Me? At Fashion Week? I’m the guy who gets the Lands’ End catalog and thinks, “Too edgy.” Nevertheless, like a lamb on a freeway I was ordered to step forth. My column on the runway shows is up.
Apparently plus-sized, “real” or fat models don’t actually make overweight women feel better about themselves. Via Instapundit we learn that looking at fat people doesn’t make you feel celebrated, empowered and appreciated. It just kinda makes you feel…fat.
Plus-sized models: Should we cheer them — or are they just encouraging more American fatties to have another piece of pie? More in my Sunday column.
Audrey Tautou turns in a grumpy performance in the cold and leaden biopic, “Coco Before Chanel.” My review is up. Warning: I made a pun in French. I couldn’t resist.
The Journal has a story on the fashion world’s current obsession with Steve McQueen, who died in 1980 but whose style is being channeled by designers at Dolce & Gabbana, Thom Browne, J. Crew, Tag Heuer and Persol. With some bewilderment, the writer asks, Why?

In my Sunday column I ask: What is the deal with those floor length “maxi dresses” New York women are wearing this summer? Where did this urban burqa come from?
Department of possibly-alarming-but-probably-fictitious trends: men’s shirts for spring are going to be offered in lilac, pink, orange and cobalt. Color me skeptical: real men don’t wear lilac. These shirts are going to be piling up unsold. I and most guys I know will not be seen pimped out in orange or yellow. (Although cobalt blue [...]
Socialism has come to the Hudson, but enough about the New York department of city planning. IKEA Brooklyn, the first-ever sighting of the sofas-and-Swedish-meatballs retailer in Gotham, opens Wednesday morning and lingonberry fever has already struck. Fans started waiting in line Monday morning, probably equally enticed by free POANG and EKTORP and my column this [...]« Previous Entries
