Coachella '08!

So, yeah, Coachella was this weekend! I didn't go (although I think I'm going to Pitchfork this year), but since being into the whole idea of summer music festivals is part of our stance on life, I thought it would have been fun to peep some of the pictures of famous and semi-famous people at the fest, if only to catch a glimpse at what everyone wore. But, um, there aren't that many pictures! At least not of people we are interested in. But here is Jenny Lewis of Rilo Kiley, who I always love:

And here is M.I.A., looking kind of Blade Runner-y. I heard she had a stand-off with the show security after inviting people to join her onstage. I'm sure she was thinking "Bring the noise!" when the organizers were like "Insurance liability!" I got a text from a friend during her set that said "MIA'S STARTING A RIOT!!!!!" and I got really excited for some reason.

And this is Sienna Miller. I don't know why I'm posting this since she borderline-annoys me, but it's a cool little dress she's wearing.

Who ever thought that Dita Von Teese would be at Coachella? Not I! I kind of love her; if this photo isn't proof of how utterly committed she is to her aesthetic, I don't know what is.

Oh, and here is Prince doing a cover of Radiohead's "Creep." It's kind of awesome even though watching this makes me seasick:

Devendra Banhart is going out with Natalie Portman and they wear matching peacoats

Or maybe they're just good pals who walk snuggly down the street and collaborate on benefit albums together. Who could know? Natalie Portman bores the pants off of me these days, but I guess I approve? Or at least I dig the Devendrameister's shades. Anyway - photo ganked from Jezebel, who i.d. my favorite skate hippie as "Charles Manson Meets Sienna Miller." Apparently most Jezebel readers aren't so schooled in the way of Devendra, which is mind-bottling to me, if only because it begs the question: "If no one knows who Devendra Banhart is, why can't I get my hands on a pair of tickets to see him at the The Hollywood Bowl???" Good grief.

But wait - a second look at the comments reveals that one Jezebel reader (with a cute little Teenage Fanclub avatar, no less) has posted a link to this superfun fashion game on Devendra's website. It's basically Devendra-as-paper-doll, and you can dress him up in all kinds of hippie garb. I put him in caftan and tie-dyed socks first; now I've got my eye on the shredded jeans, purple poncho, and yellow kicks.

Edie Rose for DKNY: Rachel Bilson Designing Her Own Line

The fun never stops when you're a celebrity: According to WWD, Rachel Bilson, she of Jumper and, of course, "The O.C.", is designing a line for DKNY. It's a junior sportswear line that will be called Edie Rose, and it should launch in September, with Bilson as the face for the advertising. (I guess that's a given.) Apparently and a little unusually, she's going to be putting her acting on hold a bit to focus on the line, even learning to sew to learn more about the process of designing and making clothes. Items should retail from about $19.50 to $49.50 at stores like Macys, Nordstroms and other department stores, which makes the line accessible and affordable.

At this point, these sort of things are a dime a dozen and create a lot of eye-rolling, but in my mind, Bilson's one of the few young Hollywooders who has real personal style and great taste. (She rocks Rick Owens jackets with cheery yellow scarves and looks adorable doing it.) I was never much of an "O.C." watcher (I'm really allergic to Mischa Barton) but every time I caught it I always liked "that Summer girl." She's got a good eye, so who knows -- Edie Rose might be clothes that are as easygoing and fun-loving as Bilson herself.

Some pics of Edie Rose (call me crazy, but it's pretty cute):

Avril Lavigne To Design a Line for Kohl's: Like, OMG.

Yes, people, c'est vrai: Avril Lavigne is designing a label for Kohl's. We are opposed to this, but kind of not because even though I find Avril to be obnoxious and kind of wrong, I'm still oddly fond of her. But let's leave that between my hypothetical therapist and myself. Some details: launches in July just in time for back-to-school (OMG!) and it will be called Abbey Dawn (like, dude!) It's all kind of a sign of the upcoming apocalypse, no?

Oscars 2008 Post-Mortem

I'm a film person, so watching the Oscars is practically a job requirement for me. But I'm telling you, even being in the industry and being able to shout "That's my screenwriting professor!" or "I interned for that dude!" at the monitor doesn't make watching the long, long telecast any less grueling. You need nice, sparkly dresses to practically wake you up from the occasional stupor, and sadly, any fashion sparkliness seemed to be lacking last night. I'm not normally a hater by temperament and I'm a big fan of subtlety over mega-glitz anytime. And for the most part, many, many people looked incredibly lovely and tasteful, and there were some genuinely amazing moments in the show itself. But perhaps this was the issue: Oscar fashion has become such a dog-and-pony show and such a speculative-spectator sport open to everyone that perhaps too many people play it safe now. Even red-carpet risk-takers like Tilda Swinton (who wore Lanvin) and Cate Blanchett (who wore Dries Van Noten) seemed relatively subdued. (Although, let's be clear, I thought they looked quite nice, I was just hoping for something more-more.) There were just so many 'appropriately colored' strapless column dresses of red, black, or beige-pink-grey that I can't even remember who wore what! I guess I miss the swan dress factor, the yellow dress factor and just a general sense of personal individuality. Which actually made Diablo Cody (who wore Christian Dior) my favorite look at the Oscars -- not because I'm such a huge fan of leopard print, but because she looked the most like herself but still glamorous. (And go writers! Whoo hoo!)

Still, it can't be easy to have to dress for the Oscars. Think of all the levels of subjectivity you have to dress for: yourself, of course. And there's also your peers. Then the press cameras, the television camera, the actual room. And then for history, knowing you may end up over and over again on some tiresome Oscar montage reel twenty years later, making people scream, "Get on with it already!" while throwing popcorn at the plasma screen.

Courtney Love, Givenchy "Muse"

Courtney Love articles are usually all chaos and motormouth, but I personally would like to have heard more on the Givenchy stuff and the new record. But doesn't she look good in the picture below?

Pete Doherty + Irina Lazareanu, Sitting In a Tree

These pics of Pete Doherty and Irina Lazareanu makes us feel a little squicky, but somehow we cannot resist posting them. Irina looks really wraithlike, and Pete...well, he looks like himself, for better or worse. If we avoid thinking about what we know, we have to admit that the photos look kind of cute. But once we remember what we've repressed, ach, here comes the squicky...

Random Picture Entry: Jenny Lewis

Jenny Lewis and Becky Stark are playing tonight at Spaceland. I donít have tickets, and itís soooooo sold out. By way of moping, I spent the morning looking at pictures of Jenny and listening to her solo record, which is probably my favorite album of 2006 so far.

Earlier this year Chuck Klosterman wrote in Spin (which Iím never buying again, now that Chuck Klosterman and all my other favorite writers there are gone): ďIt is strange that she has become an indie-rock sex icon, because sheís not glamorous or provocative; sheís just cute and friendly and devoid of pretension, and fashionable in the way that women tend to appreciate more than men.Ē

I guess thatís true, although part of me still thinks itís kinda impossible to deny the universal hotness/fashionableness of Jenny. Usually she makes me think of dresses, vaguely milk-maid-ish dresses, the kind of dresses I wanted to wear when I was six-years-old and now want to wear again (and Iíd pair them with knee socks, as Jenny so often does). But then I found this non-dress photo and couldnít not share. This just might be one of the three or four instances in the history of the universe in which itís actually okay to speak the words ďhubba hubba.Ē

When Kate Moss Attacks

We're usually not one for the celeb gossip, but we can't resist this: the latest in the Kate Moss Chronicles has our heroine losing her shee-it with a few intrusive paparazzi. Say what you will about Kate, spoiled supermodels, rapid paparazzi, cocaine or her questionable taste in beaux (except for Johnny and Jefferson), but can you get over how chic she looks? Her outfit has a sort of slouchy, insouciant, early 90s grunge vibe - the era that made Kate famous, of course -- with those baggy men's trousers, waistcoat and too-long sleeves. Everyone should look so cool after they've finished stomping all over a camera.
