The elusive Kate Moss rarely does interviews, but on the off occasion she does, she manages to give some pretty entertaining sound bites. In an interview with Italian fashion weekly Grazia, the British supermodel discussed her frequent wardrobe malfunctions, her husband’s say in her sartorial choices (he likes her when she’s a “rock ‘n’ roll kind of girl”), and walking her new dog. That’s right: Kate Moss has a dog.

“I’ve got a dog. He’s eight months. So I’ve got a dog, and the dog’s making me more ‘day.’ It’s a nightmare. … I’m having to rethink everything. You can’t walk a dog in a heel. You look ridiculous.”

“Safe Tan” May Just Be An Oxymoron: Spray Tanning Joins The Club

Getting Tanning Mom
We're starting to understand Tanning Mom. Read More »

It’s universally acknowledged, if not necessarily heeded, that both tanning by sunlight and by booth can cause skin cancer, and now we’re being warned that something so seemingly innocuous as a spray tan could very well be our next death wish. Is there any safe way to get a tan anymore? Not so, if a new study conducted at the University of Pennsylvania is any indicator. When DHA, the chemical ingredient that serves to darken skin, was approved by the FDA in the seventies, it was only intended to be used as an ingredient in topical tanning creams. The problem arises when, as the chemical is dispersed into the air, it also enters the lungs by way of breathing. Keep reading »

What's going on? Literally everything. Read More »

Vintage flapper style has long been a fashion inspiration, especially with the promise of Baz Luhrman’s anachronistic, aesthetically thrilling “Gatsby” adaptation on our heels, but methinks Katy Perry may have taken the trend a bit too literally at last night’s City Of Hope gala. Her long, lacy silk slip is perfectly lovely, but the headpiece and haphazard pearls send the whole thing straight into Halloween costume territory. The silver mules are definitely retro, but not in a good way — they’re more bridge champion than pop star. Also, yin-yang nail art? Where is Katy trying to go with this? I’m confounded.

Lady Gaga covers Visionaire's largest issue ever. Watch »

Hi, welcome to Camp Lady Gaga Is Boring And Pretentious, population 1 and it’s me. I recognize that I am all but vastly, utterly alone in thinking that this “Lady Gaga” character is one of the most stale, uninteresting “personalities” to have ever made her mark on pop culture. David Bowie, Grace Jones, Madonna Ciccone for Christ’s sake — they did it first, and better. It’s not her image I take issue with, it’s the severe, and I think unmistakable, dichotomy between her mask and her music. She’s so avant-garde! She has a lobster on her head! She’s in a meat dress! She’s in an egg! It’s like the womb! Edgy! Individual! Born this way! Lazy, insufferable ra-ra-ra bubblegum pop cribbed from “Express Yourself,” tossed into the mass media music machine! She’s making a perfume called “Fame” that will be a black liquid with “the feeling and sense” of blood and semen and a bottle heavily “inspired by” Thierry Mugler’s Alien. She snagged the upcoming cover of this year’s Vogue September issue. Tell me why, you guys! When is this person going to do something that’s real and unique? I’m not going to hold my breath, but can we please move past Stefani Germanotta? Bring me the next Britney! Whatever happened to the punk rock pop stars?

Charlize Theron Sports A Freshly Shaved Head For An Upcoming Film Role

My Buzz Cut
Why this woman got a buzz cut. Read More »

Kristen Stewart and I have a few things in common, like smoking pot and sleeping with Robert Pattinson, but I would say that our most pronounced similarity is the fact that we both drool over Charlize Theron on the regular. In fact, I kind of share that with every red-blooded male and lady-appreciating female — she is the Regina George to my Janis Ian. It’s part envy, part obsession, and part give me your perfect son. You may notice that Charlize looks a little different here, a little less … having hair: the actress shaved her head for her upcoming role in “Mad Max: Fury Road,” and I think she is (in true “Mad Max” style) killing the buzzed look. I’m serious about baby Jackson though, Charlize better watch out. That kid is BEYOND. [Photo: FameFlynet] Keep reading »

Style Inspiration: Elizabeth Taylor

Elizabeth Taylor has long been on our style inspiration radar, but her memory is more alive than ever now what with that trainwreck Lindsay Lohan depicting her in a très highbrow Lifetime film. The horror! Elizabeth (who actually loathed being called Liz) was, unlike Lindsay, shambolic in the best way possible, the hottest mess that ever lived. She was a genetic mutant born with double rows of eyelashes, a violet-eyed lush and lover who was famous for her roles, her romances, and her prevailing kindness. Let’s not forget her fashion influence: she helped to bring Valentino and Halston into demand, and when she passed away last year, her jewelry collection was rumored to be worth well over $150 million. They just don’t make movie stars like Elizabeth anymore. Keep reading »

“I’ve stopped wearing makeup when I’m not working. For a while I thought I had dark circles and bad skin, and then I realized I was seeing myself that way because I didn’t recognize myself anymore without makeup. Now when I wear it, I think I look really weird!”

— Surprise, Leighton Meester is as far from her “Gossip Girl” character Blair Waldorf as humanly possible! This is so true — as someone who wears a full face of (admittedly light) makeup from when I wake up in the morning until I wash it off before bed, I’m sometimes appalled by my own foundation-free face because I’m so used to a false sense of perfection. I like to skip the spackle on the weekends so that I don’t forget what I look like. Leighton is on the cover of Lucky’s July issue, where she also talks about shopping for clothes at garage sales and thrift stores, and falling in love with everyone she meets all the time. A girl after my own heart in so many ways! [Just Jared]

Is Kate Bosworth just the prettiest, or what? Wednesday’s Theory and Saks-sponsored Whitney Art Party in NYC saw the 29-year-old actress and director beau Michael Polish all loved up after a heated public altercation at the CFDA Awards after-party on Monday night. I love this look, especially the Theyskens’ Theory shift: it’s simple without being underdone or boring, and the greyscale tones on her Giuseppe Zanotti sandals are the perfect complement to a little black dress. Spot-on for a Soho art party, if you ask me.

I have a mixed bag of emotions regarding Lana del Rey, but I’m pretty consistent with my love of her hair and makeup. Voluminous sixties-inspired bouffants paired with heavy-lidded cat eyes is just the type of thing I’m into, and Lana usually nails the look. Usually. Whatever’s going on here is so, so questionable: large and in charge with, like, a cluster of fake butterflies pinned to it? Could someone please explain this to me? I’m afraid I don’t understand.

The Good, The Bad & The WTF: Chanel’s “Little Black Jacket” Exhibit Opening

Chanel events always, without fail, draw an extraordinarily dressed crowd — Karl Lagerfeld, after all, only associates with the most fabulous of people (and yes, the same standard applies to his choice in pets). The Parisian fashion house feted the opening of a 113-photo exhibit to preface Lagerfeld’s upcoming photo book, a collaboration with former Vogue Paris editor-in-chief Carine Roitfeld. “The Little Black Jacket: Chanel’s Classic Revisited” features celebs like Sarah Jessica Parker, Kanye West, and Tilda Swinton celebrating — what else? — Chanel’s iconic little black jacket. If you’re in the New York City area, the exhibit opens Friday, June 8 (that’s tomorrow, y’all) at 18 Wooster St. and runs for a week, and the book comes out on August 15. If you can’t make it to check out the show, and don’t feel up to cashing out $98 for a book (me neither), here’s the next best thing: the good, the bad, and the “what in the name of Coco was she thinking” from last night’s event. Commençons!
