Of Kanye‘s many fashion obsessions — Lanvin, Phillip Lim, models — Mr. T is by far the oddest. Why is Mr. T a style influence for a man who loves fashion so much he said it breaks his heart? We just don’t know. This fall Yeezy starting donning some serious Mr. T bling, but he took it up a notch at yesterday’s Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
We’re not quite sure why, but this picture of the Jacobs by Marc Jacobs for Marc by Marc Jacobs in collaboration with Marc Jacobs for Marc by Marc Jacobs (say that five times fast) tote has been making the rounds this week. Marc‘s cheeky nod to vapid logo-loving is one of the reasons we adore him, but other labels (including his own Louis Vuitton) are a bit more earnest in their excessive branding.
Once upon a time (actually in March 2002), a girl who did not know she would one day be a princess put on a see-through dress and sashayed her way down a runway in a fashion show at the University of St. Andrews. That girl was Kate Middleton, and her husband-to-be, Prince William, was sitting front row and whispered to a friend “Kate’s hot!” when she came down the runway. The rest, as they say, is history.
When you do suffer a holiday food stain (because you will, or might already have done so during Thanksgiving), it might behoove you to follow a few tips from our friend Gwen Whiting, one of the co-founders of J.Crew‘s favorite line of detergents The Laundress. For all the fancy unguents and lotions she sells to help clothes shine like new, Whiting has a refreshingly straightforward (and emotionally mature) approach to removing even the worst kinds of stains.
In this morning’s tryptophan-induced grogginess, we weren’t exactly sure why we were seeing news of a Tom Ford for H&M collection in our newsfeed. But it was there, so our hearts started beating faster as we dreamed and fantasized about what such a collaboration might look like, or what it might cost. And then we clicked.
Besides being a day of delicious food, family fights, and — for most of America — football, Thanksgiving is also a day of giving thanks. And while you’re supposed to be offering your gratitude to heartfelt things, like family (even though they fight), friends, and the turkey for being so delicious, we’ve also found there’s so shortage of fashionable things for which we would like to offer the most passionate and heartfelt of thanks: a slideshow!
Everything you need to know about food, fashion, and Thanksgiving!
You know who celebrates Thanksgiving? Anna Wintour! Yes, homegirl is an American citizen. And this year she wanted to teach her oh-so-Euro friend Karl how to celebrate the holiday in style. Join us as we regale you with the true tale of Karl Lagerfeld’s very first Thanksgiving.
Mascara ads have always mystified us. Can the product in question really give you such exaggerated results without looking clumpy and gross? Rimmel has proven that no, their mascara can’t. But they’d like you to think otherwise, which is why they outfitted Georgia May Jagger in a lush pair of falsies for their most recent advertising campaign.
Sports Illustrated model Irina Shayk is reportedly up in arms over her cover and spread for the December issue of GQ Spain. According to a press release sent out by ARC NY Talent PR — which just so happens to be Marc Jacobs‘ ex Lorenzo Martone’s agency — Shayk posed for the European glossy in varying degrees of undress, but never naked. The resulting 14-page spread features three images of Shayk completely nude — a look she claims was achieved post-production.
Sometimes you just don’t mess with an original. First Mean Girls, and now Minnie Mouse – what is with this week, people? Disney has redesigned the cartoon icon for Forever 21, and the resulting rodent is totally creepy looking.
The fine art of going commando under kilts may soon be going the way of the Dodo. According to the Scottish Tartan Authority — the organization in charge of managing the standards of Highland dress which, yes, exists — wearing a kilt sans underwear is not only unhygienic, it’s not even tradition.
Back in May, Next Management filed a lawsuit against Ford Models, alleging that the rival agency poached three of its models: Karmen Pedaru, Anna Aleksandra Cywinska, and Anna Jagodzinska. Shortly thereafter, Ford sued Next for stealing their bookers (which they allege helps Next consistently poach their models), and now the models themselves are getting in on the lawsuit action by suing Next for stealing their wages.
Manhattan real estate has been known to drive people mad, as the search for that elusive perfect apartment can take a lifetime. It helps when you have plenty of cash to spare, but even then it’s a horribly miserable process. Take Isaac Mizrahi. The super-successful designer found his dream home years ago, but was only able to snatch it up this fall.
Just yesterday, Kim Kardashian and her mother Kris Jenner announced they were partnering with Sketchers Shape-Ups shoes — you know, those funny looking sneakers that are supposed to (but probably won’t) give you a better butt? — an endorsement which some were concerned might be in conflict with a previous deal she had with Reebok. Then, a few hours later, Kardashian dropped by Times Square for the “5th Annual Charmin Restrooms Ribbon Cutting Ceremony.” While we’re not sure what that means, we do know the chances of inter-endorsement conflict are slim.
Nicki Minaj may have a Kanye endorsement, but we still think she’s a second-rate Lady Gaga. Case in point: her new rainbow ‘do. We’re not quite sure what to make of it, but we know it’s no Gaga dye job. In fact, we’re pretty sure it’s a wig. A really bad wig.
Yesterday our hearts were all aflutter after we heard that Karl Lagerfeld would be selling his rumored “masstige” line at Macy’s. UnBeige got the delicious scoop, and it sounded super-legit. Today Macy’s confirmed the rumor, but the collaboration entails something a bit different from what we initially hoped for. Karl is indeed teaming up with Macy’s — but only for a limited edition capsule collection.
There are the many reasons why the launch video for Anna Dello Russo‘s perfume made our day. Kanye is one them.
