Twin Peaks Fans, Rejoice: David Lynch Launches Fashion Line

In news that will certainly make every Twin Peaks and Blue Velvet fan jump for joy, legendary surrealist film director David Lynch has launched his first official line of clothing.

Maggie Gyllenhaal Carries Both Celine and Buglari to a Movie Premiere

Maggie Gyllenhaal Carries Both Celine and Buglari to a Movie Premiere

Here’s Maggie Gyllenhaal, arriving at the New York premiere of the new indie flick Very Good Girls, carrying both a Celine Trio Bag and a Bulgari Serpenti Bag. (Note the snake’s head clasp.) We approve of this kind of double-dipping. Celine isn’t sold online, of course, but you can find Maggie’s other bag in blue snakeskin for $2,850 at Bulgari.

Bulgari isn’t a brand that’s renowned for its handbags, but it does have a token handbag collection, and we have noticed Bulgari bags on the arms of celebs like Anna Dello Russo and Emmy Rossum recently. Each Bulgari handbag is crafted with extra-exotic skins and leathers. Thus, every bag is on the pricey side, with a suggested retail price of $2,000-$4,000.

Sun Bum

A new addition to our list of favorite sunscreens: Sun Bum.

Garance pointed it out to me the other day during a trip to Ricky’s and we immediately bought a few bottles. It’s got that classic summer at the beach scent, boasts SPF 50 protection and is paraben free. It’s become a staple for all of our outdoor shoots this summer!

Exclusive: Whitney Port Tries On Wedding Dresses For The First Time

Though Whitney Port is fully immersed in the planning of her spring nuptials to producer Tim Rosenman, the Whitney Eve designer had never tried on a wedding dress until arriving at our Los Angeles studios earlier this month. With racks full of gorgeous gowns at her disposal, Port immediately gravitated toward the unexpected silhouettes, specifically a matching top and skirt set from Tory Burch and a slinky number by Reformation not unlike the Calvin Klein slip dress she originally imagined for herself. “I’m definitely a more modern bride,” Port says. “I don’t feel like weddings need to be by the book.” It’s not surprising; while Port is a classic beauty, her fashion-forward sensibilities point to an unconventional bridal direction, which we love.

How To Make A Beautiful Bridal Bouquet

How To Make A Beautiful Bridal Bouquet
Duh dum duh dum!

The flowers a bride holds while walking down the aisle are incredibly special and making them yourself (or assigning the task to a crafty loved one) can add a personal touch to your ceremony.

In honor of wedding season, I teamed up with Greta from Glasswing Floral to show you how to create a beautiful bridal bouquet. It’s easier than you may think  – just watch our video and follow the four simple steps.

DIY: How To Make A Beautiful Bridal Bouquet

1. SELECT YOUR FLOWERS: Use 2 types of large, 2 types of medium, 2 fillers & 1 green.

2. CLEAN THE STEMS: Cut away leaves.

3. BUILD BOUQUET: Start with the largest at the center, work around the center in a spiral direction. Alternate between sizes, colors and textures then finish with the greens. Bonus: add feathers, brooches or anything else special to you.

4. FASTEN: Tie the bouquet with a rubber band, then cut the stems (leaving about 2 fists long). Wrap base with floral tape, leaving approximately 1-2″ of stems exposed. Then wrap with ribbon and secure with pins.

I Don’t Enjoy Shopping Sample Sales

I Don’t Enjoy Shopping Sample Sales

Last week I got ready for the day a bit earlier than usual, hailed a cab and headed down to Soho. As the car pulled onto Mercer Street, I saw a line on the sidewalk longer than I anticipated (by about 150 people). This was the line I was about to stand in.

It was sample sale time.

The specific sample sale I’m speaking of was Proenza Schouler, which opened its doors to friends and family a day before they opened to the public. I anticipated a bit of a line, but as I got into my place around 8:50 for a sale whose doors opened at 9:00, I realized it was going to be a longer ordeal than I anticipated. I patiently waited for the first 30 minutes past opening, then began to feel fidgety. I wondered if I should just leave; I already had a busy day ahead of me and had no way of knowing what would be left when I finally made it inside.

This internal struggle continued for an hour, until it was finally my turn to enter the sale. I figured, okay, it’s totally worth it. I popped down the stairs, gave my bag to the bag keepers (no bags are allowed in sample sales to ward off shoplifters) and went directly to the Proenza Schouler handbag table.

There wasn’t much to be desired, at least not according to my desires. I really wanted a PS1 or PS11, just the straight-forward version, but the best bags had been taken long ago and there were PS1 totes and other one-offs that weren’t what I was looking for. I looked through everything and finally found an orange PS1; it wasn’t the color I wanted or even a color I loved, but I picked it up. I then saw a few PS1 clutches, and ended up seeing someone put a pink suede version back on the pile. I grabbed that one.

There was a lot of clothes, but that wasn’t what I was looking for. I stared at the bags a bit longer and realized this was the best I was going to get. I went to the checkout line and stood there with my two items, not really in love with my selection but feeling like I should leave with something after waiting outside so long.

It was one of those days where the line moved slowly – I’m talking two-hours-to-check-out slow. I made friends with the people in front of me and we all helped one another decide if we should keep what we picked out. Many of us spent enough time standing there that we gave up on items we had picked, and some put everything back and left. After about an hour and 15 minutes, I saw a woman walk towards the bag table and let us know she was going to put back her off-white PS1 and asked if anyone wanted it. I DID. She gave it to me and I put back the orange PS1.

After just over 3 hours in total time, I got to pay for my goods. The PS1 was $399 and the PS1 clutch was $299, which I thought was a tad over-priced for a sample sale. However, instead of leaving the sample sale feeling happy and accomplished, I was annoyed and felt like I had wasted time. Sure, I got a couple of bags and I really do like them, but it wasn’t a fun process.

When I first moved to NYC four years ago, I was so enthralled by sample sales. I loved checking them out, I loved the hunt and I loved the deals. But after attending many sample sales, I realize that, for me, sample sales are more of a hassle. Plus, when I go to them, I buy things I rarely wear or carry.

Sample sales don’t happen everywhere, and many of you may never have shopped one, but I find myself more intrigued by a great online sale than an in-person sample sale. For those of you who have participated, I want to know if you enjoy sample sales; do you enjoy the thrill of the hunt, or would you rather sit comfortably in your home and find the best deals on the web to avoid the line?

Tan Lines

We’ve all been there. Fell asleep in the sun. Went for a long run. And the next day: tan lines.

My worst tan line experience happened while I was studying abroad. My friend and I took a boat (a glorified ferry) from Italy to Greece. In the morning, I went up to the top deck to take in the sights and I fell asleep on a bench. Wearing leggings. Fast forward a few hours and I was left with a bright red lower calf cut off by a straight line right at mid-calf. It was the worst tan line you could ever imagine (yeah, worse than the sunglasses tan line most often seen on guys who are too macho for sunscreen). My attempts at “evening it out” on the beach failed and just left me with more awkward lines up and down my legs. It took the rest of the summer for it to fade away and for me to not be embarrassed having bare legs in public…

Now you know I’m not perfect when it comes to staying safe at the sun (see my recent adventure with lava tights) but I have learned a few tricks for helping to fade those baaadddd tan lines (things I wish I had known summer of 2009)…

Exfoliate. This is the big one. Be sure you are exfoliating everyday in the shower, use a loofa with a good (gritty) scrub. It will help to slough off dead skin cells and speed up your tan line fading process. If you’re extra adventurous, try dry brushing (I just started doing it, will report back on my feelings/findings very soon!). Remember, don’t start exfoliating until after your burn has heeled!

Stay moisturized. Just like when you get a bad burn, you want to keep your tan skin hydrated.

Go sunless. This is reserved for seasoned pros (or if you really need to get that tan line covered up fast)– grab your sunless tanner and get to work. I prefer the gradual building sunless tanners when it comes to evening things out (I like Jergens Natural Glow), less risk envolved but it will take a bit more time. If you need a quick fix, try James Read Wash Off Tan, it delivers color right away (but I recommend using it with a tanning mitt for even application).

Okay, since we are all friends here, tell me about your worst tan line. And then tell me your tricks for dealing with it!
