Casual Little Weddings

image

Kim and Kris. 72-hour marriage. 20.5 carat ring. And then just a few millions on the ceremony and stuff.

image

They got hitched in southern Italy and he sang to her while she looked pretty in pink wearing Giambatista Valli. I could think of a worse set-up.

image

Michael Jordan and Yvette Prieto… I mean, her dress was decked out in Swarovski, they met at a nightclub in Miami, and they had Usher and Robin Thicke perform at the wedding. I think I can follow that lead.

image

That cake… Leftovers for years. Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise got married in a medieval castle in Italy. I think that sums it up.

That time the world tuned in and glued themselves to the TV to check out Kate’s dress. And it was worth it.

Trippy Photo Apps and the Users That Are Killing It On Them

1. Glitché 

There’s a few glitch apps out there right now, but Glitché offers the most control and versatility, giving you the option to work with specific filters like Invert, which creates a negative of an area that you designate, and Grid, which turns the colors of the image into a 3D grid pattern that you can move. You can also turn images into GIFs to show your changes to the image in real time.

Office Revamp

Nobody wants to be enveloped by a dull cubical. Every. Single. Day. until the end of time. Here’s a little inspiration to spice up your workspace. Moodboards, cool pictures, motivating quotes, and little details can go a long way. Don’t underestimate the power of a bold flower bouquet—it’s an instant mood booster. Brb, I’m about to order a life-size Kate Moss poster to stare at until…until I start to internalize it as a mirror image of myself, or maybe cut down my cookie overdose or something.

Winona Ryder and Michael Pitt Star in Rag & Bone FW14 Campaign

For their Fall/Winter 2014 campaign, Rag & Bone has enlisted Michael Pitt, and Winona Ryder— who isn’t quite a stranger to fashion editorial campaigns, but hasn’t appeared in one since 2003. Managing partner for the brand, Marcus Wainwright said of Winona, “To us, Winona Ryder is a bona-fide icon. One of the things that makes her so cool is that although she has this incredible career, she isn’t interested in being a movie star,” adding that their selection was based on her “beauty and timeless quality.” All images via Rag & Bone’s Tumblr.

Not Your Typical Blazer

Workwear it what it is: You follow a basic dress code so HR can stay happy, and that’s that. But who says it has to be bland? When a blazer is a weekday staple, you might as well make it interesting.

Check out some not-so-typical toppers for your 9-5. There’s no reason to consider pinstripes a way to “jazz up” your office outfits. Seriously. Mix it up.

We don’t need to reiterate the sentiment that we lost a hugely important and irreplaceable actor yesterday. He was bold, relentless and versatile, and gave the kinds of performances that never age.
