The Missing Nail: $12,000 For A Single Fake Nail Worn By Lady Gaga

Last I heard from Lady Gaga she was still recovering after her hip surgery and walked around in absurdly expensive, opulent chairs (try made of gold) and I think I spotted her at Kim Kardashian’s baby shower… But laying low has its advantages as one of Lady Gaga’s fake nails was just auctioned off for appx $12,000.

One. Nail. $12,000. Sure, the auctioneer also received a few pictures from the tour in which Lady Gaga wore the said acrylic nail and a ‘Born this Way’ tour shirt. The nail was allegedly recovered from stage by one of the crew members and then auctioned off on ArtFact.

To each job its benefits… Stage-diggers should be classified as such and receive praise for recovering artfacts from our living artists! They should invent fake skin so that everyone may get the chance (for the appropriate sum, biensur) to slip under Gaga’s or Beyonce’s skin or whoever else you admire…

Gisele Bunchen’s Vogue Italia June 2013 Cover Real?

Gisele Bundchen also on the cover of Vogue Italia’s June 2013 issue? After seeing what Mario Testino did with her for Vogue Brazil’s June 2013 pictorial, coming to terms with the lack of imagination and innovation in Vogue’s worldwide hqs was a heartbreaking issue to deal with.

Coincidentally, also a health and body issue, just like Vogue Brazil. Except this one is said to be photographed by Steven Meisel and in a slightly different angle than the all-physical Brazilian approach. Vogue Italia’s beauty is more about pampering and body-care.

However, if you take a good look at the cover, you’ll notice, just like the nice and passionate tFS people, that the masthead is a bit uneven and overall, a sloppy Photoshop work. No word about the new cover on any of Vogue Italia’s social channels, so what say you? Is this the real deal? Would you like it if it were? Would you rather leave it on the newsstand?

Angelina Jolie Back To Black: YSL Dress For World War Z Premiere

Some time ago, when I started this wonderful Frizz-adventure, my celebrity news seem to go round and round what Angelina Jolie did and what she wore. But back then, the entire Red Carpet thing was just… different. Angelina herself is different.

But somehow still the same. Angelina Jolie loves a good black outfit. And for the world premiere of her partner, Brad Pitt’s new film, World War Z, Angelina’s black dress was both stunning and familiar. Sure, everyone was waiting to see some sign of distress, something that would give away the amazing struggle she confessed to only days ago. But no, all we saw was the usual bright, wide smiling, lean Angelina who looks great in an elegant evening dress, her usual hair color, her usual winged makeup, everything looked normal.

Geek Chic: Super Mario Super Shoes

Geek chic and the little wonders of this exquisitely creative and delightful style keep drawing my attention and I will certainly not miss any opportunity to praise it. The Grand Anna Wintour deemed geek with a chic attribute, so who are we to disagree?

Super Mario Shoes. Literally! Super Mario handpainted high heels will definitely bring that funny, funky attitude to even the dullest of outfits. An all black, all gray or any other all- you’d wear, complete it with these shoes and the (fashion) game will always be yours! And for $153, you’ll get way more praise than you would with a pair of Louboutin for which you could very well pay 10 times this much! I’m charmed, how about you? Can you resist the magic spell of the Super Mario Shoes? (more on etsydotcom, the magicbeanbuyer shop)

Cara Delevingne New YSL Ad Campaign Glamorizing Grunge Junkies

I realize I already talked about this on two previous occasions and although I sincerely wish there wasn’t the case anymore, I have to talk about the same old triggers Hedi Slimane keeps on glamorizing in his work.

The Saint Laurent Paris Fall 2013 ad campaign was released and Cara Delevingne perfectly illustrates the spirit and the idea of the collection presented by Hedi on the catwalk that caused so much controversy a few months back. Grunge is back, yes, only with a significantly higher price tag. Couture democracy, sure, but at what cost? This is for the poor little rich kids who go through a rebellious stage in their neverending teenage life and want to spend all their monthly allowance on a dress and a pair of boots.

Helena Bonham Carter Covers Vogue! Because She’s In Her 40s!

(must be the worse pretext ever!) I was genuinely in awe when I discovered the July 2013 Vogue UK cover: Helena Bonham Carter is one of my favorite actresses for a long time and a clearly unique and outstanding personality, fashion and otherwise. I couldn’t be happier to discover her on a Vogue cover!

And since it’s such a unique moment in (style) time, I will do my best to procure this issue. Would make my first British Vogue to add to that ever growing stash I hold so dear to my heart and so precious to my eyes. I don’t even mind that the Mert and Marcus cover photo makes this Vogue UK look so much like your usual Vogue US, completed with (not so complimentary) Photoshop generous smoothing (which totally made lovely Helena look like Rachel Weisz) and Ralph Lauren outfit.

But why is Helena Bonham Carter on the cover of Vogue after all? Could it be because her movie alongside Johnny Depp isn’t doing so well, critics-wise? Or maybe because she has an Elizabeth Taylor movie scheduled for release soon? Either way, I’m really enjoying her stylish shoot.

Run On: Moby Vs. Johnny Cash

For a couple of weeks now, I’ve been Moby-lized. Although I used to listen to a lot of Moby in the late 90s, I stopped doing so in the 21st century. Something alienated me from Moby and his wavy tunes. Well, something happened and I’m back on Moby. I know, it sounds like I’m on some kind of treatment (wink).

But you know me, and you know I don’t do Friday Breaks unless I really feel it. And this week, my dahlings, I Run On all the way back to 1999 when Moby released this pretty track. And don’t you just love his philosophical videos? They always had a higher purpose, a deeper meaning beyond the visual support offered to the preexisting tune. Did you use to listen to Moby back then? How about now? (hit the jump for Moby’s version of Run On and Johnny Cash’s God’s Gonna Cut You Down)

Scarf It Like Holmes: The Many Ways To Wear Your Scarf Every Season!

I suppose I would’ve somehow found a way to tie everything to a book, should I have been a book fanatic. But I’m more of a movie fan. Emphasis on fan and not fanatic. Because in my perspective, a fanatic goes way further in his or her passion. A fan is merely an admirer who doesn’t miss a single good opportunity to enjoy his or her passion. Again, in my humble opinion.

Today I found a new way to tie together (pun intended) two of my biggest passions: movies and scarves. Elementary. Have you had the viewing pleasure? The original TV Series recently wrapped up its first series and although it runs in parallel with a similar themed series broadcasted in the UK (Sherlock), it enjoys tremendous success. I know why I like watching it and I think it’s refreshingly original, I would love to hear your reasons whether you like it or not.
