Last month, our "Beautiful Rebels" Jean Paul Gaultier fashion show-party with Peaches Christ at the de Young Museum rivaled the Gaultier opening gala itself. Check out these beautiful rebel shots by Robbie Sweeny.

Valencia Street launched its monthly Sunday Streets pilot program this past weekend -- several blocks of the street will be blocked off on the first Sunday of the month for the next four months, in order to see if similar programs might work across the city. Photographer Ariel Soto-Suver of Street Threads photo (and book!) fame was on the scene to snap the looks. We'll be presenting her selections here all week.

We've been shopping green for a week now -- check out our previous guides to housewares, kid's stuff, gardening resources, and local beauty

Let’s face it. Finding an oversized sweater in your mom’s closet that looks good on you tends to make you feel better than purchasing one at a corporate retail store because (a) you hate homogeneity, (b) you like saving money, (c) you’re rocking something straight out of the 80s, and (d) you’re relieved of the guilt associated with buying an item produced overseas. Here are a few suggestions on where to shop locally for you tree-hugging, fashion-conscious souls. Read more »

See video

The other day I saw this woman was walking down the street, spitting image of Rose from the Golden Girls. Excuse?! Lady, I know you didn't get the glimmer for those high-waisted purple pants all by yourself. Leave it to LA electro pop duo Hi Fashion to debut a video (featuring luks crafted entirely by the group itself) today that speaks to this exact situation. So that I don't have to. Because no one wants that mess. Read more »

His nightlife stops included the Some Thing drag show at the Stud on Friday, a cruisy interlude at the Powerhouse on Saturday -- and of course a lavish opening gala celebration at the de Young itself on Friday evening.

Where Jean Paul Gaultier should go out this week

(11)

Revered French bad-boy designer Jean Paul Gaultier is in town for the unveiling of a neat-looking "enfant terrible" retrospective of his work at the de Young. (Will there be anything in it as scandalous as the tribute to Naomi Campbell's famous wipeout in the Vivienne Westwood show five years ago?). He also has a busy schedule: a red-carpet appearance at the new Al Pacino movie launch tonight, a private-ish A-gayish loft party on Thursday whose redeeming feature = drag goddess DJ Juanita More, and of course a lavish opening celebration at the de Young itself on Friday. ($300 per person -- I'll be blogging all the opulence and potential fashion faux paaaaaases.) 

But us lowly club kids love you too, JPG.
