Join us as we set out to inspire health food cravings by talking Taste with people whose lives have been shaped by it. In the first episode of our video series, we spend a day with the acclaimed Chef Jonathan Justus who provides us a little more “texture” on the topic of taste.
Jessica Alba isn't the only one digging the cobalt and chartreuse trend — Rachel Bilson worked the bright color combo while appearing on The Marilyn Denis Show in Canada. She paired a silk cobalt 3.1 Phillip Lim tank ($350) with chartreuse ShoeMint peep-toe t-strap platform sandals, then completed her look via black wide-leg trousers by The Row. Get in on the popular color combo via similar pieces below, including Rachel's exact top, or don cobalt jeans with a chartreuse tank for a more casual approach.
The return of the bombshell was evident on many Spring runways, with designers like Prada, Marc by Marc Jacobs, and Dolce & Gabbana paying homage to the '50s knockout with bustier dresses and printed bodysuits. When it comes to choosing a swimsuit this season, there are tons of full-coverage, curve-flaunting options out there — making it more than easy to channel your inner Marilyn Monroe or Elizabeth Taylor in ladylike balconet bras, high-waisted bikini bottoms, and pinup-chic one-pieces. We've rounded up 10 of our most-loved maillots and retro swimwear for Summer; just click through now to see and shop them all.
Amy Smart was all smiles in a black sleeveless Joe's Jeans tank ($138), peep-toe pumps, and a pair of super-cool electric daisy-print Joe's Jeans ($179) at a party in LA. The blond beauty complemented her black and blue ensemble with a chain-strap shoulder bag, coal-rimmed eyes, and pink nail polish. Hollywood is officially obsessed with denim, from every color of the rainbow to fresh and funky prints, and we love how Amy's printed skinny jeans combined the best of both. Work her exact pair with a black tank and black pumps for a night out, swap black for neon pieces during the day, then come Fall, match it with a chunky sweater and lace-up booties to brave the cold in style.
Jessica, Eva, Sofia, and More Dressed to Impress at Glamour's Women of the Year Awards in London — Who Nailed It?
Further proof that the killer style didn't slow with the close of the Cannes Film Festival? This evening's A-list red carpet at Glamour's Women of the Year awards in London. Jessica Alba stepped out in a tulle and satin ribbon-embellished black gown for a touch of darker elegance, bombshell Sofia Vergara stuck to her body-con silhouettes in a pink-hued Zac Posen fit-and-flare minidress, and Eva Longoria kept it sleek in a superbright orange Victoria Beckham sheath and Brian Atwood pumps. But it doesn't stop there: Lea Michele chose an ink-blue pre-Fall 2012 Zac Posen gown that draped off her shoulders perfectly, Natalia Vodianova donned a more futuristic take on the LBD courtesy of Versace, and Kylie Minogue shimmered in a gold Stella McCartney confection. We've rounded up nine of the chicest celebs to hit the awards' red carpet — now it's time for you to weigh in. Let us know in the comments below who gets your vote for best dressed!
Diane Kruger strolled arm in arm with boyfriend Joshua Jackson at the airport in Nice donning a paneled chambray dress, Isabel Marant booties, and the perfect Summer accessories: white sunglasses and a straw fedora. The actress has been on a hot streak in Cannes from her lace-up Versus minidress to her stunning red-carpet gowns, but we love how the A-lister went from high fashion to real life with such ease. Re-create Diane's effortless look with a detailed denim dress, suede ankle boots, and a straw fedora for a daytime look, or sport your denim dress with these colorful ikat UGG espadrilles ($105, originally $150) and a bright bag for a bold combo.
With Summer's warmth a key player in our daily wardrobe choices, we couldn't think of a better way to show off a little skin. This peekaboo trend provides an outlet for slightly sexier styling with just the right amount of "better left to the imagination" attached. From strategically placed sheer panels to see-through skirt hems, to barely there necklines, we love that these Summer pieces render ultrafeminine silhouettes paired with even more feminine sheer details. Try a sportier take via one semisheer Alexander Wang topper, lounge around in a slouchy see-through tee, or opt for a floaty printed Edun shirtdress perfect for a chic office ensemble. It's easy to exude sheer brilliance this season, and we've got 15 perfect ways to flaunt it. Click through and shop our editors' picks now.
While most of us enjoyed a nice long holiday weekend, Taylor Swift hit the recording studio in Santa Monica in a pair of standout polka-dot pants that we love. Printed pants are a serious Summer must-have — Jessica Alba, Olivia Palermo, and Solange Knowles have already tried out this trend — and Taylor's more subdued approach on the patterned-pant look is spot-on. She paired her polka dots with a crisp light blue button-down, and velvet red loafers that perfectly match her cherry red lips. Watch today's Fab Flash to hear more about Taylor's stylish holiday get-up. On Allison McNamara: Topshop blouse, Skirt from Shareen Vintage.
