A Little Uper & A Little Downer

Currently obsessed with these little aliens, Cody Young and Rosemary Smith.

A little creeped out by this elder alien, (he has to be from another world, right?) Karl Lagerfeld.

"What in the world is he doing" you ask? Oh nothing. Just touching his chocolate sculpture of Italian model Baptiste Giabiconi while standing in the chocolate hotel room he created. Why, what are you doing???

A little uper and a little downer for your afternoon folks.

Fix Me Mr. Rowland

Next glamazon Catherine McNeil has jumped ship and scooted her way over to Paul Rowland's image board at Ford. No word as to what prompted the switch, but something tells me that after McNeil's self- hair chopping meltdown this past New Year, Next wasn't too upset to see her go.

Retirement Suites You- Really

Looking not at all a supermodel, Cindy Crawford scores the May cover of Mexican Vogue. It appears that perhaps Ms. Crawford has had some work done (ala Janice Dickinson perhaps?) and is a bit more than uncomfortable in front of the camera. I get that it's been awhile since you're hayday Cindy, but holy stiff pose and awkward face.

More JC Penney home goods, less high fashion please.

Coachella Disasters 2011

Has hipster died and been reincarnated as mis-matched slutty?

Good move on the Uggs. I can see how this outdoor music festival in LA could be mistaken for a midwestern college campus in December.

Cool kid wanna be brought to you by Wetseal.

Da na na na, na na, na na- can't touch this. No really, I'm not even going to touch this.

Oh the Drama

Rumor has it there was quite the change up at the Mert & Alas set of the highly anticipated Versace campaign. The pair is said to have begun shooting 6 girls, among them Candice Swanepoel and Daphne Groeneveld, but by the final day had sent everyone home to make it a one gal only show. Model watchers on Fashin have placed their bets, and with the only information being that chosen one is a "dark, short haired cover star" the most likely guesses would be...

Saskia de Brauw or Eliza Cummings. Although I am not sure how much of a "cover star" I would consider Eliza, so my money is on Saskia.

Who do you think should be the next face of Versace?

Still Kicking Ass & Taking Names

Not sure what I am more impressed with here- the beautiful fashion, or the way these women wear them.

American Vogue previews the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Savage Beauty, a tribute to the late Alexander McQueen.

Karen Elson, drop dead gorgeous and serving it at 32 years, showing her preteen colleagues how it's done.

All American beauty Karlie Kloss, already a veteran and icon in the industry at the young age of 19. This girl can pose the hell out of anyone.

Brazilian supermodel Raquel Zimmerman, proving you still be brilliant and in demand at 28.

Rock on ladies, rock on.

Child Labor

Really. You're not that cute.

11 year old Cecilia Cassini is the self proclaimed "youngest fashion designer" in America. Her clothes are a tiny version of something you would imagine Paris Hilton would wear. Yes, ewww. But either way, more power to her for being more "successful" and sadly, probably richer, than I am while she's only in the 6th grade. Anyway- I have to wonder, what is our fascination with small things? Think about it. This girl isn't a talented designer and she's a diva brat who needs to be reeled in a bit (see video below), but she's small, and young, so we love her? Second example- Tavi of Style Rookie. At 11 years old this kid starts a fashion blog and since, has been invited to fashion shows all over the world and appeared in New York Times Magazine and Teen Vogue. And for what? For being a fashion icon? Please. Find me one outfit this kid has put together that any self respecting, fashionable adult would wear and I will give you my Louboutins. And hello- some of the worlds most in demand supermodels have yet to celebrate their 18th birthdays. What's the deal folks? Are we dried up at 20 yrs now? *Shudders* I dread to think.
