20 Successful Habits I Learned Working For Two Billionaires (Part 1)

Image
I have spent decades “being educated” –  in college, graduate school, numerous professional certifications, and now a PhD program. All of that schooling and training helped shape the person I am today, but at no point in my life has there been a more profound education than my time working for Enver Yucel and Oprah Winfrey.

American Apparel knows how to stir up public fascination and more importantly publicity.

When Did He Wear It Better? Kanye West in Rabbit Fur Long Coat

It’s been awhile since we’ve seen Kanye West wearing this particular full length rabbit fur coat. The last time we spotted him wearing it was back in January of 2011 out in NYC.

Juergen Teller Didn’t Want to Photograph Miley Cyrus for Those Marc Jacobs Ads

Image
Perhaps even more interesting than the fact that Marc Jacobs chose Miley Cyrus to be the face of his Spring 2014 ad campaign is that Juergen Teller — who’s pretty much photographed any MJ campaign ever — didn’t shoot it.

Alyssa’s Sexy Lace-Up Sandals

Image
Anyone who knows me well can tell you that I am a flats girl, all the way. While I own my fair share of heels, they spend 95 percent of their time high up on the top shelf in my closet (that I can’t even reach without a chair to stand on) in their shoe bags. But, while browsing the new arrivals at the Alexander Wang store on Grand Street, I immediately did a double take when I saw these.

Alexander Wang Spring 2014 Campaign Is a ’90s Cool Kid’s Dream

Image
Smokin’ in the girls’ room is right. Alexander Wang‘s Spring 2014 collection was built on ’90s nostalgia — think logos galore, grungy hair and all when of the albums we wanted to buy were slapped with giant “Parental Advisory” stickers — and the campaign to go along with it, first released inWWD, is just the same. Starring Anna Ewers (who opened Wang’s spring show), shot bySteven Klein and styled by Karl Templer, the cheeky campaign is one of our favorites of the season.

For her to share these values, it instantly let me know this is the person I’ve always wanted.” Mariah on Nick: “Having babies definitely strengthened our bond because all the love that you have for each other is manifested into these two incredible beings.”

We needed [to be] in each other’s life, and that’s what’s been able to sustain this relationship all those years.”.

Gold Metal: 15 Shoes That Look Dressed Up VIA NY MAG

Image
The not-so-subtle season has arrived. It's a dolled-up time of year when even a pair of classic black boots can feel boring. While glittering, bejeweled options are plentiful (because they are awesome), minimalists and devotees to a plain black shoe need options, too. Gold hardware and detailing are an instant way to dress up your shoes — and are likely a wise investment, as you can get more mileage out of a black loafer with a gold chain than you can a hypercolored sequined stiletto. The market is full of amazingly slick styles — Chloé's boot with gold buckles, for example, is chic and super wearable, and J.Crew's gold-tipped pump is ready for any holiday fête. Click ahead to see fifteen pairs of gilded shoes to ring in the season. SEE DETAILS BELOW

Outfit of the Week: Goldfinch Blues

Image
In cold weather like this, we love an incredible book, like The Goldfinch. This week, we took our inspiration from the actual bird, and mixed soft golds with cooler shades and textures — like heather-grey wool and bright blues. Wear a sleek gold stacked-heel boot, like this one from Zara, along with a punchier accent, like a solid stripe, to mimic the bird's black and white tail feathers. Carry a two-tone blue clutch to carry all of your essentials, including this season's must-read. SEE DETAILS BELOW

Beyoncé’s Diets Are the Most Effective I Have Ever Tried BY REBECCA HARRINGTON

Image
I have seen Beyoncé’s HBO documentaryLife Is But a Dream, a startling number of times.  There are so many parts I like: When Beyoncé brings her computer into an elevator and films herself in the elevator. When Beyoncé talks to a mysterious man off-camera who is wearing glasses. When Beyoncé says, “Life is but a dream!” to Jay-Z and Feist is playing in the background. I could go on.
