Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
Fashion Week is totally the appropriate time to premiere a movie about one of the industry’s most famous designers. “Coco Avant Chanel” (or “Coco Before Chanel” for those who refuse to speak French) premiered last night and everyone who attended dressed as if Coco herself would be passing judgment. Keep clicking to see what Audrey Tatou, Rachel Bilson, Agyness Deyn, and Estelle wore.
Forever 21 debuted their “Twist” line online today, which they call “Fashion With A Twist Of Punk!” I love shopping at Forever 21 so I checked it out. I found a very cute swing-y, satiny gray skirt ($19.80) I love and a shiny, black-and-gray striped strapless dress ($24.80) that’d be cute to wear out dancing. But really, the Forever 21 Twist clothes are about as authentically “punk” as Avril Lavigne is … which is to say they’d have Sid Vicious rolling in his grave. Let me tell you how it is, young mall rats: Real punks would and do not shop at Forever 21. Real punks ripped their own clothes up. Real punks pierced themselves with safety pins and didn’t cry about it. Real punks rolled in their own piss on the floor at CBGB. Got it? [Forever 21 Twist] Keep reading »
I don’t know about you guys, but this has already been the longest week ever and I could use a vacay. But since that’s out of the question, we’ll have to take a vacation with our minds. What better way to do that than indulge in some trashy tabloid drama? We did the dirty work and packaged the headlines in short, easy-to-read blurbs, cause we like you that much!
The rise of teen fashion blogger Tavi continues! And recently, her progress in super-smart-style-awesomeness has multiplied exponentially thanks to her cover on Pop magazine, and now her blogger participation at Fashion Week.
Think all the glitz and fame is going to her head? Teen Vogue caught up with Tavi for a quick interview, and it warmed our hearts to see how humble and independent she remains. Especially when it comes to her outfit—a Miu Miu top (sent by a reader … jealous) with “something that was my mom’s” over it, and then a DIY headpiece made out of guitar straps. Wearing crap on your head, people. It’s in. [TeenVogue.com] Keep reading »
It’s a big day for maltipoos in the news. For Heidi Montag‘s 23rd birthday, Spencer got her a nine-week-old maltipoo pup, who they named Dolly after Ms. Parton. In sadder news, Jessica Simpson‘s sweet maltipoo, Daisy, was snatched by a coyote. She’s offering a reward for the return of the five-year-old doggie, but, like, last time we checked, coyotes don’t snatch dogs to keep them as pets. [People]
Dolly? Daisy? This has me thinking — why do celebrities pick such reasonable names for their pets when they choose completely insane ones for their kids? Here’s a look at some of the worst offenders.
People named its picks for best and worst dressed in the magazine’s latest issue. While we agree that Cameron Diaz looks great in jeans and Kate Winslet never seems to misstep on the red carpet, we do not agree with some of the ladies who made it into the “worst” category, and feel it our duty as Fashion Peacekeepers (as opposed to Fashion Police) to defend them. Click through to see the controversial dressers whom we admire for being so daring.
The pants-less one is making it very hard for us to stay obsessed with her disco heaven. After making the fashion crowd wait around at Hiro for what felt like hours, Lady Gaga finally took the stage at the Marc Jacobs after-party late into the night and played for 10 minutes. Yes, only 10.
For round two of her Fashion Week appearances the following night, Out magazine not only honored her with a cover of their September issue, but an entire party at The Box. A line around the block greeted revelers, but by 9:30 the doors were closed and inside was a hot, sweaty dance party, filled to the brim with boys in all states of undress and dance moves. Between the Veuve Clicquot and 10 Cane rum drinks, everyone was having a brilliant time, enjoying dance-offs and Fashion Week chats. Slowly, the crowd began to dwindle and the buzz flew from the air as it got later and later. Chants of “Gaga!” started and stopped, to no avail. It goes without saying that it takes a lot for the crowd at The Box to stop dancing. But when a party starts at 8 and the main attraction hasn’t shown her face by 11:30, well, let’s just say that’s when the disco died.
Then, all of a sudden … Keep reading »
When the weather turns crisp, style obsessions turn to fall coats. However, thanks to this Forever 21 design, we’re now finding the idea of the non-coat sexier for in-between weather. The heather grey color, piping, and hefty waist tie make this knit sweater-coat look like a designer number you’d see on chic Fashion Week attendees. Rock it with some biker-esque platform pumps, black cigarette jeans, and huge sunglasses to get that fashion editor vibe. Once the weather gets too cold, make it a casual indoor staple.
