Kenzo Designers Treat The Crowd To … Cupcakes

If there’s one thing that’s generally true about the fashion industry, it’s that fashion and delicious buttery snacks usually (almost never) don’t go together. But not so in the case of design house Kenzo, who flew the bakers from Magnolia Cupcake Company over to Paris to craft special cupcakes for their show. As guests arrived, they were treated to a Magnolia-made cupcake on their seat. For some, it was probs the first cupcake they’d seen in quite awhile. Not, like, P. Diddy and his buddy Shyne (now a Hassidic Jew, how weird right?), who were seated front row at the show. Diddy’s shown an affinity for Junior’s Cheesecake in the past. But we’re sure model Emmanuelle Alt hasn’t sucked down buttercream icing in a while. And if she has, well, we hate her. [Fashionista]

Sure, you could spend $990 on this T-shirt by Thakoon, BUT YOU’D BE AN IDIOT! Sorry, I don’t mean to yell, but this T-shirt isn’t pooping diamonds, so I can’t understand why it costs so much. Do you? [$990, Shopbop]

Anna Dello Russo is an editor-at-large and creative consultant for Vogue Japan. But she’s probably best known for her wild costumery and show-stopping hats.  Though she’s often seated front row during fashion week, it’s her outlandish outfits that have landed her time and again on style blogs. And Yoox.com even did a T-shirt collaboration featuring some of Dello Russo’s crazier looks last year. We’ve selected one of Dello Russo’s less wild outfits — worn to last week’s Stella McCartney RTW show — to steal. We love how she does so much with a fairly simple palette of black, white and gold. Check out our steal after the jump.

That Kate Upton is a smart girl. Realizing that her 15 minutes of fame, as the cover girl of Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Issue at least, are currently ticking away, she’s launched her own swimwear collection. Titled “Kate Upton’s Beach Bunny Collection,” the line features a series of tiny, bejeweled bikinis. Not personally my style, but what do you think? (And keep in mind, Kate Upton’s rockin’ bod doesn’t come with…)

Jennifer Morrison used to star on “House,” but now she’s on a new show called “Once Upon a Time.” I’ve never seen it, but my roommate is obsessed, so maybe it’s good? The other day, Morrison and pixie-haired co-star Ginnifer Goodwin appeared at the Paley Center for Media’s Paleyfest, at an event designed especially to honor the fairytale-themed show, and Jennifer wore this. This. While I’m generally all for ladies playing with notions of masculinity and femininity, and breaking up the staid “woman-in-a-cocktail” dress monotony, I’m not sure I’m totally feeling Ms. Morrison’s ensemble. What do you think? Does she pull it off?

Cute Penguin Upstaged By Other Cute Penguins

There’s really nothing cuter than an adorable penguin mugging for the camera. Except maybe two adorable penguins mugging for the camera. While this guy might be up close and personal with the camera man’s lens, it’s the two penguins nuzzling in the background that really caught our eye. [Telegraph UK]
