Apps for the style-conscious: eBay Fashion on the go

Shop eBay's fashion offers and explore designer Lulu Guinness's world with this week's new app releases for the iPhone.

eBay Fashion

The online auctioneer is upping its fashion game: after unveiling its eBay Fashion branch and Fashion Vault sample sales, it has now launched a fashion app that allows you to browse, buy, and even virtually 'try on' the site's offers on the go. A personalized online 'closet' lets you store and combine your favorite items.

Lulu Guinness

Fans of the quirky British designer can now explore her inspiration board, her stores and their surroundings, and learn more about her favorite city spots. An extra gimmicky tool even lets you customize your personal pictures with her extravagant lip-shaped clutches.

This new app brings you beauty tutorials, look inspirations, and even gives you all the information you need to know about L'Oréal products - simply use your iPhone in store in order to "scan" them.

iPad apps:

Vogue

The first European fashion magazine to launch an iPad application, Vogue has categorized the digital version of its magazine into three offerings: there are news relating to fashion, beauty, and lifestyle, as well as magazine features such as interviews, editorials, or making-ofs, and finally trend feeds consisting of slideshows and videos from international fashion shows.

Search for 'Vogue' in your local (European) iTunes store to get the app, which will be available for free for a limited period of time.

A|X Stylepad

Not an actual app but inspired by the iPad, this online portfolio of the Armani Exchange swimwear campaign makes the most of the gadget: flip through pictures, watch videos with the models (including Armani model and soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo's girlfriend Irina Shayk), explore the shoot locations Turks and Caicos, and of course, shop the collection. There's even a category for pictures you can only access if you're 18 or older, so brave yourself for imagery even hotter than the new Ronaldo underwear campaign.

Yoox

With the shopping site's new app, you can shop all over the world, buy presents and have them delivered, create a wish list of your favorite products, and share your choices with your friends.

eBay

Many reviewers are claiming that the shopping experience is more graphical, seamless, and all in all more enjoyable than on the auctioner's website. Comes with integrated access to your personal eBay account.
