Teen Vogue fashion news director Jane Keltner de Valle was in attendance, and took note of the dress, as she recognized it somehow. Hours later she Tweeted a photo of the dress side-by-side next to a very similar vintage dress she styled for the magazine when giving an intern a makeover for the October 2007 issue. That original dress is from the NYC vintage shop What Goes Around Comes Around that. Zoe knocked off the very dress she once styled!
We know Rachel Zoe is a vintage clothing fanatic, but we're shocked that she would so blatantly copy a dress she has been photographed using before. Refinery29 reached out to the then-intern from the shoot, Elana Fishman, who said: "it was a vintage piece that Rachel bought and wore herself after the shoot. She originally got it at What Comes Around Goes Around and wore it

Matching shirts! Fannypacks! Ill-fitting shorts! They must be tourists. Photo via GadlingOne travel writer surveyed 3,400 people from 99 countries about the most terribly outfitted tourists. The overwhelming majority of them (41.9%) said American tourists dressed the worst. THE WORST IN THE WORLD! How sad.Read More »from International survey says American tourists are worst dressed
We think there's something about traveling that makes Americans dress worse than they every would normally. First of all, many people wear pajamas, sweatpants, or warm-up pants to the airport to be comfy on their flight. They may not wear these in their every day life, but consider this OK for traveling because they're in "vacation mode." Once they arrive at their destination, they change into ill-fitting shorts, socks with sandals, matching t-shirts, and fannypacks for a walk around town. Back home would you ever wear matching t-shirts with your whole family? Of course not. And if it's a tropical vacation, Americans may opt for the Hawaiian shirt, thinking they'll fit right in. (They're wrong.) Throw on a goofy hat, stick a map in their hands, and a camera strap around

Miss Delaware Kayla Martell is bald and beautiful / photo via Pageant NewsWe used to think beauty pageant contestants were all slight variations of the same woman-pretty, thin, great hair, brilliant smile, funny talent, and a desire for world peace. OK, that's generalizing a bit, but most of these ladies have been trained from an early age to conform to the standards of the pageant arena, and thus hiding many of the unique and awesome things about themselves. We're happy to report that perhaps the standards of pageant girls are changing.Read More »from Bald beauty queen competes for Miss America, while Miss England will deploy for Afghanistan
Miss Delaware Kayla Martell will be competing in this week's Miss America competition wearing wigs. The 22-year-old suffers from alopecia areata, an autoimmune disorder that causes sufferers to lose their hair and can leave them completely bald. Martell has had no hair since she was a child, and competed in the Miss Delaware pageant twice without a wig. The third time she wore a wig and won the state title. "I decided to use my crown to show that it is time we redefine what it really means to be beautiful," Martell told ABC

Three new polishes from Essie's upcoming spring collection, available in February.You could say I'm a nail polish junkie. Getting new bottles mailed to me constantly doesn't help, but my nail habit started young, and friends still ask me to paint their nails for them on occasion. After all, I have a steady hand and about 150 bottles to choose from. Last week I received Essie's new French Affair nail polish collection (available in stores in February), and I have already given myself manicures with the three shades pictured at right: Nice Is Nice, Coat Azure, and French Affair. I don't think I'll ever tire of trying out new colors or using polish to reflect my mood.Read More »from Nail polish is not only recession-proof, itâ€™s taking over the beauty counter
Essie are the fairy godmothers of nails, currently delivering over 260 mani-pedis every year, and they certainly know how to keep up with trends. They enlisted IRI, an independent research firm, and received survey info from A&U and Shopper Insights to sum up the latest stats on nail polish. Now I have proof that I'm not the only one with nail polish addiction. In fact, I've learned that not only is nail

ThinkstockLiposuction is one of the most desired surgeries amongst women, but it's also potentially one of the most dangerous. Plus, have you ever seen seen one of those reality shows where the patient is getting lipo with that horrible vacuum hose thing? Ugh, so gross. So we spend our days doing squats and lunges and rubbing fancy creams on our thighs in hopes of getting rid of bumps and bulges, of which, let's face facts, are going nowhere. Or are they?Read More »from Fat freezing! The affordable, painless alternative to liposuction
Recently the FDA approved a technique called CoolSculpting by Zeltiq which promises to freeze off your fat. This cryolipolysis (aka fat-freezing) machine targets hips, thighs, bellies, arms, and any other place you want slimmed and chills it down to a point where fat cells are damaged. These lipocyte cells die off in the next few weeks and are broken down by your liver and lymphatic system.
According to an article in W, Santa Monica dermatologist Ava Shamban has used the CoolSculpting treatment on over 700 patients so far and charges around
If you were worried about Ralph Lauren overspending on his collection of fancy vintage cars, don't. / Getty ImagesWe often hear about which retail chains are doing well during the recession, but just how much do the top fashion CEOs make? Millions. Women's Wear Daily ran down a list of the top 10 earners in 2010, and the amounts are jarring. Take a look at the year's highest salaries, which include bonuses, stock options and other compensations.
- Michael Jeffries, Abercrombie and Fitch: $36.3 Million. And to think, all we got was a popped collar and a case of bedbugs.
- Glen Senk, Urban Outfitters: $29.9 Million. Urban has beat the recession, but in order to see the money himself, Senk must stay with the company till 2015.
- Ralph Lauren, Polo Ralph Lauren: $27.7 Million. People refer to the whole style as "polo" shirts. This guy is loaded.
- Roger Farah, Polo Ralph Lauren: $19.3 Million. He's only the COO and president, but he makes more than most CEOs. Not bad!
- James O'Donnell, American Eagle Outfitters: $17.9 Million. Remember when Aerie stores launched? There's already 137 of
