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 results. Now, I have to hand it to the girls: They didn’t do such a bad job, considering the circumstances. However, I do have a couple of problems with the gallery of images … Keep reading »

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 them out of bed, that’s for sure.

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 don’t have time to get a facial every couple of days.”

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 addicted, like a sex addict or whatever, and I did all of these photographs because it was new for me. I’ve grown out of that phase, which was coming out of working through live [sic] and just tripping out.”

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] Keep reading »

Sneak Peek: Lindsay Lohans’s 6126 Collection Lookbook

Remember how we told you that La Lohan was expanding her 6126 leggings line and adding more merch to the lineup? Pics of the fall 2010 lookbook have surfaced, and, well, it is what is, right? We’ve got thigh-high boots (naturally), plenty of black mini-skirts, and one extremely odd-looking, asymmetrical, metallic leather vest layered over a sateen collar and trousers, after the jump! Thoughts, anyone? Bueller? Keep reading »

The Top 10 Most Fashionable Famous Ladies

fashion forward celebs jpg
It’s no secret that celebrities are currently having a love affair with fashion. And while it seems like these days, every famous person has their fingers all up in that pie, there is a big difference between the Kardashians collaborating with Bebe and stars like Tilda Swinton or even Lady Gaga, who have legitimate relationships with and serve as muses to designers whose names are hard to pronounce and wield serious influence. Here are the 10 celebs who have real fashion chops.

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. But if this unidentified French fashion expert quoted in the article, which recently ran in Rodung Sinmun, is to be believed–”Kim Jong-Il mode which is now spreading expeditiously worldwide is something unprecedented in the world’s history,”–well, who are we to argue? It is what it is. And just like fellow fashionista Anna Wintour, he does wear sunnies everywhere. Yeeps, we think Mobama better step up her game! [Telegraph] Keep reading »

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?
