Another London It-Girl is descending upon New York fashion week. Alexander Wang is flying in model spawn Alice Dellal to host his after party. She's a little vulgar and probably a flash in the pan but her style is pretty spot on with whats going on with the party scene at the moment. With her partially shaved head, eclectic style and on again-off again affair with Monaco's Pierre Casiraghi this won't be the last we hear of her. Hopefully she'll be causing drama of Lohan proportions all week!
Daisy Lowe, the 19-year-old daughter of Gavin Rossdale and Pearl Lowe, looked stunning in a slashed Giles dress at the GQ Men of the Year awards in London on Tuesday night. I love how it wrapped her curves and her messy hair goes along with her model-rock'n'roll lifestyle. It's beautiful with an edge just like her. She was there with her 32-year-old boyfriend, Mark Ronson, who won the Alfred Dunhill Maverick award. They are definitely London's It-Couple right now. It'll be interesting to see whether they show up in New York in the next few days for Fashion Week!

I hope everyone had a great long weekend!
Last night was the return of the most fashionable show, Gossip Girl, and of course the most amazing fashion belonged to my personal fashion icon, Blair Waldorf (played by Leighton Meester.)
And Blair didn't disappoint...
Marc Jacobs? Check.
Ferragamo bag and LV luggage? Check!
But most importantly...
THAT VINTAGE STYLE PRINT ONE PIECE! Isn't it beautiful? I am obsessed.
Who else wants to swap places (or at least wardrobe and bank account) with Blair Waldorf?

My Karl Lagerfeld obsession only continues to grow. He's just teamed up with Neiman Marcus to create a limited edition Karl Lagerfeld teddy bear.
It just might be the best thing ever.
Kaiser Karl hilariously told W magazine,
"Nothing scares me more than people with some doll collection. Frightening...(But) Bears are very nice, as long as you are nice to them…Maybe I had one; I don’t remember. I never played with anything like toys. I wanted to be grown-up."
Want to get your paws on the adorable fashion bear? Well, like the master himself, he doesn't come cheap--he's selling for $1500!
He's sweet but I'll have to go to Build-A-Bear to get a Teddy Lagerfeld of my own!

I'm really excited to announce that I'm now a PR/Marketing/Communications intern at Dress in Boston! Don't worry I'll still be updating on a regular basis.

Here are some of the final results of the Kate Moss shoot for W September 2008...
And of course here are the definitely not safe for work or kids pictures from this month's Interview magazine of Kate Moss looking sinful.
I love the bleached hair and thick eyeliner. But Kate it's time to lose the cigarettes!

Laying around mostly naked and having water thrown on you all day for W magazine is a pretty tough way of making a living. Check out this behind the scenes video of Kate shooting in a traditional Turkish bath.

I was pretty excited to come home late last night and trip over a tiny UPS box placed inconveniently on my dark back porch. Well, okay once I got inside and saw that I wasn't terribly bruised I was concerned that I had sleep-shopped online and used my credit card without remembering it again. But then I opened the box and found out that someone at Neutrogena is a fan of Bostonista and sent me the Wave!
I had been wanting to try out the Wave for a while so I used it right away and tried it again today. But I have a prescription face wash so I'm always weary of trying new things on my face. But my dermatologist says that its a good idea to switch it up every once in a while so that it remains effective like with shampoo.
-The soap on the pads smell absolutely amazing.
-The vibrating sensation feels wonderful.
-It's fun and really simple. I did not feel like washing my face last night because for me its a whole process that takes forever. I just wanted to collapse. But I snapped on the foaming pad, turned on the wave and rubbed it over my face all that dirt, makeup and grime from the day was gone in no time at all.
-My skin was incredibly soft and smooth afterwards. It also continued to be tingly long after I was done using it.
-It's (obviously)waterproof which means you can use it in the shower.
-You really shouldn't use it two days in a row. Yes, my skin is now incredibly soft but the formula of the cleansing pads is very drying. Using them every day would over exfoliate your skin and leave it a dry mess.
-The pads aren't reusable which means a lot of waste washing your face with a regular cleanser wouldn't create and it would be expensive to keep buying the refills. The Wave comes with 14 pads and since it's recommended for daily use that means it's only two-weeks worth. At CVS the box of refills is $7.99 for a box of 30 cleansing pads.
-The pads aren't individually wrapped so as soon as you open the package you need to put it in a Ziploc bag so that they won't dry out before you even use them.
I think this is a great product when used as a supplement in addition to your usual skin care routine. So my final thought is that if you use it twice a week your skin will be super smooth and won't dry out. Plus, it'll be cheaper in the long run. I definitely recommend checking it out.
Thanks so much to Neutrogena for sending me The Wave!

You've probably noticed my icon before but if not it's a Chloe Sevigny wearing a Chloe cat mask:
But since I've been looking at this icon every day for almost six months it's started to seep into my mind. And I'm now officially obsessed with girls in masks and pissed off that I can't walk around in a mask all day, every day.
I just think they're glamorous!
See what I mean? Yes, they're mysterious and sexy but mostly I think they're just fun! The world is in a very serious place right now and fashion has mostly been reflecting that. I just want to have fun and these fashionable masks allow for escapism and fantasy just as fashion should! But I think for a night out we could make a cat mask work, couldn't we girls?
If you love the Chloe mask you should check out this one...
It looks remarkably similar and since it's mass produced I'm sure it's easy to find on other sites and at costume stores. Plus, it's less than $10! Lets make this photo shoot trend into a real world trend!

MK is creating her own grungy style by stealing old ideas from the early 90s and mixing it with her favorite contemporary pieces. A lot of people are screaming that she is the worst ever for even daring to wear a flannel shirt wrapped around her waist because she is "so obviously the complete opposite of what grunge stood for!" I think it's just comfortable and cute. And her obsessions never last that long anyway. I can understand the appeal I mean when I was 9 I thought Angela Chase was the epitome of style.
Totally obsessed with these shoes btw. If you know who they're by and where I can get a similar pair at a significantly lower price point that MK's that would be awesome!
I think it has more to do with finding a modern comfortable style than it does with trying to be "grunge" on MK's part. I also think, as I was saying, that her style obsessions are intense and whole hearted but fairly quick. In six months she'll be on to something down a completely path. But that's part of why I find her so inspiring-she evolves and yet is still always herself.
MK loves plaid so much that a few months ago she hosted a birthday party for her friend with a plaid theme. Yep, all the guests were wearing plaid and I bet there was even a plaid cake.
I'm also obsessed with MK's Alice-in-Wonderland-esque hair band-bow-thing!
