In a profile about the Sony-contracted pop music producer, Dr. Luke (Lukasz Gottwald), the New Yorker included this little soundbite from Miley Cyrus, who explains why the synthpop wizard owes her a state-of-the-art toilet:

Actually, Kohler's Integrated Numi Toilet is priced at only $5,978, which means you could buy ten of them and it still wouldn't add up to the cost of a Saint Laurent embellished babydoll dress. And when you consider its streamlined design, motion-activated cover and advanced bidet functionality, the Numi toilet seems like a steal.

For anyone still questioning the true meaning of luxury:

Cover: HANA JIRICKOVA for RUSSH October/November 2013

For its October/November Issue, our friends at RUSSH turned their lens on fashion itself, hoping to catch a glimpse of where we are now and where we're going. Along that theme, the Australian fashion publication dedicated its beauty pages to exploring a key item from one of our leading fashion houses: a sheer latex skirt from Burberry's Fall 2013 collection, originally modeled by Cara Delevingne 

"Inspired by the tan latex skirt from Burberry Prorsum’s AW13 collection, our latest beauty story plays with transparency — what you show and what you don’t," the RUSSH team told us. "Makeup artist Victoria Baron works on summer skin with tones of burgundy and tan, matched with a dark lip." 

The editorial features model Liah Cecchellero, photographed by James Nelson (styling credits go to Billie Iveson, with hair by Diane Gorgievski), and includes beauty notes, so you can achieve the sleek, dramatic bronzed look at home.

Buyers Reportedly Love Céline’s Spring 2014 Collection

Celine-M

imaxtree

Whatever you personally think of Céline designer Phoebe Philo's decidedly non-minimalist new direction, the buyers love it. WWD asked thirty retailers to respond to the Paris Fashion Week show season, and a full seventeen of them called out Céline as one of their favorite Spring 2014 collections.

But then, the critics loved it too. Or so they said: the flow of money from luxury brands to industry publications (the French design house is  owned by conglomerate LVMH) can make it challenging for individual writers to express negative opinions*. For retailers, on the other hand, the dynamic is reversed. By reputation, buyers tend to favor the commercial over the conceptual — a specific point of view which is often cast as a limitation. But regardless, buyers control what's available for purchase, making their impact on what most of us actually wear tremendous and immediate. On another note, critics often use ephemeral, vague-seeming descriptive language to talk about fashion. Buyers vote for their favorite collections in a more concrete way, by pulling designs to stock in their stores. 

So if you belong to the tribe of recovering (and/or wannabe) Philophiles who thought the label's most recent designs were either a nightmare or else a very very bad dream, you might be surprised by how well it's been received. Some of the figures who counted Céline as one of their favorite collections of the season: Linda Fargo of Bergdorf GoodmanSarah Easley for Kirna Zabête, Ken Downing of Neiman Marcus, Laure Heriard Dubreuil from The Webster in Miami. Again, these buyers don't just think the collection will sell, they went on record to say they loved it. 


*Hedi Slimane's tenure at Saint Laurent has been an exception to this principle. Cathy Horyn of The New York Times was one of the first to register her dislike of Slimane's attitude and work for the prestige house; other outlets almost immediately followed suit, although in some cases, the tide of popular (err, critical) opinion, is swinging back the other way again.

Zimmermann Tap Eniko For Their Resort 2014 Campaign

zimmermann1

Adding some Central European flavor to its American takeover, Zimmermann has tapped Hungarian stunner Eniko Mihalik to front the Resort 2014 campaign.

The collection was presented in New York during the Stateside resort shows, a sound move for the Australian-based brand trying to capture a slice of the US market – rich Northern Hemispherians need things to fill their suitcases for mid-winter escapes to the Côte d’Azur, and as things heat up back home, we’re already looking forward to a new summer wardrobe. Effectively addressing the rift in both climate and wallet thickness, the collection offered straightforward bikini separates in delicate patterns alongside wide-legged pants and a French lace one-piece with sculpted wings and risqué sheer paneling.

It’s modeled to perfection on the exquisitely cheekboned Eniko, lensed by Darren McDonald on a craggy stretch of sand dotted with giant palm tress and boulders begging to be lounged upon. Both the delicate lace daywear and the pretty, patterned swimsuits look even more seductive in their natural habitat than they did on the runway.

Watch Cara Delevingne Get Mobbed Outside of Paris Fashion Week

No one knows whether Cara Delevingne's fame — which is so contingent on her wild, wacky girlishness — will persist as she gets older, but at the moment, the 21-year-old model has more popularity than she knows what to do with. Case in point, above, a video which shows Delevingne breaking into a run after getting mobbed at Paris Fashion Week after the Valentino show (starts at 1:16) [via tFS Forum member Cold].

Bonus: Here's the British model playing the part of a carefree adolescent in a commercial for La Boo, a new Japanese e-commerce site targeting teens-to-twentysomethings.
