Uniqlo will get a heavy dose of Parisian chic in March 2014 when it launches a collaboration with ultimate French style icon Inès de la Fressange. Her career in fashion has been wildly varied, but de la Fressange served as muse and creative collaborator on the collection, which is meant to serve as an "ideal wardrobe."
She was involved with every detail, down to the fittings, and her French flair shows in the easy but exacting chicness of the clothes. In a release, she says: "An interesting aspect about fashion is that by changing a few centimeters, or millimeters, one transforms the garment. And the more one talks about the 'basics,' and pieces that are easy to wear, the greater the importance of the subtleties that professionals in the business can bring."
After all, de la Fressange quite literally wrote the book on how to dress like a Frenchwoman. Her 2011 tome Parisian Chic: A Style Guide includes advice on everything from how to wear sequined sweaters to the cautionary statement, "Beware of good taste."
De la Fressange confesses to being a fan of the brand ("I often go to Uniqlo during my lunch break"), but what qualifies her to take on such a collaboration? She was once a model and muse to Karl Lagerfeld during his early years at Chanel. (They had a falling out in the early '90s but have since patched things up.) At 56, she can still be seen walking the runway every now and again — most notably for Jean Paul Gaultier in 2009 and Chanel in 2010. For the past 10 years, de la Fressange has worked as a consultant to Roger Vivier, perhaps the most French of all French shoe brands, and since 2011, she's been a spokeswoman for L'Oréal.
Because being cozy isn't always synonymous with looking cute, even your best party look can be ruined with a bad jacket or bulky coat. To ensure that that doesn't happen, we're putting our fashion math to good use to warm up our holiday-perfect ensembles without marshmallow jackets, puffers, or fleeces.
Instead, we're making use of rich textures, like faux furs, cool leather jackets, and tailored coats — and just remember, you can never have too many pairs of tights on hand. With these on hand, rest assured there's a way to cozy up even your stem-baring, bejeweled cocktail dress. For the fashionable how-to, just keep clicking (and shop away!).

Each week, we are tracking down the latest looks from our favorite country darlings, including exact pieces, and we're giving you a sneak peek at the looks from tonight's episode. So slip on your cowboy boots, grab a microphone — we can belt out the latest hits together — and get ready to fall under their style spell.

We have reached the moment of ARTPOP's inevitability. After a performance in London on Wednesday, Lady Gaga greeted her fans in a dress painted to look like Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa.
The dress, based on what is arguably one of the most famous paintings in the world, follows after a number of art-inspired looks surrounding the promotion of her new album. But this look is probably the most literal usage of an artwork we've seen from the singer yet. She even did her makeup and wore a wig mimicking the classic painting's coloring.
The red dress is such a festive choice for the holidays, and Jessica Simpson, Lea Michele, Rita Ora, and Gwen Stefani are giving us four very different takes on the red dress. Watch on for holiday party dressing inspiration, and let us know your favorite in the comments below.

If you haven't bought your holiday look yet, you might want to hold off until tomorrow — that's when L'Wren Scott for Banana Republic hits stores. And it's not just party dresses we'll have to look forward to from the 50-piece collection! As we learned today in the New York Post's Alexa, there are cozier options, too. Of the pajamas, which Scott calls her favorites in the line, she says, "That's all I can think of at Christmas: I get to sleep in!"
As for why Scott chose the brand for her first collaboration, that decision was an equally warm and cozy one: "I have memories of growing up in Utah and saving my money to shop there. I worked for a Banana Republic [campaign] with Herb Ritts, so I have a history with them." With feminine silhouettes, seasonal hues, and prices ranging from $39 to $198, this could easily become our one-stop shop for holiday dressing. Click through to hear more of her interview, sneak a glimpse of what to expect, and get your shopping lists ready!
