The Bitch is Getting Hitched, Alex Pettyifer has a Polite Crotch and Sarah Ferguson is advised to disappear. This and more in Today’s Fashion Headlines.

LB’s resident biatch, Kristin Cavallari flashed her engagement ring yesterday while leaving the gym in L.A. I wonder which proposal was more romantic, Cutler’s or Talon’s prom-posal? (StyleWatch)

Alex Pettyfer’s discusses his polite crotch and his hatred for the City of Angel’s in a new interview that doesn’t boast well for his tanking reputation. At least he never neglects to say “Thank You”.  (PopEater)

Word is Fergie Ferg Sr. (Duchess Sarah Ferguson was a hot mess before Mrs. Duhamel was even born) did not receive an invitation to the Royal Wedding. Even worse, she has reportedly been told to go low-pro on the day of the nuptials and “disappear.” I say go Charlie Sheen on them Ferg, and release a vlog detailing all the dirt you got on the Queen. I mean, it’s 2011 and we still have a freaking Queen? How come I can’t be a princess with a unicorn and live in Never-ever-land? (PopEater)

These shoes actually scare me. I am freaked right out at the sight of this sandal/shoe monstrosity. Dior, really?  You guys really need to get your ducks in a row over there. (Racked)

Casio watches, you know those standard digital watches that are normally gifted in Secret Santa’s because it’s sort of gender neutral and under the $20 limit, are the choice of hipsters and Al-Qaida alike. (Refinery 29)

The Olsen Twins land the cover of Newsweek. Is there anything these nuggets can’t do? It estimates that their clothing line The Row earned them $12 million in sales. On second thought maybe the Twins did the First Lady a favour and not the other way around. (Daily Front Row)

The cast of Dawson’s Creek was on hand last night at Irene Neuwirth’s launch of her new diamonds at Barney’s. How come they always leave Katie out? Does Tom/Scientology forbid friends? (Style File)

Karl Lagerfeld Thinks Andy Warhol Was Repulsive, Michelle Obama Rocks MK&A and Jessica Simpson is US Weekly’s Style Icon of the Year. This and more in Today’s Fashion Headlines:

Jessica Simpson has been named US Weekly’s Style Icon on the Year. Yes, I am telling the truth. Between the reindeer leggings, her incessant refusal to let go of Ugg’s, and the fact that lately she looks like a member of the cast of “Toddles and Tiaras” it is evident that Jessica is the obvious choice. Obviously. (Racked)

Karl Lagerfeld continues to be candid and ‘outlandish’ in interviews. Here is an archive of his most ridiculous quotes. This time he shares his love for Chanel and vanity and his disdain for smoking, Andy Warhol and ugly short men. It is unclear whether Andy Warhol was ugly because he is short or if he was ‘repulsive’ for an entirely different reason. (bellasugar)

Apparently I am not the only one who is, “so over the Royal Wedding already.” Turns out New Yorkers couldn’t give a flying fascinator about it either! (The Cut)

The fashion blogosphere cannot stop buzzing about Reed Krakoff’s $4,500 gym bag. It’s gorgeous, I get it, but if I was cool enough to own this bag, the last place I would be taking is a dirty, sweaty gym; python ain’t cheap girl. (Interview)

Franca Sozzani is on a crusade against pro-ano blogs, yet refers to ‘Black’ and ‘Curvy’ Vogue Readers a ‘ghetto’. She has even gone so far as to offer special web pages for her ‘Black’ and ‘Curvy’ readers. Blog segregation? Really!?! (The Cut)

Michelle Obama wore a skirt from The Row on “The View” last week. The stylish cream coloured silk skirt was crafted by non other than Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. When asked if they were psyched that the First Lady was wearing their skirt the girls both gave a thumbs-ups and said, “You Got It Dude!” in unison. (HuffPost Style)

Marchesa Designs for Playboy, Tyra Banks is Useless and Karl Lagerfeld Hates Thongs but Prefers Fax Machines; Here Are Today’s Fashion News Updates:



Marchesa has designed a one-of-a kind bunny costume in celebration of the new Playboy Club set to open June 4th in London. Marchesa has always been a housewife project for Georgina Chapman, making Barbie dresses for Weinstein’s young starlets, so designing for Playboy is pretty much a lateral move. (Vogue)

Gwyneth Paltrow has been named the new face of Coach. So not only will she be on soccer mom’s televisions (Glee, Country Strong and Batali’s groupie through Spain) but her mass-produced, logo-bearing bags will be on their arms as well. (The Cut)

Karl Lagerfeld discusses his affinity for ice cream, chocolate perfume and fax machines and his distaste for thongs in Thirty Minutes with Karl Lagerfeld. (W magazine)

Tyra Banks is sharing her unparalleled fashion knowledge once again in another installment of Fa-Fa-Fa Fashion. This time Tyra tackles skinny jeans, through an over-acted skit, stating that big pockets on your booty make your ba donk look smaller. Genius. Who is funding this garbage? And is Ms. Wintour happy about Andre Leon Talley’s involvement with this stupidity? I’m guessing, no. (StyleWatch)

And the Golden Top Hat goes to … (drum roll) Gwen Stefani, Cameron Diaz and Aretha Franklin! The Headwear Association has announced this year’s honoured celebrities that never neglect their noggin. And everyone thought Aretha’s bow hat was nothing but a loser, who’s laughing now Aretha? Winning. (InStyle)
