Listen up, ladies! Rachel Zoe says miniskirts are the must-have fashion item of the moment.
The celebrity stylist is a huge fan of shorter hemlines as she thinks they help flatter figures, but also has some advice for women who would prefer to cover up in jeans: “Mini is the length that’s happening right now. Shorter skirts elongate legs. But if you want most of your legs covered, add turn-ups to a boyfriend jean to expose a bit of the ankle. With a skinny jean, scrunch them up your calves.
Blazers are still big news this season, and Rachel recommends giving them a personal touch, saying, “The sleeves are the boxiest bit, so bunch them up to taper them. Pin a brooch in the back to tighten it up and give it a little bit of flavor.”
As for hair, Rachel - who has worked with a host of celebrities including Cameron Diaz and Demi Moore - advises not going too styled as a messy look gives a great contrast. She told Britain’s Glamour magazine, “Don’t dress like you’re in a beauty pageant - if you’re in a super glamorous gown, mess up your hair a little bit.”
Wizards of Waverly Place star Selena Gomez has become the latest celebrity to enter the “cheap clothes for juniors” world.
Beginning this July, fans of the 17-year-old’s style will be able to purchase items from the Dream Out Loud line at Kmart stores. The collection, which Gomez describes as the “whole Texan cowgirl meets the glam Boho chic of Hollywood,” will include belts, scarves, hats, socks, handbags and hosiery in addition to clothing. Footwear will become available come October.
“I am proud to be able to join forces with Kmart to release my own fashion collection!” Selena told People. “This has been a dream of mine for as long as I can remember and I feel privileged to be able to give the consumer great product at a great value.”
You can see more pieces from the collection after the jump.

Our favorite Spice Girl Victoria Beckham is set to relaunch her denim line, dVb (now simply Victoria Beckham Denim), for Spring/Summer ‘10 and we’ve got the lookbook here!
Expected to run about $235 for a pair (more affordable than her dress collection, I’ll say), the range includes an array of cigarette pants, boyfriend jeans, as well as jackets and denim skirts. Judging by the photos, Beckham again offers a simple yet sexy and timeless look—quite possibly Posh Spice meets The Row (minus the latter’s expensive prices)?
Check out the rest of the pictures after the break!
Christopher Kane’s Topshop line is finally here, and the folks at British retail chain offer us a peek with the collection’s lookbook.
Although the line isn’t due in stores until next month, much buzz has been circulating around the Versace designer’s 39 pieces. By the looks of the photos (seen after the jump), it is obvious as to why the hype has originated.
The collection, ranging from $60 for a scarf to $310 for a dress, unfortunately isn’t the cheapest. With dresses like these, however, I think that I can make quite the exception!
The line is expected to come complete with shoes and bags.

Apparently it does pay to live in the most fashionable city in the states.
Although Anna Sui’s Gossip Girl-esque line won’t be hitting Target’s site nor stores until September 13, New Yorkers have the opportunity to snatch up the pieces earlier.
One of the many events occurring under Fashion’s Night Out, Anna Sui and Target are opening a temporary shop on September 10 exclusively for the diffusion line.
Mark your calendars—the store will close on September 12!

A red-haired Coco Rocha (somewhat bearing a resemblance to Rose McGowan) appears in Liz Claiborne’s fall campaign, gracing a very crowded neighborhood and grocery store. While Coco can do no wrong, I find this pairing a little strange…

The fashion phenomenon known as Rodarte will soon be adding its name to the long list of houses that have created a diffusion line for Target.
Headed by the fabulous Mulleavy sisters, the couture-meets-edgy designs usually range in the thousands (per piece)—quite a far cry from the expected $9.99-$79.99 going for the Target line.
Target spokesman Joshua Thomas has assured potential buyers that they are not to be disappointed:
“What you’ll notice is an amazing eye for detail. It’s very feminine, yet very modern. The collection incorporates a rich mix of patterns and fabrications and everything from sequins and bows to faux fur. The key with Rodarte is layering… There are stand-alone pieces and pieces that can be worn together to create an ensemble by layering different patterns, textures and prints.”
A favorite of celebrities Keira Knightley and Natalie Portman, the diffusion line is due to hit stores December 20th and be available until February 6th, with a total of 55 pieces.

It appears as if Jennifer Connelly has returned to her modeling roots, having been deemed worthy of the coveted Balenciaga ads; however, no one’s too impressed by her awkward pose for this fall’s collection.
While it very much could have been photographer Steven Meisel’s fault, don’t forget that Connelly had a very awkward gaze in the house’s Spring/Summer ‘08 campaign…
While I doubt most people have been keeping up with Avril Lavigne or really given a second thought about her clothing choices, the Canadian pop star is forging ahead with her “fashion” career.
One year after launching Abbey Dawn, an apparel line for juniors, in Kohl’s department stores, the “Girlfriend” singer is close to introducing a collection for an even younger set. The selections, which will be available in about two weeks, will include layered tees, leggings and kid-friendly skulls.
Fashion design isn’t the only thing Lavigne is experimenting with these days. Black Star, a new fragrance she helped create, is due out sometime this summer.

It seems as if Chanel is suffering the same fate Louis Vuitton is experiencing with their Madonna ads. Two images (check out the second after the jump) of the famed fashion house’s Fall 2009 campaign were recently leaked on the web.
Heidi Mount and Freja Beha Erichsen star in the campaign, which was conveniently shot by Karl Lagerfeld at his Vermont estate (this is not the first time he has used this location).
A sexy, more fashionable version of Little House on the Prairie comes to mind. What do you think?
