Kanye West Shoes

  • In an issue dedicated to celebrating the relationship between music and fashion, V magazine’s “The Queen Of Hip Hop” editorial appropriately features a top, skirt and shoes from Kanye West‘s debut collection.

  • The former managing director of Hermes France, Bruno Guillon, has recently joined British fashion label Mulberry as their new chief executive. He plans to help heavily transition the brand into Asian markets.

  • Boardwalk Empire actor Michael Pitt is the official face of Prada’s Spring/Summer 2012 menswear campaign – a David Sims-lensed look at the golden age Hollywood icon. According to the brand, Pitt “explores the language of male role models from the rock star to the playboy, from the self-reflective introvert to the engaging and humorous farceur. […] Contemporary men work when they play and play when they work. The boundaries are no longer clear – as the campaign’s simple props and gestures emphasize.”

    Unfortunately, I can only see him as a psychopath. Thanks, Funny Games.

  • DKNY is supplying the New York Rangers with their practice jerseys for the rest of the season! Never before have I wanted to be a hockey player!

  • GQ has awarded Jared Leto with the title of 2011’s worst dressed man, for looking “extravagantly terrible all year long.”

  • Though cotton topped out at $2.12 this year, prices have just dropped to 86.4 cents a pound. A step in the right direction!

  • Who’s face/body/photoshopping earned magazines the most moolah, this year? Jennifer Aniston, Heidi Klum, and Sarah Jessica Parker!

    Sarah Jessica Parker‘s Elle, Vogue, and Marie Claire covers were the second or third best-sellers for each publication; Heidi Klum‘s Lucky and Glamour covers were both magazines’ second best performers, and Jennifer Aniston gave Marie Claire its best-selling issue in July and pulled in major sales for her November Elle cover.

    Who didn’t do so well? Reese Witherspoon, whose covers marked below-average sales for Vogue, Marie Claire, and Glamour. Interestingly, magazines with Kim Kardashian on the cover were doing well in the beginning of 2011, yet as her so-called ‘sham’ marriage unfolded the numbers have started to look very poor.
    Fashion Magazines 2011

  • Singer John Legend proposed to model Chrissy Teigen this past weekend while they were on vacation in the Maldives! WEDDING PHOTO EXCITEMENT.

  • Alessandra Ambrosio just announced that she is pregnant with her second child! The model and her fiance, Jamie Mazur, already have a 3-year-old, and are looking forward to adding another member to the family in five months time.

    Yes, that does mean she was pregnant with strutting her flawless body down the Victorias Secret Fashion Show runway. Weep with me.

  • Guinevere Van Seenus Miu Miu

    Guinevere Van Seenus for Miu Miu

  • Looking good, Guinevere van Seenus! As you can probably tell, the ‘aged’ model has replaced 14-year-old actress Hailee Steinfeld as the face of Miu Miu. The upcoming resort ads were styled by Joe McKenna and lensed by David Sims.

  • Following in the footsteps of Giambattista Valli, Matthew Williamson, and Karl Lagerfeld, Macy’s has just tapped Doo-Ri Chung to be their next collaborator in the masstige market. His line will be launched on February 15th, and will hopefully be filled with his incredibly flattering cuts! (Trench coats, please, please, please).

  • In the past week, stock in Ugg boots has fallen an enormous 39%, with Crocs lagging not too far behind.

  • Tom Ford’s documentary, Tom Ford: Visionaries, airs tonight on OWN (nice job, Oprah), and looks as though it will finally offer an intimate, rare look at the fashion plate’s creative and personal processes.

  • Remember Karl Lagerfeld’s muse, Baptiste Giabiconi? Well, he is now a contestant on the French version of Dancing With The Stars and is often seen in body glitter. We can only hope Uncle Karl ends up in the audience at some point.

  • France’s First Lady, model/actress/singer Carla Bruni, just gave birth to her first child with President Nicolas Sarkozy at 43 years old. She was born at the Clinique de la Muette and her name is Giulia – congratulations, you two!

  • Now she is presumably finished with her role as the face of beauty company Mark, actress Ashley Greene has just been announced as the new face of DKNY and DKNY Jeans. Look forward to seeing the beautiful brunette in the brand’s Spring/Summer 2012 ad campaigns.

  • This has to be the greatest piece of marketing, ever. Rico/Rick Genest (aka Zombie Boy) paired up with cosmetics company Dermablend to create a video which covers his entire tattooed boy in ‘new skin’, and effectively proves their Leg and Body Cover to be the best concealer in the world. Their “Beyond The Cover” video campaign is the greatest thing my dark circles have ever seen.

  • October French Vogue 2010
