By now, we're more than used to the tricky shape that is the dropped crotch pant--so why did this Comme des Garçons pair catch us so off guard? It must be the madras, which takes the edgy cut in an entirely unexpected direction: preppy. Do you wear these with your combat boots, or with your needlepoint belt with little whales on it? Boat shoes or a black Rick Owens leather jacket? What say you, darlings: Would you wear these at all? THE DETAILS: Comme des Garçons Homme Plus madras short, $490, www.barneys.com

While there are many words to describe Karl Lagerfeld, “goofy” would not be the first that comes to mind. However, the latest issue of Elle Spain gives our favorite faces a Disney makeover---and we love! "La Moda Animada" features hilarious drawings by Ulrich Schröder, placing our beloved designers in an animated world. The Kaiser makes a fabulous Goofy, Domenico Dolce is Mickey, Marc Jacobs is Donald Duck (in a skirt, bien sur) and Donatella Versace is an ultra chic Daisy. Browse through the entire slideshow to view the rest of the cartoons, and we’ll gurantee you’ll be tickled. A perfect, whimsical start to your Monday morning.

Two of Chic's favorite things came together this weekend---fashion and game shows---when Isaac Mizrahi taped an episode of the Jeopardy! Million Dollar Celebrity Invitational. His adversaries? Spinal Tap actor Michael McKean and Charles Shaughnessy (yes, that's Maxwell Sheffield from The Nanny). The semi-finals for the show will air on May 3, 4, and 5, while the finals will air on May 6 and 7. Set those DVRs now---and Isaac, we're rooting for vous!

Tea and Sympathy

We wouldn’t necessarily categorize pouring tea as a taxing activity, but sometimes after a jam-packed week (or at the beginning--bonjour, Monday!), exhaustion simply takes over. So when you are hankering a spot of peppermint tea, but you are simply too weary to lift the porcelain handle, this ingenious little invention takes over. Simply place the pot on the Teapot Frame and gently pour into the cup. Voila! Barely any effort exerted.

The Best Handwriting We've Seen So Far

Our paper product fixation continues! We know your event budgets are abysmal at best, but there is no excuse for a sub-par invite, n'est pas? At the next Daily dinner, expect to see custom work from the divine Queen Quills Calligraphy, masterminded by Emily J. Snyder. This is far from stuffy wedding-envelope fare (although she does do envelope addressing!). Chic is partial to the Sweet Bay style, seen above, which looks pretty brilliant when used in, well, anything from a custom menu to an escort card. Just something to think about when you're planning those summer soirees, fashion loves!
