Hailee Steinfeld Doesn’t Think She’s Too Young For Miu Miu

“It’s kind of funny because when I was younger I did a lot of print and then I went more into acting so I had a little deja vu when I went back to it, doing the whole modeling thing again. I had such an amazing time filming especially working with Bruce Weber. … Honestly I think the best part about this collection and the campaign is the fact that it’s so sophisticated – it’s timeless. And I think for younger girls like me it works. It feels appropriate.”

— Actress Hailee Steinfeld on why she doesn’t think she’s too young to represent a luxury fashion brand. We continue to respectfully disagree. [Fashionista] Keep reading »

We All Scream For Ice Cream!

Ice cream and summer go together like keg stands and frat parties. And when we heard there was a way that you could actually make soft-serve ice cream at home, we thought it might be too good to be true. But the reviews on this powder pink soft-serve maker from Cuisinart say it’s the real deal. The ice cream takes only a half hour to make, which is great for those of us who have short attention spans and impatient bellies (show of hands?) and you can add virtually any flavor or ingredient. Basil peppermint in a waffle cone, anyone?

A Douche With A Douche

The dudes over at Slacktory used Photoshop to remove the iPhones from people’s self-portraits and replaced them with a variety of random objects. In this case, this guy’s cellphone was ‘shopped out and replaced with a lovely package of Summer’s Eve. If the douche fits… (Warning, the link isn’t entirely SFW.) [Slacktory] Keep reading »

Beyonce Chooses Indie Designers For Album’s Fashion Spreads

Imagine you’re a fresh-faced lil’ college student at FIT, and Beyonce’s — yes, Beyonce’s — creative director, Jenke-Ahmed Tailly, gets in touch and says the Divine Miss B wants to wear one of your creations in the folds of her next album. That’s what just happened to Lleah Rae, whose yellow ruffled dress Beyonce sports in the gatefold of her newest record 4. In fact, Bey chose a selection of lesser known designers for the deluxe version of her album, including 27-year-old designer Maxime Simoens and Dutch designer Jan Taminiau. Bey’s apparently moved on from her mom Tina’s House of Deréon line (thank God) and is focused on designers who create unique, quality pieces. Explains Tailly: “Each song really has a different personality so we decided to do the cover like an editorial for a magazine, with each song having its own style.” Digging it!

How To Wear: Feminine Accordion Pleats

Everybody — from Hailee Steinfeld to Keira Knightley to Sienna Miller — is doing it: the feminine accordian pleat. These pretty little pleats are much more flattering than the big boxy ones that we are so used to seeing, and they come in ethereal and flowy fabrics such as chiffon and silk. Check out some of these star styles — from mini- to maxi — and consider trying the pleat yourself. [New York Girl Style] Keep reading »

Lady Gaga Just Threw On A Few Old Things

For as wild as she is, it seems that Lady Gaga sometimes gets bored of being Lady Gaga. And that’s when she really pulls out all the stops — the lace face, the shower curtain dress, the latex top, and the large and unnecessary fan — all of which she wore to a RADIO appearance yesterday. A radio appearance. I’d love to see her try her hand at crafting or baking. I’m sure she could whip up the most amazing edible quilt ever. Keep reading »

The Good, The Bad & The WTF At The “Friends With Benefits” Premiere

What’s with celebrities and red? It doesn’t seem like a very summery color, but I suppose that when you make a rom-com, you’re sort of contractually obligated to wear the color of love or something? That’s gotta be why three of the famous ladies at last night’s premiere of “Friends With Benefits” were decked in red. After the jump, we take a look at their crimson frocks, and all the rest.
