For seven years, Too Hot Not to Cop brought you the latest and greatest in women’s clothing, shoes, and accessories online. Now, we’re taking it one step further by giving you the lowdown on what’s hot in fashion, food, and film. Consider it the news roundup you want to read. Here’s our roundup of what to wear, eat, and watch this week.
It’s leather weather
It’s finally fall, which means those of us on the East Coast have about a one-month window to wear all of our jackets before it’s parka season. Therefore, it makes perfect sense that outerwear brand Mackage has decided to open its first Canadian location this week. The retail store at Le Carrefour, Laval—just outside of Montreal—will carry the Montreal-based brand’s men’s and women’s collection.
While Mackage, which is the creation of designers Eran Elfassy and Elisa Dahan, may be best known for their buttery leather jackets, expect to find a full range of outwear styles including fur-trimmed parkas and tailored wool coats. Their fall/winter 2015 collection is all about exaggerated collars and contrasting textures. I especially love the merlot-hued Tansy Wool coat, which riffs on the classic double-breasted pea coat and is cinched with a sexy black leather sash. For men, the Milan-SP coat has a plush wool lining and fur trim around the hood that can be removed to wear right now. Pompom-topped beanies and shearling-lined gloves from Mackage’s accessories department complete your Great White North look.

Disney princesses in six inches
Late last week, Lucky Peach writers Anna Hezel and Gabriella Paiella brought together two iconic American creations: hot-dogs and Disney. They figured that with the number of times we’ve seen Disney princess reinvented—as real-live women, hipsters, and even pin-up dolls—it was about damn time someone reimagine them as food. And what better food to use than a hot-dog?
Their article features recipes for DIY-ing Rapunzel, Ariel, Belle, and Pocahontas frankfurters, including an American cheese “fringe dress” for Pocahontas and a red-onion seashell bra for Ariel. The easiest hot-dog princess to make is probably Belle, which is covered in a mustard-adorned American cheese ball gown, with barbecue sauce for hair and ketchup lips. My guess is that Belle is probably also the tastiest while Rapunzel, with her cornhusk hair and onion dress, is the least. Hot-dogs never looked so magical.
Steve Jobs, again
Steve Jobs is starting to feel like the Hulk. It seems like every few years, a new movie is made about the late Apple co-founder and CEO. We’re all still trying to forget Ashton Kutcher’s cringe-worthy turn as the tech icon in 2013, but we’ll have a chance to see Michael Fassbender step into the role in Steve Jobs this weekend.
Directed by Danny Boyle (of Trainspotting and Slumdog Millionaire fame), I’ve got to say that watching the trailer for this biopic doesn’t entirely piss me off. It helps to have Aaron Sorkin behind the screenplay, which is based on Walter Isaacson’s authorized biography of Jobs, and of course, talented actors like Kate Winslet and Jeff Daniels rounding out the cast. The movie homes in on Jobs’s role at Apple leading up to the launch of the iMac in 1998. Fassbender has a good track record for portraying famous dudes (he played Bobby Sands in Hunger and Carl Jung in A Dangerous Method), so it’s safe to assume he’s done his homework on this one. While the movie doesn’t have nearly the same level of buzz as an Apple product release, it’s likely the Steve Jobs movie we’ve all been waiting for.
