Kiss Off

The fétiche headline lets us know were in for something a little sinful and the larger than life lips prepare us for a story that is sure to push the beauty boundaries.

Numero never fails to offer up something different and the August issue showcases the talents of photographer Viviane Sassen in an atypical editorial starring Samantha Gradoville.

Fashion news:

For those of you who missed the incredible Viktor and Rolf show in Paris, here’s a quick explanation and video.

Fashionista catches a guy explaining runway shows to a friend, and he’s pretty damn accurate.

Bernard Arnault is the 7th richest man in the world. His rival Bernard Pinault is the 77th. We are not on this list.

This review of Alexander McQueen’s show made me cry. I’m so glad that Frida Gustavsson did the show. Talking to her during February NY shows, it was obvious that she, as a fashion student really had an understanding and appreciation for how important he was to fashion.
