Let’s get one thing straight: I am not an “exercise person.” In fact, if I were dating some smart, hilarious, darling and hot dude who was otherwise perfect but had a penchant for enthusing about his early morning gym regimen, I probably wouldn’t call him again. Overtly healthy people annoy me, maybe because they have an irksome way of making me feel guilty that my favorite leisure activities involve a glass of wine and a Parliament Light.

So Punky Brewster, dude! Come to think of it, Mr. Theroux isn’t the only star in Hollywood who should fire his stylist. Click through for what not to wear, the male celeb edition. [Huffington Post]

Pill Chic–Cool Or Just Plain Messed Up?

When it comes to fashion, I adore the subversive. Black leather and studs, gun print dresses, safety pins, you name it — I’ve worn it and loved it. So it’s perhaps hypocritical of me, but I have to draw the line at this “cheeky” pharmaceutical trend. Keep reading »

The 5 Most Ridiculous Jobs In Fashion

Depending on your point of view, you could say every job in fashion is, at its heart, not just a little bit silly. But believe it or not, there are oh-so-many levels of ridiculousity. After reading the news about Rachel Bilson being named Sunglass Hut’s new (and first of its kind) “Eyewear Ambassador” — “I can’t say what makes me a good style adviser for them, but I am a huge sunglasses addict,” she told WWD — we started thinking about other funny and/or odd fashion jobs. They are, of course, presented after the jump! Keep reading »
