The rest of the world seems pretty happy about the fact that Katie Holmes has filed for divorce from Tom Cruise. The Telegraph titled their article on the split “Marriage Impossible?” Meanwhile, Amelia wrote, “Well, her contract must be up. Five years after they tied the knot in Italy, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are splitting.” Sherri Reed of The Stir took things a big step farther, writing, “Thank God, Katie Holmes has finally escaped that sham of a marriage … Run Katie run! Suri, take off your heels and run with her!”
So I know that I am in the minority in actually feel pretty bummed about this parting. Yes, Scientology freaks me out and I very much dislike the idea of religion where you buy your way in. But still, these two really did seem in love. And it’s always sad to see that end, no matter what.
After the jump, nine reasons I’m sad that Katie and Tom are no more. Keep reading »
We’ve stolen Miranda’s style on countless occasions, so it’s high time we start taking notes on the components that comprise her best looks and go from there. When the model mom is photoshoot-ready, she definitely looks the part, but on her off days she has the most uncanny way of dressing just like your super-stylish, willowy-limbed best friend. I theorize that the secret to Miranda’s sartorial success is all about jeans, jeans, jeans and, believe it or not, a very specific formula of sorts. Skinny denim and a loose top are often the most prominent ingredients in her style recipe — fitted, ankle-cut jeans create a streamlined silhouette, while a looser top plays with proportions to make you look long and lean. Many of Miranda’s most covetable outfits come directly from this mold, and additions like a cardigan, chic jacket, and flats, sandals, or booties enable this basic equation to go the extra mile. After the jump, tips and tricks for making the look work, and a peek at looks inspired by (but not copied from!) Miranda’s model style. Keep reading »
It’s not enough that model Anja Rubik is incredibly beautiful — she also seems to be really, effortlessly cool. And motivated! Rubik is about to launch the first issue of her new erotica-tinged mag, 25. The magazine will feature spreads with some of Anja’s best model friends, and interviews with some of her famous female friends. Rubik says she was wholly invested in making an erotica magazine that would represent the female gaze, so she enlisted a roster of female photographers for all the shoots. “It was bothering me how the world is nowadays – how we approach nudity and sexuality and beauty,” said Rubik of the venture. “Nowadays, sex and nudity is either so vulgar or so prude. So I wanted to create something inspiring, and beautiful, and sensual, to get people to think in a different way.“ [NYMag.com]

Why is Olivia Palermo still famous? Why is she still snapped by the paparazzi on a weekly basis? Why does she sit front row at every show from New York to Paris come Fashion Week? Here’s the truth: she’s pretty, she’s well-dressed, and she pretty much epitomizes everything there is to love and love to hate about the Manhattan faux-socialite. I say faux because, come on, an MTV show stint and an obscenely wealthy, corrupt father does not a socialite make… or does it? Whatever her cause célèbre may be, I always like to see Olivia looking gorgeous about town, especially with her equally gorgeous boyfriend. I want this outfit, but it probably cost more than my entire wardrobe. This is where Style Stealer comes in… Keep reading »
