Mario Testino’s Niece Marina makes a Name For Herself With New Fashion Brand

img-8568-1508413909
There's a new Testino in town? Marina Testino, niece of legendary photographer Mario, is pursuing a fashion career of her own. After graduating from Parsons in May and signing with The Society Management's "creatives" division, the ambitious 22-year-old is debuting a clothing line cleverly named Point Off View, which launches tonight with an event at Andy Warhol's former Factory space in New York City. Testino aims to fuse fashion and art through a series of collaborative capsules (all crafted by Peruvian artisans) spotlighting different talents. Her first drop, Edition 0, includes everyday staples like denim jackets and button-ups emblazoned with attention-grabbing phrases intended to spark conversation―both in person and on social media. The sleeve of one army jacket claims, "I'm single depending...

Why Ugly-Shoe Instagram Accounts Are My Deepest, Darkest Guilty Pleasure

00-story-heels
I am fascinated by a really good ugly shoe. I’m talking a nasty, stubby kitten heel that comes in at .75 inches in height. An exquisitely awful footwear faux pas, like toes crunched in too-tight sky-high pumps. I find myself squealing with a combination of disgust and delight when I see a stray digit wiggle out of a pair of Céline sandals, or catch a glimpse of a man sporting a pair of Mexican pointy boots. (Though, if you want my opinion on the platform Crocs at Balenciaga, I’m indifferent. The footwear is shapeless. Like a large mass of rubber on a foot. Trèsboring.) I used to think I was mad for having this obsession. But I’m not alone. The ugly-pretty shoe...

Rihanna’s Stylist Has His Eye On These 5 New Designers

elm100117shopssamira-lead-1508257156
ELLE Fashion Director Samira Nasr talks shop with Mel Ottenberg, stylist to ELLE cover star Rihanna. What feels very of-the-moment? Mel Ottenberg: This is a great time to experiment. It’s all about a mix of oversize, androgynous shapes with ultra-feminine bags and shoes. Spring for the ridiculous shoe, not just the “sexy” shoe. What do you consider an absolute fashion faux pas? I find the reality of low-rise pants to be absolutely terrible. Where a stretch skinny jean once felt like enough, it’s not anymore. I’m really into a waist and embroidery when it comes to denim this season. What style essentials should every woman own? A jacket and a sweater that change your life when you put them on. And this season, an oversize shirt. Who do you think...

What We Can Learn From H&M x Erdem’s Secret Garden Runway Show And Party

gettyimages-862953402-1508421642

To announce the launch of Erdem’s forthcoming collaboration with H&M, London-based designer Erdem Moralioglu brought an old English secret garden to Los Angeles. Walls of flowers and a swaying chandelier were the perfect backdrop to frame the designer and retail giant’s romantic eveningwear and coordinating suits. If Wednesday Adams ever married her true love in the English countryside, the set of Erdem and H&M’s collaboration would serve as the perfect inspiration.

The collection is chock full of signature Erdem items: Models descended from a large balcony wearing a series of floral-print dresses—some knee-length, some full gowns, some with cut-outs, bows, sheer details, and frills—an adorable pajama set, suits, and tweed. But Moraliouglu also planned some unexpected standout moments,...

Ageless Style: Ashley Graham

The curvaceous 29-year-old supermodel feels comfortable in her own skin and in a figure-hugging little black dress.

The fashion industry creates a fantasy world of what women are supposed to look like. But now everybody is able to be themselves. As an ultra curvy model who’s unapologetically showing off her body, I think that has created a space for women to say, “I might not wear Spanx today and let my cellulite hang out.” That’s something I’m really proud of. It’s cool that designers are finally seeing us not as a token but as everyday women. I walked in my first show for Michael Kors for Fall 2017, and for Spring 2018 he had another curvy model, Sabina Karlsson. She’s...

Youth springs eternal for the 69-year-old CoverGirl model, dietitian, and proud mother of Tesla’s Elon

I started modeling at 15 and thought by 18 I would be done. For 45 years, I had a private practice as a dietitian and modeled occasionally. Now modeling has taken over. Who would have thought that at 69 I would become a CoverGirl? I always carry my house keys, an emery board, natural lipstick, tissues, hand lotion, and my Tesla fob. The first time I visited L.A., my children and I were having dinner, and my daughter, Tosca, said,“Mom’s thinking of moving to L.A.” My son Elon said, “I’ll get you a Tesla!” Of course, then I had to move because a fabulous car would make driving...

Whether you're ready for it or not, holiday shopping season is upon us. And if you're already stumped on what to get the special someone in your life, Neiman Marcus has a suggestion: why not a Rolls-Royce convertible or two?
The high-end retailer is offering limited-edition Dawn Drophead Coupés by the luxury auto dealer as a part of its annual Christmas Book holiday gift catalogue. The vehicles come in two "yours & mine" styles—because why would you give someone a Rolls-Royce without getting one for yourself?
There's a Lake Como-inspired blue iteration with a grey-and-black leather interior and a brushed metal dashboard for $439,625:

How Fiorucci Staged a Comeback Via Hashtag

03a7067-1508425418

It was the fashion equivalent of a one-two punch.
One Spring morning, Gigi Hadid pushed through paparazzi in a simple white t-shirt with a vintage neon logo: Fiorucci. That same week, Chloe Sevigny wore her Fiorucci logo tee out shopping. Like a signal flare to their respective style tribes, the #Fiorucci hashtag started spreading from Brooklyn to Beverly Hills. And presto—a carefully planned comeback was born (along with tons of blog posts).

Ummmm who had a @fiorucci tee growing up? Me at 12 years old and they are back! Wow! #chloesevigny #fiorucci . . . . . : : : . . #melbournestylist #personalstylist #shopping #fashion #style #love #dailyfashion #makeover #wardrobe #trends #fashioninspo #styleinspiration #clothes #wiwt #streetstyle #lifestyle #wiw #instastyle #instafashion #instagood #igdaily #mum...

GETTY

Booty-full.

Kendall Jenner took the phrase "look back at it" to new levels on Wednesday night, when she posted this selfie in a red one-piece swimsuit.

She took extra care to hike up one of the leg holes to reveal a little extra booty, because the more, the merrier, obviously. The effect was: 🍑🔥🍑🔥🍑🔥.

As #belfies go, this one is what most tabloids would call "steamy." But(t), is it even the most sizzling #belfie on her feed? Kendall actually takes a lot of these, it turns out.

Here's one with tight-fitting leather pants.

Cheesy Slice-And-Bake Crackers

cheesy-slice-and-bake-crackers
"What can I bring?" A question you've asked a thousand times, only to have your host-to-be return some version of, "Oh, just a bottle of wine!" You know why they always say that? Because they don't know that you have this cheesy crackers recipe up your sleeve. If they knew that they were talking to a Capable Adult Human who is able to throw together a batch of the easiest, crispiest, most delicious cocktail hour snack known to mankind in about an hour, they'd be singing a different tune. "Oh, won't you pleeeeease make those cheesy crackers you always make," they'd plead, "they're literally addictive." But they don't know all of that yet. Which is why next time you get invited to a dinner party—or...
