A DIY Taylor Swift Halloween Costume

After experiencing Taylor Swift’s new dark look, I couldn’t help but reflect on all the ways I could turn her more signature style in to a hilarious Halloween costume. This look is a reflection of her 1989 era. But before we get own to basics, here’s just a bit of fun. Enjoy!

Frill Seekers

This summer, think cotton candy pink, snow cone stained lips and greased lightening. Because the only thing more important than carnival food is the way your skirt falls across the Ferris wheel seat.

Best Looks From the 70th Annual Cannes Film Festival

With 60 meters of red carpet to cover over two weeks, the Cannes Film Festival is a glamorous showcase unlike any other. It’s a favorite annual event of mine, right up there next to the Met Gala and the Academy Awards. The Festival de Cannes was founded in 1946 and is currently in its 70th season. As is tradition, it was held at the Palais des Festivals et des Congres.

Festivals like this one, that are steep in tradition and prestige create a vacuum for business within the film industry. It’s the perfect trade agreement: Designers sell their work on A-list stars who are on the carpet to promote their films with their film executives who are there to sell distribution agreements for said films and hopefully secure credit for future projects, while their sponsors gain world-wide exposure. Everyone gets a piece of the pie. Read More

Best Looks From the 2017 Met Gala

Whether the fashion industry had a sudden burst of adrenaline or the “avant-garde” theme opened up the floodgates of innovation, fashion’s favorite designers have made a stunning comeback from the 2016 Met Gala; the chrome robot army of yesteryear has blossomed into a chic flock of risk-takers. The challenge? Out-innovate Rei Kawakubo of Comme des Garçons—the first living designer to be honored by the The Costume Institute in a monographic show since Yves Saint Laurent in 1983, according to an Institute press release.

God Save The 90s

Upon the return of the choker earlier this year, one thing became abundantly clear—the 90’s had come full circle. Just when you thought some things would never be cool again, they start popping up in Vogue. Take mom jeans, bucket hats, or wearing chunky high heels over calf-high dress socks. But then, maybe we were too busy trying to dress for our given decade to notice that they were always cool. Granted, there are a few trends that we wish would just stay away, like manpris, terry cloth, bike shorts and butterfly clips on adult heads (never again). Inspired by the best looks of the decade and the style icons that made them timeless, this season we’re pairing our patched denim and nerdy graphic tees with our favorite fall staples. While you’re fishing the grunge out of your closet, make sure to call your mom and apologize for telling her that her mom jeans weren’t cool. Read More

The Misguided Robot Army & The Few That Got It Right at the 2016 Met Gala

I have a thing for themes—events, birthdays, dinner parties, holidays, etc. But, themes are only fun if everyone sticks to them. No one wants to be the only person in costume at a Halloween party. The same goes for the Met Gala, or Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Held on May 2 in New York City and co-chaired by Anna Wintour, Taylor Swift, Idris Elba, and Apple’s Chief Design Officer Jonathan Ive, was themed, “Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology.”

When the cameras started flashing on the first Monday in May, a couture silver robot army charged the red carpet, and we were all a little confused. Fashion and celebrity culture fanatics around the world quickly realized either no one knew what Manus or Machina meant, or no one cared to dress in theme. I saw parts of Madonna I never wanted to see. Taylor Swift looked like Jenny Humphrey at prom. The event was one giant missed opportunity. I for one, expected more from Lady Gaga.

To Chop or Not to Chop?

On the coffee table in front of me, a peroxide blonde model stares up from of latest issue of Short Hair as if she might leap up from the glossy book, throw back her Megyn Kelly cut with a hearty laugh and say, “You’re really going to cut off five inches? Your boyfriend is going to hate it.” Read More
