70 years ago today, Christian Dior unveiled what was called "The New Look."

Wikipedia:[T]he new collection went down in fashion history as the "New Look" after the editor-in-chief of Harper's Bazaar Carmel Snow exclaimed, "It's such a new look!... It’s quite a revolution, dear Christian!"... The silhouette was characterised by a small, nipped-in waist and a full skirt falling below mid-calf length, which emphasised the bust and hips... The collection overall showcased more stereotypically feminine designs in contrast to the popular fashions of wartime...The New Look was...

Golden Globes 2019: Color was big in red carpet fashions

After last year’s #MeToo show of all-black, the color was back at the Golden Globe Awards in a big way. And there was plenty of glimmer and hardware on the red carpet, too.

These Dior Bags Are Literal Works Of Art

The idea that fashion is art — and vice versa — has been debated for eons. Some designers and visionaries will tell you fashion is made to be used, to function, thus disqualifying it from being art. And some will tell you that fashion is wearable art. No matter which side you fall on, you can always win an argument by settling on the fact that (most) fashion is meant to be digested (and enjoyed) on a cerebral level. And it's a conversation Dior's artistic director Maria Grazia Chiuri is tacklin...

Proof That Black Lipstick Isn't As Scary As You Think

Most of us refer to the adage "black goes with everything" when talking about clothing because, well, it does. But slap an onyx hue onto your lips and all of a sudden you're deemed "scary," "daring," or "unapproachable." Well, we're here to prove the haters wrong. In fact, if you ask us, the same fashion trick applies to makeup, too."I love matte black lipstick, such a bold and arrogant shade, [it] frames every word that leaves my mouth," says Lydia Pang, daily black lipstick-wearer and creativ...

Celebrating Haute Couture, Dior Takes Bold Approach With New Collections

Celebrating “haute couture as an antidote to fast fashion,” this year’s Christian Dior couture show was held at Paris’ Musée Rodin. The collection was showcased inside a large white cube amidst beds of roses as guests entered the museum. The show notes asked, “Is it possible to celebrate haute couture while also offering a critical reading of it?” Dior artistic director Maria Grazia Chiuri said of the show, “L’atelier is a space of the mind but also a real space.

30 Photos Of Jackie O. From The Early Days Of American Street Style

If ever there were a more iconic and stylish first lady than Michelle Obama, it was Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. Always one to dissociate the politics from her fashion, she was legendary for her approach to dressing under an entire nation's magnifying glass. Simply: If she liked it, she had to have it. And so it'd go that, despite being scrutinized for her spending habits, Onassis and her style were emulated in retailers and magazines across the country.While Onassis was given a budget of $50,00...

Welcoming spring at Echigo Hillside Park

When we were living in Dubai, the only chance we had to see real tulips was inside a lobby of a five star hotel. Dubai is awesome like that, if you can’t get to the real flowers, they bring it in. These flowers are imported from far flung countries and handled with so much care so we desert dwellers could enjoy looking at it like they were freshly picked. So our kids – they have seen tulips that were picked and put in a vase but not the tulips growing from the ground! One of the best things ab...
