Gallery: Jennifer Lawrence's Vogue UK Spread Does Not Match Her Vogue UK Cover

As previously reported, Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence can be seen on the November cover of Vogue UK looking fancy and lovely in Dolce & Gabbana. But anyone who opens up the magazine expecting to find a collection of similar photographs is in for a disappointment; the editorial within shows a much more casual J-Law lounging around in various snuggly sweaters. This is bound to disappoint certain fashionistas, but it should be a pleasant surprise for sweater-lovers, MDMA addicts (she looks so soft!), and anyone who likes to fantasize about what Jennifer Lawrence would look like if they accompanied her on a romantic fall leaf-peeping trip upstate. Which one are you? More »

Dolce & Gabbana Offers Racist Earrings For Spring 2013

Dolce & Gabbana Offers Racist Earrings For Spring 2013

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 »

French Vogue‘s September Issue Features A New Look And 3 Beautiful Supermodels

French Vogue's September Issue Features A New Look And 3 Beautiful Supermodels

It’s that exciting time of year when we fashion bloggers brace ourselves for 5 lb. September issues (and dread the arrival of Fashion Month). After last week’s reveal of an appealingly offbeat Lady Gaga on the September cover of American Vogue, we are happy to report that the magazine’s French sister is doing things a little different next month, too.

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

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. 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 »

Probing Question: Pajamas In Public Are A Bad Idea, Right?

Probing Question: Pajamas In Public Are A Bad Idea, Right?

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 »
