Sure, her husband Keith Urban is stoked, but how much cleavage is too much, even when a red carpet is involved? Nicole Kidman looked stunning at the CMAs, of course, but those poor girls look like they’re struggling for survival. [Nashville, 11/11/09] Keep reading »
We don’t mean to sound harsh here, but it’s probably wise for Kristen Stewart to buckle down and get a stylist, or at least replace the one she’s presently working with, if she has one. She’s been looking a bit off at “New Moon” events all week, but when it comes to this getup, we can remain silent no more. Look closely at this very odd dress and notice the ill fit, unflattering silhouette and see-through panels that reveal her panty line and side boobs. What in the hell is going on here? Yes, the sheer trend is, like, a thing now, but it’s definitely one of those proceed-with-caution trends. We’re not even sure The Fashion Peacekeepers could find anything positive to say about this frock. It’s just puzzling. Keep reading »
“If you don’t like something, don’t buy it. Don’t buy the magazine if you don’t like what it says. If you don’t like the image a brand is putting out, don’t buy it. What I really don’t agree with is people who complain about it but still support it. You’re giving your power away. If people don’t want skinny models, stop buying the magazine with the skinny model, and believe me those magazines will change fast. It’s business.”
– Supermodel Cindy Crawford recommends boycotting fashion mags that only use skeletal models, making her Conde Nast/Hearst/Hachette Fillipacci enemy number one. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
What’s more stimulating than ogling celeb photos? Snaps of the rich and famous before they were! Modelinia has posted a few from Heidi Klum’s album and now we know she is not a natural blonde and, like so many of us plebeians, suffered major fashion missteps back in the day, such as tucking a pastel, geometric-patterned shirt into a pair of yellow sweatpants. (Been there, girl!) Also, and no judgment here, whatsoever, is that a trailer park? Didn’t even know they had those in Germany. A few more, after the jump! Keep reading »
Hey, we all have our off-days, which may be the only explanation for this NY Times Style section piece about how women are like, really, really into “Gossip Girl” star Blake Lively‘s hair.
“In the 1990s, there was the ‘Rachel,’ named after Jennifer Aniston’s character on the TV show ‘Friends.’ Before the Rachel it was the ‘Farrah’ — the flipped out, flouncy hairstyle worn by Farrah Fawcett. Now, it’s Ms. Lively … whose tresses are coveted: extra long, ultra-shiny blond with a mussed-up tussle frolicking through the ends.”
Really? That’s quite a statement, guys. Here’s another quote on the subject for you, from our own Lily Q: “People need to calm down.” After all, there’s nothing more to the look than really long, slightly wavy, unbrushed hair, and I’m not jealous because that’s what I’ve got and most days it goes in a bun. Their proof that women are just dying to copy this hairstyle? Well, there’s the hard cold fact that a Google search of “Blake Lively Hair” produces 713,000 results (at their press time). Wow! At our press time “Angelina Jolie Hair” was at 5,160,000, Jennifer Aniston at 2,290,000 and Blake Lively’s own costar Leighton Meester beat her at 839,000. Just sayin’. The other “evidence” of this phenomenon is that Blake HERSELF admits that stylish women like “Vogue staffers” routinely approach her and compliment her hair. Honey, we know Vogue staffers, and that definitely doesn’t sound like any of them, unless they were being facetious and mocking you behind your back. Of course, the Style section could have just run an article about how women will always want princessy blond hair. That might have made more sense, no? [NY Times] Keep reading »
