  • Anne Hathaway owed someone an apology regarding her appearance on Oscar night (and no, that “someone” isn’t all of us after we were forced to stare at what appeared to be her nipples all evening). You see, Anne was supposed to wear a couture dress by Valentino, but she flipped out and grabbed that Prada at the last minute after catching wind that Amanda Seyfried was wearing a similar dress. The house of Valentino even announced beforehand that Anne would be wearing Valentino… and then she didn’t. Disappointment abounds! Here’s the Best Supporting Actress winner’s public apology. [Huffington Post]
  • Noooooo! Calvin Klein’s erstwhile boytoy/talking monkey (such a cool party trick) Nick Gruber is no longer writing a tell-all about his two-year relationship with the designer. Despite a bidding war and what Gruber describes as “a ton of interest” in the memoir, the model said of the deal, “I just did not want to hurt him or others. I am a good person, not a mean person.” I suspect bribery. [The Cut]
  • Carine Roitfeld and “Mob Wives” are seemingly on opposing ends of the class spectrum, but leave it to irreverent Carine to go where no upmarket fashion editor has gone before. The former Vogue Paris editor-in-chief spent a day shooting with Big Ang and the gang for the second issue of CR Fashion Book and loved every trashy minute of it. [Styleite]

Paris Fashion Week Fall 2013 Ready-To-Wear: Days 1-3

After three weeks in New York, London, and Milan, we’ve finally made it to Paris. Many of the most important shows of the season just so happen to run in Paris — you might even be able to say that the city is the original home of the industry itself. The coming week is a glorious show-filled doozy, so ready your Style.com account and your computer’s zoom feature. We’re covering the past 3 days with Alexis Mabille, Dries Van Noten, Rochas, Ann Demeulemeester, Balmain, and Alexander Wang’s debut collection at the house of Balenciaga.

Karl Lagerfeld is one kooky old bigot (whom I happen to find quite endearing, though others may not agree and despite the fact that I am most definitely too fat for his tastes anyway), but he is now responsible for one of the best moves ever made in the history of celebrities-as-fashion faces. It involves Chanel. Also, Tilda Swinton. Tilda Swinton! That’s right: Karl has tapped Tilda to front the ad campaign for his most recent couture collection. The collection was shown in an old castle in Scotland, Tilda is Scottish; it all makes perfect Chanel sense! This is the first time representing a major luxury brand for Tilda, which, how is that even possible given that she is tall, pale, willowy, crazy-cheekboned, ridiculously elegant Bowie-alike perfection? A mystery. Not that I’m complaining, because Tilda plus Chanel equals unnggghghghgjdghdf. It’s going to be so good. That’s the first image from the campaign, above. Very Narnia indeed. [The Cut]

“Oh my god, I haven’t seen [the new Dior campaign]. That doesn’t look like me at all. I love Photoshop more than anything in the world. Of course it’s Photoshop, people don’t look like that.”

— Oh, Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence, always coming up with new, ridiculously endearing ways to worm herself even deeper into our hearts. She loves Photoshop! Jen’s Miss Dior ads are stunning, but I love that she’s acknowledging that the otherworldly smooth, velvety skin in the photos is not the same skin she wears on a regular basis. (Undertones of Buffalo Bill? It is what it is.) It spares us all the self-doubt, not to mention the soul-searching trip to Sephora for Dior Airflash Foundation. But on the real, that stuff rules, just sayin’. It’s spray-on. [Crushable]

Feeling slightly less than dazzling this afternoon? Me too. (It’s really grey and rainy and horrible outside and my hair is frizzy; what’s your excuse?) [Um, Rachel wrote this yesterday afternoon, but I didn't get a chance to put it up until this morning. Weather is much better today! -- Amelia] I could’ve used another shot of espresso in my Americano this morning, but who needs caffeine when you can instead harness the revitalizing power of Nicholas Hoult‘s steely blue gaze? Good looks, Hoult. Now, when will he be in NYC next? Asking for a friend.

So this is what they mean when they say “this is why we can’t have nice things”: Fashion’s Night Out is dunzo, folks, and it’s all your fault. No, I’m just kidding. Kind of. See, Americans have a way of taking a perfectly good, maybe even ingenious idea and blowing it up into a different beast entirely. More often than not, said beast is terrible. Keep reading »
