Which is about a thousand times nicer than flipping the bird in front of him.
She’s gone from tween fashion blogger to publishing magnate, and now Tavi Gevinson can add voiceover actress to the mix.
The Council of Fashion Designers of America has decided to leave its offices in New York’s Garment District for more space farther downtown. The move has some designers questioning the group’s commitment to the Midtown neighborhood, which has seen declining occupancy by actual producers of clothing over the past few decades.
Beer heiress (yes, that’s what she is for a living) Daphne Guinness is selling her art-filled apartment on Fifth Avenue, and she’s listed it for a whopping $14 million.
Rooney Mara knows how to keep it interesting. The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo’s style-setter outfitted another fashion-forward look while promoting her film in Tokyo. If you fear the statement power of her peplum and ruffled Givenchy top, the outfit’s style elements are still easy to translate into your own wardrobe. We’re loving the clean black-and-white palette and modern accents; emote the same look with a creamy peplum blouse and a pair of slick leather-trimmed pants. A pair of minimalist heels like Rooney’s provide the perfect finish. Feeling inspired? Shop our key pieces to mimic Rooney’s modern elegance.
Boy, Brad Goreski was busy this week! The show made a welcome return to fashion storylines with Brad styling a sheet for Details’s September issue. The premise of the shoot was, according to Brad, “How to incorporate color into your wardrobe without looking like, well, me.” The show tried to make us think that he might not pull it off, as Details editor Andrea Oliveri objected to some of the clothes and had some styling suggestions of her own, but it all just looked like the normal back and forth people have while collaborating on a creative project. Nice try, Bravo! You almost had us.
We were pretty skeptical about that whole Michael Vick going to Fashion Week thing. Well, as it turns out, Vick is not in fact interested in fashion (or fashion shows) at all.
Call us old fashioned, but we expect people to show their elders some respect — especially when the elder in question is Chanel couturier and hardest-working man in fashion Karl Lagerfeld. We don’t know who raised Kristen Stewart, but whoever they are clearly failed to teach her that very important and valuable lesson.
If your feet are feeling timid and less-than-beautiful right now, you probably shouldn’t buy any of Rachel Roy‘s new shoes. The designer says her new collection is not for the faint of heart.
Jason Wu for Target goes on sale Sunday. This is exciting! We’ve seen the collection in pictures and in real life, and it’s one of Target’s most solid collaborations in a long time. But that doesn’t mean you should buy it on eBay right now.
For those of you not familiar with Andy Cohen’s late night talk show Watch What Happens Live (for shame!), our favorite executive-turned-reality-show-host likes to play a game called “Plead The Fifth”, in which guests are forced to answer three titillating questions — and can only “plead the fifth” on one. (It’s how everyone found out Beverly Hills Housewife Brandi Gianville slept with Gerard Butler. Anyway!) Last night, it was Brad Goreski’s turn.
Oh, to be young, rich, thin, gorgeous and wearing a pastel-colored evening gown on a 1940s-inspired cover of Vanity Fair. That’s what’s happening to Rooney Mara, Jennifer Lawrence, Jessica Chastain and a slew of other actresses on the cover of the magazine’s annual Hollywood issue.
Yesterday the British press went wild over a report that Michelle Obama spent $50,000 on lingerie at Agent Provocateur‘s Madison Avenue boutique. We thought the story, which first appeared in the Telegraph, seemed questionable. And now White House Press Secretary Jay Carney has set the record straight.
Also, THE ART OF HATE-READING.
It’s a post for another day, but how painfully awkward is it to watch Giuliana Rancic interview celebrities (and fill dead space) for a non-stop period of 120 minutes? So painfully awkward! If you were smart and perhaps watched on mute, you would have missed the fact that she asked several lady celebs (Sofia Vergara! Elizabeth Banks!) to name their least favorite body parts — on live television. She actually did that! Anyway, the good news is that while Elizabeth Banks was discussing her runners’ feet, Vogue ambassador and cape connoisseur Andre Leon Talley was busy chatting up Melissa McCarthy. Thank goodness!
We’ve always been wary of lotions which purport to turn our skin a different color, mainly because it’s so hard to tell if that color will actually be the color you want and furthermore, who’s to say that color will even look good on you? Also, no matter what anyone says, it never really looks natural. Anyway, this is all a long winded way of saying Christina Aguilera suffered the spray tan faux pas of our nightmares on Saturday — and at Etta James’ funeral, no less.
Last night we were bored to tears by the super lame SAG Awards red carpet. Leave it to Rooney Mara to school everyone, all the way from Japan.
Perfume commercials are always trying to be provocative and sexy to attract consumers, but the new ads for Paco Rabane Black XS seem to be reaching out in a very different way: specifically, to glam rock fans in the early punk era. What else could possibly explain this frenetic new ad, which has everything a young David Bowie could want: Iggy Pop sensuously wrapping himself in an American flag, models licking a Damien Hirst-y jewel-encrusted skull, a couple writhing in money like a couple of proto-punk Scrooge McDucks, etc. It’s as if someone turned Velvet Goldmine into a perfume.
