Clippings: Jean Paul Gaultier's Bloody Runway Show Edition



    - Man, these fashion week runway shows keep getting weirder and weirder. First Alexander McQueen's alien-like show, and now Jean Paul Gaultier presented his latest menswear collection on models that looked like they'd just gotten out of a huge brawl. We get it, they're tough guys, but ... wow. [The Cut]

    - The store's only two months old, and East Harlem's Costco is already cutting 160 jobs, citing low December sales. And we thought the recession was easing up. [Racked]

    - Diane von Furstenberg is already one of the most successful American designers working today, has a grand outpost in the Meatpacking District, and sits at the head of the CFDA. So what else is next? Well, a home collection, of course! The designer's plotting a DvF line that will include bedding, house accessories, bath linens, and more. [FWD]

    - Lots of media outlets reported the news today that Gisele Bundchen will be skipping Brazilian fashion week this season to spend time with her new baby in Boston. As if anyone actually thought she'd hit the runway? Jeez, people, give the gal a rest. [Page Six]

    - How will Hamish Bowles deal with the budget cuts at Conde Nast while traveling for the various fashion weeks this year? Why, staying with friends, of course! We have a feeling that "staying with friends" for Bowles is a far more glamorous proposition than merely crashing on someone's couch. [The Cut]

    - Coco Rocha's not just planning to debut her new clothing line on the red carpet at the Grammys this weekend -- she's also hoping to stage a presentation at fashion week in September! [Chic Report]
