Marc Jacobs’ designing is often rife with a pastiche of cultural references from the past. His latest collection for Louis Vuitton is no different, directly pulling from mod ’60s styles. While the collection was pretty, and pretty unsurprising, its display was anything but: Jacobs sent his models down one of four specially painted escalators, which gave the show the appearance of being at a very, very high end mall.
I’m currently in the midst of the majorly infuriating process of growing my hair out and I am getting increasingly frustrated with my mid-length, stupid bob haircut. In order to cope with the complete shitshow that is my hair right now, I’ve taken to wearing scarves as head wraps. Only problem? They make me look like I’m a Hassidic woman who’s just left the faith. So in the interest of finding a better alternative to my chunky scarves, I’ve searched out nine great head wraps that’ll do the job instead.
Maybe you’re a fan of Marina and the Diamonds and lady rapper Kitty Pryde? Or maybe you just like sloths. Either way, this video for “How To Be A Heartbreaker” will satisfy. [YouTube]
Is there ever a time when Dita Von Teese doesn’t look glamorous? If so, I haven’t seen it yet. Here she is going to Pilates. Pilates! I bet most of the girls in her class show up in greasy ponytails and Juicy velour track suits. They must hate her. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
As we settle deeper into fall and winter, it’s inevitably time to take stock of your tights options. If you’re anything like me, you’ve got a rather extensive collection of somewhat ratty, ripped and worn out stockings in dire need of replacement. And that’s why I’m so happy that there’s a new service, for people just like us. Pique is a new online service that sends you new tights each month. You fill out a simple style survey and can begin receiving hosiery in the mail immediately. My first month, I received a smashing pair of fishnet tights and a darling set of fishnet sock stockings. Because you can never have too many tip top tights, if you ask me. [$34,83, Pique]
Scott Stapp is the lead singer of ’90s band Creed. Creed are a bunch of Nickleback Jrs. — they used to be, like, the most hated band in the world until Chad Kroeger and Co. unseated them. Nowadays, Stapp is busy punditing about the upcoming election on Fox News. He’d really like another Reagan, but might just settle for Romney! Important, if you’re the type to make your political choices based on how your favorite ’90s musicians will vote. But more importantly, Stapp now looks like Quagmire on “Family Guy.”
