The Designer Collab We're Coveting for Fall

Designer Roland Mouret is known for dressing some of the most glamorous celebrities in Hollywood in curve-hugging, ultra-flattering outfits. So it's no surprise that his new collaboration with Banana Republic, launching August 7, features elegant, fitted and (suprisingly) work-appropriate finds --think sheath dresses and pencil skirts. The best part? Prices range from $49.50 to $140, meaning your fall wardrobe can get an update on a budget.   read more

Louboutin for Your Nails

Christian Louboutin, he of crimson-soled-shoe fame, announced that he is releasing an eponymous beauty collection. His first foray is a nail polish line. It makes sense, considering it was an assistant's red nail polish that inspired the red soles of his shoes in 1992. The first shade, Rouge, hits stores on August 6, with 30 remaining shades following on August 31. At $50 a pop, these nail polishes aren't cheap -- but considering the faceted crystal bottle is a work of art in itself, the polishes can double as vanity decor. After all, Louboutins weren't meant to be put in a drawer.   read more
