Modeling Through A Major Head Trauma

Models on Juun J.’s Spring 2011 runway soldiered on in spite of what appears to be massive head trauma. What troopers. [Fashion Copious] Keep reading »

Sally Draper Of “Mad Men” Models Burberry Prorsum Adorably

Following in mom’s fashionable footsteps, Sally Draper — as in Don and Betty’s daughter on Mad Men — recently modeled Burberry Prorsum for Interview Magazine. Kiernan Shipka, the 10-year-old who plays Sally, actually looks weirdly appropriate wearing clothes ten sizes too big and 20 years too old for her. More images from the shoot, after the jump… Keep reading »

Denim And Faint Stripes Make An Adorable Mix

It’s not easy to wear a denim dress without looking like a confused farm hand. For doing it right, we must praise Motel, purveyors of this utterly adorable striped denim concoction. The shape is cute, the pockets subtle and the denim-y-ness not at all overwhelming. We sense a new weekend uniform in the making.

Vintage Shop Reminds Us That Their Stock Is Old, Dead People Clothes

Next time you’re jonesing for a vintage fix but can’t quite find that perfect floral house dress, take heart in the new ads for London’s Shock and Roll vintage shops. The pleasant advertisements serve as a reminder that the old lady on the corner is going to be dead soon and Shock and Roll is going to scoop up all her quirky old lady clothes for your hipster enjoyment. So yes, that perfect silk dress may be walking around on a grandma right now, but give it a few weeks and it could be in your closet. [Copyranter] Keep reading »

Crap You Don’t Need: Gold-Dipped Perfume Wand

Time for today’s episode of “Crap You Definitely Don’t Need!” And what, you ask, is today’s over-the-top item awaiting ridicule? It’s none other than Joya Perfume, the scent that comes in a hand-crafted porcelain bottle with — wait for it — a 22 karat gold-dipped applicator. Because sometimes expensive perfume isn’t classy enough if you aren’t applying it with solid gold, right? And in case you try out Joya only to find that you can’t quite bear going back to the peasant-ready glass bottles of yore, fear not, there are two scents to choose from. We’re not sure how much they cost, but mortgage your house and we’re sure you’ll be able to buy them both! [Advertising Is Good For You] Keep reading »

Carolyn Murphy Makes Out With Dog, Is Hit With Bottle In New Ryan McGinley Video

Photographer Ryan McGinley has never been a fan of shying away from the controversial. A sizable portion of his images, after all, involve naked dudes and chicks running, jumping and chilling out. We’re down with that. In fact, we kind of like it. Less likable is McGinley’s new short film, which features model Carolyn Murphy making out with a dog and being hit in the head with beer bottles and fish bowls. The whole thing feels distinctly off in a way that’s more hot mess than art. You can only see it on Nowness, but maybe that’s a good thing. [Fashion Indie] Keep reading »

Lily’s Top 10 “WTF Was I Thinking?” Clothing Purchases

I wouldn’t say I have a shopping “problem.” It’s more like a really dedicated interest in what I consider to be one of the more exhilarating sports on earth. As with any great athlete, though, I sometimes screw it up. And even floating in the ever-expanding sea that is my wardrobe, those screw ups make themselves known, like an endless loop of whiffing on a goal playing every ten minutes on ESPN. Alright, that’s enough with the sports metaphors. Jessica, Susannah, and Leo, I’ve got you beat… Keep reading »

Beauty Test Drive: Liquid TimeBalm Spot Concealer

Know what’s not cute? Sweating through your makeup. Also not cute? The icky things that drying concealers do to your face as they try to banish your zits. But come summer (by which we mean the clogged pores of summer), we have a habit of turning to concealers with harsh ingredients out of pimply desperation. Here’s the problem: they don’t really work long term. For one big zit that you need to zap into submission, a concealer with salicylic acid will briefly help you out. For everyday acne, all it does is dry your skin into anger. Counter-intuitive though it sounds, a spot concealer with a touch of natural tea tree oil is actually a better way to go. We tried out TheBalm’s TimeBalm liquid concealer and kind of fell in love. It’s lightweight, so you won’t feel pancake-faced in the heat, and super soothing for sensitive or broken out skin. The ingredients are natural, the tea tree oil is a natural anti-bacteria and harsh ingredients are nowhere to be found. [$20, TheBalm, Sephora] Keep reading »

Keep Your Clothes On, Lindsay Lohan

Is it just us, or does no one really want to see Lindsay Lohan naked anymore? Yeah, there was a time when that was a thing people were into, but now her decision to pose nude to sell her handbag line just seems a little sad. Never one to pick up on social cues as to when enough is enough, though, Lohan will be disrobing for the camera once again. All that’s left to decide is whether or not they should have “police on hand so we can remove the ankle bracelet for the pictures,” says Richard Luna of TheCaliforniaBag, which licenses Lohan’s 6126 line. Decisions decisions! [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

A&F Half-Nude Mag To Return To Stores

Sales at Abercrombie & Fitch used to be through the roof, and while some blame the general economic downturn for A&F’s sinking sales, we know what’s really to blame: the discontinuation of the A&F Quarterly. The in-store mag, replete with naked and half naked pictures of hot people, launched in 1997 and was shut down in 2003, much to the dismay of frat boys everywhere. Now, on July 17, the A&F Quarterly makes a triumphant, probably-nude return to Abercrombie & Fitch stores all over the place. Pick up your copy and, umm, lock the bathroom door while you, uhh, “read” it. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
