I know this.
And yet, how can I not be thankful that this photo was taken?
I mean, the cracking up. The energy. Shiloh’s missing tooth. Those perfectly unlaced moto boots. Mad’s furry coat and big ol’ white feet. And–sigh–Zahara is my new style icon, goodbye Alexa Chung…
Families this fuzzin’ cute should be ILLEGAL! But thank god they’re not.

Name: Kin Ying Lee
Occupation: Design Director of Madewell
Why She’s a Babe: Everything at Madewell, J.Crew’s little sister store, is cute: their jeggings (yes, we’ve been brainwashed into saying this word with a straight face), their Alexa Chung collabo, even their head designer, Kin Ying Lee. We love the design sensibility Kin brings to Madewell–classic but cool–we love how the online shopping site uses Asian models, and we love Kin’s adorbs dimples. If we could buy those like we buy jeggings, we probably would, too.
Gals. If you’re into what “trend forecaster” Nina Stotler calls the “quirky coquette” look that seems to be everywherrre this fall and is, as Stotler says, “currently embodied by young stars like Alexa Chung”–who’s our kind of babe–you can buy it for a reasonable-ish price at Madewell, J. Crew’s younger sister store, which launched their Alexa Chung for Madewell line today.
(And, no, this isn’t a sponsored post, although Madewell really should pay me for this shit and also Diana for being a walking advert–and a hot one at that–for their jeggings, which she wore when we appeared on the cover of Hyphen.)
Brit “It” Fashionista Alexa Chung will host the final episode of her MTV talk show, “On the Air With Alexa Chung,” tomorrow.
And we suppose we’re sad about that, for her, because we love this saucy little broad.

Now, you may be asking yourself, how is it that we have a favorite sock company? But Hansel from Basel socks aren’t just, like, socks. To us, they’re more like lingerie (you’ll find they have that effect on your significant other, too). Some sport sweet details–pom-poms, ribbons, knee patches–while others, like their over-the-knee and thigh-high socks, are just sexy.
We want you to experience the magic of Hansel from Basel firsthand, so we’re doing a GIVEAWAY. Here’s the deal:
The first 5 people to bring us 10 new Twitter followers (no spambots, please) get a FREE pair of Hansel from Basel socks. DM us with the names of 10 legit Twitter accounts who have started following DISGRASIAN and once they check out, you’ll never go barefoot again!
Of all the people in the world, why is adorable quirktress Alexa Chung (Note: Yes, we love her. But this is in no way a suggestion that you watch her show on MTV–or MTV at all, for that matter) the only person in the pseudo-celebosphere speaking with any reason?
In a recent interview w/ the UK’s Times, she discussed her resistance to show her airbrushed ass off for the benefit of male splooge magazines (Cuz lawd knows, an editorial spread in Maxim can take you far), saying:
“I feel like I have no need to be sexy for anyone other than my boyfriend. It feels a bit cheap. I didn’t want to be the token presenter that pandered to a male demographic.”
Sad, but I admit I was taken aback by the words that came out of the 25-year old TV personality’s mouth. I mean, cheap? What young star cares about being cheap anymore?
And for that matter, what’s so cheap about… um…

Why She’s a Babe: Normally, we don’t go in for girls who are more famous for what they wear than who they are, but there’s something effortlessly cool and likable about the 24 year-old Chung, who is 3/8 Chinese (Dad is 3/4 and, yes, we had to get out the calculator to come up with that one). Plus, she has a grunge-y gamine style that sets her apart from most celebutards and lands her in every UK magazine. And when Chung was a host on Popworld, a British pop culture, news, and music video show, we love how she put off a few of her famous guests with her breezy irreverence, as she did with the humorless lead singer of Panic! At the Disco or with Gwen Stefani, when she asked what Gwen’s new poop-fume will smell like:
