Perhaps it’s unavoidable that after celebrity deaths, products associated with them go flying off the shelves. Alexander McQueen’s case proves no exception as it looks like people are both running to scoop up the designer’s wares, or trying to make a quick dime by selling them off.

World-renowned fashion designer Alexander McQueen has committed suicide at 40. McQueen became legendary for his provocative shows and refusal to pander to the fashion masses. Outfitting his models with metal bodices and moving them like chess pieces on the runway, the designer relentlessly raised the bar as his peers aspired to imitate his inimitable style. READ MORE »

Over at The Daily Beast, Rebecca Dana declares Alexander McQueen’s so-called “armadillo shoes” the “it” shoe of the season.

Fashion insiders (and savvy reality TV watchers) know that for all the delish ridiculosity that is “America’s Next Top Model,” most of these girls are never gonna make it in the real world of high fashion modeling.

In her latest video, “Bad Romance,” Lady Gaga prances around, actin’ a fool, in a bunch of weird outfits. In other words, same stuff, different song. Fashion-wise, the Lady and her dancers are costumed as synthetic white asparagus stems, her nails are encased in mesh cages, and her key accessory is a hairless cat. READ MORE »

I very recently bought a pair of Christian Louboutin heels for $85 at a sample sale—ah-mazing deal, right? Well, turns out, not so much. They’re a size too small and perilously high, way too high for my heel-walking abilities. But, yeah, I still went ahead and bought them even though I could barely walk around… READ MORE »
