Google Is Changing Its Look For Fashion Week

landscape-1455770638-hbz-nyfw-fw16-beauty-00-index

Google is getting a makeover for fashion month. The search engine will be displaying results differently for designer-related searches to better feature the brands and runway shows.
Designers themselves are very involved in choosing what appears for their searches in order to promote their presentations and shopping locations (for those brands adhering to the "see now, buy now" schedule). Kate Lanphear, former Editor in Chief of Maxim, assisted Google in its fashion facelift.

Some interface changes are already in use. For example, a search for "fashion week" brings up a new module that displays photos, videos and announcements by brands about their shows, which are either linked to their websites, or serve as stand-alone slides.

The Best Of What’s New For Fall

landscape-1472586831-hbz-best-of-whats-news-3
Let's start with the ruffles. You can't move for ruffles. And velvet. Sometimes you find yourself dreaming about them. You wake up at the point of suffocation by ruffled velvet. It's a hauntingly romantic kind of season. Sometimes the romance turns dark. Those teeny, tiny sprig prints (it's also a print season) grow predatory. You feel like Gretel—a Gretel who hankers after one of those gorgeous floaty (yup, the season is floaty as well) or lacy (that too, lots and lots of it) ruffled dresses you saw at Alexander McQueen. The ones seeped in fantasy motifs; the ones Sarah Burton said she purposely wanted to be redolent of nightmares as much as she wanted them to be sweet, because one...

Topshop Unique Joins The “Runway To Retail” Format

landscape-1472648041-hbz-topshop-runway

Following in the footsteps of Burberry and Tommy Hilfiger, Topshop has announced plans to make its new collections available directly after the show has taken place. Entitled the "runway-to-retail" format, consumers will be able to buy a carefully selected edit of what has just been shown immediately online and in store.
"Bringing our customers closer to the London Fashion Week experience has always been a focus for us, but now, more than ever, in a rapidly changing global marketplace where consumers demand immediacy, we recognize the importance of disrupting the traditional model," Mary Homer, Topshop's managing director said following the announcement.

Cara Delevingne fronts a new campaign to raise awareness and money for the treatment of gynecological cancer. This marks the second time that the model has appeared in a "Lady Garden" campaign for the Gynecological Cancer Fund, for which her sister Chloe Delevingne is on the committee. Poppy Delevingne also came on board to style her younger sibling for the shoot, making it a real family affair.
"I am so happy with this [campaign] and thrilled to be helping raise awareness for a cause that is so important," Cara wrote on Instagram.

An Urban Wine Crawl Through Portland

00-holding-urban-wineries-in-portland

Most of us, when we picture a winery, imagine a lush green vineyard stretching over acres, and an old, beaten-up barn where a farmer is unloading hauls of grapes into a crusher at sunset. It’s romantic, and definitely exists—and yet, some of the country’s most exciting winemaking is happening within city limits, in warehouses that have been outfitted with fermenting vats, barrels, and in many cases, public tasting rooms where it’s possible to observe wine being made as you taste through a flight.

The Breezy, Open-Back Tops and Dresses You’re Bound to See at NYFW

Photo: StyleDuMonde
Labor Day Weekend is just around the corner (not that you needed the reminder), closely followed by New York Fashion Week and the official end of summer (the last day is September 21, FYI—cue the Earth, Wind & Fire). All clues suggest fall’s breezy temperatures are fast approaching, but, in reality, it’s going to feel like summer for quite a bit longer. The highs next week in New York are in the mid-80s and 90s, and the rest of the month looks just as balmy. But if you’re still in the mood for a wardrobe refresh—or just need something to wear to NYFW—don’t blow your paycheck on another sundress or skirt. Instead, take a tip from street-style stars like Pernille...

The Story Behind Agyness Deyn’s Fairy-Tale Wedding Dress

agyness-deyn-molly-wedding
Agyness Deyn—model, actress, singer—could have gone virtually anywhere for her wedding dress. But when it came to exchange vows with hedge fund manager Joel McAndrew in Brooklyn Heights last weekend, she was enveloped in a mighty cloud of tulle by the young English designer Molly Goddard. A mutual friend, London makeup artist Celia Burton, put Deyn in touch with Goddard, and it turned out to be a match made in tutu heaven. The designer, who is renowned for her oversize, fairy-tale dresses, says that Deyn was super-relaxed about her gown, the furthest thing from a spoiled, entitled bridezilla. “She came to the studio in May or June, tried on a few things, and then said, ‘Do whatever you think best!’” Goddard recalls. “I...

The Nonsurgical Way People Are Now Slimming Their Faces

botox-slim-face-feature
“Does my face look different?” asked my twentysomething friend, turning her face from side to side and wiggling her jaw. A set of small, dark, barely there bruises peeked out from both sides of her face. “I got Botox,” she whispered, beaming. Uh, what? Not only does my friend already look a good three years younger than she is, but her skin also has zero fine lines, zero wrinkles, and certainly nothing worth Botoxing. But as I promptly pointed out these basic facts, she stopped me. The Botox wasn’t for wrinkles, she said, it was to slim down her face. Or, more accurately, her jaw. The process, as I found out, is called a masseter muscle injection. The masseters, which are the...
