Perez Hilton

Today’s newest fashion icon: Coco Chanel Perez. The self-proclaimed “gossip gangsta” has recently launched a new edition to the Perez Hilton empire, Coco Perez.  According to the Coco Perez about page, the LA Times called Perez, “like US Weekly, the Star, the Enquirer and Life & Style all rolled into one sweet yet snarky, sagacious yet salacious gay man.” Perezhilton.com has becoming a leading celebrity news site since it was launched in 2004 and was named one of the top five Web sites checked by college-aged women in 2008, according to eMarketer.

This new blog is similar to his original celebrity gossip blog, yet focuses  completely on the fashion world.  The site will feature the latest news about upcoming spreads in your favorite magazines, street style looks, celebrities on the red carpet, where to find your favorite fashions from your favorite shows and movies, interviews with up-and-coming designers and more.

For those who are addicted to Perez’s sarcastic sense of humor featured in his daily gossip posts and looking for up-to-the minute fashion news, Coco Perez will definitely be a site to check out. As Perez would say, this site looks like its going to be “pure seks.”

The Twilight Saga: Nordstrom’s New Moon Collection

July 24, 2009

Jumping on the band-wagon?  Or pure genius?

InStyle provided an exclusive sneak peek of Nordstorm’s new line of Twilight-inspired clothing, ranging from T-shirts and accesories to fall jackets. While Nordstrom released the photos of the new line amidst Comic Con hype surrounding the release of the Twilight sequel, New Moon, the The Twilight Saga: New Moon Collection won’t be available until October, just before the November 20 release of the film.  Good timing.

While Nordstrom may appear to be following the Twilight trend, their timing couldn’t be better and it’s a smart move to increase sales. Other retailers, including Hot Topic, started selling Twilight merchandise last fall during the hype of the film’s release. Twilight was even labeled as the savior of Hot Topic, according to The Cut:

This welcome break from never-ending economic doom and gloom is brought to you by Twilight, the movie responsible for boosting Hot Topic’s sales 11.4 percent in the third quarter. What? Yes. Twilight merchandise has saved Hot Topic from bloody retail death in the economic downturn. Just look at the numbers:

The mall-based retailer’s comparable-store sales were negative from the second quarter of 2005 until October 2008. They have risen each month since then, increasing 6.5 percent in November, 4.3 percent in December, 6 percent in January and 10.8 percent last month.

Will The Twilight Saga: New Moon Collection increase sales rapidly at Nordstrom?  If “Twihards” have anything to do with it, then the money will surely be rolling in.

What do you think?  Is Nordstrom just jumping on the bandwagon or is this new collection a smart move?  Would you buy anything from the The Twilight Saga: New Moon Collection?
