    The Council of Fashion Designers of America is not a governing entity for the fashion industry. But to say the trade organization has sway over the thousands of designers, buyers, publicists and staff members who create and disseminate fashion in the United States would be a gross understatement. “Technically they really can’t tell anyone what to do, that is not what they are,” Bethann Hardison, this year’s recipient of the founder’s award in honor of Eleanor Lambert, says of CFDA. “But they have a natural influence.”

    Fashion rules are made to be broken, Rihanna told a glittering crowd of fashion industry leaders on Monday, and her outfit dramatically conveyed that message: a sheer fishnet gown, sparkling with thousands of embedded crystals, that left little underneath to the imagination.

  • Clothes Mentor opens in Algonquin and Batavia May 26, 2014 7:02 PM

  • Ferragamo launches signature Fiamma bag May 9, 2014 5:45 AM
    Perhaps the “It” bag’s star just burned too bright. Those must-have handbag wonders, which flew out of stores before dropping into sudden oblivion, have given way to something more enduring: signature bags. Ferragamo launched its own entry into the category this week with the Fiamma, named for founder Salvatore Ferragamo’s late daughter, who was the force behind Ferragamo’s first handbag collection in the 1970s.

  • Old-world glamour in black and white at Met gala May 6, 2014 9:14 AM
    Old-style glamour — especially in black and white — ruled the night air as stars of Hollywood and the fashion world converged on the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Monday evening for the annual Costume Institute gala, the biggest event on the New York fashion calendar.

  • Images: Kentucky Derby fashion May 3, 2014 5:42 PM
    For some the Kentucky Derby is all about the horses, for others it's all about the hats, lots and lots of hats. Even some of Hollywood's favorites got into the act.

  • Prom dress shopping can be perilous for plus-size girls Apr 16, 2014 5:30 AM
    Maria Giorno has nothing against long gowns with high waists and flowing fabric — dresses that are designed to camouflage curves on plus size women. But the New Jersey high school senior had no interest in buying a loosefitting style for her senior prom, even though it was all she could find in a size 16 or so at nearby stores. So many stores, Giorno said, “never have anything that’s a little more sexy or a little form-fitting, or anything like that for my age.” Shopping for a dream prom dress for plus-size teens can be a tear-inducing, hair-pulling morass of bad design and few options.

  • Deschanel talks fashion, Prince and ‘New Girl’ Apr 13, 2014 5:01 AM
    Zooey Deschanel is almost bubbling over with excitement: Her show “New Girl” is a hit, she just released a pop song with Prince, she’s working on a movie with Bill Murray and Bruce Willis, and now she’s sitting in a Tommy Hilfiger store filled with racks of dresses she helped design. It’s fitting, then, that bubbles are a theme of her new fashion collaboration with Hilfiger, To Tommy From Zooey.

  • Subscription sample boxes shake up beauty routines Apr 10, 2014 5:45 AM
    It’s a beauty product fan’s dream: a monthly box sent to the door filled with samples of lip glosses, face creams, hair treatments and nail polishes. The trend started a few years ago with companies like Birch Box charging between $10 and $15 a month for subscriptions. But it’s recently taken off with dozens of options.

    While preparing clients for trial, one of the biggest issues facing DuPage County Public Defender Jeff York is often his client's wardrobe. “I usually will ask my client, 'If you're going to church with your grandmother, what would you wear?'” he said.

  • Relax, Rachel Zoe is not judging your outfit Apr 4, 2014 2:41 AM
    If you happen to spot celebrity stylist and designer Rachel Zoe out and about, do not worry. She’s not judging you. The woman responsible for dressing the likes of Jennifer Lawrence, Sofia Vergara and Jennifer Garner swears when she’s “off the clock” so to speak, she’s not a fashion cop.
