Thanks to Chanel, clogs are everywhere we turn, and just this morning celeb stylist Rachel Zoe was preaching about the shoes in her newsletter. She writes: "When Karl Lagerfeld sent a slew of less-than-conventional clogs down Chanel's spring runway, many people questioned his genius at first, but th

Getty ImagesThis morning the internet is abuzz with the latest celebrity scandal: Jane Fonda admits to having plastic surgery after claiming she wouldn't have any more. This is big news, because whenever a big star has cosmetic surgery, the media has a field day. People speculate about what was done, magazines enlist experts to weigh in on which procedures the believe were performed, and reporters even flat out ask the celebs to own up. But does any of it really matter?Read More »from Celeb surgery: do we want or need to know?
Sure, gossiping about who has done what to their faces and bodies makes for a juicy topic of discussion. In today's star-driven culture, haven't we all spent a moment speculating about whether a celebrity has gotten a new nose, a boob job, or a little botox? And the more popular or famous a celebrity is, the more we concern ourselves with their appearance. If comedienne Kathy Griffin gets a ton of plastic surgery, no one really cares or notices. But if Angelina Jolie has a procedure done DROP EVERYTHING! Last week tabloids were
Getty ImagesOver the past few years, Coco Rocha has become one of the biggest working models out of a new batch of young talent in the industry. This past week she walked in fashion shows for famous designers like Diane von Furstenberg and Zac Posen, but the New York Times and the New York Daily News reported that, "Coco Rocha is too fat for the runway." Now Rocha has taken to her blog, Oh So Coco, to set the record straight.Read More »from Coco Rocha challenges the modeling industry
Rocha describes herself as, "a 21 year old model, 6 inches taller and 10 sizes smaller than the average American woman." What is confusing about this, is that as stated in recent press about Rocha, she is sometimes considered too big for the modeling industry. Rocha says that while she has been privileged to work with editors, stylists, photographers, and agents who treat her with respect, not all of her peers have been so lucky. "Surely, we all see how morally wrong it is for an adult to convince an already thin 15 year old that she is actually too fat," writes Rocha.

This morning I found myself among around two-dozen lucky female editors who were given the opportunity to meet Sarah Jessica Parker. As a woman who has seen every episode of "Sex and the City" practically to the point of memorization, I am what you might call a really big fan. And while I once embarrassed myself by approaching Parker in a grocery store many years ago, I was delighted to meet her again under far sweeter circumstances. "Sweetie Pie" restaurant, to be exact: an adorable, girly restaurant in Manhattan's West Village, not far from where Parker herself resides.Read More »from Sarah Jessica Parker's new fragrance: "A party in a bottle"
As we sat down to brunch, Parker's new scent, SJP NYC, was set up on every table for editors to try. The perfume was incredibly fruity and juicy--something you'd look forward to spraying on once the temperatures rise. "What I really wanted to do was capture an image, a snapshot of Carrie Bradshaw," says Parker. "Sort of a freeze frame of her walking down a New York City street in the late spring, in a floral pink

Sure, Madonna is a style icon and long-time trendsetter, and she's already worked on a collaboration with H&M back in 2007, but there are a few logistics to a Madonna collection we can't quite wrap our minds around. For starters, we're not sure who her target shopper is.
With a star-studded front row, an arsenal of friends to provide custom shades and beats, and a stunning collection of garments and shoes that every woman would love, we think it's safe to say that Friday's Christian Siriano show was a major success.
