Do you hear that a jacket costs $68,000 and let your jaw go slack with sheer puzzlement? I don’t. I just look at the picture of it and immediately begin searching for the jewels. I am looking at this Saint Laurent Paris jacket and I am not seeing any jewels. More
When I saw the first glimpse of Yves Saint Laurent‘s ’90-centric new campaign featuring one Marilyn Manson last week, I got very, very excited. This was because I love ’90s alt-rock in the deepest and most reptilian part of my brain; it’s all that will be left in my head when I’m old and senile. Now, the entire campaign has been released, and it doesn’t disappoint, as Manson is joined by fellow ’90s icons Courtney Love, Kim Gordon and
Kurt Cobain Ariel Pink? More
Holy hell, people. More
New creative director Hedi Slimane is apparently making drastic changes at Yves Saint Laurent… changes that will even extend to its name. Yes, in extremely surprising news, we learn today that the house will no longer be “Yves Saint Laurent.” More
No, actually. More
Although Adele got the coveted cover spot, Nicki Minaj may steal the show in American Vogue‘s March issue. More
You know that obnoxious “Stars: They’re Just Like Us!” page of every celebrity weekly? We saw one the other day that featured Kelly Rutherford from Gossip Girl, and she was pumping gas or feeding the meter or some shit under that very headline… only she was toting a $10,000 Hermès Birkin. Now, we can think of at least one way Rutherford isn’t just like us: we’re not stupid enough to spend $10k on a goddamn status billboard that carries tampons*. Look, we work in fashion, we see frivolity and conspicuous consumption everyday… and now we’re making fun of it! With crude drawings! Here are some assumptions we make about ladies with specific designer purses–YSL, Louis Vuitton, Balenciaga, Alexander Wang and more ahead. More
The Kardashians have learned their lesson: if designers object to you stealing from them, just do it elsewhere. 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

On Sunday, the fashion press did one big Coke Zero spittake when news of Raf Simons moving to YSL spread across Twitter. The story traced back to International Herald Tribune online style editor Jessica Michault, who had tweeted, ”Suzy Menkes breaks the news that Raf Simons is slated to take over the helm at Yves Saint Laurent,”effectively also breaking the news that Stefano Pilati was leaving YSL. BUT… More
Last month, the world learned that the long-anonymous father to supermodel Linda Evangelista’s son was none other than fashion baron François-Henri Pinault, who is best known as chief exec of PPR (the French multinational holding company that owns Gucci, YSL, Balenciaga, McQueen, etc.) and Salma Hayek’s partner. Yesterday, Evangelista was in Manhattan family court to protest that Pinault hasn’t given her a cent in child support. Now, she’s demanding… $46,000. …A month. More

Just to bring you up to speed: Christian Louboutin got pissed at Yves Saint Laurent after the French luxury house released a red-soled heel as part of its 2011 Cruise collection. Louboutin believes itself to be the only entity that can produce red-soled shoes. YSL then told Louboutin to suck it. Excitingly, attorneys for both brands are saying more things to the press! Much catty attorney-talk ahead. More
As part of her ongoing quest to make sure her new album and longstanding hotness dominate this summer’s news cycle, Beyoncé is appearing on the cover of every magazine known to man. Perhaps in a bid to up her indie cred, the pop diva did a shoot for the July issue of indie lifestyle mag Dazed and Confused, and what she lacks in topicality, she more than makes up for in clothes-wearing ability. Click through to see Her Bootyliciousness rocking pieces by Givenchy, YSL, Tom Ford and more. More
