Jessica Alba is giving you a place to stuff all your eco-friendly diapers and organic baby food. The Honest Company founder is adding a selection of handbags to her repertoire. She has released a three-style range of vegan leather carryalls, boasting deep pockets and plenty of convenient compartments, all in one sleek and chic package.
The Honest Everything Tote, Carryall Satchel and City Backpack are some of the newest additions to The Honest Company’s collection, each one ideal for a mom on-the-go. They’re certainly not your average baby bags. They come in very stylish black and elephant gray hues and look more like an accessory for a cool girl who carries her entire life in her bag, rather than something for busy moms. Seriously, where were these bags when we were in high school juggling our textbooks, SAT word flashcards and iPods in one supremely disorganized tote? (more…)
Men’s Fashion Week is making its debut on the New York stage this summer and the CFDA held an exclusive breakfast meeting about the affair yesterday, which according to WWD, made it clear that there is still a lot of work to do.
The CFDA is already considering alternate dates for the showcase next year so that it doesn’t fall a full week before the major men’s trade shows like it will this year. The idea is to ensure that show-goers can attend Men’s Fashion Week and the trade shows without having to spend extra days in New York City in between.
In addition to needing another major sponsor or two, there is also the issue of getting more designers on the schedule for shows and presentations. At least 14 brands have pledged their commitment to the event, though not all the designers will be taking the runway. A few of the men’s brands who have agreed to participate (like John Varvatos and Calvin Klein) won’t actually be showing their collections.
Obviously, New York Fashion Week: Men’s has a few kinks to work out, but that is to be expected for a new project of this magnitude. Hopefully, it will eventually become a true destination for American men’s fashion.
In a sea of recycled cover stars, you’ve got to hand it to magazines that constantly push the boundaries and deliver original content time and time again. Case in point: Jalouse‘s April 2015 cover featuring social-media mavens Hailey Baldwin and Lucky Blue Smith which spread like wildfire across our forums. The pair pose for the trendy French glossy clad in head-to-toe Versace for an 80s-themed cover.
Unfortunately, the majority of our forum members weren’t fans. “Yeah, this isn’t their best. Not a good image at all,” TeeVanity bemoaned within seconds of the cover surfacing.
“Hailey looks so messy and greasy and Blue looks strung out and it’s actually a pretty (unintentionally) hilarious shot,” shared lelaid soon after.
“OMG YES. Lol. I love Hailey and she looks lovely but… ELLEN AND PORTIA!” replied ThatGuyPaul.
Also not showing much enthusiasm was nanker_pledge: “I like the concept, but the hair and makeup are really awful, and their facial expression is ridiculous. This obsession that Jalouse has developed with socialites/daughters-of is getting really boring and redundant.”
“Too much shine and hair product, they look dirty imo… but I guess it goes hand in hand with the 80s layout so it works,” described kokobombon.
Will you be in a hurry to collect your copy of Jalouse‘s April issue? Add your own two cents here.
The Entourage boys are back and of course, they’re bringing a generous helping of debauchery with them. Warner Bros. has released a new trailer for the forthcoming Doug Ellin-directed film.
Adrian Grenier (Vince), Jeremy Piven (Ari), Kevin Dillon (Drama), Jerry Ferrara (Turtle) and Kevin Connolly (E) reunite onscreen and this time, Ari’s got a film project – that Vince wants to direct. But besides the usual suspects, the movie appears to be chock-full of celebrity cameos. Haley Joel Osment, Nina Agdal, Emily Ratajkowski, Mark Wahlberg and more will all make appearances in the film.
Get psyched for the movie (opening June 5) and check out the trailer above.
January Jones is showing off her acting range in the latest edition of Violet Grey‘s The Violet Files magazine. The publication tapped the star of Mad Men (now in its final season) to pose for a series of “beauty tests,” in which she brings to life six characters through the magic of hair, makeup and, of course, a good amount of smizing.
Jones transforms into a “barely-there beauty” with no clothes and little makeup, a hip berry-lipped gallery girl, a sleek and chic boss-type character and a few other arresting personas. Jones also opens up about some of her struggles growing up, noting that it wasn’t until she began to blossom into the conventionally attractive beauty she is today that she began to become more self-conscious. Jones wants to use her platform to encourage young girls to feel confident in themselves, no matter their age or what they look like.
“It actually wasn’t until I got into high school and started to get quote-unquote pretty that my confidence started to disappear,” she explains. “I want to give the message that girls can be proud and self-assured no matter what funky haircut they have.”
See Jones’ transformations in the slideshow below. (more…)
