    Ashley Green Twilight

    Kristen Stewart and Ashley Greene, the starlets of Twilight’s “Breaking Dawn,” are being touted as striking a fierce fashion face-off against each other at the movie’s recent premiere and while we think that’s just a bunch of Hollywood hype for you, we have to admit that in our books, Stewart’s ensemble(and date!) clearly make her the winner. For one, Greene’s(above & below) strapless scarlet floor-length Donna Karan number with a swirling lace insert effect ages the young actress as its…

  • London Fashion Visits NY- The Best of London S/S 2012 at The London Show Rooms

    Holly Fulton

    Naveed and I popped by The London Show Rooms in New York last week to take a close-up and intimate look at some of London’s brightest designers. As always, we were mesmerized with the up close privilege of ogling at some incredible construction, innovative design, and left with a wish list days long from the generous talent of these young designers from “across the pond.”   I guessed right on wanting to see  Cate Blanchette wear Felicity Brown, as, ironically, she’s…

    Artist Lisette Model

    On a recent trawl through Chelsea, New York’s art gallery packed westside neighborhood, came the discovery of Bruce Silverstein Gallery’s “Reflections: The Expressionist Origins of Lisette Model,” an inspiring visual retrospective featuring an edited collection of the late artist’s work.

  • Instant Update- Cover up in the Best Coats of the Season

    Hermes Fall 2012

    For all their dualities, from the practical set to the sophisticated sort, the winter coat is one considerate, sartorial godsend…especially as New York City is getting its first slam of cold weather. Keeping in mind the functionality one needs from outerwear, we understand that winter weather combat gear’s performance is more important when determining what one wears than judging by looks alone. And since one wears their coats consecutively more over winter months than any item of clothing, careful consideration on the…

  • Fashion How-To’s -Short Heels That Aren’t Short On Style

    Rochas Slingbacks Fall 2011

    Think of this as your “How To Wear Low Heels” tip sheet… Blame it on the abundance of too-high heels, walking behind girls fumbling in them, or our admiration for the cool retro sophistication that Rochas has been championing as of late, but we are beginning to rethink the short heel and their recent wearable reemergence on the scene.

  • “The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier” Comes to Dallas this November

    Emil Larsson_Body corset

    Besides the now iconic cone bra’s he outfitted Madonna for in the early 90’s, the highly controversial Hasidic-inspired collection for Fall 1993 and the many in-your-face ethnic influenced collections ripe with rigorous tailoring that have followed, fashion’s original enfant terrible, Jean Paul Gaultier, will forever be a designer who’s done much more than that in our books. Long before today’s mega names associated with showmanship like John Galliano and Alexander McQueen, there was Gaultier.
