Although Audrey Hepburn will always be our #1 obsession, we recently watched this old flick on a transatlantic flight and was instantly reminded how charming both Grace Kelly and Cary Grant were. Jewels weren’t the only things the thieves stole.
A great reason to visit the James Turrell: A Retrospective Exhibit at LACMA… we all need a little light in our lives…and this is simply stunning.
Of the buzz at the couture shows this week, the pastel-hued kicks at Chanel were the clear highlights, with 30 hours of work going into each pair. Leave it to Karl Lagerfeld to so expertly and audaciously meld high and low. J’adore!
“A beautiful woman is a beautiful woman, but a beautiful woman with a brain is an absolutely lethal combination.” We couldn’t agree more with these words from Prabal Gurung.

Not only does Garance Dore have one of the best blogs, she’s an amazing illustrator.
While costumes help set tone, define characters and even motivate plots, our style-obsessed brains look to fashion in film primarily for inspiration. Based on that idea of a visual treat, we chose these three of the 2014 Oscar nominees in Costume Design for how they present a fantasy that doesn’t just help tell the story, but also feels relevant now.
No one anticipated Baz Luhrmann’s “The Great Gatsby” like the fashion world and the opulence and sequins didn’t disappoint. The glittery looks however seemed best on screen, with the exception of this boho scarf-and-headband combo that beautifully helped fuel the current rage for mismatched prints.
Wearing Amy Adams’ dramatically slit tops from “American Hustle” might be inappropriate in most workplaces, but the way costume designer Michael Wilkinson interpreted the characters’ take on a seductive, classy associate has all the hallmarks of how the late ’70s and early ’80s influenced professional fashion today.
We surprised ourselves by including the drab clothes from “12 Years a Slave” on this list. But instead of simple period costumes (though they weren’t without vintage prints and button-panel pants), the subtle array of hues and elegant ensembles gorgeously suggest the present appeal of minimalist dressing.
We’re especially feeling the latter in this second week of the new year!
An art project to cover Los Angeles with native wildflowers? Sign us up! Artist Fritz Haeg started the endeavor last year to sow areas of the city, bringing back the “story of the season” in blossoms. We can’t wait for the “opening” later this spring.
