The Couture Collections Are Here! Our 27 Favorite Looks From Day One

I love fashion, but the Paris couture collections make me absolutely giddy. These collections celebrate fashion as high art, and present frothy, impossibly constructed delectable creations that make grown women salivate. Of course, couture gowns cost in the tens and hundreds of thousands, so we won’t be buying one anytime soon, but that doesn’t mean we can’t look. The first day of couture week featured shows from Giambattista Valli, Christian Dior (currently helmed by Bill Gaytten), Chanel, Versace, and Alexis Mabille — and they did not disappoint. Click to see some of our favorite looks from the first crop of shows.

Nerdy Flirty
One writer talks about her nerdy flirting style. Read More »

We tend to think that coupling has gotten more — not less — complicated through the ages. But a simple perusal of these guides to flirtation from the late-1800s will have you thinking twice. Every flick of a fan, wink of the eye, or toss of a glove signified something to a potential suitor, so women had to be careful not to accidentally send the wrong message. Because trust us, there were zillions of them. Keep clicking for a comprehensive list — taken from the National Library of New Zealand — of the confounding and hilarious flirting signals Victorian ladies were expected to know in order to catch a man. Get your fans and gloves ready, ladies. [ListsofNote]

Meet The 2012 Puppy Bowl Starting Lineup!

So, Feb. 5 is the Super Bowl, which means the Puppy Bowl will also roll into town the same day for those of us who care way more about cute pups than pigskins. The annual festival of wagging tales and furry faces kicks off on the Animal Planet on Sunday Feb. 5 at 3 p.m. EST, and this year, rather than a typical kitten cheering section, the show will feature a piggy pep squad. So yes, we’ll be watching. Click through to see the starting lineup at this year’s Puppy Bowl!

10 Terrible Toilet Tales

Madam Leong Mee Yan adds a whole new meaning the saying “s**t or get off the pot.” The 58-year-old spent 902 days sitting on her toilet because she believed there was a force holding her down, which prevented her from standing up and leaving the bathroom. She also imagined stones being hurled and water being sprayed by “people she could not see.” She moved off the pot a total of 18 times in her more than two year stay — only to shower. Her husband brought her all of her meals on the toilet and she even curled up and slept there nightly. With an intervention from her son and the help of medical professionals, she has since been removed from the toilet and is receiving treatment for her delusions. [Digg]

This is a terrible toilet tale if ever I did hear one. I wouldn’t leave the toilet either if I thought I was going to be attacked by toilet gnomes. Click through for some more bathroom horror stories.

Field Guide: Scene Kid Hair

We need to talk about scene kid hair. I know this conflagration of wild color, straight ironing and intense bangs isn’t a new thing, but I’m a million years old, and I continue to be amazed and frightened by what teenagers do to themselves. You may be wondering: what’s a scene kid? Isn’t the term “scene” used to describe any specific genre of music listener? Not so! In this case, scene refers to kids that listen to a particular genre of music dubbed “scene” music, best categorized as “screamo/emo,” and exemplified by absolutely horrifying bands like Hawthorne Heights and Brokencyde, which are truly, truly the worst. Okay, I’m a little obsessed with Brokencyde.  

Scene kids give themselves stupid nicknames like Jeffree Star, Kiki Cannibal or Dani Gore. They wear a lot of eyeliner and skinny jeans. And they do a lot of online journaling and YouTubing. If you’re still confused, go to the mall and ask the teenager working at the Journeys or the As Seen On TV kiosk. 

Keep clicking for 10 definitive markers of Scene Kid Hair, to better recognize when you yourself might be in the presence of a real, live scene child. Enjoy!

Style Retrospective: Blake Lively

Blake's Breakup Advice

My, how Blake Lively has changed. I remember seeing her for the first time cast as the tomboyish soccer player Bridget in “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants.” I would have never suspected that the spunky blonde who I fondly associated with a golden retriever would soon snag the role of the glossiest reformed bad girl to ever hit the Upper East Side, let alone grow into the face of Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld’s favorite fashion female. Color me impressed. More remarkable still, Blake has been outspoken about her lack of stylist, which may have a little (or a lot) to do with some of her more … shall we say, ill-advised sartorial choices. One of the things I love most about Blake? She’s not afraid to get risky. Click through for a brief history of Blake’s style.
