Shopbop’s editorial stylist Lauren just got back from shooting in LA, and while there was a lot of work to do, there was an equal amount of fun to be had. Here are some of the behind-the-scene photos from today’s featured lookbook, The Next Wave.

A Thayer bikini (similar) makes us want to cut loose.
Double cheeseburger anyone?

I’ve spent a lot of time trying to think outside the box when it comes to bridal styling. We’ve featured alternative wraps for winter weddings, edgy wedding day make-up, and dresses for those among us who would rather skip the ceremony and go right to the party. This time, I’m challenging myself to take a fresh look at the gal who truly wants the fully realized, classic take on her wedding.
I’m picturing the old-world cathedral, the grand ballroom glittering with candles and crystals, and estate grounds replete with peacocks and stone fountains. This is the event of the season, a sparkling soiree, the crème de la crème of refined revelry. There will be a feast fit for royalty, dancing ‘til dawn, and cascades of champagne.
A Jenny Packham jeweled veil adds effortless grace to the classic bridal look.
I whipped together all the glamour, drama, and extravagance I could muster—I even threw in a veil for the first time! Our bride may be going for a classic look, but she is still sexy, chic, and romantic. I looked to Reem Acra for the exquisite dress and to Jenny Packham for the glitter. Kayla from Daffodil Parker created an enchanting and regal bouquet of deep red roses, seeded eucalyptus, bay leaves, and acacia foliage. It’s a fresh take on the classic bride, Shopbop-style!

Wear it with: Tiger-print Zimmermann pumps and a matching re:named top.
It’s been a crazy week here at Shopbop HQ, and the only thing more scattered than my brain is my assortment of links. There’s no way to connect high heels, cheap beer, and a rapper’s life story—trust me, I tried—so embrace the randomness and enjoy!
Sneakers might have been a huge fashion-week trend from New York to Paris this year, but I’ll always have a weakness for a killer stiletto. Marie Claire explores the history of the heel from royalty to red soles.
Being from Wisconsin, Pabst Blue Ribbon has always been a popular beverage choice around here, and in the past few years, the rest of the country has begun to catch on. Bottoms up!
I tend to think of rappers as larger-than-life personalities, impervious to the criticisms of fans and their peers. But, as this poignant interview with T-Pain shows, that impression is far from the truth.
