Rebel Wilson Covers 'New York' Magazine for 'Super Fun Night'


The fantastically hilarious Rebel Wilson is primped up for the latest issue of New York Magazine which plays the backdrop of her move to TV on the Conan O'Brien produced Super Fun Night.


On her character’s style: “In the pilot, I was deliberately wearing a very tight white dress with horrible crisscross black stripes that is way too short, and I’m holding a clutch purse that is so tiny that it accentuates my size. The women from wardrobe are lovely, but they don’t get that I want to dress as Kimmie, and Kimmie does not have the best taste. The girls in the show are at the bottom of the social pole, and it’s hard to communicate that to the network. It’s important they understand that comedy is not about looking good.”

On doing anything for a laugh: “I’m not vain at all. I’m an actress. And if something gets a laugh, I have no problem embarrassing myself. The character is the point. Not my ego.”

Queer History Of Fashion: From The Closet To The Catwalk


Fashionista.com takes a look at the new exhibit A Queer History of Fashion: From the Closet to the Catwalk at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York.


A portrait of Oscar Wilde greets visitors upon entry at the Museum at FIT’s latest exhibit, Queer History of Fashion: From the Closet to the Catwalk. As the 19th century’s ultimate dandy, Wilde embraced what he alliterated as the “dangerous and delightful distinction of being different.” Surrounding his portrait are quintessential examples of 19th century fashion: woolen black frock coats and long skirts. Upon closer inspection, subtle, subversive details emerge. Starched shirts and bowties on women’s clothing served as purposeful masculine elements to signify lesbian identity. A three-piece men’s suit from 1790s France, made in velvet and silk, stands out for its olive green hue—once considered effeminate in the era of early capitalism, when sober colors and stiff textiles defined white, Western masculinity.

Finding the ensembles was an arduous two-year process for historian Valerie Steele, chief curator, and Fred Dennis, senior curator of costume, who assembled the exhibit with the help of personal and museum collections. Says Steele, “I think people will be very surprised that the show goes back to the 18th century. We could’ve done a very different show, which would have focused on the last 50 years in fashion, and lots of gay designers. But I wanted to put it in context. This isn’t just something that’s happened from the ’70s until now. This is something that’s been a part of fashion history. In a way, it’s been hidden. This show is reclaiming the gay and lesbian past and putting it back into fashion explicitly. It’s not that just a few designers happen to be gay. But gays and lesbians have contributed immensely to fashion for a very long time.”

Antonio Lopez: Off-Duty Disco


Karl Lagerfeld, Grace Jones and Andy Warhol Star in the Fashion Illustrator’s Personal Photo Collection

Antonio Lopez’s candid images of his camped-up entourage basking in St. Tropez and Studio 54-era New York capture the headiness of the 1970s. Born in Puerto Rico and raised in the Bronx, the fashion illustrator is better known for his swirling, Pop Art-infused sketches and psychedelic personality portraits. These rarely seen Instamatic photographs featuring Karl Lagerfeld, Andy Warhol and Anna Piaggi were shot during Lopez’s downtime from assignments for Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar and The New York Times, and coincide with an exhibition of Lopez's work from online gallery East of Mayfair, on show at the Roland Mouret concept store in London. “The photographs actually look like his drawings,” says curator Janina Joffe. “They have the same movements and composition.” While working in Paris with art director Juan Ramos, Lopez notably discovered Jerry Hall and Tina Chow. “I think what people liked about Antonio is his character, his lifestyle and vivacity,” says Joffe of the industry iconoclast, who would have turned 70 this year. “It was a scene but it wasn’t sceney the way it is now. They wanted to be out there, outrageous and very fun—and that’s what you can tell with this project.”

Antonio Lopez runs at East of Mayfair and Roland Mouret, London, from September 14 to October 20 2013. -via nowness.com

Sky Ferreira Gets Busted (Everything Is Embarrassing)


Poor Sky Ferreira, on the heels of her album finally getting released we woke up to see that the peroxide blonde beauty was arrested on drug charges with her boyfriend Zachary Cole Smith in New York.

“criminal possession of a controlled substance and resisting arrest” for Ferreira and “two counts of criminal possession of a controlled substance, one count of possession of stolen property and one count of aggravated unlicensed driving” and also “violations of unregistered motor vehicle, driving without insurance, unlicensed driver, and having an inadequate exhaust system” for Smith. Their truck was pulled over after Smith, who was driving, made several infractions, and police found out that he had an outstanding vehicle and traffic warrant, and the tags on his truck were stolen. Ferreira had ecstasy on her.

We last ran into Sky at West Hollywood's club Micky's alternative night, WhoreHaus where she was very drunk, hazy and frail along side her boyfriend. We assumed she was just thin for her then upcoming runway shows.

Ferreira last week for London Fashion Week Marc Jacobs Runway.


Whatever the case is we hope all the best for Sky as she has been the background melody for our midnight adventures and we sure hope our modern day Debbie Harry (who was also happened to be a heroin user in her heyday which ultimately lead to Blondie's demise) gets back on track cause not everything should be embarassing.

People are always changing and evolving, and with Rogue, my new fragrance, I wanted to switch it up to reflect who I am today. It’s a personal fragrance that’s more self-aware. It’s Rogue, it’s me. This scent embodies demure feminine qualities yet carries into an audacious new moment. I made it for all women, for every mood, because we all want to project our true selves.

Lady Gaga Covers Elle


Lady Gaga is a vision of beauty in the upcoming October 2013 issue of Elle magazine. In a shoot by Ruth Hogben, Gaga the 27 year old pop stars looks back on the begining of her career and struggles.

On ARTPOP: “I went to look back to myself being 19, with all my Warhol books and all my Yoko Ono and John Lennon CDs, my Rolling Stones CDs and my Bowie…, and I said, what would she want me to do right now? Well she’d want you to call Jeff Koons and Robert Wilson and Marina Abramović and Inez and Vinoodh…And that’s what I did!”

On criticism: “Everyone is so cynical—that I can’t purely love my fans, or share an honest story about my past, without someone asking me if I really, truly struggled. Do you know how much dirt I ate? Do you know the men I had to crawl through, the people that disrespected my body, my mind, my heart?”

On handling pressure: “What are you talking about, pressure? I’m great under pressure. I’m a warrior. I’m Rocky, round 12.”
