PULLTEETH: White After Labour Day

Fashion faux-pas have quickly become a hot topic for me here on MTV Fora. Exploring the possibilities of debunking fashion stereotypes and reinventing them to become a fashion statement is just so interesting. The idea that there are strict fashion “rules” to abode by just seems crazy. So, for todays post, we are going to explore one of the most universally known fashion rules – “No White After Labour Day”. read more…

TRENDING: Holey Sh*t

We love us some holey sh*t. Not only is it visually and texturally interesting, but it also benefits as an unconventional ventilation system. What better way to stay cool (literally) come summer? #Win. read more…

HEADLINES: Blake Annoys, Karlie Ages, and SJP Puts More Ridiculous Crap on Her Head.

Ugh! I don’t know why, but this photo just irks me! Blake Lively would be that girl getting carried out of a party honouring Christian Louboutin BY Christian Louboutin himself. She WOULD make it all about her! I wonder why he adores her so. It probably has nothing to do with the fact that she once bought 40 pairs of Loubs at a single sample sale. WHO DOES THAT? (Popsugar)

Once it hits your lips … Elisabetta Canalis got a taste of the limelight with George and now, well, she can’t help herself! She started the week off making weird comments about her relationship with ‘fatherly’ GC to the press and yesterday she got papped with her new HOT boyfriend Mehcad Brooks of HBO’s True Blood. You stretch that 15 minutes, girl! (Too Fab)

SJP went to some luncheon in Australia yesterday, the details of which are unimportant, and wore a ridiculous Philip Treacy hat. This thing is the size of a freaking planet. Why? When did ‘obstructive’ become synonymous with ‘fashionable’? (ABC News)

Good Lord, would she just stop giving interviews! Hasn’t Papa Joe figured out by now that Jessica’s sound bites are bad for business? Her latest, brilliant revelation? “The decision not to make myself anorexic was actually great for branding because when you’re really, really skinny, not everybody can relate to you.” So true, Jess.  SO true. (Lucky)

There are a few moments in a model’s career that solidify you’ve made it. Karlie Kloss has just reached one of them. The model of the moment has just earned her wings. And by ‘earned’ I mean ‘has finally turned 18’. (Fashionologie)

The world is learning more and more about Sarah Burton. For instance, did you know that the celebrated successor of Alexander McQueen ALMOST turned down the job of designing Kate Middleton’s wedding dress? So basically; did you know Sarah was ALMOST an idiot? (Fashionista)

Fendi was asked to create four new fashion gelato flavors. What made the cut? Fan di Fendi, Mozzarella, Aspirin and Diet Coke. Naturally. (Refinery 29)

HEADLINES: Alaia is Chillin’ Like A Villian, Scarjo Knows Her Best Angles for Nudie Pics, and Jessica Simpson is Pregnant. Yawn.

Scarlett Johansson covers this month’s Vanity Fair and despite being notoriously private the actress reveals that THOSE photos were only intended for her ex-hubby’s eyes. As for those racy poses? Scarjo simply says, “I know my best angles.” Whoa! Scarlett and Ryan were basically recluses their entire marriage and now she’s over-sharing and he’s getting papped every 5 minutes with Blake. What’s going on? (Popsugar)

It’s official. Jessica Simpson is pregnant. The sky is blue. Bears shit in the forest. Yawn. (People)

Now this is a collaboration I can get on board with! Will Smith’s Overbook Entertainment and Queen Latifah’s Flavor Unit are set to produce a daytime talk show hosted by my Queenie! Yes, her production company is called Flavor Unit! FLAVOR UNIT! How can you not love this woman? I’m telling you Queenie is the shit. (The Hollywood Reporter)

Before the Chloe Paddington, even before the Fendi Spy there was the Fendi Baguette. Some say it was EVEN the first ever ‘It’ bag. Baguette had her day in the sun (namely on the arm of Carrie Bradshaw) but as with all things ‘It’ her popularity soon faded. Long story short – hope you didn’t donate yours to Goodwill because that bitch is back! (The Purse Blog)

Vogue Italia’s latest spread features an editorial of models riding the … subway!? In couture, no less! Yeah, because that’s exactly where I would wear my one-of-a-kind billion dollar creation; on the crusty ass subway! (The Gloss)

Geeze the more I learn about Azzedine Alaia the more I really, really like him. The sometimes Single Lady  seems like a really easy-going and chill guy. When asked about fast-fashion retailers like H&M and Zara Alaia responded, “Listen, everyone copies.” Word. (Stylite)

Where were these Brandages when we were writing our Useless Designer Things piece? (Animal NY)

MORE KNITS LIKE THIS PLEASE!

Karl Lagerfeld has done it again! Though, I guess that’s a redundant statement. Because really, when does he not ‘do it’? You know? Regardless, his Spring 2012 line for Fendi was no exception as Karl brought it and brought it hard. Offering some balance to the loud and proud florals we had seen back in New York; Karl showed a very wearable and chic line. That being said … you know we play favourites; were not the diplomatic type. So what were our favourite pieces? These amazing cable-knit sweaters with a twist. And no, I am not just referring to the twisted cable detail.

At first glance you wouldn’t necessarily notice how spectacular and different these knits are. However, under closer inspection … read more…
