Prabal Gurung Is Getting a Target Collab And Other Things I Don’t Care About Today

Cool young designer Prabal Gurung is doing a Target collaboration as cool young designers are wont to do and it'll hit stores on February 10 and items will retail from $19.99 to $199.99 and then everyone with at least $20 of disposable income could conceivably have a little piece of fashion from the Nepalese designer that won the heart of Kate Middleton and fashion editors and buyers worldwide.

Also, tonight there's an episode of Gossip Girl and also the final presidential debate and they're going to discuss foreign policy and tomorrow we'll get to talk about whatever tomorrow's version of binders and Big Bird will be and also we'll talk about what Michelle Obama and Ann Romney wore because fashion blogs aren't allowed to have opinions about the other stuff and actually Ann Romney wore a swimsuit at the beach today and it's totally creepy that she was photographed on the beach and it's even creepier that I'd actually wear her modest Mormon swimsuit in a heartbeat.

And also I've had the same cold for five days and I have not been able to answer email and I don't want to tell you what happens when someone calls me on the phone because it's just embarassing and there was a mosquito trapped in my bedroom last night and my horoscope has been dead wrong for months now.

Rachel Rutt Gets Tricked Out in Head-to-Toe Houndstooth for Nasty Gal

Maybe it’s our country’s obsession with buying clothes on the Internet, but LA-based e-tailer Nasty Gal seems to have a thing for Australian models. In August it was Anja Konstantinova taking the American desert by storm in full-on sequins and cropped crochet, and for October they’ve nabbed Rachel Rutt and clothed her in an equally formidable amount of sparkle and texture.

‘In Stereo’ is heavy on the Almost Famous style shag coats and matchy prints, with the omnipresent sequins, studs, and hazardous platform shoes cropping up throughout. The exclusive prints for October include houndstooth, polka dots, and amped up florals. Like always, the best way to wear these is to wear as many of them as possible all at one time, because if you’re not breaking any sartorial guidelines then you’re probably not doing this right.

But for the 99% who maybe don’t have gams à la Rutt there are plenty of buzzy accessories to get tricked out in. The Chomp 2.0 Cap with acrylic cross “eyes” and silver spike “teeth” is potentially even more eye-catching than head-to-toe houndstooth, and circular 60s frames are so good you’ll want be wanting to stack on multiple pairs at once. Ostentatious leather fringing never looked like such appropriate poolside attire.

Recipients for NEWGEN MEN Announced

Shaun Samson Fall 2012The British Fashion Council (BFC) has exclusively revealed exactly which emerging menswear fashion designers have been lucky enough to receive NEWGEN support this A/W 13. So, get ready to see if any of your favourites (i.e. those who you’ve secretly been tipping for great things!) have made it to the final cut. The NEWGEN MEN results, sponsored by Topshop, are as follows: Catwalk Sponsorship is going to Lee Roach, Shaun Samson, and SiblingMartine Rose and Matthew Miller are the lucky recipients of Presentation Sponsorship; Exhibition Sponsorship goes to Bunney and William Richard Green.

Who Chose the Recipients?
The lucky winners were chosen by a strong committee of important fashion industry supporters and players, such as Ben Banks of Selfridges, Fashion East, and leading fashion magazine, Dazed and Confused.

What Will They Receive?
As with all NEWGEN recipients, the winners are set to receive extensive business support as well as being granted the opportunity to showcase their collections at London Collections: Men, January 7-9, 2013.

When Was it Founded?
This season actually sees four different NEWGEN MEN recipients taking to the catwalk, which is the most ever since the initiative began, proving how successful the scheme is. In fact, the NEWGEN MEN initiative only began in September 2009, which replaced Topshop and Fashion Fringe’s MEN initiative. Since being founded, it's successfully nurtured the menswear fashion designers James Long, J.W. Anderson, and Christopher Shannon, all of whom have received an army of success over the last year in particular (who doesn’t love J.W. Anderson and his Topshop collabs?).

Link Buzz: Karl Lagerfeld Does Not Really Think The French Prez Is An Idiot & More

  • Karl Lagerfeld swears he did not really mean it when he called France's President Hollande an idiot. I checked with some bona fide French people and can confirm: no one cares. [Fashionologie]
     
  • Stacy Keibler's Monique Lhuillier gown is nice or whatever, but I wouldn't wear it out to the coffeeshop if you know what I'm saying. [FabSugar]

Brad Pitt’s Chanel N°5 Ad Gets a Much-Deserved SNL Spoof [VIDEO]

Brad Pitt's Chanel N°5 video spots were, to put it kindly, so, so embarrassing, and Saturday Night Live didn't pass up the opportunity to spoof them. The sketch comedy show turned out four parody videos lampooning the actor's now notorious fragrance campaign.

Three of the parodies have Pitt shilling niche, and very un-Chanel poducts — Taco Bell, dog condoms, and Dr. Zizmor's tattoo removal services — but the most successful clip stays close to the original commercial script.

Shot in stark black and white, comedian Taran Killam's shaggy sad guy hair and dumpy button-down make him a dead ringer for Pitt in the Chanel commercials. But the clip does more than spoof Pitt, it shows him as a victim of the incoherent concept dreamed up by the creative team behind the N°5 ads:

"It's not a journey, every journey ends but we go on. The world turns and we turn with it. Plans disappear and dreams take over and the dreams wake up and smile at reality— I'm sorry, is there really no script? Because I've been talking to myself for two hours straight and I'm starting to sound insane. You want me to sound *less* coherent? Okay. I can just start making up words. You like that? Okay."

Pandora to Support Girls Aloud’s New Tour

Girls Aloud is Britain’s most successful girl band to date (and we bet you were thinking that it was the Spice Girls!), who haven’t actually appeared in public as a five-some in around three whole years. So, when their dedicated fans saw that a countdown had recently commenced on the band’s official website, gossip was rife as to what the special announcement was going to be today.

New Track Leaked
The whole countdown thingy didn’t go exactly to plan though, as some spoilsport ruined the fun by leaking the girls’ brand new track before intended (boooo!) and so, the girls decided to officially release it a little bit earlier. What news did come today was the fact that they are also planning a twelve date arena tour, as well as releasing a greatest hits album called Ten, which pays homage to the fact that it was actually ten years ago that the group formed on the reality television show, Pop Stars the Rivals. The girls broke this exclusive news (below) at a press launch inside a swish London hotel, and sadly, it’s also being rumoured that this will be the last time that the girls will reform — ever! 

Tour Outfits
The exciting news of a brand new tour, after such a long break, has already got us wondering what their tour outfits will look like. The girls' own personal styles have come a long way from when they originally started out, with the girls themselves even admitting that their old fashion disasters still make them cringe. So, we can rest assured that their forthcoming tour will be a lot more fashionable, but here's a pic just to remind you of exactly how they used to look! 

Pandora to Support Their Forthcoming Tour
It’s also been exclusively announced that jeweller Pandora is set to support the girls’ much anticipated tour and have been working with each of the band members to create their own limited-edition charm bracelets, with each set to feature a charm that will evoke their own personal memory or experience. We can't wait to snap one up…or five!
