All Things "Mob Wives"
11 Life Lessons From This Year In Reality Television
Everything The Frisky's ever written about "Mob Wives." Read More »
  • Anne Hathaway owed someone an apology regarding her appearance on Oscar night (and no, that “someone” isn’t all of us after we were forced to stare at what appeared to be her nipples all evening). You see, Anne was supposed to wear a couture dress by Valentino, but she flipped out and grabbed that Prada at the last minute after catching wind that Amanda Seyfried was wearing a similar dress. The house of Valentino even announced beforehand that Anne would be wearing Valentino… and then she didn’t. Disappointment abounds! Here’s the Best Supporting Actress winner’s public apology. [Huffington Post]
  • Noooooo! Calvin Klein’s erstwhile boytoy/talking monkey (such a cool party trick) Nick Gruber is no longer writing a tell-all about his two-year relationship with the designer. Despite a bidding war and what Gruber describes as “a ton of interest” in the memoir, the model said of the deal, “I just did not want to hurt him or others. I am a good person, not a mean person.” I suspect bribery. [The Cut]
  • Carine Roitfeld and “Mob Wives” are seemingly on opposing ends of the class spectrum, but leave it to irreverent Carine to go where no upmarket fashion editor has gone before. The former Vogue Paris editor-in-chief spent a day shooting with Big Ang and the gang for the second issue of CR Fashion Book and loved every trashy minute of it. [Styleite]
  • In which Fashion Week is hilariously, accurately compared to “The Hunger Games” in brilliant detail. [Lucky]

  • Well, that’s one way to get fired: Phivos Lampros Istavrioglou (what a name), the head of international relations at French fashion brand Moncler, has been accused of one major art heist. He was arrested at JFK airport for the theft of ‘Cartel Des Don Juan Tenorio 1949,’ a $150,000 Salvador Dali painting (shown), from an Upper East Side art gallery last year. [Business Insider]
  • Race relations are always a popular topic in fashion, thanks in part to the industry’s reputation for being maybe just the slightest bit obtuse. At New York Fashion Week this season, critics noticed that there was less racial diversity than ever. Jezebel crunched the numbers, and here’s what they found… [Jezebel]
  • Rihanna has another collaboration to add to her roster, and it isn’t musical this time. Just a few days after her design collab with British brand River Island went down the runway, the controversial singer has announced plans to partner with MAC Cosmetics. Like, really partner — RiRi has signed on to have a hand in four distinct color lines set to launch throughout this year. I guess that’s what you get for wearing Ruby Woo almost every time you’re photographed! [Refinery29]
  • You’ll recall that John Galliano made waves in his Hasidic get-up during New York Fashion Week. Writers at Conan got in touch with the disgraced designer’s brother Joe, who actually does wear Jewish hats. Like, real Jewish hats, trimmed with bagels, dreidels, aaaaaand a circumcised banana. Yeah. Watch it! [The Cut]

  • It was only a matter of time before Allison Williams landed herself a beauty contract. British import Simple skincare, which offers products formulated for sensitive skin, has tapped the “Girls” star and Ridiculously Pretty Person as their first American spokesmodel. Allison may not play squeaky-clean on the show, but she’s definitely got the kind of fresh face that’ll look great getting water splashed on it in 30-second TV clips! [People Style Watch]
  • Do you skip the advised “patch test” every time you use a new product? Uh, yeah, me too, but now that I’ve seen what an allergic reaction to boxed hair dye looks like, I’m second-guessing my devil-may-care habits in a big way. [Gawker]
  • Following in the well-heeled footsteps of other models-cum-designers like Cindy Crawford and Elle Macpherson, Alessandra Ambrosio is making the transition from clothes-wearer to clothes-maker with a new lifestyle empire called Alé. The brand will offer a variety of accessibly-priced wares channeling Alessandra’s personal style.

  • Constance Jablonski, a Victoria’s Secret Angel and the face of Estée Lauder cosmetics, is in big legal trouble to the tune of $3.3 million for violating her three-year contract with Marilyn Model Management to work for a rival modeling firm. [Daily News]
  • Kim Kardashian must have a set of iron balls to pose for the cover of Hiya, an Arab fashion magazine, wearing a hijab. No riots have been reported as of yet. Or fatwas, for that matter. [The Hollywood Gossip]
  • Wrangler’s new Denim Spa Therapy For Legs jeans are “infused with moisturizing and slimming ingredients,” and come in three finishes: Aloe Vera, Olive Extract, and Smooth Legs. So, you know. That’s weird. [Jezebel]
  • Eek. IBM released findings from their proprietary future-casting algorithm that predict steampunk as the next big fashion trend. We have our doubts, but we will not be participating regardless. [Refinery29]

  • Apparently, the “Kate Effect” that has consumers scrambling to purchase clothes spotted on Kate Middleton isn’t all it’s cracked up to be: the Duchess’s penchant for wearing past-season items means most of them have already sold out by the time she’s photographed in them. Designer Roland Mouret even went so far as to say his brand would be more likely to get orders on a dress worn by Kim Kardashian than Kate Middleton. Sad, but probably true. Just don’t tell Kim. [Telegraph]
  • Katie Holmes signed on as the first celebrity face of Bobbi Brown a few months ago — and now here’s our first look at her ad campaign for Bobbi’s Long-Wear Cream Shadow Sticks. [Huffington Post]
  • Francesca Eastwood, daughter of Clint and Miss Golden Globe 2013, has been named as the new face of cosmetics brand Too Faced for their Fall 2013 collection. [IB Times]

  • Well, that was fast: just weeks after beloved Balenciaga designer Nicolas Ghesquière departed the brand, Alexander Wang (shown here with Carine Roitfeld) has been placed as the head designer. This could spell trouble in endorsement paradise for Ghesquière’s friend (and face of Balenciaga fragrance Florabotanica) Kristen Stewart, as Wang vocally supported Liberty Ross earlier this year. [Refinery29]
  • Page Six talked to Calvin Klein’s former boy toy Nick Gruber (who, at 22, is 48 years his designer ex’s junior) about his relationship with Calvin and his upcoming memoir. Fair warning: it’s all pretty weird. [NY Post]
  • Kate Upton snagged her second international Vogue cover, this time for the prestigious glossy’s British version. Upton is inarguably finding success in all publications, but that doesn’t mean that Vogue UK editor Alexandra Shulman didn’t feel it necessary to explain her decision. [Gothamist]

H&M Announces Clothing Exchange Program

The designer line causes fights in China! Read More »

Starting in February of next year, when you bring in a bag of old clothes to H&M, the company will recycle them for you and you’ll be rewarded with a discount voucher to buy some new ones. Pretty cool, right? The clothing exchange discount is part of H&M’s new iCollect recycling program, which aims to reduce the massive amount of waste produced by the clothing industry. Not only is the plan good for the earth, it’s also a smart PR move: you might remember a couple years ago when H&M found itself in hot water after The New York Times revealed the company routinely destroyed unsold clothing–including winter coats and gloves–that would gladly be accepted by shelters and charities.

  • The FDA is cracking down on marketing claims made by cosmetics companies, especially those associated with anti-aging products. You didn’t actually believe that Lancôme serum could “boost the activity of genes,” right? [Cosmetics Design]
