As we reported yesterday, Alexander McQueen
‘s big live-streaming fashion show was ruined by Lady Gaga
when she let it slip on Twitter that her new single, “Bad Romance,” would premiere there. Unfortunately, unless you’re a fashion editor or part of the style elite, you didn’t get to see or hear anything because the rush of Gaga fans to the website caused it to crash. So without further adieu, here’s what you missed. Do we likey? Keep reading »
Alexander McQueen was all set to revolutionize insider-y Fashion Week by broadcasting his spring/summer 2010 runway show live on the web. The fashion blogs were psyched, and so were we. Unfortunately, fashion history was not made, and who should be at fault but Lady Gaga. When the pop star posted to Twitter that her new single, “Bad Romance,” would be debuting at the McQueen show, the streaming website was inundated by thousands of visitors, causing it to crash.
No fashion for the masses this time, kiddies. Maybe next season designers who want to stream their shows live will think about increasing their bandwidth (and no, that doesn’t refer to dress size). [Elle UK] Keep reading »
One of the many insanely sky-high shoes — supposedly, the heel is 10 inches — at Alexander McQueen‘s aqua-themed runway show. [10/6/09, Paris] Keep reading »
In just an hour, fashion designer Alexander McQueen
will be live streaming
his spring/summer 2010 collection online. Seeing as McQueen is a master of the runway spectacle — previous shows have featured paint-spewing robots, models as chess pieces, and Kate Moss via hologram — it should be an eyeful. The show is titled “Plato’s Atlantis,” and Lee and co. have been teasing the process on Twitter
, from model castings to last-minute preparations. The show begins at 8:15 p.m. Paris time — or 2:15 p.m. EST and 11:15 a.m. PST. Tune in! [SHOWStudio

Fashion Week is a generally an invite-only occasion. Shows like Marc Jacobs are impossible to get in to even for celebrities, and the lines for the chicest parties are astronomically long. So usually, unless you’re in the industry or uber A-list, being a part of it all entails stalking blogs and Twitter for information on the designer’s latest collections and all the late night party details.
But change is in the air! There have been a few advancements recently in opening the insidery world of fashion to the world.

We’ve already discussed The Shoe that we non-famous people are going all bats**t crazy over, but here’s The Bag of the season, according to Alexander McQueen’s Twitter feed and, um, visual proof — Freida Pinto, Kelly Osbourne, Little Boots and Sam Taylor Wood all wore his Skull Knuckle Duster Clutch to those GQ awards we were discussing yesterday. (On that note, if you haven’t witnessed Kate Moss’ temper tantrum yet, please watch it ASAP.) This shiz is smokin’ hot if, say, you’re into skulls and leather and all that crap (and I assure you, I am), but the problem is that I’m pretty sure the designer’s publicists sent these gorgeous young folks this clutch free of charge, because that’s basically how this system works. Sadly, most of us peons will never quite achieve McQueenian nirvana since the price tag of this delectable little number is no less than $1,895. Check it out here if you want to buy it and/or don’t believe me. Get a much closer look at it after the jump, because you know at least we can look forward to knockoffs coming to an H&M near us soon.

The clouds have parted, the sun has emerged, and the heavens are singing. The world’s greatest fashion designer (in my — totally correct — opinion), Alexander McQueen, is now on Twitter! Lee [That is, apparently, McQueen's nickname or something. -- Editor] and his posse started emitting tweets earlier this week at @McQueenWorld. Racked has confirmed it’s the real deal. While they’re not tweeting up a storm just yet, it sounds like they’re gearing up to Twitter about Fashion Week from behind the scenes at McQueen. To quote Rachel Zoe: “I die.” [Racked] Keep reading »
It’s hard not to hate Perez Hilton. Dude can be a real d-bag. So, when Jezebel blogger Tracie Egan wrote on her own blog that she’s not nervous about Hilton’s new CocoPerez “lady blog,” we were pretty much in agreement. After all, Jezebel is pretty awesome as far as the feminist blog set goes, and Perez Hilton draws penises on women’s faces. But Egan moved quickly from criticizing Perez for thinking he “gets” women to bitching about gay men in general. According to Egan, gay men are to blame for most of the problems in the fashion industry.

Can we raise our hands for too much? We’re all about taking fashion risks here at The Frisky, but like the legendary soap opera, they must be bold and beautiful. What Rihanna is giving us here feels a touch sloppy. She rocked London at the “Inglourious Basterds” premiere with what was otherwise a pretty tasteful and well-put-together outfit (Alexander McQueen thankyouverymuch), but we’re not sure if the pearls take the whole moment overboard. Are you loving the multi-layered look or was this just over the top for you? [Just Jared] Keep reading »
