Ah, Coachella, a time for (particularly) clueless rich people to dress up like their idea of a ’60s bohemian and enjoy the latest major label chart-topping tunes from the comfort of cushy VIP pens.
Normally, we have a hard line about not making fun of off-duty (non red carpet) famous people, but most of these press-hungry jackasses relish Coachella as an opportunity to wear their cool poor person costume: a floppy hat, short shorts, shitloads of fringe, a leather headband, a $2000 handbag and–the best accessory–a big, dumb peace sign.

Look, the obvious answer is, “No.” Don’t wear pajamas in public. Part of being an adult is putting on clothes. However, thanks to design houses like Louis Vuitton and (especially) Celine, pajamas have gone a little high fashion lately. Salma Hayek–who wears pretty much nothing but luxury labels now that she’s married to PPR CEO François-Henri Pinault–hurried though LAX wearing the above silk set.
We’ve been plugging our ears and covering our eyes for a little while, hoping this trend gets lost because the fashion industry has a way of getting you used to things that, rationally, you understand are stupid. Call us sartoial regressives (don’t actually; you’ll sound like a dick) but the only thing sillier than going out dressed for bed is spending thousands of dollars on silk pajamas. Check out a few examples and tell us if you’re swayed. More
It’s actually pretty nice. More
You may look at this image and think to yourself, “Well, that’s a leather skirt Kanye West is wearing.” And you might even consider how it’s interesting that Kanye’s skirt is a little subversive in his super machismo’ed out field of hip-hip. You might also think to yourself, “That looks more like an apron, Ashley. Why are you so dumb?” More
I should really title this “some of Tilda Swinton’s Greatest Red Carpet Looks” because there’s only 15 slides here and in my opinion few women come anywhere near her fashion prowess. While most actresses rely heavily on romantic, pretty dresses by Marchesa or Elie Saab, Swinton’s fallbacks are Haider Ackermann, Jil Sander and Lanvin. She may get blasted by idiotic red carpet correspondents (who themselves dress like overgrown princesses suffocating under 4 lbs. of makeup), but it doesn’t matter at all: the only thing Swinton has more of than style is… talent. Let’s spend a few minutes appreciating this original. More

Spring is finally upon us, and I know I’m not alone in my desire to slough off the black-on-grey-on-black look that has defined my wardrobe for the past few months. However, I’m not willing to fall into the ubiquitous “florals for spring” trap yet again; something new needs to happen. One thing that attacked the runway this season was head-to-toe bright, monochromatic color. Although this might seem too extreme to translate into your closet, there are definitely ways to make it look fierce and innovative. Be careful though, lest you wind up looking like a remnant of the Cubist movement.
The Dutch painter Piet Mondrian may have been a pioneer in non-representational art in Paris in the early 20th century. But far too often, his influence is terribly visible in wardrobes today. Although his work is art, Mondrian’s work should hang on your walls, not your body. Just say no to neo-plasticism. More
The City star and Whitney Eve-designer Whitney Port slinked around in a bondage-y looking set of lingerie for ladmag Maxim. What’s remarkable here isn’t the yawning gap in public image between Port and say, a real designer like Phoebe Philo or Miuccia Prada, it’s that even in sexy, slinky, bondage-y bras and panties, Whitney Port is still boring as fuck.

Jumpsuits are hard to pull off. …But if anyone is going to wear a jumpsuit and hit it out of the park, it’s Céline’s creative director and all-around master of minimalism, Phoebe Philo. Here she is not surprising anyone with her jumpsuit efficacy as the British Fashion Council deemed her Designer of the Year. More
Fashion coverage: sometimes I wonder who it’s for. While flipping through Harper’s for example, you’ll see $4,000 sequined clutches breezily showcased as your must have for Fall! or watch 10k crocodile pumps go from office to evening! So yeah, that’s crazy. Style.com offers ten tips to “freshen up your Spring wardrobe,” and I’m here to translate. More
