- 7 hours ago | CommentsPantone may have named radiant orchid as the official color of 2014, but plain old gray has proven to be the most abundant color of the decade thus far. A new article in the Guardian points to the rising sales and popularity of all things gray, from T-shirts to underwear to designer fashion. Typically, the key trends of each decade come to light around halfway through, notes the publication, and it's a safe bet to call heather, slate, dove, gunmetal, ash, and perhaps 50 other shades of gray the "it" color of the '10s. Why gray? It's extremely versatile, it's flattering on every skin tone, and it's a go-to hue during times of recession. "From a psychological standpoint, there is the idea that gray – the color of granite, rock and stone – is very stable," Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of color analysts for Pantone told the paper. But safe doesn't mean boring. Here are 12 great ways to wear gray this season. By Joanna Douglas, Yahoo Shine Senior Fashion and Beauty Editor
- 3 hours ago | CommentsBy: Ivy Jacobson for TheKnot.com There's just no other way to put this: Jenny McCarthy's engagement ring is pretty darn spectacular. The View cohost announced her engagement to actor Donnie Wahlberg on the show yesterday, and said that her son, Evan, was involved in helping Donnie propose by carrying the ring to her. However, it's a wonder that he didn't drop it, since the massive yellow sapphire sparkler clocks in at over 10 carats!
"The band is 18-karat white gold although you can't see the band because it's covered with diamonds. We did a custom basket for the sapphire. There is a row of diamonds around the center and from the side view there is a custom made gallery of diamonds," says the ring's designer, Daniel Arik, to E!.

A recent topic that has the Cut office divided: Are skinny jeans on their way out? The slim silhouette - made popular by male rock stars, Hedi Slimane, and Kate Moss - has arguably hit a tipping point.
But no matter where you stand on skinny jeans, the '90s are undeniably back, and with them a relaxed, non-stretch denim silhouette (to wear with your white sneakers or pool slides).
Scott Morrison, founder and designer of 3x1, explains: "There's something extremely sexy about a woman who wears non-skinny jeans. In my lifetime, the classic definition of a 'gorgeous girl in jeans' was Brooke Shields, Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista, Cindy Crawford, Claudia Schiffer, and Christy Turlington; all of [whom] wore classic 100 percent cotton or comfort-stretch denims in the '90s and most of 2000s. Straight legs, flares, and boyfriend jeans made from non-superstretch denims are all a bit looser than the modern skinny because they have to be, in order to fit correctly."
Skinny-jean zealots will surely bemoan the demise of their second skin, but a loosened-up style of jean can actually be perfect for the warmer months. Click through the slideshow below to see 12 pairs of relaxed denim for spring, from "cool-mom" jeans to "girlfriend" silhouettes.

The French manicure is back-and it's looking cooler than ever. But instead of sticking with classic white tips (yawn), why not try a bright, unexpected color for spring, like pastel pink or baby blue? The best part is that if you're as obsessed with all those pretty spring nail polishes as we are, this updated French mani won't limit you to just one color. In the tutorial above, our friends at Beverly Hills nail salon Olive & June incorporate both pink and blue hues in a "double Frenchie" nail art look. We love that it's sophisticated enough for Easter dinner, but still trendy and cute enough for a night out.
Plus, you'll be amazed at how simple it is to DIY this style. Click through above for a step-by-step guide Olive & June created just for Lucky readers, and check out their Instagram for more inspiration!

If you're anything like us, you've got a drawer filled with favorite swimwear from seasons past, ranging anywhere from tie-dyed tops to color blocked bottoms. Well, get this: Those patterned pieces can play a major part in helping you stand out from the crowd this season...in a whole new way. Instead of wearing one straight-from-the-store bikini, we're all about mixing and matching different tops and bottoms to create a unique-to-you look. Not super confident in your print-pairing? Create a cool connection by choosing a common color way or motif.
For example, the micro-print on a Basta Surf top is the perfect pint-size match for bold sea foam green stripes from Target. Tropical florals in varying colors from Pret-a-Surf and Rosa Swim show how to double up on one design, as do spotty separates from Guess and BCA. Of course, we wouldn't expect you to take our word for it-click through to see our favorite 10 bikini pairings for yourself!

Spring 2015 Bridal Fashion Week offered up countless exciting options for wedding dresses: Off-the-shoulder sleeves, crop tops, slinky sheath silhouettes, and, one of our favorite trends, totally unique backs.
The idea behind a statement wedding dress back seems like a no-brainer. As a bride walks down the ceremony aisle, it gives wedding guests something gorgeous to look at (in addition to a veil or train). It also provides a divine counterpart to plunging V-neck gowns and adds intrigue to what might otherwise be an understated design from the front. Last season, we noticed a proliferation of open backs framed with lace. It was a simply stunning keyhole style that was re-imagined in this season's new collections, with fashion houses taking embellished back views to the next level. We were dazzled by backs featuring illusion netting, tulle flowers, sparkly beading, decadent appliqués, and more. Even the understated offerings, like this elegant Carolina Herrera creation, felt completely novel. The gown has sophisticated and bold silk straps that create a visual treat, especially when paired with that dreamy tulle train.
Other dresses featured striking designs that are slightly more friendly to undergarments. For instance, Nicole Miller whipped up a gown replete with a back that resembles rows of diamond necklaces. It's a dramatic look that doesn't compromise the need for a bra - fashionable and functional.

"I don't mind a parasite," Humphrey Bogart quipped in Casablanca. "I object to a cut-rate one." You get the sense, throughout his career in the movies, that he might say the same thing about suits. Among the most beloved film stars of all time, Bogart remains one of the most legendarily well-dressed, too, his style on screen and off as iconic as anything else about him. This week Warner Bros is putting out a deluxe Blu-ray box set called The Best of Bogart, a collection that includes four of his best-known films and, naturally, boasts a picture of Bogie on the cover looking as sharp as ever in his classic white tux. To celebrate the occasion we thought we'd take a look back through Bogart's career in film and fashion to see what he can teach today's modern man about pulling off that timeless look.

- Wed, Apr 16, 2014 3:56 PM EDT | CommentsThe 8-month-old Prince George, currently on a three-week tour of Australia and New Zealand with parents Kate Middleton and Prince William, deplaned an Australian Air Force jet in Sydney on Wednesday and promptly created a fashion frenzy since his powder blue embroidered cotton Annafie romper evoked nostalgia for a baby Prince William, who wore a similar outfit in 1983. The romper has reportedly already sold out on the retailer's website. But matching clothes aren't where the similarities end — check out these father-son comparisons in baby photos. —By Elise Sole

Coachella's first weekend is now but a distant, dusty memory-and in just a few days, Weekend 2 festivities will begin, bringing over 100,000 people back to the Indio desert for 72 hours' worth of dancing, drinking and selfie-snapping. Hold on-a large number of arguably crazy people coming together to party, take pictures and dress up in odd outfits? That sounds an awful lot like fashion week!
Truly, aside from the obvious parallels between this pair of hyped-up events-both Coachella and NYFW boast incredible music, for instance-the two have an awful lot in common. From the social media struggles to the restroom dilemmas to the challenge of balancing shows with parties, click through above for 15 reasons why Coachella and fashion week are essentially the exact same event-just on opposite coasts.
