We didn't have enough room to include all the details of these great getups, but have no fear: you can find out everything you need to know below. ... Read More
House of Deréon, the fashion label created by Beyoncé’s mom, Tina, has unveiled its ads for the Autumn/Winter 2012 line. This season's looks were inspired by Beyoncé’s stage outfits from last year's Glastonbury festival--appropriately, the girl that the line represents is meant to be a free spirit having an awesome time at a music festival. Beyoncé pretty much looks amazing in everything, so we're not surprised that she ... Read More
While Wonder Woman's invisible plane isn't the most plausible concept, two Swedish women thought that creating an invisible bike helmet was a possibility, despite what naysayers told them. The pair wanted to design head protectors that weren't as bulky as regular helmets, which they likened to "mushroom caps." The result of seven years of research and crash tests is the Hövdin, which looks akin to a fashionable scarf before it inflates. That's right: ... Read More

I’m a big vintage photo collector, so I was pretty jazzed when I found a whole basket of late 1930s photos hidden away at a local antique store. This particular bunch of images all appear to be from the same group of friends and family--snapshots from summers together between 1936 through 1938. While the hot days keep getting hotter, these photos are a perfect source of inspiration on how to look cute and still stay cool. They’re also an adorable glimpse into ... Read More

British singer Paloma Faith showed that even if you're not an athlete, you can win a gold medal for style on Saturday when she carried the Olympic torch through East London. She donned six-inch fire truck red stilettos, so that she would be comfortable for the run, and a pompadour hairstyle colored similarly to the flame itself. Faith also customized the official Olympic torchbearer tracksuit into a crop top and pedal pushers. Talk about going ... Read More
In Overdressed, New York-based writer Elizabeth Cline explores the extreme decline in the cost of fashion, and the political, economic, and social implications of this change. Cline begins with a personal yet familiar anecdote: she once bought seven pairs of $7 shoes in a single haul, only to eventually throw half of them out without having worn them once. Most of us who grew up in the ’90s practice Cline’s former shopping ritual: consistently buying ... Read More
From the plush greenery right down to the dog-wolf companions, it’s no wonder the internet is buzzing with speculations that Riccardo Tisci drew inspiration from Game of Thrones for the Givenchy Fall 2012 Couture Collection. The collection is pretty incredible in and of itself even if you aren’t a fan of the show, but if you do tune in every week, this is a sure-fire way to bring a smile to your face.  Images courtesy of ...
