New Lustr iPhone App Plays Hot Potato With Sales

Screw you, internetz, for providing so many opportunities to spend all of our money on shoes. First you give us online shopping, then come online sample sales, now Lustr's new iPhone app, which sends notifications of nearby New York sales to your phone. Yes, it's super useful, but it also makes it hard to concentrate…

Screw Diamonds, Show Your Love With A Spoon

There are quite a lot of things we like about being alive in this era. Computers, for example, come to mind. These '50s ads for Community Flatware illuminated yet another reason to be grateful to have been born when we were: ad execs have realized that attempting to pass off spoons as a sign of…

Beauty Test Drive: Tarte Lip Stain

At first swipe, we had high hopes for Tarte's Natural Lip Stain. Lust, the color we tested, had an appropriately sultry name and glided on with a practiced sort of ease, moisturizing as it went. Unfortunately, the honeymoon period soon disappeared and we were left with nothing but faint vestiges of the relationship we'd begu…

Mario Testino To Exhibit Life-Sized Kate Moss Pics

As if we weren't inundated with enough Kate Moss images on a daily basis, London's Phillips de Pury Auction House and the Saatchi Gallery will be playing host to 18 life-sized, Mario Testino-shot Moss images come July 5. The photos, all shot by Testino in 1996, have been blown up enormously and will sell for…

Nerd Freakout: Hi-Tech Norma Kamali Mannequins

Designer Norma Kamali made a rather interesting contribution to “CatWalk Becomes TechWalk,” a new public display of fashion and art unveiled last week in New York. While others clothed their mannequins in all things sparkly and astronaut-esque, Kamali revealed a mannequin adorned only in branding and bar codes. Download the app at…

Now He’s Baby-Faced

We've heard of trying to maintain young skin, but this is a little ridiculous, don't you think?? [Homotography]…

Tom Ford To Direct Another Film

Tom Ford, former Gucci designer, raging narcissist and surprisingly awesome director of "A Single Man," has confirmed that he'll be making another movie. We were skeptical when we heard last year that Ford was directing at all, but his debut film was actually pretty great, so we're excited to see what…

A Ring That Whispers Instead Of Yells

We're forever on the lookout for costume jewelry that says a little something without being a full-on statement piece. As it turns out, though, the middle ground isn't as easy to find as one would hope. This pretty little domed ring is a slap in the face to all things over-sparkly and totally boring; it'…

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]…

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…

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.

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…

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…

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…

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.

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 a…

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 dow…
