This past weekend, Ripley’s Believe it or Not Museum in St. Augustine, Florida, held a trashy fashion contest, aimed at discovering the best young designers who could create things out of recycled materials. Take this dress made by 15-year-old Kennedy Trugter, who won $100 for her party dress made entirely out of newspaper. Pretty impressive, right? But Kennedy wasn’t the only winner…

I remember first running across Milla Jovovich when she was on the cover of Sassy magazine back in 1991. Her little model bio said that her favorite author (this was when she was 17, mind you) was Dostoevsky, and even at that young age, I knew she was hopelessly pretentious. It seems that she’s aged well — she’s still ridiculously gorgeous — and made a slew of really stupid movies (“Resident Evil,” anyone?). Plus, she’s developed her own fashion line  — Jovovich-Hawk — with her friend Carmen Hawk. And here, at a Restoration Hardware event last week, Jovovich proves her sartorial strengths, too. Find out how to get the look, after the jump! Keep reading »

The Good, The Bad & The Totally Meh At The “Titantic 3-D” Premiere

Love it or hate it, “Titanic” is definitely back, and this time in 3-D. The stars of the film turned out to support the premiere in London this week, and it’s incredible to see that Kate Winslet seems to hardly have aged at all. What has changed — the media landscape around her. One in which a slew of strange reality stars with rainbow-tinged hair are now permitted to show up to the premieres of hit films and traipse the red carpet. But what you want to know is … what were they wearing? Check out their shining moments and sartorial mishaps in the slideshow above!

Look, there’s no doubt I support animal rights. I’m a vegan. I don’t wear fur and only wear vintage leather. However, I feel very strange about animal rights organization PETA using Courtney Stodden as their spokeslady. I mean, it’s great that Courtney adopted her dog Bazaar from a shelter eight years ago, and “saturates” him with love. And also great that she claims she’s never eaten a hamburger and has recently become a vegetarian. But uh, is the lucite heels wearing, 17-year-old child bride really the best spokesperson for animals? Was Jason Lee or Alicia Silverstone busy that day?

Do Models Age?

Do you think these supermodels defied the aging process? Read More »

This is Claudia Schiffer. At the age of 41, she’s reprising her famous role as Guess model and Hot Chick About Town. It’s not fair that Ms. Schiffer gets to look so good, is it? So we’re going to start a rumor that she siphons out her own blood and replaces it with the blood of children. So yes, that’s how that works.

Chart: Things That Actually Remove Your Nail Polish

Winona and I agree: Nail polish remover isn’t always the best at, you know, actually removing nail polish. Instead, we’ve found that your average quotidian activities like oh, typing, sleeping and zipping up zippers will do the job for you just fine. Even and especially after you’ve just gotten your nails did. So we present, activities that will chip and scrape your polish off versus actual nail polish remover.
