SJP Joins Twitter – and Uses Her Eye as a Profile Pic #dontblink

It’s seldom we get too excited when any celebrity joins Twitter – aren’t they all tweeting by now? – but this time, it’s different. Sarah Jessica Parker signed up this week, tweeting under the minimalistic handle of @SJP. We wonder at the success of Twitter’s IPO and Ms. Parker’s timing… coincidence?

Sarah Jessica Parker

And she’s picked quite an unusual profile picture. As ELLE UK says, “If you were expecting a side of beautiful imagery with her musings, prepare to be disappointed: her profile picture is a close-up of her (admittedly, immaculately made-up) eye.”

Chitter Chatter

 

Watch: Chanel’s Marilyn and No. 5 and hear Marilyn Monroe declare her love for the legendary perfume. We have to say, her ads were a lot better than Brad Pitt’s (not that we don’t still love him).

Check Out: The trailer for City of Bones. With Twilight coming to a close (tear), this might just be our new guilty pleasure.

Say: Good-bye to Kate Lanphear at ELLELanphear leaves after six years as the style director. As for where she’s going… let the guessing games begin!

Rent: Your nail polish. Yes, we’re serious.

Chitter Chatter

Check Out: A sneak peek at our girl crush Vicky Beckham’s stunning photos with Karl Lagerfeld for French ELLE. And yes, that is the late, great Coco Chanel’s home.

Know: Sally Singer is gainfully employed once again, returning to her old stomping grounds, Vogue, as the creative director of digital.

Look: Away if you have a weak stomach – this post isn’t for you. InStyle reports that Martha Stewart paints her Louboutin soles black. We repeat: BLACK. Martha, you may be the queen of crafts, but this is just unacceptable.

Watch: An adorable Mila Kunis in this 1993 Lisa Frank commercial. The former Dior spokesmodel sure has come a long way (although we do love that hat).

ELLE Editor’s Picks: Trench Dressing for the New Season

ELLE Editor's Picks

A Stylish Necessity
For those of us not fortunate enough to live in a climate that’s 75 degrees year-round, versatile outerwear is more than necessary – it’s a means of survival. Even in the dead of summer, one can be caught in a flash downpour at any time of day, and as a conscious dresser, I could never bring myself to rock a plastic poncho from the nearest Duane Reade. What other choice do I have but to indulge in a variety of lightweight trench coats in shades from stone to camel to midnight navy? I actually don’t even look at it as an indulgence since the trench coat is truly seasonless and has proven to be one of the most timeless options for outerwear.

ELLE and Roger Vivier Celebrate the Book “Parisian Chic” by Ines de la Fressange

BY LAUREN DAVID PEDEN/THE FASHION INFORMER

Parisian Chic

On Wednesday night, the Roger Vivier boutique hosted a party for the book Parisian Chic: A Style Guide by Ines de la Fressange. I received a review copy a week earlier, and had been savoring it like a delicious box of chocolates, reading a chapter or two each night before bed, trying to make the experience last as long as possible (what can I say, I’m a sucker for an illustrated fashion guide, and this one is especially insightful, informative, and irreverent).

Ines, as you probably know, is a legendary French style icon/model, designer, muse to Karl Lagerfeld and Jean Paul Gaultier, International Best-Dressed List Hall of Famer, brand identity consultant for Roger Vivier, and the newly-appointed face of L’Oreal, a gig she nabbed at the ripe young age of 53 (she turns 54 in August and has been modeling since the 80s).

ELLE Jewelry Spotlight: nOir

INTERVIEW WITH ELLE.COM EDITOR SYDNEY WASSERMAN ABOUT THE MUST-HAVE JEWELRY LINE

nOir

nOir jewelry is a favorite among our editors to use in high-impact editorial photo shoots – not to mention glamming up their daily uniforms. We checked in with ELLE.com Fashion and Shopping Editor Sydney Wasserman for the inside scoop on the must-have jewelry line that has her whole office (and ours!) buzzing.

Rue La La: A lot of the nOir pieces are very bold (we’re talking animal shapes and serious spikes) – can people incorporate such statement jewelry into their everyday style?
Sydney: With particularly large statement jewelry, it’s all about fit. A heavy necklace shouldn’t look heavy when you’re wearing it, and it shouldn’t protrude from your dress in an awkward or uncomfortable way. Pay attention to the cut of your clothes and the particular jewelry that you’re pairing it with. For example, if it’s a collar necklace, your shirt’s neckline should be cut high or much lower. And if it’s a stack of thick bracelets, you don’t want your sleeve hanging over them.

Rue La La: When wearing a really loud item, do you usually style the rest of your outfit really simply or do you go all out in an equally daring ensemble?
Sydney: I don’t think women need to wear plain clothes in order to pull off statement jewelry. But the jewelry should flow with the silhouette of the outfit, not create two separate statements.

ELLE: The Mary J. Blige Honors Concert

A NIGHT OF STARS, STYLE, AND MUSIC 

Mary J. Blige

We’re so excited to offer Members an opportunity to attend the Mary J. Blige Honors Concert at NYC’s Hammerstein Ballroom. The incredible night is hosted by ELLE Editor-in-Chief Robbie Myers, Queen Latifah, and the artist herself. Of course, Mary J. Blige’s amazing charity is the main draw, but we have to admit, we’re looking forward to the music, celebs, and sure-to-be-stellar fashion scene as well. Here’s a quick recap of what we’re most excited to take in at the May 1st extravaganza.

The Charity
All proceeds will benefit Mary J. Blige’s FFAWN (Foundation for the Advancement of Women Now, Inc.), a charity that helps young women gain access to educational and professional opportunities.

ELLE: 34 Perfect Tops

SYDNEY WASSERMAN, ELLE.COM EDITOR, GIVES HER TAKES ON TOP-NOTCH STYLE

ELLE: Perfect Tops

We put a lot of emphasis on the perfect pair of jeans, but it’s what goes on top that makes them an expression of personal style. The range of fashion-forward top options seems to be limitless – change your shirt and you’ve changed your entire look. We sat down with ELLE.com Fashion & Shopping Editor Sydney Wasserman for her expert advice on all things tops.

Rue La La: Okay, we need the inside scoop on flattering tricks! Are there different styles that work best on different body types?
Sydney: I believe women with curves should choose more form-fitting tops instead of trying to hide their shape in baggy styles. A shapeless shirt can make you look larger than you may be. A few more rules of thumb: a button-down top should never be too tight so that the buttons look like they’re about to pop off, and a T-shirt should hit right below the waistband.

Rue La La: We tend to lean towards dresses when going somewhere formal – but what types of tops work best for dressy occasions?
Sydney: The key is wearing fabrics that appear rich – if it’s a print, try well-draped chiffon. And a silk blouse is always right for a dressy occasion.
