Olivier Rousteing Explains His Obsession with Kim Kardashian

Kim Kardashian and her famous family members have monopolized quite a chunk of the fashion world in recent years, a fact that some folks aren’t particularly thrilled about. The reality star has appeared on the cover of Vogue‘s U.S. and now Australian publications, and will appear in a 30-plus page spread for LOVE magazine decked out in Prada. But Kim’s presence in the industry isn’t a bother to Olivier Rousteing, who cast her and husband Kanye West to front Balmain’s spring menswear campaign

At 28, Rousteing is noted for being extremely social media savvy, hip and current. And while some may poo-poo his relationship with Kim, the designer thinks she’s all that. “She is insanely beautiful, smart, confident, a business woman,” he told The Guardian, noting that the reality star is actually Balmain’s ideal customer. “I love also that she is not a typical American. She has Armenian origins, she is with Kanye, who is black, and she has a mixed-race daughter. For me, that is how modern couples are.”

So, there you have it: The allure of Kim Kardashian, according to one young Frenchman.

Karl Lagerfeld’s Sister Is Just a Regular Grandma Living in Connecticut

We all know it’s friggin’ great being in Karl Lagerfeld’s crew, but if you’re a member of his actual family, you’re watching the designer live out his fabulous life from the sidelines, brimming with pride. Or at least you are if you’re Christiane Johnson, Lagerfeld’s older sister who lives in Portland, Connecticut.

In a recent The New York Times article outlining the life of Brad Kroenig, a member of Lagerfeld’s crew, the designer mentions that his entourage is like his family since he has none. He briefly mentions his sister, but adds that she and her ilk never send him Christmas cards.

Well, if there is any bad blood between the designer and his sister, she certainly doesn’t know it. The Daily Mail caught up with the 83-year-old big sis of the fashion mogul, who says she is very proud of her brother and has clippings of his accomplishments in her home. Johnson and Lagerfeld have not seen each other since the 70s. She says they started drifting after he became a hit in Paris. One of the last times she saw him, Lagerfeld came in a limo to visit her in Portland. “That was the time when limousines were a bit special. The whole town saw a limousine come through – that was really something. I think he had his glasses on.” But of course he did.

Johnson says she hasn’t seen her brother over the years because of his busy schedule and how difficult it is to coordinate spending time together. They do occasionally write each other and she says that she would welcome Lagerfeld with open arms if he came to visit her in Connecticut again.

We know Lagerfeld’s a busy guy, but we have a hard time imagining him being too busy to not see his flesh and blood for over 40 years. That’s a really long time. And considering how accommodating Mr. Lagerfeld is with those he is not related to, it seems a little hard to believe he couldn’t invite his sister, her children or any of his six grand nieces and nephews at least to a Chanel fashion show. But who knows? Family stuff is complicated.

Connecticut isn’t that far from New York City — maybe he’ll have the family come around to see the Paris-Salzburg Métiers d’Art show in March…or maybe not.

Peen Takes Center Stage at Rick Owens’ Men’s Show (NSFW, Obviously)

We’re used to seeing naked breasts on the runway and it always seems a little unfair. We like boobs just as much as the next person, but the media tends to be more comfortable with putting lady parts on display than they are with boy goodies. Thank goodness then for Rick Owens, who battled the double standard today during his men’s Fall 2015 show, sending male models down the runway in clothes that exposed their naughty bits.

Owens’ designs were artfully constructed to reveal a glimpse of what was underneath — and we’re not completely mad at that. Sure, swinging privates may not be the most attractive thing to look at for some folks, but we like to think of it as Owens soldiering on for gender equality. Women go full frontal all the time, but guys, not so much.

Richard Nicoll Won’t Show at London Fashion Week Next Month

The British Fashion Awards 2014

After the disappointing news that designer Richard Nicoll wouldn’t be showcasing at London Collections: Men this season, we’ve learned that he’s pulling out of London Fashion Week’s Fall 2015 schedule.

Nicoll is loved for his one-size-fits-all trademark, his geometric cuts and use of inventive fabrics, but it seems that the difficult world of fashion has swallowed him up somewhat. In a recent interview with WWD, Nicoll explained that he’s found the increased number of seasons and commercial pressures difficult to deal with. So much so that he said, “I felt the need to pause and think of the best and most relevant way forward for now.”

In light of his honest words, it seems that the designer is taking a much needed break to revise his business strategy and gather a bit of design inspiration, but rest assured that he promises to relaunch his label for Resort 2016. We’re sure that celebrity fans, like Daisy Lowe, will be eagerly counting down the days.
