There’s something fundamentally cheesy about celebrities who model their own clothing. And when that clothing is lingerie — it’s even worse. To top it off, the Kardashian girls are practically unrecognizable in their ad. They are so heavily airbrushed they border on cartoon characters. Did I mention they’re orange? I realize this is how it’s done now, but it’s ridiculous.
There’s a girl on the cover of Ocean Drive Magazine who claims to be Nicole Richie, but I’m not so sure. In fact, the image is so heavily airbrushed it looks like a cartoon character. I certainly love Nicole Richie, and I think she’s beautiful. I’m just wondering where she is.
Cindy Crawford rightfully decided not to whore-out her ten year old daughter to the fashion world. Though her daughter recently modeled Versace’s children’s line, Crawford said, “At this point, she’s too young to pursue a career. There aren’t even a handful of jobs for a 10-year-old girl.” This is good news. I was actually pretty disgusted by the photos from the Versace line, because no one wants to see a sexualized 10 year old. Perhaps Crawford should have a conversation with Kris Jenner.
When Jean Paul Gaultier paid “tribute” to Amy Winehouse during Paris Fashion Week, Winehouse’s family was not pleased. Her father said, “It portrays a view of Amy when she was not at her best, and glamorizes some of the more upsetting times in her life.” Though I love Jean Paul Gaultier and I thought the fashion show was extraordinary, I agree that it bordered on bad taste. Most people remember Amy Winehouse’s fashion choices during her least stable time period. And in hopes of remembering her when she was at her best, I’ve posted a vintage interview below. And as an aside — Amy Winehouse was fucking brilliant. To see pictures from the fashion show, click here.
Though my older brother will never admit it, I taught him how to tie his shoes. After all, women are smarter than men, right? But after watching the video below, it appears I taught him incorrectly. Thanks to Terry Moore and TED, my shoelaces will never come untied again. Watch and enjoy.
How many Kardashian sisters does it take to screw in a light bulb? I’m not sure why that’s a relevant question, nor am I sure why it’s necessary to go topless to model a denim line. Sure it draws attention to the denim, or their boobs — whatever strikes your fancy. But the idea of using sex to sell clothes is dated and boring. Plus, there’s an age shelf life on this tactic, and unless they start planning their transition now — I imagine they’ll be at a complete loss very soon.
I have a very fashionable gay friend who insists that a woman should never wear flats — under any circumstances. The revelation was devastating, and I think of his disapproval every time I slip on my very comfortable ballet flats around the office. As it turns out, my friend is wrong. According to Tim Gunn, certain styles and circumstances allow for the more comfortable alternative. Watch below.
There’s narcissism — and then there’s narcissism. Though Karl Legerfeld is an unequivocal fashion genius, only an ego-maniac would interview himself. I realize that this is simply an idea gone wrong, rather than a representation of his character, but let this be a lesson to everyone. Only Alec Baldwin could pull off the idea below. Watch and enjoy.
