We've created five of our favorite looks using a simple LBD - a draped stretch jersey mini dress.

Love was certainly in the air last night as guests gathered at Forevermark Diamonds' #HoldMyHandForever event in NYC. The user-generated project explored the meaning of "holding hands" across a spectrum of platforms and associations, from art and photography to social media. No matter what the reference, though, holding hands is a symbolic gesture solidifying a relationship, and when it comes to that, diamonds always help. Glowing mom-to-be Coco Rocha was on hand with hubby James Conran, as were lovebirds Keven and Danielle Jonas. While couples were cozying up, we of course couldn't wait to try on the goods, stacking on the bling for a GIF-making photo booth. Sure, security had their eye on us, but having a cool mil on our digits felt great even just for a moment. For more from the glam event, click through our slideshow!

The short answer: yes. Opening Ceremony's Humberto Leon has had quite the week—and it's only Tuesday! After attending the Louisiana nuptials of Solange Knowles this weekend, and getting rave reviews for the wedding gown he designed for the bride, the visionary was already back in New York to join Carol Lim as Opening Ceremony unveiled their contribution to wearable tech. And let's just say MICA, a.k.a My Intelligent Communication Accessory, is killing the game. Partnering with the digital masters at Intel, OC has created the most lusted-for smart accessory since—what was it?—oh, right, the little ol' Apple Watch.
While Thanksgiving has traditionally been an occasion to visit and break bread with family we haven't seen in a while, it seems more and more of us urban-dwelling 20-somethings are forgoing the typical Turkey Day travels in favor of a long weekend here with our friends. Listen Mom and Dad, we'd rather take that cross-country round-trip flight just once this holiday season, especially for an occasion where there might be presents. Anyway, if you're sticking to the city this Thanksgiving, invite over your fellow strandees and have yourselves a big ol' Friendsgiving, potluck style. Just picture it now: no creepy uncles, plenty of booze, AND you get to play Cards Against Humanity. Click through for our ultimate guide to hosting the perfect Friendsgiving dinner now!
