Say what you will about (kooky/krazy/kreepy) Karl Lagerfeld, but when it comes to his creative directorial role at Chanel, the man is aces. Filmmaker Trevor Undi took Karl’s vision and interpreted it into this hypnotic 2 and a half-minute video comprised of clips from the French fashion house’s Paris-Édimbourg Métiers d’Art 2012/13 runway show, which took place in a castle in the Scottish highlands. Never before have runway-side iPhone photographers looked so, well, otherworldly. [Vimeo]

Makeup Bag: The Best Of Blotting Papers For Summertime Skin

There’s nothing sexier than a sweaty face in the summertime, am I right? As the self-proclaimed Sweatiest Person of All Time (no wonder everyone wants to date me!), I’m kind of an expert when it comes to the best methods of controlling oily skin when the temperatures rise. First things first: as little clothing and makeup as possible, naturally, and blotting papers. Let your powder compact hit the floor and pick up one of these five tried-and-true packs of oil-absorbing sheets for clear, controlled skin all spring and summer long… Keep reading »

Earth Month Beauty: 5 Natural Face Cleansers For Every Skin Type

As you may or may not already know (you probably do), April is Earth Month, which means it’s prime time to educate yourself about all things good and green. Switching to natural beauty products, particularly skincare (I’m not about to part with my heavy-duty, chemical-laden concealer), can be crazy beneficial to all skin types — sulfates in facial cleansers are drying, irritating, and can potentially cause cancer. Cool! Unfortunately, products with better ingredients often translate to more expensive products, and there are so many on the market now that it can be difficult to choose the right one for you. These 5 natural, sulfate-free facial cleansers, which range from $11 to $46, are all tested and true, and there’s bound to be one that suits your skin type and routine… Keep reading »

Serious question: does Karl Lagerfeld owe his notoriety more to his fashion design prowess or his very polarizing public persona? I’d say it’s a toss-up, but regardless, as far as Fashion People Fame Levels go, he ranks at the top of the charts. The delightfully bizarre Roberto Cavalli may be finding himself slightly envious of Karl’s larger-than-life media presence, because the eccentric Italian designer is throwing some major shade at the Chanel head honcho. He said of Lagerfeld in a recent interview, “Just because you are an artist you don’t have to dress like that. … He looks ridiculous.”

Interestingly, I don’t think they dress all that differently aside from the obvious disparity, which is that Roberto (at left) invariably appears to have bathed in a vat of self-tanner while Karl is pretty much white all over. Also, the former is rarely spotted in a fully-buttoned shirt. As you do! Listen, I say we settle the score with a fashion face-off… and I don’t mean Chanel vs. Cavalli. Let’s go, boys! (This will never happen.) [StyleBistro]

Here are some things that stoners might need: Netflix Instant (specifically, every season of “Law & Order: SVU”), a soft blanket, assorted snacks, a nap, a dog to pet, definitely a glass of water. But … a stoner awards ceremony? Isn’t that a little … ambitious? I’m exhausted just thinking about it. Alas, the weird world of Reddit and its stoner subreddit, r/trees, has decided to inaugurate The Munchies, “an annual feel good event for 4/20.” No word yet on what the categories will entail, but they’ll all be user-submitted and then voted upon. And if you have any questions about this event’s legitimacy, consider this: the whole thing is endorsed by legendary pothead Snoop Dogg Lion himself, and he’ll even be there to announce the winners by video on — yup — 4/20. I’ll be tuning in… that is, if I’m not too faded to remember. [Betabeat] [Photo of a guy smoking weed from Shutterstock]
