How The “It-Bag” Is Made

“The It Bag is a totally marketed bulls**t crap. You make a bag, you put all the components in it that you think could work, you send it out to a couple of celebrities, you get the paparazzi to shoot just when they walk out of their house. You sell that to the cheap tabloids, and you say in a magazine that there’s a waiting list. And you run an ad campaign at the same time. I don’t believe that’s how you make something that’s lasting — that becomes iconic as a design.”

– Tomas Maier, creative director of Bottega Veneta, explains to the New Yorker how designers create a buzz for their handbags. [Racked] Keep reading »

I’ll Go Commando Before I’ll Wear $40 Cotton Underwear

I read (and by “read” I mean “look,” as there aren’t many words to begin with) Lucky religiously every month. For the most part, the clothes featured in the magazine are outside my price range (at least at full price), but I always get something out of the issue. I’ll discover a cool new beauty product or get ideas for styling a new outfit out of the clothes I already have. When I cracked open the February 2011 issue of the magazine (with Nicole Richie on the cover), I learned something truly shocking: Some people actually think it makes sense to spend $40 on a single pair of cotton brief underwear.

French Vogue Wants Your Little Girls

It’s not unusual for little girls to have an innocent romp in their moms’ closets every once in a while. But what happens when the closet they’re romping in happens to belong to French Vogue? French Vogue editor Carine Roitfeld must have really wanted to go out with a controversial bang. In the latest issue of the fashion magazine, the outgoing editor included a fashion spread–called “Cadeaux,” which means “gift” in French–starring a bevy of way underage girls, all dolled up like come-hither Lolitas. It’s no surprise that young models sell magazines; just look at the latest crop of Eastern European model teenagers for proof. But still, it’s a little unsettling to see a band of 8-year-olds decked out in high-class couture, mimicking older, more experienced women. And what’s really shocking: the designer clothes seem to hug the bodies of these little girls, making us wonder just who these clothes were really made for, anyway. Check out a couple more images from the spread after the jump–and tell us what you think. [Gawker] Keep reading »

Transsexual Model Lea T. Speaks About Her Gender Identity

“I’ve never had a girlfriend or a boyfriend … Even with surgery, I’ll never be a woman. And I will not be man. I’ll always be the middle… My father said I’ll always be his little black boy. That he’ll love me if I am man, woman or dog. My mother is very religious. She refuses, but says she will not leave me.”

– Lea T., who was born Leandro Cerezo Medeiros, starred in last season’s Givenchy ad campaign and has even been booked to appear on Oprah’s last season. [Quem via Racked] Keep reading »

Rihanna’s Reb’l Fleur Fragrance Ad

Even though Rihanna looks beautiful, the ad for her much-anticipated Reb’l Fleur fragrance doesn’t exactly say fragrance to me. I’m also surprised she wore that rebellious red hair, but I guess that was the point. Keep reading »
