Lady Gaga’s Airport Adventure Look

So, this is how Lady Gaga dresses when she’s going to the airport. Not that we’re surprised. Still, it seems that multiple metal belts and tchotkes might be a bit inconvenient for airport security. And we’ll take flip-flops over trying to get those platform boots off with a line of disgruntled passengers behind her any day. [Veronica James] Keep reading »

A Wolf In Sheep’s Clothing

It’s really hard to figure out what to wear during the spring months, when the weather can turn from nice to nasty on a dime. That’s why we love Wolf & Harrison’s French Terry Cape, which allows you to brave the elements in a sweet and stylish way. The 100 percent organic cotton cape fills a weird weather niche, but we’re betting you’re going to want to wear it year round — wolf, sheep or whatever you are.

Elizabeth Taylor Had Extra Eyelashes

Long before Latisse or any of the other eyelash lengthening potions were developed, Elizabeth Taylor rocked extra-long, extra-thick lashes. And now, just weeks after her death, the truth behind her lush lashes has been revealed: Taylor was born with distichiasis–or double rows of eyelashes. Thankfully, the mutation had few negative effects — though in some cases it can cause problems if the lashes begin to grow inward — but it did make some assume she was wearing makeup when she was not. Roddy McDowell, her co-star in “Lassie Come Home,” recalled:

“On her first day of filming, they took one look at her and said: ‘Get that girl off the set – she has too much eye make-up on, too much mascara’ … Guess what? They learned that she had no mascara on. She has a double set of eyelashes. Now, who has double eyelashes except a girl who was absolutely born to be on the big screen?”

If you’re not familiar with Joe Zee, you’re about to be. The much-loved creative director for Elle magazine, and one of the few voices of reason on MTV’s reality show, “The City” — where he had to contend with the likes of scheming socialite Olivia Palermo, ugh — Zee is heading back to television once again. He stars in the Sundance Channel’s new show “All On the Line,” where he’ll help young designers shape and sell their struggling lines. We spoke with Zee about the show, his creative vision, and what makes some designers succeed where others fail. Keep reading »

Is This Calvin Klein Ad Saying A Swear Word?

Take a good look at this Calvin Klein billboard ad, starring supermodel Lara Stone. Notice anything a bit naughty about it (other than the fact that she’s in a tit-baring bra and underwear)? Some savvy media critics say that the ad subliminally spells out a swear word. If you start at the legs of the table in the background, which form an F, and then follow the curve of Stone’s underwear line, which makes a U, to its logical CK end, well, you see where we’re going with this. But what do you think? An intentional swear or just a kooky coincidence? [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
