When people talk about "disposable fashion" they're usually referring to H&M, Forever 21, and the other fast-fashion chains. But artist Annette Meyer takes the concept one step further. She makes clothes that are actually disposable - as in, they're made out of paper. Our favorite is her paper wedding dress project - she custom designs wedding dresses made out of the flour bags from different countries. As she explains it: "The dress plays with the paradox of the romantic dream, traditional femininity and extensive consumerism of the modern wedding. But despite hinting about the transitory nature of all things, including marriage, and the disposable nature of a dress that so much effort has been put into, the respect for the romantic vision is intact. " We say: it makes sense because you only wear it once, so it doesn't need to be durable. But couldn't it be sugar bags instead of flour sacks? -ALISON COOL
(Updated) Kate and Pippa Middleton Hit Another Wedding this Weekend, Major Papers Disagree About What They Were Wearing
Kate Middleton and sis Pippa got rather posh this weekend for a friend's wedding in Wiltshire, England. While we like seeing them in their high street ensembles, we really love it when they look completely English in hats and color. Kate broke out the Erdem again, this time a scarlet lace version. (The DailyMail reports that she wore Collette Dinnigan, though we're more inclined to believe WWD which reported that it was Erdem.) The shoes are also a point of contention between the two papers--WWD reports LK Bennett, and the Daily Mail thinks they're Prada. She topped it all off with a jaunty red hat, which is not the same one she wore with that famous red and white Canadian outfit.
