  • Jennifer Aniston's New Short Hair (and Her On-Set Secret Weapon)

    Katherine Bernard

    Jennifer Aniston's new cropped 'doJennifer Aniston's new cropped 'doIf Jennifer Aniston's beauty track record has taught us anything (see "The Rachel"), it's that the actress isn't afraid of taking the occasional hair risk. Just this weekend, she revealed that she had cut off more than six inches of her honey-colored hair with the help of longtime hairstylist Chris McMillan the night before. "I actually don't have any red carpets coming up. This is truly just for me!" says Aniston-who recently finished promoting director Daniel Schechter's Life of Crime (out next year) at the Toronto International Film Festival-about her swingy new jaw-grazing length. As a co-owner of Living Proof, the breakthrough beauty brand dedicated to eradicating frizz and reducing breakage, she's no stranger to a good hair day, although she admits to taking a low maintenance approach. "The best thing about Living Proof is that you don't have to wash your hair," she says of finding herself able to stretch out the time between regular shampoos. "It makes your

  • Mara Hoffman Launches a Wedding Dress Collection

    Alexandra Macon

    "In the past, I've made a couple of custom wedding dresses for special friends [like jewelry designer Pamela Love] who I felt confident I could make feel beautiful on such an important day," explains designer Mara Hoffman. "Eventually, I decided I wanted to do the same thing for my customers, too." And that's how Hoffman, who's known for her colorful bathing suits and flirty summer dresses, started designing a bridal collection. That said, "My bride probably isn't someone who will spend a year and a half planning what she's going to wear," says Hoffman, who designed her own eggshell white charmeuse dress with friend, Richard Ruiz, and beaded it in the days leading up to the ceremony. "I imagine her running off to Tulum, to the desert, or getting married under a canopy." In other words, like Hoffman, she's a free spirit, which makes the launch of this collection very well-timed as it seems everyone from Love to interior designer Asia Baker to Tatiana Santo Domingo has

  • The Rise of the Ballerina Top Knot

    The rise of the ballerina bunThe rise of the ballerina bunIf there is any question whether the extreme top knot bun has emerged as fashion's latest hair obsession, one need only look at Céline's fall 2013 campaign. In the series of images by Juergen Teller, model Daria Werbowy wears her hair piled high on her head-braided and wound tight in one shot, cinched with an oversize white bow in another.

    Leave it to Phoebe Philo, a designer whose cool-girl instincts have rarely steered her wrong, to embrace the look this season-and she's not the only one experiencing top knot mania of late. Street style fixtures Chelsea Leyland and Dree Hemingway have been spotted wearing polished-yet-easy incarnations of the look to parties on a regular basis, while red carpet events have turned up sleeker iterations (see Dakota Fanning's neat, glossy updo at the recent Toronto Film Festival).

  • How to Get Kate Middleton's Style from the Royal Christening

    Alexandra Macon




    The Duchess of Cambridge has clearly found her label for any major life event: Alexander McQueen. For the christening of her and the Duke of Cambridge's three-month-old son, Prince George, today, the Duchess wore a cream look designed by McQueen's Sarah Burton, with complementary fascinator by Jane Taylor. The third in line to the British throne was baptized in a replica of the Honiton lace gown made for Queen Victoria's eldest daughter, also named Victoria, in 1841. The replica for today's baptism was made by the Queen's couturier Angela Kelly.



    In keeping with their style of bucking tradition, the Duke and Duchess opted not to have the ceremony at Buckingham Palace (where royal christenings are typically held), choosing instead a location with significant sentimental value, the Chapel Royal at St. James's Palace, where Prince William and Prince Harry paid respects to their mother, Princess Diana, before her funeral in 1997. The Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most

  • 5 Wedding Tips for Kim Kardashian and Kanye West

    Patricia Garcia




    The news broke last night that Kanye West proposed to girlfriend Kim Kardashian on her 33rd birthday in San Francisco, where West rented out the entire the Giants' baseball park and popped the question with a 15K ring and 50-piece orchestra in front of family and friends. And while there are still no details or a date set for the wedding, it's never too early to start planning. Here, we give the future bride five planning tips.

  • London It Girls: Cressida Bonas and Cara Delevingne

    Sarah Mower

    What does it take to be British Girl of the Year in 2013? Dark brows, blonde hair, a funny grin, aristo genes, and a first name beginning with C. Yes, we're hardly the first to point out the uncanny number of similarities between Cara Delevingne and Cressida Bonas. One keeps fashion agog, and the other keeps Prince Harry happy. Cara's 21 and Cressy's 24, but so what? These two headline-grabbers are virtually body doubles and taste twins.

    As much as Cara scrubs up beautifully when required to model any number of überfashion collections (or to bring Times Square to a screeching halt as she did while jumping atop a yellow cab while shooting a DKNY commercial ), and Cressy will sally forth in her own quirkily appropriate long skirts and jackets for a society wedding (thus making fellow guests in short dresses look instantly frumpy), what truly unites these girls is their love of a beanie, skinny jean, biker jacket, one-piece, and chunky ankle boot. It's the kind of grunge which

  • 5 Halloween Costumes You Can Wear to Work

    Patricia Garcia




    This year, Halloween falls on a Thursday, which means most of us have to work a 9-to-5 before heading out into the night. To save you from dashing home to make a quick change after you punch out, or picking up a pair of cat ears from a nearby Ricky's, we've come up with five costume ideas that you can actually wear to work. These looks are all office-appropriate and, with the addition of a few iconic pieces, will take you from a breakfast meeting to a midnight masquerade. Whether it's Margot Tenenbaum's fur coat or Wednesday Addams punctuating her Valentino-esque uniform with a pair of Charlotte Olympia spiderweb flats, these add-ons are anything but afterthoughts.

  • 5 New Wedding Dress Trends to Love



    Just when you thought brides were getting riskier, along come the bridal runway shows reinforcing the idea that when it comes to the big day, most women stick to tradition. But this season (that would be fall 2014), there are some new ideas brewing. For instance, remember how after the Duchess of Cambridge walked down the aisle in a long-sleeved lace Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen dress, everyone was covering their arms? Well, now labels including Carolina Herrera, Oscar de la Renta, and Marchesa are suggesting a little more freedom of movement with cap sleeves. And though there's always been a lot of talk about brides choosing to wear pink, the shocking shade offered by Vera Wang is nothing short of gutsy, and nearly every designer introduced a version of gray, or "smoke," as it's being referred to, as the new alternative to white. Also, consider hemlines. Herrera showed only tea-length dresses, reflecting a new playfulness among the newly married. Because when it comes to a

  • Kate Winslet's Best Red Carpet Looks: A Study in Classic Dressing



    There is something to be said about knowing what, exactly, looks good on you. In the noisy, exciting, ever-changing world of fashion, it is a strategy often thrown aside by those eager to pursue more adventurous alleys, but one wisely followed by best-dressed staple (and November cover girl) Kate Winslet. A perusal of her red carpet looks dating back to when she took the bow of the Titanic with Leonardo DiCaprio shows a unshakable pattern of elegance, from a lovely litany of long evening dresses in classic shades to one very smart-looking white suit. The end result of such well-informed sartorial discipline? She's the one woman on the red carpet you can never seem to forget.
