Last night, Sarah Palin joined Greta van Susteren to talk politics, President Obama, and “lies, damn lies.” While there, she also debuted what appears to be a new and crisp white jacket. Which begs the question: is it just us, or is Palin wearing what may be the largest lapels ever seen on cable news?
If you were neither scared of nor creeped out by international diva supermodel Naomi Campbell before this morning, please prepare to be so affected.
Nadya Suleman, the woman the world has come to know as the Octomom, hosted a yard sale at her California home this weekend. But unlike most yardsales featuring unused kitchenwares and hampers full of Beanie Babies, Suleman sold off her used underwear and bathing suits. Which, ew.
When we were Willow Smith‘s age, we had a cool older friend. She was 12 (almost a teenager!), and we idolized her and her Steve Madden platforms. Willow Smith also has a cool older friend. Her name is Naomi Campbell.
Numero’s issue #117 features an editorial starring fair-skinned and typically tow-headed model Constance Jablonski — except, in this case, she’s wearing afro wigs that vary in shades from chocolate brown to blonde and her skin has been decidedly bronzed, if not entirely darkened. The most eye-catching accessory in the shoot might be her co-star: a young, diaper-swaddled black child.
Celebrities are pretty much a front row staple at any fashion show, but only the biggest names in fashion can guarantee A-list faces — as opposed those most commonly seen on the CW. Roberto Cavalli is one of those names. Elisabetta Canalis, Heidi Klum, Leona Lewis, Rachel Bilson, and Taylor Swift all turned up and out in Milan to see what Cavalli had in store for his spring collection. But who was best dressed?
We spend a lot of time waffling between who we love more: Meryl Streep or Helen Mirren. But while Streep certainly reminds us of that fictional, artsy aunt who takes you to fabulous wine parties when your boyfriend dumps you, Helen Mirren is like a saucy fairy godmother, with whom you share cigarettes and booze and all your secrets. Which might be why we take any and all of her sartorial advice to heart.
Back in June we reported that the FBI was intent on auctioning off all the jewelry that scumbag con artist Raffaello Follieri bought for his then-girlfriend Anne Hathaway. The auction is currently live, and anyone can get his or her starstruck hands on the glorious bounty of jewels that Follieri bought Hathaway before he was sent to prison. But instead of the heavy influx of money we expected Hathaway’s jewels to get, it turns out that bulk of the money is being thrown at Follieri’s Audemars Piguet collection.
A 24-year-old model accused hair stylist Shawn Mount of sexually assaulting her in a hotel room during London Fashion Week. The New York Post reports that Shawn, husband to model Heidi Mount (the current face of Chanel, pictured above), was arrested but not charged in relation to the assault. Mount was released on bail so that he could work backstage at Milan Fashion Week.
It’s the moment you’ve all been waiting for: you can now officially watch Kate Moss throw diamonds at you in slow motion (and then cover your ears when said diamonds explode to a soundtrack of human shrieking.)
Fashion’s most interesting (and profitable!) relationship may be between a 24-year-old pop superstar and a 76-year-old iconic designer. And they’ve never even met.
New York’s now-famous retail act, The Bedbugs, have decided that specialty stores like Nike, Victoria’s Secret, Hollister and Abercrombie and Fitch were too small time. In order to bring their message of intense creepy-crawliness to the world, the bugs have started making appearances at Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s.
Just a couple days ago we mused about Lauren Conrad‘s latest foray into reality TV. The Laguna Beach and Hills alum played coy, but we had a few ideas about what this show could possibly be about. Looks like we were right (see item #4, thankyouverymuch)! Conrad’s new show will be about fashion, people!
Claudia Schiffer started a four-month break after the birthing and naming her daughter in May. And now, the model says she’s ready to get back in the game. But when you’ve played the game so well and for so long and won so many of its prizes it can get a little boring. Which is why Schiffer wants to start a clothing line.
Katy Perry dropped by the SNL’s Bronx Beat talk show sketch this weekend to make a little light of all the hullabaloo surrounding her cleavage-filled segment on Sesame Street. Wearing a tight, red, and almost impossibly small t-shirt emblazoned with Elmo’s face, Perry played the part of a young neighborhood teen whose recent, erm, growth spurt was causing some trouble down at the local library.
Admittedly, we don’t look our best when we travel. We generally opt for comfort (read: no heels, please), and more often than not come off the plane looking a little less than fresh (one day we’ll fly first class, we tell ya!). A week or so ago we came across some amazing pictures of Lady Gaga at LAX, and ever since we’ve been thinking a lot about airport fashion.
This weekend WSJ (the Wall Street Journal‘s magazine) takes a look at UGG Australia. In addition to providing some interesting company history and a handy real Ugg v. fake Ugg guide, WSJ also gives us the most adorable video of the week: SHEEPS IN UGGS. OMG.
Willow Smith is way cooler than we will ever be. Willow Smith has a ridiculous sense of personal style that has taken a decade to cultivate. Willow Smith is 10 years old. And it’s no surprise that she has been making the rounds at Milan Fashion Week, taking in shows for Dolce & Gabbana, Emporio Armani and Versace.
Fashion shows comes in all sorts of shapes and sizes. While fashion weeks happen in cities all over the globe, aspiring designers dream of showing in one of the big four: New York, London, Milan or Paris. And let us tell you — that is no easy feat. Recognizing this (and also owing to the popularity of street fashion), Paris’s Galleries Lafayette department store decided to put on what could be the world’s biggest fashion show.
While other designers became increasingly obsessed with minimalism this season, Raf Simons joined the ranks of Miuccia Prada and explored his own brand of maximalism for his spring/summer 2011 collection for Jil Sander.
