We’re big fans of The Vision’s fashion sense here on io9, but what were his best comic book outfits? For the dedicated follower of synthezoid fashion, Brian Cronin over at Comic Book Resources has collected the Vision’s finest bits of wardrobe selection throughout his comic book history, and it’s fantastic.
David Bowie wasn’t the only icon we lost in the past few days. André Courrèges, the indelible Parisian fashion designer who helped to define the Space Age, also died late last week. Courrèges’ designs formed a huge part of what we think of as “futuristic” sixties fashion, and our ideas of what people would wear in…
The San Francisco Opera is doing a production of Mozart’s The Magic Flute starting tomorrow, and the costumes are this astonishing late-1980s fantasia that just makes me want to watch classic MTV for the next 10 hours.
We’re pretty obsessed with the costumes from Star Trek, both the original series and the later iterations. After all, Trek has a long and proud record of pushing the fashion envelope, from its military pajamas to its alien lingerie. Here’s a look inside a stunning new book about Star Trek’s greatest costumes.
Attack of the Butterfly Woman | This is either the greatest photo ever, or the most insane—or both. This was taken outside the Nathaniel Paul fashion show, during New York Fashion Week.

DC has refreshed its stable of comics once again, putting its characters in new situations— and most of them have gotten a new look to celebrate. But as usual with superhero makeovers, some are less successful than others. So we’re going to put on our fashion-hats and rate what’s hot and what’s not in the DC Universe!
There is no way I could afford these or, save the coat, look good in any of them. But that doesn’t mean these star-filled selections from the Fall/Winter Emilio Pucci Collection aren’t fabulous.
Hey, remember that dress that the internet went completely insane over? The one that some people swore was white and gold, but other were defiantly certain was blue and black?
