How Bikram Yoga Is Making Me One Of “Those People”

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…

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.

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…

Light My (Earth-Friendly) Fire

Ginger Fig sounds like a pretty sweet smell to begin with, but what makes this candle even more appealing is the fact that it’s green, too. The container is made from a reclaimed wine bottle and, once your candle burns out, can be washed and reused. The candle itself is made with pure, non-GMO soy…

Move Over Mink: It’s All About Rat Fur

Pardon me while I throw up in my mouth a little, but Vanity Fair‘s VF Blog reports that nutria, 20-pound river-dwelling rats that tend to thrive in Louisiana, are making a splash (!) when it comes to fur-trimmed menswear items this fall. Cute! And designers are already queuing up to put a super sexy spi…

Go Easy, Girls: 7 Simple Bridal Beauty Tips

Maybe it’s because in my former life I was a beauty editor, but this time of year, my bride-to-be friends start developing this strange habit of asking me to do their wedding hair and makeup. It’s not that I have any special training whatsoever or that I’m a particularly talented makeup artist or hair stylist–if…

When It Comes To Shoes, How Much Does Size Matter?

Today I spotted an item in The New York Post and could instantly feel her pain: Katy Perry attended some party this weekend and was so determined to wear her new Jimmy Choo Zap shoes, above (P.S. they’re $2,495 — if you manage to work your way up the waiting list), that she hobbled around…

Rain, Rain Go Away

These April showers just won’t seem to let up, and until we can bust out the spring sandals, an umbrella is going to be our must-have accessory. We love this option because it manages to be cute and creative and totally understated at the same time. Now if only we could find a nice pair…

Watch The New Maybelline Spokesmodel’s Audition Tape!

She’s Brazilian (aren’t they all?), she’s gorgeous, and she’s Maybelline‘s newly minted spokesmodel. Meet Lisalla Montenegro, who, according to a company rep, “exudes a natural, fresh yet slightly feline beauty.” Well, good for her! And you’ve heard of model cards, right? Someone dug up this video, which must have landed on a bigwig-at-Maybelline’s desk,…

Redheaded Girl Dyes Hair To Escape Death Threats

OK, this is just absurd: Nicole Nagington, a 12-year-old resident of Telford, England, admits that she’s used to being teased for having red hair. But this school year, the bullying escalated to the point where the girl, who also wears a hearing aid, was forced to drop out of school and be tutored at home.

Cheapskate: The Beauty Edition

Happy Friday! It’s a special bonus edition of our favorite style column and yours, Cheapskate, this time with makeup. See, yesterday I was in an eyeliner crunch (uh, beauty emergency?) and ran to the drugstore to pick up a replacement. $10, $7.99 … sheesh when did drugstore brands get so expensive!? While I am finicky…

The Lederhosen Look Is So Hot (& Sweaty!) For Spring

It’s a trend we’ve naysayed here on the site before (see our “Crazy Spring Trends To Avoid” post ), but the fashion gods have spoken, and the leather shorts trend has officially caught on. While we’ve seen some interesting options from the houses of Chloe, Pucci and Alexander Wang, department store buyers are ordering u…
