While on vacation with her family in Italy, Helena Christensen showed off her famous supermodel form — and a super sweet bikini. We're smitten with the all-over floral print and the summery vibe, so we hunted down a few of our favorite suits to re-create the look. We've done the shopping for you, just peruse and shop our editor's picks, and pack up a cute suit for your next beachy getaway.

If looking at Alexander Wang's Fall ad conjures up dark thoughts in your mind, you're on the right track. “We wanted something really gritty and raw to contrast with the polished richness of what we showed on the Fall runway,” said Wang. The ad, shot in Red Hook, Brooklyn, features beauty Raquel Zimmermann in wet motion wearing Wang's Streamer dress inside an abandoned grain factory. If you're loving the grimy and gorgeous imagery, check out Wang's complete video campaign tomorrow morning at AlexanderWang.com. However, NYC dwellers can check out the live action tonight when Wang takes over the city, (around 9 p.m.), with a series of projections showing the video campaign juxtaposed across a variety of locations for three straight nights. For now, tell us what you think of the ad.
The following is a story from our friends at one of our favorite shopping sources, Lucky magazine!
If you’ve been fortunate enough to spend time in the Bahamas, you’ve probably made it into Harbour Island’s The Sugar Mill. Owned by author-model-designer India Hicks (who also happens to be the daughter of famed interior decorator David Hicks and granddaughter of the Earl and Countess Mountbatten of Burma), the fashion and lifestyle boutique is a regular stop for locals and visitors alike, thanks to tastemaker Hicks’ eye for the eclectically elegant and beachy-chic. Now, she’s taken it all online, bringing her worldly style and relaxed island vibe to the Web. The refreshingly uncluttered and calmingly white-toned site features everything from $50 colorful sarongs and $45 bronzed sandals, to items from Hicks’ brand-new fine jewelry collection. See below for some of our favorite offerings, and be sure to visit sugarmillbyindiahicks.com to bring home your own little piece of the Bahamas.

When we need a quick outfit fix, we reach for our gold and silver jewels. Not as often do we think of adding larger doses of bronzed, glittery, or gilded metals to boost our look — but this batch of celebrity and street-styled moments has us convinced to kick our metallic intake up a notch with outfit accents that go beyond accessories. Think slick mercury-hues on a blazer à la Poppy Delevingne and Ferragamo Resort, pearly metallic tones on a pair of shorts, or a moody silvery shade on a cocktail sheath. It's not as hard to pull off as you think — just click through for the inspiration and the style how-tos.
"No matter the occasion, it is most important for a woman to feel great in what she is wearing," said Tracy Reese. That said, it's time for an exclusive look at her Plenty Holiday collection — we know; it's still Summer but the festive season will be here before you know it. The line, which Reese designed with the “party girl” in mind, shows off throwback '60- and '70s- inspired silhouettes. "The plenty collection is more youthful [than my signature line] with flirty silhouettes in gem tones," said Reese, who cited the classic black dress as her closet go-to. Regarding her use on prints, the designer noted: "I usually gain inspiration from my surroundings. Whether in New York or when I take trips to foreign cities, I am inspired by the people, architecture, and art that I encounter." Check out the slideshow to see more holiday inspiration from the Plenty byTracy Reese collection.
