Retraction: Agyness Deyn Is Offically Actually Awesome

  • Breaking news: a Telegraph profile today inspired me to finally watch the Agyness Deyn music video. It is generic and derivative and cynically targeted at the aging Britpop nostalgists who write blogs and I fucking love it. Oh man, and I don't even hate myself for this. Embedded after the jump.

ELLE Continues To Toy With Nina Garcia's Affections

  • The latest on the Nina Garcia saga: If she takes the editor-at-large gig she'll only be there til mid-October, when ELLE's contract with Project Runway ends and then she'll be let go for reals.

'InStyle' Accessorian And Champion Bluffer Alice Kim So Fed Up With New…

The news has hit that "accessories maven" and poker-champ Alice Kim — with whom one of us has worked, and enjoyed doing so — has left InStyle for Nebraska (a state). But no one seems to want to point to her as the anonymous editor of "ViewFromTheFourthRow", even though there is lots of that real discreet… » 5/23/07 5:27pm 5/23/07 5:27pm

Blogosphere's Collective Brain Explodes Over Sarah Jessica Parker's…

Sometime last month someone announced the news that Sarah Jessica Parker is "designing", by which we mean, "profiting from the sale of," a line of clothes for poor people.
