  • Posh Vs. Sporty Sneakers: Which Side Are You On?

    by VoguePhotographed by Craig McDean, Vogue, June 2012Photographed by Craig McDean, Vogue, June 2012

    Amongst the swarm of stiletto-wearing editors, buyers, and models on the streets of Paris, New York, London, and Milan this season, a new breed of fashion creature has emerged: the sneaker freak. You'll have seen her superluxe kicks captured on street-style blogs-studded Louboutin high-tops, snakeskin Lanvin plimsolls, and perhaps most ubiquitous of all, the Isabel Marant Betty, a shoe that comes with a built-in wedge. That fabulous take on athleticism isn't for everyone, however, and these days sneaker purists who favor bona-fide sports shoes by the likes of Nike and Adidas are taking a stand. With those distinct and opposing value systems in mind, Vogue asked two sneakerheads from opposite sides of the fence to make their case: Which camp are you in?

  • Vogue 100 Under $100: Unbelievable Summer Finds at the Perfect Price

    Edited by Meredith Melling Burke, Vogue



    The sun is shining, the birds are singing, and the temperature is slowly (but surely) rising, which all adds up to one thing: It's time to find the pieces that will make up your spring and summer wardrobes-and all without emptying your bank account. But there is a lot to consider when shopping, namely location: Will you be spending most of your summer in the city? Or sitting by the shore? Regardless of your answer-and, if you said both, even better-we have vetted the sandals, bikinis, dresses, and jewelry you'll need to stylishly survive a new season. Best of all, every single item is under $100. The next installment of 100 Under $100 won't appear until it's time to get ready for the cooler climes of fall, so take advantage of this twice-a-year list now.

  • The Rooney Mara Effect Hits Vogue

    Rooney Mania-a yen for skin the color of cream, and shiny, ink-black hair, preferably worn with short cropped bangs and a healthy dose of attitude-swept over the fall collections, with lookalikes popping up everywhere from Calvin Klein Collection and Antonio Berardi to Versace and Marni. The Oscars hit in the midst of the Milan collections, with Mara fanning the flames on the red carpet in white Givenchy Couture. Like the rest of the world, I had been enamored with the actress who played Stieg Larsson's menacingly alluring heroine-specifically, her hair. In the mood for change-I've worn the same shoulder-scraping cut for years-I decided to take a chance and really go for it. And when I say go for it, I mean with Danilo, the legendary hairstylist, and creator of Rooney's cut-on, and off-screen.

  • High-End Healing: The New Health Kicks of the Season

    By Chioma Nnadi, Vogue



    Besides the incessant snapping of camera shutters, the one noise you're likely to hear in the front row of New York Fashion Week is the faint sound of editors sniffling into their handkerchiefs. Commonly known as the fashion flu, it's a virus that spreads like wildfire across the crowded rooms of shows, cocktail parties, and after-hours fashion fetes. Most health-conscious attendees will tell you they have a remedy stashed in their handbag at all times; a secret elixir, hangover cure, or herbal supplement they swear is the one thing that keeps them standing through the grueling monthlong round of shows. A bit like the passing trends on the runway, there is always a new miracle cure to obsess over. Whether you believe in their energy-boosting effects or just like the sweet taste of a placebo, here are five new things that fashion folk will be counting on to keep them healthy this season.

  • Expert Tips and Tools for Organizing Your Life

    By Patricia Garcia, Vogue


    We've all been there. We begin the year by making resolutions for 2012-we'll exercise three times a week, we'll finally clean that junk drawer, we'll start eating healthier-but it's the end of the month, and not only have you not color-coordinated your wardrobe, but all that shiny resolve seems to have been discarded amid the pile of clutter in your closet.


    Although reports indicate that most people break their New Year's resolutions before the end of January-there is plenty of good news. For starters, there are definitely available elliptical machines at your gym this week, and, more importantly, help is out there, you don't need to feel overwhelmed by the mess at home. We reached out to experts Molly Graves and Ashley Murphy from Neat Method, a company that helps clutter-prone Chanel hoarders bring some order back into their lives. The cofounders, who met while shopping in San Francisco, got the idea for the service after they soon discovered they shared

  • Steal of the Month: Super Cheap, but Still Chic

    Edited by Meredith Melling Burke, Vogue



    "I love the way Jason Wu cuts clothes. It's classic and ladylike," says Alexa Chung in February's Steal of the Month column by Esther Adams, in which Norman Jean Roy photographed the host of 24 Hour Catwalk in a modern, gamine piece from Jason Wu's new collection for Target. Wearing a $40 shirtdress from the capsule collection, Chung epitomizes the idea that you don't need to wear high-priced clothes in order to be considered a high-fashion icon. And so, in honor of the upcoming release of Jason Wu for Target, we bring you ten stylish finds, all under $100, and all proving that personality, not price, always makes for winning style.

  • The Most Popular Winter Pedicure Shades

    By Georgie Stergakos, Vogue



    Though your feet may currently be cocooned inside a pair of woolly tights, winter is still no time to neglect your toes-after all, you never know when a peep-toed evening out might present itself, not to mention a last-minute long-weekend escape to sunnier shores. Vogue asked the top nail spas coast to coast for the season's most popular polishes-and shades of burgundy and bordeaux, longtime winter staples, came up a distinct minority. Instead, hazy purples and blues are having a big moment-in demand from Philadelphia to Seattle-while at TenOverTen in New York, pale pink is making an unexpected comeback. Here, the most wanted pedicure shades across the country.

  • How to Shop EBay like an Editor

    Photographed by Jeremy AllenPhotographed by Jeremy AllenBy Chioma Nnadi, Vogue

    Vogue Market Editor Jessica Sailer isn't one to buy on impulse. She's the kind of shopper who considers each investment with extra special care. "My rule has always been to put the thing I love on hold at the store, and then I have at least until the end of the day to figure out just how much I want it," she says. "If I'm still thinking about a dress hours later, then I know it was meant to be."

    It's partly why the frenzy of an online auction has never appealed to Sailer. According to her, it's too easy to get sucked in: How do you gauge your need for something new without being consumed by the thrill of the chase?

    Indeed, with the sheer volume of product on sites like eBay, from discounted deadstock to vintage collectibles to the counterfeit red herrings, the experience has become increasingly overwhelming in more ways than one. But when it comes to tracking down the looks of seasons past-that handbag, dress, or
