A living skeleton above

There was a time when tailored suits and skeleton facepaint never chanced to meet – except, perhaps, upon the most dapper of Halloween goers. That was before Rick Genest (aka, Zombie Boy) drew mainstream fashion and full-body tattoos a little closer together. Whatever it was that inspired T.Lipop to contrast their sharp suits with makeup that turned models into sorrowful skeletons we do not know;…

Taylor Tomasi Hill rocks Beetlejuice stripes

Thick, vertical black and white stripes. By that description such a print could easily be mistaken for a Halloween costume where Beetlejuice is the inspiration. But outside the Louis Vuitton show at Paris fashion week Taylor Tomasi Hill boldly took the gamble and won. Though also spotted around town wearing the same pants with a simple and sophisticated shirt-under-knit combo, for LV she took to…

Christian Siriano: horror inspired

It sounds nuts to write it but doesn't sound as nuts to read it, so here it goes: Christian Siriano's fall 2012 collection was inspired by horror films. Specifically a vampire one. Halloween designer costumes? Not quite. Though Siriano did offer up to New York fashion week (NYFW) plenty of vampish looks.

The power of cat ears

Attach two small, pointed feline ears to the top of anything and the transformation is instant. Ever wondered why? Cat’s prowl. They stalk. They can purr with a quiet, knowing satisfaction or with a low rumble of just-try-me. Unlike human follies, feline error always lands on its feet. These things are all the strengths of association. They’re why we see cat-like details as powerfully seductive…

Marloes Horst brings the cliche Christmas lingerie

I’m normally wont to hate the cliche lingerie that raises its ugly head whenever there’s a celebration to be had. You know the kind. They’re all of the horny Halloween and “oh, hasn’t Mrs. Clause been a naughty girl this year” variety. Today will prove the exception to that avoidance rule, however. As our American readers today sit down to celebrate Thanksgiving, Swiss retailer Manor…

Russian Vogue leaves Alessandra legless

Late last week Daniel talked about the role of Photoshop in fashion. May we just quickly expand on the point that there are “instances where photoshopping simply goes too far” and note that one thing Photoshop should definitely not be used for is to render Alessandra Ambrosio legless. Slimming with Photoshop, though not in Alessandra’s case, may be inevitable, but this kind of weight loss…

Adriana Lima? More like Scaredriana Lima

What do you get when you combine Adriana Lima and Halloween? Not exactly the Victoria’s Secret Halloween collection, though I would argue it’s far better. So if you’re yet to decide on your Halloween costume for this Sunday night, do as Adriana Lima clearly did in years go by and put some real thought into your costume.

Victoria’s Secret does Halloween; I bite my tongue

The closest I’ve come to celebrating Halloween was to pay some child to remove himself from my front garden; he was happy with the ‘treat’ and I was happy to go about my night in relative peace. This should tell you two things: one, I’ve never lived in a country that does Halloween ‘well’ and, two, that I’ve never lived in a country where Candice…

VA Beach Fashion Week

Halloween brings to mind ghosts and ghouls, blood, guts and gore, creatures of the night and of course Thriller, but this dramatic runway show was trans-formed into fashion flair of the hautest kind. No goblins, witches or fairies appeared, instead there were wide-eyed models strutting down the runway adorned in the eclectic styles of local designers in the Virginia Beach area.

Lady Gaga meets Hello Kitty fashion shoot

In our latest fashion podcast we discussed Lady Gaga as fashion inspiration… for Halloween that is. She’s widely known for her crazy, often over-the-top sense of style; and this shoot is no exception. With hair reminiscent of Marilyn Monroe, this Lady-Gaga-meets-Hello-Kitty shoot is a unique take on Hollywood in the 21st century. Not only is she covered in Hello Kitty in weird and wonderful ways,…
