Katy Perry, Katie Holmes, and More Dressing like Disney Princesses on the Red Carpet:

Katy Perry, Katie Holmes, and More Dressing like Disney Princesses on the Red Carpet:
Even celebrities aren't immune to the nostalgic pull of Disney princesses. With the world's most exquisite gowns at their disposal and stylists ready to create looks inspired by anything they desire, it's surprisingly common to see stars go back to the fairy-tale heroines who influenced our elementary-school sartorial choices (just ask North West, who's made it clear that Frozen's Elsa, not mom Kim Kardashian, is her ultimate fashion inspo). From all the princess-esque gowns we've seen on the red carpet, these are the ones we think are most like the real deal. Wearing Marchesa at the Met Gala in 2014, Katie Holmes was seriously channeling Belle's most regal moment from Beauty and the Beast. Elle Fanning copied the hue and off-the-shoulder cut of Aurora's ball gown with her Elie Saab Couture when attending the Maleficent Hollywood premiere in 2014 (the choker was even similar to the cartoon look!). Icy blue with sparkles? Like Elle, Lily James went thematic when premiering Cinderella.

When Fashion Meets Technology, You Can Wear Your Tweets Photo The Dutch fashion designer Iris van Herpen, in her 2010 collection “Crystallization,” was the first person to send a 3-D-printed haute couture garment down the runway.

Jessica Alba With Fendi’s Dotcom Bag With Custom Strap Lumpen looks a little different than your average modeling agency. Named for the term for a social outcast, Lumpen’s aim is to show the fringes of Russian society, with an online casting board that boasts intentionally unglamorous faces from across Russia. Models include a tattooed man with multiple piercings and one eye swollen shut, or a woman with a blank, glassy stare and a disheveled, frizzy hairstyle. These are not necessarily the genetic-lottery winners typically trotted out to sell toothpaste and trenchcoats, but as it turns out, the street-casted aesthetic has struck a nerve in the fashion industry: Models from the year-and-a-half-old Lumpen agency have already walked for big-time fashion houses and new upstart labels alike, including Balenciaga, Vetements, and Gosha Rubchinskiy, as well as Kenzo.

Spring 2016 Shoe Trend: Chanel Cap-Toe Slingback Street-Style Inspiration: No surprise, but we're so excited about spring and the warm-weather dressing it entails. Sunny days can usher in some trends that aren't exactly work-appropriate, but one of our favorites is so prim and polished that it's basically calling out for the Monday to Friday rotation. The cap-toe slingback, inspired by a retro look that your grandmother probably had in her closet, has been gaining sartorial steam since being the only shoe sent down Chanel's fall 2015 runway. It started popping up in street style shots immediately after and hasn't stopped since, with new iterations included in the house's current collection.

Gigi Hadid in Rihanna’s Fenty Puma Sneakers On a secluded side street in Seoul’s Cheongdam, removed from the neighborhood’s main drag, lies a glimmering jewel box of a shop that’s a full-on fashion dream: lemon yellow Vita Kin vyshyvankas, their tassels embroidered with black thread; a butter-soft Forte Couture leather jacket, the words Mr. Fringe hand-painted on the back. It’s here, at Rare Market, that an incomparably chic duo has curated a treasure trove of clothes that are changing the way Korean girls approach fashion. The day that I visit, the team is busy preparing the launch of The Volon, a line of fringed and furred bags, for which Russian street style star and entrepreneur Miroslava Duma will fly in from Moscow.

From Ancient Rome to the Coachella Festival: A Brief History of Pop-Up Architecture Ask some people, and they'll tell you that pop-up architecture is a quintessentially 21st century form of architecture, but in fact the idea goes back over 2000 years. In this article originally published on Curbed as "The Rise and Rise of Pop-Up Architecture," Marni Epstein-Mervis traces the development of pop-up architecture right from its origins in ancient Rome, analyzing how the phenomenon has transformed into what we recognize today. For five weeks in August and September 2015, street artist Banksy opened a dystopian theme park with Disney-esque castles and theme rides in the seaside town of Weston-super-Mare in southwest England. Attractions included a police van mired in the muck and goo of a forgotten cityscape, and an overturned pumpkin coach and horses with Cinderella tossed half outside of it.

Fashion’s Favorite Architect, Zaha Hadid, Dies at 65 On Thursday, futurist architect Zaha Hadid died at the age of 65. Hadid contracted bronchitis earlier during the week and suffered a sudden heart attack while being treated in the hospital. Hadid was widely considered the most famous female architect in the world, for her gravity-defying, topsy-turvy (oftentimes surreal) architecture — from a cliff- hanging museum in Italy to the London Aquatics Center for the 2012 Olympics in the United Kingdom.

Kim Kardashian West Deserves the CFDA’s Fashion Icon Award This Year Tonight at the New Museum, the Council of Fashion Designers of America will announce its 2016 CFDA Fashion Awards nominees and honorees. Contenders for womenswear, menswear, and accessory designers of the year will likely include many familiar names. Few recent cycles have gone by when Marc Jacobs, the Proenza Schouler boys, Alexander Wang, and The Row’s Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen haven’t made the short lists. The honorees list tends to be more unexpected and harder to predict, and therefore significantly more interesting.

High Times Wants to Be the Playboy of Pot In that light, the timing seems right for an underground publication once devoted to guerrilla-style cannabis advocacy to meet mainstream America head-on. Photo “We played defense for 40 years,” said Eleanora Kennedy, the widow of High Times’s former chairman, who maintains a significant interest in the company. High-End Hunting Apparel Is Killing It With Hipsters and Baby Boomers Hunting: It's not just for the Duck Dynasty set anymore. The activity so often associated with rural America is increasingly being marketed as an adventure sport, with more consumers signing up for "luxury" hunting trips and buying high-end gear and apparel. Also driving the trend is the rise of the so-called "hipster hunter"—that urbanite who's into the locavore/farm-to-table movement seeking to kill his or her own food and signing up in droves for butchering courses in New York and San Francisco. "The free-range/organic movement fits hunting and butchering your own animal to the fifth degree," said Jason Hairston, who founded upscale hunting apparel company Kuiu five years ago. Companies like Kuiu and Under Armour, which started marketing hunting apparel a decade ago, as well as traditional outdoor retailers like Bass Pro Shops and Cabela's, are primed to benefit from this phenomenon. "There's a shift within the pool of people who hunt—it's becoming a lifestyle thing.

Fringe, Raw Hem, Patchwork: Next-Level Denim Trends for Spring: Fashion Week street style has been rife with jeans this season. And, as we enter spring (aka prime denim weather), we couldn't be more thrilled. We love an exaggerated flare, a pair of cropped skinnies, and the perfect vintage straight-leg style, but it's the next-level denim that has been coming out in droves. À La Izba and Faux Stone: Moscow's Age of Wooden Architecture A total of 150 eighteenth and nineteenth century listed wooden buildings remain under protection in Moscow today. Modern city dwellers see only remnants of pre-revolution Moscow, which stayed almost entirely wooden until the early seventeenth century. This is one of the reasons why the Museum of Architecture and Kuchkovo Pole publishing house have joined forces to release a two volume set named Wooden Russia: A Glance Back From the 21st Century.
