Mugler Menswear Goes NSFW, Debbie Harry On The Good Old Days (And The Good Old Clothes), Marilyn Monroe Breaks Her Own Record, And More…

Mugler creative director Nicola Formichetti is kicking things in a kinky direction for his men’s show on Wednesday. The “uncensored” versions of his new video series, with a guest appearance by the band Jessica 6’s Nomi Ruiz, will air on Xtube, a user-generated porn site, the day after the show. [WWD]

Debbie Harry helped make punk style cool when she and Blondie hit the scene in the seventies, but as the rock ‘n’ roll queen explains, ripped and shredded was about all she could afford. Harry talks about her early onstage style and the long love affair between music and fashion in the new W. [W]

Marilyn Monroe beat her own record when her white halter-neck dress sold for $4.6 million, topping her dress that went for $1.4 million in 1999 as the most expensive dress ever. The infamous subway grate dress from Debbie Reynolds’ collection was auctioned off along with other legendary Hollywood costumes worn by Charlie Chaplin and Audrey Hepburn. [Vogue U.K.]

And for your unsubstantiated rumor of the day: Is Carine Roitfeld launching her own fashion magazine? [Hint]

Shia LaBeouf Teams Up With Marilyn Manson For Video

 

If you had asked us how one would follow-up a massive summer blockbuster hit, a Shia LaBeouf Marilyn Manson mash-up would not have been our first answer. Forget about the prosthetic breasts; when’s the last time Manson had a hit song? 1998? While on Live with Regis and Kelly, the Transformers 3: Dark of The Moon star describes visiting the kimono-wearing goth rocker to discuss “the visuals for his album.” As Shia explained to an incredibly excited Kelly Ripa, “In real life, too, he’s a real sweet guy. He’s an eccentric human being.” According his anecdote, Manson apparently lives in a lightless movie theater above a liquor store in West Hollywood. Yup, sounds about right.


LaBeouf also expanded his creative horizons by shooting Kid Cudi’s “Marijuana” video in Amsterdam during the Cannabis Cup, where a pink kimono wouldn’t seem nearly so ominous. While Shia didn’t get into the details about the music video he’s been working on for Manson, he will say the footage will likely “involve things I can’t even really say out loud, since this is morning television.” Are you sure you’re ready to say goodbye to that A-list money so soon, Shia? You’re going to need it to buy antique medical equipment. And light bulbs.
