Shopping Guide: 10 Juicy Jumpsuits

jumpsuits 072511 m jpg
The right jumpsuit is all about proportion, fabric and accessories. I generally, personally, don’t wear them because I’m very hippy and finding a JS that fits over my hips and doesn’t look like it’s suffocating the lower portion of my frame is difficult. But if this isn’t a struggle for you, then please, go right ahead and jumpsuit away. But for the love of Evan Dando, DO NOT get a jumpsuit in denim. Not unless you’ve uncovered a time machine that will transport you back to a VW bus in 1972. Also, remember, you are not Michelle Pfeiffer in “Scarface,” so not cocaine for you, but please do feel free to channel her jumpsuit badassery. Thanks.

Alexa Chung Has Way More Jobs Than You

The world keeps trying to make Brit model/It-Girl Alexa Chung happen stateside. Chung previously hosted MTV’s midday chat show, “It’s On With Alexa Chung,” and will soon be seen in the new PBS series “Thrift America,” where she travels around the U.S. looking for hidden thrift and vintage treasures (the fact that this is a job that someone can have makes me unbelievably jealous).

Heidi Klum Forces Tim Gunn To Run

“There’s a girl who learned how to sew just four months before coming on the show … [And Tim Gunn will be running] well, I just wanted to see him run … it was very entertaining to say the least!”

Emma Watson Is The Latest Celeb Turned Designer

Now that the “Harry Potter” kids no longer have a bazillion dollar franchise to support, Emma Watson has got some free time, and it seems she’s opted to pick up some work as a fashion designer. No longer content to merely serve as a model/muse for Burberry, Watson is said to be launching her own line, and has been taking cutting, sewing and design classes, presumably at Brown University’s sister school, RISD. According to an unnamed source, “Emma wants to challenge herself creatively. She’s obsessed with art at the moment She’s already designed a line of T-shirts and wants to expand her skills to create bespoke evening wear.” So she’ll join Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Victoria Beckham, Jennifer Lopez, Gwen Stefani, Lauren Conrad, Heidi Montag and Avril Lavigne, among others, as model/actress/muse/designer. Phew. That’s a long resume. [ONTD] Keep reading »

In fact, he successfully petitioned the Swedish government to classify his heavy metal obsession as a disability. Now, thanks to an in-depth psychological analysis, the 42-year-old part-time dishwasher receives state benefits and has been granted a special dispensation to play his music at work and attend heavy metal shows during scheduled work hours as long as he makes up the time at a later date.

Jewelry With Real Green Appeal

We eat plants and live with them in our homes, so why shouldn’t we wear them as well? This jewelry designer thought plants were perfectly fashionable, and created wearable planters — tiny, miniature planters worn on necklaces and brooches that can be filled with the sprout, a succulent, or a flower of your choice. The planters are made from 3D printers and can be painted any color you choose, too! What a way to create a movable garden of earthly delights. [$30, Etsy] Keep reading »
