Built-In Placket Bras Solve Boob Issues

About a year ago, I wore a black wrap dress to a job interview. As I prepared to leave the house, I silently congratulated myself on the appropriateness of the outfit, noting the mid-knee length and the tailored but not too tight skirt. So when I looked down an hour later, midway through a sentence…

Kristen Stewart’s British Elle Cover Looks Ripped From The Late ’90s

Is it just us or does Kristen Stewart’s upcoming Elle U.K. cover look like it features a “Friends” cast member? The magazine says the simple hair and makeup were an attempt to keep in touch with Stewart’s “enviably effortless style,” but we think she looks distinctly unlike herself and a little too much like a…

Give Katy Perry’s Purple Eyeshadow A Try

It’s hard to ignore the hideous ’80s images that flash before our eyes when we think of purple eyeshadow, but a recent uptick in celebs pulling off the look has forced us to re-consider our fear of the stuff. Katy Perry may look a little bit like a pretty bobblehead doll in this picture but…

Jumping Through The Ages

As far as editorials go, few things are more fun than a good jump shot. And while Caroline Trentini’s Vogue leap (pictured) has epitomized the jump shot for the past several seasons, she owes her inspiration to photographer Phillipe Hallsman, the man who more or less invented the technique. Hallsman captured everyone from Marilyn Monroe…

Olivier Theyskens To Design A Line For Theory

Olivier Theyskens, the long-haired fellow who used to be head designer at Nina Ricci, is designing a capsule collection for Theory. Theyskens has a habit of designing some rather gorgeous clothes, so we’re thrilled at the prospect of seeing some of his things at a more reasonable price point. That said, the Theyskens/Theory connection remai…

Alexander McQueen Successor Found In Sarah Burton

After Alexander McQueen’s death, some feared the label would fall into disrepair in the absence of its founder and creative chief. Fear not, McQueen fans, Gucci Group has named Sarah Burton as the line’s new head designer. Having worked with McQueen since 1996, Burton’s got the sort of in-depth knowledge of the brand that a…

How To Give Yourself A Great Pedicure

Beauty-wise, there are two really great things about winter: 1) you don’t really have to shave, and 2) the state of your toes is largely irrelevant because they’re so often encased in boots and other toe-hiding shoes. Come summer, both of these become weird and disgusting, so you have to start, you know, taking care…

Eley Kishimoto For Anthropologie Looks Like Maternity Wear

We love an Anthropologie designer collaboration as much as the next girl, but the newly released Eley Kishimoto collection is a dud. Cheaper fabrics don’t seem to do justice to Eley Kishimoto’s usually cute prints and shapes, and all the clothes veer pretty intensely towards maternity wear. The line is available in the U.K. and…

Urban Outfitters Necklace Closely Resembles Indie Design

Urban Outfitters’ rib cage necklace (right) bears a striking resemblance to indie designer Lillian Crowe’s rendition (left), doesn’t it? The designer, who debuted the bone jewelry last March, thinks so and she’s trying not to be pissed. The fashion industry would have stalled and died a long time ago if designers couldn’t “be inspired” by…

Beauty Test Drive: Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate

We’re generally pretty skeptical of any beauty product that claims to fix up our messy bits while we sleep. What happened to the whole beauty is pain concept? Suddenly beauty is supposed to be just easy? Well, apparently so. Kiehl’s new Midnight Recovery Concentrate did, in fact, have a visible effect on my face overnight.

Stockings So Great You’ll Want More Legs

Turkish hosiery brand VOG just launched an e-commerce site and apparently decided to celebrate by turning women into spiders. We don’t hate those pink tights, but we’re also not ready to sign on for extra appendages in order to wear more of them, either. [Copyranter]…

A Storefront In NYC For Only $7 A Day!

Have you always dreamed of opening up a store in a trendy neighborhood? Do you have $7? If you answered yes to both of these questions, your dreams may very well be on the cusp of coming true, albeit in a half-assed sort of way. Shopping Box, a new store in New York City’s Soho…

Can Giles Deacon Save Emanuel Ungaro?

After appointing the train wreck that is Lindsay Lohan to be artistic director, the people behind Emanuel Ungaro have come to their senses. Now, rather than banking on tacky celebs, they’re investing in real talent in the form of British designer Giles Deacon. Giles regularly rocks our world with his eponymous label, so we’re excited…

Milla Jovovich stars in this ad for Berlin’s Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, and apparently no detail was left un-done. This is like an editorial on acid. [Modelinia]…

Chill Out With Cuisinart’s Cute Ice Cream Maker

We like eating ice cream year-round, but something about licking a fudge pop while wearing gloves feels a little tragic. Then summer comes and our dedication to ice cream becomes mainstream, rather than sad. Stick it to fair-weather ice cream fans by getting creative with Cuisinart’s bright ice cream, frozen yogurt, and sorbet maker. Thi…
