The Nicholas Kirkwood x Keith Haring Collaboration is Out!

Nicholas Kirkwood is a bonafide shoe genius. And Keith Haring revolutionized the art world in the ’80s and ’90s by helping to show that activism and art could meld into bright, beautiful creations. So when it was revealed that Kirkwood would be creating a collection of shoes in honor of Haring, well, we couldn’t wait to see them. Sadly, his knee-high rollerskate boots aren’t for sale — they’re only on display at the Arnhem Mode Biennale, but we could imagine trying to DIY our own pair of high-heeled wedges with some day-glo paint some time soon.

I have short hair now, so braids are out of the question, but when it was longer, I may have put down a chunk of change for someone to teach me how to properly make a fishtail braid. Now Bergdorf’s department store in NYC has opened a Braid Bar where, for $30, John Barrett’s professional braid practitioners will give you the French, fishtail or side braid of your choosing. So tell us, would you pay someone else to braid your hair? [John Barrett] Keep reading »

A Brazilian Model Takes Top Honors — And, No, We’re Not Talking About Gisele

Chances are you’ve never heard of Fluvia Lacerda, but all that’s about to change. Fluvia was just named the Best Plus Commercial Print Model of the Year by Full Figure Fashion Week. She’ll officially receive the award this weekend at Full Figured Fashion Week, for her work with brands like Torrid, Monif C., Igigi and Fashion Bug and has been featured in the pages of Glamour, Bust and Playboy Brazil.

“The fact that I won this award is a major deal and I’m very passionate about my work, mostly because I feel that I represent the body image of many women,” said Lacerda. “I’m not only a healthy woman, but one who wears a size 18 and am confident about it.”

Lady Gaga’s “Edge of Glory,” Solo Dance-A-Thon

In her new video for “Edge of Glory,” Lady Gaga doesn’t have a cadre of dancers or major outfit changes. Instead, it’s just her and a saxophone player on the abandoned set of Paula Abdul’s “Opposites Attract” video. It seems that MC Skat Cat has left a window open, and Paula has left some of her old ’90s Versace lying around — because Gaga is decked out in a very vintage-y Versace bodysuit and shirt for the entirety of the video. So much sass! So much skunk hair! Can you stand it? Check out the video after the jump!

British Vogue Editor Alexandra Shulman Doesn’t See A Problem With Catering To White Consumers

“There have always been black players on the scene — at the moment look at the stylist Edward Enninful, make-up artist Pat McGrath and [models] Jourdan Dunn, Liya Kebede and Joan Smalls, who are at the top of the tree … In a society where the mass of the consumers are white and where, on the whole, mainstream ideas sell, it’s unlikely there will be a huge rise in the number of leading black models. If you look at the characters that sell magazines such as [British mags] Grazia and Heat, it is Jennifer Aniston, Cheryl Cole and Catherine Middleton.”

British Vogue editor Alexandra Shulman, who says she doesn’t believe there’s any institutional racism in fashion. Well, let’s just say it takes some institutional racism to know some institutional racism. Well, as long as white consumers are happy. (Sarcasm.) [NY Mag] Keep reading »
