My All-Time Favourite Dress Trend Is Back for Another Year

My love for denim dresses started back in 2009 thanks to Stella McCartney's S/S 10 collection. The British designer had created a button-down summer dress in a light-wash jean fabric and a skirt in the same finish and waist-nipping fit. I fell for them both—hard. I was just starting out as a fashion assistant and had a chance to wear a sample of the skirt for a shoot, but alas, it was a fleeting moment, and I could not afford to keep it in my wardrobe.Stella McCartney Spring 2010. However, I knew, deep down, that I'd be able to find a good iteration from one of the many East London vintage stores I used to frequent of a weekend. And that made total sense because McCartney did, indeed, base these styles upon denim pieces her mother Linda had worn in the '70s. Influencer Madelynn Furlong ...

Kamala Harris Wore a Liquid Sequin Cocktail Dress by Yet Another Emerging Black Designer

After wearing a gorgeous purple Christopher John Rogers outfit to the inauguration, Vice President Kamala Harris attended the Celebrating America TV special wearing a chic black ensemble by another emerging Black designer. For the event, Kamala opted for a tuxedo coat and shimmery sequined dress by designer Sergio Hudson. In fact, former first lady Michelle Obama wore a plum outfit by the same designer during the inauguration earlier that afternoon. Kamala dazzled in the floor-length silk tuxedo coat and cocktail dress, and she added an 18k yellow gold and diamond David Yurman American flag lapel pin. She also accessorized with rings and earrings by Irene Neuwirth, as well as black Jimmy Choo Rory pumps. Sergio told Harper's Bazaar, "We want to be uplifted right now . . . We kept the s...

Jill Biden Represents Every State and Her Love For the Environment With This Floral Dress

The flowers on Dr. Jill Biden's custom Gabriela Hearst look should be recognized as much more than just a pretty detail. When our first lady attended the evening Inauguration celebration at the White House, Celebrating America, she tapped a designer she's worn (and recycled!) before. Gabriela Hearst created the fringe dress she wore to Joe's first presidential debate in 2020. But the specially made ivory cashmere coat, silk wool dress, leather gloves, and matching face mask she selected to ring in such a historical day is perhaps even more notable. You see, Hearst did not just embroider bouquets across all these separates because they're beautiful, but to represent the federal flowers from every state in the US. Plus, Hearst runs a sustainable company, committed to design processes tha...

How The Crown subtly nodded to The Revenge dress

Even though season 4 of The Crown has ended, we’re still obsessing over Princess Diana’s outfits in it, and how they compared to the real deal. And although we’ll have to wait for the fifth and final season of the show to see Prince Charles and Princess Diana’s divorce play out, we’ve seen a lot of foreshadowing. So much so that the show’s costume designer Amy Roberts has already nodded to Lady Di’s infamous Revenge Dress. As you know, the royal wore the daring, off-the-shoulder LBD for an outing to the Serpentine gallery in London on the very night Prince Charles admitted of his affair on national TV. This ensured all the headlines the next day were about how fabulous she looked. Roberts told Bustle, ‘It was absolute defiance. Because [th...

Meghan Markle apparently had this brief from the royal family for her wedding dress

Everyone has an opinion when it comes to Meghan Markle’s wedding dress, from why it didn’t fit, to wondering if the Queen was surprised she wore a white dress even though she had previously been married (antiquated, I know). Well it turns out people might have been creating drama where there was none, because according to an etiquette expert, she wouldn’t have had a specific brief regarding her wedding dress. Of course, it’s custom for the Queen to approve a dress design, but she doesn’t request any specific rules around it. Myka Meier, Beaumont Etiquette’s founder, who was trained by a former member of the Queen’s household, told Elle.com, that the dress was entirely Meghan’s choice, and that there was nothing wrong with the fit. She said...

We've Been Dreaming About Zendaya's Cutout Dress Since We Saw the Malcolm & Marie Trailer

We finally have a first look at Netflix's Malcolm & Marie, which follows a director (John David Washington) and his girlfriend (Zendaya) whose relationship is tested after they return home from the premiere of his latest project and await the critical response to it. In the almost three-minute trailer, we see the characters struggle through an unspoken transgression on Malcolm's part, which Marie cannot get over. We also see Zendaya have a real fashion moment, wearing a gorgeous red-carpet-ready gown. She wears a stunning crinkle dress that features keyhole cutouts and thin straps. In fact, we could totally see Zendaya wear this metallic number on a red carpet in real life! Her actual stylist, Law Roach, also styled the her looks in the movie. The black-and-white film was written, ...

1 Dress, 5 Ways: How I'm Wearing This Perfect Arket Dress

If you made a list of everything you would ideally want out of a new purchase, I would hazard a guess that longevity is up there with versatility and design. It certainly is for me, anyway. One of the key considerations for time-tested style is the ability to adapt your clothing to life's shifting demands, and of course the variability of our wonderful British weather. The ultimate aim is to have a wardrobe which is made up of these fashion workhorses, however, in my experience there tend to be certain items that you stumble across that particularly ace their cost-per-wear test.This winter that item was my knitted dress from Arket. I know, I never would have guessed that a knitted dress could be so versatile, and if I'm honest it took me a while to discover new and original ways to styl...

Selena Gomez's Pink Rodarte Dress Is the Heart and Soul of Her "De Una Vez" Music Video

Selena Gomez has released her new Spanish song "De Una Vez," accompanied by a music video for us to get lost in. Gomez is clearly excited about this new chapter of her career, tweeting, "This is the beginning of something I've wanted to explore for so long. I hope you love it as much as I do." So it makes sense she'd call in a styling team she could trust to bring this romantic story to life. Shirley Kurata and Lauren Levin teamed up for the project, selecting a spring 2021 Rodarte dress with silk flowers from the brand to match. The look was complete with Daniela Villegas Libertad opal earrings, which are a symbol for staying true to yourself and helped to paint the picture of healing - that's exactly what this song is about. Even though this isn't the type of video where Selena grace...

J Lo's White Gown in Elle Magazine Only Reminds Us of 1 Thing: A Wedding Dress

Jennifer Lopez covers Elle's February 2021 issue in the most glamorous set of outfits, from cutout bodysuits to gowns by the likes of Dior and Christopher John Rogers - the latter being a white, full-skirted number with a plunging neckline that easily evokes images of a wedding gown. Speaking of which, Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez have postponed their wedding twice: "We had planned what we really, really wanted to do, [but] I don't know if we'll be able to re-create that. We canceled it, and since then we haven't really talked about it. There's no rush. We want to do it right when we can do it," J Lo said in her interview. So, something tells us she's still open to the the idea of finding a bridal look and hasn't locked one in just yet. Lopez glows throughout the photo series, pho...
