Which Stars Sew Clothes & Win Grammys?

Edited by

Some musicians blow up, then scramble a fashion line around their fame (ahem, J.Lo, Beyoncé, Jessica Simpson…). Others started by making their own clothes to perform in, then went on to win bundles of Grammys. The proof is in the trophy count. Just ask Mr. Paltrow or our Mother Monster. Which popstars-in-the-making are following (handcrafted) suit?

Nicki Minaj Steals Blue Ivy’s Thunder in Vogue

Edited by

While Vogue explores Nicki Minaj‘s costumed place front row at shows like Oscar de la Renta and Carolina Herrera (“so regal and special”), FashionIndie explores photographer Steven Klein‘s blue shot (photoshop or makeup?) in the March issue. Trying to get in the family with Beyoncé and Jay-Z? Auditioning for the Blue Man Group? Battling Katy Perry for the role in Smurfs 2? If not on the pages of Vogue, where does this cerulean Nicki Minaj belong?

VIDEO: DJ Panda Pupstep Blindfolded and Dog-Napped by Skrillex

Edited by

Help! DJ Panda Pupstep has been captured! He’s been “blindfolded and driven to a secret location”! Could this be the same secret location Skrillex will be performing at Thursday night? Invitations with those exact no-peeking-allowed instructions for the Best New Artist Grammy nom’s show were indeed scattered across to a lucky few (Who, me??) by We Are The Superlative Conspiracy. True to their namesake’s philosophy, the headphone/skate/denim brand WeSC is planning something sneaky and totally epic. But to dognap this dubsteppin’ pupster? The horror! Sounds like Skrillex already wubbed his way into DJ Panda Pupstep’s doggy head.

Vogue Still Number 1 in Ad Pages, but W Is the Fastest Growing Pub

Edited by

Anna Wintour is still effing shutting it down. 300 years into her tenure as editrix-in-chic of Vogue, the fashion’s unofficial bible retains its top slot with ad pages for its March spring fashion issue — the lesser man’s September issue — totaling 442.74. You see that .74? That’s called putting in work, kids. It’s also called Kohl’s ads alongside Louis Vuitton, but such is the (reduced) price of success.

An Absent Katy Perry Wins 5 People’s Choice Awards Proving People Shouldn’t Be Allowed to Have Choices or Awards

Edited by

Let’s get this over with. Well, the People’s Choice Awards – or as I like to call it, “Wait, who’s that on the stage?” –  were last night and Katy Perry cleaned house, winning five of the coveted (?) awards, including Favorite Female Artist, Favorite Song of the Year for “E.T.”, Favorite Music Video for “Last Night (T.G.I.F.)” and interestingly enough, Favorite TV Guest Star for her stint on How I Met Your Mother. Too bad she didn’t bother to show up. But as we all know, the People’s Choice Awards are on par with the Grammys in terms of relevance and on par with a moderately lavish bar mitzvah in terms of its ability to draw celebrities. Other big winners included Emma Stone, who was actually present to accept her awards for  Favorite Movie Actress and Favorite Comedic Movie Actress and Demi Lovato who beat out pop heavyweights Beyoncé, Lady GagaRihanna and Perry to win Favorite Pop Artist. Full, unnecessarily long list of winners after the jump.
