That’s A Lot Of Look: Leigh Lezark Is Covered In Chains

Cavalli Vs. Karl
Roberto gives Karl a run for his money in the "weirdest designer" stakes. Read More »

Leigh Lezark, one-third of the notorious New York City-based DJ trio The Misshapes, generally dresses all sorts of fabulous: the Chanel ambassador (Karl loves her) sticks to a simple monochromatic palette and streamlined shapes punctuated by killer accessories. So. With that said. What fresh hell is this? What kind of occasion even calls for this sort of attire? What is the Calzedonia Summer Show Forever Together, and are there calzones? Because it sounds like a place where there would be calzones.

Who Had The Best Look In Black At The Tribeca Film Festival Vanity Fair Party?

The Tribeca Film Festival began with a bang last night with its star-studded Vanity Fair kick-off gala. Countless familiar New York City names were spotted at the annual event, from the festival’s founder Robert De Niro to “socialite” and headband-wearer Arden Wohl. This is New York City, after all, so naturally many of the partygoers were in head-to-toe black looks. Adorably preggers Evan Rachel Wood was radiant in a flattering black halter dress, and Sienna Miller looked rad in a short black-on-black floral frock that showcased her killer shoes. Both Karolina Kurkova and Rachel Roy chose pantsuit looks for the occasion, and Whoopi Goldberg looked like the awesomest good witch/cool aunt ever in her trademark Cool Flowy Black Thing. (I love Whoopi.) So! Who do you think wore black better at the Vanity Fair party? It’s a tough call, right?

Who wore it better?

I couldn’t tell you why, exactly, but bellybutton piercings viscerally repulse me. I should probably preface that by saying that bellybuttons viscerally repulse me, and a crystal stud right up in there does nothing for the biological aversion I feel in regard to that weird spot. Navels are just so human, you know? Like, there was a bloody fucking cord in there that attached you to your mother, which is weird enough, and then you had to go and stick a Swarovski (if you’re fancy) in for good measure? Ugh!

But that’s just my opinion. Obviously not everyone shares this sentiment, because enough people have rocked bellybutton rings in the past (and present!) for it to have been a Thing. (My mother texted me a couple of weeks ago to ask me if she should get hers done with her fellow bellydancers, which, again, is ugh on so very many levels.) And now that Beyoncé‘s gone and flaunted her navel jewel in her new H&M ads (why, Bey, why?), do we think it will make a resurgence? Don’t they get all crusty and grimy and get stuck to your sheets and maybe cause infection? I don’t know, man. Would you be willing to give this very ’90s trend another go? [Refinery29]

Your Daily Reminder That Men Are Capable Of Being Truly Terrible

I am in the midst of an apartment search right now. It is annoying, frustrating, and anxiety-producing, but it is just Something That Must Happen. Somewhat more exasperating than just looking for an apartment is the fact that I am also seeking a roommate situation, which has led me to where else but that great cesspool of all things terrible and soul-crushing, Craigslist. Just how soul-crushing could it possibly be?, you inquire, doubting my integrity and ability to separate Truly Bad Things from Simply Irritating Ones because I am a young and very sensitive woman inclined to hyperbole and melodrama. Here, I present to you an actual post I was led to by my innocent hunt for a suitable (female) housemate. I would now like to wash my hands, and then maybe sew up my vagina. Inquire within!

Can you say, aca-fuck yes? The Barden Bellas of “Pitch Perfect” are returning to a movie theater near you in 2015. The head of Universal Pictures has confirmed the studio’s plan for “Pitch Perfect 2,” with the original screenwriter Kay Cannon on board. Judging by what the actors have said in past interviews — and Sunday night’s MTV Movie Awards reunion performance — we’re willing to bet that the full cast, or at least the majority of it, will be back for a second round. Two words: Rebel Wilson. (And if you haven’t seen the movie by now… see it. Just do it.) [Slash Film]
