Nicole Richie Launches House Of Harlow 1960 Handbags

Proving that she’ll take her very successful House of Harlow 1960 brand as far as demand will allow, Nicole Richie has added a collection of handbags to her fashion and accessories brand. The handbag line, which includes everything from crocodile clutches to large leather bags, has the bohemian vibe Nicole is known for. The concept behind the collection was to contrast luxury with casual, using young calf hair and relaxed vintage leathers. But skins aren’t the only focus–great attention was also paid to the hardware. Gold and black studs adorn the larger bags, and jaguar heads close clutches. The line is slated to arrive in stores mid-July, and seems to have something for every woman, a goal Nicole said she had in mind while designing. Prices will range from $150 to $625.

Marc Jacobs In Drag = A Scary Woman

Rarely do we come across a photo of a woman that scares the bejesus out of us. But this photo of Marc Jacobs in drag does the trick. If we were walking down the street and this woman was coming towards us, we’d cross the street. We’d fear she smelled like cat urine or worse, might try to scratch our eyes out in a rage, or try to poison us with an apple. Let’s hope MJ doesn’t continue to indulge his cross-dressing cravings.

Heidi Klum’s Simple Recipe For Spicing Things Up

“There’s nothing wrong with a nice garter belt. I’m not saying you have to put up a pole in your bedroom and start swinging off the rafters. But I love that sometimes!”

– Heidi Klum tells the July issue of Glamour how to keep things spicy in the bedroom. I’m sure being married to Seal helps. And having a house with rafters from which to swing. I’m not buying the garter belt though — do dudes really dig silly accoutrement like that? I guess I will try it and report back. [Glamour] Keep reading »

The Aliens Are Coming!

I’ve been obsessing about where and when I would have my first close encounter of the third kind since middle school. My teacher, Mr. Vice, was a little bit of an alien conspiracy theorist. His bulletin boards were covered with clippings from the National Enquirer, which at the time, mostly did articles about Oprah being fat and alien/Bigfoot/Loch Ness Monster sightings. He spent our four hours a week together showing us an array of videos — “Aliens and the Mayans,” “The Truth About Roswell,” Aliens in Ancient Egypt,” “Crop Circles: An Extraterrestrial Playground.” When I started sleeping on my parent’s floor in the middle of seventh grade (I convinced myself that our back yard doubled as a UFO landing strip, I mean we did live in Arizona) they pulled me out of the gifted program. I tried to push images of flying saucer abductions out of my mind as I drifted off to sleep. My parents told me it would never happen, that Mr. Vice was a lunatic. Maybe Mr. Vice wasn’t crazy, maybe he was a man before his time, or even an alien himself sent to prepare us for his race’s arrival. Keep reading »
