We give Vogue a lot of trouble for over-zealous retouching, so ordinarily when we say a new cover “looks like a painting,” we don’t mean it in a positive way.
But! The December cover of American Vogue has hit the internet and it’s actually a real beauty! More
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
Of all the closets we would like to rob like the Bling Ring, Diana Vreeland’s is at the top of the list. More
Yves Saint Laurent’s life story would make one heck of a movie, or maybe two. A pair of rival French productions are looking to release biopics of the designer later this year, but one has run seriously afoul of the designer’s former partner, Pierre Bergé. More
Former mall goths, rejoice! Goth/glam/shock rocker Marilyn Manson, of the aging surprisingly gracefully Mansons, has landed a starring role in the new YSL campaign, and there’s already a leaked picture of it. More
Do you know about Grimes? Otherwise known as Claire Boucher, she is a mischievous little Canadian ghost who lives inside of synthesizers and casts dancing spells on your feet. She’s also a talented artist and designer, as we have seen with her brilliant “pussy [shaped] rings” and her bad ass artwork. She is also pretty and stylish and kind of blowing up right now. Hence, it comes as no surprise that Yves Saint Laurent would want to put her drawings on some $350 t-shirts.
Apparently, Hedi Slimane personally asked her to design a capsule collection for YSL after shooting her for Dazed and Confused Magazine. When opportunity comes a knockin’, etc. But in case you thought all that attention was going to her head, the musical hermit says she will not be attending Paris fashion week, as she is currently “deep in the Canadian mountains.” 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
Come on, she’s married to the guy who owns Yves Saint Laurent and Alexander McQueen, just to name a few. She can do better than this. More
After what feels like an endless series of speculations, rumors, and shake-ups (as well as some high-profile goose chases and a few poorly-received collections by interim designer Bill Gaytten), Christian Dior has finally announced who will follow disgraced former creative director John Galliano. More
The plot keeps thickening: maybe Raf Simons didn’t step down from Jil Sander with his eyes on the top spot at Christian Dior (or Yves Saint Laurent!) as we previously thought. WWD’s Bridget Foley says Simons was actually fired from … More
TWIST! TWIST! Days after Raf Simons‘ resignation from Jil Sander–amid much speculation that he’d succeed John Galliano at Christian Dior–Stefano Pilati has announced he’ll exit Yves Saint Laurent after his final show on March 5th. More
The Brit Awards–the UK’s equivalent of the Grammys–went down last night and (predictably) the big winner was Adele, whose middle finger also made serious waves. It was a big night for high fashion: Alexander McQueen, Givenchy couture, and Yves Saint Laurent strolled the carpet attached to the likes of Florence Welch, Rihanna, Kylie Minogue and more. More
