Trendsetters at Work: E! Online Interviews Our Fashion Director

How did you get started in your career?
I got an internship at ELLE magazine. I initially had a hybrid role working for both the beauty and the features departments. I got to test out hundreds of new products, learn the science and technology behind beauty products, go to press events and, most importantly, I learned how to write (it’s harder than you think!). Interning is the best way to work out if a job is right for you or not. I knew immediately that I wanted to be in the editorial world. When a fashion position opened up at ELLEgirl magazine I jumped at the chance.

Trend Report: Crochet Clothing

It’s official. Crochet clothing is going to be big this spring – but unlike in past seasons, it’s meant to be more refined than boho-looking. So, to make sure we’re pulling off the 70s-inspired trend in a polished way, we turned to our fashion director, Jackie, for a few tips.

Loving Lupita: Our Fashion Director on Hollywood’s New It Girl

By Jackie Nasser, Rue La La Fashion Director

 
She seemingly came out of nowhere, but now, this girl is on everyone’s radar. And I mean everyone’s. After nabbing the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress from right under Jennifer Lawrence’s nose, stealing the show at every red-carpet event, and sparking dating rumors with fellow Oscar winner Jared Leto (he even referred to her as “my future ex-wife” in one of his acceptance speeches), it’s no wonder we’re all a little Lupita-obsessed right now.

While her performance in 12 Years a Slave got our attention, it’s her unique style that has us all really enthralled. It’s not easy to outshine Angelina Jolie, Cate Blanchett, and Julia Roberts on the red carpet, but somehow, Lupita has managed to do it time and again. Here are my picks for her top five awards-show looks.

The Grammy Awards Best-Dressed List

By Jackie Nasser, Rue La La Fashion Director

 
After a steady stream of awards shows celebrating both movies and TV, last night it was all about the music industry. Forget elegant gowns and dainty jewelry – at the Grammys, the red carpet is by far the most entertaining part of the show. The fashions are a little wild (Daft Punk in helmets), a little revealing (Paris Hilton in super-sheer House of Milani) and a little unexpected (Madonna and son David in matching Ralph Lauren suits). Here are my top five picks for best dressed:

The People’s Choice Awards Best-Dressed List

By Jackie Nasser, Rue La La Fashion Director

 
Last night, the People’s Choice Awards kicked off what will be a steady stream of awards shows over the next few months, culminating with the Academy Awards in March. And while there were plenty of big wins (Sandra Bullock! Justin Timberlake! Britney!) and some truly hilarious speeches on stage – do yourself a favor and YouTube Ellen DeGeneres’s acceptance for Favorite Daytime TV Host – the real competition was on the red carpet.

Cropped Talk: Our Fashion Director on the Pixie Cut

By Jackie Nasser, Rue La La Fashion Director

 
I recently realized something about myself: I’m in a hair rut. After a teenage bout with experimentation (jet black, bright red, and a bob inspired by 90210’s Kelly Taylor), I’ve played it pretty safe with my hair. But secretly, I want to be a lot bolder. I want to be one of those women who is a natural hair chameleon, who can go from a platinum asymmetrical bob to long auburn waves with ease. Some women – like Victoria Beckham, Katy Perry, Drew Barrymore, and Rachel McAdams, just to name a few – actually have this ability.
