We’d love to give our sad drawer full of worn-out granny panties a designer makeover, but that would be fairly expensive. Thank God for online outlet stores, where we can find gorgeous, silk floral briefs that originally cost $130 at a fraction of the price. These aren’t just pretty and comfy-looking; no one would kick them out of bed, that’s for sure.
Ah, Madonna. So elusive. So enigmatic. So impenetrable. If only she weren’t wearing those dark sunglasses all the time! Then maybe we would know her. Or perhaps not. If you want to throw shade like the Material Girl, you can now, thanks to the fact that Miss M and Dolce & Gabbana are collaborating on a line of sunglasses. The brand-within-a-brand will be called MDG (which sort of sounds like a gyno office, but whatever), the shades will go for $248 to $289 a pair, and the sexy campaign was shot by Steven Klein (natch). “[Madonna] is very exacting and a professional who seeks perfection in everything she does, and this was no exception,” spews Stefano Gabbana. But will wearing them make you super famous? Maybe. [WWD] Keep reading »
What do I have to say to you about this video? You’re welcome. Bored? Your love life lacking stimulation? You always wanted to know what hot, greased-up male models were doing behind the scenes on an ad shoot? Well, today is your lucky day! In this two-part video of the making of Dolce & Gabbana’s spring/summer men’s ad campaign, guys who look pretty for a living dance in circles, get wet, wrestle, slap each other around, and throw grapes at each other. Trust me, it is a sight to behold. After the jump, part two, featuring one male model throwing squashed grapes at another male model’s crotch. Yes. Keep reading »
According to New York magazine, the male version of bimbos, himbos, are the new high-fashion trend. Chanel’s taste maker, Karl Lagerfeld, says the must-have accessory in ads are prop boy toys. Just check out his own luvah Baptiste Giabiconi, pictured here, being strung along by Jerry Hall. And on her other arm, she’s got that glamorous white Chanel bracelet— outfit complete! Of his angle, Mr. Lagerfeld told WWD:
“It’s very simple. They put the girls in a more lifestyle situation. Lonely girls can be a little sad in a fashion story. They dress not only for other girls, but also to please men. The popularity is sudden because there are a few new faces.”
Yes, bring on the fresh hot dudes! Hey, I’m a feminist, but I’m also egalitarian. I have to admit, I’m kind of excited about this objectification of men (as you might have been able to tell by the underwear models slideshow). And now high-end designers are telling me I’m not alone. Is this trend a sign that women are finally earning their market share by having their half-naked mantasies photographed? Feast your eyes on more of this tasty man-candy trend, after the jump! Keep reading »
We’ve never seen such well-dressed pink gorillas, have you? Keep reading »
For the most part, men have three color choices when it comes to suits: black, gray, and navy blue. They’ve been able to expand their shirt and tie options from the traditional white, blue, white and blue striped, and white and blue checked over the years, and perhaps the increase in popularity of golf and other country club sports made it more common for men to wear pale pink and purple shirts and ties. Pink has become a much more acceptable color for guys than it was just a few years ago, and it might soon be as acceptable as it was in the early 1900s.
Suits in practically fluorescent shades of pink came down the runways at the Fall 2009 Dolce & Gabbana show, the Spring 2009 Givenchy and Calvin Klein shows. And Refinery 29 spotted men wearing the neon shade on men outside fashion shows, too. Most guys I know probably won’t be suiting up in hot pink for work, but celebs like Kanye West and Pete Wentz would definitely throw one on for a premiere or a party. And I have a feeling we’re going to start seeing men wear this color a whole lot more often, even if only on their socks. Keep reading »
