Move over Hailee Steinfeld, there’s a new face of Miu Miu, and it’s fellow actress Mia Wasikowska.

One Dress, 3 Covers, Big Drama

Miu Miu has some explaining to do. Somehow, the exact same dress from the Fall 2010 runway just appeared on the three different magazine covers, meaning the editors at British Vogue, British Elle, AND W are none too pleased! Now technically, there are a few variations in the design: while the colors are different, the…

Miu Miu Inspired By Jodie Foster’s “Taxi Driver” Look?

Is it just us, or do the models in Miu Miu’s Resort 2011 campaign look suspiciously like teenage hookers? We’re a little bit in love with the shoes, but the whole mommy’s makeup, too-much-jewelry, Jodie Foster in “Taxi Driver” thing makes us feel a little awkward. [Fashion Copious]…

Photoshop Of Horrors: Lindsey Wixson

Guess How Much These Miu Miu Socks Cost

And now for the latest in the ridiculously overpriced things saga … a pair of Miu Miu socks, featuring embellished doo-dads (no details on what exactly they are, but looks like buttons and aluminum charms to us) on 100 percent cotton.

Bartering With Sex

Sex is all about give and take. A study at the University of Michigan School of Public Health found that even though 475 U of M undergrads didn’t need to use sex to get provisions (that’s what parents’ bank accounts are for), many did use it to get other things — help with Econ 302,…
