Iris Apfel Thinks We’re All Disgusting

“You can’t try to be somebody you’re not; that’s not style. If someone says, ‘Buy this, you’ll be stylish,’ you won’t be stylish because you won’t be you. You have to learn who you are first and that’s painful… Now when I walk down Fifth Avenue in the summertime I just want to throw up. It seems that the fatter and uglier people are, the fewer clothes they wear. The shorts and flip-flops and tight jeans on butts that go from here to Poughkeepsie. I always say they should put people in jail for wearing clothes like that. Especially stretch jeans over size 10 — they should be outlawed. Ten years ago people were starting to look like slobs in New York, now it’s an epidemic.”

– Sassy old lady and style guru Iris Apfel doesn’t mince words. True story: Lindsay Lohan once asked Apfel to be her style guru, and she turned La Lohan down. “I can’t tell people how to have style. No amount of money can buy you style. It’s just instinctive.” [Telegraph]

What part of this amazing “Pizza Party” rap from Fly Guys do I not love? Trick question: I love all of it. ALL OF IT. Please, why doesn’t every rap song reference Papa John’s crack butter sauce? “I got pies on pies on pies. Pies for days,” say the Fly Guys. Better believe it. [Buzzfeed]

Kanye West’s histrionic lyrics and “Saved By the Bell”‘s moronic episodes; two things you’d never thought see mesh. And yet! The genius behind the new site, Kanye’d By the Bell manages to find striking parallels between the show and the controversial rapper. The site’s uncanny ability to perfectly combine “SBTB” screen shots with Kanye lyrics is almost frightening. More “Kanye’d By The Bell”s after the jump. [Kanye'd By the Bell] Keep reading »

8 Lesbians Who Used To Be Straight

So, apparently Frisky office style icon Jenna Lyons is getting divorced from hubby Vincent Mazeau, after 10 years of marriage — and is rumored to be in a relationship with a woman. Says the rumor mill, the woman Jenna’s in love with is apparently also in the fashion biz, though we’re not sure who it is. Either way, that lady’s pretty lucky — think of the access she now has to Jenna’s sure-to-be-incredible closet! [Page Six]

If the rumors are true, Jenna is not alone in discovering she has a love jones for the ladies after having relationships with me. Here are seven other famous women who were a little late to the Isle of Lesbos.

What To Wear On A Roadtrip

This past weekend, I did something really weird. I drove with several friends to Toronto on Friday night and came back on Sunday. NBD, except Toronto is a 10-hour trip from NYC, so about a third of my weekend was spent in a car. The trip taught me a lot: boys in punk bands talk exclusively about other punk bands and horror movies; Sheetz is the best convenience store-cum-gas-station chain on the planet; and jeans and boots are really not that comfortable after a few hours in the car. Don’t make my mistake! While you won’t necessarily be able to get your friends to shut up about John Carpenter movies (and really, why would you?), you can plan a better driving outfit than mine.   Keep reading »

Okay, not really. But wouldn’t it be awesome if this clearly-Photoshopped image of Big Willie was real? I think everything in life can be debated via the opening rhymes of  “The Fresh Prince of Bel Air,” don’t you? Carlton for the rebuttal?

The Good, The Bad & The WTF: The Q Awards

This past weekend, Brit music rag Q held its annual awards fest. There were new popsters (Jessie J) and old legends (Siouxsie Sioux) wandering around, and lots and lots of bad fashion. Let’s take a look, shall we?

Halloween Inspiration Board: Pregnant Jessica Simpson

Is Jessica Simpson pregnant, or did she just eat a really big burrito? At this point, her baby bump has gone way beyond speculative — and unless she’s using her body as a new type of pillow storage device, J.Simps is pretty far along. In honor of her soon-to-be babe, we’ve come up with a Simpson-rific Halloween costume. You’ll need a baby bump, a baby (in order to help envision what her spawn with Eric Johnson might look like), and a mini-football — Eric’s a former NFL player, after all. If you really want to take the costume next level, walk around with a can of tuna fish, and ask everyone you meet ”is what I have chicken or fish?” Find out what you’ll need, after the jump.

Oh Beyonce! Why Are You Hanging With Terry Richardson?

Beyonce Hearts Gaga
Will the two collab again? Let's hope! Read More »

Bey, we’re kind of disappointed. We tend to think you “run the world,” so when we saw this pic with Terry Richardson we were a bit dismayed. In case you didn’t know, Bey, Richardson is a noted model fondler and generally creepy dude, who thinks nothing of getting a bit too up close and personal with the girls he shoots. In fact, several models have spoken out against his unprofessional and lecherous behavior.

So, Bey, what gives? You’re pretty much the biggest star in the world, so I’m sure you wield enough power to tell Harper’s Bazaar – for whom Terry shot you — that you’d prefer to work with another photographer. Ah well, there’s always next time. [Fashionista]
