No one really knows whether the average consumer can be enticed to make gadgets part of their everyday attire.

The dress will be paired with Obama’s shoes designed by Jimmy Choo and will go on display beginning Tuesday.

    Five to talk about from Golden Globes red carpet Jan 13, 2014 12:00 AM
    Let the glam games begin! The Golden Globes marked the start of red carpet season for Hollywood and we’ve got five stars to talk about, though no hot trends surfaced Sunday night around those big dinner tables where the booze flowed and the party vibe was more casual than Oscar or Emmy or Grammy. “What I think you’re seeing is a lack of trends. People are really shooting for individuality,” mused Hal Rubenstein, editor at large for InStyle magazine. “There’s not one color that dominated, not one silhouette, one mood, one neckline.”

    McQueen shows dark, brooding menswear in London Jan 9, 2014 12:00 AM
    Subdued plaids, long double-breasted coats, and lashings of black and leather: Alexander McQueen’s latest menswear offering is as dark and brooding as the stormy London weather outside. The label’s catwalk Tuesday, shown in a darkened chapel as part of London’s menswear collection presentations, was all about black paired with silver or gold accents, sharp tailored suits, and minimal geometric shapes. Skinny trousers were layered with kilts and skirts, and an occasional pink and black plaid outfit provided a burst of color.

    A few brushstrokes on the round, swollen skintone canvas, and soon a colorful painting appears. As a precious memory of their pregnancy, mothers-to-be are lifting their shirts for artists to paint a cute picture on their bellies, as a blessing for safe delivery and the healthy growth of their baby. Artist Tomoka Tome, 26, is one such artist. Tome has painted the bellies of more than 300 pregnant women so far.

    For 3 young entrepreneurs, dreams of fashion success start at toes Jan 3, 2014 12:00 AM
    The sock guys have old-people names. Joshua Steinman. Jay Gaul IV. D. Turner Swicegood. They are actually 30, 30 and 26 years old, respectively — not quite old enough to be squeezed of vitality and adventure by a lifetime of civil servitude. Once upon a time, three young men in search of safe nonconformity might have started a band. Now three young men, especially three young men in Washington, might launch a start-up to make a statement about dress socks.

  • In “American Hustle,” Christian Bale, left, rocks an elaborate comb-over, complete with fuzzy, glue-on hairpiece. Amy Adams’ dress is vintage Halston.

    ‘American Hustle’ a portrait of swank ’70s fashion Dec 27, 2013 12:00 AM
    From Christian Bale’s burgundy velour blazer to Amy Adams’ plunging sequin halter dress, “American Hustle” is a cinematic romp through the over-the-top styles of the 1970s. Set in New York and New Jersey in 1978, the film tells the story of a pair of con artists (Bale and Adams) forced to work for a cocky FBI agent (Bradley Cooper) bent on bringing down powerbrokers and politicians. This decadent world of power, crime and big money comes to life through ostentatious fashions and outrageous hairdos.

But this isn’t the “pleather” of the 1980s — that cheap, plastic-looking material made popular by Michael Jackson during his “Thriller” days.

     
  • A women’s ThermoBall full zip jacket now comes in borealis blue. Bright is the new black when it comes to colors and styles for snow bunnies to look their best on the slopes.

    Ski fashion: Rainbow of color headed down slopes Dec 18, 2013 12:00 AM
    Bright is the new black when it comes to colors and styles for snow bunnies to look their best on the slopes. The move to color in winter-sport outerwear follows a trend seen in clothing for other active pursuits, such as running, rock climbing and cycling. Part of the color revolution is driven by safety since it’s easier to spot a bright color in dim winter light, and there’s a fashion factor, too, but there’s also a little flamboyance and fun at play, say experts. “On the ski slopes, there’s a chance to be a little wild and crazy,” said Nancy Taylor, Athleta’s senior director of design.

    Growing trend for 2014: Orchid as top color Dec 7, 2013 12:00 AM
    Orchid is growing on us: A version of the purple hue is Pantone Inc.’s color of the year for 2014. Officially known as Radiant Orchid, the tropical shade is a color-wheel contrast to green, said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, but it’s not the red that would have been a more obvious choice. “It’s a little different, it’s a little off the beaten path, and it’s not a primary color. It’s an invitation to innovation."
