Guess Which Company’s Advertisement Now Boasts This Racy Photo

At first glance, this racy pic looks like a lingerie ad or at least a fashion spread from a high style magazine. But it’s for neither of those things. In fact, this photo doesn’t exactly have a lot to do with the company—at least not in our opinion. Find out what it’s for after the…

For Designers Banking On Instant Gratification, “Seasons” May Become A Thing Of The Past

While we are die-hard Fashion Week fans, we’ve often griped about the frustration it brings because winter collections are shown in the summer, spring collections in the winter, and so on and so forth. With the way the fashion world is set up, it often feels like you can never see what you want and…

Video Proof That Willow Really Does Whip Her Hair

Our obsession with Willow Smith continues. (Is it weird that we want to be BFF with a 10-year-old? Yes? Crap.) Check out this video of the teeny-bopper behind-the-scenes of her fashion shoot for the Times of London. You’ll see that even off camera, Willow whips her hair quite a bit and definitely embodies the whip-happy…

There’s No Place Like Nike, There’s No Place …

What you see before you are clearly not your average Nike sneakers. When Nike asked designer Lauren Tennenbaum to imagine a pair as she wished, she went “Wizard of Oz”-style on the kicks and created a ruby slipper-esque pair with a sky-high platform. While we think these kicks are kind of ridiculous, we still feel…

When The Weather Outside Is Frightful, Try This Sleeping Bag-Like Suit?

We’re reluctant to admit this … but upon seeing this sleeping bag-like down suit, we emitted an audible “Oooh.” Because if fashion didn’t matter at all, we’d be so much happier walking around in one of these for the winter months rather than our peacoats. Because, really, people: peacoats do not keep you warm. And…

Melting Hearts For Your Ears

While Craves are normally something you’d want to buy for yourself, we’d rather love it if someone else bought us these Melting Heart earrings by Brooklyn designer Yayoi Forest. So if there are any boyfriends (ahem, ahem) out there looking for poignant yet not too expensive gifts for your lady, consider this pair which literally…

A Monkey And Puppy Playing Might Be The Cutest Video Of 2010

Whatever you are doing now, stop. Just stop. Because it couldn’t possibly be more important than watching this sickeningly cute video of a monkey playing with a Dachshund puppy. There’s even hugging action! We say this clip is an easy contender for #1 cutest thing we saw in 2010. Care to challenge that? [Cute Overload]…

When These Twins Are 18, They’ll Unlock A Treasure Trove Of Dresses (No Joke)

Pictured above: Carolina and Liliana Falcone, twins who are now 5 years old. Their parents are Philip Falcone, a filthy rich investor, and Lisa Falcone, who apparently married in some rags-to-riches story and is now a fashion-obsessed indie movie producer. Lisa wants the very best for her little ones (what mother doesn’t?), and this include…

Do Not Want: Armani’s $900 Phone

Armani’s new mobile phone for Samsung costs a whopping $900. The tagline for the advertising campaign? “It speaks for you.” We’d have to go ahead and say that for $900 … it better speak, sing, and dance. [Armani]…

“Shoes” For The Reluctant Hippie?

Introducing “Footstickers,” which are exactly what they sound like—stickers for your feet so that you can be as close to barefoot as possible without having to actually touch the ground. So do you throw them out when you’re done? Re-wear? Wash? Either way, we can’t really fathom how you’d get away with wearing these to…

Looks Like Carine Roitfeld Didn’t Exactly “Resign” From French Vogue

We like to think that we are nice people. So when we heard that French Vogue editor Carine Roitfeld was leaving her job for bigger and brighter things, we didn’t second-guess her, but instead said, “Yay! Good for you! Have fun! Mazel tov!” Just because we’re nice like that and aren’t going to make any…

Kitty’s In The Christmas Spirit

Our favorite internet cat, Maru, is back with a new video perfect for the holiday season. Watch as he plays around with a Christmas stocking. Our favorite parts? When he simply sits in there and looks out, as if to say, “Santa will never see me hiding from in here, right?” [BuzzFeed]…

Would You Wear: Alexander Wang’s Knit Crop Top?

When is the last time you went bare midriff-style? (The beach doesn’t count.) We’re guessing it was sometime when “Felicity” was still on the air. This knit crop top by Alexander Wang is taking us back down wardrobe memory lane … but we’re not so sure this look is hot anymore. Or if it ever…

If You Love The Smell Of A Boozed-Up Smoker …

You know what really turns us on? When a man comes home from the bar at 2 a.m. reeking of liquor and cigarettes and climbs into your bed. Mmm. Want your guy to be a 24-hour stench-fest even when he’s off the sauce? Look to the Portland General Store’s male grooming products, which come i…

Anna’s Dazed & Confused Cover Brings On The Perma-Grin

Is it just us, or does Anna Paquin look kind of creepy on the January cover of Dazed & Confused? Oh wait, Terry Richardson shot it. That might have something to do with it. [StyleBistro]…
