The Anti-Taxidermy Deer Head Vase

I’m not really into taxidermy — stuffed beasts sort of freak me out — but this deer head vase reminds me of hunting wall mounts in a good way. Hanging a 3-D decoration adds an extra element to any room, and how awesome is it that this animal not only isn’t dead but serves as a container for vegetarian-friendly cut flowers? Bambi would certainly approve. [$70, Charles & Marie] Keep reading »

See-Through Dresses Abound!

Marina Abramovic’s “The Artist is Present” closed at New York City’s Museum of Modern Art earlier this week — which our Amelia wanted me to say she “loved, loved, loved, loved, loved” — and Givenchy hosted a star-studded celebration fêting the performance artist. The celebrities in attendance seemed to think that since the exhibit featured nudity, they should wear something revealing, and see-through dresses were the trend of the evening, with Christina Ricci, Liv Tyler, and Cassie all wearing them. What’s with all the peep-show clothes lately? Keep reading »

Would You Keep Your Legs Cool In A Pair Of Sheer Pants?

The other day, while walking down the street, I noticed (without trying) that the woman in front of me was wearing shorts sheer enough that her undies were completely visible. The shorts were so transparent there was absolutely no mistaking she knew what she was showing the world. Sheer clothes are big for summer, and translucent bottoms seems to be a bit of a trend, as Refinery29 noted at least seven companies that offer sheer pants. I guess if you’re going to wear pants during the summer, gauzy is the way to go. But what do you do about underwear — put it on display? What do you think about these practically transparent pants?

Did A Home Hair-Dyeing Disaster Cost Megan Fox Her “Transformers 3″ Role?

Hair is a big deal in Hollywood, and if we listen to the rumors on RadarOnline.com, Megan Fox may have lost her role in “Transformers 3” due to a home hair-coloring mishap. Megan supposedly tried to dye her hair black the day before meeting with Paramount studio execs. Her locks apparently looked so bad that they sent her to Sally Hershberger’s Los Angeles salon, where five people worked on Megan’s hair after opening the salon especially for her. “It cost the studio thousands of dollars to transform her black hair to minky brown,” said a source. “In Hollywood, a box hair color can ruin a career.” This seems a bit harsh and dramatic to us, considering that hair colors and styles aren’t too difficult to change, but that’s Hollywood for ya! Have you ever had a disastrous at-home hair-coloring experience? [RadarOnline.com] Keep reading »
