ICYMI: Five things we loved this week
Below are five pieces of online fashion content that we loved this week.
Instant kimono: Kimono-style toppers are super trendy this spring. If you’d rather not break the bank, blogger Alexandra Grant of To Vogue or Bust provides instructions on how to fake the look using any square-shaped scarf – and who doesn’t have a ton of those kicking around? It takes about two seconds to create an instantly fresh look. Alexandra’s one of our fave bloggers; you can read our interview with her here.
Vintage Wintour: Did you know that legendary Vogue editrix Anna Wintour was the fashion editor of New York Magazine in the early eighties? The Cut, a New York Magazine blog, dug through the archives to discover what fashion solutions Anna was prescribing more than thirty years ago. Some of them are pretty hilarious – it’s nice to know even fashion-world titans aren’t immune to bouts of bad taste.
All about Amal: The subject of our Woman Crush Wednesday feature this week was human-rights lawyer Amal Clooney – yes, George’s wife. She’s much more playful with her style than you’d expect someone with such a serious career to be, yet she’s never inappropriate. We bow down!
InstaBarbie: She’s got 714,000 Instagram followers, an enviable wardrobe and a jet-setting lifestyle. No, she’s not some hot new fashion blogger you haven’t heard of – she’s Barbie! A childhood staple, Barbie’s been reinvented more times than Madonna, and her latest incarnation is all about social media. Writer Julia Rubin spoke with the people behind official Barbie Instagram account @barbiestyle; you can read the resulting feature here.
Kim K for a day: Unlike other famous people, Kim Kardashian’s not a singer or actress – so what does she actually do all day? The answer is, kind of a lot. Harper’s Bazaar spoke with the reality star about how she spends a typical day, which begins at 6:00 a.m. with a workout and ends 17 hours later, when, she says, she’s “so tired, I just pass out.”
