A few looks from Rodarte's Fall 2014 collection.

The Force is strong with this one. "This one" meaning Rodarte's Fall 2014 collection (obviously). Yesterday, the Sisters Mulleavy sent their latest line down the runway, which featured a few VERY familiar faces—and we're not talking about the models. With the blessing of director George Lucas, his wife Mellody Hobson, and Disney (who recently acquired the rights to Lucas' Lucasfilm Limited production company) Rodarte presented a series of Star Wars-themed looks that were both very literal (i.e. gowns emblazoned with Yoda, Luke Skywalker, and C-3PO) and creatively interpretative.

Before the beloved character-print dresses closed out the show (sans noticeably absent leads like Princess Leia and Darth Vader), Rodarte duo Kate and Laura Mulleavy delivered a collection filled with what we believe were more-discreet references to the cult-classic trilogy—which, to the average ogler, might seem totally a bit random, but have been several years in the making, as George Lucas took a highly coveted front row seat at Rodarte's Winter 2012 show. We consulted our resident Star Wars fangirl, Lauren Reid, for some much-needed insight on the collection's less-obvious nods to the films.

Taylor Swift

"Short hair, don't care. (!!!)" - Taylor Swift

Last night, Taylor Swift got her hair cut, and judging from her Instagram, it was an EVENT. It seems like just yesterday Taylor was flipping her hair every which way during her dramatic Grammy performance. Now that image is nothing more than a distant memory because Swift is reinvigorating THE haircut of 2013: The Chop, also known as The Karlie. In the midst of her international Red Tour, T. Swizzle took a moment Tuesday evening to show off her new, chin-length 'do on Instagram. "London, I could never thank you enough. See you next time! PS: short hair, don't care. (!!!)," she captioned the photo (of a photo?), which also features one of her best friends (a pool that just keeps growing and growing), Ellie Goulding.

Looks from Peter Som's Fall 2014 show.

Last season, sound stylist Javier Peral gave us all the juicy deets on the vibes behind the soundtracks at New York Fashion Week. From Jason Wu to Monique Lhuillier to Carolina Herrera, we got the lowdown on the curated beats that fueled the catwalks, and the people, places, and things that influenced designers' new collections. This season, Peral has been gracious enough to grant us access (again) to Peter Som's soundtrack, which has quickly become one of the most heralded shows of the Fall 2014 collections. Wanna know all the songs that accompanied Som's fresh, blurry florals and expertly tailored pieces? (Your answer should be something along the lines of "duh.") Well, good. Because you can check out the full playlist and the ideas behind the looks after the jump!

There are a few things you can always expect from a Christian Siriano show: drama that's well-balanced with wearability, meticulous attention to construction, and highbrow inspiration. The Fall 2014 collection he debuted at New York Fashion Week is absolutely no exception, hitting each note with even more masterful precision than in previous seasons. We were lucky enough to catch up with Siriano backstage just before his show, where he revealed his muse and gave us a peek at his thought process when developing a collection.

Teen Wolf

Lydia on 'Teen Wolf.'

If you're still weeping/shaking/holding loved ones close after last night's Teen Wolf, join the club. Poor Stiles! Poor Sheriff Stilinski! Poor Scott, Allison, Lydia, and Isaac, who had to go to school after no sleep! Since I'm not entirely equipped to discuss supernatural beings, this post will focus on something I am capable of talking about: hair.

You may have noticed that Lydia was mysteriously absent in last week's episode—well, I think I know where she was was: watching hair tutorials on YouTube. Her hair game was SO on-point last night. Her first look was an ~updated~ ponytail, which looked straightforward from the front, but then, she turned around and—BAM—it's an entirely different story. The ponytail hangs to the side and is wrapped around itself. Sure, it's messy, but in a chic way. If my hair looked like that one day in my life, I'd be happy. And take a lot of pictures.

Kristen Stewart, Nicolas Ghesquiere

In the latest issue of Marie Claire, cover girl Kristen Stewart really lets her hipster flag fly. She reads some of her original poetry, lounges around in Vans and dog tags, casually talks about modernist literature...you know the drill by now. But then suddenly, somewhere between the sneakers and Steinbeck, she gets to talking about Nicolas Ghesquiere (creative director of Louis Vuitton, formerly of Balenciaga). As she tells the tale of her introduction to the designer and the world of high fashion in general, it reads more like a romance novel meet-cute than anything else. Check out what she had to say (along with some imagined romantic subtext on my end, identified in italics):

"I did a photo shoot with Bruce Weber when I was 14 for Interview magazine. I met Nicolas Ghesquiere."

Kristen pauses, flipping her auburn bed-head to the other side, switching her part—a nervous tick when interviewers come close to striking an emotional chord. She looks off into the distance, lost in the memory of that chance meeting with Nicolas. A delicate and knowing glimmer flashes in her green eyes, though it disappears just as quickly.

Drake

Drake debuted the jacket on 'Saturday Night Live.'

In January, Drake hosted Saturday Night Live for the first time. Remember? As the show began, he sauntered onstage with a big grin and proceeded to ace his first monologue. He was wearing charisma, confidence, and a fine lookin' letter jacket. You may have admired this quality jacket. The craftsmanship. The signature OVO crew details. The way it seemed to give him just a little bit more Drake Power.

Well, good news! You too can get your very own extra Drake Power, as long as you've got $458 to drop and maybe a ticket to Toronto. Drake teamed up with Roots Canada to launch his 2014 tour jackets, and they'll be available starting February 15 at a Toronto Roots location. So far this is the only information available—one might wonder if they'll be up for sale elsewhere? But considering his 2011 Roots jacket collaboration was a limited edition and sold out quiiiiiickly, this might be a campout situation.

New York Fashion

Angel Haze, Solange, and Holland Roden at New York Fashion Week.

Now that we're on Day Five of New York Fashion Week, we've grown familiar with who is in New York and attending shows. (Anna Kendrick is all over, to the point where I think she may have cloned herself.) Angel Haze, Solange, and Holland Roden attended shows yesterday (it was Solange and Holland's first appearance at this year's Fashion Week), so we have a feeling we'll see some new faces as the event draws to a close.

While Angel Haze walked in DKNY's show over the weekend, she sat front row at 3.1 Phillip Lim's show yesterday in a semi-metallic suit and matching light-purple hair. Solange attended the Milly show doing what she does best: wearing bold-colored clothes. It's not easy to pull off orange, bright blue, and pink, but obviously Solange managed. After her five-show front row streak at last year's Fashion Week, Holland Roden appeared at Alice + Olivia's show looking very schoolgirl-chic in a plaid skirt and bow-print sweater.

Rag & Bone

Runway fashion borrowing from hip-hop culture is hardly a new phenomenon. The trend took off back in fall of 1991 when Chanel’s Karl Lagerfeld divisively tried his hand at “the ‘nouveau’ rapper look,” piling gold chains on his models, while his peers Isaac Mizrahi and Charlotte Neuville took similar inspiration. Now it’s pretty much a commonplace for designers to look to the genre and even tap its key players to walk in their shows. Just this weekend, Angel Haze strutted down DKNY’s runway.

Last season at New York Fashion Week, Alexander Wang—who’s merged the two worlds throughout his career—referenced ‘90s rap when he sent out "Parental Advisory" sweatshirts to the beat of Pharoahe Monch’s 1999 single “Simon Says.” A moment that perhaps also stuck with Rag & Bone’s Marcus Wainwright and David Neville when they were planning their Fall ‘14 collection.

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
