Here’s this week’s fashion gossip and other news. The Good, the Bad, and the UGLY!
10. 8-Year-Old Girl Gets Injected with Botox by Mom
Oh hecks no. As if it’s not weird enough that there is an exclusive makeup line for 8-year-old girls/tweens (geoGIRL), we just found out that a mom (who, by the way is NOT a doctor) is injecting Botox to her 8-year-old girl. Why? Apparently, she wants her daughter, Britney, to “become a superstar.” Youch!
09. Rachel Zoe Gives Birth to Baby Boy!
Woohoo! Just last week, we were excited to fill you guys in that Rachel Zoe was carrying this gorgeous Alexander McQueen bag, but we’re even more excited that she now has a baby boy to go along with it! Apparently, the fashionista and her beau weren’t kidding about designer baby accessories since they have been noted saying, “[We] won’t be surprised if our baby has Chanel diapers, Missoni blankets and an Hermès bassinet.” Congratz!
08. Rebecca Minkoff Announces She’s Preggos!
What a week of baby news! Let’s congratulate Rebecca Minkoff for announcing earlier this week via Twitter that she is three months pregnant! Though a bit small for an actual diaper bag, will we see Rebecca carrying her own label’s Knocked Up Nylon bag to carry baby necessities? Let’s certainly hope so!
07. Alexander Wang Didn’t Know His Shirt was On Backwards in Interview!
Aw, if this happened to someone like Charlie Sheen or Tiger Woods, we actually wouldn’t really care for the news. But for it to happen to the super awkwardly cute Alexander Wang? This is equally comparable to looking at photos of kittens and puppies. During an interview with the British newspaper, Telegraph.co.uk, Alexander Wang noticed his shirt was on backwards and decided to put it on the right way – yes even in front of the interviewer herself! Seriously, a never dull moment with Mr. Wang!
06. Models Take on the Cotton Ball Diet to Lay Off Hunger
Model Sessilee Lopez’s mom just launched her own book titled, Making a Supermodel where she lets us into what really goes on behind closed doors of the modeling industry. It seems that Sessillee Lopez has seen other models eat cotton balls dipped in orange juice before mealtime so that they wouldn’t need to eat as much. This Cotton Ball Diet is actually quite popular among models.
05. American Apparel’s CEO Gets Sued. Again.
As if being sued once didn’t prove a lesson to American Apparel CEO, Dov Charney. Apparently, 19-year-old gal Kimbra Lo is suing Dov Charney for sexually harassing her. Kimbra Lo was a former sales associate at the chain store who was harassed by Charney at his home. While discussing potential modeling gigs, Charney allegedly got naked and forced her to do ahem sexual deeds.
04. Jessica SImpson’s Latest Venture… Scuba Heels?!
Jessica Simpson has made its mark in the fashion industry (esp. here in Chictopia!) with her adorable shoe line, but we’re not sure if we’re feeling her latest venture. She tweeted earlier this week that her latest design for the Jessica Simpson Collection would be scuba heels. Luckily it was a joke! We won’t be seeing any Chictopians sporting these—crisis averted!
03. Ex-Vogue Paris Editor, Carine Roitfeld Joins Barneys’ New York
With an impressive resume like Carine Roitfeld’s, we weren’t surprised that Ex- Vogue Paris editor would have a hard time finding a job after we found out that she was leaving the magazine a month ago. Carine Roitfeld is now in New York on the works for Barneys’ Fall 2011 campaign as their guest stylist, editor, and inspiration. Not a bad leap from her old job, huh?
02. D&G May Actually Go to Jail for Not Doing Taxes
Think just because you’re in the fashion industry you won’t be indicted for not paying your taxes? Think again! The designer duo, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, have been under investigating for not paying taxes up to $1 billion (yowza!) since November 2008. Though the news have been on the down-low, we won’t know until later today (Friday, March 25, 2011) if they will actually go to trial. Well, at least they’d be the most fashionable ones there, right?
01. Ultimate Style Icon, Elizabeth Taylor, Passes Away at Age 79
Deemed one of the most fashionable people on earth, Elizabeth Taylor passes away on March 23, 2011 due to congestive heart failure. Since the diagnosis back in 2004, she’s laid low in the public eye due to her conscious nature but did tweet on a regular basis. Though she was made famous for her movies like “Who’s Afraid of Virgina Woolf?” and “Cleopatra,” in the fashion industry, she’s will continue to be the ultimate fashion icon. Never did we once see her lose her famous gorgeous black locks and bold red lips. R.I.P. to the legendary Elizabeth Taylor.
