2014 Met Ball Dress Code Announced: White Tie and Decorations

The Met Gala, an annual ball hosted by Vogue’s editor-in chief Anna Wintour, always has a theme. Last year, it was punk. This year? White Tie and Decorations. (Cue that collective huh?)

This Just In: Anna Wintour Does Have a Heart

Or maybe just an aversion to crowded seating. Either way, Condé Nast’s artistic director did the unthinkable this morning at Valentino’s F/W 2014 show: She sat in the second row.

I’m just going to give you all a moment to process that, and then collect yourselves.


Good? Okay. Apparently, Anna voluntarily moved back to, get this, give her front-row seat to a writer (a writer, you guys) named Sarah Mower, who was reviewing the show for Vogue.com. And it gets even better. According to Bryanboy’s Twitter feed, Anna was asked by PR assistants to move back to the front but wouldn’t budge.

The devil wears Prada? More like the most selfless boss ever.

Instant Inspiration: 5 Pinterest Boards We Can’t Get Enough Of

A Tuesday roundup of our recent Pinterest obsessions

Right now, our Fashion Director, Jackie Nasser, and her (very lucky) team are at New York Fashion Week taking notes on all the latest runway trends. Back at the Boston offices, the rest of us are getting our NYFW fix via Livestream and Pinterest. Thank goodness for social media.

1. Shout-out to Paris, because we wouldn’t have NYFW otherwise.

2. Like it or not, fashion is all about picking favorites.

3. After all the time spent creating their collections, these designers more than deserve a bow at curtain call.

4. Fact: There’s always just as much style outside the tents as there is inside on the runways.

5. If Anna Wintour doesn’t show up, is it even NYFW?

Can’t get enough Pinterest inspiration? Check out past boards that caught our eye.

Kim Kardashian Might Have Landed the Cover of Vogue

What Kimye wants, Kimye gets. Which means when Kanye wishes to see Kim on the cover of Vogue, Anna Wintour makes it happen. And apparently there’s nothing anyone can do about it, as a well-placed source has confirmed that the shoot wrapped yesterday in Los Angeles.

If there’s one thing this celeb couple can teach us, it’s that perseverance pays off – which is why I’m adding “Vogue cover girl” to my bucket list.

Extra! Extra! Lena Dunham Lands Vogue Cover

Guys. Lena Dunham is your newest Vogue cover girl. Well, reportedly. According to Page Six, the Girls creator will grace the cover of the esteemed fashion magazine’s February issue. And it makes sense. I mean, she’s a popular actress, respected writer, and most importantly, will no doubt draw in a number of young readers to Vogue’s typically more mature audience. So why exactly is this news?

This Just In: Christmas Trees Are So Last Year

I love my mother, but she is, by all accounts, a neat freak. So, for as long as I can remember, we’ve always had a fake Christmas tree, because pine needles on the rug? Unacceptable. Well, as it turns out, she’s not the only one who hates Christmas trees that shed – Anna Wintour does too. That’s right, America’s supreme arbiter of good taste threw out her family’s tree early this year because it was “too messy.” Oh, Anna.

So what does AW’s little tree toss mean for the future of Christmas? Well, you can probably expect to see tree sales take a nosedive next year (Mindy Kaling’s already jumping on the bandwagon) while Anna and my mother bond over their mutual disdain for pine needles. And their love of my impeccable style. Obviously.

What to Wear to an Interview with Anna Wintour

Feeling out office dress codes is tough. Figuring out what to wear in the Vogue headquarters in front of – gulp – Anna Wintour? That’s beyond intimidating. I’m having heart palpitations just thinking about it.

These 13 people, however, were tasked with just that – and some with just a few hours’ notice.

To this day, I still remember what I wore to my interview here at Rue three years ago: a white Banana Republic shift, a silk, blush-colored Zara blazer, a kate spade new york bag, and nude open-toe pumps from ALDO (give a girl a break on that one – I was right out of college). But what would I wear to an interview with Ms. Wintour? Let me take in a quick screening of The Devil Wears Prada and get back to you.

Lena Dunham May Be the Next Vogue Cover Girl

What Anna Wintour wants, Anna Wintour gets. Her latest desire? Lena Dunham on the cover of Vogue. Willing to break with tradition, the magazine’s editor in chief may feature the Girls creator ”even though she doesn’t really conform to the body type that Vogue has featured for most of its history,” a source told Radar Online. And how is she setting this up, you ask? Over a fancy, top-secret dinner, of course.

If this collaboration does happen, one thing’s for sure: I’ll be first in line to get my hands on one of those glossies.
