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.

  • 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.

  • Fashion Week benches

  • The benches broke at Balenciaga‘s show for Spring/Summer 2012 at Paris Fashion Week, leaving Anna Wintour and many other attendees to partake in an unintentional standing ovation.

  • Former editrix of French Vogue, Carine Roitfeld, is set to launch her own magazine! In an interview for Dazed & Confused, she expressed hopes to launch a “really iconic magazine that’s fresh and exciting” which won’t be monthly but will be printed in English. The debut issue is penned to launch for September 2012.

  • In crazy-English-people news, Liverpool-born fashion designer Rachel Freire has caused many people to clutch their pearls by making a rosette-looking dress composed of 3,000 protruding cow nipples. As you may assume, animal-rights groups aren’t at all pleased.

  • Andrej Pejic has been invited to meet The Queen. He is part of an Australian and fashion-filled group that will attend a reception at Buckingham Palace.

  • Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux recently had a photo set taken by Terry Richardson. Engagement photos? Not confirmed, but the tabloids will surely say so!

  • Emmy winner Melissa McCarthy, of Gilmore Girls and Bridesmaids fame, recently told the Hollywood Reporter that after designing her own Emmy gown in collaboration dressmaker Daniella Pearl, she plans to launch an entire line for plus-size women.

    “Trying to find stuff that’s still fashion-forward in my size is damn near impossible. It’s either for like a 98-year-old woman or a 14-year-old hooker, and there is nothing in the middle.”

  • Nicola Formichetti‘s show for Mugler opened with a short film of Lady Gaga by Inez & Vinoodh. In the video, below, Mother Monster shows the audience her buck teeth and suggests that you “don’t fuck with me” and “don’t fuck with Mugler.” The Wall Street Journal’s Christina Binkley tweeted, “I have rarely seen so many pissed off people rush out of a fashion show. Mugler. #pfw No new trends there” in response.

  • Nicole Kidman Blonde The Paperboy
    Upon first glance, I thought Jennifer Aniston was having a very peculiar day out. Then, I came to realise the above photo was actually of Nicole Kidman. Turns out throwing on some blonde dye, 30 pounds of make-up, and an updated version of “The Rachel” can be quite confusing for a Kidman fan. Though the make-over has been constructed while she’s filming “The Paperboy”, this might be my favourite hair hue of hers. I hope she keeps it, but loses the hairspray/flat iron.

    Kate Bosworth Dip Dye Hair
    And then there was Kate. Kate Bosworth to be exact. Last night, she attended a Coldplay concert (strange – as she was rumoured to be Gwyneth Paltrow‘s “other woman” a while back) wearing a gorgeous Misssoni blouse, and debuting a new dip-dyed teal hairstyle. The Tumblr babies are going to love this one.

    Jennifer Aniston Allure
    What the hell, Allure magazine? Jennifer Aniston is one of those otherworldly goddess creatures who require little to no Photoshop…and you have turned her plastic. This cover is incredibly flat, with no trace of the beautiful ‘Rachel Green‘ we all fell in love with years ago. What do you think, Jen?
