American Music Awards 2009

Quote of the Day

“I prefer shoes that undress to shoes that dress. A successful shoe is a shoe that accentuates nudity. The woman remains entirely nude when she wears those shoes. The shoe becomes the privilege of nudity ... If you are very chic you might not need an extra drop of chicness, so you go for the sexy side and buy my shoes because they are ... tarty. We get very smart women coming in and buying a pair to feel a little more sluttish. And then, thank God, we also get the hookers coming in the store, who buy my shoes because they are superchic. You see, whatever you have, if you add a drop of the opposite, then it just becomes a little more sexy.”
- Christian Louboutin to the Times Online.

People are talking about...

Adam Lambert's performance at the American Music Awards last night.

The American Idol Season 8 runner-up caused a stir when he included crotch-grabbing, a simulated oral-sex scene, and made out with another guy.

According to ABC, over 1500 people have called to complain about the performance.

Lambert's response?

"You know honestly, if I offended some people… it's apples and oranges. I'm not an artist that does things for every single person. I believe in artistic freedom and expression, I believe in honoring the lyrics of a song, and those lyrics aren't really for everybody either.

"There's a big double standard, female pop artists have been doing things provocative like that for years, and the fact that I'm a male, and I'll be edited and discriminated against could be a problem.

"People are scared and it's really sad, I just wish people could open their minds up and enjoy things, it's all for a laugh, it's really not that big of a deal."

Stella McCartney going for round two at the Gap

Stella McCartney’s collection for GapKids was so popular (Moms were even trying to buy some items for themselves), that the designer will be producing a spring collection which will hit stores in March.

The designer originally signed on for one season, which debuted earlier this month. Best sellers included the Miller naval jacket, named after McCartney’ eldest song, Miller Alasdhair James Willis.

Alicia Keys is launching a jewelry collection

Alicia Keys is dipping her toes into the design pool.

But before you start groaning about yet ANOTHER celebrity trying to get into fashion, give Keys a chance. Her venture actually looks quite promising.

The 12-time Grammy Award-winning songstress is launching a jewelry collection with Canadian jewelry designer Gisèle Theriault.

The collection, called The Barber's Daughter, will be introduced at a temporary shop at Collette Blanchard Gallery on 26 Clinton Street in Lower Manhattan. The store will open only on Monday and Tuesday to generate buzz for the brand’s fall 2010 launch.

The Barber's Daughter is comprised of sterling silver and gemstone pieces, each inscribed with poetry and prayers of Masaru Emoto, the author of “The Hidden Messages in the Water.” The line will retail from $85 to $2,500 and will also be sold on

Keys apparently met Theriault through her bandmembers, who were buying Theriault's pieces backstage at Keys' shows. Having always been interested in designing accessories, Keys was intrigued.

“I fell in love with the individuality of the pieces, but more than that, the words that were written on them really resonated with the songwriter in me,” said Keys. “I knew at that moment for the first time, that through a whole other medium I would be able to spread inspiration and that’s what got me started.”

Her mission is to “give people beautiful, unique pieces with messages that ignite them to find the best within.”

The name of the line was inspired by Theriault’s childhood in the small town of Cape Breton, Nova Scotia.

“A name meant nothing,” said Theriault. “Whose child you were was everything.”

On her partnership with Keys, Theriault said, “When it comes to creating, whatever the medium, around issues of the heart and living a life that aims to give back, we found a beautiful harmony with each other.”

Check out some of the pieces below.

What do you think of the collection?

Michelle Tratchenberg inks a deal with Coach

Gossip Girl's Michelle Trachtenberg has just landed a deal with Coach to design a jewelry collection for their youthful and spirited Poppy line.

Trachteberg will apply her tough-girl meets sugary-sweet vibe to design the collection.

The costume jewelry line will hit stores this spring, and will be filled with colourful crystals, faux pearls, and intricate hardware.

I wonder how this will turn out!

Do you think Michelle Trachtenberg is fit for the job? Or does this collaboration seem kind of random?

Leighton Meester attends American Eagle flagship opening

Last night, Leighton Meester attended the grand opening party for the American Eagle Outfitters flagship store in Times Square, New York City.

The Gossip Girl-star turned singer wore a low-cut leather mini with a black bandeau underneath. She later did a special four-song performance wearing another interesting getup: beige leggings with splashes of blues, purples, oranges and browns, the same bandeau bra, and a vest. Her messy tresses were pulled up into a bun (and magically, bangs appeared). Check out a clip from her performance below.

The AE flagship store will feature New York-exclusive product, including a denim library featuring more than 20,000 pairs of jeans, and an aerie bra conservatory featuring 7,500 bras. It will also include outerwear in faux fur and leather, sequin-embellished tops, and expanded footwear selection, graphic t-shirts designed by New York graffiti artists, underwear with graphics of New York neighbourhoods, and lingerie in sheer fabrics, exotic prints and lace.

Not too sure I liked either look on Leighton, but her makeup was definitely better for her performance.

Video Premiere: Beyonce feat. Lady Gaga - Video Phone (Extended Mix)

Here's the just-released video of Beyonce's "Video Phone" featuring Lady Gaga!

Is it just me, or did Beyonce look a LOT like Rihanna in this video? And that pin-up/ghetto look made her look a bit like Lil' Mama.

It was definitely nice to see a different side of Gaga though!

Behind the scenes of Lady Gaga's Vogue shoot

Here's a behind-the-scenes video of the Lady Gaga spread in this month's Vogue.

The clip features Vogue's Grace Coddington and photographer Annie Lebovitz, and of course, Ms. Gaga.

My favourite part? The fact that Gaga came into the shoot wearing nothing but a "rubber" trenchcoat.

Daphne Guinness wears the Alexander McQueen armadillo boot

Last night, fashion icon Daphne Guinness, sported the Alexander McQueen armadillo boot to a party in honour of Francois Nars' new book and the 15th Anniversary of Nars.

The boots stand at ten-inches high, and have caused a frenzy in the fashion world after they premiered at McQueen's Spring 2010 show, and later in Lady Gaga's "Bad Romance" video.

Apparently, shoe-loving women have been phoning McQueen to purchase these "alien" booties.

"We've had lots of people showing great interest in the show shoes," said a McQueen spokesperson, who also reported that some of the callers are looking to buy them as "art pieces."

The McQueen camp is contemplating on auctioning off the sample shoes for charity.

Guinness, is known for her extravagant shoe collection, so it's no surprise that she's wearing them.

Would you wear these shoes? Or are they simply too ridiculous?

The Gossip Girl actress-turned singer strips down to some racy lingerie, and even spreads her legs for the shoot.

Quote of the Day

"Lindsay Lohan's collaboration was a disaster. I am furious but I can't do anything about it…. [My vision] is in the process of losing its soul…That happens to a lot of designers. We were the creators and patrons, responsible for the creation and destiny of our houses. But when we gave up our houses, we gave up our souls."

Quote of the Day

"It took me years to work out what was so special about Vuitton. But when you go to the workshops outside Paris and see how everything is crafted, it is pretty impressive. Added to that, it’s easily identifiable and I guess human instinct is to want to be part of an exclusive club that’s also highly recognisable."
- Marc Jacobs to the London Times.

Leighton Meester on the cover of Glamour U.K.

Gossip Girl's Leighton Meester covers Glamour U.K. magazine this month, looking very Sophia Loren. The spread was shot by Robert Erdmann.

In the interview, she talks about love, family and how she keeps her excellent physique.

On falling in love: "I always resist falling in love. My problem is, I lose interest. I have a very different concept of what love is, and it changes. 'Romantic' is associated with sex, and sex is always more steamy in the beginning. Every time I've fallen in love, it's just momentary."

On her ex boyfriends: "I've hated every boyfriend I've had...I don't want to have a boyfriend unless I want to be with him forever. If I don't see an end, that's nice. Because I always see an end."

On her parents: "No, [my parents] didn't live a life of crime while I was a kid. We had big Thanksgiving dinners, with all of us at a table. I mean, how normal can you get?"

On keeping her shape: "It's probably from walking in high heels."

On her critics: "I'm proud of the work that I've done. I don't care what people label me as. If they want to say I'm an actress, and I should never sing, that's fine. If they know me for my music because they don't watch my show or my movies, that's fine too. I'm doing waht I want to with my life. I just"
