Style Scoop: Vogue’s September Cover Is Officially Here, Cara Delevingne’s Latest Film, Piperlime Gets a Star-Studded Facelift

By  August 18, 2014

StyleScoopAug18The official Vogue September cover is here. We caught wind of the monumental spread last week, but we didn’t get a glimpse of the whole shebang until now. To refresh your memory, the cover shot (by Mario Testino) boasts not one but nine of today’s hottest models: Joan Smalls, Cara Delevingne, Karlie Kloss, Arizona Muse, Edie Campbell, Imaan Hammam, Fei Fei Sun, Vanessa Axente, and Andreea Diaconu. The September issue to end all September issues has arrived. [Vogue]

Cara Delevingne’s latest video venture was made in partnership with Vogue UK and Mulberry. As the face of the brand, Delevingne sits for an interview of sorts while cradling a baby lamb. Things we learned from the model this time around: she “can’t live without tweezers,” her happiest place is “my bed…or a bed, for sure,” she is “weird, trustworthy and crazy” according to herself and her motto is “stay cool, hang loose, admit nothing.” Yep, sounds about right.

Piperlime just got a facelift. The new version of the shopping site will feature an elevated assortment inspired by the chic and covetable style of the Piperlime girl. In an evolved version of the site’s Guest Editor Program, the site will feature one influencer each day on-site for 25 days. First up is Chrissy Teigen, with appearances from Shoshanna Gruss, Poppy Delevingne, Claire Vivier, Julia Engel of Gal Meets Glam, ZZ Ward and Momofuku Milk Bar’s Christina Tosi. [Glam Inbox]

Gwen Stefani is no fashion newbie. She’s had a handle on her rocker-chic style for years now, and she’s even designed her own line. Now, she’s taking on affordable footwear with her new line Gx by Gwen Stefani. Previously exclusive to ShoeDazzle, the line will expand for spring. The collection of more than 40 styles will be introduced at select Nordstrom’s exclusively for one month. It will then roll out to Amazon.com, Shopbop.com, Belk and select independents. [Women’s Wear Daily]

The late Lauren Bacall and her extraordinary wardrobe will be the subject of a retrospective exhibit at the Museum at FIT. While plans for the show were in the works before her death, Bacall wanted to ensure that it would be “high-quality—Diana Vreeland style.” The show will feature five of Bacall’s favorite designers: Norman Norell, Marc Bohan for Dior, Pierre Cardin, Yves Saint Laurent and Emanuel Ungaro.

Madonna's Birthday Bash

By  August 18, 2014


Madonna turned 56 over the weekend and, naturally, that called for an enormous, glittering party. The iconic singer celebrated her big day with her closest friends in luxurious villa in Cannes, complete with over-the-top décor and swanky twenties-themed costumes. Fashion photographer duo Mert and Marcus made an appearance, as well as Riccardo Tisci, Ceyda Balaban, Dean and Dan Caten of Dsquared and supermodel Kate Moss. Attendees broke out their best flapper dresses and smoky makeup to help Madonna celebrate at the roaring twenties bash, which was well documented on Instagram. To put it simply, Riccardo may have just gotten one-upped.

Kelly Osborne Wants To Hear Your Stories

By  August 18, 2014

KellyOsborneStoriesKelly Osborne is ready to tell her story on September 25—or, rather, sell it. The E! Network fashion police will be selling 13 head-to-toe looks for her new line, Stories…By Kelly Osborne on HSN. On the same day, she’s launching a website where fans can go to share photos and anecdotes about their experiences while wearing the new collection.

“I believe that every time you wear something, you have a story of where you wore it, whether it be good or bad,” Osborne told WWD. Among the pieces that Osborne hopes will inspire great stories are a polka-dot jumpsuit (Osborne’s favorite), a knit sweater with sequins and a Union Jack drop-waist dress. All of the fabrics have a little bit of stretch, and shoulder pads and tummy-tightening panels serve as useful reinforcements. Taylor Swift, Ciara and mom Sharon Osborne are already clamoring for pieces of the new collection.

Osborne hopes that precise sizing in a large range (0-24) will be attractive to all women. “My mission is not to be the number-one fashion designer in the world,” the new designer said. “I’m not trying to change or come up with anything that people haven’t already done. I’m just trying to make fashion fair and make good quality basics available to all women.”

Lela Rose Links Up with Lane Bryant

By  August 18, 2014


Lela Rose is partnering with Lane Bryant to make sure next summer is extra sweet for plus size fashionistas.

The designer is bringing her fun flair to a selection of easy dresses splashed with an adapted version of her signature watercolor prints in a rainbow of hues. “I really love the idea of the democratization of fashion and being able to dress different people and at different price points,” she told Women’s Wear Daily. “This is for certain an area that has been underserved for a while.”

The fresh styles will hit Lane Bryant’s site next year and select stores nationwide and will be available throughout 2015. Plus, Rose will make a few in-store appearances to spread the fuller-figure fashion love all to “to make it feel special,” said Linda Heasley, chief executive officer of Lane Bryant.

Rose is the latest designer to link up with the plus-size retailer, following in the footsteps of Sophie Theallet and Isabel Toledo. Consider the countdown clock started!

Style Scoop: Vogue’s September Cover Has 9 Models On It, Tavi Gevinson Thinks Fashion is “Goofy,” New York Magazine Changes Film History With Clothes

By  August 15, 2014

StyleScoopAug15It may not be accurate to say that things of good quality leak—but in this case, it definitely is. That’s right, a photo of Vogue’s September issue cover is swirling out there in Internet-land for all to see. And there’s actually a model on the cover! Oh, wait: there are nine. That’s right, read it and weep, people: Joan Smalls, Cara Delevingne, Karlie Kloss, Arizona Muse, Edie Campbell, Imaan Hammam, Fei Fei Sun, Vanessa Axente and Andreea Diaconu are your Vogue September cover girls. [Fashionista]

Incase you forgot, Tavi Gevinson hasn’t even been to college yet. The editor/curator and mastermind behind Rookie has taken on more roles than one might think a high school student ever could. In just 18 years, she’s made herself a fashion icon, an actress, a friend of Karl Lagerfeld and Anna Wintour and more. And now, she’s the subject of a Rolling Stone feature, in which she explains why she “left fashion”: she says, “I was like, ‘This is so goofy: We’re watching people wear clothes.” Touche, Tavi. [Rolling Stone]

For New York’s Fall Fashion Issue, photographer Bobby Doherty is throwing it back—sort of. Doherty insterted items from the season’s runways into stills from iconic movies like The Wizard of Oz, Cleopatra, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes and American Hustle. The spread is so convincing that it took a look at the accompanying explanation chart to separate the old films from the new garments. [The Cut]

Let’s face it, sports bras just aren’t the most comfortable garments in the world. We’d much rather rock a pair of Stan Smiths or a track jacket to channel “athlete” than one of those entrapments. But alas, they can be somewhat of a necessary evil—but they don’t come completely without a sort of instructions manual. Read what Julie Igarashi, vice president of global design for Nike Women’s Training and Audrey Kirkland, the New Balance brand manager of sports bras, have to say about boobs and bras.  [Fashionista]

Cara Delevingne wore a pizza suit. That is all. [The Cut]

HaileeSteinfeldpostEvery 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.

Hailee Steinfeld is making sporadic appearances on the red carpet as of late, and we can’t get enough of them. She’s truly one more reason we can’t wait for Pitch Perfect 2 to come out: after all, an impending press tour means that she must be getting ready to strut her stuff in the most stylish of wares. At such a young age, Steinfeld has a particularly sophisticated fashion sense, and we can always count on her to look appropriate but throw in a little bit of edge. Hailee, we’re ready for your close-up!



First Look: Olivia Palermo For Aquazzura (Plus a Video!)

By  August 15, 2014

Aquazzura announced a collaboration with Olivia Palermo back in July, making us ridiculously excited to shop for fall shoes. This month, the Italian shoe label is teasing the line with a behind the scenes video featuring Palermo and Aquazzura designer Edgardo Osorio, who happen to be friends.

“I think it is no secret that I love a good shoe,” Palermo said (Editor’s Note: duh). “I very much enjoyed creating a ‘survival pack’ for every occasion and women of all ages. I hope they have as much fun wearing them as we had creating them.” While we’re certain that Palermo’s dainty hands (watch the video) had no part in the actual construction of the shoes, we can appreciate the fact that her unparalleled taste was injected into their creation at some point, because they look simply lovely.OPAquazurraShoe5OPAquazurraShoe34

Barbie Makes Us Want To Shop…Still

By  August 15, 2014

BarbieCollectionsWanna go for a ride, Barbie? Jump in—we’re going shopping!

As we all experienced growing up, Barbie provided some of the best fashion inspiration we could’ve asked for. And now, things are coming full circle with Mattel Inc. giving us a chance to really dress like her. The company behind the iconic doll is teaming up with Lord & Taylor, Forever 21 and Wildfox to launch Barbie-inspired apparel and accessories collections, debuting in early September. Each collection has a different spin: while Forever 21 is channeling 90s Barbie, Wildfox is getting wild with Barbie’s actual outfits from the 80s and Lord & Taylor is taking us back to the 50s and 60s. The collections include everything from Barbie-emblazoned swimsuits to cosmetics and circular sunglasses to sleepwear. You can bet that we’ll be sporting pink like it’s no one but Barbie’s business come September, making our closets a grown-up kind of Dreamhouse.

LadyGagapostEvery 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.

This looks like the kind of outfit you’d travel in, too, right? We agree, it appears totally cozy and perfect for long flights. Okay, maybe not, but leave it to Lady Gaga to push travel attire to the limit. The singer, known for going way out of bounds on her outfit choices, reminds us with this getup that fashion is, after all, meant to be fun. She might be putting on a serious expression for the paparazzi, but we have to imagine that she broke her “poker face” while she was getting her hair done.
