“I have a hard time not buying or stealing. If I want something, I have to have it … I used to steal more. I mostly stole from Goodwill. You know, ‘Can’t be bothered. The line’s too long. Put it in your purse.’”

Beth Ditto the now famous Karl Lagerfeld-approved singer, explaining her penchant for helping herself to a few new garments of clothing [Paper] Keep reading »

Stand Down PETA, Angie’s Bag Made From Horse Haircuts

Um, PR crisis averted? If the $5000 Akris horsehair purse wasn’t the it bag of the season, it will be now. Angelina Jolie was spotted traipsing around Venice sporting hers (you can just barely see it and it’s a rather fetching shade of ecru), but lest you think she’ll wear any old luxury item on her famous arm, she did her homework first. She had her stylist phone the Swiss design house to make sure the origin of the horsehair was ethical in nature. According to WWD: “’We told her horses get haircuts just like we do,’ Akris designer Albert Kriemler said of the bag, which is made with hair from horse tails.” Uh-huh, that’s what they told her anyway. Shew! But can you imagine being so paranoid about stirring up controversy that you have to vet your purse before you leave the house? Then again, maybe she truly is concerned about those lil’ old ponies. Let’s hope it’s the latter. [WWD] Keep reading »

Why People Look So Good When The Weather Gets Great

After record rainfall here in the Northeast this month, New Yorkers are looking forward to what promises to be a fantastic weekend — full sun and temps in the 70s! One of the best things about this time of year is planning cute outfits to wear — your legs! you can finally show your legs! and your feet! and even your shoulders! Perhaps even better than that, though, is seeing all the exposed skin on other people. Seriously, after months of everyone hiding under bulky layers, is there anything better than that moment we shed those layers for good — well, at least for the next few months — and show off what we actually look like again? And wow, doesn’t everyone look hot? Gawker recently had a great round-up of the six reasons people look so fine this time of year. Check it out — the reasons aren’t always what you’d think of.

Madonna Used Child Labor To Create New Fashion Line

We’ll have to wait until August to see Madonna‘s much-hyped new fashion brand, MG icon, but we had to wonder why the Material Girl chose to launch with a junior’s line at Macy’s instead of, say, a more sophisticated collection at Barneys. Turns out, it was all a matter of convenience: In a recent AP interview, Madonna claimed that daughter Lourdes was the brains behind the threads: “Really she does most of the work, honestly.” And she told “Access Hollywood” that Lourdes comes in to start working while she’ll “sit back and watch.” Well, alrighty then. Lourdes is only 13, but she does have a killer fashion sense, and designing clothes beats the chores we used to have to do. And we have to admire Madonna’s cajones on this one, as opposed to all these stars denying they ripped off their so-called designs lately. Instead of lying about it, just put it all out there. You’ll sleep better at night. [NBC New York] Keep reading »
