Page Six reports that the Margiela for H&M collaboration isn't doing so well because it's so expensive and avant-garde. Most people just don't appreciate a good trompe-l'oeil bra shirt, we guess. [via The Cut]

When asked about Anna Wintour's potential position as an ambassador and the backlash that followed, her longtime boyfriend Shelby Bryan said: "It's not just Anna - I see powerful women who really get slammed for being too forthright or running their business in a very determined way. If [former GE CEO] Jack Welch were being named as a potential ambassador, people wouldn't be saying, 'Oh, but hang on, Jack's a little strict in the way he runs his companies.'" Amen, Shelby! [via Fashionista]
Grace Coddington gave another great interview. She lamented that in today's fashion shows, "the focus seems to be more on the audience than on the clothes that go down the runway. Any old shit can go down the runway and they all sit there and clap." And on the subject of the changes going on at Balenciaga, she warned that commercial success is their goal: "Don't think of it as the same house as it was when Nicolas was the creative director; that's everybody's mistake." [via Fashionista]
Ricardo Tisci tapped some of his famous friends, including models Kate Moss, Mariacarla Boscono and Francisco Peralta, artists Marina Abramovic and Jared Buckhiester, and bullfighter Jose Maria Manzanares for the new Givenchy ad campaign. Pictured above are Manzanares and Buckheister. [via WWD]

You'll be relieved to know that Blink-182's new EP is the #1 album on iTunes right now. It's called Dogs Eating Dogs. Yep... [via ONTD]
Gossip Girl's final episode aired last night and, if like us, you were too lazy to watch it, you can get all the spoilers -- including the big reveal about who was Gossip Girl (hint: it's not Kristen Bell!) -- at Celebuzz.

It's a little dreary in New York today, so we won't be doing any surfing. But that won't stop us from enjoying this relaxing, psychedelic "dub" version of Peaking Lights' "Beautiful Sun." The duo of Aaron Coyes and Indra Dunis decided to release a new version of their latest album, Lucifer, and they asked San Francisco-based filmmaker Mike Seely to do the video for this track. Aside from the annoying, intermittent busy signal (or maybe we're just having flashbacks?) we're trippin' on this video.

Andre Leon Talley really knows how to make a simile! He described Mick Jagger's dancing during the final show of The Rolling Stones' tour (pictured above) thusly: "Mick Jagger on stage is like a dandelion floating in the air...the Jagger prance-strut-dance is as powerful as James Brown's snake-hip wiggle, as Elvis Presley's gyrating hips with his guitar, as Little Richard's over-the-top sexy jigs." He then compares him to a Pentacostal minister. [via Vogue]

Deborah Lippmann is making a line of nail polish inspired by the girls of Girls. Hannah's color is "Hapless Hunter Green," Marnie's is "Prim and Proper Pink," Shoshanna's is "Virtuous Vivid Violet" and Jessa's is "Bohemian Burgundy." The adjectives tacked onto the color descriptions are a little cringe-worthy, but we like the burgundy and the green. [via HuffPo]

"A lot of pre-Prohibition drinks used liqueurs ever so slightly. It works," assures Frank Caiafa, the Vault at Pfaff's beverage director, who created Melkor's Ghost as a riff on the classic White Russian-esque Banshee. The floral Armagnac gives the cocktail a smooth heft and unearths an appealing, "undefined taste," he points out. "If you make this with vodka, it's just not the same."
When hanging the last of the ornaments on the tree, with Bing Crosby crooning in the background, this is the gluttonous concoction you want in hand.
After spending two years working for, and being mentored by, Nicholas Kirkwood, British footwear designer Sophia Webster has stepped out on her own. Her whimsical shoe and accessories line, which the designer says is inspired by "anything and everything," launched this fall during London Fashion Week and features graphic prints, unexpected cut-outs and eye-popping color combos that are fit for Rainbow Brite. Appropriately, the up-and-comer staged models in variously themed doll boxes during her debut presentation. You can snag her shoes on Net-a-Porter and check out more of her designs below.
We all know that dropped charges don't always mean innocence. In the beginning there were dozens of eyewitnesses, but as the DA's case unfolded, there was nothing but divergent, even bizarre, statements rife with contradiction. There are even questions as to who was to play bass for the Cro-Mags (Mike Couls or Craig Setari). On Friday, Judge Alexander Tisch dismissed all charges against Flanagan because the prosecution, who were unable to produce witnesses for a grand jury, could not prove its case beyond a reasonable doubt.
Harley offered: "When I found out I was the so-called perpetrator and they were the so-called victims, I was shocked. They were making it out like I launched myself into the dressing room like a wild man and just started stabbing people -- what a joke. I've known where [Cro-Mags singer] John [Joseph] lives for years. If I wanted to jump him or attack him wouldn't I just go to his apartment and wait for him? Nooo, I would go to a big concert and attack him in a room full of witnesses and all his friends and band members, all by myself. Even a dumbass should be able to figure out that that makes no sense and isn't what happened. All these fake hoods were so quick to point the finger at me to try to cover their own tracks and all the rest of the sheep and the media just went along with it.
My first court date was September 27th. I was nervous, as I should have been, facing four felonies and looking at a good amount of jail time -- possibly 2½ years for defending myself. That night would have amounted to nothing back when I was a kid, but now in 2012, in this soft-ass New York, it's become a big deal, and with all the media attention it was pretty major. But the 20-plus witnesses the DA had were all starting to fall to the wayside. All of the statements they made to the cops and to the press, including John's, were starting to contradict each other, and the DA started having a hard time putting a case together because of it. It was almost as if John was helping me beat the case."
These past six months have cast a pall on New York Hardcore, which was one of the most intense and underrated subcultures ever. Perhaps one day all these guys will just hug and make up, but I'm not holding my breath. In the meantime, Harley gets back to his life, teaching Jiu-Jitsu at the Renzo Gracie Academy, writing music and caring for his sons. New York hardcore's "family" may be broken, but, then again, the worst family dysfunction often inspires the best art.
Did you hear? According to the Mayan Calendar, the end of the world is December 21, 2012. But worry not, legendary ladyman and cabaret chanteuse Joey Arias is here to shepherd us into the apocalypse with his End of the World show this Friday at Joe's Pub. The performance marks Arias' first time working with music director and pianist Thomas Bartlett (Doveman) and will also feature performance artist Narcissister, dance troupe the Pixie Harlots and theramin player Cornelius Loy . In honor of his upcoming show, we asked Arias to tell us about the five things he'd do if he knew the world was ending tomorrow. His answers below.
1.) Walk into a bank naked, get all my money and stuff it into a clear raincoat. Then, my little dog Rumbles and I would fart out the door together. FFFFrraapshhpi!!!
2.) Meet the Pope and tell him some dirty stories for confession and then put a pie in his face. Very Three Stooges!
3.) Have a dinner for 12 and eat the most craziest foods, prepared by the number one chef in the world. Then drop acid for dessert!
4.) Have a recording date with David Bowie and Stephan Hawkins to leave our last testament on earth.
5.) Hold hands with every child from every nation and tell them stories of what it was like to be me.
