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 »

Quote Of The Day: Ashton Thanks Angst, Good Looks For His Success

“I walked down, and [fashion photographer] Mario Testino was in the crowd. He’s, like, ‘Who is that boy?’ Why is he walking so angry?’ And then, that started a buzz, and then [photographer] Bruce Weber booked me on an Abercrombie & Fitch shoot the next week. So it was just sort of like I had that moment that just sort of just popped things off.”

Jesus Luz Loves Himself A Little Too Much

The folks behind the new Ona Saez ad campaign made so many questionable, er, “creative decisions” that we’re not sure where to begin. So let’s jump off from the most obvious point: Who approved the concept of a Jesus Luz love-fest? Why did it ever seem like a good idea to turn the Brazilian brand’s ad campaign into one massive blow job homage to Madge‘s boy toy? [Made in Brazil]

Tween Fashion Blogger Tavi Lands POP Magazine Cover

Our favorite tween fashion blogger Tavi may not have scored the cover of Love, but it looks like she has landed on the latest issue of POP magazine, whose first relaunch issue under new editor Dasha Zhukova is due out soon. The black and white cover shows the Style Rookie blogger wearing some rad sequined shorts in front of a Damien Hirst background. We can’t say for sure whether this cover is official—it was posted on Grazia’s blog this morning (a pretty credible source), but the link has disappeared. The pic, however, is starting to make the rounds, so we’re assuming it’s a leak. Either way, we’re happy to see the smart and wacky Tavi gaining recognition. [Fashion Copious] Keep reading »

Are You An Agent Provocateur Or Victoria’s Secret Kind Of Gal?

Now that fancy British underwear brand Agent Provocateur is invading New York Fashion Week, we’re going to have to pick our allegiances: Is your loyalty to American mainstay Victoria’s Secret or Agent Provocateur, home to all things even vaguely kinky? Here are a few points to consider as you choose sides… Keep reading »

Betsey Johnson Releases Awesome Vintage Runway Footage

If you love to watch old runway videos as much as I do, has Betsey Johnson got a treat for us today! The designer just posted her runway archives, which, even if you’re not a huge fan of hers, are amazing for the following reasons: a.) They are a fascinating glimpse back at some crazy shows before Fashion Week became this colossal commercial entity; b.) They remind us that her dresses were what all the cool girls were wearing during the ’80s; and c.) Her sense of fun and whimsy hasn’t changed over the years. You won’t see stompy, sad-eyed models moping down a Betsey catwalk, and to this day the designer still does a cartwheel at the end of the presentation. Can’t imagine her colleague, Carolina Herrera, doing that — ya know? Enjoy the vid above, which starts out with the amazing, groundbreaking-back-in-the-day black supermodel Pat Cleveland freakin’ working it. Watch the rest here.

Artist Carves Faces Out Of Fashion Magazines

We here at Der Frisky are loving these amazing carved fashion magazine artworks by Nate Page. We’re not entirely sure how he reconstructs these deconstructed glossy pages, but it involves “drawing and assemblage,” and the results are beautiful and haunting. Here, he appears to have carved the face out of Naomi Watts on the cover of Vogue Australia to creepy cool effect, leaving nothing but the eyes staring out. I used to keep all my magazines, until they stood in towering stacks. It’s lovely to see someone make art out of what we stare at that stares back at us.
