Adriana Lima is beautiful. No, really — she’s one of the most stunning women in the world, and according to people who have actually sat in front of her, she’s pretty nice too. And now we know what she looks like in glittery body paint, dressed up like a Tim Burton character.
With over 13,000 cabs in New York City, you wouldn’t think most people would actually come to blows over the handy yellow transports. But most people aren’t Sports Illustrated supermodel Jessica White.
We knew that modeling could sometimes be a tough gig, but today we found out that for some models, the cost of actually getting work is rising. Page Six reported today that models who attend Playboy castings in some cities have to pay a $20 registration fee just to get their feet in the door, and a our good friend Andrew Jackson doesn’t necessarily guarantee a spot in Hugh Hefner‘s glossy.
That’s right, folks. MTV‘s The City has been canceled, or so Whitney Port told Ryan Seacrest today.
Olivier Theyskens‘ capsule collection for Theory was so good, Andrew Rosen has decided to keep him around for a bit longer. Or at least that’s what it seemed like this morning when news broke that Theyskens has been hired as the brand’s new artistic director.
Last week, after the New York Post excerpted a diet-focused portion from her profile in the November issue of Vogue, we wondered whether or not Senator Kirsten Gillibrand lost her weight specifically for the magazine. Thankfully, according to our timeline calculations, that wasn’t the case — but that doesn’t mean Vogue wouldn’t have been ecstatic if it were. While the profile is lengthy and certainly not lacking in meat, it also dedicates about two paragraphs too many to Gillibrand’s so-called transformation.
Earlier this year, Tavi — everyone’s favorite
child teenage style blogger — attended Dior‘s spring couture show. She infamously wore a huge Stephen Jones bow in the front row, and was actually treated to a tour of Dior HQ which she chronicled in Pop. Tavi even got to hang with John! We’re so jealous.
A recent study of the amount of web traffic driven by 20 luxury labels placed Coach ahead of the pack, with 39 percent of total online market share. But when Luxury Daily, a luxury marketing news site, reported on the study, it cited Gucci and Burberry as the luxury brands that dominated the group.
For a couple that generally likes to be all up in our grills, Katy Perry and Russell Brand kept their wedding details uncharacteristically under wraps. The nuptials went down in India on Saturday, and we obviously want to know what everyone wore. Join us on this journey of discovery!
In the fall of 1975, a 26-year-old Anna Wintour was hired as a junior editor at Harper’s Bazaar. Nine months later, she was fired. And a few months after that, she walked into the offices of Penthouse Publications and began her new job as a fashion editor.
If any of you were still worried that there was going to be some kind of all-out street fight between the editors at Style.com and the people who manage the newly minted Vogue.com, you can now rest easy. Style.com is making a move from Conde Nast Digital to the Fairchild Fashion Group.
We admit it — we have a little case of the Fever. Bieber Fever. Don’t blame us! We work on the internet! And “Baby” is pure pop perfection! And that hair! We’re certainly not the only ones who feel this way (nor are we the only ones over the age of 12 who feel this way). But Justin Bieber‘s takeover of the beauty industry must be stopped. Now.
Stefano Tonchi‘s recently revamped W magazine has just dropped its third issue, and already one newly hired staffer is departing. Jody Quon, who was only hired as W’s creative director in April, has resigned under some very interesting circumstances.
Knockoffs in fashion aren’t exactly a new trick, but we were a little surprised this morning when we found photos of a Harry Potter movie costume that looks a lot (and we mean a lot) like one of the late Alexander McQueen‘s designs.
We’ve always had a little bit of a soft spot for Jenny McCarthy. She’s a sassy woman who’s not afraid to speak her mind and while those now iconic on-the-toilet Candies ads might have been regrettable, she totally made up for it with the hilarious story she told on Chelsea Lately last week.
We were sad to announce that Kate Moss‘s fall collection for Topshop would be her last full-range collection for the brand (though she may collaborate on a line with Chloe Green, daughter of Topshop CEO Philip Green). The clothes will be in stores November 2nd, but we have a sneak peek for you!
Last night’s Carousel of Hope gala in LA was an excuse for celebs to turn on the glamour — gowns, baubles and all. Jennifer Lopez and Paris Hilton opted for light-colored dresses with trains, while Halle Berry went red on the red carpet. Check out their looks and tell us who’s your favorite!
When it comes to fashion conglomerates, Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy and Gucci Group are boss. LVMH lays claim to Fendi, Givenchy and Marc Jacobs (among others), while Gucci owns Yves Saint Laurent, Balenciaga, Alexander McQueen and more. And now LVMH has added another horse to their fashion stable: Hermès.
This week was officially the week of Willow. It was also the week that Kanye‘s diamond teeth mystery was solved, Kate Moss kicked a journalist and PETA hated on Michelle Obama. Terry Richardson took some porny pics (yawn), and Anna Dello Russo continued to be awesome.
Last night Kanye debuted his short film “Runaway”, and we loved it. We may be unabashed ‘Ye fans, but this was objectively a beautiful little video. When the credits rolled, it was revealed that Phillip Lim collaborated on the wardrobe with noted theater costumer Martin Izquierdo and we loved it even more.
