The 15 Stylish Looks You Loved Most This Week


01mWith fashion week but a month away, summer is drawing to a close for That being said, we’re embracing the sunshine as much as possible before NYFW, namely with our Look of the Day polls. This week, we asked you to vote on your favorite minidresses, beachy braids, and even skateboards—things we will surely miss when the chill settles in. On Tuesday, we focused on feminine lace dresses in super-bright hues. Dior’s nearly-neon citrus frocks won your vote, while Elle Fanning’s embroidered orange Christopher Kane dress was a close second. Coming in third was Valentino’s striped number from Resort ’15, which would be perfect for a last-minute jaunt to Spain.

On Wednesday, we rounded up the coolest beat-the-heat summer braids. Amber Heard’s one-sided plait (which also showed off a glittering chandelier earring) won your vote and likely inspired hundreds of DIY versions. Rita Ora got in on the action with rainbow-dyed cornrows at Radio 1′s Big Weekend back in May, and Diane Kruger wore an intriguing double-braid to the premiere of The Birdge. On Friday, we found enough cool skateboarding pictures to make you reconsider your morning commute. Cara Delevingne, Binx Walton, and just about every guy on the Venice Boardwalk definitely know how to ride in style. Click here for all of the week’s winners, plus a few runners-up for additional summer inspo.

Johnny Depp Joins the Bling Ring


Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp was photographed in Beijing on Monday wearing a diamond ring, thus confirming his engagement to actress Amber Heard. Apparently, this is news—no, not the fact that he’s engaged, the fact that he’s wearing a diamond engagement ring. Sure, it’s a little bit unorthodox, but goodness knows it looks better than the fratty beaded “man” jewelry that bros seem to favor these days. And despite the fact that Depp ambiguously called it a “chick’s ring,” his accouterment just might spur a whole new kind of marriage equality.

Amber Heard: Unexpectedly Chic?


Amber Heard in New York CityMemo to fashion-show organizers: Is it time to add Amber Heard to your front-row invite lists? The young actress is enjoying a new boost in popularity, thanks to her relationship with Johnny Depp, but the surprise is not the May-December romance (he’s 50, she’s 27), but how well she’s been holding her own against Mr. Depp’s famous stylishness. That redoubtable organ The Daily Mail dedicated a page today to her dog-walking style, and we’re inclined to agree that she looks great in an oversize coat (expressively tied à la Celine Fall ’13), skinny jeans, and booties. The last two may be young-actress standard-issue, but Heard manages to elevate them to a gamine place that Lou Doillon or Charlotte Gainsbourg would recognize. See you in February, then?

The Heavenly Host (Committee)


Fresh from his Malibu event to reveal an Angel—that’d be Gisele Bündchen—as his new campaign face, David Yurman headed for Heaven. Yurman joined the Art of Elysium’s Jennifer Howell last night at the L.A. home of artist and musician Mark Mothersbaugh (famously of Devo, to say nothing of many Wes Anderson soundtracks) to toast the host committee of the nonprofit’s 2013 Heaven Gala. Justin Bartha, Abigail Spencer (pictured, right), and Amy Smart were among the Young Hollywood-ites who turned out for the evening, but it was Amber Heard (pictured, left) who elicited singling out from Howell. “Did you know she’s bilingual?” she asked the crowd. The actress makes use of her two languages in her work for the L.A.-based organization, which encourages artists, actors, and musicians to donate their time and talent to seriously ill children. “She’s in the hospital with the kids—and talking to them—every chance she gets.”

The evening presented itself as an opportunity for David Yurman, in town for a mini tour that includes the reopening of his expanded Rodeo Drive flagship, to lend his support and champion the charity that has become a cause célèbre for celebs. “We want to find some way to give back,” he said, and Art of Elysium is “heroic, and unbelievably charitable.” Heroico, as Heard might say.

What Is It About The Sixties That Keeps Us Coming Back?


The early sixties were a favorite reference point on the Fall runways, and as Fashionista recently pointed out, that’s led to an abundance of mod-themed editorials in the new September magazines. It’s worth adding that our culture’s current fascination with the youthquake years goes way beyond fashion. There’s Mad Men, of course, which is finally, officially beginning to produce its fifth season, but next month sees the release of two more decade-specific shows: Pan Am, starring Christina Ricci as a jet-age stewardess, and The Playboy Club, featuring twenty-first-century pinup Amber Heard as a Bunny at the original Chicago club. (Talk about male wish fulfillment!) Then there’s the big screen—and no, we’re not talking about the rumored fourth Austin Powers film. We’ll Take Manhattan is scheduled to come out next year and tells the tale of photographer David Bailey and model Jean Shrimpton’s era-defining fling. We know just the thing to wear to the premiere: a black and white fur coat from Christopher Bailey’s Shrimpton-inspired Burberry Prorsum collection.
