• Kourtney Kardashian Put the Most Literal Spin on the Naked-Dress Trend
    by Chandler Plante on January 26, 2023 at 11:10 pm

    Forget what you knew about naked dresses, because Kourtney Kardashian just upped the ante. In an Instagram gallery posted on Jan. 26, the Poosh founder took the revealing trend to new heights, showing off her nude-print gown. Styled by Dani Michelle, the high-neck Balmain look prominently featured a Renaissance-era nude painting of the female form running from collar to hem, mirroring the curves of Kardashian's own body. Kardashian posed to demonstrate the optical illusion before giving her followers a look at the back of her dress. From behind, the outfit faded into a sky blue, trading the singular naked body for a cluster of winged cherubs. "If you'd like to make a call please hang up and try again," Kardashian wrote in her caption. Balmain Creative Director Olivier Rousteing previously spoke to Vogue about the spring 2023 collection from which Kardashian's dress originated, emphasizing his focus on sustainability. "We all saw climate change this summer. We all saw fires around the world. And coming back with a show in September, thinking about whether our pants are going to be high-waisted or low-waisted - it seems a bit futile to me," he explained. Kardashian's "naked" dress, then, could be thought of as an escape, calling back to an era characterized by innovation, exploration, and pure artistry. As far as Kardashian's style goes, this is not a huge departure. In fact, just four days earlier, her husband, Travis Barker, shared a photo of her wearing a minidress in a similar style, only with different artwork and a slouchier silhouette. Could it be that Kardashian is in the midst of her own personal style renaissance? Check out her literal take on the naked dress to find out.

  • Maximalist Fashion Is TikTok's New Trend Obsession - Here's How to Shop the Aesthetic
    by Kyley Warren on January 26, 2023 at 10:20 pm

    Ever since watching the second season of "The White Lotus," I've noticed a subtle (actually, relatively loud) fashion trend bubbling up on both my TikTok and Instagram feeds: maximalist fashion. It's difficult to pinpoint the exact origins of this fad, but for now, I'm naming Jennifer Coolidge's character's comically Gen Z assistant, Portia, as the culprit for its latest resurgence. Love her or hate her, you can't deny that Portia on the hit HBO miniseries managed to generate quite a bit of buzz online for her eccentric style, embracing a level of fashion chaos that's not often seen - let alone celebrated - on TV. And while the internet has had seemingly no shortage of jokes about her heavily printed, mismatched ensembles and affinity for knit bucket hats, others appear to be trying to replicate it through the maximalism fashion trend. While style crazes of the last few years have leaned into a "less is more" approach, typically favoring all things minimalism, the maximalist fashion trend has managed to flip the script entirely with a "more is more" approach - think lots of bright colors, quirky sets, bold patterns, eye-catching silhouettes, and practically any outfit pairing that's sure to make a statement from the moment you walk into a room. The maximalism trend is all about finding freedom in style - it's fun, it's unpredictable, and frankly, it's everything that fashion oughta be. Plus, with the influence of TikTok, we've discovered it's also incredibly easy to replicate. With that in mind, I went ahead and scoured the internet for the best maximalist fashion pieces to add to your wardrobe this year. Given that it's been plastered all over my TikTok feed as of late, I have an inkling it's here to stay for the long haul. From fringe skirts and tiger-print coats to striped bucket hats and even a trippy tie-dye dress, consider this your official guide for how to shop the maximalist fashion trend this year.

    by Yerin Kim on January 26, 2023 at 10:05 pm

    View this post on Instagram A post shared by Jennifer Lopez (@jlo) No one loves a plunging moment like Jennifer Lopez. Ahead of the "Shotgun Wedding" premiere on Amazon Prime on Jan. 26, the triple threat shared glamorous throwback photos of herself on a set wearing a chic yet unconventional David Koma pantsuit and stacks of gold jewelry. Presumably styled by her go-to duo, Rob Zangardi and Mariel Haenn, Lopez dressed in a black short-sleeved blazer cinched at the waist with nothing underneath, paired with classic wide-leg trousers. Wearing sky-high PVC platforms, she amped up the all-black ensemble with hoop earrings, piles of bracelets, and layered necklaces, including one from FoundRae that fell past her deep V-neckline. Lopez finished the look with her signature blowout, courtesy of Chris Appleton, as well as natural makeup featuring her namesake brand, JLo Beauty. In the past month alone, the star has been spotted in several outfits featuring a plunging silhouette. For a "Jimmy Kimmel Live" appearance on Jan. 18, she wore a romantic Giambattista Valli dress accented with crisscross straps on the neckline. She also wore a revealing lace bralette from Intimissimi in a recent photo shoot for the brand, as well as a vintage Gucci gown with a low-cut neckline to celebrate New Year's Eve. As indicated by her most recent red carpet appearance, Lopez is also a fan of the sheer look. At the "Shotgun Wedding" premiere on Jan. 18, she reinvented the naked dress in a nude Valentine Haute Couture gown covered in sequins, which she complemented with crystal pumps, also by the designer.

  • Nicole Scherzinger Steps Out in a Crystal Naked Dress For Dinner in LA
    by Chanel Vargas on January 26, 2023 at 9:10 pm

    Nicole Scherzinger doesn't need a red carpet to break out a showstopping ensemble. After celebrities displayed their designer style at Paris Fashion Week, Paris Haute Couture Week, and the Sundance Film Festival, Scherzinger dressed up for a more intimate occasion. On Jan. 25, the "Masked Singer" judge stepped out in a crystal-embellished naked dress for dinner in Los Angeles. Scherzinger arrived outside Craig's restaurant in the Jacqueline dress ($2,616) from luxury bridal brand Albina Dyla's 2022 Puissance collection. The outfit featured a square neckline and lace-up corset detailing along the back. It was covered in thousands of crystals and miniature stones that spilled into a dazzling fringe skirt. The singer, who was styled by Jessica Paster and Eveleigh, paired the look with nude fishnet tights, pointed-toe pumps in beige, and a white faux-fur stole. The dress's decadent themes appeared again in Scherzinger's chandelier drop earrings and numerous statement diamond rings. Her beauty team tied the whole look together with slicked-back waves, a burgundy lip, body glitter, and shimmering eyeshadow, reminiscent of the Old Hollywood aesthetic in films like "Babylon." It's unclear who Scherzinger had dinner with, but she has been publicly dating rugby player Thom Evans since 2020. While the couple have kept the details of their relationship private, they have been spotted on dinner dates in the past and even made the occasional red carpet appearance together. In an Instagram post shared on New Year's Day, Evans wrote, "Wishing everyone a happy, healthy and prosperous 2023." He accompanied the post with a black-and-white photo of himself and Scherzinger staring lovingly into each other's eyes. Ahead, take a closer look at Scherzinger's sparkling dress from all angles.
