Screen Shot 2017-11-18 at 16.42.49

Lena Dunham is trending on Twitter again for all the wrong reasons. 

After it came to light that Girls writer Murray Miller was accused of raping a 17-year-old girl in 2012, Dunham released a statement yesterday (November 17) alongside co-showrunner Jenni Konner, which said that despite it being a “hugely important time of change” in Hollywood, culture was “taking down the wrong target” in this instance.

“While our first instinct is to…

Legendary designer Azzedine Alaïa has passed away

Azzedine Alaïa

We are sad to report that legendary designer Azzedine Alaïa has passed away aged 77, according to French magazine Le Point. However, it is unknown exactly how old he was, as for years he maintained that his birth year was something he tried to forget. 

Born in Tunisia, he got his start in fashion working for a dressmaker. He would copy the designs of European couture houses for women, a skillset that stood him in good stead when he moved to…

friday favorites: for your thanksgiving soirées

   

T’was the week before Thanksgiving, and all through the apartment, every fashion maven was scrolling through the shoe department…

That’s how it goes, right? 🙂

Thanksgiving is one of the best times of the year. A day filled with family, friends, food, and festivities — what could be better? One of my favorite things about the holiday is the way everyone has different traditions. For some, the entire extended family piles into this year’s host’s home, where folding tables have been placed strategically throughout the dining and living rooms, decked out in pretty linens and lined with autumnal centerpieces. Food is served in big dishes, and everyone chats happily as they pile their plates high with corn pudding and mashed potatoes. Photos are snapped throughout the day, joy captured in quick squares, and everyone contentedly collapses on the couch to watch movies and play games. Turkey and gravy is best paired with luxe loungewear, to remain comfortable yet chic while consuming every side dish in sight.

For others, it’s Friendsgiving, potlucked and cozy, recounting tales of past Thanksgivings and maybe trying to recreate that Friends episode where Joey gets the turkey stuck on his head. A proud but exhausted master chef, covered in flour from her three delicious homemade pies, looks lovingly at her friends gathered around her table in her tiny apartment. She wears heels even though she’s inside paired with an oversized sweater, and reapplies her red lipstick while no one is looking.

And then there are the Thanksgiving orphans, with all friends leaving town and no desire to cook, who end up in a snug, homey restaurant in the corner of the city, grateful they decided to remain open on the holiday and serve 3-course dinners. Dressed up in cocktail attire and a chic coat draped over her shoulders, she sips warm mulled cider by the flickering firelight and smiles at her Thanksgiving companion.

So, which type of Thanksgiving celebration is your favorite? What is the fondest tradition you practice each year? How will you be spending the day next week? And, importantly, what are you wearing? See my picks below for the perfect outfit to match your own unique festivities.

Four times the runways referenced Suspiria

Suspiria dario argento film italian

It’s lurid, it’s bloody, it passes the Bechdel test with flying colours. Dario Argento’s giallo horror Suspiria is an undisputed classic of the genre. With mysterious goings-on (and a couple of sudden, very cinematic deaths) at a German ballet school, an American student is faced with unravelling the truth of the supernatural forces at play. The resulting film is 100 minutes of dizzying vivid…

American Horror Story’s Ally – always lied to but surviving

AHS.v1

“I’m sorry, are… are you saying you believe me?” Ally (Sarah Paulson) asks breathlessly in a midseason episode of American Horror Story: Cult. She’s just told Sally Keffler (Mare Cunningham), a middle-aged Berkeley grad and the only local citizen willing to run against Kai Anderson (Evan Peters) in the upcoming city council election, that Kai is heading a murderous cult and that her life could be in danger.

When Sally tells her she does believe her, Ally’s response is one of…
