Fashion news: Hurley makes nachos for Christie Brinkley, Ungaro’s harsh words for LiLo and women are lining up to be hobbled


Though it seems like an unlikely pairing at first, Lost’s Jorge Garcia and Christie Brinkley work out, make nachos and generally live the good life together in the pages of Vogue Deutsch. Of the pairing, photographer Bruce Weber says: “Christie is the ultimate California beach girl and Jorge is the ultimate hippie.” So they both have the less-is-more, beach bum thing going on.

Seems that Emanuel Ungaro himself agrees with the rest of the world that Lindsay Lohan’s debut collection for his fashion house was disastrous. Are we susprised? Ungaro, who sold the company in 2005, said, “I am furious but I can’t do anything about it.” Going on, the designer lamented that his fashion house “is in the process of losing its soul.” [The Cut]

Women are going nuts for the alien-inspired platform heels donned at Alexander McQueen’s Spring 2010 show. The designer has been swamped with shoppers desperate to wear and perhaps even try walking in the food-binding shoes. Sure, they looked awesome on the runway but who would actually wear these? Besides Lady Gaga that is. [Grazia]

Much to the delight of veggies everywhere, Jean Paul Gaultier has teamed up with Melissa Shoes. The plastic stiletto sandals for Spring 2010 are the second collaboration for the duo–Gaultier was the first to jump on the Melissa Shoes bandwagon way back in 1982. [Racked]

The co-founder and chairman of accessories firm Dooney & Bourke, Frederic Bourke, was sentenced yesterday to a year in prison and fined $1 million. The courts say Bourke bribed officials in Azerbaijan in a plot that would have robbed the citizens of their most valuable national resource. He was convicted of conspiracy to violate the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and Travel Act and making false statements to the FBI after being linked to Oily Rock Group Ltd. [WWD]
