ICYMI: Five things we loved this week
Below are five pieces of online fashion content that we loved this week.
Trendy teens: Tyler McCall at Fashionista talked to some top stylists to get the scoop on styling perhaps the most difficult category of celebs to dress – A-list teens. You’d think dressing underage starlets would be easy, because they’re willing to take fashion risks and they’re often super slim. But according to their stylists, dressing teens is like walking a tightrope – you fear making them look too sexy, too young, or too mature, because if you get it wrong, you know the press is going to talk about it. Another thing we never thought of is that the demographic for most high-end brands is not girls south of 20, so as stylist Tara Swennen says, “sometimes it can be challenging to convince a designer that a 19-year-old up-and-comer is exactly who they want in their brand to try to help sell an outfit to a 35-year-old.”
“Fashion for your face”: That’s the tagline for H&M’s newly revamped beauty line, which launches this fall, and the retailer has posted the first pictures of its new products on its Instagram account. Expect minimalist packaging and tons of gorgeous lipstick and nail polish colours.
Ten years of style: We collected 30 photos spanning 10 years and analyzed how starlet Vanessa Hudgens’ sense of style has evolved.
This is what $56,559 looks like: That’s not a typo. Model/actress Rosie Huntington-Whiteley cruised through JFK airport rocking a $4,990 jacket, a $2,995 bag and a $22,800 necklace – yikes! You could buy a new car – a NICE new car – for the same price as Rosie’s off-day outfit. We can understand luxury, but this is just ridiculous.
Bogus beauty: We absolutely LOVE getting the insider scoop on anything fashion and beauty related, so we were thrilled by StyleCaster’s story on the most-returned products at Sephora. They chatted with real Sephora employees to find out which products don’t work. What we learned: beware of NARS All-Day Luminous Weightless Foundation (“it doesn’t sit well on 99% of people”) and Too-Faced bronzers – not blendable.
