Oscars 2014 party best dressed

See the best Oscars 2014 party looks »

Sometimes, no matter how big a star you are, you can’t nab an invitation to the Oscars ceremony. But perhaps there’s more fun in dressing up for fun and hitting the party circuit than stuck in a theatre seat all night. Just take a look at the Oscar parties frequented by many a celeb and star—the glamorous styles didn’t stop at the red carpet. Just because you aren’t nominated for an Oscar doesn’t mean you can’t join in on the fun, right?

Taylor Swift went for some drama in a black sequined column dress with a sexy sheer back by Julien MacDonald, keeping things in line with her usual look of relaxed waves and a red pout. In the same vein as TSwift, Allison Williams upped the ante in a backless Emilia Wickstead gown in bright bubble gum pink, expertly tailored with a full skirt and a high pseudo-turtleneck. Both pretty young things kept their jewellery to a minimum going for statement earrings and blinding rings—a new engagement ring in Williams’ case.

Florence Welch vs Karlie Kloss: Who wore the long-sleeved dress best?



See these looks up close »

Last night’s gala at the American Museum of Natural History brought out much of New York City’s social set (including almost the entire cast of Saturday Night Live) but it was Florence Welch and Karlie Kloss who caught our eye, both in stunning floor-length gowns and full sleeves. With the crisp, cold weather settling in for the season, it’s no wonder that full-coverage dresses are getting so much play on the red carpet. (And what better to wear when you’re spending the evening inside an expansive—and likely drafty—museum?)

For the Florence and the Machine singer, it was all about a dreamy metallic look from the Valentino Spring 2014 collection. The sheer dress was made up of layers of tulle, adorned with a patchwork of satin panels and embroidered folkloric designs. Welch completed the look with simple grey pumps and a red box clutch. As for her hair and makeup, a milkmaid braid (very Spring 2012 Valentino, no?) and red lip tied it all together. Read more »

The 18th annual Victoria’s Secret fashion show, aka our equivalent of the Superbowl, went down in New York on Wednesday. As we’ve come to expect, it was bigger and better than ever, boasting 40 models (the largest roster ever), performances by Taylor Swift, Fall Out Boy and girl group Neon Jungle and the instalment of the $10 Million Fantasy Bra debuted by Angel Candice Swanepoel. 2013’s edition of the larger than life fashion show allowed for a crazy number of stats we’d love to see in one bejewelled infographic, but since it’s Friday, we’ll just list ‘em for you like so:

Last week, designer Michael Kors used his influence to fight the global hunger crisis on official World Hunger Day (October 16). Together with the World Food Programme, the day began with a cleverly orchestrated digital takeover of the billboards at Times Square, which streamed content that raised awareness of his Watch Hunger Stop campaign. The initiative encouraged the world to participate by spreading the word through social media, donating to the cause and purchasing a Kors-designed watch whose sale would fund 100 meals through the World Food Programme.

The designer has also been a huge advocate for God’s Love We Deliver; an organization that prepares tailored meals for people with severe illnesses in the city he calls home. Last year, a $5 million donation he made helped in the renovation of the organization’s facility, which in recognition was re-named to “The Michael Kors Building.” God’s Love We Deliver held its annual Golden Heart Awards to cap off World Food Day with stars from film, fashion, and political circles coming together to celebrate notable community contributions.

New York Fashion Week: Dispatch from the front lines of Spring 2014′s feisty first day


Jason Wu Spring 2014

Time to break out the crop tops, sunglasses and novelty sweatshirts, New York Fashion Week is here. With over 350 shows on the calendar this season there’s a lot to see, tweet and covet. Here are our favourite moments from the front lines of fashion week.

Karlie Kloss’ steals the spotlight at Jason Wu
Jason Wu’s spring collection saw the go-to FLOTUS designer take his signature sophistication in a more relaxed direction for spring. Slinky metallic halter dresses, silk crepe safari jumpsuits and soft slouchy sweaters in creamy whites, sage greens and hits of black and blue had iPhone cameras flying (but not tweeting thanks to the much-maligned lack of reception). The show was a fast-moving flurry of subtle sparkle, shine and fluid silhouettes, but time seemed to stop when Karlie Kloss stepped onto the runway. Wearing a silky pale sage gown with elaborate embroidered hem, Kloss took a deliberately slower pace than the other girls, seductively weaving her way down the catwalk. Girlfriend was equal parts fierce and feline. In fact, many show-goers mistakenly tweeted that Kloss closed the show but (fact check) she was actually the second last girl to walk. Way to steal the show, KK.

The mean streets of New York were looking might friendly/trendy on Day two of New York Fashion Week’s Spring 2014 season. Showgoers were looking comfier than ever having ditched their sky-high platforms for comfort soles and sneakers (our feet are thanking them already!). Grunge was still a major player with heaps of plaid (think sleeves, shirts, and pants), graphic tees, and ripped, worn-in denim on the streets. Some were moving away from the standard street style maximalism to a simpler kind of stylish: black and white.

Fash-Food Nation: A new batch of models, bloggers and editors is changing the way fashion and food blend together


Lookbook Cookbook

By Olivia Stren

On the inaugural episode of a web series called Elettra’s Goodness, Elettra Wiedemann, host, model and daughter of Isabella Rossellini, is making brie-stuffed puff pastries, shallot confit and fig-and-raspberry compote with actress Blake Lively. They’re stoveside at Richard Gere’s Relais & Chateau Bedford Post Inn, and, before cracking eggs and unfurling pastry sheets, Lively declares in a tone that is intended to be apologetic: “I don’t ever cook with a recipe. So it’s all a little wild.” She is, we are to understand, in her madcap, recipe-eschewing ways, the ultimate domestic goddess, able to concoct compotes off-book, fired by pure, sensuous instinct. As Lively stirs the confit, she talks about the wonders of balsamic vinegar and making butterscotch with “Elwyn,” the pastry chef at Per Se, while Wiedemann shares a fantasy of tiling her kitchen. We then learn that Lively’s sister once hand-tiled her own loo while sporting Louboutins.

As many Hollywood A-listers have proven, right now short hair is having a major moment.
