Shop the Look: Constellation Prizes

shop the look

Baby, what’s your sign? Even if you aren’t an astrology junkie, we can all agree that star-and-moon motifs have a universal appeal this season. Maybe it began with the fuzzy Saint Laurent cardigan from Fall ’13, which turned up on off-duty models and actresses alike, or perhaps it was Gravity, the blockbuster film set in the stunning Milky Way Galaxy. Slip on a pair of star-studded heels for a ladylike take on the trend, or opt for a glint-y clutch for a night on the town. However, if you’re into horoscopes, you can always just wear a zodiac charm and let destiny take care of the rest. Shop our favorite cosmos-inspired pieces by Khai Khai, Jimmy Choo, and more, below.

News Flash: Mayor Bloomberg Does Not Wear Jimmy Choos

-------

Tamara Mellon, Mayor BloombergTo say that Jimmy Choo founder Tamara Mellon’s new book, In My Shoes, is dishy would be an understatement. Friends and colleagues such as Ann Dexter-Jones, Alina Cho, and Wendi Murdoch gathered at the Four Seasons Grill Room last night to toast the tome, and Mellon’s candid remarks about her new memoir definitely made everyone eager to pick up a copy. In a way, In My Shoes represents her closure on what was not the most amicable of departures from the company she had built. Mellon told Style.com, “I was surprised at how cathartic writing this book was. It was about closing one chapter and starting a new one.”

Catharsis aside, Mellon confided that the most exciting part about last evening’s fete was getting introduced to the crowd by New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg. While the mayor spoke about Mellon’s business acumen, he couldn’t personally attest to the quality of her shoes: “I’ve never worn her shoes, and I’m very unlikely to. And if I do, I’m certainly not going to tell anybody. But they are wonderful. How do I know? I asked [my partner] Diana.” Later in the evening, Mellon offered, “That was such an honor. I really feel welcome to New York now!” However, considering how quickly guests snatched up copies of her book, and how many women were wearing Jimmy Choo shoes, it seems like the Big Apple would have welcomed her with or without the mayor’s approval.

Shop the Look: Mad for Plaid

Shop the Look:  Mad for Plaid

Unlike nautical stripes, island prints, and other on-trend patterns, plaid is associated with a wide range of moods, people, and periods in time. There’s the stiff school uniform we begrudgingly wore throughout our childhood; the “hipster” flannel button-downs lining the shelves at Urban Outfitters; the patchwork madras shorts popular in beach towns out East; and even the old-world tartans of Scottish clansmen. However, as of late, our favorite iteration has been distinctly punk. Marked by slouchy sweaters, second-skin leggings, and clashing hues, this new plaid is intentionally at odds with its preppy past, calling to mind seventies-era Vivienne Westwood and the Met’s Punk: Chaos to Couture exhibition. Worn with spikes, studs, and plenty of black leather, it feels more than appropriate for the upcoming transition into fall. Shop our favorite plaid wares from Marc by Marc Jacobs, McQ, and more, below.

1. Marc by Marc Jacobs Aimee trompe l’oeil plaid merino-wool sweater, $280, available at net-a-porter.com.

2. McQ Alexander McQueen tartan-print leggings, $345, available at shopbop.com.

3. Karen Walker Number One sunglasses, $250, available at shopbop.com.

4. Jimmy Choo Wheel studded suede slippers, $750, available at net-a-porter.com.
