Isabel Lucas Tops Off Prabal Gurung with Offbeat Footwear

For the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and InStyle’s celebration of the 2015 Golden Globe awards season in West Hollywood last week, Isabel Lucas chose to team a navy-jacquard Prabal Gurung dress with some confusing footwear.

The winning dress was pulled from the label’s Resort 2015 collection, featuring a layered crop bodice and cutesy ruffled hemline. The Australian actress amped up her usual boho-luxe flair with a taste of vintage appeal via a long pendant necklace and black-weaved belt.

It wouldn’t be an outfit of Isabel’s without something a little unusual, here brought to fruition by pairing socks and heels. The frilled socks are cute and quirky just like the celeb herself, but the shoe-choice, especially the open-toe cut of the boot, wasn’t a hit with us.

Beyoncé Reminds the World She’s the Queen with a New Video

Sorry Kim, Beyoncé is the ruling queen. In case you’ve been away from the Internet, Bey just dropped a new video for 7/11 that’s at once low-key and 100 percent major. Dancing in her hotel room with her backup dancers, she makes a night hanging with her girls look so damn cool. We’ll just wait for everyone to drop their own versions in 3…2…1…

C.Wonder Is Closing a Bunch of Its Stores

C.Wonder fans better hightail it to the nearest location because the retailer is about to close a lot of its stores. The house Christopher Burch built in 2011 is about to go from retail to wholesale, according to BuzzFeed. The store was said to be a revenge project after his divorce with billionaire fashion mogul Tory Burch. 

Over the years, critics of C.Wonder couldn’t help but see the similarities between Christopher’s brand and Tory’s, and they’re right: that blue blood, East Coast prep aesthetic is something both labels gravitate towards. Apparently, Burch was so keen on showing up his ex-wife that he expanded his label too rapidly. Several shady and unwise business moves have ultimately hurt the brand. BuzzFeed points to a Flatiron location in New York City that Burch was rumored to have bought because Tory’s favorite hair salon is in the same building. 

C.Wonder expects to shutter 20 of its 32 stores by January 1 and transition into a wholesale business in hopes that it can make the leap into department stores. The brand has less than $75 million in sales annually, meanwhile Tory Burch’s brand is sitting pretty raking in over a billion dollars last year. 

Somewhere in the world, Tory is smugly sipping champagne and counting her cash, completely unbothered.
