One-time Madonna flame A-Rod admits to using performance-enhancing drugs (even President Obama is disappointed), but now, he swears, he just does Kabbalah, which everyone knows is the gateway drug to Scientology. It’s a slippery slope, Alex. [New York Post]
Madonna, meanwhile, has found Jesus. Jesus Luz, that is, and by the looks of this Steven Klein spread for W, she found pretty much all of him. Speaking of Klein, is it just us, or does Señor Luz bear a passing resemblance to Madonna’s
evergreen photographer? Just saying. [Daily Mail]
Not only is Kanye West open-minded, but he’s also a fabulous dresser. And modest. [Guardian]
Designers from DVF to Chris Benz sum up their Fall collections in one word, and their answers are scintillating. Favorites include: Aberdeen (Rodarte), Crystalarium (Vena Cava), and Proustian (Anna Sui). See the rest. [The Cut]
Compare and contrast: M.I.A. (very pregnant) vs. Aggy (quite the opposite) in Henry Holland’s sheer polka-dot affair. Who wore it best, Style Filers? [Grazia Daily]
The mayor has spoken: “Fashion week has found a new home practically tailored (pardon the pun) to its needs,” said Michael Bloomberg at a press conference earlier this afternoon in the Ballroom at the Grand Hyatt. The move from Bryant Park to Lincoln Center’s 87,000-square-foot Damrosch Park will take place in 2010, which means we’ve got three more seasons at BP. “I love the idea of fashion being tied to culture,” said CFDA president Diane von Furstenberg. Mayor Bloomberg might deny being a fashion plate, but he’s no stranger to the industry. In addition to noting fashion’s crucial relationship to the city in a slew of statistics—175,00 jobs, $1.6 billion in annual tax revenue—he also introduced DVF as a “personal friend.” And when a reporter asked about fashion trends, he retorted: “I will call Mizrahi this afternoon and ask him.”
It’s not exactly a secret that the fashion industry has a crush on the Obama presidency. Now, more than ten American designers have turned that adoration into what they do best: clothes and accessories. Sales of the official merchandise will help fund next week’s inaugural festivities. Zac Posen offers a cheeky take on formalwear, screening a bow tie and the inauguration date onto a charcoal tee. Diane von Furstenberg and Tory Burch both created eco-friendly canvas totes, while Alexander Wang went bold with a white scarf emblazoned with “CHANGE” in block letters. All items, which will be on sale through February, are priced under $70. They’re available online and at the Presidential Inaugural Store in Washington, D.C., at 625 E St., NW.
