Take Ivy: Backstage Photos from Tommy Hilfiger's Ivy League-Meets-Savile Row Show

The Tommy girl most certainly does not wear pajamas and Uggs to class. Take a peek at all of the houndstooth, short suits and fedoras that graced Tommy Hilfiger's Ivy League-meets-Savile Row-inspired Fall/Winter '13 show.

Watch An Adorable Family Do the "Harlem Shake"


Stop whatever you're doing and watch this video of an adorable household having some quality family time by doing the "Harlem Shake." Shit gets real and apparently DIY "Harlem Shake" videos are the "new Gangnam Style." [via The Clearly Dope]

Screen shot 2013-02-11 at 6.41.49 PM.pngThere's something kind of a touching about the fact that a deceased man in Illinois left his $1 million estate to two actors he didn't know and never met: Kevin Brophy (The Young and the Restless) and Peter Brophy (Lucan). [via Uproxx]

"Between Two Ferns" is baaaaack. Watch Zach Galifianakis make a shitload of movie stars very uncomfortable in his two-part Oscars edition ft.

Night Works Take Paris


It's easy to confuse the new crop of bands whose names take the form "Night [plural noun]." There's the somnolent alt-country of Night Beds, the acoustic soul of Night Moves and the discofied Brit-pop of Night Works, who just released this video for "Long-Forgotten Boy." Frontman Gabriel Stebbing (formerly of Metronomy) circumambulates Paris in a chic yellow scarf to a four-on-the-floor kick drum, incessant bass ostinato and growing pile of synths. I wonder if he ran into Kendrick.

Michelle Williams Didn't Dress Up for Her Newest Cover

We can't stop watching Miu Miu's new short film "The Door" starring Gabrielle Union, Alfre Woodard, Emayatzy Corinealdi, and Adepero Oduye. It's about a woman whose marriage has ended and whose friends try to cheer her up. Obviously it's stylish but it's also pretty heart-warming. [via Fashionista]

Fader84_Cover_Single_Front_620.jpeg Ooooh, we like Solange on the cover of Fader! Looking good, lady. [via Fader]

lynnyaeger_twentysomethingmistakes.jpgLynn Yaeger really doesn't seem to be have a great fashion week. In her latest NYFW diary, she says "who you are, if you are attending New York's fashion shows this week, is most likely one unhappy puppy," calls the season "dolorous," ends her description of the Marc by Marc show with "blah blah" and recounts being "extremely uncomfortable" at Thom Browne. Please feel better! It'll be over soon, we promise.

While everyone else spends the rest of NYFW strutting around in heels, we'll be eating these chocolate ones, thanks. [via The Cut]

Ladies of 'Advanced Style' Model Karen Walker Eyewear

Screen shot 2013-02-12 at 3.14.28 PM.pngUgh, we have such a friend crush on all of the women in Karen Walker's new campaign. Advanced Style blogger Ari Seth Cohen photographed a gaggle of stylish 65-92 year-olds for Walker's new eyewear lookbook before interviewing them. They've all done amazing things with their lives (Ilona, pictured above, is an artist who has painted portraits of notables including Tennessee Williams and Joyce, below, worked under Helen Gurley Brown at Cosmo). Even though we're mad that we aren't having weekly tête-à-têtes with them to discuss our wardrobes and our lives, at least we get to see them here all of their fabulousness. More images below.

Galliano Was in the Details at Oscar de la Renta

The Oscar de la Renta show is always a particularly chic moment in the harried and hectic mayhem that is New York Fashion Week. This season, however, the focus on the show was cranked up considerably thanks to the fact that de la Renta had taken in the disgraced former Dior designer John Galliano to work on his new line. Would the clothes be less ladylike and more louche? Less Park Avenue and more Poiret? More important, would Galliano join Oscar in his bow after the show?

Although Galliano was reportedly backstage (and press was kept out of the backstage area) he did not make a catwalk appearance. The clothes were classic Oscar, but definitely had some Galliano flourishes here and there. Suits were tailored with peplums in a signature Galliano style, and there were quilted toiles and chinoiseries. Could this mean that the only thing fashion people (like Liza Minnelli fans) love more than a crash-and-burn fall from grace is a comeback?

Snoop Lion Loves Getting French Tips (No, Really)


f42765ea3f9c531f77daa6ec855c71bb.jpegSnoop Lion's new interview in Vice is so so so amazing. We especially like this little tidbit: "Even when I'm getting getting my nails done, that's real player ... The average guy can't see himself getting a French-tip manicure, but I'm not the average guy ... It's about being spooned and groomed, dipped and whipped, suited and booted, gooted and looted, scuttered and buttered." Snoop, pleeeease be our friend.

Screen-Shot-2013-02-13-at-8.59.00-AM.pngThe Anti-Defamation League is on John Galliano's side in the debate over whether his outfit to the Oscar de la Renta show was mocking of Hasidic Jews. President Abe Foxman released this statement: "Anyone familiar with the dress of traditional Orthodox Jews should not mistake what Galliano is wearing in the photograph as 'Hasidic garb.' Hasidim do not wear fedora hats, pinstripe pants, blue jackets or an ascot tie." We've spent a lot of time in South Williamsburg and have to agree, Hasidim don't wear any of those things.

joanna-coles-da-best.jpegJoanna Coles -- the new Editor in Chief of Cosmo -- told The Cut that a) Internet porn has been bad for women and young couples, b) she wants Cosmo to stop focusing on how to pleasure men, and c) "women love gay men, and of course we want them in our lives, but they don't have to be the be all and end all for sex advice." She sounds like our kind of woman.

A concerned citizen in the UK sued because this sexy Chanel ad (starring Keira Knightley) aired during a showing of Ice Age 2, and now it's being restricted during programs for children. We would give it a 4/10 on the sexy meter, but either way it's really weird that it was scheduled to play during a children's movie. [via The Cut]

Model Casey Legler's Fashion Week Diary, Part III

We've been avidly following artist/model Casey Legler's career ever since we read about how she was signed by Ford to exclusively model in their men's division after her friend, PAPER contributor and photographer Cass Bird, asked her to model menswear for a shoot and later showed the modeling agency her photos. Legler recently booked a campaign for AllSaints and, full steam ahead, is embarking on her first fashion week. She'll be sharing her experiences with PAPER over the coming days and, as you'll soon notice, modeling is only one of her many interests. Equally influenced by art, music and her creative friends, Legler tells us that her experiences as a model cannot be separated from her experiences in those other creative fields. Take a look at her final diary entry, which includes a Valentine-y breakfast, walking in her first NYFW show and winding down at Westgay. Read on.
valentine_casey.jpg7 a.m.: I'm eating a crepe with nutella for breakfast this morning. It's from a craft and crepe party we had yesterday hosted by the one and only Ms. Lauren Shields. I'm serious. We made valentines. Take that Fashion Week.

caseydiary3_2.jpg9 a.m.: Picked up the 4 x 6 foot print I've been working on from Duggal's (these guys are major). It's named after Manet's Olympia (obviously) and for Susan Sontag and Barthes's Camera Lucida. I finished it on the heels of shooting with Inez + Vinoodh [Inez Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin] and working with the exquisite Mr. Galloway. I can't help but think that there's a little bit of them in here as well.

Noon: Band practice with my bandmate Lucas Segall. We are Worker. I'm a classically-trained opera singer and quit when I was younger because they wouldn't let me do recitals in jeans and insisted on dresses....this is a dumb reason to quit anything (at least for me). But, that said, I love singing so much that I went back to it with focus a few months ago. No opera, just some weird, good stuff. It started out as a performance project re-appropriating songs with male vocals: my voice is quite high (I'm technically a mezzo-soprano) so we dug the juxtaposition of the lyrics, the history of the songs and my voice packaged in signifiers you wouldn't expect to indicate a mezzo-soprano. Two hours of awesomeness with Lucas. Kept my mind of off what was up ahead in just a couple of hours...

caseydiary3_4.jpg6 p.m.: Call time for Michael Bastian. I don't know how else to describe it but through a series of words. The prep is all a bit of a blur: show up, wait, drink some water, try to eat, watch Sebastian [Sauve] eat, sit around, wait, get up to do a walk through, get your hair done (Martial!), sit, wait, get a camera in your face because press is now in the prep room, wait, get your nails done, get up and go do another walk-through, watch the boys read in line, wait, watch everyone look for Sebastian, do the walk-through, sit down, wait, get your make-up done, get five cameras in your face now because more press has shown up, have one of them ask you if you'll take your shirt off (the answer is "no"), smile, sit down, drink more water, get in the line-up, do another walk-through, watch the set get cleared, get dressed, tell another photographer he can't take a picture of you getting undressed, get in the line-up, wait, Michael styles all of us, Martial checks all of us, Michael does another two passes to assure staying is correct, wait.

Screen shot 2013-02-14 at 12.07.39 PM.png9 p.m.: Then this happens: the line in front of me gets shorter, the guys ahead are walking, the music is blaring, I move forward up the line. Then I'm next. Michael styles me one more time and says, "Give 'em attitude." And so, I serve you: attitude.

Screen shot 2013-02-14 at 12.07.44 PM.png9:15 p.m.: Then suddenly, clap clap, music ends, hugs hugs all round, room empties out and Paolo, Sebastian and I get in the real line-up: taking our make-up off.

caseydiary3_6.jpgcasey_diary3_5.jpgMidnight: Then, I go home: Frankie Sharp's Westgay. Darlings and geniuses, DJ Nita and DJ JonJon Battles up on deck, in the exquisite company of my buddy, Jeremy of House of Stank.  Everyone is here.  Shut the door, let's have a kiki.

Tomorrow 7:30a.m.: Flight to London. Off we go.

The Real Video for "Suit & Tie" Is Here


Attention, everyone: no longer do we have to make due with that silly lyric video for Justin Timberlake's single "Suit & Tie" featuring Jay-Z -- the real thing is here. Through the video we enter a black and white world of luxury massages, luxe studios and the easy living of Justin and Jay. These vignettes are complimented with some Sinatra/Rat-Pack-esque crooning in front of an old microphone, drink in hand and shots of ladies undulating in slow motion. Blah blah, you know the drill. It's basically a men's razor commercial. I feel the same way about the video this video as I do about the song: pleasant but sort of a snooze. Check it out above.

The Dream of the '90s Is Alive at the New Museum

At a press preview yesterday morning for NYC 1993: Experimental Jet Set, Trash and No Star, which is now open and occupies all five floors of the New Museum, curator Massimiliano Giani explained the significance of the title the exhibition borrowed from a Sonic Youth album. "It signaled a shift between the grittier New York, a moment in which the underground as a concept destabilized and changed to a world in which ideas of underground and mainstream became much more entangled and complicated."

Sonic Youth's archetype -- a noisy, arty band on a major label -- could be seen as a model for many of the artists in the show, an experimental jet set who used modest materials (trash) to turn themselves into stars. Stripping Andy Warhol's "superstar" concept of its glamour, they perhaps prefigured the oversharing enabled by the internet. (As Gioni told the assembled press, "1993 was the year the first blog was published. Many of us are here thanks to that.")

Larry Clark, 1993 Wall Piece, 2013

Behind him, Larry Clark's 1993 Wall Piece, a mixed-media assemblage of graphic skateboard decks, Kids casting shots and Clark's sticker-covered front door, updated Warhol's notions of celebrity to include '90s 'it' kids like Chloë Sevigny. Works by Wolfgang Tillmans, Lina Bertucci and Devon Dikeou take their friends and peers as subjects. Elizabeth Peyton and Kathe Burkhart pay homage to earlier eras' celebrities.

Paul McCarthy, Cultural Gothic, 1992 [foreground] and Sean Landers, [sic], 1993

At least 13 works qualify as self-portraits, if you count Gabriel Orozco's Yielding Stone, a plasticine ball measured to the artist's exact weight, and Sean Landers's [sic], 451 pages of scrawled diary entries. For artists coming up in the early nineties, especially those who weren't straight white men (the exhibition's women artists outnumber the men, 38 to 37), the personal was political, duh. Derek Jarman's Blue and Gregg Bordowitz's Fast Trip, Long Drop are both video works about the artists' AIDS diagnoses.

Nayland Blake, Equipment for a Shameful Epic, 1993

The disease seems to hang over the show, visible in works like Andres Serrano's morgue photograph AIDS-Related Death, which shares a room with John Miller's photographs of buildings that formerly housed gay bathhouses. 2013's nostalgia for 1993 yields to 1993's nostalgia for a time before AIDS. Turn around, and John Currin's two Girls in Bed paintings look a lot like girls in deathbeds. Nearby, Nayland Blake's Equipment for a Shameful Epic links sex to death, displaying prop scythes and bloody appendages on a coat rack next to a playscript titled "Asses Together."

Jason Rhoades, Garage Renovation New York (Cherry Makita), 1993

Almost everything in the show is personal, intimate, handmade. Jason Rhoades's large installation Garage Renovation New York (Cherry Makita) consists mostly of cardboard and foil. Sadie Benning's video It Wasn't Love is shot on a Fisher-Price camcorder. One recurring theme is lo-fi appropriation of mass culture, as in Karen Kilimnik's remix of the black comedy Heathers and Kristin Oppenheim's a capella cover of the Beach Boys' "Sail on, Sailor," which plays on loop on the fourth floor.

Still from Cheryl Donegan, Head, 1993

Some works manage to be funny and sexy as they challenge the viewer's gaze, daring you to judge them. Cheryl Donegan's Head depicts the artist lapping up milk to the tune of Sugar's "A Good Idea." Art Club 2000, a group of Cooper Union undergrads, posed around Manhattan in GAP clothes, even taking out a fake GAP ad in Artforum. Slick and vapid, yes, but it's hard to look at the pictures without wishing you could have taken part. In the lobby, the museum has recreated Rirkrit Tiravanija's Untitled (1271), where lunch will be served everyday from one to two, albeit Cup Noodles instead of Tiravanija's trademark Thai curry.

Wolfgang Staehle, The Thing BBS login screen, 1993

The exhibition's most prescient work isn't even visible in its intended form. Peter Halley's Superdream Mutation was initially made available for sale via a pre-World Wide Web BBS network. The New Museum display features a print-out of the image, a computer bearing the log-in screen and a floppy disk, on which is written "Peter Halley GIF." Even in 1993, GIFs could be art.

Catching Up With Karlie Kloss and Ryan McGinley at NYFW

ryan_karlie_nyfw.jpgAfter he first directed her in a beautifully-shot clip for Mercedes-Benz CLA, artist Ryan McGinley reunited with model (and cookie/"kookie" purveyor) Karlie Kloss during fashion week where we had the chance to catch up with the twosome. Though I initially expected to talk about cars and deserts (the video was filmed in California's stunning Tejon Ranch), the conversation took an unexpected -- yet most welcome -- turn when I learned that a pre-teen McGinley had been a little punk straight out of Harmony Korine's fantasies. Read on for more about the artist's club days (and who told him where to go) and what goes through Kloss' head when she sashays down the runway.

Ryan: PAPER Magazine told me about what was happening in New York City, like all of the exciting stuff. When I was a teenager in Jersey, I would always get it on the newsstands in my town and be like, "Man, I gotta come to the city and go to The Limelight and go to The Tunnel." It's cool, man.

Were you an underage club kid? Now I'm picturing you right out of Kids, you know.

Ryan: Oh my god, I was in New York City almost every night. I used to go to N.A.S.A. We would all meet up in Washington Square Park and go there. There was also a really good party at The Limelight called Disco 2000 that we would go to --

Michael Alig's party.

Ryan: Yeah.

Karlie: So would your whole crew from Jersey come in together?

Ryan: We would all sneak out. We were like 13-14 years old. There was a phase during that time called a 'Polo raver.' We would wear head-to-toe Ralph Lauren and, like, really go out and party all night. I was a bit of a little thug.

Karlie: But a fashionable thug!

And speaking of parties, Karlie, how were the Grammys this past Sunday?

Karlie: They were awesome! It was a new experience for me.

Ryan: I feel like I went just watching it on TV.

Karlie: To be honest, it's probably a better experience from the comfort of your home, watching it on your couch. But I had a great time because I had the opportunity to interview [people] for House of Style on MTV.

What were some Grammys highlights?

Karlie: I think one cool thing that you can't understand until you're standing there is how small the tent is and the red carpet itself. Everyone is crammed into this small space. It's also a small world. Everyone knows one another. Drake is making jokes with Frank Ocean and Frank Ocean is talking to J. Lo. It's a really small world-type of industry -- same as fashion.

Did anyone talk at the after parties or during the show about Chris Brown snubbing Frank Ocean by not giving him a standing ovation like everyone else?

Karlie: [I didn't see that.] He just sat there? I was probably on a plane at the time the whole blogosphere was blowing up about that. I did not know that --

Ryan: We're big Frank Ocean fans.

Karlie: Yeah, we're big Frank Ocean fans.

And, finally, since this is fashion week, Karlie, what do you think about when you're walking down the runway?

Karlie: To be honest, I try to zone everything out and just become part of the moment -- become that character. I enjoy that. I try to ignore all the noise, ignore who's sitting front row and the stress, what I have to do later and be that character that the designer has created.
