Couple Up: January Jones and Ashton Kutcher

image

What are these two most remembered for? The fact that he told her she should probably stick to modeling. Oof. But, they were so young! Just look and their toothy smiles, their fresh faces, and their outfits. —erica

January Jones: A fancy little Ben-Amun bobby pin, a jacquard Kenzo dress, and a thin Demylee cardigan.

Ashton Kutcher: A rumpled Save Khaki oxford, a tweed blazer from Steven Alan, and some Yuvi man jewelry.

More duos past their expiration date over here…

Next Level: Mesh

image

Brace yourself for the punniness ahead: These four pieces will have you looking like one hot mesh. —erica

LEVEL I: Just a sliver of see-through makes these Rebecca Minkoff loafers look a whole love more interesting.

LEVEL II: It’s like the strapless dress that you never have to hoist up, c/o Elizabeth and James.

LEVEL III: Thanks to this Steven Alan purse, you’ll know if you have your phone without even opening your bag.

LEVEL IV: Not only do the sleeves on this Jonathan Simkhai jumpsuit look fly, but they also allow for some serious air circulation. 

All the “Next Level” you can eat handle!

Never had a hankering for a sleeveless trench (or, really, knew such a thing EXISTED) until spying this Steven Alan one. —erica

Couple Up: Ryan and Rachel

image

Are Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams getting back together?! THE INTERNET WANTS TO KNOW. But, in the meantime, here’s your chance to get a little R&R, via the couple’s most iconic look. (Yes, our survey says that the red carpet/pink hair scene at the SAG Awards in 2007 is even more memorable than this). —erica

Ryan Gosling: The perfect black tie from Rag & Bone, a Steven Alan tux jacket, and not-to-shiny patent lace-ups from Mr. Hare.

Rachel McAdams: A sparkly silver Edie Parker clutch, a halter trapeze dress by Ali Ro, and slick white Sophia Webster pumps.

Next Level: Dressy Jumpsuits

image

Is there a reason—a good one—that a jumpsuit can’t get a little serious, a tad grown-up? Don’t think so. These are four that mean it. —erica

LEVEL I: Steven Alan goes super-classic. You know, for a jumpsuit.

LEVEL II: Huh! This A.L.C. getup looks like separates without the trouble of putting an outfit together.

LEVEL III: Yah, yah, strapless. But put a blazer over this 10 Crosby guy—a tuxedo jacket, even?—and it’s ready for action.

LEVEL IV: Get a load of those pinstripes and pleats, via Band of Outsiders. This sucker is very Serious Business Lady in a Melanie Griffith way.

Fall down the “Next Level” rabbit hole.

Weather Vain: Des Moines, Iowa - 50 and Partly Cloudy

image

It’s a nice, crisp day in DSM. Here’s how to take advantage of the harvest-season weather. —erica

Clockwise from top left:

+ A Lover sweater that screams “FALL” as loudly as the chili at Gateway Market.

+ An Erin Considine necklace—elegant and polished like La Mie's pastries.

+ A slim Ben Minkoff cardholder, shoved into the deep pockets of your jacket.

+ N.D.C. boots, ready to explore the John and Mary Pappajohn Sculpture Park.

+ Corduroys! In dusty pink, c/o MiH.

+ This Steven Alan jacket: perfect for trolling the Downtown Farmers’ Market. Elk jerky, anyone?

Get lots more “Weather Vain!” Right here!

Weather Vain: Brentwood, California

image

Claire and I spent last week housed in Brentwood—and I’d be lying if I said it was easy to leave. An ideal outfit if we’d stayed four more days… —erica

+ Skinny straps that are right for the L.A. climate in a color that feels like October, from Steven Alan.

+ A Eugenia Kim hat to cover-up post-SoulCycle hair.

+ Getty Center views, meet this Orly Genger by Jaclyn Mayer cuff.

+ A white denim Rag & Bone jacket—as creamy as the scoops at Sweet Rose Creamery

+ The sort of earrings—from Dream Collective—that all the girls at Jenni Kayne would go nuts over.

+ These No.6 clogs = minimalist perfection. Kinda like the incomparable sushi at Sugarfish.

A “Weather Vain” front is moving in…

In Character: Loretta Castorini

image

In 1986, Cher rolled up to the Oscars wearing this—yah, not messing around. Which made it even more impressive when she pulled on some boyfriend knits (and some really big hair) for her role in Moonstruck that won her a little gold man of her own just two years later. —erica

image

An Organic by John Patrick sweater that’s almost as large as the moon that blew everyone’s mind.

image

Tabitha Simmons velvet shoes ready for a makeover situation and a night at the opera.

image

Steven Alan PJ top that could have belonged to either of the Cammareri brothers.

Look at all of this “In Character” madness.
