Margaret Cho Wants You to Ditch Your Handbag and Wear Her Jumpsuit Instead

Margaret Cho is a hilarious lady, but the comedienne is getting serious about fashion design, and destroying the tyranny of the handbag.

Margaret Cho is selling “The Solitaire,” a jumpsuit she created to double as a purse with its whopping six pockets. “I hate carrying a purse, I’m so not like that,” she says in the accompanying informational video on the piece. “I wanted people to do anything and go at a moment’s notice.” The hooded black twill jumpsuit has a gold zipper, ribbed cuffs and a smocked waist. It looks like something you can easily slip into, which we assume was Cho’s goal from the start. 

The piece, which is on sale at 10% off for $169.20 (down from a still-pricey $188), comes in quite a large range of sizes, from size X-Small to XX-Large, so plus-sized and petite fans alike can rock Cho’s latest. 

Cho crowdfunded the project and reached her goal earlier this month. But you’ll be waiting a bit if you’re looking to order the piece – the jumpsuit won’t ship until July. Sure, it skews a little janitorial, but throw on the right pair of heels and it’s a completely different jumpsuit. Hey, if socks and sandals can be chic…

You can purchase your very own Solitare jumpsuit at Betabrand

Miss Dalloway is a fan of the cover and simply describes it as “gorgeous” inside the thread.

“Nice one! Scarlett looks great and I like the presence of yellow,” adds Srdjan.

Also full of enthusiasm is MyNameIs: “Love it. Scarlett looks amazing. And I love the yellow and just the overall hues on the cover. It’s so warm and inviting.”

Sharing the same sentiments, dodencebt posts, “Absolutely gorgeous, I’ve missed sexy Scarlett lately.”

“YES! Exactly what I was going to say. I’m really glad she isn’t sporting her weird buzzed pixie here, the feathery hair and attention to her breasts oozes the sex appeal that’s she famous for,” HeatherAnne agrees.

But the cover fails to sit well with everyone. “It’s the March issue! I wish they’d have used models on the cover or at least a more engaging image. She looks nice but the cover is so bland in my opinion,” notes kokobombon.

Jimmy Choo, Salvatore Ferragamo, Alexandre Birman, Charlotte Olympia, Stuart Weitzman, René Caovilla, Paul Andrew, Nicholas Kirkwood and Jerome C.

The shoes will be available at select stores around the world, such as Harrods in London and New York City’s Saks Fifth Avenue.

So far, we’ve only been treated to a sneak peek of the shoe designs in the form of the designers’ sketches. From Charlotte Olympia’s star and crystal adorned transparent platforms to Paul Andrew infusing his iconic pointed toe silhouette with a glass effect twist, we can’t wait to see the final pieces.

Urban Outfitters Removes Offensive Holocaust-Reminiscent Tapestry

Urban Outfitters just can’t seem to help itself. The retailer is in trouble again, this time for a tapestry it was selling that looks alarmingly similar to the uniforms worn by gay Holocaust prisoners.

The retailer was shilling a bluish gray and white striped tapestry with a single pink triangle, much like Holocaust garb. The Anti-Defamation League has called out the company for this egregious misstep. “Whether intentional or not, this gray and white striped pattern and pink triangle combination is deeply offensive and should not be mainstreamed into popular culture,” Holocaust survivor and ADL National Director Abraham H. Foxman wrote in a letter to Urban Outfitters, before urging the retailer to get rid of the tapestry altogether. It seems Urban Outfitters has listened because the item doesn’t appear to be available for purchase on its website.

Urban Outfitters has a storied tradition of peddling offensive wares. In 2012, the retailer found itself in a pickle for selling a T-shirt that was believed to allude to Holocaust imagery, as the breast pocket of the shirt featured what some thought looked like a Star of David appliqué. Other questionable products have included a seemingly blood-splattered Kent State University sweatshirt, a T-shirt in “Obama” black and an assortment of Navajo-inspired fashion pieces. Zara recently came under fire for similar reasons, selling a striped children’s shirt with a sheriff’s star that, again, looked a lot like a Holocaust prisoner’s outfit.

Miranda Kerr Looks Stunning in Louis Vuitton on Harper’s Bazaar Australia (Forum Buzz)

Following an appearance on the February cover of American Harper’s Bazaar, Miranda Kerr now fronts the March issue of Australian Bazaar. The magazine opted not to use Carine Roitfeld’s spring fashion shoot for the cover and instead created an original cover story with the Aussie beauty, lensed by Kai Z Feng. Miranda poses in warm natural sunlight with sleek, poker-straight hair, giving the model an edgy new look, while sporting an outfit from Louis Vuitton’s Spring 2015 collection styled by Naomi Smith.

We’ve become huge fans of Harper’s Bazaar Australia and they’ve hit another home run this month. “Miranda dominates Australian covers, and quite right too. They all manage to make her look good. Love this, she looks stunning with sleek hair. And that body…” wrote Benn98.

“From the styling to the hair, to the pose, to the position, everything is nice and well done. Miranda is stunning here,” Kanna replied.

Gazebo was also a huge admirer: “Gorgeous cover, everything works beautifully.”

“Oh I love this. It’s nice to see her looking a little different, the same hair/pose/styling was getting boring,” appreciated Bobby153.

Feeling the same way was andypolanco: “She looks so amazing, beautiful, and young if someone told me she was 19 I wouldn’t question it!” he complimented.

“I like it. I get a bit of a hippie/stoner vibe from the editorial. It looks cool and sexy and suits the weather we’re thriving through in Australia,” YourMonster added.
