Haute Moments from the Dior Couture Show: Crazy Onesies, Fancy Raincoats, and More

Paris Couture Fashion Week is officially off! Last season, we saw some zany prints (think: rats and pigeons), cool gown-pant hybrids, and couture bike shorts sprinkled amid breathtaking creations. We didn’t think it was possible, but this season, couturiers have truly one-upped themselves.

To wit: Raf Simons inspired awe and shock when he opened the Dior Haute Couture spring 2015 show with what could be mistaken for raincoats, albeit fancy raincoats (below). The idyllic plastic toppers, crafted from what we can only venture to guess was PVC printed with scenic florals, practically upstaged the sequin-encrusted minis underneath.

But if that didn’t elicit shock, the line-up of crazy one-pieces sure will. There were some wonderfully and chaotically printed in haphazard lines punctuated with graphic shapes, while there were others  that were striped and doused in all-over sequins (above).

And there were, of course, beautiful pannier-style pieces (a silhouette that carried over from last season) and other dreamy numbers to cry (slash drool) over. Ahead, check out the other couture moments from Dior, along with Atelier Versace, Schiaparelli, and more.

Happy Birthday, Britney Spears! See the Star’s Best Beauty Moments Through the Years


December 2, 2014 @ 7:14 am

Happy birthday, Britney Spears! The performer rings in her 33rd year today. It seems like just yesterday that the one-time brunette shot to stardom with her single “Baby One More Time” at the age of 16. Since then, the Princess of Pop has delivered chart-topping hits and best-selling fragrances, has launched a lingerie and sleepwear collection, and has even delved into acting with her leading role in 2002’s Crossroads, opposite Zoe Saldana and Taryn Manning, and her stint on How I Met Your Mother.

The Grammy winner currently headlines her own Vegas show (she’s had the residency for the past year) and plans to stick around through 2016. It’s been a whirlwind career for Spears—who as a working mom to sons Sean, 9, and Jayden, 8, makes it look seamless—and her recipe for success couldn’t be more straightforward. She tells InStyle, “Finding balance and happiness—and being healthy” are the keys to a fulfilled life.

Chloe Sevigny Is 40! See Her Most Stylish Moments Here


November 18, 2014 @ 7:17 am

Happy birthday, Chloe Sevigny! The actress celebrates a major milestone today–her 40th birthday. Sevigny has starred in a medley of films and TV shows, including Boys Don’t Cry, Big Love, American Horror Story, and The Mindy Project, to name a few. Acting chops aside, the star is also known for her unique sense of style, which she touched upon last year. “I think that you shouldn’t be afraid of being an individual,” Sevigny told InStyle. “People are so afraid of criticism, especially from all of the tabloid magazines and stuff, but I think that the InStyles of the world always seem to celebrate individuality more, so I just keep that in mind.” Hear, hear! In honor of Chloe Sevigny’s birthday, we’re taking a look back at her top 10 style moments so far.

Happy 45th Birthday, Gwen Stefani! From Punk Princess to Glamour Queen, See Her Best Beauty Moments

Happy birthday, Gwen Stefani! The positively ageless performer turns 45 today. Best known for being the frontwoman of No Doubt, Stefani has certainly come a long way since her combat boot-wearing and mesh top-rocking days (though we’re still big fans of her punk rock roots!) The Voice coach and L.A.M.B. designer can put a glamorous spin on any outfit, as we saw at this year’s VMAs and Emmys, and isn’t afraid to stand out—in fact, her signature edgy-chic look is her trademark. “I’m the girl who would wear baggy jeans but didn’t forget to put on tons of makeup,” Stefani has said of her early days with No Doubt. And we wouldn’t want it any other way!

The Explicit Scene You Won’t See in This Is Where I Leave You! Plus More Candid Moments Straight from the Cast

What happens when you put Jason Bateman, Tina Fey, Connie Britton, Kathryn Hahn, Jane Fonda, Corey Stoll, and Adam Driver in a house together for a whole straight week? A lot of funny stories, apparently!

When we caught up with the stars of the film This Is Where I Leave You in Toronto at InStyle and Forevermark’s pop-up portrait lounge, they shared some behind the scenes moments with us, and one hot scene that ended up ended up on the cutting room floor. “I had the best time making this movie,” Britton, who plays Tracy, the spicy older girlfriend to Driver’s character, Phillip, told InStyle. “We were shooting at a house in Long Island and we had a bedroom assigned to us to all hang out in between scenes, so we would be together for 12 hours a day in this one room.”

Sounds fitting for a movie that is about a family that is reunited after the death of their father, whose last wish was for his family to sit shiva for one week in their mother’s home. “There was a lot of playing Words with Friends,” says Corey Stoll, who plays eldest brother Paul in the family comedy. “Jason [Bateman] is the best at the game. And Tina [Fey] is really good. But I’m pretty good, too,” Stoll told InStyle, with a sly smile. Swap over to when the cameras started rolling and the fun did not stop.

“One of the first scenes we shot was in the classroom where the brothers get, um, inebriated. It was just so great to see the three brothers together in that dynamic.”

So what was Britton’s favorite scene to shoot? “I did a sex scene with Adam Driver, who, of course, is the king of sex scenes. He wanted to make sure I was comfortable with it, and I’m like, ‘I’m fine, thank you.’ He is very sweet. It’s fun to talk about it now because it’s not in the movie anymore.”
