Here’s a little something wonderful: Courtney Love commissioned wacky animator Michael Mouris to make a film documenting her style evolution. It begins with Karl Lagerfeld, that paragon of sanity, staging a fashion intervention: “You’re drowning in the kook… Your lungs are filling with chiffon and lace and all that glitter, bead nonsense. You must come up for air before you die.” Later, Love wonders (and yes, in her world, this is a joke), “Why can’t I be dignified like Chris Martin from Coldplay?”
André Leon Talley, Love’s band mates, a “caramel” Birkin bag, a handful of Hole songs, a bowl of ramen, a “skinny little bitch” scarfing cake, and Michael Stipe (shouting some of his own “Losing My Religion” lyrics) all make appearances. It’s certainly goofy, but it’s also fun. Just watch it.

Today at Flavorpill, we chuckled over this roundup of the 50 most depressed Easter bunnies. We really enjoyed reading Elizabeth “Alien Baby” Spiers’ story about her adoption and subsequent DNA testing. We wanted someone to build us a secret passageway to Narnia. We lusted after these Coca-Cola Light bottles featuring Karl Lagerfeld’s svelte silhouette. We opened the letter that Lil Wayne sent us from the big house. We were excited to hear that Dirty Dancing is now screening in its entirety on YouTube through April 14th (we’ve been needing to rewatch it ever since Serena recommended it to Jenny on Gossip Girl a few episodes ago).

As over-the-top as Justin Dior Combs’ Sweet Sixteen, we’ve rounded up some of the most outrageous fashion show productions that will make you forget the word “recession” ever existed.… Read More
Today at Flavorpill, we enjoyed the pop culture mash-up of a Mike Meyer’s painting of Colonel Sanders. We wondered if Karl Lagerfeld’s puffy new bags are some sort of commentary on obesity. We tried to tell the difference between Arial and Helvetica. And failed miserably. We learned what happens when a 28-year-old guy makes a profile of a hot girl on a free dating site: Hilarity ensues. We were excited for a new LCD Soundsystem track and tour. We got the story behind Sophie Blackhall’s Craigslist Missed Connection illustrations. And finally, we found out that one of our favorite graphic designer’s Chip Kidd has a band called Artbreak. Click through to watch them perform.… Read More
British fashion photographer Miles Aldridge credits luck for the reason he became a photographer. When he pitched photos of his girlfriend to help her become a model for British Vogue, the magazine’s editors ended up preferring his talent to her look. That was the mid-1990s, and since then, Aldridge’s career has skyrocketed. Working for Vogue Italia, Numero, Paradis, and The New York Times Magazine, he has established himself as an inventive artist with an acute sense of color and impeccable eye for style.
