Happy Friday, everyone! Kick off your weekend with some seriously sick (and cheap!) nail art, Adam Lambert’s thoughts on John Galliano (you know you care), a comprehensive timeline of every one of Lindsay Lohan‘s fashion dalliances, and the way weird Darth Vader hats in Balenciaga’s spring show.
Because in our world there is no such thing as too much Kanye West news, we’ve got even more details about his upcoming collection which is scheduled to bow in Paris on Saturday night. Most sensationally: the absolutely insane guestlist. Most fashion-y: the high profile designer he’s got working on his shoes.
Throughout our history, angry citizens have taken to the streets to make their voices heard, and they’ve done so in coats and ties, white gloves and yard after yard of silk.
While fashion media awaits Dior’s long overdue announcement of John Galliano‘s replacement, the storied French house bowed its Spring 2012 collection today at the hands of Galliano’s longtime assistant Bill Gaytten. And though we have some thoughts on the clothing, we’ll get to that part in a minute. Because the foremost takeaway from this collection was surely that Karlie Kloss closed the show with her bare butt proudly on display.
Before he became Zombie Boy, Rick Genest was just a white Canadian guy with no tattoos. And for those of us who weren’t around to see his skin unadorned, photographer Matthew Lyn gave us a glimpse at what he might have looked like for Schön magazine.
Here in New York, vast swarms of people have literally been occupying Wall Street in protest against what they believe our nation’s biggest financial institutions have willing done to America’s economy. And they’re starting to get more attention for what they wear than what they’re saying.
This week, the designers (once again) look to the ’70s for inspiration. Only this time, there’s missing money, tears from Tim Gunn, and Olivia Palermo.
So this is an interesting image. Normally regal-looking First Lady Michelle Obama went shopping in Alexandria, VA yesterday. But she didn’t go to any fancy boutiques or even to a big department store. Instead, she spent some time walking up and down the aisles at one of our favorite mass-brand markets.
If any of you are still deciding whether or not to take Kanye West’s design debut seriously, his show invite, which hit the web early this morning, just put the capital F in Fashion.
You know how they say some celebrities are big in Japan? Well, Paris Hilton is more famous in India than she ever was in the United States. The heiress is so big in Mumbai that she’s not just making appearances at parties there. She’s opening up brick-and-mortar Paris Hilton-branded stores.
Gisele Bundchen may be well on her way to becoming the world’s first billionaire supermodel, but that doesn’t mean she’s immune to controversy. In fact, Bundchen is currently under fire for a lingerie campaign currently airing in her home country of Brazil.
Yesterday Kate Middleton made an appearance at The Royal Marsden Cancer Center — but don’t worry, the duchess wasn’t there for an oncological consultation. Instead, Kate got all dressed up for a tour of the hospital, and she and Prince William chatted with some of its young patients.
Today we got sent numerous links to a New York Times article about independent fashion bloggers making serious amounts of cash. In fact, three separate articles published this month are telling the world what we already knew: these bloggers are making a whole lot of dough through the help of agents. But is the bubble ready to burst?
The Gap is selling a shirt that’s causing more family feuds than Richard Dawson, primarily because it is emblazoned with the insignia of the Wu Tang Clan. Which, like, what? Also in today’s StyleDish, Tom Ford playing with a naked woman’s butt and male politicians get Photoshopped into respectability for a change. Dig in!
With two days to go, Kanye is doing all sorts of wild and crazy things to ready his first womenswear collection. He even went to a fabric store!

Has Tom Ford fallen from grace? While early reviews of his show were mixed, at worst, one critic has stepped up to the proverbial bat and called the whole thing a “slowly unfolding nightmare.” Oh, and it gets so much worse.
