Mark our words: the wardrobe from Fox’s Scream Queens is to die for. In this campy whodunit, a pack of sorority sisters (the majority named Chanel) scheme, plot, and well, scream in over-the-top looks – and we’re obsessed with them all. Want to score an A+ in fierce fashion like these Kappa Kappas? Just follow their style rules.

The Scream Queens girls in over-the-top outfits

Wear (Faux) Fur
Take a page from Chanel No. 1’s book and mark your queen-bee status with a candy-colored topper. For a mod spin, pair it with a miniskirt and high-neck blouse.

Mix Pastels & Metallics
Ditch the rest of the rainbow. All you need are pastels and metallics to achieve this super-femme look. 

Accessorize with Abandon
Remember the old adage “less is more”? It doesn’t apply here. Do like the girls and pile on earmuffs, sparkling headpieces, and stare-at-me jewels.

Dress to kill. Our Get the Look: Style Inspired by Scream Queens Boutique opens Saturday, October 3, at 11AM ET.

Today marks the kickoff of Breast Cancer Awareness Month – a whole 31 days dedicated to opening a dialogue about the disease. To help spread the word, we caught up with Elisha Daniels, survivor, author, style guru, and Boston spokesperson for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF).

What’s your advice to women in terms of early detection and breast cancer awareness?
My advice to people is – if you can – get a mammogram at age 35. It’s a very scary thing, but early detection saves lives. Also, know your family history.

How did you get involved with the Breast Cancer Research Foundation?
I helped start the Boston chapter. I’ve been doing it for 9 years and we’ve raised over $8 million in Boston alone. Every $250,000 funds a researcher for a year. Research is really the key to finding a cure.

What motivated you to write your book, You Can Do This! Surviving Breast Cancer Without Losing Your Sanity or Your Style, and what do you hope readers get out of it?
I was motivated to write the book after going through 6 months of chemo and radiation. I noticed that some of the women in the waiting room seemed so hopeless. I felt that part of the recovery from cancer, of any kind, is maintaining a positive attitude, so I wanted to inspire people. I started writing about my journey and how others can get through the same thing – without losing their style, or their sanity.

Why is style so important to you?
It’s in my DNA. I guess I’ve always just known that style is an important part of my life and it comes very naturally to me. I love working with clients the most. There’s something really exciting about making somebody’s eyes light up and watching them feel beautiful.

As a personal stylist, what are your favorite fashion tips?
Invest in good basics, like a pair of black trousers, a couple of white shirts, and a black cardigan. Then you can add to them. A trench coat is a must. Oh, and don’t be afraid to mix navy and black. It’s so chic and fabulous and you can wear it every single season.

Who are your style icons – past and present?
Audrey Hepburn, of course. Also Doris Day – if you ever need style inspiration, watch her movies. As for present, Olivia Palermo always looks stunning. And Tamron Hall from TODAY wears the most beautiful clothes.

What do you never leave the house without?
Earrings. Lipstick. I have 7 lipsticks in my bag right now!

Want to join Elisha Daniels and help #BeTheEnd of breast cancer? Visit for information on how to get involved.

And swing by our The Power of Pink: Shop to Support Breast Cancer Research Boutique, which opens Thursday, October 1, at 3PM ET. Rue La La will donate 10% of all net sales to the BCRF.

When we heard that George Clooney, a.k.a. Hollywood’s most infamous bachelor, had, in fact, put a ring on it, we knew his wife-to-be must have some serious style. And over the past year Amal Clooney, a renowned international human rights lawyer, has proven that she can hold her own in the courtroom and on the red carpet. To celebrate the couple’s first wedding anniversary, were reminiscing about some of their best sartorial moments.

George & Amal Clooney's Civil Ceremony

Tying the Knot in Style
Amal sported a white flowing jumpsuit with navy trim and a chic matching floppy hat at their civil ceremony in Venice, Italygiving women everywhere permission to rock an unconventional wedding look. Playing the perfect leading man, George went for a classic grey suit that complemented (and didn’t upstage) his blushing bride.

George & Amal Clooney Met Gala 2015

Best Dressed at the Met Gala
This year’s “China: Through the Looking Glass” theme meant white tie for the guys and Asia-inspired attire for the ladies. While George was ever the dapper gentleman in his coat and tails, Amal’s controversial choice to wear a gown by headline-making designer John Galliano put her on the fashion industry’s radar – Anna Wintour herself even showed up to the fitting.

Amal Clooney Style

Not Your Average Office Wear
While George’s professional wardrobe depends on the costume for his next role, Amal’s highly respected legal position doesn’t necessarily mean a boring 9-to-5 closet. Coming from a lunch meeting, she opted for a bold Gucci top balanced by a neutral-hued midi skirt for a work look that was equal parts fun and polished.

Now it’s your turn in the spotlight. Take a cue from the dynamic duo and shop our Meet the Clooneys: Style Inspired by Amal & George Boutique, which opens Sunday, September 27, at 11AM ET.

Scandal. Is. Back. And if you’re anything like us, you’re more than ready for some Mr. President moments and an abundance of Olivia Pope power ensembles. So cue up the DVR and grab a legal pad. We’re about to school you on five style lessons we learned from the ultimate boss lady.Olivia Pope Style on Scandal

Invest in Separates
Olivia’s on-the-go look? Simple layers. Think textured jackets paired with feminine blouses.

Less Is More
This political fixer keeps her accessories simple. Follow her lead – stick to understated jewelry and neutral, forever handbags.

Make a Statement
When it comes to fall style, it’s what’s on the outside that counts. Do your best Olivia and top your tailored power pieces with a statement coat.

White Is Always in Season
That Labor Day rule? Break it. Ms. Pope defies the naysayers and wears white year-round. Go all out with a head-to-toe look.

Loungewear Can Be Luxe
No, we don’t mean college sweats. We’re talking cashmere, cashmere, cashmere. Accessorize your comfy dressing like Olivia with a glass of red wine and popcorn.

In the fashion world, the start of September is basically like New Year’s for your closet – hello, fresh start. So take a cue from the Fall 2015 runways and give these five new looks a try. No resolutions necessary.

White Ruffle Shirt RunwayCafé Society
Autumn is serving up old-world glamour. From timeless pearls to ladylike tops, when it comes to this look, the more feminine, the better.

Burberry Prorsum Fall 2015 RunwayThat 70s Show
The runways have spoken: Boho details are back in the groove. All in? Wear a far-out print from head to toe. Or start small with a suede fringe handbag.

Grey Crocodile BagUp in Smoke
This season’s head-to-toe grey hues are rich in texture and anything but bland. Mix a sleek leather handbag with a chunky knit sweater for head-turning contrast.

Michael Kors 2015 RunwayHeritage Days
A little rustic and a lot classic. Worn alone or all at once, plaid, tweed, and leather make countryside chic look good.

Red Ruffle Dress RunwayLatin Spice
It takes two to tango. Pair ruffles and sultry cutouts for a fiery look that sends your wardrobe south of the equator.

Found your new look? Grab all the essentials in our Rue’s Fall Checklist: This Season’s Top 5 Trends Boutique, which opens Wednesday, September 23, at 3PM ET.

Behind (almost) every A-list celebrity, there’s an A-list stylist who scours the runways for the most coveted pieces. Case in point: every single Rachael Zoe client. So while we patiently await TV’s biggest night, we’re taking a look back at some of 2014’s best dressed – and hoping for repeat greatness.

Allison Williams in Giambattista Valli Couture Emmys 2014The Unconventional Ball Gown
The chicest princess we’ve ever seen? Fact. The Girls starlet owned the red carpet in Giambattista Valli Couture. Simple, yet full of impact (that colorblocked bodice!), this pick won her fashion darling of the evening.

Claire Danes in Givenchy Emmys 2014The It-Girl Outfit
First worn in white by Kim Kardashian at her wedding, this Givenchy dress made headlines for the second time when the Homeland actress donned it. True, she doesn’t need any further accolades, but we give her major props for making the ensemble, complete with a beaded dragonfly collar and lips to match, all her own.

Jessica Paré in LANVIN Emmys 2014The Old Hollywood 2.0 Dress
Sure, we’re already missing Mad Men, but we’re excited to see what’s next for the former Mrs. Don Draper. With an easy Old Hollywood vibe, her LANVIN version of the classic LBD was to D.I.E. for. And her sculptural necklace? The icing on the cake.

Matt Bomer in Tuxedo Emmys 2014The Classic Tux
A (fashion) curveball can be refreshing, but we’re always onboard for the traditional. This Chuck actor proves all you need is a fresh cut, shined shoes, and a little black and white to turn heads.

Ready to work the step-and-repeat? Our Get the Look: Style as Seen on the Red Carpet and Awards-Show Style for Men: Win Best Dressed Boutiques open Sunday, September 20, at 11AM ET.

With Lincoln Center a ghost of NYFW past, designers spent the past seven days showcasing their SS16 collections across the city. And the clothes weren’t the only thing wowing attendees – the new spaces were just as impressive. Here’s a peek at some of our fave moments.Givenchy NYFW 2016Givenchy
Nearly 1,000 guests filled Pier 26 as Givenchy premiered in the Big Apple (instead of Paris) for the first time ever. Hymns and prayers set the tone of the black-and-white-themed show, which fell on September 11 and graciously honored those lost. Kim Kardashian, Kanye West, and Julia Roberts were in attendance alongside 820 “real people” who were lucky enough to snag a ticket.

What do two former accessories editors do when they leave the print-magazine world? Start an online magazine-slash-shop called Editorialist, of course. With all their insider know-how, we knew Kate Davidson Hudson and Stefania Allen would have some pretty epic style tips. Like what to pack for fashion month abroad – in London, Milan, and Paris.

Editorialist Kate Davidson Hudson and Stefania Allen
How far in advance do you start planning your packing list? 
We wish we were more organized, but it’s typically a mad dash a week before.

Do you pack outfits for specific events?
Yes! Organization is key when it comes to fashion-month packing. We usually lay out an outfit for each day and pair a different shoe and bag with each look. We always bring extra accessories and jewelry so we have something to play around with when we’re there in case we change our minds.

Be honest. How many bags do you bring?
Too many to admit to.

What are your in-flight essentials?
We always need our phones, headphones, computers, Valentino tote that fits everything, Balenciaga leather jacket, Proenza Schouler scarf to stay warm, and comfy Chloé ballet flats.

Grab your passport and chicest luggage. Then shop Kate and Stefania’s picks in our Fashion-Capital Style: Curated by Editorialist Boutique, which opens Thursday, September 17, at 3PM ET.

Four years ago, NYC filmmaker (and pastry chef!) Arden Wohl teamed up with Julie Dicterow, co-founder of vegan-approved brand Cri de Coeur. The result? Arden Wohl x Cri de Coeur. Fast-forward to a few collections later and the collab is still going strong. We sat down with the environmentally conscious designers before the hustle and bustle of NYFW to get the scoop on their latest line.

Arden Wohl x Cri de Coeur Shoes at NYFW

How long have you two been collaborating?
Julie: This is our fourth season together, but Cri de Coeur has been around since 2008.
Arden: The interesting thing is that it’s no longer a one-off – it’s now a full-time partnership.
Julie: We’re joining forces!

How do world issues influence your designs?
Arden: We stopped using leather with global warming in mind. Some of the world’s greatest problems would end if the world went vegetarian.
Julie: It’s all about veganism beyond the dinner plate – it’s what we wear, everything we do, and the businesses we support.

Do you think fashion will become more sustainable now that major houses, like Stella McCartney, are setting the tone?
Arden: Absolutely!
Julie: We’re depending on it. The more people know, the more it’s possible to do things the way we’ve been doing them. We hope the demand grows nationwide and around the world.

What’s exciting you about fashion today?
Arden: New technology!
Julie: Sustainable fashion – the new fabrics and textiles that are becoming available that aren’t leather. Using denim and polyurethane for shoes… and faux fur is really exciting!

Tell us about your inspiration for the Spring/Summer 2016 Collection.
Arden: It was based off a French film from the 60s, Cléo from 5 to 7, which was all about transitioning from an old-school way of living to the modern world. We felt very connected to that and recreated the French-marketplace feel in our installation.
Julie: It’s a feminist movement!
Arden: Someone got mad at me once and called me a “vegetarian feminist,” and I thought that was actually the best compliment ever.

What’s one pair of shoes from the collection every girl should have?
Arden: The fringed booties!

Favorite NY spot?
Arden: Oh, this is hard. The High Line! I love being on the West Side and the High Line.
