MEAN GIRLS: DONATELLA VERSACE EDITION
Seems to me that Donatella is picking favourites in the fashion world. The designer recently teamed up with Swedish retailer H&M on one of their most successful collaborations to date. Of course with every new collection comes a media frenzy. While promoting the collection, Donatella recently expressed her undying love for Scottish designer, Christopher Kane (a personal favourite of mine), and also called good friend, Karl Lagerfeld, “fearless,” and a “living genius.” However, Signora Versace had some not-so-nice things to say about fellow Italian designer, Roberto Cavalli, calling his designs pointless. She says, “I think that to do a collection—how do you say—as an homage to Versace, this is fine. But when you do a lot of collections as an homage to Versace—why? What’s the point?” She then looks at her horrified publicist saying, “Was I a beetch?” And bursts out in laughter.
BRIGHAM YOUNG UNIVERSITY BANS SKINNY JEANS
For those of you who might not be familiar with this academic institution, BYU is a Mormon university owned and run by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Its main campus is situated in Utah (obviously), but it also has grounds in Idaho and Hawaii. Brigham Young is chiefly known for its Honour Code. Implemented in 1940, they are a strict set of rules and standards by which students are required to live under. Some rules include: abstinence from alcohol, drugs, tobacco, coffee and tea, no sexual relationships outside of marriage, men are also prohibited from growing facial hair (goodbye Movember?), and the list goes on. More recently, a BYU-Idaho student was denied from writing a test because her pants were too tight. The very next day, the school reneged and released a statement via Facebook saying, “Wondering if skinny jeans are allowed on campus? They are. BYU-Idaho’s longstanding dress & grooming standards promote principles of modesty and restrict formfitting clothing, but skinny jeans are not singled out or prohibited.” I really have no words for this except, “Jesus, take the wheel.”
CHLOE SEVIGNY SAYS NICKY HILTON, WHO?
One of my favourite things about Chloe, apart from her impeccable style, is how outspoken she is. Here are some highlights from an interview she did with BULLETT magazine:
Chloe on the Hiltons:
I do remember someone saying…what’s Paris Hilton’s sister called? Isn’t it Nicky or something? Anyway, she apparently talked to someone about my first collection, and was like, ‘I don’t get it.’ I was like, Good! I’m glad she doesn’t get it. It’s not for her.
Chloe on Snooki:
If Snooki wants to wear my clothes, go for it. I think she’d look a lot better in them.
On finding JWoWW “sexy”:
I have to admit, I do find that JWoWW is sexy in a really weird way. It’s like that sexy, dirty kind of girl—not dirty, but like a hot mess.
PLAGIARISM? CAREY MULLIGAN COVER FEATURED ON VOGUE AND ELLE
The November issue of French Elle was recently released with breakout actress Carey Mulligan as their covergirl. However, there’s one slight problem, American Vogue’s October 2010 issue has the same exact cover. Let’s backtrack for a moment, shall we? Vogue magazine is published by Condé Nast, so if Glamour or W (also published by Condé Nast) wanted to use the same cover per se, there would be no issue. This is because it’s quite common for magazines that share the same publisher to also share covers. Elle on the other hand is published by Hachette Filipacchi. Okay, shit just got awkward.
- Is this legal?
- Last time I checked Vogue and Elle were sworn enemies.
