Mary-Kate in Harper's Bazaar

Explain the unexplainable: How is it possible that Mary-Kate Olsen looks so hot in candids and red carpet shots but like an ugly neckless monkey in Peter Lindberg editorials in Harper's Bazaar? Why is that, Peter, why?!

No more blam for Jessica Stam

Here's a tried and true Chinese method: gallons and gallons of tea. Chamomile.... the only substance a lady should be abusing in case of dark undereye circles... Nothing else works--certainly not the horrid twenty dollar marching powder they sell to Jessica Stam on street corners...

Something you'd love to wear:
Something you'll never wear:
and a few knit numbers to make it all timeless, sensible and cohesive:
We're Miuccia's big fans...

Carine Roitfeld wears American Apparel?

Now that is a serious nod of approval: high-profile Parisian fashion editrix wearing Dov Charney. Unbelievable. Next thing you know Ms Roitfeld will be at Dov's mansion in Beverly Hills posing for his website in lame leggins and a tan. (We can easily envision this one)


The world is coming to an end: Carine in AA and Dior shoes at Armani show in Milan


Studded shoes

We know everyone thinks it's our job to identify designer items worn by celebrities and all. But we don't have the time to go through style.com (it's one of those Burberry-Versace-Giles type collections). You get the general idea though: studded shoes=the hotness!

Giselle by Testino for Paris Vogue Oct '07

Sexy hot hot--the way only Testino+Bundchen can be. Naturally, we want the entire wardrobe ...and those legs.





Pat Field is at it again

Studded belt, gladiator platforms, Eiffel tower purse and that crazy matchy coat+dress combination! What's going on?!

What are those shoes? Balenciaga? We want them!

The dress is bananas and we love it

Ruffles Spring 2008

London's bringing desheveled chic back--ruffles are everywhere. (And was it ripped jeans that we just saw on the catwalk?)

V Magazine #49

One thing they don't tell you about fashion is how tedious fashion people can be. You know that sour, disaffected look Anna Wintour has? Well, her little helpers can be even worse: too-trivial subject matters and waaay too much good taste. Stepford nightmare. That's why we always liked Stephen Gan, the editor-in-chief of V and V Man--Gan's got a wild side and he's letting it show. Just look at those Brad covers!

Fanta Spring 2008

You know what, if Ms. Jacobs really deserts New York Fashion Week for London one collection we'll be looking forward to instead is 3.1 Phillip Lim. Seriously, as irreplacable as Marc may be we love Lim even more: fantastic clothes--minus the diva attitude. (And Phillip's new shop on Mercer Street is genius too) So there...

Meet Jacques Polge, The Perfume God


We made sure to take a extra-long shower and spritz ourselves with Chanel before we met this man as we were standing literally two feet away from him in his highly clandestine perfume labarotory in Paris. Jacques Polge's nose is worth gazillions in annual revenue to the Chanel Empire and we're not exaggerating.... The creator of Chanel perfumes since 1978 he is unquestionably one of the most powerful men in fragrance industry (nevermind that we always had the hots for older French gentlemen)

Our head was exploding from how majorly important he is but we preteneded to be completely at ease and mannerly--like Lady Amanda Harlech. Monsieur Polge's assistants (Christopher Sheldrake) were dipping tester strips into bottles with ingredients--jasmine, patchouli, vanilla, cut hay.....Patchouli=rich and earthy, jasmine=sweet and powdery... it all made us want to wear tweed jackets from Chanel Cruise collection and lunch at the Ritz....(and then we actually did have lunch the Ritz... don't hate!)

Now we have a feeling we'll never want to smell like anything but Chanel ever again.
