Reformation Collaborates With Patagonia [Fashionista]
Reformation's newest collaboration with Patagonia may sound a bit out of left field for the Los Angeles-based retailer, which specializes in crop tops and itty-bitty dresses, however the execution of the lightweight puffy jackets styled with liquid (faux) leather skinnies is very on-brand. Other pieces from the duo's new collab, now available on TheReformation.com for $35-$220, include fleece and down-filled jackets, leggings and a beanie. True to both brands' eco-friendly standards, the entire collection is sustainable, too.
Elle Picks Helen Mirren, Kristen Stewart, Lupita Nyong'o and More for Women in Hollywood Covers [Elle]
For its annual Women in Hollywood issue, Elle gave eight leading ladies their own covers, including Kathy Bates, Helen Mirren, Anna Kendrick, Lupita Nyong'o, Aja Naomi King, Anna Kendrick, Felicity Jones, Kristen Stewart and Amy Adams.The women opened up about their careers, their influences and, in Jones' case, the responsibility of taking on a Star Wars role and the rabid fan base that comes with it: "It's a privilege to do what we do. You can't suddenly go, 'I don't want any of this,' because you're in films that people respond to."
Ralph Lauren Might Just Be Hillary Clinton's Official Outfitter [New York Times]
Though most people watching Sunday's presidential debate were more focused on the fly on Hillary Clinton's face than the clothes on her back, it should be noted that the Democratic nominee for president chose to wear a Ralph Lauren pantsuit — again. Clinton also wore the American designer to the Democratic National Convention, where she accepted the party's nomination, and to the first presidential debate, when she stole the spotlight in bright red. She's also worn Ralph Lauren several times on the campaign trail. So, could the All-American, safe-bet designer, who is essentially Clinton's peer at age 76 (Clinton is 68), become her go-to should she secure the presidency? Time will tell.
