Rose Byrne Rehashes “Bad” Teenage Style Memories as Lucky Magazine’s November Cover Girl


A photo posted by Lucky Magazine (@luckymagazine) on

Lucky has tapped our very own Rose Byrne as its cover girl for November 2014, with the Australian actress reliving some bad style memories in her interview with the magazine. Hard to fathom, we know, but apparently Rose hasn’t always had a knack for fashion.

“I was desperately trying to be a hippie,” Rose told Lucky. “Oh, I went through some pretty bad phases growing up.” Referring to her days as a 13-year-old, Rose said, “I used to wear really bad Doc Martens boots—that looked terrible on me—and green crochet dresses, braid my hair and go to Lenny Kravitz concerts.”

”Another styling trick involved pairing tie-dye T-shirts with bike shorts and high-top Reeboks,” she added. “I don’t know what was going on there.” We’re not sure if Rose’s teenage fashion phase was “bad,” so to speak,  but it’s just a little different to what she delivers us nowadays.

Take one step into a modern-day music festival and we don’t think there’d  be a shortage of Dr. Martens and tie-dye pieces. You were way ahead of the trends, Rose!

Oscar de la Renta Dead at 82

Sad news this evening as reports are surfacing that legendary fashion designer Oscar de la Renta has passed away at the age of 82. The designer just recently named a new creative director to his namesake label, Peter Copping, formerly of Nina Ricci, who will show his first collection for the brand in February. 

This story is still developing. De la Renta was diagnosed with cancer in 2006, though it is still unclear if that is the cause of his death.

The fashion world has lost a true talent and an icon, one of the most celebrated and prominent designers today.  

UPDATE: Oscar de la Renta’s stepdaughter and son-in-law Eliza and Alex Bolen have released a handwritten statement on their website mourning the late designer. “He died exactly as he lived: with tremendous grace, great dignity, and very much on his own terms.” (more…)

Meet Tyra Banks’ New Talk Show Crew

Love her or hate her, you can’t deny that Tyra Banks knows how to make some good TV. Which is why we were so juiced to hear that the model turned mogul was returning to the airwaves with a brand-new talk show, The F.A.B. (Fun and Beautiful), slated to debut next year. Banks has said it will be less like her wildly successful Tyra Banks Show and a little bit more like The View. Of course, the obvious question is who is going to be on this panel of experts? Today, the media maven gave us a peek at the team for her next show.



DRUM ROLL! Introducing my fierce new talk show guru crew! #ChemistryOnFire…can you feel it? Comin’ at ya 2015!

Banks has tapped Yahoo Fashion director Joe Zee, model Chrissy Teigen, interior design queen Lauren Makk and YouTube DIY sensation Leah Ashley for her “new talk show guru crew.” We’re guessing they will dole out expert advice in their respective fields and that the show will have more of a lifestyle focus than just simply fashion.

Must-See! “Death Becomes Her” at the Met

Who knew mourning could be an art form? On Tuesday, October 21, the Metropolitan Museum of Art will fete Halloween the best way it knows howwith a new exhibit entitled “Death Becomes Her: A Century of Mourning Attire.” The show will highlight 30-plus pieces of 19th- and early 20th-century garments worn during bereavement. Keep your eyes out for the exhibit’s magnum opusthe grieving gowns of both Queen Victoria and Queen Alexandra.

“The predominantly black palette of mourning dramatizes the evolution of period silhouettes and the increasing absorption of fashion ideals into this most codified of etiquettes,” said Curator in Charge Harold Koda in an official press release. “The veiled widow could elicit sympathy as well as predatory male advances. As a woman of sexual experience without marital constraints, she was often imagined as a potential threat to the social order.”

This deliciously dark exhibit will be on display at the Met’s Anna Wintour Costume Center from October 21, 2014 to February 1, 2015.
