Quote Of The Day: Katie Grand Supports Wedding Dresses That Aren’t White

“I wore an Azzedine Alaïa brown snakeskin dress, which he tortured me for about two months to get into, but at least it’s something I can wear again. I didn’t want some stupid white dress; it seems like such a waste.”

– Kate Grand, editor-in-chief of Love and stylist who has worked with Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs, Calvin Klein Underwear, Dior Homme, Prada, and more [Times Online] Keep reading »

Fall Trend Alert: Socks And Pumps!

When it comes to style standards, one thing holds true: There are none. Just when you think you’ve absolutely mastered all the fashion no-nos, the industry can manage to turn around any look. One fashion faux-pas we were certain about was socks with high heels, which seems like the equivalent of guys wearing socks with Teva sandals. But lo and behold, what should we find when browsing the J. Crew new arrivals section, but a whole selection of colorful socks paired with classic pumps and mary janes. The styles come in various heights, including ankle and the more traditional knee-high lengths. Is this controversial old trend new again? The more we poked around, the more we found new sock styles that looked like they were made exactly for such a look.

What do you think? Will you don socks and heels for fall? Check out some other looks after the jump… [$9.50-$24.50, J. Crew] Keep reading »

Woman Trades Diamonds For Husband’s Infidelity

Being cheated on sucks. The insecurity, the anger, the effort it takes to burn down his house … it’s all the pits. And while we wouldn’t wish that on anyone, one English woman found a way to lessen the sting a bit, by demanding diamonds from her spouse every time it happened.

Elizabeth Charlton was married to her husband for 26 years. During that time, she gathered more than half a million dollars of “I’m Sorry” jewelry. From big ‘ol diamond necklaces to brooches, rings and bracelets, the girl accessorized her embarrassment well. So well, in fact, that a selection of 43 pieces just sold for a collective 300,000 British pounds at auction. Would you trade your husband’s infidelity for boatloads of bitchin’ jewelry?

Babies Are The New It Bag, Even For Men

It’s been a new day, a new preggers Hollywood actress and/or model lately. In fact, sometimes it seem like babies are the new It bag of choice for some women—who needs Chanel or Chloe when you can tote around a living, breathing Hermes (Hello, Kelly Rutherford)? And now the men folk are getting in on it. Out magazine’s “Baby Daddy” spread features not only some of the most in-demand male models around, but also … babies as props! Screw designer murses—this is all about the well-dressed man and his genetically blessed kid. Check out some of the photos, after the jump. [Design Scene] Keep reading »

Andy Samberg Takes On “Elle” Fashion Challenge For “Date Looks”

Over at Elle, Creative Director and Fashionisto Joe Zee has had an epiphany. Complains a fashion editor to Zee, “He won’t understand that it’s all about my new draped devore velvet Balenciaga dress right now. He’ll only think I’m wearing curtains,” as she laments (oh boo hoo) her first-date outfit choices. And then it hits Zee: Women dress differently for guys than they do for girls. You don’t say? It may have taken Zee a while to figure this out but he gets it now, explaining, “It’s a simple fact: He’s Just Not That Into Your Skirt.”

And so Zee enlists hot man Andy Samberg to face-off in a fashion duel of “date looks” to see if Elle editors prefer Zee’s conceptual high-fashion stylings, or if they vote for Mr. Dick in a Box’s horndog looks. The results? Both hilarious and surprising! Keep reading »

What Would Michael Say? Ed Hardy To Launch His Clothing Collection

Before his untimely passing, pop icon Michael Jackson was in talks with Christian Audigier, the man behind Ed Hardy clothing, to debut his own collection. THe conversations began when Michael tapped Audigier to design his costumes for his final tour, “This Is It.” Audigier revealed on the Today show earlier this week that, while no contracts were signed, the duo discussed in detail what the collection would look like. Audigier and his team presented Jackson with sketches for t-shirts, jackets, gloves and other accessories. They even had items priced. For example, a jacket based on Michael’s iconic Thriller video would cost $500 (before his death, the jacket was set at $250). [The Cut] Keep reading »

Osama Tees and “Anorexic Legs” Stockings Not So Cute

Every now and again a young designer comes along and gives us hope for the future of the industry. Today, Swede Ida Pyk is not one of them. Though we imagine the intention behind her Osama Bin Laden tees and “anorexic legs” tights was ironic, unfortunately, they’re a bit of a FAIL in that department. Call us crazy, but something about a kid holding machine gun ammo just turns us off… [Refinery 29]

More looks after the jump, and you tell us, irony stretched to its limits or just plain offensive? Keep reading »

The Queen Of Queens? Anna To Make Awkward Store Appearance

So, we are already cringing at thoughts of Vogue editor and fashion royal Anna Wintour addressing the masses at Macy’s in the New York borough of Queens, of all places. The collision of these two worlds is guaranteed to be the stuff good reality shows are made of. (Too bad they’re no longer filming the soon-to-be released documentary “The September Issue.”) Wintour will be joined by designer and “Project Runway” host Michael Kors on September 10 at the department store, where the duo will be on hand to showcase fall trends and sign t-shirts for the first 50 folks in line. The appearance kicks off the city-wide launch of Fashion’s Night Out, a multi-day “shopping” event meant to jump-start fall retail sales across the country. [Racked]

Question is, will Wintour pull a Cintra Wilson and write about how disturbingly “middle-class” Macy’s is in her next editor’s letter? Only time will tell. Keep reading »

The Gap Ganks Its Latest Ad Campaign From American Apparel

The hilarious part of this is that a quick glance at this new Gap ad will only send interested customers running to the rival they ripped off. (In fairness, they did add a dash of Calvin Klein, circa the Brooke Shields days.) Back to the drawing board! [AdWeek via Scanner] Keep reading »

The Road To It Girl-dom

It’s no easy path to scoring a Nylon cover or being snapped by Kathy Lo. No no, you have to work at it, and by work at it we mean be too rich, too thin, party often and hard, be pretty, stylish–oh, and it doesn’t hurt if mama was good-looking (i.e. a model) and daddy was a rolling stone. Literally. But, should these parameters feel too constricting, don’t give up hope! There are ways to circumvent fate and genetics, sort of. Our friends over at Refinery 29 have put together a handy little chart that will help you navigate the fame game and plot your own path to It Girl status. Next thing you know, you’ll like, have your own perfume and TV show and stuff. Could ya just!? Er, good luck ladies. You’ll need it. [Refinery 29] Keep reading »
