There were a lot of people at the MTV Movie Awards that I didn’t know, mostly because I am a 100 years old, and I’ve never seen any of the “Harry Potter” movies and I only sat through half of one of the “Twilight” movies under the pretense of making out with a dude. (Pro tip: “Twilight” is much better if you imagine that Kristen Stewart’s character is actually a giant rotisserie chicken. Anyway.) So many Ashleys! It seems last night’s movies party/extended Spielberg advertisement offered quite the strange array of Fashion Bug animal prints and Harajuku street style-lite garments, and oh yes, even Lil’ Mama showed up, so you know it’s really a party. After the jump, we dissect Team Potter, Team Twilight and everything in between.

We should all be so lucky to age as gracefully as Carmen Dell’Orefice. Dell’Orefice started her modeling career when she covered Vogue in 1947. At 80, she’s still walking the runways. Most recently, she’s walked for John Galliano, Hermes and Alberta Ferretti. Dear Universe, this is how I want my life to play out. [HP] Keep reading »

Noted window smasher and Rihanna beater Chris Brown just keeps making it easy to hate him. And he’s also helpfully adorning his body with new and horrifying signs of his own d-baggery. Witness this classy smiley-face-on-crack tattoo Mr. Brown just got tattooed on his back. Yeah, not cool, guy, but at least you’ve offered up a nice little external visual cue to your internal crappiness. [Gawker] Keep reading »

When it’s hot out, you want to put as little thought as possible into what you’re wearing. And that’s why rompers are a great summer option–one piece of clothing you can jump in and out of, wear over a swimsuit and pair with heels or sandals and be on your way. We’ve found a bevy of romping, stomping options for you to try — all under $100 — so you can get on with your summer fun already!
This idea has been a long time coming. Designers over at LA denim studio Bleulab created totally reversible jeans. Given how little we actually like washing our jeans in the first place, the idea that when your jeans get dirty you could simply TURN THEM INSIDE OUT is actually revolutionary. The best part? The jeans aren’t some freaky deaky modified pajama jeans situation on the crotch — they actually have front pockets, zippers, and regular closures. This got us thinking about what other kinds of clothing innovations we need to see happen. Like maybe some retractable shoe laces, that trim themselves to the perfect length? Or white shirts with mega-stain guard technology? What would you innovate? [$163-207, Bleulab Reversible Denim] Keep reading »
“I’m always traveling, and I get so excited when I find a new spice or a new sauce. This is absolutely crazy, but I wanted a sauce from New Orleans, and they wouldn’t send it because the FDA didn’t approve it. I called the restaurant and I said, “OK, can you buy a teddy bear and cut it open and put it in and send it?” They’re like, “No, we are not the drug cartel; we’re not sending you your sweet potato sauce in a teddy bear.”
