Perez Hilton For Hot Topic Leaves Us Kinda Cold

  • Fashion iconoclast and actress Chloe Sevigny is teaming up with the designers at Opening Ceremony again, this time to do a men's line. The cool thing, and this shit has "cool" written all over it, is that the men's clothing will be for women too. "Not only did I want to do something for the guys in my life, but a lot of my girlfriends prefer to wear men's stuff," Chloe says. Why hasn't someone thought of doing this before? [fashionologie]
  • More Sex and the City fashion news! It never ends! The Notorious P.A.T. (that's Patricia Field) has been tapped to create a line for England's own Marks & Spencer (aka "Marks and Sparks" to London city-dwellers) this coming fall. [Telegraph]
  • I guess old coke habits do die hard, because it seems as though Kate Moss is back Burberry's good books. Images from the spring campaign have leaked showing Moss donning a bikini and a veil. If the company dropped poor Agyness due to overexposure, what's the rationale for using Kate again? [Sassybella]
  • Next up for the Target Go International line is none other than Jonathan Saunders. You might remember Mr. Saunders from such memorable pieces as "that pretty dress someone once wore" or "I have no fucking idea."

  • House of Dior is set to launch a new line of luxury cell phones, which is good news for rich housewives in China, rich housewives in Russia, Paris Hilton, and Paris Hilton's dog. That thing has a phone too, right? [WSJ]
  • Paul and Stella McCartney team up for a night of fashion, music, and really fucking rich people at Paul's old Alma Mater in Liverpool…Marc Jacobs gripes about the money side of fashion to students at Central Saint Martins, and dishes some queeny gossip about Tom Ford and how he was "different" back in the day, plus, another fancy store opens in The Hamptons, which is weird. That neighborhood used to be so much cooler when it was filled with junkies. JK! Read about fashion scoops here: [WWD]
  • Queen Elizabeth seemed to be riding Camilla's fashion dick this past weekend: the two attended a wedding looking like a much fancier version of the Bobbsey Twins. And did you know the palace has its own in-house fashion designers? Siiiick. [Telegraph]
  • A weepy model who got the boot from Australia's Next Top Model talks about how she was bullied on the show and she doesn't want her parents to watch it. Alamela Rowan says she is relieved about getting kicked off and who can blame her? I guess reality shows just aren't what they used to be. Or, they have always been exactly the same. [News.com.au]
  • Writer Hadley Freeman talks about celeb clothing lines and the difference between Kate Moss and Lily Allen, who was never a fashion icon to begin with. [Guardian]

  • Lower East Side retailers/designers Dana Foley and Anna Corinna say it sucks to get ripped off all the time by bigger brands like Forever 21. "Shoppers would still prefer to pay $12 for a copied handbag than $400 to $800 for the original." No shit, Sherlock. [NYTimes]
  • A gallery in the UK is set to celebrate Vivienne Westwood's life's work with an exhibition beginning next week. [TheStar]
