We were far from the only ones to be seriously stunned by Rick Owens’ above-and-beyond runway step show — it’s being called “one of the most innovative and exciting fashion shows” of recent recall. New York-based singer-songwriter Arin Lawrence, who performed as part of The Soul Steppers (just one of four groups featured in Owens’ READ MORE »

Jigga what? The Brooklyn-born rapper-turned-multimedia mogul, looking characteristically cleaned-up in a stark white suit, will line November newsstands on the cover of Vanity Fair. Jay Z has always given good interview, but a VF cover story is another matter entirely … and if the excerpts from the piece are any indication, Young Hov delivers. The… READ MORE »

I have been achingly cool for almost as long as I can remember, but circa fifth and sixth grade was the absolute low point of my coolness. I know it’s hard to imagine, but I was really, really lame — I’m talking Hot Topic wardrobe, greasy hair, Transitions lenses … it was a rough couple of… READ MORE »

I, for one, would never even begin to entertain the idea of venturing naked into a haunted house. I’m scared enough being naked in my own bedroom by myself, let alone in the vicinity of strangers, and also while in a FUCKING HAUNTED HOUSE. Thanks but no thanks, Sinking Spring, PA, and your Naked and… READ MORE »

Did Justin Bieber learn absolutely nothing from his interventional tête-à-tête with Zach Galifianakis last week? Yesterday’s visit to the Great Wall of China was a fantastic opportunity for the ol’ Biebs to score a bit of cultural enlightenment — hell, maybe the experience could even serve to humble the bratty pop star. Alas, in true… READ MORE »

The “silver men” of Times Square and other such tourist hotspots have one job and one job only — to stand completely stationary, no moving, no blinking, like a statue, as droves of out-of-towners, some less affable than others, photograph, video tape, pose with, and otherwise dehumanize them. (And, no, that doesn’t even begin to… READ MORE »

“Recently I’ve become a square … I hate partying. I don’t know if it’s my heels — I don’t like standing up in my heels for hours. I don’t know if it’s that, but I’ve been so bored of it … I tell you, I’m a bit of a square recently. Don’t feel bad for… READ MORE »

My sincerest apologies to those designers who were scheduled to show on the last four days of Paris Fashion Week. You’re all going to need to go home now; Rick Owens just killed the damn thing. The avant-garde designer, beloved for his “luxury gothic” sensibility and his most glorious leather jackets, eschewed all traditional runway… READ MORE »

In the context of fashion, the term “aspirational” only goes so far. A $500 pair of shoes, a $1,000 dress, a $2,000 purse: these things are aspirational, to be sure. But a $4,150 Dolce & Gabbana gold-plated Swarovski crystal crown? That veers straight off the track of aspirations and directly into “fucking ridiculous” territory. Which… READ MORE »

There are very few earthbound humans (to my knowledge, at least) who do eccentric better than Cher. At age 67, with over 40 years in the industry under her belt, she’s as fabulously nutty as ever, and has just released her first album in 12 years. To wit: Us Weekly has a typically unremarkable celebrity-penned… READ MORE »

Ah, yes, just what the Internet needs: one more myopic blonde celebrity so enamored of her perfect, precious life that she’s deluded into genuinely believing that she can help you, yes, you, you darling humble peon, attain a similar perfect, precious, curated life.

Lovers of fashion, lovers of drama, lovers of crazy, lovers of Gina Gershon, lovers of Lifetime original movies: LOOK ALIVE, because “House of Versace,” premiering October 5, has all y’all covered — and in neon animal print and diamond studs, to boot.

If you live in New York City, or if you’ve ever paid a visit to the fair metro during a Jewish holiday, there’s a good chance you’ve witnessed this fairly common practice: an Orthodox Jewish man, or perhaps two or three, dressed in traditional garb, stands on a street corner, asking select passersby if they’re… READ MORE »

If you’re at all sensitive to the plights of one unhinged Justin Bieber, get ready to feel uncomfortable! As for the rest of us, who have been waiting patiently in the wings for some seemingly responsible adult to call Biebs out on his bullshit … who better to step up to the plate than Zach Galifianakis?

Man, do I love a good Bill. Murray, Cosby, Clinton, Nye, Gates… I’ll take ‘em all. Bills are just the best!

Let’s hope this will one day extend to apply retrospectively, too… A new piece of California legislature, signed off on by Governor Jerry Brown, has the potential to clear up a whole slew of problems for the minors of the future.

When I decide it’s high time for me to procure myself some fast food French fries, the last (last!!!!!!) thing on my mind is their caloric content.

Another Fashion Week, another heap of headlines reaming out the industry for the lack of diversity on the runway — it’s not to suggest that the conversation is overplayed, but rather that the long-standing issue remains an issue, season after season. Most designers, as a general rule, in a notoriously judgmental climate, cast black and… READ MORE »
