress. With simple makeup and easy waves in her hair, you can tell that Lawrence knows she looks incredible–and who are we to disagree?

Style Scoop: Lena Dunham Designs (& Jared Leto) Wear Caftans, Raf Simons Takes Dior to Tokyo, Karl Lagerfeld Doesn’t Really Care What You Thought About His Feminist March

By  October 14, 2014

StyleScoopOct14Lena Dunham is a writer, actress, director, producer…and now she’s a designer. Dunham lent her hand to Erin Kleinberg’s spring 2015 collection, which she titled “Après Surf Girls” (think: caftans and tie-dye). The duo worked for three months to come up with customized prints—which depict exploding sunsets and graffiti bears eating pudding. Oh, and Jared Leto has been wearing them while performing with his band, 30 Seconds to Mars. [Refinery29]

Raf Simons is taking Dior to Tokyo to show the pre-fall collection on December 11. The French house has plans to unveil a new-look boutique in Tokyo’s Omotesando district, in addition to an exhibition and photo book by Patrick Demarchelier. [Women’s Wear Daily]

Karl Lagerfeld really stirred the feminist pot with his march-themed Chanel show in Paris. Models including Cara Delevingne and Gigi Hadid stormed the runway in a way never before seen, making quite an impact, for better or for worse. And if you had a problem with it, the Kaiser doesn’t want to hear about it. “I couldn’t care less if people are for or against,” Lagerfeld said. “It’s my idea. I like the idea of feminism being something lighthearted, not a truck driver for the feminist movement.” [Fashionista]

Digital platform Appy Couple, which lets couples build wedding-centric apps and sites, tapped Carolina Herrera as its first collaborator for a Luxury Collection. Template designs based on the house’s prints and decor will be available for download today (the same day that the brand debuts its fall 2015 bridal collection). Access to the Luxury Collection costs $125. [Women’s Wear Daily]

With the recent appointment of John Galliano as creative director, Maison Martin Margiela is revealing more plans: the brand’s first accessories-only boutique in Milan. The 775-square foot (and mostly white) store stocks footwear, bags, jewelry, fragrances, eyewear, miscellaneous deco-objects and small leather goods for men and women from the fall 2014 lineup.

Crazy In Louvre: Beyoncé and Jay-Z's Trip To Paris' Renowned Art Museum

By  October 14, 2014


Beyoncé, Jay-Z and Blue Ivy Carter have been frolicking around Paris for quite some time now, making sure to cover the most important landmarks. On their list, of course, was a private tour of The Louvre, throughout which the couple took plenty of photos. They imitated a statue, smirked near the Mona Lisa and took selfies (duh) to document their visit. Click through the slideshow to see all of their artistic poses.




Style Scoop: Peter Copping Heads to Oscar de la Renta, Gemma Ward’s Ongoing Comeback, Bad Batch Of Birkins Smells Like Marijuana

By  October 13, 2014

StyleScoopOct13After much speculation, Peter Copping has been named creative director of Oscar de la Renta. The designer, who recently left Nina Ricci and worked at Marc Jacobs for 12 years prior to that, will start his new role on November 3 and show his first collection for the house at New York Fashion Week Fall 2015 in February. [Glam Chic]

She’s back: Gemma Ward appears on the cover of Sunday Style Australia’s October 2014 issue. The supermodel continues her fashion comeback (remember when she unexpectedly showed up at Prada?) after an 8-year hiatus from the industry. We can’t wait to see what else she has up her sleeve. [Design Scene]

Customers have been returning their Birkin bags, complaining that they smell of marijuana. Staff members at Hermès stores told these customers that there was a problem with a “badly tanned” batch of leather from a supplier. They claim that the tanning process somehow makes the leather smell like marijuana whenever it heats up in warm temperatures. [Page Six]

We never would’ve thought to give Snoopy his own handbag collection, but Coach took a chance on the cartoon pooch—and it totally worked! The adorable Peanuts-inspired collection is available exclusively on Colette’s website, and the full assortment of goods will hit Coach.com on Friday, October 24. Coach lovers can also explore the collection by using the new Coach app, which will be available for download on October 22. [Glam Inbox]

Editor’s Pick: Nike+ FuelBand SE Gold

Men lie, women lie. And scales do, too.

For many, including myself, a healthy obsession isn’t just about building strength, leaning out, and adopting a clean eating regime. Oftentimes, we seek validation in numbers: if the dial on that scale doesn’t move left, then those shin splint-inducing runs, butt-busting squats, and gimme-the-shakes planks—oh, those abs—seem to have been done in vain. But it isn’t all about those lbs. It’s about how you move.

Thanks to 35 athletes, two master trainers, Olympians Carmelita Jeter and David Oliver, a team of football stuntmen, a handful of professional dodgeball players, Los Angeles Lakers small forward Nick Young, and one Epic Day LA, (whew!), I found a way to stay motivated other than staring at the scale: with NikeFuel. The technology tracks movement and the energy you use to complete any given activity, and tallies metrics that show your improvement over time. The universal measure is calculated the same for every user, regardless of age or gender, and gives me reminders to get up, get out, and get something started.

I’ve worn my Nike+ FuelBand SE band faithfully—perfect for my rose gold arm party—since activating and syncing it with my iPhone during Epic Day LA. A month later, you could say that setting goals and hitting milestones has become second nature. Plus, there’s this thing called accountability: when I log on and see daily goals not met or am hit with a reminder to “win the hour,” there’s no excuse not to move.

Peter Copping Takes the Reigns at Oscar de la Renta

By  October 13, 2014

PeterCoppingConfirmed: Peter Copping will be taking the reigns at Oscar de la Renta!

The designer, who left Nina Ricci at the beginning of October, will officially start his role on November 3 and show his first collection during New York Fashion Week in February 2015. He’ll be responsible for all product categories, including ready-to-wear, accessories, bridal, and home decor. Mr. de la Renta himself seems to be pleased with the transfer of power: “Our industry has not always done the best job when it comes to changes in design leadership. My hope is that, in leading this selection and actively participating in the transition, I can ensure the right design future for our company and brand.”

Before Nina Ricci, Copping spent 12 years working with Marc Jacobs at Louis Vuitton and shares de la Renta’s feminine sensibility. He has a romantic flair to his designs that make him the logical successor to de la Renta. “We have spent a considerable time determining how best to bring a new and important creative voice into our company,” said Alex Bolen, the chief executive officer of Oscar de la Renta. “Peter will bring a fresh perspective to our brand, continuing the evolution of our business.”

What better than white lace and culottes for the 5th annual Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic? Rashida Jones gets it right in the feminine but oh-so-cool getup she sported for Saturday’s big event. With minimal accessories and natural makeup save for a vibrant red lip, Jones looks totally effortless for this chic and sporty outdoor event.

TRENDS: Soft sheath dresses with exaggerated trains, embroidered trumpet skirts, intricately detailed ball gowns, and slight twists on the traditional bridal palette with shades of mint, lavender, and blush.

She might only be 16 years old, but we can safely say that we covet all parts of Elle Fanning‘s closet. The young actress has catapulted to the top of best dressed lists recently for consistently demonstrating sophisticated, yet age-appropriate, taste on the red carpet. Whether it’s Rochas, Rodarte or otherwise, this “Young One” strikes sartorial gold again and again as she promotes her latest film.
