It's not every day that your indie venture turns 30, and so Kim Hastreiter has a reason to smile. And with her iconic red glasses perched atop her nose and her adorable fluffy pup by her side, the downtown dabbler behind Paper Magazine certainly smiles like someone who's been lucky enough to do what they love for over three decades, all while leading a fabulous life on the way. Though she cites the creative geniuses she surrounds herself with as the ultimate source of inspiration, Kim herself has been a major cultural curator of the evolving New York scene since before she launched Paper back in 1984. Let's just say that when Bill Cunningham brings you into the biz, chances are you've got a bright future ahead.
While we certainly wouldn't mind hanging out a few seats away from Beyoncé (or in the same room as her, for that matter) there's nothing quite like experiencing the Grammy Awards from the snug, smug domain of the social media universe. In the age of #TrendingTopics and Tumblr, every major pop culture broadcast becomes a breeding ground for viral moments, iconic memes, and parody accounts to be talked about around water coolers for (at least) a few days to come. So from luxe sippy cups to mysterious hats, let's relive the 2014 Grammy Awards via the hilarious commentary of the Twitter lexicon and beyond!
As awards season sweeps through L.A., last night was all about the music with pop stars, recording artists, and industry folk out in full force for the 56th Annual Grammy Awards. One of the most exciting nights in red carpet season fashion, we were thoroughly impressed with last night's showing and have gathered our favorites to share with you now. From two Katy Perry moments to loads of metallic and shimmer, we bring you our top 10 looks of the 2014 Grammys.
Over the weekend in NYC, No.8 invited model Cory Bond to host a special Super Model Saturdays party, Ferran Adria hosted a star studded dinner following the opening of his new exhibit "Notes on Creativity," and more!
LA was bursting with music mavens last night, as the 56th Annual Grammy Awards kicked off with Queen Bey and King Jay at the helm. Once everyone was able to focus on the awards again, and after Jay Z declared his latest Grammy as Blue Ivy's newest sippy cup, the crowd shifted and we were all feeling the Beatlemania vibes. Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr performed together on stage (gasp!), while Paul also casually won another Grammy out of nowhere. Taylor Swift gave an amazing but also bizarre head-banging performance, and then watched everyone else around her win Grammys. We were pretty disappointed at the poor attendance however, as Rihanna, Justin, Miley and Kimye were nowhere to be found... and we assume Justin Bieber's intervention wasn't finished in time to attend.

In NYC, the streets are so icy and slushy that it's impossible to walk like a normal human being without slipping and embarrassing yourself. Moreover, it's absolutely frigid, which makes looking good seem nearly impossible. Skip the bulky layers... as much as we love puff pastries, it's probably best not to resemble one. Instead, click through for 10 faux fur pieces to keep you chic and warm at the same time!
While its hard to pick out an everyday outfit in these freezing temps, it's even harder to pull something together for a night out. Sometimes, the best answer is to throw on a sweater dress to keep you feeling warm and cozy all night long. So, to help with some perfect options, we've rounded up 8 sweater dresses we're loving. Click through and treat yourself to something chic and cozy this winter.

The Grammys are this Sunday and we’re listening to all the nominees to get ready. We took a look at a bunch of metrics—the albums people are listening to on +Google Play Music, the top Google searches for best new artist, and YouTube views for record of the year—to see if Google can successfully predict which artists take home the top prizes. And here are Google’s official predictions.
Ah, the haute couture shows à Paris—a week-long whirlwind of extravagant outfits, intricate details, and...a lot of Karl Lagerfeld. The runways were ready with one-of-a-kind pieces to whet our fashion appetites in anticipation of the coming NYFW shows, while the sidewalks were filled with off-duty models and street style stars who moonlight as editors. Though the past week of Paris action has had us completely enthralled, we must admit to taking the vicarious route to France—A.K.A. some serious #PFW Instagram stalking. Hey, if it worked for us, it could work for you. Click through for a coutur-able recap that will make you feel like you were front row.
