Wedding gown brand to offer extended size range

All brides deserve a gorgeous wedding dress to celebrate their special day — that’s why one wedding dress brand will now be offering an extended size range.

According to Glamour, Floravere‘s “Firsts Collection” will not only offer affordable bridal styles, they will do so by offering samples in a broader size range, specifically offering sample gowns in sizes 2, 6, 12, 18W, or 24W. What’s more is that Glamour reports that Floravere will not impose a surchage for ordering a larger size, a common practice at some bridal shops.

Beyond the extended size range, Glamour notes that there is something extra special about the brand’s “Firsts” collection: each dress “is named for a female pioneer—like Marie Curie, Judy Garland, and Amelia Earhart” while also making reference to the changes their collection will make on the bridal industry.

“I think we’re really the first to revolutionize and drive innovation in bridal,” Floravere cofounder and CEO Molly Kang explained to Glamour. “We’re truly the first to really offer luxury wedding dresses that you can try on across sizes, no matter where you live.”

In addition to being size-inclusive, Glamour says Floravere’s latest collection is also wallet-friendly, with gowns starting at just $850.

Relive the Met Gala with new makeup collection

Every day can feel like the Met Gala, thanks to a brand-new makeup collection by Pat McGrath.

According to PopSugar, the famed makeup artist “teamed up with NYC’s Metropolitan Museum of Art (which hosts the event) to launch a line of apparel and makeup inspired by the gala’s theme, ‘Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination.'”

The mini-collection includes three pieces, all of which infuse the Met Gala theme in ways both subtle and blatant. For example, the brand’s Lust gloss will now be available in “Aliengelic,” says PopSugar, a “hydrating topcoat that applies like a balm or treatment while giving your pout a three-dimensional shine.”

Also included in the line is a five-pan palette called “Mothership IV: Decadence,” which PopSugar says features colors such as rose gold and turquoise. Finally, the Met Gala-themed collection offers two T-shirt styles, reports PopSugar, the product of a collaboration with the museum that produced a long-sleeve look that showcases a 13th-century statue from the Met Collection and another that features a gold foil Cloisters-inspired crown.

Available both online and at the museum starting May 8, PopSugar says the collection’s gloss sells for $28, while the palette retails for $125 and the long-sleeve T-shirt goes for $82.

Gaga reportedly has a makeup line in the works

Mother Monster may be in the process of creating her first makeup line.

That’s according to Harper’s Bazaarwhich is reporting that Lady Gaga‘s company Ate My Heart Inc. had filed a trademark back in January for something named “Haus Beauty.” The trademark, says Harper’s Bazaar, covers “everything from cosmetics to perfumes, colognes, and even skincare.”

While Harper’s Bazaar says that even though all signs are pointing to a forthcoming beauty line, a filed trademark doesn’t guarantee a finished product — or line of products.  But if her recent Instagram posts hold any secrets, cosmetics are almost definitely coming; Harper’s Bazaar points out that the singer and actor has been sharing several selfies that have pink and red lipsticks as their central focus.

But only time will prove the validity of the speculation — and here’s hoping it’s true!

According to Real Simple, “leisurée” brand Lively has just unveiled their brand-new Havana swim series, which includes three swimsuit styles that are designed to be just as cute as they are comfortable. Real Simple says the new collection includes in its lineup a “color-block V-neck one-piece, a multi-hued bralette bikini set, and tropical print two-piece designed for bustier women (available in sizes 34D to 38DDD).”

Tiffany & Co. goes floral for fine jewelry

Fine jewelry just got a bit more flowery, thanks to some new designs by Tiffany & Co.

According to InStyle, Chief Artistic Officer Reed Krakoff unveiled his first fine and high jewelry collection for the brand called “Paper Flowers,” which — you guessed it — is “inspired by the idea of flower petals cut from paper.”

Done with an “organic shape and a very modern and graphic feel,” Krakoff told InStyle that the collection — which includes everything from pendants to rings — not only tries to make fine jewelry less stuffy, it also aims to offer a new take on Tiffany & Co.’s longstanding attraction to using nature for inspiration.

“We always strive for new interpretations, combining beauty with modernism, like in the Tiffany Paper Flowers collection,” Krakoff told InStyle. “We deconstruct the petals and rivet them together again with a pin. We’re beginning a new chapter of creativity, with a reverence for the past, but at the same time bringing excitement and surprise so that people consider us in a new way.”

Making its debut on May 1, pieces in the collection start at $2,500 and go all the way up to a lofty $75,000 — while another piece requires shoppers to call for pricing.

Cyrus creates stylish collection for Converse

If cool kicks are on your summer shopping list, look no further.

Singer Miley Cyrus’ new collaboration with Converse has finally arrived, according to PopSugar, and with it comes a lot of glitter, color and creativity. And for Cyrus, the design process was about giving her fans exactly what they’d expect of the colorful performer.

“I definitely had my fans in mind and in my heart when I was creating,” she said. “I put what they love about me and what I love about them into the design.”

Her designs range from pink-soled high-top Chuck Taylors to platforms with glittery laces, PopSugar says the star’s styles run the gamut — and even includes some clothing items, such as sweatshirts and track pants.

Perhaps the best part about her collection is that it’s totally inclusive: “No age, no gender, no sex — I wanted everyone to feel included,” she said of her designs.

Graham’s new swimwear campaign features paparazzi photos

Who needs a professional photoshoot when your paparazzi photos are this good? The answer for Ashley Graham was simple: she didn’t.

So when the model and author debuted her latest swimsuit collection for inclusive swimwear company Swimsuits for All, HuffPost says the collection’s campaign “features unedited and unretouched paparazzi photos of Graham wearing the new suits.”

Called the “Power of Paparazzi,” the campaign shows off an all-new nine-piece collection that, HuffPost reportsis inspired by the 1920s and its famous art-deco style, which makes its way into the collection via “leaf appliqué and gold stitching,” as evidenced by the Ritzy swimsuit and “braided details and gold beading” on the Whoopee bikini. All styles are available in sizes 4-22, according to HuffPost, and is priced between $102-$120.

While the styles are certainly different, Graham told HuffPost that the campaign was also a first for her.

“This campaign is different than any other I have worked on throughout my entire career,” she said. “I hope these images instill a fearless belief in everyone to be happy in their own skin and enjoy living in the moment, no matter who is watching.”

Amen to that!

Time to make some space in your makeup bag, because a brand-new lipgloss is here just in time to polish off your spring looks.

According to Fashionista, Pat McGrath Labs has just released a new line of 14 “blindingly shiny, intensely  moisturizing, beautifully pigmented” lip gloss shades. Called “Lust,” McGrath explained that the product was designed to be both easy and luxurious.

The gloss marks the first time McGrath has released pigmented glosses, says Fashionista, which include a range of colors from “creamy nudes to pigmented reds and pinks to holographics.”

As for how much these glosses cost, Fashionista reports that individual glosses “will retail for $28 a pop, and will also be sold in four-piece kits, separated into warm and cool tones ($95) and a comprehensive 14-piece set which includes every shade ($325).”
