Angelina Jolie (Finally) Ties the Knot in Versace

Here comes the bride – in Atelier Versace. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt were married in an under-wraps wedding at the couple’s home in Marseille, France just last weekend. Of course, everyone’s been dying to knowWho was she wearing? 

In true Brangelina fashion, the gown had a creative and totally cute twist. Luigi Massi, master tailor at the famed Italian fashion house and a longtime family friend, embroidered drawings sketched by their six kids onto the veil and gown.  Angelina completed the chic, custom look with white silk Versace pumps.

Keep on sketching, Jolie-Pitt children. I see some runway designs in your future.

Follow Back: Barbie Is Instagram’s Newest Member

Just when you thought Barbie had done it all, she’s back at it again. With over 150 careers on her résumé, the iconic doll’s newest endeavor might be her most fashionable one yet. Next month, Barbie will play Instagram street style sensation, taking on fashion weeks in four cities: New York, London, Milan, and Paris.

Under the handle @BarbieStyle, Barbie has already started documenting her #OOTDs, packing essentials, and accessories close-ups, as well as her favorite places in each fashion capital. Yup, shes got the blogger routine down.

Of course, this isn’t Barbie’s first time in the style ring. She’s collaborated with some of fashion’s finest – Karl Lagerfeld, Versace, and Vera Wang to name a few – and she also held a runway show in New York to celebrate her 50th anniversary. This year, she’ll kick off NYFW by co-hosting a party with the CFDA.

I followed this account quicker than I begged for that Barbie Dream House back in Christmas of 1993.

They Can’t Stop: Miley & Jeremy Are Teaming Up for NYFW

If gigantic teddy bears and cartoons are your thing, then you’re in for a treat. Miley Cyrus (well-known for both) and Moschino’s colorful tongue-in-cheek creative director Jeremy Scott have something big up their sleeves for New York Fashion Week.

At Sunday night’s MTV Video Music Awards, Jeremy announced, “Miley and I have something very exciting we’re brewing up for the future.” He was tight-lipped about details, but revealed that the show will feature “a group of cool kids” instead of models.

No word yet on what they’re plotting, but I have some ideas. Miley had a homeless teen, Jesse Helt, accept her Moonman on her behalf to raise awareness for the issue. Could those be the cool kids Jeremy’s talking about? Will it involve another group of performers? Perhaps his show will use Miley’s Bangerz as a soundtrack? Only time will tell. Until then, the duo will have everyone (including the front row) on the edge of their seats.

Because I’m Happy: Models Smile for Fall Campaigns

Kate Moss for ELEVEN PARIS. Cara Delevingne for Burberry. Gisele Bündchen for Sonia Rykiel. Along with impeccably cozy style, this fall’s fashion models are sporting a parade of toothy grins – a welcome departure from the stoic, cold stares perpetuated by the 90s heroin-chic movement.

Perhaps it has something to do with Pharrell Williams’s insanely catchy tune. Or maybe big-name designers simply want to appear more approachable? Either way, I like this changeup. Bring on the happy.

Raise Your Glass: Kate Moss Celebrates 25 Years in Fashion

She’s dominated fashion spreads for a quarter century. And now? Kate Moss is toasting to her success with a champagne coupe molded from the shape of her bust. The British supermodel partnered with posh London restaurant 34 to create the personalized glass.

A little bizarre? Maybe. But it’s been done before. Rumor has it, the first champagne coupe ever made was modeled on Marie Antoinette’s left breast, which British artist Jane McAdam Freud used as inspiration for Kate’s modern version.

“I was excited to participate in this project…what an honor to be alongside Marie Antoinette – she was a very intriguing and mischievous character,” Kate said. “Champagne is always associated with celebration and happy occasions and I had fun creating this beautiful coupe.”

Come October, Kate will launch the creation at 34 and its sister restaurants The Ivy, Daphne’s, and Scott’s. As if I needed another excuse to book that trip to London…

Mini-Me: Lucky Editor Eva Chen’s Stylish Pregnancy Announcement

You’re not a true Instagram celebrity until you have a signature selfie pose, and Lucky magazine editor Eva Chen is no exception. The industry expert regularly snaps her bag, shoes, and snack in the backseat of many a NYC taxi – but yesterday morning, something was a little unusual. Next to Eva’s quilted Chanel purse, classic New Balance kicks, and piece of fruit were baby versions of the same items with the caption: “#evachenpose: like mother, like future (winter 2015!) daughter edition.”

Yep! She’s having a girl. And like North West, this little one already has a mini Chanel in her style arsenal.

You’ll Flip (Pages) for LANVIN’s New Book

LANVIN, Paris’s oldest and most colorful fashion house, knows the importance of good window-shopping. Designer Alber Elbaz and his creative displays are the subjects of an upcoming Rizzoli tome set to hit stores, and coffee tables, in October.

The 260-page book, titled Lanvin: I Love You, highlights 200 color photos of the house’s eccentric storefront displays and installations. We’re not talking your run-of-the-mill mannequins. Expect to see hand-drawn sketches, vintage cars, and even musical instruments made of crushed cans. Alber is known for incorporating elaborate props and artwork into every display and begins each one with a story and sketch. “Windows are the most direct way to communicate with people,” he writes in the book’s foreword.

Between this and the upcoming Louis Vuitton photography book, my fashion library is about to get a serious fall upgrade – even if my wardrobe isn’t.

On the Ball: Lacoste Launches New Tennis App

You’ve witnessed a home run at Yankee Stadium and seen Carly Rae Jepsen star in Cinderella. All that’s left to do? Find a free New York City tennis court to play on, obviously.

Preppy brand Lacoste’s latest app, City Tennis, aims to get you onto the courts of NYC by mitigating the where-to-play stress of private-club costs, public-court wait times, and limited court availability. Check out its court locator (with options in all five boroughs), or take in some between-set entertainment like player bios, an interactive game, and a shopping portal. 

There’s no word yet on whether the posh service will branch out to other cities. But if you simply can’t make it to the Big Apple, there’s no harm in downloading the free app and pretending you’re about to crush an opponent in Manhattan, right?

North West: The Future of Fashion?

The Kardashian clan is no stranger to a photo shoot. And now even the youngest member of the family, North, has dipped her tiny toes in the modeling pool. Featured in the fifth edition of Carine Roitfeld’s CR Fashion Book, Kimye’s daughter rocks head-to-toe Chanel in a spread titled Legends. A legend at just 13 months old? Well, according to Karl Lagerfeld’s accompanying quote, “It’s never too early to care about fashion!” From those glittering diamond studs to the mini 2.55 quilted bag, I’d say little North has a very fashionable future ahead.

Wild Child: Rihanna Stuns in W Magazine

“Bad girl” RiRi is no stranger to the exotic. Covering the September issue of W magazine, the singer and fashion icon channels her wild side to the extreme. The result? Nothing short of stunning.

Rocking a pierced septum, the singer wears tribal war paint, leather, suede, and lots of skin in the artistic spread. At one point, she’s even surrounded by a pack of wolves while wearing a fierce fur getup, complete with dramatic makeup and jewelry.

Whether she’s showing off her party animal ways or portraying an actual animal, Rihanna never ceases to amaze us.
