Spy Eye: An Interview With the Costume Designer for The Americans

Like most married couples, Elizabeth and Philip Jennings have their share of ups and downs, passion and apathy, parenting mishaps and frequent misunderstandings and breakups. Unlike most married couples however, The Jennings, the TV family at the center of The Americans, are also undercover Cold War-era Soviet spies… » 1/28/15 10:44pm Yesterday 10:44pm

So Many Beauties (And So Many From OITNB!) at the SAG Awards

Everyone thinks the Oscars are the diamond-glitter-dust Awards Ceremony, but that's a bit of a misnomer: sure it's all fancy and frou-frou but the Screen Actor's Guild Awards is where you can see your favorite A-list movie AND television stars, frolicking together like it's nothing. Like Oscar winner Lupita Nyong'o… » 1/26/15 4:15pm Monday 4:15pm

Businessweek Depicts Abercrombie & Fitch as an Old Shirtless Man

Much has been written in recent years about the decline of Abercrombie & Fitch. The retailer has gone from producing the must-wear apparel of teens to a company desperately trying to convince people they're cool. So what better way to represent their age issues than to depict them as a shirtless man wearing A&F jeans… » 1/22/15 11:10am 1/22/15 11:10am

Famed '60s Model Twiggy, Now in Her 60s, Becomes L'Oréal UK Ambassador

In keeping with the trend of fashion and beauty lines revitalizing the careers of former supermodels (and in some cases just plain starting the fashion careers of women of a certain age), L'Oréal Professionnel in the UK has named former '60s star Twiggy, now 65, the ambassador for their product Majirel High Lift,… » 1/21/15 7:10pm 1/21/15 7:10pm

Why Is Michelle Obama Pandering With This Michael Kors Shite?

In President Obama's milquetoast State of the Union address last night, we learned—as my colleague Anna so succinctly put it—that being conciliatory works for no one. As it turns out, both of the Obamas have been drinking that placatory kool-aid. Michelle, what is with the Michael Kors?!? » 1/21/15 12:50pm 1/21/15 12:50pm

Macy's Teams With Thalia: Retailers Still Trying to Crack Latina Code

About eight years ago, mainstream companies suddenly realized that there are a lot of Latinas in the United States and oh my god, we actually buy shit. Though we are a vast and deeply complicated bunch who cannot be easily enticed—more complex than a Rubik's Cube or Sudoku—marketers continue to attempt to crack the… » 1/20/15 12:30pm 1/20/15 12:30pm

Silk Gowns, Actual Men, and Tiny Armanis at the Critic's Choice Awards

Last night's entry in Awards Season Race to the Oscars was the Critic's Choice Awards, where a veritable mélange of humans came together under the same roof for possibly the first time (just assuming Reese Witherspoon, Niecy Nash, and Jenny Slate do not hang out together on the regs), and we learned that Angelina… » 1/16/15 1:30pm 1/16/15 1:30pm

Hello, Kit Harington in This Jimmy Choo Ad, You Exceptional Human You

Male actor Kit Harington has been tapped to model for a vaguely confusing but ultimately highly satisfying Jimmy Choo ad, in which the indubitably fly Harington is perched, Spider-manlike, atop a car windshield. It is beautiful, and it is essentially a parody of what many people consider high fashion to be. » 1/15/15 2:30pm 1/15/15 2:30pm

Fashion World Enraptured By John Galliano's Dumb New Collection 

Four years after a drug-fueled anti-Semitic rant imploded John Galliano's career—resulting in his firing first from Dior, and later from his eponymous label—the designer has launched a comeback of sorts with an "artisanal" (what) collection for Maison Martin Margiela at the end of London's fall 2015 menswear… » 1/12/15 7:10pm 1/12/15 7:10pm
