Don’t bother asking me whether I’m a dog person or a cat person, because I have immeasurable affection for both species. (I also love, though strictly from afar, foxes, coyotes, wolves, lions, leopards, and essentially anything else you might find on your average safari.) But I’ll confess: I cultivate a soft spot for felines that runs deep. I strongly identify with their capricious temperaments, desire to hide for days beneath beds, couches, and appliances, and frank disinterest in displays of physical affection except when it suits them. Okay, so I’m probably going to be alone for the rest of my life, but at least I’ll have cats, and these adorable gold Vermeil Cat Face Studs. I might as well have a sign on my face that says, “Don’t touch unless I’m purring.” [$32, Catbird]

How do you like Emily Blunt‘s new lighter hair? I think it looks gorgeous ― I recall reading somewhere that she’s actually a natural blonde, so it makes sense that this new shade flatters her coloring so nicely. This makeup is so simple and pretty, but the softly gilded touch around her eyes makes it festive enough for any holiday celebration (and, as you can see on Emily, looks stunning with similarly toned jewelry). Low on product and maintenance, this look is gorgeous no matter how long you’ve been out in the cold. I’ll show you how to get it, after the jump! Keep reading »

The Good, The Bad & The Meh: The 2012 British Fashion Awards

Everything is better in England, if slightly more damp, and the style is no exception. I mean, they have Alexa Chung! We have … Miley Cyrus. The annual British Fashion Awards celebrate the creative success of British designers and other fashion industry talent ― Stella McCartney was the grand winner this time around, taking home two awards as both the Designer of the Year and Designer Brand of the Year. Ms. Chung scored the British Style honor for the third year in a row, naturally, and relative newcomer Cara Delevingne was the top choice for Model of the Year. But forget what they won; what did they wear?

The ever-classy and compelling Jessica Chastain is one of the last Hollywood actresses I would ever expect to get scantily clad for a lad mag, yet here she is on the cover of British GQ! And hey, she could teach some of our more indiscriminate starlets a thing or two, because girlfriend looks smokin’. I had no idea she had such great boobs! (Still no word on why her mouth is hanging dumbly ajar in every shot, but you know photographers are always pulling that shit.) I’m not one for war movies, but I have to admit I can’t wait to see “Zero Dark Thirty,” especially with Jessica as the leading lady. Check out more photos from inside the magazine, after the jump!

Are you in search of the perfect clothes to emphasize your man’s “very sexy bod” this holiday season? Would you like for them to have cutouts in the shoulder area and perhaps a hand or two around the crotch? Does your guy maybe, just maybe, need a $250 bandeau bra with LED lights on the nipples? If you answered yes to all of these questions, and I know you did, look no further than Yoko Ono’s limited edition “Fashions For Men” collection, now available at Opening Ceremony. The 18-piece line is based on a book of sketches the artist gifted to John Lennon on their wedding day, which she was inspired to create “with love for his hot bod” because her man was “looking so great.”

So if your man’s bod has been looking very sexy lately, you should absolutely, no question, purchase him a pair of $250 Cutout Trousers, complete with a circular sheer mesh panel in the butt area. If you’re trying to stay on the more frugal side of things this Christmas or Hanukah, we think the $75 Butt Hoodie will suffice. Either way, your guy is bound to love whatever you choose from this can’t-be-missed collection. You can both be sure that it will emphasize his hot bod beautifully. [Opening Ceremony via The Cut]

Emmy Rossum Would Like To Take You On A Sentimental Journey

Emmy Rossum is disconcertingly insufferable in that never-turns-down-a-party-invitation, thinks-she’s-way-more-famous-than-she-actually-is Lea Michele way that makes me want to be like, “Go home, Emmy Rossum.” (Oh, and she dated Adam Duritz, which ew.) Admittedly, she does have a pretty good voice, which she showcased to much acclaim in “The Phantom of the Opera,” but with a cover like this and a name like “Sentimental Journey,” what self-respecting person would ever purchase her new album?

Kim Kardashian looks classy and put-together, with all errant body parts neatly tucked in and a skin color more closely resembling that of a human being than a leather satchel. Dare I say she even looks… expensive? For a woman worth hundreds of millions who usually looks as if she blew her $20 allowance in the clearance section at Charlotte Russe, then picked up a couple extra accessories and makeup tips from the traveling circus on the way home, this is highly unusual. And good. It’s good. Thanks, Kanye.

I think Jared Leto might be wearing a tiny bit of foundation. Just a little. But more importantly, where the fuck are his eyebrows? Can somebody get a GPS on this? It’s urgent.

Clothing mannequins are weird whichever way you spin it ― they’re headless! They’re probably watching you! ― but they’re something of a necessary evil in retail to display how featured articles of clothing hang on, well, a human body. Unfortunately, this “human body” is usually a pretty terrible representation of not only how the clothing looks on, but also an actual human body. Maybe a select demographic of those shopping at any given store have those kinds of dimensions, but the fact is that the vast majority of people don’t. You might know this already, but human beings come in all shapes and sizes, so the concept of a plus-sized mannequin in a plus-sized store has the potential to be a positive development. If it’s done correctly, that is. Keep reading »

Look for Casey on the runway in January!

Andrej Pejic, the androgynous, biologically male beauty who rose to notoriety as a working female model, ushered in the changing tides of a new non-gender conformative face to fashion. Cast in editorial and runway positions that were previously only filled by women, he became the singular poster child for a generation unencumbered by the trappings of traditional gender roles.

But don’t ask Casey Legler about terms like gender identity and gender expression: for the New York City-based “art maker,” the topic is not sex, it’s freedom. “It would be a really beautiful thing if we could all just wear what we wanted, without it meaning something,” says the former Olympic swimmer ― so it seems an understandable, if not expected, progression that she, at a striking, willowy 6’2″, is one of the first (if not the first) women to be signed exclusively to a men’s modeling contract.
