Jeremy Scott On “The Young And The Restless”

Designer Jeremy Scott — he of the world’s most ridiculous sunglasses — is following in James Franco’s legendary footsteps by guesting on a soap opera. On today’s episode of “The Young and the Restless,” Scott and his ever-interesting coif is decked out in a wildly embellished matador jacket and bitchy scowl. He’s playing a designer on the show, so it’s not like he’ll have to try too hard to get into character, meaning the performance may not be horrifying. In any event, we’re excited.

The Man With The 23-Inch Waist

Meet Gabriel Moginot, the man with the amazing 23-inch waist. Though his actual waist measurement is closer to 30 inches, as a student of legendary haute-couture corset-maker Mr. Pearl, Moginot has trained himself to fit into the 23-inch corset pictured at left. Though Mr. Pearl, whose tiny corsets are painfully beautiful, has shimmied his own waist into an 18-incher, Moginot is but a student and we’re fully impressed by his feat, freakish though it may look.

Tom Ford To Direct Another Film

Tom Ford, former Gucci designer, raging narcissist and surprisingly awesome director of “A Single Man,” has confirmed that he’ll be making another movie. We were skeptical when we heard last year that Ford was directing at all, but his debut film was actually pretty great, so we’re excited to see what he’s got for us this time. Ford’s staying tight-lipped about the project for now, but we’re sure it’ll be at least as visually stunning as “A Single Man” was and can’t wait for the release! [Elle UK] Keep reading »

Levi’s + Gaultier = Denim Cone Boobs

With the news that Jean Paul Gaultier is leaving his post at Hermès, it’s safe to assume that the designer will have more time to focus on creative collaborations such as this one with Levi’s. The all-American jean company reached out to the eccentric JPG to create a collection of denim pieces complete with his trademark aesthetics, including cone boobs, to bring a designer feel to denim. JPG provided a selection of fashion-forward clothing items to the denim brand, ranging from harem pants to jean jackets. Out of all the options, I’m in love with the dungaree dress. It’s perfect for summer with cutouts perfect for warm weather, and you can layer in a tee to transform it into a day dress, or wear it on top of a bikini for a trip to the beach. The cost leaves much to be desired though, as pieces range from about $173 to $478, but they are Jean Paul Gaultier creations, after all.

Lorenzo Martone Tries His Hand At Swimwear

Marc Jacobs seems to be rubbing off on his adorable significant other, Lorenzo Martone, who’s decided to give clothing design a shot. Having spent years working on fashion brands at advertising agency Chandelier Creative, Martone’s no stranger to style and creativity, but the swimwear line he’s creating with jewelry designer Jules Kim is his first go at designing. The label, Nycked, is said to be inspired by Brazil, and it allegedly involves sequins, lacing, and rather large bows. Pics aren’t out yet, but we’re curious to see where this goes.

Victoria Beckham Makes Menswear Chic

Though she’s the queen of fitted dresses and slim silhouettes, Victoria Beckham is expanding her design portfolio into a new realm. Instead of sticking to sophisticated dresses and curve-hugging designs, Posh will enter the world of menswear, where the emphasis will be on tailoring. “I always design things that I love and I’ve been obsessed with tailoring—I love a great jacket,” she said of her latest design move. With all the celebrity designers forcing their opinions onto the fashion world, it’s hard to be taken seriously, but Victoria is doing her best to show her interest and involvement. While she could simply hire a designer, Victoria actually spent time studying under the tailors at Savile Row, learning their craft to prep for her newest collection and earning major respect, at least from us.

Need Another Online Shopping Site? Maybe.

Between Gilt Groupe, ideeli, Rue La La, and The Outnet, the web is clogged with newsletters, online shopping sites, and exclusive deals, but pretty soon another one will be added to the masses. A former retail exec, Cecilia Pagkalinawan, and venture capitalist, Jim Robinson IV, have hatched a plan to launch StyleTrek, which aims to create a brand-new way to shop. Like we haven’t heard that before. But instead of focusing on established designers, Cecila plans to give those who are emerging a chance to flaunt their wares through social commerce.

Central St. Martins Grads Go For Crazy And We Like It

The school year is coming to an end, and 40 students graduating from Central St. Martins in London showed off their designs. The clothes may look more prepared for the set of a bizarro human “Sesame Street,” but it’s fun to see fashion students going crazy and taking risks. For the last couple of seasons, reviewers of past students’ creations lamented an absence of exuberance on the runway, blaming the crap economy for turning fashion shows into somber affairs. Perhaps that’s why this level of unwearable insanity on the runway is so exciting; it’s a long-awaited hint at better times to come. Sure, these crazy kids will probably tone it down as they grow up, but even toned-down versions of these outfits would be more interesting than most of the stuff we’re used to seeing. We can’t wait to see what they’ll come up with next. [Elle UK] Keep reading »

Your Favorite Fashion Designers Show How They Decorate Their Homes

If you weren’t already jealous of designers’ aesthetic abilities when it comes to creating clothes, you’re certainly going to be envious of their interior design skills and massive pads. The Council of Fashion Designers of America is working with Assouline to publish American Fashion Designers at Home, which will show off the inside of over 115 homes, including Donna Karan‘s sweet retreat, Ralph Lauren‘s ranch, and Diane von Furstenberg‘s abode. Now, I’m sure the majority of these designers had help with their decision-making process about the style of their living quarters, but it’s still inspiring to see their choices, not to mention the fact that there’s nothing more entertaining then taking a peek inside other people’s homes. The book will retail for $65, but proceeds will benefit the CFDA Foundation, and we’re sure it will provide countless ideas to help you make your home just as pretty as a fashion designer’s — without the interior designer fee.
