Potential Surprise Celebrity Guests At Fashion’s Night Out

From Anna Wintour‘s imminent trip to Queens to stores staying open until 11pm (gasp), odd/fun news regarding Fashion’s Night Out is cropping up every day. But today brought with it by far the strangest new info. Apparently Rosie O’Donnell will be reading from Nora and Delia Ephron’s new book, Love, Loss and What I Wore at the Giorgio Armani store…[New York Post]

After taking a few minutes to process this news and weave a complicated mental web or reasoning as to why Rosie O’Donnell is participating in Fashion’s Night Out, we got to thinking about which other surprise guests we don’t normally associate with fashion might be making an appearance. Our ideas after the jump. Keep reading »

Fashion! Disaster! Miranda Kerr Temporarily Blinded By Perfume

At a Victoria’s Secret “Heavenly Enchanted” perfume launch this weekend, Victoria’s Secret model and girlfriend of Orlando Bloom, Miranda Kerr, was temporarily blinded when former “Bachelor” and “Dancing with the Stars” cast member Melissa Rycroft “accidentally” sprayed perfume in her face. Apparently Melissa felt really bad for handicapping the Australian model. [NY Post]

It’s really hard not to laugh when bad things happen to beautiful people. (Do you think it’s funny when models fall on the runway?) Luckily, YouTube users have made a sport of compiling clips of fashion disasters. Hopefully, Miranda is doing better. But in the meantime, we’ve found some other OMG model moments. Keep reading »

Quick Pic: “O” Is For Outrageous

Karen O is a style icon to many, no doubt, but we just don’t really see this whole onesie diaper for grownups with extra socks and leggings look–which she sported whilst performing at the Reading music fest this weekend–catching on. [Reading, UK, 8/30/09] Keep reading »

Steven Meisel Sure Likes His Models Dirty

What is going on with all this dirty chic nonsense? Craig McDean shot a huge spread for the September 2009 issue of W magazine highlighting the stylish side of homelessness (yeah, wtf), and now legendary photographer Steven Meisel has carried the theme over to Italian Vogue. In fact, Meisel shot not one, not two, but three covers featuring Anna Jagodzinska, Will Lewis, Ash Stymest, Jamie Bochert and, of course, Sasha Pivovarova. (Pivovarova had a starring role as the Dior tissue paper-clad bag lady in McDean’s W shoot.) On each cover, the models pose in pairs or trios clad in luxurious clothes that are made to look worn and makeup that makes them look like a troupe of dusty, thirsty vagabonds. Beyond being perhaps the dirtiest cover to date, this triple issue is also distinct for using male models on the front, a rare practice for Italian Vogue. [Design Scene] Keep reading »

Did You Wear Makeup As A Little Girl?

If you spend enough time in Sephora, you’ll see some disconcerting things, like booger-y children sticking their fingers in tubs of lip gloss, or gross grownups abusing their communal lipstick-testing privileges. But a few days ago while strolling around the makeup store, I witnessed a sight I’ve never seen: a woman (I assume she was the mom) swiping blue eye shadow on a young girl who must have been about four years old. I’ve seen lots of kids with painted nails out and about, but never little girls wearing adult makeup.

Not to sound like an old grump complaining about “the kids these days,” but eye shadow on a four-year-old? Really? Isn’t that a bit young? Playing with makeup never appealed to me when I was a little girl myself, though, so perhaps I just don’t understand. Keep reading »

Crave: A.P.C. Karaoke DVD

Karaoke isn’t normally a classy affair. Dive bars, sloppy slurred words, vodka shots, and embarrassing photos are more like it. Leave it to A.P.C., one of our favorite French clothing labels, to make karaoke cute. Their new DVD offers instrumental versions of the standards: “Like a Virgin,” “Billie Jean,” and other hits by the likes of The Ramones, The Spice Girls, and The Police. Except, instead of the cheesy beach scenes and ’80s montages you normally get on the screen (OK, we do kind of like those), you get nature images filmed from a boat on a polar exploration in icy Greenland. See? Classy. [$35, Apc.fr] Keep reading »

Creamy White Polish Is The Best End-Of-Summer Nail Shade

Normally, the Daytime Emmy Awards aren’t really my bag. I’m not a huge soap fan (Is she preggers with Sonny’s baby or does it belong to Jax?! OMG, is he really sleeping with Hope Brady?!) or a regular “View” watcher (except when Elisabeth goes off on one of her nutso rants), so to me, the event is sort of a non-issue. What isn’t a non-issue, though, are the red carpet goings-on at the Daytime Emmys and I’m struck by one seriously dope beauty trend: white-ish nails. They were everywhere. Not that the marshmallow-fluff-white shade is a just-this-second color—it’s been kicking around the nail salon shelves for years—but it seems like there’s a bit of a resurrection of late, which I lurve. Also, white nails look great on all skin tones and tend to make your complexion and hands look tan in comparison. So, what better way to wring out the last of your summer bronze (or if you’re like me, non-bronze)? Screw the no white after Labor Day maxim. After the jump, the best shades out there!

Chris March Files Lawsuit Against Thierry Mugler Over Beyonce’s Costumes

Chris March is usually very jovial and humble when he’s competing on “Project Runway,” but sometimes a man has to put his foot down if he’s being disrespected. March has filed a lawsuit against fellow designer Thierry Mugler for allegedly not paying him for the work he did on Beyoncé’s “I Am” tour costumes. Now hold on a sec before you get all hot and bothered. Mugler did design the costumes, but March executed them because he’s used to designing for the stage and “wild” dancing. March says he had to figure out a way to attach a harness into one of Beyoncé’s costumes and had to mold corsets to fit her figure perfectly. Everything was going smoothly, says March, until he submitted his last payment invoice after getting the finished costumes to Edmonton, Canada by March 26, the day of Beyoncé’s first show. March says Mugler left for Paris without paying anyone. (Beyoncé had paid Mugler and he was supposed to pay his team.) March told The Cut, “There’s just been a refusal to pay with no reason.”

This seems to be an oversight. I doubt Mugler handles his own invoices. Though, it’s too bad that the seven-year work relationship between these two has to end this way. Keep reading »

Quick Pic: Here Kitty, Kitty

Cat Man Dennis Avner is the world’s most modified man. In his quest to look more like a tiger, he’s split his upper lip, undergone surgical pointing of the ears, plumped his face full of silicone implants, filed his teeth to points, and gotten plenty of ink and piercings (he attaches whiskers to the ones around his mouth). Wonder if he’s ever met cat lady Joceyln Wildenstein? They’d be so purr-fect together. (So sorry.) [NYC, 8/312/09]

Heather Mills Creates Horrifying Eco-Friendly Clothing Line

You’d think someone who worked as a “model” would know a thing or two about clothes. Kate Moss, with her enormously popular line for Topshop, is the perfect example of this assumption coming true. But just because you have worn clothes for your job doesn’t mean you have the skills need to design clothes professionally. Case in point: Heather Mills, the latest celebrity to launch a clothing line.

Last Thursday at the Celebrity Catwalk charity event in L.A., Heather Mills debuted her new Be@one recycled clothing line. In our opinion, it looks like she went to Goodwill, bought some old prom dresses, and wielded a pair of scissors. Heather’s website says the new brand “is about to show there is nothing trashy about recycling unwanted clothing!” We couldn’t agree more that recycled clothes can be cool — just not the ones Heather “made.” [Celebitchy]

After the jump, our favorite looks from Heather’s Be@one collection. God help us if anyone buys them. Keep reading »
