Tassel bracelet trio

Now that it's tank top season, we're really stepping up our arm party game, and we're starting with this Tassel Bracelet Trio from Baublebar. Obviously we adore the cute tassels (because who doesn't love a good tassel) and the colors are absolutely perfect for summer, but we especially love how Baublebar paired these three pieces together to make the most playful, festive, and fun set we've ever seen. 

Eva Chen

For months there's been speculation that Lucky magazine was on the brink of closing shop, especially after the glossy got the boot from it's home in the Conde Nast building and formed a separate company with e-commerce site Beachmint (which totally had everyone scratching their heads). Now, EIC Eva Chen has confirmed that she is leaving. The editor in chief took to Twitter last Thursday to make the announcement, saying that she will "be transitioning from the brand in the coming months." Chen also noted that it was an "intensely personal/difficult decision" and she plans to "spend some time with family." And while The Lucky Group had no further news, WWD is reporting that Lucky will be shutting down its print operations to go completely digital. Could it be that Chen is jumping ship before the whole thing sinks? Possibly. Either way, we're certain we'll see her name on another masthead soon. 

 

Giorgio Armani

Giorgio Armani feted 40 years in the fashion industry last week, with a celebrity-studded party, a couture show, and an opening of an Armani museum in Milan. The Armani/Silos is a 4,500 square meter museum and exhibition space with four floors, all dedicated to Armani's illustrious fashion design career (The museum will open to the public next month, and the first exhibit will showcase 800 outfits and 200 accessories!). The festivities started with a tour of the Armani/Silos space, followed by an Armani Privé couture show, and finished with a giant party. Among the stylish guests, Leonardo DiCaprio, Janet Jackson, Tina Turner, Cate Blanchett, Hilary Swank, and Chris Pine. 

 

Zac Posen

Working at Delta is about to get a whole lot more glamorous thanks to Zac Posen; the designer is creating new uniforms for the flight attendants and airport customer service agents. Delta’s ramp and ground support agents, Delta Cargo agents, and Delta TechOps employees will also receive new uniforms, however Posen isn't designing them, but will act as an advisor during the design process. The designer is taking the next few months to consult with various Delta employees to find out what they want in a uniform and what will be most functional for them, then prototypes will be made, and finally the finished product. The new uniforms are expected to be released in early 2018.

Too faced melted metal

We loved Too Face Melted Liquified Lipstick when it first came out, and now we're crazy about new Too Faced Melted Metal Liquified Lipstick. It has gorgeous metallic color that lasts forever, in a formula that goes on like a gloss but lasts like a lipstick. Plus the colors, from a punchy metallic apricot to a dramatic metallic plum, are so fun and bold. We can't wait to try all of them!

Kohls x Thakoon

When it comes to designer/retailer collaborations, Target and H&M seem to have the market cornered, with big launch parties and even bigger print and television ad campaigns (who didn't swoon over those Lilly Pulitzer x Target commercials?). But if fabulous designer duds at affordable prices is what you want, don't discount Kohl's. After collaborations with Peter Som, Derek Lam, and Michelle Smith of Milly, the retailer has announced that a collection by Thakoon Panichgul is forthcoming. The limited-edition capsule collection is part of the store's DesigNation series, and will feature a range of womenswear priced at less than $200. 

 

Kate Bosworth x Matisse Footwear

From her indie style (she's always one of the most photographed celebrities at Coachella) to her glamorous red carpet looks, Kate Bosworth is easily on of the most fashion-forward stars around. Now, the Still Alice actress is giving us a chance to match her style with a shoe collection that is inspired by her wardrobe. Bosworth worked with footwear label Matisse to launch the collection, which includes boots, sandals, and mules, and she said she created shoes that she would actually want to wear with the clothes hanging in her own closet. Need proof? Bosworth did indeed wear the Charlotte boot, a star-embellished, chunky-heeled number at Coachella a couple of weeks ago. We are super excited about this collection and can't wait to rock a pair of these Bosworth-designed shoes. 

 

Karl Lagerfeld

It's not uncommon for a a big party to call for several hosts, but the Met Gala is more than just a big party--it's the industry's premier red carpet event, just ask any one of the more than one hundred hosts. Often called the Oscars of fashion, this year's Met Gala is being hosted by a veritable who's who of fashion and entertainment, including names you may expect to see, such as Andre Leon Talley and Sarah Jessica Parker, and surprises like Seth Meyers and Bradley Cooper. There are also a ton of fashion designer co-hosts, natch, including Tory Burch, Tom Ford, Valentino Garavani, Nicolas Ghesquiere, Diane von Furstenberg,  and Alexander Wang, to name a few. And even though the Chanel cruise 2015 show is the same evening and neither of them are expected to attend, both Karl Lagerfeld and Cara Delevingne are listed on the invitation (he because, obviously, he's the creative director for the French fashion house, and she because she typically closes his runway shows). The Met Gala is the largest fundraiser for the Costume Institute, and precludes the opening of the new Costume Institute exhibit, "China: Through the Looking Glass." Look for websites such as Vogue.com and Style.com to stream the event live on May 4.

Silent Wish

We're so excited about wearing flirty dresses and kicky little skirts this season. This Silent Wish Midi Skirt is as cute and kicky as they come, with its full silhouette and on-trend sheer mesh inserts. We can dress it up or down with the right shoes and accessories, and it totally works for the office, brunch with the girls, Friday night movie dates, shopping with our sister, and pretty much everything else we love to do this time of year. 

Liya Kibede Vogue Paris

Model Liya Kibede is gracing the May 2015 cover of Vogue Paris and she looks absolutely stunning. So why is this a big deal? She's gorgeous, her skin is flawless, she looks amazing in high-end designer fashion--she belongs on the cover of magazines, right? Well, this is the first time Vogue Paris has had a black model on the cover in five years, proving that the lack of diversity in the fashion industry is still very much a huge issue. Despite efforts from the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) and its international counterparts to boost diversity, on the runway in particular, there hasn't really been much progress throughout the industry as a whole. Here's hoping this Vogue Paris cover and Jourdan Dunn's Vogue UK cover back in February are the start to a necessary change that needs to happen in the fashion world. Congrats to the beautiful Liya Kibede on landing this cover!

 

Gisele

It's the end of an era! After two decades of modeling, Gisele Bündchen is retiring from the runway. The supermodel, who's walked for iconic fashion houses including Chanel, Valentino, and Louis Vuitton, ended her career last week in her native Brazil where she strutted the runway at Sao Paulo Fashion Week. "I don't see how to continue (modeling on the catwalk) ... and stopping will leave room for other projects I have for myself," Bündchen said in an interview. "Automatically my body tells me if what I do is worth it, and it asked to stop. I respect my body, it's a privilege to be able to stop." The Brazilian beauty is, according to Forbes, the highest-earning model, netting $47 million last year alone. Bündchen is staying mum on what her "other projects" might be, but we're keeping our fingers crossed that some sort of book is in the works.

 

DELiAs

It was just over a month ago that we reported that dELiA*s was finito, but it ain't over 'til it's over. After being delisted from the Nasdaq Global Market, liquidating merchandise (and store fixtures!) at the brick and mortar locations, and shutting down the website, dELiA*s is making a comeback as an online-only shop. Head to the dELiA*s homepage now and you'll be greeted with a message that reads "coming soon...," along with the hashtag #DeliasForever. The retailer also sent out the message via their Instagram with a post that says "News flash! Delia*s will be coming back-to-school with you! Best part? Online only = ALWAYS OPEN!" Look for the new dELia*s e-commerce site to launch this August.

H&M jumpsuit

The first weekend of Coachella is over and everywhere we look we're seeing cool pics of girls in their festival finest jumpsuits, crochet, fringe, and '70s-esque denim. Inspired by snaps of Alessandra Ambrosio, Gigi Hadid, and Kendall Jenner, we're shopping for pieces like this H&M Jumpsuit. It's perfect for a music festival and beyond. In fact, it just might become our go-to piece all season.
