Vivienne Tam Designs Ear Phones for Monster

We love Vivienne Tam for her Chinese-inspired garb, and now we can rock a little of the designer’s signature style whenever we turn on our iPods. The gold finish is so hot, and the delicate butterfly emblem sits in the canal of an ear like a highly-place stud. Maybe ear buds are the new handbag. [insanely-great] Keep reading »

Move Over Lindsay, Madonna Is The Next Celebrity Designer

The Material Girl is in talks to launch a new line of clothing, accessories, shoes, and intimates exclusively at Macy’s. This would be Madge’s first venture into the fashion world after that fugly unique line of track suits for H&M. The name of the in-talks line? “Truth or Dare,” as in the title of the 1991 “film” that documented the star’s Blond Ambition tour. Let’s just hope the T or D line will be better than the movie.

Serena Williams Is Enrolled In Beauty School!?

The ol’ backhand must be getting a little rusty if Serena Williams is training for a second career as a nail tech. The tennis champ recently enrolled in a 240-hour program to become a certified mani-pedi giver. She claims to be launching a new line of nail polish with a company called HairTech. We certainly hope this career switch has nothing to do with her U.S. Open meltdown, but if the former is true, maybe all celebs should devote this kind of energy to their forays into beauty and fashion.

Lindsay Lohan Banned From Fashion Week

Too bad nobody banned her from the catwalk before she may or may not have butchered the house of Ungaro. La Lohan has reportedly been banned from Jill Stuart’s New York Fashion Week show after being labeled a “brand damager.” Apparently, Lindz is no longer worth the (possibly bad?) press she brings to an appearance. And as if that didn’t sting badly enough, her ex Samantha Ronson and designer-sister Charlotte Ronson won’t allow Lindsay at Charlotte’s show or after-party either. Sheesh, one minute you’re in, and the next, you’re so out. [OneIndia] Keep reading »

Pin Thins Take Over Fashion Week & Coco Rocha Is “Too Big” To Walk

Model Coco Rocha has just claimed that she’s a runway-reject at 5′ 10″ and a size 4, and the fashion industry is getting more flack for its pin-thin models. Steven Kolb, of the Council of Fashion Designers of America, stood by the skinny standard and called the runway a world of fantasy where genetically svelte girls will always be in season. The problem is that while the council has set rules and regulations about age and body mass index, they have no way of enforcing these standards and don’t believe it is their job to do so. While some fashionistas don’t see any change on the way, Lynn Grefe, of the National Eating Disorders Association, thinks the change is going to come in the structure of the runway: “… they are going to have to widen the runway so this person can have a feeding tube on wheels.” Oooh, burn.

Plaid In 3D: Burberry Show Sort Of Like “Avatar”

Burberry is taking this Fashion Week into the techno age. The brand, known for a classic, plaid-loving aesthetic, is streaming its London show to Paris, New York, Tokyo, Dubai and L.A. … in 3D. The Feb. 23 trench-fest is supposed to bring audiences around the world straight to the runway. Combining “Avatar“-like special effects plus Emma Watson’s epic payday? It looks like Christopher Bailey is launching himself into the world of major bank. [Secret Sales] Keep reading »

What Are You Wearing Hailey Glassman?

We don’t know what possessed Hailey Glassman to wear a leopard print scarf as a bra and some Hanky-Pankies on the cover of this month’s Steppin’ Out, but it must have been the same thing that made them write “Judge This Haters” on the cover next to her. Oh, we are judging. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

Beyonce Wants You To Buy A Shirt For Haiti

Beyonce has been named the official face of the Council of Fashion Designers of America’s “Fashion for Haiti” knit tee, which (at $25 a pop) will benefit the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund. Buy one: The group’s “Fashion for America” heart T-shirt ended up raising $2 million dollars for the Twin Towers Fund after 9/11. [CFDA] Keep reading »

Botox Makes You Happy?

Ever wish there was a shot to cure sadness? Ever guess that shot was Botox? A new study suggests that freezing the muscles that create frowns (like the infamous jolt of Botulism) can actually stop the sad emotions that accompany the expression. A study of 40 people showed that Botox-injected plastic surgery patients took longer to process sad and unhappy situations than people without frozen foreheads, but could still process happy emotions just as quickly. Weird, huh? [Newsweek] Keep reading »
