Think: My Little Pony gone terribly, terribly wrong.
Do you know what would just be the absolute best? If people stopped using anorexia jokes to make money, which is exactly what the people at costume and makeup shop Ricky’s had planned on doing this Halloween season.
By the time Julie Taymor‘s rock musical Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark debuts in New York next year, it will be the most expensive theater production in Broadway history. And because no one loves expensive things more than Anna Wintour, the costly achievement already has a spread in in American Vogue.
Yoko Ono toldPage Six that Warhol once told her that she was dressing a little too plainly and needed to show a flourish here or there. And by here or there, we mean on top of her head.
Models get paid to look great in the clothes normal people wear everyday, so it only made sense to us that they would look absolutely fantastic in things we’d only wear once a year — like Halloween costumes. The gallery inside features all of our favorites: Heidi Klum, Tyra Banks, Alexa Chung and Kate Moss among them, as well as a few names you might not recognize but who nevertheless shut it down regularly on All Hallows’ Eve.
We have defended Tim Gunn and his tendency not to pull punches in the past, but now he’s insulted our dear Lady Gaga and the gloves are off. OK — only half off. Because when asked what he thought of Gaga’s style, he didn’t say what she wears is categorically bad or even not aesthetically pleasing. Just that it’s not fashion.
We love Jim Benton‘s cartoon “My New Designs for Lady Gaga,” not because they’re funny, but because they’re conceptual pieces of art we could actually see the Lady wearing.
Normally, when we think of the sartorial choices at the Miss Universe pageant, over-sequined evening gowns and and tired pastel-colored bikinis are the first things that come to mind. But let us not forget that at this level of competition, contestants have to represent their nations as well as themselves, and one of the many ways they do that is by wearing a national costume.
Upon hearing the news that Doonan would be designing a line of Halloween costumes for Target, we had one thought: finally! It’s a shock to us that no one has asked him to do so before. Who better to dress America’s trick or treaters than the man who dresses the best holiday windows of the world? Oh, and did we mention his birthday is October 31st?
Laura and Kate Mulleavy, the sisters behind the brilliant Rodarte line, have always expressed their interest and love of films, particularly those in the horror genre. According to WWD, their movie dreams are finally coming true.
