Johnathan Paul Thinks You’re Addicted to Drugs

Contemporary artist Johnathan Paul also know as Desire Obtain Cherish, thinks we’re all a little addicted to fashion’s jagged little pill. Commenting on consumers sudden need for uncontrollable fashion splurges, Johanathan’s work includes a series of large, wall mounted pill sleeves mocked after the branding of Chanel, Louis Vuitton, YSL and Hermes.

Definitely the kind of drugs we’re willing to pop.

Dakota Fanning Wears Chanel & Couture Cat Ears

In my mind, it is crazy that Dakota Fanning is only 18 years old; the girl has been around for what seems to be like forever. The Fannings obviously don’t waste any time getting into the family business, but what I like about Dakota and her sister Elle is that they both seem incredibly smart and well-adjusted for the amount of fame they have both experienced at such young ages. I don’t forsee any Lohan-ing either in their futures… oh and let’s not forget to mention that they are both FASHION WONDERKIDS who are lucky enough to be outfitted by some of the most revered designers out there.

It’s very rare that an average 18 year old can wear Chanel and look at once totally arresting and also completely age appropriate, but I suppose if anyone’s going to be able to pull it off, it’s Dakota.

Dakota has covered the December issue of InStyle UK to promote her role as creepy Jane in Breaking Dawn : Part 2, and the cover shot itself features a white jacquard Chanel dress. Dakota looks beautiful, youthful and extremely sweet here.

I happen to have mixed feelings about the other photo which pictures her in a Dolce & Gabanna corset, a Roberto Cavalli skirt (which OMG, is GORGEOUS!), and cat ears. I really think we could have done with the cat ears, but from what I understand about styling (not a whole lot) the stylists wanted her to look youthful as she is still only 18 years old even though she’s going semi-risque with the corset. The interview isn’t very interesting but does include a question about Kristen Stewart’s affair with Rupert Sanders and the resultant crimpled heart of Sparkles.

ON THE TWIHARD MELTDOWN

“Everyone thinks they have the right to, you know, publicise the struggles and sadness and heartbreak and all of that. It’s like, ‘Why do you think you are the authority to judge people’s experiences?’ “

WHY SHE HASN’T LOST IT YET

“Why have I been able to stay sane in a sometimes insane world? The pure love of what I do. Making movies.”

ON THE HOUNDDOG RAPE SCENE

“I’ve always been drawn to material that’s more kind of heavy, you know? Whether it be dark or dramatic or sometimes disturbing. And that can be hard to do when people think you’re still a kid.”

SHE’S ONLY HAD 1 BOYFRIEND AND IS CURRENTLY SINGLE

“You know, I’m not the kind of girl or person who really wants a boyfriend in my life. I’m also the kind of person… I’m very black and white in what I feel and I don’t wanna be with someone that I don’t foresee spending a long time with.”

I think I understand Dakota’s perspective on the situation because she and Kirsten are very good friends and have not only worked together on The Twilight Saga but also grew very close on the set of The Runaways. Dakota only sees the good in Kristin, and she want’s to defend her. However, I don’t really think the bulk of the criticism over the K-Stew affair with Rupert has anything to do with “judg[ing] people’s experiences” in general. Instead, Kristen’s caught a lot of heat (from the non-Twihards, anyway) for pretending to be above all of the Hollywood cliches, and then she got caught behaving like a Hollywood cliche. Or rather, she got banging her married director like a so-called “typical” starlet.

As for Dakota, I hope she carries on just as she’s been doing as a NYU studen who somehow manages to squeeze in a bit of time for films on occassion. I predict she will be just fine.

A SURVEY SAYS: If you Bought Leather Pants, You Regret it

Poutlings!

Some trends infect the fashion world like a disease and it’s only a matter of time before you catch the bug. One of those trends last year was leather pants and surveys say that they are the trend you most regret buying into.

Lambrini, conducted a survey of 2,000 women surrounding trends they most regret purchasing. With a 46% REGRET FACTOR, leather pants topped the charts as the “most regrettable purchase“.

As sexy as people perceive leather can be, the material can be very unforgiving and expensive to purchase, making its number one position logical. Following leather pants, is an interesting contender, shell suits. While no one we know of has ever bought a “shell suit” that is under the age of 40… An lastly rounding out the top three is a deliciously tacky trend of velour tracksuits.

Check out what other trends of Christmas past still haunt your memories today. How many of these have you bought into? A lady never reals her past fashion fax-pas, but your closet will surely not lie.

VB & Karl Lagerfeld

Hiya Poutlings!

It’s not everyday that Karl Lagerfeld deems a fashionista worthy of being photographed in Coco Chanel’s iconic former Paris home at 31 Rue Cambon, so it’s really impressive that he chose our favourite Spice Girl, Vicky Beckham over someone like say, Blake Lively, because I thought was his new dress up doll of choice these days.

Is it just me or does Karl Lagerfield need to STOP calling himself a photographer? He really doesn’t have a “photographic eye” – these photos are extraodinary boring even for a fashion shoot done by one of the most famous fashion designers in the world. Karl is simply an icpon because he designs for Chanel and because of his hilariously bitchy and grumpy interviews – not because of his photography!!

I have to hand it to Posh, I mean Vicotoria for her seamless transition from Spice Girl and football WAG into a well respected style icon and designer; they’re aren’t many former pop starts who ever enjoy the same level of high-fashion success.

“First pictures from my ELLE cover shoot with Karl Lagerfeld, a dream come true! X VB

Vicky tweeted these photos this week from a recent shoot for Elle France, where she appears alongside Karl Lagerfield modeling pieces from her new eyewear collection. What she doesn’t model, however is pants, and that is completely understandable – if my legs looked like that, I wouldn’t wear pants either.

Here are some highlights from the Elle France piece:

“Victoria Beckham says French people are “so chic” she sometimes feels like she is from the country. The signer-turned-designer features in the pages of French Elle magazine alongside legendary designer Karl Lagerfeld. The pair are posing at the former home of Coco Chanel, with Victoria gushing about how much the experience meant to her.

“I’m honoured to be here in Paris. I love Paris and the French style, so chic. Sometimes I feel a little French myself” she said.

The star shot the images earlier this year, when she updated her Twitter fans on how much fun she was having. She is seen standing on some stairs next to Karl, with her hair in a demure chignon. She is wearing a black cape with the tiniest of briefs, with her long legs on disply. A pair of high shoe boots finish the look.

In another she is seen in the same shorts, this time with a white shift tucked into them. She is wearing eyeglasses- perhaps from her upcoming range – and appears deep in thought.

“I am thrilled to shoot with Karl. I have so much respect for him so inspiring,” Victoria said. “To shoot in Coco Chanel’s apartment in the clothes of the house of Chanel is really a dream come true.”

Karl is currently the creative director of Chanel and is known for his acid-tongue. It seems he has been charmed by Victoria, as he only has kind words for her.

“Victoria has an innate sense of style. She knows what she likes, and knows what is good for her,” he said.”

Okay, everyone knows, I LOVE VICTORIA… but… SHE FEELS A LITTLE FRENCH???? Should I speak for the French and say “Posh, please.” First she was the very essence, the very archetype of British WAG-dom, and then she eased that look into a more American-ised, laid-back-unfussy California style with English-mod influences, and now, she’s trying to claim she’s got the soul of a French woman?? NO, Posh, you do not!!

Still, I bet she proud to have been Karl Lagerfeld’s “muse” for a brief moment. Maybe Karl will speak to Anna Wintour on Posh’s behalf.

Brad, the Beautiful

 

Hiya Poutlings

We didn’t cover the story on our Facebook page (to my knowledge) but it was announced in May that:

Brad Pitt is the new face of Chanel No. 5.

Brad Pitt is the first man to represent the famous perfume, and I just had one question : Will he wear nothing but a few spritzes of the alehyde, bergamot, jasmine, rose and ylang-ylang eau to sleep at night next to Angie, a la Marilyn “naked, except for a few drops” Monroe?

While it may seem odd to Brad Putt serve as a brand ambassodor duties for a perfume that typically recruits starlets like Catherine Deneuve, Ali MacGraw, Nicole Kidman, and most recently Audrey Tatou for that honour, I get it : No. 5 is an icon, and so is Brad Pitt… easy enough.

To cement that icon status and in honour of Brad Pitt’s Joe Wright ad for the perfume which debuts tomorrow, I’ve rounded up some of Brad, father of six most memorable beauty moments – both the good and questionable – to help further explain why putting the blondie boy wonder’s mug next to that classic, glass square bottle will likely distract, er, I mean, compel a great many women to indulge in a bit of spritzing.

1988

Aw, look how young he is, those dimples are sweet. A fresh faced Brad Pitt is the good boy version of Johnny Depp circa the late eighties 21 Jump Street – which shouldn’t be that suprising considering Brad had a guest spot on the show that same year. It was one of his first real parts after a few uncredited gems like “guy at beach with drink” in the 1987 version of the Hulk.

1992

Haha, sorry, I cannot help but look at this picture and laugh. You have got to love Juliette Lewis for proving that there is a fact in way to overshadow Brad Pitt’s attention hoarding handsomeness on the red carpet. Ot’s called skull-gripping cornrows. That little trick made sure no one noticed his ill-advised facial hair and while we’re at it, tuxedo accessories.

1993

Fresh off the success of a River Runs Through It, True Romance and Kalifornia, Brad debuts a serious surfer boy look : long golden locks, a sun-duppled complexion and that errant chin hair, clearly forgotten in the rush to get to the beach.

1994

The legends of the fall.

1994

After some astounding screen time spent playing Tristan Ludlow in Legends, this happened. A straggly, Cobain-esque bleached bonde mop offset by a goatee. Remember the nineties? ha ha ha

1997

When Brad met Gwyneth. Apparently, many females made a mad dash to the hair salon to request Paltow’s Sliding Doors chop – and Brad joined in on the bandwagon and got one too. Not only did their haircuts match, so did their precisely placed golden highlights… Hands down this has to be the best moments in visual couple-morphing, ever.

1999

Brad’s transformation into his next realtionship with Jennifer Aniston did not involve mimicking her hairstyle. Jennifer’s SoCalifornia roots did manage to rub off, though, whith his spiky cut and that goatee once again.

2004

It took Brad long, but he got there,, the shorter buzz cut does wonders for focussing even more attention to his blue eyes, and the most major development here is that the goatee has disappered, for now at least.

2007

A slick Brill-creamed comb over, clean-shaven face and a beautiful lady on his arm = wining.

2012

A slick Brill-creamed comb over, clean-shaven face and a beautiful lady on his arm = wining.

You’re welcome.
