Zac Posen Loves Dallas Women

Fashion designers and celebrities all over the world are obsessed with Dallas women. (A fixation we whole-heartedly understand, of course.)

Hayden Panettiere is Just Like Us! Except for the Whole Celebrity Thing.

I recently interviewed Hayden Panettiere, who was in town to celebrate the opening of Belk at the Galleria. I was unsure of what to expect. How would she stack up against her current role as the occasional-diva country singer Juliette Barnes on Nashville? But from the moment she walked into the room, in a Trina Turk dress and stilettos, she was all smiles and jokes. The interview started off with an unexpected compliment—she spotted my florescent pink Cambridge Satchel Company bag and gushed about how she loves the hue. By the end of the interview, I felt like I was chatting with a good friend (with whom I share a love of Cards Against Humanity, Shel Silverstein, and Italy). Read on to get all the details on my newest girl crush (and soon, yours too).

Seven Minutes in Heaven: My Interview with Sarah Jessica Parker

It was a lazy Sunday afternoon my junior year of college when my friends and I had “the talk.” The one where we all likened each other to Sex and the City characters. Turns out, I’m a Charlotte-Samantha mix—very rare, I know.

I texted those friends last week to share some big news: I’d be meeting the one and only Sarah Jessica Parker on Sunday. They all swooned. “What are you going to ask her?” they all wondered. Obviously, there were many questions I wanted to ask, but I was there to learn more about the SJP Collection, Sarah Jessica’s Nordstrom-exclusive line of shoes, handbags, and one special trench coat. After spending no less than three hours trying on prospective outfits, I decided on a Rachel Comey dress from Nicole Kwon, and was ready to meet the style icon.

Local Designer Lela Rose Makes Football Helmet for NFL Auction

For those of us who aren’t NFL fans, the Super Bowl is basically a time to chow down and chill out while watching commercials and the half time show (all praise Queen Bey). But this year, you can add fashion to that list thanks to the Council of Fashion Designers of America and Bloomingdales. They’ve teamed up with the National Football League foundation for a one-of-a-kind line of customized football helmets designed by the likes of Danijo, Nicole Miller, Rag & Bone, Pamela Love, and Dallasite Lela Rose.
