  • "'Who are these dreadful women?' Manolo Blahnik screams in horror as he brandishes the latest edition of a smart society magazine. An assistant points out kindly that they are four of Hollywood's top female stars. Looking pained, Blahnik turns away muttering 'Dreadful, dreadful,' before adding, with a roll of his eyes heavenwards: 'I'm totally confused. I don't even know what taste is any more. Frankly, I can't bear to buy magazines. I just get so upset.'" Yeah, we hated that Vanity Fair cover too. It's so gross and pink and Easter Sunday and like how does Anne Hathaway qualify as "fresh"? And also: who is responsible for those fug satin slingbacks? Let's check the credits...ah yes! Shoes from Manolo Blahnik, London, or call 011-44-207-352-8622.

  • Hey, and it turns out Blahnik isn't the only guy who takes this fashion stuff pretty seriously! Giorgio Armani dis-invited New York Times fashion critic Cathy Horyn a day before the show! Cathy seems to take this pretty seriously herself: "It's no wonder that cynicism, and not mere dramas, is born." [NY Times]
  • Danny Masterson to open an East Hollywood boutique. Yes, that Danny Masterson! (Also: has he had work done?) He says it will be a "mini Fred Segal." (Also: is Fred Segal wildly overrated?) [NY Mag]
  • Holy shit Vivienne Westwood what the fuck. [Daily Mail]
  • Is Naomi Campbell secretly engaged to a Brazilian businessman? Hey, if News of the World says so...[News Of The World]
  • Comme des Garcons is opening a secret "guerrilla" store in LA. Such a subversive marketing move, guys! Is actually great design just not enough to cut it in this market anymore? You have to have, like, a gimmick? Don't answer that! [UPI]
  • Oh, look what highly underrated Brazilian supermodel just landed a sorely-deserved endorsement contract! Life = complete. [E! Online]
