Leave it to Marc Jacobs to create a hot new trend. Robert Duffy, Marc Jacobs business partner, tells Style.com that there won’t be any celebrities at Marc’s show during Fashion Week. Why not? Um, because the new trend is that celebrities are boring.
I’m not into the celebrity thing or anything, like we used to do. You know, it’s like, that’s boring.
Last year celebrities weren’t invited to Marc’s show, either, but Lady Gaga and Madonna just happened to pop up. And, what, are you gonna tell The Lady and Her Holiness no?
Leave it to the world of fashion to be like, “Hey, um, celebrities are out this season.” It seems like a way to save money, I guess, since designers pay lots of money for celebrities to sit in the front row. Which I think it kind of dumb, anyway. I mean, you should go to the show because you want to and because it’s fabulous, not for a paycheck, you skallywag!
And at least that means we will forfeit our chance to see “Snookie’s” snookie as she crosses, uncrosses her legs in the front row.
I don’t really buy this, though. I mean, fashion shows are kind of like art openings in that nobody really goes just for the fashion. It’s about being faaaaabulous. Maybe that’s why Marc did it – to refocus the attention on the fashion. Kudos to you, Marc! No matter what, though,…everybody knows that The Front Row of is usually stocked with just the right kind of celebrities to get the right kind of media attention to get the clothes in the press, etc, etc, etc. Hey, you can pout about the celebrification of pop culture all you want to, but just face it: we live in an image world now, and there’s no turning back!

OMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMG! May 28 2010. The first of the Sex and the City teaser posters was released today! You know what that means…the gals are puttin’ on their stilettos and strutting back to town!
What do you think of the poster? I think the sunglasses are a little dumb. What is she, Carrie The Coutureinator? Also, looks like Carrie goes blind this movie.

I’m walking around Union Square yesterday and I see that there’s a new Best Buy, in the same spot as the old Circuit City. What a bitch slap to Circuit City! I’ve always liked Best Buy better, anyway. Besides, it’s better that BB go there than a, like, Wal-Mart.
The new store is huge – at 48,000 square feet – and they have everything, even – wait for it – musical instruments and DJ equipment. Now your totally cool NYU-East VIllage band can practice – free!
On Monday, November 23 pop-diva Rihanna signs copies of her new album, Rated R at the new Best Buy. Are you gonna be there? I’m thinking about it…mostly to see what she’ll be wearing.
