The Golden Spikes
Looking back at Givenchy’s Fall 2007 collection, our eyes are dancing wildly at all the large gold spikes. We’re feeling it’s time to bring them back. For all those DIY designers reading this, visit eBay to grab some gold spikes for yourself and start adorning your black jackets at home.

Animal Spirit: The Shark
In our series, Animal Spirit, we believe that spring is a good time to explore the shark energy. Those who wear shark pieces connect with the idea of being “masters at survival.” As elegant authorities in the ocean, they also possess incredibly razor-sharp focus to get what they want. To vibe with this goal-driven and determined spirit, keep some shark teeth lying around your home, or be bold and rock a shark T-shirt.

Of all the actresses and models last night attempting to stick to the Fashion theme at The Met Ball, we believe Rooney Mara straddles the line of punk and high fashion the best. To view her cross-pollination stripes, check out her W Magazine spread photographed by Jean-Baptiste Mondino in 2011. The girl can still rock a dark lipstick! Here’s Rooney wearing a Givenchy dress on Monday at The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in New York City.

Ready to Sundance
Every year in January, the Sundance Film Festival draws indie hopefuls and serious stars to the streets of Park City, Utah, where a standout film can make (or break) a career. It’s a week of see-and-be-seen, meeting-and-greeting, where it’s important you look your best, despite taking place in an otherwise sleepy ski town. Here, we have our dream Sundance outfit, complete with leather leggings to keep you toasty, moon boots and snow goggles if you feel inclined to hit the slopes, as well as some memorable accessories.

Love for Lanvin
Pre-Fall 2013 collections have just begun and one thing is clear: animal prints aren’t going anywhere. From Givenchy cowhide to Lanvin leopard, critters are the print du jour. Above, is a look from Lanvin — a veritable feeding frenzy of three different animal-inspired motifs, playing against one another while remaining oddly complementary. In addition to taking prints to the maximum this season, Lanvin was perfectly luxe with their play of textures, blending wools, furs, silks, and leathers into outfits to die for. To see the rest of the collection, click here.

Givenchy is taking it back to nomadic spirit. For the Fall 2012 Couture Collection, Designer Riccardo Tisci was specifically inspired by Southern Italy gypsies. Lots of beads, lots of fringe… all meticulously hand-made. Molto Bella! Curious to own some precious finds of your own? Check out some of these Vintage Givenchy Dresses in the eBay closet.

Funny Face is Restored
To all the Fashionistas who have never seen Funny Face, now is the chance to take advantage on the big screen. For a short time, New York’s Film Forum will be presenting the new DCP restoration of the classic film — bringing back the eye-popping Technicolor to it’s original vision. The film runs only from June 29 to July 5th.
For the newbies, the plot is just as relevant as it was in 1957. The story revolves around Quality Magazine (based on Vogue) and it’s Editor (based on Diana Vreeland) hunting for a new trend. Fred Astaire who plays a top photographer (based on Richard Avedon) thinks the bookshop clerk in the West Village (Audrey Hepburn) is just the right face for the part. Did we mention Audrey rocks a serious scarlet Givenchy dress in this flick?
