The Fashion Bomb News Breakdown: Grace Jones, Chaka Khan, Sister Sledge, and Gloria Gaynor Headline Etam Runway Show, Victoria’s Secret Launches Designer Collection, and Christian Louboutin Back in Court with YSL
By The Fashion Bomb Staff

• French lingerie label Etam had the best possible runway show ever with performances from disco divas Chaka KhanGloria GaynorSister SledgeThe Pointer SistersGrace Jones, and a bevy of pink and green-dyed poodles for good measure. (The Cut)

Victoria’s Secret, one of the most recognizable and widely-worn lingerie brands, released a high-end selection of bras and panties called the Victoria’s Secret Designer Collection, targeting those members of the bourgeoisie who won’t be seen in the same knickers as Ananda from around the way. Some pieces from the new collection graced the VS runway in November, masquerading as items from the main line. Think you’d like to shell out up to $158 for a bra? You can shop the designer collection now at Victoriassecret.com. (WWD)


• Take this first look at Doo-Ri Chung‘s 33-piece capsule collection for Macy’s Impulse, set to hit stores February 15th. (Racked)


• Andre 3000Adrien Brody, and hottie biscotti Gabriel Garcia Bernal are the new faces for Gillette Fusion Pro-Glide styler– or, the men’s version of lady shaver ads you see cascading down from the top of this page. (Glamazons)


Christian Louboutin headed back to court yesterday on the arm of Ms. Diane Von Furstenberg over the YSL red sole debacle. He presented his appeal, saying his signature, Chinese-red lacquered soles are iconic to his brand, and though YSL has been making monochromatic shoes since the 1970s, his trademark must be protected. The two could settle, but why do that when you can draw out these boring exciting proceedings? (WWD)


• Liu Wen snapped this shot of her and Joan Smalls backstage at Chanel haute couture yesterday. Peep the mohawk and Ms. Smalls’s Givenchy bomber jacket. (Liu Wen Facebook)



• The only sort of wine you should be spilling on your Chanel tweed blazer is Chateau Rauzan-Segla, straight from the Chanel winery you didn’t know existed. The famed design house is selling the 2009 vintage for a hefty $129, complete with a label designed by Mr. Karl Lagerfeld. The wine is available for pre-order, if you’re interested in drinking something other than Franzia.

    OMG!! Grace Jones’ legs have no right too still look that good!! LOL. Actually they all look pretty great saying not a one of them is under 50 (and some 60+).

    All I can say is when we keep it together, we keep it together!

  2. Crystal says:

    Holy smokes Grace Jones!

    *runs out and buys my man a Gillette Fusion pro glide*

  3. DarkEmpress says:

    I dont think the Louboutin vs YSL case is boring! The link doesnt let you see the strory unless you subscribe to WWD! Boo!

  4. sun.kissed says:

    Doo-Ri is looking good! I might have to check that out. LOL @ the men’s version of lady shaver ads you see cascading down from the top of this page. CL, have a seat already! That Chanel wine bottle is ugly. They could at least make people want to buy it just to look at it.

  5. Illchick says:

    Instead of selling a high-end collection of bras, VS needs to start carrying sizes for voluptuous ladies like myself. I would love to see more bricks and mortar stores that carry sizes above a DD

  6. kory says:

    yes honey!! (in my lawrence from real housewives of ATL voice) Grace Jones is looking GREAT! put these young girls out here to shame!

  7. Lady Luck says:

    Aw just checked out Doo-Ri and I am liking it a lot!

  8. Caribbelle says:

    Etam’s runway show looked like it was damn good time. My Grace is still fabulous. I’ll check out Doo Ri Chung, I can see myself wearing some of the pieces!

  9. Marsha D says:

    Wooo child I know that show was a gay boy’s dream come true! Only one missing was Donna Summer! lol! LOVE IT!

  10. Marsha D says:

    And look at Sister Sledge still lookin’ gooooooddddd, and Miss Grace “More Fiyah!” Jones I’m so sick with her gams right now!

  11. Gemini says:

    That show looked like fun!

  12. Miss Understood says:

    Claire, about these Gillette ads….

  13. Brittany says:

    Louboutin needs to get over himself.
    They could’ve put some better looking men in the Gillette ads. If you are going to take over my screen with an ad, then at least put some fine men in it!

  14. OMG…..huge smile popped up when i saw Andre…………………..I LOVE him…like seriously.

  15. B. says:

    Sorry to be one of those people that corrects mistakes, but that hottie biscotti (SO AGREE!) is named Gael Garcia Bernal. Not that Gabriel is far off. Oh my goodness, I love his movies so much. And Andre 3000 looks amazing, too.

  16. Samantha says:

    Agree with “Miss Understood”, kinda hard to read the site discreetly at work with a big ol pink banner making random appearances lol

  17. ok says:

    yeah, about these ads… you click the x to close them and they still don’t close, lolol… WTF??

  18. Mona L says:

    So you mean 3000 is gonna come out of hiding for some shavers ads but cant make appearances in music vids or award shows! :(

  19. Ej says:

    ughhh the pink banner!!
