London’s Royals Have Knocked New York Off Its Fashion Perch

London's Royals Have Knocked New York Off Its Fashion Perch

New York is easily the fashion capital of the US, and considering the size of the American consumer market, for many people that makes it one of the top fashion cities in the world. According to a list from Austin, TX based internet analysis company Global Language Monitor, that’s not quite enough to make it number one though. What is enough? How about a blue blood wedding, a newly minted princess with a mostly attainable wardrobe/style, and one design house with a genius founder and brilliant successor (who also played a role in said wedding). Come on down London, you’ve officially been crowned as the internet’s favorite fashion capital.

But is it?

Worldwide Pillow Fight in Pictures

Worldwide Pillow Fight in Pictures

If you weren’t using your pillow to sleep outside an Apple store last weekend, perhaps you were putting it to better use as part of International Pillow Fight Day. From Accra to Zurich, the feathers flew as people young and old battled it out in parks and gathering places around the world.

Started in 2008, the global opportunity to goof off is part of an “urban playground movement” that aims to get people out from in front of the television, and out into the streets having fun.

Alice in Wonderland’s Got Style

Alice in Wonderland's Got Style

Tim Burton’s new rendition of ‘Alice in Wonderland’ gave big name retailers a fun muse for this season’s windows.

The scenery from the movie (mostly taking place in foliage as Alice is shrunken by magical mushrooms in the forest) is the perfect backdrop to display all that spring has to offer. Whimsical and magical, they truly capture the fairy-tale essence of the out-of-this-world story.
