  • Ellen Page and Alexander Skarsgard Liven Up “The East” at Sundance

    When you hear the words "morally-complicated environmental thriller" your first thought probably isn't "sexy." But Ellen Page, Brit Marling, and our future husband Alexander Skarsgard insist that though "The East," their new film, is an ethically convoluted tale dealing with environmental terrorists and the dirty corporations take down, it has plenty of sexy-time. And with more two-faced characters than "The Dark Knight," we can bet on some drastic costume changes--we can't wait to see them!

Let's start with the good: Southwestern prints, statement-making accessories, and leather detailing were among some of our favorite trends that we spotted on the ladies of Park City, while clashing colors and over-layering served as some festival-goers' fashion downfall.

  • Best and Worst Beauty Looks of The Globes

    The Thread hit the Golden Globes red carpet to capture the best and worst hair and makeup choices of the night. We loved the smouldering eyes and Veronica Lake-esque soft waves that many actresses sported, but some stars' looks were not so on point. From Sofia Vergara’s perfect blow out and berry-kissed lips to Jessica Chastain’s beauty flop, the evening was packed with choices we loved and hated. Who do you think rocked the best hair and makeup of the night?

  • When Your Clothes Send The Wrong Message

    You know the saying, "dress for success!" Well, believe it or not, that age-old cliche has a ring of truth. Whether you're at work or at play, your clothing choices send a message about you--are you sending the one you want? Stay tuned and find out on this episode of The Thread!

    Do you: stick to the same, drab neutrals? If you rarely if ever switch up your Plain Jane look, you're telling the world that you much prefer to blend in or that you're in a fashion rut. No one ever said having some fun with your style wasn't allowed!
