Another day, another StyleDish, another small Polish magazine doing a Carine Roitfeld-inspired photoshoot. We’ve also got a $3000 shopping spree, a fascinating look at why the color red makes you hungry, and the one item Simon Doonan wishes he hadn’t purchased. And yes, it will surprise you.
Radio host Rush Limbaugh is many things, but arbiter of fashion isn’t one of the bullet points on his LinkedIn Profile. So you can imagine how surprised we were this weekend when our sister site Mediaite wrote a post about Limbaugh commenting on first lady Michelle Obama‘s fashion clout. Suffice it to say, he got it wrong.
Poor Shawn. He just wanted to wear a tiny hat on Halloween. Instead of attaching said tiny hat to his head via an elastic strap, he decided to glue it on. With super glue. Shawn, this was not a good idea.
Confidentiality agreements suck, but they are sort of legally binding. That’s why actor/model/fashion commentator/designer/singer Kelly Osbourne can’t talk about the jewelry collection she’s working on. So we’re going to talk about it for her.
There is only one man in the world who can count both Pope John Paul II and Lady Gaga among those who have donned his duds. That man is Jean-Charles de Castelbajac. He’s also had a line called Jesus Jeans and produced a series of logoed paintings. His current project is a rock musical. Many hats, people, many hats.
Over the weekend, American Apparel founder Dov Charney gave his flailing clothing company a much needed shot in the arm by way of trading a couple million dollars for a few million shares of stock. Because he’s totally not going to need that money for anything else.
Jessica Simpson is a powerful woman. Not only does she have the ability to convince normally sane people that she would actually design a line of heeled swim flippers, her Jessica Simpson Collection empire has projected $1 billion in sales for 2012 — which probably explains why she’s the subject of eight separate stories in today’s issue of Women’s Wear Daily.
We think it’s great that there are so many of you who are so passionate about the fashion industry, we’re a lot less excited that some of you choose to express that passion by way of saying really nasty things. For example, we know the things John Galliano said in that now-infamous video are vile, but commenting that the man commit suicide to make up for having said those things doesn’t make you a better person. It just makes you look evil. It also gets your comment deleted.
This is a video of a man who made a quilt from 58 pairs of panties! And while that is an incredibly strange and disconcerting sentence, there are so many things we love about this panty quilt video! Let’s count them down!
It’s no secret that Katy Perry‘s evangelical Christian preacher mother doesn’t like her daughter’s skimpy outfits and racy lyrics (or her foulmouthed husband, Russell Brand). But she dislikes them so intensely that now she’s writing a book about how intensely she dislikes them.
Today’s StyleDish gifts us with a profile of the Lauder family, a breakdown of Catherine Deneuve‘s looks, and Rush Limbaugh‘s thoughts on Michelle Obama‘s style (really!).
In her most recent interview with Remix Magazine, Emma Watson has lots of things to say. And many of them have to do with fashion!
From all that we’ve seen (and we’ve seen a lot), Kate Middleton and Prince William are a really, really lovely couple. Remember that cute engagement interview? In the latest bit of royal wedding news, we now know all about Kate’s dress! KIDDING. We still know pretty much nothing. But we do know all about their wedding cakes! Yes, cakes plural! Ugh, we love them even more now.
This week we mourned the loss of Elizabeth Taylor, celebrated the birth of Rachel Zoe‘s son and applauded the philanthropic nature of the royal wedding. We also heard from the likes of Anna Wintour, Tom Ford, and Lady Gaga. Not to mention, we became even more obsessed with Alexander Wang‘s adorable niece.
Chloë’s baaaaaaaaaack! Our favorite Chloë Sevigny spoof, that is, via the latest installment of Drew Droege‘s hilarious video series. The real Chloë has finally watched the fake Chloë, so we wonder if she’s seen this spring-themed clip.
When it comes to Black Swan, everyone wants their proper bit of credit. First costume designer Amy Westcott was upset Rodarte got all the glory after designing seven costumes, and now Natalie Portman‘s body double is refuting claims that the actress did 85% of the dancing in the film. She says it’s more like a measly 5%.
Today’s StyleDish brings unlikely kissing partners, wardrobe wisdom from Edith Head and Chanel‘s new makeup site.
Last month Marc Jacobs announced that it was looking for someone to take over its then Robert Duffy-helmed Twitter account. The company is still looking for someone to fill the position, and has had an intern tweeting for the time being. That is, until now. Because said intern had a full-on meltdown on the @MarcJacobsIntl account.
