Linda Rodin has had a diverse career in fashion—model, stylist, beauty entrepreneur. But she isn’t done yet. Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen have picked her as the newest face of The Row.

A self-proclaimed Italophile and a lover of simplicity, the effortlessly chic Linda Rodin has captivated an entire community of beauty lovers and fashion insiders with her skincare line and unique street style. She has been a fashion editor for Harper’s Bazaar, styled the likes of Madonna and Gisele Bündchen, and created a cult following with her body oils.

The former model began her skincare line, Rodin, about six years ago in an attempt to make something unique and personal that worked just for her. “I bought all the oils that I liked and just started mixing them together in a cup,” she told The Daily Beast. “It sounds ridiculous, but it’s true.  Then I started bringing them to photo shoots, and all of the make-up artists and models loved it.” 

Behind the Scenes

What 'Girls' Wear

Will we see more of Jessa's bohemian style and no pants for Hannah? Costume designer Jenn Rogien talks about how she dresses the characters of 'Girls.'

The Girls are back in town. Season 2 left characters in their most fashionable state—particularly Hannah, who was last seen in a faded T-shirt from the Salvation Army and a new haircut that Shoshanna describes in the Season 3 premiere as "hair like a little boy on a fancy cookie box." Despite their quandaries, the new season has the characters evolving in innumerable ways—and all in their most appropriate attire. Jessa dons her bohemian look as she attends—and gets kicked out of—rehab; Hannah, who's working on an e-book, dons casual printed frocks and blazers; Marni sports her typical "Ann Taylor"; and Shoshanna is a bit more chic (especially in her oversize Prada sunglasses) as she attempts to revamp her post-breakup life. Plus, with J. Crew's Jenna Lyons appearing in the trailer as Hannah's publishing boss (and Victoria Beckham reportedly vying for a cameo), this may just be Girls's most fashionable season yet. The Daily Beast talks with costume designer Jenn Rogien on dressing the most relatable girls on television.

Where do you pull inspiration from? Do you work closely with the actors and actresses? Do you stake out in Brooklyn and look at what people are wearing?

Lingerie isn’t just for women, anymore. Japanese fashion label, Wish Room, has found a hot market offering silky intimates for their male clientele.

Japanese label, Wish Room, is pushing a new line of menswear…and the boundaries of gender norms.  The women’s “intimates” company began supplying Rakuten, a major Japanese shopping site, with a line of … men-timates?

Ranging from floral bras and panties to silky nightgowns, the lacy lingerie is specifically designed for a man’s larger frame. Keeping the frills of the women’s line, it has become a hot seller for the website.

Miu Miu's New Stars

Elle Fanning

And a Tiffany & Co. documentary is in the works.

Miu Miu's Star-Studded Campaign: For its Spring/Summer 2014 campaign, Miu Miu has tapped some of Hollywood's biggest rising stars: Elle Fanning, Lupita Nyong'o, Elizabeth Olsen, and Bella Heathcote. The actresses, shot by fashion photography duo Inez & Vinoodh, "play on classic archetypes of fashion — through their individual style language." Fanning is seen in a playful, floral-printed, skater-style dress (already a red carpet favorite), with yellow wool stockings and red and pink heeled Mary Janes, while Nyong'o rocks a bedazzled bustier and choker necklace. This new slew of "It" girls follows in the footsteps of past Miu Miu faces including Hailee Steinfeld, Mia Wasikowska, and Lea Seydoux. [Miu Miu Press Release]

Riccardo Tisci Collaborates with Nike: Givenchy creative director Riccardo Tisci is collaborating with Nike on a partnership that will arrive in stores this Spring.

"When I got the call, it sounded so strong, so perfect for my DNA. It's a big honor for me, especially because they're always working with sports people." This is not the first time that Tisci has worked with Nike — in 2010, he assisted in curating a project between artist Marc Turlan and the sportswear company. [Style.com]

Thinspiration

The Bikini Bridge to Nowhere

The latest trend in thinspiration turned out to be nothing but an Internet-made hoax. So why do we let ourselves get sucked in by the hype?

#BikiniBridge is defined as when "bikini bottoms are suspended between the two hip bones, causing a space between the bikini and the lower abdomen.” In the past three days, the hashtag has been retweeted over 4,000 times. There’s even a Tumblr and countless Twitter accounts dedicated to the fad.

The latest “trend” in thinspiration, however, can also be defined as a major hoax.

Jennifer Lauren, the 41-year-old niece of Ralph, was spared jail time but slapped with a steep fine after a drunken tirade on a diverted Delta flight.

Jennifer Lauren, the 41-year-old niece of fashion designer Ralph Lauren, was so intoxicated when she was hauled off a flight from Barcelona to New York—which was forced to make an unscheduled stop in Ireland—that she reportedly asked the arresting policewoman: “Can you say that in English please?”

Ms. Lauren, a jewelry designer, was today fined €2,000 for the air rage rampage which saw her chase airline staff through the first-class area of the plane, and call an air hostess a “f**king ugly, blonde bitch” and a pilot an ‘asshole’.

The Evolution of The Single Woman

From Carrie Bradshaw to Liz Lemon, a look at how television's greatest heroines have blazed a trail for feminism.

Women have forever struggled to achieve the perfect work-life balance, where one can excel both romantically and professionally, without needing to compromise one or the other. We have also, for quite a long time now, based many of our desires — and yes, misconceptions — of "having it all" on our chosen television programming.

Refinery29's Lexi Nisita cites Murphy Brown (which first aired in 1988) and her predecessor, Mary Tyler Moore, as the earliest on-screen heroines who were "a clear representation of the most pressing concerns of femininists of [their day]." Brown was the epitome of the post-feminist idea of her time as an over 40 single mother with a powerful career.
