Iris van Herpen Made Prickly, Watery Cocoons for Paris Fashion Week

Dutch designer Iris van Herpen's ideas are perpetually voluminous, unhindered by limitations of fabric: if she can't find the material she wants in the known universe, she just invents it. That's what happened (again) with her stunning Fall 2015 show in Paris this week, in which she transformed her models into raw… » 3/11/15 5:50pm 3/11/15 5:50pm

Jessica Chastain and Salma Hayek are Bosom Buddies

There are two kinds of friends you drag into a poorly-lit fitting room when trying on clothes: the kind who lie right to your face and tell you that everything looks good no matter what, and the kind who encourage you to buy a top that exposes one of your breasts. » 3/09/15 9:45pm 3/09/15 9:45pm

Stop, Givenchy. Just Stop.

This is painful because Givenchy is one of my faves, but this is ridiculous: for Fall 2015, Riccardo Tisci sent a runway of models in baby hairs and nose rings, with stones glued to their faces a la piercings. » 3/09/15 7:00pm 3/09/15 7:00pm

Fuck a Tent; Wear a Sleeping Bag of Death

In the second installment of our Fall/Winter 2015 Fashion Month series entitled "Fuck a ____; Wear a _____," we bid a glad adieu to the tents we were wearing two weeks ago and say major fucking bonjour to these fashionable sleeping bags proffered this week by the god Rei Kawakubo for Comme des Garçons. » 3/09/15 6:00pm 3/09/15 6:00pm

Vogue Editor Deletes Tasteless Instagram Post

Paris Fashion Week: Comme des Garçons' Bloody Coven

If Comme des Garçons' Rei Kawakubo has her way, next spring we will all be praying at the altar of our own ovaries, in her brilliant crimson odes to blood and guts and "roses, but not a pretty rose." It is brilliant, it is sculptural, it is clothing designed to never let the wearer forget that we're literally all the… » 9/29/14 6:45pm 9/29/14 6:45pm

Kim Kardashian and North West Attend Givenchy In Matching Sheer Outfits

Guys I have a lot of mixed feelings about what's going on here. On the one hand, I'm terrified that Baby North West is being indoctrinated into the shitshow that is fashion at such an early age. On the other hand, THAT SHEER SHIRT IS SO SMALL IT'S SO CUTE. » 9/28/14 5:31pm 9/28/14 5:31pm

Paris Fashion Week: Manish Arora's Wacky, Acid House Space Queens

At Manish Arora, the mood was festive; rows 1-3 were offered little Dixie cups of pomegranate juice, with attendees' names calligraphed on them in neon puffy pen. The ushers, who were robots, wore hot-pink dishwashing gloves to hand out the drinks, whispering softly, "It's dosed. It's dosed. It's dosed." Their voices… » 9/25/14 3:40pm 9/25/14 3:40pm

Armani Privé, for the Stoned Heiress Partying in Morocco in You

You're filthy rich, you're smoking lots of hash and you're throwing epic parties in a palace outside the medina. What do you wear? All of this. Purple haze all in your brain. » 1/22/14 5:15pm 1/22/14 5:15pm

Saint Laurent: For the Expensive Trash Enthusiast in You

Hedi Slimane presented the Saint Laurent spring 2014 line in Paris, and it is exceedingly tacky. Not subversive tacky, not thoughtful tacky — it looks like if someone took a teenaged girl with a vague interest in alternative music to a Forever 21 and said, "Quick! You have 15 minutes to find an outfit for my… » 10/01/13 12:40pm 10/01/13 12:40pm

Kim and Kanye Showered With Free Designer Baby Clothes in Paris

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have been enjoying Paris Fashion Week, and also accumulating a bunch of stuff to declare at customs.

What the Front Row Is Wearing at Paris Fashion Week

Paris Fashion Week is the grand finale of the Spring 2014 collections, but what the front row attendees are wearing is often a more accurate trend forecast than what's going down the runway. For example, Anna Dello Russo wore mouse ears, so you'll probably look like an asshole if you trot out your cat ears in public… » 9/30/13 7:40pm 9/30/13 7:40pm

Givenchy, for the High Heel-Hating Weirdo World Traveler in You

The Givenchy spring 2014 collection, presented during Paris Fashion week yesterday, is a little all over the map. In fact, Lauren Cochrane at the Guardian calls it "streetwear for global elegance." » 9/30/13 2:50pm 9/30/13 2:50pm
