I’m not sure where to begin, because this bag is pretty terrible on all counts. The first glaring issue is that it’s ugly. So yeah — Australian handbag designer Kirrily Johnston collaborated with Special K (yes, the cereal) to create this purse following the brand’s “Handbag Exposé,” which found that 79% of women don’t carry… READ MORE »

You guys, I found this awesome show. It’s called “Girls” and it’s really underground, I keep Googling it and nothing comes up! But seriously, Allison Williams is a total babe, nepotism be damned. This Donna Karan gown is the perfect neon fuchsia shade to stand out in, even when everyone else is wearing pink, too. READ MORE »

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is professionally hot, but her attempts to cross over into the acting realm have been tenuous. After all, she never really sold herself as an actress, just a model who — surprise! — happens to be both excruciatingly good-looking and decent enough at following directions, which was more than good enough for Michael… READ MORE »

I, along with the rest of the world, am under the clear impression that J. Lo can (and will) make anything work … except, maybe, for this crystal snake-embellished number. This is a dress that’s so striking on the runway and editorially, but de facto it is all kinds of crazy. Like, 24 different kinds… READ MORE »

The beauty industry is no stranger to the use of questionable practices. Demi Moore famously underwent a blood-sucking treatment by leeches, and Madonna was said to have been a fan of a solution that counted human placenta among its components. Even the seemingly untouchable Kate Middleton was recently outed for using bee venom in lieu… READ MORE »

Is it just me, or have GIFs become increasingly popular with the fashion set? First, the controversial “Haute Mess” GIFs for Vogue Italia, followed by Miu Miu’s hypnotizing handbag pornography. The next establishment to try their hand at the medium is Prada, who partnered with graphic designer Vahram Muratyan (of Paris versus New York fameREAD MORE »

Carine Roitfeld is one of the most recognizable names in the fashion industry, but she doesn’t have the same notoriety here in America as she does overseas, where the former Vogue Paris mogul is an icon with equal leverage to that other famous editrix, Anna Wintour. The felinic fashionista is also responsible for somewhat of… READ MORE »

Karl Lagerfeld never struck me as the type of guy who would cheerfully don a mankini, but I was so wrong. A new biography of Antonio Lopez, famed fashion illustrator and friend of Lagerfeld who died of AIDS in 1987, features photos of such ’70s icons as Halston and Liza Minnelli — even a young… READ MORE »

I’m just going to put it out there: Lindsay Lohan is no Elizabeth Taylor, and I, among others, find myself vaguely and inexplicably offended by Lifetime’s decision to cast her as such. It pains me to see anyone fanning the flames of the formerly great young actress’s delusions of grandeur, and being tapped to play… READ MORE »

To all those who have hopped on the pink hair fad with a high-fashion wink, it’s quite possible that you have Charlotte Free to thank for that. The model best recognized for her rose-hued tresses appeared on the scene last summer after being discovered by a photographer at a local arcade, and she’s become pretty… READ MORE »

At what point did I become so mortally jealous of Hermione? She went from a frizzy-haired child wizard to a bonafide style icon in practically no time at all — props! Emma, as anyone who’s anyone does, turned out in my fair city for the Tribeca Film Festival, which runs April 18-29, and last Saturday… READ MORE »

You can count on the Tribeca Film Festival and the events during it to provide a very eclectic crowd and, with that crowd, plenty of fashion fodder. Tuesday night’s turnout for the Chanel Artist Dinner at the glamorous Odeon was distinctly fashion-based, attracting designers, socialites, and — my absolute favorite — some of the modeling… READ MORE »

Growing up in the ’90s, I was crazy about Lisa Frank. Stickers, notebooks, folders, pencils — I had all of the school accessories, and though I was impossibly chagrined at the time, these days I am so thankful my mother never let me delve into the realm of her clothing and stuffed animals. That would… READ MORE »

I am generally involved in a passionate love affair with Mila Kunis’s wardrobe, both her decadent red carpet dresses (the lavender Elie Saab she wore for the 2011 Academy Awards was one of the most gorgeous things I have ever laid eyes on) and her low-key but chic off-duty ensembles. She has an amazing body… READ MORE »

If 69-year-old Calvin Klein’s (former) relationship with model Nicholas Gruber wasn’t weird enough already, it just got a little weirder: Gruber, 22, was charged with misdemeanor assault, resisting arrest, and possession of a controlled substance early Tuesday morning after he allegedly assaulted a man in his Greenwich Street penthouse. The 20-year-old victim, who had been… READ MORE »

In her spare time, Claire Danes is married to Hugh Dancy, so she must be doing something right. Like really, really right. Regardless, I like Claire, even more so as of late, since she’s been out and about doing press for her TV show, “Homeland,” being generally funny and quirky and not at all like… READ MORE »

Instagram is the latest billion-dollar craze, but you probably won’t see me hopping on the bandwagon. I am biologically averse to anything that leads millions of middle schoolers with iPhones to believe that they are, in fact, skilled photographers. The pictures aren’t terrible, but I hesitate to call anything produced by a smartphone app “art.” READ MORE »

I thought I could count on Emma Roberts to keep things sleek, chic, and under control, but not so. Coachella would be the perfect opportunity to let your freak flag fly, and Emma seems to have taken up that offer. Girlfriend is looking less than her usual classy self in a bizarre boob tube she… READ MORE »
