Manzi Pants

There was a teacher at my junior high school named Mr. Manzi. He wore his pants so high that they buckled right under his manboobs. Don't get me wrong, he was a great teacher, but the pants... ohhhhh, those pants. Sorry, Mr. Manzi. Love you, man. 

Viktor & Rolf have taken Manzi pants to an even higher level with the Top Belt Jumpsuit. Ladies, you can have them for $1,046.50.

Jared Leto Named GQ's World's Worst-Dressed Man

Not the best week for Jared Leto

Monday, he turned 40. Yesterday, GQ anointed him as the World's Worst-Dressed Man. 

Here's the nitty-gritty from GQ

"He's flaunted nipples through mesh shirts. He's worn skirts about as frequently as pants. He's rocked a mullet. He is the Worst-Dressed Man in the World. Look, it's not that Jared Leto, the actor and 30 Seconds to Mars frontman, doesn't try. He tries too damn hard. Don't get us twisted, Jared, we like you, we think you're good at one of your day jobs. But consider this philosophy from legendary dandy Beau Brummell: 'A gentleman should never be noticed for the singularity of his dress.' What we think he means is, try not to look like a dick."

Rock on, Jared.

Saturday Night Fever

Saturday night was quite fun.  We attended a Mad Men-themed birthday party for Luis Demetrio Nolasco at Hotel Andaluz. A fine time was had by all. 

I could be wrong, but I think there's a strong chance that you might absolutely love my vintage ensemble by Mr. Blackwell. The collar, cuffs and hem on the dress match the cape. Thanks to Kamille Crowley for the amazing frock. 

And, yes, I got a new 'do, courtesy of the very talented Kelli Williams. That's part two of the second green hair post. The vinegar/lemon worked fairly well, but not well enough. Yes, I could've tried other things, but it was time for a change. I was more than ready, dahling.

Was Coco Chanel a Nazi Spy?

That's what American historian Hal Vaughan contends in his new book, Sleeping with the Enemy: Coco Chanel's Secret Wars. Click here to read more about Vaughan's claims about Chanel. Pretty juicy stuff! 

The House of Chanel, however, says the story is totally bogus. 

Wonder who's telling the truth?

Louboutin Loses Red Sole War With YSL!

A judge denied Christian Louboutin's request for a preliminary injunction against Yves Saint Laurent for alleged trademark infringement on red-soled shoes.  This is not only a victory for YSL, but also opens the red sole floodgates for other shoe manufacturers, as as well. 

Sigh. So long, coveted red soles. Soon, we'll be able to buy hideous, red-soled shoe atrocities at Payless.
