Few and far between are the crochet accessories that manage not to look like hippie-wear. These Candela NYC booties, however, expertly walk the fine line between something that belongs in the closets of people who went to Woodstock and pretty-chic. The ribbon laces, sleek shape, and floral pattern make them a total win in our book.
Kate Moss, perhaps the most over-exposed yet somehow mysterious model of our time, is venturing into the realm of reality TV. Moss won’t be hosting her own show — the gods are not that kind — but she will be making a guest appearance on Great British Hairdresser, a show slated to be hosted by her friend, hair stylist James Brown. Though perhaps not the world’s most original concept, the celebrity guests stopping in should make it far and away cooler than most of the American hairdresser search incarnations. If Moss wasn’t enough to convince you to tune in, Gwyneth Paltrow and Liv Tyler will also make appearances. [Press Association]

Pissed that their uber-expensive tech toys shut down in intense heat and sun, three iPad users are suing Apple for everything from false advertising to breaching consumer protection laws. The three plaintiffs — Jacob Balthazar, Claudia Keller and John Browning — have filed their complaint in Oakland, CA, and their lawyer hopes to turn it into a class action suit on behalf of all affected iPad users. With mounting reports of iPads shutting themselves down in high temperatures, we wonder if anything will come of this. Surely that’s an obnoxious defect, but the device’s instruction manual does warn that it won’t function properly above 95 degrees, so maybe Apple has managed to adequately cover its ass on this one. iPad users, have you been having any heat-related issues?

Someone has finally asked the question on all of our minds: How many hipsters can you fit in a single, brightly colored car? Even if we never find the answer, at least we’ve learned that “with such an amazing field of vision, it makes being judgmental of people who aren’t as cool as you even easier.” Sweet.

Soccer players are so in right now. Though the World Cup definitely deserves the brunt of the credit for that, we have no idea why it took so long for people to obsess over what is essentially an army of incredibly fit, hot men. Now that the world has arrived at the fairly obvious conclusion that ogling soccer bods just makes sense, the Chelsea soccer team has signed a deal to be outfitted exclusively by Dolce & Gabbana when strolling sexily for public appearances. As though we needed yet another reason to stare … [The Independent] Keep reading »
Despite our ardent attempts to stave off the return of “preppy” as a trend, it seems the popped collar is upon us and seersucker is having a full-on-moment. Again. Rather than continuing the noble fight to make pastel pants for men a thing of the past, we’re joining the multitudes and getting our prep on. The folks over at Flavorwire, too, have skeptically jumped on the bandwagon, rounding up the Top 40 pop culturally relevant preppies of all time. Carlton Banks, we salute you and your ever-present shoulder sweater! [Flavorwire] Keep reading »
We kind of started approving of everything Justin Timberlake
does after he shed his N’Sync-era brillo pad curls and excessive denim. The upcoming ads he directed for his 901 Tequila, however, throws his infallibility back into question. Justin seems to have followed the “when in doubt, make it about sex” logic that so many endeavors fall prey to. But this time, it’s not just sex; it’s oral
sex. Don’t get us wrong, every lady likes it when a nice gentleman goes to lady town, but we’re not so sure that we see the Tequila connection. Or, for that matter, that we want to have to give the very explicit instructions that the girl in Justin’s commercial seems to find necessary. Check out the two other ads after the jump! [Pursuitist

In her ongoing bid for world domination, Donald Trump’s daughter Ivanka is launching a line of shoes and handbags. The shoes will be released by Marc Fisher and sold for $80-$140 in department stores next spring, but the details of the handbags are still unclear. If Ivanka’s line of diamond jewelry is any indicator, you can expect a reasonably attractive roundup of Ivanka accessories come spring. [Dime Wars] Keep reading »
As if these butt and boobs motorcycle helmets weren’t icky enough on their own, the boob helmet comes complete with a nipple piercing. Before seeing this particular piercing, we didn’t even know that nipple piercings could be particularly gaudy, we’d always though it was a standard ring sort of situation. Now we know better. One more NSFW pic after the jump… [Copyranter] Keep reading »
