Lady Gaga x Balmain

Lady Gaga x Balmain: Cue the Applause

Life is one big costume change for Lady Gaga. The singer stepped out yesterday in not one, but two incredible Balmain F/W 2013 outfits while promoting her new single “Applause.” In fact, the purple skirticon (on NET-A-PORTER for $3,163) was her third outfit of the day! I guess when you’re known for wearing meat dresses and lobster heels, you have to keep everyone guessing.

Fall’s Best Pants

Fall’s Best Pants: Seeing Spots

Wondering what to wear with fall’s must-have leather jackets? I say embrace your animal instincts with a pair of leopard-print pants. We’ve been obsessing over the trend on accessories, and it’s just as chic on slacks. Slouchy, fitted, Frugal…there are plenty of the options.

Now the pop diva has stripped down entirely for the designer’s “Protect the Skin You’re In” campaign. And she’s not the first celeb to have done it…

I love the look of full skirts worn with crop tops. It’s the perfect mix of retro and modern, of ladylike and sexy.

Celeb Trend: White Blazers

Summer isn’t just the time to break out the white jeans – it’s time to break out the white blazers, too! From purely pale creations to those with trim to leather accented jackets, there’s a style for every Snob. Rihanna made sure to follow her own advice and shine bright like a diamond by pining […]

Five Essential Summer Dresses: The Long and Short of It

Shop smart this summer. As much as we want to buy every cute dress we try on (and god knows there’s an unlimited supply of those), it’s best for your budget to remember that you need a little something of everything. Maxis like this printed Nanette Lepore ($226) are great for your average day. See […]
