Ugg Boots Page 1
Last night, we had the honor of viewing Laura Smalls‘ spring 2013 collection. The Michelle Obama-approved designer sent out a smattering of tailored looks, and sitting right across from us in the front row was André Leon Talley in a burgundy ensemble, and wait, Uggs? Indeed.
Laura Smalls has flown relatively under the radar since she debuted her eponymous line three years ago, but now, thanks to Michelle Obama, she’s a household name. The FLOTUS wore not one, but two of Smalls’ dresses during the Democratic National Convention last week. Michelle also chose a Smalls frock back in 2011, and as the story goes, anything she wears turns to gold.
Just when you thought the saga of counterfeit Uggs couldn’t get any uglier, it did. This week, US Customs officials shut down a complex plan between two criminal networks that had planned to sell some $325 million worth of counterfeit Uggs and other fake fashion items in the United States.
There’s at least one middle school in America where kids are no longer allowed to wear Uggs, and parents who send their kids to school there are royally ticked off about the new policy.
We’re pretty sure it is.
Let it be known that Lil Wayne is not one to follow any fashion rules. From wearing saggy, baggy, leopard print lady jeggings to hipster-wear like plaid shirts and cardigans, his style is more or less all over the map. But what to make of his latest ensemble, which features a pair of DayGlo green ugg-style boots?
It’s an oldie but a goodie, and as the weather chills, the days get shorter, and your ability to accurately judge what constitutes an “outfit” wanes considerably, this anti-Ugg commercial is worth watching.
This is as good a reason not to buy counterfeit goods as we’ve ever seen. Some makers of fake Ugg boots are inhumanely skinning raccoon dogs for the fur needed to create an authentic looking shoe.
Being a blogger during Fashion Week is exhausting, but being a model during Fashion Week sounds downright grueling. Castings and fittings and shows and parties — oh, and those heels! Where can a girl catch some R&R in the midst of all the madness? The UGG Australia Model Lounge, of course.
It’s official: Uggs, the ugliest boots in existence that make grown women look like sloppy toddlers will give you foot fungus.
This weekend WSJ (the Wall Street Journal‘s magazine) takes a look at UGG Australia. In addition to providing some interesting company history and a handy real Ugg v. fake Ugg guide, WSJ also gives us the most adorable video of the week: SHEEPS IN UGGS. OMG.
We’re still having some difficulty wrapping our heads around the chaotic organized fabulousness that is Fashion’s Night Out — it’s happening this Friday night! This year the nighttime shopping extravaganza has been ramped up with more stores open and more events to cover, and we’re going to try and see as much of it as we can — without driving ourselves crazy, of course. From Midtown to the West Village, SoHo to the Meatpacking District, here’s where you’ll find us on Fashion’s Night Out.
Hi Rachel — I am not able to get away on a summer trip this year, but luckily I do have some time off…any ideas on how to make this time just as relaxing as a vacay? Thank you!
It seems not even Oprah can escape the Sex and the City 2 craze. Next month’s O Magazine takes a look at the girl behind the girls: stylist Patricia Field who, in addition to creating Carrie Bradshaw’s image, has been one of the greatest visionaries in the New York fashion scene since first opening her boutique in 1966. And while we were thrilled to get an advanced peak at the stylist’s favorite things, some of her responses left us scratching our heads and thinking, “Huh?”
