Joan Rivers Invented the Red Carpet via Vulture

A great entertainer and a huge name in fashion passed away this week. Joan Rivers created the Red Carpet event we know today and coined the phrase "Who are you wearing?" Many stars and designers owe their careers to her cheers and jeers. She will be missed.

IKEA Photoshops Their Catalog via Design Taxi

I have spent many an afternoon daydreaming as I thumb through the pages of the newest IKEA catalog. Oh to have such an immaculate living room and a home office fit for a queen. Now I know it is all a lie and life is a sad place.

Chanel Sues A Woman Names Chanel via Styleite

Bear with me...Chanel is suing Chanel for using the name Chanel. Yup.

Rocky Horror Picture Show Meets MAC Cosmetics via InStyle

The midnight show giant has not gone mainstream with a line from one of the biggest cosmetic companies in the world. Finally I can do the Time Warp everyday all day - figuratively of course.

Athleta Models Blow Fashion Week Away via USA Today

Fashion Week starts this week, but some are saying this is the best show of the season. Athleta, aka the workout gear branch of Gap Inc., put on their first fashion show and it was about as active as their customers complete with flipping models and some serious choreography.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
