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

I don’t want to say that it’s almost fall, because that kind of sucks, but it’s not NOT almost fall, so here are some bags in jewel tones. More
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.

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
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

Here’s Justin Bieber doing his best Blue Steel on the latest V. And, yes, that is mesh Dolce & Gabbana he’s wearing. More
The holidays are all about friends, family and… spending money like water. No matter how hard you try, you’re always astonished/horrified by the amount of money you burn this time of year. Lucky, cosmetics offer an easy out–many of the most opulent designer lipsticks, for example, hover around $40. If you plan on gifting some loved ones, here’s a guide with lots of options (in lots of universally flattering shades) but really, you should just be gifting yourself something nice before the money runs out. Good luck! More
Jessica Biel has the starring role in Elle‘s December issue and chats with the glossy about all kinds of stuff, by which we mean she answers the obligatory “How do you stay fit?” question (“I feel very lucky that I grew up using my body, playing soccer, doing gymnastics. I’m just not one of those people who are super-duper skinny”), dodges the obligatory Justin Timberlake question (“A girl doesn’t kiss and tell”) and then poses for a few photos in her underwear. She was shot by Carter Smith wearing Versace, Dolce & Gabbana, Reed Krakoff and American Apparel. More
Maroon 5‘s frontman-at-large Adam Levine–AKA the man who sings “Moves Like Jagger” and consequently makes me feel violent–dates veteran hot blonde Russian model Anne Vyalitsyna (Anne V if you’re nasty), which makes him a perfect prop for a “rock’n roll-inspired” shoot in Vogue Russia’s November issue. Check out the couple (and at least one intense Photoshop Disaster) working Alexander McQueen, Dolce & Gabbana, and YSL for Alix Malka‘s camera. Be warned though: there is some fashion nipple. More
