Gallery Mondays: Béatrice Coron’s “Elegant”

NYFW SS17 is in full swing! It’s so much fun just walking around Manhattan during New York Fashion Week and seeing all the fashionable people walking about from venue to venue between shows.

I got off the A train at 104 Street last week on the way to my parents’ house and I remembered Béatrice Coron’s stainless steel cutout “Elegant” from the installation On the Right Track. It’s like the woman in the cutout just walked off the runway wearing that gorgeous gown.

Enjoy the rest of NYFW!

Fan Art Fridays: Tim Gunn

I woke up this morning to find Tim Gunn trending on social media because of this piece he wrote for the Washington Post about fashion designers refusing to make clothes that fit American women.

It becomes a problem when consumers see how a piece of clothing looks on a model of a certain height and weight but then the sizing of the garment is capped so that only some of us can enjoy wearing it. That doesn’t seem fair.

It’s 2016. Body shaming should be a thing of the past. You’d think clothing designers would have realized that by now, but they still won’t get with the program.

I decided to feature Tim Gunn for this week’s Fan Art Fridays at the height of NYFW to applaud his stance on the issue. I’m glad he took the time to write this. Tim Gunn looks deep in thought in this vector by ZNECO on Deviant Art.

Wardrobe Wednesdays: Julianne Hough in West Hollywood

Julianne Hough stepped out in West Hollywood on Thursday sans makeup wearing a cute denim and the biggest smile plastered across her face.

Could her pearly whites shine any brighter?

She paired the romper with tan colored d’Orsay flats and Victoria Beckham sunglasses. I think we can all agree that Julianne pulls off the “slip on and go” kind of look pretty well.

Below are the original sunglasses Julianne is wearing (marked with *), as well as some alternative pieces to complete the look.

Romper:

1. Target, $20.98

2. Gap, $34.99

Sunglasses:

3. Nordstrom Rack, $19.97

4. Barneys, $950.00 *

Shoes:

5. Modcloth, $59.99

6. J.Crew Factory, $62.50

Seems like the birthday boy is pumping some “Adrenaline” for his special day, as his new track was released today.

“Adrenaline” is a collaboration with up-and-coming producers Grey. They’re so mysterious. I want to know more about them…

In honor of Zedd’s birthday, I’ve selected this incredible piece of fan art I found on Instagram by sirenmonkeyofficial. It really shows off his “True Colors.”

Enjoy “Adrenaline” below and view the original fan art here.

 

August Favorites: RIP Gene Wilder, Pink Dolphin & Taylor Swift in Jury Duty

august faves

I think this is the first time in a very long time that my monthly favorites are going up on the first day of the new month. I know, you don’t have to tell me—you’re so proud of me.

Is it me or was August 2016 kind of awesome?! Since there aren’t any holidays in August, it usually drags on but this year I didn’t feel it. Maybe it’s because I’m living in Manhattan now…

Anyway, here are my favorites in pop culture and entertainment for the month of August:

Favorite News Articles

1. RIP Gene Wilder. I’ll still never understand how one person could be so much coolness.

2. Pink dolphin. Um, somebody’s been getting too lucky in those waters…

3. Taylor Swift had jury duty. I actually never thought about the fact that celebs have to do that too. Wow.

4. Matt Damon’s man bun. Excuse me, what is this?!

Favorite Music

1. “My Things” by Trails and Ways. It sucks that Hannah and Emma aren’t in the band anymore but they still sound good with the new female vocals!

2. “Shelter” by Madeon and Porter Robinson. I just absolutely adore that sentimental quivering violin at the end of the track. Freaking superb collab from those two!

3. “Dive Deep” by Andrew Belle. Gettin’ frisky there, Andrew!
