To say Joe Zee‘s a busy man would be an understatement. The editor certainly has his hands full at the helm of Yahoo’s newly-launched style website, which over the past few weeks, Zee has been steadily promoting on his social media channels. But even with all this piled on his plate, Zee’s still got the time to lend to other big projects, like his new gig as Old Navy‘s Style Ambassador, which he fêted yesterday evening.
There was plenty to do at the affair — guests sipped cocktails and nibbled on tiny hors d’oeuvres as they browsed through the space, which boasted a candy bar. Old Navy totes filled with goodies awaited those who wanted them, while there were also photo booths and even a stand where you could get stamped with a metallic flash tattoo. The event was not without the obligatory celebrity presence. A mob of camera phones let out resounding clicks as Katie Holmes, dressed in a simple button-down, jeans and black bow pumps, got a gold flash tattoo applied to the back of her neck. Hilary Rhoda also stopped by to support.
Zee has lent his sartorial sensibilities to the retailer, styling its web ads, window dressing, online videos and more. It seems Zee has really taken a shine to bringing fashion to the average American, who might not have access to sample sales or be able to justify spending $200 on a pair of premium denim. After taking the helm at Yahoo! Style, this involvement with Old Navy seems like a natural progression; bringing fashion to the masses. (more…)
In the world of cute fashion pets, it simply does not get more adorable than Choupette Lagerfeld. With apologies to Cecil Delevingne (also unfairly cute), Choupette reigns as queen of fashion industry pets who are famous in their own right. But you can call her the O.G. of cute, furry fashion companions.
Since meowing into the heart of Kaiser Karl, Choupette has gotten plenty of attention from the industry at large, partly because of her famous father, but mostly because she is just so freakin’ cute to look at. Seeing the appeal of the snowball-hued feline, Shu Uemura decided to partner with Miss Choupette and her daddy for a holiday makeup collaboration, inspired, of course, by the pretty kitty.
Now WWD has more details on the forthcoming “Shupette” collection, and surprise, it is as adorable as we thought it would be. The line will offer eyeshadow and lip palettes, false lashes, glitter powder, blush, cleansing oil and an under base mousse. Emblazoned on the packaging are drawings of Choupette, done by Karl and colored using Shu Uemura makeup products. Also on tap are nail polish, an eyelash curler, a brush set and a makeup trunk.
It is all very cute, and we’re sure Mademoiselle Choupette has plenty of approving mews to give for this range.

Nicole Kidman stepped out for the UK Gala screening of Before I Go To Sleep in London on Thursday, September 4, wearing a moss-green midi dress by Valentino. Pulled from the Fall 2014 collection, the piece stands out with its colourful sequinned butterfly embroidery.
It’s a playful choice for the 47-year-old, but the pieces still manages to look elegant with its plunging neckline, below-the-knee length and sheer sleeves. Her chest was adorned with silver and emerald-green necklaces, matching her shiny ring and drop earrings.
Nicole teamed the look with gold Christian Louboutin heels, pulled back hair and clean makeup. We think the Australian actress looks divine as usual, and not many could pull off this colour quite like Nicole.

Taylor Swift has chosen Australian label Sass & Bide for her outfit to the Deutscher Radiopreis 2014 in Hamburg, Germany. The singer pulled the top-and-skirt combo from Sass & Bide’s Fall 2013 collection, looking polished and classy for the radio awards in strictly monochrome.
In true Taylor form, this is another matchy-matchy wardrobe option for the 24-year-old. Although the outfit looks like a peplum top over a white mini, Taylor has actually teamed Sass & Bide’s cage bandeau crop top with the cage peplum skirt to create this illusion.
Black pointed-toe pumps brought the outfit together, but we wish Taylor could’ve been a little courageous with hair and makeup to take this look to the next level. We feel a slicked-back pony and a statement red lip could’ve given this outfit the edge it needed.
Everyone was over the moon when Target Australia announced it was joining forces with Missoni for its biggest partnership yet. So it’s no wonder models and TV personalities flocked to the official launch in Sydney last night, to get a sneak peek of the 220-piece collection, which spans womenswear, menswear, kids’ clothing and homewares.
Model and social media sensation Hannah Saul was in attendance, wearing Kookaïs Congo Vee Dress with contrasting leopard and floral prints. She teamed the look with a navy fold-over clutch, black pointed-toe heels and a swept-back hairdo. TV presenter Laura Csortan also sported Kookaï, opting for its black Abbey Jumpsuit with side cut-out detail.
Spring racing season is upon us, and now’s the time to start planning your fabulous fashions on the field. While putting together your outfit from head to toe can be fun, it can be gruelling to find headwear that matches your ensemble well.
There’s no need, though. Look no further than the wonderful designs of Danica Erard, who constructs custom-made designs from her home in Deniliquin, New South Wales. Lady Gaga, Rebecca Judd, Erin Holland and Kate Waterhouse are all huge fans, so we’re also completely sold on this designer too.
Danica has well and truly stirred up the millinery scene with unique pieces and modern techniques, including 3-D printing, and designs so phenomenal you’ll be wondering how your previous headwear ever sufficed. “The hat is a smile to your outfit,” says Danica, and if your wearing one of her designs, we think you’ll be grinning from ear to ear.
