A naked billboard, a celebrity in blackface, and more of 2013's biggest fashion faux pas

Luckily, there were plenty of fashion faux pas committed in 2013.

From Elle magazine’s Melissa McCarthy cover-up to the Jay-Z and Barneys backlash, and Julianne Hough’s regrettable Halloween costume, read on to see the style headlines that got people talking… and not in a good way.

Trish Summerville really kicked up the Capitol’s style quotient when she was hired to design the costumes for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Fashion may be an ugly business in Panem, but the Hunger Games inspired clothing line that Summerville created for Net-A-Porter is all splendor.

The Capitol Couture line includes everything from a laser-cut patent leather dress to a silver bow-and-arrow ear cuff, but there’s also something for the Hunger Games fan who hits the gym like her life depends on it. READ FULL STORY

Not sure what to get the pop culture geek in your life this holiday season? PopStyle is here to help! From the hottest gadgets to the oddest collectibles, we’re rounding up the best gifts in movies, music, TV, books, and more with our Gift of the Day.

Not only do they create good movies and gorgeous children, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie also make award-winning wine.

This year, Brangelina got into the winemaking business with the release of Jolie-Pitt & Perrin Côtes de Provence Rosé Miraval 2012, made from grapes grown on their estate in Southern France. The bottling ranked No.84 overall on Wine Spectator‘s Top 100 list of the best wines of the year, taking the top spot among rosés.

Considering the fact that I gave Duck Commander’s Triple Threat Red Blend — brought to you by the Robertson family of Duck Dynasty fame — the thumbs up because it’s “drinkable,” I’ll borrow Wine Spectator editor Kim Marcus’ description of the Jolie-Pitt rosé.  READ FULL STORY

Kristen Stewart is the face of Chanel's latest campaign

When Kristen Stewart refuses to crack a smile for photographers on the red carpet, is it because she’s being surly or is she just practicing her Blue Steel?

This morning it was announced that the actress has scored a coveted celebrity modeling gig with Chanel. Stewart will star in the campaign for the French fashion label’s Métiers d’Art Paris-Dallas 2013-2014 collection, which was presented in Dallas, Texas on Tuesday. The Twilight star sat alongside Dakota Fanning, Lily Collins, Dakota Fanning, and Zoe Kravitz at the show, where models dressed in Karl Lagerfeld’s Americana-inspired pieces walked down a runway that looked like the inside of a barn.

Each year, Chanel’s Métiers d’Art collection is inspired by a particular geographic location, making its debut in that city. Does this year’s Dallas theme mean that Stewart will look cowboy chic in her ad campaign?

See the 'Fifty Shades of Grey' lingerie line -- NSFW VIDEO

Good news for Fifty Shades of Grey fans who live in Northern Europe — author E.L. James has designed a line of sexy lingerie.

James has designed a 26-piece collection of bras, panties, stockings, corsets, and nightgowns in collaboration with Swedish clothing chain KappAhl. Priced between  €12.95 ($17.54 US) and €59.95 ($81.18 US), the unmentionables come in various shades of grey (natch), black, and red, and are adorned with lace embellishments.

What was it like for the romance novelist to try her hand at lingerie design? “It has been incredibly exciting and interesting to be involved in the process, from the production of the concept through the design to the final collection,” James says in a press release from the brand. “I have been deeply involved at all stages, and my thoughts and suggestions are clearly visible in the collection’s garments.”

While the collection is currently available at over 360 KappAhl retail locations in Sweden, it’s not sold online and there are no plans to make it available in the United States. Anyone can ogle the line thanks to a (NSFW) video of a Fifty Shades fashion show. Click on to watch.

Meet 'Fifty Shades of Grey' costume designer Mark Bridges

Filming on the movie adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey is officially underway, and an Oscar-winning costume designer is dressing (and undressing) the film’s stars.

According to IMDB, Mark Bridges — who is best known for his work on Silver Linings Playbook, The Fighter, and Captain Phillips, and won the Oscar for The Artist in 2012 — joined the cast and crew on location in Vancouver over the Thanksgiving weekend.

The first photo from the set shows Dakota Johnson (as Anastasia Steele) and Jamie Dornan (as Christian Grey) filming a scene that appears to be the couple’s first rendezvous. In the book, Anastasia is described as wearing a navy-blue jacket, blue sweater, skirt, and a pair of brown boots when she meets Christian, who is clad in a “fine gray suit, white shirt, and black tie.” While both characters are fully clothed, Bridges has undoubtedly been busy pulling together a wardrobe that will consist of lots of lingerie for our heroine and plenty of crisp white shirts and ties for the leading man.

Will the costume designer take all his cues from the book, or will he make some sartorial changes?  READ FULL STORY

Costumes from the original 'Sound of Music' to go up for auction

Talk about a revival. Not only is Carrie Underwood taking over the role of Maria in NBC’s The Sound of Music Live! (Dec. 5 at 8 pm), but costumes from the 1965 film — based on the original Broadway musical by Lindsay and Crouse — are hitting the auction block.

On December 21, Profiles in History will sell fourteen costumes from the Oscar-winning movie musical to the highest bidder, a lot that’s estimated to be worth $150,000-$250,000. An auction of Sound of Music costumes held last summer brought in over $1.5 million.

Among the items up for grabs this time are garments worn by the Von Trapp children and the jacket and pants worn by Captain Von Trapp (Christopher Plummer) when the family performs the songs “Edelweiss” and “So Long, Farewell,” at the concert that sets off the film’s final sequence.

The lot was pulled from the Western Costume Company’s 6000-piece “Star Collection,” marking the first time costumes from archive have been sold in over 25 years. A release about the upcoming Sound of Music auction hints that other costumes from the archive — which includes Vivian Leigh’s “Shantytown” dress from Gone with the Wind and Rudolph Valentino’s robes from the 1926 silent film Son of the Sheik — will soon hit the block.

See some of the Sound of Music costumes up for bids after the jump…
