First the Bad News:

We found out students in France are choosing to protest dress codes by wearing, ahem, trés sexy ensembles [The Cut]… Jessica Simpson’s chic factor is on the decline with this odd ear candling video [Stylelist]…And there are way too many ugly holiday sweaters in existence than we could have ever imagined [Huffington Post]…

Now time for the Good News:


Bridesmaid dresses are notoriously known for being less than in your favor in terms of a flattering frock. Oh, what we will do (and wear) for our friends! Luckily, Quail has just released a line of dresses that won’t just get shoved in the back of your closet after your pal’s big night [Refinery29].



To promote Mercedes-Benz latest ride, the SLS AMG, the car company has got fashion photographer Nick Knight to shoot Julia Stegner in a futuristic suit by designer Gareth Pugh.  The tough armor-inspired look is as sexy as the sports car, and makes the Batmobile look so last season. [WWD]

Get ready for New Years Eve with the perfect party dress and party shoes to ring in 2010.
