There’s been a debate — both here in the Styleite offices and in other stylish corners of the Internet — as to whether the dress Lady Gaga wore to accept her Video of the Year award at last night’s VMAs was actually made out of meat. We hemmed and hawed all day long, saying, “No — she wouldn’t actually sit in an auditorium full of people clothed entirely in rotting meat. It would stink!” or “Look at the pictures, and zoom in. There’s no way that’s actual fabric.” It turns out, the yes-it-is-meat-too camp was right.
As much as we love Fashion Week, it’s always nice to take a break from an industry that takes itself very seriously, sartorially speaking, to one that, well, doesn’t. While some people may be out at carnival-themed parties and celebrating supermodels, we’ll be at home on our couches watching the MTV Video Music Awards. So check back here at 8PM EST. We’ll be waiting!
Just because The City isn’t filming doesn’t mean that Whitney Port is taking a break from being in the spotlight. According to NY Mag’s Vulture blog, Port has been cast in a scripted, web-only series based on a Zoey Dean novel called Hollywood Is Like High School With Money. Wait, isn’t that what Laguna Beach was about?
They say you can’t know where you’re going until you realize where you’ve been. With that in mind, we’re taking a glance back. The past week has been a roller coaster of fashion news and events — and luckily, we were there to catch the good (like the spot-on choices for the September magazine covers), the bad, and the ugly.
Is The City getting canceled? The good people at Fashionista seem to think so, but other blogs and writers disagree. We analyze the likelihood of the rumors after the jump.
After seducing us in countless spreads and campaigns with her signature red locks and voluptuous curves, England’s favorite babyface beauty Lily Cole has recently announced her decision to depart from the modeling world to further her budding acting career. But, realistically, what are her chances of success?
Let’s start with the truth: this episode was so uninspiring. We watched it last night, and then re-watched it idly while working this morning, and as we sit here and think of all the OMG DRAMZ points we want to bring up, we’ve got nothing. But that can’t be true! The City takes up an entire 17 minutes (if one shrewdly skips commercials) and so something must have happened! And then we remember: something happens. And it involves Shakespeare.
Even though I may not readily discuss that I watch “The Hills” and know every character arc and plot twist, I have to admit that this final season is one to watch if you’ve never brought yourself to sit through an entire episode. I am not endorsing the show as a revolutionary concept in reality television. What I am interested in is the amazing exploration into self-hatred, body dysmorphic disorder, and addiction to plastic surgery that are the backbone of this show.
OK, so there’s been a ton of fashion news today but nothing has blown my mind as much as the trailer for the third season of The City. I have goosebumps. Anyway, I’ve obviously embedded the video, but I have some thoughts. And they are important. (And I’ve included screenshots where appropriate to help illustrate these very important thoughts.)
Tri-Staters take note: the Jersey Shore’s resident fashionista, JWOWW is readying a clothing line and says it will include more than just her signature boob-sling.
