Paris has been awash with fashions and celebrities and celebrity fashion designers for the past week, so it makes sense that International Fashions Model and Sublime Cigarette Smoker Kate Moss would be there, with her husband Jamie Hince. But also there? Almost An Oscar Winner Jesssica Chastain, with her beau, the very Italianly named Gian Luca Passi de Preposulo.
Because I am basically an overgrown high-schooler, I want to know: Who do you think is the cuter couple?

Aaaaand it’s a wrap! After New York, London, Milan, and finally 9 long, show-filled days in Paris, Fashion Month is over. We’ll certainly miss the constant flow of impressive new looks, both on the runway and in the streets… but we can’t imagine that the globe-trotting editors and fashionistas who have to actually cover each individual show in person share our sentiments. Fashion can be exhausting, you know. We’re finishing off Paris with Hermès, Louis Vuitton, Miu Miu, and Elie Saab. Until next season! Keep reading »
After three weeks in New York, London, and Milan, we’ve finally made it to Paris. There are so many shows during Paris Fashion Week that it can be easy to lose track, so we’re catching up on the past 4 days with the headliners. Christian Dior, Céline, Chloé, Givenchy, Saint Laurent, Chanel, Valentino, and Alexander McQueen — yes, all of those— right this way… Keep reading »
Garrett Hedlund and Kirsten Dunst are such an ugly couple. They make me sick. At least these two fuggos found each other, because nobody else would want to date them, am I right? No, but seriously, how cute is it that Garrett escorted his lady to the Yves Saint Laurent show? Dreams, baby, dreams. [Photo: FameFlynet]
After three weeks in New York, London, and Milan, we’ve finally made it to Paris. Many of the most important shows of the season just so happen to run in Paris — you might even be able to say that the city is the original home of the industry itself. The coming week is a glorious show-filled doozy, so ready your Style.com account and your computer’s zoom feature. We’re covering the past 3 days with Alexis Mabille, Dries Van Noten, Rochas, Ann Demeulemeester, Balmain, and Alexander Wang’s debut collection at the house of Balenciaga. Let’s see how it turned out… Keep reading »
When we talk about the hair at fashion shows, we generally mean the hair on the models, not the hair on the clothes. Charlie Le Mindu certainly didn’t have convention in mind when he presented Metal Queen, his “haute coiffeur” collection, on the runway in Paris during Couture Week. “I wanted to do a collection that was inspired by the women who scare me and have a lot of charisma. So that’s why the models look like kind of sexy monsters — I want them to scare men,” said Le Mindu of his line, which features, yes, human hair (culled from extensions, no scalping necessary) protruding from the designs in every which way. Sure, why not? I mean, don’t you ever wake up in the morning and say to yourself, What I really need in my wardrobe is more human hair? [WWD]
Guys, I have a really tough job. I have to spend part of today ogling hot male models, looking for cool new menswear looks from the Paris fashion shows. Shed a few tears for me, will you? I’ve slaved over this gallery of hot guys in looks we love, just for you. Take a look, please.
Just look at this trio of beauties sitting front row at the Miu Miu show at Paris Fashion Week! It’s like a style sandwich with Emma Stone filling, and damn, they’re all killing it. I love how each lady has a very different look: there’s Amanda in a fierce red pantsuit and super trendy purple lipstick, Emma in a structured black dress and red lips, and Dianna in a mod colorblocked ensemble. Flawless fashion, times three. [Getty Images]
Marc Jacobs’ designing is often rife with a pastiche of cultural references from the past. His latest collection for Louis Vuitton is no different, directly pulling from mod ’60s styles. While the collection was pretty, and pretty unsurprising, its display was anything but: Jacobs sent his models down one of four specially painted escalators, which gave the show the appearance of being at a very, very high end mall.
Depressingly enough, I often find Jessica Chastain to be the walking manifestation of When Bad Clothes Happen To Fabulous People (see Exhibits A, B, and C), but this is one look that I can definitely get behind. The actress showed up to Hedi Slimane’s first show for the newly-coined Saint Laurent in her YSL best, wearing the brand’s legendary Le Smoking jacket over a pretty polka-dot frock with a nipped-in waist. An updo and a deep crimson lip, along with the classic jacket, could nudge this look into too-old territory, but Jessica looks pretty damn fresh to me.
