We take solace in enjoying window shopping for all the luxury gifts we would get other people if we had an unlimited budget (and the gifts we’d obviously keep for ourselves). More
That fancy bag says so much about a person. More
May we all hope to be this cool at 80 years old. More
Lena Dunham finally got her Vogue cover, and we like it. More

Long, pointy fingernails are having a moment. But would you wear them? More
Ah, cleanses–one of the great hoaxes of our time. More
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
