What We Can Learn From Celebrity Relationships

We live in a world where Paris Hilton makes approximately 20 billion times as much as your average public schoolteacher, and talk show host Oprah Winfrey has a net worth double that of a lot of small countries. What do these celebrities do to earn such riches? Sure, Paris had her reality show, but surely…

Soundtrack To The DNC: Hillary Clinton’s Dream Playlist

Politicians aren’t exactly known for having musical taste, but you would expect the people who throw big events like, I dunno, the Democratic National Convention, would do a better job of picking cool music to introduce some of their most important speakers. That’s why it struck me as an odd choice to have Hillary Clinto…

Audrey Tautou’s Coco Chanel Movie

One of our favorite actresses, Audrey Tautou, is starring as Coco Chanel in the upcoming movie Coco Before Chanel, one of a few recent Chanel movies. But as the title hints, the film will focus on Coco’s life before she was known worldwide for her little black dresses and quilted handbags, a time you might…

Project Runway: Keith Whines His Way Home

Looks We Hated: Joe’s ugly motorcross look; Keith’s bland, ill-fitting, snooze-fest; Stella’s mismatched separates, shockingly devoid of leath-uh.

Last night’s episode of Project Runway featured the much anticipated return of an actually complicated and innovative challenge. The producers may have thought the drag queen episode was a doozy but dressing a bunch of dude…

Crave: Trixie Heels

The previous resident of my place must have been a shopaholic (takes one to know one), because that chick still crowds up my mailbox with all the catalogues she had sent here. Although I must admit, I thumb through them lustfully — even the crappy home furnishings one with mini stone waterfalls. As I wa…

Style On The Street: A Belt That’s Not Holding Up Pants

J.Crew is always styling their catalog models in skirts with tank tops, cardigans, and a belt on the outside. This girl must have seen one of their catalogs and thought, “that belt thing is something, but I only wear neutral colors — no plaid or poppy red for me.” [Trender Bender]…

The Accidental Mouth Kiss: Haven’t We All Been There?

During last night’s surprise appearance by Barack Obama at the third night of the Democratic National Convention, we totally did a double-take when we saw the dashing Senator from Illinois plant a big one on Jill Biden, the wife of his running mate, Joe Biden. Was it on purpose and platonic mouth kisse…

Shannen Doherty: Straight To The Top Of The C-List

In her 90210 rise to stardom, Shannen Doherty had it all — fame, fortune, and the most glamorous bitch face on television. Over a decade later, we’re genuinely surprised Shannen isn’t still in the public eye or happily hitched to some billionaire with a pompadour. But after being a brat and leaving the show that…

Slideshow: Cozy Corduroy

Autumn is my favorite season because, let’s face it, you have more clothing options in the next few months than you do the rest of the year. You can wear more than one layer without perspiring your weight in sweat but you don’t have to bundle up to protect against frostbite. You can wear some…

Woman Gets Booted From Federal Building For Fashion Statement

California just legalized gay marriage, but they might need to explicitly legalize gay slogan t-shirts too. Lapriss Gilbert, 31, was booted from the Social Security office in Van Nuys by a security guard who claimed he wasn’t allowed to let her in the government building because of her “” t-shirt. Gilbert, who was simply there…

Lizards Mark Territory By Pumping Up

The gym I belong to (notice I didn’t say “work out at”) isn’t the kind of place where beefcake-like men make primal-sounding noises as they hoist barbells above their heads. If it were that kind of place, I wouldn’t even be a member, because grunting guys would be in control. Need a five-pound weight? Too…

Celebrate Tom Ford’s Birthday With Gucci-Inspired Style

Yesterday was Tom Ford’s birthday, you know the American fashion designer that successfully revamped Gucci? To celebrate, we put together a few iconic Gucci looks, but since we can’t afford the real thing, these picks are just as chic and a lot less expensive. Remember when Madonna wore the first outfit to the MTV Video…
