When photos surface of celebrities before they were famous, people go wild. Whispers of, “So that’s what her nose really looks like,” to “Awww, look how cute,” circulate instantaneously. Luckily for you, we’re always on the look out for pictures of our favorite fashion icons in their days of youth. In this edition of Time Warp, we’re taking a look back at some of today’s hottest models, to see what they looked like before they stalked the catwalks.
If it’s hard for you to imagine Stooges frontman Iggy Pop with a shirt on, then you’ll understand why we find his Barneys t-shirt line equally as perplexing.
It’s happened to the best of us — from bad tan lines to pale skin. What’s a busy girl to do? Well, if you’re flying in to or out of the UK’s Gatwick Airport, we’ve got a solution for you.
On Monday, when The Wall Street Journal announced that it had hired former Domino editor Deborah Needleman to head its lifestyle glossy WSJ., media minders immediately started making comparisons between her and newly named T Magazine editor Sally Singer.
Last night, Blake Lively celebrated the premiere of her Gossip Girl co-star Chace Crawford’s new film, “Twelve.” But while we normally love Lively — and her mind-bogglingly fabulous cleavage — we’re a little disappointed in this dress. From Chanel’s 2011 Cruise collection, the dress features an open back — which is great — and a flower-patterned lace midsection, which is not so great.
While we’re quick to criticize Taylor Momsen for her pantlessness, never did we worry such a trend would be picked up by men! But this month’s GQ proves us wrong, with a hilarious spread featuring the three stars of Scott Pilgrim vs. the World.
As part of the launch of Madonna’s new line Material Girl for Macy’s, daughter Lourdes Leon has been blogging up a storm on the brand’s website. At times insightful, at times hilarious, and at times somewhat illiterate, the posts prove that Lourdes is what we’d always suspected: a natural blogger.
Since reaching out to British designer Luella Bartley for its first limited collaboration line in 2006, Target has kept a firm grip on the pulse of the fashion world. And now WWD is reporting that the next collection on the menu is with none other than William Rast – proving that Target still knows how to win the love of the frugal fashionistas.
On Tuesday, news broke that Essence, the fashion glossy aimed at black women, had hired a new fashion director. But there was one problem — she was white. The outrage was pretty immediate, with former Essence staffers tweeting, Facebooking, and blogging their “anger” and confusion. And now Essence’s editor in chief, Angela Burt-Murray has responded.
We have such a love/hate relationship with Olivia Palermo. We hate her patronizing attitude and her inability to move her jaw. But we kind of love the fact that she’s willing to look like a total jerk on national television. And while we sort of hate that she has what appears to be a never-ending supply of really expensive clothing, we have to admit: we love her style. So it’s with mixed emotions that we’re reporting Palermo’s plans to design her very own clothing line.
Um, a Balenciaga bubble bath? Yes please! And no I do not mean jump in the tub dressed in Balenciaga—or any of your designer clothes (ever) for that matter—but do get down to your birthday suit and de-stress with the French fashion house’s new luxe shower gel.
We all know a guy or two who doesn’t believe in the concept of doing laundry. “Denim is the original napkin,” they swear. “This doesn’t smell,” they always insist. But when it comes to underwear, cleanliness is essential. The odor, the sweat, the… we’ll spare you. So what’s a laundry-loathing lad to do?
M.I.A. has a bone to pick with Lady Gaga — well, actually a few bones. She first called Gaga “a good mimic,” who is talented only at copying the likes of Madonna and Grace Jones, and now M.I.A. has taking to criticizing Gaga’s entire career path.So what is to be done to settle the feud that M.I.A. has fueled? Simple: a good, hearty edition of Fashion Wars.
No, we weren’t invited. Nor do we have the $30,400 entry fee had we been invited. But we do have an intrepid and conveniently located intern who goes by the name of Justin Fenner and who just so happens to live less than one block from the brouhaha and who was willing to give up whatever fabulous plans he might have had tonight in order to camp outside the barricades — yes, there are barricades — and feed us updates.
Great Scot! Yet another August cover for the appliquéd Miu Miu dress. The brand’s press office must have been hustling hard this summer.
Last night, Lea Michele walked the red carpet at Fox’s ‘Glee’ Academy event at The Music Box Theatre in Los Angeles wearing a one shouldered, calf-length dress. It’s part Michelle Obama oil spill outfit, part junior prom dress, and yes, we think even part chic. But red carpet worthy? We’re still undecided.
Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana are no strangers to the soccer field — or to its locker room, for that matter — but until now, they’d only made clothes for Italian athletics franchises. But WWD reports that the design duo has signed a three-year contract to outfit England’s Chelsea football club.
Did you think Chanel Iman was the only person whose name came from fashion? Actually, we kinda did, too. Inventive baby names inspired by the rag trade after the jump.
Anna Fermanova, a graduate of the Ogle School of Hair, Skin, and Nails in Dallas, is being charged with a felony for attempting to smuggle military rifle scopes to Moscow — by stuffing them in her Uggs.
Female inmates are typically stripped of their vanity needs while serving time, but the L.A. County jail staff is letting inmate of the moment, Lindsay Lohan, hold on to her ultimate beauty accessory: her extensions.
