Princess Eugenie's nails for the Diamond Jubilee
Princess Eugenie had a quite modern way of getting into the spirit of celebrating the Diamond Jubilee marking her grandmother Queen Elizabeth II's 60 years on the British throne. She wore nail art depicting the Union Jack to services Monday at Guildhall wrapping up the multi-day celebration. [Styleite]

The queen herself has to look good all the time, and she gets help from a dressmaker, milliner, and assistant who breaks in her shoes and more. And over the years she's learned some tricks about preventing wardrobe malfunctions. For instance, little weights sewn into the hems of her skirts keep them from flying up in an errant breeze, dressmaker Stewart Parvin says. [People]

Banana Republic's Trina Turk collection launches Thursday. Los Angeles Times Fashion Critic Booth Moore recently visited her at her Palm Springs home to talk about her inspiration. [Los Angeles Times] 

California brand Band of Outsiders will participate in the Paris men's ready-to-wear shows for the first time, and the label is doing something rather different. WWD reports that the plan is to show the entire collection over a 60-hour period on one model starting June 27. The model will be in a cardboard box on display at a gallery. He'll be allowed to leave the box every two hours during waking hours to attend to necessities and change to a new outfit ... but he'll sleep in the box. [WWD] 

Victoria's Secret model Doutzen Kroes tells it like it is. She has that amazing body because she works at it with a personal trainer. She boxes; she jumps rope. "It's my job," she told Fashionologie. "You can't compare my life to somebody who goes to work every day; I have to look this way." Fashionologie

Amanda Brooks, who resigned her post as fashion director for Barneys to move to a farm, has donated much of her work wardrobe to New York City Opera's pop-up thrift shop. The wares reportedly include Prada, 3.1 Phillip lim, Jil Sander, Yves Saint Laurent and Chanel. [NY Post]
