The DIY Ikea Dress!

Here’s one way to re-use those Ikea plastic bags. We just hope this dress is easier to put together than a Bjursta table … [If you want to see things you can really use, here’s a rundown of what’s new at Ikea. — Editor] [StyleFrizz]…

Spencer Pratt Gets Busted!

Last night, the dude everyone loves to hate, Spencer Pratt, got busted by the LAPD. For what? Something only a true d-bag could get pulled over for. Suffice to say, it involves his MONSTER TRUCK. Find out why!

Yes, these denim, itty-bitty man-panties (hate that word!) can be yours, or his as the case may be. And picture this: a man with over .009 percent body fat wearing…

The Assorted Feuds Of “American Idol” Judges

With Paula Abdul gone, we thought there would be peace and harmony on the “American Idol” judging panel. But alas, no. Basically, it seems like whoever occupies the fourth chair pisses someone off. On Tuesday night at the Los Angeles auditions, Kara DioGuardi and guest judge Katy Perry looked close to stabbing each other…

What Women Are Really Saying With Their Clothes

I feel really sorry for the guys who read Men’s Health and get all sorts of bad advice … usually in the form of “insightful” articles written by women. I can only imagine these ladies must have been dumped hard-core — maybe in a text message or at their mother’s funeral or something — to…

Score: Chanel-Esque Silver Tights For Under $10

As we bask in the afterglow of couture fashion week, we can’t stop obsessing over Lagerfeld’s massively triumphant Chanel collection. Those classic, pastel suits — mousse pinks and baby blues and lavenders — looked as delicious as a bag of robin’s egg candies (or in this case, more like a box of macaroons from a…

Breaking News: Jessica Simpson Is Just Like Us!

Haiti? So last week. The State of the Union? Meh. So last night. Us Weekly’s idea of a breaking news story is Jessica Simpson’s rather untimely flatulence. [Us Weekly via DListed]…

Is This A Viral Video For Christina Aguilera’s Next Album?

It’s unclear who created these videos and why, but rumors are swirling that these very strange short promotional videos are teaser spots intended to virally hype Christina Aguilera’s upcoming album, Bionic, which is slated for an April release. If they are, Lady Marmalade has certainly gone off in a whole new direction. For…

Wish List: Incognito Droplet Necklace

Oh hai, Sex Toy Fairy? I would like this doohickey the next time you’ve decided I’ve been a good Editor and deserve a present. The Incognito Droplet Necklace is a piece of jewelry with two small vibrating cylinders on either end, which also double as, uh, nipple clamps. I’m not really into the latter, a…

Dealbreaker: Wusses

Recently a rather naive friend was telling me about the new girl he was dating. They’d been out a few times, but he hadn’t heard from her since the last date, when he went over to her place and then had to lie down because he felt sick.

Now, wait just a minute.

Brown And Black Come Together At Last

This two-tone cardigan from Forever 21’s Twelve by Twelve line proves our point that black and brown can be worn together. Notice how the taupe-y brown softens the basic black so the complete look has a classic Chanel feel, but the zipper flower pin adds a bit of kitsch. Pair this cardigan with blue or…

Elizabeth Edwards Finally Kicks John To The Curb

Turns out that People got it right this week—Elizabeth Edwards has, in fact, reached her breaking point and is ditching her philandering hubby of 32 years. Yesterday, a spokesperson for Elizabeth confirmed that she is “moving on with her life after a excruciatingly painful period.” John has confirmed the story, too. He says, “It i…

How To Date Like A Dude

The other day I was on the phone with a girlfriend, dissecting an argument she’d just had with her man, when it occurred to me that though I’m certain her boyfriend wasn’t happy about their fight, I highly doubted he was giving his bestie the play-by-play. In fact, I doubt he mentioned it to anyone.

Is The Baby Boot Cut Coming Back?

Out of all areas of fashion, denim is perhaps the least predictable. Back in 2003, would you even dream of wearing non-flared jeans? (Back then, asking for a straight leg cut might as well have been asking to go shopping in your mom’s closet.) And just when you thought that baggy could never, ever be…

Mariah Carey And Nicki Minaj Want You To Get Up Out Their Faces

Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj are the new Beyonce and Lady Gaga — or something like that. Either way, they want you to “Get Up Out My Face.” Friendly! Oddly, this video reminds me of a Target Christmas commercial. Also, I like me some Nicki Minaj, but this is her going a little…

8 Signs You Should Unfriend Someone On Facebook

As a moderate Facebook user, I love this “10 Signs You Should Unfriend Someone on Facebook,” written by someone at Cosmo of all places. (They do funny lists now? I thought it was all “how to give your boyfriend the night of his life” advice.) The whole list is so perfect and clever it’s hard…

Well, There’s An Idea

The young French couturier Alexis Mabille sent models with hair color blocked to match his dresses down the runway. The question is, would this work on the realway? We just don’t have the answer. [The Telegraph]…
