Style Scoop: Rebecca Minkoff’s Holiday Cheer, Kim Kardashian’s Big Kut, Maison Martin Margiela is Couture

By  December 19, 2012

Let’s get one thing clear GLAM guys and girls. Just because a label classifies itself as couture, doesn’t mean that it is. But now, in the case of Maison Martin Margiela and Alexis Mabille, they’ve been officially invited into the exclusive couture fold. The Commission de Classement Couture Création in grand Paris awarded the two houses couture status this week, based on the number of looks shown for their respective collections, the size of their design houses, craftsmanship of bespoke pieces, and the qualification of showing two shows per year.

After we ring in the new year, there will be another countdown on our minds: fashion week. This year, London is getting a few new additions.

Now… who’ll be joining us across the pond? [GlamChic]

Ladies: get your guy out of those beat-up tees. Or, take a style cue from the boys. Either way, Prada’s latest collaboration with Richard Haines is here to solve your casual-meets-chic woes. Miuccia Prada enlisted the New York Times illustrator for a limited-edition capsule featuring sketches from the house’s Fall 2012 collection. If you don’t live in New York, Hong Kong, Milan, or one of the other three cities where the tees will exclusively be sold, we’re sure they’ll be on eBay for your bidding pleasure soon. [GQ]

She bangs! Kim Kardashian kut her locks and ended up with some pretty blunt bangs in the process. And who did the buzzed-about better half to Kanye West trust with the scissors? None other than celebrity haristylist Chris McMillan who was responsible for Jennifer Aniston‘s priceless “Rachel” shag. [GlamBlush]
