Itsnotyouitsme Report 97: Things to Know

Photobucket "Louboutin Making Shoes for Paris Cabaret: Is this what Christian Louboutin was referring to when he said his shoes bring on an “orgasmic situation?” The French footwear designer is set to release a collaboration with Parisian cabaret Crazy Horse, which is well-known for its topless dancers. Wonder if he’ll be making matching nipple tassels…" - - via

Photobucket "Annabel Tollman Personifies Underwear in Calvin Klein Webisodes: Calvin Klein Underwear has teamed up with the stylist on a series of webisodes for its new “Naked Glamour” campaign. The three roughly-minute and a half long spots feature Tollman dressing models for a shoot, describing each bra style as the foundation of a character’s look: Confident, Sexy, and Strong. Tollman says she “wanted to encapsulate that moment of self-creation that we all go through [when getting dressed]” – seems like a lot of pressure for a bra!" - - via

Photobucket "Noel Gallagher’s Extremely Young Daughter is Modeling: The ex-Oasis star’s daughter Anais is one of the newest faces to be signed under Select Model Management (which also represents Aggy Deyn and Natasha Poly). The celeb-kin-as-models trend is nothing new, but here’s the kicker – Anais is only 11 years old. There’s no denying this pre, pre-teen is gorgeous, but here’s hoping no Thylane-esque controversy comes from this little girl’s new career." - - via

Photobucket "Baby Bling for Blue Ivy: Baby Blue doesn’t even know her own name yet, but the rest of the world is sure saying a lot about her. The latest reports say that new parents Beysus and Jay have already spent upwards of $1.5M on Lil’ B, including the purchase of a $15,000 highchair covered in Swarovski crystals. I’m just praying those crystals are glued on there well, since small parts are choking hazards for babies." - - via

Photobucket "Vintage Louis Vuitton Nail Polish, Yours for Only $595! Racked found some seriously ancient Louis Vuitton nail polish selling (or maybe not…) online for $595.

Photobucket "UK Design of the Year Nominees Announced: Alexander McQueen is double-nominated for Sarah Burton’s Royal Wedding dress and the ‘Savage Beauty’ retrospective exhibit at the Met Museum. Other nods for the 5th Annual Brit-based awards go to Phoebe Philo of Céline, Mary Katrantzou, and Vivienne Westwood. Winners will be announced April 24 in London." - - via

Photobucket "Dolce and Gabbana Deny Discrimination Charges: After being accused of discriminatory practices barring Hong Kong residents from snapping photos outside their Tsim Sha Tsui store, Dolce and Gabbana has released a statement assuring the population that they are indeed not prejudiced. “Controversial statements reported in the Hong Kong press have not been made by Dolce & Gabbana nor its staff, and we strongly reject any racist or derogatory comments…we wish to underline that our company has not taken part in any action aimed at offending the Hong Kong public.”" - - via

Photobucket "Kate Moss for Rimmel London Comes to America: The supermodel chose five random colors designed a five piece collection of lipsticks for Rimmel London, set to drop stateside this week." - - via

Photobucket "Is A Bald Barbie on The Way?: After creating a bald Barbie doll last year for a four-year-old cancer patient, Mattel is being petitioned to mass produce the doll. In recent years, the toy company has been taking steps to diversify its Barbie selection, and this particular doll would be a welcome addition, especially for those young girls receiving chemotherapy who might want to play with a Barbie that looks like her." - - via

Photobucket "Lara Stone Gets Blown Away: The latest model-turned-actress? Lara S. gets blown away by some crazy weather in this new short for Mercedes-Benz – but we can’t really say we were blown away by her acting skills, which seem to consist mainly of a furrowed brow, confused/alarmed expression, and a slightly unhinged jaw. Nice legs though!" - - via

Photobucket "Man Gets an Andrej Pejic Tattoo, the Permanent Kind: Someone will be walking around for the rest of his life with this tattoo of androgynous angel Andrej Pejic. The new definition of ‘timeless fashion’?" - - via

The show, which aims to demonstrate how to take outfits from play-time to date-time, takes place Feb 16 and will stream live online." - - via

Photobucket "Bootylicious Fly Named After Beyonce: Researchers have dubbed a previously unnamed species of horse fly species the ‘Scaptia (Plinthina) beyonceae fly,’ in honor of Blue Ivy’s mother (aka Beyonce). The rare yet pesty fly, which is native to Australia, has a “spectacular” golden “booty,” making it the “all-time diva of flies.” Well we always have thought B was pretty fly…" - - via

Photobucket "SpongeKarl SquarePants: Check out Karl Lagerfeld, Terry Richardson, Coco Chanel, and Marc Jacobs (who already has a SpongeBob tattoo) as the underwater, pineapple-dwelling kitchen utensil himself. Just go with it." - - via

Photobucket "What’s Better Than Fashion and Hot Guys? That’s Right, Nothing: Brioni will reportedly use ‘real men’ (as opposed to models, who are apparently fake men) for its upcoming Milan menswear presentation, and Prada will use international movie stars (including Adrien Brody) for its menswear show.
