Tell Me I'm Pretty
Is it so much to ask to want to be told I'm beautiful? Read More »

Samantha Brick is a lady writer for the UK’s Daily Mail, which makes her, yes, perhaps less than 100 percent credible. She also thinks she’s totally the most gorgeous woman in the world. Don’t believe me? Just ask her. She wrote a 2,000 word screed on the subject for the paper. And she was entirely serious. In it, Brick details the daily struggles she faces as an extra-attractive woman. It is so difficult being so hot.

Somebody sounds like a Pantene commercial…

Krysten Ritter always gets stuck playing the quirky friend in movies like “Confessions of a Shopaholic” and “She’s Out of My League,” and I guess it’s a great thing that now she’s got the lead role in this new series, “Don’t Trust the B— in Apartment 23.” But geez, could this show have a worse name/premise? Anyway, it’s a shame, because Krysten always struck me as pretty cool — like someone you’d be friends with in an alternate universe. And she’s got a great fashion sense, too. Like, take this Jenni Kayne maxi-dress she wore to the premiere of her new film “Life Happens.” (And check out the red shoes!) Cute, cool and super laid-back. Just like we imagine Krysten probably is.

9 Super Cool Statement Blazers

We were really feeling the crazy patterned blazer that Victoria Justice wore to the premiere of “Bully” the other day. We liked it so much we were inspired to find nine other patterned and printed blazers — jackets that can totally take a simple jeans and tee-shirt combo up a notch. Check ‘em out after the jump and tell us which one you like best! Keep reading »

You’ve got great style, sure, but have you made the cut of Time magazine’s list of most influential style icons? If not, that’s okay — only 100 designers, brands, models and muses were selected. The mag curated the list going back to its start in 1923. Some of the choice names?

Inveterate designers like Coco Chanel, Elsa Schiaparelli and Vivienne Westwood. But while high fashion dominated, Sara Blakely, the woman who founded the shapewear line Spanx, also made the list.

Who didn’t? None of young Hollywood’s crop of fashion faces, like Blake Lively and Mila Kunis. It remains to be seen if their fashion influence will last.

Check out the full list after the jump! [Time]

A lot of work — and airbrushing — goes into modeling. Here are (from left to right) Alessandra Ambrosio, Crystal Renn and Brooklyn Decker posing for Victoria’s Secret. And in this shot, they’ve been caught without a whiff of airbrushing. Look how … normal they look (well, Renn and Decker, anyway). [FashionIndie]

Former Lucky Editor Launches New Blog

We’ve been big fans of Kim France ever since she worked at Sassy magazine and invented this thing called Kim France Pants, which were pants that were to be worn under skirts and such. She worked at Sassy before going on to start Lucky. And then weirdly — just like her former co-conspirator Jane Pratt’s mag Jane before her – Lucky was taken over by Brandon Holley. Now France is back with a new project, titled Girls of a Certain Age, a blog aimed at women in their 30s and 40s. “I’m 48, but I’m an immature 48,” said France. “There are people in this city who work in creative businesses whose interests are still very youth-ish. They like rock music, looking cool, but they are not kids anymore. They don’t, you know, respond to crotch high skirts on a style blog, no matter how cute they look.” Mazel tov! [WWD]
