Watch A Fashion Model Imitate A Horse In This Bizarre Fashion Video

My Love/Hate Relationship With Drop-Crotch Pants

My Love/Hate Relationship With Drop-Crotch Pants

For Love/Hate Week, TheGloss‘ editors are documenting all the things we’re ambivalent about: big breasts, Valentine’s Day, other stuff. I don’t usually experience contradictory attitudes toward things, I’m pretty all or nothing. There’s one thing that came to mind, though, one thing that could probably tarnish my otherwise completely stellar reputation as fashion editor of this site: I fucking love drop-crotch pants. More »

Friday Style Icon: Chloe Sevigny

Friday Style Icon: Chloe Sevigny

I’m a fan of Chloe Sevigny. Or ChloĂ« Sevigny as people with any keyboard proficiency like to call her. I think she has genuine style. And she was in Last Days of Disco, which ruled. Though I agree with her detractors that not every risk she takes pays off, she’s still always 90% more interesting than every other actress on a red carpet anywhere. Also, I’m hungover today and couldn’t come up with some kitschy ’90s show or guilty pleasure movie to mine for ideas. So here’s a bunch of great Chloe Sevigny style decisions and a bunch of things that resemble them. More »

Paris Fashion Week: Our 15 Favorite Looks

Paris Fashion Week: Our 15 Favorite Looks

The mood in Paris was somber. The runways saw countless covered figures (loads of sleeved dresses, capes and capelets topped dozens of wideleg trousers), though these are Fall collections, after all. Some silhouettes were unapologetically ladylike (like at Miu Miu and Nina Ricci) but there seemed to be a storm cloud over many of the shows: Chanel was staged in a post-apocalyptic wasteland, the Alexander McQueen collection was in honor of “the Ice Queen and her court,” and the backdrop for Lanvin’s austere looks was a weeping willow. Dark, maybe, but plenty to love.

Academy Awards Fashion: What We Predict Actresses Will Wear to the Oscars

Academy Awards Fashion: What We Predict Actresses Will Wear to the Oscars

The Academy Awards–otherwise known as The Superbowl for Women–is around the corner, which means much speculation about what all the lady attendees will wear (but no speculation about bro-xedos because man fashion on the red carpet is the only thing more boring and safe than lady red carpet fashion). So here’s a gallery of the women nominated (or women in films that are otherwise nominated, eg Tilda Swinton) and our guess for their Oscar night looks. More »

Halloween Gallery: Best Goth Looks From Spring 2011

Need some runway inspiration for the spookiest weekend of the year? Need a distraction from the bowls of waxy American chocolate scattered about your office? Are you sick of people incorporating words like “spooky” into casual conversation? What about “boo” puns? I suggest you throw on some headphones, ignore the pervasive nausea you’re feeling from all those (allegedly) “fun-size” Twix bars and More »

Gallery: Tasteful Ways to Wear 'Slutty' Clothes

So, yeah, maybe if you try really really hard, you can dress in a way that will make people assume you’re a slut (but guess what: no matter how you dress people will assume shit!). Now, an item of clothing can’t necessarily be slutty, but it can be styled… in a way I would not advise. Today’s fashion gallery showcases some looks traditionally considered “slutty”–microminis, exposed midriffs, fuck me pumps–done in ways that won’t have your mother rushing to throw a towel over you. Let’s begin. More »
