Why substance wins over style for racing queen Francesca Cumani

WHATEVER you do don’t tell Francesca Cumani that it makes a nice change to have an attractive woman with great style talking about horse racing. “It might be intended as a compliment but I get highly offended at suggestions I might be there for anything other than my racing knowledge,” the 31-year-old says. Cumani was born into racing royalty, the daughter of legendary Italian trainer Luca Cumani, and grew up surrounded by racehorses, jockeys and trainers. She worked with horses from the age of 11, riding track work. “I think you... [Lire la suite]

Cozy, With a Dash of Neon

The fashion designer Rachel Antonoff’s search for a warm, snug harbor began early. As a little girl growing up in Bergenfield, N.J., she tried climbing into her mother’s underwear drawer. “It collapsed on me, obviously,” recalled Ms. Antonoff, 33, who was bloodied but unbowed. “I loved books like ‘The Borrowers,’ stories that had to do with nooks and secret places. And when I saw my mother’s drawer, I thought, ‘I’ll bet that’s a cozy place to live.’ ” Cozy is the aesthetic that is guiding Ms. Antonoff as she sets up housekeeping in... [Lire la suite]

The do's and don'ts of choosing and wearing a jumpsuit

It was a staple of '70s and '80s fashion, but the recent revival of the jumpsuit has cemented the stylish staying power of the all-in-one look.

"It's like a dress in the same way that it's one-piece dressing. If you want to style it and add elements, go for it. But you don't have to. It looks fabulous just the way it is."
