Crocs Death Hoax: How Fashion Kills Comfort

For those who claimed that fashion was lacking sensitivity or that it was not anchored in the actual present times, here’s a piece of news that could rock your world more than Cosmo’s mind-blowing 28 positions that never work in real life:

Fashion’s war against Crocs counts 180 casualties as of this summer, with 75 to 100 Crocs stores closing in an effort to save $4Million this year and $10Million next year. The assiduous campaign to annihilate the casual footwear brand off the face of the (fashion) Earth started soon after the company’s launch in 2002. Although the footwear was downright revolutionary (with its ‘Croslite’ comfy, light and odor-resistant material), and fairly successful ( more than 200 million pairs sold worldwide), fashion people declared a cold, merciless war against the plastic clogs!

Scarlett Johansson Gets New Short Haircut, Turns Into Elsa Pataky!

Latest Sci Fi to win the box-office is Lucy. A perfectly minded movie by one of Europe’s most beloved directors, Luc Besson (also responsible for movies like The 5th Element or Taken) starring one of Hollywood’s most beloved actresses, Scarlett Johansson (and yes, this is the perfect excuse to tell you that ‘Lucy’ is worth going to the cinema for).

As previously discussed, Scarlett is now happily engaged and expecting, so changing her hair may just be one of those pregnant mood changes. Or not. While the world was so far used to seeing lovely Scarlett showing off perfect old-school glamour skills, this sudden switch to a new hipster aura might be difficult to digest (add to that her neverending pregnancy and you’ve got yourself lacking the glam action shero everyone was so fond of lately).

Anorexia & Models: Jamie Bochert

Having so much fun with the Dita von Teese story the other day led to a natural conclusion: writing on photos can be meaningful and it’s also the easiest way to get a message across. Who even reads over 300 words – the average count for a Stylefrizz story? (for those who actually do take that time, a sincere and warm thank you! Everything is written from the heart!)

So let’s do more of photo-wisdom, the new generation for the good ol’ ‘Wisdom Without Moderation’! Fashion people have so many intriguing, seldom fascinating opinions about so many things! Take Jamie Bochert for instance! The 31year-old American model was on and off the fashion scene for over 12 years. She’s famous for her waify frame and androgynous looks. Here’s what she said in a recent interview:

Mothers, Would You Buy Maternity Lingerie From Dita Von Teese?

Famous people are either (1) striving for fresh design ideas or simply (2) believe they can sell anything as long as it has their ‘fame’ label on it!

The latest example to date is Dita Von Teese! The 41 year-old entertainer has made a name for herself on the burlesque scene, performing around the world and taking the old-school glamour to a new height of popularity and appreciation. But do you know that Dita’s first workplace was in a lingerie boutique? Her passion for undergarments (corsets, lace and flirty items) pushed her further into the industry when she launched her own lingerie range with Wonderbra.
