Today’s StyleDish unearths iconic pictures from Hedi Slimane‘s archives, catches up with the Brant brothers and muses about Banksy‘s Oscars ensemble.
This week sure was controversial! John Galliano was accused of anti-Semitism, Beyoncé posed in blackface, Diane von Furstenberg hired an underage model and Justin Bieber cut his hair! Also, Stefano Pilati is not leaving YSL, thank you very much.
As part of an ongoing investigation of the alleged dispute between John Galliano and a French couple, the designer has been ordered to meet with one of his accusers at a Paris police station tomorrow afternoon.
We have this sort of morbid fascination with Sandra Lee, the Food Network personality who is also girlfriend-in-chief of the state of New York. Lee, who’s dating New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, got famous for coming up with crazy offensive recipes for things like Kwanzaa Cake, decorating all of her dinner parties to within an inch of their lives and wearing lots and lots of white clothing.
Because there’s nothing we love more than spending our Sunday liveblogging a red carpet event with you guys, we’ve got big plans for the upcoming 82nd Annual Academy Awards. Join us, as we watch Natalie Portman and Rachel Zoe go head to head in the battle of the baby bumps, see Ryan Seacrest get (re)snubbed by Brangelina, and keep a live tally of how many dresses each designer has walk down Hollywood’s most watched 300 yards of fabric.
We knew Terry Richardson “hung out” with the likes of Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber, but a peek at his blog has alerted us to the fact that he’s recently been in the company of someone way more surprising: Monica Lewinsky.
In today’s StyleDish, we learn that Kim Kardashian will be Armenian Cosmo‘s first cover girl. To commemorate this occasion, we dug up this super awkward picture of Kim, Paris Hilton and Nick Cannon dancing. You’re welcome, Kim! Also of note: Alexa Chung is totally evil and Salvatore Ferragamo is livestreaming tomorrow’s runway show.
We like purses as much as the next fashion-obsessed blog, but a bag that costs $3.8 million is just not something we can get behind. Of course, the “1001 Nights Diamond Purse” made by Mouawad isn’t necessarily meant for consumption, so much as it is a way to say, “Hey, we made the world’s most expensive handbag! The Guinness World Records people say so!”
With all of the drama surrounding magazine spreads that make little girls look like mature women, it’s refreshing to see a fashion mag feature an age-appropriate editorial. While Lindsey Wixson and Hailey Clauson are quite a bit older than the Vogue Paris kids, they are still only 16 and 15, respectively. Vogue China appears to understand that.
Are there two people better suited to talk about life, food and fashion than former model/current media mogul Martha Stewart and Vogue contributing editor Andre Leon Talley? No, no there are not.
Late designer Alexander McQueen is the subject of a documentary airing on British television tonight called, “McQueen and I,” and while the film focuses on his infamous relationship with Isabella Blow, it also reveals some colorful and not exactly positive details about the designer, his interpersonal skills, and his work ethic.
Today’s StyleDish answers the question everyone in the fashion industry has been asking all day: What does Franca Sozzani think about the whole John Galliano kerfuffle? Also, Natalie Portman‘s awesome $50 red carpet dress, and a few ways to make the ladies at The Gloss fall in love with you.
Tory Burch has been a successful brand from the get-go, but nothing propelled the NYC-based label to fame so much as those incredibly popular logo-buckled flats which, while almost frustratingly ubiquitous, were that way for a reason: they’re cute, comfortable, and go with almost anything. However, for every logo-loving craze, there’s a corresponding backlash — and in this case, some people got a little tired of wearing what could so obviously be identified as the same shoe as everyone else. Not any more!
The magazine that convinced singer Beyonce Knowles to paint her skin a darker shade of brown for a photo shoot says she wasn’t in blackface, but in ritualistic African face covering. Do you think we buy that explanation? Read on to find out.
est you thought the original report was a rumor, Lady Gaga‘s perfume will indeed smell — or at least evoke the smell — of semen and blood. The Fame Monster confirmed rumors of her body fluid-inspired scent to Australian radio hosts Kyle and Jackie O, saying, “I wanted to extract the feeling and sense of blood and semen from molecular structures.” Wait, what?
Besides being a makeup addict, I also happen to be a jewelry addict. That whole Coco Chanel “take one accessory off before you leave the house” adage? Um, no thanks. Though I layer piece upon shiny piece (Iris is my homegirl, after all), even just one really great item can transform an outfit from blah to bomb. And you want to look all bomb, don’t you? This is why I’m going to teach you how to curate a super cool jewelry collection.
Since no two versions of the same story are ever going to be exactly the same, some blogs are now reporting that the initial details of the John Galliano arrest story are all wrong. In fact, a new eyewitness account says that the Dior designer didn’t assault anyone, wasn’t arrested, and didn’t even use an anti-Semitic slur.
We thought Kirsten Dunst‘s ad for Bulgari‘s Mon Jasmin Noir would be pretty standard as far as fragrance ads go. Beautiful person posing with a bottle of perfume in some state of dishabille. It’s a pretty straightforward formula, but photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott saw fit to muck it up with a lion.
