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?

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.
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.

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.

“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 »
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 »
