Beauty and the Geek: Lawmaker Wants Models Off Tech Visas
International geeks may be able to thank their beautiful counterparts for freeing up about 1,000 H1-B visas. Congressman Anthony Weiner, from New York, wants to end the practice of making foreign models and foreign hi-tech workers compete with each other for a limited number of work visas.
I wasn't lying when I said a light bulb went off in my head when I watched the video of Stella McCartney's garden party. Hence, I'm hosting a fun garden party for some close friends next weekend to recreate the resort fun. But this isn't any old garden party; I'm asking guests to dress up, a la Stella's latest collection. Think girly, sophisticated and ethereal.
I'll start you off with this Mesh Flower Headwrap ($16) because it's just the thing to get your creative juices flowing.

Cutie Coco Rocha is featured in the latest Neiman Marcus catalog ads. The luxury department store's latest claim is, "Bold color may be the season's message, but pure white always looks right." I can't argue with that. Coco is seen biting Chanel, lying with pearls, and showing off watches. I admit that it's nice to see some neutrality amid all the bright colors calling our names this Spring, but will it make me buy? Not so sure. Unless of course, someone gives me a lump sum for the Chanel! What do you think?
I'm a self-proclaimed flats queen, so I love that you all were feeling me this week. What's more exciting is that you didn't just find any old boring kinds. Your choices were quirky, each having something unique making them stand out. I'm so proud of your keen eye.
It may appear that we're giving away one bag, per usual, but really, we're giving away two: a clutch and a coin purse! The latest beauty up for grabs, this Goldenbleu Audra Candy Convertible Clutch ($650), is one of the most versatile we've offered because it can be carried on the shoulder with the chain link handle and as a clutch sans the handle. Plus, the coin purse can be detached and used on its own.

Just as I said that it's normal for fashion designers to draw inspiration from one another, one more case popped up to further prove my point. This time, Costume National looked to Rodarte's Fall '08 collection to create one of the pieces in its 2009 Resort line. The fashion world, moi-self included, were awestruck by Rodarte's innovative, beautifully crafted Fall gowns (left). I remember how airy yet strong they looked as they floated past me on the runway. Costume National's version is strikingly similar not only because of its lightness, but because of the abstract multicolor design and the one shoulder. I'm happy to see Rodarte's creativity being multiplied; it's too genius to only be enjoyed by the fashion elite.

The British are Coming! Topshop Readies to Hit America
We’ve been admirers of Topshop’s trendy and reasonably priced styles for a long time — especially the Kate Moss collections — but other than ordering it off of their British website and waiting for it to ship to the U.S., we haven’t had access. But that’s all going to change this fall! In October, Topshop is opening their first store in New York City and launching their U.S. website in September with most items set to be under $100.
