Milan Fashion Week is drawing to a close–which means the next round of Spring 2014 collections are around the corner in Paris. Here’s what the industry–Anna Wintour, Anna Dello Russo, Carine Roitfeld, Emmanuelle Alt–wore, along with the front row’s fanciest–Cate Blanchett, Freida Pinto, Blake Lively, Amber Heard–and even a few supermodels (Kate Moss, Karolina Kurkova, Bianca Balti).

Man’s best friend will never go out of style. More
Hermès insists it “can be used for play”–and thank fucking god for that. Who’d want a branded blue basketball museum piece?
…Well, the sort of person who’d want a Chanel surfboard, probably, or a Louis Vuitton soccer ball or an Alexander Wang jump rope. Which all exist, obviously–and there’s more in the gallery ahead. More
Apparently a woman with a fancy designer handbag is perceived as someone with a “more devoted partner,” and therefore other women are less likely to try and steal him (and his wallet), because all women do is compete for men and beat each other mercilessly with $2000 purses in Swarovski-studded Thunderdomes.

After what felt like forever without it, Mad Men is currently on TV for what will probably feel like way too short a time. In addition to providing plans for all of our Sunday nights, this means its primary players (but mainly the women) get to wear lots of pretty clothes about talk about themselves in magazines. In the latest issue of Net-a-Porter‘s interactive online fashion mag The Edit, criminal undersharer January Jones dons some truly gorgeous outfits and looks, well, gorgeous in them. The accompanying article is fairly similar content-wise to The New York Times‘ sexist hack job, only it takes a strong stance in favor of Ms. Jones’ right to privacy. Imagine that! But even if you are still mad at her for refusing to tell us everything about her interior life, perhaps you can content yourself with the fact that she seems committed to using her exterior to create some really striking images.

The popular fashion victim wore two different pairs of drop crotch leather pants, which begs the question: how many pairs of leather pants does one pop star really need? 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
Apparently people who can spend thousands of dollars on ostrich skin skirts and blue velvet smoking jackets have a pretty laissez-faire attitude about drug use! Huh. More
Successful sports writer and author of Friday Night Lights, Buzz Bissinger (above) recently filed a stunning, fascinating piece for GQ‘s April issue, in which he recounts the extent of his shopping addiction. And when we say shopping addiction, we don’t mean “owning more than two pairs of leather shorts,” we mean “Between 2010 ad 2012, [he] spent $587,412.97 on clothes.” More
Human bodies don’t look like this–and we don’t mean that in that asinine “real women have curves” way; we mean holy shit, human bodies aren’t usually indented where the ass has been ritualistically pruned away by a retoucher. More
It’s art, though, guys. More
We recently mentioned how strange and surreal and completely unsurprising it is that Olivia Wilde: Famously Beautiful Actress feels she’s not pretty enough for cool, smart, funny dudes like Jason Sudeikis.
Today, the strange, surreal, unsurprising-ness continues. More
If we designed clothes, we wouldn’t want Kim Kardashian wearing them either. More
Gucci selected Karmen Pedaru, Joan Smalls, Nadja Bender, Janis Ancens & Baptiste Radufe as the collection of genetically gifted people to star in the Resort 2013 campaign.
But which one did they maul with Photoshop? More
