Warning: Spoilers for "Crazy Rich Asians" below. As a Chinese American from the midwestern suburbs, I grew up obsessed with soapy, high-drama TV and movies featuring the drop dead gorgeous leads, the most glamorous wardrobes, flashy cars and champagne-filled parties. Of course, my favorites enjoyed ...
Anyone who works in or studies fashion will tell you that, once in a blue moon, a runway show happens that is so sublime, inspired and flawlessly executed that it'll be talked about (and used as a point of comparison) for years to come. This rare phenomenon occurred on Wednesday in Paris, when ...
While some guests took advantage of the slippers handed out at the reception, Serena Williams pulled off her own crafty and comfortable style trick.
Pierpaolo Piccioli has gradually veered away from the precious, ultra-femme, heavily embroidered, history-referencing aesthetic he established with former co-creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri at Valentino, and is increasingly incorporating more modern, utilitarian and even sporty elements into ...

Melania Trump got festive on Tuesday for her family’s Fourth of July celebration at the White House, where she wore an Esteban Cortázar blue and white dress paired with red-bottom heels. The patriotic look, which featured white Christian Louboutins, gained attention as FLOTUS was pictured going to watch fireworks in Washington, D.C. But as of Wednesday morning, Melania was seen jetting off to Germany and Poland with her husband Donald Trump — in style once again.
Inspired by the New York City hip-hop scene, the Valentino Resort 2018 show had something for everyone. Plus, Prada, Louis Vuitton, Chanel, and more.
Is Paris Fashion Week just an extension of the Oscars? At Valentino, all signs point to ‘oui.’ Mere weeks after Best Actress nominee Ruth Negga debuted a custom red gown from the classic fashion house, seven other scarlet dresses hit the Valentino catwalk, each with the high necks, long sleeves, and romantic (read: complicated, but still somehow cool) embroidery stitched at the waists, hems, and collars. Models also wore similar makeup to the movie star, with deep red lips and kohl-etched eyes. ...
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.
It was announced this morning that Maria Grazia Chiuri, formerly co-creative director of Valentino, has been appointed as the creative director of Christian Dior — an especially noteworthy installment, given that she is the first female head of a label that is often described as a bastion of Parisian femininity. The unveiling follows months of speculation after Raf Simons’s departure from Dior in October last year. Pierpaolo Piccioli, with whom Chiuri ran Valentino, will remain at the Italian label as its sole chief.
Seventy-year-old French fashion house Dior reportedly will soon appoint a female creative director for the first time ever. At least two sources have disclosed that Valentino’s Maria Grazia Chiuri will be trading Milan for Paris to head up the iconic maison.
Italian fashion house Valentino, owned by Qatar’s Mayhoola for Investments, has offered 500 million euros (569 million dollars) to buy Pierre Balmain, French newspaper Les Echos reported Sunday, citing sources.

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.
For 2016, designers seemed to adopt a different type of adornment — patches! Look no further for Gucci’s Dionysus Bag with glittery lips and purple lightening bolts, Marc Jacobs Lady bag with relics of all things Americana including the Coke wave and red, white, and blue popsicles. Brit “it bag” designer Anya Hindmarch took the idea one step further by slapping sticker-like emojis all over her satchels.
There is so much oohing and aahing over the gowns at couture that most people see the accessories as an afterthought. But you’d be missing all the fun, as this season designers got freaky with the shoes, bags and jewelry on the runway. And why not? With only a few individuals able to afford these over-the-top gowns (most starting at around $100K) and their totally-out-there accessories, designers need to go to extremes. Take a look.
The Spring/Summer 2016 Haute Couture shows just wrapped in Paris, and as per usual, it was quite a season to behold. It is not uncommon for one of these exquisite custom pieces to take up to 200 hours to make and require the help of 50 “hands.” It is no wonder then these couture confections are already being called in by stylists whose clients are attending the upcoming Oscars and Grammy Awards.
Think back to the days of your childhood when getting a new backpack signaled the start of the school year. It was exciting, wasn’t it? Now, you can relive those precious days of innocence as an adult—thanks to designers such as Maison Martin Margiela, Versace, and Burberry, which all showed the trusty accessory (albeit a bit more grownup and sleek) on the Spring 2016 runways. You may be a bit older now, but the utilitarian piece is just as cool (and functional) as you remember. You can wear it to work, use it for the gym, or even have it double as a weekender for a road trip— without the crippling anxiety of potentially being surprised with a pop quiz. The look’s been quickly adopted by style-conscious celebrities, too. On Monday, Aussie actress Margot Robbie was spotted in London sporting The Rucksack by Burberry, monogrammed with her initials. Kind of gives your old JanSport a run for its money, doesn’t it? So why not give your oversized tote a break and opt for something a bit more hands-free? These 19 chic backpacks will have you feeling young all over again. Follow us on Instagram , Facebook , and Pinterest for nonstop inspiration delivered fresh to your feed, every day.
There are certain items that will always be in style — the perfect white T-shirt, a seasonless pair of jeans, a killer leather jacket. For spring, the latter is getting a high fashion makeover, with new renditions coming in a variety of unexpected colors and prints. Take inspiration from Nicholas Ghesquiere who delivered pink biker jackets with printed sleeves for Louis Vuitton. He is officially giving us the okay to depart from classic black!
Shoes are vital part of dressing up, but not everyone has the same taste (obviously). While one might lean toward more minimal looks, someone else might opt for a more laid-back, bohemian look. It’s all good! Fashion is all about personal preference and there is no wrong look or style as there is something for everyone.
