A flirty crop top that doesn’t show too much skin

I typically avoid big, billowy blouses since they make me look like I have a baby bump, but I made an exception to this one. Since it’s cropped, with sweet little ties at the shoulder, it adds a flirty touch to an otherwise shapeless piece. It has a sort of Almost Famous vibe when paired with high-waisted jeans and a straw bag, and makes for an ideal piece for hot summer afternoons.

Gigi Hadid on Why Rihanna Is Her Style Inspiration and Where She Draws the Line on Social Media

Source

Gigi Hadid will post the occasional Zayn Malik kissing shot on her Instagram. She’ll share baby photos, selfies, and photos of her vacations. But Hadid is admittedly less open on her social media accounts than she was when she first started: “I’ve kind of learned where people start to take advantage of things,” Hadid told ELLE.com in an interview yesterday at the launch of her Vogue Eyewear line. “Because in the very beginning, I was a lot more trustworthy of things, and I feel like I was a lot more freely able to post.”

 

“You kind of learn that there has to be a difference between how private you wanna be and how private people force you to be. So I try and be as open as I can without revealing too much of a certain situation, but you kind of just have to take it depending on the post and depending where you are.”

 

Before her Vogue Eyewear party last night, Hadid spoke to ELLE.com and a small group of reporters about how her first eyewear capsule collection—which includes three sunglasses and one pair of optics she designed—is really just all the glasses she couldn’t find. “I just wanted something that was timeless and shapes that I could wear everyday,” she said.

 

She teamed up with Vogue Eyewear because “they were able to produce sunglasses that were the quality I wanted,” she explained. “I’m not just gonna put out a sunglass line with whoever with whatever shape and whatever color and hope it works and put my name on it just for the money. If they weren’t sunglasses that I was gonna love and wear and be able to put myself behind, then I wouldn’t have done it. “

 Here, Hadid talked to ELLE.com about the Vogue Eyewear campaign she stars in, what dishes she cooks for her friends (and her boyfriend, Zayn Malik), and how Rihanna fuels Hadid’s street style streak.
 

 

During your Vogue Eyewear campaign, you eat cake, bake, and ride horses. Do you have any fun behind-the-scenes stories from being on set?

Well, what I was really grateful about this shoot is that it’s all things that I like to do, so that makes the day go very fast and it’s very fun. Um, a fun story: [photographers] Mert [Alas] and Marcus [Piggott] got stuck in traffic and so the horse was already there and I rode the horse for like 45 minutes before they even got there [laughs], just around the backyard by myself. So that was fun. I was happy to finish hair and makeup early that day.

 

So what’s your best baking dish you make when you’re off-duty?

My favorite thing is to invite my friends over and ask them each to pick, like someone will pick like a dinner dish, someone will pick a dessert dish, and I really like making things that I’ve never made before and just seeing if I can do it. And last week I made a banoffee pie, which is a banana, toffee whip cream pie, and it actually turned out really good. I had never had one before, but my friend really wanted one so I made it for her and it was really good. That’s probably my newest favorite dessert to make.

 

And your best standard dish?

It’s hard to say. I don’t know! I feel like people have different favorites that I make. I’m not sure! I love making corndogs and I make jalapeños in the batter, and it’s really good. That’s my favorite.

Let’s talk style. What’s the best piece of fashion advice you’ve been given?

Carine Roitfeld once told me, “If you don’t know what to wear to a party, wear jeans, a T-shirt, and heels, [and] call it a night,” It’s made a lot of my nights easier.

And whose street style inspires you?

So many people. I mean, Rihanna, like every day. I can’t say that I could pull off the same things that Rihanna could, but she makes me excited about getting dressed the next day, I feel like, which is inspiring, so yeah.

Kate Middleton Channels Audrey Hepburn’s ‘My Fair Lady’ In White Lace At The Royal Ascot

Source

Kate Middleton has stunned in an Alexander McQueen dress at the Royal Ascot and her outfit looked oddly familiar.

If you’re currently facing the dilemma of what to wear to a wedding this summer and battling concerns of sweat patches, swollen ankles and whether a fascinator could be used as a shield for your untamed frizzy hair in the unexpected British humidity, look no further for your formal fashion inspiration than Kate Middleton.

Yesterday, the 35-year-old Duchess looked stunning in a white lace dress by Alexander McQueen, paired with a matching chapeau adorned with beaded flowers, and pearl drop earrings – similar to the bespoke pair her sister Pippa wore at her wedding to hedge fund financier James Matthews last month.

Kate’s dress featured a high neckline, sheer sleeves, a belted waist, and a bell-shirt that skimmed just below the knee.

Keeping her make-up simple, with a slick of nude pink lipstick and a smokey brown eye, the mother-of-two teased her hair into a low bun at the nape of her neck.

The Royal’s dress was reminiscent of Audrey Hepburn’s high-neck white dress in the 1964 film, My Fair Lady.

 Those with an eye for fashion will remember that Kate wore a smilier lace dress to the Royal Ascot last year – an off-white Dolce & Gabbana long-sleeved number paired with an off-white hat, and pearl drop earrings.

I mean, if it ain’t broke…

However, Kate wasn’t the only royal who dressed up for the occasion, as Prince William looked quite the gentleman in his top hat, umbrella and coattails.

Best Looks: Emma Watson

Emma Watson wore the princess dress version of your favorite sundress to her Paris movie premiere.

Emma Watson is a young lady of many accomplishments. She’s been cast as a Disney princess (in Beauty and the Beast, naturally), graduated from an Ivy League school, and has launched a global gender equality movement for the United Nations with HeforShe. And sartorially she’s just as prolific, wearing suits, gowns, and LBDs perfectly. No wonder she was recently named the world’s most outstanding woman. See all her best looks.

It’s a sustainable fashion marathon, full of black jumpsuits, bejeweled dresses, and more.

Before Emma Watson began her Beauty and the Beast press tour, she and her stylist sent designers a Power Point, according toVanity Fair, inquiring how their garments “are produced, what their impact is on the environment, and the moral reason why Watson should wear one on the red carpet.” Watson’s goal was to create a marathon press tour of entirely eco-friendly fashion. This is the result—a lot of color, variety, and plenty of the requisite Disney princess dresses.

LOOK INSIDE KARLIE KLOSS’S PERSONAL COUTURE CLOSET

Source

She takes a very fashionable trip down memory lane.

Karlie Kloss has walked the runways for the best of the best fashion houses—so much so that she has now built up an enviable personal collection of one-off pieces and fresh off-the-runway gowns.

Lucky for us, Kloss is quite a keen YouTuber and documented a trip back to her family home to let us watch her rummage through her ‘kloset’ as she takes a very fashionable trip down memory lane.

You can see the full film here, but scroll down if you want to know our favourite moments from the clip:

What we learned from Karlie Kloss:

A few fun facts about Kloss were revealed in the video—with the model explaining that her parents sold their home and moved from St Louis to New York to support their daughter in her modelling career. Though this probably seemed like a risky move to take at the time, the risk certainly paid off.

Kloss’ first purchase, from her very first pay check, was a Land Rover car and she may or may not have had her first kiss in that car too.

The supermodel also admitted that she did a lot of runway shows ‘for trade’, meaning that she was paid in clothes rather than money. She reckons some of her best pieces have been gathered this way.

Her best fashion pieces were quite remarkable and we are incredibly envious that she just had these items lying around at her mum’s house, when we would either wear them every day or have them framed. Here are our top picks from her collection:

  1. Alexander McQueen off-the-runway original from his last collection
  2. Her Oscar De La Renta gown that she wore to the Met Gala in 2014
A Rodarte hand knitted jumper that she referred to as a “treasure”

Kloss says at the end of the video that she found the whole spring clean of her closet rather therapeutic—and probably immensely useful now she has packed that Rodarte jumper to bring to her actual everyday wardrobe!

Audrey Hepburn’s Clothes Are Going Up for Auction

Source

Good news for devoted Audrey Hepburn fans: a collection of the beloved star’s clothes and personal items will go up for sale for the first time later this year.

Christie’s has confirmed that a flagship auction, featuring pieces from Hepburn’s extensive personal wardrobe, will take place in London this September, 24 years after her death.

Items in the sale, which have remained in the ownership of Hepburn’s family, are estimated to start at £100 ($126.64) and reach up £80,000 ($101,312). Key fashion pieces include a Burberry trench coat, with an estimated price tag of £6,000-8,000 ($7,598.40-10,131.20), a selection of her ballet pumps and a blue satin cocktail dress by Hubert de Givenchy, one of Hepburn’s favorite designers.

Hepburn’s personal archive of photographs will also be sold alongside film memorabilia. Hepburn was known to use turquoise ink to make notes about her characters and an annotated script from Breakfast at Tiffany’s is predicted to fetch £60,000-80,000 ($75,984-101,312).

For her family, the sale provides an opportunity to “pass on to future generations”.

“In an effort to include all who partake in these feelings for her, we have selected a collection of items to share with her ever-growing base of admirers,” Hepburn’s sons Luca Dotti and Sean Hepburn Ferrer commented. “We are honored to entrust Christie’s with this sale and it is with great joy that we wish to share her spirit, through this sale, and its related previews, with all who have enjoyed her films, her sense of style and followed her humanitarian legacy.”

As one of the world’s most admired fashion icons, it’s likely the one-of-a-kind sale will create quite a buzz at the auction house. In December 2006, a black satin evening gown designed by Givenchy for Hepburn’s most famous character, Holly Golightly, was sold by Christie’s for £456,200 ($577,868.54). The dress was expected to reach no more than £70,000 ($88,711).

The auction will take place at Christie’s King Street headquarters on September 27, alongside an online sale which will be open for bidding from September 19 until October 3. The collection will be on view to the public in an exhibition at Christie’s from September 23.

Meet the Young Roses: The Next Generation of Socially Conscious Socialites

From Jayne Wrightsman to Lauren Santo Domingo, Vogue has always celebrated the brightest lights of philanthropy and society. The new generation, however, is not just ineffably stylish but self-aware, socially conscious—and sometimes even self-made. Meet the young roses.

Cécile Winckler

“Artists have to remain open and independent,” explains Winckler, 31, a New Yorker by way of Paris and her native Belgium. “When artists are tied down to a job, they lose their vision.” It’s a sentiment that led Winckler, whose circle encompasses everyone from actor and artist India Salvor Menuez to Charlotte Casiraghi, to cofound Unemployed, a large-format magazine that she coedits with her partner, Sophie Tabet. Unemployed publishes the work that her artist and fashion-photographer friends are most passionate about but which is—so far, at least—of little commercial value. Think of it as a nonprofit gallery without the gallery, and Winckler a kind of postmodern patron of the arts. “It’s a bridge between art and fashion,” she says. “We create something you could put on your wall.” In most cases, Winckler’s support is what allows the photographers to realize their projects at all. Recently she has taken Pierre-Ange Carlotti to the beaches of Marseilles, Harley Weir to Beirut, and Oliver Hadlee Pearch to Savannah, Georgia. And last fall, François Pragnère shot a photo essay at the Burgundy country house that belongs to Winckler’s family. “We produce everything together—it’s a whole community, an ecosystem,” she says. So much for not having a job. —Mark Guiducci

Sall, a striking 27-year-old Senegalese-American academic—she’s currently a Eugene Lang College lecturer at Manhattan’s New School—has recently lent her face to Kenzo x H&M and J.Crew campaigns. Though her growing exposure in the social and fashion worlds would seem to prove otherwise, her primary focus these days is SUNU Journal, a print and online outlet centered on ideas of African cultural expression.

Ahead of its launch, Sall, a former U.N. intern with a master’s in human-rights studies from Columbia, has already enticed more than 52,000 would-be readers with SUNU’s social-media feed full of references to classic African cinema and rare portraiture from the continent. “I want to create a space where young people—emerging thinkers, voices, artists—can disseminate their work,” she says. —Marjon Carlos

Nieves Zuberbühler

During one week in March, Zuberbühler, 29, flew back and forth from New York to southern Florida twice: first for the Okeechobee Music & Arts Festival, organized by her husband, Julio Santo Domingo, and then again to a retirement community in nearby Delray Beach to interview the last surviving Nuremberg prosecutor for her job as a 60 Minutes associate producer. On both trips, the Emmy Award–winning Argentine’s wardrobe was surprisingly similar: Frame jeans and Converse sneakers (which at Okeechobee were paired with a favorite vintage Rolling Stones tee and feather earrings trawled from a street fair in Punta del Este).

The attire for Zuberbühler’s fantastical Halloween wedding, however, was decidedly less casual. For that occasion—with 900 guests in attendance—she called on friend Brandon Maxwell to create a Pre-Raphaelite–inspired satin-faced chiffon confection with a ten-foot train that the designer sheared off after the church ceremony, and then cut shorter still for the early-morning after-party. In lieu of a registry, she and her husband asked for donations to two South American charities, the ALAS foundation and the Argentinean school Las Lomas Oral. But Zuberbühler’s philanthropic inclinations extend far beyond the placement at her gala table: During 60 Minutes’ summer hiatus, she plans to volunteer with the International Rescue Committee in a U.S. refugee-resettlement center and also one in either the Middle East or East Africa. “I’ve been trying to contribute in any way I can,” she says. “I just really feel like I need to do this.” —Chloe Malle
