Jamie Bochert Goes Boho Luxe for ManiaMania’s Autumn/Winter 2013 Campaign

Both are wildly theatrical and artfully refined with a dash of the transcendental thrown in for good measure, but in a ManiaMania campaign you get one thing that you don’t get from the collection alone: a supernaturally gorgeous model.

This season it’s Patti Smith lookalike Jamie Bochert, who joins the ranks of Abbey Lee and Dree Hemmingway by fronting the cult jewellery label’s Autumn/Winter 2013 collection ‘Performance.’ The campaign was shot by Stacey Mark in the luxe surrounds of New York’s Waldorf Astoria Hotel, mixing up the bohemian vibes with expensive curtains and fine-woven carpet.

Quintessential ManiaMania pieces include oversized crystals pendant, protuberant rings and an excellent gold choker in brass, silver, smoky quartz and amazonite. The thing you most want from the campaign though, other than a room at the Waldorf Astoria and a champagne bubble bath, is probably the opulent Whiskey Go-Go headpiece that also featured somewhat less remarkably on the head of Kendall Jenner. 

Pieces from the collection can be purchased from ManiaMania’s online store

“Generational Plastic Surgery” — The Cool New Mom/Daughter Bonding Activity I Won’t Be Trying

If you love your mom and love signing up for painful and invasive procedures that make your body conform to the beauty standard, you should get in on the mother-daughter plastic surgery trend. (I will be over here, trying to make my hair grey faster in protest.) 

BellaSugar pulled up a press release from Manhattan cosmetic surgeon Dr. Robert Guida, who describes this "growing new trend."

"One of the most interesting cosmetic trends we're seeing is what many are calling 'generational plastic surgery.' … We're actually finding that it can be beneficial to both parties. Many describe it as having a built-in support system — someone close, who understands what you're going through first-hand."

Dr. Guida includes his phone number and website at the bottom of the release, noting that he's available for consultations. 

Haha, please don't call him? There are so many ways to say "I love you" that don't involve paying someone a lot of money to inject needles into your face or cut your body open on an operating table.

Why I’m So Excited That H&M’s Coming to Paris Fashion Week

H&M has just announced they'll be showing their Fall 2013 collection — both men's and women's designs — at the Musée Rodin, a popular Parisian runway venue, as part of Paris Fashion Week on February 27.

The Swedish retailer last showed a full collection on the catwalk in 2005, although it did host a big splashy event to show the Lanvin for H&M capsule collection in 2010. 

If it's not immediately apparent why this development is a really, really exciting one, I direct your attention to Exhibit A, the picture illustrating this post. That is Vogue Nippon Editor at Large and editor of my heart Anna Dello Russo walking in a flouncy hot pink cocktail dress with one giant shoulder, elbow-length black gloves, a furry head pouf, ankle ribbon heels and PINK FISHNETS for Lanvin for H&M in 2010. The runway is bookmarked with pre-Raf flowers and her companion is a really high rent poodle that's totally above it all. Wait, can we talk about her hair?

Can we hope to see Dello Russo at the February show? We can hope. 

Other hopes we can have: Beyonce, Lana Del Rey, David Beckham, Every Model, more poodlez.

Karl’s Chanel Couture Show Closes With Two Brides In Support of French Marriage Equality Law

Image via BoF Instagram

It's a custom of French couture shows to close with a bridal look, but tradition has to change with the times, which was part of the reasoning behind the finale of Karl Lagerfeld's Chanel Couture 2013 show in Paris earlier today.

To support the recently passed and highly contested marriage equality law in France, the Kaiser sent two brides down the runway together. His move mirrors one by French Elle, which recently took a similar position on the gay rights debate in France with a "Marriage for All!" issue — the cover shows two women locked in an embrace. 

Karl's four-year-old nephew walked down the aisle runway with the designer's two lady-brides, after the show, but Lagerfeld told the Associated Press that although he supports gay marriage — "I don't even understand the debate. Since 1904 the church and state have been separate." — he's not in favor of a provision in the law which makes adoption legal for same-sex couples. He didn't say why, although in my understanding that's not an uncommon position. Although LGBT adoption is a relatively uncontested aspect of gay family creation in the U.S. (there are about two million children currently being raised by gay couples in America, although some states don't permit same-sex adoption), it's not a common practice in France. 

I don't really get how someone like Karl Lagerfeld can support gay marriage but still feel that a traditional hetero two parent household is something the state needs to protect and preserve but — not my country, not my problem. And honestly, I'd rather abolish marriage for all and loosen the adoption laws. It's because of the wedding gowns. I hate them. Say NO to the dress!!
