Sneak Peek: Rihanna’s New Video For “Rockstar 101″

Here’s 29 seconds from Rihanna‘s soon-to-be-released video for her new song, “Rockstar 101.” Alongside fashion-and-music peers Christina Aguilera and Lady Gaga, Rihanna is rocking the latex look and wears a brilliant scarlet wig. It’s a little bit Thierry Mugler, a little bit Rachael from “Blade Runner,” and not at all ’80s hair band. I think Rihanna is great, and she looks terrific, but I wouldn’t mind seeing her in a music video where she does something other than rub her hands all over herself. Agree?

Thierry Mugler To Launch New Fragrance: Womanity

The reclusive designer Thierry Mugler has emerged from the shadows to announce he will be launching his first fragrance in five years, and it’s called Womanity. We wrote about the Womanity website here previously, which rants on about the invisible bond between women, something, one imagines, that is supposedly embodied in this scent. According to WWD, “womanity” is “a made-up word meant to associate with femininity, humanity and city.” What any of those things have to do with each other, and why commodified feminism is being used to sell perfume, I don’t know. Personally, I’m a huge fan of Mugler’s fragrances — I wear Angel Rose and Alien on a regular basis — but I don’t need some pseudo-gender politics to get me to buy it. Reportedly, Womanity smells of figs and caviar, and it will be available online in June for $58 an ounce. [Styleist] Keep reading »

Fashion Man Thierry Mugler Launches Weird “Womanity” Site

French fashion designer Thierry Mugler has launched a women’s website called Womanity. We can’t quite understand how it’s supposed to function or what it’s supposed to promote—the content functions as a sort of user-generated tag cloud (well, a very visually-pleasing tag cloud), where people submit their interpretations of what “Womanity” is. The tagline, “The invisible bond between women,” seems to sum up the obtuseness of the project as Mugler projects his own vague explanation, saying, “I think that women should define the framework of Womanity.” As for the general inspiration behind it, he says: “I began by thinking about women of today, filled with incredible energy, who are all go, always on the move … It’s the energy of women. The energy of having children, the energy of raising them, the energy of handling them, the energy of giving, and on top of all that, the energy of playing, looking good, having fun and living, with joy, frankness and honesty.”

Energy. Women. Do you get it? What do you think? [Womanity.co.uk] Keep reading »

Beauty Test Drive: All We Want For Xmas Is A Little Bling

The holiday beauty gift sets are rolling out to stores and well, let’s just say some are better than others. This Thierry Mugler Alien combo, $75, is one of the former. There are plenty of Angel fans out there, but if you haven’t had the pleasure of smelling the lesser known Alien it’s a little tougher and, I think, chicer with a core scent of Moroccan jasmine and an effervescent (and surprising) tangerine top note rounded out with white amber and Kashmir wood. In short, it’s the perfect winter fragrance, it smells absolutely delicious, and I’ve been spritzing it on before dinner which makes me feel terribly glamorous. This season, they’re selling this limited-edition, Swarovski bedazzled, 30ml refillable container served up with a side of gold wax that’s perfect to use as a highlighter for your cheekbones and décolleté. Yum. [Thierry Mugler] Keep reading »

Chris March Files Lawsuit Against Thierry Mugler Over Beyonce’s Costumes

Chris March is usually very jovial and humble when he’s competing on “Project Runway,” but sometimes a man has to put his foot down if he’s being disrespected. March has filed a lawsuit against fellow designer Thierry Mugler for allegedly not paying him for the work he did on Beyoncé’s “I Am” tour costumes. Now hold on a sec before you get all hot and bothered. Mugler did design the costumes, but March executed them because he’s used to designing for the stage and “wild” dancing. March says he had to figure out a way to attach a harness into one of Beyoncé’s costumes and had to mold corsets to fit her figure perfectly. Everything was going smoothly, says March, until he submitted his last payment invoice after getting the finished costumes to Edmonton, Canada by March 26, the day of Beyoncé’s first show. March says Mugler left for Paris without paying anyone. (Beyoncé had paid Mugler and he was supposed to pay his team.) March told The Cut, “There’s just been a refusal to pay with no reason.”

This seems to be an oversight. I doubt Mugler handles his own invoices. Though, it’s too bad that the seven-year work relationship between these two has to end this way. Keep reading »
