Is This The New Face Of Chanel?

There’s a rumor flying around that the fashion world is calling “huge.” After Tommy Ton of style blog Jak & Jil got a supposedly juicy tip—”I received some news tonight that is going to SHAKE the fashion world in the next two days. CRAZY!!!”—the speculation commenced. The general consensus: That Lanvin designer Alber Elbaz would be replacing Karl Lagerfeld as head designer at Chanel. B-b-but … will he be as mean, ironic, and kooky as Uncle K? What if we can never laugh at or make fun of Chanel again? (We’d live, we suppose.) [Grazia Australia] Keep reading »

H&M On Opening Day Of Sonia Rykiel’s Line: Worst. Job. Ever.


Footage has emerged from the day an H&M store in France put out its new Sonia Rykiel merch. And here you thought French women were so refined. Not so: “Geet your hands off my swetur, beetch. You are too fat for zat, anyhow. Allez, allez!”

We have now seen hell, and it’s a never-ending sentence of being an H&M employee on this day. Look how they book it to avoid the stampede! People, un peu de calme, please! [YouTube] Keep reading »

Where Do You Shop For Black-Tie Appropriate Dresses?

With the arrival of spring comes the start of wedding season. For me, this has meant lots of frantic dress shopping because I have several nuptials to attend, and, unfortunately, two of them require black-tie attire.

I thought that, as a society, we were getting more casual when it comes to clothes. We don’t dress up when we ride airplanes. Not everyone puts on their “Sunday best” to attend church services. And we can wear jeans to see shows on Broadway. So, what’s with all the fancy weddings? I can’t figure it out — and I really don’t know what to wear. Keep reading »

Fake Uggs Are Super Dangerous!?

While we recently learned just how bad platform shoes are for our feet and backs, we never expected to hear the same about plush sheepskin boots. It’s a little unclear what the difference between regular Uggs and the plethora of knockoffs out there is, if any, but according to Dr. Ian Drysdale, the Head of the British College of Osteopathic Medicine, wearers of the trendy boots are doing the “‘Ugg shuffle’–a lopsided, pigeon-toed walk caused by the unsupportive nature of the shoe, and just six months of wear could cause serious damage that can be difficult to repair.” The lack of structure forces feet to splay, flattening the arch and causing potential foot, ankle and hip problems. (This is perhaps of greatest concern for growing kids, whose parents deck them out in these when it’s too cold for Crocs.) Sheesh. Now wearing those comfy shoes isn’t just a sartorial felony, it’s a back problem waiting to happen. What the hell are we supposed to wear now? Orthopedic shoes? [Daily Mail] Keep reading »

I Want Jennifer Aniston’s Jacket

Dear Jennifer Aniston, I’m really sorry I made fun of your belly shirt last week. I was in a bad mood I guess. Anyhoo, I take it all back, because this gray jacket is perfection! Is that Vivienne Westwood Red Label? I think it is, and it’s awfully sharp how the bottoms of your Louboutins match. Chic! xo, e
PS. Glad you tossed the midriff-baring tee. [NYC, 3/15/10] Keep reading »

Madonna Gets Together With Dolce & Gabbana, Produces Sunglasses

Ah, Madonna. So elusive. So enigmatic. So impenetrable. If only she weren’t wearing those dark sunglasses all the time! Then maybe we would know her. Or perhaps not. If you want to throw shade like the Material Girl, you can now, thanks to the fact that Miss M and Dolce & Gabbana are collaborating on a line of sunglasses. The brand-within-a-brand will be called MDG (which sort of sounds like a gyno office, but whatever), the shades will go for $248 to $289 a pair, and the sexy campaign was shot by Steven Klein (natch). “[Madonna] is very exacting and a professional who seeks perfection in everything she does, and this was no exception,” spews Stefano Gabbana. But will wearing them make you super famous? Maybe. [WWD] Keep reading »
