Club Monaco just released its Fall lookbook filled with two-toned tweed blazers, printed trousers, and plenty of pretty blouses to take you into the chillier months ahead. The collection, inspired by Linda McCartney’s Life in Photographs , the leading male characters in the Silent Generation , and block-print patterns from Jewish-French artist Sonia Delaunay, focused on tailored pieces with a casual twist via pajama-like cropped suit sets, multicolored silk striped dresses, and graphic-printed separates tempered with chic blazers and tweed jackets. Read below for our favorite looks, then click the slideshow to see Club Monaco 's complete Fall collection. This green silk maxi dress is perfect for pairing with ankle boots in the warmer months, then layered with a cozy turtleneck and blazer when it gets colder outside. We love the idea of styling louche printed trousers with a streamlined blouse and sleek jewels for a day at the office.
We got our first taste of Madewell 's Fall 2012 back in April, but if ever there was a way to prove the cool factor in this collection, it's in Madewell's perfectly styled Fall lookbook. Mastering the art of effortless layers, girl-meets-boy appeal, and the style quirks of traditional Fall clothing turned on its head, Madewell offers up the season's essentials in bold hues, clever prints (like a leopard-print grandpa cardigan), and staple denim. It's the best kind of tomboy dressing — pastel tulip skirts paired with plaid button-downs and field boots — and a woodsier edge, thanks to cozy knit hats, lumberjack-inspired jackets, and cheeky wool sweaters.
Ms. Clifford, 21, a recent college graduate and an art photographer, recalled that as far back as high school she was keen to trade the wan aesthetic that defined her crowd for something with a bit more ... oomph. She found it one day while sifting through a trash container, where she unearthed a dog-eared 1950s Playboy. Inside were photographs of showing off the trademark cherry-tone lips and little-girl bangs that made her the most popular pinup of her day. “I know that back in the ’50s, her images were porno material, but they’re classy now,” Ms.
After yesterday's press preview of the Met Costume Institute's new exhibit, "Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations," we got our own private tour with Andrew Bolton, who co-curated the show with Harold Koda. He wasn't coy about some of the exhibit's hairier aspects, admitting that "initially Miuccia was rather baffled by the pairing of Schiaparelli and herself." To write the scripts for the fictional "conversations" between the two designers, Bolton spent months combing through Schiaparelli's autobiography, interviewing Miuccia Prada in Milan, and sifting through both designers' archives. He told us all about the process of putting the show together and how it differs from last year's record-breaking McQueen exhibit; you can also see a video tour of the galleries.

Don't pretend you didn't spend every weekend at the mall in your younger years! After all, what's more of a hallmark of youth culture than shopping-center adventures? Photographer and filmmaker Michael Galinsky was 20 years old in 1989 when he and a friend decided to spend six weeks driving across the country, capturing images of mall life. They started in New York and ended in North Carolina.
With New York Fashion Week drawing to a close, we thought we’d hand out a few unofficial awards to recap the week of mayhem and highlight what stood out in and around the collections. Given the branded whirlwind the event’s become, we decided to focus back on the art of it all, lest anyone forgot their proverbial way in the cab between Milk and Cafe Gitane . With comparisons to similarly inspiring work from our other favorite design discipline, we’ve given the genius some context, illustrating that the new guard is taking fashion to another level entirely. From Prabal Gurung ’s mind blowing show to the best street style moments, the week has solidly confirmed that New York City is the place to be if you’re a young designer today. Click through to see our unconventional round up of the week’s best and brightest, and then let us know in the comments what collections, events, or escapades made an impact on you.

#3. There's No Such Thing as a "Regular" T-Shirt NFLShop.com Men like to use T-shirts as billboards to show everyone what their favorite band, or team, or joke is, and when they see a T-shirt with the perfect saying on it, they just need to pick a size and buy it. Women also like to make similar statements with T-shirts, but it's not that easy.

Project Runway's tenth season starts this Thursday on Lifetime, and it's an All-Star lineup . But while the designers aren't new faces, the judges, host, and mentor all are — designers Georgina Chapman and Isaac Mizrahi , model Angela Lindvall , and Marie Claire editor Joanna Coles, respectively. And while Michael, Nina, and Heidi (along with her auf's) will be missed, it's arguably Tim Gunn who we'll all shed the most tears over. Which leaves Joanna Coles stepping into the toughest spot, taking on the role of the designers' mentor.
The Top 10 Pre-Fall Collections Of 2012 By Connie Wang We know — pre-fall , what is that?
For us mere mortals, the end of the calendar year usually leads to such stirring self-reflections as, "Did I go totally broke this year?" and "Do any of my pants still fit?" But for celebrities, we imagine the scorecard is more consumed by things like “number of cleanses completed,” their ratio of bought shoes to free ones, and, of course, a tally of tabloid covers and fashion-police arrests. Sadly, we can’t help them with the state of their colons or shoe closets, but we can single out a handful of stars who can rest easy this holiday season knowing that no matter what else went awry, their wardrobe did not.
