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.

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, 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 »

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. See more after the jump … [Levis via Styleite] Keep reading »
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.
