I like Pink, but this outfit is freaky, and I don’t mean that in a good way. The whole things just screams: “Look at my camel toe, people! My ace bandaged, glittery camel toe!” That is not a message that I want my clothes to telegraph. But maybe that’s why I’m not on the stage like a rock star, no? It’s kind of Cirque de Soleil meets “The Fifth Element.” It is also totally hideous. If you would like to check out a more up-close-and-personal shot of this business, dare to look after the jump.

“Honnneeeeyyy! I’m hooo-ooome!”
“Oh, Poindexter, I’ve missed you all day. Here’s your Scotch, and just let me loosen your tie for — what? What’s this? You’re wearing a bowtie now? And I don’t even have to undo it for you?” Keep reading »
“I have a problem. I’m not only compelled to purchase weird-looking pants online, I also can’t stop myself from wearing said pants despite the fact that they are usually highly unflattering. There are my gray silk harem pants, my black Comme des Garcons for H&M drop-crotch trousers, pants with wide, exaggerated pockets and, I’m afraid to tell you, a pair of jeans that have a bustle affixed to the back. I love fashion and find joy in experimental and avant-garde clothing, but I’m afraid my passion has spilled over into fashion victim territory. Please help!”—Erin
Today on Style 911, a bit of self-help. Let’s talk poor sartorial choices, after the jump! Keep reading »
Emma Watson is off to Brown University this month, and we bet every girl on campus is clamoring to be her roommate just to get their hands on that insanely amazing wardrobe of hers. What they might find, however, are goods from Watson’s collaboration with People Tree, a fair trade clothing company. Keep reading »
Now, thanks to H&M, while you sing to Chester French’s “The Jimmy Choos,” it is possible to dance about in your own pair of reasonably priced Choos. We told you the great news back in July, but today, images are finally leaking onto the internet, including amazing over-the-knee boots that are kind of necessary for your fall wardrobe.

Did you just audibly gasp in horror upon seeing these tie-dye jeans? Us too. Are people seriously buying these? We knew the ’80s were back when acid wash denim started showing up on the butts of celebs, but this is taking things to a whole new level.
Neiman Marcus has been promoting these styles as the “trend to dye for” (oh har-har), and a few culprits are also being sold on RonHerman.com and Shopbop. Surprisingly, the designs are produced by some of our favorite denim brands—Current/Elliot, J Brand, James. The scary thing about tie-dye denim is that it’s almost, almost something you might change your mind about if you saw Kate Moss rocking it the right way. (Let’s hope she doesn’t.)

Want a piece of Marc Jacobs style that won’t cost you your firstborn child? This set of Marc by Marc Jacobs bangles sells for less than 100 bones, and they actually strike us as the grown-up version of something we would have worn as a kid. The five bracelets feature cute crystal owls, apples, and mice affixed to thin gold-plated bands. There’s also one with a signature MJ heart on it — because sometimes the point of wearing a label is to have people know you’re wearing it, right? [$88, Shopbop] Keep reading »
You’ve got to love a couple that looks like they share a closet. Strolling Bond Street, a famous shopping stop in London, Fiona’s Gant blazer and preppy loafers look smart in the early autumn. Her best accessory? Her boyfriend, Gustav. Hopefully, Gustav is as good a match in other ways as he is in the wardrobe department. Keep reading »
Apparently, Anthropologie is jealous of the attention that stores like H&M, Topshop, and Uniqlo are getting for their designer collaborations. So the romantic brand nabbed Brian Wolk and Claude Morais of Ruffian to create four collections which will appear in 55 stores, beginning in November. Sadly, no pics yet, but think a total ’40s style look, complete with coats, silk dresses, and their very own prints. If the stockings look anything like their polka-dot design that walked down the runway in the fall ’09 collection, then it’s sure to sell out immediately.
But it wouldn’t be an Anthropologie collection without just a tidbit of home goods. So, of course, Ruffian-style candles and glasses will be available for purchase. Plus, come spring, you’ll be able to lie on sheets by the boys. Basically they’re taking over the store and our homes. And you know what? We are totally OK with that! [WWD]

After a rocky, anorexia-accusation-laden beginning, London Fashion Week is now offering us a glimpse at runways not peopled with white, pre-pubescent stick figures. PPQ followed in the steps of Carlos Campos in casting an entire runway of black models; knitwear designer Mark Fast sent three “plus-sized” (read “averaged-sized”) girls down the runway in his uber-clingy dresses; and Sykes pulled a Charles Nolan, marching models up to 70 years old down its catwalk.
