I’ve giving huge props to Lupita Nyong’o this morning (and pretty much every other morning, but this one in particular!). Last night she was the coolest chick at the MTV Movie Awards, proving the actress knows how to dress for a fun event like this just as well as she dressed for the Oscars.
Spotted! A boho-chic fringe bag on my favorite Hilton. I just analyzed the fringe benefits of Gucci’s Spring pieces, but this new sighting nearly puts them to shame. Designer Sara Battaglia showcases the best (and most fluid) use of fringe I’ve seen yet. And on Nicky, it’s my celeb bag of the day!
Neon is back and bolder than ever! I remember it first started trending around the time Wham glowed in the dark for their “Wake Me Up Before You Go Go” video, but my son believes the fluorescent hue belongs to his generation. He thinks he’s cooler than me because when he begged for a pair of blindingly yellow Nikes, I told him they were a bit bright.
I’ve started writing a monthly column for HarpersBazaar.com that I hope you’ll all be tuning in for! My first subject was spring cleaning, or rather, spring organizing (it’s a lot easier to organize than to give away beloved bags!). At the start of a new season, I store the pieces I won’t be wearing in boxes, and bring out all the others I’ve been waiting to carry.
This is absolutely insane. Dominique Ansel’s croissant-doughnut hybrid became NYC’s biggest food trend last summer, and continues to draw a huge line that stretches along the block and around the corner…
Did someone say beach? It was very likely me who uttered the magic word. I am so ready for the shore and sea after what very well has felt like the longest winter known to man (and Snob) since the Ice Age. I’m really not exaggerating – we had golf ball-sized hail strike Dallas in April!
A friend of mine recently removed her lash extensions only to find her own lashes greatly reduced in thickness and length. Rather than turn to a lash growth product like Latisse that might discolor eyelids or her blue irises, she tried a peptide-infused mascara.
Nothing can make a bigger splash in your spring wardrobe than an ethno-chic accessory, whether it’s bold in print, color, or an indescribable sense of charm. Here we play with all sorts of influences – gypsy, Roman, Grecian…the inspirations may be localized, but the appeal is global.
