Move Over Mink: It’s All About Rat Fur

Pardon me while I throw up in my mouth a little, but Vanity Fair‘s VF Blog reports that nutria, 20-pound river-dwelling rats that tend to thrive in Louisiana, are making a splash (!) when it comes to fur-trimmed menswear items this fall. Cute! And designers are already queuing up to put a super sexy spin on the trade:

“I love the masculinity of it. It’s sort of the bad-ass fur,’ [Alabama-based designer Billy] Reid explains. Gilles Mendel sourced his fall 2010 collection fur in Canada. ‘Tougher than mink,’ he says, adding that nutria’s combination of coarseness and shine lends it ‘a androgynous feeling’ and ‘a certain modernity.”

Well, gee guys, when ya put it that way … As if fur isn’t gross enough, did anyone really need to go there? You have to feel bad for this Billy Reid model, above. Hell, we even feel kinda bad for the rat. [Gawker via VF] Keep reading »

What’s The One Item Of Clothing You Couldn’t Live Without?

Jennifer Love Hewitt revealed the sexy item (well, actually items) she couldn’t live without. “Christian Louboutin — I’d wear them and nothing else, if I wouldn’t get arrested [for it],” she said to OK!. I’m totally feeling her on this. The one item I wouldn’t be able to live without would also be a pair of high heels, but I’d have a tough time picking only one pair. I’d have no problem going naked (around my apartment), but I’d definitely switch up my footwear at least once a day. What’s the one item of clothing you need in your life? Keep reading »

Brazil Hosts Pet Fashion Week (Cue Cat Calls)

You’ll either find this incredibly cute or downright creepy—Brazil just hosted its first Pet Fashion Week with a series of runway shows featuring prettied-up pooches. Showcasing pet accessories like collars, clothes, and hats, the event called upon both local and international designers to contribute. Although seeing dog models trot down a catwalk is plenty entertaining, PFW was more about business promotion. Apparently, Brazil has a huge pet economy, second only to the United States, so there’s a large market for fashion products for animals. Kitty couture, anyone? [Tribune.com] Keep reading »

Are We All Slowly Starting To Dress Like 8-Year-Olds?

Is fashion slowly regressing? Right now, it’s all about the ’90s floral patterns and Kelly Kapowski-esque Keds. We’ve even spotted a few skorts here and there. Now one of the latest products to hit American Apparel stores are frilly lace socks. Remember these? We wore these in the third grade, usually to birthday parties with some black patent leather flats. To be fair, the look is already kind of on track with the whole socks-and-heels trend. So wait and watch for it—frilly socks and shiny flats. (And baby barrettes perhaps?)

What do you think of these socks? Too kid-like? Or crazy cute? [American Apparel] Keep reading »

Georgia May Jagger Told To Suck In Her Non-Existent Stomach

Hudson Jeans released video from their photo shoot with Georgia Jagger — you know, Mick Jagger‘s daughter? — and it’s your typical soft core hawtness. But if you listen closely, 19 seconds in you can hear the photographer telling Georgia, “Suck in your tummy a little?” Um, maybe my vision is going to pot in my old age, but this model does not have a tummy.

What To Wear For Boobquake Day

Though it may not quite warrant a work holiday and the banks remain inexplicably open, Boobquake is upon us. Today is the day when we use our chesticles to disturb the very balance of life on earth, causing an “earthquake” with our breasts. “How does this work?” you ask. Well, if the latest BS coming out of radical Iran is to be believed, then “slutty women” have been causing earthquakes with their inappropriateness for years. Boobquake Day aims to harness our collective chestiness for the purposes of testing this questionable theory. Because this is a politically motivated excuse for cleavage, you’re going to want to make sure you do it right. We’ve got a few tips for unleashing the girls, after the jump. Keep reading »
