It’s officially beach season and I plan to spend hours reading trashy novels and soaking up the sun. But I have no intention of speeding up the wrinkling process. While lounging, I protect my skin with tons of sunblock and my own little patch of shade. This simple straw hat is a must-have for happy, safe, and stylish sunbathing wherever the season may take you.
“I dislike men in fashion. I don’t like it when a man dresses as a fashionista. I don’t think it’s attractive at all. Women in fashion, on the other hand, are very attractive. Women can always make you dream.”
–Vogue Italia editor Franca Sozzani, expressing yet another one of her controversial opinions on all things fashion. That’s okay Franca, you can send them all on to me. [
Linda Farrow is known for taking eyewear to … different places. Now she has teamed up with American designer Jeremy Scott to create the most ridiculous and pointless pair of (non) sunglasses we’ve ever seen. Why opt for shades with UV protectant lenses when you can just cover half your face with a giant pair of stranger hands? And good luck seeing anything at all through the Hooker Red manicure. They may look like a street vendor special, but oh no–these frames range from $260-$355. We Do Not Want, but if you do, go to Farrow’s online boutique and get them before Amber Rose buys them all.

Proving that she’ll take her very successful House of Harlow 1960 brand as far as demand will allow, Nicole Richie has added a collection of handbags to her fashion and accessories brand. The handbag line, which includes everything from crocodile clutches to large leather bags, has the bohemian vibe Nicole is known for. The concept behind the collection was to contrast luxury with casual, using young calf hair and relaxed vintage leathers. But skins aren’t the only focus–great attention was also paid to the hardware. Gold and black studs adorn the larger bags, and jaguar heads close clutches. The line is slated to arrive in stores mid-July, and seems to have something for every woman, a goal Nicole said she had in mind while designing. Prices will range from $150 to $625.

Rarely do we come across a photo of a woman that scares the bejesus out of us. But this photo of Marc Jacobs in drag does the trick. If we were walking down the street and this woman was coming towards us, we’d cross the street. We’d fear she smelled like cat urine or worse, might try to scratch our eyes out in a rage, or try to poison us with an apple. Let’s hope MJ doesn’t continue to indulge his cross-dressing cravings.
