When we spotted this adorable photo of designer and blogger Joy D. Cho in Anthropologie's magazine, it served as a timely reminder Cho's fabulous gold wallpaper design (seen in the background here). We've been eying up gold wallpapers for a while, and we're bringing you nine of our current favorites — including Cho's, of course!
This week in 1977, arguably one of the most influential clubs in history — Studio 54 — opened its doors at 254 West 54th Street, Manhattan, to the dancing public. Catering to a wide variety of clientele, the club welcomed gay and straight, black and white, famous, infamous, and totally anonymous guests. It was, by all accounts, absolutely the place to be seen in the late '70s.
Not only was the clientele special, but the space itself was, too. Cavernous in size, the club had a stage, balconies, sitting areas with tables, and a spacious parquet wood dance floor. Strobe lights in the form of columns flanked the club and a mirrored main bar under the balconies was in close proximity to the dance floor. A variety of other spaces, such as the infamous "Rubber Room" (which could be sprayed down), as well as a basement frequented by celebrities, made up the rest of the club.
Today, we're going to take you through some shots of the club's decor, and of course, it's famous celebrity clientele, including Halston, Michael Jackson, Woody Allen, Andy Warhol, and many more. Keep clicking for a look back at the fabulous '70s at Studio 54, and our interpretations of the looks for a modern home.
For Fall 2012, designers set the gold standard with gorgeously gilded pieces perfect for any glamour girl. From Prabal Gurung's liquid-looking gown to Rachel Zoe's fur-topped minidress, this precious hue was popping up all over our favorite runways. Watch our full trend report to see all the ways you'll be going for gold come Fall!
Temperley London's Fall 2012 collection was as good as gold, literally. Inspired by the decadence of religious paintings and tapestries from the Renaissance, Alice Temperley turned out glamour girls in shiny pantsuits, lovely lamé, and brocade and velvet dresses. A military-inspired cape coat and a velvet jumpsuit were standouts in our eyes, but watch the entire runway show to see what your favorite pieces are!

Click through for 12 gorgeous ways to wear what's arguably the luxest look around — from day to night to every moment in between — as seen on the streets of recent Fashion Weeks.

Shine on! Our girls Fab and Geek know a trend when they see it and gold is where it's at this Spring. The rich, shiny metal is moving off mama's ears, neck, and wrists and onto lil one's waists and toes. Though usually reserved for dress up, gold is taking a more casual turn this season, as seen on a glittery pair of classic Jack Purcell sneakers and an infant-sized pair of Uggs. Mama can join in the gold revolution with a metallic diaper bag. Want to jump on this trend? Start shopping by clicking on any of the images above!
As spotted on Fab, the big trend for Spring is gold. Shiny, sophisticated, and sun-kissed, a little touch of gold makes even the most boring accessory — hello, HP USB drive ($20) — look regal. On the other end of the spectrum are products that are already blinging on their own like this VAIO laptop ($1,200) or Lumix Panasonic digital camera ($350); the gold sheen merely adds to the luster.

Want to look sun-kissed before the first beach day? We're loving Eniko Mihalik's warm sheen for Harper's Bazaar's March editorial — and we took notes. Layer golden hues with abandon. Stack bangles, layer necklaces, and pair it with rich mustard and golden tones. It could be a strappy Giuseppe Zanotti gold shoe ($695) popping out from skinny See by Chloé pants ($108, originally $270), or a series of cuffs adding a warrior-like quality to your arm. Work the gold standard, and you'll shine.
Anthology magazine's sophomore issue is due out soon and there's a sneak preview live online now to tease us. The feature I'm most excited to read is the tour of the San Diego home of stylist Kelly Lilien of the wildly popular style blog Mrs. Lilien. I absolutely love everything Kelly produces and there's no doubt in my mind that her home is an enchanting place.
From just this glimpse into her home (left), I can already spot some serious creativity. To put her own "Mrs." spin on her 1930s Spanish bungalow, Kelly gilded the wood beams in her living room, and then moved onto the fireplace logs! "The space was screaming for something super special," she explains. "There was a need for a pièce de résistance. Once I realized how magical it was, I kept going." If that's not enchanting, I don't know what is.
