The Bag Everyone’s Making A Big Old Fuss About This Fall

We’ve already discussed The Shoe that we non-famous people are going all bats**t crazy over, but here’s The Bag of the season, according to Alexander McQueen’s Twitter feed and, um, visual proof — Freida Pinto, Kelly Osbourne, Little Boots and Sam Taylor Wood all wore his Skull Knuckle Duster Clutch to those GQ awards we were discussing yesterday. (On that note, if you haven’t witnessed Kate Moss’ temper tantrum yet, please watch it ASAP.) This shiz is smokin’ hot if, say, you’re into skulls and leather and all that crap (and I assure you, I am), but the problem is that I’m pretty sure the designer’s publicists sent these gorgeous young folks this clutch free of charge, because that’s basically how this system works. Sadly, most of us peons will never quite achieve McQueenian nirvana since the price tag of this delectable little number is no less than $1,895. Check it out here if you want to buy it and/or don’t believe me. Get a much closer look at it after the jump, because you know at least we can look forward to knockoffs coming to an H&M near us soon.

A Shaded View On Fashion Film Festival Coming Soon

Diane Pernet, the mysterious force that runs A Shaded View on Fashion, is hosting A Shaded View on Fashion Film Festival 2009, the world’s first annual fashion, beauty, and style film festival. The event runs from September 25 to 27 at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris, France, if you happen to be in the neighborhood. (Hopefully, the festival will make its way around the globe.) Featured directors and stars include fashion luminaries Steven Klein, Dita Von Teese, Nick Knight, Chloe Sevigny, and Chris Cunningham. It looks jaw-droppingly amazing. Keep reading »

Admit It, You’ve Always Secretly Loved Those Figure Skating Costumes

Johnny Weir, eat your heart out. If you’ve ever wanted to live out your Ice Capade fantasies, now is the moment, thanks to our discovery of Holiday On Ice Costumes, a resale site of over-the-top wardrobe options for ice skaters and, presumably, norms like us. To look Michelle Kwan-chic, you could start with the “Single Ladies” section (named for category, not the Beyoncé song), where you’ll find bedazzled leotards and tulle skirts. To set fire to the ice, check out the flame-themed ensembles. Our favorite, however, has to be this leopard guy’s bolero, which, in certain romantic circumstances, we might not actually mind seeing on a man (if you get what we’re saying).

New Steven Klein Spread For Vogues Hommes Japan Titillates

Fashion photographer Steven Klein‘s latest foray into highly-stylized eroticism can be found not in Vogue Italia but Vogue Hommes Japan. There’s a cover and 30 pages of all-male action, starring ripped abs, bent-over boys, and fetish gear that’s sure to make the girls and the gays alike happy. The sexy male models in contorted poses usually relegated to the sticky, glossy pages of clandestine SM-themed men’s magazines include Travis Hanson, Ryan Koning, and Colby Jamar. Get an eyeful of more of these barely-clad fashion gladiators after the jump. Keep reading »

Fashion Week Primer: The Editors

We all vaguely recognize the big models and can’t help but know who the stylish celebs are sitting front row. But the people who matter most during Fashion Week can be a little trickier to spot. We’re talking, of course, about fashion magazine editors. Check out the big players in our handy-dandy chart after the jump. And don’t worry, some of them aren’t as obvious as you-already-know-who.

Crave: Ha-Yeon Lee Stirrup Rings

Just like two heads are better than one, two rings are too. Which is why we’re loving these “stirrup rings” by Ha-Yeon Lee. They feature two gold vermeil circles attached by a delicate silver chain. Wear one on your ring finger, and one on your index, letting the strand drape over your hand. Or, wear both on the same finger to create a hanging loop. Perfect for the equestrian set, or those who like to keep it together. [$153.44, Kabiri]

Slutty Through The Years: The American Apparel Story

American Apparel does smutty ads like no one else. Whether there’s nip involved or just a hint of ass crack, their amateurish photography and mostly naked ladies have been getting people off — from newspapers and magazines to thousands of websites the world over. After years of practice, countless campaigns featuring hipster girls spread-eagled and guys with super hairy legs in various states of undress, it’s no wonder that they’re so skilled. In homage to the company that’s gone as far towards the skanky side as you can without actually putting out full-on porn (arguable, we know), the geniuses at Style Crave have compiled “The 50 Sluttiest American Apparel Ads of All Time.” And because they’re the 50 sluttiest that don’t actually involve legitimate nudity, it’s vaguely SFW. Oh joy! [Style Crave] Keep reading »

Tyra Banks To Launch Online Style Mag

Just call her Tyra Zoe-Paltrow. Ms. Banks has jumped on the celeb style publication bandwagon with the launch of an online magazine called Tyra: Beauty Inside & Out. The website will cover all things style, including fashion and beauty, but will also focus on health and love. Both with her modeling and talk show, Tyra has been long gunning to change beauty standards, once telling The New York Times that she “wakes up every day to expand the idea of beauty.” Ahem.

So far, on Tyra’s site, a mock magazine cover shows the model alongside some cheeky cover lines like “Kiss My Fit (And Still Fat) Ass” or “Yo Shortie! Models 5’7 And Under.” Kinda funny. What might be slightly more innovative about Tyra’s site is its interactivity with users through audio posts alongside content: “It’s not just a magazine … it talks back to you … this is going to allow for a community of women. It’s real and it’s raw and it’s going to allow for a connection to me like you’ve never had before,” Banks said on “The Today Show.”

Then again, she’ll probably face competition between the other celeb sites created to attract users looking for style information, versus visitors who come solely as Tyra fans. Anyone up for a little “America’s Next Top Online Celebrity Style Editor”? [TyraBanks.com, WWD] Keep reading »
