One sure-fire way to get a standing ovation at a runway show? Make sure your guests can’t sit down.
Most retailers, when they realize they’ve made a reasonable customer angry, do their best to rectify the situation. Gasp Jeans, however, is not most retailers. When a recent shopper complained that one of their salespeople criticized her weight and basically drove her out of the store, Gasp responded by publicly mocking her in the most ill-advised and thoroughly insulting response letter we’ve ever read.
Things we cannot wait to see pictures of: Andrej Pejic meeting Queen Elizabeth II!
He may be one of the nicest people we’ve ever sat on a stoop and smoked with, but being friendly hasn’t made Nicola Formichetti an acclaimed designer. In fact, his Mugler women’s show in Paris yesterday has gotten some of the most lackluster reviews we’ve seen all fashion month.
We love ourselves a little Taylor Swift around these parts, but why are perfume commercials always so bad?
Lady Gaga is really serious about this trademark stuff. First she filed suit against one of her biggest fansites for registering LadyGaga.org, and now she’s going after a marketing firm that is trying to use her name to sell jewelry and makeup.
We thought we were doing a good job of making fun of Toddlers & Tiaras, but our righteous indignation about the TLC show pales in comparison to this parody, in which lost but not forgotten Disney lady Ashley Tisdale shows us what lies ahead for the pageant contestants.
Carine Roitfeld just can’t quit magazining. The former Vogue Paris editor is plunging into the glossy world once more, this time on her own terms.
Earlier today, Scott Schuman denounced superstar blogger Tavi Gevinson as a pathetic wannabe who “can talk about art and stuff only in an abstract way.” We don’t now if that retort has anything to do with why her essay about the male gaze, a major concept in contemporary art that Gevinson comes into contact with on the daily, is so carefully and poignantly worded, but we can say one thing is certain: Tavi’s opinions are anything but juvenile.
We’ve got pretty tough stomachs here at Styleite, but there’s one thing we’ve seen today kinda makes us want to vomit. Specifically? The dress British designer Rachel Freire made of over 3,000 cow nipples and plans to show at Paris Fashion Week.
This is one of those things that’s as disturbing as it is not surprising. A new study has found that what you wear can influence how people think of your race. Put another way, people are more likely to percieve better dressed people as white and poorly dressed people as Black.
Today Scott Schuman gave an interview that blew our minds in a really horrible way, and proved that the man behind The Sartorialist is cripplingly out of touch.
Kanye will (potentially) set the fashion world ablaze with his DEBUT FASHIONZ on Saturday, so it’s time for you to get schooled on all the madness.
Previously: there was Kim Kardashian, there was a doula, and there was the sibling rivalry between Joey Maalouf and Jeremiah Brent. This week: there is a new house.
We’re starting to wonder if J.C. Penney is actively courting bad press. Hot on the heels of their “I’m Too Pretty To Do Homework” shirt debacle, the mass market retailer launched a new campaign that uses Phoebe Cates‘ iconic red bathing suit scene from Fast Times At Ridgemont High to sell men’s dress shirts. Wait, what?
They say the clothes make the man, so what can we say about a guy who wears a hot (and we mean hot) pink necktie to make a very important speech? That’s exactly what New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who may or may not be seeking the Republican nomination for president, did last night when he made a speech at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library
Lady suits can be a hard thing to pull off, mostly because a whole lot of lady suits aren’t cut right for lady wearers, or said lady wearers don’t style them correctly. At last night’s Ides of March premiere, Evan Rachel Wood showed us how a lady suit (slash tux!) should be worn.
Less than thirty minutes after we confirmed that Andre Leon Talley was indeed leaving America’s Next Top Model, publicist turned reality star turned self-help guru Kelly Cutrone has announced that she will be taking his seat on the judges panel.
