    Okay, fine — Anja Rubik can wear ALL of these. But that's it.

    Anthony Vaccarello is the man responsible for slits in clothes that defy all logic and perhaps sanity.

    The gowns seem to work by having lots of strategic elastic bands and underwear-like structures within. So Anja Rubik can go out and show her hip bone but not anything... southeast of that.

    It carries the dubiously honorable distinction of looking at once incredibly comfortable and incredibly dangerous, both in the "is she going to flash us?" and "is she going to trip and eat it?" departments.

    Overall, Vaccarello has a distinct, sexy, very cool aesthetic as a designer, producing the kinds of things every woman wants but pretty much no one with a semblance of a normal life can wear.

    Vogue 's annual, drunken shopping party won't take place in the U.S. this year. Hallelujah?

    Source: www

    Fashion's Night Out began in 2009, when Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour wanted to find a way to get shoppers into stores in the height of the recession. The concept involved getting New York stores to stay open late for a night and hold events that would emphasize their commitment to the Vogue-sponsored cause while attracting potential customers.

    It sort of worked. People showed up to stores, lured by celebrity appearances ("see the Olsens bartend"), free booze and food ("try the latest grilled cheese food truck"), and other random event-y things ("get your portrait drawn like a fashion illustration"). While it seemed unclear whether people were showing up to actually buy things or to just take advantage of all the free wine, the first Fashion's Night Out was a fun experiment in retail-endorsed drunkenness. But then FNO happened again, and again — and again. By 2012 it had expanded to 500 cities around the U.S., and 30 around the globe. Finally, after four years, the event is not happening in the U.S. this year. The announcement has been met with much rejoicing from the fashion media, who hated having to cover the mammoth event on top of New York Fashion Week (the dates always overlapped). But that whining aside, Vogue and the country were smart to put the event to rest for now. Here's why.

    1. It led to impromptu street parties that were actually dangerous.

    Seeing where you're going is so 2012.

    The Rick Owens show in Paris included dry ice smoke and an intense wind machine. Like, 100 times as powerful as whatever you use to give Miley Cyrus a sexy carefree look for a cover shoot. The hair was inspired, it seems, by Vogue creative director Grace Coddington. The models seemed to have been instructed not to mess with their manes, no matter how much it obscured their line of vision (which, these Vines reveal, it most certainly did).

    This is a wonderful way to show off one of the season's edgiest collections. Blow your models out onto the runway and hope they drift back.

    Your favorite '80s icons weigh in.

    Image by PIERRE VERDY / Getty Images

    Remember when Balmain showed overpriced distressed jeans, some elegantly upturned shoulder pads, and a few tight dresses that look amazing on models but no one else? Yeah, that stuff is like from a bygone era compared to Thursday's fall 2013 show in Paris... which ALSO appears to be from a bygone era.

    "'More is more' has been the inferred house motto, but sometimes enough is enough," wrote WWD, sneering at what the paper called the collection's "parody of Eighties nouveau pastiche." There's really only one way to assess the merit of that review, and that is, by going directly to '80s icons themselves to find out what they thought of the show.

    Numero defends its reputation following the publication of a photo shoot with a white model in blackface makeup.

    Source: thefashionspot.com

    After Numero magazine's "African Queen" editorial, starring 16-year-old white model Ondria Hardin in blackface makeup, went viral, the magazine posted the following apology to its Facebook page.

    After Numero magazine's "African Queen" editorial, starring 16-year-old white model Ondria Hardin in blackface makeup, went viral, the magazine posted the following apology to its Facebook page.

    I would like to apologize for any misunderstanding around my recent photos for Numero France. It was never my intention (nor Numero's) to portray a black woman in this story. Our idea and concept for this fashion shoot was based on 60's characters of Talitha Getty, Verushka and Marissa Berenson with middle eastern and Moroccan fashion inspiration. We at no point attempted to portray an African women by painting her skin black. We wanted a tanned and golden skin to be showcased as part of the beauty aesthetic of this shoot.

    It saddens me that people would interpret this as a mockery of race. I believe that the very unfortunate title "African Queen" (which I was not aware of prior to publication) did a lot to further people's misconceptions about these images. It was certainly never my intention to mock or offend anyone and I wholeheartedly apologize to anyone who was offended.

    Sincerely,

    Sebastian Kim

    Most commenters on Numero's Facebook post are not satisfied with the magazine's response — and understandably so. The magazine cannot excuse itself from tastelessly headlining this editorial — which surely led people to see the makeup as blackface instead of Veruschka, as Kim says he intended — by saying, "Oh, but Naomi Campbell's on an upcoming cover, so those of you who find this offensive are wrong."

    She was all, “Let's move!” And then she did.

    On Thursday, the FLOTUS celebrated her "Let's Move" campaign's third anniversary with an event in Chicago that closed with her dancing on stage with a bunch of school kids. Famous fit people on stage with her included Serena Williams, Bo Jackson, Colin Kaepernick, Dominique Dawes, Gabby Douglas, and Bob Harper from The Biggest Loser. Nike also pledged $50 million to the Let's Move initiative, so Michelle had a lot to celebrate.

    He's been wearing the disturbing pants with crotches that sag to the knees but are tight like leggings everywhere else for a long time. He's 19 — it's just all got to be part of his "awkward" phase, we figured. Eventually those crotches will hoist themselves skyward, his calves and ankles will be relieved of the disproportional skinniness when he finally finds a pair of normal pants. This boy has stylists — surely this will all sort itself out!

    Except his pants are not sorting themselves out.

    On Wednesday, Bieber went out in purple leopard pants with the crotch practically dragging on the ground. Not only are his pants not evolving and maturing along with his nubile pectorals, but they are also getting much, much worse — sinking quite literally to a new low.

    And men prefer chicks with butts.

    According to a new survey, women and men are overwhelmingly not into the waif-y runway model look.

    According to a new survey, women and men are overwhelmingly not into the waif-y runway model look.

    Image by Getty Images

    The findings, from the survey of 2,000 people conducted by the Gym Group:

    First, the Men:
    • 33% of men say defined abs are "the most attractive attribute in a woman."
    • 25% of men are into a "voluptuous bottom."
    • And 11% of men say the most attractive thing about a woman is "firm thighs."

    And the Women:
    • 51% of women questioned said they want athletic bodies.
    • 10% of women want waif-ish frames and "chiseled cheekbones."

    Let's bear in mind the survey was conducted by "the Gym Group," which is a chain of gyms, so they're obviously using this survey as an advertisement for their services. But it's still a jumping-off point for an interesting question:

    Let's say it's true (and it could be!) that women don't want to be runway-skinny and that men aren't most attracted to women who are runway-skinny. So then if women don't want to look like waifs, and if men aren't attracted to waifs, why are runway models — and Victoria's Secret fashion show models, I don't care how "curvy" I'm supposed to think they are — all waifs?

    Please share your contemplations in comments.

    How else to explain her plain, previously worn outfit?

    Kate Middleton attended the wedding of polo player Mark Tomlinson and Olympic dressage gold medalist Laura Bechtolsheimer over the weekend in the Swiss Alps.

    Kate Middleton attended the wedding of polo player Mark Tomlinson and Olympic dressage gold medalist Laura Bechtolsheimer over the weekend in the Swiss Alps.

    She wore a pale camel-colored coat with a fur stole that at least Yahoo reports is faux.

    Image by Getty Images

    Kate only wore pieces she's been spotted in before, including a MaxMara dress (not visible here) that she is said to have worn publicly first in November. Repeating outfits seems to be her M.O. when it comes to attending weddings that are not her own. This somewhat minimizes the fuss she causes when she goes out of the house, allowing the bride to retain as much limelight as possible. Because obviously, now that she's pregnant, if she went anywhere wearing a new outfit, bump ablaze, everyone would hate her for being so self-centered.

    Kidding! There's not really anything she can do at this point to minimize the frenzy over her out-of-palace presence. Just wear McQueen and tiaras from here on out, Kate. No one will think worse of you.

    The clothing chain blamed the gaffe on a translation error.

    Outrage emerged in France over the weekend when shoppers discovered jewelry labeled "style esclave" (which translates to "slave style") on Mango's website.

    Outrage emerged in France over the weekend when shoppers discovered jewelry labeled "style esclave" (which translates to "slave style") on Mango's website.

    A petition posted to Change.org demanded that Mango remove the jewelry line and issue a public apology. As of Monday morning the petition had accrued 5,100 signatures and counting.

    The tweet says that Mango regrets the "translation error" and that a correction to the online copy will be made immediately. The word "esclava" in Spanish can translate to "bracelet" or "chain," in addition to "slave." Mango is a Spanish retailer.

    Pressure is mounting from PETA — and Morrissey, who accuses her of killing rhinos — for the diva to ditch animal skins.

    Here's a clip from a recent Morrissey concert.

    "The rhino is more or less now extinct. And it's not because of global warming or shrinking habitats. It's because of Beyoncé's handbags," Morrissey, a devout vegetarian, said on stage at his L.A. concert Friday. "So, God bless the rhino." Beyoncé has not gone on record as wearing anything made from rhino, but...

    This may have been an oblique reference to the wedge sneakers Beyoncé commissioned from the label PMK, which contain five kinds of animal skins.

    And lived to tell about it. (Then again, I also did not wear it back to the office.)

    Rihanna's line for British chain River Island went on sale at New York's Opening Ceremony this morning.

    Rihanna's line for British chain River Island went on sale at New York's Opening Ceremony this morning.

    Left: the window displaying the Rihanna line; right: the Rihanna flag fluttering in the breeze outside the store.

    The media has trashed the line just about as much as they can. The critiques seemed especially mean, even for an odious celebrity clothing line — no one spends so much time hating Lauren Conrad or Jennifer Lopez's Kohl's line, and they've got just about as much "business" "designing" clothes as Rihanna does.

    Besides Rihanna has millions of fans who are rooting for her and who will buy these pieces. And you know what? I'm rooting for her. I'm rooting for her to find a nice boyfriend, to go out in more cool monochromatic grandma suits, to make more sickeningly catchy drunk music with Calvin Harris. I think as Rihanna's grown up, she's developed super cool style that's evolved from looking 90% contrived, 10% her to 90% her, 10% contrived. So, can her clothing line really be as horrible as everyone who saw it in London said it was? I went to Opening Ceremony's Howard Street location in New York this morning to find out — and take lots of embarrassing selfies from inside the fitting rooms.

    When I got there at around noon, the mayhem from the morning crush had settled down.

    According to store staffers, around 40 people eager to buy the line ASAFP lined up outside before the store opened at 11. The clothes are positioned directly inside the entrance alongside an exhibition of some of the clothes Rihanna's worn IRL.
