One of our favorite “Girls“, Lena Dunham’s edgy-chic do on the cover of ELLE magazine’s annual Women in TV issue is poised to reaching for the bleach, vibrant color and scissors. Sporting a simple choppy coif, that amazing 90′s color job and a sharp cat-eye, Dunham looks equal parts glamorous and every gal — which is exactly her appeal. Take a peak at some of the editorial snaps inside, featuring goods by haute designers Christian Louboutin, Dolce & Gabbana, and Saint Laurent by Hedi Slimane and you’ll see exactly how the cool kids do. And congrats on the cover, Lena!read more
This is typically the time of year when you become acutely aware of all of your Grandma’s awesomeness — her cooking, her ability to trick out a holiday home like nobodies business, her immaculate and no-nonsense way of calling you out on your nonsense — grandmas rock. Guess who else loves grandmas? Dolce & Gabbana.
D & G is embracing grandma culture with a new ad spot featuring several glorious abuelas (grandmas), bullfighters, flamenco and all-things-gloriusly Spanish. Think grandmas in gilded floral crowns, real-life toreador José Maria Manzanares, a pro dancer, a guitar player (and soundtrack) all flanking models Bianca Balti, Vittoria Ceretti, Irina Sharapova and Blanca Padilla and you’ll get the idea. Now think grandmas again. ‘Cause they’re just so freakin’ great.
The campaign, shot by Domenico Dolce is a celebration of the label’s new Spring/Summer ’15 collection inspired by the old traditions and lore of Spain and Sicily. The grandmothers in the ad represent ”the respect and love the Mediterranean cultures harbour towards the older generation,” and hey, shouldn’t we all be doing that anyway? Here are some shots from the campaign — and feel free to sit down with your Grandma and watch the ad in it’s entirety here.
One thing is certain… George Clooney has impeccable taste in women. His new bride can add another slash to her already very impressive business card which should read: Amal Alamuddin—lawyer, human rights activist, author and style star. The new Mrs. Clooney aced her extravagant 4-day wedding in Venice, wearing the likes of Dolce & Gabbana, Stella McCartney, and Alexander McQueen. We haven’t even seen THE Oscar de la Renta bridal dress yet, but the rest of the photos that have surfaced have solidified Amal as an impeccably chic tastemaker. Posh Beauty extends a big congratulations to Mr. & Mrs. Clooney.
It seems that Barneys pop cultural take on the holidays didn’t end with last year’s Lady Gaga’s Workshop.
This year the retail giant takes on Disney, and while Minnie is certainly trending, her look at Barneys Electric Holiday retail extravaganza is simply startling — the once fun and full-figured Mouse, and her friends Daisy Duck and Goofy have gotten a full out makeover.
Electric Holiday 2012 is set to include a host of Disney/ Barneys collaborative looks and products including their famous window installations, a 3D light show, and a short film featuring and ultra-elegant Minnie and friends (Goofy, Daisy Duck and Mickey) walking the Parisian runways dressed in the likes of Lanvin, Balenciaga, Dolce & Gabbana and Balmain. Stay tuned for details on the full-extent of the Disney meets Barneys pairing, which is set for a big reveal on November 14.read more
