Karl Lagerfeld thinks that LVMH should invest in a Nicolas Ghesiquère line, telling Reuters: "Perhaps Nicolas wants to have his own label, which is not a bad idea. And it would not be a bad idea if somebody such as Bernard Arnault would invest in a new label because there are so many old labels (within the LVMH group)." [via Fashionista, image via Daily Beast]
This shoot in French Glamour combines many things we love, including but not limited to: Margot Tenenbaum as inspiration, an approximation of Margot Tenenbaum's blasé-and-vaguely-scornful stare, and animals. [via Fashion Gone Rogue]

Taschen is releasing a new book cataloging the best of industrial designer Marc Newsom's work with G-Star over the years. From the looks of the photographs (including the one of the jacket above), the book will leave us wishing we had a new wardrobe. [via Press Release]

Welcome to You Should Check Out..., a new weekly blog in which Chris Black of Words For Young Men and Done to Death Projects tells you about something or someone he really likes and that he thinks you'll like too. Follow him on Twitter at @donetodeath.
ESP is a Los Angeles based classically trained trio composed of brother/sister Aska and Seiya Matsumiya and friend Bobby Evans. (Aska was featured in Paper's 25th anniversary issue in 2009.) They describe their music as "synesthetic, synth-laden dreamscapes, literally popping with hypercolored visuals, this is ESP, the sights, sounds and sensory overload of the West Coast cosmos." They have released two slightly trippy, excellent EPs and a split 10" with UFO2012 on OHWOW . The crew recently completed a big tour of Japan and sent me photos of the madness to share with the masses.

Don't worry. Not all election GIFs.
Let's begin with the guy who won... [IntrepidGirlBlogger]
This is actually a GIF commenting on Obama's remarks about Gangnam
Style earlier this week. It has nothing to do with the election. [PixelFucks]
Also, nothing to do with the election. [OnlyLOLGIFs]

The weirdest, best part of this weekend's Anne Hathaway-hosted SNL was definitely this short about Mokiki, a zombified medical experiment who seduces women with his dancing, his Tevas and his radioactive vomit. [Hulu]
Mary Kate Olsen is 26 and her boyfriend Olivier Sarkozy is 42, and while that certainly doesn't come close to hitting Creep Level Hutchinson on the Barf Index, this picture of them canoodling at a Knicks game over the weekend still makes us feel real weird. [Dlisted]

Hey, it's that girl from the cover of PAPER's summer music issue!) Azealia Banks pops-out of this short, but hyper-animated clip for "Atlantis" from her Fantasea mixtape. The song was produced by O/W/W/W/L/S and the video directed by French artist Fafi -- wife of the late, great DJ/producer Mehdi. Azealia's colorful world is packed with the usual underwater suspects as well as some purple, rotating crystals and flying euros with alternating "Prey" vs. "Pray" graphics shooting over a volcano.
Karl Lagerfeld did a sketch of President Obama as a pastry chef holding his White House cake for German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung. The sketch is done with Shu Uemura makeup and is 100% confusing. [via Fashionista]
Anne Hathaway revealed in the new issue of Vogue that for her role as Fantine in Les Mis, she went on a "near-starvation" diet and was down to eating two squares of dried oatmeal paste a day by the end. File this under: things no one should ever have to do for any job. [via Fashionista]
The eBay Holiday Collective has arrived at the eBay Fashion Vault! You can snag items made by Chris Benz, Billy Reid, Jonathan Adler and more, all for under $100! We've seen the collection and trust us, you'll want to snag some of this stuff while it's still available. [via Press Release]
Victoria's Secret officially apologized for this sexy, Native American-inspired outfit and will remove it from the broadcast of the show. Karlie Kloss (who was wearing the outfit) supported their decision, Tweeting: "I am deeply sorry if what I wore during the VS Show offended anyone. I support VS's decision to remove the outfit from the broadcast." [The Cut]
Missing the old days of Yves Saint Laurent, before it ditched the "Yves" and before it became the center of an awkward fashion critics vs. Saint Laurent kerfuffle? Resurrection and 1stdibs.com are selling lots of old YSL pieces, made by the master himself. The sale starts on November 21st, so prepare your credit cards. [via Press Release]

While at this summer's Tales of the Cocktail, the annual hedonistic booze convention in New Orleans, Jena Ellenwood attended a tasting of George Dickel Tennessee whiskey. "They were pouring cocktails through smoked wood chips--delicious but impractical--serving them on one giant rock," recalls the bar mistress of Sparrow Tavern, Astoria's pre-eminent tippling joint. The memory of the drink stayed with her, and for Sparrow's fall cocktail menu, Ellenwood was determined to re-create "that flavor and aroma combo. I tried four bourbons before I realized Buffalo Trace would be ideal -- smooth, not too sweet, easily blended, and enough body for a good Manhattan." Now, before devouring the likes of pulled pork tacos and one of the city's best burgers, patrons can unwind with Ellenwood's warming Smokey Buffalo Manhattan, layered with sweet vermouth, whiskey barrel-aged bitters, and a hint of hickory-flavored liquid smoke. "The brandied cherries," she points out, "are my own addiction."
2 oz. Buffalo Trace bourbon
2 dashes Fee Brothers whiskey barrel-aged bitters
2 drops hickory flavored liquid smoke (available via Amazon.com)
Splash sweet vermouth
Combine ingredients in a mixing glass with ice. Stir gently and pour strained mixture over brandy-soaked cherry in a chilled cocktail glass.
The Heiress, now playing at The Walter Kerr Theatre, has an all-star cast plucked from super-successful period pieces from the screen, both big and small (Downton Abbey, The Help), but can they revive this stodgy script and make it relevant to todays audiences? Find out in our full review!
What do the only good Mormon, the fattest gay, the last nurse to make house calls, and the brattiest teenage girl in the world have in common? They share the stage in The Whale now playing at Playwrights Horizons Peter Jay Sharp Theater. Charlie is set on eating himself to death in the wake of his lover's demise, but before he goes he has to wrap up a few loose ends. Is it worth the weight? Watch the full review to find out!
An ancient messenger describes one gruesome death after another, then a number of reporters from the future sum up the end-game of every hot-button issue from the recent election. Obskene takes it's name from the greek term for "off-stage", but does it belong on one?

Welcome to the fourth edition of our ongoing guide to Art Basel Miami Beach (check out editions I, II and III HERE, HERE and HERE respectively). Let's get started:
Art and hip-hop collide on December 5th at the Miami Beach Convention Center. While half of the building hosts the VIP opening of Art Basel Miami Beach 2012, the other half booked a mega rap concert starring Rick Ross, Meek Mill, Wale and Machine Gun Kelly. We're tempted to go to both, but expect total gridlock in South Beach. Tickets are available for this Maybach Music Group concert HERE. We also hear that Rakim from the '80s rap group Eric B & Rakim is playing at The Stage (170 NE 38th Street, Miami) on Friday, December 7th.
Cool Miami gallery Locust Projects (3852 North Miami Avenue, Miami) is presenting a big installation by Chicago artist Theaster Gates called "Soul Manufacturing Corporation" that will be up from December 3 - 8 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. For the work, Gates plans to "create a factory consisting of four pavilions occupied by skilled makers who will produce 'things' throughout the week." At the same time, a yoga instructor, a DJ and a reader will entertain the "makers" and the viewers. Locust Projects will be celebrating their 15th anniversary in 2013.
The Fountain Art Fair Miami (2505 North Miami Avenue. Miami) is back for their seventh go-round with over 35 exhibitors and a "visual display of installation heavy artworks" in a 25,000-square-foot warehouse. Fountain is always a blast with lots of parties and hip art, plus this year they're hosting a spin-off of Brooklyn's Tiki Disco party on Saturday night.
California artist Dickson Schneider is on Kickstarter with a cool idea to give away art. He wants to raise $800 to build a portable 'Free Art Cart' to push through the streets of Miami and hand out 300 works of art. Schneider explains: "Participating in this project illuminates the distortions of the art world. It connects all of us who engage the project to the biggest art fair in the world. I might even meet some of you there." Looking forward to meeting you, too. Go HERE to contribute.
Superstar DJ Tiesto is spinning at LIV in the Fontainebleau Hotel (4441 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach) on December 8. It's the last night of his 8-city world tour sponsored by GUESS.
The Standard Hotel Miami (40 Island Avenue, Miami Beach) is hosting a party for The Wrinkles of the City: Havana Cuba. It's the latest book published under their Standard Press imprint run by the hotel's creative director Claire Darrow. "Wrinkles" documents the recent collab between French artist JR and Brooklyn-based artist Jose Parla that resulted in a huge mural installation in Havana, undertaken for the Havana Biennale, for which JR and Parlá photographed and recorded 25 senior citizens who had lived through the Cuban revolution. There will also be a screening of a documentary film about the project.
ArtSpot Miami is a new fair-within-a-fair that will pop-up in the Red Dot Art Fair tent in Midtown Miami from December 5 to 9. Organized by Chicago gallerist Aldo Castillo, it will include 12 galleries in a unique environment. Per a quote from Castillo in the press release: "Given the current world market fluctuations and ever expanding nature of the art fair business model, my mission is to maximize art fair exposure and productivity to forward thinking galleries and artists in top global markets such as China and the U.S."
My Ideal Bookshelf, editor Thessaly La Force's new book with illustrator Jane Mount, asks celebrities and creative types including Miranda July, Judd Apatow, Maira Kalman, David Sedaris, Jennifer Egan, Alice Waters and more to tell them what books have shaped them the most over the years. Mount's illustrations of contributors' perfect shelves are paired with anecdotes about why the books they chose are important to them. (Mount also does custom original Ideal Bookshelf paintings, if you're
thinking about a potential holiday gift for the bibliophile in your
life. They start at $250.) Below, some images from the book, which is out today. What's on your ideal bookshelf?
