Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
Profile for Julie Gerstein
They say blondes have more fun, but brunettes probably have way less hair damage. Olivia Wilde knows what we mean — the actress showed up to the premiere of “The Five-Year Engagement” this week with a head of honey colored hair. Just days before, her locks were chestnut. What do you think of Olivia’s trip to the light side?
It’s de rigeur that celebs change up their hair color on a shockingly frequent basis. Remember: beauty is pain, and pain is a bottle of peroxide. As such, famous ladies like Kelis, Kate Beckinsale, and Kim Kardashian have been known to take their color up a notch, in the aim of going for a sunny California look. But does it work, or should they have kept their dark locks in the shade? You decide.
Dear Guy, I like you. It’s not only that you eschew polluting, noisy cars for streamlined, eco-friendly bike-mobiles, it’s also that you’ve chosen Sueshiro Sano’s Sanomagic Wooden Bike, a bike so retro-perfect, such an adorable fuse of form and function, that you clearly know how to live. Throw on your perfectly tailored Thom Browne suit — don’t get your pant leg dirty! — and meet me at the French patisserie on the corner. Let’s date already. What’s that? You have a boyfriend? Cripes. Never. Mind. [Definitive Touch] Keep reading »
This week, it was revealed that Kristen Stewart’s “Twilight: Breaking Dawn” wedding dress — the one she’s going to wear to marry dreamy sparkle vamp Edward Cullen — will be designed by Carolina Herrera. We’ve always loved Herrera’s bridal collections — she makes dreamy, frothy confections that aren’t overly frilly — so we’re excited to see what she has in store for the Most Important Movie Bride of All Time. To give you an taste of what Bella might be wearing, we pulled from Herrera’s past collections and selected some of her best gowns. Take a look and tell us if you think these dresses are Bella-worthy.
James Franco will not quit. This time? He’s added fashion photographer to his credit, shooting a spread for Elle magazine featuring friend and fellow beautiful person Agyness Deyn. Jesus Christ, Franco, will you leave some jobs for the rest of us, buddy? Has anybody looked into the possibility that James Franco may be responsible for the rise in unemployment because he is TAKING ALL THE JOBS? Blergh. Check out his handiwork after the jump.

Get ready, girls: Full-Figured Fashion Week is just about upon us. According to the event’s mission, Full-Figured Fashion Week “will not only provide an opportunity for independent designers to market their collections to a wider audience, and a unique opportunity for plus models to gain more professional exposure on the runway, but also a chance for the media, buyers and the general public to have access to collections that have not received the marketing and publicity they deserve.” “It’s been crazy,” said organizer Gwen Devoe. “It’s just exploding. Women are finally getting a chance to see fashion come alive on models with bodies they can relate to.” Keep reading »
The only thing I like better than shopping (and I like shopping A LOT) is eating. And if I could somehow combine those two things, well, that would be magical. And that’s why I’ve created this new feature, “Wear what you eat,” wherein I create outfits and shopping guides themed around some of my favorite summer treats. First up, cool and delicious lemonade. Take a sip and check out our summer picks. Keep reading »
Don Draper. Perhaps the most debonair dad that ever was. Don’s always looking dapper and well-styled, and always has a secretary on hand to mix him up the perfect martini or bourbon on the rocks. My father isn’t quite the Draper type — he’s more the armchair sporty dad (with Coors in hand) — but I’ve certainly known a few dapper dads in my day, and I’ve picked out a few great Father’s Day gifts that even the most hardcore Draper-ite would approve of.
We were thrilled to learn that actress and Tim Burton muse Helena Bonham-Carter had been tapped to be the face of Marc Jacobs’ Fall/Winter 2011 campaign, shot by Juergen Teller. We think it’s especially awesome, considering how Bonham-Carter’s personal style is kind of Victorian-crumpet-meets-Gothic-matchstick-girl-in-a-dark-alley. Plus, she always gives amazing face in all of her photos. We can’t wait for the campaign to come out, and in her honor, we’ve culled together some of our favorite weird looks from the actress for your enjoyment.
