Justin Timberlake’s William Rast Teams With Target

Having perused the men’s section at Target a few times, I’ve come to the conclusion that male shoppers of the retailer like their clothes boring and tame. Khakis, striped polos, and cargo pants abound. The section is nothing like the women’s department, where Target has figured out how to cater to the soccer moms and cheerleaders, while also offering avant garde designer wear for the style geek on a budget. Target’s collaboration with Justin Timberlake‘s William Rast will take the men’s department and women’s to the next level, though. William Rast, which Justin founded with his friend Trace Ayala, is known for its biker-influenced clothes and jeans. The label offers a rock star edge that also has that laid-back L.A. vibe, so it will be interesting how this attitude translates for the Target customer. At least on Dec. 19, when the collaboration collection premieres, Target will have more than a graphic T-shirt to offer to their fashion forward male customers. And I might finally be able to get a William Rast leather jacket, which normally retails for almost $400. [WWD] Keep reading »

Elle Creative Director Joe Zee Wanders New York City In A Chanel Fur Suit

Don’t get me wrong, I love me some Joe Zee. But if you watch “The City,” Elle magazine’s creative director comes across as fun but a little bit of a hard-nose. Here, though, in this hilarious video, we get to see another side of Zee, making fun of himself. For some reason, Zee decided it would be a good idea to meander through the streets of Manhattan during a heatwave looking for the zoo and wearing a giant faux-fur suit from Chanel’s fall-winter runway show. It’s Yeti Zee! Watch as Joe sunbathes his fur, gets a hairball, and tells everyone his hair is couture. [Racked] Keep reading »

Lara Stone Suing French Playboy For Publishing Naked Photos

If you don’t know who model Lara Stone is — the just-married, gap-toothed blond has modeled for Louis Vuitton, Calvin Klein, Versace, and pretty much every other fashion house of note on the planet at this point — you may remember her as the girl I’d go gay for. The photo that prompted me to say that, which you see here, was from a super-sexy series of photos that appeared in the French version of Playboy. Wow, I thought, how open minded of her. She walks the runway for Miu Miu and strips down for Playboy. In actuality, though, those naked photos of Stone, taken by photographer Greg Lotus, were published in Playboy France without the model’s permission, and now she’s suing. “Playboy had no right to publish these unauthorized photographs. It’s not the kind of publication I would ever choose to appear in,” Stone has since stated. “I feel I have no option but to take steps to protect my reputation.” Still, more models now than ever are posing naked. Is this idea of distinguishing between “artful nudes” and “soft-core porn,” or however you’d like to put it, really appropriate anymore? After all, Playboy France has previously featured Lily Cole, Alexandra Richards, and Lou Dillon. What do you think? [The Cut] Keep reading »

First Look: Betsey Johnson’s Eloise-Themed Suite For The Plaza

At long last, the Plaza Hotel has opened up its Eloise-themed suite designed by Betsey Johnson. The New York Times has the scoop: It’s done up in two-toned pink stripes, has custom fabric with Eloise-y phrases (“Charge it, please”), a princess-like bed, and a few dolls and toys. It will only cost you about $1,000 a night, and “to add an adjoining room for grown-ups, the nightly rate begins at $2,045.” For grown-ups. At least kids still get the under-12 discount.
