Paris Fashion Week Fall 2013 Ready-To-Wear: Days 1-3

After three weeks in New York, London, and Milan, we’ve finally made it to Paris. Many of the most important shows of the season just so happen to run in Paris — you might even be able to say that the city is the original home of the industry itself. The coming week is a…

Cristóbal Balenciaga Preferred To Dress Fat Women

An all-too-common complaint about fashion designers today is that they don’t produce clothes in nearly enough sizes. Size and weight are similarly loaded subjects within the industry, and fashion’s apparent favoritism towards the thin and thinner is hardly unchartered topical territory. The house of Balenciaga, newly helmed by Alexander Wang following beloved creative director Nicola…

Style 911: Where Do I Get Katie Holmes’ Military-Inspired Coat?

Last week, I raved about this amaaazing hot pink/olive green combo that Katie Holmes wore to the studio to film an appearance on Late Night with David Letterman. Commenter nomnombacon fell in love with Katie’s gorgeous military-inspired jacket, and can you blame her? It’s such a gorgeous piece. Julie and I did some digging and discovered…

Love It Or Leave It: Kristen Stewart’s Pleated Pants And Bra Top?

I love seeing Kristen Stewart in more androgynous high-fashion looks — they almost always suit the tomboyish “Twilight” star better than the usual glam red carpet fare, and let’s face it, the girl can rock a pair of weird pants like no other… for the most part. At an “On The Road” event this weekend,…

Kristen Stewart Bares Her High-Fashion Chops For Balenciaga’s New Fragrance

The reception of Kristen Stewart’s fashion presence mimics that of her reception on-screen: people who like her really love her, warts and all, and those who don’t just… don’t. I tolerate her, even like her a little bit, but even so it has to be said that she’s certainly no Charlize, who’s a natural both…

Do Not Want: A Seven Pound, $17,500 Fake Leather Jacket

Nevermind that this thing is demonstrably out of our price range, this faux leather Balenciaga jacket weighs seven pounds! Seven pounds! Who wants to walk around with seven extra pounds of fabric and tickety-tackity trimmings on them all day? [Style]…

Cool Or Confusing: Balenciaga’s Play-Doh Heels

We make allowances for certain things from our childhood to revisit our wardrobes, but we’re not sure if Play-Doh fits in. These heels from Balenciaga’s spring collection are inspired by Play-Doh and made out of a crazy mixed material meant to resemble the kids’ toy. What’s in it? Melted strips of different colored leathers (we…

Beauty Test Drive: Balenciaga Paris Eau De Parfum

If you’re a lover of lady mags like we are, then you’ve probably noticed advertisements for Balenciaga Paris in almost every April issue. It’s kind of difficult to get the full effect with those paper fragrance testers so I got my hands on an actual bottle of this new scent. My first thought after the…

Stop The Presses! Carine Roitfeld & Balenciaga At War!

Apparently, fashion icon and famous editor of French Vogue Carine Roitfeld has been “blacklisted” by Balenciaga. Reports WWD:
They were barred from the show. ‘We’re blacklisted,’ Roitfeld said with a shrug at Nina Ricci later in the day. ‘It’s too bad, it’s a beautiful house and it’s French. I hope that it’s not forever.’…
