Here’s this week’s fashion gossip and other news. The Good, the Bad, and the UGLY!
10. Kimora Lee Simmons Denies Anorexic Rumours
Popular celebrity gossip site, PopEater, unintentionally started some beef with Kimora Lee Simmons for misquoting that her recent 25 1lb weight loss was due to “not eating.” This simple sentence made many speculate the she may be dealing with anorexia. She quickly dismissed the rumours and explained clearly the reason for her smaller figure was due to regular exercise and healthy eating habits. PopEater has now corrected Ms. Simmons’ quote from “by not eating” to “by not eating a whole lot.”
09. Jenna Lyons’ Son Picks Out Her Shoes Everyday!
Jenna Lyons’ son, Beckett, may be the youngest fashionisto we know. Not only does he know how to choose the right nail colour (hot pink anyone?), he’s also an expert on shoes! Jenna Lyons reported to FabSugar that Beckett “picks out the shoes, and [she] works from there [every morning.]” Total cuteness. So, now can the critics stop claiming he needs psychological help, please?
08. Lauren Conrad Launches Beauty Site!
Lauren Conrad has another gig up her sleeve and it’s a new beauty website that she’s recently launched. Appropriately titled as the The Beauty Department, she has her website formatted as a ‘blog’ where she and her beauty team posts beauty tips, topics ranging from makeup to hairdos to random beauty tidbits.
07. Vera Wang Designs Bridesmaids Dresses for David’s Bridal
Earlier this year, we were excited to find out that Vera Wang teamed up with David’s Bridal for an affordable line of wedding gowns. But we knew something was missing. Yes, you guessed it, bridesmaids gowns! Vera Wang will be teaming up with David’s Bridal once againto design a collection of seven bridesmaids gowns, ranging from $158 to $200. There’s only one photo released, but you’ll have to wait till June to see the full collection launch.
06. Karl Lagerfeld Wants You to Smell Like… Books?
It seems Karl Lagerfeld was so inspired by his collection of 300,000 books (yowza!) that he is going to produce his own book-scented fragrance. Yep! This is true – he’s already teamed up with Steidl (he’s had them publish his photography books) and German perfumer, Geza Schon, to create that ultimate paper-scented fragrant. Actually, this is quite innovative when you think about it.
06. Agyness Deyn Participates in Marathon Like a Real Person.
Not that our beloved Agyness Deyn is not a real person, but we hardly see models walk more than a few steps. So, to see a model actually run in a marathon (without any shortcuts) is quite epic. Agyness Deyn participated in the London marathon this past weekend, and let us say, that with all the sweat and heat, she still managed to look freaking gorgeous.
05. Dr. Martens Now Sells Shoes… AND CLOTHES!
Finally, Dr. Martens won’t be just making shoes, but the brand has ventured out into selling men and women’s clothing, too. Yippee for grunge looks from an iconic brand. Head over to their website to see what’s in store for ya!
04. Calling All Heel Lovers: High Heels = BUENO!
After many years of hearing doctors and researchers making claims that wearing high heels are bad for our foot, we may actually have some good news in our hands. Researchers discovered that gals who wore 3-inch heels were less likely to have knee problems. However, those who wore flats or low heels experienced more knee problems. Conclusion? Let’s bring out those Jeffrey Campbells and flaunt them with pride!
03. Lady Gaga Falls On Stage. Ouch!
Now, if you’re going to be wearing heels, you still have to wear them with caution. Lady Gaga was caught falling down on stage during her Wednesday’s concert in Atlanta, Georgia. With a fall like that, she may actually get some knee problems. Watch the video here.
02. Get Rid of the Skinny Models, and You’ll End Up Becoming Fat!
Speaking of more studies (don’t we just love science?), Italian researchers claim eradicating the super thin models on the runway will just increase the obesity epidemic. Their reasons include that increasing the models’ sizes on the runway will somehow influence the common person into thinking that being obese will be okay. Hmm, why can’t we have all sizes? To read more of the study, you can go and trot on over here.
01. Teen Wears Prom Dress Made Out of Candy Wrappers
What a dream come true for this mom and daughter. Apparently, this girl’s mom spent six years to make this dress for her teen daughter to wear on her prom night. The dress is actually quite intricate with tiers of Starburst candy wrappers (tweezers were used, as well!) weaved together. Well, let’s just say that it will be a night to remember for this teen. Watch the video here!
