Dita Von Teese Struts In A Mechanical Jean-Paul Gaultier Corset

As though Jean-Paul Gaultier’s couture presentation weren’t awesome enough with its copious turbans and leather, Dita Von Teese capped off the show in a patent leather, jewel-encrusted, and, best of all, mechanical corset. Only vaguely skeletal from the front, the thing looked positively macabre (in a cool way) from the back. Click through for more…

The End Of Boat Shoe Syndrome

There’s this problem with a lot of high-tops that keeps them from being more prevalent in our wardrobes. It’s called Boat Shoe Syndrome (because we named it that) and it manifests itself by making the shoes way too wide and clunky for our dainty lady feet. These Nike Dunk Skinny High Top Trainers, however, are…

Stella McCartney Horse Shirt Freaks Us Out

Please tell us that this Stella McCartney horse shirt makes you feel a little weird, too. I mean, something’s just off about it, right? We tried to give the thing the benefit of the doubt, but every time we were prepared to write it off to quirkiness, there it was, staring at us from another…

Juicy Couture Cocktail Rings Know What’s Up

There’s something to be said for elegant jewelry that does the whole whispering instead of screaming thing. But there’s also something to be said for screwing that method and getting really, really gaudy with your accessories. Cue Juicy Couture cocktail rings. They’re huge, shiny, and far cooler than the velour track suits of yore. Subtlety,…

Crap You Don’t Need: Hello Kitty Motor Oil

So you know how your car sometimes runs out of motor oil and you take it to your local gas station or Jiffy Lube or something and say “fill ‘er up with that high grade Hello Kitty brand motor oil, ‘ol chap!”? Oh, that doesn’t sound familiar? That’s probably because it’s utterly ridiculous. In fact,…

The Man With The 23-Inch Waist

Meet Gabriel Moginot, the man with the amazing 23-inch waist. Though his actual waist measurement is closer to 30 inches, as a student of legendary haute-couture corset-maker Mr. Pearl, Moginot has trained himself to fit into the 23-inch corset pictured at left. Though Mr. Pearl, whose tiny corsets are painfully beautiful, has shimmied his ow…

Victoria Beckham To Design Your Next Car

In an apparent effort to get her hands into literally everything, Victoria Beckham is now adding vehicle designer to her resume, as Range Rover’s new “creative design executive.” The announcement was made at a Vogue-held party for the luxury car brand last night where Beckham was praised for her epic taste-making skillz. We fully acknowledge…

Check Out Nike’s N98 Muse Collection

Nike has paired up with six young, new London designers, asking them to tear apart the classic N98 jacket and remodel it with specific athletes in mind. Designers like Katie Eary took athlete muses like sprinter Martyn Rooney and customized the jackets to emulate their style. Eary’s concoction was a classic N98 shape with a…

Would You Wear Super-Complicated Underwear?

For some of us (by which I mean me), mustering up the energy to wear a thong is no small task. The whole dental floss in the arse thing just feels a little unnecessary, amiright? So when I saw this picture, I kind of got exhausted just looking at it. Straps, lace, mesh, clasps, what?

Diesel’s “Be Stupid” Ads Banned In Britain

Some of Diesel’s ever-annoying “Be Stupid” campaign posters have been banned in Britain for fear that they’ll inspire bad behavior in local kiddies. Frankly, we’re spitefully pleased to see the campaign — which reminds us that “stupid is the best idea smart ever had” (whaa?) — cut down a bit. The entire campaign wasn’t removed,…

Miu Miu Inspired By Jodie Foster’s “Taxi Driver” Look?

Is it just us, or do the models in Miu Miu’s Resort 2011 campaign look suspiciously like teenage hookers? We’re a little bit in love with the shoes, but the whole mommy’s makeup, too-much-jewelry, Jodie Foster in “Taxi Driver” thing makes us feel a little awkward. [Fashion Copious]…

Naomi Campbell To Testify In War Trial

Naomi Campbell, no stranger to courtroom appearances, will be testifying in a trial for someone other than her rage-y self, it seems. Former Liberian President Christopher Taylor is on trial for 11 counts of war crimes and crimes against humanity and Campbell is being called to testify at the trial. According to actress Mia Farrow,…

Model Shannan Click And Train Wreck Lindsay Lohan Separated At Birth?

Model Shannan Click’s bronzer-heavy Vogue cover looks so much like Lindsay Lohan that we did a double take. The wavy blond hair, fedora-lovin’ and excessive eyeliner all have us a little nervous that Lindsay is about to announce her new career as a high-fashion stylist, in which case we’ll all have to move to some…

Beauty Test Drive: Make Up Forever HD Concealer

In our ongoing efforts to find the ideal concealer for these hot months, we gave Make Up Forever’s HD concealer wand a try. We were impressed by the smooth feel, oil-free aspect and the fact that it left us neither dry nor slippery. Our only gripe with the stuff is that you have to be…
