Lily Allen Behind The Scenes, Working It For Chanel (Again)

It’s no-big-whup news that Lily Allen is starring in the new Chanel campaign. In her first foray into Chanel ads, she did the whole Audrey Hepburn thing. But the new 411: We’ve spotted behind-the-scenes photos from the latest installment, courtesy of The Daily Mail. Lily’s posing with Karl (who’s also working it behind the camera) and rocking a seriously layered ‘do. The Mail claims she’s looking sort of nervous, but I’m calling BS on that—Miss Allen is a photo shoot vet, and knows her way around a camera. Check ‘em out… Keep reading »

Chic Dresses That Actually Cover Up Your Naughty Bits

So, who out there has ever had to layer a tank top under, say, a DVF wrap dress in order to remain “covered”? Or have you ever felt nekkid wearing a strapless dress to work, so you threw on a tee underneath? Or a cardi on top? Don’t know about you, but my hand is raised way up in the air. Why is it that chic dresses sometimes just leave us feeling a little too exposed?

Luckily, I just found an awesome solution. Keep reading »

How Old Is Too Old When It Comes To Miniskirts?

Today The Daily Mail has put an expiration date on wearing miniskirts: 35 years old, 65 years old, 55, 60, oh, and 40. (They had a bunch of lady writers chime in on their own how-old-is-too-old age, hence the differing opinions.) As was so nicely pointed out: “Celebrities such as Victoria Beckham, 35, Danni Minogue, 38 next month, Elle Macpherson, 46, Cindy Crawford, 43, Jennifer Aniston, 40, and Courteney Cox, 45, are all fans of the mini.” Sure, but that list of Hollywood ladies is also one seriously in-shape bunch. I would never deny them the right to a higher hemline simply by citing their ages. My two cents? The age thing is horses**t… Keep reading »

Pill Popping To Get Pretty

Everyone knows that prescription pills are available to anyone looking for them, if you know how to search online. Not that it’s a legal means—but abusing prescription painkillers isn’t all that lawful to begin with. A year or two ago, we all heard about people buying the no-joke acne medicine, Accutane, online—without a prescription or monthly blood tests to monitor your liver health—and drug abuse took a whole new turn into beauty-land. Now, The Daily Mail is reporting internet pill abuse has hit an all new, um, high, and it’s all in the name of beauty. The fight to be skinnier, prettier and clearer-skinned knows no bounds, apparently. We all know buying anything off the internet or eBay comes with a certain level of danger—you always wonder, is it the real deal? But buying MD Skincare peel pads is way different than purchasing something you actually ingest—right? Keep reading »

Fall ’09: The Death Of The Dress?

Dum, dum, DUM. With New York shows just around the corner and the temperature already taking its first dips well south of 70 degrees, the beginnings of fall are upon us—and I couldn’t be happier. Cozy sweaters, chic ankle length pants, full skirts, booties … OMFG. Bring. It. On. Much like every September before this one, I find myself chomping at the bit to start layering up and dragging my tights and boots out of storage. But as I envision all the new-again clothes I’m already mentally planning to wear, one very specific type of clothing is missing … the dress. For the first time in what feels like decades, I’m not looking forward to throwing on any dresses. This is a huge departure for me. Huge. And I’m not alone… Keep reading »
