Couple Up: Miley Cyrus and Nick Jonas

image

How psyched was Disney about these two holding hands, do you think? But when they broke up—well, Miley says that’s what sparked her teenage rebellion (which led straight into her early 20s rebellion, obvs). Get into their adolescent power couple look below—and here, too. —erica

Miley Cyrus: A beaded Shashi bracelet, a striped tee from NSF, and washed-out Siwy cut-offs.

Nick Jonas: A blue Brooklyn Tailors suit, a Stock Manufacturing Co. oxford, and a tie by John Varvatos.

Get all the “Couple Up” you can handle.

Couple Up: Carson Daly and Tara Reid

image

Does anything take you back to the year 2000 faster than hearing the names Tara Reid and Carson Daly? Basically as iconic (and now, in retrospect, as hilarious) as Y2K. Here’s what all that looked like. —erica

Carson Daly: A silver Miansai ring or five, an almost-brown Brooklyn Tailors blazer, and a crisp Seize sur Vingt shirt.

Tara Reid: Glittery pumps from B Brian Atwood, suspendered Brunello Cucinelli pants, and a black Iro bandeau.

More couples who are no more here.

Couple Up: Tom Green and Drew Barrymore

image

These two were supposed to get married on Saturday Night Live—mmmhmm, really. Apparently, Drew got cold feet, married Tom anyway in July 2001, and then filed for divorce 163 days later. It was all very confusing, even for those of us not intimately involved. —erica

Tom Green: A classic Neil Barrett bow tie, a Brooklyn Tailors tux, and Duncan Quinn lace-ups.

Drew Barrymore: A shiny Lauren Merkin clutch, a green-and-blue Anna Sui kimono, and teardrop earrings from Alexis Bittar.

If you’re looking for more duos you nearly forgot existed, we have a whole bunch.

Marriage Material: See Just How Erica’s Wedding Went Down

Major 2013 milestones? A big one for me was getting married to the straight-up wonderful dude who would probably rather not be pictured here. It was a low-key affair—is it weird to use the word affair when talking about weddings?—at Manhattan’s City Hall (technically the City Clerk’s Office, but you know) with just our fams…and some goodness from a few up-and-coming designers, obvi. Here’s how we made it official. —erica

image

The amazing Kaelen made my dress! It’s WHITE LEATHER. (Thought that warranted use of the caps lock key.) It’s the same cut as this one from her fall 2013 collection, and it fits like a GD glove. (The shoes are coming later—don’t worry.)

image

Custom suit, what, what. The savvy crew at Brooklyn Tailors whipped this sucker up for Thomas—it’s charcoal and super-timeless and has bells and whistles like hand pick-stitching that suit freaks die over. That *adorable* polka-dot bow tie? His grandfather’s.

image

Our rings were masterminded by the lovely Blanca Monros Gomez.They’re rose gold, a metal that—as the designer taught me back when—looks good with pretty much any skin tone. My engagement ring has black diamonds (cause I like ‘em), and my wedding band has sapphires (cause they’re Thomas’s birthstone). 

image

Ok, so the accessories: I wore a Lulu Frost bracelet (something borrowed!) that felt appropriately retro-cool for the venue and Alexandre Birman shoes (something very blue!) along with Thomas’s great-grandmother’s wedding ring and earrings that were my grandma’s (somethings old). And I carried a blush Clare Vivier fold-over clutch that’s been my go-to for weddings, mine or not—so, something new-ish?

image

After we got our paws on that marriage certificate (and had our pictures taken by our Ann Street Studio pals), we walked over to the awesome, festive Blaue Gans for lunch—Claire sent flowers by Taylor Patterson of Fox Fodder Farm for the tables!—and then booked ourselves a sweet room at the Bowery Hotel for the night.

image

Next up: a big ol’ party at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago to celebrate. The unreasonably talented Lisa Hedge of Venamour made our invites. I sweat them so much that I wanna get one framed.

Looking for more wedding madness? Ok, then.

This guy puts the power in power plant. See what the richest man in Springfield wears to exude an “I’m in charge of everything” vibe. —erica

A Brooklyn Tailors suit—green like money.

A Bonobos tie that is, in a word, EXCELLENT.

In Character: Nolan Ross

Of all of the questions that Revenge raises, the one that nags me the most is why none of the people desperately searching for Carrion have looked for it under Nolan Ross’s three collars. Seems like a decent hiding spot to me. When he’s not trying to protect Nolcorp from Grayson Global and The Initiative, everyone’s favorite tech wunderkind is showing Montauk what personal style is all about. Here, an outfit that transitions seamlessly from the board room to the Stowaway. —claire

In Character: Alex P. Keaton

With election season upon us, it feels right to pay tribute to one of the most prominent political figures of our childhood, the Reagan-and-Friedman-loving star of Family Ties. Shocker of all shockers: Conservative dressing hasn’t changed so much in 30 years. —erica

A hyper-classic navy Brooklyn Tailor suit—looks so stellar with the WSJ.

This Duncan Quinn shirt—because stripes are so much more interesting than solid blue. Even Mallory would agree.

A Shipley & Halmos tie that keeps the GFs engaged during long conversations about supply-side economics.

Ready for more “In Character?” Cause it’s ready for you.

The Insider: Elliot Aronow

                                

Elliot Aronow would like you to know that he is not new to the rodeo. He just learned that phrase this week. “Bossypants Mutherf*ckin’ Aronow” runs a company called RCRD LBL, which is like iTunes if it were free and released a heavily curated selection of songs that are guaranteed to be good. He has an internet TV show called OUR SHOW with Elliot Aronow that features guests like James Murphy, Das Racist, and TV On The Radio, and he writes a cooking column called Food Gold. He always holds the door, and he breezed through his Bar Miztvah. Mr. Aronow is pretty much the insider’s insider. This interview is just the tip of the iceberg. —nathalie

Q: What are you working on these days?

A: I’ve been teaching myself art history. I decided if I was going to work in the music business exclusively I was going to shoot myself in the face. Richard Prince has been a revelation to me.

Q: What’s the best new song you’ve heard recently?

A: The new Chairlift single. I would totally make out to that song.

Q: Do you have a favorite make-out record?

A: Fleetwood Mac, Tango In the Night.

Q: Where did you get the shoes that you’re wearing?

A: Opening Ceremony, circa two years ago. For shoes, I wear Rachel Comey and Opening Ceremony almost exclusively.

Q: What’s your favorite piece of clothing?

A: The first bespoke suit I ever got, which is a tan corduroy one that I still wear the shit out of. It’s from Brooklyn Tailors. Having a tailor is like having a wife: You may have a couple in your life, but you can only have one at a time.

Q: What do you think is worth spending money on?

A: Olive oil, men’s shoes, a mattress, and a cast iron skillet. Maybe—if you’re fancy—a good analogue preamp for your stereo.

Q: Did you have a Bar Mitzvah?

A: It was fucking sick. How about a comic-book theme? How about your mom transliterates your entire Torah portion because you can’t read Hebrew? How about your yeshivaed-out relatives thinking you’re going to be a beautiful Torah scholar? I wore a turquoise suit. It brought out my eyes.

Q: Was there a DJ?

A: There was. He was so hungover. He showed up looking like a truck. My mom—Vivian was not pleased.

Q: What was the first expensive, designer-y thing you bought?

A: A pair of Hedi Slimane Dior jeans in 2006. I still have the price tag: $345.00. They were ill.

Q: What’s your biggest goal in life?

A: All I want to do is grow up and be a handsome, successful, Jewish gentleman.
