Karl Lagerfeld’s Shrine To Barbie And Ken

Karl Lagerfeld’s studio is featured in The Selby Is In Your Place, and there’s a preview of the space on TheSelby.com. When we first saw this photo, we thought, “Does Karl have a seriously weird Chace Crawford and Barbie obsession?” But then we realized it was a picture of Chanel model/muse Baptiste Giabiconi and a bunch of Barbies, which was part of Karl’s “Barbie and Ken” exhibit at Colette last March. But it’s still a little scary. [The Selby] Keep reading »

Fashionable Homes Right On Your Coffee Table

Thanks to The Selby, we’ve gone into the homes and apartments of fashion stars like Julia Restoin Roitfeld, Kim Hastreiter, and Aya Kanai. Now, we have a brand new book to add to the coffee table, one which will bring shame to our apartment decor. Despite what you may think about your own interior design skills, the individuals that Todd Selby chooses to highlight have filled their homes with brilliant style that only matches their own personal looks. Filled with 30 profiles, many of which have never been published before, we’re planning on using this book as inspiration to better our own living space. Order yours now for $35.00.

Tour A Vogue Fashion Assistant’s Home

We’ve all seen “The Devil Wears Prada” and caught a glimpse of Anne Hathaway’s character’s perfectly disheveled, and ginorm, downtown NYC apartment. (You wonder, if her boyfriend is a line cook and she’s an assistant, how do they pay the rent? Oh, yeah, it’s a movie.) Well, before you start thinking that movies imitate life, get a look inside one real fashion assistant’s home—in Japan. Even though Emi Kameoka works for Vogue Nippon, she’s got a pretty normal house in Tokyo (or is it her parents’ house?)—well, except for her insane Chanel stash, and even more bonkers “My Little Pony” collection. You can tell right away, this girl ain’t so much about what her space looks like and instead spends most of her paycheck on accessories and plastic horses. (Which, if she’s a young assistant starting out, pretty much fits with what I used to do. Drop all my cash on clothing and shoes and bags and not really give a second thought to where I was living.) She’s a must see—check out the insanity, after the jump! Keep reading »

Models Live Messily, Just Like Us!

We already know that models like to blog like us, but here’s a home tour we can really relate to as well. The Selby, this is not. Downtown photographer Kathy Lo snapped equally downtown-dwelling model, Hanne Gaby Odiele, in her messy, normal gal-looking apartment. See how the fashionable half lives—when they don’t pay someone to clean up after them! Computer cords littering the floor, cardboard boxes that have probably been there since she moved in, wine cork-screws left lying around … I sort of love it. It’s reality. (Especially when you are never at home and didn’t employ an interior designer, like so many un-supermodel models.) [Refinery 29] Keep reading »
