Harper’s “Bazaar” Attempt to Make Me Spend Money

It’s hard for a hardened fashionite to admit love to a single publication, being that there are sooo many options, and no mere mortal has the time, or the bank account, to purchase and privy all the amazing editorials produced each month in lesser known titles like Acne Paper or Purple Mag, which is why it’s refreshing for me to be able to admit that Harper’s is my hands down, favorite big box, kind of the equivalent of Walmart to Dazed & Confused‘s mom & pop, fashion glossy.

Sh*t Maybelline Says, Taking It (Back) to the Creek and Roberto Cavalli Ran Out of F*cks to Give

- Ah, the future. Hopefully New York will legalize, or at least decriminalize, marijuana so we can get these badass weed vending machines. [MSN]

Megan Fox is preggers with her first child thanks to 90210 alum/perennial hottie Brian Austin Green. I guess a naked pregnant photoshoot is  pretty much inevitable at this point. [E!]

Lifetime’s New ’24 Hour Catwalk’ is Exactly What it Seems

Designers. Start your collections. Now. I’ll be back in exactly 24 hours, and it had better be good and done. That, my dear, is the premise of Lifetime‘s newest competitive fashion show, 24 Hour Catwalk, hosted by our dear Alexa Chung. In each episode, four designers will create a garment, and two will be eliminated. The two remaining designers will then each create a three-piece collection with the aid of professional and mouthy sewers. At the end of those 24 hours, they present to the judges: design star and collab-addict Cynthia Rowley, PR guru James LaForce (sans Stevens) and the Very Classy fashion editor Derek Blasberg. It premieres Januray 10, 2012. See the sneak preview here.

A procession complete with a flower girl, bridesmaids, groomsmen — all attired in Doyle Mueser — and officiated by Father Andrew O’Connor lit up the W Hotel‘s Great Room this afternoon. When models Miles and Lydia exchanged their vows, the wedding party threw their bouquets in the air to a roomful of applause. It was partly for the happy young couple but also for a thoroughly pretty collection heavy on bugle beads, sheer fabrics and flowery embellishments. Mazel to the kids!

Online super retailer Net-a-Porter asked a panel of industry experts, including Paper Magazine‘s Mickey Boardman, gal about town and Harper’s Bazaar Editor-at-Large Derek Blasberg and Bloglovin’ founder Mattias Swenson to select their top ten favorite blogs.

RANDOM COOL SHIT: I Wish Derek Blasberg Narrated My Life.

 

RANDOM COOL SHIT: I Wish Derek Blasberg Narrated My Life.

Every week I set a new book for myself to read, just something to add to my life. This week I came across a book called Classy by the one and only V Magazine’s Editor Derek Blasberg. I might be behind a bit on this update, finding out that this book came out in April but is this a joke?!
