Stella McCartney always has a huge presence at the MET Gala. She’s there as a designer, of course, but beyond that, Stella is exactly Anna’s kind of person (famous parents, British, wealthy). Full Story

Maybe the moment has happened already and I just haven’t caught up to it yet. There’s so much on social media it’s been impossible to keep writing and see every possible photo, every Instagram story, every Snapchat video. As it is, I just sent Duana a GLORIOUS video for a post she just finished and she texted me back in all-caps because she needs to edit the article. Full Story

“So So So… so this is what it feels like to match wits with someone at your level, what the hell is the catch?” Look, it’s not like I’m above throwing a Hamilton quote on the top of a piece for no reason—but in this case it’s not no reason. There’s something about that Angelica line that popped into my head as soon as I saw Allison Williams Full Story

Why no, it is not about the men, even more than usual. That is, Jaden Smith—but he’s, like, doing Performance Haircuts, and even the most adventurous dudes basically come in the same thing, except Rami Malek, who looks like he shops at the same clothing store as Curious George’s Man With The Yellow Hat. Full Story

No matter what, there is Mandy Moore. In good times and in bad, certainly as long as I’ve been staying up late to write about stuff and long before that, there has been Mandy Moore. Yet I was almost perversely proud when the shots came out and people started tweeting at each other: “Is… that Mandy Moore?” It was, and it is. Full Story

Someone was going to show up in a classic Comme Des Garcons signature piece – the kind of piece that isn’t conventionally “wearable” but that is unmistakably Rei Kawakubo.
