In this week’s Ugly Gossip we’re going to discuss whether or not 10-year-old models should pose provocatively in high fashion. Continue to read some more tidbits of what else happened this week in the Ugly Gossip. Yes, we’re featuring the good, the bad, and the (really) UGLY!
10. Are You Ready for The Situation…Tuxedos?
Who would have thought that ‘The Situation’ would be a spokesperson for tuxedos, let alone clothes? Known for taking off his shirt and being on the Jersey Shore, ‘The Situation’ is reportedly going to get a 6-figure deal for launching his own tuxedos. What’s even more surprising is that he may even help design the tuxedos. Let’s just hope these tuxes have sleeves. Verdict: Borderline Ugly
09. Zara Launches a US Online Store Because of FNO?
Yay for being able to shop for neon brights. On September 7th, we can finally celebrate the grand opening (at home) by browsing through Zara’s US online shop. Sounds like a peculiar date, but it seems strategically planned since Vogue’s Fashion Night Out will be on September 8th this year. At least we’ll be online instead of in line. Verdict: Of course, Good!
08. Got $5? Then You Can Stalk Kanye West
For the entire duration of his upcoming tour, you’ll be able to see Kanye’s life – if you’re willing to shell out $4.99 per month. For 5 bucks, you’ll be able to watch videos of what Kanye eats, Kanye’s exercise regimen, and possibly of him sleeping (no guarantees on the sleeping, though). Sounds novel, but to really be able to stalk Kanye, why not convert those videos into 3D format? Verdict: Eh?
07. Karl Lagerfeld’s Collection with Macy’s: EPIC
While we’re not sure how The Situation’s tuxedos will sell, but we’re extremely excited to get the first look on Karl Lagerfeld’s line with Macy’s! His 45 piece collection, including tweed coats and peter pan collared dresses, will range from $50 to $170 a piece. So for those who want a piece of Chanel in their wardrobe (well, sort of), get your money ready, the line will hit stores and Macys.com on August 31st. Verdict: FAB!
06. Rare Photo of Karl Lagerfeld Without Glasses
Wonder if this is a publicity stunt for his upcoming collection launch? Nonetheless, it’s a rarity that designer Karl Lagerfeld is ever photographed sans sunglasses. (Just try googling him, then you’ll know what we mean). One lucky photographer shot a photo of Mr. Lagerfeld sans glasses during a trip to St. Tropaz the past weekend. Aw, and we thought he had baby blue eyes, too. Verdict: Very Good!
05. Chanel Clothes Will Catch on Fire
If you recently purchased a few of the luxury items, don’t stand next to a stove cause your clothes may end up catching on fire. An announcement was made to recall the clothes while also advising customers to refund their silky Chanel clothing to the stores. We knew Chanel was hot, but we didn’t know it was this hot. Verdict: Bad – Do we need to say more?
04. 57% of Women Will Happily Swap Their Boyfriends for Makeup
Sounds odd, but if you’re one of the women who can easily spend an average of $164,000 on makeup in her lifetime, then you may think the trade-in is worth it. A British study revealed that 57% of the female participants would be willing to leave their boyfriends than to leave the house sans makeup. Guess these girls just doesn’t want to ‘lose face.’ Verdict: Ugly
03. If Shoes Could Kill, Literally.
Not only would many women leave their boyfriends for makeup, but this one woman may have killed her boyfriend with a pair of heels. A woman reportedly attacked her boyfriend with her heeled shoe after a heated argument. Though it’s not sure whether or not the heeled shoe killed the guy, the girlfriend is now charged for murder anyway. Ouch. Verdict: Very Ugly
02. For $1,300 Tweens Can Learn How to Blog at Summer Camp
The last time I remember, summer camp didn’t cost that much. But if you’re a tween and got $1,300 to spare, you can actually attend this summer camp to learn how to be successful buyers, stylists, and yes, bloggers. $1,300, though? That’s a tad too much especially when it’s only five days long and doesn’t include housing. Why not just spend your summer learning how to blog with Blogger instead? I mean, it is free. Verdict: Borderline Good/Bad
01. Controversy over 10-Year-Old Model
If you thought tweens were too young to be learning insider tips of the fashion industry, how about being a 10-year-old model? While it’s refreshing to hear that Thylane Loubry Blondeau is making it big on Vogue, critics are slamming the industry for oversexualizing the 10-year-old. Her topless (yes, topless) and suggestive poses are very American Apparel-esque. If Miley Cyrus’s topless editorial in the 2008 Vanity Fair issue got slammed (she was 15 at the time), how could photographers get away for snapping photos of a topless 10-year-old girl? Verdict: Speechless
