Put It in Print: DVF Dresses Lady Liberty

As if a new E! reality TV show isn’t exciting enough, Diane von Furstenberg is celebrating her new series, House of DVF, by dressing America’s leading lady. No, we’re not talking Michelle Obama – this time, it’s the Statue of Liberty.

Six mini replicas of Lady Liberty will be trading their seafoam-green robes for one of DVF’s famous creations. The first of the statuettes was unveiled this morning on The Today Show, but if you’re in the Big Apple, keep an eye out for these ladies in the Meatpacking District, Columbus Circle, Times Square, SoHo, Washington Square, and Midtown East.

If I were the actual Statue of Liberty, I’d be feeling slightly underdressed right about now.

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?

Play Time: Opening Ceremony Will Stage a One-Act Show During Fashion Week

Every February and September designers continue to think outside the box – or, in the case of New York Fashion Week, the Lincoln Center tents – when it comes to presenting their work. Over the winter, Alexander Wang drew guests to (gasp!) Brooklyn Navy Yard, while last fall Rick Owens had college step squads sport his clothing instead of supermodels. And next month, Opening Ceremony will push the envelope with a one-act play in lieu of a traditional runway show.

The ultra-hip brand is still working on a script for its September 7 production, which is just a couple weeks away. But before you start labeling them procrastinators, keep in mind that OC is working with Academy Award–winning director (and frequent collaborator) Spike Jonze. Also on the playbill? Everyone’s fave funny man Jonah Hill, who sadly won’t be on stage but will have a writing credit.

Now, the suspense builds: What on earth is the storyline? Whatever the outcome, I’m excited to see the collection in action.

When Harry Met Sally, a Quarter Century Ago

I was only a year old when the movie When Harry Met Sally first debuted on the big screen on July 14, 1989. It’s true, I could barely hold my own bottle. But that didn’t stop me from, years later, sitting down with friends to watch one of the most influential rom-coms in pop culture history. And, yes, we’re still watching.

For a Good Cause: Anne Hathaway Joins Charity-Sign Trend

A few weeks ago, Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield took their power-couple awesomeness to the next level by warding off paparazzi not with hoods and fingers, but with signs that listed their favorite charities. And now, it seems they’ve started a trend. Over the long weekend, Anne Hathaway and husband Adam Shulman stepped out in New York City with similar cardboard cutouts.

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

A Tuesday roundup of our recent Pinterest obsessions

We’re still coming down from our New York Fashion Week high. Can you blame us? It was a color-story dream.

1. From lipstick to handbags, Rebecca Minkoff’s collection was all about the oxblood accents.

2. MILLY has officially assured us that black-on-black (on black) is way more chic than morbid.

3. Pink came alive in every shade on the Monique Lhuillier runway.

4. Often-underappreciated navy made a major comeback in SUNO’s collection.

5. Carolina Herrera covered her catwalk in blood orange.

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?

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

A Tuesday roundup of our recent Pinterest obsessions

We can’t stop talking about (and looking at pictures of) New York Fashion Week. And Pinterest is only perpetuating the problem.

1. With so many people rushing around, it’s important to know who’s who.

2. Runway makeup is reimagined every season.

3. That moment when you realize street style is almost competing with the collections.

4. These shots make us feel so much closer to the front row.

5. Only the best of the best? Don’t mind if we do.
