Ready for more collaboration news? Christina Tang and Dasha Zhukova of Kova & T have decided to bring their styling genius to the trendy yet affordable store of Urban Outfitters. But this isn’t a normal Kova & T collection. In fact, it’s a got a lot less of a motorcycle babe latex feel and a lot more of a girl next door vibe. Read on for a first look at their designs, including a precious skirt, a sweater that you’re sure to live in on hungover Saturday afternoons, and the perfect work dress. Prices range from $58-98, so prepare to shop at Urban Outfitters starting in mid-May. [Lucky] Keep reading »
Anyone catch “America’s Next Top Model,” the vampire edition? While I’m shocked they never thought to do this before (like back when vampires were a huge craze and stuff?), I am super glad they waited until Andre Leon Talley was on the show and could call out specific moments of “dreckitude” involved in shooting these looks.

It’s Thursday. Officially the most frustrating day of the week. We see you “reading” those reports. Because you’re going to give into procrastination (we already did, granted, this is kinda our job), check out H&M‘s Fashion Studio, an online tool that lets you choose a model, and dress her up in any number of outfits from the spring collection. Choose from clothing, outerwear, accessories, and shoes. And for the really detail-oriented, you can even see underwear and sock choices. We do have to say–this clever little styling program is a bit of a tease … because when will H&M ever provide e-commerce? We’re waiting for the day, so we can avoid getting killed in a horrifying Sonia Rykiel stampede like this one. [HM.com] Keep reading »
Brooklyn is kind of the birthplace of numerous hipster trends. Why, the streets of “artist” neighborhood Williamsburg were flooded with mustached men in skinny jeans and girls who looked like American Apparel models long before these unfortunate looks trickled down to the masses. So what’s the next big craze? No, it’s not tie-dye (over before it began) or ironically Bedazzled denim: Behold, the beloved-from-childhood coonskin cap. On a recent expedition across the pond known as the East River, a group of brave Gawker reporters couldn’t walk the city streets without running into one of these bad boys. One guy explained that he was going for a “nouveau Johnny Cash-meets-Bono look” (omg), while a young lady cited the benefits of the tail, claiming she could wave it at people she thinks are “cute.” Let’s just hope the slowly warming weather nips this trend in the bud, hey? (Also, I am sorry to report that this is not an April Fool’s thing. At least, I don’t think so.) [Gawker] Keep reading »
Lady Gaga kind of has an unfair advantage when it comes to making headlines—girl is so crazy that even the most whack claims are plausible. “Gaga Marries Siberian Goldfish”? Sure. “Lady Gaga Claims She Was Raised On Alien Colony”? We could see that. So when we saw the following news item this morning—”Lady Gaga To Design Collection For Alexander McQueen”—we didn’t for a second doubt it and thought, Whoa, we’re gonna have some awesome blogging material once pics of this come out.
