• Nacho Figueras and Prince Harry

    Just got send this picture of Nacho Figueras being buddy buddy with Prince Charles. That’s them in the middle. For those of you who don’t know, Nacho Figueras is a world-renowned polo player and a socialite.  Appropriately, he’s the new face of Ralph Lauren’s Polo Fragrances. Our long time readers might remember that we posted a Youtube video of him and his poetic views on the sport of polo. That was a year ago, and now we’re getting photos sent to us by their people. Very flattering.

    And we’re not ashamed of posting a male model on here.  He’s got a smoking hot wife and a life that we’re jealous of.

    6 Bests of The Moment | New York Fashion Week

    Now that New York Fashion Week is officially over, (and we’re glad it’s done), it is now time for reflection over what we just saw…or didn’t see.  You see, we’re all the way here on the West Coast where fashion exists but it doesn’t exist to the extent where the whole city will halt and devote a whole week to it (Note: we did have a Fashion Week that ultimately failed.)  That is why we appreciate The Moment’s coverage of New York Fashion Week.  They put their blog on overdrive and we’re inundated, in a good way, with all things fashion.  Also, they handle themselves professionally and make the readers feel like fashion insiders as opposed to teenage fashion interns who type in all caps, “OMG! I’m inside the Miss Sixty show!  Aren’t you jelly?!?!”  So we decided to post our favorites of The Moment blog’s fashion week commentary.

    Have you ever heard of fashion bloggers calling Karl Lagerfeld “Uncle Karl?”  Have you ever heard of Stephen Colbert call Bill O’Reilly “Papa Bear?”  Well Ralph Lauren is our Papa Bear.  I guess that makes us Lo Heads.

    2. The Fashion Telex | Brian Reyes

    [Words by Horatio Silva]

    We love any good story about model spills on the runway.  It’s almost like FML without the overbearing feeling that life is not worth living anymore.  Suck it up, models.  It’s not the end of the world and at the end of the day, people still treat you better compared to to the rest of society.

    Maybe the comparison was too obvious, but it’s crazy how much they had the specificity down. I wonder if they’ll take from any other iconic movies for future shows. Darth Vader capes anyone?

    Ralph Lauren Spring ‘09

    There was more than one hundred pieces, and their worst ones were still outfits that I would wear. I just picked the ones that jumped out to me on a first impression. Very good form!

    A Look at the More Ralph Lauren Fall Arrivals

    It looks like Christmas tree green is coming back. Honestly, it’s still too hot around here for me to truly appreciate the merits of these outfits.
