If Instagram is any indication, Tuesday night’s Steven Klein x NARS party at Alder Manor in Yonkers was a wild one.

How do you get a bunch of New York City dwellers to trek to Yonkers for a party on a Tuesday? Make sure the party is being thrown by Steven Klein x NARS in celebration of Klein’s collaboration (forthcoming) with François Nars, invite some of downtown’s coolest, partygoers including designers, models, super models, and It-kids like Alexander Wang, Andreja Pejic, Chloe Nørgaard, Amanda Lepore, Anja Rubik, Hanne Gaby Odiele, Natalie Joos, Harry Brant, Tao Okamoto, Anna Ewers, Daria Strokous, Sky Ferreira, Coco Rocha, Pat Cleveland, Susanne Bartsch, and Stephanie Seymour. Throw in an immersive experience produced by Etienne Russo, and you have yourself a manor full of artful installations featuring nearly-unclothed, made up models.

Sex clearly sells, or at least sex causes mass Instagram frenzy. The Internet went nuts over Steven Klein‘s images of model Anna Ewers in some body oil — oh, and kind of wearing a pair of jeans — for the launch of Alexander Wang Denim. Now with the addition of new images and a video, premiering on Style.com, Wang is continuing to feed the frenzy.

Alexander Wang Officially Made Denim Sexier Than a Pair of Calvins

Share Button

Three styles x three colorways, meant to be worn however you want… but we’re digging Alexander Wang’s suggestive suggestion.

Last night, as he’s wont to do, Alexander Wang posted the news on Instagram, and today we’re getting the full reveal.

The jeans will be for sale online and at Alexander Wang stores on December 8th. Pre-order it here. Until then, here’s Anne Ewers photographed by Steven Klein, wearing Alexander Wang denim and nothing else, all greased up, straight lounging.

We’ll take ’em.

Ah, denim, an American classic. Good for classic wholesome activities like riding horses and hiking.

And if you’re Alexander Wang it’s also great as a doorway for oil-slicked arms and hands. After all, what are pants for but to take off? 😉 😉 😉

#ComingSoon… #DENIMxAW #AWLaunch

A post shared by alexanderwang (@alexanderwangny) on

We bring you Alexander Wang’s teaser to denim, one category the wunderkind has yet to explore. Though Steven Klein’s photograph doesn’t show everything, it’s safe to say that Wang will put a new and exciting twist on the classic. It appears to be a starchier, thick denim with slight whiskering. We’re hoping for some solid semi-Mom jeans in the collection. But not like a regular mom. Like a cool mom.

Check @alexanderwangny tomorrow and everyday forever to keep up on this salacious launch.

Gisele Bündchen’s Undeniable Sex Appeal

Balenciaga’s fall campaign shot by Steven Klein

Hello yaaasss this is so good! They cut all of Gisele’s hair and went for the super short shear for Balenciaga’s fall campaign, lensed by Steven Klein. Alex Wang likes her like that. (We do too.) This proves, if nothing else, that sex isn’t just about long, wavy locks. But then again those thigh high patent boots aren’t hurting.

A Brooke Candy Crush

Share Button

Last night was Brooke Candy’s ‘Opulence‘ themed video premiere, sponsored by Diesel. The ‘freaky princess’ looked ravishing as she sat front row at the screening of her Steven Klein-directed short film, styled by Nicola Formichetti. Held in the basement of the Tribeca Grand, fashion legends mingled with the Susane Bartsch crew to create a surreal party spectacle… it was like a live-action video with the stars themselves! The pictures speak on their own behalf.

Brooke Candy’s Majorly Glittery, Draggy, Stripper-y ‘Opulence’ <3

Share Button

Steven Klein is at it again, this time using his newfound music video skills to back not Madonna, but Brooke Candy, the former stripper-turned-rapper. It was Brooke Candy’s appearance in Grimes’ Genesis video that first caught Diesel artistic director Nicola Formichetti’s eye, her knee-length braids moving him to bring Candy into his fold, styling her now for her Opulence music video. In the video are an impressive 25 looks — wigs, Delfina Delettrez jewels, Givenchy couture-inspired full-face glitter, Alexis Bittar masks, and bejeweled Diesel pieces galore. Brooke Candy and Diesel feted the video release Sunday night in the basement of the Tribeca Grand, flanked on all sides by gays in drag, their deer-in-headlights plus ones, and Amanda Lepore.

Visual Xanax: Bathroom Break with Alexander Wang

Make like an Alexander Wang model and hightail it to the restroom for a few moments of reprieve. Your boss, frenemies, and combative co-workers can’t get you there.

Why Don’t You Go As A Louis Vuitton Bag?

Share Button

In case you didn’t get your fill of Halloween festivities this past weekend, since the ghoulish night falls on a Thursday the costumes and candies last almost two weeks this year. If you’re still searching for dress-up inspiration or need another transformational persona to add to your roster, look to the sittings and parties that are more fantasy than fashion. Photographers like Miles Aldridge, Steven Klein, and David LaChapelle have your back.

Why don’t you go as a Louis Vuitton bag? Grab a stencil and some body confidence and get to work. Lil’ Kim photographed by David LaChapelle.

image-3You could always go as the creepy, pure girl. Steven Klein photographs Kate Moss as Good Kate for W.

Bad Kate is an option as well. Here, Moss plays the demon. Pearlescent teeth, mounds of accessories, and horns should do the trick.

image-5Toss the conical bras and lace gloves and try for a different Madonna. Alana Zimmer photographed by Miles Aldridge. For her sickly look, grab the Moroccan oil and some lavender blush.

image-3Always an option: grab a couture Margiela mask and go as Kanye West.

image-4 If pretty is more your thing, go as Natalie Vodianova’s Alice as shot by Annie Leibovitz. A blue dress, some maryjanes, a headband, and a smattering of small furniture should call the adventure to mind.

image-5Reference more than a few historical figures by going as David LaChapelle’s rendering of Amanda Lepore as Andy Warhol’s Marilyn Monroe.
