A Gorgeous New Game of Thrones Book Showcases the Series' True Winners: the Costumes

A Gorgeous New Game of Thrones Book Showcases the Series' True Winners: the Costumes

Though a not-insignificant portion of the Game of Thrones fan base is still fuming over how the series ended , even the most outspoken haters still have to admit that even if the story came up short , certain among the show’s elements were still as dazzling as ever. For instance: the intricately detailed costumes.

Game of Thrones: The Costumes, a new book from HBO and Insight Editions, puts...

Mattel's New Star Wars Barbies Are Amazingly Extra

Mattel's New Star Wars Barbies Are Amazingly Extra
Toys and CollectiblesAction figures, statues, exclusives, and other merchandise. Beware: if you look here, you’re probably going to spend some money afterwards.  

When you think of “Star Wars Barbies” as a concept, you think it would be very easy for Mattel to just put Barbie in a Princess Leia costume and call it a day. Which, to be fair, Mattel has indeed done. But it has also gone beyond...

The Star Wars Kids Channel’s “By the Numbers” series is one of the weirdest, most specific bits of official ephemera Lucasfilm puts out about Star Wars lately, a wonderful love...

Here Are the Clothes We Need For the Inevitable Apocalypse

Here Are the Clothes We Need For the Inevitable Apocalypse

Gelareh produces clothes that I absolutely will never be able to afford, but that I would absolutely loot post-apocalypse. Although the white ones may draw far too much attention from the drones hunting us from the skies. But for now, the new look for spring and summer based on spinal columns.

If, for whatever reason, the future dystopia isn't a hot desert wasteland, good news! Galareh makes...

Star Trek: Discovery Could Revive The Next Generation's Famous Unisex Dress

Star Trek: Discovery Could Revive The Next Generation's Famous Unisex Dress

Star Trek might primarily be about scientific exploration and the joys (and perils) of space travel, but it’s also occasionally about the future of fashion. From wacky interpretations of alien looks to the uniforms of our Starfleet heroes, debates around design and fashion have long been a part of the series, with Discovery soon to add the latest chapter.

After The Next Generation put its...

The More I See the New Doctor's Outfit, the More I Love It

The More I See the New Doctor's Outfit, the More I Love It

When the Thirteenth Doctor’s rainbow-accented costume was first revealed , I was admittedly a little reticent. I didn’t dislike it, per se, but there was a quirkiness to it which made it stand out much more than the typical aesthetics of Doctor Who’s modern Time Lord couture . But the more and more we see of season 11, the more the ensemble really works.

As we’ve started getting little...

Mister Miracle Is Secretly the DC Universe's Casual Fashion Icon

Scott Free is many things. He is Mister Miracle, master escape artist. He is a New God, raised in the hellfires of Darkseid’s Apokolips. He is currently the Highfather, ascendant ruler and co-general of New Genesis and its armies. He’s a new Dad . But he is also this: a lowkey casual style thought leader.

Superman's Underwear May Be Back (On the Outside) in Action Comics #1000, But It Might Not Be Staying

Superman's Underwear May Be Back (On the Outside) in <i>Action Comics #1000</i>, But It Might Not Be Staying

When you think of Superman’s costume, what do you think of first? The cape? Fair. The S-Shield? Good one. But you probably also think of red undies, proudly worn outside the blue suit instead of, well, under it. They’ve been gone for a while, and are making a triumphant return soon... but they may not be here for long.

The celebratory Action Comics #1000 was heralded with a statement that...

The 2015 Fashion Trend We Love: Stars! Stars On Everything!

There is no way I could afford these or, save the coat, look good in any of them. But that doesn’t mean these star-filled selections from the Fall/Winter Emilio Pucci Collection aren’t fabulous.

All Hail Daenerys Styleborn of the House of Gucci, Mother of Fashion

Gucci Gucci, Louis Louis, Fendi Fendi, DRAGON. Gucci brought the Mother of Dragons to the runway at this year’s Fall/Winter Show during Milan Fashion Week. Because... fashion.

One of the models strutted the catwalk in a getup that felt like Cersei Lannister circa season seven mixed with some Henry VII arm bags, all while carrying a sleeping baby dragon. Why? Because... fashion!

Janelle Monae IS the Droid <i>Star Wars</i> Was Looking For

The deluge of Star Wars marketing and promotional tie-ins is already getting kind of ridiculous—but it’s all worthwhile, if it results in Janelle Monae becoming one of the faces of the Resistance against the First Order.

Cover Girl just unveiled the latest of their Star Wars-themed makeup lines, featuring the indispensable android musician as their “Resistance Pilot.”

Hot Topic's New DC-Based Jackets Look Sort of Great

Hot Topic's New DC-Based Jackets Look Sort of Great

Okay, actually the best one is technically a hoodie and they’re all based on the DC TV shows. But they still look great. Although, predictably, the Gotham one is a little off.

The Supergirl hoodie is really the best one here. And the zip-down hood turning into her cape is one of the best uses of that kind of clothing.

The Flash jacket is pretty much exactly what you’d expect. We do question...

André Courrèges Defined the Shape of Space Age Fashion

André Courrèges Defined the Shape of Space Age Fashion

David Bowie wasn’t the only icon we lost in the past few days. André Courrèges, the indelible Parisian fashion designer who helped to define the Space Age, also died late last week. Courrèges’ designs formed a huge part of what we think of as “futuristic” sixties fashion, and our ideas of what people would wear in space.

Check out some of our favorite 1960s and early 1970s Courrèges designs...

Seriously, These Opera Costumes Are The Most Insane Thing We've Seen in Ages

The San Francisco Opera is doing a production of Mozart’s The Magic Flute starting tomorrow, and the costumes are this astonishing late-1980s fantasia that just makes me want to watch classic MTV for the next 10 hours.

These images come via the SF Opera’s official photo gallery for The Magic Flute, and were taken by photographer Cory Weaver, and the designs are by Production Designer Jun...

New Line of <i>Star Trek</i> Gear Allows You to Have that Tribble Fur Coat You've Always Wanted

Look how happy she is in that coat make from the skins of the universe’s fastest furry reproducer! That could be you. You could be a hero to the Klingon Empire in that thing.

Her Universe and Think Geek have partnered up to do a collection of Star Trek-inspired clothing that is legitimately great. This command shirt, for example, is damn near perfect and I would wear it in all three colors:
