All Our Favorite Looks From Paris Couture Week

It’s Fall/Winter 2012 Couture Week in Paris, my favorite series of collections. Couture Week, like other fashion weeks, happens twice a year, and is when designers break out the big guns — garments can cost in the tens of thousands of dollars.

Megan Fox Gives Face For Giorgio Armani

Love her or hate her or continually ponder what led her to marry Brian Austin Green, you cannot deny that Megan Fox is some kind of special radiant beauty. And nowhere is that more clear than in her new ads for Giorgio Armani. She does seem the perfect spokesperson for a line called “Eyes to…

Do Not Want: Designer 3-D Glasses

Get ready for the next wave in fancy, useless, overpriced things: designer 3-D glasses. Apparently, Gucci is about to come out with some slick $225 aviators, while Armani is also planning a similar product (which will cost significantly less at $58, but still). We’d maybe justify the cost if somehow these fancy specs doubled a…

Someone Wasted Lots Of Money On Audio For Megan Fox’s Armani Video

Megan Fox’s video for Emporio Armani underwear has two key things people will be looking for: Megan Fox and underwear. Why waste thousands of dollars on the music? Shrug.

Cover Your Eyes, Children! This Armani Exchange Ad Is Gay!

OK, these models in Armani Exchange’s “Share The Love” campaign probably aren’t gay. They are just kissing each other in front of a camera because they’re getting paid thousands of dollars to do so. But that doesn’t make a difference to the angry, angry parent group OneMillionMoms.com, who have issued an “action alert” against these…

Can Couture Ever Get Hip And Modernized?

The problem with couture has existed pretty much since its inception. How much do we value fashion as an art, and at what point does couture’s importance cease if it remains not only elitist, but completely impractical? (Unless, of course, you’re keen on doing your grocery shopping in 40-pound ballgowns.) With an injured global economy…

Is David Beckham Happy To See You With Or Without Photoshop?

Emporio Armani reportedly paid David Beckham more than $29 million to appear in their latest men’s underwear campaign. We suspect the fashion house may have digitally enhanced his package. What’s your take?

The EU Doesn’t Want Sex to Sell Anything Anymore

David Beckham may be one of the best things to have happened to the game of soccer since cleats were invented, but he’s also one of the best things to have happened to advertising since the dawn of modern media…at least in my book. I mean, have you seen his nearly nude Armani ads? [Now

The Mother Land of Down Under: U.K. Men Obsessed With Hot Underwear

There’s a new trend in Britain, and even the BBC nightly newsman Jeremy Paxman is reporting his findings. The accent may make you weak in the knees, but British men have got something even sexier in their pants: hot underwear.
