Rounding out this season’s slew of festival fashion is Lollapalooza, Chicago’s annual music festival. This year, featured among the hippies, rockers and hipsters, fans will be treated to an epic lineup that includes Soundgarden, Green Day, Lady Gaga, Arcade Fire, The Strokes, Phoenix and more. If it’s the festival’s fashion that you crave, prepare for plenty of denim cut-offs, feathers, tribal-inspired face makeup and more (as seen on Ke$ha at last year’s Lolla.)
The Rachel Zoe Project, Season 3
Rachel Zoe, her team, the fashion and the drama return to our screens this evening with the premiere of The Rachel Zoe Project’s third season. Taylor has been let go, Brad has been promoted and fashion chaos will no doubt ensure. Turn to Bravo tonight at 10/9c for the season premiere—or, if you can’t wait, watch these two exclusive sneak peeks here and here.
Agyness Deyn and her best friend, Fiona Byrne, recently launched Naag.com, a lifestyle web magazine with articles on fashion, beauty, travel and culture. “It’s places that we go, things that we buy, products that we use,” says Byrne. Or, as Deyn says: “It’s just going to be stuff that we think is rad.” Just think of it as part-Jane, part-travel guide and part-expose on the life of two very cool girls.

Quartz crystals are wrapped in silver serpents and dangled from a long chain, bird skulls are doused in gold or silver and worn as rings, while black Heishi beads are wrapped around the wrist.

Thanks to brands like Burberry, fall is set to be super-cozy and ultra-stylish; shearling jackets are one of this year’s biggest trends.
