On Our Radar: PI’A Womenswear

Fashion

PIA_butterboom

There is just something about womenswear that is classy and elegant; the kind that means you don’t have to show off too much skin to stand out. The way a classic white shirt can look just as sexy as an LBD.

That’s the essence of PI’A actually, where each collection begins with a reinterpretation of the classic womenswear staples. Observe:

With Priscilla I’Anson as the creative director, PI’A takes on womenswear staples and gives them unexpected twists. Just take a look at PI’A’s Fall/Winter 2016 collection, where the classic shirt is reinvented as a half shirt/half tube top and the jumpsuit is splashed with stunning red.

We also like the white blazer that oozes sex appeal when paired with LBS (little black shorts). A retro-ish mini dress gets a style update with split sleeves in PI’A Rivoli Dress, a piece inspired by the buildings that line Paris’ Rue Rivoli. The best part is that any of these pieces can be easily matched with favourites we already have in our wardrobe, so we can work these pieces to style a new outfit. (*adds all to cart*)

ANNA WINTOUR AND HUMA ABEDIN ARE HOSTING A PRE-FASHION WEEK RUNWAY SHOW FUNDRAISER WITH CHELSEA CLINTON

Fundraising is one of Anna Wintour's many talents, and she hasn't been shyabout her support of the Democratic party and presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, particularly since the former Secretary of State announced her candidacy in April 2015. (Wintour is also reportedly serving as Clinton's unofficial wardrobe consultant.) With a little more than two months left until the national election, Wintour is stepping up to the plate once again. But instead of hosting an intimate gathering at the home of powerful friends with deep pockets in Los Angeles, the Hamptons or Paris — as she's done in the past — the Vogue editor is bringing together Clinton's supporters in the fashion industry for a fundraising rooftop runway show at Spring Studios in New York City, two days before the official start of fashion week. 

While the evening's special guest will be Chelsea Clinton, Wintour's official co-host for Sept.is Huma Abedin, Clinton's top aide, Wintour's frequent co-host and current star of a six-page feature in Vogue's September issue. In addition, a whole host of designers will be present and contribute designs to the runway show, including Joseph Altuzarra, Public School's Dao-Yi Chow & Maxwell Osborne, Eva Fehren, Prabal Gurung, Brett Heyman, Marc Jacobs, Pamela Love, David Neville & Marcus Wainwright, Monique Péan, Tanya Taylor, Thakoon, Diane von Furstenberg and Jason Wu. Tory Burch and Georgina Chapman, who have both hosted fundraisers for Clinton before, will also be in attendance. Several of the aforementioned designers have already shown their support for Clinton by designing fundraising merch the campaign calls the "Made for History" collection.

Of course,  While a standing room only ticket is just $100, one front row spot will run you $2,700 — and that's without access to the VIP reception. For those looking to make a night of it, a "Hillsquad Package" of five front row tickets, VIP reception and rooftop party access clocks in at $25,000. 

The candidate herself is not announced to attend, but she might be in town. Clinton is scheduled to speak at the The Commander-in-Chief Forum live from New York City the following evening.

Mila Kunis Has Always Dressed Like Jackie From That '70s Show, You Just Never Noticed Until Now

Fashion

When Mila Kunis stepped out in LA wearing a retro-inspired tunic, we said, "Jackie, is that you?" It was a happy coincidence that the actress's paisley-print dress resembled somethingher character owned on That '70s Show. For fans who don't remember, Jackie wore a similar boho gown on the show to cover up her own baby bump. IRL, Mila gave the maternity dress a modern spin, pairing it with simple Stan Smiths.

This isn't even the first time Mila's channeled '70s vibes with her outfit. We flashed backed to a handful of other times she may have secretly borrowed styling tips from Jackie. Ahead, see photos of Mila as her alter ego, then compare her outfits in reality. Life really does imitate art!

This Is Going To Be The Biggest Hair-Color Trend This Fall

Fashion

This past April, Emma Roberts brought a new hair color into the spotlight when she and her team of stylists atNine Zero One whipped up a custom shade for her to wear to Coachella. Emma, along with salon co-owners and pro stylists Riawna Capri and Nikki Lee, dubbed the hue Desert Rose owing to its red and blonde tones. The final step was infusing Emma’s blonde strands with pink to fully transform her into a rose-gold beauty.

Back then we predicted that hairstylists everywhere would soon receive an influx of rose-gold hair requests, and it turns out we were right. In a recent interview with PopSugar, colorist Tamara DeFelice declared it’ll be one of the hottest hair colors for fall: “Play up your fall blonde by asking [your stylist] to add in hues of rich rose gold and butterscotch.” Evidently, the transformation is easy for blondes, but that’s not to say brunettes shouldn’t give it a try. “It will accentuate the peach and gold tones in women with warmer skin,” said Tamara, “and will bring out the honey tones in their eyes.”

Well, there you have it. Try something a little different when heading to the salon before the season starts to change.
