The Best Email Of The Day award goes tooooo: Dracula in Dior! If you're a vampire in a fashion rut, this one's for you.
"If the Devil Can Wear Prada, Shouldn't Dracula Wear Dior? Scarlett Stoker's new eBook, Dracula in Dior, is the first ever style guide for vampires, undead obsessives and Twilight and True Blood fans.
NEW YORK, May 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Twilight. True Blood. Dracula. Vampires are hotter than the sun they don't walk in, and why? Because they have two things we all want. Eternal life. Eternal thinness. Sure, their books sell millions and their movies and TV shows are hits, but when it comes to style, too many are still dressing like the Count from Sesame Street.
That's why Scarlett Stoker's new eBook Dracula in Dior - The Ultimate A-Z Fashion Guide for the Undead and Those Who Wish To Be is set to be essential summer reading for every vamp and undead obsessive.
"It's time for older vampires to abandon the cliches and younger vamps to ditch the hoodies and torn jeans," says Stoker, creator of the humorous must-read vampire style blog www.DraculainDior.com. "Vampires need to embrace the runway and start killing in fashion."
"A wise human once said that good clothes open all doors," explains Stoker. "And if you're a vampire, beyond those doors are a lot of necks. The devil wears Prada because it works for him. Shouldn't Dracula and his cohorts do their jobs in Dior? And Marc Jacobs and Gucci and Donna Karan."
Dracula in Dior cleverly combines the twin passion of millions - fashion and vampires - and in this comic A-Z guide, Scarlett teaches vampires:
- · Why they need to ditch those boring capes and corsets and wear designer.
- · How jewelry is a vampire's best friend for hiding those annoying dinner bloodstains. Just ask Michelle Obama.
- · Why Martha Stewart should be the role model of every undead housewife.
Dracula in Dior is the ultimate A-Z for fashionistas and the undead, either freshly turned or those approaching their 1000th birthday.
Available on Kindle, Nook and iBooks.

Emma Watson's "all grown up" in the June/July issue of W shot by Michael Thompson. Watson tells them she's had no problem with her youth. “I’ve never wanted to grow up too fast. I wanted to wear a sports bra until I was 22!” she explains. “The allure of being sexy never really held any excitement for me. I’ve never been in a terrible rush to be seen as a woman.” Refreshing!

Donatella Versace and J.W. Anderson celebrated the new Versus Versace with a runway show and blow out party last night at the Armory on Lex in Manhattan. It's Wednesday night! Why not? Woody Allen (really), Joe Jonas, Darren Criss, Heidi Klum, Melissa George, Mia Moretti, Paloma Faith, and Harry Brant were a few of the names that came out to enjoy performances by Grimes, Angel Haze, and Dead Sara. Not to mention a special DJ set by Maxwell at the end of the night. Models were prepared in a visible backstage complete with one-way mirrors. Off. The. Hook. Let's just come out and say it...1) Nobody throws a party like Donatella. 2) How freaking cute is J.W. Anderson?
