Elsa Schiaparelli once said, “In difficult times fashion is always outrageous.” If Galliano’s brash behaviour and Vivian Westwood’s complete disregard for the conservative aren’t testament enough to the sincerity of this statement then brace yourself for an outrageous read. Uncensored, unapologetic, and completely obscene, we’re running down the most outgraegous ‘he said she saids’ of the fashion world. Take it away, Karl… read more…

HEADLINES: H&M Hates Real Women, Alec Baldwin Loves Words With Friends an Unhealthy Amount, and Nicole Richie May Be Heading to Halston.
Alec Baldwin was asked to leave an Amercian Airlines flight for playing “Words With Friends”. Alec’s rep explains, “Alec was asked to leave the flight for playing WWF while parked at the gate. He loves WWF so much that he was willing to leave a plane for it.” Now that’s SERIOUS love. (People)
H&M has admitted to sticking real model’s heads on computer-generated bodies. Seriously?!?! (Amy Pohler voice) And women are supposed to love their bodies and not be affected by unrealistic standards in the media? Thanks for making that impossible H&M. (Huff Post Style)

Dita Von Teese says being beautiful takes practice. Well then she must have been practising since birth cause girl is gorgeous! (People Style Watch)
Rumour has it that Andre Leon Talley will be making his exit from America’s Next Top Model fairly soon. They all leave Tyra eventually and who could blame them? I wonder who is harder to work for Anna Wintour or Tyra Banks; my money’s on Tyra! So who is slotted to replace ALT on ANTM? None other than Kelly Cutrone! I like this; maybe she can bring Tyra back down to earth. (The Cut)
So Duchess Kate Middleton hit up her local Topshop the other night. She gave the store no warning of her arrival and did not show up with any visible security. Because she’s just one of us right? So what did she buy? Probably the most boring Topshop pieces I’ve ever seen; proving my theory, yet again, that the Royals can’t dress themselves and lack any sense of style! Maybe less shopping for yourself and more service to your country? (People)
Rev Run’s coolest daughter, Angela Simmons¸ is the latest z-list star to bare it all for PETA. Looking good naked with a monstrous weave, Angela urges people to ‘go vegetarian’.

Keith Richard’s wife (I’m sure she has a name, but would it make a difference?) has launched a handbag line. Seriously? Do these celebrity wives have nothing better to do?

Nicki Minaj hit up the iHeartRadio Festival this weekend sporting this unlikely necklace. Not a surprise coming from Nicki Nicki. Actually compared to what she wore at NYFW this is rather tame. Is it wrong that I think this Pepto-dipped chicken wing still looks delicious? (Refinery 29)
HEADLINES: Andre Leon Talley Lives in an Ali Baba Cave of Delight (sounds about right…) and Maggie the Model makes us happy.
I thought Lady Gaga was the poster girl for equality? Well, not so much it seems as Gaga was spotted wearing a John Galliano gown recently. Pretty sure anti-Semitism is anti-equality, but what do I know? (Elle)
Vena Cava decided to forgo Fashion Week this year and instead opted for a star studded look book starring Maggie Gyllenhaal. Love so much that Maggie is their ideal model. Her beauty is far too underrated! (Style.com)
Why must Tom Sturridge always feel himself up in public? His girl Sienna does not look impressed; nor should she. Just look at that treasure trail! I use the word “treasure” loosely here. REALLY loosely. (PopSugar)
Britney Spears and Jason Trawick were in London over the weekend to celebrate the kickoff of Brit’s Femme Fatale UK Tour. And Brit looked hot! Not “I’m a Slave” hot but “I’ve had two kids and a mental breakdown but I still got it hot.” Will the glossiness of her eyeballs ever go away? (Daily Mail)
Andre Leon Talley never invites friends over to his Westchester home because
