It’s Cool To Sell Padded Bras For Children, Right?

Um, yeah, not so much. In the strongest case of "What were they thinking?!?" ever, British clothing chain Primark decided to yank hot pink and gold star-printed padded bikinis off its shelves after facing pressure from child protection advocates who felt the products sexualized children. Gee willickers, ya think?

Is There A Right Age Or A Wrong Age To Get Married?

Things that make us sad/angry: the Vanilla Gorilla, animal abuse, "The Price of Beauty," American tourist shorts/huge white sneakers combos, "Bridget Jones Fear." What, you may ask, does the latter refer to? Over in Jolly Old, a new marriage survey found that women feel the ideal age to get married is 26, a…

32 Signs You’re Not A Hipster Anymore

I'm just gonna go ahead and come out and say it: I used to be a card-carrying hipster. And back in the day, I had a lot of fun with that. For one, the group wasn't as universally loathed as they are now. If you can even believe it, kids, it was actually considered kind…

Britney: Before & After Airbrushing, Photoshop Madness

Seems like the visuals here just speak for themselves, but we'll give you a little context: Apparently, Britney Spears wanted to reach out to her fans by releasing un-altered images from an old Candie's fashion shoot.

How To Get It On With An Uncircumcised Dude

Back in the day, as single girls, my roommate and I were kind of obsessed with uncircumcised guys. Not that we had encountered any, but we just wondered what the hell we would actually do if, say, we met a fine young fellow who wasn't cut and how we would handle the "situation." (Ah youth,…

Chicks Apply Makeup With No Mirror, But Why Are They Topless?

Vice magazine recently ran a rather clever beauty story in their March issue (one that I missed because my ridic hipster days are long over, God bless 'em). They asked several American Apparel models "real girls" to apply their makeup without mirrors -- like, ZOMG! -- and had well-respected photographer Richard Kern snap the…

Pretty Pretty Panties

We'd love to give our sad drawer full of worn-out granny panties a designer makeover, but that would be fairly expensive. Thank God for online outlet stores, where we can find gorgeous, silk floral briefs that originally cost $130 at a fraction of the price. These aren't just pretty and comfy-looking; no one would kick…

Quotable: Fergie On Being Called “Fugly”

“It has hurt me in the past when people say things like how ‘fugly’ I am or how horrible I look. I’ve had to learn not to give it such a high priority in life…. Look, when you’re trying to juggle all of this in your life, sometimes you’re not going to look perfect. I…

Quotable: Is Terry Richardson A Sex Addict?

"I don't think I started having sex until I quit drinking, because when I was drinking and taking drugs, I preferred getting loaded to having sex. I was a late bloomer, because once I got sober I was like, 'Wow, sex is awesome, this is crazy,' and then it became like a drug. You become…

Suri Slips Into Something A Little More Comfortable

Suri Cruise may be known for sporting some pretty grown-up, high-heeled kicks, but even famous kids need to give their arches a break. The best remedy for sore feet? A nice warm Epsom salt soak and a pair of cushy bunny slippers. [NYC, 4/8/10]…

Meet Unlikely Fashion Icon, Kim Jong-II

Here's how to make a fashion trend "happen" (not): A Communist party press release newspaper names the North Korean leader as a leading international fashion icon. Wha!? Known for his hyper-utilitarian grey uniform, we're not sure how many folks are copping this trend, though it's true that the military look is rather hot for spring.

This Man Wears Way More Makeup Than You Do

Adam Lambert doesn't just paint on his eyeliner and skintight leather pants all willy-nilly. This lovely young man has a shrewd sartorial strategy that involves two different looks that can be altered for various occasions: There's "Rocker" and "Dandy," but make no mistake, both are GLAM, got it?
