Is Saint Laurent Still Shocking Us?

It was recently discovered that Saint Laurent will be using Marilyn Manson in their new ad campaign this upcoming season.  Designer Hedi Slimane hasn’t stopped shocking the public ever since she started working for formerly known YSL, but is there such thing as too much shock value?  I think it’s pretty obvious that this is what he’s going for, and hell, it is getting us all talking, but I’m not feeling like I’m rooting for the brand’s success.  I’m more so left wanting to buy sweatshirts like these and see what 90s wash-up is ready to endorse them next.  That being said, here is the ad, what do you think?

SNL x Glamour

Saturday Night Live is one of those shows that will never get old for me.  For me, the cast just keeps getting better and better, and I want to be the first to know about TV’s funniest comedian.  Glamour did a spread this month on the new leading ladies of SNL, and I can’t wait to pick up the issue on newsstands.  Not only do we get to hear about their SNL inspirations, but we also get to see them dressed best from head to toe!  Read a preview of the article here.

Recently I went on an unintentional Pinterest hiatus.  For some reason, all the things that were popping up in my feed were either not relevant to me or just completely uninteresting.  When I decided to log back on, I found that reading through who I follow and really deciding whose posts I liked was a better way to gain quality content.  In order to fully utilize Pinterest, my goal is to now not only repin, but also add my own original posts.  For now, here is a list of some of my favorite people to follow on Pinterest:

1) P.S. – I made this…

2) The Coveteur

3) Free People

4) Lauren Santo Domingo

5) Joanna Hawley

Michelle Obama is Vogue

Vogue never fails at making history.  It was released today that Michelle Obama is on the April cover of Vogue, shot by Annie Leibovitz, and featuring none other than our president.  The interview was done during January, right after the president started his second term.  The story features stories about their personal life, the President singing the Black Eyed Peas, and Leibovitz ordering the couple around.  Don’t believe me?  Read about it here.

‘Fashion Night by Bravo’

I can now say on the third week of Bravo’s new ‘Fashion Night,’ that this is my new favorite television experience.  Not only do I get to watch the beloved ‘Rachel Zoe Project,” but it also includes “It’s a Brad, Brad World,’ and ‘Dukes of Melrose.’  Rachel Zoe will always be America’s favorite, but now we get to see her former assistant and current nemesis Brad Goreski as he continues to take on the styling world in his second season on Bravo.  ‘Dukes of Melrose’ on the other hand is about vintage boutique owners Cameron Silver and Christos Garkinos.  All shows are great and definitely deserve our attention!  Stay tuned Wednesday night.

Farfetch.com Hits the Jackpot

WWD reported today that Conde Nast is putting $20 million worth of funding into Farfetch.com.  Self described as a “hub of a global fashion community that unites independent boutiques around the world with fashion lovers,” the marketplace is comprised of 250 shops in seventeen countries.  The website combines e-commerce and social media with a ‘People’ area where you can read about fashion and interact with others in the Far Fetch community.  Sounds like the perfect website for fashion and social media lovers like myself.  And under Conde Nast’s wing, I don’t see what could go wrong.

JLaw and Miss Dior

So we all know right now that this is Jennifer Lawrence’s world and we’re just living in it.  We’ve seen her throughout award season head to toe in Dior, but we have yet to see her campaign until now.  Said to be seen in magazines in late March and April, Jennifer Lawrence has gone completely high fashion.  I have to say, I’m loving the veil.  Check out the photos below.

Be social with Free People

Free People was been going crazy with their digital marketing lately, first with their video Roshambo, and now with their new Social Community FP Me.  FP Me allows you to, “upload street style pics, curate collections, follow stylists, and heart it all.”  Hearts are way to like your favorite products on Free People so others can see.  The point of the community to share your creativity and connect with others.  You can see what outfits others are putting together and pull inspiration from created collections.  I think this is a great initiative for Free People because of their customers, but is this where other brands are going to take their social?
