TRENDING: Buggy Jewelry

Bug pins. Here we are, witnessing – in this Summer of 2012 – a peculiar trend in jewelry. It started with spotting a giant bug pin on this lady at Metropolitan Museum’s Costume Institute Gala. Uh, sure. And while crawling our RSS feeds, we found a whack more bug pins. Apparently this buggy trend is creeping up everywhere and in every form; in rose-gold, yellow-gold – even encrusted in diamonds. So, maybe bug pins work after all. But let’s stick to cute things like lady bugs and butterflies and ditch the cockroaches. read more…

HEADLINES: Hats are Back, Bikinis Are Shrinking, and Anna Sui Makes Coach Tackier (Yes, It’s Possible!)

I have a serious wardrobe issue with GQ’s latest spread featuring Jennifer Anniston and Paul Rudd. Did she have to be SO naked? While he’s wearing a full suit, no less. And if you’re going to a do a bra, DO a bra! The boring black is just not doing it for me. P.S. who knew Paul was so hip, name checking Devendra Banhart – nice! (GQ)

Rihanna’s Grammy manicure cost $5,000. FIVE THOUSAND DOLLARS! Psh, and I think it’s ridiculous when my mani/pedi costs more than $45. (People)

Oprah tells off a Whitney hater over Twitter. Man, I love the Internet. (Buzzfeed)

Can someone please tell me when panty liners became the new bikini bottom? (USA Today)

So I take it hats are back. (FabSugar)

Joseph Altuzarra has invited Lana Del Ray to the Met Ball. Hate to join the haters but, WHY? She is not worthy! The things I would do to attend the Met Ball … (Fashionista)

Anna Sui has been tapped to redesign Coach’s Duffle Sac. In her own words, “The Anna Sui version adds a boho feeling with Whipstitching, big tassels and appliquéd Art Nouveau dragonflies.” Because Coach bags haven’t gotten tacky enough? (The Gloss)

So what do you when you are not invited to the Grammy’s? You get desperate and end up crashing NYFW looking like this. (Too Fab)

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)
