It's Not Just Fashion

Because Friendster is no longer cool and we refuse to tweet, we're making a tumblr. Delve into the terrible combination of Charlie and Marisa's minds that is: It's Not Just Fashion.

permalink Here we have Carine Roitfeld, esteemed Editor-in-Chief of French Vogue and one of the world’s leaders in trend-setting, appearing in public sans son pantalon, as the French would say.  This picture had us begging the question put best by nymag.com’s “The Cut”: “If Carine goes without pants, does that make it okay?”  This is the very same question we asked ourselves when we first saw this photo, because although Lady Gaga and the S/S 2010 runways have been practically pushing the no-pants trend down our throats, we truly did not  believe that it would ever become acceptable.  And yet, here we have a woman who epitomizes French-chic (aka global-chic), seemingly pulling off the no-pants trend, in a lace bodysuit no less!!! *see previous posts about our obsession with lace.  We think that Carine has officially opened the no-pants floodgates: where is this trend appropriate?  Where might one buy an outfit that manages to work even without pants?  What will our grandparents think?!  The list goes on and on.
What do you think about the no-pants trend:  Should it catch on?  Will it catch on?  And who can actually pull it off?

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: Alexander McQueen is not easy to pull off, but if there is one fierce fashionista who can do it, it’s the pop phenom that is Lady Gaga.  In her latest (and very catchy might we add) music video “Bad Romance”, Gaga rocks McQueen S/S 2010 throughout what appears to be some sort of captive dream-like sequence.  Her wardrobe is, of course, highly appropriate considering the world premiere of the “Bad Romance” single was at the McQueen show this past fall.  Honestly, we do not know who else could possibly walk, much less dance in those insane shoes.  Maybe that’s why we only see a flash of Gaga walking in the towering glittery heels; we can picture that some poor intern had to catch her each time she fell trying to walk in those.  ”Bad Romance” has been a staple in the gym mix on our ipod and we’re excited to now have a McQueen-clad Gaga as a visual to go along with the song.

*We can’t find any stills of Gaga from the video yet, but here’s the S/S 2010 finale McQueen outfit that she rocks toward the end of the video

permalink Apparently last night in the land of Gaga it was Opposite Day:
Underwear over clothes!
Claws for hands!
Underwear on head!
Deodorant over clothes!
Oh LG what will you think of next?

permalink SO!AMAZING!  Also, apparently Lady Gaga’s dress has a 30 ft. train, how will they even capture the epicness of a train that long on Gossip Girl???
*Please note Dan’s awkwardness which is so dead on because he would be grinning sillily like that if he had his arm around a nipple tape-wearing lady Gag

permalink This just in: the no-pants trend has officially DIED. Perez killed it. He stabbed it with a knife, then he beat it up, then he kicked it into the Hudson River. Lady Gaga head for the hills (or any store where you can purchase pants). Sorry we have to go throw up and rip our eyes out…
