Hey, New York Slaves To Fashion: We won't tell if you sneak away during your lunch break tomorrow to do some stargazing at the new Dash boutique in Soho, which Kim, Khloe, and Kourtney Kardashian opened last night, with a little help from 100 fans and Kanye West himself!
Dash Soho is officially open for business on Spring Street, and the neighborhood showed its love by welcoming the reality stars with open arms. Check out the sign one dude displayed from his balcony near the store--kind of an unlikely-looking fan, huh?
Inside the store it was invite-only, but The Cut reports that the real action was happening on the street outside the boutique, anyway. They say more than "100 die-hard, slightly crazed tweens" had gathered behind barricades at the entrance for a chance to catch a Kardashian on their cameraphone, and that when the three sisters (plus Scott Disick) arrived, it was pure bedlam. So insane, in fact, that while the police were busy

Tell me ladies, do you have a long-running fascination with bandage skirts like I do? Wanting to wear them yourself but afraid they're one of those things that only look good on celebs and models? (They just seem so darn tight!)
A few months back I gave in, braved the bandage myself and have realized they're one of the best wardrobe staples you can own...like Spanx you can wear on the outside.
Changed your mind? There's more where that came from: take a peek into our very own Glamour closet!

A recent story from Forbes brought news about as confounding as hearing that Charlie Sheen was opening up an orphanage, or that Paula Deen was getting into the weight loss business: Chad Hurley, CEO of YouTube (and certified web geek), is leaving his job to focus full-time on a fashion line.
The Cut uncovered the story, which explains that Hurley--who sold his company to Google for $1.65 billion a few years back, buying him some free time and cash to dabble in whatever he pleases, we're guessing--has been working with business partner Anthony Mazzei on a menswear line called Hlaska since 1994.
The line consists of button-down shirts, chinos, T-shirts and leather messenger bags, and Hurley says it's really no different from what he did at YouTube: "We make wallets, bags and shirts we'd want to see sold in stores. In that sense it's exactly like YouTube. We wanted something that wasn't available, so we built it ourselves." They're planning to expand

It takes a major passion for fashion to quit your day job in advertising and launch your own label, which is exactly what LA-based designer Geren Lockhart did 12 years ago. The results from her Geren Ford line and her newer lower-price Hawks collection for Urban Outfitters have slowly crept into the closets of unsuspecting cool girls everywhere. See some of Geren's latest duds and get to know this globe-trotting lover of the arts!
My line all started with a pair of pants. They were a way to solve a problem in my own life, and then the world around me wanted them too!
When not working, I'd rather be in Paris or Hawaii. Paris, for obvious reasons. There is no way to not be inspired and awed there. Hawaii, because it's the closest and furthest island experience from the west coast where I live-and it's always 80 degrees.
I'm currently inspired by the artist, Louise Bourgeois. The color palette and prints from my holiday collection are a tribute to her,

She's not just our December cover girl--Fergie also happens to be one of fashion's most fabulous chameleons. She can go from fierce to flirty from one day to the next, and she somehow manages to look perfectly at ease in both. Check out some of her most memorable red carpet moments below:

I know, I know, you were probably guessing that this was one of those headlines that's meant to grab your attention, but turns out to be a joke--kinda like Baby Spanx--but it's an actual fact that if you're a woman and you wear pants in Paris, you're breaking the law.
It's a totally antiquated and obviously largely-ignored law that dates all the way back to 1799, but AOL Travel reports that a rule that says "any woman who wants to 'dress like a man' has to get special permission from police" is still in place. Members of French parliament recently submitted a draft bill to have the ridiculous law repealed, and the Telegraph UK says, "The rule, which technically makes Paris's clothing laws stricter than many hardline Islamic states, was relaxed in 1892 by an amendment which said trousers were permitted 'as long as the woman is holding the reins of a horse.' The decree was watered down again in 1909 by a clause allowing women to wear trousers while

File this under some of the best fashion news we've heard in ages: Derek Lam is teaming up with eBay to design an affordable clothing collection--and he's "crowdsourcing" prospective pieces to find out which ones you like best!
Details are still scarce, but we got a press release yesterday afternoon saying that Lam will "introduce an original collection to be sold exclusively on eBay, the world's largest online marketplace and a leading U.S. destination for fashion. Lam will leverage eBay's global community of more than 93 million by crowdsourcing prospective pieces, with the collective consumer voice determining which are produced for the final exclusive collection." In other words, YOU get to decide which items actually go into production! "Having a direct and immediate dialogue with the online audience is what makes fashion exciting and relevant in this moment," Lam said in the press release. "eBay's technology offers me a unique and innovative

She may be famous in part for her pin-thin frame, but it turns out Victoria Beckham knows a thing or two about how to flatter a seriously curvy figure.
The one and only Oprah Winfrey (a master of dressing her bod to maximum figure flattery) chose a frock from Victoria's fall 2010 collection for a recent appearance at the Maria Shriver Women's Conference, and she looked as perfectly polished as always. The secret? The dress drew attention to the right places (that enviable cleavage and slim waist) and away from the wrong ones (the broadest section of her hips were quite literally hidden away under a swath of fabric).
Oprah's not the first curvy celeb to embrace Victoria's designs, either. We've seen both Jennifer Hudson and Ugly Betty star America Ferrera in the same black peplum cocktail dress:
This one works on the same level as Oprah's, pulling all eyes to the decolletage (remember my rule for wearing square necklines if you're curvy?) and

So I'm not sure what's up with all the full-sequin beanies I keep seeing (maybe the "Grandmas Do Vegas 2010 Convention" ordered too many?) but luckily when it comes to chic hats, you have mucho options right now.

This weekend the (new!) husband and I spent some QT in the recently opened J.Crew men's store on Manhattan's Madison Avenue, where I cozied into a comfy leather chair and did some Tim Gunn-like consulting as he tried on a slew of fall styles. I had to giggle a little because every time he left the dressing room, he was wearing a slightly different version of the same everyday uniform I see on him and all of our guy friends: a checked button-down shirt, dark blue jeans and hipster sneakers. That's why I was a little surprised when a store clerk told me that nearly every gent who comes in the store walks out with a full-on suit!
He told me that J.Crew's hip Ludlow suits--along with all the bells and whistles like pocket squares and tie-clips--were flying off the shelves! (Or in the uptown store's case, the cedar-lined, vintage book-accessorized, library-like racks.) I was a little shocked to hear that there were so many dapper dudes out there since Read More »from What Are the Men in Your Life Wearing These Days?
