The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. Who comes up with this stuff? And on what kind of drugs? And are they sharing those drugs? Because it’s clear that there’s something rather cuckoo clocks about the whole affair. And even though there’s tons of boobs and bare bums, it doesn’t even seem that sexy — just campy and silly. You might call it the Snookification of sexy: More Benny Hill than bad rap video.
In any case, there were plenty of Vicky Secret supermodels on the catwalk last night, including a ridiculously in-shape post-baby Miranda Kerr (jaysus that woman!), a liquid-dieting Adriana Lima and a be-caped Candice Swanepoel. Check out all the cheeky, ridonkulous hilarity in our slideshow.
For the past 15 years, the storied Algonquin Hotel in Manhattan has hosted a cat fashion show, in honor of its famed housecat, Matilda. This year’s fashion show brought out a wide array of well-coiffed kitties, dressed to the nine-lives (BARF) in the finest cat costume creations their crazy owners could find. Of course, there’s nothing more displeasing to a cat than being shoved fluff first into a cat-sized version of a party dress. And that’s what makes the Algonquin’s fashion show that much more enjoyable to watch. After the jump, some additional participants in this year’s stroll down the runway. Keep reading »
The world keeps trying to make Brit model/It-Girl Alexa Chung happen stateside. Chung previously hosted MTV’s midday chat show, “It’s On With Alexa Chung,” and will soon be seen in the new PBS series “Thrift America,” where she travels around the U.S. looking for hidden thrift and vintage treasures (the fact that this is a job that someone can have makes me unbelievably jealous).

Fashion designer and frequent Lady Gaga collaborator, Thierry Mugler, premiered his men’s collection this week, and along with it, released a very salacious photo magazine called Brothers of Arcadia. It features scantily clad male models with incredible abs and firm butts. We’ve secured a few of the more SFW images from the mag — for your educational purposes, of course. Enjoy them after the jump! Keep reading »
Dying for new Lady Gaga? Sure you are. But if you want to hear new Gaga you’re going to have to score yourself a ticket to designer Thierry Mugler’s menswear show in Paris on Wednesday. Mugler designer Nicola Formichetti, who’s designed clothes for Gaga in the past, snagged the Mama Monster to be “musical director” of her show. Some say Gaga will offer up never-before-heard remixes from her new album, due out in May. We wish we could be there. [WWD] Keep reading »
Recession? What recession? From looking at this video of the launch party for Sonia Rykiel’s H&M lingerie collection
, you’d think we’re living in an economy of decadence. Held at the Grand Palais in Paris, the event was nothing short of crazy (in a good way)—the place was decked out with twinkling lights, miniature Eiffel Towers, and balloon sculptures. The collection was presented in a parade of baton twirlers, marching geese, and floats where models were swinging from chandeliers or cycling on stationary bikes. While a bit on the kooky side, it all looked pretty fun, and très, très Parisienne. [YouTube
