    Somalia-born beauty Iman broke on to the modelling scene in the late '70s and quickly became one of the most powerful and successful supermodels of all time.

  • Most Outrageous Style at Fashion Week

  • Who Took The Grammys Dress Code Seriously And Who Did Not?

    People were buzzing about the proposed dress code for the 2013 Grammys almost as much as they were about Rihanna taking Chris Brown as her date. For the Grammys—notoriously the most risk-taking of all the red carpets—a dress code was a tall order. Many attendees, like Carly Rae Jepsen and Florence Welch, complied, helping to make this year’s red carpet one of the classiest, and most high-fashion yet. And some, like Kelly Rowland and J.Lo, pushed the boundaries, using see-through mesh and baring a whole leg, respectively. Watch our video below and weigh in on who played by the rules, and who blurred the lines.

  • Stars Remember Whitney Houston at Clive Davis' Pre-Grammy Bash

    Every year, mega-producer and legendary music industry executive Clive Davis holds THE Pre-Grammys party--one that's usually a star-studded kick-off to the biggest night in music. Now, a year after the tragic death of beloved singer Whitney Houston, the annual event takes a moment to remember the icon. The Thread was there on the red carpet, asking music's brightest stars when they first fell in love with Houston's talents, and who they think will be the most-buzzed about nominee at the 55th Annual Grammy Awards. Who do you think will be the big winner this evening?

  • What a difference a year makes for Carly Rae Jepsen. The petite, 27-year-old singer watched the 2012 Grammy Awards show from the comfort of her home, having just released "Call Me Maybe," and this year she's nominated for Song of The Year and Best Pop Solo Performance. Over the course of twelve months, everyone from Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, Katy Perry and John Franco, to at least five college sports teams and the 2012 Olympic swim team had parodied the song. And isn't imitation the sincerest form of flattery? We had the pleasure of catching up with Carly Rae smack-dab in the middle of her insane pre-Grammy schedule to chat about her impending first time at the Grammys, how it felt to be nominated, and most importantly, what she couldn't wait to wear for her big Grammy red carpet debut.

  • Grammys Fashion Preview

    While the Grammys celebrate the best and brightest in the music industry each year, they also serve as major style inspiration. From red carpet fashion hits to chart-topping hair and beauty, Fashion Police expert and Thread host Jay Manuel is bringing us an exclusive sneak peek at the styles to expect at this years' show.

    Side braids - If hairstyles were charted this year, they'd be up there with "Call Me Maybe." Keep the look from going little kid and feeling instead more romantic and whimsical with well-executed plaits. Pair the style with vibrant eyes in an icy jewel tone and keep lips neutral for a look that sings.

    - A metallic mini in this year's "it" fabric is short and youthful--a statement worth making at the Grammys and beyond! Test drive one with a lower back and flirty pleats and be sure to pile on standout accessories! Metallic heels finish off the look and play up those legs!
