So you like Alexa Chung’s eclectic vibe. Well now, borrowing from this fashion muse is as simple as shopping her latest collaboration with AG Jeans.

An Early Exit: Gucci Says Goodbye to Its Creative Director

In December, news broke that Gucci Creative Director Frida Giannini would part ways with the Italian fashion house after more than a decade working for the label. Her departure was planned for February – but as of this week, Frida’s tenure has come to an abrupt close. The timing is less than ideal, with a menswear show scheduled […]

Back at It: Fashion Critic Cathy Horyn's New Gig

The Cut, New York Magazine’s style-focused website, has a new recruit: former New York Times fashion critic Cathy Horyn. She will cover spring/summer and fall/winter collections in New York and Paris, but the site hopes she’ll eventually contribute more than reviews (op-eds or video pieces, perhaps?). Cathy told WWD, “It’s a new platform for me, a nice change, and I look forward […]

Victoria Beckham Answers to Vogue – 73 Times

Who was in front of the lens for the latest episode of Vogue‘s web series 73 Questions? None other than Victoria Beckham. The former Spice Girl and current fashion designer answered a rapid-fire round of mind-probing questions, from daily rituals to David Beckham, all without cracking a smile. Victoria leads viewers through her London showroom as she dishes out some surprising answers (Favorite flavor? Salt.) among more predictable replies […]

Farewell, C. Wonder (and Your Always-Peppy Pieces)

The time has come to say goodbye to C. Wonder‘s peppy, prep-centric line of apparel, accessories, and gifts. Yesterday, the brand confirmed it will close all its store locations, followed by the shuttering of its website in coming weeks. C. Wonder hit several milestones since its 2011 launch in the SoHo neighborhood of New York City, including […]

Heading Downtown: NYFW Is on the Move

Change is in the air for New York Fashion Week. Yesterday WWD reported that come September, runways will swap Lincoln Center for yet-to-be-named downtown digs. According to the event’s organizers, it’s too early to disclose the new destination. However, site theories abound. Could several venues host the seasonal show? And what about Culture Shed, which is still being […]

High-Fashion Stockings We’d Like Santa to Fill

WWD asked fashion heavy-hitters to sketch their dream Christmas stockings – and of course, they’re as elaborate as the designs you’d see on the runway. Lela Rose went for a stiletto-inspired silhouette filled with kitchen essentials to signal her love of holiday entertaining. Anna Sui, meanwhile, went more old-school in her version, using a Victorian boot shape […]

Kim and Kanye Pucker Up for Their First Ad Campaign

Since their Vogue cover last spring, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have continued winning the affection of high fashion. The couple’s latest move? Entering the world of luxe advertising for Balmain’s Spring/Summer 2015 menswear campaign. Conceptualized by the house’s creative director Olivier Rousteing, who also happens to be their close pal, the ads show the duo posing provocatively together – and looking downright […]

The End of an Era: NYFW Says Bye to Lincoln Center

The rumors are true: after this February’s shows, New York Fashion Week will be forced out of Lincoln Center’s Damrosch Park, its home since 2010.

Due to their claim, Fashion Week will be prevented from […]

Alexandra Ryan

Styling Director

Ten years ago, I launched a personal shopping business. It was my gateway to styling, from editorial shoots to film sets and, finally, e-commerce. I’m a tomboy at heart, so naturally I have a soft spot for the perfect grey fitted sweatshirt and a great pair of flats.

By day, I’m an executive assistant at Rue. And by night, you’ll find me posting to my personal style blog, Cupcakes & Couture. I’m a lover of all things feminine and whimsical, I’m a collector of vintage designer handbags, and I’m constantly striving to achieve that effortless Parisian-chic look.

Beauty Director

As a born-and-bred New Yorker, I’ve been immersed in style my whole life. I learned the trade at Bloomingdale’s, then moved on to Saks Fifth Avenue, Burberry, and Ralph Lauren. Now, after more than 20 years in luxury retail, I head up Rue’s constantly growing beauty and shoe department.

Brianna Lapolla

Caroline Mauro

Senior Stylist

My first foray into styling was a stint in the wardrobe department on the show What Not to Wear. I often find inspiration in street style, with my personal look skewing on the sportswear and androgynous side. Head-to-toe black? I’m all about it. If you see me with a bright lip, be concerned.

Elizabeth Burns

Fashion Editor

My career started in personal shopping, where I worked with a global set of well-heeled clients to furnish their wardrobes and homes. That led me to the world of fashion editorial, first at Lucky and now at Rue. I’m a storyteller at heart, whether it’s curating an icon’s style or capturing trends. Outside the office, you’ll find me wandering the halls of the Met.

When it comes to my style aesthetic, I’m constantly inspired by things other than fashion (think old movies, the book I’m currently reading, and architecture). I dress for my mood, so it’s not unusual to see me in leather and Dr. Martens one day, and penny loafers and a cardigan the next.

For nearly a decade, I’ve worked in e-commerce telling style stories. The ones that stand out most? They go deeper than just trends. Think the history behind a Turkish rug or the craft that goes into a pair of Italian boots. That said – you won’t find me taking my own personal style too seriously. If it surprises and delights me, I’ll wear it.

John Camilleri

Creative Director

With more than 20 years in the fashion industry, I’ve worked on everything from mass-market brands to high-end advertising agencies. My kind of men’s style is all about refined simplicity – easy, accessible, and not overthought. Right now, I’m super excited about the all-American look and the iconic labels and personalities that bring it to life.

Kasey Rowe

Fashion Editor

I’ve spent the past few years translating street style, high fashion, and pop culture into shoppable experiences on Rue. At my core, I am a visual storyteller with a knack for finding low-ticket items that look expensive. In my free time, I obsess over all things home. My dream Saturday? Antiquing in the morning and trying a new recipe at night.
