Team Edward Fans Have A Reason To Get Their Panties In A Bunch

To add to the ever growing list of vampire-inspired products, Marks and Spencer designed a line of underwear based on “Twilight” star Robert Pattinson, called R-Pants. And though these are technically men’s underwear, it wouldn’t be shocking to see girls all over buying them to be closer to Robert, in a weird sort of way. The undies are a low-rise style that fit under skinny jeans to accommodate the latest trend of slim pants, clearly a nod to the hipster style that’s taken over men’s fashion. While Pattinson won’t be starring in the campaign, the line is sure to sell out once it hits stores in September. We just don’t think that men will be the ones buying them. [Guardian] Keep reading »

Interview Needs An Infusion Of Inspiration

Clearly, Interview magazine has a bit of a creative issue. The editors seem to be in a slump with their designs because, as the ladies at Fashionista pointed out, more than a few of their recent covers are beyond similar. Instead of switching up their look month to month, the glossy has instead been opting for close-up, black-and-white shots for their covers. In the past two years, four issues from 2010 (those featuring Marion Cotillard, Megan Fox, Madonna, and Carey Mulligan) have been shot this way, as well as SIX covers from 2009! What’s the deal, Interview? What would (founder) Andy Warhol say? [Fashionista] Keep reading »

Crap You Don’t Need: The $1,800 Sports Bra

I have a hard time buying expensive sports bras, because not only is it going to get sweaty after each use, but the color will fade due to the sheer number of times it has to be laundered. Kelly Dooley, the creator of BodyRock Sport, obviously doesn’t care and seems to think the world needs to bring fashion to the gym. She created a sports bra called the Trenta, which retails for $1,850! It not only costs way more than the norm, but also features a whole display of Swarovski crystals! The spandex sports bra was a collaboration with jewelry designer Joseph Knight of Knight & Hammer and features an embellished necklace of silver charms along the neckline of crystals. The designer claims that the embellishment can be removed and worn as a necklace, but I’m sorry … who wants to wear Swarovski to the gym? Or pay almost two grand for a sports bra?

Your Go-To Summer Dress

Summer months are meant for languid afternoon picnics, happy hours that turn into evenings out, and long boozy brunches. The last thing we have time for when it’s warm outside is thinking about what to wear, and though maxi dresses are a simple go-to, they always need that embellishment that only jewelry can bring. But along with this long white dress comes a built-in dramatic gold necklace, meaning we’re dressed and ready to go before our boyfriends. And that’s an accomplishment.

Wonder Woman Gets Beautified

While celebrities left and right are creating their own fragrance, everyone’s favorite comic book vixen, Wonder Woman, is branching out into the world of cosmetics. To celebrate the superhero and her beauty, MAC Cosmetics is launching a limited edition color cosmetics collection this spring, all based on the kickass cuff-wearing comic book character. The line will include lipsticks, eye shadows, blush, and nail polish, undoubtedly inspired by her red, white, blue, and gold bustier, short-shorts, and knee-high boots. Superpowers not included.

Don’t Want Acne? Quit Smoking!

As if you really needed another reason to kick that terrible smoking habit — that is, if you do smoke — here’s news that just might put you off those cancer sticks. Recent studies found that those who have the nasty habit are also more likely to have another nasty issue: acne. So that means in addition to stinky clothes, yellow fingers, and smoking breath, smokers can now add pimples and poor complexions to their list of issues, all thanks to the cigarettes they’re inhaling. We’d suggest heading out to the drugstore for Nicorette gum ASAP and relishing in your new, clear face once you’ve kicked the habit. Your lungs — and pores — will thank you.

Quotable: Marc Jacobs Takes A Brain Vacation With The “Jersey Shore”

“Recently I watched every episode of ‘Jersey Shore”s first season. I don’t know if it was any good and I certainly didn’t learn anything, but it was definitely hypnotic and it gave my brain a vacation.”

Marc Jacobs on his “appreciation” for a certain reality TV show. Let’s hope this means we’ll never see one of the cast members fist-pumping in the front row at his show. [New York] Keep reading »

One Dress, 3 Covers, Big Drama

Miu Miu has some explaining to do. Somehow, the exact same dress from the Fall 2010 runway just appeared on the three different magazine covers, meaning the editors at British Vogue, British Elle, AND W are none too pleased! Now technically, there are a few variations in the design: while the colors are different, the style is the same, but the coincidence is making editors and PR girls squirm. Here’s the breakdown: Eva Mendes graces the July 2010 issue of W in a yellow version of the Fall 2010 design, Freja Beha Erichsen dons a tangerine style for the August 2010 issue of British Vogue, and Lily Allen sports a lilac variate for the cover of British Elle. The interesting thing is, public relations offices work very hard so that this situation never occurs, taking great care to send different options to magazines. Somehow either the system broke down or editors just were beyond obsessed with this one dress; one thing’s for sure — this dress is going to sell out in no time. [Guardian] Keep reading »

A First Look At Janie Bryant’s “Mad Men” Collection

Though Janie Bryant’s “Mad Men”-inspired collection for QVC isn’t set to launch until the end of September, a few preview pictures just hit the internet in order to fuel our desire to dress like Betty Draper. Of the five items, there’s a selection of two jackets — one of which is reversible — and a variety of accessories, all ranging in price from $25.50 to $107. Between the pill box hat, scarf, jacket, and purse, one thing’s for sure: Janie’s already infused a healthy amount of animal print in the line. And while the selection doesn’t include the most original clothing items we’ve seen when it comes to ’50s-inspired design, it’s certainly easier to buy new rather than deal with the hassle of cleaning that goes into purchasing vintage. Check out more pictures after the jump! [NYMag.com] Keep reading »

What’s On Your Fashion Bucket List?

After seeing the film “The Bucket List,” I got to thinking about everything I want to accomplish while on this earth. Skydiving, seeing all the wonders of the world, living abroad for over a year: it’s all on my list. But then I started to think about how this could apply to everything in life. Gastronomically, there are tons of delicacies I want to enjoy, like pho in Vietnam, as there are restaurants I want to dine in, like Per Se in NYC. I want to consume all of literature’s classics, cross off all the movies on the AFI 100, and dinner with Anthony Bourdain could quite possibly make me swoon for an entire lifetime. Given my love for fashion, I couldn’t help but apply the same goals to my wardrobe … Keep reading »
