Christian Louboutin Beaute’, Nadège Vanhee-Cybulski , Andrej Pejic’s and Pirelli models dress in Latex

How ‘bout a little round-up of fashion doings this time around? Included below are tidbits about Christian Louboutin Beaute’, Nadège Vanhee-Cybulski coming to Hermès, Andrej Pejic’s surgery and the 2015 Pirelli girls getting their latex on.

Christian Louboutin Beaute’ presents as glossy, chip-resistant red nail lacquer (matching that color that makes the company’s shoes so famous) as the first offering from their new accessories line. As it appeared in Vogue’s August issue and as Louboutin himself claims the polish is his way of  “giving back to nails what the shoe took many years ago.”Christian Louboutin Beaute’

Rouge Louboutin comes in a glass bottle with a “high heel” lid, with more than a hint of packaging inspiration from the Crazy Horse cabaret in Paris. In September thirty new polishes will be upon us.

Designer Nadège Vanhee-Cybulski has replaced Christophe Lemaire as creative designer for Hermès. Having worked for Céline and The Row, Vanhee-Cybulski will begin her new position in earnest in October after the first week of October and Paris Fashion Week (Lemaire is presenting his last collection for Hermès there.)

Model Andrej Pejic has had sex reassignment surgery. The surgery took place in the the beginning of the year. Proud in her “gender non-conforming career” Pejic felt the surgery a logical step in making him “more comfortable than ever”.

Pejic was the first male model to put himself ‘out front’ in women’s underwear campaign and modeled infamously as Jean Paul Gaultier’s couture ‘bride.’andrej_pejic_420-420x0

Someday I hope to be cool enough to get my hands on one, but for now I have to content myself (as most of us do) with pictures off the net and reports far afield of the infamous yearly Pirelli calendar. The models for this years’ ‘issue’ have been announced…and just wait to you hear what they are wearing!

Photographed by Steven Meisel and styled by Carine Roitfeld, this year it seems the bold and beautiful women are sporting quite a bit of…latex.

Adriana Lima, Isabeli Fontana, Joan Smalls, and BBW model Candice Huffine, plus a score of others are wielding whips and wearing latex bustiers. It seems fetish fashion is driving the Perelli ethos this year.

And latex fashion and fetish fun drives the Von Gutenberg attitude as well…as do tattoos in our issue number 8, see it here: AppleAndroid: Amazon Kindle Print
