Kate Moss's travel style is just as cool as her street-wear. Check out the Super at London's Gatwick airport looking sly and svelte in all black. Painting it black, like Fab! I love all the varying textures in her outfit, as well as the different proportions. While we're on the subject — first photos of Kate's Longchamp collection are out! Big day for Mossie.

I’m taking it back to the disco era with my black silk halter jumpsuit. This piece has been my stylish sidekick ever since I purchased it at a local San Francisco boutique a while back — I've worn it to a wedding, an engagement party, and on a date. And this evening, it's accompanying me on a girls' night out! So as not to be too ‘70s, I modernized my look via a black blazer, caged sandals, a silver tassel necklace, and stacked bangles.
Is it me or did celebs all of a sudden join in our Paint It Black fun? I've been keeping an eye out for fellow noirs, and everyone from Penelope Cruz to George Clooney to Jennifer Connelly to John Mayer have been dipping themselves in all black. Even a few Fab readers have gone noir. Mila Kunis wore a one-shouldered LBD and black pumps to the premiere of The Book of Eli. Julia Restoin-Roitfeld attended The Last Station NYC premiere in a studded LBD, a black leather jacket, and black pumps. And Vanessa Hudgens partied in LA in all black with silver jewels and a black Chanel bag. Enter to see more blacked out celebs, as well as Fab's noir ensembles from the week.
When I think black, three words come to mind: sleek, chic, Paris! Since the European fashion capital is a huge source of inspiration for moi — check out my 10 Fashion Observations, Straight From Paris — I had to base my first outfit around it. Do I succeed in looking la chic Parisienne?
Looking to shake up our fashion fascination, we're embarking on a fashion challenge — care to join? Ask Fab what our favorite colors are, and black will be at the top of the list. It is fashion's official color, after all. Safe, yes, but also dramatic, chic, and flattering. I'm not just singing praise for black because Stevie Nicks once said blondes look great in black; I'm advocating it because it's totally versatile and always appropriate.
Need further proof? Team Fab is here to deliver. For the next 30 days, we're going to show you our attempts at head-to-toe black leading up to New York Fashion Week, where black is omnipresent. Three different women, three different styles, three different bodies — one color.
Join our Paint It Black fashion group to feed the challenge. My kickoff outfit is part Kate Moss-inspired, part Cool Rider-inspired. You can't go wrong in cool booties, sexy jeans, a black v-neck sweater, and mixed jewels. Click over to see my PIB outfit details and start painting yourself black!
I absolutely love the Ferm Living Silk Treebomb Pillow ($110). It's really eye-catching and has an ethereal, wintry quality that's just plain dreamy. But, as much as I think sometimes it's worth it to spend upwards of $100 on a pillow, I'm still wary of it because I've seen so many equally arresting designs at more palatable prices. Turns out, there's a pillow that's a near twin to this one, that'll require much less penny pinching. Want to see it?
So, for all of you who have gal pals out there who love to decorate with lots of black, I've rounded up a few of the prettiest black accents that I could find online. Pass them on to a girlfriend this holiday season (or keep one for yourself!).
While many of us are reluctant to stray from the whites and neutrals that currently adorn our walls, there can be a big payoff when you go for bold color. Not sure whether to believe me? Then check out these dark wall colors and wallpapers to see what I mean. You might just be convinced!
Black may be basic and the expected color of PCs and cell phones, but it can be just as sleek and chic as white and silver. It hides stains and scratches and projects an air of seriousness. I mean, there's a reason offices filled with accountants and lawyers use black laptops and desktops and not cherry red minis, right? To see some of my favorite black gadgets, which are anything but basic, check out the widget below.
