Prabal Gurung's models walked his Fall 2012 runway with vibrant blue eye shadow, a look inspired by the brilliant tones of peacock feathers. MAC senior makeup artist Cynthia Rivas joined us at PopSugar Studios to re-create the avian style — and prove this color scheme isn't just for the birds.
Eddie Borgo "was listening to The Kills' new album a lot" while designing his Fall 2012 jewelry collection, so it's no wonder the band's lead singer, Alison Mosshart, ended up as his campaign star.
Borgo's collection is in part inspired by New York City and "the joints, railways, tunnels, and engineering systems that hold it together," he says. "But, in another way, the collection also is always inspired by the few true personalities that make up the culture of the city — the way in which music, specifically, colors the attitudes and outlook of its people. Alison could not be a better representation of rock music today."
Mosshart isn't the first city girl Borgo has used for his campaign. In the past, Kate Lanphear, Giovanna Battaglia, and Cecilia Dean have posed for the ads. A look at Mosshart's campaign here in the gallery.

All week the Spring '13 runways have made us long for warmer weather and a bright palette — cue Zara's latest TRF lineup to change all that. With the labels' new moody hues, camo prints, and wooly, cozy textures, we're actually excited for the temps to finally cool. We're envisioning a Fall uniform of black skinnies, topped with one of the collection's cool camo hoodies or oversize leather vests. As always, Zara makes it easy to give your staples a trendier-minded boost — this season that means distressed tweeds, embellished jackets (the kind that give your tees and tanks a touch of the Baroque vibe), and quilted leather. It's a little Parisian, a little rocker-chic, very Kate Moss-meets-Emmanuelle Alt — and all at Zara's TRF lower price point. Read on for our takeaways, then click through to get a glimpse of the full Fall lineup.
- With all the trendier fare to choose from, this wool coat would lend a classic, menswear-inspired contrast. It's the kind you can wear season after season without worrying if it's "out of style."
- A little Baroque, and very cool — this embellished jacket would help us get dressed up in a snap.
- These skinny-fit camo pants make it easy to experiment with the trend. We'll style them up with an oversize boyfriend sweater and ankle boots to test the waters.
This Fall, we're looking to embossed totes, moody hues, and rich calf hair to make the shift accordingly — of course, we all have our respective favorites when it comes to staking out the best bags of the season. Inside, we've culled the picks of our whole editorial team — some make the case for brilliant color, others for structure, even some metallics. There's a bag to suit every girl from designer favorites like Phillip Lim, Wang, Mulberry, and more, so click on — this is a mixed bag of only the best purses, satchels, and crossbody beauties to hit the shelves this season.
It's Fall, which means it's time to swap out your sundresses for this season's hottest coat styles. Accordingly, we've rounded up the five biggest trends in outerwear for this Fall. From cropped to military and this season's cocoon silhouettes, stay tuned to see the jackets you need to invest in to style out your look when the temperatures drop. On Allison McNamara: Topshop top.
Inspired by the cool girls stepping out for Fashion Week, it seems only fitting that the looks in Free People's September issue read like a how-to in crafting that quintessential downtown vibe. Likewise, Martha Hunt (FP's muse of late) is a dead ringer for the coolest of cool girls, Kate Moss, as she's photographed strolling the streets of London in a leopard-print coat and fedora, throwing a fur over her overalls, and stepping out for a night out in the sexiest kind of LBD. Flipping through the pages of this lookbook instantly spoke to our wish to appear as effortlessly chic all season; accordingly, we've culled the big takeaways. Read on to glimpse Free People's latest looks — and the styling tips you'll need to get the look this Fall.
They say there's a style for every mood and a mood for every season. Luckily, it just so happens that this season there are plenty of moods to choose from — especially when it comes to the latest crop of bags. Feeling sweet? Jason Wu's Daphne frame clutch, with its hand-embellished beading, may be just the thing. Craving something a little more rugged? Rag & Bone's cargo pocketed Pilot tote in whiskey-hued leather is sure to satisfy. And for those who just want something lovely to tote from point A to point B (and everywhere in between), there's a bevy of satchels, carryalls, and shoulder bags ready to do the bidding.

Forget (momentarily) what you would normally associate with leather wares — moto-inspired jackets, edgy rocker pants, and zipper-lined vests — and instead, get acquainted with Fall's new school of ladylike leather. The luxe material has gotten a makeover of sorts, the kind that comes with a totally refined, sophisticated polish. Tory Burch presented blue peplum-infused jackets (pictured) paired with matching fitted pencil skirts, Valentino offered up the ultimate in romance via delicate leather cutout sheaths, and Monique Lhuillier gave us an LRD with a retro-meets-sultry vibe. And with equally feminine leather driving gloves and wide cummerbund-style belts to complement each look, it's that much easier to achieve this slick autumnal glamour. We've culled a mix of pieces — at all price points — that reflect this ladylike state-of-mind, so just keep clicking to shop your favorites.
Remember during Couture week when Anna Dello Russo was spotted frolicking around Place Vendome in a pink ball gown and toting a set of turquoise luggage? Turns out that luggage — and in fact all the accessories she was wearing, right down to the bejeweled gator sunglasses perched atop her head — belong to her upcoming H&M collaboration. (The dress was Oscar de la Renta; the frolicking, part of a photo shoot for the September issue of Vogue Russia.)
Now that the issue of Vogue Russia has finally hit newsstands, those images — plus others — have made their way onto the web. What they reveal is not only a much more complete look at the collection, but also a much more intriguing one. Diamante "A" earrings, oversized chain necklaces emblazoned with Dello Russo's name, hinged alligator collars, giant deer charms, bejeweled minaudieries, gold ankle booties — all the pieces are big, glitzy, and very ADR.
Click through for a first look at the collection — hitting H&M stores worldwide Oct. 4 — in the slideshow.
More Fall 2012 ad campaigns have cropped up, and with them, another batch of perfectly cozy layers, luxurious cold-weather textures, and rich jewel tones to crave. Arizona Muse showed off Diane von Furstenberg's playful take on logo love, Karlie Kloss wrapped up in colorful knits for Stefanel, while Gisele Bundchen wore little more than her David Yurman best in the jewelry designer's campaign. Kate Moss reprised her role as Milan-based brand Liu Jo's leading lady, Topshop enlisted a new cast of fresh faces for its low-key ads, and UU Uniqlo Undercover went for A Bug's Life-inspired glamour. All this, plus more Fall '12 treats from Theyskens' Theory, Ralph Lauren, and Karl Lagerfeld, after the jump.
