Style 911: How To Wear Sleeveless To The Office

If you work in a place where not looking skanky or slobbish is valued, summer presents a few problems. As temperatures creep closer and closer to unbearable, keeping up the same level of dress sometimes becomes an issue. Fall, after all, makes a crisp blouse and jacket easy. July at 90 degrees? Not so much.

Irina Lazareanu Is The Newest Model Turned Designer

There are models we know simply for their bodies and faces and models we know for their personal style as much as their physical appearance. Irina Lazareanu falls into the second category. She’s definitely been successful as a model, but she’s been even more influential as a personality and trendsetter. She didn’t just walk i…

Worth The Splurge: Something Sparkly From Gryphon

Designers do different, very specific things well. Burberry, for example, knocks it out of the park with coats, yet charges almost $300 for an ill-fitting polo. When it comes to well-executed sparkles, Gryphon is queen. Yes, they sometimes overdo it — as people who are into shiny clothes are wont to do — but they…

How To Keep Your Feet Looking Nice This Summer

When I lived at home, my mom made us — and our confused friends — wash our feet in the sink before entering the house proper during the summer. In sandal weather, she could often be heard admonishing us not to “drag our street feet into the house!” As a result, I’m flexible and balanced…

Nicole Richie’s Clothing Line Could Result In Fashion Victims

We were skeptical when Nicole Richie launched her jewelry line, House of Harlow 1960, a couple years back. Images of her multi-colored hair, denim miniskirts, and general “Simple Life”-era tackiness flashed before our eyes and, as a result, we were shocked when House of Harlow turned out to be quite cool on the whole. Vintage-inspired…

The Polaroid Project Shows Off Models Being Their Beautiful Selves

Though The Impossible Project has made a valiant effort to bring back the Polaroid camera by re-releasing Polaroid film, the days of the ever-flattering snap and shoot are behind us. And as much as this peeves us personally — everyone looks good in Polaroids; who can say the same about pictures taken with digital cameras?

Sunburn Horror Stories: Don’t Be A Bright Red, Blister-Covered Cautionary Tale

As summer ebbs ever closer, they start popping up everywhere. Bright red, wincing, and trying (yet failing) to hide the tell-tale signs with cleverly applied makeup, there’s nothing more depressing than an early summer sunburn victim. Sure, we’ve all been there, but, somehow, we forget the terror of those tan lines and burned bums by…

How To Dress For Cuteness And Comfort On A Long Flight

A quick glance around any airplane is often an assault to your eyes. Whether too short, too tight, too sloppy, or too much, travelers are highly susceptible to putting on clothes inappropriate for their journey.

Spring looks for Kate Moss’ eponymous Topshop line hit stores this Thursday, but they hit the internet today. Though the clothes themselves are a challenge to see in the angelic light shining behind Ms. Moss, we think the video showed off exactly what it was intended to display: Kate’s MILF body. And if…

How To Ward Off Dry Skin This Summer

If your hometown’s having the same nice, sunny weather we’ve been experiencing in New York City, you’re probably browning a bit and noticing a layer of dead skin dulling your complexion. Sadly, though the type of dryness changes, skin dehydration doesn’t disappear when humidity enters the picture. But because a lot of people don’t realize…
