Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
Profile for Catherine Strawn
The Kate Moss for Topshop video aimed at promoting the spring/summer collection didn’t reveal much — besides Kate’s bum. But this morning we saw photos of the entire collection, and, as usual, Kate delivers an eclectic mix of vintage-inspired clothes, from a 1920s-style bias-cut maxi dress to luxe nightwear featuring lace paneling. We couldn’t help but notice that long, white gowns figure prominently into the collection (maybe Kate has weddings on the brain?), and if you’re in the market for a white dress but don’t want to spend thousands, you might find these dresses appealing, as they’re priced between $170 and $370 and hit stores May 20. Plus, the feather capelet would be a nice touch on top of any wedding dress.
Baseball may be America’s pastime, but growing gross facial hair seems to be the preferred hobby of Major League Baseball players. For reasons unknown to us, goatees and flavor savers reign supreme in ballparks around the country. Click through to see what which baseball players have facial hair we’d like to shave off (if they haven’t already done it themselves).
For last night’s party in Cannes celebrating fancy jewelry company Chopard’s 150th anniversary, Marion Cotillard paired a metallic jumpsuit with a French twist that wound its way up her head, ending in a bang-like bun. What do you think of Marion’s rockabilly hairdo? I think the front part resembles a croissant or some other delicious French pastry. Keep reading »

Dressing in red, white, and blue is easy and expected; wearing our national bird shows true patriotism. [$8, Walmart] Keep reading »
Mannequins are meant to represent us, because it would be, you know, inconvenient for a real human to stand around all day, displaying clothes. But these substitute humans are often strange and occasionally scary. Click through for 10 interesting mannequins.

The Cannes Film Festival continued over the weekend, and so did the glamorous red carpet looks. “Blutiful,” “You Will Meet A Tall Dark Stranger,” and “La Princesse de Montpensier” were among the films that premiered, with Naomi Watts and Evangeline Lilly looking amazing in multiple outfits apiece.
When I’ve shelled out big bucks for beauty products, I’d like them to last as long as possible. But what can you do besides turn bottles upside down when products get down to the end? Brokelyn compiled a list of suggestions for how to make items in your medicine cabinet go the distance. While some were extreme (we don’t think we’d want to use a 17-cent disposable razor for a whole year anyway), we’re going to follow the four suggestions after the jump. [Brokelyn] Keep reading »
Today, I’m going to put an end to one of my worst habits. Thankfully, I don’t smoke, so I don’t have to worry about ditching a nicotine addiction. No, my habit isn’t so obvious; in fact, I’ve been doing it for years without noticing. I buy clothes with tags that read “Dry Clean Only” — but not anymore (if I can help it). Keep reading »
