When B-Rock Obama
got sworn in for his second and final term as prezzie this week, the only things we cared about were
2) What Joe Biden
would think of Beyonce’s hair
3) What the ladies on Capitol Hill would be wearing. Obvi.
wore Thom Browne
(and her new bangs AKA fringe, unless you live in America/Stoneybrook, Connecticut), Malia
wore Kate Spad
e and J. Crew
(age appropz) and Bey wore Pucci
, surprisingly, was both invited to attend and dressed like a fashun glamazon in Rodarte
. Forget what was on her bod and her arm (John Mayer
) for a sec to look at the tiny version of Aretha Franklin
’s now-legendary inauguration 2009 hat she carried with her!!!
You know what’s coming.
In a display of pretty poor taste, Vogue
published a spread “celebrating” Hurricane Sandy’s first responders. Apparently the way to honour the people who helped the Residents of New York and New Jersey recover from a storm that left them without food, electricity, heating, wayer, wi-fi, transport, et al in infinitum, was to make them re-create their efforts while Karlie Kloss
wears Oscar de la Renta
near them and Annie Leibovitz
takes pictures of it. If I were these workers, I’d have told Anna and Grace to let ME wear the dresses and get MY fuckin’ hair done and be BFFs with Naomi Campbell
Oscar de la Renta
is also believed to be in cahoots with Anna Wintour
to give John Galliano
a helping hand to get back amongst the fashion fold. You know what would really help his cause? Not telling people with cameras that Hitler was an A+ guy! Just a thought.
Across the pond, British Vogue
has released some sketches of the costumes Miuccia Prada
designed for her BFF Baz Luhrman’
s The Great Gatsby
. The costumes are basically a “best of” collection of Miuccia’s best pieces for Prada
and Miu Miu
. No shade here; Miuch (as Baz calls her) can do no wrong by me. Ignoring this mess, obvi.
Last week, Jimmy Fallon
invited former wallflower of US Vogue Grace Coddington
onto his talk show to promote her new book. In short, he went batshit crazy trying to impress her and it was adorbs. Watch this clip to see the best gift anyone has ever been given.
, the photographer whose name we only know because he’s judged 17 seasons of America’s Next Top Model, says that being on the show caused Vogue to pull him from their roster of photographers. I guess encouraging this woman to behave like herself is a turn-off for them?
and Nicki Minaj
signed on to design clothing and accessories lines for Kmart. Separately, we hope. The world is not ready for pastel pink leather wrist cuffs co-designed by pop stars who “judge” two separate television singing competitions.
This week, while being interviewed for the Fashion Icons series at the 92Y in New York, 70-year old Betsey Johnson
cartwheeled and giggled and did the splits and tore her clothes off amongst conversations about her company going bankrupt last year. She told host Fern Mallis and the (probs) super confused crowd, “When I was growing up there were no initials. Now I’ve been told that I have the ADD and the XYZ and whatever.”
“The ADD.” Oh, Betsey. Let us take you back to the soda shoppe to play jacks.
Finally, super super supermodel Karlie Kloss
has announced plans to add “nerd burger” to her growing CV. The 20-year old plans to go to Harvard “at some point”. Not just any college, mind you; Harvard. You know, the one that denied Paris Gellar a place. She wants to study either business or medicine. You know, those similar fields with very vague and non-specific career endpoints. Wanna know who put these ideas in her head? Karlie’s quick to point the finger: “Tyra [Banks] did it. She went to Harvard business school. I can do it, too.”
Sure, follow this woman blindly into a 6-year degree.
