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
It’s time, everyone. The 2013 Met Gala–or, the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala, if you’re nasty–is upon us. While we have really, really mixed feelings about this year’s theme–Punk: Chaos to Couture–and we know most of the attendees are nervous about committing (despite our helpful styling suggestions!) this is still the biggest red carpet event of the year. Expect one or two unforgettable looks, lots of playing it safe, some real style, some real glamour and, hopefully, a whole lot of beautiful disasters.
So, per usual, we’ll be updating live throughout the red carpet. Come back and refresh often–expect new looks here every few minutes!
Let’s do this. More
Last night, we liveblogged the MTV Movie Awards red carpet. This morning, we’re sifting through the many outrageous looks and trying to come up with ten that might reasonably be considered best. Granted, being on the best dressed list at an MTV awards show is kind of like being “one of the world’s biggest rodents.” You’re still at an MTV awards show.
…Uh. So! Here are our picks for the best dressed at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards. More
Meanwhile, in Japan! More
Louis Vuitton and Love Magazine are in trouble with various anti-sex-work organizations and politicians for a new “fashion film” in which models like Cara Delevingne and Georgia May Jagger play (badly) at being prostitutes. Quelle surprise! More
Just because Lindsay Lohan is currently in a bit of legal trouble doesn’t mean she can’t get her shill on for luxury brands that think drug addicted starlets are cool. Like Louis Vuitton! More
Are we to recontextualize the somber, romantic clothes? Are all models kinds of prostitutes? WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN? More
Marc Jacobs‘ Fall 2013 collection for Louis Vuitton was a more somber, refined take on his namesake collection’s punk rock aesthetic for the season. He told Grazia that he intended the Louis Vuitton woman to have “an attitude of getting dressed up only to find the most glamorous destination is one’s own hotel room.” Which is glamorous, sure, but also kind of sad.
Oh! And it had a nearly naked Kate Moss! More
The 2013 Oscars are taking place tonight–which you probably know if you’re the sort of person who reads ladyblogs (even this one). We’ll be liveblogging our kneejerk reactions to all the fancy designer dresses in this very post, so don’t forget to refresh throughout the night.
Without further ado, we bring you every single look from this year’s Oscars red carpet… More
On a whim, I decided I’d start a handbag business and would eventually be more famous than Kate Spade; yes, that’s what I’d do. More
You can fit a towel in it! More
Ryan Lochte needs an appropriately fratty Abercrombie campaign ASAP. More
First of all: they remade Total Recall. We’re way too lazy to come up with a good joke about having three breasts that hasn’t already been made a million times, so just pretend that lost clause was a really good, inventive one. More
