At the Givenchy Womenswear show during Paris Fashion Week: Look, there’s Kimye, and I hate myself for saying this, but gosh doesn’t Kim look swell with that blonde hair? Almost, gulp, CHIC; Lily Collins is always fab, I love her Bambi tee and dark lip; and Isabelle Huppert and Rossy de Palma make the scene, both looking absolutely gorgeous.

When the party’s over, huh? JC Chasez is photographed at LAX as he returns to his regular life as a dork. Side note: Have you ever noticed that on some people Givenchy just looks like Ed Hardy? That top just screams JERSEY to me. Designer Richard Tisci should screen every potential buyer of his clothes; Melenia Trump and son Barron arrive at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in New York, and I know this is going to come out wrong, but OMG, PLEASE LET HIM BE A BIG QUEEN, PLEASE LET HIM GROW UP TO BE A BIG DRAG QUEEN WHO DRIVES HIS FATHER CRAAAAAAAAZY, PLEASE LET HIM OPEN A CHAIN OF TRUMP GAY SEX CLUBS, OMG PLEEEEASE; Ethan Hawke and Selena Gomez walk the red carpet for their new movie Getaway in Westwood; and South Korean rapper, singer, songwriter, dancer, producer, DJ, model, muse, spokesperson and possibly the most stylish person on the planet G-Dragon arrives in LA for the big K-Pop conference KCON (where he apparently KILLED IT onstage with Missy Elliot).

Givenchy’s head designer, Ricardo Tisci, who famously “upholstered” a pregnant Kim Kardashian for this year’s Met Ball, says the inspiration for his latest collection, called “Favelas 74″ (1974 is Tisci’s birth year), is from Latin culture. “Men in favelas are more natural and more confident about their sexuality. They are not scared to mix and match clothing. They represent sensuality, street, and elegance – what I recognize as elegance. I love the fact that they play with opposite things like flowers (which represent peace and serenity) and camouflage (which represents the army), but all interpreted in a very colorful and positive way,” says Tisci. The question is where in ANY culture might one wear these suit jackets, tank tops (leggings?) and basketball shorts layered with old-school technology of reel-to-reel tape decks and horizontal stripes printed with targets, arrows, and numbers? A fashion show seems to be the only logical answer. That and Yeezus! I’d be willing to bet we’ll see the new full-tilt “Favela” on Tisci’s buddy Kanye, at some point too.
From Fucking Young!: “Riccardo Tisci unveils Givenchy’s Pre-Fall 2013 bag collection. The line, that includes wallets, messenger bags, totes, and backpacks, features a plethora of patterns, textures and prints such as stars and stripes and this season’s dog, the doberman.” No word on the prices, but I’m pretty sure I need ALL OF THEM.
That damned Givenchy nose ring. Sure, when you first see it you think “Oh! Isn’t that marvelous? Like a very chic bull!” And of course no trend should be practical – trends by definition are pointless and senseless and slightly idiotic – but this goes beyond that. I mean LOOK AT IT. You can’t drink a cocktail, do a bump, suck a dick, eat a chicken wing – NOTHING. I imagine by the end of every night it’s been partially ripped out and there are pubic hairs tangled in it and dried blood and sticky stuff all over it. It’s gonna get stuck on your sweater as you take it off, it’s gonna get tangled up in some queen’s wig, some snatchy bitch is gonna rip it out of your nose for giving her the side-eye AND THEN WHERE WILL YOU BE?
