Marc Jacobs has delivered a knockout Fall 2013 Louis Vuitton collection, emphasizing the intimacy and luxury of boudoir dressing. With a circular set of hotel doors surrounding an audience that included Naomi Watts and Jessica Chastain, models like Kate Moss and Lindsey Wixson showed off ladylike looks with plenty of sex appeal. Tweed suits with nipped-in waists had degrade sequins while panne velvet dresses clung to the body. The house's famous bags were rendered in fur and other luxe materials, leaving the logos off the runway. Click through to see all the photos from Louis Vuitton Fall 2013.
Shorts come in all sizes and shapes, but the culottes craze has us especially smitten. Spotted first on the streets of Paris Fashion Week — and on the runways of Etro, Marni, and Rag & Bone — this effortlessly chic silhouette is perfect for just about any occasion. And with Summer almost here, we think they're the coolest way to let your legs breathe. Here's how to work it:
- For a bold take on culottes, pick a printed and/or colorful style. For a subtle approach, go for a solid in a dark hue.
- We love the idea of pairing a silk-patterned rendition with a loose tank and low-heeled sandals for daytime.
- When it's time for work, go for a more structured shape, then throw on a button-down and a blazer for further polish.
- To rock your culottes for nighttime, just add a leather or sequined tank and the highest of heels.
What would Rihanna wear to the celebration of her collection launch at the River Island store in London? Rihanna for River Island, naturally. The singer chose one of the most eye-catching pieces in the line: boyfriend-style denim that gives the illusion that she layered on two different pairs (one light, one dark) on top of one another. Up top Rihanna sported a boxy white crop top, then finished off with black ankle-strap sandals and an assortment of her signature gold jewels. You have to give it up to her for designing such a unique piece, but tell us, would you wear it?

Inspired by Oz the Great and Powerful, designer Jerome C. Rousseau has created a gorgeous new heel to be exclusively sold on Shoescribe.com starting March 7. The debut of this limited-edition open-toe pump, which is covered in glitter-infused mesh fabric and a gold leather spiral, not only coincides with the film's release the next day, but also marks the first anniversary of Shoescribe.com. And we couldn't think of a better way to celebrate this unique shoe than by showing it to you here — and catching up with Rousseau himself.
On which Oz the Great and Powerful actress he had in mind when designing: "My thinking was more focused on the overall fantastical and whimsical nature of the film. I was inspired by the landscapes, costumes, and characters, so I thought of each Oz witch when I worked on the exclusive design. I think there are elements of each character represented in this style — it's fierce, magical, elegant, and daring all at once."
On which witch — the good or the bad — should wear this heel: "I love the idea of good vs. bad witches in Oz. I'm definitely a bad witch myself, so I'd rather see a bad witch in this design. Or a good witch that's finally looking for trouble!"

Peter Som has teamed up with Anthropologie's bridal label, BHLDN, to create a three-piece wedding capsule — two gowns and one minidress — as part of the B-Inspired collection. The best part? It's now available to shop online. Drawing inspiration from his namesake line, he uses his recognizable trademark design to infuse effortless elegance alongside a much more romantic aesthetic. The proof is in the delicate sheer detailing, soft ruffle-front edges, and the pretty floral embellishments at the neckline of his shorter creation. With prices ranging from $1,200 to $3,000, it's the kind of capsule that delivers dreamy wedding-day confections without having to go (too) overboard on the investment.
