Hailee Steinfeld is 14 years old. She starred in “True Grit” and she’s also now the face of Miu Miu’s newest series of ads. That’s great, I suppose, but SERIOUSLY WHY WHY WHY can’t we get some grown ass women starring in fashion ads? Style blog Fashionista lauds the campaign for its minimal use of makeup and Photoshopping. Well, you know, when you’re dealing with practically prepubescent skin, you’re not going to have that many problems, now are you? What’s next? Second grade Prada models? Toddler Thierry Mugler campaigns (somewhere in a marketing meeting someone is pitching this right now)? Miu Miu and the rest, start showing your clothes on real women — don’t condescend to us with teens, please. Keep reading »
Hey, hipsters aren’t like me and you. Regular housing is just so confining and restrictive. And that’s why some particularly ambitious members of the hipster class have taken to finding alternative means of shelter. Like tanks. Yes, tanks. Could anything be further from the hipster mentality of ambivalent permissiveness, freedom to wear stupid hats and listen to ear-damaging noise records? And yet these Burning Man hippies have re-appropriated a tank as their own peace and love living quarters. Well, what do you think of that? [Details] Keep reading »

Cameron Diaz — she’s a smokin’ hot babe who just doesn’t seem to age. It’s been, like, 15 years since “There’s Something About Mary” came out, and you’d still think she was just some hot surfer girl off the beach who accidentally happened to show up on set one day. We can’t wait to see her new movie “Bad Teacher,” in which she’s reunited on-screen with ex-BF Justin Timberlake, this weekend. So, with that in mind, we’ve taken a stroll through Diaz’s style hits and misses over the years.
So, Banana Republic wised up and created an entire collection inspired by “Mad Men,” in collaboration with its costume designer Janey Bryant, but we’re not entirely sure we buy it. See, as far as we’re concerned, the tailored, conservative looks don’t seem to differ much from the standard BR fare. Could it be they’ve simply repurposed some of their regular designs under a new name? Would Peggy or Betty or Joan be caught in any of these outfits, really? Click through to see some of the looks and then tell us what you think in the comments!
Donatella Versace–the most tanned woman in fashion and pretty much anything else–has announced she’s doing a collaborative diffusion line with H&M, despite announcing in 2008 that she’d nevah, evah work with the Swedish company. “I respect everyone who does it,” she said way back then. “But the reason I didn’t do it is because I work very hard to put the Versace line in the luxury section. I think to put the Versace line in H&M would confuse the brand.” But my, how things have changed. There’ll be around 40 pieces for women and 20 for men. And judging from the look on the left, we’ll be buying — will you? Watch Donatella talk about the new line after the jump! [Global Grind]

Fashion designer and frequent Lady Gaga collaborator, Thierry Mugler, premiered his men’s collection this week, and along with it, released a very salacious photo magazine called Brothers of Arcadia. It features scantily clad male models with incredible abs and firm butts. We’ve secured a few of the more SFW images from the mag — for your educational purposes, of course. Enjoy them after the jump! Keep reading »
