Make Karl Lagerfeld And Marc Jacobs Carry Your Groceries

Karl Lagerfeld and Marc Jacobs are fashion gods — legends in their own time, even. But they aren’t so chic that they can’t help you run errands. These tote bags, designed by Pattern People and sold by Hint magazine, immortalize the Kaiser and the King of Grunge in black ink and natural cotton canvas. We plan to bring Karl Lagerfeld along to Trader Joe’s with us and make him do the heavy lifting, carrying our copious amounts of almonds and guac up to our fourth floor walk-up.

Quote Of The Day: Bee Shaffer Rebels Against Anna Wintour

“I really don’t want to work in fashion. It’s just not for me. I respect her, obviously, but it’s just a really weird industry … She wants me to be an editor. I would never put it down, but I just don’t want to take it too seriously. People in there act like fashion is life. It’s really amusing, but if that’s your career — there are other things out there, seriously … I think I want to be a lawyer.”

—Bee Shaffer explains that despite mom Anna Wintour‘s hopes for her, she’s not too keen on going into the family business, possibly making her the only person who has ever dared to defy the devil in Prada. How very Saffy from “Ab Fab” of her! [Fox News] Keep reading »

Poof! Sienna Miller’s Flaws Get Photoshopped Away

Sienna Miller has a few “spots” that could use a bit of a makeover, or so says famed fashion photographer Mario Testino. We’ve all heard how her head was famously Photoshopped onto a different shot of her body for Vogue‘s 2007 September issue. Now, actual video clips of Mario Testino from R. J. Cutler’s documentary, “The September Issue,” (out August 28th!) have surfaced in which he explicitly points out every single thing on her that “needs” to be Photoshopped. [Defamer] Keep reading »

Do You Prefer Heels Or Flats?

Despite all the outlandishly high heels designers like Rodarte, Nina Ricci, and John Galliano put on the runway for fall, The Times has declared heels dead. As proof of this trend, the paper cites a survey from department store Selfridges that reports a 20 percent increase in sales of flat shoes and the story of a company that banned high heels for health reasons. Even though a few other New York designers favored flats for fall, we’re not so sure we agree heels are dead per se, especially because I’d like to get out of these flat sandals I’ve been wearing for months.

Which do you prefer: heels or flats? Keep reading »

Quick Pic: Kate Moss Says “No Pants, No Problem”

Kate Moss continues her gig as spokesmodel for Just Cavalli in the new Mert and Marcus-shot fall 2009 campaign. As in the spring ads, they love to have some menfolk in the mix, but this time around she’s been downgraded from two male models to one. Does the recession know no bounds!? Oh, wait. Hold on. We’ve got a lurker back there on the stairs. Carry on, then. [Fashion Week Daily] Keep reading »

Would You Rock It With Kitty Earbuds?

In case you haven’t heard, ears are the new “it” body part. Fittingly, the days of discreet earbuds are over, and now it’s time to rock your earbuds wild-style. These earphones are manufactured by a Japanese company called Thanko and come paired with a set of furry cat ears in pink or black. While you’re rocking out to, well, whatever it is you rock out to, you can prance around in the attached cat ears and shake your tail like a kitty. Or, you know, they’re perfect for “cat ear fetishists who need an excuse to wear cat ears in public.” Whatever floats your boat! Would you rock it? [Boing Boing Gadgets] Keep reading »

We Are Agog Over Lady Gaga’s Hairpiece

Has Lady Gaga been taking style inspiration from The Frisky? Maybe! The wacky fashion-loving pop star went on a Japanese television show to perform an acoustic version of “Poker Face” while wearing this elephant-shaped hair sculpture. We recognized it instantly as one of the Nagi Noda creations that we discovered a few weeks ago. The Japanese artist (who died last year) made, among other pop-art pieces, these animal-shaped headpieces molded out of human hair. Should have known that something so bizarre would turn up in Lady Gaga’s wardrobe, naturally. [NY Mag, TheFrisky] Keep reading »

Photographer David LaChapelle Leaves New York, Takes Up Nudity

David LaChapelle does not take your average celebrity pictures. Rather, if he’s shooting Pam Anderson, she’s naked, prostrate, and covered in stars, but, you know, in a way that’s comfortable for her. Not even Jesus can escape LaChapelle’s provocative lens. But he’s done with all that now. Apparently, all the museum exhibits and glamorous parties around the world have lost their luster. His surprising new career turn, after the jump… Keep reading »

Let’s Put An End To The Designer Dolls

Designers Christophe Decarnin of Balmain, Proenza Schouler, Christopher Kane, Rick Ownes, and Alber Elbaz of Lanvin, along with 295 others, have dressed Jason Wu dolls for a charity auction to benefit AIDS and breast cancer charities. The auction will take place at Jeffrey’s during New York Fashion Week. It’s true that these dolls were “created” by some of fashion’s heavy-hitters and are for charity, but I don’t see why they’re expected to fetch upwards of $250. The doll clothing and props aren’t remarkable. In fact, the dolls look like rejects from the Barbie collections actually created by Byron Lars. Designer dolls are no longer a novelty, so it’s time for this fundraising ploy to be retired. I say designers shouldn’t attempt to create or dress a doll unless they have the time and resources to make her as fabulous as she should be. [LuisaAviaRoma.com] Keep reading »

Quick Pic: May We Suggest Some More Weather-Appropriate Footwear?

Hermes debuted their A/W 2009 ad campaign featuring Raquel Zimmermann at the Ice Hotel in Sweden. We assume this is her real foot. Or does it belong to a stand-in? [Fashionologie] Keep reading »
