10 Pairs Of Really Ugly, Super Expensive Designer Pants

As wise poet and personal role model LuAnn deLesseps once crowed -- actually she autotuned it -- "money can't buy you class." Money also can't buy you style, as evidenced by the wide array of horribly ugly pants on offer by high end designers these days. Do you have $600 and no abiding sense of…

Jimmy Choo Honors 90-Year-Old Iris Apfel — With A Stiletto

Iris Apfel is the grand dame of quirky, eccentric style. And luxury shoe maker Jimmy Choo wanted to honor Apfel's signature look by designing a shoe after her. Dubbed the Iris, the five-inch heel will almost certainly never be worn by the diminutive 90-year-old New Yorker. And we're not sure who else will be…

So, aside from getting to play future-lesbian (we think, anyway) daughter Sally Draper on "Mad Men," the extremely articulate and thoughtful Kiernan Shipka has a couple other tricks up her sleeve. The 11-year-old actress mostly dresses in vintage-y frocks from Portuguese designer Papo d'Anjo, but she also designs and wears her own bespoke creations, inspired…

Quotable: Marc Jacobs Takes A Brain Vacation With The “Jersey Shore”

One Dress, 3 Covers, Big Drama

Miu Miu has some explaining to do.
