Homewrecker Kim
Amber Rose called Kim Kardashian a homewrecker in an interview. Read More »

The Kardashian Klan really leaves no personal stone unturned — we know virtually everything about them. The latest? Kim Kardashian divulged to Oprah during an interview on “Oprah’s Next Chapter” that she asked her momager Kris to put her on birth control when she was just 14. It seems Kim had had a boyfriend for a couple years at that point and told her mom, “I think I’m ready” to have sex. So, rather than do what most moms would — freak out, ground her for life, put locks on her bedroom door, etc. — Kris took her to get birth control. (My roommate just exclaimed, “so that’s where she got her ass.”) Onnnnnnnn the one hand, it’s nice that she and Kris had the kind of relationship where they could openly talk about sex and dating with one another. But then again, girl was 14. That seems a little bit young to be so permissive about sex.

Personally, my mother and I never really talked about that stuff — which is probably also not the norm. But what about you? Did you ask your mother (or father) to go on birth control? At what age? [Oprah] Keep reading »

Lotta Look: Kim Kardashian
A lot of fur, especially. Read More »

I’m sure Anna Wintour is having a nasty hissy fit that her brand would deign to be associated with the likes of Kimmy Kardashian, but nevertheless, here it is, the L’Uomo Vogue cover featuring the perhaps maybe Ms. Future Kanye West. Because Vogue is cheeky like that, they’ve done the cover paparazzi style. [Vogue]

A Life-Size Dollhouse

The White House was not amused by Ty's dolls of the First Kids. Read More »

Did you force your dad to build you a dollhouse when you were a kid? Because I did. He built me one from scratch, but we never got around to painting it, or buying it any furniture. So instead, my Barbies lived in a very, very minimalist Victorian house. It’s nothing like the life-size dollhouse that Canadian artist Heather Benning created in Saskatchewan, Canada. She took an abandoned farmhouse and transformed it into the picture of pastel doll perfection, complete with rooms full of vintage furniture and pastel paint. [Stylist]

The Latest H&M Collab? Maison Martin Margiela

Marni For H&M
Thirty choice pieces from the collection. Read More »

Boy, are we stoked! H&M just announced that its latest designer collaboration will be with Belgian designer Maison Martin Margiela. Margiela, who along with avant garde designers Ann Demeulemeester and Dries Van Noten made up the Antwerp Six, comes from a more radical place than a lot of H&M’s past collaborators. Margiela is definitely more of a “designer’s designer,” so it’s no surprise that H&M’s creative advisor Margareta van den Bosch is stoked. “Maison Martin Margiela is one of the most important and influential fashion houses of the past three decades. I am so excited by this radical collaboration which will give fashion lovers around the world the chance to wear special pieces by MAISON MARTIN MARGIELA. This collaboration will be a great and memorable fashion moment“, she said.

Expect the collaboration to launch mid-November, and – Eureka! – will be available online. In the meantime, check out some more of Margiela’s designs after the jump! Keep reading »
