Odina Surf, worn by Richárde aka. Nicole RussinDescribe Tim Burton's work in a few words: sexy, dark, high glam, retro-cinematic, colorful, glamorous and a bit of punk rock gothic. High fashion print publication editorials are often inspired by Burton, a director who inspires me personally as a girl who wants to eventually make my own movies, and as a model directing my own work nowadays, as I was in this Alice in Wonderland style shoot. Now, how come so few editors make use of eco-friendly clothing, accessories and swimwear? For some reason, many people, magazine editors I love included, declared long ago, "Eco-friendly fashion is not chic, nor worth a second glance." Recycled materials do not mean swimsuits that actually look like Whole Foods paper bags.
Odina Surf, worn by Richárde aka. Nicole RussinEver since i began eating vegetarian, I love the idea of saving the environment through small, blink and you miss it lifestyle choices like where I get my clothing. The problem is, not very many apparel providers make attractive clothing, much less swimsuits. I was overjoyed

Remember Anya Ayoung Chee from Project Runway Season 9? You know, the Trinidad native that had only four months of sewing experience prior to entering the competition, yet came out on top as the winner? Well since the season ended last year she has been hard at work doing what she does best and conjuring up quite a bit of buzz around her new Spring/Summer collection.
Making her rounds at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week events across the globe Anya showed her "Carnival of Color" SS '13 collection in both New York City and Cape Town. Filled with bold prints, vibrant colors, and flowy fabrics the line was much like the mix of clean and whimsical pieces we all grew fond of during her season of Project Runway. And with a self described "sexy, easy, and island" aesthetic, we expected nothing less from the 29 year-old former beauty queen. Not to mention the collection featured a number of wearable looks that any woman would love to own- particularly theRead More »from Project Runway Winner Anya Ayoung Chee’s S/S 2013 Collection

Black Friday shopping is not for the timid, weak or unprepared. However, intense "doorbuster" stampedes aside, the savings are out there-if you know where to find them. So this year, between turkey roasting and pie baking, be sure plan your post-Thanksgiving spree. We've boiled down the process to five simple steps:
1.) Make a shopping list and do your research.
Once you make a list, you can narrow your sale search to specific locations. Electronics are often the most sought-after devices on Black Friday, so if you're looking for an HDTV or smart phone, you'll probably be camping out in a parking lot.

Like Starbucks peppermint mochas or department store window decorations, the tacky Christmas sweater is a telltale sign the holidays are upon us. Oversized sweaters emblazoned with dancing reindeers or smiling snowmen have been beloved by grandmas and hipsters for years now (the hipsters wear them ironically, of course). But only recently has the tacky Christmas sweater forayed into high fashion.
Yes, now you can get a designer tacky Christmas sweater, made by high fashion label Meadham Kirkchoff, for a mere $1,395. On Net-a-Porter.com the sweater is referred to as a "metallic-embroidered knit." The website explains the inspiration for the sweater was taken from retro, 1960s-era wrapping paper. Really? Retro wrapping paper? At least give credit to all the tacky Christmas sweater-wearing grannies out there that were clearly the inspiration for this "metallic-embroidered knit."

We may have had a run of sunny, beautiful days recently (hello again, 70-degree weekends!), but make no mistake - the season of snow, slush, and rain is just around the corner. And, since most bosses steadfastly refuse to accept "It's cold and gross out" as a legit reason to skip work, that means months of trudging around in less-than-ideal conditions.
While slippery, slushy streets are no place for your delicate stilettos or beloved platform wedges, you can step out in some genuinely chic, supremely practical winter boots this year. We know this, because we went out and found a bevy of 'em. So, go ahead: Try on a new pair of toasty, timeless boots that combine practicality with grown-up good looks. Take that, Old Man Winter.

Style bible Vogue has just released its annual Best Dressed list, and only one pop star made it into the top ten. The lucky lady is none other than Solange Knowles, Brooklyn It Girl and, of course, Bey's little sis. Solange has flirted with fashion lots over the past year, from attending countless red-carpet events to going as J.Crew creative director Jenna Lyons' date to the CFDA Fashion Awards (a grown-up, Vogue-approved version of prom, otherwise known as fashion's Oscars) to DJing designer Diane von Furstenberg's Fashion's Night Out party. Oh, and she also dabbled in modeling as the face of Madewell. Now, she's been officially minted a Style Icon. It's about time. Solange generally looks great all the time (how annoying, right?) but she really turned it on this year. Here, her 15 best looks from 2012. Look and learn ladies, look and learn.Read More »from 8 Standout Solange Style Moments in Honor of Her Vogue Best-Dressed Status

Venus Williams is a fierce competitor, and, at first glance, the over-6-foot-tall tennis champion can seem pretty intimidating. But up close, sitting inside the living room of a suite she designed at the InterContinental Miami, the Olympic medalist and tennis star proves to be poised, well spoken, and surprisingly mellow, which is admirable considering the bullets on her impressive résumé: over 60 combined single and double titles, four Olympic gold medals, a successful sportswear line, EleVen, and an interior design firm, V Starr Interiors, to boot.
And, although Williams' demeanor is guarded, it's obvious, with her boisterous laugh and wide, winning smile, that this power woman has more than one ambitious bone in her body. We caught up with the West Palm Beach resident last night at the unveiling of her most recent project, the InterContinental Miami - where she redesigned two presidential suites, six executive suites, and the 29th floor club
