Maybe it’s just us, but we think that a bright punch of yellow is having a moment. The color seems hard to pull off, but judging by the examples we’ve collected here, it can add that perfect touch that’s somehow both perky and edgy to any outfit or design. Jessica Szor wore a Suno jacket […]
Facial Lines and Pores Allowed in French Vogue
Do you see what we see? Those appear to be perfectly normal lines on Robin Wright’s forehead in this ad for Gerard Darel scanned from French Vogue’s September issue. There are also a few around her eyes. Gasp! Presumably such natural phenomena are permissible in French magazines. You can’t deny she looks gorgeous, despite (or […]
Frida Kahlo + Robin Hood = Lorick Fall 2010 RTW
Minimalism has been called out as a trend for fall. But Lorick’s ready-to-wear fall collection features rich, luxurious fabrics and some statement making hair decorations that we’ve fallen in love with.

And you know when […]
Erin Wasson: Gay Men Will Never Really Understand Women
Erin Wasson wants her next tattoo there. I interviewed Erin Wasson recently for Refinery29.com, the model-slash-designer who styled Alexander Wang’s Spring 2008 show, recently ended a stint designing clothes for RVCA and even more recently launched her own line of jewelry called Low Luv (which is why I was interviewing her for R29). She had […]
The Kind of Long Tail We Can Get Behind
Tails were originally created to facilitate horseback riding. The Red Coats wore them in the 18th century, American soldiers wore them during the War of 1812, and Charlie Chaplin adorably favored tails in the early 20th century. Men still wear them on fancy schmancy occasions, but we like them much better as reimagined by Alexander […]
Barlow Debuts Fall 2010 Line at Azalea in San Francisco
Alice Barlow isn’t like other muses. Not that we know a great many, but she is decidedly down to earth for a girl who is the inspiration and namesake of clothing line Barlow. “It makes me feel really conceited,” she told us on Saturday at Azalea in San Francisco’s Hayes Valley, where she hosted a […]
