Growing up with a mother who goes by the name of Madonna is no easy feat. Talk about living in someone’s shadow. But Lourdes Leon, Madonna’s first child, has never seemed to have a problem standing out on her own. And like her mother, fashion has always been the way by which the 13-year-old asserts her individuality.
A Los Angeles boutique owner got Francisco Costa to remake Cher Horowitz’s famous white Calvin Klein dress from the movie ‘Clueless.’ You know, the one that looked like underwear.
Now just wait until you see the “private plane” on which she flew.
Scorned star Kanye West may have made a comeback performance during Sunday’s BET Awards, but the post-show buzz focused mainly on Kanye’s gigantic and Egyptian-inspired adornments. Well, in the last 24 hours, detailed information on the jewels — which honestly looked as if they were personally thieved from the Pyramid tombs themselves — surfaced, including up-close angle shots and a six-figure price tag.
The Special Court for Sierra Leone has finally proven that there is a force more powerful than Naomi Campbell: international law.
It’s the health discovery heard ’round the world — in the BCBGs, the Nordstroms, the lifestyle shopping centers popping up on every corner of suburbia — and it’s making us realize why the caged bird sings. Okay, not really, but we are starting to make sense of the boyfriends and brothers who sit gloomily in loveseats and on benches of retail stores everywhere.
Would you pay more for your child’s designer duds than you would for your own? If you want your baby decked out in Gucci or Chloe — or in the $400 D&G Junior Dress above — you might not have much of a choice.
On Thursday night, Larry King announced that he would be ending his long-running CNN show in the fall. While we’re certainly sad to see him go — who else could interview fallen celebrities with such gravitas? — what we’ll miss most about King are his iconic suspenders. Which got us thinking: what other news personalities can take credit for having such a staple style? Turns out: a few!
When Lindsay Lohan began wearing — and soon thereafter selling — leggings with slits on the sides, we were instantly repelled. The cut out legging trend seemed tacky, to put it lightly, and we waiting anxiously for its reign to end. Luckily, not too many fashion forward folks embraced the trend. After seeing Rosie Huntington-Whiteley in the denim version of the cut out legging, one may have thought we’d have the same reaction — ew. But for some reason, we were left wondering, is it bad that we think this looks sort of cute?
You’d think Lindsay Lohan was already in enough trouble with the law, but it turns out girlfriend can’t get enough of it. An LA boutique is suing the starlet for over $16,000 worth of merchandise she never paid for.
With your Fourth of July barbecues in mind, I was cosmically drawn to this lightweight tie dye halter dress for today. A quintessential summer piece from the economically sustainable line, Suno, it is exactly what you need to shut it down under the sun. But before you slip one on, take a moment to read about the line’s story.
Unlike a certain Cruise, celeb-heir Lourdes Leon has managed to keep a pretty low profile. But now that Madonna‘s eldest is all of 13 and has a clothing line to promote, it seems mom is finally letting little Lola loose.
Daisy Lowe has decided to translate her style icon status into the real thing. WWD reported that Lowe will be the next model-turned-designer, joining the likes of Kate Moss and Jessica Stam.
Late last week, Nordstrom.com came under fire for photoshopping a model’s waist to what we called “alien-like proportions.” Nordstrom, somewhat to their credit, responded quickly, tweeting: “Our policy is not 2 thicken or thin models. See original photo. We smoothed wrinkles, nipples & upped colr.” Unfortunately, the image accompanying their tweet didn’t do much for their argument — and now the retailer has released a second, far more thorough statement outlining their so-called retouching policy. Which is to say: they don’t really have one.
Shoulder pads are one of the many trends men simply don’t seem to understand. While we personally would put up fists to get our hands on a Balmain Michael Jackson-inspired blazer, we do understand that many find the trend, well, ugly. After all, do we really want our shoulders to look that wide? But what if women wanted more than just the blazer; what if they wanted the real thing?
The average guy now spends only seven minutes less getting ready than the average woman. He also spends more on beauty products and uses more of them. Just don’t call him a metrosexual. That’ll just piss him off.
A series of photos featuring an unnamed male model have been slowly leaking onto SHOWStudio.com. Described as images from a Vogue Hommes Japan shoot styled by Nicola Formichetti and shot by Nick Knight (who not-so-coincidentally is the mastermind behind ShowStudio), the photos are stirring up some buzz in the blogosphere as to whether the unnamed male model is really Lady Gaga.
We don’t know why it’s such a tragic time to be a model, but we do know that Stephanie Seymour, who used to walk for Victoria’s Secret, kinda needs to get her act together.
Wunderbar, As they say in Germany! As information on the upcoming Project Runway continues to trickle in, we can’t help but anticipate the July 29th premiere of the eighth season. (Has the show really been around that long?!) People magazine has just confirmed that episodes of the new season will each see a 30-minute extension from their usual one-hour time slot — leaving plenty of space for showroom drama.
Fashion editors find inspiration in the strangest places — in barns, in supermarkets, in Terry Richardson‘s studio. But sometimes, a fun-filled RPG (that’s role-player game, for those of you who didn’t know) can be exactly the kind of spark needed to get a concept for an amazing group of photos.
