“cri de coeur”

i’ll admit it. when it comes to fashion writing i sometimes pull a “skip to the pictures” if the text gets too long. cuz let’s face it, in fashion it’s the money shot that counts. the show is the manifesto, i don’t need to read one. but i actually made it all the way through this GQ article on marc jacobs! [gold star plz.] haha. it’s really, really good. the best interviews are the ones where the reader comes away with a genuine connection with the subject, or at least when they get to see an honest[ish] depiction of them. i mean, sure, kaiser karl is fascinating in that crazy, warhol-esque, i-only-eat-algae-and-employ-a-professional-shoe-tier sort of way. but i don’t feel any sort of empathy or connection with him when i read that stuff. it’s amusing, but does it seem genuine? no. it comes off as contrived and cold. just because these top designers have internationally recognized names and faces doesn’t mean they don’t give off human warmth. well except for karl, i read that he is actually half-reptile and cold-blooded. anyhow, check out the article if you want to learn more about marc and hear about him giving his personal trainer a really cute present. or just look at the picture.

also, cathryn horyn recently blogged poetic about marc and the genius behind his ads [and one of my personal favorites] – juergen teller; check it.

faux-eyes

so today i officially became the last person in my visually-challenged family to get glasses. they’re not too horribley stylish, but not unnattractive either. anyhow it got me thinking about the recent craze for fake eyeglasses. only our generation, who has glorified fancy dental gear [read: grillz], would actually don purposeless eyewear. then again, it does look pretty cool:

 

and i certainly wouldn’t kick cole mohr out of bed for faking it. [zing!]

so what’s your opinion? is it stupid to wear fake glasses or are they a legitimate accessory?

btw if you’re of the latter mindset, you KNOW the kids at urban are all over that shit. get yer “risky readers” for fourteen bucks and maybe the misshapes will start hanging out with you.

the united states of fug

should have seen this coming. too bad crocs didn’t come out before the ’04 election, this picture could have been kerry’s ultimate anti-bush campaign weapon. also: are those presidential SOCKS?!

i’ve read some things about jared leto being a total asshole, but i always brushed that and his shitty music off because of how awesome and sexy he was in requiem. but this, this i can’t ignore.

wee oo wee oo, it’s the douchebag alarrrrrrrrm!

thanks stylelist

giving oscar wilde a style boner

fashion156 has a wonderful men’s fashion spread up. i love the modern dandy look they put together, and the model they chose was perfect for it. he reminds me of kieran culkin in my favorite movie, igby goes down. [in which he perfects homeless chic and dates stylish older women] 

if someone ever made a modern day dorian gray film, guy hipwell could totally style it.

i should have known when he referenced kate moss

so who else thinks that it is totally freakin awesome [and c’mon, a little cute] that kanye west is so into fashion and goes to all the shows? well i do. he always looks fresh and his fiancee alexis is no slob either. [although i must say i’m not a fan of her ghita line.] 

read kanye’s blog; it’s full of fashion week stuff and other aesthetically pleasing things.

seriously how awesome? kanye with victor and rolf! :D
