SAVED BY THE BELL FASHION INSPIRATION
If you’re like us, you were disappointed that high school wasn’t like Bayside High. Honestly, who didn’t look up to poofy haired Kelly Kapowski or Lisa Turtle? College Fashion did an inspiration article on the late 80s/early 90s styles from the California girls who got to smooch on our boo Zach Morris.
JESSICA BIEL IN DIOR…THOUGHTS?
Everyone’s been talking about Jessica Biel making a red carpet appearance in the Raf Simons debut Dior couture dress. Is the necklace too heavy? Why couldn’t they cut the length of the dress?

WHITNEY PORT WANTS DONATIONS TO PUT ON FASHION SHOW
Reading about the Whitney Eve “charity” to put on a show during fashion week also made us wonder… why is she asking for money?
We’re so proud of our friends over at Portable TV and Svbscription who are putting on their first conference on September 5, the day before fashion week starts, with guest speakers such as Susie Lau and Gia Coppola.
A recent photoshopped cover of duchess Kate Middleton on Marie Claire has sparked a bit of controversy about the line between journalism and… fan art? Read about it at The Genteel.
While we don’t think these comic inspired items are as cool as Jeremy Scott’s Simpsons Fall/Winter 2012 collection, we wouldn’t mind having that POW sweater in our closet!
