In the words of David Bowie, ‘Ahhhh, fashion!’.

While we all sit here in some form of clothing, considered fashionable or otherwise, our garments will all have been designed by someone.

And though fashion designers have given us many, many great things – socks, pants, those tiny pockets above the normal pocket on jeans – they also grace the world with some more questionable items.

I get it, inspiration sometimes runs dry, you’re stressing about coming up with the next big thing and your mojo just isn’t flowing. You take a break, need some time to rest your weary head, so you whack on your favourite old sitcom, throw yourself down on the sofa and try not to worry about it.

And what happens? Inspiration strikes, your muse makes a surprise visit and a lightbulb appears above your head. No one knows when it’s going to hit, but when it does, grab your pen and make sure you get it down.

And so we come to the latest piece of winter outerwear from Balenciaga.

This guy is going to set you back a cool $9,000 (or £6985.49 according to Barneys).

Described as an ‘oversized parka’, the coat features a variety of colours and no less than seven layers. While you might be thinking ‘great, so that’s seven for the price of one (very expensive) coat’, the various layers are, alas, not detachable.

Are they making seven kinda average coats look like one big average one? I’ll let you be the judge.

It’s proving quite popular though, as at the time of writing there’s only one left on their site, so you gotta be quick if you want one.

However, if you miss out, or simply don’t have thousands of pounds at your disposable to spend on a massive coat, I reckon this look could be easily replicated.

Much like our friend Joey Tribbiani, just raid other people’s wardrobes until you find your desired amount of layers, and rock it.

The desired look can be achieved for a fraction of the cost. A quick whip round your work mates might provide you with all you need.

As all fashionistas, like the guy in the photo, know – the coat doesn’t make the look. You have to pair it with something killer.

Well fear not, Balenciaga have you covered again. And though it’s not one shoe that looks like seven layers of shoes, it is a hybrid of a classic platform shoe with the even more classic croc.

A pair of these clunky but irresistible beauties will set you back £645, which is nothing compared to the coat, but will set it off perfectly I reckon.

According to Balenciaga:

Balenciaga casts the classic Croc slipper in a punk-ish new light for SS18.

In a whimsical bubblegum-pink hue, the front is decorated with a selection of irreverent pop-culture charms including logo plaques, avocados, flags, and pug faces to create an effect like a fridge of souvenir magnets.

Take advantage of the high platform sole to lift an ankle-skimming dress.

Thanks Balenciaga, I think I will. Also, let me know if you’re going to do other colours. Asking for a friend.

Dylan Sprouse Gave Girlfriend Barbara Palvin A Standing Ovation At Victoria’s Secret Show

For many models walking in the illustrious and glamorous Victoria’s Secret Show is a lifetime ambition.

Supermodels including Tyra Banks, Heidi Klum, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Alessandra Ambrosio have all walked in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show since it started in 1995.

This year 25-year-old Hungarian model Barbara Palvin was one of them taking to the runway with style which left the audience stunned.

As the crowd filled with fans watched on, Palvin’s boyfriend Dylan Sprouse decided to show his girl some support standing up, putting his hand on his heart and cheering her on.

In a video taken by another attendee which has since gone viral, the actor can be seen getting out of his seat when Palvin arrived at the catwalk and looking at her with love as she strut her stuff.

You can check out the footage here:

While that is enough to probably win Sprouse boyfriend of the year, he also showed his sweet side after the show when he brought Palvin some yummy snacks.

Leading up to the show Palvin had to follow a strict diet in preparation meaning as soon as her work was done she would be ready to eat something greasy and tasty.

Making sure she got it, Sprouse arrived with a bag full of cheeseburgers from Shake Shack which Palvin clearly appreciated saying ‘ouhh yeah baby’ on her Instagram.

Sprouse, who has been inseparable from Palvin since they started dating back in July this year, planned on being his girl’s biggest cheerleader at the show as he told E! News on Halloween.

He said:

I will be cheering her on very loudly, annoying her, embarrassing her!

You know what, it’s hard to see like from these interviews and I guess just from the Instagram posts and stuff how hard she’s really worked to do this.

So I think the best part for me is just knowing that like after all of that, it really paid off. So I’m excited to see the coalescence of all that work.

Now where can I get myself a guy just like sweet Sprouse?

The show was also an emotional one for 37-year-old model Adriana Lima who, after being a Victoria’s Secret Angel for the last 19 years, made her last appearance on that catwalk.

As she walked the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show catwalk for the last time, Lima broke down in tears bidding her farewell.

Taking to her Instagram before the show, Lima shared an emotional tribute to Victoria’s Secret by posting a montage of her career highlights.

She wrote:

Dear Victoria, Thank you for showing me the world, sharing your secrets, and most importantly not just giving me wings but teaching me to fly. And all the [love] to the best fans in the [world]! Love, Adriana

Receiving nearly 8 million views at time of writing (November 10), fans have shown the video their support filling the comments with love.

Having walked a total of 18 shows, missing one year when she was pregnant, Lima really has had an incredible career with the brand.

It’s 2018, so why not go out wearing a beautiful set of penis earrings complete with a matching necklace?

Well, if it sounds right up your street, French fashion house and world-class designer Yves Saint Laurent, has got the jewellery set for you.

The company just launched a matching set featuring detailed penises made from patinated golden brass, which dangle from a chain.

For an added touch of class, the penises have ‘Saint Laurent Paris’ engraved on the back.

To be honest, considering the jewellery set is genitalia-themed, it’s both quite delicate and pretty, but unfortunately, it comes at a cost.

If you fancy picking up the earrings, it will set you back £215 while the necklace costs a hefty £520.

This means, the complete set overall costs a whopping £735 – which is a lot to pay to have mini penises dangling from your ears and neck!

But hey, they are made from 100 per cent brass don’t you know!

The jewellery received quite the mixed reaction online as many didn’t know what to make of the unusual design.

One person commented:

IDK what’s worse, the person wearing brass penis earrings or the fact that they are charging you 345 dollars for the luxury of wearing penis earrings…. [sic]

One woman was unimpressed by the new design tweeting:

Why is YSL designing penis jewelry, are running out of ideas. I think this is a new low for them. Just my opinion!!! [sic]

Another user was simply taken aback writing:

YSL really ?? Penis necklaces… Earrings?!! [sic]

One fashion fan meanwhile was desperate to get her hands on them:

Where do i get the ysl penis earrings and necklace i WANT RHEM [sic]

IF you did want the items, unfortunately it looks like you may have missed your chance, as according to the Yves Saint Laurent website the items are sold out.

And it doesn’t look like they’re coming back either being currently listed as ‘not available’. Still, you may be able to find them in a store but I’d hurry as they’re clearly very popular!

If you did manage to pick up the set and fancy making all of your outfit of the day genitalia themed, well we can point you in the direction of another item.

Last month, luxury fashion house Fendi released a ‘touch of fur shawl’ which, and I am not exaggerating here, looks like a vagina.

No, seriously, check it out:

touch of fur shawlFendi

For just £750 you can look like a lovely set of labia complete of course with pubic hair, which I’m sure many trendsetters will tell you is totally worth the money.

Made from 100 per cent fox fur, 40 per cent wool and 60 per cent silk, Fendi describes the item as follows:

Fendi are famous for their delicate foulards and outfit accenting scarves. Expect to see delicately monogrammed print work and rich colourways.

Crafted from fox fur and a silk-wool blend, this Touch Of Fur shawl features a fur trim and a signature FF motif design.

Made in Italy.

The price tag did include VAT so I suppose you could say you bagged yourself a bargain.

Basketball Fan Caught Staring At Emily Ratajkowski By Young Son

Emily Ratajkowski attending a basketball game was always going to set pulses racing.

The 27-year old model was clad in high rise jeans, no bra and a teeny-tiny white crop top as she posed for pictures at The Staples Centre in Los Angeles; impressively toned abs on full display.

Looking immaculately stylish and poised as ever in red snake-skin boots, Emily definitely added a little extra glamour to the game between the LA Lakers and the Minnesota Timberwolves. It turned out to be a close game, with the Lakers eventually winning 114-110.

And Emily’s appearance certainly went appreciated by one fan, who was apparently caught having a sneaky look at the famous fashionista’s bottom by his young son.

A post shared by Emily Ratajkowski (@emrata) on

Photographs showed the basketball fan turning round in his seat to get a closer look at the runway model; his eye-line perfectly level with her derrière.

As he continues to admire DKNY model Emily’s use of jeans, the young boy beside him can be seen grinning widely; catching his star-struck dad red handed.

The images have gone viral, with many people being able to relate all too well to the plight of this distracted basketball fan. Some even admired his boldness during what was a ‘once in a lifetime opportunity’.

One person declared:

Amen, I’d stare in front of the wife and the in laws given that chance. [sic]

Another agreed:

Its a once in a lifetime opportunity you have to risk it all. [sic]

Other photos showed Emily munching on M&Ms and popcorn beside a friend as she enjoyed the game.

After she uploaded pics of herself on Instagram, some fans expressed genuine concern she would distract the players with her beauty, but luckily all eyes appeared to be on the game. Phew!

Emily has recently spoken out about her secret February wedding to boyfriend, Sebastian Bear-McClard, telling Busy Tonight:

We knew each other for a long time before and he likes to joke like, ‘Yeah, everyone thinks we got married quickly but you vetted me for two years’.

It was secret for four hours. Weddings are amazing, I want to party, I want to celebrate love and relationships, but this was just for us and it was very nice.

You know, ultimately marriage is like business. Marriage is really to me what you want to take from it, because the history of it is like a joke.

LeBron James may well have led his team to victory, but it turned out to be Emily Ratajkowski and her keen admirer who stole the show in the end.
