Non-Hipster Hipster Ricki Hall Says His Style Is Inspired by Homeless People

We can all agree that hipsters are mostly annoying.Take, for instance, Ricki Hall, who has managed to effectively piss off the entire Internet with comments regarding his sartorial inspirations. The tatted up model with the extraordinarily lush beard sat down with the The Sunday Times to chat about his day-to-day. In the piece, Hall outlines how he cultivates his unique sense of style in the most eye-roll-inducing way possible: “I take style tips from everything, even kids and homeless people. They can pull anything together and it just works.” 

Guys, even homeless people can put an outfit together – and they don’t even rely on fancy design collaborations or overpriced contemporary labels. They just dumpster dive and accept whatever clothes the Salvation Army has to give them and voilà – they are the pinnacle of style. For how intentionally chic Hall seems to think the homeless are, maybe he can inquire about styling jobs on their behalf, since, you know, they dress the way they do out of the desire to make a fashion statement, and not necessity.

Kim Kardashian Learns How to Properly Spell Giorgio Armani

By now, we know that Kim Kardashian has most design houses at her beck and call. All she has to do is send out one well-placed tweet and the fashion powers-that-be rush to satisfy her every whim. This weekend, Kim had the ultimate #firstworldproblem when she found out her favorite shade of Giorgio Armani foundation was discontinued. Naturally, she took to Twitter to lament the loss.

Fortunately for rich and famous people like Kim Kardashian, the Armani team (who was not tagged in the tweet) heard her cries and came to the rescue, offering to send the foundation shade she needed, no problem. However, they couldn’t help but make a small correction; Kim referred to Mr. Armani as “Georgio Armani,” which is exactly not how his name is spelled. The Armani team reminded Kim of the proper spelling — which we’re sure she will now never forget.

Tom Ford Unveiled the Most Dapper Way Ever to Wear an Apple Watch at His Spring 2016 Men’s Show

Tom Ford jut showed the world what’s on tap for his Spring 2016 menswear range. Of course, the designer who says he hasn’t worked out in two years, blessed us with a bevy of his signature crisply tailored suits, some imagined in the traditional pinstripe, others boasting colorful suit jackets with a touch of the psychedelic. Ford also put forth a few looks sure to please any stylish member of a biker gang – slim denim pants were paired with cool leather jackets, giving relatively conservative looks a bit of an edge. But the pièce de resistance of Ford’s collection didn’t include any of the actual garments – it was all about the accessories.

Smartwatches have only been around for a short amount of time, but being the innovator that he is, Tom Ford is already imagining the hot-button tech item in a new way. The designer unveiled a pocket watch version of the accessory, attaching an Apple Watch face to a chain.

The New York Times Styles reporter Matthew Schneier spied the piece, marrying old-school sensibilities with a modern edge. It’s certainly a new way to think of the pocket watch and we’re just waiting to see how long it will be until we see a basketball player or rapper hitting the red carpet with one of these in tow. Something tells us the wait will be quite short.

Amber Valletta Replaces Anja Rubik in Anthony Vaccarello’s Fall 2015 Campaign (Forum Buzz)

Most of the time, we can pretty much predict which model or celebrity will show up in advertising campaigns, but in an unexpected twist, Amber Valletta has replaced Anja Rubik as the face of Anthony Vaccarello. Anja has represented the label since day one and the change is unfortunately being met with negative feedback in our forums. Photographed by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, 41-year-old Amber gives us masculine attitude as she stares down the camera lens for the black and white images.

Something was seriously bugging our forum members. “That damned text…just the logo would have sufficed. Happy to see Amber though,” shared anlabe32 right away.

“This won’t sell. She looks like a skinny dude. It might be confusing for people. BTW that logo is amateurish,” DutchHomme added.

In agreement was thatsfierce, who exclaimed, “I’m happy for Amber, but this is crap. The logo [is] still ruining everything. Change it, please.”

Forum member narcyza was left underwhelmed, too, ranting, “She’s scary! And this blue text doesn’t help. I was thinking it will be a much better campaign, especially with Amber.”

“Ew. This looks more like a magazine cover than a campaign and Amber doesn’t look too good here either,” Nomar complained.

Benn98 couldn’t wait to express his disbelief. “Gross. I’m mad about Amber, but her expression is awful. That’s just the tip of the iceberg, this campaign is quite vile. She looks like a man,” he pointed out.

“Amber just doesn’t have the right attitude for this kind of styling. She just can’t express that ‘cool’ vibe,” thought congacon.

Guy Pearce is more than a devastatingly handsome, imaginary future husband. He is also a beloved Australian acting export who got his big break playing a drag queen in the 1994 cult film The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert.

But his scene-stealing breakout role almost didn’t happen because the director, Stephan Elliot, thought he was too good looking for the part. 

More than two decades later Stephan spoke with the Herald Sun, revealing that he initially thought Guy was far too “pretty” to play bad bitch Felicia Jollygoodfellow. BRB, just suffering a minor heart attack. (more…)
