The Naked Cowboy Is Running For Mayor Of New York City

Neither rain, nor snow, nor gloom of night can keep “Naked Cowboy” Robert Burck from strumming his guitar in his undies to entertain tourists in New York City. And now the Cowboy wants to show his true devotion to Manhattan—he’s running for mayor. For those of you who have not stood next to the Cowboy’s toned tush, he is a Times Square staple, clad only in tighty-whities, a cowboy hat, and boots. He plays guitar and sings while tourists snap pictures with him. He plans to officially announce his bid for mayor today, and already has plans for raising revenues and tax breaks. His campaign promise is to do “more with less” for NY residents. No problem keeping his promise either—that yummy briefs/boots uniform says it all! [Huffington Post]

Checking off “The Naked Cowboy” on a ballot may seem a bit odd, but we have yet to see what he’s got up his … hat? Hopefully, Robert will fare better than these oddball candidates who failed in their political quests. Keep reading »

French Vogue’s Fashion Primer

vogue paris primer g1 jpg
If you feel as though you need a Fashion 101 crash course, pick up the August issue of Vogue Paris along with a French dictionary. The magazine devotes 65 pages — produced with the help of two photographers, three stylists, a handful of models, and a bevy of hairstylists and makeup artists — to “ADN de la Mode” (“Fashion DNA”), an explanation of what the big-time fashion designers are known for, from Paul Smith’s British-with-a-twist style to Calvin Klein’s easy attitude.

And, not only does this story give the lay of the fashion land, but it also brings to light why Daria Werbowy is on the mag’s cover decked out in head-to-toe Burberry. The cover photo comes from the same photo shoot.

If you want to go to the head of the class (or get a front row seat at Fashion Week), might we suggest making flashcards out of these glossy pages? [via Fashion Gone Rogue]

Love Nest: Is That Chair Proenza Schouler?

Attention, Proenza fans: Fashion It duo Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough have come out with a textile collection for interiors mega-company Knoll that’s dark and dramatic—and mostly, it seems, inspired by their past collections. Think rich jewel tones, a range of neutrals, classic damask, plus a handful of other patterns and the Proenza favorite color combo of navy and black. Knoll doesn’t list prices, but I have to assume their textiles, like their collection, don’t come cheap. Still, do we like? [Knoll via Domicidal Maniac] Keep reading »
