Unlike a certain Cruise, celeb-heir Lourdes Leon has managed to keep a pretty low profile. But now that Madonna‘s eldest is all of 13 and has a clothing line to promote, it seems mom is finally letting little Lola loose.
We’ve always known those Australians were ahead — about 20 time zones or so. But if the election of the nation’s first female (and red-headed!) Prime Minister wasn’t progressive enough for you, it seems they’ve gone and beat us all to the collective punch again.
Pardon us for beating a dead horse — erm, zebra — but when we discovered these shots from Mischa Barton‘s latest modeling effort we couldn’t help but blow our photoshop vuvuzela. Barton appears in a new campaign for German fashion designer Philipp Plein and no matter your opinion of the actress and her career, the images are pretty startling.
In all honesty, we’re on the fence about this one. On the one hand, they can look cute and as photo-blogger Garance Dore points out, virtually guarantee a double take (and possibly a whistle.) On the other, visible cheek-age has a little too much in common with lower back tattoos, Dov Charney, and spaghetti strap tank tops. But no need to bum out, to help you navigate this fraught path — check out our completely unscientific short-short score card.
Attendees at today’s Victor and Rolf show are in for a little surprise. Word is Elly Jackson, a.k.a. female pop sensation La Roux, will be popping by the all boys affair to take her first turn down runway
We’ve never really thought of the New York Times as a bully. Stubborn and crotchety, definitely. But seems a run of Jean-Luc Godard-inspired tees have the old Grey Lady doing more than just shaking her cane and yelling at the kids to get off her yard.
In all honesty, it doesn’t take much to make a male model look good. A loin cloth usually works. But nonetheless, menswear designers (for the most part anyways) have overwhelmingly stuck to the straight and narrowly tailored. You know: suit, tie, solids, yawn. But this season, Milan got a little wacky. In fact, between all the meggings (male leggings), man-dals (with and without socks), and some body jewelry that would have made a “Faith” era George Michael blush, we started to wonder what was going on and, more importantly, if “Blue Steel” was strong enough to withstand it.
No matter the size or shape, we’re always up for stylish solutions to problems we didn’t think could ever be solved. To whit: how to dress a body that is changing faster than a model backstage at a runway show. Well, forget spending money on something you’ll probably never fit into again. Instead, in brilliant fashio-vations comes Rent Maternity Wear, a boutique that allows expectant moms to be as flaky and non-committal as the aforementioned twenty something and offers the opportunity to snap up a dress and send it back. Also: they sell Christian Siriano!
One of the reasons we go bananas for Anne Hathaway is that despite her pristine taste in fashion, she accidentally dated a con-man for a few years and thereby made us feel better about all of our romantic foibles. But, while she long ago exited the relationship and left her unsavory consort, swindler cum-social climber Raffaello Follieri to face charges, unfortunately all doesn’t seem to be in the past.
The suit-loving lawyers at Fendi and parent company LVMH have another hefty payday on the way. According to WWD, Fendi has just settled a lawsuit against the former Filene’s Basement for $2.5 million after claiming the off-market retailer illegally sold counterfeit products.
Come hell, or high baggage fee, women will forever find a way to pack more than they need — lest they leave their favorite pair of shoes home alone and have a McCaulay Culkin moment in the mirror. Well, in good news for all those designers right now shilling retail-friendly resort wares, a new poll finds that not only do we tend to overpack for a trip, but we also overspend.
Can’t say we ever thought we’d see the day when “the goggle” made a comeback… But it seems our favorite hip hop-loving virgin Kenny might have just finally scored himself a honey, er, homey? Yes, that is Lily Cole. And yes, it appears she is wearing orange-colored goggles with neither a lap pool nor a ski slope in sight.
With Dress Code gate barreling down, Dov Charney has had a pretty rough week. Well if he’s looking for someone to commiserate with, he might just find a sounding board in Scott Schertzer–mayor of Mansfield, Ohio.
For sure, an MTV reality television show can be a unique launching pad for things like Milk Mustache campaigns and fake magazine jobs, even a clothing line. So we were a little taken aback when Ali “the too skinny model” from the first season of “The City,” decided to pack up her compelling plot line and strike out on her own.
Since we first got word that Rick Owens–designer of all things favored by People’s Rev staffer Andrew Mukamal, would be transforming New York City’s Salon 94 for a furniture exhibit we’ve been musing on how his at times brutal aesthetic would translate to the bedroom.
Of course while we try our best to steer clear of anything approaching a Croc, leave it to Moschino to remind us all that is cute about jelly shoes. Plasticly perfect for tromping around in come summer the brightly hued ballerinas are made entirely from interwoven recycled plastic, the result of an ongoing partnership with Kartell.
It’s hard to tire of Kelly Cutrone. Of course she often treads dangerously close to over exposure, but when it comes down to it, behind the mirrored frames and all black get-ups, the woman/force de PR knows a whole lot.
They say soccer is the world’s most beautiful game, and while the shirtless snaps of all it’s hard-bodied strikers definitely make a good case, it wasn’t until we stumbled across the pages of Sepp Magazine that we were ready to sound our vuvuzela. Talk about pitch perfect.
Break out your Bik’s ladies, because in a move to remove some of those mousey restrictions, Disney recently announced that it’s female employees will have the right to bare legs.
In case you missed it, designer cum reality TV judge Julien Macdonald created a mini stir when he took it upon himself to promote the new UK version of Top Model by slamming plus sized models. In a recent interview Macdonald said he planned to take his duties as one of the show’s scouts seriously–meaning [...]
