Project Runway‘s 10th ‘Anniversary’ Party, celebrating the show’s impending tenth season (and eighth year), felt a lot like a reality TV high school reunion. Held under the Chelsea Market Overpass at New York’s High Line Park last night, the event saw throngs of contestants and coaches from all nine seasons reuniting sans air conditioning on what was the hottest night of the year so far.

The famous George Michael White Light video with Kate Moss we talked about just landed! And, guess what! Everybody was expecting to make some kind of (philosophical) sense out of it. Well, don’t! (duh!) it’s about the “white light” (the one at the end of the tunnel etcetera…) and, besides Kate Moss’s hair blowing in the wind I think I saw Godfrey Gao, a Zebra and the usual George Michael themes (policemen, undressed people dancing, urban architecture / interior style etcetera). Really philosophical indeed!

Welcome to the latest edition of What to Do, What to Wear, where we share fun activity ideas and tips on what to wear while doing them! (In case you missed it, see the first post on what to wear to a zoo.) By reader request, I’ve put together three cute, comfortable outfits to wear to a baseball game. I used the Pittsburgh Pirates’ colors (black and gold) for all of the outfits, but you could easily recreate them with your own team’s colors.
Ok, ok, I admit it — I’m not really a sports fan (which is practically a sin in Pittsburgh!). I go to the baseball games for the beautiful view of the city, yummy food, great company and Mrs. T’s Pierogie races. You’ll definitely see me more enamored with my nachos and cotton candy than the game.
For many women accessories are an afterthought, but for true style setters they are the starting point. We often find ourselves being inspired by the baubles, bags, shoes, scarves, and sunnies we encounter on a daily basis. In our line of work, our accouterments and our gadgets enable us to stand out from the crowd.
We recently set out to document some of our favorite summer statement pieces. From our grandmothers’ beads to our colleague’s arm candy, we found a plethora of sartorial stimuli to influence our summer style. Here, we’ve compiled our top pics using our sleek Ultrabook inspired by Intel, which is as light and effortless as the season itself.
Now you don’t have to sacrifice beauty for power. Introducing the ultra-sleek, ultra-responsive Ultrabook™, Inspired by Intel. Visit intel.com/ultrabook for more information.
For those of us in single-girl shoes, summertime is the perfect season to go out with new people. A first date can be intimidating enough, but planning a first date outfit can be a feat in itself. Locations and activities, shoes and height issues, comfort, weather, and of course first impressions all require contemplation.
To help ease the pain of outfit changes, sleepless nights, and frantic phone calls to your girlfriends before the big day, we have compiled a cheat sheet for you, complete with five sample outfits perfect for first dates, each one under $ 100 total.
We’re onto our third holiday suitcase for £100, and following the perfect beach kit and a capsule city break wardrobe, this time we’re turning our attention to anyone who’s staying in good old Blighty this Summer.
Now, we’ve heard there might actually be some Sun in the next few weeks, but given how terrible the weather has been up to this point, we’ll believe it when we see it. If you’re planning a holiday in this country, you need to pack layers. It’s a case of being ready for all eventualities, so this selection of products (which, would you believe, come in at £98 in total, including the coat) can be mixed and matched for either Sunny or rainy days.
Black leggings are ideal for popping under Summer dresses and playsuits to make them work in colder temperatures, and both them and the skinny jeans can be tucked into wellies if the need arises. Otherwise the gold flats are both comfy and fun, and they’ll go with everything. When the temperature hots up, go for the incredible £1.99 blue dress and a pair of rope sandals – add the belt from the jeans to pull the colour scheme together.
Although I wasn’t expecting something traditional and certainly not something ethereally pink, Lady Gaga’s perfume, Fame, is a flowery scent, even sweet (with apricot notes).
However, they say it’s not your average perfume (duh!) and that it doesn’t have a linear progression (meaning that it’s not like the classic scents – with top / middle / base notes but more like a pyramid – perfume structure).
