Just What You Need: The Coat That’s A Tent!

Sure, a tent-coat combo sounds like an utterly ridiculous piece of clothing (it sort of looks more like a scarf than a coat, if you ask me), but these days who wouldn’t want one? I mean, hello? Just think about it: We are smack in the middle of sample sale season. What does that mean?

Wanna Work For Rachel Zoe?

Well, you’re in luck! But it’s not the opening you think. When Taylor left to go style on her own, many assumed Rachel would hire another style assistant and Brad would be first styling associate. Actually, the opening, according to the listing on Linked In, is for an Advertising Sales and Business Development Executive. According

Leighton Meester’s Bizarre (But Cool) Eye Shadow Trick

First, ignore the fact that not only did Leighton Meester play up her lips (bright red!), but also her eyes (major smokey shadow!) at the same time—I’m not a fan, but, hey, rules are created to be broken. Instead, let’s focus on the crazy interesting eye shadow trick she’s got going on: Shadow in her…

How To Rock Lip Liner The Right Way

Do you use lip liner? Mostly I find it a waste of time, but there are loads of reasons why I should get on the lip liner bandwagon: Lip color has more staying power, color doesn’t “bleed” or feather out of your lip borders and your lips do look ever so slightly bigger when they’re…

Do You Consider Your Skin Tone When Getting Dressed?

Love Julianne Moore. Don’t love Julianne’s choice of dress color. She looks a bit sickly, no? When it comes to picking out a dress or blouse, I swear people don’t bother to think about their skin tone. It’s funny because with anything makeup-related the first question is: “Will this work with my skin tone?” Um,…

Bobbing For Boobies

Win a prize, cop a feel! Claw vending machines in Japan have been known to offer bizarre-o prizes like live crabs or turtles, cigarettes, underwear, power drills and packages of American $2 notes—so, by comparison, these busty stress relief balls seem vaguely normal. Or not. [Inventorspot]…

Is This Half Snuggie Genius Or Fugs?

Designer Eryn Brinie is a fave of Rachel Zoe, Cameron Diaz and Jessica Alba—she’s got this vaguely Euro style going on with her clothes and focuses on basics. Well, I’m not sure if this is one basic or a combo of basics, but Eryn’s sleeve muffler scarf, with its multifunction personality, can be worn a…

When Was Your Last Massage?

In one of those US Weekly, she’s just like us moments, the paparazzi caught Sienna Miller in a NYC nail salon getting one of those ten dollars for ten minutes back massages. (There she is getting her rub down…) Now, honestly, when was the last time you ponied up for a massage. For me, I’m…

Do You Dress Up To Go Shopping?

Check out Rachel Bilson. She’s looking seriously put-together in her majah heels, chic black pants, fab Phillip Lim bag and pretty blow-out. (And her friend is looking adorable, too!) Where’s the party or red carpet, you ask? There isn’t one — she’s headed out for a day of shopping … looking so on top of…

How To Get The High (Very French-Feeling) Bun

Lately, it seems, we’ve been inundated with red carpet high buns—Charlize Theron loves ‘em, Rachel Bilson went high and tight recently, and SJP has sported the high bun for years. Mostly I shy away from the style because I think they look a bit too ballerina and also just too sweet on me—until now. I…

Which Is Your Favorite Designer Home?

Women in Need is NYC’s largest provider of shelter and vital services for homeless families. This year, they’re raising funds in a truly different and creative way: They asked a bunch of celebrities, designers, and athletes to custom-design a paper mache house around the theme “Home is where the heart is.” Let’s just say people…

10 Suggestions For Gemma Ward’s Retirement Plans

This just in: Supermodel Gemma Ward’s agent has officially announced that the Australian catwalk queen has retired from the fashion industry! if you’ve noticed, there hasn’t been much of Gemma lately; she’s been absent from magazine covers and, more notably, the past few runway seasons. The reason for her departure? She wasn’t as into modeling…

How Do We Feel About Nude Dining?

The Sub Rosa restaurant in Oregon serves food and drink with a side of music, and clothing is optional. The trend was initially started by the staff, who found themselves stripping down during a blistering hot day at an outdoor barbecue. (Seriously, what was that one about if you can’t take the heat?) Diners soo…

Love Nest: “Decorate” Your Non-Working Fireplace!

I was checking out Ryan Korban’s new interior design website this morning—he co-owns the super chic and English-y eclectic shoe shop Edon Manor, is besties with Alexander Wang (they went to school together), and has been designing Wang’s offices, etc., since day one—and happened upon this genius idea on how to make a non-working fireplace…

Tour A Vogue Fashion Assistant’s Home

We’ve all seen “The Devil Wears Prada” and caught a glimpse of Anne Hathaway’s character’s perfectly disheveled, and ginorm, downtown NYC apartment. (You wonder, if her boyfriend is a line cook and she’s an assistant, how do they pay the rent? Oh, yeah, it’s a movie.) Well, before you start thinking that movies imitate life,…

Do You Decorate Your Home Like You Dress?

I’m a less-is-more kind of gal, usually. I barely wear makeup, I’m almost always without any sort of jewelry on and, when I’m shopping, I look for more basic pieces and try to focus on their “cut” (though Forever 21 isn’t really a place to look for well-cut clothing, but anyway.). So, when I looked…

Fashion Writer Smackdown, Take 87

Remember that NY Times style writer Cintra Wilson, who claimed JC Penney was nothing but a “dowdy Middle American entity” catering to fat, overweight people (i.e., anyone over a size 2)? Well, the press is still giving her flack for it. (To which I say, rightly so, considering all the ignorance she’s spewed. Hell, the…

How To Get Pretty, Shimmery Shoulders

For some reason I’m always eying up womens’ shoulders. Unlike any other part of a woman, no matter what their size, shoulders always look sexy. And before you make a face, it’s not a pervy thing, I just think that it’s a seriously underrated body part. Haven’t we heard enough about legs and, jeez, boobs?

Love Nest: Get A Look Inside Casa Zoe

Oh, pul-ese, don’t even pretend to play like you don’t care to see inside Rachel Zoe’s home. The woman can style the hell out of an Oscar look, so you have to assume she’s got a pretty chic house, too. Well, you’d be correct. There’s lots and lots of white, broken up with hits of…
