Be the Mane Event: From Jennifer Lawrence's Oscar chignon to Jessica Alba's classic Hollywood waves, we scoured YouTube for the ten best red carpet hair tutorials. It's a Fashion Rainbow! By compiling images from all of the Fall 2013 collections, we mapped out the color trends in each of the fashion capitals--and created some gorgeous graphics in the process. The Greatest Designer Comebacks Ever Staged: In fashion, one day you're in, and the next day you're out... and occasionally, you find your way back in again! From Marc Jacobs to Coco Chanel, here are fashion's greatest designer comeback stories. Would You Rather Go to College or Buy This Hermès Shirt? Seriously: They both cost around the same amount.
Besides offering a more affordable yet still chic alternative to Chloe's main line, See by Chloé is currently on the forefront of a couple of trends this fashion month: online fashion shows and Paris' increasing acceptance of designers' second lines. (Suzy Menkes wrote in today's International Herald Tribune, about a new "parallel fashion universe" being created with secondary lines offering more accessible French fashion.) See by Chloé, which launched 10 years ago while Stella McCartney was still designing the main line, is now in the midst of a bit of a revamp, hence this online runway show--a deviation for the brand, who have previously never formally shown.
Chloé diffusion line See by Chloé, which has never formally shown--in any format--will debut a fall 2012 collection tomorrow and you won't have to fly
Wanna get someone a fabulous gift that's designer without breaking the bank? You totally can. In fact, a lot of designer labels cater to people like us who want to be fancy but for whom the Miu Miu shoes and Alaïa dresses we really want are far out of reach. These aren't knock-offs or collaborations or makeup, but real designer items that we would actually be very happy to find under the tree or in a stocking. Now if someone could tell us where to put stockings when you don't have a fireplace, that would be great. From Prada to Alexander Wang to Alaïa (seriously!), here are the 14 best little designer gifts that less than $300 can buy!
Reader Angie tipped us off to his rather upsetting Adventures In Copyright. It seems that See by Chloe has blatantly ripped off Mandy Coon's "Ginny Bunny Bag." Both bags are black leather, and in the shape of bunny. We wonder though, how the quality of the leather compares among the two bags. The only noticeable difference between the two is that the original bag has a gold chain while the See by Chloe bag has a wrist band. Either way, it's always disappointing to see big labels rip off smaller, independently-owned labels. Especially when the knocked-off piece looks exactly the same as the original. Then again, both bags kind of remind us of those coveted Giles dinosaurs bags.
