Yves Saint Laurent just released its Spring 2010 men’s video and the star is not so much an Adonis-like fellow complete with lovely face and six pack abs as it is, well, an 11 year old boy. But after you get over the initial shock and displeasure about the fact that you were turned on in advance and the grade schooler’s appearance made you feel kind of dirty, you’ll start to like the quirky little video. The kid is son of the director, Samuel Benchetrit, and the good ‘ol fashioned hijinks he gets up to at The Bristol Hotel after finding a key on the street are worth a brief at-work giggle. From writing on mirrors with ketchup to watching a bit of hotel TV porn and convincing Melinde, apparently the lover of the rightful renter of the hotel room, to fly to Paris, the little one gets stuff done.

I don’t get lady times once a month. In fact, I don’t get it ever. Due to babymaker problems that you’d prefer not to think about (trust me), I’ve been on a constant stream of birth control for six months so as to avoid more surgery. In short, my reproductive system doesn’t function. The factory has been shut down.
But because a few icky lady parts problems and surgeries just aren’t enough to deal with, I’ve also reacted badly to six different forms of hormones, becoming a bloated, mean, or moody mess after a few weeks on each. So last week, once the inexplicable crying had set in, my chest had inflated to monstrous proportions, and I felt the urge to kick small children, my doctor decided it was time to try my seventh variety of hormone. But rather than switching directly from the patch to the new pill, she told me to take a week off, complete a cycle and then get back to being The Amazing Period-Less Girl. Keep reading »
Don’t bother denying it, you’ve been trying to dress like Blair and Serena for months now. Well, your days of attempting to make $50 dresses look like Chanel are over, courtesy of Anna Sui. The quirky chic designer has just released images of her Gossip Girl-inspired collection for Target and we’re definitely getting the appropriate level of Blair vibes from the dress all the way on the left. Check out the whole collection here before it launches September 13. [The Cut] Keep reading »
“Boxy” isn’t a word often associated with looking good. It’s more the sort of thing my mom calls me on a chubby day or that one time I wore an oversized blazer and came out looking sort of like a cross between a school marm and a stripper about to get the show going. Anyway, I screwed the pooch on that one but recent Royal Academy of Fine Arts grad Irina Shaposhnikova got boxy right like you wouldn’t believe in her graduation fashion show.

ICON. LEGEND. FEARED. REVERED. ANNA F**KING WINTOUR, begins the trailer for The September Issue. (Well, minus “f**king,” but we totally wouldn’t have been shocked.) Watch it now and tell us what your favorite bit was in the comments. I was partial to Andre Leon Talley lamenting the “famine of beauty” towards the end. And Anna glancing at proofs and saying “she looks pregnant” over a picture of Jennifer Garner. And the part when Thakoon compares Anna to Madonna (because it’s true). And everything. Just everything.

Remember that site F My Life? (I do because my roommate still reads it obsessively, laughing to herself in the corner much like a psychopath.) For those of you who don’t remember, F My Life serves up bite-sized stories about the tragedy of every day life, as submitted (and often made up) by anyone and everyone in command of a computer and the English language. It’s kind of funny to read things like: “I ran into my crush of three years ago. We used to always walk our dogs together. He still remembered my dog’s name. He didn’t remember mine.” (Okay, really funny.) But after a while, the utter disappointment and failure of it all grows a bit old.
When that day arrives for you, direct your attention to My Life Is Average, online home to all things painfully mediocre and oddly entertaining. I suggest reading while completing some mundane task so as to magnify both the fact that you’re not alone in your toiling and also the possibility that things will be this way forever. Yay!

There seems to be a prevailing notion that shorts–even dressy ones–can just be thrown on and everything will be alright. I mean, they’re shorts, they’re easy, right? Wrong, bitches. Dressy shorts, when handled incorrectly, will leave you looking effed up. Lest you, lovely readers, should leave the house in black silk shorts, a tee and Chucks, we’ll show you how to get it right.

First up is this rather cute strapless rose printed dress. The full skirt is great and the dark background means you can pair it with boots, opaque tights and a leather jacket well into the fall. [$58, Kimchi Blue, Urban Outfitters]
