Since my 300 dollar computer is on the fritz, (yes, my parents are cheap), I'll be computerless for a awhile, but when I come upon a computer, I'll muster up a blog whenever I can.
So, here are the new LV spring/summer 07 ads featuring a sophisticated Gemma Ward with a pretty smoldering eye thing going on.
It's nice to see Gemma NOT look like Dakota Fanning once in a while. The only other time I ever saw Gemma do semi/nude was in March 06 Vogue Italia shot by Steven Meisel. Wonderful.

Is it me, or has everyone combed a vat of Clorox in their hair?
And of course, fashion darling, Agyness Deyn, has been rocking a platinum pageboy cut that have been booking her for shows like Zac Posen, Marc by Marc, Lanvin and more. A true model is one who can have a bowl cut and still rock the hell out of it. And how grand are those Lanvin sunglasses? Me want!
Mariacarla Boscono rocking the pretty ethereal Mia Farrow -in -Rosemary's Baby- Cut that has been making her ever so popular these days. God, I love it when a simple snip of the scisscors can define a model's career. Just, love it.
Sadly, I cannot say the same for Gwen Stefani.
Her new blunt "bob" (are we really supposed to believe that hair is real?) is really making me uncomfortable. I prefer the pre-pregnancy Gwen, with her Jean Harlow waves and Harajuku girls that actually look as though they were from Japan. I can't believe Gwen forced her mute back up dancers to wear her same ridiculous blonde wig and poorly designed jumpers from her LAMB line that are suppose to resemble lambs. There's a fine line between being stylishly witty and being ridiculously crap. And sadly, for Gwen, that line has dissolved, bigtime.

First the Balenciaga Motorcycle bag, then the YSL muse bag, now the new IT bag is...a $1000 Chanel trashbag? Yes, it's true, Chanel's Cabas Vinyl Shopper is sparking a waiting list of hopefuls itching to tote the large trashbagesque purse on their arms. Goes to show that when you slap on a couple of interlocking C's on something as simple as a trash bag, (To be fair, it's polyester), and put a ribboned chain on it, people will still go wild for it. I mean , you can totally look at it as chic and sophisticated in a modern interpretation, but you can also think of it as a Chanel-Hefty trashbag collaboration at the same time.
Ironic- Kate Moss, the one model who can model a trash bag and still make it sell, is carrying a trashbag.

Scarlett Johansson's S/S07 Louis Vuitton ads taken by the genius duo, Mert and Marcus has that floral trend going on and the slight 50's pinup look and I love it. I know I'll never go logo, but you gotta love the ads. This girl knows how to rock pink hair, mmmmhmm.

So, I was flipping through my Dec. Vogue in Maths as usual, and I came upon an article about the Proenza Schouler capsule colleccion for Target. All I have to say is, I want that purple dress with their signature bustier detail. And it's only 40 dollars. Sorry for the poor pictures, I had them with my cell crammed in my desk in class without my hawk of a teacher noticing. My god I am still shocked, 40 dollars for a piece of signature Jack and Lazaro in your closet! Mark your calendars, I can't wait till February rolls around!

Every year, I watch the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, and there's nothing wrong with that. Sure, a majority of the models are just commercial imports from Brazil, and I don't mind seeing Gisele EVERYWHERE, she's literally carrying the term "Supermodel" in her pretty mass of blonde hair. Now that Tyra retired, we can finally see less fat jiggling. Sorry to those Tyra fans out there. But I usually tune in to see the rare glimpse of Julia Stegner or Hana S., Caroline Winberg and Oluchi strutting like real models. Without Tyrafat jiggling. Okay I'll stop now capping on her now. Just watch the show!

...It does. H&M had released it's new "Gift of the Day" dealie that has an item way way WAY marked down from the original price everyday from December 1 to December 24. You can snatch that leather John Travolta in Grease-like chaqueta for a significant lover for mere pennnies. (Or more accurately, 2990 pennies)

I was giddy when I heard Proenza Schouler's collaboration with Target, but I burst in applause when I heard that Jack and Lazaro decided to join Lancôme's Pout-à-Porterline to make an ultra limited edition lipstick based on the neon yet nude pink shade they displpayed at the P&S Spring 07 show. All I have to do is stand outside of Neiman/Saks in the dead SF morning of January when it releases, to ensure myself a tube. mmmmhmmm.

I imagine her saying in that microphone, " Yay, ever since I dumped Rachel Hoe, I finally have cleavage!"
In a blatant attempt to replace the now resolved Paris-Nicole bitchfest, Nicole Richie has now set her eyes on Rachel Zoe as her new enemy.
In a thinly veiled bitchtacular myspace post, Nicole wrote about a former employee:
"Blind Item: What 35-year-old raisin face whispers her order of 3 peices (sic) of asparagus for dinner at Chateau (Marmont) every night, and hides her deathly disorder by pointing the finger at me, and used her last paycheck I wrote her to pay for a publisist (sic) instead of a nutritionist? HINT: Her nickname is lettucecup..."
Oh lord, right when she mentioned raisin face, I automatically revert to Zoe. I mean it looks like she smokes a 565,600 cartons a day! As I said to my friend M. Donna on aim the other day,
Donna: with all her money Britney can buy rachel zoe although nicole and mischa fired her? hmm
Teresa: Because rachel zoe encourages nicole to stick a toothbrush up her moof after every meal and she deals clenbuterol and she is so wrinkly! her face looks like my big toe after a long shower...lay off puff the magic dragon rachel, you ain'ts a model, you's only 5'2 girlfriend! (Yes, I know, I speak like Lil' Kim on crack when I'm on aim)

Mary Kate and Ashley have finally grew out of their glitter lip gloss business at Walmart and finally started their own line of tees and cashmeres tailored to couture perfection, chicly named The Row, after "...Savile Row, the London street world famous as a destination for timeless tailoring" (US VOGUE NOV06) On the Today show, (Thank god for tivo) they slipped that the collection is already selling at Barneys! Which is futile for me since I don't live in NY! But, anywho, I lurve that $150 tee on Lily Aldridge, one of my fave models ever since that Johnny Cash "Walk the Line" Levi's commercial. It's nice to see that after nepotistic internships with Zac Posen and Annie Leibovitz, the Olsens definitely do not want to be labeled as people who shop, drink, partay at Koi, hire and fire stylists, and go to the all -you- can -sniff clenbuterol buffet for a living. (I'm talking about you, Nicole and Paris)

"Naomi Campbell, who has been accused of hitting several of her employees, was sued Tuesday by a former maid who says the British catwalker viciously assaulted her while calling her a dumb Romanian.
Gaby Gibson filed the lawsuit on the eve of Campbell's scheduled Manhattan Criminal Court appearance on charges of hitting another employee. Gibson's court papers say Campbell, far from being a supermodel, is a "violent super-bigot."
Campbell, 35, "subjected Gibson to repeated discriminatory assaults based on her national origin" by saying, "You are not in the Third World any more, stupid," and "Romanians are not usually as dumb as you," Gibson's court papers say.
"As Gibson was bent over searching the closet for the Stella McCartney jeans, Campbell either kicked or punched the back of Gibson's head during the assault while yelling discriminatory comments at Gibson," the court papers say."(AP)
"Violent super-bigot?!" I thought the maid just lost her Chip and Pepper jeans! Or maybe that was another one of her many severe bitchfits. Anywho, I guess we can look forward to an interview with Diane Sawyer, full of "Are you racist?" questions and erratic facial expressions. Coincidentally, her maid's name is Gibson, how ironic. I bet Tyra is going to go giddy with this Naomi racist debacle on her crap talk show, yet again. All I have to say is Boo you Naomi. Yet again.

So, today was the launch of the highly anticipated chic-for-cheap line by Viktor and Rolf at H&M. There were record lines of bargain shoppers and fashion enthusiasts, waiting for a taste of couture for mere dollars. The most prized item was, I believe, the lovely, frothy-fun $349 wedding dress. There were only 1000 of them made, which made it even more coveted. It was so nuts, people had floor maps of the store to make sure they got to the good stuff first. The Viktor and Rolf collection sure blew Karl's and Stella's collection away with the theme of pretty hearts and pretty arrows . The items sold out faster than you can say "BITCH, OH NO YOU DI'INT JUST TAKE MY DAMN TULLE BUBBLE SKIRT!"
I found this anecdote on mtvnews and I could totally relate:
Susan Chau, a 26-year-old grad student who had been waiting since 8 a.m., was on the verge of tears. Because of her petite size, she was unable to grab at items, and if she did, other women would snag them from her. "I really want the black trench coat," she said. "But I am physically not capable of getting it."
Last time I checked, the black trenchcoat was on ebay, fetching upwards of $300.
Sadly, I was not able to join in on this fashion frenzy, because of school. Which is sad because I live near 3 H&Ms, all of which are clustered in a 5 block radius. I was fooled by the false hope that there may actually be V&R stuff there tomorrow, which is a day off. Why, does the school have a day off the day AFTER the Viktor and Rolf launch? Useless!
Stupid, stupid, STUPID school. I'll be posting more about my STUPID school later on, to tell you how ridiculous the top trend is: Dora the explorer blankets.

So, it's official. Atoosa Rubenstein, beloved cow at Hearst, has resigned as editor of Seventeen magazine. Her reason? She wanted to create her own web-based teen business, surveying her target group through her myspace. As youngest editor at Hearst, she launched CosmoGirl! and took the reins of Seventeen, where she inspired fatties (like me) that they can be top magazine editors even if you have a huge schnozz and Borat-ish eyebrows while being a slacker in high school (also, like me)! So, best of luck fAtoosa! (P.S. I forgive you for putting Paris Hilton on your cover every single year.)
We'll miss you Jigsaw, I mean, Atoosa!

I think November's W, just pops. And they pulled a Gaultier and put plus sized models in the shoot, in the nude. (Duh, garden of Eden theme.) Are they celebrating body shapes, or exploiting it? Hmm...you decide.
Freja looks like a dreamboat on acid. In a good way, of course.
Usually, clowns are spawn of the devil, but they just look great in this picture.
Balenciaga silhouettes. Loves it.

My name's Teresa, and I need a place to release my pent-up fashion orgasms.
No offense to Doo-ri, who made some fabulous jersey gowns, but seriously, Marchesa made some lovely frocks that were worthy of the CDFA/Vogue fashion fund award. An excellent manipulation of the flower trend.(I LOVE THE FUCHSIA ONE)
