Julia Stiles Mocks Celebs with Faux Men's Fashions

"Styles by Stiles" is the new (fake) clothing line developed by actress Julia Stiles. The 'Save the Last Dance' star, in an attempt to mock the profusion of celebrity clothing lines, has constructed a collection of faux eco-friendly menswear, which is hilariously featured in this parody video.

On Zoolander-esque male models, Stiles exhibits--with an air of designer indifference--a series of "all-green" styles, including a shirt made out of 10 other shirts, a pair of "shants" (a shirt that doubles as pants--because no fashion line is complete without a hybrid style or two) and a suit crafted entirely out of newspaper. She wisely notes, "People say the newspaper industry is dying. But I say it’s living. Living on your body."

The tie from the suit is made of Swiffer cloths, which, obviously, lends itself to fashion and function, as Stiles demonstrates by plucking a cloth and wiping down her sunglasses.

While the Styles by Stiles line has "sold out" (naturally!), according to the Julia Stiles Styles site you can donate to The Lunchbox Fund, which seems to be a real organization dedicated to providing meals to impoverished children.
