“Karl Lagerfeld is dead!” “Terrorists at the Met Gala!” “Kate Moss ate foie gras!”
Missed these headlines from the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala? You can find them all in the latest edition of WWWWD (not to be confused with WWD), the Onion-esque fake newsletter that pokes fun at the fashion world. In the Met Ball Special, WWWWD reports that Karl Lagerfeld was thought dead due to the death of a German farmer with the same name, and caused a stir when he showed up alive: “… Anna Wintour threw herself at his feet, crying ‘I’m sorry I never respond to your Evites!’ while kissing his shiny patent toes, Karl claimed to have been ‘a touch surprised.’” Other news includes a Tweet roundup (Mario Testino: “@gwyneth’s place. blaming my farts on apple. must quit cheese”), a report on Blake Lively’s new gender-neutral fragrance, and model Erin Wasson’s crack addict date.
What? WWWWD offended you? Jeez, why does fashion always have to be so serious? Really, what’s so important about fash — oh crap, Anna Wintour is barreling towards us with a pointy stiletto and her razor-sharp haircut. [WWWWD: Met Ball Special] Keep reading »
Kate Moss has agreed to write a “no-holds barred” autobiography, which will be published by Virgin Books. Richard Branson, who has been friends with Kate since she was 15 and owns a stake in Virgin Books, says the book will contain not only salacious details about Kate’s life, but also anecdotes about her celebrity friends. The book deal, which is valued at an estimated $1.5 million, was agreed upon way back in 2006, but publication was delayed to let Kate repair her reputation after she got busted on camera snorting cocaine.
After the jump, the questions we want Kate to answer. If they’re not addressed, we’ll expect a full refund from Barnes & Noble. Keep reading »
Colored denim hasn’t been in style since the ’90s, so it may seem intimidating to adopt. But have no fear! All you have to do is keep the outfit simple, let the denim be the key feature, and if you add another color into the mix, make sure it’s the same hue saturation as the denim. Got it?

Demi Moore and Rumer Willis
Famous moms tend to beget famous children. But these sons and daughters are getting attention for their work, not their lineage.
These days, sending a letter through the mail comes off as quaint (unless, of course, it’s a bill, in which case it’s annoying). Try these LCD notecards to make your letters feel less old fashioned. For ‘80s enthusiasts and people with bad handwriting, these multipurpose greeting cards let you send a message that’s crafty and futuristic. All you need to do is let grooves in the grid of these 2 x 8 squares guide a colored marker to make the letters. The goods are created by Yellow Owl Workshop, a San Francisco company that uses recycled paper. We like the stationery for writing thank you letters, especially for saying, “Domo arigato, Mr. Roboto.” [$5, Urban Outfitters] Keep reading »
