Quick Vid: Lara Stone Shows How (Not) To Rob Chanel Boutiques

Sometimes Karl Lagerfeld likes to make “art.” This means that he films something in black and white, tries to impersonate Truffaut, and adds a sultry girl dressed up in Chanel.

Do You Speak Fashion? Let Us Translate.

When it comes to highbrow fashion, even we get a bit lost when it comes to reading the obtuse critiques of fashion journalists or hearing the vague, but supposedly deep, inspirations from designers. Today, the Guardian proudly calls out the incoherent information fashion designers spit out to “explain” their collections. And quite rightly, seeing a…

Some Designers Really Hate Fat Women (Like Barbie!)

It’s all about change in the fashion world right now — designers are livestreaming their runway shows (or trying anyway), shoppers can snap up fall Chloe bags on their iPhones, and magazines like Glamour and Marie Claire are making an effort to include plus-size women in their formerly stick-thin pages. But not everyone is dow…

Karl Lagerfeld Is Watching His Figurine

Seems like Karl Lagerfeld has been lightening up recently which is nice, because, really dude, why so serious? Now the K-man’s image is getting a makeover in the form of a 10-inch collectible.

Karl Lagerfeld’s Tech-Friendly iPhone Gloves

That whole “heart on your sleeve” stuff is so retro. From now on, a new digital-age-appropriate adage: “She wears her iPhone on her hand.” Perhaps this is what Karl Lagerfeld was angling for when these iPhone glove holders showed up in his Fall ’09 runway show. The fingerless, leather gloves feature a ruched strap that…

Video: Karl Lagerfeld’s Couture Ballerina

Most of us gave up our prima ballerina dreams right around plié. We’re starting to think we should have stuck with things, because apparently the payoff can include dancing your heart out in Chanel’s couture atélier.

Which Celebs Should Asexuals Look Up To?

It’s like a word association game. Say the word “asexual” and the first thing people say is Clay Aiken. Poor Clay got stuck as the poster boy for asexuality when he told New York magazine that he had no libido.“I just don’t have an interest in … any of that at all. I have got…

Twitter Tirades: Stars — They Tweet Like Us!

Reading celebrity Twitters is like flipping to US Weekly‘s “They’re Just Like Us!” section. They whine about bad TV, do battle with technology, and wonder what other people think of them.

Five Batty Things Karl Lagerfeld (Supposedly) Does

Meet Arnaud Maillard, Karl Lagerfeld’s former assistant. He wanted to quit to take a different job, Karl fired him first (!), and poor Arnaud said he’s been “jobless” ever since.
