Central Saint Martin’s College of Art and Design is home to one of the world’s oldest and most well-respected fashion design programs. The school has helped launched the careers of Alexander McQueen, Jenny Packham and Givenchy’s Ricardo Tischi, among others. Each year, the school hosts a show from the fashion program’s master’s students, showcasing their offbeat and avant garde collections. Click through to see some of the school’s most wild offerings — and possible future McQueens — in action.
By now you’ve hopefully seen last night’s season two finale/Christmas special of “Downton Abbey,” in which plenty of loose-ends were tied up and anticipation was set for season three. Vanity Fair has made a bunch of funny trading cards inspired by the show — click through the gallery to see some of my favorites, then check out the rest, along with VF’s predictions for season three, at the link.

This is Helen Flanagan. She’s a star in the U.K., famous for being on a show called “Coronation Street,” and, it appears, her penchant for revealing outfits. If this particular outfit is any indication, I don’t think Helen’s clothes would be quite so revealing if she just bought them in her size. Her breasts seem understandably angry about being expected to stay under wraps. They’re rebelling! Anyway, here are 11 other pairs of celeb boobs that would like to join the movement. “Titties of the world in too tight clothing, unite!”
This past weekend, the Writer’s Guild held simultaneous awards shows on both the east and west coasts. Stars — I suppose the particularly writer-friendly stars — showed their appreciation by turning out in droves. And Zooey Deschanel, who filed for divorce earlier this year, encouraged the nerdy writers to make a pass at her. Joking during the opening of the west coast awards ceremony, Deschanel said, “Welcome to Nerd Prom. Male writers, you are so hot with your minds and plaid shirts. Hit on me.” Well, okay then. Check out Deschanel’s tartan gown — and all the rest — in the gallery above…
I’m so accustomed to seeing penises scrawled on Reese Witherspoon’s face on those “This Means War” posters that it’s refreshing to see graffiti that’s not an ode to the male anatomy. Oh, I’m sorry. Are we not supposed to call it “graffiti”? Is it called “street art” because the doodles are on posters for “Mad Men,” which is a classy show? So be it. It’s “Mad Men” street art. And here are 10 that are pretty clever. [ONTD; Best Week Ever]
Astrology can be a powerful tool to better understand yourself, but it’s also a fun reminder of the great qualities each of us possess. I’ve teamed up with astrologer extraordinaire Katelyn Kollinzas to compile a list of things that make each sign uniquely awesome. Whether you’re astrology-obsessed or just curious, check out your zodiac love letter for a little confidence boost. And, of course, tune in next week when we explore the not-so-awesome side of each sign!
A sign that I am not a real “fashion” person is that I do not generally like or appreciate the Italian label Marni. And if you don’t gush and die over Marni then you cannot really be considered a fashion person. I think it’s in the rule book. But that’s fine by me because I think Marni makes clothing that your sort of crazy high school art teacher would have worn, if teachers made more money. So it’s sort of shocking to me that despite disliking the incredibly expensive designer label, I am actually loving the collection Marni has put together for H&M. Best of all, almost everything is under $100, with the most expensive item, a coat, being $129. Click onward to see 30 pieces from the collection — including bracelets, necklaces, and dresses — all available March 8. [Fashionista]
Plaid. Why not pepper your wardrobe with a couple of plaid pieces? Pair a plaid shirt with dark wash jeans, or a plaid dress with solid black tights. Tartan — don’t tart — it up!
Photobombs are so much more fun when they involve celebrities, especially when famous folks are on both ends of the explosion. Adam Scott and Lizzy Caplan got Jon Heder and Will Forte good at the “Eastbound & Down” premiere party. Bonus to Adam for flipping the bird while bombing. That’s a move right there.

This past week, the NAACP hosted its annual Image Awards luncheon and pre-awards show gala. Some of the African-American community’s biggest celebs turned out to fete the organization at both events, but not everyone was appropriately dressed.
