Kate Dillon, the plus-size supermodel and Harvard-educated policy wonk, is brilliant with figures.
By Sally Singer. Photographed by Patrick Demarchelier.On a chilly December day, a giant of the modeling world goes shopping at some Lilliputian boutiques on New York's Lower East Side. Kate Dillon-she stands five feet eleven, wears a size 10, and at age 36 has been the face (and body) of "plus size" modeling for more than a decade-is looking for clothes that fit her well in every sense. An environmental and education activist with a degree in international development from Harvard's Kennedy School, she has an overtly principled approach to shopping. So at the eco-fashion and lifestyle shop Kaight, she considers sweaters and little tops made of bamboo ("grows like a weed; in my opinion a great material because of the low water usage. Some people don't agree") and hemp ("also grows like a weed, but you still have to process it"). She wanders in and out of vintage shops-for Dillon, Read More »from Plus-size supermodel Kate Dillon opens up to Vogue
This week I went to preview the Rodarte for Target collection. Although I'd gotten my hands on the look book a few weeks ago and seen the fantastic picture of Dakota Fanning wearing the leopard-print dress ($45) in Teen Vogue, I didn't want to write about the clothes until I'd seen them in person. There've been too many times when I've seen Target or H&M or Topshop clothes that have looked great in photos only to find that when I got to the store the fit and/or quality was not something I would spend money on.
What I like about the Rodarte clothes for Target is that Kate and Laura Mulleavy-who are known for their exquisitely ornate confections at sky-high designer prices-didn't try to morph what they show on the runway into something that could be sold for a fraction of the price. It seems to me that they chose styles and fabrics that suited the modest price tags. As Sally Singer notes in Vogue's December issue, Laura Mulleavy once turned up at a dinner during Paris Fashion Week wearing a brooch she described as "Sears. Twelve dollars." The Mulleavys, in other words, understand high-low.Read More »from Vogue Preview: The Best from Rodarte for Target
I'm not going to kid you-blue eye makeup isn't an easy thing to carry off. It's a look whose past moments are still so memorable there's almost no way to wear it now that makes it seem new. Two years ago, nevertheless, I had a moment in Sephora: I got seduced by the loveliest shade of Nars metallic aqua liquid liner and just had to have it.Read More »from Vogue Says: Blue Eyeliner is Hot
I loved that it wasn't shadow and it wasn't powder, and I hoped the thinner, shinier line would bring an old idea straight into the present. However, it wasn't until this past June that I actually had the nerve to put it on. (I have to admit I was egged on by the eighties-inspired colored eye shadows François Nars himself used at the Marc Jacobs show the previous Fashion Week.) So I had my makeup artist/friend Suzy coming over to do my makeup for the CFDA Fashion Awards; I thought the dress I was wearing (DVF resort collection) would support some colored makeup on my face, and I was sick of bright lips.

In last week's Wall Street Journal, Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour weighed in on the harem pant, the latest look whose unconventional cut has the fashion world divided: "To be honest, they are not my favorite." The baggy trouser with a low-hanging crotch and tailored ankles that recalls MC Hammer for some and undeniable chic for others has proven an enduring trend long after Sarah Mower called attention to them in the magazine when they first appeared on runways in 2008. Though the pant has proven its staying power, appearing as a fixture in fall 2009 collections such as Givenchy's (right) and Balenciaga's (left), the debate about its fashion fate continues, even at Vogue.Read More »from Anna Wintour and Vogue Staff Divided Over Harem Pants
An informal poll in the hallways asking where staffers fall on the issue is met with giggles, proving that if nothing else, the harem pant can't be taken too seriously. "Most women have mixed feelings about them because they are sort of weird-looking, but I think they're perfect because they're

I recently saw pictures of both Kirsten Dunst and Kate Moss wearing fitted little blazers over an evening gowns. It seemed like the pinnacle moment in an evolution I've been personally making with blazers.
For me, blazers have always been worn with pants. In my boarding school, a tailored jacket was required if you chose not to wear a skirt. And in my art-gallery-girl days I wore a Theory blazer over Joseph "jodhpur" pants-so nineties, I know! Nowadays, I rarely wear jeans without throwing my favorite Calvin Klein wool "riding" blazer on top.
But to go back a bit. . . . I think it was 2004 when I first noticed my friend Coco Brandolini wearing a velvet blazer over dresses and both knee-length and floor-length skirts. Not that this is such a novel idea. Women have been wearing tailored jackets with skirts for years but never in a way that was appealing to me. Somehow they always looked too much like a corporate suit.Read More »from Style Trend: Wearing Fitted Blazers Over Evening Gowns, Cocktail Dresses, and Skirts
Karolina Kurkova as Marilyn Manson, Photographed by Steven Meisel. Makeup by Pat McGrath.Lady Gaga, whose closet seems to closely resemble a costume box, albeit one of couture proportions, has set the bar for transformational, theatrical dressing-makeup and hair included. From gilded masks to black geisha lips and her signature faux doll lashes, Gaga knows how to camouflage. This Halloween, take a cue from the queen of disguise and schedule an appointment with masters in the art of metamorphoses. Whether it's fluttery, feathery lashes (Shu Uemura), high-concept body paint (Make Up For Ever), out-there hair (Butterfly Studio), full-face fantasy makeup (M.A.C.), or just a lesson in the ultimate cat eye (Sephora), there's a pro for that. Lady Gaga, consider the gauntlet thrown. --Christina Han

Nobody, past or present, has worn jeans better than Jane Birkin. While most people know her as the namesake of the Hermès Birkin bag and the mother of French fashion muses Charlotte Gainsbourg and Lou Doillon, to me Birkin is the queen of denim. She's never worn designer jeans or jeans with elaborately branded embroidery on the back pocket. She just wears well-loved, well-worn jeans. In the seventies, she seemed to wear them nearly ever day-some days with a T-shirt and red sandals, other days with a stripy sweater and ballet flats or with a tank top and wedge-heeled espadrilles. It also appears that Birkin has never been one to own multiple pairs; in most pictures of her, if you look closely, she's wearing the same ones. Even today, she still looks more at home in jeans than almost anyone else I can think of. She inhabits them so effortlessly.Read More »from Why Jane Birkin is the Queen of Jeans

Here's our scary story: Last Halloween, jeweler Eddie Borgo (yes, he of coveted pyramid spike bracelets) decided he needed a housewarming gift for his friend designer Victor Glemaud's annual downtown get-together. Flowers didn't seem appropriate, so he opted to create a festive custom-made centerpiece: a bejeweled pumpkin. "It seemed natural that I would stud it," Borgo says, considering he had all the supplies handy from his jewelry-making. The result (see step by step below) was so spellbinding that the creation was kidnapped by partygoers at Glemaud's and taken all over town that evening. "I'm always using geometry in my sketches. Triangle shapes are at the core of what I do and I love Halloween," explains Borgo of the synthesis. Of course, Halloween dressing lends itself to Borgo's signature style. "Even the girls who normally wouldn't wear a studded cuff might now."Read More »from A Cool New Way to Decorate a Pumpkin for Halloween
