Andrej Pejic Struts Down the Aisle, Carine Rotifeld’s Mag Getting a Doc and Galliano Schiaparelli Rumors

Edited by

- Always one to turn lemons into overpriced lemonade, Marc Jacobs is now selling T-shirts bearing his graffitied storefront for $689, to the chagrin of the graffiti artist, Kidult. [The Cut]

- Jessica Simpson can barely give her baby photos away. The new mother has sold them for a mere $800,000 to People, a paltry pittance compared to Jennifer Lopez‘s $6 million and even Matthew McCounaghey‘s $3 million. It’s a sad day when you can’t even pull that Wooderson dough. [WWD]

- Who needs someone to put a ring on it when you look this damn good? Male model and lithe lady Andrej Pejic graced the Rosa Clara runway during Barcelona Bridal Week, thus upstaging every other biological woman. [Styleite]

QUEL SCANDALE! Presents Fashion Fascists: Christian Dior’s “Nazi Look”

Edited by

After Hugo Boss recently apologized for its namesake founder’s Nazi past, we’ve realized that designers were heiling Hitler left and right all up and through the 20th century. So in light of this —  and of the coming Jewish holiday of Rosh Hashana (mazel!) — we’re highlighting the biggest fascists in fashion history as part of our ongoing Quel Scandale! feature.
