Crane sees the future of fashion as a time when materials and resources could be severely restricted because of their environmental impact, and she hopes edible clothing will provide an alternative.

Lady Gaga’s Meat Dress aside, for many of us, the idea of wearable food peaked with edible panties.  But, if you understand how intrinsically wasteful the fashion industry is, and you could have a dress that used fewer valuable resources to make you look good, would you wear a dress made of Gelatin?

Emily Crane, a student at London’s Kingston University, is betting that you would.

Crane sees the future of fashion as a time when materials and resources could be severely restricted because of their environmental impact, and she hopes edible clothing will provide an alternative.

Crane calls her creations Micro-Nutrient Couture, a blending of shelf-staples, chemistry and imagination, cooked up in her London kitchen.

“I experiment with materials that occur naturally when cooked up from edible ingredients,” Crane writes at her web site, “including gelatines, kappa carrageenan, agar-agar sea vegetable, water, natural flavor extracts, glycerine, food coloring and lusters. This is high-tech kitchen couture.”

Crane’s work is an exotic part of Kingston University’s display during London Fashion Week.  And the reviews have been positive. Enough so that Crane envisions a day when each of us can buy a kit to make our own edible outfits at home.

So can we look forward to a day when we’ll attend a dinner party where dessert might be served right off the hostess’ back?  “Why not?”, says Crane.  “Let the banquet begin.”

Anna Wintour will attend the NYC premiere of "The September <br/>Issue."  An insider says Wintour is being “completely controlling” <br/>in regards to publicity, which she stars in but didn’t produce.

Anna Wintour, the legendary editor-in-chief
of Vogue magazine for twenty years, is the most powerful and
polarizing figure in fashion. She is usually hidden behind her
trademark bob and sunglasses.

An insider says Wintour is being “completely controlling” in regards
to publicity for her flick, which she stars in but didn’t produce.
Perhaps she should spend more time managing her mag: Ad sales at Vogue
are down 36% from last year.

Now Buzzing | A Cut Above

HaircutsPhotos by Gerard Uferas Time for a trim, Givenchy-style.

Summer finally seems to be here, and it’s time to celebrate with a
new haircut. The most directional one of the season, as far as we can
tell, comes courtesy of the superstar stylist Luigi Murenu, who was
responsible for the tough, Latino-inspired buzzcuts at Givenchy’s fall
2009 runway show. Murenu turned heads with a supersevere two-tier crop —
the sides and back were fully shaved halfway up, and the rest was
cropped short. If you’re willing to try the look, we suggest you print
this page and take it to your barber; if you decide to use clippers at
home, we are not responsible for the outcome.
