Achieving great style comes from knowing who you are and celebrating it! For the fourth installment ofSarah Jessica Parker’s guest editor series, the designer pays tribute to six women who representSJP Collection street style. From Morocco to New York City to Los Angeles, watch the creative vision of Sarah Jessica and partner George Malkemus come to life in true fashionable form.
It’s enormously flattering and very fulfilling for those of us who work on the SJP Collection to see the shoes out in the world, having adventures across the globe and doing what they’re supposed to do for women.
I love imagining all that grosgrain traveling around—crossing city streets, strolling through parks and universities, sitting in meetings, driving cars, dropping off kids and meeting friends for lunch. And now to see the shoes actually having these experiences is amazing.
The women who submitted their street-style photographs really have their own elegance. They’re all special and very individual. I especially love the different shapes and sizes and ethnic backgrounds. It makes a nice visual montage of beauty.
Our global trend reporter, Crystal Nicodemus, reports on her music festival adventures from sunny California.
Hello from Indio! It’s been a wild week of musical mayhem and poolside parties down in the Coachella Valley. I’m totally exhausted and exhilarated all at once. My favorite event was definitely UGG® Australia’s Style Haven. This one-of-a-kind house party was the perfect mix of festival chic and laid-back fun. Between previewing the latest collection from UGG Australia, the putting green, the nail art station, the snow cone machine and the ping-pong table, there were a million things to do!
Pair your rhythmic prints with the bold pieces by Eddie Borgo, whose spring collection is a “study in the timelessness of geometry and form,” according to the New York-based designer. “My work has a lot to do with simple geometry—the idea of taking a decorated shape and stripping it down to its geometric foundation.”
A hybrid of American socialite and self-made mogul, Nicole Richie has morphed into a fashion industry darling by staying true to one philosophy: play by your own rules. The daughter of music legend Lionel Richie, Nicole fuels her predisposed artistic nature through the creative direction of House of Harlow 1960 (HOH1960), a lifestyle brand named after her daughter.
When it comes to channeling inspiration for the collection that includes everything from jewelry to shoes to sunglasses, Nicole, who is the wife to Good Charlotte front man Joel Madden, affirms that “everything starts with music. I’m a huge fan of the music of ’60s and the ’70s, so classic rock is something I listen to every day. My team and I work in a very creative space. We’ll listen to music and throw out design ideas.”
Kate Moss for Topshop is coming to Nordstrom April 30! To celebrate this collaboration, NOWNESS presents a series of videos featuring celebs and friends of Kate speaking about her collection and her unique personality.

“Whether she’s hanging out with Donatella Versace or my dad…you get the same Kate Moss…Kate and Topshop aren’t intimidating, but they still manage to be high fashion.” —Nick Grimshaw

You guys, festival season is HERE. Whether you’re planning on hitting up the Southern California desert, the bucolic Tennessee countryside, a major city like Chicago or New York or taking in crazy, awe-inspiring views in Eastern Washington, there’s TONS of music to check out and much fun to be had. But before you grab your sunscreen and sandals, check out this itty-bitty sampling of the bands we’d be super-stoked to see this summer.
It’s crazy to consider, but this song, off The Strokes’ debut album Is This It, is thirteen years old. What’s crazier is that it still holds up quite nicely. Keep your eyes peeled for a cameo from Slash and, more obviously, Bob Pollard and the rest of G.B.V.
It’s time for another edition of “House Call,” an ongoing series in which we peek inside the abode of a Nordstrom employee. This time we’re heading to Seattle’s Lake City neighborhood for a tour of the architecturally stunning home of Red Godfrey, our Fashion Office V.P.
