You’d Better Work!

This is why I love Marc Jacobs. Just like me, he views every beach outing as a saucy photoshoot opportunity. [Saint Barthelemy, France, 12/29/09] Keep reading »

How Do We Feel About Fanny Packs?

Personally, I hate fanny packs. To me, they represent crowds at amusement parks and tourists in Europe that give Americans a bad name. You know what I’m talking about. But Marc Jacobs is trying to bring back the pack, as he sent his models down the runway during the Louis Vuitton Spring 2010 show sporting the design. I’ll admit, there are trends that are brilliant on the runway that will never work in real life, and this should have been one. But no. Rihanna‘s clearly feeling the heinous trend, and even wore the same accessory TWICE in London. She must really love her fanny pack. But what do you think? Keep reading »

Dig Out Your Scrunchies — They’re Back In Style!

When I think of scrunchies, I remember that scene in “Sex and the City” where Carrie tries to convince Berger that the hair accessory is just so not a New York thing. It wasn’t then, and it hasn’t been for quite some time. But now Marc Jacobs has decided it’s time for the massive hair tie to come back into fashion, and along with his blessing comes the new, more chic title of “hair furniture.” No, it’s not furniture made of hair (which I originally imagined and cringed), but rather the idea that your head should be dressed up with massive adornments. Personally, I’m all about the understated glamour when it comes to hair and really not ready to travel back to the ’90s via neon scrunchies. Are you? [Guardian] Keep reading »

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 as what the Alexander Wangs and Karl Lagerfelds of the world have to say doesn’t quite match up with what you see on the runway. So we decided to take a closer look at what a handful of top designers had to say about their collections, and we’ve helpfully translated. [Guardian.co.uk] Keep reading »

Has The Fashion Industry Lost Its Mystique?

Along with the joys of the internet and immediate information comes some sense of a loss. It’s a race to get information first; runway shows can be streamed online now; with Twitter, fashion editors are commenting on trends right from the runway; and designers are participating in documentaries to show off their processes. Does all of this access take away the mystery of fashion? Keep reading »

Style Buzz: Marc In Makeup

  • Marc Jacobs celebrates NARS’ 15th anniversary by donning bright red lipstick. Isn’t that how you’d do it? [Refinery29]
  • Japanese fashion badass Yohji Yamamoto has filed for bankruptcy. (I guess people just aren’t buying lopsided two-toned suits like they used to.) Seriously though, this makes us sad. [The New York Times]
  • Apparently at a total loss for new things to try as their mags flounder, Conde Nast is launching a dating site for the wannabe stylish. Somehow, we aren’t totally convinced that this is a great idea. [Fashionista]
  • “Project Runway” is turning into a game for Nintendo Wii. We’re really hoping one of the game functions lets us adjust Heidi’s hemline and belly. [AP]

    Who Do You Want To See In An All-Gay Version Of “Real Housewives”?

    Perhaps you’ve heard the exciting rumors that the team behind the “Real Housewives” franchise has been working on a new all-gay version of the show. Well, apparently, it’s really going to happen … and soon! Casting will start in the next couple weeks and creators hope to begin production in November. The show is tentatively titled “Kept” and will air on the MTV-owned all-gay channel, Logo. It will focus on the lives of wealthy and fabulous gay playboys in Manhattan who love to party it up at the hottest clubs and swankiest parties. If you thought rich housewives could be drama, just wait till you see men who have flatirons and know how to use them. Keep reading »

    Louis Vuitton + Red Cross = ?

    For the Red Cross’s 150th Anniversary, Louis Vuitton and friends are joining forces to really celebrate in style. Photog Annie Liebovitz and artist Damien Hirst have each designed Louis Vuitton pieces for the collection to be auctioned off at Sotheby’s on November 17. Even Marc Jacobs got in on the action with a travel trunk for his dogs. Not only should this make you want to fly around the world, but it makes everyone else want to see you doing it. (Hey, a girl can dream, right?) After the jump, check out these soon-to-be auctioned items. Keep reading »

    Heads Up: Marc Jacobs Bag Sale Starts At Noon!

    You love the man, you love his work. But you can’t always afford the goods because The Man forces you to spend your money on more practical things like rent and food. Marc Jacobs handbags will never be recession-friendly, but Gilt Groupe is once again throwing us worker bees a break and selling a whole mess of ‘em at wholesale-ish prices. There’s the $695 Rad bag that will be on sale for $228 and the highly coveted Tess bag for $698 (down from $1750). Personally, I’ve got my eye on this Tote (above) which is $428 as opposed to $1195 and looks like it will fit a lot of my belongings, in case I really do spend my way out of my apartment. OK, let’s not even joke about stuff like that. Sale starts at noon ladies! Keep reading »

    Quick Pic: If You Can’t See Them, They Can’t See You

    Unlike her mummy Courtney Love, Francis Bean Cobain is clearly no media whore. The two partied down together in lower Manhattan at the Marc Jacobs show after-party (the same one where Lady Gaga basically went on stage naked). [NYC, 9/15/09] Keep reading »
