Happy Oscars Weekend! We had a gold-medal week ourselves—well, we didn’t win any statuettes, but certainly could have earned a gold star. How do you think we did over the past seven days? Do we deserve an Oscar or a Razzie?
Before you put on your Fashion Police Cap and start judging all those ladies gussied up in their finest, take a look back at some of the women who have bucked red-carpet conventions over the years, with Rachel Chambers’ List of Top-10 “F**k It” Fashions at the Oscars.
Speaking of red-carpet moments, remember J-Lo in Donatella Versace? It’s been 11 years since she barely wore the now infamous jungle dress to the Grammys. How does her look hold up?
Hattie Carnegie has become one of those “wait a minute—who is she?” kind of designers. Kristine Lloyd’s Story Behind the Style reminds us why Carnegie was one of Vogue’s leading ladies for much of the mid-2oth century.A stylish mind is a terrible thing to waste. So we’re building a Fashion Library, book reviews of fashion books every stylista should consider adding to her collection. This week’s entry is Maripol: Little Red Riding Hood.
And here’s a fun little tidbit to chew on; not quite a Story Behind the Style but more of a “It Happened on this Day In Fashion.” Three fabulous designers joined forces in 1971 for a fabulous fashion show for the public. One went on to fame and glory, one died a tragic, early death, and the other…well, we’re not quite sure what happened to her. Do you?
Clearly, we were feeling quote-of-the-day crazy this week. Or maybe we were just inspired by these famous Fashion Statements. Read what blew our skirts up from Azzedine Alaïa, Christian Lacroix, Edna Woolman Chase (my personal favorite) and Andy Warhol, who died 24 years ago on Wednesday.
The Style Swami permanently retired to an ashram, leaving us without a fashion soothsayer to do our Stylescopes. But don’t fret: We are still the only blog on the web gathering lists and images of the most fashionable people in the fashion world born on each day of the year. Find out who shares your birthday under the Stylescopes tab.
As always, we are gathering all the fashion news and bits of inspiration from the fashion blogosphere so you don’t have to. Play catch-up with all the fashion news you missed with our Daily Fashion Alerts.
