Trend Alert: Sunglasses-Inspired Jewelry

This summer staple is enjoying newfound attention from designers who have created fun new accessories inspired by shades. Our favorite so far are from A’N'D, which sells Wrist Shade Bracelets, bangles cut from sunglass lenses. Their Grey Neckshade Necklace (above), also features nearly a dozen charms which look like broken shades. (Log on to Creature Comforts to find these pieces on sale right now.) While you’re at it, log on to Odd and Even NYC, which sells amazing vintage-inspired shades by designer Samantha Smikle. Her Double Chain Faced Shades, $20, are connected to a gold chain link, which means you can wear them as a necklace or in the traditional style of over your eyes to protect your peepers from the sun. So old school!

Says editor-in-chief Franca Sozzani, “Barbie has been an icon for whole generations which is why I really wanted to give a strong sign in step with the times, and dedicate the anniversary issue to Black Barbie.” Huh. Let’s take a closer look, shall we? Keep reading »

The music is always great, his clothes embody bad ass chic, and the models he sends down the runway are hot and extra stomp-y. But it wasn’t always that way. When Wang first started out, he cast his early models from the glamorous halls of Craigslist, home of used bikes, thinly veiled prostitution and those Missed Connections things that my, um, friends sometimes check out when they’re bored.

The Life And Times Of The World’s Richest Women

Susanne Klatten, an heiress to the BMW fortune, may be the 68th richest person in the world, but her life hasn’t been so peachy lately. The German mama of three had a two-month affair with a creep named Helg Sgarbi, who secretly videotaped many of their encounters. Then he and several buddies blackmailed her, demanding $1.13 million and a BMW X5 each or else they would release the tapes. Rather than give these jerks the money, Klatten decided to take her case to the police and risk it going public. A few days ago, the police set up a sting operation, convincing the conspirators that Klatten was handing over the money and cars. Then they arrested the skanky dudes. [Bloomberg]
