As Paris couture week rolls on, we thought we’d take a moment to look at a lesser-known entry into the couture-o-verse. That would be On Aura Tout Vu, the French label whose name translates to “You think you’ve seen it all.”
Their offerings this season skew toward the dramatic, the Gaga-rific, the over-the-top and way out there. And the styling at their runway show? Full of cyborg-ish details and outlandish chimeras.
This latest collection was titled “Fishing for Compliments,” and is supposed to read like an underwater scene. Personally, I think it seems more influenced by “Snow White and the Huntsman,” but perhaps I’m missing some obvious connection between the fish scales the collection’s supposed to convey and the armor I interpret.
Either way, it’s all very costume-y and dramatic. Take a look after the jump.
Guys, this Craigslist poster was so inspired by Shoshanna on “Girls” that he’s now offering his services as a sex mentor to shy, virginal women everywhere. Doesn’t someone want to take him up on his offer to “mentor” someone out of their virginity. Enjoy! Check out the rest of the post after the jump. [Craigslist]

Today is the 65th anniversary of the bikini, a tortuous little item of clothing devised by a Frenchman named Louis Réard. Aptly named for the testing grounds of the Atomic Bomb, the bikini revolutionized swimwear for millions of women.
Happy birthday bikini!
Jesus Christ, Jordan Catalano. You are such a disappointment.
What a difference a week makes. Less than seven days ago, Katie Holmes was in the throes of announcing her divorce from Tom Cruise. But now? She’s focused on fashion. Holmes has had a fashion line with stylist Jeanne Yang — called Holmes & Yang — since 2009. It’s currently available exclusively at Barneys New York and Harvey Nichols, but this fall the collection will walk the runway in its debut appearance at New York Fashion Week. Cue Diana Ross’s “I’m Coming Out”… [WWD]
