Karl Lagerfeld Presents the Chanel Version of LA Gear Lights

We can always count on Karl Lagerfeld to dream up wacky, sometimes borderline (or outrightly) offensive, accessories for his Chanel collections. We've been shaking our heads all day at the quilted gas can carryall Lagerfeld put out this season (so lame), but the Kaiser did win us over in the footwear department. Brightening up the Cruise 2015 runway today was a light-up sandal with a stacked heel and clear platform–a much more chic and pricey alternative to the L.A. Gear Lights we used to rock back in elementary school. They're basically every 90s baby's dream…and since most of us are broke thanks to the enormous debt the older generations left for us (thanks Baby Boomers, Gen X and Y-ers), in our dreams is exactly where they'll stay.

But they're still pretty to look at, no?

The Latest Dumb Chanel Accessory from the Dubai Cruise Show: A Bag Modeled After a Gas Can

Here's one of the images we spotted streaming out of Dubai where Chanel is currently hosting its Cruise 2015 collection runway show: It's a quilted Chanel bag shaped like a gas can. Get it? Because there's lots of oil in that part of the world — what incisive commentary! As we all know, it isn't a Chanel show without crude regional stereotyping in accessory form (Dubai's economy was built on oil, but petroleum and natural gas currently account for less than 2% of the emirate's GDP). Whatever. If Karl wants to play the enfant terrible with his Middle Eastern customer base, I'm sure he knows what he's doing.

A Sultry Jessica Hart Is Harper’s Bazaar Australia’s June/July Cover Girl (Forum Buzz)

One word sprung to mind when I first saw this: stunning. How perfect and immaculate does Harper's Bazaar Australia's latest cover look? Jessica Hart fronts the June/July 2014 issue, wearing custom Alex Perry while striking a pose for photographer Simon Upton. The shot reminds me of one of those Vanity Fair covers from the 50s. Hart is also featured inside the magazine wearing a range of crisp and figure-hugging pieces, showing off her bronzed physique for readers to admire.

"2014 seems to be Australian Bazaar's year so far. Their covers have been so good! Jessica looks really strong and polished here; this shot has loads of impact and will definitely stand out on the newsstands," writes Nepenthes.

Marsnoop2 was also in the same boat: "Very clean and very nicely laid out, I'm loving this as well!"

"Love the retro feel I get from this cover, very beautiful," commented justaguy, who is clearly on #TeamAustralianBazaar.

However, forum member HeatherAnne wasn't: "Wow, I must be missing something, this does absolutely nothing for me. zzzZzzzZZ."

The Horror of It All: Lara Stone on the Cover of 032c, Photographed by Sean & Seng

The German independent magazine 032c has just posted a preview of its #26th issue (now available). The cover of "Creative Leadership," as the edition is called, shows a close-up of Dutch model Lara Stone's face, her red mouth open wide in apparent fear, with a rough-looking (man's?) thumb caressing her cheek. The scene, photographed by Sean & Seng, is one of horror and menace. The cover is provocative and inventive, so fingers crossed it doesn't trigger one of those "does fashion glamorize violence against women?" debates

Also of interest: the magazine includes a dossier by the trend forecasting collective K-HOLE (best known for originating the normcore concept before it was popularized by NYMag).
