WTH were we thinking?!
Now you know what to get for the glam gal who has everything….
Starting Dec. 12, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen’s fashion line The Row will release 12 glossy Damien Hirst-designed handbags made of black patent Nile crocodile skin—adorned with prescription pills, for only $55,000.
That’s right $55,000! Shall we call it pharma couture for the 1%
The limited edition crazy expensive purse collection seems to celebrate drug paraphenelia. My only thoughts is that they were either under the influence and thought gee why not, while raiding their medicine cabinets? Or they must think who wouldn’t buy our stuff? Well, they are absolutely right! Case in point their previous line featuring $39,000 designs–all of which were completely sold out. Kudos to the keen business women, they sure do know how to market themselves.
And because it is the season of giving after all, a portion of the proceeds will go to UNICEF, however it has not been disclosed how much will be donated.
If you are still craving this pill purse…because what’s more trendy than Ritalin, Celebrex, and Zoloft?
Just get crafty. All you need is a hot glue gun and medicine cabinet. No talent required. Now you too can be a fashion designer à la Olsen.
From Hollywood to Royalty, if there’s one name that represents exquisite elegance, it’s Valentino.
The legendary designer has created impeccable, classic gowns for the world’s most glamorous women, from Elizabeth Taylor and Sophia Loren to Sarah Jessica Parker and Gwyneth Paltrow.
Now a new London exhibition is bringing together more than 130 of his handcrafted designs, showcasing the intricate detailing that has gone into couture dresses.
Valentino: Master of Couture shows some of the world’s most recognizable gowns. The exhibition at Somerset House in London focuses on haute couture, luxurious hand-embroidered, sewn and even painted gowns.
Each gown literally took hundreds of hours of painstaking work to make. Highlights include an elaborate, pearl-encrusted wedding dress for Princess Marie-Chantal of Greece, which took 25 seamstresses and four months to complete.
Visitors will also see original sketches by Valentino, as well as videos showing the techniques that his seamstresses used in creating the garments.
The couture creations truly are a work of art for the very few women in the world that could afford to wear them. For the rest of us who have only drooled over magazines and dreamed of wearing Valentino, well here is your chance to catch a glimpse of a true fashion legend’s work.
The exhibition opens Thursday and runs through March
After moving to Miami this year I have major coat envy this year. Coveting this years coat collection I find myself spending hours on pinterest searching for winter reminders. Longing for hot cocoa, shear-ling slippers and colorful coats from tattered tweeds, faux fur to winter white or in every pattern, shape or hemline.
Jockstraps, Man-Bras, and Crotch-Grabbing Pants…Oh No!
Loco Yoko Ono premiered her new fashion collection, “Fashions for Men: 1969-2012” available at Open Ceromony, for a limited time only. Ravewear just got a little more crotch centric. This men’s line is inspired none other than by John Lennon. Huh?
The pieces were inspired by a gift, including a series of drawings and sketches that Ono gave to John Lennon, on their wedding anniversary in 1969.
“I felt it was a pity if we could not make clothes emphasizing his very sexy bod. So, I made this whole series with love for his hot bod, and gave it to him as a wedding present.” Ya, I guess I can totally picture John in a light up jockstrap for only $200..?
“You can IMAGINE how he went wild and fell in love with me even more!” she added. “My sophisticated, tasteful, and sensible friends across the world all scream – ‘We love it!'” The LED Nipple Bra sounds practical for night jog!
What’s with the butt motif? Or mesh derrieres cutouts? Which I will not post, for everyone’s sake.
Or the Bell Board – Is it a tank or necklace, someone???
In case the mesh long sleeved tee was a little too nippy there is an option that offers a little more coverage in strategically placed parts, for the modest man in your life.
Now the real question is….
Gents would YOU wear this?
Love it or Leave it?
Wendy Williams talk show host skipped out on a massive shoe bill of $419,000! The talk show diva allegedly failed to foot the bill for 12,140 pairs of shoes for her new shoe line Adorn.
Needless to say the factory owner who makes the shoes in China, is not to pleased with Williams. Actually he was more than a little displeased, he reportedly kidnapped one of the managers of Max Harvest International Holdings, a separate manufacturing company working with the star on her shoe line. The manager was held hostage for 2 week and released unharmed when he realized that this was not helping the situation. Gee, ya think?
Overreact Much? LOL
Get your Chanukah on!
Whether you light your menorah by candle, electricity or traditional oil, here’s an assortment of menorahs that might spark your interest. Have your pick from DIY to designer menorahs.
Before lighting the menorah, we thank G‑d for giving us this special mitzvah, and for the incredible Chanukah miracles: Source Chabad.org
