Whoa there, three-hundred-and-twenty-eight dollar hammer pants. We love you. We love you because you sold out all summer from the various designers that decided to make you and now, in the wee hours of fall, you've delivered from a designer we trust and at a price we can afford. We promise we will try not to cheat on you.
These slouchy brushed twill trousers will probably sell out in a week or two, unless, because it's Shopbop, they miraculously sit there for a month. But seriously, we're guessing fashionistas worldwide have caught onto this trend by now. Judging by the fit on the model, these trousers run big. She is probably wearing a zero but, even though they are meant to billow, they still look kind of gigantic on her (the waist should be tighter, no?). So, ladies, that means if you wear a size 26 jean (and not a 24) you should probably still by the size zero, and so on. Oh, just when we thought we were going to die from fashion-starvation, we find these goodies. Looks like we'll survive August after all.

>> Late last week, Fashionista got a tip that Marc Jacobs was to be married this past weekend in Paris to his Brazilian beau of three months, Lorenzo Martone.
However, the designer was confirmed to be at the Louis Vuitton offices in Paris earlier today by a member of the brand's press office, and working doesn't seem very much like typical newlywed behavior. In fact, the LV rep told Fashion Week Daily: "They're just rumors. There's no truth to it at all." And Marc Jacobs' New York rep sang the same tune: "Marc did not get married — nor does he have any plans to."
Same-sex marriage is not currently legal in France, but civil unions known as PACS, which can bring some rights to same-sex couples, are allowed. Word is that Marc and Lorenzo did host a brunch yesterday in Paris to "celebrate their relationship," and are off to Ibiza together in August. No word, however, as to whether that celebration was a marriage and the Ibiza trip is a honeymoon, or if they're just a simple party and vacation.
>> INSIDER WIRE —Just like Naomi Campbell, Anna Wintour's got a new billionaire sugar daddy on her hands: Evgeny Lebedev, who donated the largest sum ever — $500,000 — to the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund last week. Who knows where his generosity to fashion will take him next; He's already partnered with Jefferson Hack to produce a Russian edition of Dazed & Confused. [Telegraph UK]
