The last couple years have seemed like an extremely unstable time to be a fashion designer–the musical chairs involved the lion’s share of major houses in Paris including Christian Dior, Balenciaga, Yves Saint Laurent, Balmain, Chloe. Continuing right along with the trend, now comes Louis Vuitton: after 16 years, the brand is parting ways with creative director Marc Jacobs. More
Leave it to fashion people to be complete assholes when a Grammy winning icon is performing just for them, and leave it to Fiona Apple to call them out on it. 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
People love Cara Delevingne. We guess because they like gifs a lot? Regardless, the very near overexposed Brit It Girl has the cover of W‘s all-important September issue and, unusually, the accompanying profile begins with a discussion of her psoriasis. More
I mean, if you’re going to look like anybody who’s also famous, it might as well be Audrey Tautou, right? More
The Daily Mail is worried about women, you guys. Not all women (and not really); they’re mostly worried about famous women who can’t maintain imaginary levels of perfection. They’ve been worried about Kate Moss, for example, for a long time–remember … More
A somewhat shocking video recently uploaded to YouTube shows several Buddhist monks wearing flashy aviators and toting Louis Vuitton luggage–not behavior you’d expect from men who have devoted themselves to a religion of asceticism.
They’re also, of course, traveling by private plane. More
The Bling Ring premiered in LA last night with a splashy Louis Vuitton (of course) and Vanity Fair-hosted red carpet.
The stars wore an impressively interesting assortment of looks–what else would we expect from rising style stars like Emma Watson, not to mention established fashion icons like Chloe Sevigny, Gwen Stefani and Sofia Coppola? Check out all the looks below.
And yes, Paris Hilton was there. What else is she doing these days? 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
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
