n. A servile self-seeker who attempts to win favor by kissing butt.

n. Chocolate clad lackeys catering to Miranda Priestly, editor of Runway.

n. Foils to fashion-challenged Andy in The Devil Wears Prada.

Get the Look: Ruth La Fela (NYT) points out what I think is the most disappointing aspect of the film- the designer wardrobe does not reflect today’s runway stars. Flaunted are classic (see: staid) names like Prada, Gucci, Pucci, D&G, and Christian Dior.

Missing from the costumes are designers I see pepper another “spoof” on the fashion media, MTV’s The Hills. (It’s the spin-off of Laguna Beach– LC is an intern at Teen Vogue. It’s meant to be reality TV.)

Devil spawned trend or not, brown is a delicious color that has been intermixed with summer white. Brown will transition into fall with the changing of the leaves. Shop and eLuxury for the designers that REAL fashion assistants are coveting like Marc by Marc Jacobs, Nanette Lepore, and Fendi.

Outfits above are Fendi and John Paul Gaultier available at eLUXURY.
