Have you heard the news about Chace Crawford dropping out of the “Footloose” remake? Boy must be hard up for a job now because he’s filling in as a guest editor for fashion magazine Grazia. What does Chace Crawford know about style, you ask? We hope a bit more than the last time Grazia interviewed him and in response to the question, “Who is Alexander Wang?” Chace responded, “I’ve met Vera Wang; are they married?” Yet, they’ve given him a second chance!

We are pretty consistent fans of uber-cool fashion mag V and its gentlemanly counterpart, VMan. That said, what in God’s name were they thinking with this Shrek editorial? I guess it’s a little funny? Kind of? But it’s mostly just perplexingly behind the times and a total non sequitur. We get that the ten billionth Shrek movie is coming out in a few weeks, but that hardly seems the sort of thing that V would give a crap about. Did the Shrek folk pay them for the placement? Is this just an ill-executed attempt at fashion shock value? Is it, perhaps, an effort at deeper commentary about the relationship between man and animated beast? The best editorials are more than fashion fluffery; they leave us with questions. These, however, are not the right questions. More totally confusing images from the shoot after the jump.

We have to give props to Japanese dudes for their willingness to explore fashion options. True, the country’s guido-inspired OraOra look didn’t quite capture us, but there’s something to be said for pushing extremes.

Thandie Newton emulated silent film actress Theda Bara in 1917′s “Cleopatra” to commemorate the launch of 2010 Virgin Media Shorts, a competition for undiscovered film talent. The series of photographs was shot by celebrity portraitist Lorenzo Agius and styled by Suzie Harman who also worked with Thandie on “RocknRolla.” In this photo, Thandie is wearing a dress by Jenny Packman, a headdress by Cosprop, and jewelry by Solange Azagury Partridge. See other photos in the series here. [Vogue.com] Keep reading »
Kim Kardashian lends her name (and butt) to all kinds of dodginess — QuickTrim, anyone? But we’ve got to say, we’ve poked around her “premier shoe society,” ShoeDazzle, and, well, we’re actually impressed! Keep reading »
You know those nights when you’re dancing and it’s hot and, all of a sudden, the t-shirt and bubble skirt you’re wearing start to feel like altogether too much clothing? This is a dress for such evenings. Screw layers and sleeves and embrace nearly naked. It’s a big switch after the wool we’ve been burying ourselves in all winter, but it’s a definite case of trading up. We’re into the off-kilter layering of sheer and opaque, but not as much as we’re loving the nice price tag. It’s not cheap, but this dress looks more Alexander Wang than $138 usually buys.
