Weekly Commentary on Fashion News from Around the World
What happens when you’re a rich kid with rich, bored friends? Yep, you take to lighting money on fire. Or in the case of Francesca Eastwood and Tyler Shields, you destroy a $100,000 Birkin bag. In the name of art. Of course. (See full range of pics here.)
What else you do when you have a lot of money? You turn to floors of a historic hotel into your home. See what Dee and Tommy Hilfiger did to their new home at the Plaza. Or, if Singapore is more your style, check out the apartment Hermès decorated. Although not for rent – and only strictly for private engagements - I’d still hide somewhere to spend one (illegal) night there.
… and if you’re not completely bowled over just yet with lavishness, try this story on for size: a wealthy Dallas woman is recovering from a car wreck, her husband starts carrying on an affair with her Neiman’s personal shopper, and he spends $1.5M on his wife so his mistress can claim the commission. His wife finds out, tries to return the goods and Neiman’s won’t accept it. Now she’s suing. I feel like I just heard a future episode of GCB.
As if Facebook wasn’t “loud” enough to blast relationship statuses to the world, now you can wear them. They are called Buumps and they come bundled together – just in case you know, you change statuses as much as you change underwear.
Who says your pet’s paws can’t have a matching pedicure to that of their owner’s? Check out some of this crazy nail art. If it were more sanitary, I could see a whole new spa concept developing.
Don’t have a pet? Try matching outfits with your human companion. Check out this couple, who has been married for 64 years, and has more than 146 custom-made matching outfits.
And speaking of what may be crazy to some – wearing sunglasses in doors. What Chanel Iman responds with: It’s a quick fix when you have no makeup on. It’s instant glamor. It’s true. It’s why I do it, and will continue to do it – when it’s appropriate. Men – this does not apply to you – unless you’re hungover. And you’re at brunch. Then, wear away.
CONGRATULATIONS DC!!! You are not listed as the “America’s Worst-Dressed City” – Anchorage, AK is. What is also on the list: Scottsdale. I find this funny for two reasons: 1. It’s hotter than Hades in July there, which means no one is wearing much and 2. It’s home base for many porn stars, which means no one is wearing much. Then again, I guess they are “poorly” dressed.
… and for all you Devil Wears Prada fans… the announcement of the century has been made. The movie is getting a sequel.
