Who Needs This Much Luggage?

Karl Lagerfeld likes his possessions in multiples. He has so many iPods that he’s hired an iPod nanny, but now it would seem that he needs a luggage minder as well. The brilliant designer checked out of his New York City hotel room to head back home and paparazzi snapped pictures of his exorbitant number of suitcases–14 in total. Now, for a man who dresses in practically the exact same thing every day, it’s not exactly clear as to why he needs quite so many pieces of luggage. Let’s just hope these 14 cases hold the latest Chanel collection. Apparently, Lagerfeld has never heard of the phrase “pack light.” [Daily Mail] Keep reading »

Changing Clothes Is The New Competitive Sport

I like this Kitsuné fashion video featuring clothes from the designer’s autumn/winter 2010 Ivy League line. While a soundtrack of hip tunes plays, a male mode, Nils, and a female model, Alazne, engage in competitive dressing and undressing. If only I looked like that when I took off my clothes. Sigh.

Street Style Blogs Passe; Vlogs Where It’s At


We’re not ashamed to admit that we’re full-on street style blog addicts. (Although, mainly out of jealousy of their impeccably-dressed subjects.) We’re noticing that the genre is moving to a different level after seeing real-style documentarians move to video platforms, which gives a whole new feeling to street style. We recently came across Vimeo user Jake Davis’s dreamy Test Shot videos, which offer a more poignant look at the featured person’s outfit through slow-mo close-ups and smooth beats. His short movies go beyond the aesthetics of style, and begin to talk more about the person behind the clothes, almost like a mini-narrative. Check it out! [Vimeo] Keep reading »

Christina Aguilera Shares A Hidden Talent In New “Bionic” Photos

See that ring between Christina Aguilera‘s hand? It certainly goes with her Bionic-influenced metal collar, but that ring also has a kinkier purpose. The sickle-shaped ring is actually Betony Vernon’s Petting Ring. It not only holds the index finger and thumb in the perfect chi mudra position, the hand “gesture used in meditation for a one-pointed mind,” but it also gives an extremely pleasant hand job (I hear). Christina likes to get “Dirrty,” so it’s safe to assume that the Petting Ring is more than a prop for her photo shoot. At $1,250 a pop, it better be her favorite toy to use on husband Jordan Bratman.

Shauna Puts The “K” In Klassy

American “actress” and Playboy Playmate Shauna Sand manages to cram a number of trends–the iPhone, trucker cap, lucite stripper heels, animal prints and the it bag–all into one teensy weensy beach outfit. So multi-tasky! [Miami, 3/31/10] Keep reading »

Chanel’s “Paris-Shanghai” Accessories Collection: Made In China?

This winter, Chanel expanded its wardrobe once again by presenting a special collection in Shanghai, replete with Eastern interpretations of the haute couture brand. The line also includes quite a few accessories, due out in stores soon. Here, a glimpse at the offerings: Flashy sequined evening bags, lacquered Chinese doll clutches, and even a purse shaped like a takeout container.

This mainstream stuff isn’t the high-style aesthetic we remember coming down the runway. We hate to say it—but are we the only ones who think that these accessories look more like Chinatown knock-offs? We’re not quite buying it. [HighSnobette.com] Keep reading »
