Gareth Pugh

'It’s one thing to watch a fashion documentary that peeks inside a designer’s studio and a very different thing to stand over a designer while he or she builds something from scratch.

Gareth Pugh's moving into the studio space within ShowStudio’s Bruton Street shop in London. He’ll be there through the weekend crafting a totally exclusive, one of a kind look, “a unique interpretation of his SS10 collection.”

Of course, since this is ShowStudio, the whole thing will be broadcast live at once he gets started and afterward, Nick Knight will shoot the look in the shop before it’s sold.

If you were waiting for the perfect excuse to invest in some Pugh, this is it. Otherwise, have fun dreaming.' -Fashionistas

I on the otherhand, have no reason to dream, for I own my very own Mister Gareth Pugh top!


During the 60s, Great Britain gave the world sensational music acts such as The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, and The Who, just to mention a couple of them. Their conquest in the US during those years is refered as "The British Invasion".

The Who one of the most iconic groups from this period, just like their musical peers, became one of the representatives of men's fashion in the 60s. We can see its members donning Mod hairstyles paired with "avant garde" clothes for those years. Peter Townsend's "Union Jack" jacket gets all of the attention on this photo.

Book :: Helmut Newton: Sumo

'Karl Lagerfeld and Baptiste Giabiconi recently collaborated on a scandalous tribute to the iconic Helmut Newton woman in Purple Fashion magazine. So who is this woman exactly?'

'The epic photography book Helmut Newton: Sumo, which was released by Taschen this past September, is a great way to get to know this woman. Coming with a special bookholder/stand, SUMO is a 480 pages masterpiece that showcases the unique (and sometimes controversial) style of this iconic photographer.'

Meet Sidney The Pet Otter!

This video of Sidney the "domesticated" baby otter playing around like a young can't help but get a warm feeling when watching this clip, ehh

"You can't get lost. There is no fun in that."

Eric Steward, the Australian man who went out to pick up the morning paper at the local store, but ended up taking a wrong turn which led him 400 miles the wrong way.

81-year-old Eric was visiting friends with his wife when he took off at 7:30 Monday morning to get the newspaper. Eric took a wrong turn onto the highway and drove nearly 400 miles for a total of 9 hours before he decided that he should probably ask for some help. Eric finally asked a police officer for some directions back home. By this time, Eric's wife had already called the police and reported him missing! The police officer simply showed Eric the right way and he was reunited with his wife 9 hours later.

Eric told the Australian media, "I just went out on the road to have a drive, a nice peaceful quiet drive. I didn't know where I was going but I knew it was somewhere, and with a bit of luck I would eventually find my wife again. When you get to 80 and beyond it doesn't matter much. He's out there waiting for us and you just got to wait your turn." And when a reporter said he should get a GPS, Eric snapped back, "Why would you want one of those? You can't get lost. There is no fun in that."

So She Says...

“Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels.” —Kate Moss tells WWD.

Zac Attack!

Zac Posen’s new line is launching at Saks this spring. And get this, the price point starts at $78. The 60 pieces include tons of separates and are all about sportswear.

Zac told WWD, ““To me, it’s more appropriate to build a whole brand and collection around this price point. Chic sportswear should be at this price point. Designer dresses and cocktail pieces should be at a more expensive price point.”

The inspiration is much more LES than UES as Zac had pics of Nike Dunks and Travis Bickle on his inspiration board. We love the idea of this expansion and not only because it’s going to offer us a little bit of Zac to wear in our daily lives, seeing as we’re not the frequent fancy dress wearers. But also because he sounds so excited and serious about the project.

“I treat a T-shirt as a T-shirt should be treated. With a lot of love.” Well said, sir.

Parkour by Alexander James

Reese Witherspoon Talks Trash

The 33-year-old actress appeared last Friday as a guest on The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien. “I like to throw things away. I’m obsessed with garbage,” she said. “After a holiday or a birthday, I have tons and tons of garbage and it always overflows and I always sort of peek out late at night and look at the neighbors’ garbage can and it’s, like, empty. They’re like these amazing people that have no trash.

“So, if I have a particularly bad day, where I have a lot of extra garbage, I go and take my garbage and put it in theirs,” Reese said. “I also put on rubber boots if there’s too much garbage and I’ll stand on the garbage and smash the garbage down… I’m, like, a garbage compactor.”

Uhhm, Err....COMO??!!?

Miss Daphne Guinness

Last night, at a party in honor of Francois Nars’ new book and the 15th Anniversary of Nars, Fashionista's finally spoke to Daphne Guinness. And here is what they had to say...

'I’d been standing there staring at her Alexander McQueen shoes and her awe-inspiring beehive and barely looked away long enough to realize that Marc’s kilt is actually just a pair of shorts with a panel in front, a skort, if you will, when I just reached out and said, “Excuse me,” I had to know how much her shoes weighed.

“They’re quite light actually,” she answered.


In a new interview with German magazine Bravo (via Post Chronicle), Rihanna said that your peen must be a certain height in order to ride her ride.

RiRi explained, "He has to be good in bed and the size matters. You know what I mean? The inner beauty counts as well, but without a toy it doesn't make it fun. Right now I don't want to have a serious relationship, I want to have fun. I love flirting at the moment. I'm single and I'm enjoying my freedom. But I don´t give my phone number out that often. But if I'm dating, I check the boy from the top to the bottom."

And there you have it folks!

Auctioning Audrey

'The opportunity to own vintage Givenchy, Audrey Hepburn's vintage Givenchy, comes along once, maybe twice in a lifetime, including now. If you’ve got a miniature waist and a not-miniature wallet - to stock your closet with almost priceless wares.

On December 8th, thirty-six pieces of Audrey's clothes, accessories and letters are going up for auction in London, including, according to The Independent two custom Givenchy dresses from Paris When it Sizzles and How to Steal a Million.

The dresses are expected to sell for at least £15,000 each (that’s about $25,150), pennies compared to her Breakfast at Tiffany’s dress which sold for $783,541.12 three years ago. This time around, all of the net-profits from the auction will be donated to All Children in School, a foundation supported by the Audrey Hepburn Children’s Fund that aims to educate 120 million children worldwide. So it’s a win-win: get Givenchy, give to charity.' -Fashionista

What could be better?

Gaga Speechless?!

HARDLY, but Lady Gaga was playing a pink piano at the MOCA New 30th Anniversary Gala at L.A.’s Museum of Contemporary Art on Saturday (November 14).

The 23-year-old “Bad Romance” singer performed her new song “Speechless” alongside Italian artist Francesco Vezzoli while members of Russia’s Bolshoi ballet troupe danced.

“For me, art is a lie, and the artists are there to create lies we kill when we make it true,” Lady Gaga told the Wall Street Journal. “Francesco and I were like warriors on stage, trying to make a true moment.”

“Art is life, life is art,” Gaga shared. “The question is, what came first?”

Book - Pop: The Genius of Andy Warhol

Pop: The Genius of Andy Warhol is a new book by Tony Scherman and David Dalton that reexamines and reassesses the life & legend of the iconic Andy Warhol.

'The publisher HarperCollins describes the book as a, “detailed, insightful chronicle of his rise, as well as a critical examination of Warhol's most important works.” While Richard Dorment (New York Review of Books) calls it a, “fascinating study of Warhol's rise from commercial artist to the most celebrated painter and filmmaker in 1960s America.” The book sounds like a must read for any true Warhol fan.' -Homotog
