Fall Must List: Cute Ways to Ensure You Are Raising a Monster

Of course, most parents want to do the best for their children. Some might think that involves costuming their wee ones as Chanel bags on Halloween, but any truly involved parent knows that one day a year is hardly enough time to instill a strong sense of brand loyalty in any growing boy or girl. Jean Paul Gaultier was presumably catering to this enlightened market with his upcoming kid-only couture line, practically the first of its kind. Following Gaultier's lead, we realize we've been seriously remiss to not include more coverage of ridiculous children's fashion, and that's going to change right here, right now. 

Do you want to dress your real or imagined daughter in a way that helps foster her materialism, superficiality and status-obsession? Today, you're in luck. Here are some very cute pieces, culled from the kid's section at Barneys.com, which are perfect for any pretty pretty little princess who loves throwing tantrums in style. And remember: her body and her brain may not be fully developed, but that doesn't mean she shouldn't have the very best.

Contrary to what I said in my previous post, there are in fact some Halloween costumes that can't be improved with zombie makeup. One example: This morning, television host Matt Lauer dressed up as Pamela Anderson in Baywatch for The Today Show's classic TV-themed costume segment. He looks spectacular.

As it happens, this was not Lauer's first time gender-bending for Halloween. In 2004, the TV presenter appeared on The Today Show dressed up as Paris Hilton, chihuahua and all. (The Today Show website points out that Lauer wore a Jennifer Lopez x green Versace dress costume in 2000.) In recent years, he's also dressed up as Prince William, Han Solo, Humpty Dumpty and Frankenstein.

Lady Gaga’s Halloween Costume Lacks Zombie Gashes and Bloody Layers of Skin

Earlier today, Lady Gaga was photographed leaving her hotel wearing (in the words of our photo service) "traditional Japanese Geisha attire." However, based on my rudimentary Google Images searching, the Dr. Seuss conch umbrella she's carrying is not at all traditional.

Here's another woman putting her own nontraditional twist on the geisha costume, photographed in Hong Kong in 2009:

The lesson: Zombie makeup, please just do it. (There's a Michelle Phan video tutorial available here, so you have no excuse.)

Isabel Lucas Sharpens Up for One Night Only

Australia’s answer to Sienna Miller, Isabel Lucas, was a prime contributing factor towards the resurgence in popularity of denim waist coats and coin purses circa 2004. But while Miller’s openly voiced her hatred of the word ‘boho,’ Lucas has never strayed far from her sartorial roots: When she’s wearing phosphorescent Dior ruffles, she’s offsetting them with bronzed skin and beachy blonde waves, and she’s made headpieces and elfin braids her regular red carpet appendages.

So we had to look twice to make sure the sleek woman who showed up to Giorgio Armani’s ‘One Night Only’ event in New York City last week really was the same person who was wearing straggly hair and an oversized ribbon last time we saw her. And what do you know, that really is Home & Away’s Tasha Andrews wearing head-to-toe Armani in black and deep navy blue. Can we pause for a moment to admire the sharp shoulders on that blazer?

To complete her style overhaul, Lucas slicked her hair back with a velvet headband and swapped her bronzer for the most powerful face illuminator in existence.

What do you think of Isabel’s extreme style makeover?

Miu Miu Announces Fragrance with Coty, Taps Léa Seydoux and Adèle Exarchopoulos for Resort Campaign

Two pieces of Miu Miu news today: 

  1. For the label's Resort 2014 campaign, Blue is the Warmest Color stars Léa Seydoux & Adèle Exarchopoulos were photographed by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin for a five ad series.

    The film (which won the Cannes Palme d’Or in May and was just released in the U.S.) received inordinate pre-release attention due to its Cannes success and supposedly graphic lesbian sex scenes.

    Miu Miu's campaign plays on the film's sexy reputation, highlighting the two leads' "candid chemistry." From a statement to WWD: "The background wall in baby pink and girlish styling of the collection contrast with the actresses’ seductive presence."
     

  2. Unrelated/related: The label has just announced a partnership with fragrance giant Coty, Inc. The Paris-based beauty company will develop a Miu Miu-branded line of prestige fragrances, slated to debut in 2015. In a written statement, Prada Group CEO Patrizio Bertelli suggested that move was part of a broader strategy to expand the Miu Miu brand: 

    “The agreement with Coty, an internationally recognized reference in the luxury fragrance market, marks a major step forward in Miu Miu's development plan. I am therefore sure that, leveraging on Coty’s know-how and Miu Miu’s strong identity, this partnership will be a worldwide success of mutual satisfaction to both companies.”
