    It appeared on the runway of Karl Lagerfeld's fall 2013 Fendi show at Milan Fashion Week, atop a perfectly lovely French braid. I'll just be bold and say the look is a bit much on top of the sunglasses that affix to the head with two fur caterpillars.

    It seems silly to enhance a head already full of hair with that of an animal.

    Also, this cover is not a photoshop disaster — it just looks like one.

    Note that in the cover on the right, what looks like a disembodied hand over Rihanna's boob is merely Rihanna wrapping her arm around Kate Moss's SHIN. It just looks confusing because their arms and legs are all the same size — which is how limbs just tends to go in fashion magazines, obviously.

    Just another day at the Prada fashion show.

    Guests attending the Prada show at Milan Fashion Week arrived to find these people splayed out on the wet pavement, in the cold, as fat wet snow fell all over them.

    "La vostra moda, la loro morte" translates to, "your fashion, their death."

    The protesters appear to be wearing the shirts that say "Nemesi Animale," the name of a very pro-vegan Italian animal rights activist group.

    The “Style & Design” issue is here, and Fey's cover shoot is just amazing.

    In the issue, Fey is shamelessly aware of her lack of conviction when it comes to her personal style.

    "For seven years I would literally pull something off the floor because it was 6 o'clock in the morning, go to work, put on my wardrobe until the end of the day, put on what were basically pajamas and then go home." Even the Upper West Side Mom ensemble she's wearing today came from 30 Rock's wardrobe. "I don't actually know what I like to wear in real life," she admits. "It's going to be a period of terribly awkward experimentation. Like middle school all over again. Perhaps I'm a person who wears a blouse with an ascot? Dark green nails? I think it's going to be a series of caftans."

    Well. As long as it's not nail art!

    The Italian fashion house presented a collection at Milan Fashion Week Friday that felt like a clear stance on fashion's biggest "debate" of late: whether people who get attention for simply dressing up flashily and trotting themselves out in front of street style cameras at fashion shows deserve to have followings and influence (or merely a semblance of it) in the industry, even if all they've ever done in fashion is start a blog about it. I touched on this in my story about how no new bloggers have managed to become the next Bryanboy in the past year or two, and Suzy Menkes wrote a whole essay about it for the latest issue of T magazine that has pretty much the whole side of the industry that tweets regularly with their panties in a bunch. I think if we look at Donatella's new collection, we'll get a clear sense of the side she's taking.

    When you're as iconic as Donatella, your views matter quite a bit, so let's get to it.

    Donatella delivered a powerful narrative about how we are strapped to our loud tee-shirts, as though by a spiked harness.

    Forget “good” or “bad” — all that really matters on the red carpet now is who has the most viral nail art. Or leg.

    Source: mjs538

    For decades, analysis of outfits celebrities wear to the Oscars has been organized into tidy best and worst dressed lists. At BuzzFeed, we love a list — better yet, two lists! — more than anyone. But proclaiming which actors and actresses looked the "best" and the "worst" is all wrong in an age when the clothing-related moments we all remember best and care about most are the ones that go viral.

    Fashion followers who remember nothing about last year's Oscars surely remember Angie's Right Leg. Angelina Jolie, wanting the perfect photo-op in her full-skirted gown with a slit up one side, thrust her leg through that slit as though she were half-squatting all night, probably just to make sure that we knew her gown had a sexy slit. I remember what her leg looked like better than I remember what her dress or her face looked like. The Twitter feed created for her leg still broadcasts quips to 41,000 followers. Who cares how good or bad she looked (she looked good) when her leg gave the internet this?

    Zooey Deschanel looked great at the Golden Globes in a red ballgown, but all anyone wanted to talk about was her "lights, camera, action" nail art that she instagramed before stepping onto the red carpet. The image now has 122,000 likes.

    Remember, just a couple of years ago, this girl showed up to the Oscars looking like she had stepped off the set of Baywatch .

    Jennifer Lawrence has a deal with Dior to appear in their Miss Dior handbag ads, so she's probably contracted to wear a lot of Dior on red carpets. Nonetheless, her recent Dior gowns have proved some of the most controversial of the year, frankly.

    At the Oscars, she showed up wearing a veritable wedding gown with that odd bulbous bottom that looks divine on the runway but sort of perplexing IRL — like a lamp without a shade. Or a snail.

    A lady need not bother with Valentino when she can wear an everywoman brand and look amazing.

    Rather than a couture designer creation, Helen Hunt wore a navy blue dress by H&M to the Academy Awards.

    Rather than a couture designer creation, Helen Hunt wore a navy blue dress by H&M to the Academy Awards.

    "H&M has designed a special gown to match the beauty and the talent of Helen Hunt," the brand announced in a press release. "The couture midnightblue full length gown is silk satin and strapless, and was made specially for the Oscar occasion."

    Image by Jason Merritt / Getty Images

    This is huge for H&M, which has earned considerable fashion cred for its high-fashion designer collaborations over the past several years. It's also a shrewd move for Hunt, who heightens her relatability by wearing a dress by a brand average women shop at — something that's been instrumental in the Michelle Obama and Kate Middleton's image molding.

    Hunt's gown is custom — no word on H&M having plans to sell it in stores. With so many awkward dresses on this carpet they certainly win points for making something classic and appealing.

Otherwise you wouldn't expect to see many people try to wear it — or this much of it, long sleeves and all — but it works amazingly on J-Fo, I think. I'm sure a lot of people will hate, it but I love that she took a risk and looked sort of '80s in the best possible way.

    Picture Anna Wintour's face covered in crab legs. Edgy, right?

    With spring approaching, you're probably thinking about tee-shirts.

    With spring approaching, you're probably thinking about tee-shirts.

    Artist and designer Christopher Lee Sauvé has been turning fashion and celebrity icons into witty graphic tee shirts for several years. He recently collaborated with artist Scooter LaForce on the painted tees you see in these images (they're sadly not available for sale as of now, but you can buy the tees that aren't painted from Sauvé's online store). "We're basically influenced by punk culture, anarchy — everything from that to the Pillsbury Dough Boy," Sauvé explained. "Very commercial, iconic pop, but as a pattern. There's a lot of super homoerotic stuff on [the tees] too, like the army boots on the Tom Ford one [pictured below], which is very S&M."

    The '80s are pervasive in Sauvé's aesthetic — the faces with crab legs you see on the above "Save Anna" shirt represent Siouxsie and the Banshees.

    The tights you see throughout are men's tights from We Love Colors. "They do crazy, hypnotic colored tights," said Sauvé, who worked with stylist Adtresa Edmundson on this shoot. "They pair so beautifully with the shirts bc the shirts are printed all over."

    An eating-disorder specialist said the fashion industry’s partnership with a company known primarily for fad diets on top of its size 0 standard gives us “double reason to worry.”

    Models in the Clover Canyon presentation at New York Fashion Week.

    Models and health professionals came down hard on the Council of Fashion Designers of America's partnership with Organic Avenue, a company best known for its juice fasts, which gave models a 50% discount during fashion week.

    "It's extremely concerning and confusing," said Dr. Evelyn Attia, director of the Center for Eating Disorders at New York Presbyterian Hospital, Monday night. She was speaking on a panel of health experts and models, including Crystal Renn and Amy Lemons, who came together as part of National Eating Disorder Awareness Week to address the problem of the fashion industry's extreme standards when it comes to body shape and weight.

    CFDA CEO Steven Kolb defended the deal with Organic Avenue prior to New York Fashion Week by pointing out that the company offers plenty of solid-food options that would also be discounted. "Organic Avenue is well known in the fashion industry and we believe they are aligned with our message of beauty is health," he told Fashionista. "They have amazing salad, soups, wraps, and tacos."

    But Attia argued that while that may be so, the messaging was off because the company is primarily known for its juice, which it markets as a liquid-only diet.

    "When you've got an industry where you know there's an occupational hazard" — meaning, the pressure to maintain a very low weight — "put that together with a fad diet, and real commercial interest regarding these juice cleanses, and we really have double reason to worry," she said.

    Moderating the discussion was Sara Ziff, founder of The Model Alliance, a labor organization that fights for better working conditions for models, who also expressed concern about the Organic Avenue deal. "People were worried, myself included, because you go on the website and the first thing you see are juice cleanses, which require liquid-only diets."

    Ziff also cited a study that showed 64% of models had been asked to lose weight by their agencies, and that "a significant number lost weight by going on these juice cleanses."

    The panel was a reminder that the industry's troubling size 0 ideal has felt largely static over the past several years, despite the breakout success of "plus-size" faces like Renn and Lemons. Chris Gay, the president of Marilyn Model Agency in New York, described his frustration with the reality that the high-fashion market — which includes runway shows and very high-end campaigns — almost always demands a size 0 frame. "The industry standards are ridiculous," he said. "They're not standards I think a woman can [maintain] throughout the course of her life or career."

    Gay continued, "Girls can come in and they can fit a dress they can walk down a runway — you don't have to have a lot of skill set to be able to do that, you just have to have the body type." Yet he said it takes two to three years for girls, many of whom are scouted at 14, 15, or 16 years old, to become "exceptional models." Many get pushed out around the age of 17 or so, when their bodies begin to change and their hips begin to fill out. "And at that point," Gay said, "you're just replacing good models with new models, and a lot of that has to do with unrealistic standards."

    The industry has proved unable to regulate itself. There have been efforts, like the CFDA's ongoing Health Initiative and its misguided Organic Avenue deal. But nothing has changed the scarily thin body type that has dominated the vast majority of runways and magazine editorials for the past decade.

    The panelists on Monday night proposed a few solutions. Renn argued that designers should work with a size 8 sample instead of a size 0 or 2. "By having a size 8 sample, you are giving freedom to a designer," she said. If the standard is a size 8, "most of the models are going to be size 6s and 8s, and you could have 10s, and if a really amazing model walked in who was a size 0, you would tailor the dress down to her."

    Ziff believes the solution lies in enforcing existing laws governing child labor and making sure the regulations for models are similar to those for other performers, like child actors. If models were subject the same regulations as child actors, they'd have to have a tutor on set and a chaperone present — she believes clients wouldn't want to pay for all of this and would start hiring older girls. "There would be a noticeable change in the kinds of images the industry produces," she said.

    Ashley Mears, a former model and assistant professor of sociology at Boston University, said that since the size 0 problem has festered for so long in the business, "legislation is probably the right way to come at it." She also suggested consumers boycott brands if they're unhappy with the beauty ideal put forth on their runways. So if you don't like what you see in Calvin Klein's runway show, don't buy its perfume, sunglasses, or underwear.

    But at the end of the day, "modeling is about beauty, but it's also an energy," Renn said. "That's not a size."

    This is how raging fashionista Kanye West attired himself to sit front row at the Anthony Vaccarello show in Paris on Tuesday.

    Rather than the black waxed jeans, leather pants, and kilt he's recently favored, he wore his signature faded dad jeans with holes all up the front. Maybe seeing Kim parade about in her vast collection of leather leggings led him to appreciate pants that breathe. It's possible she also made him appreciate pants that don't have giant peplums on them, but most importantly for him — a dude — pants that breathe.

    At New York Fashion Week in September he wore this faded Canadian tuxedo to Louis Goldin's show.

    Her students were thrilled: “We just thought that she can’t be cooler.”

    At his recent London concert, Kanye wished Central Saint Martins MA Professor Louise Wilson a happy 51st birthday. Her students posted the above clip to their blog, calling the concert "insane" and writing, "What was much more exciting is to hear him shout out birthday wishes to professor Louise Wilson and acknowledging her exceptional talent to build new fashion mavericks. And we just thought that she can't be cooler."

    Wilson taught fashion designer Louise Goldin, who is married to Kanye West's manager. Wilson was also an early supporter of Kanye's fashion line (which no one liked, but god it was the best spectacle). Kanye has donated money to the school and employed its students as interns for his — we may as well kall it this, despite its absence from Sears racks — Kollection. He also gave the school 50 tickets to this show, at which he wore a sparkly Margiela face mask that you'll find going viral on Pinterest.
