Zara is Balmain-borrowing with these limited edition '1000 Numbered Edition" Sandals now available at 45 Zara stores. They wanted to make these exclusive so they stamped a serial number on the bottom and put them in a specially designed box. The shoes are going for $229, which is kind of high for the store. I don't know if I would dish out that much money for some shoes that don't look that great. But the Zara groupies will probably be out there in full force.
Topshop, also known as one of the greatest stores ever, has a preview of their collaborations with Ashish, Ann Sofie Back, and Jonathan Saunders for spring 2010. Ashish has sweat pant designs with spikes and studs. The designer exclaims “Studs and spikes were a big part of my mainline collection this season, and it felt right to carry that through in some way for my range for Topshop. I love the contrast between soft sweatshirt fabric and metal spikes – it’s classic sportswear meets punk.” The collection is available February 3, 2010.
Ann Sofie Back has ripped shirts and dresses that were inspired by horror movies. “I looked at traditional American stereotypes such as horror movies. The sequined tops, dresses and sweats are slashed by Freddy Kruger himself.” The collection hits stores January 6, 2010.
And Jonathan Saunders was “inspired by sportswear and workwear, as well as the bold and graphic shapes of the Memphis movement. It’s perfect for urban city dewellers.” His collection is available January 20, 2010.

Tyra announced today that she will no longer grace our television screens with her dramatics and often controverstial talk show, The Tyra Show. "This will be the last season of The Tyra Show," she told People.com. “I’ve been loving having fun, coming into your living rooms, bedrooms, hair salons for the past 5 years.” I wonder who will discuss racism, women’s weight issues, and other dramatic model stuff that some of us care about and most of us don’t?

German model Julia Stegner is featured wearing armored leggings, strong shoulder piece, and patent leather boots. According to WWD, Mercedes Benz aimed to create a "highly modern visual language." The ad will be on posters, billboards, and banners for Berlin and New York Fashion Week. It's hot!

So Lady Gaga did a dope ass photoshoot with Kanye and a bunch of naked girls (of course) for her delux album. I think the shoot was hot. I love her fearlessness and the fact that this bi-curious chica will do absolutely anything. I'm still in love.
It's every male's favorite time of the year, a new pair of Jordan's coming out. And every female is cursed with the fact that we either have to buy them for Christmas for our boo thang, or go out to the midnight release of them like crazy people. Nevertheless, the Air Jordan 11 "Space Jams" will be out tomorrow, December 23, for your buying pleasure. They're $175 (adult price) and you can cop them at Footlocker, DTLR, Finish Line & wherever else you buy sneakers lol.
Yay one of my favorite designer's has his look book for spring/summer 2010 out. If you didn't see his runway show, it was fully football inspired. And his look book is pretty similar. I'm ready for the spring/summer now (especially after this horrendous snow storm this past weekend)!
Okay I know this is completely random and kind of like WTF but I love Iron Man, I don't care if it has nothing to do with fashion lol. The movie is set to release May 7, 2010 (yay!). Here are some of the movie posters and also the movie trailer. It looks good :)
