Marilyn Manson, Courtney Love, Kim Gordon And Ariel Pink (As Kurt?) Star In Saint Laurent's '90s-tastic New Campaign

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.

Illustrated Guide: What Your Stupid Designer Handbag Says About You

Illustrated Guide: What Your Stupid Designer Handbag Says About You

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!

Adam Levine Poses With His Naked Model Girlfriend For Russian Vogue

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 »

Linda Evangelista Demands Sh*tload Of Money In Child Support From François-Henri Pinault

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 »

YSL VS Christian Louboutin: The Saga Continues As One Luxury Label Tries To Sue Another

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 »
