Those of us golden oldies who can remember Claudia Schiffer‘s Guess modeling days (and may or may not have had said ads plastered on our walls next to Kate Moss’s Calvin Klein tearouts back in the day) did a double take when we saw the supermodel’s new ad campaign for Fashion Targets Breast Cancer, at right. Obviously, the more important thing here is that you should waste no time supporting the cause by shopping the collection — 30 percent of proceeds go to FTBC. But before you go, please take a moment to marvel at how a little lighting, a great photographer (Mario Testino), Photoshop, and designer genes can shave off a few decades. Wow. Keep reading »
Mark your calendars, set your alarms, and write some Post-It note reminders, because you won’t want to miss this shopping opportunity. On Apr. 16, The Outnet is celebrating their very first birthday, and in order to show some love to their devoted fans and customers, the site is offering a major sale and seriously slashing prices. Apparently, all day on April 16, you’ll find designer clothes, shoes, bags, and more on sale for just ONE DOLLAR. Yeeaah, really, $1. (That’s 1,625 Balmain T-shirts!) And to add to the birthday fun, one lucky winner will have the chance to shop with a personal stylist. So far, there are no details on just what designer items will be available for $1, but holy smackers! We’re excited. [The Outnet] Keep reading »
Is it just us, or did Leona Lewis look like a Lady Gaga copycat at Perez Hilton’s birthday? Sorry, lady, but we prefer your sexy diva look to this new drunken clown thing. [The Cut] Keep reading »
Last night, on the season finale of “Kell on Earth,” DNKY hired Kelly Cutrone’s team to produce a short viral video, since fashion is embracing the internet as the wave of the future. With a limited budget and only a day to shoot a short film, Kelly wrangled the camera guys, models, and PR girls while dealing with time restraints and police issues — all to show the world the power of a Cozy. So, just what is this object? Essentially, it’s simply a wrap sweater that comes in a variety of colors. But the key is to get crafty with your Cozy and learn to tie it in a bunch of different ways. You’ll show off your DIY skills and fashion styling sense, plus you’ll get to be part of Kelly’s power girl army she dreamed up for the video. Each Cozy retails for $195, but you can get your own 10 percent off today by becoming a member of DKNY. [The Recessionista] Keep reading »
Betsey Johnson never fails to deliver when it comes to making super fun yet utterly feminine clothing. However, this particular skirt (part of her Opening Ceremony collection) not only cries out Betsey, but we think it’s perfect when trying to conceal any tummy bulge. You know, if we cared about that sort of thing.
“Whether you’re thin, fat, small, dark, blond, redhead, you wanna be something else. I wanted a fairy godmother to make me look like Marilyn Monroe. I had no boobs, no hips, and I wanted it desperately.”
– Twiggy, on how even the most iconic supermodels of all time fall prey to “the grass is always greener” syndrome. [AP] Keep reading »
