The 9 Best April Fools’ Day Pranks From Around The Fashion-Sphere
April Fools’ Day, all! Did you manage to get through the day without falling for a prank? We can’t say that we did (thanks a lot, “Google Nose”), but we’re proud to report that we did manage to catch at least a few fibbers in their lies.
That said, there were plenty of pranks to fall for this year, from the less-than-practical
Urban Outfitters Maxi Tube dress to the eye-popping job opening at Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition. See all of the best right here!
1. Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition wants YOU to be their next body paint assistant.
...Leaving many 14-year-old boys gravely disappointed when they found out it was a prank.
2.Birchbox launches 'Birchbox for Boxes'.
Basically, it's the same concept as the Birchbox subscription service you know and love, but instead of cosmetics and skincare, you just get more boxes! They even provide a handy instructional section: 'Fill each box with products, knickknacks, old receipts, and love letters. Or just leave them empty—they’re that awesome!'
3.Complex announces 'the most surprising collaboration of the year': Riccardo Tisci's redesign of MTA uniforms!
Below a series of photos of the pimped-out gear, fictional subway workers extol the 'serious amounts of swag' the designer put into their new duds.
4.Refinery29 is getting it's own drama-filled reality show, everyone!
Except, not really. Or are they?
5.Glamour.com reports on the newest addition to The Real Housewives of New York City will be none other than Rebecca Minkoff.
The designer even gets in on the joke, telling them in a faux-interview that she's thinking of going with, 'I’m a designer, and I rule the New York fashion world' for her opening credits tagline.
6.Urban Outfitters takes avant-garde to the next level with their new 'Maxi Tube Dress', whose launch they ring in with an ultracool, quintessentially-UO fashion film.
Except, er, the model can't really move. Over on their blog, they have interviews with the 'stylist' and 'designer' alongside posts about up-and-coming artists like
Ryan Gosling and Justin Bieber.
7. Cosmopolitan 'interviews' Amanda Bynes
...Using only her increasingly bizarre tweets as responses.
8.Fashionista announces the launch of their new site: Cat-shionista!
Some of the features: "Copycat", a cat-focused copyright column, a full archive of
cat-itorials, and investigative reporting on the seedy underbelly of the feline modeling industry.
9.xoVain's publishes a series of not-so-service-y beauty columns
Now we can all learn how to apply makeup in the dark, get DIY gap tooth (eek!), and shave off our eyebrows for the sake of 'art'.
