Fashion Flashback: Remembering Vivienne Westwood’s Legacy on the Red Carpet & Screen!


British fashion legend Vivienne Westwood passed away today at the age of 81. Her career began in the 1970s, proving relevant every decade with its blatantly refreshing combination of punk meets glam. Westwood’s signature corseted design with a deconstructed sweetheart neckline has drawn the attention of celebrity A-listers for good reason, especially as many stars have returned to the label time & time again, including Euphoria’s Zendaya, singer Gwen Stefani, Oscar-winner Jessica Chastain, The Crown’s Helena Bonham-Carter, Wednesday actress Gwendoline Christie, the always stylish Kate Beckinsale, Disenchanted star Amy Adams, The Great lead Elle Fanning, pop singer Katy Perry, Westworld actress Thandiwe Newton, & of course, Sarah Jessica Parker’s iconic Carrie Bradshaw in her gown from the Sex & the City film, which reappears in the upcoming second season of And Just Like That.

Take a look through the images below as we honor Westwood’s creative contributions to fashion & the inspiration she imbues on Style Darlings everywhere.

Cover Craze: Kim Kardashian Goes Blonde on Allure’s August 2022 Issue!


Even if you’re not a fan of the Kardashian-Jenner empire, you can’t deny the impact that the 5 sisters (Kourtney, Kim, Khloe, Kendall, & Kylie) have had on social media, fashion, beauty, & pop culture. Most recently, Kim Kardashian is the star of Allure‘s August 2022 cover, where she speaks with writer Danielle Pergament, getting real about her career & family goals, the public’s perception of her, beauty standards, & her commitment to her beauty regimen with her recently launched nine-step skincare line SKKN by Kim. Along with the article, the images are photographed by Danielle Levitt, featuring Kim decked out in long blonde hair & styled by Kyle Luu with pieces from Skims, Alaia, Bulgari, Paris Texas, Schiaparelli Haute Couture, & Jimmy Choo.

Kim states, “There are so many different beauty standards — whether it’s Gwen Stefani, Jennifer Lopez, Marilyn Monroe. When I was a teenager, [the look] was just blonde waifs…My mentality was…always: Be yourself, find beauty in everything.”

On the media’s perception of her success & intelligence, Kim shares, “I think I’ve always just been the underdog…Being on a reality show and that’s not respected…Feeling like I need to work harder to show you guys that I’m not the person you think.” The aspiring lawyer also adds, “It would be amazing to retire being Kim K and just be a lawyer. But if it all went away, I would be just as happy…“I would want people to walk away and be like, ‘She was a good person, and she did some good things.’”

Check out the video below from Allure, where Kim answers questions about beauty:
