FYI: The Most Intriguing/Amazing Runway Makeup

Runway makeup is a skill well worth the acknowledgment, and over the years, makeup artists and visionaries have had to come up with ideas fresher and more unique than years preceding them. With colours, liners and /miscellaneous/ craft pieces, these artists have accomplished much more than just making the models look good and fashionable; they have been able to cast an image and a sensation that reflects the influence from which the clothes were created. They help tell a story that is created by the collection, and it’s important to revisit the most exhilarating and original ideas in runway makeup so WE TOO can be ~inspired~ to paint our faces JUST LIKE the ~visions~ from the face-painting ~visionaries~. read more…

A Tale of Designer Switcheroos

Time travels in the fashion world a lot faster than it does in the real world. The new Wang booties you bought last week will be outdated by the time the snow clears. Taking this time warp into consideration, I’ll start my story off with “A long time ago, in a far away land…” (Because one year in fashion speak, is in fact,  ‘long time ago’). read more…

HEADLINES: Lily Allen Gives Birth, Lady Gaga is a Single Lady, and H&M Collaborates with Marni!

Another day, another dollar, another collaboration. Preview the upcoming Marni for H&M collection; hitting stores March 8th 2012. Don’t tell Donatella, but we are ACTUALLY excited for this one! (Fashionologie)

It’s official. Marc Jacobs is definitely NOT going to Dior, and neither is anyone else. The seemingly endless search for John Galliano’s replacement rages on; with no clear choice in sight. Is it possible Galliano is irreplaceable? (Fashionista)

Miranda Kerr visited Chelsea Lately yesterday to discuss natural child birth, her hubby Orly, and Flynn’s love of Hip Hop.Chelsea was as baffled with the idea of drug-free birth as we are! Who does that? Anyhow, I will never get over the way Aussies say the word “so” with their accents. (Popsugar)

Lady Gaga tells the latest issue of Vanity Fair that she is destined to be single. Of her previous relationships Gaga says; “the attraction is initially there and it’s all unicorns and rainbows. And then they hate me.” Who could hate Gaga? She’s got some love to give! (People)

According to WWD, retailers everywhere were pleasantly surprised by the booming success of last week’s Black Friday. Apparently people are spending, regardless of the economic climate. Well, Americans are anyways. (The Cut)

Lily Allen had a baby girl over the weekend! Congrats! Do you think motherhood will mellow out hard partying Lily? (In Style)

The tried-and-true take-out bag gets a make-over! A high-end replica of the generic take-out bag seen all over New YorkCity has been produced in leather. If you do cave and buy this adorable bag, please do not put greasy take-out in it! (The Purse Blog)

HEADLINES: Bradley is Sexy, Diddy is a Back-Up, and Dior is ‘Paralyzed’.

Bradley Cooper is officially The Sexiest Man Alive – well according to People Magazine anyways. Delusional Bradley describes himself as a, “a decent-looking guy.” Clearly he has never seen a mirror. (People)

My favourite couple of the moment, Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone, was spotted out and about inNew York City. The two have been camera-shy thus far in their relationship; walking recent red carpets separately. Boo, all I want is some PDA! (Popsugar)

Everyone has a back-up guy. You know, the guy you call when you’re between relationships and just want to hook-up. Cameron Diaz’s back-up guy is Diddy – and the two have been nuzzling and making out everywhere. (US Weekly)

So there has been some debate over Kim Kardashian’s Marie Claire interview, leaving most asking; is this evidence that the marriage was a sham? Well, no one has quite answered that question as of yet, and frankly I am losing interest. (Fashionista)

The newest rumour to circulate about Dior and John Galliano’s successor; they simply cannot make a decision. Reportedly the brand is “paralyzed” and doesn’t know what to do.  Ugh, just hire somebody already! (Fashionologie)

So Emma Roberts went to visit Chris McMillan, the man behind “The Rachel,” and walked out looking EXACTLY like Jennifer Anniston. Is he a hair whisperer? (People Style Watch)

Elle’s Kyle Anderson has been chosen to replace Taylor Tomasi Hill at Marie Claire. This move reunites Kyle and Nina Garcia who worked together at Elle prior to Nina’s departure. Congrats boo. (The Cut)

HEADLINES: Kermie Gets a Makeover, The Fashion World Shakes Up Its Roster, and Kris Jenner is a Dirty Cheater.

Kris Jenner was on Leno the other night when she admitted to carrying on an affair during her first marriage to Robert Kardashian. Kris says, “We had wild sex everywhere, all the time.” Okay first of all TMI; second isn’t it just so convenient that she drops this juicy secret while trying to pimp a book? (The Superficial)

Tamara Mellon, co-founder and face of the brand, and Joshua Shulman, the company’s CEO, are leaving Jimmy Choo by the end of the month. Shulman assures skeptics that their decisions to leave were made independently, however this seems a little fishy to me. Change is a coming! (Fashionista)

It seems Manolo Blahnik and Franca Sozzani share the same point of view concerning the John Galliano scandal. Blahnik tells Vogue UK he thinks Galliano was treated horrifically by Dior and alleges the company destroyed a talent. Those are fighting words Manolo, fighting words! (VogueUK)

Speaking of Dior, the guessing game continues concerning who will replace Galliano as reports state negotiations with front-runner Marc Jacobs have slowed. Further Pheobe Philo, Marc’s successor-to-be at Louis Vuitton, has announced she has no plans to leave Celine. Ah, the plot thickens. (The Fash Pack)

Modi Operandi is stealing its employees from all corners of the fashion industry. Among the recruits are Taylor Tomasi Hill, former style and accessories director of Marie Claire, and Roopal Patel, a longtime executive in the fashion offices of Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman. Sneaky, sneaky. (The New York Times)

Paris’ Printemps is spending Christmas with Karl Lagerfeld, rather LOTS of Karl Lagerfelds. Karl was given the privilege of orchestrating the store’s Rêve d’Evasion (that is, travel dream) Christmas windows, which feature mini Lagerfeld marionettes photographing, filming, sketching, and posing all over Paris. Why am I not surprised? (Style.com)

Miss Piggy isn’t the only muppet to invade the fashion world; her beau Kermitt is right there with her. The famous frog got a formal wear make over courtesy of Brooks Brothers. The retailer gifted Kermie his first new tuxedo since 1979. (The Cut)

HEADLINES: Dina Lohan is Stupid, Iris Apfel is Mean, and Kanye West’s Fashion Career Isn’t Over?

Terry Richardson is one busy man with many, many doppelgangers. While shooting Beyonce recently for Harper’s Bazaar Terry took a time out to shoot some outtakes of Queen B fooling around with his signature glasses. This photo is now my desktop background. (Popsugar)

Whoa! Is Iris Apfel starting to lose it? They say dementia can manifest itself in aggression and I say that ‘they’ are right! The plagiarizing jewellery designer recently told the Telegraph that she wants to throw up when walking down 5th Avenue now because all the fat and ugly people don’t wear enough clothing. She goes on to say that stretch jeans over size 10 should be outlawed. Wow that’s gutless! Geeze, who peed in your cornflakes Iris? (The Cut)

Why am I not surprised that Dina Lohan has stooped to a new low? Because she’s a terrible person, that’s why! It seems mommy dearest is shopping around a personal memoir about Lilo’s partying and legal woes. Right, because that’s just what a good mother should do! Seriously, Mike and Dina never gave Lindsay a chance, did they?Throwing their daughter under the bus is their M.O. (Refinery 29)

So the Rolling Stone thinks that Kanye West’s fashion career isn’t dead … yet. It’s a point of view not shared by many, however, the article explores how he could have been more successful and ultimately concludes Kanye shouldn’t give up after only one attempt. No! Don’t encourage him! I don’t know if I can endure another disaster like that! (Rolling Stone)

Dior seems virtually unaffected by John Galliano’s racist tirade and departure from the brand. In fact, revenue is up 21%. Geeze people are weird, it’s like public indecency doesn’t even exist anymore. It’s just like when Kate Moss got caught doing coke and her career experienced a resurgence, although, I guess John Galliano’s career is still in question but I’m betting he will be just fine! (Fashionista)

So you know that depressing voice-over at the beginning of Rihanna’s We Found Love music video? That woman’s voice with the English accent, you know? Yeah it’s totally Agyness Deyn. (NY Fashion)

Good things come in pairs, right? Is that even an expression? Well, either way that doesn’t apply here. Because when handbags come in twos (specifically in two identical designs) it’s called plagiarism. I wonder how Marc Jacobs will respond. (The Purse Blog)

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

“It’s a sanctuary and [he] wants it to be [his] own personal Ali Baba cave of delight.” Right, okay … I can respect that, I think. (The Cut)

Awesome Anna Wintour was seen hanging out with lots of young little things during New York Fashion Week; but who will land a cover? Please say it’s Nicki. I would die if it’s Nicki. (Fashionista)

HEADLINES: Dina Lohan is Well on Her Way to Destroying Yet Another Child, and Missoni’s “Little Marina” Creeps Me Right Out.

Gwyneth Paltrow just released her new issue of GOOP and this time I am actually interested! The newsletter was mostly images that depicted all the behind-the-scene moments of her trip to Italy for the Venice Film Festival. Plus Matt Damon makes a cameo which is always a plus. (GOOP)

OMG nooo! The man of my dreams just cut off his beautiful golden locks in favour of a buzz cut! This cannot be happening. I mean his whole appeal was his faux-hawk! (Pop Sugar)

Yikes! We all know Lindsay Lohan is a piece of work but Dina sure as hell did a number on Ali. The consensus I am hearing is that this is a clear attempt to make an Anne Hathaway clone. Attempt failed – jus sayin’. (Lainey Gossip)

What the hell are people thinking? Why must everyone’s engagement ring be the size of a golf ball? And Cacee Cobb’s no less! Man she’s lucky Jessica Simpson hooked her up with Donald Faison so long ago; it’s about time he put a ring on it! However, I’m starting to believe these rings are not even real! Please explain to me how Donald, and even Kris Humphries for that matter, can afford such bling. (Too Fab)

John Galliano has been found guilty but will serve no jail time. Yep, that’s pretty much all you need to know. (The Daily Beast)

The stars flocked to support the launch of Missoni for Target last night. Celebrity guests, like Emma Roberts and Nina Garcia, were greeted by a 25 foot doll named “Little Marina” that was handled by puppeteers.  Yeah, it totally creeped me out as well. (Wall Street Journal)

Why do they call it “The GQ Man of the Year Awards” when they award quite a number of trophies to women? I really hate that. Anyway, this year Lara Stone was named ‘Best Woman of the Year’ while Tommy Hilfiger nabbed designer of the year. Are you as surprised as I am? (British Vogue)
