If Your Little Girl Wears Crotchless Thongs, You Are A Bad Parent

If I ever have a daughter, I know what she’s getting for her seventh birthday: a crotchless thong, of course! No, but seriously, a Colorado woman was shopping with her children at Kids N Teen in Greeley Mall when she spotted the unthinkable: a tiny thong featuring a split down the crotch. Erin French snapped…

10 “Strange Or Sexy?” Celeb Red Carpet Moments

If there’s one place for a celebrity lady to step up her game, it’s on the red carpet. Whenever it’s rolled out, famous faces come out of the woodwork (do they exist when they’re not making public appearances? Important life questions) to show off what they’ve got. Classic, bizarre, avant garde — as we’ve seen, it’s all…

Winter Beauty: 7 Products To Help You Weather The Cold

Oh, dichotomous winter. I love your pretty snow, your brisk air, your holidays… but I loathe what you do to my skin, my hair, my lips! You turn my most powerful (ahem) feminine assets from soft, smooth, and silky to dry, breaking, and brittle. What ever shall I do?

The Perfect Red Lip

Unlike the vast majority of fashion enthusiasts, I wouldn’t call myself a Chanel obsessor. Though I covet old photos of Coco with a string of pearls and a cigarette, I refuse to idolize a Nazi spy, and Karl Lagerfeld is about as pretentious and boring as the bouclé suits the line is famous for. Many…

Fancy Ladies Are Wearing $55 Lipstick Made From Caviar

We’re all familiar with today’s notion of “luxury lipstick”: I, for one, am so desensitized that a $24 NARS price tag strikes me as a steal.  Enter Tom Ford, who practically bleeds couture. The high-end tastemaker was not the first to introduce the concept to the public, but at $48, his coveted gold-and-white metal tube…

Cee Lo’s new video for “Anyway” just came out, oh, five minutes ago and we are already obsessed. [YouTube]
I, for one, am glad that Kendall Jenner chickened out on her tattoo. First of all: she’s 16. Second of all: that is not proper French. Don’t do it, Kendall! [Us Weekly]

Get Your Drinkify On!

Lushes and music lovers (that’s all of us, then?): go ahead and add Drinkify to your list of fail-safe time wasters (if you have one; I do). The website is brand new, having been created over the weekend at Music Hack Day in Boston, and ooh, it is cool and I could do it all…

Domestic Inspiration: French Kitchen

Growing up, my mother always decorated our home in a Provençal fashion, so I have an inborn love of the elegant style. I’m also infatuated with the idea of a French kitchen, though my culinary skills are limited to microwavable rice in a packet. In my opinion, there is no culture more inspiring than the French.

Savvy Squirrel Prepares For Winter

Where do you store your nuts for the winter? This savvy British squirrel stashed hundreds of acorns in the exhaust pipe of a car. When the vehicle failed to start, the driver assumed there was a mechanical problem and called AA, a roadside rescue service. AA employee Andy Smith came to the scene, and wa…

RIP Heavy D: The Rapper’s Most Inspiring Tweets

I was saddened yesterday to learn of the death of Dwight Arrington Myers, better known as the illustrious Heavy D of Heavy D & the Boyz. He collapsed yesterday outside his Beverly Hills home, reportedly due to respiratory issues, and was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where he passed away. The self-proclaimed “overweight lover” of…

Lanvin’s Alber Elbaz Is Writing A Book

It’s not a secret that I have a lot of love for Alber Elbaz: there is no one in the fashion industry who seems more genuine than the Lanvin designer. He takes his job and his art very seriously, which is evident season after season in his masterful collections, and in quotes he always sound…

The Good, The Bad & The WTF: Glamour’s 21st Annual Women Of The Year Awards

Glamour held their 21st Annual Women of the Year Awards at Carnegie Hall last night, and some of the most bold-faced (female!) names in entertainment, politics, art, fashion, and social justice came out to show their support and recognize the often underrepresented causes that the Awards bring to light.

Adriana Lima Reveals Her Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show Diet/Starvation Plan

Wow. Adriana Lima has revealed how she preps for the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show and it sounds … sucky. Adriana works out with a trainer every day, lifting weights, boxing, and jumping rope — which sounds normal for someone whose body is their livelihood — but beginning three weeks ago, she’s been exercising twice a

The 15 Best Celeb Sparkly Dress Moments

I think of Anne Hathaway as an arbiter of class. I speak for myself, but I’ve never heard or read anything that depicted Anne to be any less than a contemporary Audrey … except for maybe the financial crimes of her ex-BF, but we can’t hold that against her. Earlier this week, Anne attended the…

A New York City man referring to himself on Twitter as Mister PeePee  has taken it upon himself to masturbate in every single Starbucks bathroom in New York City and then “rate” the “results” on some newfangled Boner Scale. (Jeez, talking about loving the pumpkin spice lattes!) According to the blog Gothamist, he has ambitiously…

Lady chefs and home goddesses alike, take note: your kitchen presence isn’t destined to be bland in white cotton.

5 Runway To Real Life Beauty Looks

Fashion begins on the runway. Once the seasonal collections are shown, the standard is set for labels everywhere, who work to emulate — but not copy — the hottest catwalk trends. The clothes we purchase from stores such as H&M, Zara, and Urban Outfitters all have one thing in common: they’re often loose interpretations of…

10 Products Inspired By Dia De Los Muertos

I don’t know about you, but I feel like Halloween always leaves something to be desired. Every year, it’s preceded by the usual hype, promising a debaucherous night for all involved. But, um, I find that it’s never really that good. I’m always glad when Halloween is over, and it makes me especially happy that…
