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 »

What do Kanye West, famed fashion photographer Mario Testino, Vogue France editor Carine Roitfeld, and New York Times reporter Cathy Horyn all have in common? They all heart photo blogger Scott Schuman. Like, a lot. Keep reading »

The Ray-Ban Virtual Mirror

Ray-Ban has gone one step above the paper doll concept of online dressing rooms by offering a downloadable program that allows you to try on sunglasses in a virtual mirror. The image is taken straight from your web cam, and you can move with it, which is pretty genius considering that up until now we never would have risked buying sunglasses online. We can only imagine how this could evolve for the clothing industry. It would be beyond amazing if we could stand in front of our web cam in our undies and be able to virtually try on clothes!

The Only Sun Hat You Will Need This Summer

We all know UV rays (the fake kind or the real deal) don’t do us any favors. Wrinkles are one thing, but, more distressingly, sun exposure ups our chances of getting skin cancer. What you might not have considered is how important hats can be when it comes to preventing sun damage. Allow me to introduce your favorite new must-have summer accessory. This Lauren Moffatt-designed canvas hat with gold grommets is guaranteed to not only cover up your face but your neck too from those dastardly UV rays. Leave it to the creator of easy, summer dresses to come up with the perfect, face-saving solution—and it’s all for charity! One hundred percent of the proceeds will go to The Skin Cancer Foundation.

The Fashion Trend That’s Got To Stop: Too Many Fashion Weeks

Oh. Dear. God. Today’s news from the fashion cosmos? It’s the beginning of Fashion Week—in Baltimore. I wish I were kidding. Just like we had a few ideas about how to make the New York shows better, I have a thought on all of these regional fashion weeks: Stop putting them on! Sure, I sort of see the reasons behind a Los Angeles Fashion Week (well, I do if Lauren Conrad and every celeb “designer” in the world isn’t invited to show), a Sao Paulo Week (hot Brazilians in swimsuits!) and, of course, the less-commercial London one (Temperley, Jonathan Saunders, Matthew Williamson are all headed back to their geographic roots next season), but, come on, Baltimore Fashion Week? Apparently, twenty-eight designers have signed up. The week’s schedule: eco-friendly apparel on Monday (today), ready-to-wear on Tuesday, punk/gothic/dark on Wednesday, avant-garde on Thursday, and couture on Friday. On the other hand, if I were a fashion-obsessed Maryland resident, I’d be really stoked. Are you sick of too many Fashion Weeks or do you wish there was one in your city?
