Zergnet: Simply Irresistible

Laura and Kate Mulleavy’s latest collection is awash in cerulean blue, bright purple and yellow prints. It’s sharp, bubbly and brimming with a joyfulness not seen in their previous collections. The reference point was Vincent Van Gogh’s Starry Night and Sunflowers, both of which could be seen liberally translated onto full skirts and slim dresses.

Well, imagine that. I have a total fashion boner for J. Crew’s Spring/Summer 2012 collection. Yeah, it’s basically more of the same from them, but the same is awesome. Fancy-lookin’ skirts dressed down by button-down shirts! Lady-like shapes unstuffy-fied (yeah, I made that verb up) by more colors than a bag of tropical Skittles! I’m in! Click onward to see some of my very favorite pieces and one gratuitous photo of a male model (center) I would like to make out with.
We’re having a royal blue moment. The color is so fiercely cheerful, you can’t help but be in a good mood while wearing it. Get into it! Ten great royal blue items after the jump!
Tonight’s the premiere of “America’s Next Top Model: All-Stars”! In honor of Tyra and her crew of also-rans, I have asked The Frisky staff to attempt their best smize or “Top Model”-ish pose for today’s “What Are We Wearing?” photos. We even did a group shot. (Jessica wasn’t feeling so “fierce” today and instead played the role of Nigel Barker.) What do you think? Would Andre Leon Talley invite us into his salon or scream “Dreckitude!” in our faces?
The new season of “America’s Next Top Model” premieres tonight, and while the returning “All-Stars” may consider themselves experts by now, it’s been a while since most of them lived in the infamous “Top Model” house. Coming fresh off last season, I feel it’s my duty to remind them of a few important do’s and don’ts while living in a house full of models. Of course, these pointers come from personal experience in Cycle 16, but let’s face it, with a few minor tweaks, most of these issues apply to any of the seasons. Then again, maybe they should ignore my advice altogether. A bunch of competing model hopefuls in one house makes for great television … especially when they are misbehaving!

So, I was flipping through the latest collections from NY Fashion Week and I came across American designer Thom Browne’s newest looks. Browne is more well-known for his menswear line, but this collection focused primarily on women. Or birds. Or lobsters. It’s just … out of control, from boxy shoulders, to outsized proportions, to fantastical sea creatures. You must see it to believe it!
“I Don’t Know How She Does It” is the kind of movie I will mercilessly mock and deny ever wanting to see, but then watch all the way through every single time it pops up on HBO. Other movies that fall into this category: “He’s Just Not That Into You,” “The Devil Wears Prada,” and “How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days.” (But not “Sex and the City 2.” Never that.) While I’ll be waiting a bit for this flick to hit the small-screen so I can watch it in secret, one thing I can doright now is critique the clothing worn by the ladies who attended the movie’s premiere last night.

Look at this picture and tell me this isn’t one of the best things you’ve ever seen. Nicki Minaj making small talk with Vogue’s Anna Wintour. Can you even imagine what they’re chatting about? Nicki’s probably all, “Lady, I like your floral situation,” while Anna sits by, quietly horrified by Nicki’s loud craft store-inspired get-up.

Women who demand respect often get exactly that. And why shouldn’t they? We not only deserve it, we should expect it. But there’s a tipping point when a woman’s demands jump the shark from self-respecting to totally high maintenance, or, as I like to call it, highmay. There are the obvious one-name offenders: Madonna and her overnight full body saran wrapping, Cher and her multiple costume changes. And then there are women who demand maintenance in ways that are less obvious, but just as lethal. She is “the worst kind,” as Harry so clearly explained to Sally. “You’re high maintenance but you think you’re low.” So girls and guys, I’m going to be like your cool older sister who bought your sorry 15-year-old ass beer from the Quickmart and offer you a few tips on how to preemptively spot a high-maintenance girlfriend. Because those dudes I described yesterday have company.
Gals, you can write your seemingly benign behaviors off as girly or cute, or you can see them for what they are—blinking red lights indicating you’re about to take the onramp to the highmay highway.
Guys, ignore the warning signs at your peril—unless, of course, you’re a glutton for punishment; then ending up with a woman who’s just like your highmay mother is probably inevitable.
Shiloh Jolie-Pitt, the world’s coolest child, was recently photographed (GASP!) sucking her thumb. Not that she seems to give a f**k if the world knows. But, of course, The Enquirer is very concerned. “Experts” warn that at almost six years old, Shiloh should have outgrown the habit long ago, and that she could have serious orthodontic issues. Or even worse … an anxiety disorder. Allegedly, Brad and Angie are bribing her to quit her thumb with a “special daddy-daughter camping trip.” If she doesn’t kick the habit now, she may end up a statistic. About ten percent of adults never stopped sucking their thumbs. And some of them just so happen to be celebrities. A warning to Shiloh: This could be you if you don’t get that thumb out of your mouth. Click through to see some adult celebrity thumb-suckers. [Celebitchy]
