  • How to Wear Denim Like A Rock Star

The Nirvana frontman had a special penchant for making disheveledness an art form. The good news is that if you’re a fan of his rock and roll spirit, it doesn’t take a lot to mimic his laissez faire style. From multiple layers and mix and match pieces to denim-on-denim looks, here’s how to sartorially show off your rebellious side, whether you’re performing at a dive bar or partying on the beach with a few of your fellow musicians.

  • Hal Rubenstein’s New Book Is a Delicious Read for Pop Culture Fiends & Hopeless Romantics

    If you’re a fashion and pop culture junkie, or a cinematic daydreamer who often relates real life experiences to those witnessed on film, you’ll love this dreamy new tome by fashion industry icon Hal Rubenstein. The Looks of Love: 50 Moments in Fashion That Inspired Romance, is like VH1′s Pop Up Video in book form, providing little known details and the author’s first hand insights behind everything from Courtney Love’s initial wardrobe choices (she handmade all of those baby doll dresses, btw) to Dior’s elaborate haute couture shows in Paris to how to replicate that iconic gray off-the-shoulder sweatshirt worn by Jennifer Beale in Flashdance.  “I don’t think the idea was never not with me,” Rubenstein tells Yahoo Style upon explaining the impetus behind the book. “I have always been fascinated by how powerfully certain pop-cultural images insinuate themselves into our emotional behavior.” Enlisting pals such as Calvin Klein, Debra Messing, John Galliano, and Michael Kors to chime into the conversation, Rubenstein offers a enlightening and gossipy read, a touchstone for anyone who lived through these moments (or wishes that they had).  As for his favorite moments? “I won’t ever forget the hysteria of John Galliano freaking everyone out at Versailles with his Amazonian warrior collection for Dior inspired by The Matrix,” he says. “I had the pleasure of introducing my friend Versace to South Beach.

  • Saint Laurent’s Made A Grunge Tiara for the People

    If your definition of grunge starts and ends with Kurt Cobain, here’s an actual one, from the dictionary: : a type of loud rock music that was popular especially in the early 1990s; also : the fashions associated with this type of music : heavy dirt Until now, no one would have ever suggested that “the fashion associated with this type of music” includes tiaras. And yet, as YSL live-tweeted their SS16 runway show, sharing previously shot images of the collection and too-cool models (hey what’s up hello Agyness Deyn!), the brand made not one but two mentions of “the grunge tiara.” First, that classic phrase, “to be worn with anything.”

  • Courtney Love On Kurt at Tribeca Film Festival Screening: “That Was a Soul Mate Thing”

    “There are a lot of myths, and I really wanted someone to tell the truth,” Courtney Love said, explaining why she gave filmmaker Brett Morgen free access to her family memorabilia for the documentary Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck, about her late husband, the Nirvana front man. The Tribeca Film Festival screening on Sunday evening was Love’s fourth time seeing the film.
