Here are 10 stripey pieces in bright colors and summery silhouettes, from dresses and skirts to the cutest slip-on sneakers ever …

Real Girls, Real Beauty: Gorgeous Goths

Goths are a very dark and secretive group — and they’d probably want to crawl up in a hole and die if they knew we were suggesting you emulate their makeup stylings. However, goth make up — in doses — is really awesome. Who doesn’t love a dark eye, or a dark lip, every once in a while? It’s so dramatic! We scoured Tumblr to find some images for gothy inspiration and came up with a few to get you on your way. The key with goth makeup seems to be eyeliner, eyeliner, eyeliner. Play around with it — use your eyeliner as an artist’s pencil, and have fun! It’s not life or death (even though some goths might have you believe otherwise).

It grieves me to see Nicolas Sarkozy leave French office, and why? Because I am positively enraptured by his wife (okay, fine, I’m also really worried about what this means for anti-Semitism in France). Her life (and Wikipedia page) reads like a dramatic novel: a nine-year-old heiress to a tire fortune moves to Paris to flee a wave of kidnappings by a revolutionary group active in Italy and later leaves her prestigious art school at age 19 to become a model. I’m sorry, is that a bit of an understatement? In the ’90s, Bruni earned an average of $7.5 million a year working for houses such as Christian Dior, Givenchy, Yves Saint Laurent, and Chanel, which landed her well among the ranks of the highest-paid fashion models. She dated both Eric Clapton and Mick Jagger at varying points during her career before quitting fashion in 1997 to become an incredibly successful pop singer in France.

Carla Bruni has always been influential, to say the least, but her worthy presence in the gossip pages was all but solidified in 2007 by her marriage to the newly divorced Sarkozy after a four-month courtship. The star underwent a sort of moral metamorphosis (before meeting Sarkozy, she had proclaimed herself as “forever left wing”) and has been tabloid fodder since, yielding criticism from every direction. Her luxe wardrobe sparked controversy as the nation succumbed to a recession, not to mention the publication of compromisingly risqué photographs from her modeling days. As far as First Ladies go, I daresay Bruni is — was — as scandalous as they come. She’s also the most chic, with a predisposition to innately glamorous, infinitely expensive dressing. Keep reading »

10 Photos That Illustrate Why Jesse Williams Should Play Finnick Odair In “The Hunger Games” Sequels

Did you hear that? That noise? That’s the sound of racist Hunger Games fans losing their racist minds over the rumor that actor Jesse Williams (“Grey’s Anatomy”) is being considered for the role of Finnick Odair, one of the most popular characters in the second and third books in the Suzanne Collins’ trilogy. (And I was just getting used to the quiet following the Rue and Thresh ridiculous racist hullabaloo…) Williams, you see, is half-black. “Um, Finnick is supposed to be Caucasian,” wrote more than a few disgruntled fans of the series on various message boards online. A man of color can’t possibly play the dashing Finnick!

Hell. Yes. He. Can. Keep reading »

11 Foodkinis You Probably Shouldn’t Swim In, But Can Definitely Snack On

I don’t know about you, but being out in the sun for long stretches of time makes me very, very hungry. I would happily consider wearing a bikini that would both protect me from the sun and from hunger. So what if I can’t wear it while I swim? At least I won’t have to pack a sandwich. This pizzakini is perfect for poolside tanning and snacking — two of my favorite summer activities. Click through to see some more fabulous foodkinis. [The Clearly Dope]
