The Week In Review: July 5 to 9
On Tuesday, we discovered that Elle MacPherson eats rhino horn, watched in horror as Khloe Kardashian was shortened by about half a foot for a swimsuit ad, and debated whether or not Karl Lagerfeld would guest star on Gossip Girl.
Wednesday was, per usual, a rollercoaster. Lindsay Lohan went to her probation hearing with the words “f*ck u” painted on one nail, right before she was sentenced to 90 days in jail. Paris Couture week started with a roar when Karl Lagerfeld featured an eight-ton lion in his show, and Mario Testino let it slip that Anna Wintour and Kate Moss are dreadfully shy.
Thursday started off with a clear definition of haute couture, followed up with Rachel Maddow reporting on the Italian army’s Armani outfits. Then, Vogue‘s Jeffrey Steingarten wrote the best article anyone has ever written about Gwenyth Paltrow. And then some models fell down on the runway at the Elie Saab show.
On Friday we were taken aback by the bald, bearded, half-naked models featured in Patrick Mohr‘s show during Berlin Fashion week. Then Teen Vogue made a few glaringly offensive oversimplifications of human interaction with an article positing that gay friends are better than girl friends. And at week’s end, what could be better to work out all your stress by breaking stuff? A new store in China allows frustrated women the chance to do just that.
