What’s better than a new magazine cover with Emma Watson‘s gorgeous, stylish face plastered on it? A magazine edited by Emma Watson. More
When we first saw photos of a naked man interrupting Dolce and Gabbana‘s Milan runway show a few days ago, we had a lot of questions. Who was this streaker? Why did he do it? What did he do when he wasn’t streaking? Did he do it for fame, or purely for the chance to feel fashion-infused air gently caress his balls? More
Dolce and Gabbana‘s spring 2014 menswear collection features lots of heroic imagery taken from ancient Greek art and architecture. But one thing they forgot to feature was the iconic male nude, which might explain why one passionate Grecophile decided to go streaking across their runway this past weekend. More
Hey, betches! Sofia Coppola‘s The Bling Ring premieres at Cannes today! The film, which stars Emma Watson as the Worst, is based on a true story about a group of shallow people who robbed rich and famous shallow people. Zeitgeisty!
Anyway, guess what that means? Horrible early/mid ’00s fashion is back! Did you miss whiskered jeans? Louis Vuitton Murakami bags? Purse dogs? Ever-present Frappuccinos? Unapologetic venality? Paris Hilton being marginally relevant?
Hopefully you didn’t. But let’s take a stroll down the worst kind of memory lane with our carefully considered Bling Ring-inspired shopping guide. More
This week: new Dolce and Gabbana perfume, Robert De Niro’s tattoo, and the Kate Middleton plastic surgery craze. AND the SuperBowl, duh. More
Has your baby failed to achieve socially acceptable levels of “that delicious newborn baby smell”? Has this led to feelings of inadequacy and shame for
you young Persimmon? You need never worry about those things again with this exciting new baby perfume from Dolce and Gabbana! More
Remember when Dolce & Gabbana got in Internet trouble for including explicitly racist imagery in their Spring 2013 collection, and we wrote about it, and then they issued a very weak and hole-filled defense, and we wrote about that, too? Well, those racist images are still out there in the world being sold to people, and now a prominent African American fashionista has weighed in on them. More
“Racist caricatures look pretty and go back a long time, okay?” More
Every time we critisize someone or some brand for racism, we are called any number of names–usually along the lines of PC, stupid, or unfamiliar with words (“No, the Klan is racist,” which means that… that other stuff can’t be, we guess?). But our absolute favorite pseudo-argument is, “You’re racist for seeing it that way.” So, we’re cutting that off at the pass. More
Our first response was, naturally, why the hell would Katy Perry stuff her bra/dress? More
Katy Perry would like you to regard her breasts! Aren’t they funny? Funny, funny breasts! More
Dolce & Gabbana are feeling “authentic,” a term you may not immediately associate with the brand (unlike “boobs” or “whiskered jeans”). For their Spring 2013 men’s Ready-To-Wear show, they traveled to an imaginary 1950s Sicily and presented a vast collection meant to realize the period. And inside all those voluminous retro proportions and horizontal striped pants, the Dolce boys cast real live Sicilians: 70 men and boys from around the island, not one of them a professional model. While much of the cast is clearly chiseled enough to moonlight on the catwalk, plenty more of them are strikingly normal, peculiar-looking and perhaps a little frightened. We must say, we kind of like seeing fantastical clothes on civilians, which removes much of the pageantry and adds a strange, welcome dose of (weird!) authenticity. More
We recently bitched (kind of in jest, kind of not really) about professionally-beautiful models cheerfully suggesting that you shouldn’t feel bad about the way you look. Today, David Gandy–who is one of the most successful male models in the business–surprises us all with this unforgiving breakdown of his own features. More
