Zergnet: Simply Irresistible

You would think Bjork is committing multiple offenses with this outfit — a heady mix of winter wonderland + summer rave party with a splash of PTA mom. But this is Bjork, and generally the rules do not apply to her. I must take issue, however, with the horrible, beat-up sneaker-clogs she’s sporting. It’s not just that they’re made out of awful jute, but they’re in really bad shape, too. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
Jordana Brewster was spotted strolling around London in a lovely floral dress and cardigan combo. This pretty, put-together look would be perfect for a day at the office or even–gulp–Meeting The Parents. I found a similar floral dress and cardigan (both in plus sizes!) and all the accessories you’ll need to steal this style. Shopping details after the jump! Keep reading »
The Met Ball was poppin’ off last night. Not that we were there, but like, we could have been. The Costume Institute Gala is always home to some of the wildest fashion you’ll see all year long, and this year’s theme of “PUNK: Chaos To Couture” lent itself especially well to all things amazing and outrageous. Of course, there are two sides to every coin, which still does little to explain some of the more ridiculous looks you’ll see in the gallery above…
We could get into the atrocious politics, the end-of-culture-ness that having a Costume Institute Ball themed around punk entails. We could talk about how political punk icons like Joe Strummer and the dudes from Crass would be appalled by such a blatant cultural misappropriation. About how the Punk: Chaos to Couture exhibition at the Met actually created a replica of the fucking disgusting bathroom at long-dead punk club CBGBs (which has ironically been replaced by a John Varvatos clothing store). Or about how the attendees at last night’s Met Ball — despite their safety pin appliques, dyed hair, spiked heels and studs – had no clue about punk’s tenets, beyond the obvious and cliche aesthetic signposts.
We could talk about all of those things ad nauseum, because the misappropriation of punk — the turning of punk into little more than a fashion statement — is simply another symptom of how capitalist culture dilutes, chews up and swallows cultural movements and distills them into non-threatening, easily commodifiable shadows of their former selves. But hey, let’s just look at the clothes instead.
Over the weekend, the Metropolitan Museum of Art set up a special screening of the new “Great Gatsby” movie. A ton of stars attended, likely in part because tonight is the Met Ball (this year’s theme: punk). We’ll have all the gowns and mis-applied safety pins for you tomorrow, but in the meantime, take a look at these five — from left to right: Kylie Minogue, Solange, Nanette Lepore, Rachael Taylor and Brad Goreski — and pick your favorite print or pattern!
Yesterday, I looked at the picture on the left, of actress/director Sarah Polley, and thought, It’s Peggy from “Mad Men.” So then I looked up pictures of Elisabeth Moss, who plays Peggy. And while they may not look exactly alike, they do sort of resemble each other, don’t you think?
In the midst of all this ongoing Johnny Depp/Amber Heard dramz, I’m always happy to see Vanessa Paradis show up somewhere looking like her badass, sexy-French-witch self, unconcerned with silly Johnny and his totally gratuitous, overdone accessories (nine scarves at once!). Here she is at a Chanel exhibition at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris, because of course. Her hair is so perfect. So. Damn. Perfect. Team Vanessa, alllllllll the way.
Love her or hate her, you have to give respect to Anne Hathaway for daring to leave the house in all white. More respect, too, because she’s carrying a bottle of rosé. And that shit can get messy.
Wearing white is a skill I just don’t possess. There are always salad dressing accidents, coffee splashing incidents, ink smears, chocolate marks and the like. Which is why I’m kind of in awe of AHaths for this one. Nope, I will probably never see “Les Miserables,” but I will certainly give her an award for “Best Job At Tempting The Wine Gods.”
Anyway, if you, like Anne, can keep your spills in check, then go ahead and copy this gorgeous outfit. We’ve got all the deets after the jump. Keep reading »
This is a photo of RuPaul and his date at a high school prom in 1983. We’re gonna guess that it was his date’s prom, not his, as he was born in 1960 (which would make him, you know, 23 here). Even back then, Ru had impeccable taste — we’re loving the boots. And his date’s crocheted frock is really cute, too. Do you think they’re still friends? I hope so! [Flavorwire]
