Be Shallow, Awful And Adorbs With Our Bling Ring Shopping Guide

Be Shallow, Awful And Adorbs With Our Bling Ring Shopping Guide

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 »

Dolce & Gabbana Hired Regular People (Instead Of Models!) For Their Runway Show

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.

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.
