Catfight! Stella McCartney Versus Bono’s Wife

Apparently, Bono‘s wife, Ali Hewson, isn’t as charitable a soul as her husband. The UK’s Daily Mail is reporting that the claws have come out—and Stella McCartney is the target! Ali and her business partner, Bryan Meehan, have a company called Nude Skincare and are feeling cranky about the name of Stella’s new fragrance, “Stella Nude,” an eau de toilette version of her Stella perfume. To court they go, over a single word, and in the process, will spend boatloads because their skincare line may be confused with the fashion designer’s perfume. Bono: Talk some sense into wifey!

Happy Anniversary, Woodstock! Hippie Chic Is Back

WWD came up with a fun project to help celebrate Woodstock’s 40th anniversary. Because designers have been long-inspired by hippie style, they asked several young designers–including current fashion darling Alexander Wang and Jeremy Laing–to sketch their own interpretations of hippie chic. We’re especially fond of Prabal Gurung’s fantastical skirt made up of music fans from the Woodstock crowd and Peter Som’s flowing two-piece frock surrounded by colorful swirls. Totally psychedelic, indeed. Check their site to see the full slideshow. [WWD] Keep reading »

Quick Pic: Harem Pants To The Extreme

We came around on the harem pants trend. We even found five reasons to wear them. Then, we came across the ultimate harem pants. If the crotch on the regular kind isn’t low enough, these super Hammer Pants might do the trick. The inseam? Two inches. They’re Snuggies for your legs! [gsus via The Fashion Police] Keep reading »

Is That A Fetus Or Your Purse?

Style hunter Trend de la Creme shines a spotlight on one of the strangest purses I’ve ever seen. Created by James Piatt, it’s called “The Foundling,” and it’s … well, it looks like a fetus to me. Piatt says the piece is “designed to symbolize an infant that has been deserted,” and it comes with four “charms,” an airplane, a pack of cigarettes, a well, and an open window. The charms represent “significant babies”: Charles Lindberg Jr., Britney’s firstborn, Baby Jessica, and Michael Jackson’s son Prince. It’s made of copper mirror leather, so it’s sure to be a jaw-dropper. Maybe not something you’d want to take into the delivery room, though. [Trend de la Creme] Keep reading »

Heidi Klum’s Jewelry Line Goes Bust

Heidi Klum could have used a real four-leaf clover. The gold ones she peddled in her Heidi Klum Collection have gotten her two-year-old line jewelry shuttered. Van Cleef & Arpels, the French jeweler who owns the rights to the symbol, unleashed their legal hounds on Klum, accusing the model’s company of copyright infringement. To avert a costly lawsuit, Klum decided to close shop. Maybe this is further proof that models and celebs really should leave designing to the pros and stick with what they do best. Keep reading »

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 »
