Our Favorite Looks From Madewell’s Fall 2011 Lookbook

I know it’s difficult to even think about fall right now, but fashion designers have already moved way past summer and are on to designing their fall and winter collections. We took a peak at Madewell’s looks for Fall 2011 and were, to be honest, less than thrilled. Many of the outfits featured 3/4-length skirts — falling somewhere in the middle of the calf — which are difficult for most women to wear, and the clothes were styled in grunge-lite — not the most flattering look. Still, we did manage to find quite a few looks we loved. In the interest of positivity, keep clickin’ to check those out!

I might subtitle this post, “In which I learn that I have the same aesthetic taste as Nicole Richie.” While collecting pieces for this shopping guide, I came across at least half a dozen pieces from Richie’s House of Harlow 1960 collection that I just had to own (I pared it down to just one). Maybe it’s because we share a birthday? Or because we both have incredible taste (although I do not see her fascination with Joel Madden, but whatever). In any case, I’ve found 10 gorgeous statement necklaces–including a couple from Nicole–for your perusal. Check ‘em out!

–”X-Men” actress Jennifer Lawrence, talking about what she ate before the Oscars, in this month’s Elle magazine.

Andrej Pejic’s Man Boobs Brew Up Controversy

Look at this cover of Dossier magazine. Notice anything especially spicy or scintillating? Well apparently Barnes & Noble did. Enough so that they censored the cover, featuring androgynous male model Andrej Pejic, in their stores. While men’s magazines routinely feature naked male torsos on their covers, we suspect it was the confusing–confusing to Barnes & Noble anyway — juxtaposition of Pejic’s hyperfeminine face with his masculine chest that bewildered. Still, it calls into question just what makes a body feminine or masculine to begin with; if Pejic’s angelic facial figures cross the line for Barnes & Noble, and make his body verboten, then maybe we’ve been looking at the wrong body parts all along?
