This Wolf Trend Has Really Taken Off

Judging from oh, say, all those three wolf moon shirts that keep popping up all over the place, wolves are (still) hot, hot, hot right now! They must be if international “it” girl Daisy Lowe wore this fetching (har) hat to Rihanna’s “it” concert in London this evening. Being complete sheep (ha), we scoured the web in search of this cap, because we simply had to have it. So the bad news is we stumbled upon a few sort-of-but-not-really similar versions at Ecrater and, um, the Minnesota Historical Society, but go figure, they’re waaay too scary-looking. The good news is we finally started to wonder why the hell we were looking for a hat like this in the first place and stopped doing so immediately. Whew, that was a close one. Keep reading »

Naomi Campbell Has A Kind Of Awesome Side

For once, controversial supermodel Naomi Campbell is making headlines for something other than cell phone beatdowns. I don’t know how long she’s been involved in charity work (maybe it’s been overshadowed by her more notorious exploits), but evidently she visits Africa often and is the global ambassador for the White Ribbon Alliance, an international coalition for maternal health, which is holding its annual general meeting in Tanzania, where a woman dies in childbirth every hour. To raise money, she helped organize the Fashion for Relief charity featuring local designers, and gave a talk from the runway, which she used as a platform for another cause as well:

“Where do we see a woman of color in an advert? It’s quite blatant. There’s definitely space for more black models but has there been enough effort? It was getting better but it’s slipped back this year. Women of color who have had a great experience in life need to share their experiences with others. The world is not made up of blonde hair and blue eyes. We need to share ourselves.”

Maybe she hired some spin doctors to fix up her image, but we like this new direction for Naomi, as crusader of change for the fashion industry and doing important charity work. Hey, it worked for Angelina. [Daily Mail] Keep reading »

Lady Gaga’s Architectural Digest

It ain’t no thang to spot Lady Gaga wearing crazy headgear or anything, but the one she wore at the 30th Anniversary Gala of MOCA (Museum of Contemporary Art) was notable for being designed by none other than uber-architect Frank Gehry. Now that’s an interesting fashion collaboration. [L.A., 11/14/09] Keep reading »

Hair Model Citizen: Sophia Loren Knows What Works

Film and beauty icon Sophia Loren won’t go changin’: She’s currently promoting a new film, “Nine,” and stepped out looking fabulous today. We were most struck that despite the fact that she has not changed her hairstyle in a few decades, it’s still totally working out for her. Huh. To get the look, you’ll need to find a hairdresser who still knows what a “curl and set” means. (Good luck with that one.) Basically, it’s the practice of rolling up your entire head of hair in curlers and either sitting under a huge industrial-sized hairdryer or just sleeping in them (ouch!). We suspect it involves a lot of hairspray, too. Sounds like a job for L’Oreal Elnett! [NYC, 11/16/09] Keep reading »

Leo Spends $1,400 On Wrinkle Creams

This week Leonardo DiCaprio got “busted” laying down some serious coinage for a variety of skincare products, including eye creams, toner, face masks and anti-wrinkle potions, at the Blue Mercury boutique in Los Angeles. While his reps insisted that he bought them for a lady friend (Lindsay Lohan mayhaps?), what dude buys wrinkle creams for his girlfriend? And a fellow shopper claimed he was asking the salespeople an awful lot of questions about how the formulas worked. We’re not surprised–it’s not like guys are immune to the pressure to look young in Hollywood–and, like so many of us, Leo continues to grow older. Sigh. But, considering most dermatologists think the majority of cosmetic anti-wrinkle creams are total B.S., we think he could’ve saved himself and his fine lines a lot of money. I mean, has anyone here found a wrinkle cream that actually works? What’s the most you’ve ever spent on a mad beauty-product shopping spree? [Examiner] Keep reading »
