FABULOUS: Maison Martin Margiela Now Makes A Clutch Out Of Gold, Candy

March 16, 2010 § Leave a comment

Do you have $850 dollars? Good – then rush on over to Margiela and pick up your very own bright gold candy clutch. Bling! It’s couture, so it’s obviously worth the investment. Man I bet both Warhol and Duchamp are exploding with delight right now. This hot “it” bag is totally an example of what my advisor Joseph Roach talks about as the superfluousness of accessories. I mean basically, bags like these are fabulous because they’re useless! No use in weighing down couture with, like, keys, wallets, lipsticks, cotton balls, condoms, tampons, or whatever else goes in there. I always say that the less sense a couture piece makes, the better it is. Only normal people need functionality or that, like, “useful” stuff.

Hmmm… I’m actually thinking about how many months behind I can get on the cable bill to afford this thing…

At 21 years old, Miss Girl is already a muse for Steven Meisel. Hey, remember that Italian Vogue All Black Issue? You know, the best-selling issue of all time? Well, the issue came with four separate covers, and Sessilee was one of the coveted four. Meisel has done a ton of editorials of her in Italian Vogue, like the one up top. Just look at her work! « Read the rest of this entry »

Fox News Says Lady Gaga Makes Child Molesters Very Excited

March 15, 2010 § Leave a comment

The highly reputable and equally cultured folks over at Fox News are lighting a fire under Lady Gaga’s ass. Sandy Rios, the Grand Wizard of The Culture Campaign, claims that Gaga’s new video for “Telephone”- which you have obviously seen by now – is much too racy. Porn! Lesbians! T+A! A chopped off cock! “Telephone” is poisoning our youths, so much that on Monday CNN reported that MTV banned Gaga. Fabulous! Fox News Correspondent Sandy Rios thinks the video should be banned from all media outlets, period. And that’s not even the best part. Apparently, all those child molesters out there who watch “Telephone” – i.e. your next door neighbor – will only want to prey on your children even more after seeing the video. So I guess you should really be on the look out. « Read the rest of this entry »

This guy is relatively new, so he hasn’t done a ton of major campaigns or editorials. But Good God – somebody put him out because he’s on fire! I see a bright future for him – it’s only a matter of time before Tom Ford or Karl Lagerfeld adopts him as a “muse” – loosely interpreted! « Read the rest of this entry »

The Hipsters Are Coming, The Hipsters Are Coming!! MGMT To Headline Yale Spring Fling

March 15, 2010 § 1 Comment

There’s no way to know how official this is yet, but the folks over at Ivy Gate are reporting that psychedelic indie rock duo MGMT is headlining Spring Fling this April. Oh My Fucking God. FINALLLLLY a real musical act that will actually, like, be fabulous. In all my time at Yale, I’ve been ultra disappointed at the quality of Spring Fling acts. One year we had T.I. Really. I’ve been so annoyed at the peeps who run the Spring Fling shit can’t get their acts together and always bring sub-par acts to campus. Two years ago Brown had M.I.A. and Vampire Weekend at their Spring Fling. Don’t ask me who we had that year – I don’t even fucking remember.

Here’s to hoping the rumors are true! I am dying to see them play live – for free!!!

BFF Alber Elbaz of Lanvin to replace Karl Lagerfeld at Chanel

March 15, 2010 § Leave a comment

Is Chanel in talks to find a replacement for Karl Lagerfeld? It is rumored that Lagerfeld didn’t renew his contract at Chanel last summer, and those rumors resurfaced during Paris Fashion Week. What? No more Baptiste? Tommy Ton – from the street-style blog Jak& Jil – delivered this cryptic tweet at PFW: “I received some news tonight that is going to SHAKE the fashion world in the next two days. CRAZY!!!! …I can’t tell. I swore I’d zip the lip but I’ll tell you my mouth nearly dropped to the ground when the news was whispered into my ear.”

The announcement is expected “very, very soon,” but the word on the street is that Alber will replace Karl at Chanel. If you ask me, I don’t think this is the most earth shattering of news. It’s hard to imagine anybody replacing Lagerfeld at Chanel because, well, he’s been there for 150 billion years. While Lanvin does do beautiful work, Alber is less of a celebrity designer than Karl is, so it makes me wonder if the House is going in a new direction?

More earth shattering would be if Lady Gaga were named as Creative Director of Alexander McQueen. Now THAT would be news.

The 13 Most Fabulous Things About Lady Gaga’s “Telephone” Video

March 12, 2010 § 5 Comments

Okay, so you already know by now that Lady Gaga finally dropped the video for “Telephone,” easily The Greatest Music Video of All Time. In a fabulous “pop event,” the video premiered at 11:30pm on E! news – you know, once all the kiddies were asleep and safely tucked away from the poison and lesbianism that Gaga would obviously fabulize. “Telephone” is a super ambitious video, and it’s really, really perfect. It feels like it wants to go down in history – and it will! But am I the only one who thinks that “Telephone” totally talks back to all of Michael Jackson’s epic videos like “Remember the Time,” “Bad” and “Thriller” – all of which were highly anticipated mini movies, too? Also…when Gaga escapes the prison, she does a Michael Jackson dance move on her way out.

Take my word for it – “Telephone” is amahzing. It is a pop cultural landmark not only in it’s epicness as an event, or how it’s reverberated around the world and collects column inches by the second, but also in how the video is packed with references to easily recognizable pop cultural symbols. Aymar Jean wrote a fascinating piece about the insane branding in “Telephone” and how it solidifies Gaga as “our camp consumerist icon.”

You know what else solidifies her as a camp icon? The many fabulous things I found in the video, and I uncover 13 of them below! Read on to find out more! « Read the rest of this entry »
