Style Scoop: US Equestrians Get Decked in Hermès, VMAs Attendees Threw It Back, Vogue Gets an Online Facelift


The US Equestrian Federation is getting a pretty luxe deal—Hermès apparel and accessories for all USEF teams. The house will dress riders and their horses with everything including saddle pads, shadbellies, breeches and waterproof outerwear. The technical riding apparel and gear made its debut at the World Equestrian Games, which will begin September 7 in Normandy, France. Luckily, it’ll also be available at Hermès boutiques in New York City and Beverly Hills for die-hard Hermès fans. [Women’s Wear Daily]

So, the VMAs were filled with fashion good and bad, but we’re focused on the amount of nostalgia that this year’s show provided. There was Katy Perry and Riff Raff paying homage to Britney and Justin circa 2001, and even an interpretation of Rose McGowan’s barely there chain dress from 1998. While many of these looks gave us a good laugh, they may just be better as MTV VMA history. [Fashionista]

Vogue might be the authority on fashion and style, but the same doesn’t necessarily go for The magazine is expected to unveil a revamped website on Wednesday that will better “translate its print sensibility to the openness and speed of online journalism,” according to the New York Times. Sally Singer, Vogue’s creative director for digital, describes a broader and more interactive site that doesn’t simple replicate the magazine: instead, “a new Vogue under the auspices of Vogue.” [NYTimes]

Guests of Trump SoHo will be chauffeured to the Chloé Greene Street boutique, where they will meet with a Chloé stylist for a consultation.

Derek Lam collaborated with Mark Cross to create a sleek, structured tote. The bag has gold hardware and comes in two sizes (the small one retails for $2,495 and the large for $3,495) and three colors (Fall Green, Rust and Black). It’ll be hitting stores just as New York Fashion Week kicks off, and we’re guessing that in the spirit of things, it’ll do quite well among the fashion set. Get yours at Derek Lam stores and Barneys New York. [Glam Inbox]
