Link Buzz: Jennifer Lawrence’s Hair Now Shorter; The J.Crew Collection is Here

  • I'd take any excuse to talk about how Jennifer Lawrence is great because I finally went on a long-overdue Hunger Games binge last week, but the actress just cut her hair and it looks summery and great and she's great, okay? Great. [SBTeen]
     
  • J.Crew's high-end Collection. (Yes, the collection's called Collection. Designed to infuriate fashion writers everywhere.) It's so pretty. Jennifer Lawrence would look great in it. [FabSugar]
     
  • Reed Krakoff is leaving Coach to focus on Reed Krakoff. [WWD]
     
  • I kind of love blackheads (when I was a kid, I pretended mine were freckles) but since you're probably not disgusting like me, here's how to banish them. [BellaSugar]
     
  • Anna Wintour hired one of her political fundraising buddies as the new Vogue Communications Director because I already have a job. [Fashionologie]
     
  • Beyonce's trying to prevent the publication of unflattering images of herself, so she's banning professional photographers from her Mrs. Carter World Tour. Next she'll be confisticating audience cell phones. So un-American. THIS IS A FREE COUNTRY, BEYONCE. [Earsucker]

Lena Dunham + Saint Laurent = Great

Probably some of you might object to what I'm about to say, but Lena Dunham looks fantastic in this Saint Laurent gold tulle halter dress. She's styled with what appears to be the same thin spiky belt shown on the Fall 2013 runway and T-strap black heels, also by the label. The hard whimsy really suits her and pairs particularly well with her storybook tattoos. I will voice my objection to her choice of shoes, both visually (looks kinda lame to me) and on principle (H2T Saint Laurent is what I wear only in my worst nightmares, as I get torn to pieces by fanged monster worms.)

Gwyneth Paltrow: Why is the ‘World’s Most Beautiful Woman’ Also the Most Hated?

Today, People magazine named Gwyneth Paltrow the "World's Most Beautiful Woman" for 2013 and SURPRISE,  the actress and lifestyle guru also topped Star's list of "World's Most Hated Celebrities," which was released this week. What a repulsive society we live in. 

Paltrow has long been polarizing: I find that people either really admire her — consider her a role model, even — or despise her. I have advocated for the latter position pretty religiously. Just a couple weeks ago, I wrote a post about my intense dislike of the Hollywood icon, picking her apart for something that now seems pretty trivial (the fact that she can't say anything without plugging a brand).

I'm not saying that Paltrow's not a weird lizard person, but I do think we should probably all cut the vitriol. Our fierce antagonism for her on one hand, excessive admiration on the other says more about our own problems — our need to build up idols just to tear them down — than about the actress and her supposed flaws. 

It's not surprising, too, that it's the world's most beautiful woman who's also the most hated. It's stupidly easy to hate women, even women do it. Blame societal misogyny. Chris Brown beat up Rihanna, one of America's most celebrated pop stars; horrifying photographs of the damage he did to her were all over the Internet, but still he came in only at number 20 on Star's list. In part, we can attribute that to Paltrow's greater fame, but only in part. What has she done wrong? Like really wrong? Nothing. She's just a very successful, very attractive woman who cares about her kids, likes to cook and has a good perspective on her marriage. Yes, she is absurdly rich and completely out of touch with most of our realities, but okay: let's just not look to her for guidance, simple. I'm taking a vow of Gwyneth non-hatred. You should too.

Channel the 60s Trend from the High Street

The Sixties is renowned for being one of the most important eras where social norms and conventions were broken, included the breaking of many fashion traditions. We saw the introduction of jaw-dropping miniskirts and risky PVC dresses, to name but a few. As the Spring 2013 runways played a particular homage to this important fashion era gone by, we thought that we would too, by selecting our top five Sixties-inspired high street pieces to help you to get into the swing of things!

The swing dress is an absolute must if you want to truly get into the spirit of this trend, and most are so versatile that you can easily take your look from day through to the night. Love Label has just launched quite a few Sixties-inspired pieces via Very.co.uk, and one of our favs has to be the illusion colourblock swing dress (£32) that’s also perfect for hiding a multitude of sins. As always, ASOS also has a great piece in the form of its 60s panelled dress, which is currently on promotion for £30. Or, if you’re more of a lace lover, try on TFNC’s floral lace fluted mini dress for style, which is a complete steal for just £13.50.

Nothing screams Sixties more than a cool mini, be it a skirt or trendy dress. Topshop’s flocked polka dot mini skirt (£38) nails this trend perfectly, and you’ll also be pleased to know that it isn’t too scarily short. Or, opt for ASOS' mini dress instead with chic monochrome triangle jacquard mini (£45).

The high street is awash with the Sixties trend, so, you’ll find it extra easy to feel like you’ve just stepped right off that Louis runway.

List of Outlets That Made a “Professor Galliano” Joke in Their Coverage of the Designer’s New Teaching Job [Trendspotting]

It looks like The Cut was the one to start this trend back in February, when Page Six first reported on rumors that Galliano might take a teaching appointment. I don't know why anyone goes on the Internet when you could just dunk your head in the toilet and flush repeatedly. 

It's worth noting that a Professor Galliano already exists: Grace Galliano teaches gender psychology at Arizona State University. Though she got her MA at The New School and so the two Gallianos have an institutional connection, she's never been tried for hate speech in French court, so I doubt they'd have very much in common.

Listen to Lana Del Rey’s ‘Young & Beautiful’ for ‘The Great Gatsby’ Soundtrack

Here's Lana Del Rey's contribution to The Great Gatsby soundtrack, which will also include performances by Will.i.am, Beyonce, The xx and so on.

"Young & Beautiful" is notable because it's more than just a typical Del Rey song, it's the purest possible expression of the form. It's a melancholy love song, sung huskily for all your moping in bed needs, but its refrain is what really gets me: "Will you still love me when I'm no longer young and beautiful?" The ultimate (and maybe only) #LanaDelReyProblem. (It's also thematically appropriate to the film.) [via Billboard]

I really hope she keeps making music forever, so one day we get an answer to the question. Del Rey will no doubt always be beautiful, but if she wants to keep living, she's going to have to get older. It's a requirement or something. And I'm looking forward to seeing what'll happen when she outgrows her ingénue act. Without her youth and beauty to hide behind, maybe she'll fall in love for real. 

Or maybe she already is, not my call. For your time, a duet cover of Nancy Sinatra's "Summer Wine," which was released a few days ago. It features Del Rey's boyfriend, lead singer of the band, Kassidy, Barrie-James O’Neill
