Today in StyleDish: Gisele Bundchen is apparently so flawless the editors of Brazillian Vogue just couldn’t settle on one cover photo so they went with five. Also, Kelly Osbourne poses for Madonna’s fashion line, Prince Harry’s rumored girlfriend was on a curling iron box, mystery street artist Banksy is attending Kate Moss’s Wedding (wait so Kate Moss knows who Banksy really is?), and an awesome chance to meet Rachel Zoe and win a $2500 Neiman Marcus shopping spree.
Earlier today, Kate Middleton took off from London in a form-fitting, navy shift dress by Roland Mouret. And while most of us would have landed six hours later looking wrinkled, tired, and decidedly disheveled, the Duchess emerged from the plane looking freshly styled in a new dress and hairdo.
Filed under things that aren’t fair: This is what 38-year-old mother of two Gwyneth Paltrow looks like naked. We’ll let you catch your breath before you read the rest of the post.
You guys, Prince Harry lied to us! A few days ago he told newspapers that he’s 100 percent single and absolutely not dating anyone, including Duchess Catherine‘s little sister Pippa Middleton. Well, it turns out that’s not exactly true — according to people who say they’re in the know, he’s dating a young lingerie and swimwear model named Florence Brudenell-Bruce.
Honestly, everything about Justin Bieber’s fragrance for the ladies is hilarious. It’s called Someday, which is clever but pretty heavy handed, Bieber has no idea why he made it, and, in addition to the fact that the bottle looks just like Marc Jacobs’ Lola scent, it’s also a little a little yoni-ish. (What?) So when we saw that Jimmy Fallon had spoofed Bieber’s scented money-making scheme, we thought: too easy.
Try this on for size. A group of Canadian friends were so excited over the royal visit coinciding with the Calgary rodeo festival this weekend that they decided to give the british fascinator a western twist.
Prince William and Kate Middleton officially departed for their Canadian tour this morning wearing a pair of matching suits. Okay, so they’re not identical, but they’re both navy! And though certainly classy, also kind of boring. More interesting, however, is the fact that Middleton appears to be following in Michelle Obama’s footsteps and paying sartorial homage to her country of destination.
Oh, Toddlers and Tiaras. Thank you for being a veritable goldmine of information on how not to raise well-adjusted, self confident children. In a new episode, a woman who we can only describe as a step down from Botox Mom explains that she bleaches her children’s teeth every week, no matter how much they protest, even when they’re not about to compete.
Like any good entrepreneur, Victoria Beckham is trying to expand her brand to reach as many people as possible. Her solution? Start a lower-priced line of dresses, so people who can’t shell out $1,400 or more for her main collection have the option of spending $550 to $900 on a dress from Victoria by Victoria Beckham. Also? The collection is inspired by Emily the Strange, that black and white cartoon of a sulky, badass girl who wanders around with cats.
What does the modern “well traveled heiress” wear to lounge around her mansion during the summer? That’s the question Salvatore Ferragamo was trying to answer last night when it presented its resort collection in New York.
If you’ve ever laid awake at night, wondering what it would look like if someone applied an entire year’s worth of makeup in a single sitting, well, wonder no longer. Nowness, along with directors Lernert & Sander, teamed up with a pair of makeup artists to painstakingly apply 365 layers of foundation, blush, lip gloss, and cream eyeshadow on model Hannelore Knuts‘s face in a single and what was presumably very, very, very long day.
After a yearlong absence from the glossy magazine business, Vogue Russia‘s founding editor Aliona Doletskaya has just landed a job as editor of the newly minted Russian and German editions of Interview magazine. Doletskaya’s first issue for the Russian market will be on newsstands at the end of the year, with German issues following in early 2012.
There are a few completely impractical items in today’s StyleDish you may want to pick up for yourself, including Lady Gaga-esque lingerie made of mirror shards and a pair of 8-inch Louboutins made to look like ballerina toes. Comfy! Also in today’s news: Nigel Barker talks about what makes Tyra Banks smize, Jason Wu shares his favorite getaway and Betsey Johnson’s assistant dishes on the crazy things she’s had to do for her job.
When we learned Naomi Campbell was set to appear in Givenchy’s fall campaign, we were curious. When we heard last week that she’d be roaring in the ads and looking like a “dark ’50s pinup girl”, we just got downright excited. So here it is, the first look at Givenchy’s fall campaign, but really, who’s looking at the clothes?
We were totally intrigued when we saw pictures of Kate wearing an engraved charm bracelet this weekend. Who gave it to her, we asked. What does the C stand for, we pondered. Now we have answers, people!
A lot of people have called rocker and fashion-lover Courtney Love a lot of things, and, well, thief is one of them. So it didn’t really come as any surprise to us when news broke last night that Love had stolen photographer David LaChapelle‘s car.
The 4th of July weekend is right around the corner, meaning that beach fiestas and firework festivities are only a few days away. Before you can frolic away to your cocktail-sipping fantasies, though, you have to do one thing: pack.
While we were busy going gaga over the plus-sized model issue of Vogue Italia a few weeks ago, a bona fide plus-size model was busy being analytical about it. Velvet D’Amour, an American model who’s walked for Jean Paul Gaultier and John Galliano, spoke pretty frankly about the implications of the issue. And to hear her tell it, those lovely Steven Meisel photos were pretty, but not revolutionary.
Looks like Gwyneth Paltrow will be bringing her eye for fashion to a Topshop near you! The actress/singer/cook/blogger had dinner with Sir Philip Green, head of the British clothing store, in London last night.
Today our friends over at Mediaite alerted us to the fact that Bristol Palin thinks Michele Bachmann is totally ripping off her mom’s style. Um, okay.
