Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
So, the editors don’t actually have time to stop and sip them, but all kinds of somehow-got-in-the-door-but-why-are-they-here? types in the tents are swilling free booze in between doing whatever it is they’re doing in there. What are they drinking? We know we’ve spotted Moet here and there, but the harder stuff is Akvinta Vodka, the official sponsor of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week. The cocktail they’re serving is called the “Gold Cooler” and it actually sounds really good. Just for fun — it’s always happy hour somewhere! — we thought we’d share the recipe, after the jump.

“I was holding it together by a string and a paper clip in the fall and winter. I didn’t know if I could keep it all together… You console yourself by saying it’s all a deepening process. But it’s wired. After the first year, the pain is less intense; it’s less immediate. But the magical thinking goes away too. And that’s a whole new reckoning. But every time I really miss him and wonder where he’s gone, I just look at [Mathilda.] …
‘Brokeback Mountain’ was an unrepeatable moment in time, a very charmed time in my life. I was in love; I was in a movie I was proud to be a part of, and with a beautiful brand-new baby. Everything was good in that moment ….
I feel hopeful and grateful. For a while I thought we had lost everything. It makes you want to love better and live better.”

Brittany “Bre” Scullark, an “America’s Next Top Model” Cycle Five semi-finalist, was arrested in NYC yesterday for disorderly conduct. She argued with a woman in a Starbucks who claimed Bre had taken her laptop and wouldn’t give it back. Bre claims she wasn’t trying to steal the woman’s laptop. She thought it belonged to a relative who was with her. When the woman asked for it back, Bre became rowdy and spewed a string of expletives and insults, insisting the laptop belonged to her family member. The police were called, and she was taken into custody and issued a summons. Bre will go before a judge at a later date, but this isn’t the first time she’s over-reacted. You may remember the time she poured out another model’s Red Bull because she suspected her of eating her food, during her cycle of “ANTM.” Sadly, Bre isn’t the only “Top Model” with bad manners. In July, we learned Caridee English is a complete slob even when she’s subletting. [TMZ] Keep reading »
Handbag designer Rebecca Minkoff has won over shoppers for years now with her popular “morning after” purse, which is pretty much the perfect bag. So when Minkoff recently expanded her empire to include a small collection of clothing, we were naturally excited. Her fall ready-to-wear line has just been posted on Shopbop, and the designs are fairly strong—although, obviously the power piece is that incredible purple pleated blazer (can’t say we’ve seen a lot like it). The rest of the collection includes tops with buttons and zippers that are placed in ways mirroring RM’s handbags, as well as some softer items like a vintage-y polka dot blouse and a floral robe dress.
Only thing is, the collection is expensive. Like, really expensive. Perhaps Minkoff just knows that if her cult clients put down for a bag, they’d be just as pumped for clothes as well. What do you think? [Shopbop.com] Keep reading »
