Saks Fifth Avenue, synonymous with New York City chic. Saks Fifth Avenue was the brainchild of Horace Saks and Bernard Gimbel, who operated independent retail stores on New York's 34th Street at Herald Square in the early 1900s. Their dream was to construct a unique specialty store that would become synonymous with fashionable, gracious living. 100 years later, I think it's clear they achieved their dream With so many thousands of products where do you begin?

It's been a long time coming, but Tamara Mellon's first designs for her eponymous clothing and accessories collection have finally been revealed.
The line, which will introduce new products about every other month, includes some well-made staple pieces like a cashmere turtleneck and a chic white blouse. But it also includes some more-luxurious efforts, like a leopard-print calf-skin trench coat and a red coyote-fur jacket.
"They don't want to look at shows and then have products in the stores six months later." For a look at what Mellon has coming out starting in January, click through the gallery.
This week's best dressed list is spilling over with Stella McCartney, Givenchy and Lanvin — and features local and international fashion stars both on the red carpet and styling it up on the streets. Miranda Kerr delivered the quirkiest accessories while out and about in New York with her son, while Sandra Bullock dispelled all myths that black was boring in a lace Stella McCartney mini.

Wardrobe fatigue can be crippling — particularly on Monday mornings when the styles you loved last week are starting to feel just a little too ho-hum. One minute, your tried-and-tested outfits are clocking up serious dollars-per-wear value, and the next it's all feeling just a bit lack-lustre. We get it. So instead of looking wistfully into your wardrobe, silently (or not so silently) waiting for something to jump out at you, consider these kitschy-cool pieces, speckled with star prints.
Some days, you just need to add a little bit of interest (we've got star-shaped studs for that), others you're in dire need of a statement piece (we'll introduce you to the perfect Spring mini skirt in a sec). Givenchy, Jimmy Choo and Comme des Garçons are all doing it, so why not go celestial-chic for Spring? It'll be fun, we promise.
Olivia Wilde has been hot on our radar this week, pulling out Theyskens' Theory, Christian Louboutin and even three outfit changes in one day to satisfy the closet stalker in all of us. She's been busy on the promo trail for her new film, Drinking Buddies, dressing the part in a number of red-carpet ready ensembles and a couple of very cool ways to style a simple t-shirt.
She hit Good Morning America in a printed pencil skirt, black t-shirt, and bright strappy heels for a cool effect. Up next, Olivia headed to the Late Show With David Letterman with a totally different look: an ethereal white fit-and-flare Theyskens’ Theory frock and nude Christian Louboutin heels. But that's just the start of it, head on through to see Olivia Wilde's very stylish week.
You've got the dress, booked the reception and deliberated over the guest list — but what about your shoes? Choosing the final touches to your wedding look can be just as stressful as the big decisions, and wearing the right shoes is a surprisingly important task. For one, there's the choice of colour. Gone are the days of having to wear satin-coloured heels to match your dress, with a selection of neutrals, metallics and even pops of blue on offer for every style of bride. Here are some tips on how to select the perfect wedding shoe, as well as our picks of the top 20 styles on offer to suit every style and budget. Here comes the bride!
- Colour-test: You'd be surprised at how many different shades of white there are, and cream tones can actually clash rather than match, so always bring a swatch of fabric or a picture of your dress with you when choosing your shoes.
- Length is everything: Depending on your dress-length, some style of shoes can look awkward peeking under a gown. If you've gone the traditional route, avoid wide peep-toe styles as all you'll see is toes underneath!
- Be careful of embellishments: Gowns made from tulle, silk or lace can easily snag, so it's important to ensure your shoe details won't catch on the hem. As a general rule, if you've got delicate fabric, avoid heavily embellished styles.
- Heel height: Wearing new heels all day and night isn't comfortable for anyone, so make sure you choose a flattering yet sensible heel height for your big day. As a precaution, ballet flats can be a lifesaver on the dance floor so be sure to have a pair on hand, just in case.
- Extra padding: If you're worried about blisters, stock up on cushioning and band-aids to keep your shoes from rubbing. Party Feet are a bridal bag must-have!

Alfred Hitchcock's heroines have inspired countless collections and campaigns, and Jimmy Choo's Fall 2013 ads — in which Nicole Kidman plays a stunning femme fatale — is no exception. The campaign, which joined a spate of Fall 2013 advertising images on Monday, was shot by Mikael Jansson. For both the video and still shots, Jansson asked Kidman to portray a strong, seductive, and solitary figure who viewers catch in a series of private moments. Whether stepping out of her car or simply reclining on a couch at home, Kidman's character is arresting — and so is the array of shoes and accessories she wears throughout the campaign. "I really enjoyed being able to play a role that was strong, sexy, and in control," Kidman said. "I got into a relationship with the photographer, and Mikael is very intuitive; he knows what I am thinking and feeling and is able to translate it through the camera." A look at all of the shots from the campaign, here.
