The Yahoo Lifestyle team has kept its eyes open for some of the possibilities, including gowns from Ralph and Russo, Giambattista Valli, and Dior.
Slogan T-shirts are a powerful political tool. They instantly say something that the wearer wants to convey, and in the Instagram-obsessed world, they provide messages that are easily shared, reposted, understood.
During Paris Fashion Week, Dior creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri unveiled her second feminist T-shirt with the slogan “Why Have There Been No Great Women Artists?”
Jennifer Lawrence’s new thriller has drawn a collective WTF from critics but the sparkling, silver gown she wore to the film’s London premiere reminded everyone why she’s true Hollywood royalty.
Nicole Kidman, currently starring in the critically-acclaimed Top of the Lake: China Girl, stunned on yet another red carpet. The ageless beauty walked the red carpet at the National Gallery of Victoria at the Dior Gala Ball held in conjunction with The House of Dior exhibition in Melbourne, Australia.
Hollywood officially has an "it" bra. Charlize Theron rocked the Dior bra for a second “Atomic Blonde” premiere. She's not the first star to show off the look.
It’s Vintage Week at Yahoo Style! In honor of our favorite environmentally friendly way to make sure you’re never wearing the same outfit as anyone else, we’re bringing you insider intel on the best vintage — what to look for, where to find it, and how to make the most money when selling yours. The red carpet is where we look for the most “aspirational” fashion — that is to say, the most outlandishly expensive and out of reach. In this, the era of the superstar stylist, it’s rare to see a true curveball on the red carpet — unless, of course, a celeb opts for vintage.

Easter-egg colors, feather-light fabrics, and florals (quelle groundbreaking). But there’s a new mood in the air for spring 2016 — one that mixes a little darkness and decadence in with all those dreamy pastels. We took this spring’s most inspiring looks out on the town — namely, to the Palm Beach-influenced Paul’s Cocktail Lounge at Roxy Hotel.
Raf Simons’s last collection for Christian Dior, SS16 collection. Photo: Getty Images Fashion is undergoing a seismic shift. Two weeks ago, Raf Simons announced he was leaving Dior; last week, Lanvin parted ways with beloved long-time designer Alber Elbaz, and earlier this season Balenciaga swapped Alexander Wang for Vetements’ Demna Gvasalia. Any editor will tell you that three makes a trend.
Striped Breton tops, pea coats, and bell bottoms all evolved from Army, Navy, and Air Force uniforms that were designed with functionality top of mind. Over the years, fashion designers have re-interpreted these garments, freeing them from their original functions while relying on their history to lend a utilitarian allure. This season’s must-have silhouette, the bomber jacket, is just one example. The nylon bomber we’re seeing everywhere this season is based on the MA-1, a design first issued in the U.S. Air Force and military around 1950. Prior to the MA-1, military men wore leather and wool shearling flight jackets (like the A-2 or the G-1, famously worn by Tom Cruise in Top Gun).
Actor Johnny Depp is the face of Dior’s new men’s fragrance. The award-winning actor’s career spans decades, but this is the first time that he will appear as the face of a men’s fragrance. The first campaign featuring the 51-year-old Depp will debut in September alongside the launch of the House of Dior’s new men’s fragrance, created by legendary perfumer François Demachy.
Exclusive: Hedi Slimane On Saint Laurent’s Rebirth, His Relationship With Yves & the Importance of Music From the moment Hedi Slimane took the creative reins at Saint Laurent in March 2012, his every move has been talked about, tweeted about, and discussed, dissected, and debated. His critics, on the other hand, continue to be scandalized by the way he has injected an aesthetic influenced by musical and youth subcultures into Yves Saint Laurent’s legacy (even though youth and freedom were essential elements of Yves’ own work in the sixties). Until now, though, one voice has been missing from the discussion: that of Slimane himself. Notoriously press shy, he has given less than a handful of interviews since he started at Saint Laurent, and even those have been guarded. In this interview, conducted over email, he talks candidly and in great detail about his strategy for Saint Laurent, his quest to bring an extraordinary level of authenticity to his clothes, and his relationship with his critics.
Watch Dior Couture’s Fall 2015 Show Space Get Built in 30 Seconds Christian Dior’s fall 2015 couture collection, which walked in Paris on July 6, was a floaty, garden party fantasy come to life — but it was the show’s vaguely psychedelic, water-color-infused set that made it truly memorable. The show space — which, really, was more like a work of art unto itself — was created by 100 dedicated individuals who worked on the structure for two full weeks leading up to the runway show.
The gowns at the Cannes Film Festival are one thing, but the jewels? The ladies of the French Riviera (even the ones imported from Hollywood) are not messing around with their jewelry.
Dior has a devoted group of girls that dress in the famed French design house's looks on red carpets all around the world.

Marion Cotillard, Jennifer Lawrence, and Natalie Portman were inducted years ago, fronting fragrance and fashion campaigns for the iconic brand. Dakota Johnson and Felicity Jones are the group's newest subscribers.

Your moisturizer’s a bit thicker and you’re not leaving the house with wet hair, but what about your perfume? It might be hard to ditch your summer scent as you cling to fall’s brief sunshine, but it’s time to let them go (for now). Girl is a heady, woody scent that plenty of boys will want to wear, too. Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream The newest addition to the Daisy fragrance family, this one is as light and airy as you would expect thanks to notes of blackberry, jasmine, and coconut water.
2014 was the year where comfort triumphed over impossible heels. Sneakers, flats, and boots were all the rage, and although women will never really give up their beloved heels–shout out to Kim K–it was a very laid-back year. Here is a look at the shoes that made us weak at the knees all year.
