For the second year, Vestiaire Collective, a site that serves as a safe platform to buy and sell authentic pre-owned luxury items, is hosting an annual charity sale of "partywear" pieces, which happily coincides with the start of holiday dress shopping. Celebrities and designers alike have donated high-end coveted pieces starting at £100 (or, roughly $162) from their personal collections, with proceeds going to their charity of choice. Scoop up Rachel Weisz's pink Joseph dress for £250 (or, $404) or Gemma Arterton's leather Armani dress for £750 (or, $1,212), both benefiting children's charity NSPCC. "We are thrilled that so many leading lights in the fashion world have come out to support our annual charity initiative," said Fanny Moizant, UK Managing Director of the site, in a statement. "This year we expect to raise thousands for charities from Barnardo's to NSPCC." Talk about feel-good fashion!

The convergence of Hanukkah and Thanksgiving: It last happened in 1888 and it won't happen again for another 77,798 years. For many Jewish Americans, this is not a trivial occasion, but rather a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to celebrate two holidays-one quintessentially American, the other wholly Jewish-at once. Here, ten designers, bloggers, and more share their creative approach to this most unlikely of events.Read More »from Thanksgivukkah: 10 Tips to Celebrate the Dual Holiday

The quickest way to a crop top is to just crop a top, take scissors to it and go. Easy, right? Well, as it turns out, the quickest way to deep personal regret is also to crop a top, take scissors to it and go. With shortened shirts all over the spring runways at Alexander Wang, Rodarte, Rag & Bone, and more, it's tempting to test-drive the look now, when a flash of skin under a blazer under a cozy overcoat is a fun wink at winter. But while anyone can cut their clothes, it takes an eye and honed instincts to do it so that it looks like the result of a Savile Row-level tailor, not a bottle of red wine crossed with a revisit of Christina Aguilera's "Genie in a Bottle" video.

Here at R29 HQ, we love a good coat sale. In our books, a get-it-before-it's-gone deal simply can't be beat. And, fortunately, this season is one of the most wonderful times of the year for savings. So, to help weather the chill, we've culled 8 gorgeous toppers - and they're all on sale. If that's not a li'l pre-holiday magic, we don't know what is.
From puffers and patterns to trenches and chic, woolly statement pieces, these coats are just begging for opportunities to get off their hangers. And, that's where you come in. Snag these babies before someone else does - because we have a feeling they won't be in stock much longer. Besides, just think of all the compliments you'll receive when you visit with the relatives next Thursday. For us, that's motivation enough. The sales? Well, they're just icing on the cake whipped cream on the pumpkin pie.Read More »from 8 Gorgeous Winter Coats — ALL on Sale!

Port and Rosenman met while she was starring in MTV's The City. Rosenman was an associate producer on the show, and even when the series ended, the two kept in touch. Like Katy Perry and John Mayer, the two had crushes on one another before the real romance even began. A source told Us Weekly earlier this year that, "She is super comfortable with him and in love."

Beyoncé Knowles & Blue Ivy Carter: Big Hair, Don't Care
Even now that she's ditched the hair extensions, Beyoncé is the queen of the pop star mane. Her hair has as much range as her vocals, and we can already see Baby Blue following suit with her adorable "halo" of springy curls. And it's just a matter of time before Blue Ivy picks up another of her mother's fashion habits: wearing Tom Ford heels.

GettyThink of the Little Black Dress as your sartorial BFF, because it's literally always there for you. The wardrobe mainstay is never not in style, ever-so versatile, and unfailingly flattering. It'll come in especially handy when you've got countless holiday celebrations on your social calendar because you can change the entire vibe in a snap-just slip on different shoes and swap your accessories. Translation: you'll never have to worry about those but-I-have-nothing-to-wear-and-everything's-awful freakouts again.
It's super simple to create an entire outfit around your favorite LBD. In fact, the hardest part is probably picking out the perfect one in the first place. And while you shouldn't empty your wallet on this essential piece, it's worth investing in something you love so you can wear it again and again-especially after you see these three totally different, equally inspiring star takes on the dress.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire hits theaters tomorrow, and while some people are already lining up outside theaters, others are still wondering, What's all the fuss? For any fashion followers who fall into that latter category, we propose another way to enjoy the film: through its sartorial inventiveness. Some characters, such as Elizabeth Banks's Effie, are decked out in Alexander McQueen, while others, like Jennifer Lawrence, are in outfits that can burst into flames. There's even a quasi fashion show in the form of an opening ceremony, where contestants enter into the stadium in chariots wearing couture-like creations. Each participant (known as a "tribute") is paired with a stylist (hello, Lenny Kravitz!) tasked with designing a look representative of each individual district. And with themes like Power, Luxury, and Lumber, the creative possibilities are endless.
With that in mind, we wondered, if we lived in a dystopian future-minus the wholeRead More »from Hunger Games High Fashion
