Karl Lagerfeld once said, "Sweatpants are a sign of defeat." And although I agree with this style legend regarding most things, I just can't adhere to this statement. Growing up in the era of velour sweatsuits and harem pants, I've seen my fair share of athletic gear gone wrong, but I'll be the first to admit that I'll fall for a comfy-cute cotton pant pretty fast. Now, I may wear my slouchy sweats with boots and leather jackets, but our favorite designers and street-style stars have proven that there's plenty of ways to dress up your cozywear, whether it be with a pair of pumps, a cool leather jacket, or some bling. And if you don't believe me, I have some proof...
Rita Ora (above) has been killin' the style game lately, and I happen to be a big fan of how she rocks athletic wear from street to stage, especially in this neon getup. Fierce.

Getty Images It's no surprise to fashion followers, Gisele Bundchen is the highest-paid supermodel in the world. According to Forbes, the beachy waved Brazilian made a whopping $42 million (no, that's not a typo) last year.
Gisele's hefty paycheck is mainly due to her merchandising deals with Ipanema flip-flops, a lingerie collection, and several accessories lines, according to Forbes.

But I think it's interesting to see who else is on the coveted list of top-paid models. Street-style sensation and Victoria's Secret Angel Miranda Kerr came in second, earning $7.2 million. She also runs her own beauty line, Kora Organics, and is the face of Mango, Lipton, and the airline Quantas.
Miranda's friend Adriana Lima nabbed the third spot on the Forbes list, earning $6 million last year. Adriana's name is practically synonymous with Victoria's Secret now (she's been an Angel since 2000), but she's also had endorsement deals

It's becoming a thing now for brands to release their ad campaigns via social media instead of the traditional methods, like Oscar de la Renta did with their fall ads on Instagram. It's different, and it creates buzz. Now J.Crew is throwing their hat into the ring (a Panama hat? a floral baseball cap?) by pushing their September style guide onto Pinterest before releasing it anywhere else.
It makes sense for the brand, since their style guides' perfectly eclectic, meticulously mixed outfits-sequin skirts and plaid button-downs! baseball caps and shift dresses!-always rank high among Pinterest's most popular. But it's also good for pinners, who are not only able to see the images first but also able to shop the products before they're available in stores or online, tomorrow, August 21.
All they have to do is spot something in one of the pins that they like and then place an order with one of J.Crew's personal stylists. (Details on how to do so, of course, areRead More »from J.Crew Leaked Their September Style Guide on Pinterest

If a salesperson tells me the purse I've been repeatedly posing with in front of the mirror (over the shoulder, then two hands on one handle, followed by crook of my arm, rinse and repeat) is the perfect weekday/going-out/whatever bag, it's hard not to roll my eyes. Really? The perfect bag? Such things don't exist! Let's take my work days, for instance: sometimes I need extra room to accommodate my sneakers and spandex for evening sessions at the gym. But whenever I'm running straight from my desk to drinks and dinner, I'd like to carry something smaller. Bulky totes look pretty silly hanging on the backs of bar chairs.
I don't subscribe to owning just one clutch for parties, either, or spend every weekend with the same crossbody slung across my chest. Life's just too unpredictable for such a limited selection; it's better to have a few sizes on hand for every situation. Then, if my last-minute decision to squeeze in a KIND bar (because what if they aren'tRead More »from Stuffed to the Gills: Handbags that Can Fit Whatever You're Carrying

Adidas x Raf Simons Ozweego 2, $390; barneys.com
Adidas is known for their edgy collaborations with brands like Jeremy Scott and Opening Ceremony. Now comes a footwear collection with Raf Simons which, having debuted at the designer's fall 2013 runway show, just hit stores. Simons revisited a popular '90s running series, the Ozweego 2 model, but added his own spin with new handsome colorways. And here's the best part-it's unisex. If it's good enough for A$AP Rocky-who was spotted sporting them back in January-it's good enough for me.

I love a good trend as much as the next girl, but I still needed the very basic wardrobe staples to mix-and-match in a cohesive, organized, well-edited closet. Out went the well-worn rejects, the college stragglers, the clothes that defined a person I used to be. And then instead of buying more of the same, I made a list of everything I was lacking. If I came across an item on that list, I'd buy it. If not, I waited it out. So in that spirit, I put together a guide of versatile Fall basics that can serve as the basis of an entire wardrobe. Although it's generally believed that fashion basics should be of the best quality you can afford - they're supposed to last! - I know $175 on jeans and $200 on a dress isn't exactly reasonable for a lot us (myself included). That's why everything on this list is under $100, with most being under $50.

Naomi Watts in character on the set of While discussing her transformation into Princess Diana last summer, actress Naomi Watts revealed that there were moments on the set of Oliver Hirschbiegel's Diana biopic when she felt the "presence" of the late People's Princess. Now, in a new interview, the Oscar-nominated actress goes into more detail about her spiritual connection and slight obsession with the late royal, who happens to be this month's V.F. cover star.
"There were definitely moments when I felt Diana's presence-I dreamed about her a lot, too, and that's a first," Watts recalled in an interview with the Mail. "I kept wondering to myself: 'Would she have liked it?' So I found myself constantly asking for her permission to carry on. I had saturated myself with Diana and her life and I felt this enormous responsibility of playing this iconic woman."
It has previously been reported that Watts wore dresses from Diana's own wardrobe, studied with a voice coach to mimic her voice, worked to emulate her body

The turban headband/scarf trend is everywhere right now. I'm not complaining - it's one of my favorite looks! They are perfect for those days when the top of your bangs are getting oily but the rest of your hair still looks fabulous (that happens to you too, right?). They look great with your hair up or down, straight or wavy! I looked for one at a few stores recently but I couldn't find one that I liked-most of them were flimsy and just looked like a little silky puff on top of my head. So, I took matters into my own hands and just made one! It was quick and easy to make, but the best part was it cost me less than $2! And now I have them in all my favorite colors and prints, for a fraction of the price.

While it's really thrilling to catch another glimpse of royal baby George Alexander in the just released photo below, we're more preoccupied with how amazing his mother, Kate Middleton, looks. Her skin is glowy, her hair is glossy and, most importantly, her huge smile is truly genuine. Motherhood really suits her. (As does that shade of wineberry-everyone with K-Mid's coloring needs to order something in the same hue, STAT!)

Maternal bliss aside, another reason the Duchess looks so relaxed and happy in this idyllic family portrait is because the picture was taken not by a team of professionals but by her father, Michael Middleton, on her family's estate in Bucklebury, West Berkshire. She and her new son, husband and Lupo (that adorable black cocker spaniel to the left), have been spending a lot of time there recently to for some post-birth R&R before moving home. We
